Iran Facts

Iran has one of the largest Jewish populations in the world, and the second-largest in the Middle East behind Israel.

Jews are protected by the Iranian constitution, and are guaranteed seats in the Iranian parliament.

The CIA admits that the U.S. overthrew the moderate, suit-and-tie-wearing, Democratically-elected prime minister of Iran in 1953.  He was overthrown because he had nationalized Iran’s oil, which had previously been controlled by BP and other Western oil companies.   As part of that action, the CIA admits that it hired Iranians to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its prime minister.

Well-known economist Nouriel Roubini says that attacking Iran would lead to global recession.  The IMF says that Iran cutting off oil supplies could raise crude prices 30%.  War with Iran would kill the American economy.

China and Russia have warned that attacking Iran could lead to World War III

Killing for Opium : If You Speak Out, You’re ‘Suicided’

In the above video, Officer Jack McLamb discusses the growing number of soldiers who are “committing suicide.”   Football star and Army Ranger, Pat Tillman, discovered the true reason the United States is engaged in these foreign wars.  He planned on making this information common knowledge upon returning to the states.  Only a few days after making this announcement, Pat Tillman was assassinated with three bullets to the forehead.

An excerpt from a letter by Pat Tillman’s father to the Army investigator: “You are a General, there is no way a man like you, with your intelligence, education, military, experience, responsibilities (primarily for difficult situations), and rank… believes the conclusions reached in the March 31, 2005 Briefing Book. But your signature is on it.  I assume, therefore, that you are part of this shameless bulls__t.  I embarrassed myself by treating you with respect.  I thought your rank deserved it and anticipated something different from the new and improved investigation. I won’t act so hypocritically if we meet again.” “In sum: F__k you… and yours.” Read the letters here: Pat Tillman Sr Letters

Afghanistan has been the greatest illicit opium producer in the entire world, ahead of Burma(Myanmar) and the “Golden Triangle” since 1992, excluding the year 2001.[1] Afghanistan is the main producer of opium in the “Golden Crescent“. Opium production in Afghanistan has been on the rise since U.S. occupation started in 2001. Based on UNODC data, there has been more opium poppy cultivation in each of the past four growing seasons (2004–2007) than in any one year during Taliban rule. Also, more land is now used for opium in Afghanistan than for coca cultivation in Latin America. In 2007, 92% of the non-pharmaceutical-grade opiates on the world market originated in Afghanistan.[2] This amounts to an export value of about $4 billion, with a quarter being earned by opium farmers and the rest going to district officials, insurgents, warlords, drug traffickers.[3] In the seven years (1994–2000) prior to a Taliban opium ban, the Afghan farmers’ share of gross income from opium was divided among 200,000 families.[4] In addition to opiates, Afghanistan is also the largest producer of hashish in the world.” SOURCE: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opium_production_in_Afghanistan

Only six corporations control the television networks.  The conflict of interest becomes apparent when one takes an in-depth look at each TV conglomerate.  Take General Electric (GE) for example.  GE owns NBC, CNBC, A&E and the History Channel among others.  GE also produces  locomotives, medical devices, and military aircraft engines.  GE is an intricate part of the pro-war Military Industrial Complex.

Without war, GE would not make as much money as it currently rakes in.

Since 10/30/2006,

GE has accumulated $11,136,982,048 in defense contracts.

As you can see, this creates a serious conflict of interest.  If  there is no war, then our mainstream media will not make money.  This explains why the mainstream media continullay distorts the truth regarding global conflicts.  The mainstream media in the United States cannot be trusted.

We can.
