Iranian Elections - Roadmap To Continued Apathy
The recent first round of the Iranian elections somewhat resembled the rise to power of the promising Mohammed Khatami first time round in 1999. But despite the break from apathy seen over recent elections, the liveliness does not bode anywhere near the same promise that Khatami managed to swirl up six years ago.

The Iraq Study Group A Hazy Patch of Nation Building - America & Iraq: Seduced by Fear, A New Book by Author Dr. Amaal V.E. Tokars


Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWeb) January 8, 2007 -- Grapevine Publishing is proud to announce Dr. Amaal V.E. Tokars book, America & Iraq: Seduced by Fear available January 8, 2007. In Seduced by Fear, Tokars brilliantly coins 2 necessary freedom terms: 1. Textual Imagery: information and communication filtered to citizens second by second. 2. Organic Citizenry: citizens who access not only the facts, but responsibly analyze those facts.

For example, America & Iraq: Seduced by Fear has legs for the current Iraq Study Group Report.
Iraq Study Group: Assess U.S. responsibility as the occupier. The role that the U.S. government has had in the plight of the Iraqi people is crucial to understanding the appropriate U.S. role now. Textual Imagery: It is generally agreed that all people should take responsibility for themselves. Organic Citizenry: Gives "take responsibility" meaning based on the real needs of Iraq and U.S.

Iraq Study Group: Iraq is a nation that must be unified not only in reconciliation, but in reconstruction of infrastructure and civil society. Organic Citizenry: "Oil revenues should accrue to the central government and be shared on the basis of population."

Iraq Study Group: Iraq would be unwise to divide the nation into three but if this were to happen on its own, the U.S. should manage the situation to reduce instability. Organic Citizenry: Is this a U.S. plan for nation building in the Middle East? U.S. citizens must know its nation's purposes.

Iraq Study Group: Other Middle East nations need to be worked with to bring peace to the region. Textual Imagery: One nation in particular will "never" be abandoned by any American government. Organic Citizenry: How do personal promises such as this enter a report as a statement of proposed policy without raising an ethical eyebrow?

In her book, America & Iraq: Seduced by Fear, Tokars guides readers to understand that for U.S. citizens to achieve Organic Citizenry, each must have access to not only the facts, but a responsible analysis of those facts to participate more fully in international policy decisions. She takes readers on a journey before and after 9-11, to demonstrate that the average citizen should have been prepared for war if each had been examining the Textual Imagery being proffered in the news. Without true understanding and knowledge of other cultures and current events, we remain static and forego any possibility of the freedoms for which our forefathers fought so intensely. Dr. Tokars challenges her readers to be Organic Citizens, to commit themselves to decipher and challenge all Textual Imagery -- including The Iraq Study Group Report.
