Preparing for World War III, Targeting Iran - Part I: Global Warfare

04-08-2010 18:58

U.S. Global Command and Control System
War preparations to attack Iran are in "an advanced state of readiness". Hi-tech weapons systems including nuclear warheads are fully deployed. Public opinion, swayed by media hype is tacitly supportive, indifferent or ignorant as to the likely impacts of what is upheld as an ad hoc "punitive" operation directed against Iran's nuclear facilities. The prospect of war against Iran is presented to public opinion as an issue among others. It is not front-page news. The devastating consequences of a nuclear war are either trivialised or simply not mentioned. The fact that an attack on Iran could lead to escalation and potentially unleash a "global war" is not a matter of concern. The scale of anti-war protest in relation to Iran has been minimal in comparison to the mass demonstrations which preceded the 2003 bombing and invasion of Iraq.

Preparing for World War III, Targeting Iran +

02-08-2010 02:59

"When the spoofs first appeared on the web, not a few readers took the opening paragraphs seriously, because there was such a ring of psychological truth to them.
Anyone who ignores the psychological factor in politics must have been in hibernation during the eight years of the Bush-Cheney pathology. When sane military professionals were testifying to the perils of new wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the neocon faction followed its insane instincts and the bombs began to fall. Dr. Justin A. Frank, an American psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, authored a brilliant study entitled Bush on the Couch.(25) Relying solely on published speeches, statements, and interviews, Frank diagnosed the president as seriously mentally ill, actually a sociopath. Were Dr. Frank to examine statements on the public record by Netanyahu, Barak, Peres, Lieberman, Tzipi Livni among others, he might come to a similar conclusion. When, at a recent public speaking event in Germany, I asked the IPPNW member aboard the Mavi Marmora, how he, as a practicing psychiatrist, would evaluate the mental state of the Israeli leadership, he quipped that he was merely a psychotherapist, and did not deal with cases of grave psychosis."

Wkileaks founder 'dissapointed' in Gates

31-07-2010 18:47

"Secretary Gates could have used his time, as other nations have done, to
announce a broad inquiry into these killings," the statement said. "He could
have announced specific criminal investigations into the deaths we have
exposed. He could have announced a panel to hear the heartfelt dissent of
U.S. soldiers, who know this war from the ground. He could have apologized
to the Afghani people.
> "But he did none of these things. He decided to treat these issues and the
> countries affected by them with contempt. Instead of explaining how he would
> address these issues, he decided to announce how he would suppress them.
> "This behavior is unacceptable. We will not be suppressed. We will continue
> to expose abuses by this administration and others."

US Treasury Running on Fumes

30-07-2010 17:39

"The White House is screaming like a stuck pig. WikiLeaks’ release of the Afghan War Documents “puts the lives of our soldiers and our coalition partners at risk.”

What nonsense. Obama’s war puts the lives of American soldiers at risk, and the craven puppet state behavior of “our partners” in serving as US mercenaries is what puts their troops at risk."

The Wikileaks documents published this week proved US helicopters, drones and warplanes had been shot down by surface-to-air heat-seeking missiles and not, as military spokesmen kept claiming, by artillery and ground fire.
Obviously no one in the Pentagon was eager to recall the Cold War against the Soviets when the Americans shipped hundreds of the shoulder-held Stingers to the Afghan
