Thanks for the link.
I don't think anything stands out as not having been mentioned or implied already. We've all heard the 'economic sanctions' nonsense, sure - but to
be seen to be preparing militarily is pretty standard fare for these things (warships moving to the Middle East etc)
You are, whether knowingly or not, making the Zionist jump and all that comes with it and I think you might be derailing your thread with it.
Just my thoughts.
Let me just say, sadly, 2013 policy is VASTLY different to previous policy.
Please listen to me, I've researched this a lot.
I made the points you made, until I went back over previous NDAA.
In the media, we have heard the Iran threat for years. Same thing happened from 1998 onwards until 2003, Iraq and Saddam's weapons of mass
That is part of what goes on behind the scenes. The media is controlled hence the propaganda starts early.
However, actual government takes a LOT of persuading to actually implement policy.
What you will see if you research previous NDAA is a slow, but very gradual hardening of the policy towards Iran.
In 2010, NDAA policy didn't not consider Iran a major threat.
Going into 2012, NDAA policy stated the best way to deal with Iran was through applying sanctions and to try for a diplomatic solution.
So whilst the Zionist lobby has been pushing the Iran threat for years, actual US policy has been to avoid conflict and use diplomacy.
Feel free to search for previous NDAA, I have a thread showing this to be the case.
NDAA for 2013 is the first time ACTUAL POLICY has admitted diplomacy is not working, and that America will prepare to tackle Iran militarily.
So it is unfair and inaccurate to say this is nothing new. It's nothing new in the MSM news, but for actual policy, this is a big development because
diplomacy is now being sidelined for the first time.
