The greatest asset of the propagandists is your belief that you haven't been propagandized.
Hi my name's Maga McBootlick. I fight the establishment by cheerleading for the US President, I oppose war by supporting the same Middle East agendas as Dick Cheney, John Bolton and Bill Kristol, and I love the Iranian people so much I want to kill them with starvation sanctions.
I can't believe I've spent a week and a half arguing with Republicans who insist that assassinating a nation's top general is perfectly sane and normal and fine. No, idiots. No.
Trump supporters keep telling me how upset they are that I'm dedicating so much time and energy to criticizing his Iran warmongering. The mental irritation you experience when I criticize your president is called cognitive dissonance. It's what being wrong feels like.
Note to the US government: you don't get to murder civilians with starvation sanctions and then have anyone believe you when you tell them you stand with them. Not a thing.
When you target civilians with sanctions with the stated goal of making them so miserable and hungry that they rise up against their government, and then openly urge them to rise up against their government, you are trying to start a civil war. That is the thing you are doing. People should really think hard about exactly what that means.
The US Secretary of State has openly admitted that Iran is being sanctioned not so that its government will change its behavior, but so that the Iranian people will force their government out. This cannot happen without coordinated violence against Tehran, i.e., civil war.
We've known for years that the CIA has been ramping up covert operations within Iran. Concerns that the CIA is working to foment violence and disorder in Tehran are not idle speculation. It is most definitely happening. Only question is how and to what extent.
