After mass protests against the regime, Tehran officials

seem to be looking for scapegoats.

America and Britain are Behind Iran's So-Called Unrest


Are the massive anti-government protests breaking out across Iran a result of U.S. and British activity? That's the explanation being offered by Tehran leaders, whose hold on power appears increasing in doubt. According to this article from Iran's state-run Kayhan newspaper, it all comes down to a desire on the part of the U.S. and U.K. to control Iranian oil and gas.

Let us ask the entire world why there's such a fuss being made about Iran?


Most free-minded people are aware that the pretexts for invading Iraq have turned out to be a pack of lies. Anti-war demonstrators in the U.S. and Britain have routinely held up banners reading: “No Blood for Oil.”


That's because the anti-war camp in those countries has known for quite some time that “weapons of mass destruction” in Iraq and the so-called “war on terror” elsewhere merely served as pretexts for the massive military taking of energy resources outside of U.S.-U.K. corporate control. There's no talk about human rights and the total absence of democracy in oil- and gas- rich Middle East countries that are “allied” to the U.S., just as there's no pressure on any of them to dump plans for obtaining nuclear energy. In fact, even when there are major political issues in such countries, they are quietly and quickly swept under the carpet.


Now, as if by magic, a supposed Muslim bomber trained by al-Qaeda in oil-rich southern Yemen props up and tries - quite unsuccessfully - to blow up an aircraft bound for the U.S. We ask ourselves: Is this the justification, thought up in London and Washington, for the burgeoning U.S. military presence in Yemen? And how long will it be before British troops join their American co-conspirators?


With Iraq under occupation, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates already under political control and Yemen’s oil and gas rich south now steadily being garrisoned by U.S. forces, about half of the world's energy reserves now fall under the U.S.-U.K. control.


The odd country out in the Middle East is Iran, with the world’s third largest oil reserves, and second largest gas reserves. So new pretexts must be thought up to bring Iranian resources under control!



Should they succeed, the United States and Britain would be sitting on the world’s life blood and will have the capacity to blackmail the rest of the planet, including all E.U. nations except Britain, which is already in on the act.


Do Germany and France know that their newfound prominence within the E.U. means nothing if Britain and America control all energy reserves in the Middle East?



A pretext for destabilizing Iran wasn't long in the making. Cockamamie allegations of election fraud backed by rent-a-crowd tactics failed, as massive popular support for the Islamic Republic became clear. So other avenues had to be explored. Failed American and British shock-and-awe tactics after Iran’s presidential election were revised and replaced with a strategy of street war and attrition involving a mixture of rent-a-crowd and misleading public demonstrations.


But the significance of their failure to foment a coup in Iran hasn't been lost on the three major powerhouses of Russia, Japan and China. Energy-hungry Japan and China have picked up on the audacity of the Anglo-American plan. With no natural energy resources of their own, both Japan and China rely heavily on the Middle East for their energy needs, and both shun being underdogs to the militant and globally dictatorial regimes of Britain and America.


Does anyone understand why Russia and China resist sanctions against Iran? Does anyone understand why Zionist-controlled mouthpieces continue to allege that Iran is after nuclear weapons, despite dozens of IAEA reports giving Iran’s civilian nuclear program a clean bill of health?  



The attempted Anglo-American takeover of Iran’s energy resources and thus grabbing complete leverage over their global rivals will prove a bridge too far. We in Iran counter Obama’s “Audacity of Hope” with the audacity of reason. Our revolution, too, was audacious, and we remain vigilant while advising the world against being taken in by the dark forces of Anglo-Americanism, namely, of exploitation and colonialism.


In the words of George Jacques Danton, the great French revolutionary: Il nous faut de l’audace, et encore de l’audace, et toujours de l’audace - "We need audacity, and yet more audacity, and always audacity!"


After the shameful MI6/CIA-orchestrated protests on the Day of Ashura, Obama predictably condemned what he called “Iran's crackdown on protesters.” On Monday, British Foreign Secretary David Miliband also hailed what he called the “great courage” of those who took part in the illegal protests.


Iran's Foreign Ministry has summoned Simon Lawrence Gass, the British Ambassador to Iran, to let the “little man” know what’s what and what’s not!
