Yesterday morning on FAUX News Network, the morning stooges were gleefully talking about how our military could drop this big old "bunker buster" bomb on selected targets in Iran. We all know how well that has worked in the past. Well, what the heck, they're just collateral damage.
Greta Van Susteren (FAUX) seems to be unable to find any new guests because she constantly has war monger, John Bolton, as her guest. Bolton's sole purpose in life seems to be that we must "bomb Iran now." Of course, that useful fool has a powerful ally named John McCain. Remember when Sen. McCain gave his famous, "Bomb, bomb, bomb, Iran" jingle? Yeah, real funny.
How easy it is to wave the flag for war when one hears this constant chant to "bomb Iran," because if we don't, Iran will obliterate Israel by dinner time. I would ask you: Is anyone giving a thought to just exactly what this means in real time and the consequences?
New lies plastered over old wall paper and being hyped by writers all over the media: October 4, 2009. The Coming War with Iran. When not if. "War with Iran is now inevitable. The only question is: Will it happen sooner or later? Tehran's recent missile tests and war games suggest that the apocalyptic mullahs have reached the same conclusion."
Puppets of the new world order elites automatically smear anyone who questions our foreign policy with regards to Israel as "anti-Semitic." Of course, most people don't even know what that label means other than it's the kiss of death for politicians and journalists who are trying to be rational and fair in making an informed decision. Just ask the authors of 'The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy' by John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt.
I read every word of that book. It is fully footnoted and scholarly. There is no "anti-Semitic" rhetoric, only facts. We the people have every right to question foreign policy of our government regardless of which countries are involved. That should not be a sin or reason to destroy someone's reputation. It is our duty because a constitutionally declared war should always be the last choice.
Someone sent me this link to a 50 minute video who wanted to let me know it was "anti-Semitic filth." I watched the entire documentary; a bit difficult because a little bit is in Dutch. However, the guests spoke English: John Mearsheimer, former chief of staff to United States Secretary of State Colin Powell, Lawrence Wilkerson, cofounder of the Christians United for Israel lobbying group, John Hagee, neoconservative Richard Perle and historian Tony Judt. It was quite an eye opener if you listen to what is said by Wilkerson in some very candid moments. Second, Judt is Jewish as is Kenneth Roth of Human Rights Watch. A bit hard to smear them with that ugly label, yet that's exactly what has been done to both of them for simply expressing their views.
How long has this drum beating been going on?
August 3, 2005. Estimate Revised on When Iran Could Make Nuclear Bomb. "Completing their first full-scale assessment of Iran in four years, American intelligence agencies have concluded that Iran is "determined to build nuclear weapons" but is not expected to possess such weapons until the early or middle years of the next decade, administration officials said Tuesday....
"An administration official, asking not to be identified because administration officials are not authorized to discuss intelligence matters, said that, intentionally or not, the new assessment appeared to play into the hands of those who argue that there is some time to try to persuade Iran to change its ways, and no need for a confrontation right now."
January 12, 2006. Iran's Next Steps: Final Tests and the Construction of a Uranium Enrichment Plant. "Though some analysts at the IAEA believe that Iran could assemble centrifuges quicker, other analysts, including those in the US intelligence community, appear to believe that a date of 2009 would be overly optimistic. They believe that Iran is likely to encounter technical difficulties that would significantly delay bringing a centrifuge plant into operation. Factors causing delay include Iran having trouble making so many centrifuges in that time period or it taking longer than expected to overcome difficulties in operating the cascades or building a centrifuge plant."
November 2007. Office of the Director of National Intelligence (US) "We judge with moderate confidence that the earliest possible date Iran would be technically capable of producing enough highly enriched uranium (HEU) for a weapon is late 2009, but that this is very unlikely... G. We judge with high confidence that Iran will not be technically capable of producing and reprocessing enough plutonium for a weapon before about 2015."
December 3, 2007. U.S. report: Iran halted nuclear weapons drive in 2003. "Iran halted its secret effort to develop a nuclear weapon four years ago and doesn't appear to have restarted the project, a comprehensive new U.S. intelligence report said Monday. Iran's decision to stop the program in mid-2003 indicates that it's "less determined" to acquire nuclear weapons and "more vulnerable" to international pressure than U.S. intelligence agencies had previously believed, the U.S. intelligence community said."
14 December 2007. Iran hasn't a nuclear weapons programme. "An article by Dafna Linzer in The Washington Post on 27 March 2005, entitled Past Arguments Don't Square With Current Iran Policy , describes US nuclear policy towards Iran in the 1970s, a policy that was very different to today's. Ironically, it was pursued by some of the individuals who held jobs in the present Bush administration....
“After balking initially, President Gerald R. Ford signed a directive in 1976 offering Tehran the chance to buy and operate a US-built reprocessing facility for extracting plutonium from nuclear reactor fuel. The deal was for a complete ‘nuclear fuel cycle’ – reactors powered by and regenerating fissile materials on a self-sustaining basis.” But, as Dafna Linzer says, Iran was an ally of the US then." [Emphasis mine]
January 10, 2009. U.S. Rejected Aid for Israeli Raid on Iranian Nuclear Site. WASHINGTON — "President Bush deflected a secret request by Israel last year for specialized bunker-busting bombs it wanted for an attack on Iran's main nuclear complex and told the Israelis that he had authorized new covert action intended to sabotage Iran's suspected effort to develop nuclear weapons, according to senior American and foreign officials".
March 01, 2009. Gates: Iran not close to a nuclear bomb. "There seems to be a little confusion among the US military elites about Iran's capacity to build a nuclear bomb. Gates says that Iran is not close to building a bomb so the Obamessiah still has time charm the Muhallacracy into not building nukes. But Adm. Mike Mullen, head of the U.S. military Joint Chiefs of Staff said that Iran presently has enough uranium to build a bomb. Which is it then?"
April 18, 2009 - less than one month after Gates says Iran is not close to having a nuclear bomb, we see this headline:
Israel stands ready to bomb Iran's nuclear sites. "The Israeli military is preparing itself to launch a massive aerial assault on Iran's nuclear facilities within days of being given the go-ahead by its new government.....He added that it was unlikely that Israel would carry out the attack without receiving at least tacit approval from America, which has struck a more reconciliatory tone in dealing with Iran under its new administration." That is exactly what Mearsheimer and Walt addressed in their book.
July 4, 2009. Amano: No hard evidence Iran seeking nukes. "There is no concrete evidence that Iran is attempting to develop nuclear weapons, incoming International Atomic Energy Agency chief Yukiya Amano said Friday, in his first public comments on Iran's nuclear program."
July 15, 2009. Iran Is Years Away from a Nuclear Weapon. "Intelligence agencies are in no doubt that Iran wants to develop a nuclear bomb. Under ideal conditions, Tehran could even carry out a first bomb test by 2010. However, it still lacks the necessary know-how and resources to build a deployable weapon."
October 4, 2009. UN praise for Iran over nuclear inspections. "Mohammed ElBaradei, head of the UN nuclear watchdog, has praised Iran for setting a date to open its newly disclosed uranium enrichment plant to international inspection."
The very next day, headlines say a secret UN report says Iran could build an A-bomb. Could? Would. Maybe. Suspected. All those words being used for years to justify bombing Iran.
Let's hurry up and drop bombs on Iran because Israel wants us to be the aggressor country. Well, if that's not a good excuse, let's hurry up and drop bombs on Iran because Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is a gas bag who makes ugly, inflammatory statements. Kind of like Jiang Zemin, who headed up the Communist Party in China when he celebrated the attacks against America on 9/11. I don't hear Israel or anyone else calling for the US to bomb selected targets in China where their nukes are stored.
Odd thing Ahmadinejad's family changed their Hebrew name, but we need to remember that Ahmadinejad, who should shut the pie hole in his face, does not have the authority under Iran's governmental system to do much more than spout stupidity. Foreign policy, their armed forces and any nuclear policy is under the absolute control of their "Supreme Leader." Nor, does the usurper in the White House have any authority to drop bombs on a country which has not attacked America, but rather as an accommodation to another foreign power. A war must be declared by Congress and that is written in stone in the U.S. Constitution.
One thing people must realize and that is there are other players involved here with big stakes: oil and money. I wrote about this on January 6, 2006, when the cacophony of war mongers were drowning out reason in their zeal to bomb Iran:
"According to China's official Xinhua news agency, the two countries signed a memorandum of understanding committing Sinopec to buy 250 million tons of liquefied natural gas from Iran over 30 years. Iran will also export 150,000 barrels of crude per day to China after Sinopec has developed the Yadavaran field, Xinhua reported. It valued the deal at $70 billion. Iranian news service IRNA said the memorandum granted China the right to explore and develop the Yadavaran oil field, and provided for LNG sales of 10 million tons a year. Iran supplied roughly 13 percent of China's oil imports in 2003, according to official figures quoted by Xinhua.
"China has been experiencing blackouts for years and it will get worse. The Washington Post report gave a good overview of the problem for the communists on July 15, 2005: With so much competition for assets, China has pursued deals with international pariah states that are off-limits to Western oil companies because of sanctions, security concerns or the threat of bad publicity. China National Petroleum is the largest shareholder in a consortium running much of the oil patch in Sudan, a country accused by the United States of genocide in its western region of Darfur.
"Last year, China signed a $70 billion oil and gas purchase agreement with Iran, undercutting efforts by the United States and Europe to isolate Teheran and force it to give up plans for nuclear weapons. If Cnooc acquires Unocal, it would have gas fields and a pipeline in Burma, whose operation by the U.S. company has been criticized by human-rights groups.
"No matter if it's rogue's oil or a friend's oil, we don't care," said an energy adviser to the central government who spoke on the condition he not be identified, citing the threat of government disciplinary action. "Human rights? We don't care. We care about oil. Whether Iran would have nuclear weapons or not is not our business. America cares, but Iran is not our neighbor. Anyone who helps China with energy is a friend."
I believe Iran's nuclear threat is nothing but another manufactured lie. September 16, 2009. Intelligence Agencies Say No New Nukes in Iran. Secret updates to White House challenge European and Israeli assessments. "The U.S. intelligence community is reporting to the White House that Iran has not restarted its nuclear-weapons development program, two counter proliferation officials tell NEWSWEEK. U.S. agencies had previously said that Tehran halted the program in 2003."
Israel has nuclear weapons paid for by the fruits of your labor, stolen by an outlaw Congress who has no authority to give away our money to ANY foreign government. Do you think the people of Israel, Pakistan or Russia would stand for their governments giving hundreds of BILLIONS of their hard earned paychecks to the U.S. in "foreign aid"? When pig's fly.
If attacked, Israel has the right to defend themselves as do all sovereign countries. But, what would Iran gain from firing a nuclear weapon at Israel? Nothing. It would invite death and destruction. Would Iran lob a nuclear weapon at these united States of America knowing we would carpet bomb them before the week is out? Doesn't seem to be a wise choice now does it?
There are people who have very legitimate concerns that Iran might/could sell a nuke to another rogue country like Syria who would then bomb Israel or the U.S. But, I ask you: what would any of those countries have to gain? Five minutes of fame and decades of pain and misery after the US or Israel strikes back? Doesn't sound like a good plan to me.
How about sanctions against a country that is no threat to these united States of America? September 15, 2009. "The U.S. should begin preparing crippling sanctions on Iran and publicly make clear that a military strike is possible should the Iranian government press ahead with its nuclear effort, a bipartisan policy group said."
Do Americans have any idea what US sanctions did to the Iraqi people? It should turn your stomach.   By what right do we have to destroy sovereign countries and cause the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocents who have not attacked us? October 4, 2009: Time for Congress to make average Iranians suffer. The situation in the Middle East is complicated because the players make it so. This article, Russian-Iranian Relations: Functional Dysfunction, is a classic example.
Might I suggest people read 'A Foreign Policy of Freedom: Peace Commerce and Honest Friendship' by Ron Paul? Yeah, that nut, Congressman Ron Paul, who has tried for 35 years to get rid of the FED while being laughed at by his cronies in Congress. Well, those same pompous, ignorant asses have now signed onto his bill to audit the FED, so maybe Dr. Paul isn't so crazy after all.
Without question, the US has superior fire power and a military equipped to wipe out the world. That doesn't mean we use it to destroy other nations. Ron Paul's book isn't about cowering before our enemies or appeasement. It's about common sense and the wrong direction our policy of foreign intervention has been for decades -- all to appease special interests. Not for the best interests of America or even countries on the other end of our bombs, but for those who profit from war and destruction. Considering the mountain of lies dished out to we the people about Iraq and 9/11, how can we believe so many variations of could, maybe, likely as a reason to mindlessly bomb Iran - especially without a constitutional declaration of war?
For my part, I have called my "representative" in Congress and told his staffer: No bombing of Iran. We have NO right to simply drop bombs on that country because of" might," "could" or" likely." There's an old saying: There's no money in the cure, only the treatment. There's no money in peace for military-industrial complexes and arms dealers. Think about it.
