EASTER SURPRISE:

Attack on Iran, New 9/11… or Worse?

 

03/29/07 "ICH " -- -- The Bush administration continues moving closer to a nuclear attack on Iran, and we ignore the obvious buildup at our peril.  

 

     Russian media is sounding alarms… Then last week, the Russian News and Information Agency Novosti (RIA-Novosti) quoted military experts predicting the US will attack Iran on April 6th, Good Friday (4AM). According to RIA-Novosti, the imminent assault will target Iranian air and naval defense capabilities, armed forces headquarters as well as key economic assets and administration headquarters. Massive air strikes will be deployed, possibly tactical nuclear weapons as well, and the Bush administration will attempt to exploit the resulting chaos and political unrest by installing a pro-US government.

 

     Sound familiar? It's Iraq Déjà vu all over again, and we know how well that war has gone…

    


Both the U.S. House and Senate have now passed  $100+ billion supplemental war funding bills and removed language from the bills that would have demanded that Bush come to Congress before launching an attack on Iran.  Instead of cutting off the war funds and bringing the troops home now, a distant Aug. 2008 date for removal of some troops from Iraq was included. Malu `Aina's position is "Not one more death, not one more dollar!"


 What consequences would arise from a US attack on Iran? Retaliation, for one…(possibly) blocking the Strait of Hormuz … shooting the price of crude oil to over $100 a barrel, with untold negative consequences for the world economy…

 

     The most horrific impact of a US assault on Iran, of course, would be the potentially catastrophic number of casualties… If the US uses nuclear weapons, such as earth-penetrating "bunker buster" bombs, radioactive fallout would become even more disastrous…

 

     Former CIA Officer Philip Giraldi chillingly noted that the Pentagon's plans to attack Iran were drawn up "to be employed in response to another 9/11-type terrorist attack on the United States…"  The Pentagon's plan would be in response to a terrorist attack on the US, but not contingent upon Iran actually having been responsible…

 

     While even contemplating another 9/11 brings shudders, it's worth noting that last year, Congress quietly approved provisions making it easier for the President to declare federal martial law after a domestic terrorist incident...

 

     The clock is ticking, and there's far too much at stake…  We could be looking at WWIII. The time for positive action is now.  ©Heather Wokusch 2002-2006 - http://www.heatherwokusch.com/
