THE NEW AMERICAN CENTURY is a compelling factual history of neoconservatism and its influence on US Foreign Policy in the Middle East during the first decade of the twenty-first century. Click on image above for details.

For years I have been writing at this blog and elsewhere about the inevitability of a ‘final confrontation’ between Israel and the US, and Iran and its allies, Hezbollah and Hamas. Today US President Obama moved a step closer toward that final confrontation.

In rhetoric reminiscent of the threats Bush made about Iraq ‘coming clean’ about its nuclear activities, Obama has told Iran that it must ‘come clean’ about its nuclear activities. At a news conference at the conclusion of the G-20 meeting, Obama told reporters "Iran is on notice that when we meet with them on Oct. 1 they are going to have to come clean and they are going to have to make a choice." He went on to say that if the Iranian’s didn’t ‘give ground’ that they would be “on a path that is going to lead to confrontation”.

The world seems to have learnt nothing from the mistakes of the Iraq war and the deceit that led up to it. The Middle East is headed down the path to disaster that has been instigated by Zionists and neoconservatives.

This is not about Iran pursuing nuclear weapons; this is about Israel seeking regime change in Iran and using the ‘Iran has a nuclear weapons program’ meme to con the world into bringing about that regime change for them. Once regime change has been affected, Israel will feel free to deal with Hezbollah and Hamas. This they will do using any attack against Iran as cover arguing that in doing so they would be fighting a pre-emptive war – a war that this time there will be no going back from.

The world should wake up before this nonsense blows up in all of our faces – yet again.

A confrontation between Iran and Israel is slowly being ginned up, of that in my opinion, there's no doubt.However, listening to Ahmadinejad and that gold plated half wit Gaddafi at the U.N., they are making it easy for the West to sell another faux crusade into the kill more Arabs, because its current coterie of leaders, are best part barking mad.

But having said that Damian, I still agree with your analysis.

As for the Palestinians, there's never going to be a viable "Palestinian State" all that has passed before as peace talks, and the so called peace talks of the future, are just time consuming sophistry of the highest order.

The Israeli's have no intention of giving up anything, and the only land the Palestinians will eventually get from them, is the plot they are buried in.

It is a pity most people can't come to terms with this waiting game, because that's what it is.

And sooner or later as you say, all of the opinions on this tragedy will amount to nothing.We are slowly heading for Armageddon and nothing can stop it.

As a matter of fact, they'll be lucky to get even that: the Zionists have repeatedly desecrated Palestinian cemeteries, excavating them for such admirable purposes as the building of luxury hotels for tourists or apartment blocks strictly reserved for Jews only.
