Biden Regime Escalates War on Iran by Other Means
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Hardline interventionists in charge of Biden’s foreign policy have no intention to normalize relations with China, Russia, Iran and other nations free from US control.
Despite deceptive claims otherwise, they oppose returning to the landmark JCPOA nuclear deal as unanimously adopted by Security Council Res. 2231 — making it binding international and US constitutional law.
Instead, state-approved talking points are featured in establishment media reports to maintain a steady propaganda drumbeat of fake news about all US invented adversaries and enemies.
Below is the latest anti-Iran rubbish from AP News, saying the following:
So-called (unidentified) intelligence sources claim that Iran threatens to attack a US army base in the military district of the nation’s capital and the army’s vice chief of staff.
AP News: Alleged “communications intercepted by the National Security Agency in January showed that Iran’s Revolutionary Guard discussed mounting ‘USS Cole-style attacks’ against the army post (sic), referring to the October 2000 suicide attack in which a small boat pulled up alongside the Navy destroyer in the Yemeni port of Aden and exploded, killing 17 sailors.”
Iran had nothing to do with the incident.
Blamed on US-supported al-Qaeda at the time, it may have been a Pentagon/CIA staged false flag — wanting Iran and/or Lebanon’s Hezbollah blamed for what they had nothing to do with.
According AP News, so-called US “intelligence also (claimed that Iran) threat(ed) to kill Gen. Joseph M. Martin (sic) and plans to infiltrate and surveil the installation (sic), according to the officials, who were not authorized to publicly discuss national security matters and spoke on condition of anonymity. The…post…is Martin’s official residence.”
AP added that the US army “offered only vague information about threats to the installation” — nothing specific about an invented Iranian threat that doesn’t exist.
Not a shred of credible evidence suggests that the Islamic Republic was ever responsible for belligerent incidents against other nations — what the US, NATO, Israel, and their imperial partners do regularly.
According to US military district of Washington’s commander General Omar Jones, the only so-called security threat to the installation and its staff was from a harmless swimmer who came ashore on the base and was taken into custody.
At the time, DC congressional Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton said the following:
“When it comes to swimmers, I’m sure that must be rare.” Did he know where he was?”
“Maybe he was just swimming and (accidentally) found his way to your shore,” adding:
The Pentagon provided her with “no information about alleged security threats to Fort McNair or its personnel.”
“I’ve seen no evidence of a credible threat” to the installation, she stressed.
“I have a security clearance. And they have yet to show me any classified evidence” of a threat to the base.
There is none — not by Iran or any other source.
Separately last Friday, Russia’s Sergey Lavrov slammed the US for abandoning the JCPOA, adding:
Not only did Washington flagrantly breach binding international law, but its dominance hardliners prohibit “all other countries from complying with UN Security Council” Res. 2231.
Its hostile actions show contempt for the rule of law and its “complete inability to negotiate” and engage with other nations in good faith.
Biden regime hardliners continue the hostile agenda of their predecessors.
They have no intention of changing their wicked way against Iran, China, Russia, and other nations they want transformed into US vassal states.
A Final Comment
EU foreign policy chief Joseph Borrell is a US imperial tool.
Defying his anti-Iran actions in cahoots with Washington and E 3 countries, he turned truth on its head with the following remark:
“As the current coordinator of the JCPOA, I will continue to work with all remaining parties to the deal, as well as with the entire international community.”
“We will do everything possible to preserve what we achieved five years ago, and to ensure that the deal remains effective.”
His actions have been polar opposite, including by falsely blaming Iran for breaches of international law — committed by the US and colonized Britain, France and Germany.
