Iran is a shit that kills young girls for wanting rights, but if one is being intellectually honest one must recognize that saying a group is ‘Iran-backed’ is neither an automatic indictment of the group’s existence, nor its goals. As I see it, global capitalism was ignoring and assisting a genocide. Some people took issue with that and either blockaded things or engaged in military reprisal (both areas where the US has a great deal of experience). If you can’t be right, airstrike 😄
The issues that the transatlantic consensus and therefore their proxies and clients are having is that they are dependent upon a fiendishly complex global capitalist system where one thing going wrong can crash entire economies, they placed themselves on the wrong side of what is a growing anti-colonialist sentiment around the world, particularly in the Middle East, and the overlords grew so accustomed to systemic lies and airstrikes as solutions to everything that they forgot how to run empires.
