Gumshoenews readers are no doubt familiar with General Wesley Clark, of NATO Supreme Allied Command, as quoted in his now infamous interview with Amy Goodman from Democracy Now in 2007.
“This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out 7 countries in 5 years starting with Iraq and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and finishing off with Iran.”
Guess what’s happening in Iran these last few days? A Zerohedge article on January 1, 2018:
“12 Killed in Iran, Security Forces Accused of Opening Fire.” [and rising]
Further into article we read that,
“…the US State Department has issued a formal condemnation of the Iranian government following two days of economic protests centering in a handful of cities, calling the regime ‘a rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, and chaos” while announcing support for protesters’.”
It fits a familiar script which seems to roll out when anyone protests for any reason in a country considered an enemy of the United States.
And this. Iranian State TV said,
“the deaths in the city of Izeh were confirmed by local politician Hedayatollah Khademi… The governor said it [the gunfire] ‘was unlikely to be by police as they were not supposed to open fire‘.”
This headline in the Independent this morning:
“Supreme leader accuses foreign powers of ‘sabotage’, as US applauds ‘courage’ of protesters.”
Iran’s Supreme Leader has blamed country-wide protests on “enemies of Iran” as the death toll from demonstrations has risen to 21.
Where have we seen this modus operandi roll out in recent years? Anyone remember The Maidan, in Ukraine in 2012?
Global Research, Canada featured a recent headline, “Snipers Fired At BOTH Police and Protesters In Ukraine”.
“Everyone started shooting two or three shots at a time. It went on for fifteen, twenty minutes. We had no choice. We were ordered to shoot both on the police and the demonstrators”.
Ordered by whom?
Regime Change in Iran?
Is someone trying overthrow the Iranian Government, again, using the same old tried and true recipe for regime change? Fund a “peaceful protest”, get them onto the streets, (even if it’s only 50 or so provocateurs), prepare some “pro-democracy” slogans in English (for Western consumption), throw a few rocks at the police, burn a few buildings, shoot some ‘peaceful protestors’, blame it on the police, and Voila. REGIME CHANGE initiated.
Kermit (Kim) Roosevelt
Kermit (Kim) Roosevelt had considerable success in the 1950’s when the secular President Mohamed Mossadegh was turfed out in similar fashion by violent protestors (paid agitators?). After he nationalized the Iranian oil reserves, they were then controlled by Anglo Persian Oil (BP).
Pretty much the exact same playbook. Worked like a charm back then in the 50’s. It worked again in Ukraine in 2012. Let’s give it another whirl in 2018.
These Deep State actors are nothing if not persistent and consistent. Where’s Vicki (F..k the E.U.) Nuland when you need her?
General Welsey Clark pretty much told us the playbook of the Cabal back in 2007.
So is this just a continuation of that same playbook?
It sure as hell is starting to look like it!!
As the rock band “The Who” once sang, “We won’t get fooled again”
Let’s not get fooled again!
