Subject:  Islamic Republic asks the UN to send peace keeping forces to
Britain, offers to send armed Baseejis

BBC reports 
<http://www.bbc.co.uk/persian/iran/2011/08/110811_l33_iran_uk_military_riots
_escalation.shtml?s>  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.
