He ominously observed that species on average survive about 100,000 years. Humanity's been around about that long. He wondered if we'd use our remaining time to self-destruct. If so, we'd be the only species ever to do it. Given our current path, it's possible and perhaps sooner than most people imagine.

Hold the War, says Israel

America and Israel have longstanding Iran war plans. Launching it means WW III. With nuclear bunker buster or other nuclear weapons, the dangers Krieger, Ellsberg, Caldicott, and others explain are real.

On March 29, Haaretz headlined, "Israel's plan to attack Iran put on hold until next year at the earliest," saying:

On March 27, "Israel's 2012 war against Iran came to a quiet end. The capricious plans for a huge aerial attack were returned to the deep recesses of safes and hearts. The war may not have been canceled but it has certainly been postponed. For a while, at least, we can sound the all clear: It won't happen this year."

At issue, said Haaretz, is possible hundreds of US casualties. Their blood would be on Israel's hands. War won't happen "until at least the spring of 2013."

At the same time, last September The New York Times headlined, "US Quietly Supplies Israel with Bunker-Busting Bombs," saying:

Unnamed US officials confirmed it without commenting on their number or capabilities. In addition, "Israel developed its own bunker-busting bomb," but America's are more "cost-effective." 

Israel is nuclear armed and dangerous. Perhaps its arsenal includes earth-penetrating bunker busters. They increase the threat of disaster if used, either its own or what Washington supplies.

Given the rage of both countries for war, postponing it may only buy time to attack jointly after America's November elections. Obama wants another four years. He can't run again. Lame ducks have greater flexibility in second terms than first, provided Congress goes along if legislation's needed.

Wars don't need it. False flags launch them. Most past US wars began that way. Former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski believes Iran may be blamed for a false flag on US soil to justify retaliation. Others feel the same way.

Former Israeli intelligence officer, Avi Perry , wrote a Jerusalem Post article about a planned "'Pearl Harbor scenario, in which Iran launch(es) a 'surprise' attack on the US Navy." Doing so would give Washington "the perfect rationalization to finish them off."

Iran, of course, plans no such attack or others against any targets. But it won't prevent Washington from staging a false flag blamed on Tehran. Most often, "big lies" launch wars. It's an American tradition since the late 19th century.

They work every time. Washington needs popular support. Manufactured fear provides it. People rely on governments for protection when threatened, even if no threat whatever exists. 

Deception creates an illusion of one. Majorities are fooled every time. One war follows another. Expect an eventual nuclear one. 

All bets are off if it happens. The time to prevent it is now. Only people power can do it. It's up to us. It's our only chance. Imagine the potential consequences otherwise.
