Iranian Elections: US Trying to Avoid War by Undermining the Regime

[1] Ahmedinejad-president-iran-illuminati-sign-150I do certainly not like the dictatorial, fanatic Shiite-Muslim regime in Iran. However, I have a natural scepsis as to the media approach to the ongoing protests in the wake of the recent elections.
Everybody tells us that Mousavi won the electios – although, in fact Ahmedinejad is a very poular man among Iranians. According to the [2] Guardian 15 June, 2009, pre-election polls showed about 2/3 s of votes going to Ahmedinejad!  Before other countries, including the United States, jump to the conclusion that the Iranian presidential elections were fraudulent, with the grave consequences such charges could bring, they should consider all independent information. The fact may simply be that the re-election of President Ahmadinejad is what the Iranian people wanted.
This article originally appeared in the Washington Post. Here is a [3] survey of the US maneuvres to manipulate Iran for more than 50 years.

That the elections were irregular is apparently beyond question [4] The Times 22 June :  In 50 Iranian cities the number of votes cast in this month presidential election exceeded the number of eligible voters, the state's election watchdog admitted today. 
Since the elections an unknown number of protesters are have taken to Iran´s streets to demand reelections. The number of dead casualties is uncertain – but [5] according to the CNN police brutality is outspoken.

Indications that the US is behind the revolt in Iran
That the US is directly involved is admitted in this
[6] ABC News video from 14 June 2009.
Here is a [7] video showing former US National Security Adviser to Presidents Gerald Ford and George HW Bush, Mr Brent  Scowcroft. He admits that the US has agents on the ground in Iran - but that they can do nothing to help the protesters.

  [8] The Telegraph 16 May 2007: Former US ambassador to the UN, John Bolton said. Economic sanctions "with pain" had to be the next step, followed by attempting to overthrow the theocratic regime and, ultimately, military action to destroy nuclear sites.
"If we can't get enough other countries to come along with us to do that, then we've got to go with regime change by bolstering opposition groups … if all else fails, if the choice is between a nuclear-capable Iran and the use of force, then I think we need to look at the use of force."

[9] Iran-green-revolution[10] Paul Craig Roberts 19 June: The claim is made that Ahmadinejad stole the election, because the outcome was declared too soon after the polls closed for all the votes to have been counted. However, Mousavi declared his victory several hours before the polls closed. This is classic CIA destabilization designed to discredit a contrary outcome.  There is a power struggle among the ayatollahs. Many are aligned against Ahmadinejad because he accuses them of corruption, thus playing to the Iranian countryside where Iranians believe the ayatollahs' lifestyles indicate an excess of power and money. Commentators are "explaining" the Iran elections based on their own illusions, delusions, emotions, and vested interests. Whether or not the poll results predicting Ahmadinejad's win are sound, there is, so far, no evidence beyond surmise that the election was stolen. However, there are credible reports that the CIA has been working for two years to destabilize the Iranian government.

For example, neoconservative Kenneth Timmerman wrote the day before the election that "there’s talk of a ‘green revolution’ in Tehran." How would Timmerman know that unless it was an orchestrated plan? Timmerman goes on to write that "the National Endowment for Democracy has spent millions of dollars promoting ‘color’ revolutions . . . Some of that money appears to have made it into the hands of pro-Mousavi groups, who have ties to non-governmental organizations outside Iran that the National Endowment for Democracy funds." Timmerman’s own neocon Foundation for Democracy is "a private, non-profit organization established in 1995 with grants from the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), to promote democracy and internationally-recognized standards of human rights in Iran."

So, what is going on?
[11] Bilderberger, [12] Trilateral Commissioner and [13] CFR, Henry Kissinger, a High priest of the New World Order, pleads for a regime change from outside in Iran, if the ongoing revolution fails [14] video.

[15] Outside-infiltration

President Bush Jr. started Iranian subversion
[16] Seymour M.Hersh, The New Yorker, 7 July 2008 :  Late last year, Congress agreed to a request from President Bush to fund a major escalation of covert operations against Iran, according to current and former military, intelligence, and congressional sources. For these operations, the President sought up to four hundred million dollars.
Clandestine operations against Iran are not new. United States Special Operations Forces have been conducting cross-border operations from southern Iraq, with Presidential authorization, since last year.
“The Finding was focussed on undermining Iran’s nuclear ambitions and trying to undermine the government through regime change,” a person familiar with its contents said, and involved “working with opposition groups and passing money.” The covert operations  run parallel to those of a secret military task force, now operating in Iran, that is under the control of JSOC.

In recent months, according to the Iranian media, there has been a surge in violence in Iran; it is impossible at this early stage, however, to credit JSOC or C.I.A. activities, or to assess their impact on the Iranian leadership. the Iranians have begun publicly blaming the U.S., Great Britain, and, more recently, the C.I.A. for some incidents. British diplomats have just been expelled. One possible consequence of these operations would be a violent Iranian crackdown on one of the dissident groups, which could give the Bush [17] MOUSAVI-largeAdministration a reason to intervene. Indeed, [18] Obama is “appalled” by this [19] video showing Neda Soltan just before she died. The propagandistic effect of such a video should not be underestimated.

[17] CQ Politics 22 June 2009Three decades ago Mir-Hossein Mousavi was waging a terrorist war on the United States that included bloody attacks on the U.S. embassy and Marine Corps barracks in Beirut.
Mousawi, who has been celebrated in the West for sparking street demonstrations against the Teheran regime since he lost the elections, was directing the overall 1980s terror campaign.
Baer, a former CIA Middle East field officer,  places Mousavi even closer to the Beirut bombings. Baer added: "Mousavi was not only swept up into this delusion but also actively pursued it."

[20] Paul Watson, Prison Planet 23 June 2009: Reza Pahlavi, son of the former Shah of Iran, is positioning himself to become the new US-backed puppet leader of Iran should the current regime be toppled by [21] Reza-pahleviprotests.
It appears that Mousavi is merely a stop gap for the Anglo-American establishment and that his terrorist past will swiftly be used to discredit him and prevent him from assuming
power, leaving the path clear for Pahlavi to step in and allow the New World Order to once again seize control Iran for the first time in 30 years.

[22] The Corbett Open Intelligence Report 23 June, 2009  It's the 2009 presidential election in Iran and opposition leader Mir-Houssein Mousavi declares victory hours before the polls close, insuring that any result to the contrary will be called into question. Western media goes into overdrive, fighting with each other to see who can offer the most hyperbolic denunciation of the vote and President Ahmadenijad's apparent victory (BBC wins by publishing bald-faced lies about the supposed popular uprising which it is later forced to retract). On June 13th, 30000 "tweets" begin to flood Twitter with live updates from Iran, most written in English and provided by a handful of newly-registered users with identical profile photos. The Jerusalem Post writes a story about the Iran Twitter phenomenon a few hours after it starts (and who says Mossad isn't staying up to date with new media?). Now, YouTube is providing a "Breaking News" link at the top of every page linking to the latest footage of the Iranian protests

I[23] Khameneironically, Iran was also the birthplace of the original CIA program for destabilizing a foreign government. Think of it as Destabilization 1.0: It's 1953 and democratically-elected Iranian leader Mohammed Mossadegh is following through on his election promises to nationalize industry for the Iranian people, including the oil industry of Iran which was then controlled by the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company. The CIA is sent into the country to bring an end to Mossadegh's government. They begin a campaign of terror, staging bombings and attacks on Muslim targets in order to blame them on nationalist, secular Mossadegh.  Finally, they back the revolution that brings their favoured puppet, the Shah, into power.

Enter Destabilization 1.1. It starts when the [24] IMF moves in to offer a bribe to a tinpot dictator in a third world country. He gets 10% in exchange for taking out an exorbitant loan for an infrastructure project that the country can't afford. When the country inevitably defaults on the loan payments, the IMF begins to take over, imposing a restructuring program that eventually results in the full scale looting of the country's resources for western business interests. This program, too, was run in country after country, from Jamaica to Myanmar, from Chile to Zimbabwe. The source code for this program was revealed in 2001, however, when former World Bank chief economist [25] Joseph Stiglitz went public about the scam. More detail was added in 2004 by the publication of John Perkin's Confessions of an Economic Hitman, which revealed the extent to which front companies and complicit corporations aided, abetted and facilitated the economic plundering and overthrow of foreign governments.

[26] [27] Iransk-atombombeDestabilization 1.2 involves seemingly disinterested, democracy promoting NGOs with feelgood names like the [28] Open Society Institute, Freedom House ([29] Council on Foreign Relations-organ)  and the National Endowment for Democracy. They fund, train, support and mobilize opposition movements in countries that have been targeted for destabilization, often during elections and usually organized around an identifiable color. These "color revolutions" sprang up in the past decade and have so far successfully destabilized the governments of the Ukraine, Lebanon, Georgia and Kyrgyzstan, among others. These revolutions bear the imprint of billionaire finance oligarch [30] George Soros.

Now we arrive at Destabilization 2.0, really not much more than a slight tweak of Destabilization 1.2. The only thing different is that now Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and other social media are being employed to amplify the effect of (and the impression of) internal protests. Once again, Soros henchman Evgeny Morozov is extolling the virtues of the new Tehran Twitter revolution and the New York Times is writing journalistic hymns to the power of internet new media…when it serves western imperial interests.

The perspectives
[31] The Financial Times 24 June 2009:  Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says he will not bow to pressure. 
In fact, according to
[32] Debkafile 24 June, 2009 Mousavi´s opposition has already been quenched. In the meantime the European Parliament [33] is crying out for reelections and international consequences. “We cannot leave the [34] civil society alone!”
The Wall Street Journal 24 June 2009  Republicans and many Iranian democracy activists have argued in recent days that any U.S. dialogue with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's government in the near term risks legitimizing a regime that's been accused by opposition candidates of stealing the national election and terrorizing peaceful protesters.
Secretary of Defense Robert Gates Tuesday also cast doubts on the prospects for negotiations with Iran's current government.
Russia broke with the West Tuesday and formally recognized Mr. Ahmadinejad's re-election. There's a concern in Washington that Moscow and Beijing could cite Iran's political instability as reasons not to enforce new economic sanctions on Iran. "This is one of the more troubling scenarios going forward," said a senior European official working on Iran.

[36] Global Research 24 June, 2009: The protest movement generated by charges of vote-rigging made by Mir Hossein Mousavi and other losing candidates in Iran’s June 12 election largely disappeared from the streets Monday, but the internal struggle within the Iranian regime continued.

[37] Iran-grøn-revolutionBehind the media’s enthusiasm for the “green revolution” in Iran stands the US government and its intelligence agencies, which have attempted to maintain a low profile while allowing the subservient press to propagandize in support of Washington’s line on the election.The aim of the US is not to overthrow the Islamic Republic nor to foster a flowering of democracy, but rather to effect a change at the top of the regime that would favor American interests.

But  the US-backed effort to promote the “reformers” has apparently stalled.

The protests of the relatively privileged in support of Mousavi could be replaced by a movement of the working class against unemployment and inflation directed against the regime as a whole.

It seems that unless a social revolution ensues in Iran, Ayatollah Khamenei has an even stronger domestic position than before the revolution. However, externally Iran is even more isolated than before. This will certainly make it easier for Benjamin Netanyahu´s case and easier for him to launch an Israeli attack on Iran with the sympathy of the world on the terrorist Mousavi´s side. Probably Mousavi did lose the elections – and probably the riots are instigated by the US on the false argument of “stolen elections.” 
No doubt the US leaders wanted to see the ayatollahs ousted – as Henry Kissinger says. Now their only expediency may be a military attack – as wanted by Bolton, Kissinger and an increasing number of US politicians. Whom do the illuminati have in mind as their puppet: Rafsanjani or Reza Pahlevi?
The future does not seem peaceful in the Middle East.
