Who is the threat?

History is full of false-flag events and Iran may prove to be no different

It is a tad ironic that a Third Century Iranian prophet called Manes founded a religion which was around for a few centuries; Manichaeism was basically searching for a compromise between the forces of light and good against the forces of dark and evil.

Not too much has changed in nearly two millennia, as we hear the drumbeat of war again in the Persian Gulf with Western powers teaming up against Iran and its alleged nuclear program.

Canada’s Foreign Minister, John Baird was recently in Israel drawing comparisons between the regime in Iran and Hitler; never once did he mention the Jewish State’s own nuclear weaponry.

Then, on Valentine’s Day Iran pre-empted a threat from the European Union, and cancelled contracts for daily shipments of crude oil to Greece, Spain, Italy, Portugal, France and Holland. The EU’s threat was to terminate existing contracts on July 1.

Last week I received a map of Iran surrounded by countries such as Kuwait, Iraq, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, and countries across the Gulf like Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE and Oman. In these countries were a total of 45 black dots, each denoting a U.S. military base. So who is threatening whom?

History is full of false flag events, such as the Gulf of Tonkin Incident that led to the U.S. bombing of North Vietnam in 1964. We should all be highly skeptical of what politicians are presently telling us regarding Iran.

We are so used to the concept that might is right that we sometimes forget compromises that Manes was preaching about all those years ago.

The question always remains:  just who is good and who is evil ?
