Russian Def. Chief Warns About Nuke Attack on Iran

Former Russian Defence Chief Warns About US Nuclear Attack on Iran


comment by Larry Ross
Jan 25, 2007

Russian Ex-Chief of Defence, General Ivashov's analysis is very similar to many articles on our website and in my comments.

I think it is one of the most informed professional analysis so far of US intentions to nuclear bomb Iran. He even refers to a "provocation" (or False Flag incident staged by the Bush regime) to fool the Senate and Congress into giving their approval for a nuclear attack on Iran. Bush has already fooled them with a string of lies into approving his war on Iraq. Now Bush is ready to do it it again - but this time the Bush regime is likely to stage a very serious "provocation", as General Ivashov has stated, and blame it on Iran as a justification for a nuclear attack.

The article should convince people that now is the time to take action if they wish to prevent a US nuclear attack on Iran and all the disastrous consequences that can follow. There would be many. Waiting for this insane nuclear event before taking any action, would be like waiting for your house to burn down before you called the fire department, turned on the hose, or got fire insurance. According to Ivashov and others, we may have only about 2 months to stop Bush. Things that people and groups can consider doing to help prevent an attack are shown on our website below.

If Bush is not stopped and launches the attack, the war momentum and slaughter can trigger a sequence of disastrous actions and reactions that can spiral out of control. There are 8 to 9 nuclear weapon states, some may be drawn into a major war that could spread beyond the middle east. Both Russia and China have strong defence links with Iran and each have nuclear weapon arsenals. I doubt if they would stay idle while the US conquered Iran, leading to US control of middle east oil resources. Also, Pakistan and other Islamic states may erupt if the US slaughters millions of Muslims with nuclear weapons. Keep in mind that the Bush regime has no legitimate reasons for attacking Iran, anymore than it had for attacking Iraq. It manufactured excuses and lies to attack Iraq and is now engaged in doing the same to justify the attack on Iran. The Iraq war made the Bush regime war criminals. They are now desparate and self-justifying criminals wrappped in the flag and other symbols of patriotism. Bush claims God directs him. Even so, they have less than 30% of Americans supporting them. The Bush-Chaney regime have been compared to desparate cornered animals who will resort to any crime to survive.

They will go on to bigger crimes unless stopped. It is part of their plan. The only big difference is that the US is likely to create a much larger and much more convincing excuse to use nuclear weapons against a non-nuclear state - Iran. If a convincing event is staged, Americans will believe Bush and be fooled again. They will support Bush's use of nuclear weapons against the 'treacherous evil Iranians' and his popularity rating will soar. Few Americans are aware of potential 'false flag' operations against Iran and other provocations with the purpose of providing Bush with justifications to attack Iran.

The Washington neoconservative Bush regime, so far supported by Tony Blair and UK forces, and John Howard and Australian forces, and their mass media collaborators, seem willing to take any risks to further their military objectives and conquests.

There may be only 2 months to prevent this nuclear doomsday scenario.
