The Winter of Iran's Discontent? Destabilizing Iran & Pakistan
Kurds as destabilizers of Iran, simultaneous with Syria & Turkey, present day:
I had this saved from yesterday and WizOz left the link along with a comment-
December 31/2017- Iran’s Kurdish opposition parties back protesters, call for international support
In a combined statement on Saturday, the Kurdistan Democratic Party-Iran (PDKI) and the Komala Party of Iranian Kurdistan (Komala) called on authorities to free people who were arrested for participating in country-wide protests.
The PDKI and Komala urged NGOs, political centers, and world leaders to support the demands of Iranian people and pressure the regime to release the imprisoned protesters and others unfairly detained during previous movements in Rojhelat.
On Sunday, the Kurdistan Free Life Party (PJAK) released a statement calling on the people of Iran “to fight and stand together to seek a new way forward for a democratic Iran.”In response to WizOz's comment, I wrote this yesterday:
Bingo! Trump the Twit, on Twitter:
Happy New Year Wiz Oz et al:
From above "And yet I think this is a bit bigger then just Iran- think Pakistan - if your going to go, may as well go big!"
What is Trump tweeting about? I mean his first tweets of 2018!
"Trump began the new year by launching an attack on Islamabad in his first tweet of 2018, saying Pakistan was providing “safe haven to the terrorists we hunt”.
Bin Laden being caught in Pakistan will make the rounds again!
“The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools,” he wrote. “They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!”
Recall my July 2017 post about the coup in Pakistan?
"The deep state with the assistance of outside interests?
Can't say for certain. Let's just say there is a high probability of outside interest involvement considering all players and nation states affected by the removal of Nawaz Sharif"
As expected!This was predictable. And Trump, the boor, makes it so obvious.
Let's revisit the July 2017 post covering the 'soft coup' in Pakistan.

And you'll want to keep this more recent post in mind.. French ISIS Fighters Relocate to Afghanistan from Syria aka the french foreign legion
"Several foreign militants affiliated with the Islamic State terror group including French and Algerian nationals have moved to Afghanistan after they were suppressed during the operations in Syria and Iraq, it has been reported"The US and Israel have been positively beaming, braying and drooling over the protests in Iran.
US State Department Hints Regime Change Op In Iran Underway?
The US State Department has issued a formal condemnation of the Iranian government following two days of economic protests centering in a handful of cities, calling the regime “a rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, and chaos” while announcing support for protesters.Certainly the US knows those elements are present in Iran. Since they've been dealing with them, arming them/training them and giving them shelter for years and years and years...
It fits a familiar script which seems to roll out when anyone protests for any reason in a country considered an enemy of the United States (whether over economic grievances or full on calling for government overthrow).
The statement by spokesperson Heather Nauert, released late on Friday, further comes very close to calling for regime change in Iran when it asserts the following:
On June 14, 2017, Secretary Tillerson testified to Congress that he supports “those elements inside of Iran that would lead to a peaceful transition of government. Those elements are there, certainly as we know.” The Secretary today repeats his deep support for the Iranian people.
The media is already promoting a regime change narrative.
"As we noted during our initial coverage of Thursday’s protests, Israeli as well as Iranian opposition media commentators (and of course pundits in the US mainstream) have generally appeared giddy with excitement at the prospect that protests could spread inside Iran, potentially culminating in society-wide resistance and possible change in government. It goes without saying that Iran has been enemy #1 for the United States and Israel since the Islamic Revolution and embassy hostage crisis beginning in 1979.
Consider for example a major Israeli international broadcast network, which in an English language interview segment covering the very beginnings of (relatively small and limited) protests Thursday quickly linked the Tehran government with use of chemical weapons in Syria, supporting the “biggest butcher in this region Bashar al-Assad”, and facilitating the killing of civilians.
Simultaneously the resident “expert” presents the protesters as condemning these things while yearning for freedom and democracy. He can barely contain himself while repeating “It’s spontaneous! It’s spontaneous!… and could be more spontaneous! …it inspires people to go out more! …Because it’s spontaneous these two are combustible mixtures”.It's spontaneous??? I wish some mass protests would break out, truly spontaneously, in Canada. It's pretty restricted here- And yah, about those Google algorithms impeding freedom of speech and discourse?? I've yet to see any real concerns expressed in the land of the dumbed down and gullible- Canada? Whatever... These protests in Iran are not spontaneous. They are fomented. Encouraged. And supported. By the US. By Israel. Canada. The usual suspects
Did Israel and the US “secretly” sign a Confront Iran memorandum?
"Last Thursday, TV Channel 10 in Israel, citing Israeli and American officials, aired a report which claimed that Israel and the United States had secretly signed a memorandum of understandings on how to confront Iran.And finally....."Diplomats reportedly on same page for overt and covert plans..."
The accord was reportedly signed on December 12 after intensive talks between Israeli and US intelligence and defense officials and the ceremony was attended by the heads of the national security councils of the two countries according to Channel 10.
The agreement outlined “steps on the ground” against the various threats emanating from Tehran and culminated in the forming of three joint teams.
The first team is to deal with the growing threat to Israel and the Sunni Arab countries and plans to focus on Iran’s creeping encroachment on the Syrian Israeli border and its aid to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
The second team was set up to gather intelligence on Iran’s nuclear program, which both the Trump Administration and Israel think is covertly commencing, despite the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers.
A third team would grapple with Iran’s ballistic missile program and the Iranian efforts to build underground missile silos, factories which manufacture precision weaponry and military bases for the Quds Force of the IRGC in Syria"

"Barak Ravid, a reporter for Israel’s Channel 10 and for the U.S. political newswire Axios, reported on Thursday that teams led by President Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser, H.R. McMaster, and his Israeli counterpart, Meir Ben-Shabbat, agreed on overt and covert plans to block any potential nuclear threat from Iran.
Additionally, the joint document aims to counter Iran’s expanded missile development, its military interventions in Syria and its support for Hezbollah and other designated terrorist groups.
The American and Israeli teams would form working groups and hew to an Iran strategy Trump outlined in October, which includes reviewing and amending the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and expanding pressure on Iran outside the framework of the agreement. The 2015 deal exchanges sanctions relief for a rollback in Iran’s nuclear program. Trump has said it’s a bad deal and wants tougher strictures"Flashback: Trump Will "Decertify" the Iran Nuclear Deal.
