IRANIUM FREE FOR A WHILE
The hour documentary IRANIUM is free for a short period of time. For those interested in the history of the Middle East, it is not only well worth watching but it is a grim reminder of the stakes at play in Egypt today not only for us but first and formost for the Eygptian people whether or not they wish to acknowledge the similarity.
Let me just add - I visited Iran for the second time six month prior to the revolution and it was half boomtown and half price inflation. Yes, then, too, the price of bread was a major issue and the uprising did not surprise me. The consequences did. Iran has never struck me as a fanatical place. Nor was poverty rampant. Iranians were fed up with a corrupt regime. America tried to show it dares chastice its friends. Shia Islamists saw their opportunity and we all, most especially Iranians have been paying since.
Now the Sunni Islamists are seeing their opening and we all, most especially Egyptians, are about to pay henceforth. This movie may be not only a story of the past but a blue print of the future.
Let us not forget the brave Iranian youths risking their lives for freedom
