Plausible Pretext for War on Iran in 2013?

Spotted today on Washingtonsblog March 16, 2013: 'BEWARE AN ISRAEL ASSASSINATION ON PRESIDENT OBAMA that is blamed on Iran as a new “reason” for war'
'President Obama travels to Israel as a convenient assassination target to ignite a US-desired war on Iran. Here are the objective facts:
1. President Obama lied to Israeli media a week before his visit, “We think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually develop a nuclear weapon.” This claim is a lie because it opposes all 16 US intelligence agencies’ most current official National Intelligence Estimate (NIE – these are updated when intelligence suggests status change), all IAEA official reports from their full-time monitoring of all Iran’s nuclear material and plants, and several definitive official US reports, all while Mr. Obama provides zero evidence to support his claim. This follows a long history of such lies. When a person makes a claim in defiance of all known objective evidence, and without any evidence of his own, any rational person conservatively concludes the claim is a known lie.
2. US “leadership” in government and corporate media continuously lie with the claim Iran’s president threatened to “wipe Israel off the map.” This claim is easily proved as a criminal lie by simply reading the October 2005 speech in question. The speech’s text is crystal clear in context and content: if Israel continues to suppress Palestinian rights, Israel’s government will go down the path of Iran under the Shah, the USSR, and Iraq under Saddam. In the eight years since this speech, I have never found even one publication that walks readers through this speech to support a threat to Israel. Take five minutes to read the speech for yourself and verify the truth.
3. The US overthrew Iran’s democracy from 1953 to 1979, and then used Iraq to attack, invade, and attempt to conquer Iran from 1980 to 1988. The US is responsible for the deaths of ~one million Iranians from these unlawful Wars of Aggression. To appreciate the evil of US policy on Iran to control their nation through dictatorship and vicious secret police, consider this analogy if the US were such a victim (one of my personal favorites), and this analogy to consider oil a criminal gang business.
The above documentation explains and proves all “reasons” for war on Iran are known to be lies as they are told.
Therefore: BEWARE AN ISRAEL ASSASSINATION ON PRESIDENT OBAMA that is blamed on Iran as a new “reason” for war. Reject US/Israel war-murders of Iranians when we already know who has lied, and who is currently lying for unlawful wars. Suspect a false flag attack as behind any assassination or attempt.' --- Washingtonsblog, March 16, 2013
Zahir's Take: Could be hypothetical scenario analysis from an hyperactive imagination weaned on one too many James Bamford novels and Holywoodism. However, for some context for its plausibility, and indeed inevitability if the status quo of war on terror continues on its pre-planned trajectory, see Zbigniew Brzezinski’s testimony before the US Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee, Feb. 1, 2007 where, the author of The Grand Chessboard and the architect of “giving to the USSR its Vietnam War” in Afghanistan, brazenly stated in front of the CSPAN cameras (download original from
Panel II
Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski
Counselor and Trustee,
Center for Strategic and International Studies/ Former National Security Advisor
Washington, DC
'SFRC Testimony -- Zbigniew Brzezinski
February 1, 2007
Mr. Chairman:
Your hearings come at a critical juncture in the U.S. war of choice in Iraq, and I commend you and Senator Lugar for scheduling them. It is time for the White House to come to terms with two central realities:
1. The war in Iraq is a historic, strategic, and moral calamity. Undertaken under false assumptions, it is undermining America’s global legitimacy. Its collateral civilian casualties as well as some abuses are tarnishing America’s moral credentials. Driven by Manichean impulses and imperial hubris, it is intensifying regional instability.
2. Only a political strategy that is historically relevant rather than reminiscent of colonial tutelage can provide the needed framework for a tolerable resolution of both the war in Iraq and the intensifying regional tensions.
If the United States continues to be bogged down in a protracted bloody involvement in Iraq, the final destination on this downhill track is likely to be a head-on conflict with Iran and with much of the world of Islam at large. A plausible scenario for a military collision with Iran involves Iraqi failure to meet the benchmarks; followed by accusations of Iranian responsibility for the failure; then by some provocation in Iraq or a terrorist act in the U.S. blamed on Iran; culminating in a “defensive” U.S. military action against Iran that plunges a lonely America into a spreading and deepening quagmire eventually ranging across Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.
A mythical historical narrative to justify the case for such a protracted and potentially expanding war is already being articulated. Initially justified by false claims about WMD’s in Iraq, the war is now being redefined as the “decisive ideological struggle” of our time, reminiscent of the earlier collisions with Nazism and Stalinism. In that context, Islamist extremism and al Qaeda are presented as the equivalents of the threat posed by Nazi Germany and then Soviet Russia, and 9/11 as the equivalent of the Pearl Harbor attack which precipitated America’s involvement in World War II.
This simplistic and demagogic narrative overlooks the fact that Nazism was based on the military power of the industrially most advanced European state; and that Stalinism was able to mobilize not only the resources of the victorious and militarily powerful Soviet Union but also had worldwide appeal through its Marxist doctrine. In contrast, most Muslims are not embracing Islamic fundamentalism; al Qaeda is an isolated fundamentalist Islamist aberration; most Iraqis are engaged in strife because the American occupation of Iraq destroyed the Iraqi state; while Iran—though gaining in regional influence—is itself politically divided, economically and militarily weak. To argue that America is already at war in the region with a wider Islamic threat, of which Iran is the epicenter, is to promote a self-fulfilling prophecy.' --- Zbigniew Brzezinski, February 1, 2007
The ever diabolical Dr. Strangelove of course neglected to mention that “al Qaeda” is just another cultivated division of the United States Military, like Blackwater (renamed to Xe), in order to sustain America's counter-insurgency operations worldwide for the same purposes that he outlined in his testimony. See Insurgency vs. Counter-Insurgency to comprehend that Machiavellian modus operandi being openly deployed in public before a selfish nation of idle spectators and co-opted narrators. And for perceptively comprehending the power of selective story-telling for perception management, in conjunction with the power of “mythical historical narrative to justify the case for such a protracted and potentially expanding war” in order to “promote a self-fulfilling prophecy”, see Architecture of Modern Propaganda for Psychological Warfare.
What is the solution for all this dysfunction – what if the plausible Hollywoodish scenario laid out by either the Washingtonsblog now in 2013, or Zbigniew Brzezinski in 2007, come true?
What is the American public, or the Western public, and their valiant stewards courageously running internet jihad 24x7, gonna do?
The courage of America – and the Western peoples – yes, I have now witnessed it over the past twelve years. I now know all about their famous dissent; they will be doing exactly the same as what they have most cleverly been consigned to be doing over the past twelve years, since 9/11:
We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.” — Senior Bush Advisor, The New York Times, October 17, 2004
The effective antidote to this dystopia of one world government now under construction behind the facade of 'war on terror' and other fabricated crises, is not going to emerge from the plebeians in the United States of America.
The peoples of Iran, Pakistan, and those living in the rest of the “global zone of percolating violence” must come to terms with this fact – that no one from the West is capable of helping us – even when a handful among them ideally wish to come to our aid in the safety of their pens and voices. That, in fact, no one from among our own officialdoms will help us. That, the peoples in Pakistan, Iran, and elsewhere have to help ourselves.
Today, just co-incidentally, just before I came across the Wasgingtonsblog's Hollywoodish scenario of how reality is actually fabricated in the world today for the prisoners of the cave, I was reading the American Declaration of Independence. Those nearly three centuries old momentous words once again just jumped out at me shouting – hey, here I am, I am the only practical solution that men and women of honor can wield with effective results:
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. — The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.” --- United States Declaration of Independence from the tyranny of empire
Those lovely words are the only effective way forward for the plebeians in the East – just as they once were for the elites who formed the United States of America. The American plebeians neither ever understood those words, nor acted upon them with any vigilance to defend and safeguard their own nation. Had it not been for their valiant elites leading the charge of severance from tyranny coming from overseas, which today with considerable hindsight some might dare to argue to inflict their own (see Cracks in the Constitution by Ferdinand Lundberg), this short lived experiment of a nation in the long history of civilizations would not have transpired at all.
