The article War with The U.S. Is of No Interest to Iran; Who Invented This Absurd Plot? casts lots of doubts about this latest alleged plot by Iran. Here is a single example.
Iranian intelligence is famously efficient at hiding its tracks. Though many believe that it was the Iranians who blew up Pan Am flight 103 in 1988 — in retaliation for the shoot-down of an Iranian civilian airliner by the U.S. Navy ship the USS Vincennes — no convincing trail has ever come to light. Yet it is supposedly Iranian intelligence that wired $100,000 to the used car salesman, allegedly a down payment for Los Zetas, using a known Al Quds force bank account.
If the bid was a false flag operation mounted by the Saudis or Israelis, an open transfer of money would be one obvious tactic. The U.S. has made swift use of dubious “plots” in the not-so-distant past.
War with Iran is also of no interest of the people of the U.S., but the politicians might find it a useful distraction. No more worries about cutting the deficit or creating jobs, just send the unemployed to fight a war in Iran no matter the cost.
