WHAT IS THE ROLE OF IRAN?

[NOTE: On March 24, The New York Times published “China Urges New Money Reserve to Replace Dollar,” which began with the following: “In another indication that China is growing increasingly concerned about holding huge dollar reserves, the head of its central bank has called for the eventual creation of a new international currency reserve to replace the dollar.” The next day, the London Telegraph published “U.S. Backing for World Currency Stuns Markets,” which began: “U.S. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner shocked global markets by revealing that Washington is ‘quite open’ to Chinese proposals for the gradual development of a global reserve currency run by the International Monetary Fund. The dollar plunged instantly against the euro, yen, and sterling as the comments flashed across trading screens. David Bloom, currency chief at HSBC, said the apparent policy shift amounts to an earthquake in geo-finance. ‘The mere fact that the U.S. Treasury Secretary is even entertaining thoughts that the dollar may cease being the anchor of the global monetary system has caused consternation,’ he said. Mr. Geithner later qualified his remarks, insisting that the dollar would remain the ‘world’s dominant reserve currency… for a long period of time,’ but the seeds of doubt have been sown.”
Remember, the cover of The Economist for January 9, 1988 showed a picture of “The Phoenix” as the global currency planned for 2018 A.D. I put this information in my book, Now Is the Dawning of the New Age New World Order published in 1991, and the term New World Order again is being used today to describe the current situation. On ABC’s evening news for April 2, Charles Gibson said to Fred Bergsten (Peterson Institute for International Economics): “It was extraordinary to hear the British prime minister and the French president at the end of this (G20 meeting) almost suggesting that this represents a New World Order. Does it?” And Bergsten replied: “In a very important sense it does represent a New World Order. The G20 includes five countries from the Americas, five from Asia, five from Europe, and five from elsewhere. It’s the true globalization of economic decision making.” Bergsten also noted that the G20 meeting “tells our country and our people that the world crisis… is being effectively responded to by global policy.” And establishing “global policy” is the first step in the Power Elite’s (PE) establishment of a World Socialist Government.
The Obama administration has announced its desire eventually to abolish all nuclear weapons in the world. Assuming Obama has any intelligence at all, why would he want to return to the days of World War II where an evil aggressor like Hitler can invade other nations without fear of serious immediate consequences? Think of an Asia where an expansionist Communist China ruled by dictators decides to be aggressive (e.g., against Taiwan) and doesn’t mind losing millions of its own people because it has 1.3 billion of them. And the only weapons that could be used against them would be conventional ones that can inflict only limited damage over a period of time. And think of a sparsely populated nation such as Israel with only conventional weapons to use against hostile Arab nations with very large populations and armies. Doesn’t Obama’s desired world free of nuclear weapons make possible the Book of Revelation’s reference to Iraq’s Euphrates River drying up, making way for a massive ground assault from the East in the Battle of Armageddon?]
Mike Evans has written a new book, Jimmy Carter: The Liberal Left and World Chaos, which devotes a great deal of attention to President Carter and Iran. Perhaps the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran on November 4, 1979 did as much as anything else to prevent the re-election of Jimmy Carter as president. But what most people don’t realize is that crises like this are manipulated by the PE to fulfill their ultimate plan for a World Socialist Government.
I’ve written about PE members like Cecil Rhodes and David Rockefeller many times before, and two of Jimmy Carter’s most significant foreign policy mentors were David Rockefeller and Rhodes scholar Hedley Donovan (editor-in-chief of TIME). After their meeting with Carter in London, Rockefeller named Carter as the Democratic gubernatorial representative to his Trilateral Commission (TC), which was established in 1973. According to Laurence Shoup in Trilateralism: The Trilateral Commission and Elite Planning for World Management (edited by Holly Sklar), membership on the TC assured Carter of favorable press coverage in his 1976 run for the presidency.
Once Carter became president, he selected Rhodes scholar Stansfield Turner as head of the CIA. According to Evans, Iran’s leader Mohammed Reza (Shah) Pahlavi believed the CIA was behind the unrest in his country during this time. After all, the CIA and the British under Operation Ajax in August 1953 had helped revolutionaries depose elected leader Muhammad Mossadegh and install the Shah. This was done with the help of the Ayatollah Seyyed Abolqassam Kashani, mentor of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
Khomeini had British connections, and the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) opposed the Shah. Evans relates that Iran-expert Uri Lubrani told him the American Ambassador to Iran (1977-79) William Sullivan “had little experience in Iran [and] was very much reliant on Tony Parsons, the British Ambassador.” Parsons attended Oxford University’s Balliol College in 1949, and Reginald Baliol Brett was one of three individuals closest to Rhodes in his secret Society of the Elect “to take the government of the whole world.” In an interview with Evans on March 28, 2008, Farah Pahlavi (wife of the Shah) said Mrs. Ferdinand Marcos sent her a message saying: “Marcos told me to tell you that wherever Sullivan goes, he creates a revolution.”
Farah Pahlavi knew Sullivan was in contact with many groups in Iran who were opposed to the Shah and wanted to replace him with Khomeini. The PE liked Khomeini, who was a Fascist according to author David Pryce-Jones. This is because the PE plans to create a techno-feudal Fascist New World Order on its way to a World Socialist Government.
Evans presents the view that Carter administration officials simply missed the threat of Khomeini’s rise to power, but I believe it’s just too improbable that they overlooked his references to the U.S. as the “Great Satan” and his urging his followers in the early 1970s to assassinate Americans.
The importance of Carter’s National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski (ZB) in all of this also shouldn’t be ignored. ZB in his 1970 book Between Two Ages had praised Marxism, and in 1973 David Rockefeller made ZB the first director of his TC. This was the same year (1973) Rockefeller in The New York Times praised Communist China’s ruthless Chairman Mao. For the PE, Communism serves as the antithesis of Capitalism in its plan to synthesize both into a World Socialist Government.
During the Carter presidency, ZB was duplicitous regarding the Shah. Jim Hoagland of The Washington Post in “Carter Set To Tell European Allies He Fully Backs Shah” (January 5, 1979) related that in a briefing by ZB, reporters were told “President Carter will reiterate his support of the Shah.” However, when Carter met with these allies, French President Valery Giscard d’Estaing in his Le Pouvour et la Vie said: “The President Jimmy Carter told us suddenly that the United States had decided not to support the regime of the Shah anymore.”
ZB urged dropping support for the Shah, instead opting for a military coup by those supporting the Shah. This was also the position of the CIA. Without the support of the U.S., the Shah’s fate was sealed and he departed Iran on January 17, 1979.
According to Evans, President George Bush’s and President Barack Obama’s Secretary of Defense Robert Gates participated in a meeting with ZB during the Khomeini takeover in Iran, and Gates related that ZB “outlined the U.S. stance regarding the ouster of the Shah and Khomeini’s new Islamic Revolution very succinctly: Acceptance of the Revolution; recognition of Khomeini’s government; supplies of arms contracted by the Shah delivered to Khomeini; and a future working relationship.”
This was all part of ZB’s “Green Belt” or Pan-Islamic strategy to create a buffer against Soviet southward expansion. Khomeini wanted to be the leader of the Muslim world, and Evans reveals that a former naval intelligence officer and CIA operative informed him “that the U.S. government wrote checks to Khomeini in increments of approximately $150 million.” However, the PE wants no national leader, including Khomeini, to become too strong, as that could pose problems in achieving their ultimate goal. Thus, one can understand why the PE’s military enforcer (the U.S.) would supply Iraq and Iran with the ingredients with which to make chemical weapons of mass destruction to use against each other. And Evans even acknowledges “there are those who believe the U.S. may have subtly encouraged the Iran-Iraq conflict.”
Other examples of how the PE limits the strength of any one nation include the Milner Group’s (Lord Alfred Milner carried out Rhodes’ plan after the latter’s death) Sir Percy Cox as British High Commissioner in late November 1922 drawing up what became the Iraq-Kuwait border, which deliberately did not allow Iraq access to the sea so its influence in the Persian Gulf would be limited. Similarly, the British comprised Nigeria (and other African nations) of competing groups. And the recent stalemate of Russia and Georgia (with U.S. support) over South Ossetia was another example of national power limitation.

Regarding the Middle East conflict between Israel and Palestinian Arabs, Lord Milner told the British House of Lords in 1923 that Jews could be the majority population in the region west of the Jordan River, but the region “must never become a Jewish state.” Relevant to Palestine, British Mandate Administrator Herbert Samuel was a member of the Milner Group, and in 1921 he appointed Hajj (Muhamud Effendi) Amin Al-Husseini as Mufti (interpreter/judge of Muslim law) and then head political administrator of Arab Palestine. This was after Al-Husseini came in fourth in a vote after Samuel pardoned him for murder. Al-Husseini had killed many Jews, but was pardoned by Samuel, who was himself a liberal Jew. Why? This was because the British PE members led by the Milner Group (including Samuel) played different factions (Jews and Arabs) against each other in order that no one group would become too powerful.
