Anti-Iranian Hysteria

Setting Iran up for war.

by Stephen Lendman

Western media, hard right commentators, and pro-Israeli groups feature regular anti-Iranian denigration, slander, misinformation and lies.

Respecting its sovereignty is verboten. Regime change is prioritized. All means are OK, including war, mass killing and destruction. Warmongers relish it. Rhetoric tries justifying it.

Responsibility to protect (R2P) and humanitarian intervention are code terms. They're cover for imperial ravaging. When is war not war? It's when killing, terrorizing, and traumatizing victims is legitimized. It's when lies substitute for truth. It's when threats don't exist so they're created. It's when fake objectives conceal real ones.

America and Israel are warrior states. They'd rather fight than switch policies to peaceful ones. They'd rather eliminate rivals than cooperate diplomatically, politically and economically.

Iran's alleged nuclear threat is red herring cover for regime change by war if other methods fail.
