Neocon Plot To Nuke Iran Invites Catastrophe

John Bolton, a notorious

warmonger who could not be confirmed as
America`s ambassador to the UN by even the compliant and
corrupt US Senate, got the job as a recess appointment.
He is using the platform to push America into war with

Bolton told the Financial Times
(June 9) that the Bush Regime has no intention of
reaching an agreement with Iran. Time is running out for
diplomacy, Bolton told the Financial Times. Iran
has a short time remaining in which it can give up its
right under the non- proliferation treaty to enrich
uranium for nuclear energy or be attacked. Bolton said
that US security guarantees for Iran "were not on the

There is no evidence that Iran has
a nuclear weapons program. Every physicist knows that
the enrichment requirement for weapons is many times
greater than for nuclear energy and that Iran can barely
achieve the latter. Despite the facts, Bolton told the
Financial Times: "They`ve [Iran] got both feet
on the accelerator, which is why we have a sense of
urgency. Each day that goes by gives Iran more time to
continue to perfect its efforts for mass production."
rejects `grand bargain` with Iran

Bolton is lying through his teeth.
Bush Regime lies about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction
and propagandistic references to mushroom clouds
convinced the befuddled American public to accept an
illegal invasion of Iraq. The same collection of neocon
war criminals is again deceiving the American public
about Iran.

In his remarks to the Financial
, Bolton shows himself to be extremely
disturbed by the prospect that the diplomatic efforts of
Europe, Russia, and China could undermine the Bush
Regime`s plan to attack Iran. Bolton is doing everything
possible to make certain that there is no diplomatic

To help undermine any prospect for
peace in the Middle East, Israeli gunboats shelled a
public beach and killed or wounded 50 Palestinians. This
was done in order to provoke Hamas into abandoning the
long-established cease-fire that Hamas had imposed in
the interest of negotiating a Palestinian settlement.

The Israeli government succeeded,
and now there will a resurgence of "Hamas terrorism"
that Bolton and his neocon compatriots can use to build
a frightening spectacle of Muslim terrorism.

The Bush/Olmert axis-of-evil have
made it clear that "we don`t want no stinking peace."

Writing in (June
), University of California

Professor Jorge Hirsch
explains the tripwire that
the Bush Regime has laid for Iran in order to have an
excuse to launch an attack on that country. Just as the
Bush Regime planned to attack Iraq and then orchestrated
a case based on lies, the Bush Regime has already
planned to attack Iran. Only this time nuclear weapons
will be used.

Nuking Iran is an essential part of
the attack plan. The US lacks the necessary conventional
military force to invade and occupy Iran, but the use of
nuclear weapons against Iran has a wider purpose. The
neocons are determined not to have any more
embarrassments, such as the Iraqi insurgency. By nuking
Iran they intend to send a wider message that the US
will use every means at its disposal to ensure its
hegemony. The neocons believe that the use of nukes will
convince Arabs and the wider world that there is no
recourse to accepting America`s will.

The neoconservatives could not care
less about public opinion. Neocons are contemptuous of
the American people. Leo Strauss taught neocons that it
was their duty to deceive the clueless American people
in order to implement their agenda of global domination.
The neocons believe that they have a perfect right, even
the obligation, to manipulate the public through
propaganda and black ops in order to create acceptance
and support for their wars of aggression.

Neocons are the epitome of evil,
and they have succumbed to hubris. Like Hitler when he
attacked the Soviet Union, neocons believe that their
manipulative skills and use of military power will carry
the day for their agenda. Hitler`s hubris doomed Germany
to destruction. What price will America pay for neocon

When the neocon Nazis nuke Iran it
will revive memories in Japan and break the US-Japanese
alliance. Japan owns enough US Treasury bonds to be able
to destroy both the US dollar and the market for
Washington`s endless red ink. Russia, China, India, and
even our European lackeys will have it forcefully
brought home to them that the US is an out-of-control
rogue nation. They will unify against us. Most likely
our bought and paid for puppets in the Middle East will
fall, and Islamic leaders will gain Pakistan`s nuclear
weapons. Al Qaeda will gain tens of millions of

Francis Fukuyama`s phrase, "the
end of history
takes on new meaning.
