…from Press TV, Tehran
[ Editor’s Note: This is a big deal coming from Macron, taking on the unholy trinity of the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia when it comes to wanting a shooting conflict with Iran, by people who want to spend other people’s money and lives to do it while they rake in the profits to be made.
He is the first world leader to come out and charge “outside influence” in turning peaceful economic protests into violent ones by certain intelligence organizations. The goal of such acts is to trigger security forces into mass demonstrator shootings to trigger more hostility toward the government.
Such incitement acts are felonies to commit mass murder, but indulged in by operatives in countries feeling nice and cozy behind their sovereign immunity protections, a systemic cancer that must eventually deal with somehow.
This incitement activity is a throw back to the Cold War days where the rules were “anything is allowed” simply by claiming the goal was to defend against the advancement of communism. We have people with VT who were intimately aware of these activities and can lecture endlessly about them.
But frankly there is not much interest from the public knowing the truth about such events, even if it would arm them to more easily spot the same or similar tactics being used today, not for real national security interests, but to advance those of certain special interests to profit hugely by world instability.
They are like stockbrokers in that there is nothing they hate more than a stable market as the traders make their big money on futures trading, which is a safe bet when you know certain events are going to happen to take markets up or down.
The key thing I picked up on that was missing in corporate media, was any mention of the Iranian economic situation mainly being caused by international sanctions over a nuclear weapons program that did not exist.
Despite their claims of Iran having a secret nuclear weapons program, both Israel and its American Lobby NeoCon friends never put any evidence on the table during the JCPOA talks to kill them. We got total media silence on that part of the story, and which was not an oversight.
Unfortunately we do no live in a world where such obvious truths can be published. We will have to make some changes before they ever can. Until then we are frankly along for the ride, except for communities like VT, where the reality is quite clear, and we don’t get a warm fuzzy feeling preferring to ignore it, just a sick stomach … Jim W.

French President Emmanuel Macron has warned the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia against making belligerent statements on the recent developments inside Iran, calling on them to tone down their rhetoric which, he said, could lead to “war.”
“The official line pursued by the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia, who are our allies in many ways, is almost one that would lead us to war,” Macron told reporters on Wednesday.
The French president warned that for some countries, such a hostile policy is a “deliberate strategy.”
Macron underlined the need to maintain “permanent dialog” with Iran in an attempt to balance ties with Tehran while seeking channels to “increase international pressure” on the Islamic Republic.
“Otherwise, we end up surreptitiously rebuilding an ‘axis of evil,’” referring to the term used in 2002 by the then US president, George W. Bush, to call Iran, Iraq and North Korea in an attempt to rally support for launching a military campaign abroad under the pretext of fighting terror.
Macron further warned that the US and its allies risk engaging in a “conflict of extreme brutality” by sticking to their current hostile policies against Iran.
Last week, a number of peaceful protests began in several areas across the country, with the participants calling on authorities to address their economic issues.
Those gatherings were, however, overshadowed when armed elements and vandals showed up among ordinary protesters and began to launch attacks on public property, police stations and religious sites.
The original protesters soon left the streets upon calls by the authorities so security forces could deal with the rioters and sporadic violence, which continued in some towns and cities for several days.
Over a dozen people have been killed in the violence, according to state media reports. Since Wednesday, Iranian cities have been the scene of large pro-establishment rallies in condemnation of the deadly unrest.

Russia Warn US Against Interfering in Iran’s ‘Domestic Affairs’
Carol Adl News, World January 5, 2018
Young brave battle froggie decided to score some political points? Wants to play Charle de Gol and show that France is not vassal, but equal amidst equal? Well, nowadays their words mean nothing. Gentleman’s time in political world has passed away.. Yes, British gentlemen? … Yes, of course.
Amen, and use this, borrowing from Trump, “Make France great again”, which he should be challenged as noted above to extradite the MEK to Iran for trial. 🙂
Ho Ho, appropriate image. Without the French, we might not be independent. They are a distinct and complex people, and of late I get the sense that women there have been studying. Lagarde is also French, and a qualified keeper of the well. Macron and his wife, handled Trumps visit with dignity and certainly deserve applause for taking this approach right now. A solid foreign policy move. Maybe there’s a Rochambeau in the advisory. We’ll take it.
French pres. Macron would need the okay from some entity to tell the axis of malevolence stifle with the rhetorical BS. More than one individual has shown how Wall St. investors have eaten their 401k from many thousands to $500.00 or worse whereas had they only socked it away they would have thousands $$.
Mr. Dean, we never get the entire story from our media. One can watch the morning news channels for hours, and the only thing you may learn is that it’s cold back east. (while they piss down our back)
