UN ups ante, Iran prepares for War

In a move calculated to pave the way for sanctions against Iran . . .
The five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council agreed on a statement Wednesday demanding that Iran suspend uranium enrichment . . .

The 15 members of the council planned to meet later Wednesday to approve the statement, the text of which was not immediately disclosed.

"The council is expressing its clear concern and is saying to Iran that it should comply with the wishes of the governing board," Britain's U.N. Ambassador Emyr Jones-Parry told reporters.

The West believes council action will help isolate Iran and put new pressure on it to clear up suspicions about its intentions. They have proposed an incremental approach, refusing to rule out sanctions.

U.S. officials have said the threat of military action must also remain on the table.

Russia and China, both allies of Iran, oppose sanctions. They want any council statement to make explicit that the IAEA, not the Security Council, must take the lead in confronting Iran.

"As many of our European and Chinese colleagues have stated more than once, any ideas involving the use of force or pressure in resolving the issue are counterproductive and cannot be supported," [Russian Foreign Minister Sergey] Lavrov said.

Iran remains defiant . . . warning that Security Council intervention would "escalate tensions, entailing negative consequences that would be of benefit to no party."
Meanwhile, Iran flexes its military muscle . . .
[Iran announced it will] launch a massive joint naval wargame titled "Holy Prophet (PBUH)", beginning on March 31 with shooting of a Shahab II Missile into the air with the message of "Peace and Friendship" for the regional countries, Persian Gulf, and Sea of Oman littoral states.

The wargame would begin with the password "Muhammad the Messenger of Allah," according to the IRGC Naval Force Commander and last till April 6 in the northern coasts of the Persian Gulf up to 40 kilometers to the south, to Iran's border port city of Chabahar in the region.

Over seventeen thousand of Iran's armed forces and Basij mobilization forces, would take part in the naval wargame in which ,500 large and small naval vessels of various types would participate.

The IRGC official added, "The Command Headquarters of the wargame would be the IRGC Noah Naval Barracks, while five other army, Air Force and navy bases in three provinces would back up the massive operation."

Admiral Saffari announced the entire armed forces' of the country's full readiness to defend the territorial integrity of the motherland.

He added, "The latest local achievements of the country in defense industries, implementation of the experiences of the country's armed forces in planning and launching massive military operations in practice, evaluation of the conduct of our commanders, and providing a real atmosphere for our mobilization forces to display their defense apabilities are among the top objectives of the maneuver." The four-phased naval wargame is meanwhile planned to display the Islamic system's defensive capabilities.

Iranian made drones would be flied to collect information from the virtual enemy's camp, sea-to-air missiles capable of pursuing moving objects, helicopters capable of shooting air-to-sea, and air-to-land missiles, rapid reaction boats, Iranian made intelligent mines with multi-sensors, various naval rocket mine launchers, huge Iranian made naval rockets and up-to-date telecommunication facilities would be among the sea of equipment to be facilitated during the wargame.
Recall that yesterday, Egypt and Sudan essentially backed Iran when they expressed a desire to join the "nuke club." These are very significant developments, albeit not unexpected.

Time is running out. We must act.

.."Time is running out. We must act."" What does that mean?

I'm not sure exactly. But, blogging won't cut it.

At the very least, massive national protests, or a national strike (like what they're doing in France) until Bush is ousted from office, or until Congress commits to avoiding war with Iran.

The only problem is that I suspect a false flag operation is planned to drag us into war with Iran, whether we like it or not.

Without conclusive evidence that people in the government staged 9/11, we won't stand a chance to stop them.

I feel safe now. Let's think about this for a second. The UN passes a
resolution because they want us to feel all warm and toasty inside.
At this point how do we know that the UN isn't a bunch of crazy glue
sniffers?

My name is Andrew Ian Murphy and the simple fact f the matter is, the Americans are underestimating Iran.

Here is a test for those of you with an open mind to your own prejudices...

Do you believe the Iranians are a weaker people because of the color of their skin?

If so, then ask yourself this question; what if insead of Iran, we had the exact same country, but it was populated by GERMANS?

The Iranians are no joke...

America, you are going to lose...and to be frank, it serves you right.

No, the Iranians are no joke. Neither are the Russians and Chinese who back them. This whole thing has gotten out of hand and I'm afraid the war is comming here, it's just a matter of time. It is not possible to fight multiple unending simultaneous wars around the world. The goal of world domination is not attainable nor desirable. As to moving to France, I would if I could.

The disastrous foreign policies of the US have left it more isolated than ever, and China is standing by to take over. "Our power, then, has the grave liability of rendering our theories about the world immune from failure. But by becoming deaf to easily discerned warning signs, we may ignore long-term costs that result from our actions and dismiss reverses that should lead to a re-examination of our goals and means." These are the words of Henry Hyde, chairman of the House international relations committee and a Republican congressman, in a recent speech. -Guardian Unlimited

Henry Hyde - Republican - Chairman of House Committee - and US media ignores the news! If that is not criminal conspiracy, what is.

Empire is unfeasible, and in the mad dash towards empire, you - the American - will pay with money, blood and pride. Time to rethink based on timeless morals and ethics - and leave in a peaceful world. Be tame or be tamed. It is not less macho - more human and even more Christian.

The US, British and French govs are out to provoke a war, a war that is about resource control and deficit spending. We are the ones who are going to have pay for all this with our hard work and our lives. They can be stopped but it means that we have to take to the streets and demand their resignations en masse. They are not acting in our names they are acting out of greed and it can no longer be tolerated.

All I know is I hope, you all have your UV ray sun glasses handy, cause that bright lite in the sky you will be seeing will not be the sun. It will be a mushroom cloud. And as far as the

"I would move to France if I could"

Dont let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

Hey friends,

Just caught this on drudgereport.com.

OSAMA BIN LADEN'S FORMER BODYGUARD CERTAIN HE IS PLANNING A NEW ATTACK AGAINST THE U.S.... DEVELOPING...

Looks like we can expect a false flag any day now. Don't you love getting primed for a lie?

Oh, and the mushroom cloud will explode 1st week of june in Nevada...which is also a primer for when we get to do it to Iran.

Instead of getting too hysterical, I submit we just quietly go and encourage state legislatures to elect their own Senators, to be sent to convene w. other states' senators. Replace the present bunch of imperialist, fascist Judeo-"Sadducean" conspirators (Ck JBS.org) in the present US Senate. Ck more and other Apollonian essays at NewNation.org under "commentary" heading. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Thor
