[144]

https://youtu.be/q5rgHrbWa7U I invited Scott Horton on to the show to talk about two chapters of history where even the established history is too crazy to believe: the Iran-Contra Affair and the CIA's support for the Mujahideen in 1980s Afghanistan. We also discuss the Iraq Wars, the Iraq-Iran War, Gary Webb, some CIA drug running, and touch on the John Birch Society.

The Irony of Iran/Israel Tensions

There’s a huge irony that during the 1980s, when Iran talked the most shit, Israel armed them.  However, later in the 1990s, when Iran’s rhetoric moderated, Israel pressured America to increase sanctions.  How & why did this irony come about?   Some say this irony can be placed on Iran for sabotaging the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians by arming extremist terrorist groups that objected to the Oslo agreements. However, how did this tension first begin?  What is the root cause of it?  Who is to blame for the modern conflict and failed peace talks with the...

Why Iran Hates Israel, if it’s NOT their land?!

Iran is a thousand miles away from Israel.  And unlike the Palestinians, Iran doesn’t claim Israeli land.   So why does Shiite Iran arm Sunni Palestinians, when their enemies are Sunni? The Palestinians are predominately Sunni Muslim, which is the Arab group that Iran is at war with!   If you are confused, then this episode is for you.  We’ll dive into the history of Israel arming Iran secretly during the Iran-Contra scandal.  And how that transitioned into modern relations. This is based on the book, Treacherous Alliance: The Secret Dealings of Israel, Iran, and the United...
