      Drtad I (Tiridates), the brother of Arsacid liege of Parthia and first Arsacid to rule Armenia, visited Rome in 66 A.D. during the reign of Emperor Nero. Rome and Parthia struggled to dominate Armenia and had eventually reached a compromise. Armenia was to be ruled by Tiridates but he had to receive his crown from Nero. Tiridates was also a pagan priest and became a hero in Rome for his martial skills. His journey to Rome contributed immensely to Iranian legends. It may also lie behind the Christ’s legend of the Three Magi. According to some legends, the prototype of Magi Casper/Gadaspar was Armenian.

      Aug. 29 protest - NO WAR ON SYRIA
      Aug. 29 protest at the White House initiated by the ANSWER Coalition
      Today (Aug. 29), the British House of Commons voted to reject Prime Minister David Cameron's plan to join with the Obama administration in launching missile strikes against Syria. Cameron is the closest partner that President Obama has. This was an enormous setback for the war makers.
      Please make an urgently needed donation to help the anti-war movement as we are mobilizing dozens of protests in cities and towns throughout the United States.

      Yet, Obama's top aides told the New York Times immediately after the House of Commons vote that the president was preparing to attack Syria even if the British government did not join the operation.

      This is an outrage. The people of the United States and the people of the UK are dead set against another war of aggression in the Middle East.
      Such an attack would be nothing other than a new lawless and reckless act of aggression by the world’s greatest military superpower. The consequences of such an assault are unknowable in advance. In addition to further exacerbating the suffering of the Syrian people, the potential for a wider war is very real. Russia has announced it is moving warships to the eastern Mediterranean; Iran has stated that if Syria is attacked by the United States, Israel will be hit also.
      But until the missiles are fired and the bombs dropped, it is still possible to stop the war before it starts. It is critically important that all those who oppose a new war and who demonstrated today stay in the streets over this crucial weekend. What people do can make a difference!
