the
president of Islamic Republic of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has asked the
United Nations to send to Britain peace keeping forces to protect civilians
attacked by the British police.  The commander of Baseeji (Mobilization)
forces of Islamic Republic has offered to send some of its units as part of
such peace keeping force.  The United Nations Security Council has a long
history of authorizing  "peace keeping" forces to be sent to various
countries around the world to protect civilians, etc.

This propaganda campaign by the Islamic Republic of Iran has the merit of of
showing how the shoe can be on the other foot. Sadly, large majority of the
people of the Western nations, including some socialist minded
currents/individuals, are so do used to the prevailing imperialist culture
that they support imperialist intervention for various "humanitarian" or
other reasons but will find a parallel position coming from governments of
the South unimaginable.
