Larouche reports that Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, the Congressman from the 14th CD of Texas, would not back down in an interview today with Murdoch’s Fox TV News, about the fact that the White House would use a “Gulf of Tonkin” incident to launch war against Iran. This is also the view of Lyndon LaRouche, who has identified this danger, calling it “Gulf of Tonkin II.”
In a straightforward interview on Fox News, today, Paul made mincemeat of one of Fox’s female provocateurs who was peddling the White House slander that Paul is accusing the White House of planning a fake terrorist incident to launch that war. Paul just laid out the truth–the White House used 9/11 to attack Iraq. There were no weapons of mass destruction, and there was no connection of Iraq to 9/11, but the White House took advantage of the tragedy to do what it had long planned–war on Iraq and regime change.
The same White House will do the same thing against Iran given the “opportunity” to react to an incident, which could come in many ways–an accident, or a terrorist action by some other force, e.g. Osama Bin Laden, that would be blamed on Iran.
The point is that the White House is intent on that war, says Paul, and has planned on it, as it did the Iraq war.
