Two sides to every headline

Iran, Romney & Obama – A conspiracy to improve popularity?

Today the Iranian government is widely reported as firing many missiles in their naval maneuvers in the Strait of Hormuz.

Is this excerise carefully timed to coincide with the GOP primaries in Iowa with the goal of discrediting any presidential favourite who claims to want to work  in peace with the Iranians?

It would not be the first time that it has been alleged that the US government has worked in cooperation with the Iranian government against the interests of US citizens with the goal of manipulating the polticial landscape in the USA.

The delay of the release of the hostages in the US Embassy in Tehran was beneficial both to the Iranain regime and to the incoming Reagan adminstration.

Could the timing of these missile tests be intended to rubbish one of the main favorites for the presidency of the USA in 2012, to build a stronger case for the bombing of Iran and to increase the popularity of the ruling party in Iran in the face of unpopular sanctions?
