Weakening Iran & possibly even replacing its government is the most compelling issue for Israel & its powerful US domestic lobby, but the Israeli plan is much broader: to make the US the junior partner providing the money & weapons in an effort to militarily dominate the Middle East… Biden/Blinken administration caves on IDF killing of Shireen Abu Akleh, Syria, etc
Stuxnet was one of a series of viruses developed by Israel and the US in the early 2000s, then turned loose, under Israeli pressure, to destroy Iran’s nuclear research facilities – although Iran was compliant with international norms, and known to have no nuclear weapons program.
From the sound of things, the West is gearing up for a possible war with Iran; in reality, Israel is working from within the US government to bring the US into a war that Israel wants.
Ray McGovern probes the step-up in U.S. belligerence towards Iran – a country posing the same non-existent strategic threat as Iraq.
Thanks to “dubious intelligence” from Israel – which wants nothing more than for its neighbors to be busy for the indefinite future – Trump officials have been thinking hard about entering, or even provoking, a war with Iran.
The Iran Deal is off in large part, it appears, due to fabricated documents by Israel – read exposés by Gareth Porter and Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity
Trump’s motive in exiting the Iran deal may have been to trash yet another piece of Obama’s legacy, but the target was more than just the deal: it was Iran. Netanyahu hopes US sanctions will cause a deepening economic crisis in Iran and ultimately regime change – a small-scale version of the disintegration of the USSR.
A star-studded list of generals and spy chiefs – US & Israeli – agree that the US should stay in JCPOA. But a reality star, a radical, an Arab man-child, & a politician who has been crying wolf about Iran since 1992, these guys carry the day. Trump & Co. don’t want peace & safety. They want war with Iran.
Investigative journalist Gareth Porter dispels myths about Iran’s alleged nuclear program: Israel has been crying wolf about Iran & nukes since the 1980s (including likely forging documents), while the IAEA has been declaring Tehran’s compliance; the Ayatollah has maintained that WMDs are “unIslamic,” and Iran hasn’t used any (even against Iraq’s WMDs); Iran needs ballistic missiles as a deterrent since it has no air force; and it has never threatened aggression toward Israel.
Netanyahu’s show Monday disregarded the IDF’s statement that the Iran deal will keep nukes out of Iran for 10+ yrs. It also lacked proof. But it gave Trump (& Bibi’s own drooping voter base) memorable images and catch-phrases. The info he presented with such urgency is old & familiar to anyone who has read IAEA reports.
