UPDATE: After all attempts to frame Iran have failed thus far, a Jerusalem Post article (written by a former Israeli intelligence officer turned Operation Mockingbird style “journalist“) suggests Iran will provide the needed pretext for the war themselves by attacking a U.S. warship. Get that? They failed to frame Iran for everything from rigged elections to 9/11 and now, out of the blue, they expect Iran will make the unusually stupid move of attacking a U.S. warship and setting themselves up for regime change and perhaps a million dead Iranians in the process.
A Prison Planet article about this frightening prediction mentions Gulf of Tonkin and the USS Maine false flag attacks but for some reason never mentions the prolonged Israeli attack on the U.S.S. Liberty (see details at the end of this article) which looked to pull us into their conflict with Egypt until a Russian sub was spotted nearby watching the hours long attack and the Liberty simply refused to sink. Go figure.
UPDATE 2: Chris Mathews covered the Israeli assassination of the Iranian nuclear scientist yesterday. You might think that is good, but it is not because of HOW they covered it; they are setting up a narrative explaining WHY the Iranians would launch a military attack of some kind against the U.S. Navy. And that is EXACTLY the same thing the Jerusalem Post wrote about the other day.
The story line according the Hardball goes something like this:
- The Obama administration doesn’t want a conflict with Iran (even though it’s obvious that they do want a regime change in Iran)
- The new sanctions on Iran are making them desperate (even though South Korea, China, North Korea, Venezuela, Russia, Pakistan, India and others are not going to abide by them, and neither is Halliburton for that matter)
- The Israeli attack on a nuclear scientist is going to prompt Iran to attack the U.S. (even though they know it was not the U.S. that killed their scientist and even though there are Israeli ships in the Gulf as well as U.S. ships)
- There are mentions of Iran firing a missile at a U.S. warship or mining the Straight of Hormuz (does that remind anyone of the Cheonan incident, or is it just me?)
- Israel will then “help” the United States and be the good guys by striking back at Iran.
Mathews and Hardball are not helping us by exposing the underlying truth in this situation but rather they are laying the groundwork for the official narrative of another false flag attack even before it plays out. The Iranians would never launch an attack on a US warship because Israel killed another of their scientists. That premise is ludicrous at best. And yet, there it is.
UPDATE 3: British Prime Minister has gone to meet with the Saudi Royal family just days after the Saudi ruling regime killed protesters and hours after the British issue a warning to their citizens about traveling to that region due to “conflicts” escalating.
UPDATE 4: According to the complicit MSM, an “independent news service” known as irannuc.ir is claiming that the Iranian people buried the nuclear scientist chanting “death to the US. death to Israel” and they claim that Iran (quoting unnamed sources) is planning an attack against the West in retaliation. Of course the only videos of the burial show mourners saying “death to the terrorists”
It appears the “independent news service” (read as US financed destabilization campaign NGO) is helping to push the “Iran is going to attack” narrative.
This irannuc propaganda is already on Fox News and MSN alike.
For years I have been using the phrase “The Global Free Market Wars” to explain what is happening around the world. I didn’t coin the phrase, I don’t know who did, I wish I had. The pretense is coming to a end. The Global War on Terror is and has been since it’s inception, a fraud. A lie. 935 lies for Iraq; 1 Big Lie for Afghanistan (built on literally tons of smaller lies); NGO lies for Libya; a Fox News generated lie for Pakistan; a retroactive lie for Yemen; a lie of omission for Sudan; an opportunistic lie for North Korea; and finally, a string of lies for Iran.
Iran was recently accused of 9/11 believe it or not. The judge in that ridiculous show trial (which was not even a trial and the defense had no presence in court) found in favor of some very small group of family members of victims of 9/11 to the tune of billions of dollars in damages. Take a look at the Iranian institutions listed as the defense in this case:
- The Central bank of the Islamic Republic of Iran
- The Iran Ministry of Commerce
- The Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines
- Iran Airlines
- The National Iranian Gas Company
- The National Iranian Petrochemical Company
- The Iranian Ministry of Economic Affairs
- The National Iranian Tanker Association
- The National Iranian Oil Corporation
- The Iranian Ministry of Petroleum
- The Current Iranian Representative to the United Nations
What do you think these nationalized industries had to do with 9/11? What did the National Iranian Tanker Association have to do with 9/11? When the 9/11 Commission Report felt the need to deal with finding the funding of the actual attack, they stated that funding was of “little significance” so beyond the funding which these institutions had nothing to do with, they could not have possibly had ANYTHING at all to do with 9/11, yet there they are and the laughable ruling is on the books.
What is listed first? That’s right, the Central Bank of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
A couple days ago on Sunday, the Secretary of Defense admitted that Iran was not seeking to make a nuclear weapon. No hemming no hawwing, just said it outright as a statement of fact.
Panetta says: “Are they [Iran] trying to develop a nuclear weapon? No.” Global Research
A NYT editorial makes it clear that the IAEA report never states that Iran has a military program of any kind associated with it’s enrichment program.
“These words strongly suggest Iran is conducting a nuclear weapons program but it is noteworthy that nowhere does the IAEA come right out and say this. The agency stops short of making a clear conclusive statement.” New York Times
All of which is supported by our own national intelligence agencies’ consensus opinion; the Iranian nuclear program, if they actually existed then, has been halted since 2003.
“A government consultant who has read the highly classified 2011 N.I.E. update depicted the report as reinforcing the essential conclusion of the 2007 paper: Iran halted weaponization in 2003. “There’s more evidence to support that assessment,” the consultant told me.” Seymour Hersh
In light of all the prevailing evidence, the IAEA report, the 2007 N.I.E. report, the 2011 N.I.E. update, and the statement from the former head of the CIA and current Secretary of Defense, it is easy to conclude the obvious; Iran is not developing nuclear weapons.
So what does globalist Hillary Clinton do? She tries to revive the old “the evidence is the fact that there is no evidence” doublethink.
“U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s charge Tuesday that Iran had intended to keep the Fordow site secret until it was revealed by Western intelligence revived a claim the Barack Obama administration made in September 2009.” Gareth Porter
This old war-mongering desperation chestnut was debunked years ago with the former head of the IAEA reported in his book that Iran had told them of the site 3 days prior to the U.S. informing them, thus showing that Iran had indeed lived up to their requirements under the non-proliferation agreement.
With Clinton’s feeble attempt to finger Iran as the next great axis of evil threat to all mankind fizzling out like Umar Fizzlepant’s diaper of doom, a new course of action had to be mapped out.
They had tried to frame Iran for an assassination plot on U.S. soil that looks like it was written by the creators of Sponge Bob Square Pants. That failed.
They sent a spy over to get a receipt for a half a million dollars from the Iranian intelligence agency and that ended up with him confessing before they sentenced him to death. That failed.
They tried everything, so now they are going to try telling the truth and they are going to see if the people will ignore it like they do everything else in this country just so long as “progressive” Obama provides sufficient left-cover for our collective crimes.
“The latest round of American sanctions are aimed at shutting down Iran’s central bank, a senior US official said Thursday, spelling out that intention directly for the first time.
“We do mean to close down the Central Bank of Iran (CBI),” the official told reporters on condition of anonymity, while adding that the United States is moving quickly to implement the sanctions, signed into law last month.” AFP
The central bank of Iran is state owned.
The central bank of Iraq WAS state owned. Now it is privatized. The second law passed by the coalition government was to privatize the central bank.
The central bank of Afghanistan WAS state owned. Now it is privatized. They immediately set out to privatize their central bank as well in 2002.
The central bank of Libya WAS state owned. Now it is privatized. They actually announced that they were privatizing the national oil industry AND the central bank prior to taking control in Libya.
The central bank of Syria is state owned.
The central bank of North Korea is state owned.
The central bank of Venezuela is state owned.
Are we starting to see a pattern developing? Yes, to the leaders of the free world, it is evil to keep the masters of the universe from corrupting your economic system and locking your citizens into a life-long cycle of debt servitude. Looking out for the welfare of others who aren’t super rich, is in fact, evil.
Notice that we are now working outwardly to destabilize Russia as well. They’re trying to get Putin out of the way. Ever wonder why? Read this article from Bloomberg News titled “Vladimir Putin’s Favorite Bankers”
“With the Kremlin’s help, state-owned banks have locked up 60 percent of Russia’s corporate debt underwriting market.”
” “The Kremlin has driven out some of the biggest Western retail banks and now has two tanks on the investment banking lawn,”
The government-run banks are gaining market share by keeping fees low, says Kraus, the asset manager: “They don’t have to make money on every deal.” That suits local companies fine.” Bloomberg News
When those planes hit those buildings in 2001, the Global War on Terror took off and it was crucial that it had no boundaries, no specific limitations because, as in Yemen since then, the revolution that started threatened to nationalize their central bank once again, and that could not be allowed, thus al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula was formed and the “terrorists” had to be bombed by Obama’s cruise missiles.
The Global Free Market Wars are out in the open. They have been for some time, just relegated by the MSM and the institutionalized masses to the realms of the conspiracy theorists and wing-nuts. We are pushing World War III so that bankers and financial houses can own and control more nations and their economies but that isn’t anything new in the world of warcraft.
What is new, at least this time around, is their final admission that this is the point of it all; shut down nationalized central banking systems and replace them with our privatized model. Pure and simple. That is what it is.
When all else fails, tell them the truth and see if they give a shit. You can always count on the fact that they will forget.
UPDATE: from the Jerusalem Post article:
“Watching the Sunday talk shows on American TV, the experts were all of the opinion that neither the US nor Israel will embark on attacking the Iranian nuclear facilities in 2012. I tend to agree. Neither the US nor Israel will initiate an attack on Iran. Still, I believe that these experts were off by a million miles.
Iran, just like Nazi Germany in the 1940s, will take the initiative and “help” the US president and the American public make up their mind by making the first move, by attacking a US aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf.
The Iranian attack on an American military vessel will serve as a justification and a pretext for a retaliatory move by the US military against the Iranian regime. The target would not be Iran’s nuclear facilities. The US would retaliate by attacking Iran’s navy, their military installations, missile silos, airfields. The US would target Iran’s ability to retaliate, to close down the Strait of Hormuz. The US would then follow by targeting the regime itself.” Avi Perry
And now for a bit of history:
“The USS Liberty incident was an attack on a United States Navy technical research ship, USS Liberty, by Israeli Air Force jet fighter aircraft and Israeli Navy torpedo boats, on June 8, 1967, during the Six-Day War. The combined air and sea attack killed 34 crew members (naval officers, seamen, two Marines, and one civilian), wounded 170 crew members, and severely damaged the ship” Wikipedia
“Israel attacked the USS Liberty using UNMARKED AIRCRAFT. This is the single fact which proves Israel knew exactly who they were attacking. Israel’s story is that they thought USS Liberty was an Egyptian ship and therefore a legitimate target of war. Were that true, there would be no reason to attack a supposedly Egyptian ship with unmarked aircraft. The only possible reason to use unmarked aircraft to attack the ship is that Israel knew it was an American ship and intended to sink it, then to blame the attack on Egypt.”
“Fifteen years after the attack, an Israeli pilot approached Liberty survivors and then held extensive interviews with former Congressman Paul N. (Pete) McCloskey about his role. According to this senior Israeli lead pilot, he recognized the Liberty as American immediately, so informed his headquarters, and was told to ignore the American flag and continue his attack. He refused to do so and returned to base, where he was arrested.” WRH
