If there is one thing the government, the mainstream media and even Donald Trump can agree on, it is pushing the United States to spend billions of dollars illegally invading a sovereign nation, and given all of the hype surrounding the latest target, we’re going to look at 5 reasons why the United States wants war with Iran:
5. While economic sanctions from the U.S. and its allies have reduced production in recent years, Iran has the fourth-largest crude oil reserves and the second-largest natural gas reserves in the world. And we all know how much the United States loves to bring freedom to countries with an abundance of natural resources.
4. When the prime minister of Iran was overthrown in 1953, it was an event that was coordinated and influenced by the CIA. But the new puppet dictator only created more problems for the country, which led to a revolution that resulted in a brutally repressive regime that spurred violence throughout the Middle East. The U.S. did not maintain control of the country then, but that won’t stop it from trying to do the same thing again.
3. The U.S. has been planning to invade Iran again since September 2001. The country was listed as one of the seven the U.S. planned on going to war with in the coming years, according to a memo from the U.S. Secretary of Defense. “This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years. Starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and finishing off with Iran.” General Wesley Clark said.
2. Two of the United States’ closest allies, Israel and Saudi Arabia, have also been working together to provoke war with Iran, according to leaked secret cables. Saudi Arabia recently promoted a video showing a simulation of Saudi Troops invading and conquering Iran. And in addition to launching airstrikes at targets it claimed were being used by Iran in Syria, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu wants a war with Iran so bad, he has even drawn pictures about it!
1. After the U.S. included Iran in its travel ban in 2017, Iran announced that it was dropping the U.S. dollar—a fatal move that was made by Iraq, Libya and Syria before they were invaded by the United States. In order to understand the United States’ fervor for war with Iran, you have to look at history, look at the actions of U.S. allies, and most importantly, follow the money.
