U.S. Already at War With Iran, Has Been for Decades

Many of these situations are not actual peace, just less overt acts of war that the populace rarely learns about -
“Iran has irrefutable evidence that exposes the official involvement of the United States government in anti-Iran planning and the dispatching of elements to conduct acts of sabotage and terror in Iran and other regional countries,” secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili said last week, promising to send evidence of “US state-sponsored terrorism” to the United Nations

“We possess one hundred pieces of irrefutable evidence that reveal the US role in directing terrorists for conducting acts of terror in Iran and the region,” Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei added.
The evidence continues...

As former CIA veteran Robert Baer explained in the documentary Vanguard: America’s Secret War With Iran, the U.S. has been at war with Iran through its terrorist proxies for years, notably the Kurdish militant nationalist group PJAK, which has been blamed for numerous attacks in Iran.

As the London Telegraph, ABC News and numerous other mainstream outlets reported back in 2007, the U.S. is also using the Al-Qaeda affiliated Sunni terrorist group Jundullah to carry out suicide bombings and other destabilization attacks in Iran, a policy crafted by the Bush administration which has been continued under Obama.

“President George W Bush has given the CIA approval to launch covert “black” operations to achieve regime change in Iran, intelligence sources have revealed. Mr Bush has signed an official document endorsing CIA plans for a propaganda and disinformation campaign intended to destabilize, and eventually topple, the theocratic rule of the mullahs,” reported Telegraph.
The Real Effect
Let's look at the history between these two countries -
  • 1953 - Mohammad Mossadeq was overthrown in a coup named Operation Ajax organized by the CIA.

  • 1979 - Iranian Revolution - Iranian Hostage Crisis
  • 1980 - US attacks Iran through it's puppet state Iraq. (Which in turn was subsequently invaded in 2003) 1 million Iranians died.
  • 1988 - USS Vincennes mistakenly shoots down an Iranian passenger jet after mistaking it for an F-14.
This is the hard part for most "conservatives" to understand. We have been attacking Iran for years and they refuse to attack back. Imagine if Iran had financed a coup against the US and then funded Mexico to openly attack our citizens that led to 1 million dead. We would rightly be outraged against their murderous activities. Yet we dislike their government and feel it's dangerous, so we reserve some sort of "right" to kill its citizens?

Yet hear we are again, funding freedom fighters terrorists to destabilize a legitimate government because they "might" get weapons that other nations have and because their rhetoric is too strong for our liking.

So just who is the greater menace to "world peace"?
