Iran’s Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei: “U.S. will receive a proper response if it acts logically”

It’s amazing when you can browse world news headlines and see open instances of psychological “projection and transference” being acted out on an international scale. I see this all the time, and of course it’s not new, but it is just as grating on the nerves when you see it for the umpteenth time as it is the first time. It usually goes like this:

One nation [ nation A ] accuses another nation [ nation B ] of the very abuses or crimes, or misdeeds or whatever [ fill-in-the-blank ] that the first nation itself is guilty of.  But in the international game of twisted logic and socially endorsed madness that is known by the popular term “foreign policy” it’s usually “nation A” which is actually guilty of the many political transgressions and foreign policy mistakes which it heaps upon the pile of accusations placed onto “nation B” instead. Only the astute can actually perceive the psychological arm wrestling match between the two nations [ A & B ] which is being wagered when these events take place in the media.  In other words a wager is being placed upon how damaging the accusatory poop [ otherwise known as official statements from nation A’s highest officials and heads of state ] from nation A  – directed at nation B – might be on the world scene.

This is also known as:

“If we collectively lie and say this: “___________” about nation A, will it work? Can we persuade the world that our accusatory poop is actually truthful, if we deliver it with enough force, pomp and media fortification? Let’s try it.”

Now what makes this particular form of  global madness all the more toxic is the fact that nation B usually retorts quite publicly to the original “projection and transference” accusations from nation A in such a manner that the whole round of psychological poop slinging escalates.  This escalation of international psychological poop slinging in the world media is also known as psychological warfare, aka PSY OPs, or “psychological operations.”  It’s also another term for routine foreign policy dialogues.

As this escalation rises, high officials from both nation A and nation B weigh in on the matter, along with official hired pontificators for both nations A and B and every other major nation on Earth [ that would be nations C through Z  ].

Never mind the fact that the original accusatory poop slung out from nation A was the telltale “projection and transference” spittle that spiritually rotted envious small rogue nations spew when trying to convince the world that their deranged manner of governance [ which their own people despise and want to flee ] is both moral, just, superior and desirable.

The red headed stepchild who lives in the basement rogue nations which most often resort to this tired old tactic to try and advance their positions on the world scene are also the very same nations who routinely perpetrate the most outrageously inhumane, oppressive, cruel and outrageous human rights abuses upon their own people, namely Iran and North Korea.

All the World Becoming One Huge Ongoing International Media PSY OP

I have watched all this high silliness play out in the international media for decades and it is certainly nothing new. But it is tiresome enough that now and again I comment on it.  I would add that apparently no one has ever told the Iranian Ayatollah that in the West we have these people called “bloggers” who not only have access to documented facts and statistics on human rights abuses, but that these “bloggers” routinely report on such urgent issues [ like human rights abuses in Iran ]  online, citing the facts rather than resorting to “projection and transference” to try to make their case.

Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei: “Iran has one of the most transparent democracies in the region.”

Let’s put it this way:  If Iran is an “open democracy” then I am most assuredly, the true Queen of England living in hiding in the wilds of the American Pacific Northwest.

Today One Dollar Equals 33,000 Iranian Rials: Dismantling Iran’s Currency – Will It Deter WW3?

In early 2003 Colin Powell told the UN and the world in his now infamous WMD presentation that economic sanctions were not working to deter Iraq from persuing the development of “weapons of mass destruction.” Most Americans bought his presentation as factual, and now, nine years and 3.5 trillion in military war debt later, Americans are faced with the same damning double edged sword regarding Iran and their nuclear ambitions. We are damned if we do something, and Israel may be damned if we don’t. It’s a miserable moment of deja vu for America.

Small hopeful news today, as reports indicate that economic sanctions applied by the US, UK, France and other European nations against Iran are finally having an effect on their currency. Today on October 4th 2012 one dollar equals 33,000 Iranian Rials.

I have great compassion for Iranian young people [ 60% of Iranians are under the age of 30], and it’s not at all pleasant to report on this blog that the actions of your own nation are helping to cause the utter collapse of a currency in another. But I wonder, how many young Iranians really want to bomb Israel into nuclear dust? What’s the real percentage of the Iranian population that actually shares President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad‘s unstable beserker fury toward the nation of Israel?

The video below was taken yesterday by a “man on the street” in Iran who clearly feared being seen trying to video record the angry crowds and the riot police.

Riot police clashed with demonstrators and arrested money changers in Tehran on Wednesday in disturbances over the collapse of the Iranian currency, which has lost 40 percent of its value against the dollar in a week.

If it presently takes the ultimate arm twisting of sanctioning Iran’s currency into worthless shreds to keep the peace and prevent nuclear war now, what will it take later, when Iranians are fighting each other in the streets over bread?  Won’t Iranian economic sanctions ultimately achieve the same boiling point of fury in the Iranian people to ignite even more hatred of Israel as the imagined source of all their new fiscal sorrows?

I see no defusing this age old hatred.  Only a sudden massive spiritual change of heart about killing your Mideast neighbor, or any neighbor could pour enough water on the fire in the Mideast to change the future and avert World War Three.

But we are not living in a period where sudden spiritual changes of heart take place in a population. No matter what Iranians really think and believe about war with Israel, the ignition switch that starts this conflict will spread like wildfire around the world within months. Has all wisdom now utterly fled the spiritual and secular leaders of the Iranian people?

Here is the $64,000 question. I pose this question to the Iranian people and their leaders, both spiritual and secular.

If you knew that a sudden authentic spiritual change of heart within yourself about the wisdom of killing your own Mideast neighbors could have a great enough impact to eventually avert World War Three from igniting, would you strive and pray to achieve that inner change of heart now, before it is too late?  Or have you finally slipped past the point of recognizing that hatred war and death lead to more hatred war and death and that the escalating cycle of your war lust will lead to a global nuclear war?

Next: Are you wise enough to realize that global nuclear war will seriously jeopardize the survival of the human race?

In other words, is your sacred hatred to which you cling so dear to you that you would deem it wise to risk the literal survival of the human species in order to hold onto it and act on it by attacking Israel? If your present lack of wisdom, spiritual intelligence and visceral common sense has reached the lowest level of abject evacuation, if you have achieved the final void of all insight and the absence of all ability to ascertain how present actions can affect the future of the world for all time, then YES, sanctions are needed to dismantle your currency, cripple your secret war machine, and rewrite the post World War Three future wherein a pitiful few radioactive survivors lie in the streets gnawing each other until they finally succumb.


The eventual final world war that Iranian leaders think they are asking for by accelerating their secret nuclear program will be more astonishing and conclusive than many would dare imagine. It won’t necessarily last that long, as global wind patterns will carry the radioactivity of just a few nuclear detonations in the Mideast all around the planet within a few days, poisoning everything as months pass. There will be no clean water to be found anywhere within a few months, and no land clean enough to grow crops. Famine, sudden and explosive, horrendous famine will be the first worldwide consequence of the foolishly planned “limited nuclear war” in the Mideast which Iranian war planners try to justify in their imaginations to sate their irrational hatred of Israel.

If breaking the back of the Iranian currency is our last peaceful option, if this is the very last card the West can play which might defuse the sparking tinderbox, then we need to exercise that option until it runs out, or until the Iranian people and their leaders DO garner a genuine spiritual and peaceful change of heart about their plans to obliterate Israel and ignite a global nuclear war. Since the odds of the Iranian leaders having any sort of genuinely spiritual thought or change of heart are very poor indeed at this point, Americans like me now turn to the Iranian people, including the young people,  to beg them to demand that  their psychotic President cease and desist his planning for the start of World War Three in the Mideast.

I can only implore  the Iranian people to awaken to the dire and dreadful path they are on now, if they continue to allow President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to make plans to attack Israel without realizing the eventual horrific and irreversible global consequences.

In the famous words of a well known rock singer from days gone by: “It Isn’t Gonna Be That Way.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warns Iran six months away from nuclear bomb

As tensions and rioting in the Mideast escalate due to the recent promotion of a seedy anti-Muhammad amateur movie production, and more and more Western embassies  in the Mideast come under attack, Israel‘s Benjamin Netanyahu is reiterating again his earlier statements that a definitive “red line” must be drawn by the United States which would stop Iran from further work toward developing a nuclear bomb. Any sense of urgency seems to be lost on President Obama, who is seen in the video below bowing to Arab Princes on 9.11.2012 and referring to them as “your Highness.”

This kind of shameful public groveling is devastating for United States foreign policy and further erodes our position in the world.

It is a flagrant sign of weakness as perceived by Russia and other foreign countries with whom we have tense relations at this pivotal time. The world still looks to the United States for leadership. Israel needs the United States to make a firm stand regarding Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

We need to elect Mitt Romney to the presidency, retire Barack Obama, and we must then make an urgent and immediate correction in our foreign policy to reflect the true status of the United States as a nation with a backbone of steel when it comes to containing growing foreign threats to our national security, both in the military and economic sense. Our nation has been a strong ally of Israel since the nation’s founding in 1948. Now is not the time to falter in our support of one of our only remaining allies in a world which is increasingly hostile to the United States. It does not matter how much foreign aid money we continue throw at Islamic led radical regimes. Their intent is clear to those who have the eyes to see.

The Obama administration needs to awaken to the new actuality of what is brewing in the Mideast. More foreign aid rendered to Egypt and other countries led by Islamic regimes is only arming these nations to turn on their primary benefactor with ever more blood lust as tensions rise. The American people can see the truth of this. Why can’t our leaders see it? What is blinding American foreign policy?
