…. The extraordinary hostility of the GOP hierarchy to Ron Paul and his supporters hardly comes as a shock: Paul is, after all, the single most trenchant critic of our interventionist foreign policy since William Jennings Bryan, and he is the War Party’s deadly enemy. To the servitors of the military-industrial complex, the foreign lobbyists, and would-be Napoleons of the neocon persuasion who hold the reins of power in the GOP, he is the Devil Incarnate. So unwelcome is Paul’s presence that I doubt they’ll even allow him on the convention floor, even given that his more pliable son is one of the speakers. And you can bet Rand Paul’s speech will be vetted under a magnifying glass well in advance: these are people who hate surprises. ….

Orchestrating War on Iran

August 23, 2012

Complete Media silence about Israel’s plans to drag the USA into an unnecessary war on Iran.


AIPAC is pushing us to war with Iran for Israel


Netanyahu inciting against Obama on way to war with Iran

In the run-up to an Iran attack, Netanyahu crossed every boundary, with the help of Jewish-American mogul Sheldon Adelson, to unseat Obama. And Ehud Barak, the boy from the kibbutz, is standing by his side on this balcony of incitement. …


Israel Delivers “Or Else” Demands to Obama

…  The message was a warning that the Strong Man of the Middle East will go to war against Iran before Election Day, November 6, unless Barack Obama meets two Israeli demands. The warning was delivered by the New York Times in a news analysis, “Israeli Leaders Could Be Dissuaded From Striking Iran”, by the Times’ Jerusalem correspondent, Jodi Rudoren.  …

Subject: Please – No War on Iran!

Dear President Obama.                       8/21/2012.

AIPAC and the Israel Lobby has swindled us into an unnecessary war on Iraq. – It now promotes another un-necessary attack on Iran. America will probably be dragged into this conflict by default. – The result may become a major world conflict.

Senators Joseph Lieberman, Lindsey Graham, and Robert Casey introduced a resolution that would move America further down the path toward war with Iran.

Iran is not a threat to any state in the Middle-East. – Rather, Israel is the primary conflict instigator!

Three years ago, General Clark stated that the Pentagon planned attacks on 7 counties in that region. Iran was named as one of those countries. – The Israel Lobby is deeply ensconced in Pentagon strategy planning.

America can not afford such a major conflict in light of its current fiscal problems.

The whole world considers our Middle-East policy as foolish and lacking moral rectitude.

Nothing could be more disastrous for America and nothing could be less necessary than war with Iran. …

Please keep America out of this conflict,

Thanks, A.v.S


Increased Israel chatter on Iran is about sending a message to Washington

a call for an unequivocal commitment from the Obama administration to take the lead in such an attack or to come to Israel’s aid if it goes first. …

a series of public statements by Israel’s ambassador to Washington, Michael Oren, suggesting that an Israeli strike would reap sufficient rewards to justify it  …

Still, Obama administration officials are not yet publicly buying the rhetoric. …

Netanyahu, who has had tense relations with Obama, is seen as close to the Republicans and has a longstanding friendship with Romney. …


Barack Obama must make a public case before promising to strike Iran.

For years now, Israelis have been noisily debating military action against Iran. And their conclusion, according to polls, is that America should do it. That’s somewhat ironic given that self-reliance—never again putting Jewish destiny in non-Jewish hands—is core to the Zionist ideal. But it’s also quite rational: an American strike would likely set back Tehran’s nuclear progress far more than an Israeli one would. And an American strike would not leave Israel as isolated in the world.  ….


Obama’s Drift Toward War With Iran

…  The cooked-up crisis, over Iran’s supposed option of “breaking out” to manufacture a weapon, goes on a false premise. As Gary Sick has explained, such an action would require Iran to expel the IAEA inspectors who are free to order a surprise look at any site.  …

it surely serves the interest of Netanyahu to stoke unreal fears, provided this can be done indirectly, through “legitimate” channels like the New York Times, as well as more extravagant channels like the casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson. In a recent address (summarized by Michael Isikoff in an excellent piece of reporting), Adelson said that “unfortunately” he had worn an American uniform rather than an Israeli one when he served in the armed forces. That is the mode of thinking on that side.  ….

The right-wing coalition government of Netanyahu “had told the Obama administration that they could accept diplomacy as long as Washington expected it would fail.”  …

in 2011, Admiral Mike Mullen, said more than once that an Israeli strike against Iran “would be a big, big, big problem for all of us.” …

Nothing could be more disastrous for America and nothing could be less necessary than war with Iran.
