US-Iran Confrontation in the Gulf?

Link to Reese Erlich’s video/website via IPS’s, “US-Iran Confrontation in the Gulf?“:

Erlich is a foreign correspondent who has reported frequently from Iran and author of the new book The Iran Agenda: The Real Story of U.S. Policy and the Middle East Crisis. He said today: “The U.S. has a long history of sailing into Iranian waters and otherwise provoking Iran. Remember on July 3, 1988, the USS Vincennes shot down an unarmed Iranian passenger plane and the U.S. tried to cover up the incident. In that context, the U.S. version of events must be carefully examined. It seems highly unlikely that Iran planned to blow up U.S. naval ships and precipitate a major incident or even war. If the U.S. attempts to make propaganda points based on the incident, it will reflect a new truculence coming out of Washington.”
