New Yorkers came out last night and today by the hundreds to protest President Trump's assassination attack of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani. Trump insisted that he did not intend to start a war, but to stop one. Instead, he has dug himself a deeper hole to climb out of with this attack.
Time and time again, our government has lied to us about Intelligence Reports. They lied about Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq; they lied about chemical weapon attacks in Syria; they lied about operations in Afganistan, and now you have to ask, are they lying about Iranian plans to attack American diplomats. Why did the United States assassinate General Qassem Suleimani? Recent stories have indicated that it was Suleimani that planned the recent attack on the American embassy in Baghdad. He was also blamed for the attack that killed an American contractor (mercenary). A story that ran in The Daily News today suggests that Suleimani had sleeper cells planning attacks in New York City if the U.S. attacked Iran. The NYPD has been reporting Iranian employees of the Iranian Mission doing suspicious surveillances. of landmarks and subway stations.
The answer more than likely, is that they again are lying to some degree. If we accept the propaganda that is force-fed to us from Main Stream Media, it gives the Pentagon the justification needed to bring more wars, more wars for oil, more wars for the rich.
We have no reason, other than oil, to be in the middle-east. If we were running a green economy, the only other reason to be there would be the Petro Dollar. The PetroDollar gives the United States the ability to apply sanctions on countries that do not agree with our bullying tactics. Sanctions, like the ones we have put on Iran to try and force an overthrow of leadership. And the sanctions put on Venezuela to overthrow Nicolás Maduro's administration.
The United States has murdered millions of innocent people in the middle-east. And it is mainly for oil. The world is hating us for what we are, allowing our government to do.
Take to the streets and demand that we stop it now.
