Revisiting 1981: Israel and a threatening Nuclear Option

June 7, 1981 is a year that must be revisited carefully. The rising rhetoric of the Bush Administration towards Iran requires one to look through another pair of 'glasses'. For years, the Bush administration, Cheney in particular, has been 'barking loudly' and beating its stick towards Iran. The rising display of deterrence toward Iran, known as Bush diplomacy, is absolutely frightening. Moving two more carrier strike groups into the Gulf , the recent arms sale to many Persian Gulf states and Israel, the announcement of 'blacklisting' the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Gen. Petraeus' expected 'pull back' not withdrawl of troops in Iraq to 'safer areas' are much more than mere coincidence. They are formulating their strategic plans for a preemptive military strike on Iran. They are provoking Iran into an incident. This would give them the means to justify their ultimate ends. The destruction of Iran's nuclear capability. Have we forgotten 1981?

On June 7th at 3:30 in the late afternoon, eight F­16 fighter bombers and six F­15 escorts hit their afterburners and soared off the runway from Etzion Air Force Base in southern Israel. Streaking low in the skies to avoid radar detection, the Israeli pilots bypassed Jordanian airspace and flew through Saudi Arabia to enter Iraqi air space unchallenged. Reaching their prescribed destination, at 5:35 PM, the pilots unleashed their devastation . Their target, the Iraqi Osirak nuclear facility on the outskirts of Baghdad.

5:37 PM,....the first preemptive military strike of a nuclear reactor in the world had been successful. The Osirak Nuclear Facility was destroyed. Deemed Operation Opera, it has been widely hailed as a complete success. Israel took the nod from many western governments that Iraq must not possess a nuclear capability and took action. They could not have a nation in the region who, at the time, was professing Israel's impending destruction. Saddam was screaming to the world the same absurd claims of Israels destruction, as Iranian President Abedinejad has been currently. Does one think that the world will let this continue?..will Israel?...the answer is NO.

Are you starting to see the similarities? This time the Bush Cabal has a much more prominent role. They are emboldened by already having almost our entire military in the Persian Gulf region. Iran WILL NOT be allowed to continue with their nuclear facilities and enrichment programs. IAEA regulations and UN resolutions move to slowly within our rapidly changing multi polar international world. The West wants to assert their supreme hegemony. The bureaucracy will tie up action within the UN and Israel and the west will have already acted. Cheney's 'meaningful consequences' will have occurred.They will not wait for approval.

"Given the fact that Iran has a stated policy that their objective is the destruction of Israel, the Israelis might well decide to act first, and let the rest of the world worry about cleaning up the diplomatic mess afterwards," Cheney said in 2005
"The Iranian regime needs to know that if it stays on its present course, the international community is prepared to impose meaningful consequences. (Applause.) For our part, the United States is keeping all options on the table in addressing the irresponsible conduct of the regime. (Applause.) And we join other nations in sending that regime a clear message: We will not allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon." full transcript
That will come after. After we've already entered in the "dark days of civilization" and presumptively placed the world into a generational "clash of civilizations".

Listen to their drumbeat...This is not the "last throes of the insurgency", this is not "mission accomplished", it's the beginning of a religious resistance. A struggle for survival. Iran will not play tit for tat..they will go for broke. War will be asymmetrical. Iran will unleash horrible consequences to the Bush Cabals 'oil driven west'. Iran will undoubtedly internationalize the conflict. We will have given them a true reason to chant their " Death to America". Think wisely..don't allow the subversion. Our planet depends on US. Stop watching Brittney and Kfed! the the historical record.
