The Planned Attack On Iran

Posted by Charles II on February 4, 2007

ICH has made available Bill Moyers’s documentary, The Secret Government. It is very much worth watching. It discusses how we got into wars and covert actions over the 40 years between the signing of the 1947 National Security Act and when the documentary was made. It shows how the men who run these operations become hardened to lying, accustomed to deceiving themselves that they are protecting us, and willing to torture, maim, and murder in the name of peace.

It’s worth watching because it explains how we are being pushed into war with Iran. John Pilger:

An American naval build-up in the eastern Mediterranean has begun. This is almost certainly part of what the Pentagon calls CONPLAN, which is the aerial bombing of Iran. In 2004, National Security Presidential Directive 35, entitled “Nuclear Weapons Deployment Authorisation”, was issued. It is classified, of course, but the presumption has long been that NSPD 35 authorised the stockpiling and deployment of “tactical” nuclear weapons in the Middle East.

This does not mean Bush will use them against Iran, but for the first time since the most dangerous years of the cold war, the use of what were then called “limited” nuclear weapons is being discussed openly in Washington….

The well-informed Arab Times in Kuwait says that Bush will attack Iran before the end of April. One of Russia’s most senior military strategists, General Leonid Ivashov, says the US will use nuclear munitions delivered by cruise missiles launched from the Mediterranean. “The war in Iraq,” he wrote on 24 January, “was just one element in a series of steps in the process of regional destabilisation.

If you have a call to make or a letter to write or a friend to talk to that can help stop this from happening, now is the time.
