Imperial America targets Iran and other independent nations.
by Stephen Lendman
Washington and Israel wage dirty covert wars. Iran's been targeted for years. Imperial aims are prioritized. Rule of law principles don't matter. Israel wants sole regional dominance. America wants it globally. Lawless tactics continue.
They include cyber attacks, other sabotage, targeted assassinations, deadly explosions, sophisticated satellite, drone, and other spying, bogus accusations, a virtual blockade, hostile saber rattling, multiple rounds of sanctions, and attempts to cripple its central bank and oil industry.
In addition, relentless anti-Iranian propaganda substitutes malicious misinformation and bald-faced lies for accuracy and truth.
At issue is Iranian independence. The Islamic Republic threatens no one. Its nuclear program is peaceful. It seeks cooperative international relations. It wants its sovereign rights respected.
Regime change is planned. Belligerence is America's option of choice. It wants pro-Western governments replacing independent ones. Peace and stability are sabotaged. Pretexts are created. One war follows another. After Syria comes Iran.
Institute for Policy Studies senior scholar Andrew Levine expects war. Obama wants it avoided until post-election. He told Russia Today (rt.com) its "rationale".remains intact."
He matches Republican hawkishness. He's more hawkish on Afghanistan than Romney. Overall differences between them are like "Coke and Pepsi." Both want regime change in Syria and Iran. They'll do what it takes against both governments. Congress is supportive. Expect the worst. It's coming.
Western proxies wage war on Syria. Media scoundrels invert truth. They consider cold-blooded killers freedom fighters. They're armed, trained, funded, and directed to commit murder and other atrocities. Assad gets blamed for their crimes.
Journalist Robert Fisk visited Daraya. Days earlier, terrorists massacred dozens of civilians. Some say hundreds. Mass burials were held.
Residents he spoke to contradicted official reports. They blamed Anti-Assad terrorists. A woman named Leena saw bodies on streets before Syrian forces arrived. Government loyalists were targeted.
Home were invaded. People were kidnapped and slaughtered. Assad was wrongfully blamed. Expect a full investigation to reveal more.
Washington may replicate Syrian violence in Iran. Baseless charges continue. On August 30, Haaretz headlined the latest. Unnamed US, Israeli and UN officials were cited. Uncorroborated charges were made. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was named.
