UPDATE: Russia opposes ‘Libyan scenario’ in Syria and will block resolution
Syrian government accepted Russian brokered peace talks with opposition
The Syrian “rebels/activists” rejected a Russian brokered peace talks
The Syrian “rebels/activists” sabotage state run natural gas pipeline and murdered a doctor
“So, I came back to see him (in the Pentagon) a few weeks later (October of 2001) and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan and I said “Are we still going to war with Iraq?” and he said “It’s worse than that.” He said.. he reached over on his desk and he picked up a piece of paper and he said “I just got this down from upstairs today..” meaning the Secretary of Defense’s office… and he said “this is a memo that describes how we are going to take out 7 countries in 5 years.. starting with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and finishing off Iran.” Gen. Westley Clark
When every single MSM “news” outlet is on the same page, reporting “activist said” unsubstantiated propaganda pertaining to Libya, Somalia and Syria as unquestionable fact, the current administration is free to do whatever they want with no fear of reprisal from their so-called “progressive” supporters. That means the Obama administration of “CHANGE” is able to openly continue yet another horrendous and illegal policy of the Bush administration, the neoliberalization of several state centered nations, unencumbered by the inherent restrictions of democracy ie the “will of the people” who would never support premeditated invasions and occupations of other nations for the express interests of multinational corporations and financial institutions.
Just as the complicit corporatist media assisted the Bush regime in manufacturing consent for the illegal invasion of Iraq, they are doing the exact same thing now under the Obama administration as they openly continue to fulfill the “7 countries in 5 years” agenda set so long ago.

Advocates of a hot war with Iran have just taken some heavy hits from a Harvard professor of international relations and two prominent journalists.
Harvard’s Professor Stephen Walt has savaged an article in the forthcoming “Foreign Affairs” magazine(Jan.-Feb.) by Matthew Kroenig titled, “Time to Attack Iran: Why a Strike Is the Least Bad Option.” Kroenig is an Assistant Professor of Government at Georgetown University who wrote:
“The truth is that a military strike intended to destroy Iran’s nuclear program, if managed carefully, could spare the region and the world a very real threat and dramatically improve the long-term national security of the United States.”
Calling this “a remarkably poor piece of advocacy,” Harvard’s Walt writes that Kroenig “makes the case for war by assuming everything will go south if the U.S. does not attack and that everything will go swimmingly if it does. This is not fair-minded ‘analysis’; it is simply a brief for war designed to reach a predetermined conclusion,” Walt writes of the “Foreign Affairs” piece.

In every crisis, real or manufactured, there is… opportunity.
Contrary to Julian Assange’s assessment, the current wave of pro-democracy movements in the Middle East (recently called a “virus” by John McCain) was not created by the CIA honeypot called Wikileaks. Nor, as the one-time Lyndon LaRouche follower Webster Tarpley has put it, was it all a CIA destabilization plan. There are causes that track back to the United States, English banks, and Wall Street which mainly deal with accelerating food prices due to rampant speculation, a global wave of unemployment due to a planned demolition of the global economy, and the despotic dictatorial rule by U.S. and British friendly puppet regimes, so yes, you can trace the roots of these outbreaks back to the global interests the CIA serves.
But these uprisings are mainly in countries that already serve our “national interests” ie our banks and multi-national corporations and many of them are critically important to ongoing venture capital programs like Egypt (Suez Canal) and Yemen (Hunt Oil Pipeline) for starters.
So why lite those fires when the outcome is uncertain at best?
C.I.A. destabilization plans are used in countries that are not already friendly to our interests (see above) such as Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, and of course… Iran. The differences between the real revolutions and the fake ones are very important. We cannot forget.
… the struggle against power “is the struggle of memory against forgetting.” Milan Kundera

On June 24, 2009 I wrote an article called “Compare and Contrast: One is Real the Other is Fake” which explained how I thought the Neda killing in Iran was a staged attempt to ferment indignation in Iran and the rest of the world against the ruling party that had just won the election. It was yet another example of an attempt to overthrow a regime that was unfriendly to U.S. corporations and bankers probably devised by the CIA like so many in the past. I have done several stories on the Iranian Election Propaganda campaign that was designed to give cause to overthrow Iran.
Well, even some of my regulars here thought I had gone overboard on that one. But now there is a documentary out now showing clearer images of the entire thing and you can see it’s an obviously staged event. She’s got the tube of fake blood in her left hand and you can see her apply it to her own face after it squirts out a bit and runs down her hand and down her arm. She then drops the tube of fake blood and the doctor who helped stage the event tries to push it under her so the camera won’t see it.
Then they had to restage the propaganda “money shot” sometime later and they screwed that up in a rushed effort to get it out and on the front page of every newspaper in the world while the story was breaking. Of course they had no real concern about it being an accurate recreation of the scenen since they already knew “journalists” like Andrew Sullivan were already in the bag.

***UPDATE*** MASSIVE RALLIES, tens of thousands of Iranians, in support of the current Iranian government DWARF the small clans of roving free-market Yuppies. They also don’t set fires, attack police officers, or stage more fake death scenes. Film at 11.
Andrew Sullivan and Amy Goodman would have you believe that we have to attack Iran because a bunch of free-market loving businessmen aren’t allowed the “freedom” to throw rocks at cops all day and set fire to buildings without being arrested. I disagree.
In the first photo you see here, this one is the unclipped version that many websites and news agencies are running with. They all have clipped out the upper left side so as not to show the guy in the business suit attacking a cop with a weapon. That’s pretty much the size of this whole thing in a nutshell. Almost looks like a female cop too, doesn’t it? Kinda gives you an idea of the level of integrity of that “news” service, doesn’t it?
***UPDATE*** - Looks like President Ahmadinejad agrees with me… a bad play written and performed by rank amateurs..
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad branded Sunday’s anti-government protests as a “nauseating play” staged by the United States and Israel, state news agency IRNA reported. Raw Story
Attack of the Free-Market Yuppies
In almost every single video, in almost every single photo, what you actually see coming out of Iran this weekend is quite a different story than what the MSM and certain blogs are pretending it is.
The victims are actually the police being attacked over and over by an over zealous mob of free-market supporters.
You see more police stations being looted and burned by the rowdy mob of what looks like Yuppie business school graduates. You see police cars being turned over. You see… wait for it… a mob of the same business school free-market jackals running up to “save” two supposed bank robbers from the most ridiculously fake hanging scene ever staged by a phony PR “revolutionary” in history.

Does THIS look like “several thousand” protesters as described in war profiteer GE’s MSNBC/AP article?
"Thousands" of protesters? Give me a break.
(Let’s count them together 1,2,3,…. 25…. 25…. 25…. I count 25 Young Republican looking guys. Now I could be wrong… let’s count them again just to be sure. Wouldn’t want to report something that was complete BULLSHIT, now would I? 1, 2, 3, … 25. I keep getting 25. Is that close to “thousands”?)

The political movement of defeated Iranian presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi, named the “Green Wave” due to its campaign color, has striking parallels with the US-backed “color revolutions” in the former Soviet republics of Georgia and Ukraine.
Like the campaigns to bring to power pro-US regimes in Georgia (2003) and Ukraine (2004), the campaign around Mousavi has been backed by powerful sections of the Iranian establishment and supported by Washington, the US media and the European powers. As in Tehran, better-off layers of the urban middle classes dominated the large opposition protests in Tbilisi and Kiev.

Americans celebrate July 4, they can contemplate that the union of “free and independent states,” like the former British colonial power, has evolved into its final manifestation–a complete whore house. While Members of Parliament in London charge their expense accounts with every personal expenditure, including the rental of adult xxx-rated films, an American newspaper put the reporting of public policy out to bids until politico.com blew the whistle.

“… a report emerged of the hangings of six supporters of defeated candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi“ JPost
“… sources in Iran told this reporter in a telephone interview…”
“… no independent confirmation of the report… “
There used to be a time when unsourced, unconfirmed propaganda couldn’t make it past your laughing editor. Didn’t some guy get fired some years back for “making up” stories at the New York Times?
Now, after the “Twitter/Tru-Cast Propaganda Revolution” and “WMDs in Iraq“, it’s just a no-holds-barred lie fest in the democratic (read as globalist imperialistic neo-liberal) countries of the world.
This is what comes of no accountability, folks.For all of you “progressives” that worked and worked to keep from impeaching Bush and Cheney because someone lied to you and told you it might hurt precious Obama’s chances… this is what you get. And it will get worse.
When you don’t hold an administration accountable for lies and murder and torture and war-crimes… you can expect it’s evil to “trickle-down” to other parts of the country and to it’s allies all across the world.

The son of the notorious Iranian dictator Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran, is claiming on Israeli television (the IBA – Israeli Broadcasting Authority) not only that he knows he will return to power in Iran but that under his rule, the climate of aggression between Iran and Israel will be over. Seated next to the flag used by his father during his brutal 30 reign in Iran, Reza Pahlavi promised that he would return to a “prominant role” in Iranian affairs. “My moment for the return to my country will come, I assure you.” Shah-to-be
