War on Iran: Unleashing Armageddon in the Middle East

The American “power elite” had drawn a “Grand Plan” to control and to monopolize global oil and nuclear energy resources to assure American global hegemony. The collapse of the Soviet Union had created a power vacuum the American administration is trying to fill up.

The attacks of 911 were necessary requirement for the Bush administration to wage a “global war against terror” that would serve as a cover up for American hegemonic actions. President Bush had borrowed Mussolini’s fascist motto of “If you are not with me, you are against me”, and turned it into “You are either with us or with the terrorist” to terrorize weaker nations into accepting American expansions.

The part of the “Grand Plan” that deals with the Middle East and South East Asia was handed down to Bush/Cheney administration for execution. The invasions and destructions of Afghanistan and Iraq are just the beginning. Iran, Syria and Lebanon are next.

Controlling Iran is very important for the American administration. Iran sits on a lake of oil and has large deposits of uranium, that when mined and refined could make Iran a super global power. Controlling Iran leads to the containment of China (America’s greatest competitor), who depends heavily on Iranian oil to satisfy its growing hunger for energy. Geographically Iran makes the shortest and the most economical route for Kazakhstan’s oil pipeline from the Caspian Sea north to the Persian Gulf south with all the oil-tankers traffic. Iran also fits perfectly within the line of American hegemony in South East Asia starting from Afghanistan east extending to Iraq west. Listening to Bush’s speeches –especially his speech to the UN last September 2006- one can detect his “enthusiasm” for “spreading democracy and freedom” in the “despotic Middle East” with Iraq as an example.

Bush/Cheney administration started its overt aggression against Iran immediately after 911. Iran was labeled as one of the “axis of evil” sponsoring terrorist groups – Hezbollah and Hamas. It is accused of meddling into Iraq and instigating civil war by supporting Shiites against Sunnis, and of opening its borders for terrorists to enter Iraq. Iran is also accused of building a nuclear bomb to wipe Israel off the map. Condoleezza Rice, the Secretary of State, described Iran as “central bank for world terrorism” threatening the stability in the region.

The American media joined the administration into demonizing Iranian leaders describing them as extremist fundamental theocracy seeking to revive the glory of ancient Persian Empire by establishing a nuclear Islamic “Caliphate”. Ahmadinejad is portrayed as an irrational, violent, mad Hitler-like anti-Semite, who hates Jews, denies the Holocaust and wants to wipe Israel off the map.

The American administration refused to consider all Iranian attempts for dialogue and cooperation. According to Washington Post June 18th 2006 Richard Hass, head of policy planning at the State Department in 2003, stated that at the wake of American invasion of Iraq Iranian leaders offered the Americans a proposal for a broad dialogue that included full cooperation on war against terror, nuclear program, accepting Israel and halting support to Hamas. The administration already had plans for regime change in Iran that started immediately after the invasion of Iraq. Spy stations were erected at the Iraqi/Iranian borders. Congress had authorized the expenditure of $75 million to support Iranian opposition. Scott Ritter, former UN weapons inspector, reported in June 2005 and in his book “Target Iran” that the US has been using terrorist organizations (Mujahedeen el-Khalq) under the supervision of the CIA to conduct covert terrorist operation in Iran. This terrorist group is operating out of Camp Habib in Basra and launches their terrorist raids against the southern region of Iran.

Israel , on the other hand, refuses to “live under the threat” of nuclear Iran. Israeli politicians point to Ahmadinejad’s alleged threat to wipe Israel off the map as a threat to their own existence, and a possible justification for a pre-emptive strike as a measure of self-defense. They continually threaten to strike Iran’s nuclear facilities the same way they did to Iraq’s nuclear reactors. Israel had sent its military operatives into the Kurdish region north of Iraq to establish training camps for the Kurds. The Kurds want to establish their independent Kurdistan extending from north Iran to east Turkey. Encouraged, financed, and armed by Israel the Kurds send their militants to conduct military operations into northern Iran.

The US is adamant on invading Iran. Invasion plan was originally to take place last April 2006, and consisted of 5 days of continuous aerial bombardment by joint air planes of Israel, UK, and US that might include tactical nuclear bunker buster bombs. Land invasion was to follow from west (Iraq), from east (Afghanistan), and from sea (Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman).
