Iran war: Countdown to Israel doomsday

{XANIEL’S NOTE : I have said it before and I’m saying it NOW,

I strongly feel that Israeli Leadership is deliberately trying to start the very war that will destroy Israel and it’s citizens.

WHY??  I do not know, but as hard as Prime Minister Benjamin Nut-An-Yoyo and his girlfriend,

Defense Minister Ehud (..do these high heals make my butt look big?..)Barak, are pushing things,

I have no choice but to suspect that Israel is indeed a sacrificial lamb for some twisted evil Elite ritual designed with the hope that it will keep them in power, if not for a little bit longer.

Just a guess, but on rare occasions I have been known to be right.

I hope this isn’t one of those occasions,  for the sake of Israel’s citizens ! }~~~Xaniel777

“Why on earth is the Zionist regime making threats against Iran? How many missiles have they prepared themselves for? 10,000? 20,000? 50,000? 100,000? 150,000 or more?”

General Ahmad Vahidi — Iran’s Defense Minister

These words were expressed in full force on November 27, 2011 by Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi.

He warned Tel Aviv that “If the Zionist regime ever decides to carry out its threats against Iran, the Basij forces will exact revenge on the entity for its long span of bullying oppressed nations.”

There is a recently renewed call for military strike on Iranian nuclear sites on the part of the Zionist regime.

It is reported that the voices coming from the offices of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak about Iran are “worrisome.” 

Stanley Fischer’s Gloomy Outlook

Governor of the Bank of Israel Stanley Fischer says that Iran strike spells security and financial crisis and that the entity is gearing to deal with recession. 

“The primary responsibility of each country is to maintain its security. It is possible to describe situations of widespread war which would be very difficult to deal with. We are preparing for a major crisis and for security situation which is much worse,” Fischer said in an interview with Channel 2 News on Friday. 

Saudi Arabia has warned Israel that it would shoot down any Israeli fighter jets that enter its airspace en route to an attack on Iran.

However, other sources says Riyadh might allow Israeli jets to enter its airspace if Israel coordinates the military strike with Washington and does not embark on military strike unilaterally. 

More to the point, Western presstitute media have ratcheted up an anti-Iran campaign at the behest of their Zionist masters with the express intention of rending any possible Israeli strike on Iran legitimate in the eyes of the western community.

In line with this satanic policy and in order to add fuel to fire, Reuters reported that “Iran has stepped up work to develop a nuclear warhead,” quoting Israeli newspapers as saying on Sunday.

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak

On Thursday, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak shamelessly lied to the media and said that US President Barack Obama had received a new National Intelligence Estimate to the effect that Iran had made significant and surprising progress toward military nuclear capability.

However, US officials said on Thursday the United States still believes that Iran is not on the verge of having a nuclear weapon and that Tehran has not made a decision to pursue one. 

A White House National Security Council spokesman refuted the Israeli reports, saying the US intelligence assessment of Iran’s nuclear activities had not changed since earlier this year. 

“We believe that there is time and space to continue to pursue a diplomatic path, backed by growing international pressure on the Iranian government,” the spokesman said. “We continue to assess that Iran is not on the verge of achieving a nuclear weapon.”

Unfortunately, the international community is prone to forget that Israel is the thieving entity and that it is an irresponsible regime with a huge arsenal of at least 300 nuclear warheads at its disposal.

It is excruciatingly manifest that the nuclear reality of Israel and what immeasurable destruction it can wreak on the entire region and the world are often consigned to oblivion and any suggestion to that effect is brushed away with a gesture of nonchalance.

Ironically, global ignorance is turned into an asset for the Israeli regime in order to carry on or out with its threats against Iran.

In fact, what torments the Israeli officials tremendously is that Iran is paying no attention to the US-orchestrated illegal sanctions.

Iran believes that the sanctions are like obstacles placed on its path by ill wishers and that they have to be overcome in one way or another.

In other words, Iran stands tall against the bullies and their heavy-handed tactics.

That is why the Israeli top echelons have taken recourse to lies and rumors about the country. 

An Iranian long-range Shahab-3 missile being launched during the second day of military exercises, codenamed Great Prophet-7 July 3, 2012.

From a military point of view, Iran is an extremely powerful country. In July, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) test-fired indigenous missiles in a three-day military drill codenamed The Great Prophet 7. 

A number of missiles were test-fired including Shahab (Meteor) 1, 2, 3, Khalij Fars (Persian Gulf), Tondar (Lightning), Fateh (Victor) and Zelzal (earthquake) as well as Qiam (Uprising)

The Pentagon has recently confessed to the “lethality and effectiveness” of Iranian missiles, saying that Tehran is a “formidable force” in defending its territory. 

According to a June 29 report by the Pentagon, “Iran has boosted the lethality and effectiveness of existing systems by improving accuracy and developing new submunition payloads” that “extend the destructive power over a wider area than a solid warhead.”

Signed by US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, the report had been submitted to the four US congressional defense committees to comply with a 2010 directive to provide an annual classified and unclassified assessment of Iran’s military power. 

Be that as it may, Iran’s prodigious military capabilities, as it has often pointed out, are defensive and will only be used against aggressors and those who threaten the country’s territorial integrity. 

But if Israel ever ventures into a military strike against Iran, it must ask itself this question first: how many Iranian missiles can the Zionist entity take 10,000? 20,000? 50,000? 100,000? 150,000 or more?

Israelis citizens oppose war with Iran despite govt’s hawkish stance

 { XANIEL’S NOTE : It looks to me like the Citizens of Israel are as sick of their Leadership as we are with ours! }~~~Xaniel777

From RT NEWS 

August 17, 2012

Tel Aviv’s bellicose stance against Iran’s nuclear program has sparked a pushback in Israeli society against politicians’ ambitions to strike Iran, with many demanding a peaceful resolution to tensions.

More than 400 Israelis, including prominent academics, have signed an online petition appealing to Israel Defense Forces (IDF) pilots not to obey hypothetical orders to bomb Iran.

The petition was initiated by Vardit Shalfi, a left-wing activist and editor of online magazine The Occupation, who said that there are many public campaigns against a war with Iran, but “none of them appealed to the executive level, the pilots.”

The document calls a possible military strike on Iran a “highly mistaken gamble” that would come “at an exorbitant price,” and would not halt Iran’s nuclear program. 

“You have the option of saying ‘No,’ the petition addressed to the pilots reads, according to Haaretz. “Certainly, this is not a simple option. It involves profound professional and moral dilemmas, and carries the risk of losing a career which is important to you and also the possibility of being prosecuted.

Nevertheless, it is your duty to consider most carefully and seriously the possibility that by saying the little word ‘No,’ you will be rendering an important and vital service to the State of Israel and all who live here.

This service would be infinitely more important than blind obedience to this particular order.”

The petition also warns of legal responsibility for the potential consequence of strikes against atomic facilities: “Israel as a country, as well as those carrying out the bombing might be charged with war crimes.” 

Law professor Chaim Gans of Tel Aviv University argues that such military action would be illegal, and that “it is clear that the consequences of such a war would be destructive in every possible way.”

Some say that the strike could be legal, but still cause serious blowback.

 “There is no legal problem with striking Iran,” petitioner and Tel Aviv University law professor Menachem Mautner said, but he warned of the possibility of “very serious and far-reaching consequences” for Israel if it attacks Iran without US backing. 

Similar petitions have also been circulated among Israeli society.

Physicians for Human Rights-Israel has sent a letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak outlining their fears about the consequences of a potential attack: “We will be the ones you will seek out to heal and put together what you have broken. We call on you: Don’t break. First do no harm,” Iranian Press TV reported the letter as saying.

Israel readying for war

Israel seems to be preparing for possible military action.

A nationwide missile alert system has been tested this week, and gas mask distribution centers have been created across the country.

Contractors have also been hired to fortify hospitals, schools and shelters, the AP reported.

Tel Aviv has engaged in long-running diplomatic appeals to halt or slow Iran’s nuclear program.

They insist that Tehran is working to develop nuclear weapons, while the Iranian government claims their program is for civilian purposes. 

Tel Aviv has repeatedly warned in the past few months that the window of opportunity for military action is narrowing, claiming that economic sanctions are incapable of stopping Tehran from acquiring the alleged nuclear weapons.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak have implied that an Israeli military attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities would be launched in the fall, before the US presidential election in November.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s main goal in this crisis is delaying Tehran’s nuclear program by a few years, even if Israel cannot entirely halt Iran’s nuclear program, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Defense Minister Ehud Barak said in a speech today to the Israeli Parliament that taking action against Iran was “not simple, without risks or unintended consequences … I believe that it is inestimably more complicated, inestimably more dangerous, inestimably more complex, and inestimably more expensive in terms of human life and resources to deal with a nuclear Iran in the future.” 

On Sunday, an anonymous senior Israeli politician (believed by the media to be Ehud Barak) said that Israel had already decided to act alone, the National Post reported.

 “We can’t wait to find out one morning that we relied on the Americans but were fooled because the Americans didn’t act. Israel is strong and Israel is responsible, and will do what it has to do,” the official said.

Tel Aviv has openly stated that it is prepared to bomb Iranian nuclear facilities.

A history of pre-emptive action

IDF forces carried out similar missions in 1981 and 2007, when they attacked unfinished nuclear reactors in Iraq and Syria.

Israeli President Shimon Peres challenged the prospect of a unilateral, pre-emptive Israeli strike in a televised address, saying that “Now, it’s clear to us that we can’t do it alone.

We can delay. It’s clear to us we have to proceed together with America. There are questions about coordination and timing, but as serious as the danger is, this time at least we are not alone.”

Other prominent Israeli politicians also oppose Israel making unilateral strikes.

Recently-resigned Kadima leader Tzipi Livni announced in May that Netanyahu is threatening the existence of the Jewish state with its hawkish stance against Iran.

Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert also spoke out against the bellicose rhetoric, saying that “There is no reason at this time not to talk about a military effort, but definitely not to initiate an Israeli military strike.”

Washington has warned Israel on numerous occasions against premature action, insisting that time needs to be allowed for diplomacy and sanctions against Tehran to work.

On Tuesday, US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said that military action against Tehran should be a “last resort.”

Panetta made some of his strongest comments yet on curbing Tehran’s nuclear ambitions during a visit to Jerusalem earlier this month: “We will not allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. Period,” he told reporters.

Only 22 percent of Israelis believe Panetta’s statement, according to an August 8 poll by the Dahaf Institute.

The survey also showed that a majority of Israelis believe that a nuclear Iran would pose a threat to Israel, and most say that Israel needs US assistance to stop Tehran’s nuclear program.

Some 61 percent of Israelis believe Iran should not be attacked without consent from the US.

Jos's AvatarPosted by Jos – without prejudice – Member #22477

 In June-July, the Akula-class submarine, an attack warship capable of carrying long-range ballistic missiles, travelled in the Gulf of Mexico patrolling the US coast.

The US satellites and hydro-acoustic sensors failed to spot it.

The US Navy spotted only the submarine’s tail when it was leaving the waters of the Gulf.

Without breaking international law a Russian nuclear-powered submarine has successfully accomplished its training mission near the coast of the US.

The submarine, which is equipped with long-range cruise missiles, shuttled for one month in the Gulf of Mexico without being detected by the US Navy, Washington Free Beacon reports citing unnamed high ranking sources in the Pentagon.

The US Navy detected the submarine only when it was leaving the waters of the Gulf.

Without violating international legislation and the sovereignty of another state the Russian Navy has managed to accomplish several tactical and strategic tasks. First, the crew has completed a successful training mission.

Second, the Russian military forces have received data about the routes of the US submarines and ships in the Gulf.

Russia has also showed the US that an absolutely flawless security system does not exist, Vladimir Yevseyev, head of the Center of social and political studies, said:

“This is a good lesson for the US, demonstrating that it should not pursue its foreign policy interests all over the world using force. Other states also have some military potential.

If the US pursues its national interests only by means of force a boomerang effect will take place. The US should realize that it is also vulnerable because the anti-missile system is not efficient enough when it comes to cruised missiles, that can fly at low altitudes.

Nuclear submarines carry cruise missiles, that cannot be detected using conventional means designed for repelling ballistic missiles attacks. Cruise missiles create a breach in anti-missile defense.

They show that an ideal anti-missile system does not exist. This destroys the image of the US’ invincibility, which backs its policy of all permissiveness on the global arena.”

I do not support EITHER of the put-up party candidates

 

From Urban Survival

By George Ure – August 17, 2012

Ure “Equal Opportunity” Offender

Thursday was a most confusicating day for ya’ll’s Ures truly:  I had two readers write in and say they were so offended by our biased coverage here that they were leaving and would never be back.

“OK, what’s the problem?” you may be asking, since everyone is free to come and go as they please, since this is not an airport, bus station, and the closest thing to a Viper team we’ve got is a few copperheads on the back 12.

Well, it’s their stated reasons:

  1. One departed claiming we were writing things so obviously pro-Obama that he could no longer stand to be around for the odd bits of humor. 

  2. The other declared he wouldn’t be back because our coverage was “supporting the fascists in the Romney camp” blatantly and constantly.

Here’s the  ugly fact of the matter, which I hope you remember:

  • I do not support EITHER of the put-up party candidates.  As I have stated before:  The Presidency is no longer an election.  It’s an auction and I’m going to vote for whoever shows up on the ballot, regardless of party, who has collected the least money.  Hopefully Ron Paul.

  • BOTH big-checkbook picks are being less than forthcoming:  Where is Romney’s income tax returns and where’s Obama’s missing docs?  Neither is “putting it out there.”

Since I am working at the moment on a system of news and marketing analysis that uses, at its core, word frequently analysis in new and novel ways, I have been particularly sensitive to single-word and short-phrase word use by both put-up[ party (corporate) shills. 

I won’t use names, but single word searches will show how the first two of the words/phrases come from the candidates while the third was broadcast by a corporate media outlet:

I’ve included links to this distasteful bullshit, since it’s only a half-step in marketing from the old Bushista “You’re with us or against us” simplistica.

The fact is that there is no essential difference between the so-called corporate-sponsored “choices” couldn’t be more clear than a list of 40-points compared in a Michael Snyder piece at The American Dream this week. 

Among his 40-points in common?

1. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both supported TARP.

2. Mitt Romney supported Barack Obama’s “economic stimulus” packages.

3. Mitt Romney says that Barack Obama’s bailout of the auto industry was actually his idea.

4. Neither candidate supports immediately balancing the federal budget.

5. They both believe in big government and they both have a track record of being big spenders while in office.

6. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both fully support the Federal Reserve.

7. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are both on record as saying that the

 president should not question the “independence” of the Federal Reserve.

8. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have both said that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke did a good job during the last financial crisis.

You owe it to yourself to click over here and read his whole column

The list goes on and on…

Minus the two readers that left in a huff this week because of our supposed support for both candidates, I’ll ask you (possibly our sole remaining reader) to consider what we have said before:

  The is so much corporate and ultra-rich money pouring in (and let’s not let the K Street mafia off the hook here) that we have reduced the Office of the President to soap marketing techniques.

To my way of thinking, there hasn’t been much change from George Bush to Barack Obama (except sales at gun shows and ammo buys for federal agencies.)  

We’re still occupying roughly the same number of countries, still exporting jobs, still giving tax breaks to crooks and say, how come Jon Corzine isn’t on trial?

There is only one party in America – It’s the corporate party and the rules are simple:

  • You can screw the 99-percent six ways to Sunday, but if you are good and raise funds for the 1 percent, it’s a get out of jail free card.

  • Stupid advertising, or worse, advertising to reinvents racial tensions and base emotional responses while it reinforces “us versus them thinking is fine, so long as it works.

  • And, above all, you gots to have money (or connections) to be in the game.

This is demonstrated in a note overnight from our Winnipeg news analyst who explains more of the heresy and logic-defying conduct of American politics quire nicely. 

Be sure and read his links:

Dear Mr. Ure,  

Here is an article by News Corporation’s “New York Post”.

A former congressman has secured comfortable accommodations for a growing family.

The future requires nurturing to descend from the past, does it not?

Prior federal administration from the other side may not have been a stranger to the benefactors, but one must look elsewhere for that.   

I close with mention from The White House regarding the recently celebrated Iftar Dinner that marked the end of Ramadan.

Bon-appétit and in God we trust.”

Uh…right.  But just to make sure folks are “getting it” let’s see if we can update what in marketing terms would be our collateral

For example, how does this sound?

“I pledge allegiance to the corpgov

and to the cash flows for which it stands,

one nation totally marketable,

with tax breaks and bailouts for all.”

FEMA Face-Off, III

So the phone rings yesterday while I’m in town at the hardware store.  Elaine takes a message. 

It’s a well-informed and trusted source. 

So I call him back and I’ll paraphrase his report:

“Here’s what’s going on at FEMA.  Word is Region 6 is that there is a serious moving coming to replace all the FEMA Regional Directors – who are now presidential appointees – with professional administrators – career bureaucrats.”

Oh.

Well, this is an interesting development which could be argued either way. 

On the one hand, it could be that presidential appointments result in cluster f***’s since they do not have the depth of knowledge in disaster operations that career people do.

But wait! 

FEMA is, at the same time, as we reported earlier this week, laying off experienced volunteers with (in at least one case) 10-years of experience working disasters.

Hmmm.. 

Could this be the “shadow government” (that’s the administrative law side which is really cozy with the K Street mafia, since agency “professionals” often end up as “captive regulators” once out?) 

I mean we’ve seen this at the FDA with ex-officials getting huge “jobs” in Big Pharma…..so why not put such a deal in place for FEMA? 

Besides, with less free-thinking regular humans in the administrative chain, the Commander in Chief would be much more free to rule by decree….

So watch for it, coming to a federal emergency management outfit near you.

More unelected bureaucrats, less citizen control, more decree-driven government.

No Kritstallnacht in America, nossiree.  We’re us a having a 50-year twilight…kind of like Rome.

President Eisenhower called it right….although he missed Big Pharma and the entitlements..but there’s the outline.

— 

I’m sure something I’ve written here this morning will offend someone. 

But in case not, please do visit again Monday morning when we’ll once again peer through the fog to get the very first view of the rocks this great ship of state seems destined to hit. 

It’s a Titanic adventure.
