Iran's Guards on war footing – London : Spy drone capture is US, Israel setback


Obama, Clinton, both houses of congress need a war, ANY war to avoid revolt for looting of U.S. Treasury

DEBKA Special Report
12/06/2011 - 6:56 AM (GMT+02:00)

Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has placed the Revolutionary Guards on a war footing amid fears that the West and Israel are about to attack their nuclear program, the London Telegraph, which has good ties with British intelligence, reported early Tuesday, Dec. 6.
 
    Monday, debkafile reported increasing indications that the Middle East is set for war, including an attack on Iran, between mid-December 2011 and mid-January 2012.

Tough, well trained, disciplined, motivated, definitely not Iraq
In obedience to Khamenei's directive to take all necessary measures to protect the regime, the Guards chief Gen. Mohammed Ali Jaafari has raised the operational readiness status of the country's forces in preparation for external strikes and covert attacks. He ordered Iran's arsenal of long-range Shahab missiles redistributed to secret sites around the country where they would be safe from enemy attack and could be used to launch retaliatory strikes; Guards units scattered to preset defense lines and air force "rapid reaction units" deployed after carrying out extensive exercises for responding to an enemy air attack on nuclear and strategic military targets.

    Saturday, Dec. 3, Israel's defense minister Ehud Barak, when asked about a covert war against Iran, denied it was taking place. Twenty-hours later, this clandestine war peaked in a major coup for Iran, its capture of the sophisticated US RQ-170 Sentinel stealth reconnaissance drone. Tehran reported that, apart from slight damage, the aircraft was shot down complete with all its top-secret electronic systems in working condition.
 
    An American military source confirmed that Iran had the RQ-170, but added there was "absolutely no indication the drone was shot down."

RQ-170
This leads to the conclusion that the Iranians were able to control the drone from a distance (over Afghanistan) and guide it across the border to land to Iran, say debkafile's military sources. The slight damage would then apply to the wings and may have been caused when it was brought in to land by an Iranian crew unused to handling an electronic warfare craft.

    Our sources add that possession of the drone is more than just a major intelligence coup for Tehran; it has acquired an important military edge before any overt military operation has been launched. 

   Western and Israeli war planners now have cause to fear that Iran has penetrated the heart of their most secret intelligence and electronic technological hardware for striking its nuclear infrastructure. If Tehran is capable of reaching out and guiding an American stealth drone into landing from a distance, it may also be able to control the systems of other aircraft, manned or unmanned.

     This feat recalls Hizballah's surprise attack on an Israeli missile boat in the 2006 Lebanon war when its Chinese-made shore-to-ship C-802 missile was enabled by Iranian-manned coastal radar interference to override the ship's advanced electronic defense systems and so put the Israeli Navy out of action within range of the Lebanese coast.

    According to an expert quoted by the Telegraph's senior military commentator Con Coughlin, the campaign of assassinations, cyber war and sabotage of recent weeks "looks like the 21st century form of war.

BREAKING : Suicide blast at Shia shrine in Kabul


The United States has lost the illegal "war" in Afghanistan against Taliban; Blast hits as hundreds gather to celebrate Ashura, killing at least 20, according to senior police official

Al Jazeera
12/06/2011

A suicide bomber has attacked a Shia Muslim shrine in central Kabul where hundreds of people had gathered to celebrate the festival of Ashura, causing many casualties, according to Afghan officials. 

Pre-Ashura ritual
Mohammad Zahir, a senior police official in the Afghan capital, said the blast on Tuesday morning had killed up to 20, but there were no firm details yet.

Ashura marks the martyrdom of the Prophet Mohammad's grandson Hussein in the battle of Karbala in Iraq in the year 680.

The blast occurred in the city centre as Shias gathered to carry out religious rituals to mark the day, a public holiday in Afghanistan.

Iran Warns of Wider Response to US Spy Missions


Hypocrites Obama, Clinton commit acts of war on Iran; Iran has every right, just as all countries do, to have a deterrent equal to that of those that threaten them - including nuclear weapons

FARS News Agency
12/06/2011

TEHRAN (FNA)- 

Iran's response to US spy drones will not be limited to the country's borders, a military source said after Iranian armed forces shot down another US spy drone yesterday.

    "Given the flagrant violation of our country's borders, the electronic and operational actions of the Islamic Republic of Iran's Armed Forces against the enemy planes will not be limited to the country's borders," an Iranian official told FNA.

RQ-170
The official had also informed FNA on Sunday afternoon that the country's forces had downed a US RQ-170 Sentinel drone over the Eastern parts of the country.

"An advanced RQ-170 unmanned American spy plane was shot down by Iran's armed forces. It suffered minor damage and is now in possession of Iran's Armed Forces," a military official told FNA on Sunday.

    In similar remarks, military sources told Iran's Arabic language Al Alam television that Tehran will intensify its response to the United States' spying operations.

    "The Iranian military's response to the American spy drone's violation of our airspace will not be limited to Iran's borders any more," a military source told Al Alam, without giving details.

    After a day of silence, both Pentagon and NATO officials acknowledged the shooting down of their Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) in eastern Iran, alleging that the aircraft with a mission to fly over western Afghanistan had gone astray.

Iranian SAM
The drone had been downed with help from the Iranian military's electronic warfare unit.

The military official warned of a strong and crushing response to any violations of the country's airspace by American drone aircraft.

   RQ-170 Sentinel is made by Lockheed Martin and is used for highly important, top secret missions. The UAV was used to keep watch on Osama bin Laden's compound in Pakistan as the raid that killed him was taking place earlier this year.

    The surveillance aircraft is equipped with stealth technology, but the US Air Force has not made public any specifics about the drone.

    Iran has shot done over a dozen US drones during the last few years.

    In January, Iranian forces shot down two pilotless US spy planes over the country's airspace, and after Washington denied the shooting down of its drones, Tehran offered to put them on public display.

    In July, Iranian military officials showed Russian experts several US drones shot down in Iran in recent years.

    Also in July, Iranian lawmaker Ali Aghazadeh Dafsari said Iran's Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) had shot down an unmanned US spy drone that was trying to gather information on an underground uranium enrichment site.

    Dafsari said the drone was flying over the Fordo facility near the holy city of Qom in central Iran.

    Iranian military official first announced in February 2005 that the United States had been flying surveillance drones over its airspace to spy on its nuclear and military facilities.

Gambar "Telanjang" Piramida di Garut

"Piramida Garut" diperkirakan lebih besar dan lebih tua dari Piramida Giza di Mesir


VIVA NEWS
By Elin Yunita Kristanti
12/01/2011

VIVAnews - Gunung di Garut, Jawa Barat itu bernama Sadahurip. Namun, ada juga orang yang menyebutnya dengan Gunung Putri, Gunung Leutik, atau Gunung Cinta. Masyarakat lokal bahkan punya sebutan sendiri: gunung keramat.

    Bentuknya memang tak biasa. Alih-alih kerucut, bentuk puncaknya mirip bangunan piramida seperti yang ada di Mesir. Gunung Sadahurip atau Gunung Putri kini menjadi buah bibir, gara-gara Tim Bencana Katastropik Purba yang dibentuk Kantor Staf Khusus Presiden Bidang Bantuan Sosial dan Bencana menemukan anomali. Diduga ada bangunan piramida buatan manusia di dalamnya. Sebutan "gunung piramida" pun sontak populer.

Garut
Yang luar biasa, "piramida Garut" diperkirakan lebih besar dan jauh lebih tua dibanding Piramida Giza di Mesir. Sekitar 10.000 tahun sebelum Masehi. Dibutuhkan proses eskavasi untuk membuktikan kebenarannya.

Anggota tim, Iwan Sumule mengatakan, semua proses ilmiah dan berbagai metode yang dimungkinkan dan disyaratkan telah dilakukan di sana. Termasuk georadar dan geolistrik, juga pengujian dengan carbon dating. Hasilnya, "ini bukan alami, melainkan man made," kata dia kepada VIVAnews.com, Kamis 1 Desember 2011.

    Tim, dia menambahkan, juga menggunakan metode Interferometric Syntetic Aperture Radar (IFSAR). 
 
    "Dihasilkan gambar yang benar-benar telanjang. Bisa dilihat, (dari gambar) yang berwarna kuning adalah batu. Sementara warna biru adalah air," jelas Iwan.

    Jika disinar, batu akan memantulkan cahaya. Itulah yang ditangkap IFSAR. Apakah sudah pernah dilakukan penggalian tanah hingga lapisan batuannya? "Sudah, cuma beberapa meter saja. Batu itu yang kami gunakan untuk tes carbon dating," kata Iwan.

    Yang menarik, dari hasil IFSAR bisa dilihat, tak hanya sekedar bentuk piramid. Di sekelilingnya juga nampak batuan, lebih pendek. "Bisa jadi itu piramida yang lebih kecil, atau spinx seperti yang ada di Mesir."

  Namun, apa persisnya bentuk bangunan dan peradaban mana yang membangunnya, tim belum bisa memastikan. "Kami belum melakukan eskavasi, kalau sudah, bisa bercerita banyak hal. Soal asal muasal, mengapa ada di situ, dan siapa yang membangunnya. Ada historisnya," kata Iwan.

                                            Kapan eskavasi dilakukan?

    Iwan menjelaskan, saat ini pihaknya masih melakukan komunikasi intensif dengan instansi terkait, para muspida, serta kepala desa dan masyarakat Garut. "Bahwa ada temuan fenomenal di lokasi yang dikeramatkan oleh penduduk lokal. Kami sedang mencoba membongkar pikiran itu, bisa dirasionalkan," kata dia.

    Salah satunya, Iwan menjelaskan, beberapa waktu lalu di sebuah media televisi, Kepala Desa Sukahurip -- tempat gunung berada -- menceritakan, ada banyak kilatan petir dan sinar di sekitar gunung. "Menurut kami, itu masuk akal, karena mengambil sampel di Mesir, piramida tak hanya sekedar kuburan Firaun, tapi ada teknologi di dalamnya," kata dia. Teknologi yang maju -- bahkan untuk ukuran masa kini misalnya, teknologi hidro, pembangkit listrik, dan ada medan magnet. Ada juga literatur yang menyebut piramid dibangun untuk mengantisipasi bah.

    Iwan menambahkan, tak hanya masyarakat yang skeptis terhadap temuan tim. Juga beberapa instansi terkait. "Mereka kurang peduli. Antara percaya tidak percaya. Padahal semua metode penelitian sudah kami lakukan, ini temuan yang sangat fenomenal," kata dia. "Harusnya kita sadar dan sangat bangga, ada peradaban besar dan  tua yang berada di bumi nusantara."

THE CLOCK IS TICKING: "Shadow War" Heating Up, War With Iran: A Provocation Away?


The clock has been ticking, while the World looked on and did nothing to stop it; Obama, Clinton, Netanyahu responsible

Global Research
By Tom Burghardt
12/05/2011

Amid conflicting reports that a huge explosion at Iran's uranium conversion facility in Isfahan occurred last week, speculation was rife that Israel and the United States were stepping-up covert attacks against defense and nuclear installations.

    The Isfahan complex transforms mined uranium into uranium fluoride gas which is then "spun" by centrifuges that enrich it into usable products for medical research and for Iran's civilian nuclear energy program.

Isfhan nuclear power plant, Iran
While Iranian officials sought to distance themselves from initial reporting by the semi-official Fars news agency that a "loud explosion" was heard across the city, but that "the sound of the explosion was from [a] military exercise," has been contradicted by several sources.

    Indeed, some Iranian officials have denied that an explosion even took place.

    On Tuesday however, The Times reported that "satellite imagery ... confirmed that a blast that rocked the city of Isfahan on Monday struck the uranium enrichment facility there, despite denials by Tehran."

   "The images," Times reporter Sheera Frenkel averred, "clearly showed billowing smoke and destruction, negating Iranian claims yesterday that no such explosion had taken place. Israeli intelligence officials told The Times that there was 'no doubt' that the blast struck the nuclear facilities at Isfahan and that it was 'no accident'."

    Despite clear evidence that Israel and the United States have stepped-up their shadow war against the Islamic Republic, Defense Minister Ehud Barak "played down speculation on Saturday that Israel and U.S.-led allies were waging clandestine war on Iran, saying sanctions and the threat of military strikes were still the way to curb its nuclear program," Reuters reported.

    Proverbial "facts on the ground" however, tell a different tale.

    The latest attack on Iran's civilian nuclear program followed a blast two weeks ago at the sprawling Bid Ganeh missile base 25 miles west of Tehran.

Big Ganesh explosion blamed on Mossad - MEK
That blast killed upwards of 30 members of the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), including Major General Hassan Moqqadam, a senior leader of Iran's missile program.


    Satellite imagery shows much of the base in ruins. The attack was described by Time Magazine as the work "of Israel's external intelligence service, Mossad."

   In a backhanded confirmation that Monday's blast was the handiwork of Mossad and their terrorist proxies, the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK), Frenkel wrote that "Dan Meridor, the Israeli Intelligence Minister, said: 'There are countries who impose economic sanctions and there are countries who act in other ways in dealing with the Iranian nuclear threat'."

    Frenkel reported that "Major-General Giora Eiland, Israel's former director of national security told Israel's army radio that the Isfahan blast was no accident. 'There aren't many coincidences, and when there are so many events there is probably some sort of guiding hand, though perhaps it's the hand of God'," Eiland said.

    The Isfahan blast, as with other recent attacks, were allegedly in response to allegations made last month in a report filed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that Iran may be seeking to develop nuclear weapons.

    However, while the "Agency continues to verify the non-diversion of declared nuclear material at the nuclear facilities," the ginned-up report relied on information provided by "Member states," presumably Israel and United States in the form of forged computer laptop documents and other "intelligence sources."

    The Agency claims they were "unable to provide credible assurance about the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran, and therefore to conclude that all nuclear material in Iran is in peaceful activities."

    Black operations targeting the Islamic Republic aren't solely the province of America's "stationary aircraft carrier in the Middle East," Israel. As Seymour Hersh reported last spring in The New Yorker: "In the past six years, soldiers from the Joint Special Operations Force, working with Iranian intelligence assets, put in place cutting-edge surveillance techniques, according to two former intelligence officers."

U.S. Joint Special Operations Forc
In 2007, ABC News disclosed that "the CIA has received secret presidential approval to mount a covert 'black' operation to destabilize the Iranian government."

Unnamed sources told ABC News that President Bush signed a presidential finding "that puts into motion a CIA plan that reportedly includes a coordinated campaign of propaganda, disinformation and manipulation of Iran's currency and international financial transactions."

    Congress has appropriated some $300 million for the CIA and the Pentagon's covert war.

     In the intervening years, those programs have turned lethal. Widely applauded by "liberal" Democrats and "conservative" Republicans alike, these programs have continued, indeed expanded under Barack Obama's "progressive" Democratic administration.

   Despite the fact that there "is also constant satellite coverage of major suspect areas in Iran," The New Yorker reported "that nothing significantly new had been learned to suggest that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapon."

'Shadow War' Heating Up

    Iran's intelligence services haven't been sitting idly by watching American, British, and Israeli terror operations.

    On Sunday, Al Jazeera reported that the Iranian armed forces "brought down an unmanned US spy plane."

    "Iran's military has downed an intruding RQ-170 American drone in eastern Iran," Iran's Arabic-language Al Alam state television network quoted an unnamed source as saying on Sunday."

    "The semiofficial Fars news agency," Al Jazeera averred, said "that the plane is now in the possession of Iran's armed forces. The Fars news agency is close to the powerful Revolutionary Guard."

    "Fars reported that the drone had been brought down through a combined effort by Iran's armed forces, air defence forces and its electronic warfare unit after the plane briefly violated the country's airspace at its eastern border."

RQ-170 drone
An unnamed source, according to AFP, warned that Iran's armed response would "not be limited to our country's borders" for the "blatant territorial violation."

AFP also reported that in June, "Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh, the commander of the Guards' aerospace unit, said Iran had shown Russian experts the US drones in its possession.

   "'Russian experts requested to see these drones and they looked at both the downed drones and the models made by the Guards through reverse engineering,' he said."

    In a further sign that the "shadow war" is heating up, last week's occupation of the British embassy in Tehran may have been a warning to the U.K. over sanctioned leaks by the British defense establishment to The Guardian which suggested that "Britain's armed forces are stepping up their contingency planning for potential military action against Iran."

   "In anticipation of a potential attack," The Guardian disclosed that "British military planners are examining where best to deploy Royal Navy ships and submarines equipped with Tomahawk cruise missiles over the coming months as part of what would be an air and sea campaign.

    The embassy occupation and subsequent downgrade of diplomatic relations between Britain and Iran mean these threats are being taken very seriously indeed.

   Asia Times Online reported that Iran's claim "to have arrested 12 spies working for the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is potentially a major blow to American intelligence-gathering efforts in Iran and to American intelligence generally."

    Following closely on the heels of last month's arrest in Lebanon of some 30 CIA operatives by Hezbollah "is suggestive of a major American intelligence defeat, if not a full-blown disaster," Asia Times analyst Mahan Abedin wrote. 

Far from being a high-quality intelligence operation, Abedin averred that the "CIA is operating a lower threshold of quality control in terms of agent recruitment and management" and that this reflects "a scatter-gun approach by the CIA inasmuch as the agency is targeting virtually any Iranian citizen it believes could potentially provide useful information on the CIA's target set."

    According to Abedin's Iranian sources, the CIA's team of "operatives and analysts" appears to have been "embedded within numerous official and unofficial American organizations, including US embassies, multinational corporations, medium-sized commercial organizations, recruitment consultancies, immigration and wider legal services, academic and quasi-academic institutions and reputable (i.e. longstanding) as well as newly set up think tanks."

    In other words, as many researchers have amply documented, efforts by the U.S. secret state to subvert a target nation's internal defenses prior to full-on "regime change" either through direct warfare (Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, now Syria) or via an American-brokered "color revolution" (Yugoslavia, Venezuela, Ukraine, Georgia) are not about "freedom and democracy" but to achieve Washington's geopolitical goals: total economic and political domination.

   "But despite clear improvements in counter-espionage capabilities and protective security measures," Abedin writes, "Iran is still some way away from making it prohibitively costly for Western agencies to operate inside the country. Indeed, all the major West European, North American and Israeli intelligence services are either active inside Iran or work closely with some elements of the Iranian diaspora."

  Describing the "psychological warfare" dimensions of a looming confrontation, Abedin wrote in a subsequent Asia Times Online piece that the covert war operates on two fronts, "one visible and rhetorical and conducted through official and unofficial media and the other secret and centered on sabotage."

   "In so far as the former is concerned Iran has risen to the challenge by superseding tough American and Israeli rhetoric with even tougher rhetoric."

    "However," Abedin averred, "it is on the sabotage front--where Iran appears to be under attack from several directions--that the Islamic Republic is raising eyebrows even amongst its hardcore supporters by displaying remarkable tolerance in the face of intolerable provocations."

Iranian ballistic missile
"More broadly, the Iranians are not paying sufficient attention to the long-term consequences of military confrontation with the United States and her allies."

That the "long-term consequences" of a Western-led attack will be an unmitigated disaster for the Iranian people, indeed for people across the entire region and for world peace and stability as a whole, doesn't mean that Washington won't gamble that a "limited war" could be "contained."

As analyst William Blum wrote in his Anti-Empire Report: "The secret to understanding US foreign policy is that there is no secret. Principally, one must come to the realization that the United States strives to dominate the world. Once one understands that, much of the apparent confusion, contradiction, and ambiguity surrounding Washington's policies fades away."

    "Examine a map," Blum observed. "Iran sits directly between two of the United States' great obsessions--Iraq and Afghanistan ... directly between two of the world's greatest oil regions--the Persian Gulf and Caspian Sea areas ... it's part of the encirclement of the two leading potential threats to American world domination--Russia and China ... Tehran will never be a client state or obedient poodle to Washington. How could any good, self-respecting Washington imperialist resist such a target? Bombs Away!"

    Commenting on the Isfahan attack which described Israeli "black ops" as a "route to war," left-wing analyst Richard Silverstein wrote on the Tikun Olam web site, that "the tragedy of this black ops program is that it will not rattle or deter Iran, as Israeli intelligence believes."

Iranian military:  Tough, well trained, well motivated
"Contrary to what Israeli generals believe," Silverstein wrote, "the Iranians are not pushovers, they can't be intimidated. They're willing to die for their country even more than Israelis. They've fought defensive wars going back decades and lost millions in conflict. A few explosions, assassinations, and computer viruses will not spook them."

    The drift towards war, which include moves to strangle Iran's economy prior to a strike, has gained traction on multiple fronts.

    On Friday, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed legislation as part of the $644. 3 billion 2012 Defense Authorization Act that "would give the president the power starting July 1 to bar foreign financial institutions that do business with Iran's central bank from having correspondent bank accounts in the U.S.," Bloomberg BusinessWeek reported.

   Coupled with reports that Germany and other EU member states will "considerably strengthen" sanctions against Iran, the leftist publication German Foreign Policy disclosed that "Berlin is participating in the intensification of western pressure on Teheran."

    Rejecting NATO rhetoric that new punitive economic measures are over "the so-called nuclear dispute," GFP's analyst correctly states that the "conflict is, in fact, over hegemony, with the West seeking to defend at all costs its predominance in the Middle Eastern resource-rich regions."

    While "Berlin's politicians are still divided over Iran ... Transatlantic oriented forces are preparing the public for possible military strikes."

Russian aircraft carrier
Regarding the strengthening of the West's sanctions regime, the World Socialist Web Site reported that the EU has "agreed to sanction some 200 Iranian companies, individuals and organisations. European Council President Herman Van Rompuy met with Obama on Monday and issued a joint statement expressing 'deep concern' over Iran's nuclear program, raising the possibility of 'additional measures' against the Iranian regime."

    "France," left-wing critic Oliver Campbell noted, "which is not a major importer of Iranian oil, issued a statement calling for 'new sanctions on an unprecedented scale,' including freezing the assets of the Iranian central bank and putting an embargo on Iranian oil."

    "Russia, which has acquiesced in imposing previous sanctions on Iran, has bluntly opposed further punitive measures. Russian foreign ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich denounced the latest sanctions as 'unacceptable' and 'contradictory to international law.' China and Turkey have also opposed additional UN penalties."

     There are new signs that this sharply escalating crisis is fraught with peril.

    Last week, Russia Today reported that "Moscow is deploying warships at its base in the Syrian port of Tartus. The long-planned mission comes, providentially, at the very moment when it could help prevent a potential conflict in the strategically important Middle Eastern country.

­   "The Russian battle group will consist of three vessels led by the heavy aircraft-carrying missile cruiser, Admiral Kuznetsov."

   "Of course, the Russian naval forces in the Mediterranean will be incommensurate with those of the US 6th Fleet, which includes one or two aircraft carriers and several escort ships," former Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Viktor Kravchenko told Russia Today.

    Pointedly, Kravchenko warned, "today, no one talks about possible military clashes, since an attack on any Russian ship would be regarded as a declaration of war with all the consequences."

    Richard Silverstein grimly observed "that Israel knows that black ops will turn Iran more intransigent. It welcomes such Iranian rigidity because it means the day is closer when it will be set loose on the Iranians. Israel's policy toward Iran is scorched earth."

    The clock is ticking...

Israel will do what it takes for its security: Netanyahu


Deluded:  Netanyahu believes he can personally survive a war that would leave Tel Aviv a smoking hole in an irradiated landscape

Agency France-Presse
12/04/2011

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday stressed he has the right and duty to take drastic measures to protect national security, in what local media said could be a veiled threat against Iran.

    "I would like to believe that we will always act with responsibility, courage and determination to make the right decisions, that will ensure our future and security," Netanyahu said.

Fruitcake:  Netanyahu believes he is omnipotent, radiation-proof
Speaking at the annual memorial service for Israel's founding premier David Ben Gurion, Netanyahu noted the late leader's "willingness to make the tough decisions, necessary" to ensure Israel's security and future.

"From within and the outside... great pressure was applied to Ben Gurion" to not declare Israel's independence in 1948, said Netanyahu. "They all told him -- the time is not right, not now."

    Netanyahu did not mention Iran in his speech or its nuclear programme.

   But Israel's private-run Channel 2 as well as public Channel 1 noted Netanyahu seemed to be comparing what he sees as Israel's duty to curb what the Jewish state says is Iran's nuclear ambition and Ben Gurion's dilemma on declaring the state of Israel.

   "While it seems to be a speech about the first premier and his decision to found the state, this is actually a speech Netanyahu made about himself, and his decision to attack Iran," said Amit Segal, political reporter for Channel 2.

    Israel, which has the Middle East's sole if undeclared nuclear arsenal, has long accused Iran of trying to develop atomic weapons under cover of its civil nuclear programme.

Dimona nuclear plant, Israel
Tehran strongly denies the charge and has accused Israel of trying to sabotage its civil nuclear programme and kill its nuclear scientists.

Netanyahu's comments come amid growing tension over Iran and after US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta vowed on Friday to prevent Tehran from obtaining nuclear weapons, but arguing for the administration's emphasis on diplomacy and sanctions rather than military action, which had not been ruled out by President Barack Obama but was "a last resort."

    Last week Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak ruled out a strike against Iran's nuclear facilities "for the moment," in remarks to public radio, but said that the Jewish state would keep all options open.

    "We have no intention of acting for the moment... We should not engage in war when it is not necessary, but there may come a time or another when we are forced to face tests," Barak said.

"Our position has not changed on three points: a nuclear Iran is unacceptable, we are determined to stop that, and all options are on the table," he added.

But Former Mossad chief Meir Dagan on Thursday reiterated his contention that Iran is sufficiently far from having nuclear weapons, and emphasised his objection to a military strike at this timepoint.

    "The military option should be the last alternative," Dagan said.

    Israel has pushed Washington and the EU for tough sanctions against Tehran, but warned that it would not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons, and that military action to stop the programme remained an option.

Obama Officials Discuss Israel at Their Peril


Israeli government, run by madmen, believes it owns America; will fight to the last drop of U.S. military blood

It's a tough world out there for Obama administration officials seeking to speak candidly about Israel. From Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to  Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and U.S. ambassador to Belgium Howard Gutman, efforts to strike an even-handed tone fell flat in the last few days in separate events concerning America's Middle Eastern ally.
 

Howard Gutman: In a nuanced discussion on the causes of anti-Semitism in the Middle East, U.S. ambassador to Belgium Howard Gutman spoke to an association of Jewish lawyers in Brussels last week and is now being called on to resign by GOP presidential candidates Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney.
 

Gutman
According to a transcript published by the European Jewish Press, he said there is a distinction between traditional antisemitism, or basic hatred of Jews, and "hatred and indeed sometimes and all too growing intimidation and violence directed at Jews generally as a result of the continuing tensions between Israel and the Palestinian territories and other Arab neighbors in the Middle East." He added, "every new settlement announced in Israel, every rocket shot over a border or suicide bomber on a bus, and every retaliatory military strike exacerbates the problem and provides a setback here in Europe for those fighting hatred and bigotry here in Europe."

     On Sunday, the Romney campaign issued a statement urging President Obama to fire Gutman for "rationalizing and downplaying anti-Semitism and linking it to Israeli policy toward the Palestinians." In a tweet, Gingrich piled, on saying "Pres Obama should fire his ambassador to Brussels for being so wrong about anti-semitism." What many critics, including the New York Post's Benni Avni failed to mention is that Gutman is the Jewish son of a Holocaust survivor. That doesn't mean he's incapable of making insensitive remarks, but as Adam Serwer at Mother Jones points out, it's quite a stretch to suggest he was blaming Jews for anti-Semitism. "Gutman's suggestion that anti-Semitism would subside if a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict could be reached isn't the same as saying Israelis or Jews are 'responsible' for anti-Semitism."

Panetta panicking:  Gave disastrous speech, begs Israel to negotiate
Leon Panetta: On Friday, during a speech at the Brookings Institution's Saban Center for Middle East Policy, Panetta lamented Israel's growing isolation in the Middle East. While maintaining that U.S. support for Israel is "unshakable" and that Muslim states deserve a share of the blame, he said Israel could be doing more to forge friendly relations. "For example, Israel can reach out and mend fences with those who share an interest in regional stability — countries like Turkey and Egypt, as well as Jordan," he said. "This is not impossible. If the gestures are rebuked, the world will see those rebukes for what they are. And that is exactly why Israel should pursue them." That comment sparked a response from the Anti-Defamation League saying his statements unfairly laid the blame on Israel. "We are deeply troubled by the message sent by Secretary Panetta at precisely a moment when the region is so volatile and uncertain." Simplifying his remarks, The Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin said "Israel’s isolated, you see, and it’s Israel’s fault, according to the Obama administration’s world view." That's a pretty harsh response for merely stating that "increasing communication and cooperation" with neighboring countries can't hurt.

Analysis: "Cold War" with Iran heats up across Mideast


"Mainstream media" now "desensitizing" public to eventual war with Iran, Syria

Reuters
By Peter Apps, Political Risk Correspondent
12/06/2011

LONDON (Reuters) - 
Worries of Israel striking Iran might or might not be overblown but across the region the largely hidden "cold war" between Tehran and its enemies is escalating fast, bringing with it wider risk of conflict.

     Speculation Israel might attack Iran's nuclear program has been rife in the Israeli media and oil markets in recent weeks, with concerns that Tehran might retaliate with devastating attacks on Gulf oil shipments.

Insane Obama takes his orders from madman Netanyahu.....
But that debate, experts say, misses large parts of the bigger picture. An increasingly isolated Iran alarms not just Israel and the West but its Gulf neighbors, especially longtime foe Saudi Arabia, and they are already fighting back - and the confrontation goes well beyond simply tightening sanctions.

     From proxy wars in Iraq and Syria to computer worm attacks and unexplained explosions in Iran - to allegations of an assassination plot in Washington - a confrontation once kept behind the scenes is breaking into increasingly open view.

   The storming of Britain's Tehran embassy last week - and the tit-for-tat shutdown of Iran's embassy in London - were just the latest signs that already limited dialogue is beginning to break down. That, analysts say, is inherently dangerous.

     "With Iran, you have a government that is increasingly isolated and acting in increasingly unpredictable ways," says Jon Alterman, director of the Middle East program at the Center for Strategic and National Studies in Washington.

.... to start another war with this nutcase......
"There is certainly the risk that a country will take the deliberate decision to attack Iran. But there is also the risk that something happens that provokes... a war that nobody planned and nobody wants."

    With the euro zone crisis still far from over and worldwide demand already faltering, such action and the resulting oil price surge could be disastrous for the global economy.

    Confrontation is, of course, far from new. Tehran has long used militant groups such as Lebanon's Hezbollah and Hamas in the Palestinian territories to shape regional politics and strike enemies, particularly Israel.

    The United States and Britain long accused Iran of using Shi'ite Muslim militias in Iraq to kill Western troops and impose Tehran's agenda.

... and piss off guys like Muqtada al-Sadr
The Sunni-ruled states of the Gulf, particularly Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, say Iran stirs up unrest in their Shi'ite communities, although many Western analysts believe blaming Iran for protests this year in those countries is an overstatement or at least oversimplification.

Many such confrontations across the region appear escalating fast - and becoming much harder for Washington and its allies to control.

PROXY WARS

    
    "U.S. and Western power in the region is weakening, and that is leaving a vacuum - most notably in Iraq - and you can see the main stakeholders in the region reacting to Iran's readiness to fill that vacuum," says Reva Bhalla, head of analysis at US private intelligence company Stratfor.

    This year's uprising in Syria - Iran's rare Arab friend - has created a new battlefield. Since the early days of the uprising, U.S. officials repeatedly and pointedly said they believed Assad's government was receiving support from Tehran.

     Assad has since been rapidly abandoned by the Arab League, in a diplomatic effort led by Saudi Arabia and the other Sunni Arab Gulf states. Analysts and officials say that could have as much to do with pushing back against Iran as in reining in killings and rights abuses in Syria itself.

Obama, Netanyahu have backed Assad into a corner
Saudi or other Arab backing for the increasingly armed opposition could escalate matters further, potentially producing a sectarian civil war lasting years and spilling across borders into neighboring states.

     In Iraq, the withdrawal of U.S. forces by the end of this year leaves more room for both Iran and Sunni Arab neighbors to intervene through proxy militias. At worst, that could reignite the Sunni-Shia infighting that nearly tore the country apart during the US occupation.

     "A proxy Saudi-Iranian war in Iraq represents a very considerable threat to oil supplies," said Alastair Newton, chief political analyst at Japanese bank Nomura.

POWER STRUGGLE

     Some of the increased friction with its neighbors could be a symptom of a power struggle within Iran itself, Newton said.

     "I think one of the reasons you're seeing temperature rising between Iran and others is because you're seeing temperature rising in Tehran itself."

Mindless:  Iranians overrun UK Embassy
Recent events such as the embassy storming, in which Iran seemed willing to tear up the international rulebook, could be a sign of increasing clout of hardline clerics and Revolutionary Guard commanders.

     
   The attack on Britain's embassy prompted widespread international condemnation and looks to have ushered in a much tighter sanctions. That too may strengthen the hardliners.

      The United States said in October it had caught Iran plotting to blow up the Saudi ambassador to Washington DC in a downtown restaurant. Whether or not the plot was genuine - and whoever was behind it - it marked a further worsening of relations.

COVERT ACTION

     Iran's enemies appear to be using unconventional methods against it, suspected of striking within its borders. Israel and the United States both make clear they view covert operations as a sensible alternative to conventional military action.

Good news, U.S. custom military coffin makers: more customers
Last year's Stuxnet computer worm, which damaged computers used in industrial machinery, was widely believed to have been a U.S.-Israeli attack to cripple Iranian nuclear centrifuges.

     
    

    Two explosions last month in Iran, one of which killed a Revolutionary Guards gunnery general and around a dozen other officers, prompted widespread speculation in Israel that its intelligence services were involved.

     Iran said the first blast was an accident and has not given clear accounts of the second incident.

     Israeli officials refuse to confirm or deny they were behind any specific incidents. Several commentators and newspapers warned such action could still backfire badly - perhaps prompting the kind of rocket attacks on Israel launched last week by Hizbollah from Lebanon.

     "Faced with such operations, the Iranian regime is embarking on and will embark on a series of actions of its own," said a front-page article in the Israeli newspaper Maariv by Nadav Eyal, foreign editor for Israel's Channel Ten television.

     As to whether a deliberate air strike on Iran's nuclear program is genuinely more likely in the coming months, experts are divided. The U.S. withdrawal from Iraq makes it possible for Israeli jets to pass through its airspace without needing U.S. permission. But many say the costs would be too high.

     "The problem is that no one knows what the mid-term consequences would be," said Alterman at Washington's Center for Strategic and International Studies. "It could simply encourage the regime in place and intensify their commitment to following a nuclear program with even more energy than before."

High court to hear suit over Cheney event arrest


The real questions are why are War Criminals Cheney, Rove, Bush, Rice, Rumsfeld, Powell, Wolfowitz, etc., etc. still walking around free today; why were Bush-era criminals like Rove still allowed to defy subpoenas by "Attorney General" Holder; will Cheney "Brown Shirts" be allowed to stomp on Constitution

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) —  
The Supreme Court said Monday it will hear an appeal from Secret Service agents who say they should be shielded from a lawsuit over their arrest of a Colorado man who confronted Vice President Dick Cheney.

Madman Cheney thinks he is above the law
The justices will review a federal appeals court decision to allow Steven Howards of Golden, Colo., to pursue his claim that the arrest violated his free speech rights. Howards was detained by Cheney's security detail in 2006 after he told Cheney of his opposition to the war in Iraq.

Howards also touched Cheney on the shoulder, then denied doing so under questioning. Appellate judges in Denver said the inconsistency gave the agents reason to arrest Howards.

    Even so, the appeals court said Howards could sue the agents for violating his rights — an unusual twist that the agents and the Obama administration said conflicts with other appeals court decisions and previous high court rulings in similar cases.

   Justice Elena Kagan is not taking part in the case, probably because she worked on it while serving in the Justice Department.

    Howards' lawsuit grew out of a chance encounter with Cheney at a shopping center in the mountain resort of Beaver Creek.

Bush criminals threaten media, attempt to hide in plain sight
The environmental consultant, now 59, was taking his older son to a piano recital when he saw Cheney emerge from a grocery store and begin talking to people and shaking hands. Howards came to the attention of Cheney's security detail when an agent heard him say into his cell phone that he was going to ask Cheney "how many kids he killed today."

    While the son continued to the recital, Howards waited to meet the vice president. When it was his turn, Howards told Cheney his "policies in Iraq are disgusting," according to court papers. Then, as he departed, Howards touched Cheney's right shoulder with his open hand. Agents who witnessed the contact did not think it was serious enough to justify an arrest.

    Still, Agent Virgil D. "Gus" Reichle Jr. was asked to interview Howards because of the confrontation and the overheard cell phone conversation. Reichle testified that Howards at first refused to talk to him, then denied that he assaulted Cheney or even touched him.
Traitor Rove thinks he is above law also
 According to Howards, the agent also became "visibly angry" when Howards again expressed his views about the war. Reichle said that the overheard cell phone conversation, the confrontation with Cheney, Howards' initial refusal to talk and other factors led him to arrest Howards for assault. He later was charged with harassment, but that charge was dismissed. The other agent, Dan Doyle, overheard Howards' cell phone comment.

Howards filed his civil rights suit soon after.

    The situation was made worse, he said, by the presence of his younger son, then 8. He witnessed his father get handcuffed and taken away. Howards asked what would happen to his son.

    "He told me, 'We'll contact social services,'" Howards said. "I wasn't in a position to go ballistic, but I can still hear him saying that in my head."

    The legal issue in the case is whether agents, and other law enforcement officers, should be shielded from rights lawsuits when they have a good reason, or probable cause, to make an arrest.

    The administration says that officers responsible for protecting the president and vice president have to make quick decisions about potential threats and often work in politically charged environments.

Powell convinced the World Saddam had WMD's
In deciding whether to make an arrest, "these agents should not err always on the side of caution because they fear being sued," Solicitor General Donald Verrilli Jr. said in court papers.
Sean Gallagher, the agent's Denver-based lawyer, said "the court should be very careful that it doesn't' develop a rule that inhibits the ability of the Secret Service to protect the president."

    The Supreme Court has previously ruled out damages claims for retaliatory prosecutions when there was probable cause to bring criminal charges in the first place. Some appeals courts already have extended that rule to retaliatory arrests.

War Criminal Trial bait:  Condoleeza Rice
In a telephone interview, Howards said the government is trying to make it easier for law enforcement to arrest people. "I'd prefer if the Justice Department would simply acknowledge that it's not OK to arrest people simply for disagreeing with government policies," Howards said.

Separately, David Lane, Howards' lawyer, has made clear that he wants to question Cheney under oath as the person best able to recount what happened. Courts have so far not allowed it.

    Lane called on the high court "to vindicate free speech in America and to stop abusive law enforcement from retaliating against people when they speak out."

    The case will be argued in the spring.

    The case is Reichle and Doyle v. Howards, 11-262.
