Rumors from Russia about Iran

Terrible rumors from Russia continue to swirl around the Middle East that the Cheney-Bush junta has decided to bomb Iran on April 4th or 6th, targeting not only nuclear-power research facilities but ships, planes, antiaircraft installations, and the Iranian pentagon. Apparently the nuclear-power reactor being built by Russian companies will be spared, but not much else. Will it happen? Certainly the neocon hate network is working overtime to make it so. Bush fired the anti-neocon Admiral Fallon. One thing we know for sure: it will be the typical Bush administration snafu, with horrific consequences for the region and the world, not to speak of the Iranian people, and reap much trouble for the US empire. Indeed, it could mark the end of the empire if, as Bill Lind worries, the Iranians in retaliation cut off water-food-ammo supply routes to US troops in Iraq, and, with the help of Shiite militians, capture large numbers of them.

I just saw this and haven't been able to find anything else on it. Rockwell is a pretty respectable source, except for the RP plug.

Of course we've all seen recent events that coincide, but I'm curious about any rumors coming out of Russia.

Interested to see if anyone can dig anything up.

Bush/Cheney will undoubtedly do something illegal, horrific, and beyond the capacity of any civilised people to understand.

I cannot imagine how citizens of the USA can listen to George W. Bush speak over these last months and not think to themselves 'Can we get rid of this idiot already?!'

I guess we will find out in a matter of days. I have never heard of Lewrockwell before. Can you point out any other inside info that they have been right about in the past?

Lew Rockwell is a Libertarian Scholar and Activist. He was Ron Paul's Chief of Staff in the 80s, founded the Ludwig Von Mises Institute, and is political commentator at

He's not a "conspiracy theorist" of any sorts to the best of my knowledge and I have never seen any predictions from him previously on anything, that's what made me interested.

I received an e-mail that I chalked up to 'hoax' which stated that, in its recent closed session, this was one of the issues Congress discussed as well as the collapse of the economy. The Military-Industrial Complex definitely thinks war is a way out of economic decline. We already have war so a little more won't hurt us, right?

Also Bush recently sent Putin a hand written and delivered letter. Additionally, MSM is reporting that the recent green zone attacks are from Iranian made missiles. Furthermore, I am also seeing these dates used on various other blogs. I am now really concerned.

However, many sources say that the U.S. cannot initiate conflict on any other fronts, as our military is already stretched so thin.

These people are maniacal.

I have never heard of this guy before, although that is not saying much.

How far can a blog be trusted for real information and not just someones speculation on what they think will happen??

I have heard that Russia has sent warnings to Jewish Americans that an economic collapse would stir up antisemitic sentiments and that they should get out while the getting is good. If they didn't do it voluntarily they would be forced out. It came from...

*But the place I found it has also mentioned Russian intelligence warning of imminent US attacks on Lebanon as well, so I'm not sure what to make of 'Russian Intelligence' at the moment.

RE: Stumpy

If you read it, he's not really speculating or predicting just stating that he is hearing rumors from Russia. Not saying it is true just pointing that out.

This is kind of horrifying but I could kind of see Russia and China going along with it because who wants an Islamic Jihadi superpower. It's a threat to all of us. Or at least it is widely percieved that way. I heard April 3 mentioned. War is not the answer. We can be alot more creative.

Like the NWO is all just capitalist pigs?

Yes, the NWO or the black government is going to nuke people, lots of people, inclueding the USA, unless we reinstate the constitution and drive them out, but we can't do that if we're squableing over petty political parties that don't actualy exsist anymore, can we?

When you use a term like neocon it really hurts your credibility with those who actualy adhere to the priceables of freedom and liberty forund in the constitution, not only personal liberties but financial as well. Does it sound conservitive to YOU to want to nuke all oposition into submission of the government? If it does, please read a definition of what these terms mean in real life, not just in liberal socialist happy happy la-la land.

The NWO is a real threat, and they have nukes at thier disposal, all the nukes are at thier disposal. Democracy, and the republic forms of government we are garrenteed by the US constitution have been over ridden by the worlds elite 'blue-bloods' who neither espouse liberal OR 'neocon' ideals, they are more medievil, imperial, royalists as they see them selves as gods on earth who's place it is to rulle all else.

You really believe progressive's owner when he spews this socialist non-sence? Funny how he wants to bring communism to the USA, but I don't see him volunteering HIS money to the government, but since he says 'neocons' he gets the liberal ear all day long. Bush supporters are just as bad, he says 'christian' but I don't see him doing any better.

Lets at least try to come together long enough to overthrow the NWO, then we can worry about communism or freedom, ok?

Maybe the real reason for Cheney visit to Middle East was related to coming attack on Iran?

Plan To Deal With Radiation Hazard Before Shoura Council

RIYADH, 24 March 2008 — The Shoura Council has discussed a national plan to deal with any potential leakage of radioactive material in the Kingdom following warnings of possible attacks on Iran’s nuclear reactors.

Worried Yet? Saudis Prepare for "Sudden Nuclear Hazards" After Cheney visit (Blog)

I. One Tick Closer to Midnight Last Friday, Dick Cheney was in Saudi Arabia for high-level meetings with the Saudi king and his ministers. On Saturday, it was revealed that the Saudi Shura Council -- the elite group that implements the decisions of the autocratic inner circle -- is preparing "national plans to deal with any sudden nuclear and radioactive hazards that may affect the kingdom following experts' warnings of possible attacks on Iran's Bushehr nuclear reactors," one of the kingdom's leading newspapers, Okaz, reports. The German-based dpa news service relayed the paper's story.

Personally i can definitely see this happening. The only way though i think this could happen would be a false flag operation to occur first. Although with the 'resignation' of Admiral Fallon who was fully against any Iranian strike suggests something is afoot. It is hard to analyse the situation as everything is in flux, the democrats choice for president not decided, the economy in turmoil, escalation of violence in Iraq, threat of another incursion in Lebanon by Israel.....Anything could happen right now i belive

Attack now would be most suicidal.

I believe to attack all this month, but situation in Iraq is tight, and there is great problems rising with Militia Forces, who also needs funds and training for effective war against occupiers. If US is really pushing their buttons against Iran, they soon would get fully armed, and with trained officers regrouped military forces to their faces in Iraq.

If Al-Sadr keeps it campaign going, and wider that to all parts of Iraq, I see that there is no chance to US attack to Iran. Ball is in his hands.

I see many reasons why US will to attack Iran, and I see many reasons why Russia will be the greatest opposition against it.

Fast overlook...

USA reasons to attack: New Iran Oil Bourse, Israel pressure, Shiia Co-ops, Hezbolah co-ops, Hamas co-ops, Alliance with Syria, Geological position in Hermuz.

Russia & China reasons to defence: Great business deals, Oil co-ops, Caspian See Treaty, Shanghai Co-ops with China, Arm Deals, Syrian deals, New Oil Bourse, geopolitical reasons.

Why is good to attack now: Bush in office last year, Forces ready and trained, Impact of oil bourse in beginning, Israel waits, Pakistan still ally but maybe not long, Afghanistan keeps a little break, Iraq problems growing but not great now, Nobody expect that now, weather is now good for war, President is now changing in Russia.

Why is bad attack now: Russia and China will defend them, Oil price will jump sky rocket, no public co-ops, Caspian Treaty protect them, Putin is still in power in Russia, Iran will arm militias and regroup army of Iraq, Land to Sea missiles what Iran will use, Syria activity and protect their ally, Terror and riots all around the world against US interests, Impact to value of dollar...

Its like 50-50 situation in my eyes.

The minute hand is at the 11th hour, the hour hand at 12. Defcon 2.

This looks dangerous. We all know the middle east situation is a box of fireworks and Cheney is the kid with the match.

(Man thats a lot of allegories in one post!)

None of us will know the time, it will just happen if it happens. But one would assume that russia has some knowledge of the usa armed forces, as they must monitor them. But like many before, i think these are just warnings to the general public, and may be a way of putting of america.

But like i said if it does happen, we will not know the time or date or whatever.

From everything I have read and heard the pentagon is dead set against any unprovoked attack on Iran if only because of the condition our military is in thanks to Iraq.

I would think if that is the case (and God knows I hope it is) bush minor or cheney the dick might give the order but the generals might say no as well.

When Fallon steps out, my first tough was that: Cheney say now! The order has already one times given... But resignation was the answer: And Forces keep their stand.

I've been going through my personal e-mail and a number of friends of mine in the Holy Land and in Greece expect the U.S. to attack Iran & Syria on Eastern Orthodox Good Friday. This year that would be April 25th.

This would be a more opportune time as many, many Russians will be observing the Holy Day and a large swath of Syrians will be as well (In Syria, all Christians Orthodox and Catholic observe Easter on the Orthodox date).

It presents a point for delayed reaction from the Russians and increased vulnerability for the Syrians.

Friends note that with the U.S. gov't having used up all of its political capital it stands to reason that if they are going after Iran, they will go after Syria at the same time.

Guys, I'm pretty sure I can explain this.

It's probably the result of a very simple mix up and if anyone was around here this time last year they will remember this.

Ok, so what is this story? "Terrible rumors from Russia continue to swirl around the Middle East that the Cheney-Bush junta has decided to bomb Iran on April 4th or 6th"

Rumors from Russia about an attack on Iran around April 6th - Right?

Now, keep that in mind and have a look at these links from last year, 2007, not 2008 : :

Iran War April 6th - Russian Intel.

The War is Coming to Iran - April 6th at 4 am

Blogs of War: April 6th Attack Rumors for Iran

Russians claim USA will attack Iran April 6th

In fact, just do a search for "iran april 6th" in google and you'll get thousands of hits all about Russian rumors of an attack on Iran around April 6th....It was all over the internet at the time, 'Operation Bite' - remember?

It's pretty clear that all thats happened here is that the same story has been reported again by accident due to lew rockwell seeing one of these articles and maybe not realising it was from 2007 - not 2008.
