AMERICA WILL NOT ATTACK IRAN
Eugene Narrett, Ph.D
In the age of Machiavelli, whose dominion is completed in the mass media, distraction is one of the primary methods of governance. The principle was familiar to the sophists and has always been essential in war, dueling or chess where it is known as a feint. Attract the attention and energies of the opponent by an assault or show of force or intense concern in one area (or issue) while preparing a critical initiative in another theatre. It is part of the thesis-antithesis-synthesis game by which the outcome is scripted by the State.
Distraction, crises, bread and circuses are theatre from the macrocosm of geopolitics to the ‘off-Broadway of flirting or salary negotiations. Perhaps the greatest macro-distraction of our twilight times, the twentieth century and its sequel was the staged collapse of the Russian Empire/ Soviet Union, the “fall of Communism” and “the end of the cold war” . The godlike Reagan spoke and the wall came a tumblin’ down.
A ‘top ten’ list of such geopolitical feints might be instructive but here I wish to consider one that has taken center stage in the years since the toppling of Saddam Hussein: the ostensibly looming attack by America on the Islamic “Republic” of Iran. The drumbeat for this attack and widespread hysterics about its injustice, waste or effects on our tattered Republic indicate the success of the gamers.
There is unlikely to be any such attack. The perennial regime in Washington and the reign of the mullahs have been effectively allied since 1979 notwithstanding the murder of hundreds of American troops in Lebanon and elsewhere by a branch of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard (Hizbollah).
For twenty-eight years since American and French powers took down the Shah and inserted Khomeini into Iran the Iranians have helped our gamers perform another and in some ways worse Vietnam War. By its nature, the shadowy “War on Terror” (which is a war of terror and subjugation on the peoples on whose behalf it supposedly is fought) cannot be won. In a century we have regressed from the Lusitania and the “War to End all Wars” to a war process in the name of security, a world Security State composed of overlapping “peace and prosperity” zones filled with “security forces.” “War is Peace; Freedom is Slavery; Ignorance is Strength” in a loss of individual thought. In the new world social order, “orthodoxy means not needing to think” an apt description of the cliché-clogged heads of the politically correct who have lost courage, knowledge and thus the ability not only to think and discuss but to empathize . They are pod people prattling endlessly of “difference” but terrified of any unofficial thought, any genuine inquiry and insight which must be identified and anesthetized. Public education has done its job.
The real goals of the carefully modulated rise in tensions between American and Iran are, 1) the expulsion of Jews from the Israeli heartland of Judah, Benjamin, Ephraim and part of Menashe (Judea and Samaria), the consequent separation of all Jews from their holiest sites, the resulting reduction of Judaism to archaism and a demonstration by the powers that the Creator is a myth, His promise reversible; 2) the fragmentation and federative reconfiguration of the Middle East; 3) a giant step toward a new world social order and a world religion of Nature-goddess as its hypnotic and tutelary anesthetic; 4) the full integration, via NATO of America-UNA with the EU, Russia and the Vatican in “one humanitarian space.” These bedfellows are strange but that too fits the twilight times when treachery, deceit, perverse lusts and hate laugh and rule in cynical triumph.
The distraction-game immerses us in a fog of lies and appearances. “Nothing is but what is not” and the disintegration of integrity (post-modernism) is the dogma of the academy, the terror-spectacle of our films, the collapse of our borders and relationships. This is the cult of Culturetainment, the tautly ‘happy face’ masking murder, terror and treachery . The collapse of boundaries and disciplines in every sense of the word, the undoing of the discriminations that are creation (Genesis 1; 17, passim); the undoing of the world and return to chaos define our days from improvised ‘lifestyles’ to weather modification...
This war process (“diplomacy is war by other means”) now heads to Annapolis where as a planned ‘compromise’ Jews may be allowed to remain in the sixth of the old City of Jerusalem they have rebuilt while submitting to expulsion from most of their heart land. The IDF will be allowed some operational latitude to help the NATO-masters protect their investments in infrastructure and technology in the coastal plain. Dialectical attrition with “the non-nation and vile people” foretold by Moses will “justify” the continuing close involvement of the powers in “the cycle of violence in the region,” a cycle they will never allow to be resolved. Thus they fulfill Orwell’s comment on the essence of the Security State: “The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten; the lie became truth.”
In betraying their obligation to the Jews, the British Foreign Office re-ignited jihad as embodied in the career of Amin el Husseini, advisor to Hitler and tutor of Arafat and Abu Mazen (“Mahmoud Abbas,” the Bush administration’s “moderate”). In brutally screwing the Jews out of their homeland and using the UN and world media to vilify their sovereignty and history, the powers “fanned the flames of pan-Islamic nationalism”; in condemning and rolling back every Israeli victory from 1948 they kept jihad simmering, funding and rationalizing it so it was ready to fill the “antithesis” role when the Russian Empire made its scripted collapse, the better to achieve “convergence” with its thesis, the West and dissolve its values of individual responsibility and limited government into the supposed needs of “the human family.”
In 1991, by withholding the IFF codes from the IDF, G.H.W. Bush compelled Israelis to stay in shelters while Saddam shelled their nation. There ensued the abortive strike on Iraq and the Madrid-Oslo process which brought prime antithesis, Arafat from Tunisia to the center of the Promised Land. In 2006, Iran’s proxy in Lebanon showered Israel with rockets for five weeks while State Department clerk, Ehud Olmert refused to mobilize Israel’s reserves (it’s a national-guard army, the model of ours) or mount a significant counterstrike, much less wage a war. A couple of star turns at the UN for Mr. Ahmadinejad and the Annapolis Conference ensued. With Jews repeatedly told to remove to Austria or Alaska, letting any of them remain in the Promised Land becomes a ‘moderate’ position. The pattern of subjugation is clear.
It also shows in the summoning to Washington of Israel’s chief Rabbis to ‘explain the importance of the Temple Mt to the Jewish people’ . This recalls Britain’s Shaw committee of 1928 which resulted in Arabs driving animals amidst praying Jews and then in massive slaughters enabled by the Brits . One does not make a friend defend his existence, identity and history – especially since it is attested by thirty-five centuries of archaeological records from several cultures. Being political appointees of an anti-Jewish client regime, the Rabbis will no doubt yield, with caveats, to the thumbscrews.
The IDF strike September 06 on a Syrian base where missiles were being packed with chemical and nuclear weapons showed that America could demolish Iran’s nuclear capability with minimal loss, if that is what our rulers desired . If Iran was panicky then, the eight ensuing weeks have shown it has little to fear as long as it confines itself to playing the role of complementary pressure-cooker. The focus of America’s NSC continues to be breaking up what remains of Israel and creating another artificial Arab state that will boost the dialectic of jihad and terror and resulting World Security State.
So far from being in a state of true contention with Iran, our government and the Quartet have provided photo ops and aid for Mr. Ahmadinejad. Iran’s missile program did not begin in 2003 or 2004; it was rolling under his “moderate” successor Ali Khamenei of the Alliance for Civilizations and its fellow travelers Maurice Strong and Mikhail Gorbachev who is helping our gamers do perestroika on the world.
Review the cast that collaborated on this script. In the mid-1990s, Clinton Administration officials accepted large sums of money through various fronts of the Chinese government. Chinese “scientists” at our labs in New Mexico took computers full of missile and nose-cone technology which they shared with North Korea. Our leaders squashed investigation into the theft and continue to profess consternation and fear of North Korea’s “prowess” which our diplomats use to raise the status of the UN and its commissions, reports and deadlines. North Korea sends its missiles to Iran where they are upgraded with Russian and German assistance. Now in their third stage of development, a whole series of dialectic conflicts have ensued. Iran threatens to obliterate Israel; its arm, Hizbollah, softens up the target. The Conference at Annapolis will “resolve” the conflict by further preparing the ground for a “Palestinian” State.
Despite mass media chaff, the main target and competitor of Iran is not Israel but the House of Saud. When the Shiite rightly guided one (Mahdi) appears it will be in Mecca to destroy his enemies. Then after a battle near Jerusalem, he will reign in Baghdad. American involvement in Mesopotamia feeds Shiite apocalyptic fantasies, checks the House of Saud while our gamers profess dismay. We have pleased both Shiites and Saudi by crushing their nemesis Saddam in that fragmenting contraption named “Iraq.” It took the British thirty years (1922-51) to try to put it together and it’s been falling apart ever since. Now, at great cost to Americans and our vanishing liberties we are in dialog with jihad and engaged in “nation-building” where the British failed before us.
Skin-deep media ‘coverage’ about Iran invites people worldwide to “blame the Jews,” the target of the charade. Expelling them from their heartland and holiest sites will midwife the Greater Middle East. As Alfred Lord Milner said in June 1923, Israel “must never become a Jewish state.” The Round Table’s vision of an Arab Federation draws near, interlinked with the Mediterranean Security and Prosperity Zone and thus with the EU and “African Union.” The Mullahs will mutter usefully about the “Great Satan,” we will strengthen the UN by pleading for “timelines and sanctions” and NATO’s “humanitarian intervention” will advance the unified world system.
underwrites Iran’s trade deficit lets Kurds recruit fighters in
Germany to be slipped into Iran. Following “Shock and Awe,” American
diplomats interfered in Turkey’s politics, sanitizing the Islamist
party that now rules, prepares to invade northern “Iraq” and fulminates
against America. NATO powers have many chits, bluffs and the power
to back them: every move on the board has many facets. So long as
Iran helps the gamers toward their perennial goals, the squabbling
will proceed while the world’s root is hacked away. And with this
damage proceeds the collapse of a sovereign America.
The British perceived the twilight and collapse of the West by the
mid-nineteenth century and expressed it, inter alia in the starved,
prettily androgynous neo-Gothic knights and maidens of pre-Raphaelite
painting - whose precursor is the emaciated, despairing and moribund
"knight at arms" entrapped by "La Belle Dame Sans Merci" (Keats,
1819) -- and Tennyson's Idylls of the King in which vanity, pride,
breach of faith and appetite make "the realm reel back into the

Eugene Narrett received his BA, MA and PhD from Columbia University in NYC. His writings on American politics and culture and on the Middle East and geopolitics have been widely published. These include four books, the most recent being WW III: the War on the Jews and the Rise of the World Security State (2007) which examines the historical roots and purposes of the war on terror as a late stage in the undoing of the West. His previous book, Israel and the Endtimes (2006) lays the basis for these questions.
Dr. Narrett has appeared on scores of radio programs, both major networks like WABC, Radio America, Eagle Forum Radio and Westwood Communications, as well as regional and local stations. He has been honored for his essays on art and literature and on behalf of the pro-life movement.
Since receiving his doctorate in 1978, Dr. Narrett has been teaching literature and art and creating interdisciplinary courses in the Humanities. He lectures on a variety of topics relating to western civilization, geopolitics and the multi-faceted war on the family that is a striking feature of the postmodern west.
