Peres doesn’t have a monopoly when it comes to spouting out drivel. However, when he says that Iran threatens “Berlin, Madrid, Delhi and Bangkok”, we really should raise our eyebrows. Is the message here that should Israel attack Iran it will also be helping to protect Germany, Spain, India and Thailand? Oh thank you Mr Peres, thank you, thank you, thank you!
Nevertheless, despite the poppycock, if the implications of yesterday’s post were that Israel, and not the US, will make the decision to attack Iran, it is worth asking ourselves the question, what can the Zionist state’s ultimate aims be? For the absurdity that they will go to war to protect other states from some fictive Iranian threat can only have us laughing our heads off. However, even if we come to the conclusion that total regional hegemony, and the realisation of their mystical “Eretz Israel”, can be their only goals, we might still deduce that the United States, and its allies (Israel is, of course, in every sense of the word, a liability) stand to gain at least as much from an attack on Iran. Or to be more precise a war economy that is financed by Wall Street, and which stands as the creditor of the US administration, US, Israeli and British, weapons producers and the Anglo-American oil giants will be the real winners.
Moreover at a time when, the Chinese are beginning to focus increasingly on Middle Eastern and African waters in order to protect the economic arteries, 85% of China’s oil supplies passes through the Indian Ocean, on which it is becoming increasingly dependent, there will be many in Wall Street and at the Pentagon who will be happy to see Israel attack while China’s naval build up in the Indian Ocean is still in its infancy.
Unfortunately, the reality that this would potentially unleash a global war is not being conveyed to a public whose exposure to any potential war on Iran is degraded to being just another item in the no news. The news of Peres referring to the regime in Teheran as “an affront to human dignity“, and Israel really has respected Palestinians’ human dignity, the news of British Foreign Secretary, William Hague, saying that Iran’s nuclear programme risks plunging the world into “a new cold war“ , and never mind Israel’s nuclear weapons, the news of Obama saying that he won’t hesitate to “using force to stop Iran obtaining nuclear weapons”, but wait a minute, does that mean the United States will use a nuclear weapon to stop Iran obtaining them?
The coming war against iran will not be to protect human dignity, it will not be to avoid a new cold war and it will not even be to stop Iran obtaining nuclear weapons. It will be in part to realise Zionist hegemony in the Middle East, but first and foremost it will be the next step in securing the world’s oil supplies for a lot of greedy bastards. And the step after that? ….. Well, we are already reading about mass demonstrations in Russia, repression in Tibet and Xinjiang, ……. Iran, Syria and Lebanon are the immediate targets, China, Russia, North Korea, not to mention Venezuela and Cuba, are next on the agenda. Well, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, yes, no problem there, mickey mouse stuff, and even Russia, a bit more difficult but not impossible, but China …………?
