(Reuters) - Israel accused arch-enemies Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah of being behind twin bomb attacks that targeted Israeli embassy staff in India and Georgia on Monday, wounding four people.
Tehran denied involvement in the attacks, which amplified tensions between two countries already at loggerheads over Iran's nuclear program, and accused Israel of carrying out the attacks itself. Hezbollah made no comment.
In the Indian capital New Delhi, a bomb wrecked a car taking an Israeli embassy official to pick up her children from school, police said. The woman needed surgery to remove shrapnel but her life was not in danger. Her driver and two passers-by suffered lesser injuries.
Israeli officials said an attempt to bomb an embassy car in the Georgian capital Tbilisi failed, and the device was defused.
Those developments reek of a plot to frame Iran for these attacks, as well as this one in Thailand. From Haaretz:
"The U.S. condemned the botched terror attack in Thailand's capital on Tuesday, suggesting it may be linked to Iran. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the U.S.was awaiting the results of investigations, and did not blame Iran directly. However, she noted Monday's incidents in India and Georgia, and recent "Iranian-sponsored" and "Hezbollah-linked" plots to attack Israeli and Western interests in Azerbaijan and Thailand."
So, we see an attempt, by the mainstream media and the big powers in this issue, to demonize and point fingers at the big scary Iran. The most glaringly obvious part of this that sticks out to me as untrue is the fact that no one lost their lives. It's not terribly hard to make a bomb that's going to kill all the people in that car. If Iran really was behind it, and not Israel just going after their own to discredit Iran, why did no one perish. Surely, the bomb maker, if he is from Iran, is answering a lot of hard questions about it now.: lol:
So, do I think that there is a propaganda campaign underway to discredit Iran and make them seem like a threat to world peace? Absolutely. do I think it will work and the USA will go to war, declared or otherwise, with Iran? No, I think the country is too hardened in it's security, and that if the USA had a hard time in Afghanistan and Iraq, that they haven't seen anything yet. The Iranian people do dislike the west, but that's because the west sticks their dick in Iranian affairs far too often. If members of the Military Industrial Complex of the west had boots on the ground in Iran, those boots would be messy with the blood of the men who used to occupy them.
