    Re: US Passes Strong Sanctions Against Iran

Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, is in Israel today on his way home from a visit to the Af/Pak front:

The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States Military, Admiral Michael G. Mullen, arrived in Israel today (June 27th, 2010) for a brief work-related visit in Israel as a guest of the IDF Chief of the General Staff, Lieutenant General Gabi Ashkenazi.

Adm. Mullen will also meet with the Head of Israeli Military Intelligence, Major General Amos Yadlin, and will receive up-to-date briefings.

Maybe it’s just a routine visit. Or maybe not. It sure makes me nervous.

News articles about ‘Iran sanctions’ (from Google)

:

 

The MSM ‘radio silence’ strikes me as strange, in lieu of the standard chest thumping, high fiving, saber rattling, and male grooming behaviors.

What in the Sam Hill is goin’ on here? Undecided

    Re: US Passes Strong Sanctions Against Iran

The mainstream media sabre rattling stage is over. Viewers have become habituated to the noise and just ignore it anyway. Those who have been following the Iranian issue closely, understand what the past impediments to bombing the cra* out of Iran were, and can see that the most difficult stumbling blocks have been removed. Being able to fly through Saudi air space, while somehow coercing Russia and China to distance themselves from Iran has been very helpful for the chicken hawks.

Obomba signed a treaty with Medvedev, agreeing to reduce nuclear stock piles by 30%, on April 8, of this year.  He probably procured an agreement with Medvedev to back away from supporting Iran as a pre-condition for signing it. In the following few months, Israel/U.S. recieved clearance  from Saudi Arabia to fly through their air space. Bingo…war seems assured, to this reader. And who better to push for a greatly expanded war, than the compromised man currently occupying the white house, a Nobel prize winner, no less? It’s an almost cosmic absurdity, seemingly sponsored by trickster forces, or the Lords of Irony,  for the Orwellian times we live in; permanent war for permanent peace.

Some day, no doubt, the Nobel numbskulls will have to publish an apologia for O’Bomba like the one they’ve posted for 1949 prizewinner Egaz Moniz, inventor of prefrontal lobotomy.

This humane visionary would insert an ice pick through the eye socket into the brain, swirl it round like a swizzle stick to turn the brain to grey mush, and voila! A new person … well, part of a person … emerged from the cerebral calamity.

But as a Swedish doctor named Bengt Janssen writes with aggrieved amazement,

I see no reason for indignation at what was done in the 1940s as at that time there were no other alternatives!

http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/medicine/articles/moniz/

And there you have it. Likewise poor O’Bomber, the eminent Nobelist, only did what he had to do. No alternatives, ya know!Cry

    Re: US Passes Strong Sanctions Against Iran

The rhetoric will ramp up soon (MSM will pick it up hardcore), and then it should go silent again for a  week or two.  When that happens we’ll know Russia has given the go ahead, and the game is on.  Then, that next rush of aggressive press coverage will coincide with UN, NATO and US propaganda to show cause for the conflict that will transpire IMO, before October of this year.  

This is all speculation.   But it’s speculation that I’ve pieced together from my conversations with people in the know.

The Guardian–Monday, June 28,2010

“Russia has in the past been reluctant to impose hard-hitting sanctions but backed the latest UN resolution following Tehran’s repeated defiance and clashed publicly with Iran over its change of tack. Israel’s president, Shimon Peres, today expressed “appreciation” of Medvedev’s statement.”

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/jun/28/iran-postpones-nuclear-talks

There  you go, Logan. Iran being skillfully maneuvered into place.

G-8 ‘fully believes’ Israel will attack Iran, says Italy PM

World leaders “believe absolutely” that Israel may decide to take military action against Iran to prevent the latter from acquiring nuclear weapons, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said Saturday.

“Iran is not guaranteeing a peaceful production of nuclear power [so] the members of the G-8 are worried and believe absolutely that Israel will probably react preemptively,” Berlusconi told reporters following talks with other Group of Eight leaders north of Toronto.

Israel must have the equivalent of AIPAC in all G8 countries.  Berlusconi mentions that “Israel may decide to take military action against Iran” but so far, almost all of the military hardware appears to be from the U.S.  Or is the U.S. military now considered to be under the control of Israel by the G8?
