The plan for world conquest, as laid out in their own “Project for a New American Century” in 1996, called for a Pearl Harbor-like event to excuse the invasion of Iraq, followed by the overthrow of the mullahs in Teheran and the Iranian oil fields. Now comes a conservative think-tank, claiming that the Bush administration has a secret plan for an “October Surprise” featuring an Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities, perhaps using a small nuclear weapon that can be blamed on the underground Persian weapons program that the United States claims exists, despite U.N. nuke inspectors denials.
The Iranian defense minister is aware of the plot, according to the think tankers, and has already announced that it will retaliate militarily if attacked. The United States has declared that we will defend Israel, the mullahs have replied that any American involvement will trigger an attack on coalition forces across the Euphrates in Iraq and any such attack would, obviously, trigger a full-scale war with Iran. With overwhelming force from the sky in the form of smart bombs, laser-guided rockets and munitions, followed up with helo and C-130-gunship attacks against military concentrations, the Iran war could break the record for short-time military engagements, set in 2003 in Baghdad.
The best part is we don’t have to move in and occupy the country, which will be flooded with refugees and crippled by the bomb destruction of infrastructure.
Imagine Iraq without any Halliburton/Bechtel re-construction program. According to the buzz inside our own beltway and in diplomatic circles around the globe, Bush is planning on an October surprise attack, creating a national security condition that triggers a provision of “Patriot I” postponing or canceling the November election at the order of the president, which may have been the plan from the front.
There are conspiracy theories every election year, usually after the fact, as in the Iranians releasing the hostages at the moment Ronald Reagan was sworn in, and George H.W. Bush’s secret flight to Paris to cut the deal, but this time we get a preview of coming attractions, not that it matters a whole lot.
Forewarned is only forearmed if anyone pays attention to the warnings.
