“The announcement of Washington’s restoration of diplomatic relations with Havana prefigures that of relations with Tehran. The United States has not abandoned its imperialist ambitions and these two states have not renounced their revolutionary ideals. However, pragmatic, Washington acknowledges that Cuba and Iran will not be defeated by diplomatic isolation and economic war. He is preparing for another type of confrontation.” – Thierry Meyssan

The note on Iran’s Ottawa embassy door reads:

“Due to the hostile decision by the government of Canada, the embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Ottawa is closed and has no choice but to stop providing any consular services for its dear citizens.”  PressTV (1)

Ottawa’s severance of ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran has shocked the Canadian and international communities.

Canada’s tradition is to be one of the last countries to leave in a crisis, not the first.¨  John Mundy, Canada’s last ambassador to Iran 

Warmonger getting impatient and OPENLY suggesting False Flag attack to start war with Iran

Here is a comment (1) on a video of Patrick Clawson speaking at the influential neo-con Washington Institute for Near East Policy:

…any of the provocations and covert operations that Clawson is advocating — is pure warmongering and pure belligerence by the standards of international law, as well as any traditional standard of morality. Continue reading

Expelling Iranian Diplomats: Is Canada selling its Soul to America?

Almost half a million Iranians live in Canada. Many reside in Toronto. Tehran planned a consulate to serve them. They’ll have no representation now.”

Canada today operates as an appendage of imperial America. It abandoned its traditional commitment to equality, inclusiveness, and rule of law inviolability.

What corporate Canada wants, it gets. Militarism grows stronger. So does police state harshness.”

“Harper’s government, Canadian elites, its business community and military support imperial/neoliberal/anti-populist policies. Ottawa replicates Washington.

Michel Chossudovsky, director of the Center for Research on Globalization based in Montreal:

This decision wasn’t taken in Ottawa, it was taken in Washington. (…) All acts of mediation and diplomacy and peace-building are being scrapped in favor of a possible military strike on Iran“. (1)

“It’s very unfortunate. We have to maintain dialog with countries and build peace rather than create conditions which could lead to a military accident. Continue reading

NATO Official: Don’t Attack Iran
August 14, 2012

LaRouchePACRetired NATO general Lt. Gen. Charles Bouchard warned Israel and the U.S. not to launch a military attack on Iran. Bouchard, who retired from the Royal Canadian Air Force four months ago, and had headed the NATO mission in Libya that overthrew the Gaddafi regime, told Ha’arez that he doesn’t believe Israel would take such an illogical and irresponsible step as to attack Iran without international support, and NATO, he said, won’t unanimously support a military campaign against Iran any time soon, nor will the UN Security Council.

2012-08-11 Iran Earthquakes: Related to HAARP tectonic warfare?

2012-08-11 earthquake 23km SW of Ahar, Iran – 9.9 km DEPTH *

Pravda.ru (24.01.2010): “It can be observed that there is a correlation between seismic activity and the ionosphere, through the control of Radio Frequencies Induced by force fields, which is a HAARP feature, and it can be concluded that:

  1. Earthquakes identical in depth and linearly on the same fault are caused by induced frequency linear projection.
  2. A coordinated satellite configuration can generate concentrated frequency projections targeting specific points (force fields).
  3. A diagram shows that earthquakes considered to be artificial propagate linearly at the same depth.”

Ron Paul: When will we attack Syria?

“In my opinion, all the evidence to justify this attack is bogus.
It is no more credible than the pretext given for the 2003 invasion of Iraq
or the 2011 attack on Libya.”

It’s time to bring our troops home
and establish a non-interventionist foreign policy,
which is the only road to peace and prosperity.”
Ron Paul

Global Research

Israeli intelligence news confirms the holding of US-Israel military exercises in the Persian Gulf, simulating an attack on Iran, as well as a counterattack, by the Islamic Republic.

According to Israel’s DebkaFile, these exercises were ordered by President Obama. They involve the US and Israeli Air Force, naval forces, as well as intelligence and ground forces.

“The first oil in the Middle East was found in Iran in 1908 by the predecessor of BP.”

“In June 1953, the US Secret Service orchestrated a coup, known as Operation Ajax. It led to the creation of a national oil company, which promptly made a deal with the so-called Consortium, in which American companies took about half of what had been BP’s exclusive position.”

“Pressures are again mounting against Iran, which, like Libya, had decided to trade its oil in national currency rather than the dollar.” Continue reading
