Iran leader warns against attack

Tuesday, 22 September 2009 12:52 UK

The military parade is held every year Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has warned that it would retaliate against any possible military strike.

[Richard Sauder's emails and conversation at the Frontier Restaurant elaborates on the above. We are thinking about posting Sauder's emails.]

The president of Russia says that an Israeli attack on Iran (sometime on or after October 25th in the predictive linguistics) would be the worst thing imaginable but that Israel says it won't do it.

Whitman college inviting ambassador Ryan Crocker to deliver the 2009 commencment address may have not have been too bright in view that Crocker likely helped start the Iraq/Iran war - along with Brzezinski, of course.

We now try to get our money back through NCUA.

If we get our money back, then NCUA will likely go for Jillson to gets its money back through the New Mexico criminal system.

But this is not our problem. Our problem is getting our money back.

If NCUA does not pay, then we can file an insurance fraud claim with the state.

Let's all hope for peaceful settlement before matters get worse.

And it is a long war. It started for me, not on 9/11 and in its aftermath, but in Beirut, more than a quarter of a century ago, when the Embassy and Marine barracks were bombed. ...

President Bridges made a comment to me last night about you as a graduating class: 'You know as you graduate, that you don't have all the answers, but you've learned here how to question.' ...

It is a reminder that in life, you get what is just, often, only if you are ready to fight for it. ...

Some good news for a change...although just how good we don't know. It started with a strange and very short phone call from an unidentified source in Europe who said he was with an agency that is in a place to know what's going on with the advance planning for the possible attack on Iran by Israel. The caller informed us that because the ALTA/Shape of Things to Come reports run 'above chance' in their outcomes, and since some .mil types read them as soon as release, the folks in attack contingency planning have gone into much deeper target backgrounding than usual on secondary and tertiary targets. That was it. A very short phone call and the caller hung up - no other details. A foreign country code and a 'no such number' beyond that.

Whether the call is 'legit', or not, we certainly hope it is and that advance planning does turn up the 'risk' in a tertiary target which was outlined for the apparent October 25th (+/- a few days) attack date.

Wednesday July 29, 2009 07:55 AM CDT

A reader did ask an interesting question about the Monday phone call we got vis-à-vis the Iran attack in October. He asked - in so many words - "Is it possible that in sounding the alarm about the dangers of the tertiary target risks that the project might cause the events foreseen?"

That's one of those nightmares that keeps us awake nights. We know from past experience that when something about the future is widely reported (as we have done in the past) it often changes slightly in modelspace...so since the data 'pipe' is going to stay open, we may get some early indications maybe next week or the week after. I'll keep you posted, of course.

We cannot over emphasize the importance of visibility in legal actions.

Reason is that the legal system will do anything it wants to you if it knows no one is looking.

That includes stealing your money or sending you to prison.

New Mexico CIV 97-266 MCA/LFG worked beyond our expectations.

We did not know at the time that lawsuit [now NSA\NOJEH] was filed that the Carter administration, though Brzezinski, incited Saddman Hussein to attack Iran. That's against the law.

Dear Mr Reed;

Thanks for answering my questions at your and Mr Stillman's book signing on February 3, 2009 at Page One in Albuquerque.

I recorded my questions and your and Mr Stillman's responses.
1 Was there a thermonuclear detonation in South Africa?
2 What about Iran?

Iran, like the US, may be facing electric shortages soon.
Thu Oct 02 01:00:00 CDT 2008 A new study released this week highlights what experts have been saying for years: the U.S. faces significant risk of power brownouts and blackouts as early as next summer that may cost tens of billions of dollars and threaten lives.

The study, "Lights Out In 2009?" warns that the U.S. "faces potentially crippling electricity brownouts and blackouts beginning in the summer of 2009, which may cost tens of billions of dollars and threaten lives." ...

Perhaps you may wish to rethink your position denying Iran nuclear electric generation plants?

Your comments on the LaBelle disco bombing attracted my attention.

Reason is that we used how Libya figured-out the US was reading it encrypted communications as a visibility ploy is our, so far, 17 year legal project.

Here's a link to our visibility ploy: the Nojeh/NSA lawsuit CIV 97-266 MCA/LFG.

As a result of your and Mr Stillman's abilities, expertise and interests



we have a favor to ask to possibly help get these unfortunate matters settled peacefully.

Mr Zoubin emailed
Sunday, January 07, 2001 5:52 PM

Dear Friend, we saw some of these documents http://www.geocities.com/CapitolHill/Congress/8327/buehlerpayne.html but we would like your commentary about what happened and all circumstances so we can post it on our website but as well as a report to the mailing lists.

With thanks

On behalf of SMCCDI
A. Zoubin ( Information Committee)
http://www.iran-daneshjoo.org/

While we were able to post lower level information on "your commentary about what happened and all circumstances," we were unaware of the bigger picture until the summer of 2007.

We suggested to our Persian friends that we try legal remedy to attempt to peacefully resolve matters.

The below paragraph was posted at Wikipedia.

Nojeh Coup

In July 1980, Zbigniew Brzezinski LINK of the United States met Jordan's King Hussein [LINK] in Amman to discuss detailed plans for Saddam Hussein to sponsor a coup in Iran against Khomeini. King Hussein was Saddam's closest confidant in the Arab world, and served as an intermediary during the planning. The Iraqi invasion of Iran would be launched under the pretext of a call for aid from Iranian loyalist officers plotting their own uprising on July 9, 1980 (codenamed Nojeh, after Shahrokhi/Nojeh air base in Hamedan). The Iranian officers were organized by Shapour Bakhtiar LINK, who had fled to France when Khomeini seized power, but was operating from Baghdad and Sulimaniyah at the time of Brzezinski's meeting with Hussein. However, Khomeini LINK learned of the Nojeh Coup plan from Soviet agents in France and Latin America. Shortly after Brzezinski's meeting with Hussein, the President of Iran, Abolhassan Bani-Sadr LINK quietly rounded up 600 of the loyalist plotters within Iran, putting an effective end to the Nojeh Coup.[5] Saddam decided to invade without the Iranian officers' assistance, beginning the Iran-Iraq war on 22 September 1980.

This one of two posted which were quickly removed from Wikipedia.

Iran intelligence is likely source of both posts we discovered from google searches.

We realized that Brzezinski may have committed a crime.

So we moved to void judgment in Nojeh/NSA lawsuit CIV 97-266 MCA/LFG since we have a official action before a federal court.

We filed an official criminal complaint affidavit under Rule 3 of the Rules of Criminal against Brzezinski for genocide notarized on June 6, 2007.

Here is brief history.
A short and deadly history of how we got to where we are

June 6, 2007 official genocide criminal complaint affidavit against Zbigniew Brzezinski is included in FILED AUG 01 2008 MOTION TO VOID AND AMEND JUDGMENTS IN ORDER ADOPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S FINDINGS AND RECOMMEND DISPOSITION MAILED JULY 14, 2008.

This means that the June 6, 2007 genocide criminal complaint affidavit is before a federal court with proper venue [CIV 97-266 MCA/LFG].

The June 6, 2007 genocide criminal complaint affidavit should be properly investigated and disposed of by issuance of Arrest Warrant or Summons on Complaint as prescribed under Rule 4 Title 18, Rules of Criminal Procedure if the laws of our country are followed.

Federal judges Armijo, Garcia, and Vazquez, instead of seeing that the criminal complaint is properly processed, attacked us and help steal $22,036.00 from our Sandia Laboratory Federal Credit Union retirement-protected savings accounts.

Judge Vazquez threatened me with prison and denied me civil rights to file to void judgment for reason of lack of subject matter jurisdiction.

Our money was stolen using a bogus court order with no FILED stamp so we are in the process of filing fraud loss claims with National Credit Union Administration to get our saving money back. NCUA fraud loss claim progress is posted at http://www.prosefights.org/nmlegal/ncualove/ncualove.htm#director.

Legal course of legal action to counter these illegal acts by judges and lawyers, we were advised, was to contact the commanding officer of the nearest military base authorized by

Title 18 § 4.

Misprision of felony Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

This is Kirland AFB.

We filed a formal complaint under Title 18 § 4 with Col. Terrence A. Feehan, Commander Nuclear Weapons Center on Tuesday July 24, 2007 14:02.

Response



was to return our Title 18 § 4 complaint to those complained against.

We then filed a complaint with Feehan's and Taylor's commanding officer, General Terry Walter Grabeski.

Grabeski's and/or her office staff, which includes Major Tanya Kubinec, response is to return the complaint.
Label/Receipt Number: 7007 0220 0002 8428 0628
Status: Delivered
Your item was delivered at 8:02 AM on October 29, 2007 in DAYTON, OH 45433.





Grabeski's office staff, perhaps on order from General Gabreski, appear to have violated their oath of officer.

The genocide criminal complaint affidavit against Zbigniew Brzezinski was filed June 6, 2007. Air Force lawyer Lt. Col. Tishlyn Taylor's letter is dated 11 Sep 07 which indicates that Feehan and Taylor attempted to cover-up a properly served criminal complaint.

Since this matter now involved felony theft from our $22,036.00 retirement-protected savings accounts by Sandia Laboratory Federal Credit Union CEO Christopher Jillson and felony genocide criminal complaint affidavit, we would like to explore the mechanics of filing formal charges against Cols Feehan, Taylor and Major Kubinec with the Air Force.

Perhaps General Grabeski too if she ordered her staff not to accept proper criminal complaint.

Legal procedures established to address corruption in the judiciary and establishment. But these procedures do not appear to be working as a result of officers Feehan, Taylor, Kubinec and, perhaps, General Grabeski.

Damage done by Brzezinski's alleged crime documented in The Nuclear Express on pages 297 and 298 may be difficult to repair.



Robert Parry article Lost History Hurts Obama's Iran Bid was posted several websites on March 26 and 27, 2009 stated
The Iran-Iraq War started on Sept. 22, 1980, during a bitter standoff between the United States and Iran over Iran’s holding of 52 U.S. hostages, a crisis that doomed Carter’s re-election hopes.

At the time of the Iraq invasion, President Carter termed Iranian charges of U.S. complicity "patently false." In his memoir, Keeping Faith, he mentioned the Iranian allegation only obliquely in the context of mentioning the start of the war, writing: “Typically, the Iranians accused me of planning and supporting the invasion."

The ‘Green Light’

The issue of Carter’s alleged “green light” resurfaced on March 21 as Khamenei reacted to Obama’s message a day earlier. In a speech in Mashhad, Iran, Khamenei ticked off a list of Iranian complaints about U.S. policy since the Islamic revolution toppled the American-backed Shah of Iran in February 1979.

“Since the very beginning, the U.S. government has treated our revolution angrily and their tone has always been aggressive,” Khamenei said, according to a translation at his Web site. “The U.S. government - both Republican and Democratic presidents - treated the Islamic Republic unfairly.”

Khamenei traced the origins of this hostility to the Carter administration and its alleged encouragement of the Iraq invasion. ...

“They gave Saddam the green light to attack our country,” Khamenei said. “If Saddam had not received the green light from the U.S., most probably he would not have attacked our borders. An eight-year war was imposed on our country, during which about 300,000 Iranian civilians and youth were martyred.”

Brzezinski appears to have given more than a "green light" and may have committed a felony crime.

The Jerusalem Post on February 25-6, 2009 posted
Binyamin Netanyahu has just become prime minister of Israel. He is determined to take action before - not after - Iran achieves its nuclear potential. This creates a volatile, hair-trigger situation that could explode at any moment.

Events reported above point to increasing dangerous times.

Failure of Air Force officers Feehan, Taylor, Kubinec and, perhaps, General Grabeski to do their jobs is making matters worse.

If Brzezinski is guilty of genocide and avoids prosecution and punishment as a result of an inane government cover-up, this may not sit well with many people around the world.

Lawyer attempts to cover-up will not work for the reason others have done their investigations of these unfortunate matters and reached their conclusions.

Concurrence by all parties on what happened in these unfortunate matters is important to peaceful resolution, I believe.

Your educational background and experience as 11th secretary of the Air Force makes me ask that you advise us how to get the Air Force to do its job to help get these unfortunate matters peacefully settled.

I ask that you respond by May 7, 2009.

Thank you.

Bill Payne

MSM/corp gov keeps messing with Iran and us.

To understand the hatred of the United States in Iran, we have to go further back than 1979 -- to 1953, when Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh had the gall to care more about his country than what the British and the United States wanted.

The two superpowers were angry that he nationalized oil interests -- at the time Anglo-Iranian Oil, now known as British Petroleum, was receiving 93 percent of oil proceeds and the Iranians were getting 7 percent.

http://www.prosefights.org/nmlegal/vazquez/vazquez.htm#mossadegh

Time to settle before matters get lots worse.


The Iranian Elections and the Price of Oil comment.

Bomb Iran nuclear electric generation facilities?
American bombing in the Gulf War knocked out 60 % of Iraq's generation capacity, Mustafa said. Iraqi workers, overseen by Mustafa, quickly rebuilt the downed stack and painted it with the Iraqi flag. But the plant -- and Iraq's ability to generate electricity -- never fully recovered.


U.S. bombing of Iraq electric power generation facilities links have been largely wiped off the web.

Except for: - and the above
Case in point. Article 54 of the Geneva Conventions clearly states that destroying or rendering useless items essential to the survival of civilian populations is illegal under international law and a war crime. Hard then to explain the 1991 US bombing of electrical grids that powered 1,410 water-treatment plants for Iraq's 22 million people. An excerpt from a 1998 US Air Force document, entitled "Strategic Attack," chillingly explains: "The electrical attacks proved extremely effective ... The loss of electricity shut down the capital's water treatment plants and led to a public health crisis from raw sewage dumped in the Tigris River." A second US Defense Intelligence Agency document, 1991's "Iraq Water Treatment Vulnerabilities," predicted how sanctions would then be used to prevent Iraq from getting the equipment and chemicals necessary for water purification, which would result in "a shortage of pure drinking water for much of the population" leading to "increased incidences, if not epidemics, of disease



It's not true: there was no substantial lack of power in Saddam's Iraq. Nowadays production is around 3,100MW, which covers less than half of the country's needs. It may be argued whether American bombing spared Iraq's infrastructure this time, but the fact is that high-tension lines south of Baghdad were hit by bombing. At the end of April, the lucrative contract for reconstruction and renovation of Iraq's electricity grid was awarded to the Bush-connected Bechtel Corporation. But nothing has happened so far.

Baghdad South's power plant was conceived to generate 350MW. Slightly before Saddam's fall it hardly generated 200. Today it generates not more than 165MW. Some high-tension lines have been attacked by the so-called Ali Baba - who can be regarded as anything between authentic Iraqi resistance or Kalashnikov-equipped bandits in search of copper to be resold in the black market. The fact remains that the Americans simply cannot patrol all of Iraq's 17,000 kilometers of high-tension lines. US estimates are that three years are necessary to restore the electricity grid. Kharabba, not jihad, may be the US's nemesis in Iraq.


For many, the lack of kharabba [electricity] is much more important than ...


Al-Shimari said the electricity shortages now were the worst since the summer of 2003, shortly after the U.S.-led invasion to topple Saddam.


To combat a forecast net shortage of electricity, Turkey has decided to integrate a region close to Iran into the Iranian national electric grid and buy electricity directly from the neighboring country.

According to Ministry of Energy of Iran, Mr. Fattah, in the meeting with his visiting Qatari Energy Minister, referred to country's electrical connection to its all land border neighbors and said The electrical grid of Iraq, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Armenia are currently connected.

Parviz Fattah pointed that the electrical connection between Iran, Russia, Syria, and Emirate is on the way.

Larry Everest, a correspondent for the Revolutionary Worker, writing in Z magazine reported that in June 1980, students in Iran revealed a 1980 memorandum from U.S. National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski to Secretary of State Cyrus Vance recommending the "destabilization" of the Iranian government by using Iran's neighbors.

The U.S. has denied that it gave Iraq a "green light" for its September 22, 1980 invasion of Iran. Five months before Iraq's invasion, on April 14, 1980, Zbigniew Brzezinski, signaled the U.S.'s willingness to work with Iraq: "We see no fundamental incompatibility of interests between the United States and Iraq... we do not feel that American-Iraqi relations need to be frozen in antagonisms." According to Iran's president at the time, Abolhassan Banisadr, Brzezinski met directly with Saddam Hussein in Jordan two months before the Iraqi assault. Bani-Sadr wrote, "Brzezinski had assured Saddam Hussein that the United States would not oppose the separation of Khuzestan [in southwest Iran] from Iran."[6]

Bomb Iran nuclear electricity facilities?
August, 1941: The United States, which at the time supplied 80% of Japanese oil imports, initiates a complete oil embargo. This threatens to cripple both the Japanese economy and military strength once the strategic reserves run dry, unless alternative oil-sources can be found.


While Obama's call for opening dialog with the Islamic world might seem a reasonable thing, it's a bit late with "Iran's Khamenei saying the US is 'deeply hated' in Mideast." I mean, doesn't anyone appreciate that it is US Manifest Destiny to conquer all lands, liberate all people, and take what resources we want, whether labor or liquid? I mean really...we got us a paradigm to defend here!


"The new US government seeks to transform this image. I say firmly, that this will not be achieved by talking, speech and slogans.

"They have done things that have deeply hurt the nations in the region... action is needed and one can not remove this deep hatred by words, speeches and slogans."

Khamenei was speaking to thousands of Iranians and several foreigners at the mausoleum on the southern outskirts of Tehran to mark Khomeini's death anniversary.

SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras – In a new overture to Iran, the Obama administration has authorized U.S. embassies around the world to invite Iranian officials to Independence Day parties they host on or around July 4th.
updated 1 hour, 46 minutes ago

JERUSALEM (CNN) -- Israel started its biggest emergency drill in the nation's history Sunday to prepare civilians, soldiers and rescue crews for the possibility of war, the defense force said in a statement.

[Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak has expressed skepticism that Iran can be persuaded to abandon its nuclear ambitions.]

The five-day drill, nicknamed Turning Point 3, comes amid the nation's rising tensions with Iran.


Ahvaz is in the oil-rich Khuzestan province, which has a sizable Arab population.

The Arabs have long complained that while the region provides a great deal of oil, it sees little of the money. They want greater representation in the central government and the regime to pay more attention to their needs.


From Abadan we drove north to Khorramshahr which like Abadan is a stone’s throw across the Shatt al-Arab from Iraq. It was virtually levelled during the Iran/Iraq war. Burnt out tanks litter the sides of the road, deliberately left as a reminder. Behind them, tall stands of sugar cane - not an indigenous plant in these parts - is now grown extensively on the flat, once-saline plain.


The Iran-Iraq war

Being on the border with Iraq, Khuzestan suffered the heaviest damage of all Iranian provinces during the Iran-Iraq war (1980 - 1988).

What used to be Iran's largest refinery at Abadan was destroyed, never to fully recover. Many of the famous nakhlestans (palm groves) were annihilated, cities were destroyed, historical sites were demolished, and nearly half the province went under the boots of Saddam's invading army [17]. This created a mass exodus into other provinces that did not have the logistical capability of taking in such a large number of refugees.

However, by 1982, Iranian forces managed to push Saddam's forces back into Iraq. The battle of "the Liberation of Khorramshahr" (one of Khuzestan's largest cities and the most important Iranian port prior to the war) was a turning point in the war, and is officially celebrated every year in Iran.

Israeli officials say they could face a nuclear-armed Iran less than a year after the Iranian government makes a political decision to build such a weapon. The prospect has prompted Israeli military planners to consider options for preemptively attacking Iran's nuclear facilities.

Iran denies seeking nuclear weapons but has shrugged off U.S.-led diplomatic pressure aimed at curbing its uranium enrichment, a process with bomb-making potential.

Israeli leaders say they will never accept a nuclear-armed Iran and have suggested they might take military action to prevent that happening.

He, like the entire Israeli leadership, argues that since Iran sponsors Hezbollah in southern Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza, both of which reject Israel’s existence and seek its destruction, the key to the Palestinian solution is to defang Iran and stop it from acquiring the means to build a nuclear weapon. Increasingly, the Arab world — especially Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan — seems worried about Iran as well. American officials who have recently visited those countries said that their leaders spoke about Iran in ways that were almost identical to what they heard from officials in Jerusalem. Therefore, the opportunity for a regional alliance against Iranian influence is great.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday she hopes Iranian calls for a reexamination of the spy case against Iranian-American journalist Roxana Saberi will lead to her speedy release. Both Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the country's judiciary chief have stressed the need for a fair appeal for the detained reporter.

"She told her family that she was initially held for buying a bottle of wine. A spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry said later that Saberi was being detained at Tehran's Evin Prison for reporting without proper accreditation," the committee said on its Web site.

Israel wants to know that if its forces were given the green light they could strike at Iran in a matter of days, even hours. They are making preparations on every level for this eventuality. The message to Iran is that the threat is not just words,” one senior defence official told The Times.

Watching the drama unfold inside Israel, the increasingly tense dialogue between US President Barack Obama and new Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is taking on all the trappings of a duel.


Posted 2009/06/16

US Defense Secretary Robert Gates has cautioned Israel against launching a military attack on Iran to halt its nuclear program.

Gates who was speaking to a group of Marine Corps students in Washington said that any Israeli attack on Iran will have dangerous consequences, The Los Angeles Times reported on Thursday.


However, moving beyond the issue of enrichment helps Obama inch closer toward engagement with Iran, something he promised during the campaign and has begun to undertake with small, albeit significant, steps, most noticeably his New Year's message to the Iranian people.

[97 CV 266]

The proposals, exchanged in confidential strategy sessions with European allies, would press Tehran to open up its nuclear program gradually to wide-ranging inspection. But the proposals would also allow Iran to continue enriching uranium for some period during the talks. That would be a sharp break from the approach taken by the Bush administration, which had demanded that Iran halt its enrichment activities, at least briefly to initiate negotiations.

We wonder if something similar to below could have happened to the fuzing systems of nuclear weapons too?

Stored at KUMSEC?

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Computer hackers have embedded software in the United States' electricity grid and other infrastructure that could potentially disrupt service or damage equipment, two former federal officials told CNN.

The code in the power grid was discovered in 2006 or 2007, according to one of the officials, who called it "the 21st century version of Cold War spying."

The 118-count indictment charges Li Fang Wei, 37, and his China-based company LIMMT, identified years ago as fronts for Iran's illegal nuclear acquisition efforts, with falsifying business records and conspiracy to gain access to U.S. banks.

Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau said Li's deception caused six New York banks to allow him and his company to continue banking in U.S. dollars - and to continue selling banned weapons material to the Iranian military.

We may be forced to attack Iran

The primary imperative for the United States and President Barack Obama is to put an end to Iran's nuclear race, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said before his swearing-in Tuesday, adding that if the US failed to do so Israel might be forced to resort to a military strike on the Islamic Republic's nuclear installations.

The Iran-Iraq War started on Sept. 22, 1980, during a bitter standoff between the United States and Iran over Iran’s holding of 52 U.S. hostages, a crisis that doomed Carter’s re-election hopes.

At the time of the Iraq invasion, President Carter termed Iranian charges of U.S. complicity "patently false." In his memoir, Keeping Faith, he mentioned the Iranian allegation only obliquely in the context of mentioning the start of the war, writing: “Typically, the Iranians accused me of planning and supporting the invasion."

The ‘Green Light’

The issue of Carter’s alleged “green light” resurfaced on March 21 as Khamenei reacted to Obama’s message a day earlier. In a speech in Mashhad, Iran, Khamenei ticked off a list of Iranian complaints about U.S. policy since the Islamic revolution toppled the American-backed Shah of Iran in February 1979.

“Since the very beginning, the U.S. government has treated our revolution angrily and their tone has always been aggressive,” Khamenei said, according to a translation at his Web site. “The U.S. government - both Republican and Democratic presidents - treated the Islamic Republic unfairly.”

Khamenei traced the origins of this hostility to the Carter administration and its alleged encouragement of the Iraq invasion. ...

“They gave Saddam the green light to attack our country,” Khamenei said. “If Saddam had not received the green light from the U.S., most probably he would not have attacked our borders. An eight-year war was imposed on our country, during which about 300,000 Iranian civilians and youth were martyred.”

Khamenei also addressed another element of America’s “lost history” from that era, the so-called “Iraqgate” scandal in which the Reagan administration secretly assisted Saddam Hussein’s army as it held off the numerically superior Iranian forces.

Iran-Sudan-Hamas chain exposed

The latest reports of an alleged IAF strike on a Hamas arms convoy in Sudan draw attention to an arms network running from Iran, via the Persian Gulf and Yemen to Sudan, Egypt, and Hamas-ruled Gaza. The existence of this network has been noted by analysts in the past. It forms part of a larger, overt, close relationship maintained by both Iran and Hamas with the regime of Omar al-Bashir in Khartoum.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has demanded Washington apologize for decades of "crimes" against Iran.


Khamenei helped guide the country during the Iraq-Iran War in the 1980s, and developed close ties with the now-powerful Revolutionary Guards. As president, he had a reputation of being deeply interested in the military, budget and administrative details.[10]

He was re-elected to a second term in 1985, capturing 85.66% of total votes.[18]

Khamenei ranked No. 7 on Parade Magazine's 2009 World's Worst Dictators list,[19] behind Hu Jintao (China) and ahead of Muammar al-Qaddafi (Libya).

After three decades of a freeze in American-Iranian relations, it appeared significant that Obama directed his comments not just to the Iranian people but to Iran's leaders, and that he referred to Iran as "the Islamic Republic," indicating an apparent willingness to deal with the current clerical government.

An advisor to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Washington must reverse its support for Israel and end sanctions against Iran.

The advisor, Ali Akbar Javanfekr, also said the US had to apologise to Iran for its past actions.

Mr Obama's offer came in a video address to mark the Iranian New Year.

In the address, Mr Obama said he was seeking engagement with Iran that was "honest and based on mutual respect".

"My administration is now committed to diplomacy that addresses the full range of issues before us," Mr Obama said.

"There is no problem with Russia in terms of diplomacy and relations and there is no justification for any delay," he said, adding that "If there appears any change in Russia's stand to this effect, Iran will take very clear position in dealing with it."

MSM flaunts the absurd

Plans for deploying U.S. missile defenses in Poland and the Czech Republic, ostensibly to guard against Iranian attacks on U.S. allies in Europe, are among a host of issues that soured U.S.-Russia relations during the former Bush administration. There have been indications Obama, who has vowed to shake up American foreign policy, might be willing to set aside the missile defense system.

MSM media attempts to shape news.

A new U.S. readiness to engage Iran could help resolve suspicions about its nuclear work but Tehran must do more to "unblock this stalemated situation," the U.N. nuclear watchdog chief said on Monday. Mohamed ElBaradei made the remarks in an address kicking off a week-long meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency's 35-nation board of governors in Vienna, the first since U.S. President Barack Obama took office on January 20.

Iran likely has enough material to make a nuclear weapon, U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Adm. Mike Mullen told CNN's John King Sunday.

"We think they do, quite frankly," Mullen said on "State of The Union." "Iran having a nuclear weapon, I believe, for a long time, is a very, very bad outcome for the region and for the world," he said.

Dr Henry Kissinger has just written a persuasive essay on the vital and immediate need to check the growth of nuclear weapons [distributed across the world and printed in the International Herald Tribune of 7-8 February]. He argues, "Efforts to develop a more nuanced application [of nuclear power] have never succeeded, from the doctrine of a geographically limited nuclear war of the 1950s and 1960s to the mutual assured destruction theory of general nuclear war of the 1970s". Today's dividing lines of ideology and regional conflict, rogue states and non-state actors, he continues, constitute a very real possibility of a bomb being used by stealth. The possibility of preventing such a catastrophe "will prove increasingly remote unless the emerging nuclear weapons program in Iran and the existing one in North Korea are overcome". ...

It is interesting that Dr Kissinger mentions every nuclear power except one: Israel.

"We are continuing this policy in bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy. Allah willing, and nothing is too great for Allah," bin Laden said in the transcript.

We stop a moment to reflect on one of the protagonists in the war against terror - Osama bin Laden. The man publicly announced his strategy. He would lure the Great Satan to waste his energy, his money, and his reputation in a futile war. For every $1,000 expended by bin Laden’s forces, the United States would have to spend $100 million! Sooner or later, the empire would be exhausted. It would be bled dry, bankrupt - powerless to defend itself.

Prof Kotlikoff said that, by some measures, the US is already bankrupt. "To paraphrase the Oxford English Dictionary, is the United States at the end of its resources, exhausted, stripped bare, destitute, bereft, wanting in property, or wrecked in consequence of failure to pay its creditors," he asked.

According to his central analysis, "the US government is, indeed, bankrupt, insofar as it will be unable to pay its creditors, who, in this context, are current and future generations to whom it has explicitly or implicitly promised future net payments of various kinds''.

A Mushrooming Problem
Sounding an alarm as the ultimate weapon of mass destruction spreads

BY GABRIEL SCHOENFELD

THE U.S. DETONATED the first atomic bomb on July 16,1945, in a New Mexico desert. But the tremendous effort leading to the successful test was very much an international affair A striking fact is that more than three-quarters of the senior scientists laboring in the heavily guarded wartime facility at Los Alamos were not born in this country. Even the Soviet Union-as Thomas C. Reed and Danny B. Stillman remark sardonically in "The Nuclear Express," a history of nuclear proliferation-had their "representatives" present at the creation. With such a multifarious cast of characters in close attendance, it is no wonder that, like furies emerging from Pandora's box, the lethal technology began to spread uncontrollably at the very dawn of the atomic age.

Six decades later we live in what has come to resemble a nuclear madhouse. Nine countries are known nuclear powers, including the basket case of Pakistan and lunatic-led North Korea. Unless the world takes action, another lunatic-led state, Iran, will soon join the list. Indeed, the time is drawing short: The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that U.S. officials have discovered "fresh evidence of recent efforts by Iran to evade sanctions" and to acquire the means to deliver nuclear weapons on long-range missiles.

Ranging widely over the subject, Messrs. Reed and Stlllman assemble a mass of details, technical and political, to tell us how the world reached this parlous state. Both are retired designers of thermonuclear weapons, the former from Livermore National Laboratory, the latter Los Alamos. Two themes predominate in their account. First, the technological know-how to build nuclear weapons has become Impossible to contain. The nuclear express, they say, is a train that long ago left the station and is now hurtling down the tracks without an engineer at the throttle. On one of his visits to is counterparts in China, Mr. Stillman tells us, he observed American-educated Chinese engineers and physicists laboring away on every aspect of weapons design. As "The Nuclear Express" makes clear, the Chinese-assiduous students of American achievements-have been improving on our best techniques and then, in turn, disseminating this technological know-how to clients abroad.

The book's second theme: The U.S. has invested extraordinary efforts in making nuclear weapons safe, but it was not always thus, and elsewhere it is still not a universal practice. In the first rears of the nuclear era, military discipline alone, kept American weapons from misuse. In some locations, in other words, the only thing preventing the unintended explosion of a nuclear weapon was a 19-year-old soldier with a rifle. The generals in charge of weapons discouraged the implementation of technological barriers-mechanical or electrical locks-that might slow an American response to a surprise attack.

By the late 1950s, after a series of frightening near-accidents, such laxity had become intolerable. Engineers set to work, and now Permissive Action Links are built into almost all U.S. nuclear weapons; the computerized padlocks require the insertion of a 12-digit code, known only to the president and his designated successors, to arm a nuclear device. Messrs. Reed and Stillinan express doubt that all of the other nuclear powers have adopted such prophylactic measures. The practices of Pakistan and India in this area are not fully known. Nor can we be at all confident about the safeguards established by Russia, where slovenliness is part of the national-culture and nuclear accidents have already taken a terrible toll in human life.

Messrs. Reed and Stiliman conclude that a fierce storm is gathering. They see the Islamic bomb-whether wielded by Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia or some unforeseen possessor of the murderous weaponry-bringing about a world in which "millions will die" and "more than one democratic society will be consigned to the dust-heap of history."

The authors are also deeply concerned about China, some of whose officials "might not object to the nuclear destruction of New York or Washington followed by the collapse of American financial power, so long as Chinese fingerprints could not be found at the scene of the crime." But Messrs. Reed and Stillman do not provide evidence for this dire reading of Beijing's intentions, nor do they explain why the Chinese would embark on a course almost certain to wreck their own economy as well.

Which brings us to the weakness of this often informative book. The authors are nuclear-weapons designers, not students of international relations-and it shows. When they depart from their discussion of technology and enter the realm of politics, they make many strong assertions, some of which are questionable or worse. Tracing the flow of technology from Islamabad to Riyadh, for example, Messrs. Reed and Stillman tell us that "the peoples of Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are culturally close, indistinguishable in person." Wrong on both counts.

The authors are at their best when describing what they know well: the inner workings of these frightening devices. For anyone wishing to understand why, say, the U.S. "Bravo" test of March 1, 1954, was three times more powerful than planned, "The Nuclear Express" is a useful source. The explanation: Weapon designers miscalculated the way in which the isotope Lithium-7 would convert into Lithium-6, thereby supercharging the bomb into a 15-megaton explosion. The resulting shockwave fractured a concrete firing bunker 20 miles from the blast, and radiation poured into a control room filled with unhappy officials. Other casualties from radioactive fallout were suffered in locations more than 100 miles from the epicenter.

The story of Bravo has been told before by others, but it is worth hearing again, especially from writers with a thorough knowledge of the technology involved. Bravo was a little mistake with big consequences. This book may be unsteady when it ventures into political analysis, but it is sufficiently steady to make plain that allowing the nuclear express to keep roaring ahead would be a much bigger mistake, with much bigger consequences.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush rejected several Israeli requests last year for weapons and permission for a potential airstrike inside Iran, the author of an investigative report told CNN.

Israel approached the White House in early 2008 with three requests for an attack on Iran's main nuclear complex, said New York Times reporter David Sanger. His article appears in the newspaper on Sunday.

According to Sanger, Israel wanted specialized bunker-busting bombs, equipment to help refuel planes making flights into Iran and permission to fly over Iraq to reach the major nuclear complex at Natanz, the site of Iran's only known uranium enrichment plant.

The White House "deflected" the first two requests and denied the last, Sanger said.

Purpose of this page to is show what, in fact, should happen once a criminal complaint affidavit has been filed by example.

We will cite from Title 18 Annotated.

We went to UNM law library to copy the most recent rules 3 and 4.



But what, in fact, may happen in the US judicial system. Because of lawyers, of course.

John C Baird used lawyers in his 18.3 year legal project. Lawyers caused Baird's legal project project to fail.

We will draw on history.

I STARTED WORLD WAR I

On June 28, 1914, the Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Hapsburg throne, was assassinated in Sarajevo by Serb nationalist Gavrilo Princip. Austria used the assassination as an excuse to declare war on Serbia. Within weeks, the major powers of Europe were mobilizing their forces. World War I had begun.

Borijove Jeytic was one of Princip's co-conspirators. He wrote the following account, revealing the reason the world was plunged into war was that Archduke Ferdinand just happened to choose the wrong day to visit Serbia.

A tiny clipping from a newspaper mailed without comment from a secret band of terrorists in Zagreb, a capital of Croatia, to their comrades in Belgrade, was the torch which set the world afire with war in 1914. That bit of paper wrecked old proud empires. It gave birth to new, free nations.

I was one of the members of the terrorist band in Belgrade which received it and, in those days, I and my companions were regarded as desperate criminals. A price was on our heads. Today my little band is seen in a different light, as pioneer patriots. It is recognized that our secret plans hatched in an obscure cafe in the capital of old Serbia, have led to the independence of the new Yugoslavia, the united nation set free from Austrian domination.

The little clipping was from the Srobobran, a Croatian journal of limited circulation, and consisted of a short telegram from Vienna. This telegram declared that the Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand would visit Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia, 28 June, to direct army maneuvers in the neighboring mountains.

It reached our meeting place, the cafe called Zeatna Moruana, one night the latter part of April, 1914.. . . At a small table in a very humble cafe, beneath a flickering gas jet we sat and read it. There was no advice nor admonition sent with it. Only four letters and two numerals were sufficient to make us unanimous, without discussion, as to what we should do about it. They were contained in the fateful date, 28 June.

How dared Franz Ferdinand, not only the representative of the oppressor but in his own person an arrogant tyrant, enter Sarajevo on that day? Such an entry was a studied insult.

Twenty-eight June is a date engraved deeply in the heart of every Serb, so that the day has a name of its own. It is called the vidovnan. It is the day on which the old Serbian kingdom was conquered by the Turks at the battle of Amselfelde in 1389. It is also the day on which in the second Balkan War the Serbian arms took glorious revenge on the Turk for his old victory and for the years of enslavement.

That was no day for Franz Ferdinand, the new oppressor, to venture to the very doors of Serbia for a display of the force of arms which kept us beneath his heel.

Our decision was taken almost immediately. Death to the tyrant!

Then came the matter of arranging it. To make his death certain twenty-two members of the organization were selected to carry out the sentence. At first we thought we would choose the men by lot. But here Gavrilo Princip intervened. Princip is destined to go down in Serbian history as one of her greatest heroes. From the moment Ferdinand's death was decided upon he took an active leadership in its planning. Upon his advice we left the deed to members of our band who were in and around Sarajevo under his direction and that of Gabrinovic, a Linotype operator on a Serbian newspaper. Both were regarded as capable of anything in the cause.

The fateful morning dawned. Two hours before Franz Ferdinand arrived in Sarajevo all the twenty-two conspirators were in their allotted positions, armed and ready. They were distributed five 500 yards apart over the whole route along which the Archduke must travel from the railroad station to the town hall.

When Franz Ferdinand and his retinue drove from the station they were allowed to pass the first two conspirators. The motor cars were driving too fast to make an attempt feasible and in the crowd were Serbians: throwing a grenade I would have killed many innocent people.

When the car passed Gabrinovic, the compositor, he threw his grenade. It hit the side of the car, but Franz Ferdinand with presence of mind threw himself back and was uninjured. Several officers riding in his attendance were injured.

The cars sped to the Town Hall and the rest of the conspirators did not interfere with them. After the reception in the Town Hall General Potiorek, the Austrian Commander, pleaded with Franz Ferdinand to leave the city, as it was seething with rebellion. The Archduke was persuaded to drive the shortest way out of the city and to go quickly

The road to the maneuvers was shaped like the letter V, making a sharp turn at the bridge over the River Nilgacka. Franz Ferdinand's car could go fast enough until it reached this spot but here it was forced to slow down for the turn. Here Princip had taken his stand.

As the car came abreast he stepped forward from the curb, drew his automatic pistol from his coat and fired two shots. The first struck the wife of the Archduke, the Archduchess Sofia, in the abdomen. She was an expectant mother. She died instantly.

The second bullet struck the Archduke close to the heart.

He uttered only one word; "Sofia" - a call to his stricken wife. Then his head fell back and he collapsed. He died almost instantly.

The officers seized Princip. They beat him over the head with the flat of their swords. They knocked him down, they kicked him, scraped the skin from his neck with the edges of their swords, tortured him, all but killed him.

Then he was taken to the Sarajevo jail. The next day he was transferred to the military prison and the round-up of his fellow conspirators proceeded, although he denied that he had worked with anyone.

He was confronted with Gabrinovic, who had thrown the bomb. Princip denied he knew him. Others were brought in, but Princip denied the most obvious things.

The next day they put chains on Princip's feet, which he wore till his death.

His only sign of regret was the statement that he was sorry he had killed the wife of the Archduke. He had aimed only at her husband and would have preferred that any other bullet should have struck General Potiorek.

The Austrians arrested every known revolutionary in Sarajevo and among them, naturally, I was one. But they had no proof of my connection with the crime. I was placed in the cell next to Princip's, and when Princip was taken out to walk in the prison yard I was taken along as his companion.

On July 28, 1914, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia and the next day began to bombard Belgrade. Russia rushed to assist the Serbs causing Germany to declare war on Russia, thereby joining Austria-Hungary. Because of France's alliance with Russia, Germany declared war on that country as well. The next day Great Britain was forced to enter the fray. Countries continued to join in, with the United States entering the war in 1917. Eventually, it was the countries of Austria-Hungary, Germany, Bulgaria, and what remained of the Ottoman Empire all fighting against Serbia, Russia, Frank Great Britain, Italy, Rumania, Belgium, Greece, Portugal, Montenegro, Liberia, San Marino, Siam, China, Japan, the United States, Cuba, Panama, Guatemala, Brazil, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Honduras, and Haiti. World War I was the second most bloody and costly war in modern history. At least 10 million people were killed.

Though the war probably would have start without this assassination, history certainly would be very different today if the Archduke Franz Ferdinand had chosen any other day except June 28 to visit Sarajevo.

Weird History 101, by John Richard Stephens

And a parallel to a possible high tech version today.

Here is the new "[t]iny clipping from a newspaper ..."

Nojeh Coup

In July 1980, Zbigniew Brzezinski LINK of the United States met Jordan's King Hussein [LINK] in Amman to discuss detailed plans for Saddam Hussein to sponsor a coup in Iran against Khomeini. King Hussein was Saddam's closest confidant in the Arab world, and served as an intermediary during the planning. The Iraqi invasion of Iran would be launched under the pretext of a call for aid from Iranian loyalist officers plotting their own uprising on July 9, 1980 (codenamed Nojeh, after Shahrokhi/Nojeh air base in Hamedan). The Iranian officers were organized by Shapour Bakhtiar LINK, who had fled to France when Khomeini seized power, but was operating from Baghdad and Sulimaniyah at the time of Brzezinski's meeting with Hussein. However, Khomeini LINK learned of the Nojeh Coup plan from Soviet agents in France and Latin America. Shortly after Brzezinski's meeting with Hussein, the President of Iran, Abolhassan Bani-Sadr LINK quietly rounded up 600 of the loyalist plotters within Iran, putting an effective end to the Nojeh Coup.[5] Saddam decided to invade without the Iranian officers' assistance, beginning the Iran-Iraq war on 22 September 1980.

But now it is a post on Internet.

The sentence "In July 1980, Zbigniew Brzezinski LINK of the United States met Jordan's King Hussein [LINK] in Amman to discuss detailed plans for Saddam Hussein to sponsor a coup in Iran against Khomeini." bears investigation for the reason a crime may have been committed.

Legal mechanics of initiating and a proper investigation of the charge and implied charges of the above sentence is a natural job for pro se fights.

Reason, of course, is that we used the spy sting on Iran as a visibility ploy in CIV 97-266 MCA/LFG.

Let's try to peacefully settle these unfortunate matters before they get worse.

Thomas C Reed and Danny Stillman authors of The Nuclear Express address an area of Dr Payne's ability and expertise ... but not particularly of interest. Applied hardware and software cryptography and authentication as well as algorithm comprehension.

Will Self-Encrypting Drives Speed Up PC Boot Times? comment.

We are concerned that display of Dr Nejad at Natanz may be an attempt to imply that Iran's nuclear programs are nuclear bomb, rather than electric power, oriented. A Corp/gov msm ploy.

We believe that both the US and Iran may face electric power shortages within the next several years. And, as a result, we should get matters peacefully settled as soon as possible so as to address possible future electric shortage problems.
Wednesday August 6, 2008 07:19

The charge infuriates Dr. Etemad. "With the Shah, we also came to the conclusion that Iran was in great need of nuclear energy because our population was steadily growing and our gas and oil will run out. That's why even though I was in the old regime, I should be fair to the new regime because they are following the same line.

Wed, 03 Sep 2008 22:32:58 GMT Currently suffering from electricity shortage, Iran has been forced to adopt a rationing program by scheduling power outages - of up to two hours a day - across both urban and rural areas in the country.

Thu Oct 02 01:00:00 CDT 2008 A new study released this week highlights what experts have been saying for years: the U.S. faces significant risk of power brownouts and blackouts as early as next summer that may cost tens of billions of dollars and threaten lives.

The study, "Lights Out In 2009?" warns that the U.S. "faces potentially crippling electricity brownouts and blackouts beginning in the summer of 2009, which may cost tens of billions of dollars and threaten lives." ...

The Electricity Advisory Committee (EAC or Committee) has assessed the current electric power delivery system infrastructure and concludes that it will be unable to ensure a reliable, cost-effective, secure, and environmentally sustainable supply of electricity for the next two decades. The early warning signs of a declining electric power delivery infrastructure are visible today. Fuel transportation, particularly by rail, is congested, and any outage of a rail line can create stress on electric power supply. Coal piles at power plants have been low in the recent past. Much of the electricity supply and delivery infrastructure is nearing the end of its useful life. Without attention, natural gas demand could grow faster than the supply and capacity of the associated infrastructure to produce and deliver it. Spent nuclear fuel storage at some reactors is reaching capacity without any policy direction on long-term storage or reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel. The integration of renewable energy resources rises and falls with the ebb and flow of congressional legislation to fund the production tax credits (PTCs). The transmission infrastructure is aging and becoming more congested. Further development of the infrastructure is impeded by an archaic patchwork of cost allocation policies, fragmented permitting and siting practices, and varying needs analyses that are limited in focus and scope.

The engineering, science, and technology expertise required to meet the formidable technical challenges of keeping the lights on in the future is disappearing. ... http://www.oe.energy.gov/DocumentsandMedia/adequacy_report_01-09-09.pdf

"[S]o far I have only described what is already obviously going on. Add to this the likelihood that Iran is closer to achieving membership in the atomic weapon club. They’ve been spinning their centrifuges all year and nobody has done anything about it. My guess is that neither the US nor Israel will attempt to take out their facilities in the year ahead. If Iran used a nuclear device against Israel, or anybody else, they would be asking to become, in turn, the world’s largest ashtray. ...

U.S. Walking Israel-Iran Tightrope

JIM HOAGLAND
Syndicated Columnist

WASHINGTON - President Obama's national security aides are struggling to finish a strategic review of U.S. policy toward Iran to be published this spring. When it emerges, the review is certain to be comprehensive, imaginative - and largely irrelevant to the most difficult choices on Tehran that Washington will face over the next year or two.

I don't mean that as a criticism of the president and his advisers, who have sprinted with elan toward the 100-day milestone they will reach on Wednesday. In that time they have authored two other strategic reviews, dispatched special envoys to urgent trouble spots and invited Middle East leaders to the White House to keep that region's flickering peace hopes alive.

These adjustments were necessary and handled adroitly. Offering engagement to Iran made Tehran's behavior, not Washington's, the dominant issue for international opinion. The review will now outline the mix of incentives and sanctions the administration intends to use to modify Iranian policies.

But no single forecast of what should or will happen in the Iranian nexus of nuclear ambition and support for terrorism can anticipate or encompass all options. There are too many moving parts. And that reality is only part of a larger problem.

The most important untested variable in the Iranian equation is the new government of Israel, which is visibly nervous about Obama's attempt to engage Iran and uncertain about his commitment to Israel's security, as most Israelis define it. These doubts create a queasiness between the two allies that cannot be publicly discussed by either without damaging political consequences.

So don't expect the Iran review to deal forthrightly (or perhaps at all) with this core question: Can Obama's hopes for Middle East peace and fruitful negotiations with Iran survive an Israeli military strike on Iran's nuclear program, perhaps as early as the first half of 2010?

The likelihood of that strike has been growing since it became clear in the final months of the Bush administration that the U.S. would not undertake such action itself. I draw this conclusion from a series of not-for-attribution conversations with American, Asian, European and Middle East diplomats, and other officials and analysts, conducted since Obama's inauguration.

There are serious arguments on the other side, beginning with doubts about Israel's ability to identify, reach and destroy all of Iran's bomb-building capabilities. There is also a widespread belief that not even hawkish Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would risk the rupture with the U.S. and the fury of the Arab Street that an Israeli attack on Islamic Iran could bring.

"The Israelis who have to decide this thing will find these arguments very familiar," said a former ambassador to Israel from a developing country. "They are precisely the arguments used in 1981 to say Israel could not and should not disable Saddam Hussein's nuclear reactor in Iraq before that happened. They are arguments that could have been used against striking the North Korean reactor in Syria last year. And yet, it did not turn out that way at all in either case."

Asked If Israeli warplanes had the range to fly around Arab-controlled airspace to hit Iran, a European official replied:

"You might think not, unless you noticed the emphasis being put on Israel's in-air refueling capacity in its recent military exercises. In any event, Arab air defenses have never been a problem for Israel."

Israel sounded out the Bush White House nearly a year ago on flying across Iraq to hit Iran. George W. Bush discouraged what was a probe of U.S. attitudes rather than a serious request for a specific mission that was being planned. "But we did not say the answer would always be no. And we did not say we would shoot Israeli planes down if they came," a former U.S. official says.

The nightmare scenario for Obama is that Israel launches an attack on Iranian nuclear facilities that is largely unsuccessful but which provokes an Iranian missile retaliation against Israel and all-out guerrilla campaigns by Hamas and Hezbollah. Could any U.S. president, however angry, turn his back on Israel in that situation? What would happen to the U.S. mediation efforts Obama promised King Abdullah of Jordan in their White -House meeting last week?

Battle plans famously don't survive an army's first encounter with the enemy. Strategic reviews are works of intellectual cogency until they are broadsided by reality. The true test of Obama's Iran policies will come if and when events that are foreseeable - but currently unspeakable - occur.

Going slow doesn't mean that you are stupid.

Slow may mean you are careful.

As for writing. We try to write for money on the side. For good reason.
Do not fear the enemy, for your enemy can only take your life. It is far better that you fear the media, for they will steal your HONOR. That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditching and shoemaking and fetched up in journalism on their way to the poorhouse.
