Washington Eyes Iran Proxy War through Israel

category international | anti-war / imperialism | other press author Tuesday August 21, 2012 13:29author by pat c Report this post to the editors

While one proxy war is going on in Syria, Dr Ismail Salami wtites on how the US is preparing to wage another proxy war on Iran through Israel. Dr Ismail also analyses the previous US proxy war when they Usefd Iraq to attack Iran. Full text at link.

The Israeli narrative of launching an attack on Iran's nuclear plants has been so overpoweringly hyped up and taken for granted by Israeli media that one achieves certitude that such an attack will happen and that Iran will sit idly in the manner of a befuddled, thunderstruck and petrified nation. Strangely, western and Israeli media aggrandize the military prowess of Israel to the skies and underestimate that of Iran..

Playing on a paradoxical plane, the US-led psyops against Iran are geared towards inflating the Iranian nuclear threat and manufacturing a nuclear illusion over Iran while the same authors of anti-Iran plots relegate the country's military might to such a pitiful minimum that Iran will eventually have no choice but to buckle under the military might of the Zionist regime

The fact is that Israel has a long history of showing teeth to and spewing out threats against Iran and that it has never mustered up enough courage to launch such an attack as it knows the consequences of such grave foolhardiness. Despite the claims of some western analysts such as Richard Silverstein who have even elaborated on an Iranian war plan by Israel, a glance at the history of threats against and lies about Iran sheds light on the banality of these claims and reveals who really steers this malicious bark of threats against the Islamic Republic.
