‘Engineering War On Iran: All Options On Table?’ – OpEd


By ­Adrian Salbuchi

Question: How do you convince the world that – even though you’re armed to the teeth and have a bad track record of invading countries – you really have “no choice” but make a “pre-emptive military strike” against another country you don’t like?

This must be the question over which the political, military and psychological warfare planners are wracking their brains in the key global power elite decision-making centres in New York, London, Tel-Aviv and Washington….

No, I’m not referring to the State Department, Pentagon, White House, Congress and their counterparts in Britain and Europe. Those folks just take their orders and execute them.

I’m referring to the real decision-makers at Bilderberg, Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations and AIPAC (American Israeli Public Affairs Committee) meetings.

And if the governments don’t come to any solution well then, as Baby Bush used to say, “All options are on the table”.

At least that’s what militant pro-Israeli Zionist Andrew B. Adler – owner and publisher of the “Atlanta Jewish Times” – recommends in an article published on page 3 of his newspaper on January 13.Adler wants Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu to act now against Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas, either severally or jointly; and to:

1. “Order a pre-emptive strike against Hezbollah and Hamas.”

2. “…Order the destruction of Iran’s nuclear facilities at all costs”

3. “Give the go-ahead for US-based Mossad agents to take out a President deemed unfriendly in order for the current Vice-President to take his place, and forcefully dictate that the United States’ policy includes its helping the Jewish state obliterate its enemies”

The above is a verbatim quote from Mr Adler’s article, “What would you do?” And to make sure we all get the message, Mr Adler went on to add, “Yes, you read (option) 3 correctly.Order a hit on a President in order to preserve Israel’s existence.Think about it.If I have thought of this…scenario, don’t you think that this almost unfathomable idea has been discussed in Israel’s most inner circles?”

So, now we have militant Zionists in the US suggesting that Israel’s spy agency Mossad should assassinate President Barack Obama so that Joe Biden can take his place; the very same “much more trustworthy” Biden who on 7th April 2007 said on Israel’s Shalom TV “You don’t have to be Jewish to be a Zionist.I’m a Zionist!”

Now imagine what would happen if the boys at Mossad, helped by the boys at the CIA and MI6, were to follow Andy Adler’s recommendations and really pull that awful dirty trick, and then engineer mass media PsyWar hysteria producing “evidence” that puts the blame on Iran for such a crime?Or on Syria?Or Hamas?Or Hezbollah??

A Sitting Duck…

Meanwhile, on the military front it appears the US calmed “Wildcard Israel” down somewhat by promising joint military exercises, now pushed back to October.

Anyway, Israel is not happy with US foot-dragging on Iran.Even though the US sent 15000 troops to Kuwait; hi-tech military gear to the United Arab Emirates; reinforced the Fifth Fleet in Bahrain; dispatched aircraft carriers “USS Lincoln”, “USS Stennis”, “USS Vinson”, nuke subs and the helicopter carrier “USS Ponce” for immediate Persian Gulf duty. Plus: drones, bunker buster bombs, missiles, warships, fighters, bombers… That’s a lot of hi-tech military hardware in that region to “defend Israel”!

Strangely, however, one piece of equipment seems out of place: the “USS Enterprise”, America’s oldest (half-century) nuclear aircraft carrier: a rather obsolete, slow, clumsy old tub; a veritable museum piece, so old it’s due for decommissioning and break-up next year.What’s the “USS Enterprise” doing in the Persian Gulf??

Perhaps, inspired by Mr Adler’s “Option 3” – “let’s assassinate the president and blame it on Iran” – someone’s also planning to stage an attack on the Enterprise and blame it on Iran?A Casus Belli, indeed!!

For those of us who have so many, many questions about such seemingly False Flag attacks as September 11, 2001, it would be “déjà vu all over again.”

Remember: analogous to the “Enterprise”, the World Trade Centre was old, expensive to maintain, and due to have its tons and tons of now banned cancerous asbestos linings (installed in the 60’s) torn out and replaced at a cost of over one billion Dollars.I doubt Larry Silverstein, who acquired the WTC only six weeks earlier, took that too lightly.

Anyway, since 9/11 Larry walks the streets of Manhattan with a big smile on his face after a New York Court awarded him the right to collect indemnity from his insurers for two claims instead of just one (cashing 7 billion dollars instead of 3.5 billion dollars…!)

Coming back to Iran: in the ensuing scandal generated by his article, Mr Adler apologized for his excessively candid Chutzpah, and resigned as publisher of the “Atlanta Jewish Times”.He still owns it, however…

Anyway, let’s wait and see what the next move on this Grand Chessboard will be.

By the way, I’m still wondering who shot JFK…

    Israel, not United States, is Iran’s enemy. An Iran with nuclear weapons will disrupt Israel’s cruel and outrageously exercised Mideast hegemony. All our Mideast wars have been against our interests, yet successfully advocated by the Jewish state. Again against our interests, Israel has involved us in increasingly overt operations against Iran. Spies and American military drones in Iranian airspace are the most recent revelations. Since before 9/11, American soldiers have been dying for the Jewish state. We are at war. Who did this to us? Israel, AIPAC, the One Percent and other organized and monied Israel Firsters have corrupted our politicians and entire electoral system. Justice and the future of America demand that they be prosecuted and jailed.
