Chaos, Iran and terror

One thousand years ago, Ferdowsi, the Iranian poet said: “On the ant bearing the grain bring not strife, he is alive and joyous is sweet life”.
It has been the core of the Iranian culture. Of course Iran is not just the political territory which is now known as the country of “Iran”. Iran has been an old continent whose history is rooted in thousands of years ago. Its geographic position is from the east of the Mediterranean Sea, to the west of china. Nowadays much of this territory is called “Middle East”. Aside from the fact that this expression is biased and not scientific, we should note that the present situation does not represent the main characteristics of this land.
Iran has been the intersection point of “The west” and “The east”. So, Iran is neither eastern nor western. Neither the rational individualistic characteristics of The West, nor the irrational theosophical tendencies of The East, describe it correctly. Both of them represent themselves in it. I think this is the most important advantage of the Iranian culture. But at the same time this property made the society vulnerable. Iran between Western, Eastern and Arabian powers, had the unique position as the bridge of civilizations. Chaos appeared in Iran as a result of invasion of three major powers: Greeks, Arabs and Mongols. I have previously discussed about chaos in Iran.
In the last decades there have been a lot of conflicts and wars in the Iranian lands. In “Afghanistan” (as you know, it was a part of Iran before its separation with the cooperation of a freemason called Mirza Aghakhan Nouri and the British government) the presence of the above mentioned three major forces is obvious: the eastern communism with the direct role of Russia, the Arabic-Islamic fundamentalism and finally the American invasion. Many western citizens may accuse the Iranian culture for the recent terrorism in “Afghanistan”, but we should make it clear that these terrors have appeared as a result of the chaotic situation imposed by Russians, Americans and Arabs. No one can ignore the role of the US government in generating Islamic fundamentalism in the Iranian lands, especially in “Afghanistan”.
One of the American strategists has proposed the US government to help develop chaos in Iran. He thinks that the only way to subordinate the Iranian government is to destroy the foundations of order in the society. This fellow thinks using chaos theory is so easy. It seems that he doesn’t know that the first rule of the chaos theory is that no one can control anything. We must remind him what the external forces have done in the recent centuries. They have done nothing but developing chaos. It is true that in chaos theory, exerting external force always leads to chaos. But when chaos appeared, no one can control it. Thus, we should keep in mind the role of the external forces in emerging terrorism.
The Iranian culture has never admitted terrorism. Saadi, the Iranian poet, expresses it in this way:

The ease of two worlds is the explanation of these two words: With friends, kindness; with enemies, courtesy.
In 2007, Britsh MPs visiting the Pentagon were shocked to be told by one of President Bush's senior women officials: “I hate all Iranians”. She is absolutely unfamiliar with the Iranian culture and literature. She doesn’t know anything about history as well. If she does, first of all she would hate herself because of the role of her government in destroying the Iranian culture. They are very active in Afghanistan to destroy the Iranian identity of this land. Just look at what is happening at there: a destructive war between Americans and Arabic-Islamic fundamentalists whose roots are in Pakistan. The Iranian culture is exactly against terror. Chaos will not benefit anyone, but terrorists.
