(PRISON PLANET) Appearing on the Alex Jones Show today, former State Department official Steve Pieczenik said Israel and the United States will use the cartoonish terror plot invented by the DEA and the FBI now dominating headlines as a false flag pretext to wage war on Iran.
Pieczenik said Iran does not need to wage war within the United States and is more focused on confronting Israel through its Hezbollah proxy in Lebanon. He said the government of Benjamin Netanyahu and the reactionary Likud party are turning up the heat on the long simmering Iranian pretext – based on its alleged and undemonstrated nuclear weapons program – in order to take attention off demands by the Palestinians and a growing contingent at the United Nations for statehood. Israel, according to Pieczenik, also wants to distract its populace from a deteriorating domestic situation.
Moreover, the remarkably incompetent Obama administration is using the fallacious plot to divert attention from its involvement in the criminal Fast and Furious gun-running operation and Obama’s rapidly falling popularity rating as the election approaches. A growing number of Democrats are now talking about running a candidate other than Obama.
Like his predecessor, Obama will use the rally ’round the flag tactic to prop up his sagging popularity rating. Bush realized a boost after the attacks of September 11, 2001, and his invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.
In June, AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, renewed its push to convince the U.S. government that Iran is secretly developing nuclear weapons that threaten Israel. Pieczenik noted that AIPAC is instrumental in efforts to start what will amount to World War III. He said Israel has consistently manipulated AIPAC.
In September, it was reported that the Obama administration had approved the sale of 55 powerful GBU-28 Hard Target Penetrators, better known as bunker-buster bombs, to the Israeli government. The high-tech munitions, according to Newsweek, are deemed important to any future military strike against Iranian nuclear sites. The deal also includes a network of radar sites designed to help Israel ward off a missile attack, as well as joint military exercises and regular national-security consultations.
The Obama administration made the weapon and technology transfer under the cover of headline-grabbing and theatrical disagreements with the Jewish state over the Palestinian issue.
Pieczenik said cluster-bombs sent to Israel will be used to target Iranian airfields and immobilize its air force during the attack. In 2006, the U.S. said it would stop sending clusterbombs to Israel after the discovery of hundreds of US-made cluster bombs among the tens of thousands of unexploded munitions carpeting the south of Lebanon following Israel’s most recent invasion of its northern neighbor.
Finally, Pieczenik said “Israel is out of control” and “dysfunctional.” He said it is up to the people of Israel to go into the street and protest the actions of its government,.
The American people as well need to go into the street and protest the move toward World War III and also demand the impeachment of Obama, who deceptively portrayed himself as a peacekeeper during the election but immediately continued the wars and provocations of his predecessor.
