US trying to break down Iran through propaganda, says British analyst
London, IRNA – The United States interest in operating soft war apparatus against Iran is to break down “this potential superpower and a major obstacle for their aggressive imperialistic growth”, a British analyst said Tuesday.
“That is why they [Americans] went to war in Iraq and Afghanistan to compete with Iran...[over] trillions of oil and gas dollars,” Peter Eyre said when asked by IRNA to comment on intensified US propaganda war against Iran.
The US Congress has authorized the (Barack) Obama administration to spend 55 million dollars on a “soft war” project against Iran under the guise of what it has called the “Victims of Iranian Censorship Act” also known as the “VOICE Act”.
Under the legislation, the US government has been instructed to bankroll anti-Iran broadcasters such as Radio Farda and VOA Persian service.
Eyre said such a strategy was overtly used during the Cold War era when “vast sums of money” were set aside to establish overseas broadcasts and hire multilingual operators to spread their own propaganda.
“In the UK, for example, the BBC has always had a strong presence in most countries and the same exists with regards to the Voice of America,” he said.
According to the VOICE Act, 30 million dollars will be expended on expanding Farsi language broadcasting into Iran by Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty’s Radio Farda and the Voice of America’s Persian News Network—all are recognised as the propaganda mouthpiece of the US government against Iran.
Some 25 million dollars more will be also allocated to other psych-ops against Iran.
Eyre said although President Obama has initiated this measure to promote propaganda against Iran, the group behind, and probably responsible for this, could well have been “AIPAC and other pro-Israeli lobby groups”.
“...Most of the Western Media is controlled by a small group of very rich and influential people. Once such example is that of Rupert Murdoch whose father Sir Keith Murdoch married into a very wealthy Jewish family, acquired his wealth and moved forward into having significant control of the world's media,” Eyre said,
referring to Murdoch's dominance on global media as Times Newspaper Holdings, News Corp, Ltd. and the British Sky Broadcasting, to name a few.
According to Eyre, Murdoch has continued to exercise “incredible leverage to manipulate almost any world political party” through the media.
“His support for Israel is second to none and he remains hostile towards any Arab or Islamic cause. He has the ability to support many of the pro-Israeli lobbyists around the world and raise significant funds for any cause that fits in with his own political views,” Eyre added.
He pointed out that Murdoch-owned media tend to hide the truth by deciding as to “what the public can or cannot see. You can only hear what they want you to hear.”
“The conflict in Gaza was a typical example of media control and also the big issue of the West's use of weapons containing uranium components. Basically you cannot read about the truth in such media.”
He added that the United States is “pumping millions of dollars” into waging propaganda war against Iran because it is a “potential superpower” and a major obstacle for their “aggressive imperialistic growth” in the Middle East.
