What is Really Behind Iran's Unrest?


 

Published September 25, 2022

The Western media is depicting unrest in Iran as "the people" demanding social justice and women's rights. In reality, it is part of a years-long effort by Washington to foment upheaval and regime change in Iran.

Policy papers from 2009 detailed step-by-step how the US could overthrow the Iranian government and install an obedient client regime in its place. Since then, each step has been implemented verbatim with varying degrees of success, and the process, as we can now see, continues today.


An example of US shameless media propaganda of benefit to the US empire (identical to the reports distributed by other corporate media, in all formats (TV, radio, print, social media, etc.) The filth and cynicism never stop because that's how Western power elites think and operate—with complete amorality.

Up to You.

^3000US citizens have no real political representation.

We don't live in a democracy. And our freedom is disappearing fast.

I don't want to be ruled by hypocrites, whores, and war criminals.

What about you? Time to push back against the corporate oligarchy.

And its multitude of minions and lackeys.
