(many thanks to HL for this info! S.) Zerohedge reports:US Aircraft Carrier John Stennis Arrives By Iran Ten days ago, when we last tracked the progress of the third US aircraft carrier, CVN-74 Stennis, with destination Arabian Gulf, aka Iran, we reported that it was “within a week of reaching” its destination. Sure enough, as the latest Stratfor naval update confirms, CVN-74 has now reached its destination for which it

Just as it had done with the KLA before the US/NATO war on Serbia, the USA is about to take the local terrorist group, in this case the Mujahideen-e Khalq, off its official terror list. That makes sense politically and it is legally necessary to make it easier to fund, train and otherwise assist it: US assistance to various terrorist groups worldwide is usually provided only covertly which, of course,
These are uncharacteristically strong words form the Hezbollah leader and I wonder if that is not also a way of preparing the Middle-East for a US attack on Iran. In the meantime, one of the most pathetic US puppets in Lebanon, Amin Gemayel, actually took the risk of condemning Hassan Nasrallah and, once again, that just makes me marvel at systematic way the Lebanese Phalangists always end up on the
Over the past few months there appears to be a dramatic rise in the number of articles, opinions and rumors discussing the likelihood of a US and/or Israeli military attack on Iran. Even the Israeli press is now regularly reporting various opinions about the desirability, or not, of such an attack while keeping a rolling tally of those officials who favor and oppose, often in very strong terms, such an
by Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich George Santayana wisely said: “”Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Oblivious to history and its lessons, America and its Western allies are repeating their actions of the 1950’s — that of imposing an oil embargo on Iran. The American-led alliance has forgotten the past. Iran remembers. When under the leadership of the nationalist Dr. Mossadegh, Iran opted to nationalize its oil industry,

The Hizbullah delegation was led by Head of Loyalty to the Resistance Bloc member Mohammad Raad, and included MP Nawwar Saheli and Hizbullah International Relations Official Ammar Moussawi.
I just have listened to a very interesting interview of a Russian military expert named Vladilav Shurygin. For the Russian speakers I am posting it below: Now for those of you who do not speak Russian, I want to summarize Shurygin’s main hypothesis: that the US will use a “two-phase” approach to Iran very similar to the one it used on Iraq: a) The first phase would involve a massive
I was recently asked by a reader to update two of my past articles, Iran’s asymmetrical response options and For Israel war is the continuation of national suicide by other means, and that is an excellent idea, considering that the first one was written in 2007 and the second one in 2010. I did touch upon these issues in a more recent article, Iran in the crosshair again, which does
Commentary: Amazing interview, isn’t it? Read between the lines and think about it: what is Wilkerson *really* saying? He is saying that the entire US political establishment, the entire US polity, is completely controlled by, and powerless against, the Israel Lobby. Even though many politicians and government officials fully understand that the USA is headed towards a disastrous war against Iran, they are unable to do anything to prevent that
LEON PANETTA, U.S. SECRETARY OF DEFENSE: Are they trying to develop a nuclear weapon? No, but we know that they’re trying to develop a nuclear capability, and that’s what concerns us. And our red line to Iran is: do not develop a nuclear weapon. That’s a red line for us. BOB SCHIEFFER, FACE THE NATION (CBS): What would happen if Israel does decide to take this matter into its own
I am sure you all have followed it. From Panetta’s threats about Iran crossing a “red line”, to the saber-rattling of pretty much all the Republicans except Ron Paul, to the Israel’s lobby renewed efforts to get the US to not only impose illegal sanctions against Iran, but to actually attack it. So is this really going to happen? Last time it appeared that Iran was about to be attacked
Haaretz poll: Israelis evenly split over attacking Iran Iran says united and ‘ready for war’ with Israel Iran military head warns of ‘heavy damage’ should Israel attack Decision to attack Iran must be made with a clear mind UK military steps up plans for Iran attack amid fresh nuclear fears US fears uncoordinated Israeli strike on Iran Halper: Israel may attack Iran so that we won’t hear the word ‘Palestinian’
A truly seminal editorial by David Salzer Broder in the Washington Post: ——-The war recovery? David S. BroderSunday, October 31, 2010; Washington Post A27 When the midterm election cycle began, the prevailing opinion was that Barack Obama was cleverer and more inspirational than anyone else on the scene. As it ends, nothing appears to have changed. OH, YES, I know that Democrats have fallen into a peck of trouble and
Americans for Peace Now interviews ex IDF and Mossad analyst Yossi Alpher: Alpher answers questions about the possibility of an Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear program, and the status of Israeli civil-military relations. Q. Jeffrey Goldberg’s “Atlantic” article on the possibility of an Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear program is causing quite a stir. What’s your take? Yossi Alpher A. The article contains a lot of interesting perspectives and is
By Gareth Porter on Intifada Palestine What Jeffrey Goldberg Didn’t Report Pro-Israeli journalist Jeffrey Goldberg’s article in “The Atlantic” magazine was evidently aimed at showing why the Barack Obama administration should worry that it risks an attack by the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Iran in the coming months unless it takes a much more menacing line toward Iran’s nuclear programme. But the article provides new evidence that
