Lindsey Graham: War with Iran Inevitable!

Staunch Republican Senator Lindsey Graham says it’s a sure thing the U.S. will go to war with Iran.  And the way it will happen, and why it must happen are profound, and some would say necessary, despite the injustice it entails.  We have two reports.  The first, from journalist Kim Iverson, followed by On-Tareget’s Larry Sparano, who offers his analysis in an exchange with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

 

Trump Clipping Wings of Warhawks?

Despite what looks like the best continuing efforts of Neocons Bolton, Pompeo and others, and despite the probably urging of Israel, President Donald Trump appears to be backing down from a hot war with Iran.  On-Target’s Larry Sparano talks about what direction events in the mid-east appear to be moving –so far.  Their discussion follows several reports on the situation by various alternative media outlets:

Pompeo Says: Iran Did It! — What Do You Think?

According to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, it is an open and shut case:  Iran is responsible for the latest attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf.  And that is setting the stage for the Trump addministration’s long-promised retaliation on Iran, if so provoked.  Some U.S. media are now at least mentioning that perhaps Iran did not do it, implying that it might be a false-flag attack that America needs as a premise to attack Iran. But the U.S. propaganda machine is fully engaged in demonizing the second-largest nation in the mid-east.  So, are we headed toward another strategic disaster in that region of the world?  Emma Vigeland of Rebel HQ News thinks so.  You’ll hear the tail end of her report, followed by the latest discussion with On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Putin Behind Trump-Pompeo Back Off on Iran?

Up unitl this week, it looked like the U.S. was ready to go war with Iran.  But now all that has changed, with the Trump administration claiming that it has forced Iran to cease its moves against U.S. interests in the region.  But what is the real story?  On-Target’s Larry Sparano says it’s not Iran that has backed off, but rather it was the Trump administration that decided to cool things down.  He explains why in this exchange with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:  Their conversation follows a report concluding that U.S. claims of Iranian agression were false to begin with.  (We apologize for the poor audio quality of what you are about to hear:)

Trump’s War with Iran and Immigration Laws: –How Will it Play to his Base?

Would a war with Iran be a boost or a hindrance to Trump’s ability to hold onto his base and gain even wider support going into the 2020 election?  And what about his proposed changes to immigration law, and what the requirements should be for entry into the U.S.?  According to CNN’s Don Lemon, both would be a big negative for the President.  But On-Target’s Larry Sparano is not so sure.  He discusses both topics with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

 

Second U.S. False Flag Attack on Iran? –Will Russia Stop Trump’s New War?

A second “terror” attack is now being reported on the Saudi oil industry.  Earlier this week came news that two Saudi oil tankers were sabotaged.  Now, the Saudis are claiming that a major pipeline was attacked by drones, forcing the pipeline’s temporary shutdown.  Are these real incidents, or U.S. orchestrated “false flag” attacks that will be blamed on Iran?  On-Target’s Larry Sparano says it’s all reminenscent of political manipulations we’ve seen many times before.  Larry’s discussion with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York begins with the tale end of a clip from RT News.  In it, you’ll hear Former U.S. Army Colonel and diplomat Ann Wright sum up her take on what’s happening now in the mid-east. Wright resigned her position in protest of the Bush administration’s launch of the Iraqi War:

Paul Craig Roberts on Iran — A War Trump Can’t Win

Saudi Arabia is claiming that “sabotage attacks” have damaged two of its oil tankers near the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf.   Is it part of a plan to stage “false flag” attacks which can be blamed on Iran, in order to provide a pretext for the U.S. to launch an assault on that troublesoms, oil rich nation?  Remember what General Wesley Clark said about the Pentagon memo which described the Bush’s administration’s plan to take out seven countries in five years in the middle east, starting with Iraq, and ending with Iran.  And remember how the Johnson administration used alleged attacks by North Vietnamese patrol boats on American ships as a pretext for widening that war.  Political Analyst Paul Craig Roberts says if Trump is bucking for military action against Iran, he’ll be getting himself involved in a war he can’t win:
