US uses its troops as bait — where they don't belong — and then claims that the anti-colonialists who kill and harm them are fully controlled by Iran

US parallels Israel's blanket insanity . . .


. . . by ascribing all pretended evils to one source.



For instance


Regarding the sad deaths and maimings of US troops — who purportedly were in Jordan — no doubt meddling in cross-border Syria, where everyone lawfully minded knows they don't belong — the Pentagon said this:



DEPUTY [Pentagon] PRESS SECRETARY SABRINA SINGH: Good afternoon, everyone. Just a few things at the top, and then I'd be glad to take your questions.


As you know, yesterday, three U.S. servicemembers were killed and dozens of personnel were injured from a one-way attack unmanned aerial system that impacted a U.S. military facility located in northeastern Jordan near the Syrian border.


The names of those soldiers who lost their lives were Sergeant William Rivers, Specialist Kennedy Sanders and Specialist Breonna Moffett, all of whom were assigned to the 718th Engineer Company, a U.S. Army Reserve unit based out of Fort Moore, Georgia.


These three fallen heroes were deployed to Jordan in support of Operation Inherent Resolve and the international coalition working to ensure the lasting defeat of ISIS.


We know that Iran certainly plays a role with these groups, they arm and equip and fund these groups.


I don't have more to share on -- terms of an intelligence assessment on if leaders in Iran were directing this attack, but what I can tell you is that we know these groups are supported by Iran and therefore they do have their fingerprints on this, but I can't tell you more in terms of who directed the attack.


QUESTION: Just to follow up, you said Iran was behind the attack. What does that mean? Have -- have you seen evidence of financing or directing, anything specific (inaudible) not just in -- generally but specifically?


MS. SINGH: So maybe I need to clarify it further from what Lita had mentioned. We know that Iran funds these groups, like Kata'ib Hezbollah. We know that these IRGC-backed militias are the ones responsible for attacks on our troops in Iraq and Syria.


Beyond that, we're -- we're doing an -- intelligence assessments. We don't have -- I don't -- I can't give you today that ...




We just know that Iran funds these groups, like Kata'ib Hezbollah and other groups that have attacked our forces, but I don't have more to share on that -- as a general matter, yes.

In other words, according to Pentagon spokesperson Singh  . . .


. . . we don't know anything specific.


We're just crafting an enthusiastic warmongering narrative against Iran because that's Neocon America's next target for (a probably also losing) war.



Do notice that


The Islamic Resistance in Iraq has claimed responsibility for initiating the attack on the American base. See the below-cited Al Jazeera report.


So, we know who actually attacked our troops. But we just want to go up Causation's Pretended Chain a notch, so that we can set the whole Middle East on fire — again.


Going to the head of this Chain of Doubt will allow us to make the supposedly enormous improvements in planetary wellbeing that we previously accomplished by blasting Iraq, Libya and Yemen to pieces — for no rationally and morally good reasons.



Iran denied having anything direct to do with this attack


From Al Jazeera:



Iran has denied involvement in a drone attack in Jordan that killed three US military personnel and injured dozens of others, state media has reported.


“As we have clearly stated before, the resistance groups in the region are responding [to] the war crimes and genocide of the child-killing Zionist regime and… they do not take orders from the Islamic Republic of Iran,” Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Nasser Kanaani was quoted saying by IRNA on Monday.


“These groups decide and act based on their own principles and priorities as well as the interests of their country and people.”


Kanaani said claims of Iranian involvement were motivated by “specific political goals to reverse the realities of the region” and were “influenced by third parties, including the child-killing Zionist regime”.


Iran’s mission to the United Nations also said in a statement carried by IRNA that Tehran had “no connection and had nothing to do” with the attack, which it blamed on “conflict between US forces and resistance groups in the region”.


The Islamic Resistance in Iraq, an umbrella organisation of Iran-backed armed groups, has claimed responsibility for the attack.

The world's two main Escalators of Mayhem . . .


. . . are Israel and the United States:



Israel being an imperializing racial theocracy — perennially bent on recreating the evils of the Holocaust.


And the neocon-led United States — maniacally representing Satanic avarice and destruction in non-stop action.



Contemplate what would happen . . .


. . . if the rest of the nuclear-armed world held the United States — and its bribe-dispensing master, Zionist Israel — responsible for all the chaos-instigation they provably do.


Armageddon's finalizing fire?



The moral? — Is this how we want our troops used?


Positioning our military brothers, sisters, sons and daughters as imperial bait?


Rather than in actual and more local defense of the American nation's genuine national interests?


I am infuriated whenever US troops are squandered, so as to enrich the cowardly Corporatists and Fat Cats, who run the United States.


Perhaps, you should be, too. As a matter of simple moral principle.
