The US knows that Israel is commiting acts of terrorism by threatening Iran and remains silent, while issuing tacit consent — supplying it all and playing the public relations game of fear and confusion.

The Jerusalem Post:

Israel is seriously considering taking unilateral military action to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, according to a report by top US political figures and experts released Wednesday….

An early draft of the report was endorsed by Dennis Ross before he withdrew upon joining the Obama administration….

The bipartisan group also recommended increasing security guarantees and the supply of missile defenses and other protective measures to allies in the Middle East, both to reassure them of America’s commitment to them and to dampen the perceived effectiveness, and hence appeal, of nuclear weapons for Iran….

The study stresses the importance of having a united global front and pushes for intensified diplomacy with Russia to both make sanctions more effective and to persuade the Russians not to deliver the S-300 system….

The report makes no mention of the presidential elections in Iran this June, which could see the more moderate Muhammad Khatami replace fiery current President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

US ‘top political figures’ knowing ‘Israel is seriously considering taking unilateral military action’ against Iran

An Amnesty International (AI) recent report listed the US as Israel’s top supplier in a report calling for a worldwide arms embargo on Israel for its recent war crimes in Gaza. It’s no secret that Iran heavily supplies Hamas — which AI also calls suppliers to cut off — but the US couldn’t legitimately enforce Iran’s supplication of Hamas while using Israel as a client State.

When a financier knows their client is using the finances for unlawful acts and continues to finance the client, the financier becomes a co-conspirator to crimes of terrorism, apartheid, genocide, and against humanity in the case of the US’s relations with Israel.

Lew Rockwell summed this up best on his blog entry titled, “What the Heck is This?“:

Don’t constant threats to attack another country constitute a casus belli under international law? Would such threats be made without Obama’s permission? Look, fellows, the whole world is in an unprecedented financial crisis, and you want to start a war that will kill many innocents, and could become a world war? Come on.

Iran acquiring a nuclear weapon

The US is deliberately confusing the American people:

Just an hour later on NBC, Defense Secretary Robert Gates was assuring people that Iran was “not close to a stockpile, they’re not close to a weapon at this point, and so there is some time.” The White House had previously declared Iran an “urgent problem,”

Secy. Gates is saying Iran is nothing to worry about, while another part of the same White House is calling Iran an “urgent problem”?

Here are facts, sheeple: The US is not inspecting Iran’s facilities. They have no reasonably, eloquently crafted rhetoric about Iran’s nuclear capabilities to rebut the reports from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) stating that Iran is in compliance with the agency and that Iran’s nuclear supply (to be used to power the country’s new energy grid) has ‘not been diverted to any other use‘.

Russia supplying it with the S-300 system

CNN:

[Russian Foreign Minister SergeyLavrov] was asked about Russian intentions to install S-300 missiles in Iran. He said the decision “will be made exclusively on the basis of law in accordance with Russian law, and will be under expert control, which is one of the strictest in the world and of course in accordance with international agreements.” Lavrov said the weapons Russia provides to its partners are “nondestabilizing, defensive weapons.”

“An early draft of the report was endorsed by Dennis Ross”

Dennis Ross, Secy. of State Hillary Clinton’s ‘special advisor’ to the Persian Gulf, is the co-founder of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) funded WINEP, the think tank which funded the report. AIPAC describes itself as “America’s Pro-Israel Lobby”.

Obama appointed a man directly in the pocket of the most influential Middle East foreign policy lobby in America his #1 diplomat’s ‘special advisor’.

Iran’s upcoming elections

Zbigniew Brzezinski, national security advisor for Fmr. Pres. Jimmy Carter responded to this report:

…there are two ways to approach negotiations:

The first is to design the negotiation to fail, and to make Iran appear to blame. This would be achieved by setting preconditions, threatening with sanctions and force, calling for regime change and labeling the Iranian government as a “terrorist entity.”

The second approach to negotiation is to, “Seek to engage the Iran in a process in which there emerges the possibility of some consentual arrangement.”

[Brzezinski and Brent Scowcroft, an advisor to Fmr. Pres. George H.W. Bush] argued that there is no evidence to suggest that Iran would enter into a nuclear war in the region, saying that would be a “suicidal” act.

‘Suicidal’? Why? BECAUSE ISRAEL HAS HUNDREDS OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS!!! To believe Iran is a threat to attack Israel with a nuclear weapon, were Iran to be pursuing one or exist in Iran’s hands or make on and sell it to someone for them to use it on Israel, is just stupid.

The US is taking Mr. Brzezinski’s first approach — to create a failed approach in order to create a self-fulfilling prophecy, were Israel to strike first, and claim ‘imminent threat’ and use Americans’ stupid worship of the president in deceit.

Keyword: CREATE!

We’ve been down this road before.

Israel’s demolition of Palestinian homes

In absolute direct violation with UN resolutions 242 and 338, Israel plans to “double up” its unlawful, colonial settlements in Palestinian West Bank territory — demolishing homes where Palestinian civilians currently live.

The EU calls these actions, “illegal annexation” while Secy. Clinton calls it “an issue that we intend to raise with the government of Israel” after a week of non-violent protests from Palestinians.

President Obama is non-responsive to the numerous war crimes allegations against Israel, the call for an arms embargo, participates in jingoism directed toward Iran (by proxy), and remains silent on the issue of Israel’s aggressive colonialism while Israel continues to arm Georgia because there’s ‘only one president at a…’ Oops!

The new director of the CIA has vowed to that the president will continue to bomb Pakistan (as he promised throughout his campaign) that increase threats to Pakistan from al-Qa’ida and Taleban sympathizers.

Little Alex was right on the ball with this months ago:

[Other than Iran possessing a nuclear weapon, the] other two concerns of Mr. Obama are: “[Iran’s] funding of terrorist organizations [and] their threats against Israel are contrary to everything we believe in.“

What Mr. Obama fails to mention is that:

From this angle, Iran’s nuclear compliance displays extraordinary restraint in a nuclear world. (Dare I say it!)

And Mr. Obama can get what he wants — a nuclear weapon-free Iran that doesn’t fund terrorist organizations or threaten Israel — the hard way or the easy way; the easy way being to hold the US and its allies to the same standards by which the US holds Iran.

This is an extremely conservative proposal that I’m making — of which I assume to be consistent with US public opinion:

  1. Strictly promote actions in accordance with the National Intelligence Estimate and the reports by the IAEA.
  2. Analyze the supervision and regulation by Russia and China.
  3. Do not deviate from the authority of the UN Security Council in which the US actively participates and agrees to abide by its Charter.
  4. Be morally consistent over giving in to allied preferential treatment.

If the rumor that Mr. Obama will end “blank cheques” to Israel from the US is true, it’s certainly a step in the right direction.

Prof. Chomsky says it best: The only way we can put a permanent end to terrorism is to stop participating in it.

US Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) has criticized Mr. Obama for ‘extending the war chapter’ that was “waged under false pretense against an innocent people” and his colleague, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) re-affirmed this late last week:

“The person most pleased with our foreign policy is Osama bin Laden….

“He [bin Laden] said, ‘I’m going to get you to come over here and we’ll fight you on our sand, and we will do what we did to the Soviets.’ … He said he will do the same thing, he will eventually bankrupt this country….

“Don’t we know anything about history?

“We want to get rid of a bad guy in Iraq — we did. But … another one million Iraqis got killed. Believe me, they weren’t all terrorists. … But nevertheless, it pleased Osama bin Laden.”

US Congressmen Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) and Ron Paul (R-TX) seem to be the only people in DC left in the anti-war movement. The public is a herd of blind sheep following their shepherd who’s lied them to the land from where they were promised to depart.

You’re being seduced by ‘roads and bridges’ so this can happen?

I’ll just say it: Impeach the damn president and prosecute him with the old one.
