IRAN THE NEXT TARGET?
George Bush said that "the final history in the region has yet to be written" but what is interesting about the violence in Iraq, Lebanon and the Gaza strip is that all three involved terrorist groups are trying to thwart the spread of democracy. "Iran is obviously part of the problem," he added. "Imagine if they had a nuclear weapon."
As recently as January 2005 Halliburton sold key components for a nuclear reactor to an Iranian development company. They previously claimed that they would discontinue doing business in Iran. However, that claim didn't include its subsidiary companies. I am not a scientist but a nuclear reactor is a source for plutonium or enriched uranium for nuclear weapons. Iran doesn't have nuclear weapons. Religious leaders vigorously deny that they are working on nuclear weaponry. If Iran possessed weapons, they would use them for self-defense because both Israel and the United States have nuclear bombs and superior delivery systems. Any offensive use of potential nuclear weapons would guarantee national suicide for Iran.
In early January 2007, it was revealed that Israel had developed secret plans to destroy Iran's uranium enrichment facilities with tactical nuclear weapons, the first use of nuclear weapons since 1945, "when the United States dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki." In addition, "The Pentagon, acting under instructions from Vice President Dick Cheney's office, has tasked the United States Strategic Command (STRATCOM) with drawing up a contingency plan to be employed in response to another 9/11-type terrorist attack on the United States.
The plan includes a large-scale air assault on Iran employing both conventional and tactical nuclear weapons. Within Iran there are more than 450 major strategic targets, including numerous suspected nuclear-weapons-program development sites. Many of the targets are hardened or are deep underground and could not be taken out by conventional weapons, hence the nuclear option. As in the case of Iraq, the response is not conditional on Iran actually being involved in the act of terrorism directed against the United States."
Destabilization for Iran has been in the plotting stages in U.S. private foundations and think-tanks. A military strike against Iran's nuclear energy production facilities would most definitely affect the economy. The other objective - overthrow the Iranian government. Multinational companies, along with covert military operations supply oil-rich countries, and encourage infrastructure development by acquiring World Bank loans. The greedy seize the resources, collect the money, eliminate leaders and install puppet governments who will accommodate globalist demands. Some dictators call that democracy; in reality it is fascism, an incestuous, symbiotic relationship between government and big business.
"Both Israel and the United States have leaderships greatly influenced by religious groups whose principles encourage and welcome violent expansionism and even apocalyptic, 'end-time' scenarios. The media do not mention U.S. and Israeli religious fanaticism as posing any kind of regional or global existential threat. Nor do they discuss or express great concern over the fact that whereas a few nuclear weapons would only help Iran to deter other states from attacking it, the United States and Israel could use nuclear weapons against Iran without committing national suicide."
Why is it that Cheney is regularly involved in any issue dealing with a designated "axis of evil" country and weaponry? Read about the 1991 cable regarding North and South Korea from Secretary of State James Baker to Dick Cheney when he was the Secretary of Defense. Baker recently headed the bipartisan Iraq Study Group which recommended a withdrawal of U.S. troops by early 2008. However, Bush is committed to the recommendations of the neoconservative American Enterprise Institute (AEI) instead. Dick Cheney, as previously mentioned was a senior fellow with this group in 1993. Cheney's wife, Lynne has been a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute since 1993.
George W. Bush said on National Public Radio on Monday, January 29, 2007, that the United States will respond "firmly" if Iran escalates its "military action" in strife-stricken Iraq to the detriment of our troops or the Iraqi people. Gordon Johndroe, U.S. National Security Council spokesman, urged Iran to discontinue their 'destructive' behavior in Iraq. Further, he stated that the U.S. would welcome a constructive stance from Iran. Statistics indicate that the greatest detriment to Iraq and her civilians is the result of continued American presence and our use of depleted uranium weapons - responsible for the deaths and maiming of thousands.
The U.S. Pentagon Propaganda Ministry is disseminating disinformation (brainwashing) including a false claim that Ahmadinejad stated he wanted to "wipe Israel off the map." Or perhaps you heard the story about the infamous, distorted, allegedly anti Semitic International Conference on the Holocaust in Iran. The disinformation agents also claim that "networks of Iranians that had been operating with virtual impunity inside Iraq." This Tonkin Bay type claim will undoubtedly be used to justify an invasion of Iran. Apparently five American soldiers were killed on January 20, 2007 which is being blamed on some Iranian agents because of the unusual methods, weapons and uniforms.
The new Secretary of War, Robert Gates, stated that "any kind of military action inside Iran itself � would be a very last resort." Gates also said "that the addition of 21,000 troops would be viewed as a temporary surge." Almost in the same breath, Gates "announced that he was requesting an increase in the size of the Army and Marine Corps by 92,000 troops over the next five years." "Temporary" is obviously meaningless given the requested increase in troops.
The Pentagon is ready to make a proposal to Congress requesting that the Army be "increased by 65,000, to 547,000 and that the Marine Corps, the smallest of the services, grow by 27,000, to 202,000, over the next five years." Because that will not supply sufficient cannon fodder for endless warfare, the Pentagon has recently "abandoned its limit on the time a citizen-soldier can be required to serve on active duty." Prepare for the sacrificing of your sons and daughters to military servitude along with otherwise well-compensated mercenaries.
"Already, private contractors constitute the second-largest 'force' in Iraq. At last count, there were about 100,000 contractors in Iraq, of which 48,000 work as private soldiers, according to a Government Accountability Office report. These soldiers have operated with almost no oversight or effective legal constraints and are an undeclared expansion of the scope of the occupation. Many of these contractors make up to $1,000 a day, far more than active-duty soldiers. What's more, these forces are politically expedient, as contractor deaths go uncounted in the official toll." Contract employees are not subject to military command and discipline.
Bush claims that "Together, we can restrain the spending appetite of the federal government, and we can balance the federal budget." Given the amount of money expended for war, this balancing act seems unrealistic or just an outright lie. See Bush's previous budget.
There are four American submarines off the coast of Iran. The former commander of the Russian fleet, Eduard Baltin, justifiably claims that the U.S. is planning an imminent, unilateral attack on Iran. Donald Rumsfeld and the American Enterprise Institute, not Congress, "developed a strategy for regime change in Iran that does not involve a ground invasion. Weapons of mass destruction will provide the rationale for military action, though it won't be limited to attacks on a few weapons factories." The attack "will include limiting Iranian retaliatory capability, using bombers to destroy up to 10,000 targets in the first day of any war, and Special Forces flying in to destroy anything that's left." Whatever retaliatory capabilities they possess were probably supplied through Pentagon surpluses.
The American Enterprise Institute is a far right-wing, Neo-con think tank that regularly embeds their people into influential government positions to cement their globalist foreign and domestic policies. George W. Bush admitted their influence in a speech, the Future of Iraq, at a gathering on February 26, 2003. "At the American Enterprise Institute, some of the finest minds in our nation are at work on some of the greatest challenges to our nation. You do such good work that my administration has borrowed 20 such minds." The Institute, prior to Bush's State of the Union speech on January 23, 2007, considered domestic and international challenges likely to be highlighted in the speech as well as the war on terror.
The American Enterprise Institute has strong ties to the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), co-founded in 1997 by William Kristol (Weekly Standard) and Robert Kagan. Other early PNAC members included Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, and Elliott Abrams, many of whom had roots in the Pentagon and previous Bush administration, were appointed to strategic positions in the current Bush administration. Other members included Gary Bauer, Florida Governor Jeb Bush, and Robert James Woolsey, former director of the CIA.
A major PNAC focus was Iraq, long before September 11, 2001, the "New Pearl Harbor." Perle, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, recently gave a talk in Israel at the Herzliya Conference in which he said: "President George Bush will order an attack on Iran if it becomes clear to him that Iran is set to acquire nuclear weapons capabilities while he is still in office."
PNAC supports U.S. imperialistic exploitation of resources to further multinational business interests through the use of preemptive military attacks which necessitates a huge military budget at the expense of America's social programs and infrastructure maintenance or reconstruction. The benefactors are the government connected military-industrial-complex which includes the Carlyle Group, a top Pentagon contractor. The Department of Defense has adopted the PNAC program for world domination through pervasive warfare.
So, Iran is our newest enemy target, worthy of a probable invasion planned by Cheney, because they possess nuclear components that Cheney and Halliburton sold to them in the first place. Where is the congressional or media oversight? Perhaps key members of Congress are also indebted to the same military/industrial complex for their conflict-of-interest elite lifestyles? Political contributions are insignificant - investments are even more financially beneficial, especially if that politician serves on the right committees, like the Appropriations Committee as well as the Select Committee on Intelligence. It makes exploiting the system more convenient.
Iran is the last oil-rich holdout in the regime's objective for Middle East domination. When the globalists seize all the resources, they will exert tyrannical control over everything else - the world's populace!
The Caspian Basin and Central Asia are the keys to energy in the 21st century. Whoever controls the oil routes from Central Asia will control distribution, quantities, and prices.
"The Caspian Basin has an estimated $5 trillion of oil and gas resources, and Central Asia has 6 trillion cubic meters of natural gas and 10 billion barrels of undeveloped oil reserves. Interconnecting pipelines are the key to accessing and distributing oil and gas to European, Chinese and Russian markets. Western policy planners have devoted years to this agenda."
