The new "Democracy" being thrown around in this world like "Imperialism" used to be.

Sad thing is same families but different nation doing their bidding.

That looks like a call to War...again.

It doesn't really matter what anyone else thinks or what the evidence is, if the US wants another War, it will happen.

Again, Iran is many things but stupid they are not.

There's no royalty involved, so what Escobar says makes sense. Since Manssor Arbabsiar is alleged to have confessed, part of that being that the undercover FBI was his actual contact as quoted here,

"According to the complaint, Arbabsiar also admitted to agents that, in connection with this plot, he was recruited, funded and directed by men he understood to be senior officials in Iran's Qods Force. He allegedly said these Iranian officials were aware of and approved of the use of [the confidential source] in connection with the plot; as well as payments to [the confidential source]; the means by which the Ambassador would be killed in the United States and the casualties that would likely result."

Why would then, the Iranian officials pick out this FBI man as their approved contact for Manssor Arbabsiar, they had to know of him more than well, that would be first base. It's too much a stretch of imagination for them to think that he was anything but FBI considering where he was, and what his role would be there, unless he was so really dirty himself. And it's also his testimoney that has uncovered this plot, and Manssor Arbabsiar's part in it. So, if the Iranians have 'patsied' Manssor Arbabsiar in a spoof set-up, what is the purpose, to get more sanctions on their country? or to sway the big middle-class, and students who are leaning more to western ideas away from that idea? remember the riots in Tehran and elsewhere early this year? None of that makes sense because the citizens are too smart for that.
