4/6/15 IRAN, The issue is 'How can the Iranian Revolution be concluded", part 1

Making Iran Normal: Integration, Not Isolation, Is the Key
19 Jan 2011 18:58 by REZA SANATI in Miami http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/tehranbureau/2011/01/making-iran...
...In many ways, it is the United States that has not recovered from the Iranian Revolution. And since that cataclysmic event, Revolutionary Iran has been deemed a threat to the American security establishment's vital interests in the oil-rich Middle East. Hence, what Washington seeks is not necessarily regime change, but regime normalization, which over time, would lead to more conventional and predictable state behavior on Tehran's part. In other words, from the American perspective, the functional questions is: How can the Iranian Revolution be concluded and Iranian conduct, both domestically and globally, be normalized as demanded by international law and expected by international norms?
Reza Sanati is a research fellow at the Middle East Studies Center in Miami and a Ph.D. candidate at the Florida International University School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA).

Israel demands apology for ‘anti-Semitic’ Netanyahu cartoon

Sunday Times apologizes for Netanyahu cartoon. Rupert Murdoch, billionaire CEO of News Corp. which owns The Times, tweeted a harshly worded apology. Cartoonist apologizes for publication timing. Netanyahu cartoon Outcry over UK paper’s cartoon showing bloody Israeli oppression..One day after the caricature sparked outrage among Jewish groups for its depiction of a bloodthirsty Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu building a wall with the blood and bodies of Palestinians, leading Israelis joined the chorus of condemnation. In a meeting Monday with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Tony Blair, the representative of the Middle East quartet and also former British premier, deplored the caricature, according to a press release from the PM’s Office... Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs Minister Yuli Edelstein told Army Radio the government would probably refrain from filing an official complaint with the London-based paper. However “We will think about how to act against the paper’s representative here in Israel.”The cartoon is “certainly” anti-Semitic..Efraim Zuroff, director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center Israel office, called the cartoon “absolutely disgusting...makes all the talk of fighting anti-Semitism seem irrelevant,” and Michael Salberg of the Anti-Defamation League said “The Sunday Times has clearly lost its moral bearings — a spokesman for the London newspaper told The Times of Israel the cartoon was not anti-Semitic but critical of the prime minister’s policies, as it was “aimed squarely at Mr. Netanyahu and his policies, not at Israel, let alone at Jewish people.”

NATO: A short history
http://www.nato.int/history/nato-history.html
It is often said the North Atlantic Treaty Organization was founded in 1949 in response to the threat posed by the Soviet Union. This is only partially true. In fact, the Alliance’s creation was part of a broader effort to serve three purposes: deterring Soviet expansionism, forbidding the revival of nationalist militarism in Europe through a strong North American presence on the continent, and encouraging European political integration....The aftermath of World War II saw much of Europe devastated in a way that is now difficult to envision...In addition, Communists backed by the Soviet Union were threatening governments across Europe...US-funded Marshall Plan and other means fostered a degree of economic stabilisation. European states still needed confidence in their security...the North Atlantic Treaty was signed on 4 April, 1949...with Article 5, the key to the alliance, new Allies agreed “an armed attack against one or more of them… shall be considered an attack against them all” and that following such an attack, each Ally would take “such action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force” in response.... While the signing of the Treaty created Allies, it had not created a military structure that could effectively coordinate their actions. This changed when growing worries about Soviet intentions culminated in the Soviet detonation of an atomic bomb in 1949 and in the outbreak of the Korean War in 1950. The effect upon the Alliance was dramatic.
NATO soon gained a consolidated command structure with military Headquarters based in the Parisian suburb of Rocquencourt, near Versailles. This was Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) with US General Dwight D. Eisenhower the first Supreme Allied Commander Europe, or SACEUR. Soon after, the Allies established a permanent civilian secretariat in Paris...

PYONGYANG, (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Saturday refuted U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's recent remarks terming the country an "evil place," as "another vivid expression of the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK. Foreign Ministry spokesman said Kerry should be aware "no pressure is workable on the DPRK.

Report by Bruce Bennett and the RAND Corporation: U.S. must begin to consider the requirements of intervention – not to depose a totalitarian regime for the sake of an ideological crusade, but as pragmatic, necessary planning in the event weapons of mass destruction enter the calculus as a credible, serious danger. ..(digest: guess who determines ‘failed/collapsed states’ - in every sense?)...
A major crisis scenario that destabilizes the North Korean government and its mechanisms of control, no matter how unlikely, should prompt the international community to consider a multilateral framework for intervention.

Forces in Ferguson: Why it's a Strategic & Tactical Frontline

1,217 deadly police shootings from 2010 to 2012 captured in the federal data show blacks age 15 to 19 were killed at a rate of 31.17 per million, while just 1.47 per million white males in that age range died at the hands of police.

The US, in desperation semantically eradicated REVOLUTION and of course has declared "communism dead". Revolution, resistance, self-defense against US domination officially is "terrorism","violent extremism", to provide endless pretexts for its state terrorist death squads al-Q and clones, now including ISIS. The GWOT is one massive counter-revolutionary war, dependent on P20G operations. http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Middle_East/DK05Ak02.html>

Reality refuses to cooperate with US 'strategic communications" however. India, the Philippines, and Nepal are primary reasons why: unbeatable successes of what most threatens its survival because genuine revolutionaries are 'fish in the ocean' of the people as Mao put it
.
Example: today the 'news' informed us the Maoist-led revolution that began in 1967 in West Bengal India is "India’s Quiet Role as a Hotbed of Terror" 11/26/14< http://www.defenseone.com/threats/2014/11/indias-quiet-role-hotbed-terror/100034/>....The majority of India’s terrorism incidents in 2013 were related to the Maoist groups operating in Bihar, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh responsible for almost half of terrorism-related deaths in the country last year. That includes the attack on a Congress Party convoy in Chhattisgarh’s Darbha Valley in May 2013, where over 20 people, including senior Congress politicians, were shot dead by the insurgents. “Police are overwhelmingly the biggest targets of Maoists..."

Ferguson, part 2, "Black Africa and the U.S Black Movement"

digest note:
US special ops in the resistance against the 'justifiable homicide' in Ferguson Missouri are based upon and serve the overall U.S. global supremacy agenda in which domination of the African continent and the US Black nation are critical - and interconnected.
The following excerpt from Zbigniew's Brzezinski's 1978 National Security policy memorandum was to be in part 3. But because 36 years later, this is still US National Security Strategy, Z. Brzezinski is still a leading strategist and Obama 'consultant' (as Carters Sec. of State, ZB planned and executed the formation, training and arming of * Afghan mujahedeen under osama bin laden to suck the Soviet Union into Afgahnistan and defeat US main rival for global dominance.
The selected excerpt below is mainly from the US v. US Black liberation movement section because the current US "race war" tactic is a higher-tech level of the 1956-1971 COINTELPRO, ** P20G operation, to kill Black Panther Party leaders and BPP's increasingly broad influence beyond the Black nation.
Most importantly: regardless of today's total surveillance/information war fascist state of US capitalism, 500 hundred years of genocidal slavery, brutality and degradation has not been able to kill the Black nation's dignity and determination for liberation. However, it has greatly increased capitalist gravediggers of every nationality, everywhere in the world whose lives, lands and history still battle the same enemy called 'humanitarian aid', 'diplomacy, development. and defense'

USAID, through our assistance programs, plays an active and critical role in the promotion of U.S. foreign policy interests. The investment we make in developing countries has long-term benefits for America and the American people. Development now takes its place alongside defense and diplomacy as the three essential components of U.S. foreign policy.
