US-UK backed Terror In Ahvaz, Tehran

(Wikipedia) – On June, 12, 2005 terror attacks occurred in Ahwaz; four bombs exploded killing at least 11 people and wounding more than 87 others, days before the presidential election. One of the bombs exploded outside the governor-general's headquarters. Two went off near government offices and the fourth exploded near the home of a local state television executive. Two hours later, a bomb exploded in the capital Tehran, killing two people. Three other bombs were defused.
"These terrorists have been trained under the umbrella of the Americans in Iraq," The Iranian top national security official Ali Agha Mohammadi said.
UK, US involvement
The oil-rich Khuzestan Province, which is home to about two million ethnic Arabs, has been rocked by a wave of unrest in April 2005. Iran accused British army forces across the border in southern Iraq of co-operating with bombers who carried out January's attacks in Ahvaz. The UK Foreign Office rejected the allegation.
In the months after the June 2005 attacks, government officials and the pro-government media alleged that the UK, US, Canada, Saudi Arabia and the Shell Oil Company all had a role in the bombings.
Following the October attacks, the head of the judiciary for Khuzestan Province, Seyyed Khalil Akbar al-Sadat, blamed "British spies," while the conservative Kayhan Newspaper claimed the terrorists were "British soldiers." Deputy Interior Minister Mohammad Hossein Mousapour told state-run According to Mehr News Agency, "Most probably those involved in the explosion were British agents who were involved in the previous incidents in Ahvaz and Khuzestan."
The British Embassy in Tehran denied any responsibility in a statement released after the attacks: "There has been speculation in the past about alleged British involvement in Khuzestan. We reject these allegations. Any linkage between the British Government and these terrorist outrages is completely without foundation."
Various officials repeated the claim of British involvement, repeating that they had reliable intelligence and confessions from those arrested after the attacks.
U.S. agents have allegedly been working in Iran with anti-government groups. According to Seymour Hersh in the April, 17, 2006 issue of The New Yorker Magazine: "Teams of American combat troops have been ordered into Iran, under cover, to collect targeting data and to establish contact with anti-government ethnic-minority groups."
The general consensus for military aggression against Iran within the American ruling establishment is driven by the same interests that provided bipartisan support for the war on Iraq. As a “high ranking diplomat” told Hersh, “The real issue is who is going to control the Middle East and its oil in the next ten years.”
The hunger to plunder Iran's natural resources and the satanic greed for power behind the Corporate Military Complex in the US and their European puppet states has been the primary reason for instability and insecurity in the Middle East.
