Bush-Cheney-Israel Disinfo Campaign To Justify An Attack On Iran


www.globalresearch.ca

The Bush administration and Israeli government appear to be operating a joint disinformation campaign, whose objective is to establish a media based alternative reality from which to accuse Syria/Iran of developing nuclear weapons with help from North Korea, by using a real event combined with planted stories establishing a defining narrative. This accusation in turn is augmented with stories about Iranian sponsored "Special Groups killing US troops in Iraq" and purported naval incidents the Persian Gulf, creating self-reinforcing, media based crisis.


They've churning out these stories in overtime as of late...



The immediate purpose of this disinformation campaign is apparently to help justify the planned US attack on a wide range of Iranian industrial and military targets. And, as in the Israeli attacks on Lebanon, the objective is to swiftly inflict substantial damage to the national infrastructure of Iran, followed by an abrupt cessation of attacks and a call for a cease-fire to prevent substantial Iranian retaliation. Again, as in the Israeli attacks on Lebanon, the US likely will resist calls for a cessation of the attacks until a significant portion of the Iranian target set has been addressed, then it will accept calls for a cease-fire and demand Iran do the same.

Great Article From Global Research, touting how we are being set up for "Iraq 2" via an endless propaganda stream from the maniacs in charge of things, and their ever-complicit sock puppet team of shills, The Main Stream Media. The Article also names names of News outlets, such as the NY Times, Washington Post and CBS news as colluding with the gov in blatant disinfo stories to try and set the wheels in motion for the attack, much like the build-up to Iraq, when they were running nothing but pro-war, Iraq is the axis-of-evil nonsense.

Dumbya and Insaney have been planning this out for a while now, just like they did prior to Iraq, and now with Iran announcing that they are dropping the dollar in all oil sales, this just lights the fire under them to REALLY step up the disinfo campaign and paint Iran as the ills of the whole world.

Fool me once, shame on you...Fool me twice....


Any subsequent attacks by Iran would probably be characterized by the US as Iranian aggression, further justifying US follow-up attacks on remaining Iranian assets as defensive measures. The transparent duplicity of such US actions and claims is not a problem because US corporate media is prepared to report repeatedly the administration's claims with little or no criticism or mention of alternative assessments. In other words, subjecting its audience to blatant propaganda masquerading as journalism, which is effective as it is because of US corporate media's quantitative monopoly on information provided the public.


As far as can be determined, no credible or even plausible evidence for any of these claims has been presented by the Bush administration, let alone by any independent verification of such claims. Instead, in the pattern similar to the disinformation campaign before the invasion of Iraq, questions about these claims, when raised at all, are ignored or "answered" with repeated or additional claims. Essentially this disinformation campaign, as all such campaigns, is an elaborate set of lies to deceive an enemy, in this case the Unites States Congress and the American people, in pursuit of Bush administration secret policy objectives for the benefit of a foreign government.

I think that this is just the kind of thing that they need. I've been watching all this skirmishing with "accidental" shootings and such, and it just feels too much like the lead-up to 9-11.

If you like this thread, there is a similar one in Justin Oldham's forum about the next world war that you might want to check out. I'd link it, but I don't know how.
