“US media makes Americans fear the intentions of Iran”
Dr. Wedin says the presidential elections in Iran could complicate America’s aim to wage war on Iran.
“If it goes with [Mir-Hossein] Mosavi it will make things more difficult for Washington and Israel to pursue a war-like policy towards Iran. Last week Daniel Pipes, one of the major neo-conservatives here [in the US] said quite openly that he wanted [Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad to win. If we go back to the presidential election of 2005 [in Iran], [American president George] Bush attempted to influence that election in the direction of pushing Ahmadinejad into office by telling the [Iranian] reformists: in effect it makes no difference if you go, everything is rigged, you might as well stay home.”
