Tehran has Washington by the cojones

Iran believes the U.S. and Britain are mired in Iraq and cannot spare the military muscle to pick a fight.

* * *
The Security Council cannot deal with Iran like Iraq, ruined by war and obliged to give UN inspectors unfettered access.

* * *
"As President George Bush might privately put it, Tehran has Washington by the cojones," wrote Oxford University professor Timothy Garton Ash.

Iran not only has a formidable military, but it has strong economic ties with Russia and China, both of whom wield vetoes on the Security Council.

The US and Britain bulldozed their way into Iraq, but how will they handle Iran?
On Monday, senior officials from Britain, the U.S., Russia and China will meet in London to try and agree on how to proceed.

* * *
[The] United States repeatedly has told Tehran that developing nuclear weapons capability is unacceptable.

* * *
[But,] experts [estimate] Iran is at least five years away from being able to produce a nuclear bomb.

Five years away. So what's the unstated urgency, could it be Iran's oil bourse that's slated to open in March?

[Jack Straw] insisted the dispute with Iran "can only be resolved by peaceful means."

* * *
[But,] US officials . . . won't rule out a unilateral military strike.

* * *
German deputy Foreign Minister Gernot Erler said imposing economic sanctions against Iran for its nuclear policy would be a "very dangerous path" and could "lead to an escalation that can get out of control."
Will cooler heads prevail? Your guess is as good as mine. But, don't hold your breath.
Hans Blix, who led the pre-war UN inspection team in Iraq, accuses Europe and the U.S. of not giving Iran enough economic and political incentives to make a deal.

At one point, Iran seemed ready to do so...

The deal tabled included allowing Iran to buy a light-water reactor and ending trade restrictions on spare parts, which helps explain the tendency of Iranian planes to fall out of the sky.

Iran then balked at an offer to have Russia supply enriched uranium, saying Moscow's recent gas dispute with Ukraine shows how easy it is for a supplier to turn off the tap.
He raises a very good point. We all know what happens when those who supply that which we need to survive decide to turn off the tap.
[W]hen credit is created out of "thin air" and returned on the maturity day to the bank this amounts to a withdrawal of money from the economy, i.e, [a] decline in the money stock . . . because there wasn't any original saver/lender, since this credit was created out of "thin air."

It follows then that the sole cause behind the wide swings in the stock of money [i.e., economic booms and depressions] is the existence of fractional reserve banking, which gives rise to unbacked-by-savings credit. (Mises thinks INTEREST is okay. Minor dispute. We know better.)
Ahmedinjad is no fool. MONEY and ENERGY make the world go 'round. What would you do for your people, if you were him?

When peak oil comes around, Iran will need an alternate source of energy. Who would you allow to control your country's destiny?

Both the US and Britain have bankrupted themselves by engaging in an illegal the war on Iraq and Afghanistan. Most Americans and Brits have no idea of the fact that they are facing a truly grim future. The Iran bourse will finish off the fiat petrodollar as it should. Collapse of the US will follow. That's what happens when they let an itellectually challenged psycho war criminal rule over them.

Allan says: You abouve are all correct. But I want to add several points:

You know the origin of the game "Chess." It's that the Rulers - whether in the days of Alexander, or old Julius or Charlemagne, or the Middle East, the Rulers and Religions trained the "peasants" to follow orders, and fight and die for them, thus the pawns (foot soldiers) and knights (trained killers-mercenaries(, etc. That is what our own kids-foot soldiers are mindlessessly doing, from the 1st. hours in boot camp- they're mind conditioned (what do you call arriving at camp and being forced to sit up in the hall ways for 18 hrs w/o sleep? SOftening up. Children drilling hours on end- all the while being insulted? Being conditioned!

BUt the end of the U.S. as we know it is here. There's no money - and production and services are sent "offshore", a word to try to fool us, instead of corps. greedily making money in other countries - 'cause it certainly isn't raising the salary/living standards of people there. Perhaps that is the real reason Roman fell -not only was it stretched thin, and no longer homogenous, but it imported ********** from outside.

But as to the subject, this time we're bitting off more than we can chew. We think we're playing games, as toughies, but this time:

1-We're stretched thin and jaded, no equipment- food-armor, bullets, even the boots are falling apart, our kid soldiers are sick.
2- Four years of a futile war behind us, we're losing, if not lost the war, hence coffins in the dead of night. ANd wounded and dying hidden in Germany.
3- Iraq had 24 million poeople- Iran has 80 million
4- Iran terrain is very different - it's mountainous, and forested.
5-Iran troops are fresh, and have been prepared for 4 years for mobilization.
6-Did I mention this time Russia and China are involved - although wahat game they're playing (?) I don't know - since they're doing business with the U.S. and Israel also. There's puppets behind puppets behind puppets here.
7- Those people haven't been worn out with 10 years of sanctions- they're very healthy and vigorous -
THE PERSIANS HAVEN'T BEEN CONQUERED - for centuries- and are warrior blood.

8-The Iraqis were passive in allowing the U.S.-ALlied Coalitn in - thinking they were the "good"guys" - NOW is you think there's "purdah" and veils in Iraqn - think again - this time those people have had a chance to observe and learn.

They're NOT going to stand passive this time. The women - whether in the military or lnot - are going to fight tooth and claw. There's nothing more dangerous than a mother fight for her child.

so in defending their country - this time the U.S. will be dealing with both genders, looking at the experience of the Iraqi.

If we pick on the Iranians - it'll be very heated.

If I were the president of Iran I would have no other recourse than to build an atomic bomb and a nasty one. Bush and his handlers are crazy men and only respect raw power. telling them to go ahead and inspect your facilities would be like inviting them to bomb your infrastructure and invade.This happened in Iraq, whose only sin was that they had no weapons of mass destruction.An example to Iran is N Korea a country Bush is afraid of and which he left in peace.

Point 1: iran for all its short comings, has the need to survive on their side. russia is not a factor really, more like the russians are using iran for a live demo of their weapons systems i.e. all the hype on the SAM purchases. America showed the world its capabilities or lack there of under the command of "business men" not patriots or statesmen.
Point 2: Americas course has been coopted and its people dumbed down, left holding the bag on the world stage after these, selected reps. run crazy. no one will come to the aid of the "American" after the show put on in our name. The truth is unlike the iraqies americans arent equipped or trained to repell oppression when it comes.

Democracy is what you have when the "government" fears the people; Tyranny is what we have now that the people fear the "government" and its loyalties to corporations and other countries

Americans and the worlds people need to awaken to the grand scheme being played out. Talk to a neighbor, a stranger, some one different from you, stay human as to not fall prey to this plan.

America is doomed.
It is a country run by fascists more intent on controlling the world (with it's axis of evil partners, Israel and the UK) than it is "spreading democracy" the cover story for any invasion it has undertaken in the last twenty years.
The dollar is set to fall in March of this year, probably when Iran sets up it's oil bourse and won't have the resource to pay all the countries of the world who have dollars in reserve. When it attacks Iran in late spring or early summer, it will be the start of WWIII, with the US on the side of evil for this time. All evidence points to Iran developing nuclear power, yet the Bush administration is dead set on attacking them any way. There is no way they can win, and the diversion of military resources to Iran will only allow Iraq to fall into the hands of the insurgents, who will probably hand the US another defeat along the lines of VietNam.
The American people will likely be brainwashed again by a masive media propaganda program that will keep them pacified until more loved ones come home in body bags, Bush will probably declare martial law and we will be stuck in a dictatorship. Democracy is dead here, money rules everything.

Yes I agree. This to me has nothing to do with Iran developing a nuclear program. This to me is more about the Iranian oil bourse. Just like Saddam changing his petrodollars in 2000. This could get very heated as according to geopolitical analyst Tim Rifat, Iran already has at least 6 nuclear missles. He also predicts that if either the US or Isreal strikes any of its' nuclear plants that Iran will retaliate by taking out Isreals Dimona plant however not neceserially with a nuke.

the yank regime seeks perpetual war. This would allow them to introduce conscription (perhaps even globaly from its coalition partner cronies and stooges)/martial law etc. Its not about winning or losing, but endless, perpetual war. They will keep feeding the worlds kids into the meat grinder endlessly. I recomend re reading 1984, as this predicts what is about to happen fairly accurately.

Dont look for logic, as this is sheer insanity on a global scale. The Robber barons feeding off the corpses of its own poor, to prop up the families of the rich. This is ALL about the confiscation of your wealth. Its about the rich taking the last of your crumbs to store in their personal treasure houses.

Does the U$ citizenry understand that it does not matter who gets elected, and it never has. What do all of these dems or republicans have in common? They are all stinking rich. They take their turns pilliaging the planet, and care not a jot about the plebs, that they never see or have contact with (they are quarintined from the worlds poor). It has always been this way. Wether its the Kerrys, the Bu$hes, or the the kennedys, its all the same. We are grist to their satanic mill.

The western economies are about to collapse. Our standard of living is quickly declining. We are about to engage in inter continental war, and every one will be affected. As many people will die from starvation at home, as from the warfare itself. They want you poor so that they can conscript you, and you will go with pleasure- to feed your family.

I agree with most everthing posted above. What I wonder is, what should we do about it, as Americans, (to those who that category applies to)? Those who are not Americans should think about this as well. I don't have any naive ideas that a march on Washington or a letter wrtting campaign will have any effect on the course of future events; what I mean is what can we do as individuals and communities to prepare?
It seems that the Iranian oil bourse, Chinese diversification away from dollars, or war with Iran or Syria all have the potential to derail the American economy and hence the world economy in a signifigant way. Personally, I have a degree in International Relations from a very good University, but since I'm reluctant to join the ranks of war planners and world destroyers, I live on a limited income, working for a non-profit organization.
I bring this up because I wonder, what should ordinary Americans like me, without great resources or connections, do to prepare for the seemingly inevitable collapse and resulting war?
Very short term, the answer seems to be; store up enough neccessities to survive any calamities. Longer term, it seems like we need to build community level organizations for group solidarity, support, defense and action in case things get hairy.
Aside from IR, I'm also a student of religion, and I realise that doomsday predictions are about as common as the birth of a sucker. Nevertheless, calamitous events do occur in all kinds of societies that would have laughed off such predictions a year before. I hope I'm just an ignoramus, but it seems to me like we need to get past the point of snarkily proclaiming troubles ahead and to begin actually planning for them.

The U.S will wipe Iran from the map.

Partly because Israel wants it that way and mostly because the REAL rulers of the world based in the U.K and Europe want their markets opened up and the people "Liberalized" so they can become autobot consumers of material widgets.

It's all fun and games played by the Elite.

Russia, China etc...will do what the fuck they are told. They are owned and operated by the Central Banking Houses just like the U.S is.

Talk of a spreading war between great powers is simple "scary" talk to keep peasants of ALL races petrified and looking to the state to protect them. Iranians need not fear asteroid collisions, supervolcanoes, peak oil and global warming but they might want to look out for nuclear "bunker busters" and the all powerful U.S airforce who are about to turn Iran into a car park suitable for a few Walmarts.

The fix is in. Iran was encouraged by Russia and China and now they have withdrawn support. The Arabs and the Persians are SUCH suckers!

I don't know what to say. So many excellent comments, so many good questions.

But, my wrist hurts (carpel tunnel, I think). So, I'll be brief.

Nations do not win wars. Those that finance them do.

God only knows what's ahead. But, I agree that after covering the basics - food, water, fuel and shelter - hard WORKING Americans who believe in life, love, and liberty must do everything in their power to network, pass on the truth, and build the community ties that we'll need to carry us through the coming crisis.

Don't lose faith. Trust in God.

The blame game is going to get very heated soon. But, don't judge a book by its cover. Actions speak louder than words and correlation is NOT causation. Mankind is one. There are those who don't care about anyone but themselves. Judge them for their CONDUCT, and nothing else, lest someone judge you by what someone else has done. In the end you must follow your heart.

Hopefully, we are not witnessing the end of times.

Regardless, if we ever hope to secure our freedom for ourselves and posterity we MUST secure our money supply from the grips of those who would use it time and again to subjugate us and our children.

Many thanks to all who visit and contribute.

For the peson that says peak oil is fake I have news. My local electric co. has informed us that we should conserve as much energy as possible. yesterday 2,300 residents in nanakuli lost power (reasons unknown). here in hawaii we are having roving blackouts . yesterday in wahiawa none of the traffic lights worked, thank God here hawaii we have aloha and island love ,so it wasnt one big gaggle f%^$&. we would let each other proceed wherever and so on. the point i;m making is peak oil is very much real and here. our governor has acknowleged it. for people who want to confirm this go to www.honoluluadvertiser.com and do a search.

In addition, when you must buy, use only cash. Trash all your credit cards, and try to create your own credit system between yourself and your vendors/service providers/clients.

And of course, spread the word far and wide. People must learn the truth about how we are being subjugated through our monetary system.

When the truth reaches critical mass, government officials will be forced to fix our monetary system.

RE peak oil, the best evidence that I've read convinces me that peak oil is a scam. The pipelines are full, the storage areas are full, and Saudi Arabia recently announced they had twice as many reserves as they thought. Russia has and is developing the Caspian area for oil, and these wells are deep. They have gone from being an oil importer to one of the largest exporters in the last decade. They are now supplying all of Europe with natural gas. Same goes for VietNam, and soon India. Google abiotic oil and learn a bit.

Who cares if the Governor of Hawaii tells you we have hit peak oil? Hawaii imports every drop of its oil, as far as I know. Believe the Governor? Believe the Oil Corporations? Believe their shill "scientists"? Or do some learning for yourself?

RE Survival: Yes, it will take communities pulling together to survive. But we don't have communities today, we have TV addicted consumers who couldn't feed, clothe, or shelter themselves before most of them starved or killed each other off robbing each other. Now would be a good time to look around your area and see what the chances are for survival for you and your family. Don't look at nuclear war, just look at an economic collapse or the oil refineries no longer sending out gas and diesel. That would take care of it in about three days. The whole world would look like NOLA after Katrina very quickly.

Here are a few suggestions: Put aside some non-perishable food. Think smart. What do you eat? What would you crave most if you were starving? High-protein high fat foods are best, canned corn beef, sardines, canned salmon, beef jerky, maybe coconut oil or ghee (clarified butter in jars). Vegetable oil if you can't finda anything else. For bread, buy akmak or rusk or ry krisp and store it in cookie tins, not plastic. You can get the tins for a song at thrift stores. Coffee, tea, sugar, salt, tobacco.
Matches in a tin container too. Forget plastic for storing food long term, for too many reasons to list here.

How would you cook or keep warm? You can make a stove out of a tin can that will boil water in a few minutes with a few pieces of newspaper or some twigs for fuel. Look it up.

Warm clothes, blankets, a space blanket, batteries and a flashlight. A small backpack. Some thin rope. Bandaids and Ibupofen. And a srong knife, it doesn't need to be large.

And don't forget water, depending on where you live. Fill an old plastic milk jug or two with water and keep it in your car or closet. In an pinch, punch holes in the bottom of a tin can, line it with a layer of cloth, and put in about an inch or so of dirt from an uncontaminated area. This will filter out most disease organism and also radioactivity, believe it or not. It might be a litle muddy, but it won't likely make you ill like drinking out of a contaminated pond would.

BTW, vegetarians will either convert back to non-vegetarians or die in a few weeks, anywhere much North or South of 30* Latitude. Fun game for city folks who can go to the store, but not survival.

Seeds and some dry fertilizer, both stored in separate tin cans if possible. Buy at least a few packets of seeds of things you will eat and that haave food value. Onions, cabbage, turnips, rutabaga, carrots. These are just in case you live long enough to learn how to plant them, and then long enough to grow them out.

I very much realize that many reading this don't have a lot of money, and I'm not talking about ordering hundreds of dollars worth of freeze-dried food. Buy a few cans of chili or hash or sardines, but have something. Food is #1 (along with water), then clothing and matches, then some sort of shelter, even a heavy piece of plastic. Food, warmth, shelter.

Go to the coin store and buy a few ounces of silver. The more you can afford, the better. They will cost about $10 each right now. (Jan. 06).

If we get a total economic collapse or war, those who want to survive and have done at least a tiny amount of preparation could survive. Many won't if things get grim.

Some of those people at the Superdome in NOLA were hit with immediate catastrophe as their houses washed away. I'd bet most of them, though, simply had no alternative because they had no food, clean water, or survival skills. You can see how well they did waiting around for the government to save them. If your preparation, skills, and knowledge leave you below survival level, you probably won't.

The most primitive barbarians know how to obtain food, warmth, and shelter. Which leaves most of Western Civilization well below the level of the most primitive barbarians.

You can do it if you want to. No one will be there to do it for you. And if nothing happens, hopefully you will have put aside some food you like, and silver ounces are pretty. :)

When i meant peak oil in reference to curbing hawaii's use of foreign oil. Peak oil has been widely documented. There will always be oil in the ground, but the quality is getting more expensive and less usable. Lets use some common sense ...do you really believe we can go on like this forever. "man will likely most survive upon this earth, but the subspecies oil will certainely not". Do some research and do you believe that suadi arabia is telling the truth ( dont believe everything you hear). yeah of course they want us to believe they have plenty, but the sad part is there pumping at maximum capacity. And yes I know hawaii imports its oil from the mainlan who gets it from..who??? foreign sources!!!! come on follow me.I JUST WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND,but I hope we can use alternative sources of energy. It will be good.

By the way oil corps. governments, politicians all fix the books and statistics , but peak oil can't be ignored anymore so i don't believe those guys. you say i believe all these people, but they are finally realizing something me and lot of people have known for years.

Re; Peak Oil

I have been following this one a long time. Both sides say science supports their arguement. There are numerous blogs on this subject alone. This is from the Moscow Times..

Transneft: Oil Output Slowing

The country's crude oil output growth will slow significantly in 2005 as companies fail to maintain the hectic growth rates of recent years, crude pipeline monopoly Transneft's head, Semyon Vainshtok, said Tuesday.

"Russian companies have underproduced 14 million tons in January-September compared to what they initially planned," he told reporters during a news conference.


My take is...even if oil is produced abiotically (and I'm still not convinced)....is it being produced as fast as we are taking it out...and if not, what are the consequences? This isn't the place to debate it, but people should look into both sides of the arguement...and THINK!

Speaking of alternative energy, here's a nifty little patent that Tesla took out in the early 1900s for a "cosmic ray" collector, sort of a cosmic solar panel. What's cool about it is that anyone could put it together and test it out in their backyard in a couple of afternoons, with no more knowledge than coulb gained from reading a chapter or two in a basic electricity book, and all you'd need is some aluminum foil, some electrical tape, a couple of sheets of glass, and some copper wire. Looks like a fun one to play with, and I plan to try it out when the sun starts shining again where I live, although he claims the thing works even in the dark. We'll see. It doesn't even have any moving parts.


This address takes you to a site that sells Tesla books and has a picture of the simple device. Better info on it is out there on the web, but when I tried to look it up I lost the entire post I was writing. Guess that's how this particular blog works, or else I don't know what I'm doing.

Read the post again.

The rate of growth will slow, because the pipeline capacity isn't there. Nothing about pumping less oil.

So much anti-semitism. This war is not about Israel, or Jewish people, it is about the all-mighty dollar, plain and simple. The new Iranian Oil Bourse is the cause for the war.

Only retarded nazis think everything is caused by Jewish people.

All Iran has to do is close the Straits of Hormuz. A simple task - sinking a couple of oil tankers would block the narrow part for a long time. The world loses 25% of our oil supply. Bye-bye American Way of Life...

I'm very skeptical regarding abiotic oil. Dr. Thomas Gold has argued for the existence of primordial hydrocarbons on Earth and has claimed that liquid hydrocarbons exist at greath depths. There are some problems with this. Primordial hydrocarbons exist in abundance on the outer planets but there is scarce evidence of any primordial hydrocarbons on the inner planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars). Gold theorizes that these primordial hydrocarbons must have migrated to great depths in the earth's crust. Temperatures below 15,000 feet depth are high enough (above 275ºF) to break hydrocarbon bonds. Oil cannot form there.

As much as I distrust corporations, it doesn't make much sense to perpetrate a peak oil hoax. Oil companies need consumer confidence to maintain high profit margins. Announcing that oil supply can't keep up with demand and that prices will rise because of it blows consumer confidence. People will cut back on their consumption, tighten their belts, and find alternate means to maintain their livelihood.

The greatest disaster that will shortly befall America was the miscalculated blunder of attacking Afghanistan and Iraq. The zionist jews in Israel and the insane Bush administration pushed for these wars for greater Israel and big oil. Israel wants an oil pipeline from Kirkuk to Haifa so it could become the Rotterdam of the M.E.. With the US on the verge of collapse, zionists ambitions will go down the toilet as they should. All we need now is an asteroid to destroy the satanic shitty little state of Israel. Most people have no idea that askanazi jews are mass murderers - to murder without guilt is in their genes. They murdered innocent Slavs by the millions in the former USSR. As Norman Finkelstein observed, they also made billions from the holahoax.

While I will agree that the oil bourse is undoubtedly a factor, to say that Israel plays no role in mideast foreign policy and that to suggest they do is anti-semitism is to be completely out of touch with both the history of the region and with reality. Israel has violated more UN security counsel resolutions than any nation in the middle east (or planet for that matter). They have only gotten away with it because the United states makes it happen....both with arms support and strong arming the UN. Geeez...just take a look at all of the pro-Likud people at the pentagon! Most modern day Israeli's are not even semites but descendants of Kazaars and europeans who converted to Judism. The anti-semite arguement is pure BS. Most orthodox jews denounce the state of Israel and understand the role that zionism has played and still does today.

"The rate of growth will slow, because the pipeline capacity isn't there. Nothing about pumping less oil."

You missed my point of the post....supply is not keeping up with demand. We do not have to run completely out of oil to cause major issues. We only have to produce much less than we need.

this is from an article at counterpunch.org
Supply versus Demand

The demand for energy has been rising by some 2.5 percent a year as industrialization spreads around the world. In 2003, global consumption stood at 77 million barrels of oil a day; by 2010, if these trends continue, it could rise to over 90 million barrels a day, a 17 percent increase.


The article is a good read. It helps to understand why industry analysts and many geologists are very concerned that even if oil is abiotic....it simply can't keep up with growing demand.

Lots of interesting comments, I especially liked what anonymous 3:56 pm had to say. The US is more vunerable than most people think. Remember, a parasite weakens its host, like the Hepatitis C virus. China does not have the Jewish problem, hence their economy is strong. All that ever held them back in the past were the Marxist-Leninist ideas that Russian Jews brought to China some 80 years ago. A war with Persia (Iran) would be no cakewalk for either Israel or the US, for reasons given by anonymous 3:56 pm.

If in march Iran starts to sell oil in EUROS and forces usa/israel heads to spin then poof instant and colossal WAR against WHATEVER the NWO sees fit to feed it's sheep on the matter. Soon the asian creditors are going to forclose on you america get use to it. There is Very little you can do to prevent disaster. The real world is calling for you and they will not be shut out! USA has run out of time! It is no longer a state of values it is a state of WAR. No longer a state of freedom and development it's now a state of darkness and death. What will USA be after 3 more years of this crap.

you would not beleve how many times in the last 4 years i have heard "Those fucking Americans did this" or " Those dam Americans did that"

Do you want to be the 21st century evil empire land

i would not visit your land on fear of your berzerk government and there BIG BROTHER ways.

your government blows up it's own buildings to start wars and what do you do when you find out? nothing yet 2006 5 yrs later and not even a single charge in the biggest crime in history. Not a thing

do you think the rest of the world is going to let this crap continue spread un-checked? how long will it be before some country steps in to stop the bullshit? How will they stop the bullshit is perhaps a better question.

The world is a real nice place WHY do you Americans insist on fucking it up? quit being so flipping mis-trustfull not everyone has it out for you yet. Keep up this WORLD GOVERNMENT garbage and someone will react.

The reactions at this level will prob. be nukes and well if you really look at nukes and who KNOWS them best USA is playing third fiddle in the blast dept. the chinise KNOW nukes much larger than USA does. and the russians are big blast boys. so in a pissing contest you lose on that one. everyone with them has the sub to deploy them. no advantage there either. hmmmm What EXACTLY is going to go down? Well it sure will not be good for the average joe USA after you realize your AMERICAN buck is worthless paper. Iran is NOT the ONLY land willing to trade oil in euros instead of the FED BUCK. Your Leader is willing to use standard nukes on iran to protect the FED RESERVE just watch it happen. your living in a dream world USA and the real world is Pissed off at your lack of control of your goverment. PUSH HAS COME TO SHOVE AND YOU HAVE WAY MORE TO LOSE THAN IRAN.

Iranians see themselves threatened by the U.S., Britain, Israel and Russia. Britain and the Soviets invaded Iran in 1941, a forgotten aggression as criminal as Hitler's invasion of Poland. The U.S. and Britain overthrew Iran's democratic government in 1952, imposing their puppet, Shah Pahlavi. In 1980, the U.S. and Britain engineered Saddam Hussein's invasion of Iran that inflicted nearly 1 million Iranian casualties. Ahmadinejad led volunteers in that war.


btw ... fwiw Iran was reported to have received 3 stolen nukes in the 1991 period (CIA report via Time Magazine back int eh mid 90's) and another 6 to 9 in the 1995-98 period so they may already be a "nuclear power".


Keep in mind that Buehler reported on the phone that these guys have nukes.


keep upwind

Problem is, no matter what, we'll still end up right back where we are. You can't change human nature and humans are naturally greedy.

(A forgotten aggression as criminal as Hitler's invasion of Poland.)

So did the Zionist/Bolshevik controlled Russia, but no-one declared war on them, even though the NKVD rounded all the Polish officers up, took them to Katyn forest and shot them all.

The Bolsheviks were also slaughtering all the Germans in Poland especially at Bromberg on the terrible "bloody Sunday"!

But you won't read any of that in your worthless history books.

Massive Bolshevik military build-ups were taking place way before the Germans saved Europe from the scourge of Bolshevism. This scum wear new robes today, they are known as Capitalists and America is their host. By the time they have finished manipulating/sponging off of America, she will be bent and broken, and beyond repair.

America the mushroom nation, destroyed, sucked dry by Zionists before she even had a chance to reach full maturity.
