US-NATO-Israel War Plans directed against Iran: Selected Articles

[Scroll down for Selected Articles]

We bring to the attention of our readers a selection of recent news as well background feature articles on US-NATO-Israel war plans directed against Iran.

In recent developments, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has sought cabinet support for a military strike against Iran 

Meanwhile, the British government has also signified that were Washington “to fast-forward plans for targeted missile strikes” against the Islamic Republic, Her Majesty’s government would support the Obama administration’s resolve for a pre-emptive attack on Iran.

A War on Iran has been on the drawing board of The Pentagon since 2004.

Iran’s alleged nuclear weapons programme is the pretext and the justification. Tehran is also identified as a “State sponsor of terrorism”, for allegedly supporting the Al Qaeda network.

In recent development, what is unfolding is an integrated attack plan on Iran led by the US, with the participation of the United Kingdom and Israel.

Humanity is at a dangerous crossroads

Central to an understanding of war, is the media campaign which grants it legitimacy in the eyes of public opinion. A good versus evil dichotomy prevails. The perpetrators of war are presented as the victims. Public opinion is misled:

”Breaking the “big lie” which upholds war as a humanitarian undertaking, means breaking a criminal project of global destruction, in which the quest for profit is the overriding force.

This selection of articles portrays a diabolical and far-reaching military agenda, which in the real sense of the word, threatens the future of humanity.

We call upon Global Research readers to spread the word far and wide.

What is required is the development of a broad and well organized grassroots antiwar network, across the land, nationally and internationally, which challenges the structures of power and authority.

War and Globalization are intimately related.

America’s War’s of Economic Conquest seek to recolonize countries through military action, confiscate their assets, take over their oil reserves … 

Meanwhile, another form of warfare is unfolding: The Free Market system and its neoliberal policy are conducive to the destabilization of entire national economies. “Economic Warfare” led by creditor banks, institutional speculators, hedge funds and international financial institutions is conducive to spearheading entire national economies into bankruptcy.

While the Western elites’ political handlers impose draconian austerity measures in the name of democracy, the Pentagon, the Atlantic Alliance, the Western intelligence apparatus and Israel’s high command are meeting behind closed doors:  War preparations directed against Syria and Iran are in an advanced state of readiness.  

There are at present four distinct war theaters: Afghanistan-Pakistan, Iraq, Palestine and Libya.

Were a US-NATO-Israel military operation to be launched against either Syria or Iran, the broader Middle East Central Asian region extending from North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean to the Afghanistan-Pakistan border with China would be engulfed in the turmoil of an extended regional war.

Forward this selection of articles. Share it on Facebook and Twitter.

Forcefully announce your antiwar stance before rather than in the wake of the attack…

This war can be prevented if people confront their governments, pressure their elected representatives, organize at the local level in towns, villages and municipalities, spread the word, inform their fellow citizens as to the implications of a nuclear war, initiate debate and discussion within the armed forces.

The objective is to forcefully reverse the tide of war, challenge the war criminals in high office and the powerful corporate lobby groups which support them.
