Back in 2012, U.S. lawmakers began to work to prevent American wireless carriers from buying equipment from Huawei and ZTE, another Chinese company. The U.S. government was concerned about Huawei’s ties to the Chinese government and worried that equipment from both companies could eventually be a national security threat if it was deployed across the United States.

Those ties to the Chinese military begin with the CEO. Huawei’s founder, billionaire Ren Zhengfei, was an engineer in China’s People’s Liberation Army before he left the service in 1983 and started Huawei four years later. Huawei has always denied its equipment is any more vulnerable to spying than that provided by other companies.

Most recently, AT&T abandoned its plans to launch a Huawei flagship smartphone in the U.S. in January. The Information news site reported at the time that AT&T canceled the launch after the House and Senate Intelligence committees raised concerns over the partnership.

The U.S. isn’t the only country worried about Huawei’s potential ability to use its hardware for spying. Australia has banned its wireless carriers from using Huawei equipment for new 5G networks. The U.K.’s spy chief also raised concerns about Huawei earlier this week.

Finally, earlier this year the FBI, CIA and NSA warned U.S. consumers to avoid buying phones built by Huawei and its sub-brand “Honor” that were sold through retailers such as Best Buy and Amazon.

We’re deeply concerned about the risks of allowing any company or entity that is beholden to foreign governments that don’t share our values to gain positions of power inside our telecommunications networks,” FBI Director Christopher Wray said in February.

“That provides the capacity to exert pressure or control over our telecommunications infrastructure,” Wray said. “It provides the capacity to maliciously modify or steal information. And it provides the capacity to conduct undetected espionage.

Despite all the efforts, the exiled Iranian political-militant organization Mojahedin-e Khalqm’s (MEK) remains unpopular among ordinary Iranians, Iranian dissidents, and opposition figures in the United States.

hen the U.S. Department of State held a meeting for regime change in Iran with prominent Iranian opposition figures on July 22, the exiled Iranian political-militant organization Mojahedin-e Khalqm’s (MEK) was not invited. This can be attributed to MEK’s unpopularity, not just among ordinary Iranians but rather among Iranian dissidents and opposition figures in the United States.

While MEK seems to be popular among some U.S. politicians after the group was delisted from terrorist lists, MEK remains unpopular among Iranians and in particular with the Kurds.

The assassination of ordinary citizens, playing a key role in the 1979 Islamic Revolution, taking part in U.S. embassy hostage crisis, and providing security services for Iraq’s dictator Saddam Hussein all contributed to the group being Iran’s most hated political organization.

After ayatollahs forced MEK to stop its armed activity and boycotted its leaders from taking part in the 1981 presidential election, the group started carrying out a series of terrorist attacks. These activities finally forced the group into exile and made them the best military asset of Saddam Hussein during the second half of the Iran-Iraq war.

Providing Security Services for Saddam Hussein

During the first half of Iran-Iraq war, MEK established intelligence cooperation with the Iraqi army. MEK’s cooperation with Iraq became more intense in 1986 after French Prime Minister Jacques Chirac struck a deal with Tehran over the release of French hostages in exchange for the ceasing of French’s technical support for Iraq’s nuclear program. Part of the agreement was forcing MEK to leave France, where it has had its headquarters since 1981. Saddam Hussein invited MEK to relocate their headquarters to Iraq, where MEK formed the 7,000-member National Liberation Army (NLA), which acted as a part of the Iraqi army.

Saddam agreed to provide shelter for thousands of MEK members. MEK’s leaders, including Massoud Rajavi, had taken part in the 1973 Arab Israeli war during which they gained experience of fighting in classic wars. This experience drew the attention of Saddam Hussein who then utilized MEK in operations against Iran.

Joint Operations with Iraqi Army

Soon MEK took part in joint operations with the Iraqi army against Iran, starting with “Operation Aftab” (Sunshine) near Shoush in southeast Iran on 28 March 1988. According to MEK, the organization killed 3,500 Iranian soldiers and captured a further 417, while MEK only lost 123 of its people. The operation was successful in terms of occupation of parts of Iranian territory but had a negative effect on MEK’s reputation. All Iranian opposition groups cut their ties with the group.

“Operation Chelcheragh” was the second major operation in which Iraqis used MEK’s forces against Iran. The operation was launched on June 18, 1988, with the key goal to occupy the Iranian border city Mehran and its oil fields by using Persian language speaking forces to penetrate into Iranian territory and control Kurdish villages in the region. The Iraqi army used 3,000 of MEK’s members during the operation.

Militants of three MEK battalions disguised themselves as Iranian army soldiers, which helped them to break Iran’s defensive line by killing and capturing dozens of their soldiers. Finally, MEK managed to successfully attack Mehran and occupy it in the morning of the next day.

On 20 July 1988, Iran and Iraq both accepted the UN Security Council resolution 598, calling for an immediate ceasefire between the two countries, the repatriation of war prisoners, and the withdrawal of troops. This quickly caused a halt to Iranian military operations with the idea that Iraq would also reduce its forces from the frontlines. However, just days before the official ceasefire, Saddam planned to launch an offensive to occupy as much as possible of Iran’s territory to have the upper hand during any diplomatic negotiations after the truce.

Because using Iraqi army troops to occupy Iran’s territory would breach the resolution, Iraq used militants of MEK for “Operation Forooghe Javidan” (Eternal Light), launched on July 25, 1988. MEK took part with almost 5,000 militants, who were heavily armed by the Iraqi army.

During Operation Eternal Light, not a single Iraqi soldier accompanied MEK on the ground. Instead, Iraqi air forces provided significant help on the evening the operation was launched.

To foil any possible resistance of local Kurdish Peshmerga forces, Iraqi air forces dropped chemical bombs on four Kurdish villages in the Gilan-e Gharb county, killing hundreds of civilians and forcing the local Kurdish Peshmerga to leave the region precisely five days before the launch of Operation Eternal Light.

Five days later, the Iraqi army launched a deceptive offensive from the Khuzestan frontlines to draw the attention of Iranian armed forces away from the western fronts. Although these helped MEK to successfully occupy Eslamabad-e Gharb in western Iran on the first day of the operation, they were slowed down by the Kurdish Peshmerga a day later. Kurdish forces managed to entrap MEK armored column behind Chahar-Zabar strait, miles before they reached Kermanshah. Hours later, Iranian armed forces launched the counter-offensive “Operation Mersad” on 26 July 1988.

As a result of this operation, almost 2,000 of MEK’s militants were killed, the Eslamabad-e Gharb was recaptured by Iran, and the remaining MEK militants were pushed back into Iraq.

In the course of “Operation Iraqi Freedom” in 2003, air forces of the U.S. and the U.K. bombed military camps of MEK and forced the group to surrender and hand over their arms.

After Operation Iraqi Freedom, MEK members and its leaders were on the edge of prosecution due to the crimes against humanity. Thanks to the generous financial support of Saudi Arabia, the group managed to pay for advocacy of the U.S., U.K., Canada, and other countries to be taken off terrorist lists.

MEK spends millions to hold annual rallies in Paris during which they pay Western politicians to give speeches and rent crowds of refugees and foreign students to play the role of Iranians. MEK also pays western journalists and news agencies to publish articles in support of the group to raise its popularity in the west. Despite these efforts, the Trump administration refuses to take MEK seriously and consider them a popular opposition group.

How the merchants of death manage to supply the purveyors of death

Robert Fisk: I bet they’re not. For I don’t think either Nato or the EU has the slightest interest in chasing the provenance of weapons in the hands of Islamist fighters in Syria or anywhere else in the Middle East – certainly not in the case of Damascus, where the west has just given up its attempt to unseat Assad. Indeed, in a political landscape where “regime change” has become a moral, ethical objective, there can be no moral, ethical investigation of just how the merchants of death (the makers) manage to supply the purveyors of death (the killers) with … Continue reading

Women in Islam

The Qor’an urged respect for women within marriage and respect for their modesty and privacy, though it made no specific rules for women’s dress or veiling, and some have suggested that the veil originated as an elite practice, copied from the Christian Byzantine court—comparable perhaps with the custom among aristocratic Englishwomen in Victorian times. The Qor’an gave women the right to own property in their own name. It also discouraged the pre-Islamic practice of killing unwanted girl infant. (p. 71) The conquest (of Iran) was not, for the most part, followed by mass murder, forced conversion, or what today we … Continue reading

Why Are We Attacking the Syrians Who Are Fighting ISIS?

  Written by Ron Paul Monday June 12, 2017 Just when you thought our Syria policy could not get any worse, last week it did. The US military twice attacked Syrian government forces from a military base it illegally occupies inside Syria. According to the Pentagon, the attacks on Syrian government-backed forces were “defensive” because the Syrian fighters were approaching a US self-declared “de-confliction” zone inside Syria. The Syrian forces were pursuing ISIS in the area, but the US attacked anyway. The US is training yet another rebel group fighting from that base, located near the border of Iraq at … Continue reading

Pope Francis: The world is at war, a piecemeal war, for natural resources and domination of peoples.

“The word that is being repeated often is insecurity, but the real word is war,” “Let’s recognize it. The world is in a state of war in bits and pieces,”

“The world is at war, a piecemeal war. There was the 1914 war with its methods, then the 1939-45 one and now this one.”

“It is not very organic (structured) but it is organized, it is war.  This saintly priest, killed right at the moment when he was offering prayers for peace.  He is one (victim), but how many Christians, how many innocent people, how many children… Let’s think about Nigeria, for example.  We say, well, that is Africa!  It’s war.  We’re not frightened to tell the truth, the world is at war because it has lost (sight) of peace.”

“to clarify”
“Not a war of religion.
There is a war of interests.
There is a war for money.
There is a war for natural resources.
There is a war for domination of peoples.
This is the war,”
“All religions want peace. Others want war. Do you understand?”



Pope Francis on industry of death

“This is serious. Some powerful people make their living with the production of arms and sell them to one country for them to use against another country … It’s the industry of death, the greed that harms us all, the desire to have more money.”

“The economic system orbits around money and not men, women. …

“So war is waged in order to defend money.

This is why some people don’t want peace: They make more money from war, although wars make money but lose lives, health, education.”

“A war can be justified, so to speak, with many, many reasons, but when all the world is as it is today, at war — piecemeal though that war may be — a little here, a little there and everywhere, there is no justification. And God weeps. Jesus weeps.”


Pope Francis: it is our duty to stop the arms trade

“Being at the service of dialogue and peace also means being truly determined to minimize and, in the long term, to end the many armed conflicts throughout our world. Here we have to ask ourselves: Why are deadly weapons being sold to those who plan to inflict untold suffering on individuals and society? Sadly, the answer, as we all know, is simply for money: money that is drenched in blood, often innocent blood. In the face of this shameful and culpable silence, it is our duty to confront the problem and to stop the arms trade. Thursday, 24 September 2015 … Continue reading

Eight Exceptional(ly Dumb) American Achievements of the Twenty-First Century

By Tom Engelhardt 1. What other country could have invaded Iraq, hardly knowing the difference between a Sunni and a Shiite, and still managed to successfully set off a brutal sectarian civil war and ethnic cleansing campaigns between the two sects that would subsequently go regional, whose casualty counts have tipped into the hundreds of thousands, and which is now bouncing back on Iraq?  What other great power would have launched its invasion with plans to garrison that country for decades and with the larger goal of subduing neighboring Iran (“Everyone wants to go to Baghdad; real men want to … Continue reading

Greenspan’s Ideological Mistake

Greenspan’s Ideological Mistake Alan Greenspan: I made a mistake in assuming the the self interest of organizations, specifically banks and others, were such that they were best capable of protecting their own shareholders and their equity in the firms, and it’s been my experience, having worked both as a regulator for eighteen years and similar quantities in the private sector, especially ten years at a major international bank, that the loan officers at these institutions knew far more about the risks involved in the people to whom they lent money that I saw even our best regulators at the Fed … Continue reading

In an organization one can make his strength effective and his weakness irrelevant.

To achieve results, one has to use all the available strengths—the strengths of associates, the strengths of the superior, and one’s own strengths. These strengths are the true opportunities. To make strength productive is the unique purpose of organization. It cannot, of course, overcome the weaknesses with which each of us is abundantly endowed. But it can make them irrelevant. Its task is to use the strength of each man as a building block for joint performance. (p.74) Strong people always have strong weaknesses too. Where there are peaks, there are valleys. (p.75) In an organization one can make his … Continue reading

Modern psychology has a word that is probably used more than any other word in modern psychology. It is the word “maladjusted.” This word is the ringing cry to modern child psychology. Certainly, we all want to avoid the maladjusted life. In order to have real adjustment within our personalities, we all want the well‐adjusted life in order to avoid neurosis, schizophrenic personalities. But I say to you, my friends, as I move to my conclusion, there are certain things in our nation and in the world which I am proud to be maladjusted and which I hope all men of good‐will … Continue reading

While India has been demanding a review of the food subsidy limit for several years, the developed countries have refused to play ball. In fact, in the run-up to the Bali ministerial last December, the rich countries had even refused to acknowledge the food security proposal submitted by G-33, which includes countries such as Indonesia, Brazil and China. It was only after a link with trade facilitation was established that food security even came on the agenda for the ministerial. … Continue reading

The truth value of some statements are independent to our beliefs

Whether one believes the God exists or not., some statements are consequentially true. Think about: “Thou shalt not steal” “Thou shalt not kill”   They actually lead to curse. Not necessarily to supernatural curse. They lead to very natural curse. They lead to death.   So there is something real in Bach’s BWV 54   Stand firm against sin,otherwise its poison seizes hold of you.Do not let Satan blind youfor to desecrate the honour of Godmeets with a curse, which leads to death.

Thou shalt not follow the crowd in doing wrong

Thou shalt not follow the crowd in doing wrong, neither shalt thou testify along with the perjuring crowd.   Amir’s interpretation of Exodus 23:2   Conformity is the act of matching attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors to group norms. Norms are implicit, unsaid rules, shared by a group of individuals, that guide their interactions with others. This tendency to conform occurs in small groups and/or society as a whole, and may result from subtle unconscious influences, or direct and overt social pressure. … Continue reading

The only thing worse than the tyranny of majority is the tyranny of minority over majority.

    ‘Until secrecy, prejudice, bias, misrepresentation, and propaganda as well as sheer ignorance are replaced by inquiry and publicity,’ , ‘we have no way of telling how apt for judgement of social policies the existing intelligence of the masses may be’     (Dewey 1927,   p. 209). “The unsolved problem of democracy is the construction of an education which will develop that kind of individuality which is intelligently alive to the common life and sensitively loyal to its common maintenance.”  (Dewey, 1899-1924,   V.11).

How Nazis thought about Anti Bolshevism and Anti Semitism where mixed?   Historians such as Richard Overy have argued that the importance of the memo, which was written personally by Hitler, can be gauged by the fact that Hitler, who had something of a phobia about writing, hardly ever wrote anything down, which indicates that Hitler had something especially important to say.[47] The “Four-Year Plan Memorandum” predicated an imminent all-out, apocalyptic struggle between “Judeo-Bolshevism” and German National Socialism, which necessitated a total effort at rearmament regardless of the economic costs.[48] In the memo, Hitler wrote: Since the outbreak of the French Revolution, the world has been moving with ever increasing … Continue reading

“The star possesses no anger; the dawn bears no malice. Light is satisfied in being light. Light is everything; the human race has no other love.” “The French revolution is for all the world. It is a battle perpetually waged for Right, and perpetually gained for Truth. Right is the innermost part of man; Truth is the innermost part of God.

Unnecessary loss

People’s real quality of life will not change for better until more powerful countries change for better. It is not because powerful countries are worse than others. It is because with power comes ability and responsibility. As we continue unfair, irrational, predatory and abusive behavior of past empires (inside and outside their territories), we not only, unnecessarily, lose our freedoms, privacy, morality, and democracy; but also, shatter the hopes of people in less advanced countries for such ideals as well.  It results bitterness in lives of billions who,  with current level of our science and technology, could have sweet lives … Continue reading

Retrieved from   MOST fundamentally, groups rise and fall over time. The fortunes of WASP elites have been declining for decades. In 1960, second-generation Greek-Americans reportedly had the second-highest income of any census-tracked group. Group success in America often tends to dissipate after two generations.

Everything is essentially mechanical.  Even people are machines, ‘lumbering robots’, in Richard Dawkins’s vivid phrase, with brains that are like genetically programmed computers.

Let us promise each other that we will never support a coup or use of force against a democratically elected government

Majority rule is the best when it cares about minorities. Let us promise each other that when we have majority, we rule with care about minorities. Refusing to accept the rule of majority, use of force by minority, coup against democratically elected government leading to minority rule is classical tyranny, it is the worst that can happen. Democratic majority rule that doesn’t care about minorities is not stable. It is a recipe for disaster. It may lead to revolt of minority and an unstable lose-lose situation. However, history has shown that military juntas kill about 1000 to 10000 times more … Continue reading

How can News create meaning?

“News signifies something which has just happened, and which is new, just because it deviates from the old and regular.  But its meaning depends upon relation to what it imports, to what its social consequences are.  This import cannot be determined unless the new is placed in relationship to the old…without this coordination and consecutiveness, events are not events, but mere occurrences” (John Dewey, The Public and Its Problems, 153). … Continue reading

On opinion

Nothing appears more surprising to those, who consider human affairs with a philosophical eye, than the easiness with which the many are governed by the few; and the implicit submission, with which men resign their own sentiments and passions to those of their rulers. When we enquire by what means this wonder is effected, we shall find, that, as Force is always on the side of the governed, the governors have nothing to support them but opinion. It is therefore, on opinion only that government is founded; and this maxim extends to the most despotic and most military governments, as … Continue reading

An end to the mummified self

Routine is habitual practice, petrified vision, or the mummified self, resigned to a single and definitive version of its being. We spend our time in a daze of diminished existence, neither awake nor asleep. We resign ourselves to compromise and routine, seeing the world through the categories of the established culture or the methods of the established disciplines and reconciled to the mutilation of our experience that we long ago accepted when we entered on a particular course of life;  and then to the mummy of diminished experience that formed around, as we grew older, because we allowed ourselves to … Continue reading

Definition of Ideal

Definition of Ideal What makes the difference between “ideal” and an ordinary object of desire is that the former is impersonal; it is something having (at least ostensibly) no special reference to the ego of the man who feels the desire, and therefore capable, theoretically, of being desired by everybody. Thus we might define an “ideal” as something desired, not egocentric, and such that the person desiring it wishes that every one else also desired it. I may wish that everybody had enough to eat, that everybody felt kindly towards everybody, and so on, and if I wish anything of this kind I shall also … Continue reading

The future of democracy is allied with the spread of scientific attitude. -John Dewey

The future of democracy is allied with the spread of the scientific attitude. it is the sole guarantee against wholesale misleading by propaganda, More important still, it is the only assurance of the possibility of a public opinion intelligent enough to meet present social problems. It is individual persons who need to have this attitude substituted for pride and prejudice, for class and personal interest, for beliefs made dear by custom and early emotional associations. Dewey, J. (1939). Freedom and culture. G. P. Putnam’s Sons.   … Continue reading

The art of creating consent among the governed

The significant revolution of modern times is not industrial or economic or political, but the revolution taking place in the art of creating consent among the governed . . . Within the life of the new generation now in control of affairs, persuasion has become a self-conscious art and a regular organ of popular government. None of us begins to understand the consequences, but it is no daring prophecy to say that the knowledge of how to create consent will alter every political premise. (Walter Lippmann, Public Opinion) … Continue reading

According to reporter Holger Stark of the German news organization Der Spiegel, Domscheit-Berg told Stark some time on August 20 that the cache was gone forever. On August 19, DDB confirmed to another German news organization, Heise, that he would be destroying at least “3000 unpublished private whistleblower communications.” DDB said before taking the risk for the sources that submitted material to WikiLeaks he wanted to be on … Continue reading

“the It”, “the I”, and the “I above” and consciousness

The It The ID is the part of the mind containing the drives present at birth; it is the source of our bodily needs, wants, desires, and impulses, particularly our sexual and aggressive drives. The id operates according to the pleasure principle, the psychic force that motivates the tendency to seek immediate gratification of any impulse. If the mind was solely guided by the id, individuals would find it difficult to wait patiently at a restaurant, while feeling hungry, and would most likely grab food off of neighbouring tables. According to Freud the id is unconscious by definition.

The Less We Know, the Surer We Are.

People tend to hold more extreme positions on complex policies when they don’t know very much about them, according to a research article in the academic journal Psychological Science. Research subjects stated their positions on six political policies on a scale from strongly against to strongly in favor, and then rated their understanding of the policies. After that they were asked to provide a detailed explanation of two of the policies. “Attempting to explain policies made people feel uncertain about them, which in turn made them express more moderate views,” In contrast, people didn’t seem to change their minds much … Continue reading

Science and Pseudoscience By: Lakatos

Imre Lakatos; November 9, 1922 – February 2, 1974) was a Hungarian philosopher of mathematics and science, known for his thesis of the fallibility of mathematics and its ‘methodology of proofs and refutations’ in its pre-axiomatic stages of development, and also for introducing the concept of the ‘research programme’ in his methodology of scientific research programmes. The transcript of his talk is below. To listen to Lakatos at “London School of Economics and Political Science” click here : Science and Pseudoscience Man’s respect for knowledge is one of his most peculiar characteristics.
