Much has been said about the new missiles tested this past weekend. It is hard however to find anything about the turmoil taking place in Iran as we speak..

The Real News Being Downplayed

To understand Iran, is to understand the connection between the two…

Iran’s leaders have very little interest in bombing Israel, or American bases within range of their newly tested missiles… They do have a large vested interest towards staying in power inside their own country.

Flashback for a moment to Condoleezza Rice’s admission when no weapons of mass destruction materialized in Iraq. “We saw the same thing in East Germany when it collapsed. There was very little militaristic muscle capable of being applied towards the rest of Europe. Apparently it was all for show and was in place primarily to contain internal dissension… not project a threat to the West…

Saddam Hussein’s charade of fooling others into believing that he had WMD’s, was also in place to keep control of his own politics. As long as he had the perceived threat of WMD’s, he was safe within his own country. In fact, their need to him was so important enabling him to establish domestic control over dissenting elements within his own country, that he felt more safe in defying the West, than he did in admitting to his own people, that he had barely any iota of a threat at all..

The timing of this Iranian missile test and the revelation that there is another centrifuge plant near Qom, (yeah right, Google Earth picked it out two years ago…) are both attempts to place Iran in the cross-hairs of deadly enemies, and create a crises that is so bad, that all dissenting factions have no choice but to band together, if their nation is to survive….

The media is playing right into the right wing goverment’s hand… by calling out the deadly danger…

Now the smart thing to do and what I would begin immediately, is to spin this tactic to backfire on the right wingers of Iran. In order to do that all we need to do is to build up the respect for the opposition each time a stunt like this is pulled. The result would be this. If each time they test a missile, more Iranians join the opposition, the missiles will stop being launched…

The U.S. Europe, and Asian countries need to emphatically state that because of these irrational actions by the current Iranian leadership, Iran must take on its leaders and change them… The economic giants need not to threaten Iran, but instead announce they will support the opposition parties, donating money, supplying weapons, anything that will scare the pants off of those Iranian conservatives hanging on to power by a thread..

It can be done with words. We don’t need a task force in the Persian Gulf… That… helps the WRONG party. Instead, if we recognize the opposition as a worthy cause of enlightenment,one which is trying to overcome ignorance and suppression, and follow up so that every time an Iranian missile heads for the troposphere…. the world press lavishes praise upon the opposition, so much so, the world soon forgets the name of Iran’s president…

Now that is how you handle Iran…
