Military Strike on Iran Would Trigger WWIII : Iranian General

Obama, Clinton, JCS can't claim they weren't warned

PRESS TV
09/23/2012

A senior Iranian military commander has warned that an Israeli strike on the Islamic Republic could trigger the World War III.


Iranian Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh
“We see the United States and the Zionist regime [of Israel] alongside one another and can by no means imagine that the Zionist regime would initiate a war [against Iran] without the US support….In case of the eruption of such a [war] condition, the situation would spin out of control and management; this war is likely to degenerate into the World War III. It means that some countries might enter the war in favor of or against Iran,” Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the Aerospace Division of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), said on Al-Alam television on Sunday.

“An independent war between Iran and the Zionist regime or the US could not be imagined,” the general said, adding that in case a war breaks out, Iran would be on collision course with both sides.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran considers the US bases in the region as part of the American soil and will definitely target them if a war breaks out,” he added.


Iranians have enough advanced missiles to turn Persian Gulf into junkyard and Israel into a parking lot - and Obama, Clinton, Panetta and the JCS know it
 
He went on to say that “One should not imagine that the countries in the region would declare neutrality if a war breaks outs.”

On Saturday, IRGC chief Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said a war on Iran “will eventually happen,” warning that the attack will lead to the Israeli regime’s obliteration.

Israel is stepping up threats of carrying out a unilateral strike against Iran’s nuclear energy facilities before the US presidential election on November 6. However, the US opposes any Israeli military action at the current juncture.

Israeli threats are based on the unsubstantiated claims that the peaceful nuclear activities of the Islamic Republic have been diverted to the acquisition of military nuclear capability.

Benghazi Attack: Why the White House Changed its Story

Desperate Obama, State Department fall back on same old "terrorist" hype as independent investigators home in on CIA operation to kill Ambassador Stevens and his staff in order to inflame American public opinion, justify Iran invasion

Christian Science Monitor

President Obama has been forced to reassess his view of what caused the attack in Benghazi, Libya that killed US Ambassador Christopher Stevens, raising questions about whether the White House has a solid grasp on the underpinnings of the angry convulsions rocking the Middle East and the impact of the so-called “Cairo doctrine” laid out by Obama shortly after he took office in 2009.


Another CIA victim; another botched CIA operation
The White House initially laid the blame for the attack, as well as dozens of other protests that continue to roil the Mideast, on a YouTube clip from a movie called “The Innocence of Muslims” insulting of the Prophet Mohammed. White House spokesman Jay Carney first said the attack came “in response to … a film that we have judged to be reprehensible and disgusting.”

But this week, Mr. Carney changed the White House position and called the killing of Ambassador Stevens and three more diplomatic personnel a “terrorist attack.” In a TV interview Friday, Obama added that radical Libyan factions had used the movie as an “excuse” for a sophisticated incursion.

IN PICTURES: Anger across the Muslim world

To be sure, when President Obama in 2009 offered a “new beginning” for US-Mideast relations based on “mutual respect and mutual interest,” he also acknowledged that turmoil in the region had historical antecedents that “go beyond any current policy debate.”


Israeli film exploded across Muslim world
But emerging information about the attack and the continuing protests, some of which have turned deadly in recent days, have contrasted the President’s lofty hopes for the region with the impact of that policy, and whether it really quells tensions by reducing hatred for the US and the West among radical Muslims. Favorable views in Muslim countries toward the US dropped from 25 percent in 2009 to 15 percent in 2012, according to a Pew Global Attitudes survey released in June.

To some analysts, the seismic cultural and political convulsions in the past year, including protests in 20 nations over the YouTube clip, is testing the central premise of adjusting American interests while wielding softer power in the region.

“On … big issues that help define U.S.-Muslim relations – Iran, the stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, and the Arab Spring – the President has seen a combination of setback, stalemate, and frustration,” writes Ben Feller of the Associated Press in a detailed analysis.

Overall, President Obama continues to receive significantly higher marks from Americans than his GOP challenger, Mitt Romney, when it comes to foreign policy.

But the past two weeks have also been a reality check for an administration still trying to understand the Benghazi incursion and the continuing protests across the region, an effort underscored for many Americans by the sight of the black Salafism flags, often claimed by Al Qaeda elements, flying over the US Embassy in Cairo on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.

Before making broad judgments, some foreign policy analysts urge Americans to consider myriad factors playing into the protests and violence, including localized grievances and power vacuums still unfilled after the US-backed “Arab Spring” uprisings last year. In fact, the US has come to believe that the Benghazi attack may have been partly a response to the drone-killing of a regional Al Qaeda leader with ties to Libya rather than to broader anti-Americanism.

“The current anti-American backlash in the region is the byproduct of genuine misunderstanding, real ignorance, and political jockeying among Islamic groups,” Abdeslam Maghraoui, a Duke University political scientist, tells the AP.

Yet some conservative commentators seized on the White House’s about-face on the genesis of the Benghazi attack as insight into a president unwilling to starkly assess American policy abroad, including what many conservatives see as an apologetic tone and outreach to groups like the Muslim Brotherhood.

Obama acknowledging that the 14-minute trailer to the film was not the root cause of the attack, writes the Washington Post’s Charles Krauthammer, is for a “staggered and confused” White House to “admit that its doctrinal premises were supremely na├»ve and its policies deeply corrosive to American influence.”

Some Americans are starting to ask similar questions in the wake of the consulate attack in Benghazi and continued anti-American protests in the region.

A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll taken before the White House confirmed Benghazi was a terror attack shows support for Obama’s foreign policy slipping by 5 percent since August, to below 50 percent, with 12 percent of independent voters withdrawing their support.

To be sure, the events in Benghazi are just now starting to emerge from the “fog of war” as an official State Department investigation is underway to determine the extent, and cause, of the security breach. But one growing perception in the Middle East is that the murder of Ambassador Stevens and three other embassy personnel may have been a revenge killing by a group known as Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb that has been exploiting the power vacuum in Libya.

While the White House may have been under pressure to say something concrete about the Benghazi attack before more details were known, the late acknowledgement of a terror attack suggests to some that the Obama administration has struggled to understand the dynamics of the tumult.

In the case of the Benghazi attack, “I think this is a case of an administration saying what they wished to be true before waiting for all the facts to come in,” a senior retired CIA official told the Daily Beast.

Former CIA Operative Edwin Wilson Dies at 84 : Good Riddance

All CIA scum need to be dead, along with anyone that works for them; Wilson burning now in his own little CIA corner of Hell along with the rest of all murdering, pedophile CIA killers and their masters, their property should be appropriated and sold at auction, proceeds going to their victims worldwide

Associated Press
09/23/2012

SEATTLE (AP) — 
 
Edwin Wilson set up front companies abroad for the CIA, made millions in the arms trade and entertained generals and congressmen at his sprawling Virginia farm.
 
 
DEATH to all CIA and the bagmen and women that work for them
His high-powered, jet-setting life in the 1970s and early 1980s followed a career in the CIA. But it came crashing down when he was branded a traitor and convicted in 1983 for shipping 20 tons of C-4 plastic explosives to Libya.

After two decades in prison, Wilson finally got the conviction overturned, convincing a judge that he had continued to work informally for the agency.

The man who once posed as a rich American businessman abroad spent his final years living with his brother near Seattle.

Wilson died Sept. 10 from complications from a heart valve replacement surgery, said Craig Emmick, a director at Columbia Funeral Home in Seattle. He was 84.

"Our family always supported him and believed in him," his nephew, Scott Wilson, said Saturday, adding that the biggest part of his uncle's vindication was "that the label of being a traitor would be taken off."

"He never considered himself a traitor, of course," Wilson added.

Wilson was born May 3, 1928, to a farming family in Nampa, Idaho. He worked as a merchant seaman, and earned a psychology degree from the University of Portland in 1953.

He joined the Marines and fought in the last days of the Korean War, according to his death notice. He went to work for the Central Intelligence Agency in 1955 after being discharged from the Marines.

Wilson entered the arms trade after leaving the CIA in 1971, according to a 2004 Washington Post article.

"I had a couple of villas that were very, very nice," he told the newspaper at the time. "I had Pakistani houseboys and I had Libyans working for me, typing up proposals in Arabic."

In 1982, he was lured out of hiding in Libya and brought to New York for arrest.

A federal court in Virginia convicted him of exporting firearms to Libya without permission and sentenced him to 10 years. He was convicted in Texas in 1983, receiving a 17-year sentence for similar crimes.

A New York court also sentenced him to 25 years, to run consecutively with the Texas and Virginia sentences, for attempted murder, criminal solicitation and other charges involving claims that Wilson conspired behind bars to have witnesses and prosecutors killed.

At trial, Wilson said he made the sales to ingratiate himself with the Libyan government at the CIA's request. While in prison, Wilson sought to prove his innocence by using the Freedom of Information Act to request government documents.

A federal judge threw out the conviction in 2003, saying the government had failed to correct information about Wilson's service to the CIA that it admitted internally was false.

Wilson was released in 2004. He filed a civil lawsuit against seven former federal prosecutors and a former executive director of the CIA, but a judge in Houston dismissed the case in 2007, according to Seattlepi.com.

"He wanted to try to hold the people accountable that helped put him into prison," his nephew said. "But he was never bitter."

GOOGLE ATTEMPTS TO SILENCE 5TH ESTATE

Google has just shown true colors regarding censorship, has attacked The 5th Estate website cutting bandwidth on Blogger to 1/4 previous length; numbers falling off a cliff:  Message from The 5th Estate to Google:  FUCK YOU:  YOU WILL NOT SILENCE US, WE CANNOT HURT YOU APPRECIABLY BUT WE WILL COST YOU MONEY - YOU HAVE JUST CREATED THE FIRST ANTI-GOOGLE WEBSITE

The 5th Estate
By Robert S. Finnegan and Imas Kurniawati

JAKARTA -

In their attempt to justify their release of the film "Innocence of Muslims,"  Google and its lackey You Tube have cited "censorship" as the reasoning behind it's refusal to remove the film clip that has ignited deadly riots across the Muslim world and resulted in over a hundred deaths to date, including the deaths of a U.S. Ambassador and his staff at Benghazi and dozens of innocent Muslim and non-Muslims.  Google and You Tube both new damn well what would happen when this "film" that violates it's own guidelines against hate speech was released.  This is premeditated murder, and The 5th Estate calls upon the U.S. Justice Department to immediately open a murder investigation targeting Google and You Tube, their Board of Directors and management for premeditated murder, murder and accessory after the fact.


Google, along with a growing list of individuals are responsible for these deaths.

Following the release of a report tying Google and You Tube to the CIA, Google, within hours, switched the blogger template of The 5th Estate and cut it's bandwidth by 3/4, resulting in a tripling of the load time for the website and a resulting drop in the numbers of readers who now have to wait at least 30 seconds for the site to load.  This is a bald-faced attempt to silence or intimidate us, and it will not be successful.  On the contrary, Google has just made enemies for life.  Vocal enemies, who buy their ink by the barrel.

The 5th Estate is now in the process of moving the site to a new, Google-independent provider.  We are also eliminating every account that is Google-related.

We WILL continue to publish, regardless.

We WILL continue to hammer Google and You Tube in perpetuity.

Google and You Tube WILL lose money from our news coverage, from this day forward.

And we WILL continue to call for the prosecution of Google and You Tube managers and board directors for PREMEDITATED MURDER of the U.S. Ambassador and his staff at Benghazi, Libya.

Stand the fuck by you bastards, WE WILL COOK YOU A STEW YOU WILL CHOKE ON.

Our apologies to readers for this inconvenience, we are diligently working on it now and will have the site transferred as soon as possible.

In the meantime, The 5th Estate urges readers and the international public to BOYCOTT GOOGLE AND YOU TUBE, pulling all advertising and accounts connected to these MURDERING BASTARDS.


 
“The Truth means responsibility, which is exactly why everyone dreads it.  If there is no way out, it is imperative to find a further way in.  Now more than ever in U.S. history, Americans are shielding their eyes against the painful truth…. As for The 5th Estate we are capable of knowing and willing to know the whole truth, to know the worst, accept it, and then ACT ON IT.”

Houston Murdering Cop Kills Double Amputee in Wheelchair

A double amputee.... a pen....; it's high time Americans rose up against these murdering, drug-addled corporate killers utilizing the Deadly Force laws in their respective States - there is only one things these animals understand and that is FORCE.  DEADLY FORCE:  Killer cops need to be identified, their photos, addresses and phone numbers posted on the net, their communities driving them out if the DA refuses to prosecute, then go after the DA and anyone else supporting these filthy, scumbag murderers; owners of "home" need to be prosecuted for murder along with the killer pig, business shut down

Associated Press
09/23/2012

HOUSTON (AP) — 
 
A Houston police officer shot and killed a one-armed, one-legged man in a wheelchair Saturday inside a group home after police say the double amputee threatened the officer and aggressively waved a metal object that turned out to be a pen.
 
 
Police spokeswoman Jodi Silva said the man cornered the officer in his wheelchair and was making threats while trying to stab the officer with the pen. At the time, the officer did not know what the metal object was that the man was waving, Silva said.

She said the man came "within inches to a foot" of the officer and did not follow instructions to calm down and remain still.

"Fearing for his partner's safety and his own safety, he discharged his weapon," Silva told The Associated Press.

Police did not immediately release the name of the man who was killed. They had been called to the home after a caretaker there called and reported that the man in wheelchair was causing a disturbance.
 
 
Killer pigs understand only one thing:  Deadly force
The owner of the group home, John Garcia, told the Houston Chronicle that the man had a history of mental illness and had been living at the house about 18 months. Garcia said the man had told him that he lost a leg above the knee and all of one arm when he was hit by a train.

"He sometimes would go off a bit, but you just ignore it," Garcia told the newspaper.

Silva identified the officer as Matthew Jacob Marin, a five-year veteran of the department. He was immediately placed on three-day administrative leave, which is standard in all shootings involving officers.
 
 
Murdering corporate lackey pigs now targeting American Seniors for terrorizing, beatings, gassing

Houston police records indicate that Marin also fatally shot a suspect in 2009. Investigators at the time said Marin came upon a man stabbing his neighbor to death at an apartment complex and opened fired when the suspect refused to drop the knife.
 
On Saturday, Marin and his partner arrived at the group home around 2:30 a.m. Silva said there were several people at the house at the time. The caretaker who called police waited on the porch while the officers went inside, she said.

"It was close quarters in the area of the house," Silva said. "The officer was forced into an area where he had no way to get out."
