Iran: Challenging Three American “Truths”

Dana Abizaid

The United States recently put Iran “on notice.” National Security Advisor Michael T. Flynn stated, “The Trump Administration will no longer tolerate Iran’s provocations that threaten our interests. The days of turning a blind eye to Iran’s hostile and belligerent actions toward the United States and the world community are over.”

Are we approaching the day, when opposing the possible attack upon, or invasion of, Iran turns Critics into Criminals, in the eyes of our Government?

Iran ain't got nothing on Honey Boo Boo & Duggar Inc. as a threat to national security.

Of course; Father(land) knows best...

Iran's main enemy in the Middle East is Saudi Arabia as these are the two main powers squaring off in the battle between Shiites and Sunnis. Both countries have large amounts of oil reserves to this has great geopolitical consequences. The Sunnis fears something called the Shiite crescent which includes Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon. The US with its long-term involvement in the Middle East has got caught up in this conflict between Shiites and Sunnis which has been going on at some level for almost 1,500 years. Trump's supporters are so ignorant that they can be convinced that Iran supports ISIS which of course could not be further from the truth since Iran is Shiite and ISIS is Sunni. Because so many millions of American are profoundly ignorant of the world it should not be are for Trump and his gang of white nationalist to easily convince a large segment of the US population that Iran is evil, expansionist, and so forth and should be attacked.

It seems to me that Israel, with AIPAC and their neocon members and lackies has way more influence on American policy than Saudi Arabia. The Israeli goal has been and is to weaken Iraq, Iran, and Syria and has managed to get the US to apply US lives, limb and treasure in Israel's service. For example, the outcome of the war in Iraq may server Israel interests, but it sure as hell has not served US interests: the same applies to the neocon policy on Syria, and the same applies to the threatened use of force against Iran. To speak this truth is to invite destruction. There is no free speech here on Israel (unless it’s positive) – that is undeniable.

The subversion of US policy by the Israeli extremist regime has great influence over trump via Israeli tool Jared Kushner.

Iran, like Iraq before, is the focus of Israeli/Zionist expansionism (actual & proven), demonized by the media and the American people lied-to about history US goals/agenda, Iranian leadership and goals, all pointing

The clear lack of sane US leadership coupled with personal and Israeli-influenced/promoted antagonism/warmongering are a clear and present danger to the entire world including use of nuclear weapons in the hands of a fool and complete nutter i the ginger-chimp!

And now everyone thinks that Russia invaded Ukraine and Crimea.

This is old. Yet, it still strikes me how much Teheran and environs resemble many parts of America.

It may be old, but it sure is good.
