Pentagon said drawing up plans for strike on Iranian camp

06-06-2008 17:12

One has to wonder if, now that these Extremists have lost all credibility, and nobody's fallen for their LIES this time around, and everyone's wary of another False Flag Attack, if this isn't their newest ploy to start the war, which is really about Regime Change.

If you think Iran (and by extension, Russia) will take this lying down, you're sadly mistaken. This would still be an illegal Act of War and Naked Aggression.

U.S. intelligence chief in Israel to discuss Iran

05-06-2008 19:05

Just something to keep in mind in the weeks ahead when the Propaganda effort created by this meeting, the AIPAC conference, and Olmert's visit to DC, really gets underway.

Apparently for Israel, any US intelligence report telling the truth is a "blow" when it comes to Iran.

However, the timing couldn't be more interesting, what with Olmert in Washington, pleading for a military strike, and McConnell in Jerusalem getting a "cooked consensus" from Israeli intelligence folks who are foaming at the mouth with their eagerness to get the US to strike Iran militarily.

Italy’s leap into the dark: Smells, signals and symptoms of fascism

05-06-2008 06:33

Corporatism implies the merging of state and business leadership, together with belligerent nationalism and militarism, in effect a dictatorship of the extreme right. In practice corporatism and fascism are one and the same. As in Cold War years, so in the Berlusconi era, the fear of leftist communists and the desire of many Italians to be a normal nation has led to today’s unconscious toleration of the rise of a nascent form of authoritarian government with many characteristics of fascism.

"Hate Iran Week" at AIPAC

04-06-2008 16:02

Sadly, these fanatics don't care if something is true (or has been proven false). All they care is that they are allowed to repeat these LIES in order to create the illusion of a crisis, because it distracts from their actual plot to attack the country, in the process, once again committing "The Supreme International Crime".

It's interesting to watch these criminals as they keep doing, over and over and over, exactly what they call their opposition "antisemitic" for pointing out ...
