Iran.... Attack Imminent??


www.aljazeera.com

Is the United States going to attack Iran? This question is being asked around the world. The big American military build-up in the Persian Gulf has gone on for some time, and there is every reason to believe that Washington is setting stage for a major offensive against Iran.

In fact, the Bush administration has followed a carefully orchestrated strategy with a view to pave the way for a major conflict with Iran. The clearest signal comes from US Vice President Dick Cheney’s latest...

YES, an Iran attack is absolutely imminent and the fact that western societies aren't causing a protest against it or voicing their concerns, really worries me - it shows the propaganda feed to us through western media is indeed working on altering the views a certain way amongst the public.

Yes, Ahmadinejad is a loon who needs to be stopped, and if a surgical strike with Special Forces needs to be done then so be it, even a missile attack on their Bashir plant and the like then I can understand that......BUT......

.....nobody seems to be too concerned of the psychological games being played by the US to judge public opinion on the use of Weapons of Mass Destruction themselves in order to prepare public opinion with the fact that nukes will be used against Iran........and nobody...I mean nobody in the mass public realises the potential effects of a large scale nuke attack against that country!


www.presstv.ir...



The former commander of Iraq's Republican Guard has accused the U.S. of using non-conventional weapons in its 2003 war against the country.

Saifeddin Fulayh Hassan Taha al-Rawi told Al Jazeera that the U.S. forces used neutron and phosphorus bombs during their assault on Baghdad airport before the April 9 capture of the Iraqi capital.

Al-Rawi - one of the most wanted associates of Saddam Hussein is still on the run.

The bombs annihilated soldiers but left the buildings and infrastructure at the airport intact, he added.

A neutron bomb is a thermonuclear weapon that produces minimal blast and heat but releases large amounts of lethal radiation that can penetrate armor and is especially destructive to human tissue.


What is the real reason the US is unleashing this conflict? Yeah Iran shouldnt have the potential to develop nukes in the future but is this the "real" reason? NO

www.globalresearch.ca...



What is the real reason why the US is unleashing this military conflict?

The activities having consequences of global proportions can only be intended to deal with a global problem. This problem itself is by no means something secret - it is the possibility of a crash of the global financial system based on the US dollar. Currently the mass of US currency exceeds the total worth of US assets by more than a factor of ten. Everything in the US - industry, buildings, high-tech, and so on - has been mortgaged more than ten times all over the world. A debt of such proportions will never be repaid - it can only be relieved.

The dollar amounts on the accounts of individuals, organizations, and state treasuries are a virtual reality. These records are not secured by products, valuables or anything that exists in reality.

Writing-off this US indebtedness to the rest of the world would turn the majority of its population into deceived depositors. It would be the end of the well-established rule of the golden calf. The significance of the coming events is truly epic. This is why the aggressor ignores the global catastrophic consequences of its offensive. The bankrupt 'global bankers' need a force major event of global proportions to get out of the situation.

The solution is already in the plans. The US has nothing to offer the rest of the world to save the declining dollar except for military operations like the ones in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, and Iraq. But even these local conflicts only yield short-term effects. Something a lot greater is needed, and the need is urgent. The moment is drawing closer when the financial crisis will make the world realize that all of the US assets, all of its industrial, technological, and other potentials do not rightfully belong to the country. Then, it must be confiscated to compensate the victims, and the rights of ownership of everything bought for dollars all over the world - everything drawn from the wealth of various nations - are to be revised.

What might cause the force major event of the required scale? Everything seems to indicate that Israel will be sacrificed. Its involvement in a war with Iran - especially in a nuclear war - is bound to trigger a global catastrophe. The statehoods of Israel and Iran are based on the countries' official religions. A military conflict between Israel and Iran will immediately evolve into a religious one, a conflict between Judaism and Islam. Due to the presence of numerous Jewish and Muslim populations in the developed countries, this would make a global bloodbath inevitable. All of the active forces of most of the countries of the world would end up fighting, with almost no room for neutrality left. Judging by the increasingly massive acquisitions of the residential housing for the Israeli citizens, especially in Russia and Ukraine, a lot of people already have an idea of what the future holds.



So far, the response of the world's major political players to the developments gives no cause for optimism. The inconsequent UN resolutions concerning Iran, the attempts to appease the aggressor who no longer disguises his intentions are reminiscent of the Munich Pact on the eve of WWII.


And the proof that the US is already conducting operations within Iran is all over the place.Check out the following quote by retired Air Force Colonel Sam Gardner in mid 2006
www.globalresearch.ca...



Quoting Bush, in an interview by David Ignatius of the Washington Post from the day before, with the words "I would tell the Iranian people that we have no desire for conflict," CNN’s familiar face Wolf Blitzer turns back to Gardiner and repeats his initial question. Almost desperately the colonel replies with great emphasis: "We are conducting military operations inside Iran right now. The evidence is overwhelming, from both the Iranians [and] Americans, and Congressional sources." (emphasis added)


The recent "attempted" Gulf of Tokin Incident that seems to have backfired looks like a desperate attempt by the Anglo Coalition to suck in Iran into conflict, claims of those seaman being tortured are unfounded and made up, for seriously, would they be all smiles and so calm if they truly indured tortures claimed by the brits?

The following image seems to sum up the situation with Iran perfectly -



with Pakistan having nukes, India having nukes, North Korea having nukes and half a dozen other nations attempting to gain nuclear technologies the Anglo coalition has their blinkers on and is only focused on Iran even thou they do not have them yet!

But boy don't the US have them, and talk about proliferation, the US is proliferating their own nukes all over the place, maybe not directly sellin them to other nations but they have placed them all around.....why I ask you?

It only point to one thing....war with Iran and potentially an expanded theatre of War with nukes being the only method of attaining their goals without the necessary number of troops for a truly global imperial surge, which is what it looks like it is approaching.

www.presstv.ir...



A documentary aired on Italian TV channel, RAI 24, has claimed that the U.S. military is keeping 480 nuclear warheads across Europe, 90 in Italy.

Fifty of the warheads are being kept at Aviano Air Base, north-east of Italy and forty others at a military facility near Brescia.

The documentary warns of possible nuclear strikes against countries in the Middle East.

The Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) has banned the deployment of so many nuclear warheads in Europe.

The documentary has also called on the Italian government to comply with its obligations under the NPT and demand the removal of the weapons from the Italian soil.

Pointing to remarks made by NATO's Deputy Assistant Secretary General for Weapons of Mass Destruction policy, Guy Roberts, the documentary emphasizes that all sovereign countries have the right to call on the U.S. government to remove all its nuclear weapons from their soil.


Therefore we have the US claiming countries like Iran and North Korea a proliforating weapons of mass destruction and associated technologies yet they are once again hypocritically engaging in the same illegal behaviour.

Why is it that the US need so many nukes in Europe of all places for a strike against Iran? Here is why?

www.globalresearch.ca...



Consider the military-technical aspect of the situation. Practically, the operation's objective declared by the US - destroying some 1,500 targets on the territory of Iran - cannot be accomplished by the forces already amassed for the mission. This objective can only be met if tactical nuclear munitions are used.

An examination of the military-political aspect of the matter reveals even more significant facts. The attack on Iran is not planned to include a ground offensive. Strikes on selected military and industrial installations can cause a severe damage to the Iranian defense potential and economy. Casualties are likely to be substantial, but not catastrophic from the military point of view. At the same time, it is impossible to gain control of the territory of a country as large as Iran without a ground operation. The planned offensive will entail a consolidation of forces not only in Iran, but also in other Muslim countries and among the public throughout the world. The support for the country suffering from the US-Israeli aggression will soar. Certainly, Washington is aware that the result will be not the strengthening but the loss of US positions in the world. Consequently, the goal of the US attack against Iran has to be seen in a different light. The nuclear offensive must boost the use of nuclear blackmail in global politics by the US and fundamentally transform the world order.


ARE YOU SCARED YET ? YOU SHOULD BE


All this planning for the attack on Iran started years ago, so if they've been planning for so long and are so serious about it, what is there to say it won't happen, they have been building up nuclear stockpiles all over the area, preparing for what is to come, full well knowing the public disagrees but pursuing the agenda non the less.

www.globalresearch.ca...



The planning of the aerial bombings of Iran started in mid-2004, pursuant to the formulation of CONPLAN 8022 in early 2004. In May 2004, National Security Presidential Directive NSPD 35 entitled Nuclear Weapons Deployment Authorization was issued.

The contents of this highly sensitive document remains a carefully guarded State secret. There has been no mention of NSPD 35 by the media nor even in Congressional debates. While its contents remains classified, the presumption is that NSPD 35 pertains to the deployment of tactical nuclear weapons in the Middle East war theater in compliance with CONPLAN 8022.

In this regard, a recent press report published in Yeni Safak (Turkey) suggests that the United States is currently:

"deploying B61-type tactical nuclear weapons in southern Iraq as part of a plan to hit Iran from this area if and when Iran responds to an Israeli attack on its nuclear facilities". (Ibrahim Karagul, "The US is Deploying Nuclear Weapons in Iraq Against Iran", (Yeni Safak,. 20 December 2005, quoted in BBC Monitoring Europe).

This deployment in Iraq appears to be pursuant to NSPD 35 ,

What the Yenbi Safak report suggests is that conventional weapons would be used in the first instance, and if Iran were to retaliate in response to US-Israeli aerial attacks, tactical thermonuclear B61 weapons could then be launched This retaliation using tactical nuclear weapons would be consistent with the guidelines contained in the 2001 Nuclear Posture Review and NSPD 17 (see above).

Furthermore, the US has been stockpiling Israel with nuclear armaments in anticipation for their role in taking down Iran -

www.globalresearch.ca...



Israel is part of the military alliance and is slated to play a major role in the planned attacks on Iran. (For details see Michel Chossudovsky, Nuclear War against Iran, Jan 2006 ).

Confirmed by several press reports, Israel has taken delivery, starting in September 2004 of some 500 US produced BLU 109 bunker buster bombs (WP, January 6, 2006). The first procurement order for BLU 109 [Bomb Live Unit] dates to September 2004. In April 2005, Washington confirmed that Israel was to take delivery of 100 of the more sophisticated bunker buster bomb GBU-28 produced by Lockheed Martin ( Reuters, April 26, 2005). The GBU-28 is described as "a 5,000-pound laser-guided conventional munitions that uses a 4,400-pound penetrating warhead." It was used in the Iraqi war theater:

The Pentagon [stated] that ... the sale to Israel of 500 BLU-109 warheads, [was] meant to "contribute significantly to U.S. strategic and tactical objectives."

In more recent developments, which coincide with the preparations of strikes against Iran, Israel has taken delivery of two new German produced submarines "that could launch nuclear-armed cruise missiles for a "second-strike" deterrent." (Newsweek, 13 February 2006. See also CDI Data Base)


And it is not just the US and Israel but as Ive mentioned in earlier posts, europe too is a silent participant in this whole buildup, stockpiling US nuclear weapons on their land as backup for whatever may occur-




Several Western European countries, officially considered as "non-nuclear states", possess tactical nuclear weapons, supplied to them by Washington.

The US has supplied some 480 B61 thermonuclear bombs to five non-nuclear NATO countries including Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey, and one nuclear country, the United Kingdom. Casually disregarded by the Vienna based UN Nuclear Watch, the US has actively contributed to the proliferation of nuclear weapons in Western Europe.

As part of this European stockpiling, Turkey, which is a partner of the US-led coalition against Iran along with Israel, possesses some 90 thermonuclear B61 bunker buster bombs at the Incirlik nuclear air base. (National Resources Defense Council, Nuclear Weapons in Europe , February 2005)




Moreover, confirmed by (partially) declassified documents (released under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act):

"arrangements were made in the mid-1990s to allow the use of U.S. nuclear forces in Europe outside the area of responsibility of U.S. European Command (EUCOM). As a result of these arrangements, EUCOM now supports CENTCOM nuclear missions in the Middle East, including, potentially, against Iran and Syria"

(quoted in www.nukestrat.com... italics added)


The following link

www.nrdc.org...

is a detailed document/report detailing which countries in Europe are stockpiling US nuclear weapons as of 2005 and what sort they are, where they are and how they will be used.

In conclusion to this overly extended post, it is absolutely clear that the Iran conflict is the tip of the iceberg, yeah just the Iran conflict is bad enough but the US and Europe know that this will spread, immediately, they know that Russia, China and other Middle Eastern nations will object unanimously and retaliate in turn. Which is why the US has over the past decade been using the war on terror to expand their military tentacles around the world, justifying their forward deployment bases in Asia and middle east, and in turn surrounding Russia and China......the two most important and dangerous adversaries in US eyes and the only two that could pose an obstacle for the greater long term plans of Anglo Imperialism.

That's right, this has all been setup to take Russia and China out of the picture as potential future US/Western adversaries, hoping that by taking them out, the rest will fold like a deck of cards and implementation of ttheir NEW WORLD ORDER will be complete.

Scared? You bet I am.......

Thanks M.M. for your informative and quality post.
My studies and research have led me to a very similar conclusion.
Things are changing and at more and more of a pace.
If more signs continue to happen, i will have to rethink my position.

Oh my god.
And suddenly, a lot of other puzzle tiles are falling into place, like FEMA Camps and the ADS microwave cannon for riot control.

I mean, imagine how many people will take to the streets in the USA when those plans are put to execution... frightening, how all this suddenly makes sense in the larger picture.

I think most people prefer simply to not consider it in the first place. Here in the US we're dealing with a faltering economy, rising prices, 2 very unpopular wars and a sense of complete detachment from our own government. People simply don't have the personal bandwidth to add this ugly possibility to their nightly concerns. Most cover their ears, close their eyes and chant "nah-nah-nah-nah-nah".

My biggest concern is the possibility that the US would actually use nuclear weapons on Iran. The international repercussions of that act are unfathomable. Could this government be irresponsible enough to believe that by nuking Iran's nuclear sites that the evidence of such an attack would be obscured by the release of the Iranian's own nuclear material upon impact? Would they attempt to say that the radiation and fallout were the result of the Iranian material being blwon-up using 'conventional' explosives?

Something is definitely 'up'. GWB has an agenda. That is abundantly clear. If the SHTF I earnestly hope that people in this country find a way to band together and quickly turn this boat around. If we use WMD on another country --- especially in a completely offensive situation --- there will be truly dark days ahead for this nation.

The sky is falling, the sky is falling ....

These "attack on iran imminent" threads - and there have been many of them now - always remind me of the religious nuts who keep predicting the end of the world on a certain date, and then have to keep revising the date when (of course) nothing happens.

Yes, the U.S. will definitely attack iran on *fill in your date* ...

Your comparison is flawed.
My views on this are from information received through intelligence and self study..
My questioning on the possibility of this attack is very much the here and now, while the End Days Predictors are playing with nothing but prophecy and crossed fingers.

You have voted Melbourne_Militia for the Way Above Top Secret award.

Thanks for your great post, overall for all your posts, because that is not the first good one i remember with your name on it. We need more people like you.

But i personally don't (want) to imagine that that could be true. The "Holocaust" will be nothing compared to this. And I don't think the EU, Russia or China will be watching silently the whole show.

Of course, the propaganda machine of the NAE (New American Empire) will do their job, but it's maybe up to us, normal people to strike back if the officials don't do it. It will be the beginning of a new world war, but i don't think that it would be a religious one. At some part both Moslem's and Christian's will understand what's going on and (hopefully) fight together the real aggressor.

I know for sure that if that really happens, the American Embassy in Bulgaria will be the first one stormed, raised or bombed - by Bulgarians, hopefully making an example for freedom fighters all over the world to do the same. i would do it.

But, hopefully it doesn't come to that. No one wants to raise his children in a post WW3.

They most certainly are preparing for war. Its clear to anyone with two eyes and a brain in their skull. The propaganda is everywhere and it has been going on forever. Since Iran foiled the original plan on having British sailors tried as spies, the U.S. and their allies are trying to bring anything to light that would sway public sentiment.

Look at the latest from cnn.com

www.cnn.com...

America has Iran surrounded, look at a map! Ask yourself, how did we go from the 911 "terrorist" attack to a full scale invasion of Iraq? Iraq had nothing to do with 911 and yet we find ourselves in the middle of a bloody civil war with no end in sight. I never bought the predictions about specific attack dates, but I do know its coming.

lets look at a map of the middle east for a moment:

atomic.burghcom.com...

As you can see, we have the entire country surrounded. This is not a coincidence, this is part of the master battle plan. Believe it or not, its going to happen. It most likely won't be a U.S. led attack, but rest assured the U.S. and NATO will become active once the bullets start flying.

US launches fresh accusations at Iran

From correspondents in Baghdad

April 12, 2007 04:39am
Article from: Reuters

Send this article: Print Email

THE US military in Iraq has displayed more weapons it said were made in Iran.

It also alleged militants were being taught in the Islamic Republic how to use roadside bombs that have killed scores of American soldiers.

US military spokesman Major-General William Caldwell showed the weapons to journalists in Baghdad overnight.

They included mortar rounds and rocket-propelled grenades, which he said were found at a house and in a car in Baghdad this week.

Iran has stepped up pressure on Baghdad's government to secure the release of five Iranians being held by US forces. It has threatened to pull out of an international conference on Iraq next month, an Iranian newspaper reported.

Does this sound familiar:



Caldwell also said the U.S. military had evidence that Iranian intelligence agents were active in Iraq in funding, training and arming Shiite militia fighters.

Source

Just like the US had evidence of WMD's before the invasion of Iraq. Please, PLEASE let the media mainstream or otherwise, do their job this time and actually investigate these claims.
