Bush sends nuclear sub and more warships to the Gulf

 

Mon Mar 24, 2008 at 11:57:23 PM PDT

 

According to Chris Floyd at the Empire Burlesque web site:

 

    The Saudi government is now preparing plans to deal with "any sudden nuclear and radioactive hazards" that may arise from an attack on Iran's nuclear reactors.  This was reported by a top Saudi newspaper, Okaz, and relayed by a leading German news service, DPA -- one day after Dick Cheney paid a visit to the kingdom.  As we noted, no one knows exactly what was said at that confab of allied authoritarians -- but something sure lit a fire under the Saudis, and convinced them that urgent action is needed to brace for the lethal overspill from a strike on Iran.

 

    Floyd points out that nothing in Saudi Arabia becomes the top news story without government approval.  That such a story should be released the day after Cheney's visit, sends a message to everyone about what’s on Cheney's mind.

 

    This, combined with the dismissal of Centcom chief, Admiral Fallon, Petreus' claim to have evidence (which he doesn't produce) that Iran was responsible for the recent shelling of the Green Zone,

 

. . and the Egyptian report that a nuclear sub has been ordered by Bush into the Gulf, the bleak picture in both Pakistan and Afghanistan (accelerating collapse of Musharraf's power and strategy, the coming spring offensive in the Taliban's announced drive for Kabu),

 

. . plus the oft-stated desire of Bush and Cheney to attack Iran, and, as noted by former mideast policy official William K. Polk at Juan Cole's site just a few days ago, the last time Cheney visited the nations he visited this time was right before the Iraq attack,

. . then only a moron would deny that Bush and Dick have nothing but contempt for the will of the people, congress and the courts, and that they crave war like a junkie craves his fix.

Cheney Visits them, and Saudis then Prepare for "Sudden Nuclear Hazards"

 

    One Tick Closer to Midnight

    Last Friday, Dick Cheney was in Saudi Arabia for high-level meetings with the Saudi king and his ministers.  On Saturday, it was revealed that the Saudi Shura Council -- the elite group that implements the decisions of the autocratic inner circle -- is preparing "national plans to deal with any sudden nuclear and radioactive hazards that may affect the kingdom following experts' warnings of possible attacks on Iran's Bushehr nuclear reactors," one of the kingdom's leading newspapers, Okaz, reports.  The German-based DPA news service relayed the paper's story.

 

    Simple prudence -- or ominous timing?  We noted here last week that an American attack on Iran was far more likely than most people suspect.  We pointed to the mountain of evidence for this case gathered by scholar William R. Polk, one of the top aides to John Kennedy during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and to other indicators of impending war.  The story by Okaz -- which would not have appeared in the tightly controlled dictatorship without approval from the top -- is yet another, very weighty piece of evidence laid on the scales, pointing toward a new, horrendous conflict.

 

    We don't know what the Saudis told Cheney in private -- or even more to the point, what he told them.  But the release of this story now, just after his departure, would seem to be a clear indication that the Saudis have good reason to fear a looming attack on Iran's nuclear facilities, and that they are actively preparing for it.
