So I’ve been reading up, doing my research so to speak.
I’ve noticed that there have been threads here and on a few other sites I visit with some excellent contributions but no real attempt at joining all the dots together.
I’m no expert in this sort of thing but I have my opinions.
Iran want a conflict… No two ways about that and I don’t think this is something they have decided on in the spur of the moment. I think it has been a planned mission and an effort that has spanned at least ten years. If I had enough time I could probably search the net for articles which would back up that claim and maybe even further back. It’s much easier in hindsight to see what a country was up to.
Iran have big friends, namely Russia and Putin isn’t exactly Santa… Russia aren’t the USSR anymore but they’re not THAT different. They still have a massive stock pile of nuclear weapons and are already talking about using them if anyone touches Iran. Iran are also talking about using whatever force is necessary to ‘defend their interests’. Since they currently only have their first nuke - at least to our knowledge, they must feel confident that Russia are behind them 100%.
Russias interest in Iran is obviously purely business. They want them for the oil and even though it may be a very fickle relationship, it’s a very powerful one.
Again Russia is heavily invested in Syria who also have very good ties with Iran.
Iran want to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth and this is not an understatement. Their propaganda has been so powerful that they have support of a large part of their population. Their citizens hate Israel, America, England etc.
I honestly feel the way things are shaping up that they will attack Israel but not until they feel completely ready to do so. Pre-emptive strike by Israel will cause nothing but war and I think this is why they haven’t already. If Israel attack first, America may pull their support for them in fear of being branded as the aggressors. If Israel attack first Russia will jump in to defend Iran.
Syria is a similar situation. No one is doing anything while mass genocide is going on because it’s a powder keg.
If these nations are in cahoots beyond what we can even imagine, who is to say that Syria isn’t just a giant lure. I know that sounds extremely conspiracy-ish but how do we know? There doesn’t seem to be that much sense in Syrias continued genocide of it’s peoples, especially when for all appearances their leader looks as though he is capable of 2+2 = 4.
If these operations have been going on for longer than a decade who knows how far Iran has influenced world events. They could have been influencing/funding terrorist cells such as Al Qaeda.
Deception and bombings seem to be something Iran specialise in. Are we really to believe that the suicide bombings in Israel a Jewish Democracy isn’t being caused directly by the anti-semetic propaganda coming from Iran or not directly ordered from above, through the perhaps funded terrorist cells and done like that?
I don’t know my thoughts are kind of muddled and a little crazy in places, but this is a serious problem and I’m not sure how we are going to sort out this situation.
