As US bloodthirsty imperialists desperately push for war with Iran, their sloppiness may backfire badly


After the US drone assassination of the Iranian general Qasem Soleimani, Donald Trump rushed to justify the action. “We took action last night to stop a war,” Trump claimed. “We did not take action to start a war.

Trump's claim is so blatantly false that was immediately destroyed by independent media, anti-war journalists and activists who provided information contrary to the typical US corporate media propaganda and their talking heads who rushed to spread the Trump-excuse.

Apart from the fact that Qasem Soleimani played a key role on defeating ISIS Islamofascists, he was particularly popular among Iranians and Shia Muslims. And furthermore, the Iraqi Prime Minister revealed that the Iranian top general was on a peace mission when assassinated.

Indeed, as The Grayzone reported, "According to Abdul-Mahdi [Iraqi Prime Minister], he had planned to meet Soleimani on the morning the general was killed to discuss a diplomatic rapproachment that Iraq was brokering between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Abdul-Mahdi said that Trump personally thanked him for the efforts, even as he was planning the hit on Soleimani – thus creating the impression that the Iranian general was safe to travel to Baghdad. Soleimani had arrived in Baghdad not to plan attacks on American targets, but to coordinate de-escalation with Saudi Arabia. Indeed, he was killed while on an actual peace mission that could have created political distance between the Gulf monarchy and members of the US-led anti-Iran axis like Israel."

We already knew that the 'pathological liar' who plays the role of the US president is completely unreliable, and in this case, everything shows that he is lying again. The preposterous action to approve the assassination of a top military official of a foreign country is not only an act of war. It could not only dangerously provoke another devastating war in the Middle East. It is also an action that aimed to give a life extension to the US proxies in the region.

And this is exactly the plan of the neocons and the Zionists around Trump. It is known that Soleimani was Mossad's top target for years. So, it is more than obvious that the US bloodthirsty imperialists are desperately pushing for war with Iran at any cost.

The assassination of Soleimani aims to put Iran in the corner. It was designed to push Iran to make a move that would give the necessary excuse to the US war machine to take military action against the country.

In case that Iran remain silent, doing nothing, it would mean that the US imperialists will be free to kill whoever they want, no matter how high in the Iranian hierarchy, without any consequences. It would also mean that the US war machine will be free to bomb any target at will, on the pretext of 'terrorism' without being obliged to give the slightest proof for its actions. It would look like an one-sided war in which the other side just sits back and take it in order to avoid further all-out war and subsequent disaster.

In case that Iran decides to respond dynamically, the US imperialists will have the pretext they want in order to start a war. Even the 'retaliation' declarations from the Iranian officials could be used properly. The imperialists could now orchestrate a typical false flag operation and present it as an act of revenge by the Iranians.

However, the assassination of Soleimani could backfire in many ways against the US imperialists and their Zionist allies.

First of all, Soleimani's assassination could further unite Iranians, despite any anger among parts of the population about government's policies. The US intelligence would find almost impossible to divide the population by implementing typical CIA methods and strategies that worked in other cases. Iranians would recognize a potential US invasion as the greatest threat against their sovereignty and prosperity. As PressTV reported, "A huge sea of mourners, streaming from all the adjoining streets in freezing temperatures, descended on the iconic Engelab Square in central Tehran Monday morning before rallying to Azadi Tower in the capital's west. [...] A correspondent for the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) said he had not seen such a crowd in 20 years in Tehran, where important occasions usually draw people in millions."

Second, let's not forget that the US drone strike in Baghdad that killed Soleimani also killed Iraq's anti-terror commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. This is probably the greatest evidence about the anxiety of the US imperialists to provoke Iran, leading to an unprecedented sloppiness and even stupidity. By killing al-Muhandis, the imperialists 'managed' to accelerate the re-approach between not only Iraq and Iran leaderships, but also between the people of these countries. It seems that the simultaneous assassination of the two officials created a strong symbolism, which could unite Iraqis and Iranians against the common enemy.

Third, Iran will now accelerate its nuclear program and it will be almost impossible for anyone to convince Iranians to return to the negotiation table for a new deal. Furthermore, other small-medium nuclear powers (and not only North Korea), will realize that definitely can't trust the US imperialists. Therefore, any negotiations about their nuclear arsenal would be pointless.

Fourth, Trump actually ruined any attempt to re-build his image as 'anti-interventionist'. Many Trump supporters praised his decision to kick out from his cabinet the top warhawk neocon, John Bolton, who was pushing for war with Iran at least since 2003. Yet, now, it looks like Trump is following Bolton's plan to the letter. This is a strong indication that, in reality, Trump is a weak president who can't handle the pressure coming from the deep state, and therefore, eventually slips towards its warmongering agenda.

It is characteristic that many Twitter users reminded Trump's tweets and statements, claiming that Barack Obama was wiling to start a war with Iran in order to get elected. Now he is doing the same, despite the fact that he was self-promoted as 'anti-interventionist'. Yet, his current behavior may cost him the chance of a second term because many Americans, who are tired from the US endless wars, voted Trump explicitly for his 'anti-interventionist' profile.

The US imperialists escalate tension with Iran, trying to achieve a maximum that will coincide with the 2020 US presidential election. The US deep state will take action to eliminate the chances of any anti-war progressive to become the next US president. Then, either a corporate Democrat or Trump will follow the plan and start a war with Iran. Yet, with such a mess in the Middle East and a united Iran-Iraq front, the US imperialists and their allies may soon realize that what they are planning would probably turn out into a suicide mission.

And eventually, the whole situation will only accelerate the decline of the US empire ...

Update:

Iran surprised the imperialists through a rapid response. Just minutes before the Iranian attack on two US bases inside Iraq, Trump stupidly provoked the Iranian retaliation:


But now the ball is inside the US court and the 'orange liar' in a very difficult position. If he chooses to start an all-out war with Iran, he can forget a second term. And in fact, this could be the plan of the US deep state. As the people who pull the strings know that Trump can be easily handled, they may use him to achieve a double hit: start the war they want and, at the same time, get rid of him. On the other hand, if Trump shows 'weakness', hesitating to respond quickly, the US deep state will bury him in no time. Because of his irresponsible behavior, he is now in front of a dead end.

Former CIA high-ranking official accidentally reveals the type of the false flag operation that the US imperialists will orchestrate to start a war with Iran

globinfo freexchange
In the following video, Jimmy Dore makes an analysis of an interview that the former CIA deputy director, Michael Morell, gave on CBS, regarding the recent developments after the assassination of the Iranian major general, Qasem Soleimani. 
Morell describes a probable scenario according to which the Iranians and their proxies could retaliate further. And therefore, this will naturally and eventually lead the US to start a war with Iran. As Morell points out:
                    Hopefully, that can de-escalate now, but that doesn't mean the covert war is over. [...] There are two things we need to think about here. One is, still, down the road, at some point, an assassination of a senior US official, somewhere in the world, could be months from now, to get revenge. And then, two, we still have to worry about those Iranian proxies. They may still attack US military bases ...

Note, that this interview was taken AFTER the Iranian retaliation through the missile att…

Suppression before uprising: how the system attempts to push societies away from the practice of protesting

globinfo freexchange
Six years ago we wrote that controlled information that reaches the media and reproduced by them, may include the overestimated capability of governments to monitor, for example, an extremely large number of phone conversations. Even if there is such a possibility, such huge amount of data is extremely difficult to be processed. However, the technology is evolving rapidly, and possibly will allow processing of large amount of data in very short time, in the near future. When technology will allow this, people will have already become familiar with the idea that any conversation can be investigated and processed any time.
Today, it seems that not only we reached that point, but the establishment apparatus seeks to 'train' us to accept an elevated form of suppression, through a rapidly growing surveillance technology.

A recent article published in NY Times proves that the establishment apparatus will seek to expand the suppression state in unprecedented leve…

Μα καλά, δεν βρέθηκε ένας να του δείξει ως που μπορούν να φτάσουν οι Ιρανικοί πύραυλοι;

failed evolution
Οι φάπες πέφτουν σύννεφο και απ'ότι φαίνεται, στις όποιες διαπραγματεύσεις, η σημερινή κυβέρνηση παριστάνει τη γλάστρα, χωρίς να απαιτεί το παραμικρό.
Και σαν να μην έφταναν όλα αυτά, ο Κούλης έσπευσε να επικροτήσει την απαράδεκτη ενέργεια του Τραμπ να δώσει εντολή για τη δολοφονία του κορυφαίου Ιρανού στρατηγού, Κασέμ Σουλεϊμανί.  
Δυστυχώς, είχαμε και πάλι δίκιο. Η χώρα ήδη πληρώνει την απόλυτα ανεύθυνη στάση Μητσοτάκη, καθώς το Ιράν προέβη σε έντονο διάβημα διαμαρτυρίας, με τον Ιρανό πρέσβη να φέρεται να δηλώνει ότι «Ούτε άλλες χώρες της ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης με τις οποίες έχουμε κακές σχέσεις δεν τοποθετήθηκαν έτσι». 
Όμως το Ιράν φαίνεται να προχώρησε παραπέρα, θέτοντας θέμα Αμερικανικών βάσεων στην Ελλάδα, στέλνοντας μια επιστολή στην Καθημερινή και αναφέροντας, μεταξύ άλλων: "Η Ισλαμική Δημοκρατία του Ιράν έχει δηλώσει ξεκάθαρα ότι σε περίπτωση επιβολής πολέμου κατά της χώρας από την Αμερική, η διάθεση βάσεων από οποιαδήποτε χώρα στον αμερικανικό εισβολέα …

Why the US imperialists will start a war with Iran right after the 2020 US presidential election

by system failure
Even before 2016 US presidential election we were arguing in this blog that Donald Trump is only the reserve of the establishment, a necessity solution. The first signs, right after his election, were indicating that we were right. Trump literally hired Goldman Sachs to run the economy and immediately authorized further tax-cuts for the super-rich, contrary to his pre-election rhetoric.
Then, things got even worse by hiring some of the most bloodthirsty neocons in key positions. Trump's 'anti-establishment' facade was rapidly collapsing as he was  starting to move towards the US deep state agenda. In fact, the only card left to play was that of his alleged 'anti-interventionism'. Yet, he succumbed further to the US pro-war cabal by bombing Syria, without even waiting to see some evidence about Assad's alleged chemical attacks against civilians. 
Beyond that, he continued Obama's awful legacy regarding the war in Yemen, by arming Saudis and…

Bolivia’s free territory of Chapare has ousted the coup regime and is bracing for a bloody re-invasion

Spending time with the union members of Chapare, who run society in a collective fashion, offers special insights into the resistance to the coup. They succeeded in expelling the police, but now fear a bloodbath in retaliation.

by Ollie Vargas
Part 1

Known as Bolivia’s Chapare region, the Tropico of Cochabamba is a sanctuary for elected President Evo Morales’ most dedicated base of support. Since the November 10 coup, it has effectively become a self-governing territory where the military junta is absent.

The police and military were sent in full retreat from this area the coup began and were told they would only be welcomed back if the they “get on their knees and apologize” to the community.

In this 12,000 square kilometer swath of land, hundreds of unions have flourished over the years. I spent several days with the union rank and file, witnessing how they run society in a collective fashion, and how they have organized ferocious resistance to a right-wing coup government that threat…

US-backed parties have infiltrated Lebanon’s protests, pushing the country toward war amid economic collapse

By joining the roadblocks around Beirut, protesters allowed themselves to be used by US-allied parties playing a dangerous game that has the potential to explode into open warfare
by Rania Khalek
Part 4 - Cooperation and integration versus the West’s recipe for fragmentation
The Lebanese economy is facing imminent collapse. Unemployment is spreading, prices are spiking and the street price of the Lebanese lira continues to devalue. There is little that can be done to avoid the collapse, which has been thirty years in the making.

The implosion of the Lebanese economy is spilling over into Syria, which was already teetering on the edge of economic collapse due to eight years of war, government mismanagement and US sanctions designed to collapse the country. Syria was relying on Lebanon as its access point to purchase goods for imports. Now that too is gone. Lebanon’s economic crisis is also affecting Syrian elites who placed their money in Lebanese banks during the war and cannot access i…

Antisemitism claims have one goal: To stop Jeremy Corbyn winning power

The Jewish community’s alienation from Labour has been years in the making - but it is Johnson's Conservatives who have embraced hostility to minorities
Jonathan Cook
Part 11 - One-sided programme
Respondents had been influenced, Philo pointed out, by headlines like “Corbyn’s antisemite army” or descriptions of Labour as “riddled with antisemites”. He also noted the role of the BBC, which is widely trusted, in bolstering the misleading coverage. 
Its recent Panorama programme “Is Labour Anti-Semitic?” presented 17 former Labour staffers attacking the Corbyn-led party. But the programme-makers failed to identify who these critics were. Many were in fact Israel lobbyists – one was even a former employee of the Israeli embassy in London.

While the show included one person replying to the complaints, it entirely excluded the many Jewish voices in Labour that defend Corbyn. Philo observed that both the BBC and Guardian, two media organisations often seen as offering a counterweight to th…

Ex-US intel officer: Pompeo 'lying through his teeth' on Iran

The Grayzone
The Trump administration is imposing new sanctions on Iran and defying Iraq's call for a US troop withdrawal. This comes as the stated rationale for the US assassination of Qasem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis is being undermined by its top officials' own statements. Scott Ritter, a former Marine Corps intelligence officer, analyzes the increased White House coercion efforts and collapsing intelligence claims.

Big tech firms are joining Trump’s all out war against Iran

Deleting messages of support for Iran may seem a petty, childish retaliation for opposing the Trump administration, but it has profound ramifications for freedom of access to information.
by Alan Macleod 
Silicon Valley giant Facebook announced Friday that it would be deleting all positive posts about recently assassinated Iranian general Qassem Soleimani on its platform and its subsidiary Instagram. The reason for this, it explained to CNN, was that the new U.S. sanctions made it illegal to promote any message supporting a person or group that the government describes as a terrorist organization. “We operate under U.S. sanctions laws, including those related to the U.S. government’s designation of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and its leadership,” a Facebook spokesperson said. 
Instagram had already closed Soleimani’s account in April last year, following Trump’s designation of the IRGC as a terrorist group. Following the news Friday, Twitter suspended Iranian Supreme L…

Part 3 - Fear of Amal, hatred of corrupt leadership, and lack of ideology
In Tyre, protesters tore down Berri’s posters and torched the Tyre Rest House Resort, which they believe is owned by Randa Berri, though Nabih Berri denied it. When I visited Tyre two weeks later, hundreds of new posters of Berri had been erected that read, “the guarantor of Lebanon” and “we are all with you [Berri].”

The posters surrounded the small protest encampment located in a roundabout on the beach road. The protest was part art fair, part concert for families, with liberals and a few leftists filling the ranks. Demonstrators were careful not to name leaders like Berri in their chants and when interviewed, they often spoke in vague terms out of fear of Amal. Later in the night, Amal members provoked the protesters…
