Heading for War with Iran

Washington plans regime change in Iran and Syria.

by Stephen Lendman

Israel wants it. So does Obama, but not until after November elections. Policy now focuses on winning. Waging more wars can wait, except for Syria, despite strong public support for Assad's reform agenda promising real change.

On March 15, marking one year since Western-generated violence erupted, millions of Syrians in Damascus, Aleppo, and other cities nationwide publicly expressed regime support and anger at outside interference stoking months of violence. Political analyst Afif Dalleh called the day "a declaration of victory by all accounts." 

Impressive national unity was displayed. It's a bulwark against Western-generated aggression. One theme above others expressed Syria for Syrians, free from outside interference. People everywhere feel the same, including Iranians united against potential Israeli and Washington aggression.

Despite supporting pro-Western Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria regime change initiatives, NATO member Turkey backs Iran if attacked. Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said:

"In our area, we do not accept such an operation. We will also react negatively to such operation."

He added that attacking Iran's nuclear facilities would "wreak disaster in our region. Before all this happens, there should be serious negotiations."
