The pure and simple reality is that there is an agenda of transformation in the middle east, one that began after 9/11 and uses our tax to pay for it.
That is the reality of the situation and there is plenty of evidence to prove it, one such example I am going to share in this thread.
The notion of whether Iran is developing a nuclear weapon or not is just the pre-text to justify policy against Iran- exactly the same as the pre-text
which led up to the Iraq war. It later turned out the WMD argument was a fabrication but that is completely irrelevant, what is important is that
there was a very strong lobby within the USA pushing for the war- years before it happened.
To show evidence for this, please took a look at the following letter to Bill Clinton in 1998 from the Project for the New American Century-
A few quotes to get an idea-
Dear Mr. President:
We are writing you because we are convinced that current American policy toward Iraq is not succeeding, and that we may soon face a threat in the
Middle East more serious than any we have known since the end of the Cold War. In your upcoming State of the Union Address, you have an opportunity
to chart a clear and determined course for meeting this threat. We urge you to seize that opportunity, and to enunciate a new strategy that would
secure the interests of the U.S. and our friends and allies around the world.
That strategy should aim, above all, at the removal of Saddam Hussein’s regime from power. We stand ready to offer our full support in this
difficult but necessary endeavor.
The policy of “containment” of Saddam Hussein has been steadily eroding over the past several months. As recent events have demonstrated, we can
no longer depend on our partners in the Gulf War coalition to continue to uphold the sanctions or to punish Saddam when he blocks or evades UN
inspections. Our ability to ensure that Saddam Hussein is not producing weapons of mass destruction, therefore, has substantially diminished.
1998 and there is talk of WMD in Iraq- 5 years before the invasion of 2003- the pro war lobbyists work for years in the build up to wars- a lot of
people have to be convinced a certain country is a threat etc- as we see here, one of the main people being the president!
It hardly needs to be added that if Saddam does acquire the capability to deliver weapons of mass destruction, as he is almost certain to do if we
continue along the present course, the safety of American troops in the region, of our friends and allies like Israel and the moderate Arab states,
and a significant portion of the world’s supply of oil will all be put at hazard.
The only acceptable strategy is one that eliminates the possibility that Iraq will be able to use or threaten to use weapons of mass destruction.
In the near term, this means a willingness to undertake military action as diplomacy is clearly failing. In the long term, it means removing Saddam
Hussein and his regime from power. That now needs to become the aim of American foreign policy.
You could print the bolded section of that letter from 1998 and just replace Iraq with Iran and not know the difference! Same lies and fabrications,
just different names and places.
People behind the PNAC are very influential people- people favourable to the Israeli lobby who just happen to be high up in government- people such as
Dov Zakheim, Paul Wolfowitz- very strong voices puhsing for the Iraq war- years before it happened. Rumsfeld was also involved in the PNAC. So it
isn't just some rag tag group of war mongers- these are people VERY high up in government and very influential in forming foreign policy.
History is repeating, the same lobby, which is pro Israel, using the same arguments to justify military actions (a few new names- Saban Center for
middle east policy), Dov Zakheim is back in the mix as part of Romney's middle east advisory team (as of 2011), they want war to have control of the
region and its resources.
If you go to youtube and watch Clinton's 1998 State of the Union Speech, he spoke at length of the threat of Saddam Hussein and his WMD. Foreign
policy analysts, who have an agenda, work very hard behind the scenes to force their policies on the president and politicians. We now see policy
shaping against Iran, they just need the 'spark' to get the ball rolling as it were.
It amazes me that people still don't see it. The transformation of the middle east through regime change is moving at an incredible rate- in just 12
years time we have seen regime change in Iraq, Afghan and Libya.
To sum up policy- just think about one man- Dov Zakheim- dual citizen of Israel- he was the man who secured the Israeli air force development in the
1980's, former comptroller to the Pentagon- he is obviously pro Israel- yet he helps shape the policy of the middle east- even though the population
of Israel is just under 8,000,000 and the population of the middle east is in the hundreds of millions.
Think about it!
