Western imperialism’s war-mongering against Iran: End imperialist aggression and sanctions!

Over the past weeks tensions between Iran and the West have been moving towards a boiling point. The imposition of strict sanctions by the US and its allies is already being felt in Iran and threatens to cripple the economy. Alongside these sanctions, military excursions into the Gulf on both sides, Iran’s test firing of missiles, the assassination of Iranian scientists, the bringing down of an unmanned US drone by Iran, and a constant war of words is threatening to cause an armed clash between Israel and the United States on one side, and Iran on the other.

The Mistake of Hugo Chavez and Various Leftists

Following the much controversial Iranian summer elections, Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez was among the first in the international community to publically express support in what he viewed as the legitimate victory of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Chavez owes his democratically elected victories in Venezuela as a champion of progressive and pro-working class legislation and on the promise of extending those gains in a country where more than 80% live under the poverty line. On the other hand, the Islamic Republic is a theocratic state where electoral candidates must pass the judgment of unelected mullahs and where anti-worker legislation is fierce.
