Regime Change - What are the common threads?

Regime changes have happened using various models.

Model 1: Protests Spread lies (e.g., WMD, chemical weapons) dropping bombs on innocent people (Case of Iraq and Syria)

Model 2: Sanctions (mostly illegal) Protests Clamp-downs and arrests Foreign interference (protesters with black masks attacking public properties violently) Media disinformation campaign Coup attempt Repeat if unsuccessful (many cases in West Asia and South and Central America)

The reason behind most regime changes have been countries which have refused UK/USA/France terms of their natural resources and banking systems. These Western countries start with sanctions which most violate international agreements and norms. After sanctions, military threats have been the norm. (Cases of Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Bolivia, and so on.)

When will this end? In my view, when illegal sanctions are lifted. Sanctions have brought nothing but suffering for ill, elderly, and children. The elites are not suffering. Illegal sanctions have killed children and elderly.

Iran. The West is setting the stage for another regime change.

One of the reasons USA wants regime change is that under JCPOA, other P5 + 1 countries were getting all the deals and USA and its companies were left out.

Chile. All these protests broke out because of sudden and strange Metro fare hike. People started protesting a lot after that, then the police response escalated things and suddenly there were black masked protesters and buses set on fire, and eventually there was a city-wide curfew in Santiago where the police were permitted to attack ordinary people, especially after curfew.

What is going on? Gasoline price hikes in Iran. Random gasoline price hikes for transport in certain countries? What is the common thread?

To understand different models, the role of oil and gas companies should not be ignored.

In Peru, a problem has risen that President Vizcarra postponed it to after the New Year (2020). In Peru, they were planning on building a subway system in Lima which would displace buses and many taxi drivers. Expect violent demonstration to start in January February 2020 time frame.

This all happening almost two years after Luxembourg started a program to make all its public transport completely free for its people. Why? Could this have something to do with oil and gas being unstable right now and people in the know panicking about it?

What do the people know about this? Are "deep State" Western countries taking advantage of a globally financially precarious situation bubbling under the surface to manipulate uprisings and regime changes around the world?

Western countries are said to be democracy. Regardless of what other countries think of their voting system(s), Western societies vote for their leaders so they need to own the problems their governments have brought upon to the world.

Plundering countries for oil and natural resources have always been the goal of political systems in UK/USA/France and even in Russia and China (a new comer). This serves the power elite. This will never end till there is a raising of the consciousness of world citizens...until we all see each other as brothers and sisters and to recognize and own that the basic underlying spirit of humans is to care, live and love. Then, we can break free of the tyrants' control and propaganda machine. Then we all might be free.

Iran, pronounced Eeran NOT Eye-ran...".> Hint: Italy: Eetaly not Eye-taly. Iran has been in the region properly termed 'West Asia' -- not the 'Middle East' for thousand of years. (more...)
