It looks as if the CIA is going to bring about big changes in Iran.
Iran contains Persians, Arabs, Azeris, Kurds, Turkmens, Baluchies and others.
It looks as if Iran is to be broken up, to make it easier to control.
Professor Bernard Lewis, at the Bilderberg Meeting in Baden, Austria, on April 27-29, 1979[i] [ii] "proposed the fragmentation and balkanization of Iran along regional, ethnic and linguistic lines." (PART VI: GEOPOLITICAL INTERESTS & PETROLEUM DIPLOMACY )
The CIA puts leaders into power and then topples them when they become too independent minded. (SUHARTO / Saddam worked for the CIA / The Shah of Iran was toppled by the CIA and MI6?)
Apparently, the CIA put the Ayatollahs into power in Iran. (The Ayatollahs and the CIA)
The Shah was becoming too powerful and was not cooperating on oil prices, heroin or nuclear power.
The CIA hoped that the Ayatollahs would keep Iran backward, feudal and easy to control.
Robert Dreyfuss, in 'Hostage to Khomeini', in 1975, wrote about Western 'plans for reversing the Shah’s industrialization program and for turning Iran into a model dark ages regime.' (The USA's alliance with Iran)
The CIA hoped that an Islamic Iran could be used against Soviet Russia, just as the Islamists in Afghanistan were used to weaken Soviet Russia.
Then there was the heroin trade, which is alleged to benefit the CIA. "It has been said that the ubiquitous Rafsanjani family and also Ayatollah Vaez-Tabasi ... are deeply involved in the drug trade..." (Opium, Brown Sugar & Mullahs in Iran « Plateau of Iran )
The US government poured weaons into Iran, after the Ayatollahs came to power, and that was good for the military-industrial complex.
And the eventual plan is the break up of Iran, and other Moslem countries,along ethnic and religious lines.
Iran, and its neighbours, will be easier to control when they are broken up.
Reportedly, the Bernard Lewis Plan (Bernard Lewis: one of the secret rulers of the world?) is to encourage nationalistic minorities, such as the the Kurds, the Baluchis and the Azerbaijani Turks. Brzezinski believes that US global dominance depends on US control of the oil-rich parts of the world, such as Iran. (The USA's alliance with Iran)
So, now the CIA wants to topple Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, because he is not being a CIA puppet, and because Iran is too powerful in its present state.
Former Pakistani Army General Mirza Aslam Beig claims the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has distributed 400 million dollars inside Iran to evoke a revolution. (CIA has Distributed 400 Million Dollars Inside Iran.)
Hossein Shariatmadari, a close pal of Khamenei, wrote in an editorial: "It has to be asked whether the actions of (the opposition leader Mousavi and his supporters) are in response to instructions of American authorities." (Ayatollah's aide accuses Iran opposition leader of being US agent)
On 28 December 2009, we read that at least 15 people have been killed in Tehran street battles
Among the dead was a nephew of Mir Hossein Mousavi, Iran’s opposition leader.
Reportedly there has been "mobile telephone footage of ... jubilant demonstrators attacking riot police and Basij militiamen, protesters gleefully setting light to a police station, Basiji building and motorbikes being captured from the security forces, detained protesters being freed from a police van..."
According to Ali Ansari, Professor of Iranian Studies at the University of St Andrews: "No one can now doubt that change is coming."
Tehran's Biggest Fear.
According to Harrison, the biggest threat to the ruling ayatollahs and generals in Iran comes from the separatist groups in Kurdish, Baluch, Azeri and Arab ethnic minority regions that make up some 44 percent of Iran's population.
During the Bush administration, the plan was "limited covert action carried out by proxy, in the case of the Baluch, through Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate or, I.S.I., and in the case of the Kurds by the C.I.A. in cooperation with Israel’s Mossad."
The C.I.A. provided weapons aid and training to the main Kurdish rebel group in Iran, according to U.S. journalists, Jon Lee Anderson and Seymour Hersh of the New Yorker and Borzou Daragahi of the Los Angeles Times.
The Arab separatists live in a province which produces 80 percent of Iran's crude oil revenue.
