Normally, I would view this news as a positive development as regarding the US Attacking Iran, or alternatively, helping Israel to attack, backing their play and being sucked into war buy a possible “false-flag” attack on one of our ships in the Persian Gulf - when our own military is warning Israel against staging a false-flag attack. This should have been front-page news and heard on all of our news media, but in this instance, them not covering this issue borders on criminal complicity. This was a major news item, but finding it was another matter - unless you get your news regularly from the alternative news media, you probably haven’t seen this:

US Warns Israel –There Will Be No ‘USS Liberty Pt II’

July 28, 2008 — crescentandcross

For the last 41 years, Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty has been a taboo topic about which neither the Jewish state nor the US has allowed free and open discussion. Like a paid-off judge in the service of organized crime interests pounding his gavel on the bench, for the last 4 decades Israel and her supporters in the US government have bellowed ‘case closed’ and have raked over the coals anyone–including the survivors of the attack themselves–from arguing otherwise. Realizing the tidal wave of outrage that would occur if the American people were to come of age and lose their innocence in realizing what Israel did in murdering 34 American servicemen 4 decades ago in a premeditated act of war (to say nothing of the cover-up perpetrated by the US government) it has been on the list of forbidden topics……until recently.

Cutting short his trip in Europe the first week of July, recently-appointed Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Adm. Mike Mullen flew to Tel Aviv along with an entourage of high-ranking US military personnel and, upon his arrival, rushed to meet with the highest-ranking members of Israel’s military establishment. While this is not unusual (as many such meetings have been taking place as of late) what was unusual was the topic discussed–Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty 41 years ago during the 6 day war and how ‘important’ it was that ‘history not repeat itself,’ given the present tensions existing between Israel and Iran. Considering the subject of that meeting and the well-known cover-up that has taken place these last 41 years, the meeting should have made headline news all over America. Sadly, however, it did not, just another testimony to the fact that America is now officially ‘occupied territory’ every bit as much as Arab Palestine.

The fact that the meeting took place at all is news enough, but what is of even more importance is what can be inferred from the meeting. Given the fact that this brazen 2 hour attack upon the United States has been hushed up these last 41 years, there can be little else to conclude by Mullen’s meeting other than the obvious–That someone from within the intelligence or military apparatus of the United States has looked towards the horizon and concluded that Israel is planning a ‘USS Liberty Pt II,’ meaning an attack on a US ship, most likely in the Persian Gulf, leading to a massive loss of life to be then blamed on Iran. As was intended in 1967 when Israel attacked the Liberty, Americans would be incensed into such a war frenzy that they would demand the ‘obliteration’ (a la Hillary Clinton) of the guilty party, the false identity of which the Jewish media establishment in America would be all too glad to provide. And while all players involved have been tight-lipped about the particulars of this story, what can be concluded nevertheless is that Mullen’s impromptu trip to Israel and subsequent discussion was in effect a stern warning to Israel of ‘Don’t even think about it bubba’. (Emphasis added.) MUCH MORE

When I read the above story, it felt like a breath of fresh air, that maybe through our military commanders, America was waking-up to the fact that attacking Iran would have horrendous results that our military appears to be attempting to avoid. We need sanity right now, and this was a story that should have been heard around the world, but America’s Mainstream News Media failed us again, preferring to protect Israel’s image rather than broadcasting a story that also carries huge political ramifications for the State of Israel. A high-level visit of this sort had to be brought-on by intelligence reports and some type of substantial evidence, some of it probably released to the Israelis’. There’s also a story out that predicts Bush Will Issue a Mass Pardon; this is disgusting and is an attempt to cover-up criminal behavior, however it may signal that Bush will leave office without declaring Martial Law, which has been the chief worry of the bulk of Liberal/Progressive pundits. So far, two points for the cause of saving America and not attacking Iran with all of its subsequent consequences.

The Israeli Media is attacking the Bush administration for being “weak” on Iran, and they cite polls that indicate Forty-two percent (42%) of Americans say that if Israel launches an attack against Iran, the United States should help Israel. Most Americans view Bush’s propensity for war as a trait that’s despised, and this is good news for the American public, at least those who know the real ramifications that are tied to an attack on Iran:

“Shameful” meeting with Iran

If you think everybody is happy with the American decision to attend a meeting with the Iranian nuclear negotiator, think again. Here is Stephen Hayes, writing for the Weekly Standard editors:

The Iranians have certainly been paying attention to this kinder, gentler Bush administration and its sudden embrace of the thank-you-sir-may-I-have-another school of diplomacy.

Two weeks before the Bush administration announced it would be crossing the final red line in diplomacy with Iran, and sending a senior U.S. official for direct meetings with a terrorist-friendly regime, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad predicted that the United States would acquiesce. “They know that they cannot use the language of force against Iran,” he said, “and must bend in the face of the will of the Iranian people.”

And bend they did. MORE

Normally, I’d just chalk this up to boo-hooing of the radicals in Israel that want war with Iran, but when they cite that “Forty-two percent (42%) of Americans say that if Israel launches an attack against Iran, the United States should help Israel.” Those forty-two percent of Americans who support the U.S. helping Israel to attack Iran are also representative of a public that has never had their mainstream news media reveal what the dangers of an Iranian attack pose to the general population, that our economy would likely collapse completely, which could easily usher in martial law, and that massive food shortages would almost instantaneously arise in the continental United States. We also don’t know how China and Russia will react, however, Russia has stated it we attack Iran, we attack Russia. People who are aware of the facts cringe at the mere idea of attacking Iran, however those who rely on a worthless MSM favor something they don’t understand or comprehend, and speak like the “sheeple” they are - guided by partisan politicians, a complicit MSM, and religious leaders that are certifiably nuttier than a fruitcake!

If Israel attacks Iran, 42% say U.S. should help

A couple of days ago we wrote about the previous Rasmussen poll on Iran (78% of Americans believe: Iran will soon develop nuclear weapons), and now there’s new such survey.
