The US has been case building for war with Iran for a long time. This is just another brick in the path to war. On its own, it has little significance. The Osama drama was an obvious acceleration towards war with Iran, now all they are doing is tossing more and more stuff into the propaganda machine to fire up the citizens to accept said war.

This is just another "chunk" of their case. Im sure before its all over we will see many more angles, such as a humanitarian angle, a religious angle, when you are conning your people into doing something that will cost them a lot and earn them nothing, you have to try to hand out justification on many levels to get as many people on board for their own reasons as possible.

Damn this seems to be official 'cause I'm finding it all over the net. I wonder how the U.S. is going to react to this, if they even do publically at all (which they won't). 30 spies, that's a pretty big number to be found in 1 country, I say good for Iran for doing their homework and shame on the States for not doing enough of theirs. They say that spies can be put to death in Iran, so let's hope this all gets settled in a peaceful transition.

Well nobody was reporting it at first but now yes, seems to be everywhere and seems to be true.
We'll see what happens though I guess.

Hmm this right after Iran is alledgedly linked to the 9/11 attacks?

Either this is a propaganda for propaganda blast or the heat is being turned up a little bit more

Not spies, enemy combatant out of uniform, quick do a US & water-board them to get false testimony to as an excuse wage an illegal war or do a pre-emptive strike. Then use the evidence gathered under torture to use in a militarty tribunal.

Once that is done we cannot accuse Iran of being a backwards country. They will be equivalent the first world countries.

Ive been saying since the day after the Osama drama that that little incident was the kick off to war with Iran. It was intended to be the "catalyst" event for war the same way 9-11 was for Iraq. Hence all their chanting in the media about "we need to unite as a people like we did on 9-11." It just didnt have the effect on people they wanted it to. Even though they planted the meme that people should be rolling out into the streets cheering "USA USA" we didnt. So they had to regroup and now they are looking for more fuel for the fire.

Things arent going for the economic elite in America exactly how they hoped they would. We are underwhelmed by their efforts to stir us atm.

The US and Israel are begging for a war with Iran and I'm afraid they will get their wish. If Iran refuses to free these 30 so called spies, the US won't be happy and then BOOM - the next day we see airstrikes on Tehran by NATO claiming its for freeing the people of Iran and try to make it look like a big Humanitarian Crisis.

I think you are way off target.

The U.S. would not go to war over 30 spies. they will deny that these spies have ties to the U.S.

If the U.S. is actively looking for an excuse to go to war with Iran, then this is not the one. They could never convince the American public to support a war with Iran over 30 spies.

The idea of "freeing the people of Iran" would be an even less viable excuse to get support from the U.S. citizens to invade Iran. "Freeing" the people of Iraq is still fresh in people's minds.. mainly because it hasn't ended.

Dont confuse cause with case building. Of course we would not go to war over 30 spies. The news story itself is one of many being fed to the people to prep us for the idea of war with Iran. None of the instances being reported with be the "cause." Its all just about building support for something they want to do for economic reasons, securing the middle east for easy resource extraction over the next several years.

And this only hours after 2 supposed defectors ratted out on Iran.

Let the propaganda war begin, the actual one will follow on a tv screen near you soon enough.

So I wonder how many secret stealth black helicopters are going to crash on THIS operation?

Or perhaps will this time they be blown out of the sky with S-300's?

In a statement read on state TV, Iran's secret service said its agents uncovered activities of a CIA-run espionage network that sought to recruit Iranian spies through U.S. diplomatic missions that include the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia and Turkey. The report didn't provide further details, but claimed the recruits had been asked to spy on Iran's research institutes, universities, nuclear programs and other sites. Iranian authorities occasionally announce the arrest of people with alleged ties to foreign intelligence agencies, particularly the U.S., Britain and Israel. There was no immediate comment by Washington.

Everyone is picking this up now.

I'm still yet to hear an official response from the US or an actual news (TV) comment on it..

Plus...

Two defectors from Iran’s intelligence service have testified that Iranian officials had “foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks,” according to a court filing Thursday in a federal lawsuit in Manhattan that seeks damages for Iran’s “direct support for, and sponsorship of, the most deadly act of terrorism in American history.”

One of the defectors also claimed that Iran was involved in planning the attacks, the filing said. The defectors’ identities and testimony were not revealed in the filing but were being submitted to a judge under seal, said lawyers who brought the original suit against Iran on behalf of families of dozens of 9/11 victims.
