    Unelected corporate-funded policy makers constitute the greatest threat to US national security.

    by Tony Cartalucci

    October 16, 2011 - While US politicians grapple over the credibility of using the US DEA's bomb plot to assassinate a Saudi ambassador as a pretext to escalate tensions with Iran, America's unelected, corporate-funded policy makers have already announced their long, foregone conclusion. The DEA's entrapment case is decidedly to be used as a pretext for war with Iran.

    The Foreign Policy Institute (FPI), just one such unelected, corporate-funded think tank, has released two statements calling on President Obama to use force against Iran. FPI director William Kristol states:

    "It’s long since been time for the United States to speak to this regime in the language it understands—force.

    And now we have an engraved invitation to do so. The plot to kill the Saudi ambassador was a lemon. Statesmanship involves turning lemons into lemonade.

    So we can stop talking. Instead, we can follow the rat lines in Iraq and Afghanistan back to their sources, and destroy them. We can strike at the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and weaken them. And we can hit the regime’s nuclear weapons program, and set it back."

    Likewise, FPI's executive director Jamie Fly claims, in tandem with Kristol's unqualified, corporate-funded opinion, "It is time to take military action against the Iranian government elements that support terrorism and its nuclear program. More diplomacy is not an adequate response."

    I am not saying at this time whether I agree or disagree with it. But with everything I am hearing, once we withdraw from Iraq/Afghanistan, it might not be too long until we are in Korea/Iran/Pakistan, or some combination of the three.

    These last two wars have been 'on the credit card'; our grandchildren and their children are already trillions of dollars in debt before they're even born.
    Who's gonna loan us the money to fight yet another war for Israel ? (yea, that's exactly what a war with Iran will be about)

    If history indicates the future, then we will NEVER actually withdraw from Iraq or Iran, unless we are overran like we were in Saigon.

    Some Christian Americans believe that our helping Israel is the only thing that is keeping God's total judgement off of America. Any thoughts?

    I tend to disagree on certain points

    The Israel we see today(religiously and politically) is not the Israel we see in the Old Testament

    The Israel we see today(religiously and politically) is not the Israel we read of in the book of Revelation-------Ezekial's "Valley of Dry Bones" is still just that-----Dry Bones

    The United States' "word" to Israel as far as military protection----things we hear such as ---- an attack upon Israel is an attack upon the United States ----- is no different than the British "word" they kept to Poland at the outbreak of WW2-----except for the fact that the UK KEPT her word to Poland----I'm quiet sure at this point---with the POTUS we have today-----I'm quiet sure we would "cow down" to the Palestianians or the Syrians or whoever other nation decided and committed and actually engages Israel in an all out attack such as what was witnessed in the '67 war and in the '73 war

    Withdrawal of US Troops From Iraq Highly Suspect

    Possible Scenarios

    The US is at least peddling the illusion it is clearing out its holdings in Iraq, leaving a symbolic force for a reason - a reason that has to do with a final gambit to be played against Iran, the last domino to fall in the US-contrived "Arab Spring." These are two possible scenarios:

    1. Leave a small symbolic force for the Iranians to attack in Iraq after a "unilateral" Israeli airstrike. Whatever Iran decides to do, it may not be able to do sustainably, but will do viciously in the opening phases. By leaving a symbolic force in Iraq, the US can garner the necessary sympathy and anger politically at home to launch a wider operation against Iran in "retaliation."

    2. Feign as if the US is disengaging from the Middle East so when a false flag terror attack or other provocation is perpetrated against the US, it will look like an egregious act of war by Iran. While a shrinking US presence in the Middle East would logically engender even more patience in Tehran, the script writers of the latest DEA-Saudi bomb plot took special care to ensure the "Iran has become bolder" talking-point made it repetitively on air and into the minds of unsuspecting Americans.

    This is more than mere idle speculation. In the Brookings Institution report, "Which Path to Persia?" nearly all but the most extreme measures proposed in the report have been executed. The only options left on the table unused include a unilateral Israeli airstrike designed to provoke a significant retaliation thus bringing the US into war with Iran and a variety of options to provoke a full-scale invasion.

    CONTINUE . . .

    If y'all really want to know how it's going to turn out why not just read the playbook?

    Couple questions for Sapper Woody, now that yov'e been enlightened on who your superiors are taking their orders from (corporate fascists) how willing are you to keep taking orders from them?

    What does it feel like to lay your life on the line for a lie everyday? I'm not trying to be disrespectful or anything I'd just like to know if you think serving a gaggle of global banksters and corporitos who care nothing of the well being of your country or countrymen is still such an honor?
