Those of the 99 percent know what it’s like to suffer under the current economic conditions.  How do you feel about the United States intentionally wrecking another country’s economy to inflict such suffering on all the people (the grandmothers & grandfathers, men, women and children) who happen to live there?

“The Iran sanctions effort led by the United States appeared to be causing new fractures in the Iranian economy on Tuesday . . . Iranian leaders have acknowledged that the sanctions are causing deprivations in the country by severely restricting international financial transactions and sales of crude oil, Iran’s main export. . . . Those financial sanctions, including the recent expulsion of Iran’s central bank from a global financial communications network, have reverberated through Iran’s economy”

We destroyed Iraq, caused mass destruction there with guns and bombs, and we destroy its neighboring country, Iran, with economic warfare.  The U.S.  is a war criminal any way you slice it.  People in the OWS, Occupy Wall Street Movement, are not ignoring this.    See for example  http://www.campaigniran.org/casmii/index.php?q=node/12101 .

Did you learn in school, by the way, that the United States overthrew the democratically elected government in Iran in 1953 and installed the dictator Shah of Iran as its puppet?  See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1953_Iranian_coup_d%27%C3%A9tat#U.S._role.   The United States supported both Iran and Iraq in their war in the 1980’s with each other.  See http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Genocide/Amer_Genocide_Middle_East.html In short, our war crimes against the Iranian and Iraqi people have never ended . . .
