Yesterday I was reading an article I wanted to blog about regarding more warships being sent to the middle east. I was going to point out that once again all of the telltale signs of impending war are visible. I was even going to point out that a certain quote by Leon Panetta makes it very clear we are doing this at the behest of
Israel the international community; however, the international community seems to want the US out of the middle east, and an end to their empire building.
“When the world calls, we have to respond,” U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told sailors
While reading the entire document, I decided I wanted to point out a few “irregularities” in the article, not just that Panetta danced around saying that we are waging this war for Israel.
The USS John C. Stennis, which can carry 90 warplanes, is heading to the Gulf as Iran continues to challenge the world by advancing its unsupervised nuclear program
Oh, really? Iran challenges the world by “advancing its unsupervised nuclear program”? How many times has Iran allowed inspections of their nuclear facilities? I’m sure by the moral superiority alluded to by Israel, that Iran hasn’t allowed inspectors in nearly as much as Israel has, right?
…Tehran is dead set to fulfill its stated intention to annihilate Israel, leaving the United States without a committed democratic ally in the region.
I take issue with a couple of the points here. First, the “annihilation” of Israel mentioned above is a well known mistranslation that keeps getting used to imply that poor little Israel is up against another
holohoax holocaust. This couldn’t be further from the truth and anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear should be able to comprehend this. The second issue I have with this quote is the “committed democratic ally in the region.” Committed? Committed to what – the destruction of the United States? Also, no one in their right mind would call an apartheid state a democracy! I think the US would be better off without Israel’s “friendship.”
The U.S. State Dept. continues to push for diplomacy to convince Ahmadinejad to pressure him to allow full inspection of its nuclear facilities by United Nations inspectors.
This statement implies that Iran isn’t cooperating with inspections and, again, couldn’t be further from the truth. I really wonder how many times Israel has allowed inspections of their Dimona nuclear facility. I also think it is crazy that Israel is hell bent on raising the issue of inspections, and the NNPT. Israel has yet to allow inspectors into their nuclear facilities, nor has Israel signed the NNPT. Iran allows inspections, Iran is a signatory on the NNPT yet Israel and the US are lining up to attack them in the very near future.
“We are focused on combining diplomacy and pressure, trying to get Iran to be serious at the negotiating table and we are in full consultations with the Israelis about the picture that we see, and we will continue to make those points clear,” spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said last week.
So now we see who the “world” is that Panetta was referring to when he made the quote at the top of this article – Israel.
