Negotiating With Syria But Not Iran Is Hypocrisy

Fast running out of "enemies," Obama Iran "crisis" next on the menu; White House perpetual fear-mongering and never ending "crises" a pathetic attempt to deflect from ongoing Snowden revelations - and the entire world knows it

"For neither man nor angel can discern Hypocrisy, the only evil that walks Invisible, except to God alone." -John Milton, "Paradise Lost."
 
 
Muslims in Iran hold vigil to honor those killed on 9/11 and to support America (September, 2001 – back when the world supported us)
Despite having toppled Iran's popularly elected leader, Mohammad Mosaddeq, and then initiated a reign of terror that imprisoned, tortured, and killed thousands of political and religious opponents; after 9-11 both Iran's ReligiousLeader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and Iran's President, Mohammed Khatami, condemned the attacks in no uncertain terms, offering unconditional support and all kinds of economic and medical assistance.

Regardless of militarily aiding and encouraging Iraq's President Saddam Hussein to invade their country, resulting in hundreds of thousands of casualties, including assisting Hussein in using chemical weapons against them; millions of Iranians held vigils for the 9-11 victims, even as some in the Arab world cheered the attacks and vowed to do the same. Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad later prayed and laid a wreath at the site. 
 
 
Iranians throw flowers in the Persian Gulf to mark the 24th anniversary of the downing of Iran Air Flight 655 by the US navy, in the port city of Bandar Abbas on July 2, 2012
Although the U.S. and one of its warships, the USS Vincennes, shot down an Iranian civilian airliner over the Persian Gulf in Iranian waters, killing all 295 passengers and crew members including 66 children; years later Iran helped the U.S.-led coalition against Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda in Afghanistan
 
 
 
They have also offered the U.S. military intelligence assistance in helping to defeat terrorists in the region.

In spite of continued economic sanctions against Iranians, even crippling some aspects of their economy; when the U.S. preemptively invaded Iraq and then militarily occupied it, and as Iraq was undergoing sectarian violence with hundreds being killed on a weekly basis, Iranians offered to assist in substantial peace talks. They provided humanitarian aid for millions of refugees too that had resulted from the U.S. invasion.

In spite of corporate and military lobbies continually pressuring the U.S. Congress and the President to declare war on Iran, even wanting to again invade and re-occupying it; after the BP Gulf Oil spill Iran offered technical assistance and aid. Iran has also offered numerous conciliatory solutions in resolving the U.S.'s unconditional stance that it must cease nuclear enrichment, even if it is only being used for civilian purposes.

Even though Israeli lobbies and religious organizations meet regularly with congressional and executive members to try and persuade them to dismantle Iran, and even though Israel is the only nation in the region that has a nuclear armory and acts like overlords to three million Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza; Iran's benign relationship with the Jews stretching from antiquity until now is never recognized.

Hypocrisy is the false claim of having admirable principles and beliefs. It is expecting others to behave with higher moral standards than one's own self. It is also a form of lying and a moral lapse, especially since it takes great effort and conscious endeavors to deceive others. Most important and since it assumes that individuals and nations represent themselves as they really are, hypocrisy is a breach of trust.

Negotiating with Syria over its chemical and biological weapons programs but not with Iran is pure hypocrisy. With Iran, American Exceptionalism has more often been American Exclusion and American Hypocrisy. Given the U.S.'s shady and brutal past in dealing with Iran and its people, the U.S. not only owes Iran a new era of peaceful dialogues and negotiations, but a new era of apologies.

Sadly, U.S. hypocrisy and its invisibility-at least to many Americans-towards Iran has caused many possible paradises to be lost.
