US/Israeli Anti-Iran Plot

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

America and Israel comprise the real axis of evil, rogue states partnering in each other’s high crimes, both with megalomaniacal hegemonic aims – menacing the Middle East and planet earth.

According to Israel’s Channel 10, US and Israeli military and intelligence officials agreed on what amounts to a sinister anti-Iran plot – consummated at the White House on December 12 by HR McMaster and Meir Ben-Shabbat, Netanyahu’s national security advisor.

Agreement was reportedly reached to confront a nonexistent Iranian threat in Syria and its support for Hezbollah – falsely designated a terrorist organization.

Along with Syria, Iran and Russia, it’s on the front lines in combatting US/Israeli-supported ISIS and other terrorist groups.

Separately, US and Israeli officials agreed to challenge Iran’s nonexistent ambition to develop nuclear weapons.

Israel is the region’s only nuclear armed and dangerous state – along with America’s presence.

Agreement was also reached to deal with Iran’s entirely legal ballistic missile program. Teams will be established to confront a nonexistent “Iran threat” – how remains to be seen.

According to Israel’s Channel 10, Trump and Netanyahu “see eye-to-eye on the trends and processes in the region” – the station citing senior US and Israeli officials as sources of its report.

In October, Trump refused to re-certify the JCPOA nuclear deal, stopping short of withdrawal, maybe to come later.

He’s militantly anti-Iran, turning truth on its head, calling its government a corrupt dictatorship…whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, and chaos,” adding:

“We cannot let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building dangerous missiles.”

He barely stopped short of declaring war on the Islamic Republic. Is that his intention later on at a time of his choosing, a convenient pretext to be used as justification?

Propaganda wars precede hot ones. The pattern is familiar. Targeted nations are demonized before attacking them, phony threats created.

Media scoundrels play a vital role, repeating state-sponsored propaganda endlessly, manipulating the public mind to accept the unacceptable on the phony pretext of protecting unthreatened national security.

Trump lied claiming “a fanatical regime” controls Iran, falsely accusing its leadership of links to al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups. Just the opposite is true.

He turned truth on its head saying Tehran “continues develop(ment) (of) certain elements of its nuclear (weapons) program.” No such program exists, not now or earlier.

Is war on Iran likely ahead? Did Trump and Netanyahu agree to launch joint naked aggression on the country?

Ziofascists stop at nothing to achieve their objectives. The unthinkable ahead is possible – against Iran, Syria, North Korea and other nation’s on Washington’s target list.

The outlook for 2018 and beyond is grim. New US war theaters on top of current ones are likely ahead – Iran and North Korea possible targets.
