Former US President Warns Against Attack on IRAN _Decries Unjust Wars of USA!

Press TV.             Tuesday, April, 24, 2012

Former USA President, Jimmy Carter warned against a possible war with Iran and denounced the USA’s involvement in unjust wars.

Carter who served as US president from 1977 to 1981, made the remarks in a keynote address at a summit of Nobel Peace Prize laureates in Chicago on Monday, AFP reported.

War is only just when it is a “last resort” after “every other possible peaceful resolution” is exhausted, when all efforts are made to protect civilians, when the purpose of the conflict is to make the situation better, not worse, when society in general agrees it is just, and when the level of violence is “proportional to the injury received,” he said, adding, “That would obviously exclude our recent policy of preemptive war.”

Carter said that while he is “not against conflict when necessary,” the criteria for a just war are often not met.

He noted that the United States has been “almost constantly at war” over the past 60 years — in Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, El Salvador, Libya, Panama, Haiti, Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan and many other places, adding that most of those wars fail to meet the criteria for a just war and “some of them were completely unnecessary.”

“And now we are contemplating going to war again, perhaps in Iran,” said the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize winner.

The US and Israel have repeatedly threatened Iran with the “option” of a military strike, based on the allegation that Iran’s nuclear activities may have a covert military aspect.

They have also used this allegation as a pretext to sway the UN Security Council to impose four rounds of sanctions on Iran.

Iran has categorically refuted the allegations, saying that as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it has the right to acquire and develop nuclear technology meant for peaceful purposes.


About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
