Obama's on a fast track toward tyranny. He's heading for greater intervention against Syria. Ravaging the country entirely is planned. At issue is establishing another pro-Western vassal state.
Netanyahu reflects Israeli fascism. He's hardline, unstable, unscrupulous and dangerous. He prioritizes conflict and instability.
It's official. Iran's Interior Minister Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar announced it. Rohani won 50.7% of 36.7 million votes cast.

Amid deepening social and economic crisis, Hassan Rouhani won Iran’s presidential election last Friday with an outright majority of 50.7 percent...Rouhani issued a statement declaring his win a victory of “moderation” and “progress” over “extremism and bad behaviour.” During the campaign, he criticized President Mahmoud Ahmadinjad for failing to prevent the imposition of harsh US-led economic sanctions over Iran’s nuclear program and called for “dialogue and interaction with the world.”
On June 14, Iranians began voting.
It's scheduled for June 14. Eight candidates will participate. If none achieve a 50% or more majority, a June 21 runoff will follow.
Hostile US/Israeli rhetoric is longstanding. Obama and Netanyahu consider Iran an existential threat. Claiming it turns truth on its head.
Iran's nuclear program is red herring cover for regime change. If it didn't exist, another pretext would be found. They're easy to invent.

In a speech delivered in Jerusalem on Thursday, US President Barack Obama identified US interests unconditionally with Israel while reiterating war threats against both Syria and Iran...Both the Israeli press and Palestinian analysts described Obama’s address...as the most enthusiastic embrace of the ideology of Zionism by any president in US history. One Israeli newspaper urged Obama to emigrate to Israel and run for office.
Permanent war is official US policy. Bipartisan complicity supports it. Doing so violates international, constitutional and US statute laws.
Dangerous demagoguery may become policy. Doing so reflects madness. Warmongers don't seem to care.
It's no surprise. It's been that way for years. Iran's legally entitled to enrich uranium. Dozens of other countries do the same thing.
Multiple previous P5+1 talks were held. America manipulated them to fail. So did Israel covertly. Western nations were pressured to go along.
It's continued for decades. Iran's a prime target of choice. Washington deplores independent governments. It wants pro-Western ones replacing them. It doesn't care if they're democratic, despotic or anything in between. Subservience to Washington alone matters.
Secretary of State John Kerry's clear where he stands. He laid down markers. He demands Iran comply with Washington's demands. Left unsaid is what follows otherwise.
