Deflating the HYPE - Can the Seemingly Imminent War with Iran be Stopped?
March 2, 2012
Unfortunately, it now appears that a war between the US and its allies with Iran is imminent. By any military analyst's assessment this has a real chance of changing the current multi-theatre war against terrorism and so called rogue/terrorist states into a real World War III scenario!
Following the Mainstream media (MSM) in the West over the last few months, you would be sensing that many things have happened to support the war-with-Iran rationale: hearing that Iran wants a Nuclear bomb and would be prepared to use it against Israel and the US, other alarming stories include Iran trading in weapons with "rogue states," Iran killing innocent people abroad, Iran's president is insane and wants to "wipe Israel off the map," Iran has been involved in terrorist plots/bombings and may attack inside the US and Iran is trading drugs. The list of baseless accusation goes on and on.
Interesting to remember that after 9/11 the MSM did little to question the actual events and who benefited but devoted massive media speculation to Iraq being involved while no evidence existed, managing to convince the vast majority of the American public that Saddam was involved with the 9/11 attacks leading to growing public support for the 2003 invasion.
Many times over the last decade it was obvious by the rhetoric out of Washington and from their many think tanks like PNAC (The Project for the New American Century) and leaked memos from the Pentagon that the Caspian Basin would be central to their future plans of an expanding Empire. The only obstacle was then generating the public and political support to do so. Prophetically, the Neo-con document "Rebuilding America's Defences (year 2000)" had said a "New Pearl Harbour" type event was required for this purpose and then, very conveniently, it happened on September 11 2001. This facilitated the new American Empire they wanted by enraging the US population to a war mentality and allowing massive budget increases.
It was soon obvious which countries were marked for "regime change" or worse in the Middle East, including Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Iran. The most probable reasons for the desire to control these countries was to complete its dominance of the Caspian Basin oil reserves, protect its allies, Israel and Saudi Arabia, and to ultimately usurp any possible arrangements between Iran, China, India and Russia that could threaten the trading of oil in US dollars. In my opinion, the US deep state believes if oil rich countries get the idea they can trade direct with sovereign nations without using the US dollar, the US Empire will certainly be finished -- well, economically at least. If this means the death of millions in the Middle East and of tens of thousands of their own troops by these wars then that's fine with them as long as they keep control of the oil trade.
So let's look at the picture being painted at present, i.e., the hype and propaganda versus the actual situation and why this confrontation is now apparently imminent.
- Iran has no Nuclear Weapons Program says all US and western intelligence agencies
The propaganda and hype:
- Mainstream Media (MSM) support the Neo-con agenda that Iranians are "determined to become a nuclear power," are "crazy" and will use it
So there's the background; now to the question: 'Can the war with Iran be stopped' by rational actors calling for truth and sanity in the face of such propaganda produced by strong Neo-Con/Israeli control of the media, the US Congress and even within the UN itself? Can we deflate the hype?
Well, I would say it's unlikely with the current state of the paralysed Peace Movement and completely controlled MSM worldwide. But I do believe with a raising of awareness in the general public as to exactly how dangerous this war could be for us all, both physically and economically, it is possible to put a stop to the Neo-con/Israeli plan once again. Also, the broad awareness that 9/11 and other pretexts to war are not what we are told has weakened the popular support of governments pushing for wars without proper investigation of the events that lead to them.
I have found that the argument against a war with Iran leading to a possible WWIII is very easy to make, even if you propose it to those who support the US Empire's control of the Caspian Basin or its support of Israel because turning the Middle East into one big war theatre by a likely confrontation between the US and China/Russia is obvious madness. This only makes sense to a few warmongering power elite who care little for life, the progress towards peace or the stability of the region. As hard as it is to conceive, there are people controlling America who have always been prepared to risk nuclear war, seriously thinking they can win and rule the world.
I personally recently decided to start a process to address this situation in Sydney, Australia by organising a truth awareness rally. See Say NO to a WAR with Iran! Deflate the WAR HYPE with Truth Awareness
