Regime Change - What are the common threads?

Author 8028
Message Mohammad Ala

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. It is heart-warming to see more and more (more...)

Your points are exactly what Tulsi Gabbard is stressing, hence she is being demonized and/or silenced. Her agenda is the only one that has a chance of changing things IMHO

Also, I believe China is attempting to bring the Globe together in a peaceful relationship.I am waiting for the barrage of "Tulsi is an agent of China" to start

Human populations of Africans and original peoples of "America" were also plundered. At the same time proles and their children continued to be plundered through the late 19th century. Common thread? Divine Might.

As long as the pompous A$$e$ comprising the United Nations do not stand strong in achieving their own Agenda 2030 rogue nations such as the United States will continue attacking innocent civilians in sovereign nations through sanctions, terrorism, even military bombs this pillaging and killing will continue.

Presently, the United Nations is nothing more than an accomplice in these for-profit activities against defenseless sovereign nations whose only means of providing for their citizens is through their natural resources.

In the case of Iran you forgot one more model: Model 3: Money Grubbing Mafioso Tyrants posing as Islamic Extremists illegally hijack a natural honorable people's revolution which overthrew a US installed puppet banana republic dictatorship. The Islamists have proceeded to loot the country of every last natural resource literally turning the country into a dying desert. Your opinions always seem to point outward from Iran. Everything is always the fault of foreign intervention and nothing is ever the fault of or caused by the the very obviously corrupt and evil Islamic Republic. This clear biss is Obviously unwilling. You are obviously unable to include any critique of the government you are held hostage by. But it is an obvious bias nevertheless. I will now add the truth you are legally unable to include. The fact is however that Iran today begets exactly what it deserves. Iran is not innocent and Iran is an evil intentioned country that has betrayed its own people's prosperity safety security and well being in the pursuit of nefarious activities globally by interfering in regional opportunities in order to increase it's influence in matters which do not concern the will of the hostage Iranian people. Lebanon, West Bank Israel, Iraq, Syria, Yemen. None of these countries want Iranian involvement. Yet Iran directly interfers in them EXACTLY like US/UK/France colonization tactics. Iran has learned well from it's former masters. Now Iran obviously wants nukes next. Once again Iran has learned. This time from the US/Soviet Cold War tactic of threatening the world with Nuclear annihilation. The argument that Iran has any right to defend itself with nukes now falls thin and is an obvious lie when Iran's corrupt criminal leadership is busy looting the country for the ugliest purpose of personal worth building. Here's to the day when Iranians can freely express opinions and are not afraid to speak out against foreign and DOMESTIC tyranny.

Opinion is okay. If you want coverts against the existing historical facts, give me the facts to back up your claims.

There are Iranians (in case of Bruce half Iranian) who may not see what is really going on that Western governments are trying to overthrow many regimes to get their natural resources. Western governments' effort in overthrow seems self-serving and destructive towards genuine opposition as opposed to their trained and manufactured opposition.
