The US Wants to Bring Back the Shah of Iran
http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-us-wants-to-bring-back-the-shah-of-iran/5662590





'The US had a great deal going from 1953 to 1979 with the Shah of Iran. For 25 years Iran was a cornerstone of the US usurping the British Empire in the Middle East, following World War Two. Iran was a base for projecting US power in the region, and strategically it bordered the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

During the early 20th century the British Empire had full control of Iran’s oil industry, and was paying Iran a flat fee for every barrel of oil it extracted. A rough calculation of Iran’s royalties is between 8% to 16% of the profits, but Iran was never allowed to look at the financial books.
  • Spam_A Spam_B Prior to the CIA-led 1953 overthrow of the democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh, Iran demanded 50% of the profits and control of their oil industry. That was not unreasonable, but Iran was willing to negotiate. At the time, the US oil companies had a 50/50 profit sharing agreement with Saudi Arabia.

    The British refused any negotiated settlement. It was then that the Iranian parliament led by Mossadegh voted to nationalized Iran’s oil industry. The British responded with a naval blockade, and began plotting to overthrow Mossadegh and the parliament. As the Prime Minister, Mossadegh held the most political power in Iran because the people were behind him. The Shah of Iran was mostly a figurehead, at the time.





  • President Harry Truman was adamantly against British style colonialism and sided with Iran, which infuriated the U.K. When President Dwight D. Eisenhower took office in 1953, he sided with the British. Eisenhower and Churchill plotted a coup d’état to overthrow Mossadegh. The frightened Shah, who was in on the plot, fled from Iran before the coup attempt just in case anything went wrong. The first attempt did fail. A second daring CIA-led coup succeeded and the US reinstalled Mohammad Reza Pahlavi as the Shah of Iran, with dictatorial power.

    By its intervention, however, the US broke the British Empire’s monopoly on Iran’s oil. That was part of the US’ calculous. After the coup, US oil companies got 40% of Iran’s oil industry, 14% went to Royal Dutch-Shell, 6 % went to the French Petroleum Company, and the British oil company kept 40%. In addition, Iran got its 50/50 share of the net profits that it wanted in the first place. The US immediately sent financial aid to prop up the Shah, and to bolster Iran’s weakened economy from the British blockade.

    If the British had initially been flexible, renegotiated a 50/50 oil deal with Prime Minister Mossadegh, then it would have made a coup less likely. Iran was developing a secular democratic government. It might have become a model for other post-colonial countries in the Middle East. Democracy and self-determination are what the US said its world mission was going back to President Woodrow Wilson in 1918:'

Stuxnet virus attack details emerge as Israel eases cyber weapons sale restrictions (See The Trigger)






'The Stuxnet virus that decimated Iran’s nuclear program was introduced by a Dutch mole working with the CIA and Mossad, intelligence sources claimed, as Israel is shopping its cyber weapons to anyone with cash to buy.

An Iranian engineer was recruited by the Dutch intelligence agency AIVD, acting under the direction of the CIA and Mossad, to infect some 2,000 Iranian nuclear centrifuges with the catastrophic Stuxnet virus, which set that country’s nuclear program back years, according to intelligence sources who spoke to Yahoo News.

The mole, who posed as a mechanic, reportedly provided data that was critical to helping the virus’ developers shape their code to specifically target the systems at the Natanz plant where it was ultimately unleashed, then helped get the virus onto the plant computers using a flash drive. One of the sources called him “the most important way of getting the virus into Natanz.

While the US and Israel were the primary players behind the initiative, designed to cripple but not destroy Iran’s nuclear program in order to force it to the negotiating table, the Netherlands, Germany, and one other country (believed to be France) were also allegedly involved, motivated by Israel’s insistence that Iran was developing a nuclear bomb. In addition to supplying the agent, the Dutch contributed information about the centrifuges, which were based on designs stolen from a Dutch company in the 1970s by a Pakistani scientist.'

White House: US will not drop Iran sanctions, Trump tells Macron
http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/09/06/605484/Trump-US-will-not-drop-Iran-sanctions





'US President Donald Trump has informed French President Emmanuel Macron that the United States will not lift economic sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran, according to the White House.

The two presidents also agreed it was essential to “curb Iran's actions threatening freedom of navigation and commerce in the Persian Gulf,” the White House claimed in a statement issued late Thursday.

“President Trump reiterated that dropping sanctions against Iran is not going to happen at this time,” the statement said.

Macron has sought to arrange a meeting between Trump and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in order to end the tensions between the US and Iran since Trump’s withdrawal from the nuclear agreement, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

During a joint press conference with Trump last week, Macron said he hoped a meeting between the presidents of Iran and the United States would take place "in the next few weeks."

“I hope [the meeting between Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Trump] could take place in the next few weeks,” the French president said, adding, "Nothing is for sure, things are eminently fragile."'

Saudi oil attacks: US says intelligence shows Iran involved






'The United States has issued satellite images and cited intelligence to back its allegation Iran was behind attacks on major Saudi oil facilities.

Iran denies involvement in Saturday's air attacks, which were claimed by Iran-aligned Houthi rebels in Yemen.

But unnamed US officials speaking to US and international media say the direction and extent of the attacks cast doubt on Houthi involvement.

The incident has cut global oil supplies by 5% and prices have soared.

What is the US saying?
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iran at the weekend, without providing any evidence, prompting Tehran to accuse Washington of deceit.

Tweeting on Sunday, President Donald Trump stopped short of directly accusing Iran, but suggested possible military action once the perpetrator was known.'

How Holes in the Burning Saudi Oil Fields Narrative Could Draw the US Into a War With Iran






'Tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran are escalating to new heights, drawing the United States into a confrontation with the Islamic Republic after a sophisticated attack targeted Saudi Arabia’s Aramco oil facility — the largest oil processing facility in the world — knocking out half of the country’s oil capacity, or more than <a href="https://www.cnn.com/middleeast/live-news/saudi-oil-attack-dle-intl/index.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener">5 million barrels a day[/url], and leaving the oil fields in flames.

The attack was nothing the Kingdom had seen before or expected: According to U.S. and Saudi intel, <a href="https://www.wsj.com/articles/saudi-arabia-increasingly-confident-iran-launched-oil-attack-11568733861" target="_blank" rel="noopener">18 drones and seven cruise missiles[/url] were launched and went undetected by both American and Saudi radar systems. The weaponry even went unnoticed by the U.S. military base nearby, the Prince Sultan Airbase, which is guarded by an American Patriot missile defense system and over 500 U.S. military personnel.

You better believe an attack at this level targeting a crossroad for global oil supplies did more than ruffle a few feathers.

Panic not only struck the Kingdom and the international economy, where oil prices spiked 19 percent — <a href="https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/09/saudi-oil-attacks-latest-updates-190916102800973.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener">the highest ever recorded one-day increase[/url] — but U.S. and Saudi politicians, as well as a chorus of mainstream pundits, began to beat the drums of war targeting an old foe: Iran.

Saudi and U.S. military analysts have presented <a href="https://www.cnbc.com/2019/09/17/satellite-photos-show-extent-of-damage-to-saudi-aramco-plants.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener">satellite images [/url]of where the missiles landed in the oil fields, purporting to show that the drones/missiles came from the direction of Iran. However, some experts are already countering these claims, pointing out that the images show impact points that are indeed west-northwest, which is the opposite direction of Iran.

Despite providing no substantial evidence and citing so-called anonymous intelligence — you know, the same intelligence that, to justify war with Iraq, claimed Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and that Saddam was working with al-Qaeda — the corporate media has amplified and endorsed the Saudi and Trump administration’s claims to manufacture consent for an all-out war with Iran.

Trump Regime/Media Mythology About 1979 Takeover of US Embassy in Iran

Trump Regime/Media Mythology About 1979 Takeover of US Embassy in Iran






A same-day article discusses 40th anniversary of the nonviolent takeover of the US embassy in Tehran on November 4, 1979 by Iranian students.

February 11 marked the 40th anniversary of Iran’s 1979 revolution — ending a generation of fascist tyranny under US-installed puppet Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi.

The embassy takeover was nonviolent, ridding the country of a “den of espionage,” 52 staff members held for 444 days, none mistreated, 14 US women and African Americans at the time released unharmed.

To this day, the official narrative echoed by establishment media turns truth on its head about events at the time.

A spokesperson for Iranophobe/neocon hardliner Pompeo said he’ll “host (a Monday) event honoring the service and sacrifice (sic) of the former hostages on the 40th anniversary of the US Embassy takeover in Tehran,” adding:

“This event commemorates the bravery that all former hostages and their families have shown during unimaginable circumstances (sic).” <span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>

“We look forward to the day when we can again safely send US diplomats to Tehran (sic). (T)his anniversary serves as a reminder of the long history of malign behavior by (Iran) and the danger it has posed to the United States and the world over the past 40 years (sic).”

Fact: The above statement ignored a generation of US installed fascist tyranny in Iran — from the CIA’s first ever coup in 1953 to Iranian liberation from US repressive control and exploitation in 1979.

Fact: There was nothing “brave” about well-treated US captives, nothing violent about the embassy’s takeover.

Fact: CIA spies, masquerading as “diplomats,” are unwanted in Iran.

Fact: “Malign” describes US behavior worldwide, not how the Islamic Republic operates.

The NYT published an AP News report about the November 4, 1979 embassy takeover in Tehran, saying:

Iranian “(l)awmakers…approv(ed) the outline of a bill that would include anti-American teachings in school textbooks.”

The measure calls for truth-telling about US imperial lawlessness, wanting Iranian children and youths aware of what’s suppressed in the West.

AP News: “What exactly led to the 1979 takeover of the embassy was obscure at the time to Americans who for months could only watch…TV newscasts showed Iranian protests at the embassy.”

Fact: Establishment media reported the falsified official narrative about what happened and why. To this day, the vast majority of Americans know nothing about the root cause of the Iranian revolution or why the US embassy was taken over.

The neocon/CIA house organ Washington Post reported nothing about the US den of espionage infested with Langley spies, masquerading as its embassy in Tehran.

WaPo quoted Iranophobe White House envoy for regime change in Iran Brian Hook disinformation, saying:

“The decision to jail our diplomats has cast a 40-year shadow over our relations with the regime, which still takes innocent Americans hostage and uses them for political gain (sic).”

Fact: No one was “jail(ed),” no one mistreated, no “innocent Americans (held) hostage and use(d) for political gain” — a longstanding US specialty at home and abroad, including countless numbers of political prisoners, others held captive in torture prisons.

WaPo: “Over the years, a succession of American and Iranian presidents took tentative steps to put relations on a better footing. Usually their efforts came to nothing, further entrenching the mutual mistrust.”

US duplicity and betrayal bears full responsibility, what WaPo and other establishment media never explain.

Reinvented WSJ history said “Iranian conservatives (sic) on Monday celebrate the 40th anniversary of an event that has poisoned US-Iran relations, and introduced what has become a frequent Iranian tactic: detaining foreigners as political pawns (sic),” adding:

“Since a mob of Iranian students (sic) during the 1979 Islamic Revolution climbed the walls of the American Embassy in Tehran and took 52 diplomats hostage for 444 days, Iran has routinely imprisoned foreigners, including Americans (sic).”

What the Journal called a “mob” was comprised of nonviolent, calm, orderly youths, harming no one.

Detaining individuals worldwide as “political pawns” is longstanding US practice, part of what the scourge of imperial viciousness is all about.

US/Iranian relations are soured because bipartisan hardliners in Washington want Islamic Republic sovereignty eliminated, control over the country regained, its resources looted, its people exploited.

It’s how the US mistreats all sovereign independent nations, wanting them colonized and controlled as vassal states, preemptive wars and economic terrorism its favored strategies.

That’s what the scourge of US imperialism is all about — humanity’s greatest threat.
