IRAN IS SEEN BY THE LENS OF USIA IN THE BRAZILIAN PRESS

by Fábio de IOliveira Ribeiro Sunday, May. 16, 2010 at 12:46 PM

Official American propaganda contaminates the Brazilian press.

I have just read in the Internet the following concerning the visit of Lula (Brazilian President) to Iran:



"Diplomacy of Lula is obstacle the proposal of Obama of to liberate world of nuclear weapons and to impede that Teheran develops them."



http://ultimosegundo.ig.com.br/mundo/com+ira+brasil+desafia+politica+externa+dos+eua/n1237620049817.html



It is really notable as some Brazilian journalists invert the facts to be to the in the field of the foreign policy dictated by the White House. But same despised, the facts are there and they have been until announced by the same press that refuses to extract of them the appropriate conclusions.



The facts:



1 - From the Islamic Revolution the regime of Teheran has constantly been threatened by the Americans.



2 - During the first War against Iraq, a civilian Iranian airplane went cowardly dropped to shots by a American hunt. Iranian civil facilities in the border with Iraq were sabotaged there is very little time for Americans or with his help;



3 - In Iraq, as all they are tired to know, the Americans demonstrated all his criminal disposition of using the rude force whenever well they understand besides using lies as excuses (the famous WMDs of Saddan Hussein that were not found because they didn't exist or whose inexistence was irrelevant because the Americans wanted war the any cost).



4 - The military doctrine of the preventive attacks was not totally abolished by the Obama administration. Besides, own Obama announced his disposition of using nuclear weapons when it finds necessary (Iran is in the list of objectives and any nation can be increased to the same after some propaganda).



All of the facts well considered, being adopted a balanced and distanced perspective, the Brazilian press should admit that the Iranians are rights to feel threatened and to give credibility to the threats done by the White House. Therefore, the desire of the regime of Teheran to obtain equivalent defense means to the that disposes his eventual aggressor should perfectly be considered natural. But not. The Brazilian journalists insist on judging the criminal Iranians a priori not mattering how criminal they have been the conducts of the Americans.



If it really wants to liberate the world of the nuclear weapons first the Americans should give the example. After it plays 99,99% of their 5 thousand nuclear bombs in the garbage the White House it can demand that the other people make the same. Before this, the American foreign policy will be hypocritical and this whole inferior controversy on the Iranian threat will just suggest me a question:



Do the Brazilian journalists defend the North American foreign policy because they believe in the spread propaganda for USIA (http://dosfan.lib.uic.edu/usia/) or because they work or do they want to work for the official agency of American propaganda?
