War with Iran is inevitable at this stage and we’re seeing a lot of correlations that led to the Iraq War back in 2003. I’m sure some of you remember three huge factors that really stood out that led to the second US invasion of Iraq.

While I was only in the fifth and sixth grades at the time, I clearly remember our teachers telling us about:

1) Iraq’s supposed possessions of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs).

2) Lies of terrorist training camps all around us which is much like we see these days anytime ISIS takes responsibility for a global attack.

3) The Anthrax scare.

Each of these events occurred shortly after 9/11 between September 18th, 2001, and the beginning stages of the war on March 20th, 2003.

Iranian Events to Keep an Eye On

Now, let’s take a look at what Iran has been accused of who had even verbally taken responsibility for.

1) The attack on two oil tankards in the Gulf of Oman, in which the Japanese disputed the US’ claim that the ship was hit by a torpedo. Instead, the Japanese stated a missile impaled the ship.

2) The downing of a US drone flying either in Iranian waters or International, depending on which version of the story one has heard and to this day, it can’t be confirmed whether the US is telling the truth or Iran is telling the truth. However, Iran did take responsibility for the downing of the drone and as of June 24th warned the US that it will shoot down more drones if they come close to Iranian waters.

Again, we really can’t confirm either side of the story, but I’m more likely in the Iran-crowd here simply because I believe if Iran wanted to lie about this, they would’ve blamed someone else, such as the notorious MEK of responsibility, so they get a few points here.

Justifiable downing?

I can make the case that it is, simply because if another country such as Cuba, North Korea, Iran, Russia, China, or anyone the US is on rocky terms with would’ve shot a drone of theirs down if it came anywhere close to our waters in the Atlantic, Pacific, or the Gulf of Mexico.

Again, National Security Advisor John Bolton would’ve fired a missile to shoot down an Iranian drone himself if it as much as left Iranian mainland.

 

Who’s the Real Threat?

Our history classes in public school, or at least my history classes between the years 2003 and 2009 spoke of one major event that “proved” Iran is and has always been a threat to US national security, and that is the 1979 Iranian Revolution which I’m sure some of you recall fifty-two US hostages were held at the US embassy in Tehran for 444 days.

However, many of our government schools tend to “forget” to tell us about an event that occurred twenty-six years earlier when the CIA and British MI6 overthrew the democratically elected Iranian government and reinstituted the brutal Shah.

If you haven’t learned about the US-UK-led coup against the Iranian government in 1953, this might pique your interest and even influence your opinion on Iran.

Here’s the original story.

The 1953 coup, known as Operation Ajax, was primarily (you guessed it) about oil. For decades, the West controlled the region’s oil wealth. Firms like Arabian-American Oil, now known as Saudi Aramco, a state-owned enterprise headquartered in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia and Anglo-Iranian Oil, which has morphed into British Petroleum, held an iron claw on Iranian oil fields.

The US and Saudi Arabia would reach an agreement to split oil revenues evenly in 1950 due to Saudi pressure, Iran sought to do the same with the UK, only the UK refused to cooperate with Tehran.

As a result, elected leader Mohamed Mossadegh nationalized Iran’s oil industry, leading to preliminary talks with the US to overthrow Mossadegh and reinstitute Iran’s Shah.

The coup was first attempted on August 15th, 1953, but Mossadegh deflected the attempt and arrested dozens of Iranian co-conspirators, leading to the CIA to call off the believed-to-be failed coup.

In a cable that was declassified in 2017, a CIA statement read, “Operation has been tried and failed and we should not participate in any operation against Mossadegh which could be traced back to the US.”

However, the US’ top officer in Iran, Kermit Roosevelt, decided to ignore this statement that was sent by cable.

According to Malcolm Byrne, director of the US-Iranian Relations Project, Roosevelt stated, “No-we’re not done here.”

On August 19th, with “rented” crowds the CIA reportedly arranged (you will see these often mentioned in Lord of Columbia) the coup succeeded. Mossadegh was jailed and the Western-backed puppet Monarchy led by the Shah returned.

Despite this, BP still faced nationalist push back in Iran and the British were eventually forced to split even profits with Iran.

One man I want you all to remember in this coup is someone by the name of Allen Dulles, whose name will actually pop up later on in another article of mine and his involvement in a particular Rothschild-backed company that also involves the 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump, so stay tuned for that.

1979 Iranian Revolution

One aspect from the 1953 Operation Ajax is certain. The Western-backed policies of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi were seen as brutal, corrupt, and illegitimate.

The Shah’s criticisms ranged from his preference of favoring Western nations like the US and Britain, as well as the cracking down of dissenters by his own secret police.

Following a boom-bust cycle of economic prosperity to hardship in 1977 where mass inflation caused spikes in unemployment for the troubled nation, protesters finally gained the courage and took to the streets.

One of the Shah’s greatest critics was future Supreme Leader of Iran, Ruhollah Khomeini, whom the former later arrested and exiled in 1963. The Shah’s White Revolution, however, became subject to more criticism due to Ruhollah’s outspokenness, stating it broke with Shia Islamic traditions that Iran is known for and served western interests.

Taped versions of Ruhollah’s speeches became available to the public and in 1978, the protests had officially turned into a revolution, forcing the Shah to flee the country, officially ending 2,000+ years of Persian Monarchy.

Soon after, Ruhollah returned to Iran and was appointed interim Prime Minister.

1988 Shooting Down of Iran Air Flight 655

If you learned about this one in school, you had a wonderful teacher. For intents and purposes, I’m using a mainstream source in this article, just to show that the US Navy’s shooting down of Iran Air Flight 655 is not what those in many circles will call ‘fake news.’

First, a little bit of background.

In 1980, the US-sponsored Saddam Hussein and an Iraqi invasion into Iran, presumptively for a variety of reasons but bear in mind, this is shortly after Ruhollah became the now Islamic Republic of Iran’s first Supreme Leader.

From 1980 to 1988, the Iraqis wished to annex the Khuzestan Province of Iran and Iran wished to topple then-the Western-backed government of Saddam Hussein.

On July 3rd, 1988 the USS Vincennes was exchanging fire with Iran ships in the Persian Gulf. At the same time, Iran Air Flight 655 took off from Bandar Abbas International Airport. The Vincennes saw the passenger flight and fired upon it, the main story stating it mistook the flight for a military aircraft, killing all 290 passengers on board.

While those in the US, particularly the CIA saw this as an accident, Tehran acted differently, believing the event to be purposeful.

While evidence points that the shooting down of the aircraft easily could’ve been incidental, this tragedy took place during 1) a skirmish between the Vincennes and Iranian ships, and 2) during the final stages of the Iran-Iraq War, whereas again the US-sponsored and supported Iraq during the war’s eight years.

This really makes me think of the first article I wrote in the 100+ Years of False Flags Series, where the Germans reportedly opened fire on the RMS Lusitania, sinking the ship and killing most of the passengers and crew on board. While it has been proven that the Lusitania held military supplies in route to a British military base, recall that the German embassy warned 50 American newspapers of its presence in the Atlantic.

Whether German torpedoes hit the ship or if it was really a result of secondary explosions of munitions the ship was really carrying, the US and its allies took this as a purposeful attack to enter the war two years later against Germany, so the double-standard of the US looking to accuse Iran of aggression in its home territory after a passenger plane had been shot down just doesn’t add up.

Who is the Real Threat to Peace?

Political hardliners in Iran to this day often cite Iran Flight 655 as committed to destroying the Islamic Republic of Iran and will stop at nothing to accomplish this goal.

With Donald Trump’s backing out of the 2015 Nuclear Deal with Iran, plus Secretary of State and John Bolton’s claims without solid evidence of Iranian wrongdoing, and the fact the US has dozens of military bases surrounding Iranian military and mainland while holding a presence in the Persian Gulf, we can’t really blame Iran for seeing the US as a rogue threat.

Think back for a moment to 1770s Colonial America. What did the American Colonists think of the British, who increasingly a) sanctioned colonists via taxation without representation in Parliament and b) when the Americans refused to cooperate, they ended up sending military forces into the Colonies to enforce such harsh laws.

Why then, is it “okay” when America does the same thing to anyone it deems an enemy of national interests? It isn’t, and there shouldn’t be a double standard when it comes to foreign relations with other nations. As for me, until Iran places its bases in Canada and Mexico and has warships patrolling the Atlantic and Pacific, just beyond US territory, the nation poses zero threat to peace.

Relation to Lord of Columbia

Coming in 2020, Raven’s Flock is an allegory of modern-day US foreign policy.

For those of you who are unfamiliar, Lord of Columbia is an allegory of the complete history of the United States, just told in a modern-day, urban fantasy and borderline sci-fi take, much in the same way that George Lucas constructed Star Wars which if you read about and watch the movies carefully, the Saga is an allegory of US foreign policy itself.

Starting with Raven’s Flock, Book I in Trilogy II, the reader will uncover many correlations between US-Iranian relations, as the Columbian government uses its propaganda to motivate the masses into intervening in nations called Persia (Iran), Sovia (Russia), and Damasca (Syria), all at the urging of a nation called Nazarah (Israel).

A Gaian War may just be on the horizon, and real-life influences taken from US foreign relations over the past century played a massive role in my constructing of the plot in Episode IV, Raven’s Flock.

  1. It does look rather likely that Iran v US is a likely war scenario, which is sad to see.

    This article is an interesting take on historical relations, the events leading up to the likely impending war, and key takeaways.

    I think a lot of this boils down to oils aint oils, that on-going saga that has had different parts of the world at war or on the brink of war for generations.

    1. Hi, Shane, I think you’re 1,000% right here. Think about all the countries that have rich oil stores and America’s relation to those countries. Those that go along with our ways, like Saudi Arabia are definitely in our good graces despite Saudi Arabia’s poor track record regarding human rights, which is definitely going to be an article in the making. I mention Saudi Arabia because the US mainstream loves to use the term ‘liberation’ and ‘humanitarian’ when it comes to such foreign interventions, but despite the flaws in Iran’s Iraq’s, Libya’s and Syria’s governments over the past half-century, none of them come close to the monstrosity that’s Saudi Arabia. 

  2. What’s really the deal with the US and its involvement with the international wars? I mean, not only in the Iraqi wars, but the whole world. They feel responsible of every war to the extent in every war, they’re always – literally always – at the scene. If not, they cause it. It’s been an intriguing part of history since I was a kid. 

    As I mentioned in my previous comments on your site, you always amaze me with the way you gather sources and integrate them in one space, telling a story in a smooth way. Commendable. 

    Like you and the rest of the authors out there, we always take our inspirations from real-life situations and transform these into fantastical stories that many people enjoy, without knowing these are from truths written in a form of literature.

    1. Hi, Mecyll, thanks for the awesome words, and I think the word ‘oil’ has a lot to do with America’s involvement in war, especially in the oil-rich Middle East. Let’s not forget that in April-May of 2019 war with Venezuela seemed to be on the horizon, which is one of the most oil-rich nations in the western hemisphere. 

      I really want to write an article on how the US causes these wars to go down as well, since it’s a process of sometimes years in the making, but the direct cause has always been economic sanctions and how they hurt the civilians of such nations.

      I read an article today that the Ayatollah of Iran no longer wants diplomacy with the US after Trump’s latest rounds of sanctions. Trump is literally going to end up starving the people of Iran and if Iran retaliates militarily, who can blame them? At this point, the US is at such fault over their obsession with Iran which began in 1953 that even as an American, Iranian retaliation would be completely justifiable. 

  3. In my head, powerful countries are pimps exploiting powerless but “naturally” rich countries (whores). When a whore says no, here follows beating, torturing, even death.
    That’s how the story goes for centuries.
    I feel it’s not oil or diamonds or anything related to materialism that drives them to devastate the world. It’s power-hunger and the arrogant belief they are superior to others. World rulers my a**!
    As far as the drone in Iran is concerned, our mainstream media made it clear that the drone had entered the Iranian space. No one thought that taking it down was wrong.
    Perhaps I am wrong but I feel that neither presidents nor kings or prime ministers are responsible for all of this. The people in the shadows that are pulling the strings are to blame.
    Articles like this and people like you help shed some light to the shadows, Todd. Thank you!

    1. Mainstream media here in the States tried to brutalize Iran by claiming it was still in international space, but our alternative outlets rightfully stated otherwise, especially the Ron Paul Liberty Report, which showed evidence of the drone entering Iranian space and almost made its way to Iranian mainland. And I agree, I do think it’s about peoples’ desire to rule over others, as can be seen in all governments in the world.

      Something I’ve always stated was that I’m not siding with or trying to be sympathetic toward Iran; as they have as much government corruption as the rest of us. However, it all comes down to what our government is doing to their people, and endless sanctions plus trying to provoke an attack is indeed an act of war, a sanctions end up killing as many people as bombs dropped. At the end of the day, if there are any casualties from actions imposed by another country, it’s definitely an act of war, which Donald Trump is doing.

      I love how you stated it’s not presidents or prime ministers, but those pulling the strings. This will eventually lead me to an article exposing who Donald Trump really is and his connection to the globalist Rothschilds as well as the deep state. Something that mainstream Trump supporters won’t be too fond with me writing.

  4. I’m glad to have read a piece that has shed light on both parts of the story. History is often stated to be written by the victor, and it isn’t without both sides that you can truly understand how each group felt at the time and their actions or impulses that coincided with it. I often say too it’s never “national interest” anymore. It’s “international interest.” A very insightful and well-thought out article.

    1. Hi, Adam, I believe that’s always the case; the victor will always tell their side while the losing side of the story is suppressed. What we need is for both sides to hit the limelight, as there, in any circumstance, is truth to the losing side, and it needs to be brought into the light. 

  5. I find your writing fascinating. You have an innate perspective of how history has influenced the modern relationship between the East and the West. 

    In 1969, I was fortunate to have participated in an overland cultural expedition from the UK to India. We traversed Afghanistan and Iran. In those days Tehran was the first western looking city after leaving Austria. On our return journey by orders of the Shah, we were quarantined for medical reasons as we entered Iran from Afghanistan. Doctors monitored us. After three days we were deemed safe and allowed to continue our journey back home. We were housed and fed, courtesy of the Shah.

    There are many individuals in Iran who are pro West. And the current tensions are going to create hidden problems there. What solutions would you propose to covert distrust between the US and Iran to trust? I am amazed how Trump seems to trust North Korea more than Iran. I can hardly wait for your upcoming stories on this topic. 

    You confirmed my suspicion that your allegoric tale of The Lord Of The Columbia series was based in the US and its relationship with the Middle East. Do you plan on writing complete novels of these series? Or have you already done that.

    I love your cover graphics too. Great job indeed! 

    1. Hi, Edwin, I’m actually amazed that he trusts North Korea than Iran, myself, especially since North Korea is totally anti-West. I commend Trump for his diplomacy toward North Korea, but why he’s not doing the same with Iran, I believe it’s due to Iran’s rich natural resources that the US and UK have wanted control over for decades.

      The first solution to the problem is to get rid of these sanctions against Iran, which will only affect Iranian civilians. In my opinion, what the US is doing to Iran and has been doing to Iran is an act of war. Sanctions never affect who they’re intended to affect and only hurt the people of the nation, which of course will turn them further against us, bringing us closer to war. 

      I do plan on writing a trilogy about it. Trilogy I is an urban fantasy/sci-fi allegory of the American Revolution, so think US-UK relations in the 18th century. Trilogy II will be the allegory about the US and its relationship to the Middle East. I’ll be writing a third Trilogy as well, which has more to do with what I believe the US’ relationship with the world should look like.
