Planned Regime Change in Iran and Syria - by Stephen Lendman

Obama plans continued conflict, destabilization and violence for regime change.

Plans are longstanding. Timing alone isn't known. Signs suggest 2012. If sanctions, subversion, cyberwar, and targeted assassinations fail, expect hot conflict to follow.

On January 9, the Washington Post quoted an anonymous US intelligence official saying America's goal for Iran is "regime change." A next day article retracted the statement, saying:

"An earlier version of this article reported that a US intelligence official had described regime collapse as a goal of US and other sanctions against Iran. An updated version clarifies the official's remarks."

In other words, the Post retracted its correct assessment. Indeed, Washington's longstanding goal is regime change by whatever means necessary, including war.

Recent reports and events are worrisome. On January 13, the The Tribune Company headlined, "US troops quietly surge into Middle East," saying:

CENTCOM head General James Mattis "warned that he needed additional forces to deal with Iran and other potential threats...."

As a result, 15,000 combat troops are positioned in Kuwait. "The new units include two Army infantry brigades and a helicopter unit." In addition, two aircraft carrier battle groups remain in the region.
