If I haven’t written on this 50 times I haven’t mentioned it once. There is a reason why an Admiral with command experience is in charge in the middle east. One of my sons returns today from flying support in Iraq thank God. I warn him and his EOD lifer brother not to get tired because Bush’s attack on Iran is imminent and both sides are prepared as of today. I have been gathering the latest and waited until today before I put my story together.
Anyway, as the latest developments on both sides of the Iran issue played out yesterday showing that both sides are prepared for what is getting ready to happen I received and article and a summarization of it showed why many of us who try to get the truth out are thwarted successfully at every turn. This will happen despite what you think or are told!
America is steeped in conspiracy, and even more steeped in propaganda that discredits those who try to expose the conspiracies. Whether we’re talking about MLK, Jr., JFK, RFK, Iran-Contra, 9/11, or, most importantly, the status quo, anyone who works to uncover the truth is branded a “conspiracy nut” and discredited before any evidence has a fair hearing. The government/corporate/media version is THE VERSION. Anything else is illusory. The necessary Embrace of Conspiracy By Robert Shatterly:
It is obvious to say that we have been engineered into a culture that values competitive consumption and consumers instead of community cooperation and citizenship. Capitalism with its obsessive and necessary appetite for consumption, expanding markets, resource depletion, and increasing profits has consumed democracy.

Anyway these are the latest facts as we know them in the race for war with Iran: as most know by now Alexis Debat, director of terrorism and national security at the Nixon Center, said last week that US military planners were not preparing for “pinprick strikes” against Iran’s nuclear facilities. “They’re about taking out the entire Iranian military,” he said.
Debat was speaking at a meeting organized by The National Interest, a conservative foreign policy journal. He told The Sunday Times that the US military had concluded: “Whether you go for pinprick strikes or all-out military action, the reaction from the Iranians will be the same.” It was, he added, a “very legitimate strategic calculus”. President George Bush intensified the rhetoric against Iran last week, accusing Tehran of putting the Middle East “under the shadow of a nuclear holocaust”. He warned that the US and its allies would confront Iran “before it is too late”.
One Washington source said the “temperature was rising” inside the administration. Bush was “sending a message to a number of audiences”, he said to the Iranians and to members of the United Nations security council who are trying to weaken a tough third resolution on sanctions against Iran for flouting a UN ban on uranium enrichment.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) last week reported “significant” cooperation with Iran over its nuclear program and said that uranium enrichment had slowed. Tehran has promised to answer most questions from the agency by November, but Washington fears it is stalling to prevent further sanctions. Iran continues to maintain it is merely developing civilian nuclear power.
If you want to know the truth about Iran, Iranian women, and the IAEA I suggest you go to the web site of an Iranian woman living in America who is trying to educate Americans before it is too late and Bush attacks Iran. http://www.iranfacts.blogspot.com
As you know, regardless of what any of us do to get the truth out as to the march to war by little Bush and Iran. Iran is doing its share too as Iran’s leaders issued dual, defiant statements on Sunday, with the president announcing that the nation had 3,000 active centrifuges to enrich uranium and the top ayatollah appointing a new Islamic Revolutionary Guards commander who once advocated military force against students,Brig. Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari in December 2006.
The news of the change at the top of the Revolutionary Guards, in particular, was greeted with surprise and keen interest by Iranians. Ayatollah Khamenei announced that Gen. Yahya Rahim Safavi, who had led the force for a decade, would be replaced by Brig. Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari.
The Guards, which has about 200,000 members, controls a huge empire that has a stake in every significant corner of Iran’s economy and its civil system of governance. Mr. Ahmadinejad was a member of the Guards during the 1980 to 1988 war with Iraq, and he has placed dozens of former members in leadership positions around the country and in the central government in Tehran.
The Guards are, by design, the most economic and politically independent body in the country, outside of the supreme leader’s office. General Jafari has an established record of support for the theocratic system of government, and its hard-line policies. In 1999, he showed a willingness to use the guard’s military force to quell student riots. In a letter to Mohammad Khatami then the president, he wrote, “We have reached the end of our rope and can no longer tolerate it if the situation is not confronted.”
It is imperative that people realize all of the above facts and concerns are observations not of conspiracy theorists but of those who are trying to avert what is rapidly developing to the demise of the entire world!
