Pat Buchanan: Petraeus points to war with Iran

"Is it fair to say that the Iranian-backed special groups in Iraq are responsible for the murder of hundreds of American soldiers and thousands of Iraqi soldiers and civilians?"
"It certainly is. ... That is correct," said Petraeus.
The following day, Petraeus told the House Armed Services Committee, "Unchecked, the 'special groups' pose the greatest long-term threat to the viability of a democratic Iraq."
Translation: The United States is now fighting the proxies of Iran for the future of Iraq. The general's testimony is forcing Bush's hand, for consider the question it logically raises.

Will we expose the truth about 9/11 and end the 9/11 wars before the next one breaks out?

There is a good chance

there will be more wars and even a draft.

I don't believe Petraeus at all.
Where is the proof?
Where are the facts?
This is just more lies like we heard about Iraq that there were WMD and Saddam had ties to Al Qaeda and 911.

Did you see all those badges/medals/stars on Petraeus ?

I have discovered something amazing: men will die for ribbons - Napoleon Bonaparte

Would Iran be so stupid as to provoke a war with the war-salivating nuke-brandishing aircraft carrier-brandishing US who makes up reasons, who executes false flag attacks to start wars ? It makes no sense. YOu don't get anywhere near a rabid 1500 pound grizzly bear.

We have been lied into every war since 1898 thru false flag attacks, mass media propaganda and false flag set ups.
The newspapers for 100 years have lit the flames of warmongering.
Led by the Tavistock institiute, the premier propaganda arm of the NWO, who is controlled by the Royal Institute of International Affairs (the parent of the CFR).
The TI controls 200 think tanks in the US many funded by Federal monies such as the Rand Corporation and the Stanford Research Instititute .
In 1946 they declared a propanganda war on the US to destroy the US and its constitution and to put the American people under constant mental/social attack like a soldier in war so we would accept the solutions dictated us thru the mass media cartel which is TI's mouth piece.
All the wars can be attributed to this deadly duo: the mass media cartel and the false flag attacks/deceptions/set ups.
Oh, I forgot to add the central banks in this.
The Federal Reserve has the money to buy off everyone.

The Battleship Maine sinking a false flag (1898 Spanish War),
The Lusitania sinking a false flag deception (WW1),
German demonization by the press (WW1),
Pearl Harbor (WW2) - did you know that the Manhatten project was started December 6,1941 (one day before Pearl Harbor),
UN (the vehicle for one world dictatorship) intervention in Korea specifically to show the world its viability. US troops betrayed by UN. (Korean War)
Gulf of Tonkin,
Kuwait incubator baby lie (Gulf War 1)
Bush giving the deceiving green light to Saddam to invade Kuwait,
911 (Gulf War 2),
Now, its Petraeus determining that our nation attack Iran without one ounce of proof. I don't believe him at all based on lies for Iraq and Afghan war. The real general Fallon was fired just a short while ago.

The US military has turned into an army for the secret rulers, NWO, international bankers, Committee of 300.
Everyone needs to know this.
The US has turned into a tool for the NWO for one world dictatorship and now its turning into a full court press.

Petraeus has certainly betrayed 300,000,000 people !

You ask, "Will we expose the truth about 9/11....?"

The answer is no. This country lacks the courage to confront these people. And they know that.

Keep in mind

that every time the Israelis invade Lebanon, they seize "Iranian" arms which can then be used to show "Iranian influence" anywhere and at any time.

This is not to say that the Iranians don't have legitimate interests in Iraq (their most significant neighbor) or that they aren't aiding groups within Iraq.

It's always important to remember that "strategies of tension" work at multiple levels (i.e. within communities, between religious sects, between nations and between "economic alliances").

As long as divide and conquer keeps working, it will remain the strategy of first choice for the ruling elites.

As unfortunate as the situation in Iraq is, I think that the Iraqis and Iranians have been on to the scam from the get go. These ancient cultures have been dealing with invaders and occupiers for centuries, after all.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

Gates: Iran boosts support for militias

By LOLITA C. BALDOR, Associated Press Writer

Iranian support for militias in Iraq has grown, top U.S. defense leaders said Friday, asserting that recent battles in Basra gave the Iraqis an eye-opening view of Iran's increased negative role there.

More broadly, the outlook for more progress toward stabilizing Iraq and reducing the U.S. troop presence is clouded by several other potential pitfalls in coming months, including the prospect of increased violence with the approach of provincial Iraqi elections this fall, Gen. David Petraeus said in an interview at the Pentagon with a group of reporters.
Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, also cited the return of refugees and the release of security detainees as potential sources of instability to be considered as he determines when, and at what pace, U.S. troop withdrawals should resume after July. He reiterated that while he hopes further withdrawals are possible he will be careful not to reduce so quickly as to jeopardize the security gains of the past several months.

In separate remarks, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said the U.S. will be as aggressive as possible to counter the increase in Iranian support for militias, adding that the Iraqis "are in a position themselves to bring some pressures to bear on Iran."

Speaking after a series of hearings on Capitol Hill mapping out progress in Iraq, Gates also acknowledged that future troop withdrawals will go more slowly than he had initially hoped last year.

"I think that the process has gone a little slower," Gates told a Pentagon news conference Friday. He said that plans — endorsed by President Bush on Thursday — to halt troop withdrawals at least until mid-September would make it a "real challenge" to pull out five additional brigades by the end of the year.

Last year Gates said he was holding out hope that the U.S. presence in Iraq could drop to about 10 brigades — or roughly 100,000 troops — by the end of this year. On Thursday, he told senators he had abandoned that hope.

Iran's role has been one of the complicating factors.

"I think that there is some sense of an increased level of supply of (Iranian) weapons and support to these groups," said Gates, referring to what the military has termed "special groups" of Shiite militants. "But whether it's a dramatic increase over recent weeks, I just don't know."

Gates and Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said recent clashes between Iraqi security forces and Shiite militias in Basra highlighted the increase in Iranian support.

"I think the Iraqi government now has a clearer view of the malign impact of Iran's activities inside Iraq," said Gates. "I think they have had what I would call a growing understanding of that negative Iranian role. But I think what they encountered in Basra was a real eye-opener for them."

In his interview, Petraeus would not discuss Iran on the record.

Late last year, military commanders suggested Iran may be slowing the flow of illegal weapons across the border into Iraq. And Tehran recently helped broker a truce between the Iraqi government and radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, whose Mahdi Army is battling U.S. and Iraqi troops in Baghdad.

On Friday, Gates and Mullen discounted that suspected decrease in weapons flow.

In related comments, Ryan Crocker, the U.S. ambassador in Iraq, said Friday that the Bush administration wants to test whether Iran is really interested in talking to the United States about Iraq.

Crocker said that even though Iran has backed out of recent appointments to meet with him for such discussions, he's ready and waiting for the meeting. He said the administration thinks it's worthwhile to make the case to Iran that it should butt out of Iraq's internal affairs.

Gates, meanwhile, said Friday that he doubts Muqtada al-Sadr would be subject to arrest by U.S. forces. Al-Sadr is believed to be in Iran while elements of his militia in the Sadr City section of the capital fight Iraqi government troops supported by the U.S. military.

Asked if an arrest was possible, Gates said: "I would be surprised along those lines — a move to arrest him. He is a significant political figure. We want him to work within the political process. He has a large following. It is important that he become a part of the process, if he is not already."

Gates said anyone who is prepared to "work within the political process in Iraq, and peacefully, are not enemies of the United States."

Petraeus told reporters that al-Sadr's organization has to be reckoned with.

"It is a movement that must be addressed and, to varying degrees, accommodated," Petraeus said. He added that he hopes al-Sadr will maintain the cease-fire he declared last August.

"We are concerned about the maintenance of the cease-fire," Petraeus said. "It has been one of the three or four most important factors in reducing the level of violence" since late summer.

A senior aide to al-Sadr was assassinated Friday in the holy city of Najaf, officials said. Authorities immediately announced a citywide curfew and security forces were seen deploying on the streets. The killing threatened to raise tensions amid a violent standoff between al-Sadr's Mahdi Army militia and the U.S.-backed Iraqi government.
Mullen, appearing alongside Gates at the news conference, said he regards al-Sadr as "somewhat of an enigma."

"So, I think Sadr clearly is a very important and key player in all this," Mullen added. "Exactly where he's headed and what impact he'll have long term, it's, I think, is out there still to be determined."

While Gates said troop withdrawals will go more slowly than he initially wanted, he reiterated that he is "confident that we will have a lower number of troops" in Iraq next year.

You can feel the underlying current... attack on Iran has been building for years, now. We can all feel the underlying current just as with the march up to the attack on Iraq. This regime has to "finish the job".

Petraeus's testimony does mark the beginning of WWIII. It's an utter shame that it's come to this! We need some Betrayus stickers at this point.

...don't believe them!
