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.

Thursday, June 24, 2010


Last week twelve US warships and at least one Israeli warship passed through the Suez Canal on their way to the Red Sea. Included among the US fleet is the aircraft carrier, USS Harry S Truman. Today we learn that the Israeli Air Force have set up base at a Saudi airfield near Tabuk in north-west Saudi Arabia despite earlier denials from the Saudi government that it had given the Israelis permission to use its airspace to attack Iran. We also learn that American and possibly Israel forces are also gathering at bases in Azerbaijan at the north-west border of Iran.

While Israel’s war against Iran has absolutely nothing to do with Iran’s nuclear weapons program – Iran doesn’t have one and the Israelis and the US are fully aware of that – Israel and the US will need to launch any attack against Iran by first attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities in order to maintain the illusion that the casus belli for the war is, indeed, Iran’s nuclear weapons program. Since many of Iran’s nuclear facilities are in the north-west corner of the country, it should not be surprising that Azerbaijan be used by Israel and the US as a springboard to launch their attack against Iran. However, once the initial attack has been launched, US and Israeli air forces will then likely concentrate on pounding Iranian political and defence institutions for the purpose forcing Iran to capitulate and sue for a peace through the UN which the US will conditionally concede to providing Iran rids itself of President Ahmadinejad and gives up its nuclear program.

But, while the attack on Iran will be seen by the world as the main event, the real purpose for the war will be happening on Israel’s doorstep.

At the same time as Iran is being attacked, Israel, using the excuse of pre-empting retaliation for attacking Iran, will attack both Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in the Gaza and then move to occupy south Lebanon up to the Litani River and the Gaza Strip. Israel will also likely fully occupy the West Bank.

This is the scenario that the US and Israel would prefer to see happen; a quick overwhelming move against all of Israel and America’s enemies that concludes with the defeat of the Iranian regime and, thus, regime change, together with the demise of Hezbollah and Hamas. This then will give the Israelis a free hand in creating a Greater Israel that ultimately includes the Gaza Strip, south Lebanon up to the Litani River, the West Bank and the Golan Heights. It will also provide the US with an even stronger ally in the Middle East and also a neutered enemy.

But can it work the way the Israelis and the US plan?

Invasion of Iran by the US is out of the question, (though the insertion of some special forces is highly likely in order to co-ordinate air strikes). Iran is a vast country that is some three times larger than Iraq. The US, considering its current ground troop commitments in Iraq and Afghanistan would not be able to effectively invade Iran. It would have to rely on an overwhelming aerial bombing campaign in order to prevail.

The instant any attack is launched against Iran, or Hezbollah or Hamas, there will likely be instant retaliation against Israel by at least Hezbollah and possibly Hamas. Both entities would, by this stage, realise that this fight will be to the finish. The fighting therefore will be intense and fearsome and there will be many casualties – mostly, of course, civilians. In a worst case scenario, depending on the intensity of the bombardment of Israel by Hezbollah, Israel may threaten the use of nuclear weapons against Lebanon unless Hezbollah cease their rocket attacks against Israel. Likewise, if Iran retaliates with a rocket attack against Israel, both the US and Israel may threaten the use of nuclear weapons against Iran. In the very worst case scenario, if Iran or Hezbollah used chemical or biological weapons, Israel and /or the US would actually use nuclear weapons with little or no warning in retaliation.

Whatever happens, a war against Iran will have devastating consequences one way or the other and for all sides.

It’s time for the peoples of the world to stand up and be heard before it is too late.

Damian, all your sources for this story are jewish except infowars and its, well . . .
Why do you think these jewish sources are publishing these stories?
What false impressions are they trying to leave do you think?

traducteur said...

The Zionists can't very well use nuclear weapons on their own doorstep, Damian. If they even have any nuclear weapons. They like to fantasize about a world cleansed of goyim, but they have no way of bringing that about.

Damian Lataan said...

James, while many of the stories I've linked to happen to be Jewish sources, you'll also find exactly the same information at other websites including non-Jewish sites. I don't have a problem with Jewish sites or Jews; my beef is with Zionism. I leave it to the reader to check out stuff for themselves.

Trad, I don't think, if push came to shove, that the Zionists of Israel would have too much of a problem using a small nuclear weapon against north Lebanon, Syria or Iran if they thought they could get away with it.

why you think that the Americans and the Israelis think this will be a picnic. we all remember what happened in the war of July 2006 at that time all the world except some countries were against Hezbollah and and Hezbollah won that war and from 2006 till now Hezbollah is increasing it's rockets by quality and quantity so here in Lebanon we are waiting for this war to start cause it will be the end of Israel

"My beefiswith zionism" So does that mean you give a free pass to the jews that follow the talmud which is all about jewish world domination? Zionism is just about a homeland for the jews. The jewish way of life is what the worlds biggest problem is. The sayanim network is not zionism,its jewish. Communism is jewish not zionism. Jews have been kicked out of 82 countries 109 times most of them long before zionism. Zionism is part of the problem,but not the whole. Jews have a homeland now,but most choose to live within non jew nations,why?The jewish way of life thats why. They lie cheat steal and kill non jews to get what they want. The talmud says they can. Get over to to see the full story and learn more about jews.

Nasser, I didn't say it would be a 'picnic' for the Israelis or the Americans; I merely described a likely scenario that they would prefer to happen.

The reality is that Israel could easily crush Lebanon and Hezbollah with overwhelming air and land forces. If they believed they could strike hard and fast enough to avoid a retaliatory strike from Hezbollah then the Israelis would not hesitate to use overwhelming force - especially if it came to a do or die fight, in which case they would threaten to use, or even actually use, nuclear weapons.

While Israel in its propaganda has often accused Iran of being an annihilist state that is prepared to sacrifice itself in order to destroy Israel, it is Israel that is truly the annhilist state inasmuch that it is prepared to annhilate any state that stands in the way of what it considers is its right to become a Greater Israel or its survival.

Israel does not fear Hezbollah nor Iran; what Israel fears most of all is world public opinion turning against it.

Anonymous, I'll just repeat what I said: I don't have a problems with Jews; my beef is with Zionism.

There are individuals from all races, colours and creeds all over the planet that behave like assholes, Jews are not any different from anyone else.

The quicker Jews in Israel and throughout the Diaspora join with the the Palestinian people to rid themselves of Zionism and create a binational OneState solution where Jews and Arabs live in freedom as equals in one land, then the better for all world.

Why is it that when governments fight against other governments, that all the people are suppose to hate each other?

I live in Texas,USA. I do not hate the people of Hamas. I do not hate the people in Lebanon. I do not hate the people in Iran. None of them have harmed me. None of them have killed any of my family.

This should be a fight between the governments and not the people.

As far as religion, I try and study all religions. I do not hold one over another. If a certain religion is over all religions, well that is not my fault that I do not know or understand that. I didn't choose to be born where I did.

My family was ran off there land years ago by U.S. troops. Did you know that Texas was once Mexico? Those of us fortunate to stay in Texas after our families were pushed on the other side of the Rio Grande River are now considered Mexican-Americans.

This is just a messed up world we live in. The people who are wealthy and try to push their policies on other countries just to be able to make more money should not have the right to freedom.

If Iran was smart, they should at least temporarily, agree to letting a hand selection international group go and oversee there nuclear civilian work in an effort to prevent Israel and unfortunately my own country (USA) from attacking. It is just a matter of time before we (americans) clean up our own government through peaceful elections.

Yes i do agree, George W. Bush should be sentenced for war crimes.

If you haven't built a deep, deep bomb shelter, now is the time to start.

The Americans and the Israelis are mad enough to bomb Iran. They don't seem to realize what the outcome will be!

Hang onto your hats!

The Truman is going down to relieve the Eisenhower. My guess is that the Israeli ship is just along to deter the Iranian marines that were headed to Gaza but have turned back now. US forces have been in Azerbaijan since 95 with the understanding that they can only use it for Afghan/Iraq operations and not as a strategic point to attack any of its neighbours. I don't think Iran is in any danger of being invaded just yet... If the US pull out of Afghanistan without the trans Afghanistan pipeline being secured then that's when they'll be looking to invade Iran and secure a different route for Caspian gas and oil.

Well Damian, where do I start. Obviously you are well informed.
You are correct in stating that the zionists are the problem. I have a jewish partner in some things and he has also been my accountant for over 20 years. I believe that he has no idea how bad, evil and totally inhuman a lot of these people are.
There was once a long time ago a certain person who made a whip and chased the money changers out of his Father's temple. He said that they had turned his Fathers house into a den of thieves and robbers. He also said that he knew who they were that called themselves jews but were of the synagogue of satan.
These people have never gone away. They still call themselves jews but are in reality satanists. I don't believe that you could be a zionist and not be in league with satan.
These people control the world's financial systems,newspapers, television, movies, big business, satanic games etc etc etc.
The war with Iran and it is most certainly planned (within two years)is most likely about a resistance to a Rothschilds central bank being forbidden in Iran. It is certainly about control of oil, minerals and all about the zionists plan for world domination. Don't forget who was behind communism, fascism,and all the other isms. The war in Afghanistan is all about protecting their opium poppies and young men are dying everyday for these evil psychopaths.
A great website by a Jew is "real jews news". Best I've seen.
In closing I believe that the new Hitler youth are being sysematically trained all over the world with these satanic computer games. Think about this guys.

Damian Lataan said...

Mike, all I can say is I hope you're right. Unfortunately the pointers say that war is imminent.

Azerbeijan, where US forces have been building up these last two months according to Janes Defence, will accept several more millions of dollars from the US and do as its told. Simple as that.

Anonymous, Jews generally are no more a problem in the world than any other race of people. The vast majority of ordinary Jews, both in Israel and throughout the Diaspora, like 99% of the rest of the population of the planet,are simply interested in getting on with their lives. Zionists on the other hand are not just the enemy of the Palestinians but also of the world - including ordinary Jews.

It's indeed gonna be a rough war between IRAN, Israil and U.S.A!
I'm a proud Iranian citizen. I'm living in The Netherlands right now but I don't think a ditance of 6000 km would keep me away from the war!
Even tough I'm not a muslim I'm ready to defend my country, my people and my proud in this war!
This war is about showing the power so they're gonna get it!
Love Iran, my country, for ever!

... On the other hand, Israel, an NPT-outlaw, reputedly has perhaps 200 A-bombs or so, some of which may be H-bombs, and we've heard claims like "European cities are targets for the Israeli airforce" - suitably paraphrased. In clear text, the Israelis are sufficiently deranged to dare *actually* threatening EU with nukular attack. Note: Some people say, one cannot blame Js as a group for what Zs do. IMHO, the entire I/J/Z-plex is a) indivisible and b) *all* are collectively at fault. Proof: "Not what they say (mostly lies, see Hasbarah), as what (filthy, murdering-to-steal) result they achieve." 62+ years long, and no justice for the hapless, oppressed Palestinians anywhere near in sight.

This is not to say that there are no good Js, merely that (obviously!) a) they are not good enough, and/or b) there are not enough good ones, since (proof!) c) the Z-crimes continue.

Q: What - if anything - is wrong with the above logic?
