This is rediciluos. If politics of Washington said Iran was a good country Ali Amirnazmi now would have been a very wealthy free man. But politics of US says Saudi the barbarian, the biggest vilator of the human rights, the country that is bombing American soldiers in Iraq is a good guy but Iran is a bad guy. Politics of Washington says Pakistan who is hiding Ben Ladin can have a nuclear weapon but Iran a country who has never attacked any other country can not have a nuclear weapon. Ali Amirnazmi a briliant man who is a proud Iranian wants to live in his country where he is born and raised in and speaks the language comfortably next to his extended family and his mother and he is accused of wanting to have business in his own country. A man of his talent, a chemical Engineering major, what can they do in Iran to make money but to deal with Chemical companies. Should he open a travel agency and export all Mullahs to Amercia so that they would be put in trial so this man can live in his own country and do business with his own country? What happens if Iran government changes and US bodies up with Iran tomorrow and Iran is no longer in the bad list does America give back the life that is taking away from this man?
He didn't steal a mass destruction formula from US. He didn't kill any American or any other person. He didnt spy against America. He went to his country and attemtped to build a busienss from the only field of work that he knew how to. He was making money out of his legitimate business that is the same business he is conducting with large American corporations. The same business the same nature except with a government and people who America doesn't like which happen to be his own country men!!
Why doesn't America go after the Dutch companies, the Russian companies, all the German companies who are helping Iran to build a nuclear power plant. And why doesn't America take his assets in US, kick him out of US and say go home and we no longer accept you to do business in this country. But to put him in jail because he was doing business in Iran is redicilous. What if he sold carpets?
What does a Chemical Engineering company do in US? Don't they help companies with their Chemical science and materials?
We live in US. Lets say someone is working for IBM. Lets say IBM is sold in Iran and lets say Iran uses that company to make nuclear plants. Does than mena the man i US has to go to Jail because he is working in IBM?
We in US every day are becoming more violent towards other people's decisions in their lives. We take young children away from their mother by force because we don't like the way they practice their religion. We are getting carried away with our laws and making decisions for people how to live their lives and we call it a free country.
I don't think we should focus on Ali Amirnazmi's legal entaglements . I think we should focus on what the heck is going on in Washington and why they are set in destruction of Iran no matter what they are doing to Iranian citizen and origins all over the world. A peace loving, modern, educated, fun loving people who are being supressed by the religious government and crushed by the politics of US.
Leave Iran and Iranians alone. Go after the true terrorist and find them in Arab countries such as Saudi.
Just think why there is a war in Iraq and you would understand what is the ture politics behind it. There is a war between Sunnis and shiees in Iraq. American went to bring democracy and ffree election. Free election means a Shie Muslim majority to win the position and presidency of the government. Sunnis backed by Ben Ladin and Saudi and the rest of the Arab world do not want a Shiee government in between them. So they kill Shiees and with it the American soldiers.
