Tensions Between U.S., Israeli, British and Iranian Warships

The U.S. and Israel are conducting their largest-ever joint warfare exercises [2] near Iran. And see this [3].

England is sending its most advanced ship – the HMS Daring [4] – to the region.

Only days after finishing its last wargames in the Strait of Hormuz, Iran has announced another set of wargames [5] in February.

What Could Go Wrong?

Looking behind the headlines:

-The people pushing for war against Iran are the same neocons who pushed for war against Iraq.  See this [6] and this [7].

-China and Russia have warned that attacking Iran could lead to World War III [8].

-War against Iran was planned at least 20 years ago [9].

-The U.S. has been claiming for more than 30 years [10] that Iran was on the verge of nuclear capability (and the U.S. apparently helped fund [11] the Iranian nuclear program.)

-The sinking of the USS Maine, the Gulf of Tonkin [12] incident, and other justifications for past wars have turned out to be false. Similarly, a number of high-level intelligence officials and politicians [12] have said that the U.S. would fake a provocation and blame it on Iran as a casus belli. For example, Ron Paul has warned [13] of a “Gulf of Tonkin type incident” in Iran, and Pulitzer-prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh says many ideas have been proposed for provoking a war, including building boats that look like Iranian boats, and then putting Navy Seals on them to “start a shoot-up” [14]

-The CIA admits [15] that it hired Iranians in the 1950′s to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected prime minister.   Pulitzer-prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh says that the Bush administration (and especially Dick Cheney) helped to fund terrorist groups within Iran [16] (see confirming articles here [17] and here [18]). And theNew York Times [19]Washington Post [20] and others are reporting, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, former national security adviser Fran Townsend and former Attorney General Michael Mukasey – who all said that the terrorists were going to get us if we didn’t jettison the liberties granted under the Bill of Rights – are now supporting terrorists in Iran.

-Endless war is bankrupting America and harming our national security [21].

-The war against Iran has already begun. See this [22]this [23] and this [24].

What could possibly go wrong?
