The 2008 US presidential dance has already been decided: the
winner will be a corrupt elite
warmonger who will intensify and expand Bush-Cheney�s criminal �war on
terrorism� into Iran and beyond, and with the full support of an acquiescent US
populace. The latest rhetoric from Bush, and the candidates, spells this out in
black and white.
�First Afghanistan, then Iraq, then Iran�
Covert destabilization and increasing military escalation
towards a full-scale Iran attack have been underway
for months. In recent weeks, the bellicose, cocky and certifiably insane George
W. Bush named Iran as the "world's leading
supporter of terrorism." His administration is openly constructing an
attack plan against Tehran.
As astutely noted by Patrick Buchanan in "Phase III
of Bush's War," �those who hoped that . . . America was headed out of
Iraq got a rude awakening. They are about to get another.� Remarking on the
�astonishing� rhetoric from a Bush who is �brimming with self-assurance,"
Buchanan notes, �Confident of victory this fall on The Hill, Bush is now moving
into Phase III in his 'War on Terror': First, Afghanistan, then Iraq, then Iran
. . ." and that �U.S. forces may already be engaged in combat
operations against Iranians. Who or what can stop this drive to war? . . . What
is to prevent Bush from attacking Iran and widening the war, sooner than we
think? Nothing and no one.�
The virtual certainty of an attack on Iran, and the absence
of any resistance to such a war, is echoed by the analysis of former CIA analysts
Kathleen and Bill Christison, and many other observers.
The only remaining debate is if an attack will take place
during Bush-Cheney�s final months in power, or after, led by their successors.
In fact, the successors seem even more eager to do Bush-Cheney one better by
fighting the �real war on terrorism� that was, according to the now infamous
deception, �squandered� by the mismanagement of the occupation of Iraq.
Presidential candidates fight for place at
Iran/war feeding trough
From the start, candidates from both Democratic and
Republican factions have fallen over themselves, and each other, to proclaim
on terrorism and security" credentials, and their eagerness to
�confront Tehran." From Mitt Romney, Rudy
Guiliani (thoroughly exposed as a 9/11 insider in Mike Ruppert�s Crossing The
Rubicon and here) and just
announced candidate Fred Thompson, to the slippery Democrats, the war rhetoric
is the same.
The Democrats have been particularly hawkish in recent

Bipartisan �war on terrorism� consensus
With increasing frequency, the myriad of Iran �terrorism�
red herrings and lies have been irrevocably fused on to the larger 9/11 �war on
terrorism� deception that has justified every criminal activity since 2001. The
wealth of these deceptions has been detailed by Scott Ritter, author of the
book Target: Iran, who has
tracked the impending Iran war for years. The same template that led to the
attack and occupation of Iraq is being applied to Iran.
As this writer previously noted in "Washington's
consensus Al-Qaeda deception": �The �war on terrorism� is a foreign
policy weapon favored by an elite and ironclad Anglo-American consensus,
supported equally by Washington�s political factions. The surge of "Al-Qaeda"
covert operations and "terrorism" propaganda over the past
three weeks, and reports of �renewed Al-Qaeda power," marks the beginning
of intensified false flag deception . . .
�Neocons, neoliberals, and �antiwar progressives� continue
to enthusiastically embrace and reinforce the myth of the �ever-more powerful,
ever-more cunning outside �terrorist� threat to America� -- and will continue
to do so ad nauseum, as they have for nearly six years since 9/11. Meanwhile,
the long-standing and enduring relationship between Islamic 'terrorists,'
'Al-Qaeda,' Osama bin Laden, etc. and Anglo-American and US-allied intelligence
agencies (CIA, FBI, MI-6, Pakistani ISI, Mossad, etc.) and their ongoing
use and manipulation of these 'terrorist' groups on behalf of
Anglo-Anerican geostrategy remains completely ignored, and the focus of ongoing
cover-up, media silence and academic obfuscation . . .
� . . . Slippery variations on the �war on terrorism� theme
include (but are not limited to) the following:
Bush administration has failed to fight the �real war on terrorism� begun
and blunders of the war in Iraq have created radical jihadist insurgencies
that wish to destroy the United States.
Iraq mistake has distracted us from fighting the �real� war on terrorism.
should declare war on Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, which harbor the real
�terrorists� who attacked us on 9/11.
Iraq distraction has prevented us from capturing Osama.
world was united after 9/11, but Bush squandered it all�
�As pointed out by Michel Chossudovsky, the �Al-Qaeda�
deception is central
to Anglo-American foreign policy, which rests squarely on the perpetual
threat of a fabricated outside enemy, and fear of a "new
9/11." This deception provides the ongoing pretext used to justify
endless warfare and endless criminality.�
The presidential candidates have continued to feast on
�Al-Qaeda� propaganda meat, and its most recent incarnation, the
�Iran-as-leading-terrorist-nation� rhetoric now being spearheaded by Bush
It goes without saying that a Hillary Clinton presidency
the Bush-Cheney agenda, and return Anglo-American criminality to its 1990s
glory. Not surprisingly, Hillary Clinton�s advisors include legendary war
criminals Madeline Albright, Sandy Berger, Richard Holbrooke, Strobe Talbott
and, of course, Bill Clinton himself. The �Al-Qaeda� war politics blossomed
during the Bill Clinton administration with the use of Al-Qaeda/militant
Islamic mercenaries in Kosovo and Bosnia, and what is arguably the true start
of today�s �war on terror� -- the identification of Osama bin Laden as �enemy
number one� in 1998, followed by the bombing of Sudan. The cooperative role
that the deeply corrupt Clinton faction played alongside the Bush �crime
family," in virtually all of the major US government crimes from the 1980s
to the present, can fill several libraries.
Other former Clinton security hands, such as former National
Security Advisor Anthony Lake and former Assistant Secretary of State Susan
Rice can be found in the Obama camp.
Despite his inexplicable popularity among liberals and
�progressives� who are easily fooled by his smooth style and projections
inspired by his dark complexion, Obama�s foreign policy agenda is identical
to that of the Bush administration, including his approach to the �war on
terrorism." Obama virtually promises to be a worldwide mass murderer,
justifying his crimes with "blowback"
deceptions. Like other members of Congress, Obama has access to classified
material. He and others are complicit in hiding the fact of Anglo-American
intelligence connections behind both the �terrorism� and the �insurgencies� . .
John Edwards, desperate to gain ground on the clear
front-runner, recently blasted Clinton as the candidate of a process �rigged by
the elites." This deceptive rhetoric hides the fact that Edwards himself
is an elite, supported by Jimmy Carter, and backed by equally powerful and
unsavory financial and political interests. Edwards has never stopped
proclaiming his intention, should be become president (or vice president) to
The election is, of course, rigged, but not in the red
herring manner that Edwards suggests. All modern US elections have been rigged,
as grotesquely evidenced by the open theft of every election since 2000, and
the still-unaddressed electronic control and scripting of the entire voting
The elite forces in control of the rigging of the world
political power are amply documented. According to investigative journalists
such as Daniel Estulin, author of a soon-to-be released book on Bilderberg, the
leading US presidential candidates (who stand any realistic chance of being
selected) share extensive Bilderberger connections, including the Clintons
(members of long standing), and Edwards.
With the exception of Democrats Dennis Kucinich and Mike
Gravel, Republican Ron Paul (all of whom continue to be routinely shut out by
the political establishment, and dismissed by their own party apparatuses), and
even more marginal names, the war and �anti-terror� platforms of the leading
candidates are malodorously pure fascism, straight out of the Bush-Cheney�s
What is clear is that the next US president will not only
continue but also expand the �war on terrorism� and the �war against radical
extremists� into Iran, and beyond. If Bush-Cheney engineer a �next 9/11,"
crushing political and popular resistance, the war will come even sooner. Both
Republican and Democratic Party factions are hell-bent on pushing the same
post-Peak Oil geostrategic control agenda, the same false flag terror, and the
an empire and its survival at stake, the most �unthinkable," apocalyptic
and criminal options are �on the table." And the table is getting smaller.
