Dear Friends and members of activistchat.....much has been said regarding allegations surrounding the UK in Iranian affairs.

For those who enjoy research and debate, and getting to the truth of the matter, one can simply go to the following URL, type in the word "Iran" into the seach bar, and Wahla!

I copied simply the first page of reference....as example.

good reading....

I do not mean bombing civilians but let us say killing members of the military using their own guerrillas to do so, whether in Latin America or Iran. I think it is perfectly possible to argue for change in Iran without saying that terrorist acts are the way to do it. .....

19 March 2004 Third Report Iran


http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200304/cmselect/cmfaff/80/8002.htm
-------------------

Click here to view the Government's response to the Third report from the Foreign Affairs Committee on Iran


http://www.fco.gov.uk/Files/kfile/969804_CM6198.pdf


-----------------

I find that the majority of the conclusions drawn have been proven incorrect and utterly devoid of vision, blind to the intent and realities of the regime's goals.

I do not however see any sinister intent on the UK's part, just a great misunderstanding of the implications of "engagement".

This perhaps is due in part to the fact that diplomatc relations had only recently been re-established in 2001.

As well, to be fair, it should be noted that "engagement" was considered "conditional" on the regime's ability to reform on democratic and human rights lines, to move closer to an international normality in treatement of its citizens.

Much concern was indeed expressed in this report, as well as FCO's response.

Nevertheless, it based policy on incorrect conclusion, and premised the policy decisions based on false assumtion that the IRI was indeed committed to reform under Khatami's leadership.

regards,

Oppie
