    Iran can be Trumpís Nemesis

    Iran can be Trumpís Nemesis
    by melkulangara bhadrakumar - saturday june 15

    What a coincidence that a leaked document from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) just exposed that the chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria in April, 2018 was most likely staged. In security parlance, it was a false flag operation ó stage-managed cunningly to create the alibi for a Ďhumanitarian interventioní by the West in Syria.

    As it happened, the US and France did stage a missile strike at Syrian government targets in July that year, alleging that Damascus was culpable for what happened in Douma, ignoring the protests by Russia.
    ...
    Prima facie, there is enough circumstantial evidence to estimate that the attack on two tankers in the Gulf of Oman on June 13 has been a false flag operation. The attack on the two tankers with cargo heading for Japan took place just as the Japanese PM Shinzo Abe sat down for the meeting yesterday with Iranís Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in Tehran.

    The fact of the matter is that Abe was on a delicate mission to try to kickstart talks between the US and Iran. It is one of those delicate moments when a slight push can derail or even undermine the nascent move for dialogue. True, in the first round, Khamenei rejected talks with the US. But, as Abe said later, more efforts are needed for easing tensions between the US and Iran.

    Therefore, as regards the incident yesterday in the Gulf of Oman, the question to be asked is: Who stands to gain? Most certainly, it cannot be Iran, which has just laid on the table in plain terms what it takes for negotiations to commence between the US and Iran ó President Trump abandoning what Tehran calls the USí Ďeconomic terrorismí against it. Khamenei told Abe with great frankness that it is futile to negotiate with the US, which keeps resiling from international agreements. No doubt, Trump has been highly erratic by making overtures to Iran on the one hand and tightening the screw on the other hand. (See my blog Abeís mediatory mission to Tehran hangs in the balance.)

    Simply put, Iran has no axe to grind by undermining Abeís mission, especially since Japan is the only western power, which, historically speaking, never ever acted against Iran but on the contrary consistently maintained friendly ties and showed goodwill. (Once in 1953, Japan even ignored the British-American embargo against Iran and went ahead to import Iranian oil.)

    However, this much cannot be said about certain regional states ó which Iran has called the ĎB Teamí ó that are bent on perpetuating the US-Iran standoff and incrementally degrade Iran to a point that a military confrontation ensues at some point in which American power dispatches that country to the ďStone AgeĒ, as the present US National Security Advisor John Bolton once put it.

    In this roguesí gallery, apart from Israel, there is also Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
    ...
    Iran has sounded warnings in recent weeks, including at the level of Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, that this ĎB Teamí would at some point stage false flag operations to ratchet up tensions and/ or precipitate a crisis situation, that would in turn prompt Trump to order some sort of military action against Iran.

    To be sure, the stakes are very high for Israel, Saudi Arabia and the UAE if Abeís mission advances further and the current tensions begins to ease. An added factor for the ĎB Teamí is that time is the essence of the matter. It increasingly seems that Boltonís job as NSA is in danger. Trump has hinted more than once that he does not subscribe to Boltonís warmongering. The well-known ex-CIA officer and commentator John Kiriakou wrote this week that the White House has ďvery quietly and discreetly begun informal meetings with a list of a half-dozen possible replacements for Bolton.Ē (See the commentary in Consortium News titled JOHN KIRIAKOU: Boltonís Long Goodbye.) It is crucial for the ĎB Teamí that Bolton keeps his job in the White House. And there is no better way to hold back Trump from sacking his NSA when a crisis situation looms large in the Middle East.
    ...
    What needs to be factored in is that the US anticipates that in another fortnight, Iranís 60-day deadline for the European countries will expire to come up with concrete steps to fulfil their commitments under the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
    ...
    If Iran decides to reject the idea of unilaterally observing the 2015 deal (without any reciprocal acts by the international community), the US and its western allies will want to take the matter to the UN SC to revive the UNís past (pre-2015) sanctions against Iran. The big question is whether Russia and China would allow such a turn of events. Tehran has categorically denied any involvement in yesterdayís incident.

    U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he was ready to launch talks with Iran whenever it was ready, even as he blamed Tehran for attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman."We want to get them back to the table," Trump told Fox News in an interview. "I'm ready when they are," adding that he was in "no rush."

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.
