The Case For and Against a US Sponsored Regime Change in Iran
President Trump's lawyer and confidant, Rudy Giuliani, says Trump 'Committed' to Iran Regime Change.
Allegedly, the ''only way to achieve Mideast peace is with a regime change in Iran".
Case For US Sponsored Regime Change
There is none.
As with the Gulf of Tonkin resolution in Vietnam, as with taking out Saddam Hussein because of Iraq's alleged weapons of mass destruction, as with taking out Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, there is no case.
It's all lies. Even if you are foolish enough to think this is not another pack of lies, here's a pertinent Tweet.
Case Against US Sponsored Regime Change
Tim Kaine's pertinent Tweet is sufficient in and of itself. That's the beauty of it. But we can safely add.
- Look at Vietnam
- Look at Iraq
- Look at Libya
- Look at Afghanistan
- Look at Ukraine
Five clear failures. And there are many more. In 1953, the US and Great Britain engineered a coup against Iran's democratically elected prime minister Mohammad Mosaddeq.
The reason: Mosaddeq threatened to nationalize Iran's oil industry. The CIA Now Admits Its Role in the 1953 Iranian coup.
Years later, the coup backfired and led to the Iranian Revolution.
Question of Trust
Why should Iran trust the US? Actually, Iran would be crazy to trust the US.
Iran can see the destruction the US caused in Iraq. Iran can also look at North Korea and see the advantages of having a bomb.
Iran had no role in 911. Saudi nationals, our alleged friends, were behind 911.
Libya is a hellhole now that Gaddafi is gone. Al Qaeda, ISIS and terrorists control the country.
After the US took out Saddam Hussein, a power vacuum formed. ISIS arose out of that power vacuum. Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair now admits Iraq War Led to Creation of Isis.
ISIS is behind the mess in Syria, and US meddling helped destroy Syria as well.
Nation Building a Disaster
US Nation Building has been a disaster every time. And here we go again.
And once again, it's all a pack of lies.
The US has wasted trillions of dollars fighting nonsensical wars and the only thing we have to show for it is more enemies. There is no case for a US sponsored regime change in Iran.
