Iran – Part 2
Post under construction
Refer to my other blog ‘Iran – Part 1’ for other points of note (link in footnotes).
Just some of the BBC’s recent headlines continuously fired at an unsuspecting giant mass of worn-out Westerners between ‘Master Chef’ quarter finals and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s ‘River Cottage’ :
- The assassination on Wednesday of another Iranian nuclear scientist may now prompt Iran to try to respond in kind.
Almost all of Western media have referred to Jan 11, 2012’s victim as a nuclear scientist. In fact the victim, Mustafa Ahmadi Roshan was a 32 year old with a degree in Chemical Engineering.
The assassination took place near one of the main buildings of the Intelligence Ministry, i.e in a zone where there is even further extra security. MOSSAD / MI6 / CIA it’s all one in the same.
- Iran has threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz – a key route from the Gulf through which 20% of the world’s traded oil passes. US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta warned on Sunday that such a move would cross a “red line” and “we would take action and reopen the strait”.
Leon who?… ‘Habibollah Sayyari’ (chief of the Iranian navy), responded to the allegation on Iranian state television – “No order was given for the closure of the Strait of Hormuz. But we are prepared for various scenarios.”
It seems from my reading that US Naval ships are in and out of this straight trying to antagonise Iran who naturally keep tabs on what ships are passing through the area.
- Iran said it had increased the enrichment of uranium from the 3.5% needed for commercial nuclear reactors to the 10-20% needed for a research reactor near Tehran. Weapons-grade uranium is at least 90% enriched. Achieving 20% was a key step towards weapons grade uranium, Western experts say.
God… Sod off.
Gotta love these western experts. It’s like something out of Hansel and Gretel. Off we skip into the Middle East sucking our thumbs, ‘James’ from Salford jumping up and down with excitement*.
It’s Leon Panetta again look.
Leon Panetta admitted on national television that Iran is not, in fact, developing nuclear weapons, yet still justified the Western assault on their nuclear program.
Yesterday on the CBS show ‘Face the Nation’ Panetta stated, in no uncertain terms, that Iran is not trying to develop a nuclear weapon, making one wonder why the United States and the United Nations feel justified in pressuring Iran.
United States Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta openly admitted on national television that Iran is not, in fact, developing nuclear weapons, yet still justified the Western assault on their nuclear program.
“Are they [Iran] trying to develop a nuclear weapon?”
“Uh, no,” Panetta said, adding, “but we know that they are trying to develop a nuclear capability.
Nothing is hidden from you.
So who is he.
Leon Panetta : Knight of Malta, ‘Roman Catholic’, Santa Clara University, Military (‘honorably’ discharged), ‘Democratic’ Party 1971-Present, ‘Republican’ Party prior to 1971, sponsored faithfully by ‘Monterey’s Cannery Row & Co’, US Defence Secretary 2011 – ?, CIA – Director 2009-2011, White House Chief of Staff 1994-1997, Office of Management & Budget 1993-1994, Receiver of some sort of award on an almost annual basis eg ‘Award for Distinguished Public Service 1993’, Baker Commission 2006 (aka Iraq Study Group), supported U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan which he identified as the “most effective weapon” against senior ‘Al-Qaeda leadership’. Attacks increased significantly under Panetta with as many as 50 suspected ‘Al-Qaeda militants’ being killed in May 2009, Chairman of the Task Force on Domestic Hunger created by the U.S. House Select Committee on Hunger (surely America’s hungry know who he is), Blue Shield of California – director, Zenith National Insurance Corp – director, was entrusted the responsibility of dispatching the USS Enterprise on the 23rd January 2012, said “Iran is not trying to develop a nuclear weapon” on CBS Jan 2012.
It’s great when you see these arseholes jump from one government to the next so’s they can cling onto their little slice of being able to feel important and the financial comfort it provides ay… or worse.
Unqualified for the position he holds but has long proved himself trustworthy. So his cv was decorated with hunting-trophies under the guise of ‘al Quaida militants’ and the alleged death of ‘oSama bIn lADen / ‘O’sam a ‘b’In ‘l’A-den’ / Sam A In A-den / Uncle sam in hiding / American in hiding – (always try dropping the first letter as instinct in order to better understand the code), to make his transition first to CIA Director then US Defence Secretary all the more plausible.
Contract for just two drones is worth a $1.6 billion and Northrup Grumman expects to manufacture 68 more. Price is still being negotiated but you’re talking 54.5 billion USD / 27.2 billion GBP.
The new drones are to “help prevent Iranian vessels packed with explosives from swarming American vessels.” See how they concoct threats out of thin air for absurd military spending and intervention. I mean, you couldn’t make this shit up.
Jobs for the boys.
Wesley G. Bush : Northrop Grumman Corporation – CEO / President / Director, Forbes ranked in the 200’s, National Infrastructure Advisory Council – member, Conservation International – director, In bed with William B. Harrison Jr. (JPMorgan Chase & Co / also listed), Titan II Inc – Director (subsidiary of Northrop Grumman), Aerospace Industries Association – Board, wiki page was removed in 2009|
Raytheon are also holding their hands out :
14th January 2012
Raytheon Company completed its first Configuration-3 Patriot radar upgrade for the State of Kuwait. This is the first of six radar modernization deliveries due under contract to the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command (dated 2nd January).
24th January 2012
Raytheon Company has received a $145 million Foreign Military Sales production contract for Patriot Guidance Enhanced Missiles – Tactical (GEM-T) to augment Kuwait’s air and missile defense.
The U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command, Redstone Arsenal, Ala., issued the contract to complement Kuwait’s Configuration-3 radar system upgrade work already underway at Raytheon.
Raytheon was founded by ‘Vannevar Bush’ and two other cretins. Vannevar Bush died in 1974.
John M. Deutch : (CIA / Chemicals / Clinton Laccy / General Creeping), CFR, Trilateral Commission, Citigroup – Board, Cummins – Board, Raytheon – Board, Schlumberger Ltd – Board, President Clinton pardoned Deutch on his last day in office over CIA ‘classified materials’, United States Deputy Secretary Of Defence 1994-1995, Former Director of CIA underneath The Clintons,
Raytheon’s money from death trickles out all over the place. William H. Swanson is the current CEO who’s also linked with the CIA but is very much kept in line by his ‘betters’ it seems.
Always at it you can imagine :
14th December 2011
Raytheon Company has received a $685.7 million Foreign Military Sales (FMS) contract for additional new fire units of the combat-proven Patriot Air and Missile Defense System for Taiwan.
