President George W. Bush sent, this evening and in the final "State of Union Address" of his Presidency, clear messages to the Iranian People and their oppressors.
Slamming the Islamic regime, for its terrorist and abusive activities, he stated: "We're also standing against the forces of extremism embodied by the regime in Tehran. Iran's rulers oppress a good and talented people. And wherever freedom advances in the Middle East, it seems the Iranian regime is there to oppose it. Iran is funding and training militia groups in Iraq, supporting Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon, and backing Hamas' efforts to undermine peace in the Holy Land. Tehran is also developing ballistic missiles of increasing range, and continues to develop its capability to enrich uranium, which could be used to create a nuclear weapon."
Then and addressing, directly, the Iranians , he said: "Our message to the people of Iran is clear: We have no quarrel with you, we respect your traditions and your history, and we look forward to the day when you have your freedom."
Finally, he warned the oppressive Islamic regime, by adding: "Our message to the leaders of Iran is also clear: Verifiably suspend your nuclear enrichment, so negotiations can begin. And to rejoin the community of nations, come clean about your nuclear intentions and past actions, stop your oppression at home and cease your support for terror abroad. But above all, know this: America will confront those who threaten our troops, we will stand by our allies, and we will defend our vital interests in the Persian Gulf.”
It's to note that the US President used, in tonight's important address, the full and correct historical and UN recognized name of the famous water body which is the "Persian Gulf". This was another noble gesture, he made toward the Iranian People following the mistake that he made, during his last visit to the region, when he used the meaningless word "Gulf".
Not astonishingly, most known "mercantilist" European and Chinese news agencies omitted to mention the parts of Mr. Bush's statement where he addressed the Iranian People and mentioned their quest for freedom. These so-called news agencies, which follow the interest of their governments and some financial circles, focused only on the parts of the statement which were in relation to the turmoil created by the Islamic regime.\
Same silence was adopted by the CNN's commentators when they analysed the parts of the Presidential Speech in refernce to Iran. No word of Iranian People and their quest for freedom was mentionned.
