So the base ignorance and ugliness of mankind was perfectly manipulated to promote the beating of animosity on the drum of separation. Israel
and the Mossad deserve a round of applause. This was well orchestrated and executed.
Why do you assume that it was the work of Mossad and Israel? If the base to your theory is that article, wouldn't that mean that one of the many
conspiracy articles in the West could be evidence of political manipulation? It's not like we have a lack of those with characters like Alex Jones
(to name an example).
Just because it is plausible, and there is a margin of possibility, doesn't mean they did it, in my opinion. We should, as an exercise of
investigation and unbiased analysis, look for other possible suspects.
I'm not going to say that this is a known fact, or that I've evidence for this. I will only make this example to show that it isn't all that
simple, and that a lot of other possibilities can be investigated:
The main focus of Iran military power is in what is called Asymmetric Warfare
Brief explanation from that source:
"Asymmetric warfare" can describe a conflict in which the resources of two belligerents differ in essence and in the struggle, interact and
attempt to exploit each other's characteristic weaknesses. Such struggles often involve strategies and tactics of unconventional warfare, the weaker
combatants attempting to use strategy to offset deficiencies in quantity or quality. Such strategies may not necessarily be
Israel might be a very bad boy when it comes to waiting and not-being
trigger happy. But it isn't Israel who is using asymmetric warfare.
It's actually the other side of the coin.
Iran hasn't been in any direct confrontation in decades, but they have been funding several terrorist groups, and stating very clearly that they
support both their objectives and the way they fight.
Recently, when there was a lot of talk about a possible closure of the Strait of Hormuz, Iran stated they would use asymmetric warfare tactics to
counter the West opposition. Like, for instance, the use of naval mines. This was such a serious claim that one of the types of ships being deployed
in the Gulf are Minesweepers.
Asymmetric warfare also works with propaganda, guerrilla warfare and that sort of thing.
In my opinion, it's not hard to imagine an extremist group, affiliated with any of the countries who oppose Israel and the West, to fund and organize
The speed at which it has spread to other countries, the nature of the attacks - focusing on american facilities, embassies and franchises - and the
fact it was picked up touching a very sensitive nerve for the muslims, makes me think it's very well plausible that an extremist group is behind all
The damage being done to both U.S. foreign policy and to U.S. infrastructures is immense, and it continues to grow. The consequences of this don't
actually play in favor of Israel, because this is actually steering away the discussion about Iran's nuclear program.
Which, funny that I mention it, a new IAEA report came out, where you can read:
The IAEA Board of Governors concluded its third meeting of the year on 14 September 2012 after discussing several key issues and adopting a
resolution urging Iran to cooperate with the Agency.
The Board also discussed the implementation of safeguards in Syria and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
With the current discussion about Iran's possible nuclear intentions, the very near UN meeting, and other peripheral subjects, isn't it also
plausible to assume this was made on purpose, to ignite problems where they didn't exist, just to mask other events?
In all fairness, this noise that we are hearing around the protests is against
Israel interest, not in favor. It's in the best interest of
Israel that everyone discusses and talks about Iran, and not these current events.
Not only that, but these events seem to be uniting muslims across the World. I believe that is also not
in the best interest of Israel.
In order to find the person responsible for an act, you must first elaborate on their motives, so you can narrow down your suspects, right?
The first big question we need to ask is: who is getting the best of this situation?
- Not Obama nor Romney, since both campaigns got interrupted by this perfect political storm
- Not Israel, because their biggest concern is Iran, and that has lost a lot of media attention;
- Not the West, since all these events are destroying any efforts of a positive foreign policy.
