An American peace activist said the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979 put an end to Washington’s longtime interference in Iran.
“That brought Iran to the attention of America, if not the rest of the world as well. I am sure most Americans were not aware that the U S has been interfering in Iranian internal affairs for decades. I think that was one of the main reasons for the revolution,” Michael Marceau, vice president of the Veterans for Peace.
He added, “The United States animosity is not limited to Iran. We have invaded and occupied dozens of other countries throughout our short history.”
Veterans For Peace is a US-based global organization of Military Veterans and allies whose collective efforts are to build a culture of peace, according to the official website of the center. It informs “the public of the true causes of war and the enormous costs” of US wars, with an obligation to heal the wounds of wars.
