Is America's standard practice of CIA-led infiltration of dissident groups in order to effect regime change happening again in Iran?
- What do they keep trying to tell us about Iran?
That Iran's leadership is oppressive; that Iran's women are especially oppressed; that no political protests are allowed in Iran, and that Iran is a dangerous enemy of Israel.
- What do they not talk about?
That Israel has nukes while Iran is forbidden to have them. This makes Israel's mantra "A tiny country surrounded by enemies" seem somewhat overblown. Besides, there are lots of Jews living contentedly in Iran; is Israel threatening to nuke them as well?
Or are Persian Jews not considered real Jews? Either way, any rationale regarding Iran's Jews would make Israel look awfully callous (if not racist), don't you think?
- Also not talked about: The religious dress code for Iranian women is actually fairly lax and a whole fashion industry exists around it, creating some of the most gorgeous outfits you'll ever see.
- Again - not talked about: There are dissenters in every single country on earth, and it takes only a few, persistent outside infiltrators, planted by troublemakers in high places, to get a so-called "popular uprising" going. That's how the U.S. managed to install the Shah.
But the corrupt Shah was brought down by a genuine people's revolution (though an attempted coup under the auspices of the CIA tried to foil it) and the oil industry was then nationalized, with the proceeds redirected to Iran's own people rather than to the greedy oil barons.
Now read this and/or this regarding the motives of the U.S. in tearing apart Iraq. Same western oil greed; same perceived threat from a leadership that wanted the profits to benefit Iraq.
Regardless of whatever Israel's motives may be, it seems clear the U.S. is attempting to accomplish in Iran precisely what it did in Iraq.
Iran's Revolutionary Guards Vow To Crush Dissent As Protests Extend Into Fourth Day
This statement echoes the ones put forward by Syria during the so-called "spontaneous", "popular" revolt against the government that occurred there -- and which had to be augmented by ISIS terrorists financed by the US/Saudi Arabia -- yet failed due to most Syrians not being interested at all in bringing down the government.
"Regime Change" for selfish western purposes has occurred so frequently over the years that it's become a household term.
As for Iran's reaction to the protesters, how can one possibly demonize that country for carrying out what is standard procedure in all so-called civilized countries when faced with uprisings?
Do I have to remind anyone of how Canada responded militarily during the "FLQ" uprising in Quebec, closing in so tightly on the protesters that they actually committed the crime the military was supposed to prevent? See also: The War Measures Act (PDF)
We're going to see a lot of stuff in the media about Iran's brutality against the protesters, but just Google this: "How many protesters killed in U.S. by police in 2017"
A statement from the White House suggesting that "the activists taking to streets" in Iran are justified, and that "the world is watching", is pretty hypocritical of the Trump administration. It's also a bit of a Freudian slip suggesting the US may be a little too supportive.
History has taught Iran to suspect U.S. infiltration, and is probably the reason Iran has sometimes arrested certain American visitors under suspicion of being up to no good.
It's also weirdly ironic that the phrase "the world is watching" is lifted directly out of the Kent State cries against a very public massacre of peaceful student protesters in 1970.

Hi Penny: Thanks for your note. I know you're keeping good tabs on the ME, and about Israel wanting to get at Iran. I just don't think I've ever seen anything definitive as to exactly why Israel needs Iran squashed. Israel could nuke Iran anytime they wanted to - so between Israel and the US, Iran is cornered anyway. Must be that both the US and Israel want to be able to control Iran's oil distribution.
"I just don't think I've ever seen anything definitive as to exactly why Israel needs Iran squashed."
Thanks, Penny. You've made me feel less alone with this quandary.

I truly wish I could, Vahid, but my travelling days are behind me. I've seen many beautiful photos of Iran, though, and it would be a terrible shame to bomb all that beauty.
