Iran-Contra affair

The Iran-Contra affair was a media ritual of the news industry (Time magazine), during the presidency of Ronald Reagan, that lasted from 1985 to 1987.

1985 was year 15 the Devil, 22 years after the JFK ritual. Pluto (dark secrets, communism, crashes) was in Scorpio (lies, betrayal). The US supplied arms to Khomeini government of Iran (Pahlavi-Pallavicini dynasty), despite a weapon embargo, to fund the Contra's in Nicaragua. The embargo started after Iranian students took 52 Americans hostage (Pluto: abduction, Cyrus Vance Scroll and Key, married to Grace Elsie Sloane, subject of movie Argo =Neptune cinema in Capricorn) and Ronald Reagan claimed to continue the same policy (Scorpio: lies and betrayal).

In 1996 jesuit Jerome Ceppos (Mercury News) published Gary Webb's 'Dark Alliance' CIA smuggled cocain and caused the crack cocain epidemic, Ricky Ross, Oscar Danilo Blandon. It was given extra press by Robert Parry, Dianne Feinstein (CFR, TC), Maxine Waters and The NY Times.

The book was used to cause outrage in African-American communities in South Central (used by Jay-z, mythology of American Dream rags-to-riches story of succesfull black drug dealers as hero/police as hypocritical, Ricky Ross sued Rick Ross and Jay-z as president of Def Jam). In the late 80's the media focused on Gangster Rap (N.W.A., Dr Dre, Ice-T,..). Webb wrote an autobiography with Cathy Scott (LA Times, The NY Times). The story of Gary Webb was made into Hollywood movie Kill the Messenger (Mercury the messenger) with Jeremy Renner and Andy Garcia.

The media ritual was closed when actor Ronald Reagan adressed the nation in a tv speech on 3/4/1987. At the end of the docosade the Berlin wall was demolished, west and east united (Aeon).
