An Example of U.S. Iraninan Escalation Toward War

Reports from January 11 th: U.S. Arrests Iranians in their Consulate:

Reports from January 12th U.S. Embassy attacked in Athens.

How are these stories related? I believe the Iranians fired the shot at the U.S. embassy in Athens. It was a message that they will respond in kind. They needed to do this outside of Iraq in order to demonstrate that it was the iraninans and not Iraqis fighting Americans. This is typical of how nations operate. They send messages to each other. These are violent messages.

U.S. Arrests Iranians in their Consulate:

BAGHDAD, Iraq - The Iraqi foreign minister said today that the five Iranians detained by U.S.-led forces in Kurdish-controlled northern Iraq were working in a liaison office that had government approval and was in the process of being approved as a consulate.

Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, a Kurd, also said U.S. forces tried to seize more people at the airport in Irbil, 220 miles north of Baghdad, prompting a confrontation with Kurdish troops guarding the facility that was resolved without casualties.

U.S. Embassy attacked in Athens.

Attackers have fired a rocket at the US embassy compound in the centre of the Greek capital, Athens.

The rocket, fired from street level into the front of the embassy, caused minor damage to the building but no-one was injured.

The US envoy condemned the "very serious attack", as fire engines and police cordoned off the area.

Greece's Public Order Minister Vyron Polydoras said it was "very likely" a domestic group was behind the attack.

He said police were investigating claims that a left-wing radical group, Revolutionary Struggle, was responsible.

The final sentence that the Revolutional Struggle group is responsible for the attack on the U.S. embassy is probably a lie.

These are not coincidences.
