LaRouche: Remember Iraq! Stop Iran attack, nuclear WWIII
German political leader Helga Zepp-LaRouche, the wife of U.S. statesman Lyndon LaRouche, has warned that the world could be at war within weeks unless nations and citizens reject the rehashed neo-con WMD lies pushed by British stooge Barack Obama, the British, French and Israelis to justify an attack on Iran which could trigger a nuclear world war.
The just-released International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report alleging Iran is pushing ahead with a nuclear weapons program, to which allegations the Iranian government had already responded with a 117-page detailed refutation, has been prepared as the green light for a rogue Israeli strike by one of the neo-con architects of the Iraq war, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which will trigger an Iranian counterstrike, followed by a U.S. response, and then a showdown with Russia and China.
The "intelligence" cited by Obama at his G-20 press conference in Cannes amounts to the same rubbish WMD claims used in the build-up to the Iraq war, down to satellite photos purportedly of steel containers to be used for nuclear weapons tests, a rehash of the mobile weapons labs in Iraq that turned out to be empty containers. On 5th November, Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi told reporters in Tehran that the IAEA "intelligence" on Iran's program was a "fabrication": "The Americans raised documents like this in the past: the Niger scandal", Salehi said, referring to the bogus claims that Niger had provided yellowcake uranium to Saddam Hussein.
Even a former Israeli Mossad chief, Ephraim Halevy, declared that Iran is far from being an existential threat and that an attack would endanger the entire region. "Ultra-Orthodox radicalization [among Jews] poses a bigger threat than [Iranian President] Ahmadinejad," he said, according to Ynet on 5th November, the website of the Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth.
Obama's role in this war-charge is more confirmation of Lyndon LaRouche's charge that he is a British stooge, a Nero-like narcissist in love with his reflection in his teleprompter who was installed as president through a public relations con funded by British agent George Soros, the money bags behind the fake political movements GetUp, MoveOn and Avaaz and the bogus Twitter and Facebook revolutions in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. The American people were duped into thinking they were voting for the opposite of the psychopath George Bush; instead they got much worse˜a maniac who pleasures in murdering U.S. citizens with drones.
Preparations for an Iran strike have been under way in secrecy: war criminal Tony Blair, the fabricator of the WMD lies regurgitated by George W. Bush and his Secretary of State Gen. Colin Powell in 2002-3, met Obama in the U.S. two weeks ago; British Chief of Defence Staff Gen. David Richards visited Israel last week, which was followed by a visit by Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak to London. (Powell has since called his adoption of British claims that Saddam Hussein possessed WMD, "the worst mistake of my life.")
Contrary to his public announcements, Obama has not pulled troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, but has kept a huge U.S. military presence in the Middle East: 30,000 troops in Iraq, 20,000 in the Gulf States, 100,000 troops in Afghanistan, three nuclear aircraft carriers, one in the eastern Mediterranean and two in the Indian Ocean, accompanied by flotillas of destroyers and frigates all equipped with modern air defence systems and within striking distance of Iran. The 2nd November London Guardian reported that the British military is already planning for an attack.<http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/nov/02/uk-military-iran-attack-nuclear>
(Australians should especially note the purpose of Obama's visit next week, which is to open a multimillion dollar "pre-positioning" base next to Robertson Barracks on the outskirts of Darwin, to store equipment for military operations in Asia.)
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told reporters at a press conference in Moscow on 8th November that an Israeli strike against Iran's nuclear program "would be a grave mistake, fraught with unpredictable consequences". The consequences were spelled out in a business publication, www.abc.az, from the central Asian republic of Azerbaijan, which borders Iran: "In the case of realization of such a plan, the world can stand on the brink of nuclear war. In Syria [which lies on the route of an Israeli air strike of Iran and would be a target too], there is a Russian naval base, and Russian specialists work at the Bushehr nuclear power plant. How modern Russia acts in case of murder of its peacekeepers and citizens the world learned in August 2008 in Georgia. Russian military doctrine permits the use of nuclear weapons even against countries not having it." (Emphasis added.)
Furthermore, Iran and Pakistan were official observers at the 7th November Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) heads of government meeting in St. Petersburg, where Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin met with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao. Iran, Pakistan and India have applied for full membership of the SCO, a strategic alliance which represents the majority of the world's population. Russia and China are already staunchly opposed to a strike on Iran˜if it goes ahead, the U.S., Britain, France, and Israel, supported by perennial cannon-fodder Australia, will provoke a conflict with this power bloc, which is the intention.
"The situation is escalating towards World War III very quickly if we don't turn this around," Helga LaRouche warned on 7th November, adding, "and one way of turning it around is to make sure that the full scope of the strategic confrontation which is unfolding is getting clearly through to people."
