Of course . The Americans or others will try to take advantage of the recent turmoil . But whose fault is this ? In Syria , there were reports of government troops planting small arms among the corpses of the protesters , to justify their killing . I think I saw this myself on BBC . Did the Syrian government fire the first shot ? Whoever fired the first shot is guilty . whoever drew first blood . The person who responds in defence , is not guilty . It does not matter , if he fired back with a sling shot made in Japan , or a harpoon made in Sweden or an M16 made in USA or an AK47 made in Soviet union . He has to defend himself , in any way he can .
So if we have to blame anyone , we have to blame the instigators and aggressors and those that reject peace and democracy . And are the Kurds , this time , doing that ? Or are they , like other Iranians shouting for an end to dictatorship and for freedom , on the street ? And are Iranians in all corners of Iran , not subject to attacks ? Who fired the first shot ?
The Kurds have always had their personal firearms , even under the Shah . They were allowed this . The problem , is one of lack of political development of democracy . A democratic system is capable of addressing the nationalities and minorities question , without bloodshed . I do not dislike the Kurds , because they wish for separate homeland , they have a right to voice this . But in a democratic system , any addition or subtraction to territory , is a matter for a national vote .
In a democratic national vote , also involving the Iraqi and Turkish nations , the Kurds do not carry enough votes for a separate homeland . But this time , they have not even been voicing a wish for separatism . Only a slogan common to all other Iranians . I do not dislike the Kurds , because some are communists , it is their right under a democratic system , to have free political affiliations . They could dance around a fire , and worship the moon God , It is their right .
I do not dislike the Kurds , because they want to speak their language in their region . But they will not understand others , if their neighbours speak Persian or Arabic or Turkish . Then they must speak those languages too . Do in Rome , as the Romans do ! In fact I do not dislike the Kurds in any way .The problem is a lack of a democratic central government . The Kurds in this case , only responded to the first shot fired by security services . The fault tests with them . Iran military should withdraw troops from all the streets of Iran . Unless there is a need to respond to armed gangs . They should leave peaceful protests alone .
