THE PLOT TO ATTACK IRAN

How the CIA and the Deep State Have Conspired to Vilify Iran

by Kovalik, Dan

Iran, once known as Persia, is one of the oldest nations on earth. It has a rich history and a unique culture, and is bordered by seven countries, the Caspian Sea, and the Persian Gulf. It is literally the intersection of many countries and many worlds. It has a population of eighty million people and occupies a space nearly the size of Alaska, the largest US state; it is the seventeenth largest country in the world. Over the past century, Iran's greatest resource, and at the same time its greatest curse, has been its oil. For it is oil that has caused the United States and other world powers to systematically attempt to destroy Iran.

Dan Kovalik exposes what Americans have known about the Islamic Republic is largely based on propaganda. The 1953 coup that deposed the democratically-elected prime minister for a US-selected shah, sold to average American citizens as a necessity to protect democracy and guard against communism. In truth, it was America's lust for Iranian oil and power that installed the tyrannical shah. The Iranian hostage crisis that miraculously ended with Ronald Reagan's inauguration as president, evidence shows that Reagan negotiated with the hostage-takers to hold the hostages until his inauguration.

Using recently declassified documents and memos, as well as first-hand experience of the country, Dan Kovalik will change the way you think about Iran, and especially what you think of US interference there. Learn how the United States vilifies its enemies, and accuses them of unspeakable horror to mask its own terrible crimes. Not only does this illuminating and important book delve into the current incendiary situation, but it also predicts what could happen next, and what needs to be done before it is too late.


Dan Kovalik is the author of critically-acclaimed "The Plot to Scapegoat Russia", and has been a labor and human rights lawyer since graduating from Columbia Law School in 1993. He has represented plaintiffs in ATS cases arising out of egregious human rights abuses in Colombia. He received the David W. Mills Mentoring Fellowship from Stanford Law School, has written extensively for the Huffington Post and Counterpunch, and has lectured throughout the world.
