US FOREIGN POLICY; RIEDEL, IRAN, RUSSIA...

US foreign policy:

A. Put the 'bad guys' into power (eg Saddam, the Ayatollahs).

B. Get the 'bad guys' to fight each other (eg Iran-Iraq war).

C. This keeps America's rivals (eg Iraq, Iran) weak.

D. And makes lots of money for America's military-industrial complex.

Russia and China need to watch out.



In July 2012, Bruce Riedel, formerly of the CIA, reminded us of 'The Last Time We Fought Iran'

According to Bruce Riedel:

1. President Reagan went to war with Iran.

By 1987 America was involved in an 'undeclared' naval and air war against Iran.

2. Both Iraq and Iran came to believe that the the USA had manipulated them.

Israel supplied spare parts for the Iranian air force’s U.S.-built built jets throughout the war. 

With Iran-Contra, the USA supplied weapons to Iran.

Iran-Contra was in many ways Israel's idea. 

The Iran-Contra affair convinced Saddam's Iraq, rightly, that the U.S. was trying to play both sides of the conflict. 

Rumsfeld and Saddam

The Saudis, Kuwaitis and Emiratis gave Saddam billions of loans to fight the war. 

Jordanian “volunteers” fought with Iraq. 

Iran believes the US inflicted the war on them.

Iran notes that the United Nations did not condemn Iraq for starting the war and never sanctioned Iraq for the use of chemical weapons.


3. By 1987, Iran's oil exports were minimal and its economy was shattered.

However, the Iran-Iraq war strengthened the leaders of Iran.


4. "So expect another conflict to make Iran more extreme and more determined to get the bomb while it rallies Iranians behind the mullahs."

Iran will look for "our vulnerabilities in Afghanistan and Bahrain, Israel’s in Lebanon and the Saudis’ in Yemen to exploit."

Meir Dagan, of Mossad, has said that a military attack on Iran would be “stupid.” 




Today, the CIA's al Qaeda, based in Libya, are being used to destabilise Mali, Algeria, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan...

The idea is to achieve US control of every country in the region.

And help the USA's military-Industrial-Narco complex.

In 2011, the US sold $66.3 billion of weapons overseas, which is nearly 78 percent of all global arms sales.

The top customers were the USA's Moslem colonies, such as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, and the US colony of India (Top gun: Saudi, India deals push US arms sales to record $66 billion).



According to the UK's Daily Star, SAS HUNT BIO ARMS, US, UK and French special forces troops are in or around Syria.

And the special forces are accompanied by MI6 and the CIA. 

According to blogger Tony Cartalucci:

 "Brookings Institution's Bruce Riedel in his article, "The New Al Qaeda Menace," admits that Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) is now heavily armed thanks to NATO's intervention in Libya, and that AQIM's base in Mali, North Africa, serves as a staging ground for terrorist activities across the region."


According to Tony Cartalucci:

"NATO's terrorist blitzkrieg across the Arab World will not end in Syria.

"It will continue, if allowed, into Iran, through the Caucasus Mountains and into Russia, across China's western borders, and even across Southeast Asia..."

Further news on '50 Shades...'

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-19395813

Should children be allowed to read it.

I wonder who sanctions the pushing of a book [ aka a literary device ] that apparently has no literary qualities at all.

cheers

@ aferrismoon re: 50 shades.
I hadn't paid too much attention to 50 shades. That is I was informed about, had a few relatively brief discussions, read a bit of it and flicked it. After the Twilight phenomenon, it just seemed like the next logical step. By this I mean, Twilight, to me at least, seemed like a mass cultural psyop, not just at the more overt level of the steering and rationalisation of what may be deemed 'battered wife syndrome'vampires are nice people'but a deeper attack on the feminine psyche evidencing, once again unfortunately, that someone knows us better than we know ourselves. There's nothing curious about the rise of the likes of Romney.
Having just spent some time looking at the who, what, whens and whyfors of 50 shades leaves me with more than just an impression that this is all very much more than a little organised and managed.
If Twilight was the tenderiser, 50 shades is the grinder.

50 shades is pedophilia in disguise, and horrible writing at that. Killing two birds with one stone- destroy "art" with collectivism and mediocrity above all, and child/adult sex promoted under the guise of "liberation".

@ kristin. Yes. I was skirting around flatly stating ' I think they know that'. I'm also wondering, among other things, how it is that a middle-aged, reportedly educated professional in the film industry managed to craft a piece evidencing such paucity in literary style and composition. Or is that reflective of the typical developmental level and mindset in the industry.
I keep glancing at my dusty old copy of Atwood's prophetic-lite Handmaid's Tale.
Tick, tick...

Speaking of Iran, I'm surprised you didn't mention the upcoming summit of the Non-Aligned Movement in Tehran.

The US-Zionist media have denigrated the summit, of course, and minimized its importance. However they know exactly what it means and are deeply troubled by it.

They have no cause to be troubled.

Instead they have cause to be deeply terrified.

Out of necessity, the rest of the world not in the NATO club is starting to cooperate in mutual defence. The Eurasian landmass, the World Island as Mackinder called it, home to most of the planet's resources, natural, human and manufacturing, as Zbig rightly points out, the Eurasian landmass is gradually becoming a titanic hyperpower, beyond even the hyperpower of the US military machine.

The Americans have been asleep and ignoring the consequences of their own actions.

The Zionists have been busy digging their own graves. Did Israeli psychopaths like Barak and Bibi really think they could continue their current course without Americans abandoning them out of geostrategic necessity?

The Americans have been gutting their industry, treating the world's resources like their own personal property, terrorizing the weak and the humble, and financializing themselves into a parasitic extractive casino run for the benefit of shortsighted, soulless, moronic bankers.

Now what's happening to the Americans? Now their children are waking up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

The tragic thing is that none of this need happen. The Iranian and American peoples have far more that binds them than that separates them. Both nations need to sit down and methodically negotiate their way to a humane relationship that fairly respects the interests of both parties. This means no more free ride for the Americans. But this looks unlikely. Both peoples will end up being penalized by the incompetence of governments.

Even sadder is that culturally and religiously even Iranians and Americans really are sister nations. Different, yes, poorly understanding each other, yes. But both from a monotheistic heritage, both revering Jesus, for instance. Maybe these governments need to ask themselves: what would Jesus do? Probably not bring the world to the brink of global thermonuclear warfare is what.

If we fail to see humanity and justice in international relations very soon, there will be blood on the floor.
