Infamy in the Making, and Advice from Another President

Nothing I could write today would have the impact which this story should have on all who have any interest in the survival the United States. Unfortunately it is not a new story, but just a more detailed confirmation of earlier predictions.

I will repeat once more that we must cut ourselves free of Israel and its war aims.


"Revealed: Israel plans nuclear strike on Iran
Uzi Mahnaimi, New York and Sarah Baxter, Washington



"ISRAEL has drawn up secret plans to destroy Iran’s uranium enrichment facilities with tactical nuclear weapons.
Two Israeli air force squadrons are training to blow up an Iranian facility using low-yield nuclear “bunker-busters”, according to several Israeli military sources.



"The attack would be the first with nuclear weapons since 1945, when the United States dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Israeli weapons would each have a force equivalent to one-fifteenth of the Hiroshima bomb.

"Under the plans, conventional laser-guided bombs would open “tunnels” into the targets. “Mini-nukes” would then immediately be fired into a plant at Natanz, exploding deep underground to reduce the risk of radioactive fallout.

“'As soon as the green light is given, it will be one mission, one strike and the Iranian nuclear project will be demolished,' said one of the sources.

"The plans, disclosed to The Sunday Times last week, have been prompted in part by the Israeli intelligence service Mossad’s assessment that Iran is on the verge of producing enough enriched uranium to make nuclear weapons within two years.

"Israeli military commanders believe conventional strikes may no longer be enough to annihilate increasingly well-defended enrichment facilities. Several have been built beneath at least 70ft of concrete and rock. However, the nuclear-tipped bunker-busters would be used only if a conventional attack was ruled out and if the United States declined to intervene, senior sources said.

"Israeli and American officials have met several times to consider military action. Military analysts said the disclosure of the plans could be intended to put pressure on Tehran to halt enrichment, cajole America into action or soften up world opinion in advance of an Israeli attack.

"Some analysts warned that Iranian retaliation for such a strike could range from disruption of oil supplies to the West to terrorist attacks against Jewish targets around the world."

(Who is going to bomb Israel's nuclear facilities? All Iran has is an embryonic nuclear power generation program. Israel could destroy the entire Middle East.)

Now, listen to this timely advice, from George Washington’s Farewell Address, 1796, which appears to have been completely forgotten. (As you read the following, which I beg you to do even though it looks like a school assignment, try substituting “Israel” for “favorite”.)


“Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all. . . . It will be worthy of a free, enlightened, and . . . great nation, to give to mankind the magnanimous and too novel example of a people always guided by an exalted justice and benevolence.

In the execution of such a plan, nothing is more essential than that permanent, inveterate antipathies against particular nations, and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated. The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest. Antipathy in one nation against another disposes each more readily to offer insult and injury . . . and to be haughty and intractable, when accidental or trifling occasions of dispute occur. Hence, frequent collisions, obstinate, envenomed, and bloody contests. The nation, prompted by ill-will and resentment, sometimes impels to war the government, contrary to the best calculations of policy.

So likewise, a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification. It leads also to concessions to the favorite nation of privileges denied to others which is apt doubly to injure the nation making the concessions; by unnecessarily parting with what ought to have been retained, and by exciting jealousy, ill-will, and a disposition to retaliate, in the parties from whom equal privileges are withheld. And it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluded citizens (who devote themselves to the favorite nation), facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country, without odium, sometimes even with popularity. . .

Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence . . . the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government. But that jealousy to be useful must be impartial; else it becomes the instrument of the very influence to be avoided, instead of a defense against it. Excessive partiality for one foreign nation and excessive dislike of another cause those whom they actuate to see danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts of influence on the other. Real patriots who may resist the intrigues of the favorite are liable to become suspected and odious, while its tools and dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people, to surrender their interests."

That one paragraph subsituting Israel for "favorite" is outstanding. . .Maybe a clue from the past. Scary too! It could stand alone and be a perfect description of what is going on today and ya know something?? No one would even guess it was originally written by George Washington. Fleming, how clever!

This is an important entry although the plans of the Zionists to unilaterally and criminally attempt to alter the international balance of power once again should come as no surprise, if one remembers a similar attack on Iraq in June of 1981 when the Zionists destroyed the Osirak nuclear reactor.

It is amazing that the world cannot see the bullying nature of the illegal Zionist regime, and its flagrant disregard of international law as well as fundamental morality. A Zionist 'defence analyst and columnist' for Haaretz told the AP that esposure of the Zionist plans to attack Iran was: 'a leak done on purpose, as deterrence, to say: 'Someone better hold us back, before we do something crazy.'

'Stop me before I do something crazy by giving me what I demand,' is the traditional cry of the abuser in any relationship or of a serial killer who places the onus on the 'authorities' to keep him/her 'reasonable' and force him/her to act within the boundaries set by society and the law. Since its inception, the Zionist entity has demonstrated total contempt with respect to international law and a refusal to be influenced or bound by ordinary considerations of justice or humanity.

Typically, in this particular case, the majority who actually read about this plan will be incredulous and continue to believe in the usual pro-Zionist propaganda. The Zionists, for their part, will act quickly and brutally and by the time any one begins to believe in the possibility that it might attack another sovereign nation, the attack will have been completed...

Moreover, even after the Zionist entity has USED nuclear weapons in an attack, most people in the U.S. will continue to deny the existence of a Zionist nuclear arsenal. So far does this political blindness extend!

Like the attack on the reactor at Osirak, like the attacks on the U.N. camp at Qana, like the kidnapping and assassination of individuals by Mossad throughout the world, like the sinking of the U.S.S. Liberty (American citizens, no less!)... no amount of evidence apparently makes any difference! People either are intimidated or blackmailed into silence or acquiescence to the crimes committed by the Zionist regime. Americans will continue to supply the Zionists with its weapons of mass destruction and to pay for its genocidal programme against the Palestinian people and wonder why much of the world 'hates Americans'.

Nabila, your comment is a welcome expansion and elaboration of my post which I hope all readers will see. Here is the last line from my quotation of Washington's farewell address, appropriately updated:

"Real patriots who may resist the intrigues of Israel are liable to become suspected and odious, while Israel's American tools and dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the American people, to surrender the people's interests."

O Nabila, I cannot speak for the whole world obviously but I feel I am one of the ordinary millions who can see what the Zionist regime is, only too clearly. If I could get rid of Tony Blair any quicker than he intends to leave office (perhaps 5 months time) I would and I think the British people as a whole feel the same, as he has betrayed democracy in his own country by playing the loyal supporter in everything to Bush.
