Time to Start Imagineering a Post-Ayatollah Iran

This article looks at the events in Iran, and asks how the US and Israel can help the Iranian people overthrow the Mullahs, to regain their freedom.
A concerted effort on the part of Iranian citizens rioting, backed by cyber warfare, American air-power, and Israeli counterintelligence operations, would succeed in taking down the brutal Iranian regime. The hour of truth is now. It's time to start imagineering a post-ayatollah Iran.

Over the years, I've written about Jewish indigenous rights to the Land of Israel, and how Israeli foreign policy should support the non-Arab/Muslim indigenous minorities throughout the Middle East and North Africa - such as the Kurds - and roll-back the 7th century Arab/Muslim imperialist conquest of the region. To help create a New Middle East.

Now, because the Iranian people are voting in the streets, it's time for it's corollary, a post-ayatollah democratic Iran. Something that would greatly benefit the Iranian people, America, Israel, the West in general, and all the peoples of the region. And, disengage Iran from North Korea; George W. Bush's "Axis of Evil." See my "North Korea: The Israeli Connection" to better understand their relationship.

The last couple times there were large protests against the government in Iran in 2009-2010 and again in 2011-2012, the Obama administration wasted its opportunity to help liberate the Iranian people from the mullahs, and put the nuclear facilities in the hands of level-headed people.

Judith Miller, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and adjunct fellow of the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, in a recent interview stated, "...that might have happened in 2009 if Pres. Obama had lent any support. Pres. Trump is now in this. I'm hoping the Iranian people get rid of this regime...this is the most serious set of protests since 1979."

Former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under Bush and Obama agrees, Retired Adm. Mike Mullen, wants the Trump administration to not make the same mistakes as the Obama administration, and fully back protesters in Iran.

Reza Pahlavi - Crown Prince of Iran and son of the late Shah - see's the historic opportunity and has called on the people of Iran to participate in acts of civil disobedience, similar to Lech Walesa/Poland, Nelson Mandela/South Africa, and what occurred during the fall of the Soviet Union and Berlin Wall.

Alireza Jafarzadeh, an active dissident against the Iranian government, formerly the chief congressional liaison and public spokesperson for the US office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, and best known for revealing the existence of clandestine nuclear facilities in Iran in 2002, stated that, "riots have broken out in over 80 cities throughout Iran."

In a recent interview, Jafarzadeh explained that the riots started because of the economic situation, and accusations of corruption against the regime, and quickly morphed into an anti-Khamenei, anti-Rouhani, anti-regime movement. He stated, "people see the money that came from America, from Obama's Iran deal, that the regime had promised would help improve people's economic situations, going instead, to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, to Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Bahrain, Gaza and Lebanon."

Jafarzadeh said the Iranian people do not support the foreign interventions and terrorism that the government has been involved in. He claimed that, "The situation now is more serious than in 2009, because, leaders of the regime are divided themselves." He called on the West to designate the leaders of the regime as, "major violators of Human Rights," and weaken the regime further by applying new sanctions to it.

The Trump administration can do a lot to bring about regime change in Iran, and they shouldn't hesitate to take advantage of this G-d given window of opportunity.

"Big protests in Iran," Trump tweeted. "The people are finally getting wise as to how their money and wealth is being stolen and squandered on terrorism. Looks like they will not take it any longer. The USA is watching very closely for human rights violations!"

And then Trump tweeted, "Iran is failing at every level despite the terrible deal made with them by the Obama Administration. The great Iranian people have been repressed for many years. They are hungry for food & for freedom. Along with human rights, the wealth of Iran is being looted. TIME FOR CHANGE!"

Israeli PM Netanyahu echoed Trump's sentiments in a video posted to his Facebook page saying, "Brave Iranians are pouring into the streets. They seek freedom. They seek justice. They seek the basic liberties that have been denied them for decades. Iran's cruel regime wastes tens of billions of dollars spreading hate," in the region. "This money could have built schools and hospitals." Netanyahu continued, "This regime tries desperately to sow hate between us. But they won't succeed. And when this regime finally falls, and one day it will, Iranians and Israelis will be great friends once again," (as before the 1979 Islamic Revolution).

US Vice President Mike Pence also tweeted support for the protesters, saying "We will not let them down."

But, 'vicious' tweets and Facebook videos won't do it. In his recent national security speech Trump said, "To counter Iran and block its path to a nuclear weapon, I sanctioned the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps for its support of terrorism, and I declined to certify the Iran Deal to Congress." With Iranians now rioting in the streets, America must step-up to the plate and commit itself to absolute victory in Iran, using it's massive firepower, for the good of the world.

As Trump said, "A nation that is not prepared to win a war is a nation not capable of preventing a war."

Open US support for the Democratic Revolution in Iran, the protesters, backed by American air-cover to prevent Iranian security from mowing them down, would go a long way. Add to that, missile strikes against selected command-and-control systems, nuclear facilities, government media outlets, and other selected infrastructure, and you have a lethal combination, to empower the Iranian people to overthrow their ayatollahs.

Israel's contribution can be significant too. Remember Stuxnet, the malicious computer worm - uncovered in 2010 by Kaspersky Lab - it was responsible for causing substantial damage to Iran's nuclear program up to that point. The worm was believed to have been a jointly built American/Israeli cyberweapon. Israel is one of the acknowledged world leaders in cyber warfare.

And, according to Ronen Bergman, senior correspondent for military and intelligence affairs for Yedioth Ahronoth, Israel's Mossad, has been carrying out counterintelligence operations for some time in Iran, including sabotage and the assassination of nuclear scientists and others, involved in Iran's nuclear program. Bergman in the past justified the operations, citing former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who regularly said that Israel should be wiped off the face of the earth. Ayatollah Khamenei and others continue in his footsteps.

Bergman said, refering to Meir Degan, the former chief of the Mossad, "... he hung a photograph behind him, behind the chair of the chief of Mossad, And in that photograph you see - an ultra-orthodox Jew - long beard, standing on his knees with his hands up in the air, and two Gestapo soldiers standing beside him with guns pointed at him. One of them is smiling...Degan used to say to his people and the people coming to visit him from CIA, NSA, etc, 'Look at this guy in the picture. This is my grandfather just seconds before he was killed by the SS,' we are here to prevent this from happening again.'"

So, one can understand Israel's high motivation to bring down the mullah regime in Iran.

Supporting the creation of a pro-western independent Kurdistan bordering Iran, as a bulwark to help prevent a pro-Iranian Shiite Crescent, from Iran through Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon, to the Mediterranean, should be of immediate interest to policy makers in America, Israel, the Sunni Arab Coalition, and the West. So too, should they actively resist, Iranian penetration of neighboring states, support for international terrorism, and the development of nuclear weapons.

Better yet, it's time to start imagineering a post-ayatollah Iran. A democratic Iran, denuclearized, and welcomed back into the family of civilized nations, good to its citizens, and at peace with its neighbors. The hour of truth is now, enough poli-talk, it's time to act!

Time to Start Imagineering a Post-Oligarch America 03.Jan.2018 11:47

This article looks at the events in the USA, and asks how the Russia and China can help the American people overthrow the Oligarchs, to regain their freedom.

A concerted effort on the part of American citizens rioting, backed by cyber warfare, Russian air-power, and Iranian counterintelligence operations, would succeed in taking down the brutal United States regime. The hour of truth is now. It's time to start imagineering a post-CIA America.

Over the years, I've written about First Nation's indigenous rights to the Land of America, and how Iranian foreign policy should support the non-Settler indigenous minorities throughout America - such as the Lakota - and roll-back the European imperialist conquest of the region. To help create a New America.

Now, because the American people are voting in the streets by occupying, it's time for it's corollary, a post-CIA democratic America. Something that would greatly benefit the American people, Mexico, and all the peoples of the earth. And, disengage America from Israel; George W. Bush's "Axis of Evil." See my "Israel: The German Connection" to better understand their relationship.

The last couple times there were large protests against the government in America during the Vietnam War, the Johnson administration wasted its opportunity to help liberate the American people from the Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex, and put the tax payer's hard-earned money in the hands of level-headed people. Instead the police beat the protesters down with big truncheons and tear gas.

Judith Miller, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and adjunct fellow of the Manhattan Institute [*] for Policy Research, in a recent interview stated, "...that might have happened in 2009 if Pres. Obama had lent any support. Pres. Trump is now in this. I'm hoping the Iranian people get rid of this regime...this is the most serious set of protests since 1979."

The Manhattan Institute for Public Policy Research is a neoconservative think tank founded in 1978 by William Casey, later to become Reagan's CIA director. David Frum, who coined the Axis of Evil term, came to the Bush administration from the Manhattan Institute in 2001. Several neocon icons such as William Kristol are on their board of trustees. The Institute publishes the quarterly City Journal.

The Manhattan Institute was a favorite source used by Dubya's team during his 2000 presidential campaign. Many of Bush's proposals floated during the 2000 presidential debates came from the Manhattan Institute.

Former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under Bush and Obama agrees, Retired Adm. Mike Mullen, wants the Trump administration to not make the same mistakes as the Obama administration, and fully back the Occupy movement.

Reza Pahlavi - Crown Prince of Iran [*] and son of the late Shah - see's the historic opportunity and has called on the people of Iran to participate in acts of civil disobedience, similar to Lech Walesa/Poland, Nelson Mandela/South Africa, and what occurred during the fall of the Soviet Union and Berlin Wall.

* --/ "Reza Pahlavi - Crown Prince of Iran" is the son of the monstrous former Shah (King) of Iran. /--

Alireza Jafarzadeh, an active dissident against the Iranian government, formerly the chief congressional liaison and public spokesperson for the US office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, and best known for revealing the existence of clandestine nuclear facilities in Iran in 2002, stated that, "riots have broken out in over 80 cities throughout Iran." [*]

*--/ These "riots" are only a few young men, but are Photoshopped by the CIA media cartel to look big, just as they doctored photos of massive American protests to look small. /--

In a recent interview, Jafarzadeh [he must be very important] explained that the riots started because of the economic situation, and accusations of corruption against the regime, and quickly morphed into an anti-Khamenei, anti-Rouhani, anti-regime movement [with a lot of "help from someone"]. He stated, "people see the money that came from America, from Obama's Iran deal, that the regime had promised would help improve people's economic situations, going instead, to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, to Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Bahrain, Gaza and Lebanon."

--/ Thousands of little children in Yemen are dying of cholera and starvation because the Americans and Saudis have blockaded food shipments. /--

Jafarzadeh said the Iranian people do not support the foreign interventions and terrorism that the government has been involved in [They probably do not support the brutal snowstorms either]. He claimed that, "The situation now is more serious than in 2009, because, leaders of the regime are divided themselves." He called on the West to designate the leaders of the regime as, "major violators of Human Rights," and weaken the regime further by applying new sanctions to it. [The new sanctions will really help their economy?]

The Russians can do a lot to bring about regime change in America, and they shouldn't hesitate to take advantage of this G-d given window of opportunity. [Orthodox, hey.]

"Big protests in Iran," Trump tweeted. "The people are finally getting wise as to how their money and wealth is being stolen and squandered on terrorism. Looks like they will not take it any longer. The USA is watching very closely for human rights violations!" [We don't violate human rights in America, the cops just shoot kids in the back. Americans are too afraid to protest.]

And then Trump tweeted, "America is failing at every level despite the terrible deal made with them by the Obama Administration. The great American people have been repressed for many years. They are hungry for food & for freedom. Along with human rights, the wealth of America is being looted. TIME FOR CHANGE!" [Indeed.]

Israeli PM Netanyahu echoed Trump's sentiments in a video posted to his Facebook page saying, "Brave Israelis are pouring into the streets. They seek freedom. They seek justice. They seek the basic liberties that have been denied them for decades. Israel's cruel regime wastes tens of billions of dollars spreading hate," in the region. "This money could have built schools and hospitals." Netanyahu continued, "This regime tries desperately to sow hate between us. But they won't succeed. And when this regime finally falls, and one day it will, most Israelis will move to Iran because it is not a giant slum, and Jews are treated much better there.

US Vice President Mike Pence also tweeted support for the Occupy protesters, saying "We will not let them down."

But, 'vicious' tweets and Facebook videos won't do it. In his recent national security speech Trump said, "To counter America and block its path to a nuclear weapon, I sanctioned the Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex for its support of terrorism, and I declined to certify the F-35 Deal to Congress." With Americans now occupying the streets, America must step-up to the plate and commit itself to absolute victory on Wall Street, using it's massive firepower, for the good of the world.

As Trump said, "A nation that is not prepared to win a war is a nation not capable of preventing a war." [No: a nation that is not prepared to prevent a war is not capable of winning a war -- since everybody would die.]

Open US support for the Democratic Revolution in America, the protesters, backed by American air-cover to prevent the SWAT teams from mowing them down, would go a long way. Add to that, missile strikes against selected command-and-control systems, nuclear facilities, government media outlets, and other selected infrastructure, and you have a lethal combination, to empower the American people to overthrow their Oligarchs.

Israel's contribution can be significant too. Remember Stuxnet, the malicious computer worm - uncovered in 2010 by Kaspersky Lab - it was responsible for causing substantial damage to Iran's nuclear program up to that point. The worm was believed to have been a jointly built American/Israeli cyberweapon. Israel is one of the acknowledged world leaders in cyber warfare. [Yeah. Get Windows 10 and "Intel" chips.]

And, according to Ronen Bergman, senior correspondent for military and intelligence affairs for Yedioth Ahronoth, Israel's Mossad [loved by all], has been carrying out counterintelligence operations for some time in Iran, including sabotage and the assassination of nuclear scientists and others, involved in Iran's nuclear program. Bergman in the past justified the operations, citing former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who regularly said that Israel should be wiped off the face of the earth. [This was simply a well-known diabolical mistranslation from the Persian] Ayatollah Khamenei and others continue in his footsteps.

Bergman [the corespondent for the CIA/Mossad] said, referring to Meir Degan, the former chief of the Mossad, "... he hung a photograph behind him, behind the chair of the chief of Mossad, And in that photograph you see - an ultra-orthodox Jew - long beard, standing on his knees with his hands up in the air, and two Gestapo soldiers standing beside him with guns pointed at him. One of them is smiling...Degan used to say to his people and the people coming to visit him from CIA, NSA, etc, 'Look at this guy in the picture. This is my grandfather just seconds before he was killed by the SS,' we are here to prevent this from happening again.'" [They don't really care about their "citizens" -- It's all about those $billions.]

So, one can understand Israel's high motivation to suck America dry.

Supporting the creation of a pro-Mexican wall bordering America, as a bulwark to help prevent creeping U.S. decadence and CIA drug purchases, from California to Texas, should be of immediate interest to policy makers in Mexico. So too, should they actively resist U.S. penetration of neighboring states, support for international terrorism, and the further development of nuclear weapons.

Better yet, it's time to start imagineering a post-two-party America. A democratic America, denuclearized, and welcomed back into the family of civilized nations, good to its citizens, and at peace with its neighbors. The hour of truth is now, enough poli-talk, it's time to act!
