The Reality Principle – Episode 3: "Iran: A Nation under Attack" with Ardeshir Ommani

2 November 2012 — www.boilingfrogspost.com 

Although most know Iran today as an international pariah, few pay any attention to the covert war being waged against the Islamic Republic of Iran every day.  From crippling economic sanctions to the assassination of scientists to the sabotage of critical infrastructure, Iran is under constant attack by her enemies.  Israel sees Iran as an obstacle to its own regional hegemonic designs, while the United States sees in Iran a dangerous model for other nations: economic and diplomatic independence outside the dominion of the US Empire.  Additionally, Iran is engaged in a long-term proxy war with Saudi Arabia, one that takes a number of forms and has various fronts.  Iran is a nation that is proud, rich in culture and history but, sadly, under perpetual assault by its enemies.

19 August 2012 — The News Dissector

 

Is This Incident A Retaliation Because A Bank Official Made A Disparaging Comment About US Hostility To Iran?

 

Johannesburg, South Africa: On the surface, it looked like a simple game of “Gotcha,” when New York Bank regulators blew the whistle on London’s Standard Chartered Bank for laundering money. The fact that the money was allegedly tied to Iran cast a major shadow on the allegations, given the Islamic Republic’s “bad guy” image in American policy circles.
