The Iraq War Morphs Into The Iranian War, By Paul Craig Roberts

The Iraq War Morphs Into The Iranian War

By Paul Craig Roberts

29/04/08 "ICH" - -- -It is 1939 all over again. The world waits helplessly for the next act of naked aggression by rogue states. Only this time the rogue states are not the Third Reich and Fascist Italy. They are the United States and Israel.

The targeted victims are not Poland and France, but Iran, Syria, the remains of the Palestinian West Bank and southern Lebanon.

The American mass media is overjoyed. War coverage attracts viewers and sells advertising.

The neoconservatives are ecstatic. Hegemony uber alles is back on track.

The US Air Force can’t wait “to show what it can do.”

Defense contractors see no end of the profits.

Under cover of the mayhem and propaganda, Israel can grab the remains of the West Bank and have another go at grabbing the water resources of southern Lebanon.

Unlike the US and Israel, Iran is neither occupying any other country’s territory nor threatening to invade another country. Nevertheless, propaganda against Iran is spouting from US and Israeli mouths at an increasing rate. Lie after lie rolls off the tongues of leaders of the “two great democracies.”

Continued . . .

The script

the neocons are following a plan. unless stopped, they will continue.

"three if by air"


They came into office with the agenda and nothing (solving existing American problems or reacting to crisises, Katrina) was going to get in the way of that. The first clue was Cheney's secret Energy Task Force 4 days after taking office. Bush did not campaign on an "Energy Program"'; I don't believe he mentioned it at all, but it is the first thing they focused on.

Ah, I remember the good old days when presidents at least pretended to serve the American People and address our problems. No more, now it's just do the bidding of their elite benefactors.

9/11 Truth ends the 9/11 Wars

This time around

its "the Iranian problem".

they officially stopped accepting dollars for their oil yesterday . . . this is their sin. keep reminding the uninformed that there is no gas shortage . . . the crisis is the dollar . . it is the end of an empire.

something for the history books

If so

it may be outright civil rebellion in American streets

End of Empire.

Do NOT underestimate the Russians and the Chinese.

AND the Swiss.

Who are betting BILLIONS on DECADES of trade relations with Iran.

They know something most of us don't know.

The "Empire" WILL end.

Air Force or no Air Force.

Question remains.

Will the Republic?

The CONSTITUTION is NOT going to "collapse" into pulverized dust no matter how much thermate/explosives or planes they throw at it

Capital is now completely stateless.

The U.S. economy is poised for collapse and the wizard kleptomaniacs have looted the U.S. Treasury about as much as they can at this point.

Who's to say (or know) how much of their "wealth" has not already been converted to gold and/or Euros and is sitting off shore? In Switzerland even.

Why do you think the Euro is trading at about $1.60 USD right now?

These criminals care not one wit for the U.S. or the American people, that was made quite clear on 9/11/01, yes?

Think about it.

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

So in other words...

... one might think of this as an "opportunity".

The Bastards of the universe will (none too) soon be leaving US to our own devices, to fend for ourselves yet still take the unavoidable calls from their global creditors looking to collect whatever they can from a bled stone.

A chance to reinvent ourselves, to make good on OUR debts, taking lessons from the past, eyes to see our present for what it is... and nothing but our wits and opposable thumbs to build something even better upon the ruins of a failed bureaucratic system. A system which the bastards were at least kind enough to point out its weaknesses.

A republic can be revived from the least of green... I see plenty of long grass this spring.

That's a very good sign.

rampant, blatant, bald face lying is now the norm.

It is frustrating that they continue to get away with crime after crime and lie after lie. The most frustrating thing is that there is still a segment of the American populace that believes their weak assed bullshit. It is like seeing a train barreling toward you in slow motion, yet you have no power to stop the train, nor get off the tracks. I believe they will invade Iran before Bush leaves office, if he leaves office. Murderous bastards!

Haven't seen this article by PCR...

posted here yet, It's deserving of it's own blog.

"The more likely explanation for the US invasion of Iraq is the neoconservative Bush Regime's commitment to the defense of Israeli territorial expansion. There is no such thing as a neoconservative who is not allied with Israel. Israel hopes to steal all of the West Bank and southern Lebanon for its territorial expansion. An American colonial regime in Iraq not only buttresses Israel from attack, but also can pressure Syria and Iran from giving support to the Palestinians and Lebanese. The Iraqi war is a war for Israeli territorial expansion. Americans are dying and bleeding to death financially for Israel. Bush's "war on terror" is a hoax that serves to cover US intervention in the Middle East in behalf of "greater Israel." "

Here's the same article at with the above paragraph, suspiciously, omitted.

This probably all began with the JCIT in 1979,

for more on this I recommend starting here:

1979 - The Birth Year of "International Terrorism"

Clearly, there are multiple levels of motives and "benefits" at work here, as in any operation of this duration and magnitude.

That fact that another carrier task force is now in theater and we have a new moon coming on May 5th and 6th is also quite alarming.

Choose love over fear, brothers and sisters, talk to your friends, family and neighbors.

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

New moon coming

"That fact that [...] we have a new moon coming on May 5th and 6th is also quite alarming."

Er... Could you elaborate on that?

Military planners like to schedule initial bombing campaigns

at night during new moons (when there is no moon). The nights are also getting shorter as we approach summer, so this is a prime time, unless they want to try and gut it out until late October (until just before the election). This would draw additional suspicion as a classic "October Surprise", though.

Today's Pentagon briefing confirms two carriers in the gulf region.

Iran has also stopped accepting US dollars for oil.

I will be quite happy to be completely wrong about this "prediction", btw.

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

This is an outstanding thread....

911 Bloggers have been letting it rip on the neoconservatives and Israel. I must say, Paul Craig Roberts has hit a crescendo in his criticism and may have inspired some entries above?

Roberts has made no bones on how he feels about the Bush regime, the present war and the prospect of another war. He's really damning our government.

Robert writes a question toward the end of his latest contribution:

"Why does the rest of the world continue to receive political representatives from a war criminal government?"

Whoa! That's about as blunt as it can be put IMHO!

I also laud LeftWright's choice of words:

"The U.S. economy is poised for collapse and the wizard kleptomaniacs have looted the U.S. Treasury about as much as they can at this point."

They couldn't be described any better than "wizard kleptomaniacs"!

...don't believe them!


Remember the days when the insurgents in Iraq were being morphed into Al-Qaeda?

Why isn't Dick Cheney in prison?
