Heightening Anti-Iranian Tensions
Obama and Israel want regime change in Iran by any means.
by Stephen Lendman
For months, Iran faced baseless accusations. They include:
- the spurious US Saudi ambassador assassination plot;
- charges about developing nuclear weapons;
- being the "world's leading state sponsor of terror," according to AIPAC;
- targeting Israeli officials in India, Georgia, and Thailand; and
- planning Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak's assassination, according to The Israel Project citing Kuwait's Al Jarida newspaper.
All of the above don't pass the smell test. Charges are baseless on their face. Yet major media scoundrels headline them for days. In the process, they heighten tensions for belligerent intervention.
Moreover, they ignore past US/Israeli terrorist attacks blamed on Arabs, and both countries' notorious histories of targeted assassinations and other destabilization schemes.
Former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski believes Iran may be blamed for a false flag on US soil to justify war. Former Marine Corps Intelligence/CIA case officer Robert David Steele expressed the same view. So do others to give America and Israel the war they want, no matter the potential catastrophic consequences.
Since the 1980s, Washington planned regime change. Israel offers ready support. As a result, war on Iran's been ongoing by other means.
They include computer viruses and other cyber attacks, other sabotage, multiple rounds of sanctions, attempts to cripple its central bank and oil exports, targeted assassinations, deadly explosions, sophisticated satellite, drone, and other type spying, bogus accusations, imposing a virtual blockade to isolate Tehran, and ongoing saber rattling stopping just short of bombs away.
When Washington's planned regime change train leaves the station, it doesn't stop until mission accomplished by whatever means necessary. Against Syria and especially Iran, it literally risks WW III as Russia and China may intervene to protect their own vital interests.
