Bolton’s allegation against Iran psychological op: Academic

US National Security Advisor John Bolton is resorting to psychological operation against the Islamic Republic of Iran when he claims Tehran was behind recent mysterious attacks on commercial vessels off the coast of Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates, says a commentator.

Speaking at a press conference in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday, Bolton alleged that the May 12 incident had been caused by Iranian naval mines, without providing any evidence to substantiate his claim.

David Yaghoubian, a professor of history at California State University San Bernardino, told Press TV on Wednesday that Bolton is using “psychological operations or PSYOPs,”  because “he has absolutely no evidence” to prove this allegation.

“What we are really seeing is this sort of desperate and pathetic and nonsensical attempt to actually create a policy where there is no effective policy,” Yaghoubian said.
