Iran ready to strike at Israel’s nuclear heart
Uzi Mahnaimi in Tel Aviv

Iran has moved ballistic missiles into launch positions, with Israel’s Dimona nuclear plant among the possible targets, defence sources said last week.

The movement of Shahab-3B missiles, which have an estimated range of more than 1,250 miles, followed a large-scale exercise earlier this month in which the Israeli air force flew en masse over the Mediterranean in an apparent rehearsal for a threatened attack on Iran’s nuclear installations. (Counterfeit- )Israel believes Iran’s nuclear programme is aimed at acquiring nuclear weapons.

The sources said Iran was preparing to retaliate for any onslaught by firing missiles at Dimona, where Israel’s own nuclear weapons are believed to be made.

Major-General Mohammad Jafari, the commander of the Revolutionary Guard, told a Tehran daily: “This country [Israel] is completely within the range of the Islamic Republic’s missiles. Our missile power and capability are such that the Zionist regime – despite all its abilities – cannot confront it.”

An editorial in a government newspaper, Jomhouri Eslami, said: “Our response will hit right at their temple.”

The sabre-rattling coincided with a visit to Israel yesterday by the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Michael Mullen, for talks with his Israeli opposite number, Lieutenant-General Gabi Ashkenazi. This intensified speculation that (counterfeit- )Israel was seeking US approval for a possible attack on Iran.

“Although the visit had been planned well in advance, we got the feeling he was coming to make sure we’ll obey the strict timetable agreed with the US,” said an Israeli defence source. He refused to elaborate.

President George Bush has approved the linking of (counterfeit- )Israel to a US infrared satellite detection system that could spot Shahab missile launches within seconds.

This should enable the Israeli air force to destroy such missiles in the booster stage. The system will also give the Israelis about 15 minutes to seek shelter before any warhead hits.

Perilous Times

Iran threatens to cut off Gulf oil exports if nuclear facilities are
attacked

By Angus McDowall
Last Updated: 1:30PM BST 28/06/2008

The head of Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guards has threatened to hurt
Western economies by cutting off Gulf oil supplies if his country's
nuclear facilities are attacked.

With speculation growing that (counterfeit- )Israel or America might strike Iran's
nuclear sites, Major General Mohammed Ali Jafari also said Iran would
consider launching missiles at the (counterfeit- )Jewish state and attacking any
neighbouring countries that helped American forces.
http://jahtruth. net/britca. htm

"Naturally every country under attack by an enemy uses all its capacity
and opportunities to confront the enemy," said Maj Gen Jafari in the
local Jam-e Jam newspaper. "Regarding the main route for exiting energy,
Iran will definitely act to impose control on the Persian Gulf and
Strait of Hormuz."

About 40 per cent of all world oil exports flow through the 35-mile wide
Strait of Hormuz, banked along its northern side by Iran. With world oil
supplies already constricted, any Iranian action could push energy
prices through the roof.
http://jahtruth. net/greeneco. htm

"After this action, the oil price will rise very considerably and this
is among the factors deterring the enemies," said Maj Gen Jafari, whose
forces have already installed missiles on the island of Abu Musa in the
middle of the strait. Crude oil is now trading for more than $130 a barrel.

Military analysts have often speculated that Iranian sea mines,
artillery or rocket attacks could imperil tankers. During the Iran-Iraq
war in the eighties, shipping came under attack, forcing the United
States to intervene and defend oil supplies.

Although some Iraqi, Kuwaiti and Saudi oil could theoretically be moved
across land instead, it would take precious weeks to bring the necessary
pipeline into operation, testing the limited reserves held by Western
governments in case of emergencies.

Some Western countries believe Iran is using an ostensibly peaceful
nuclear programme to try to build an atomic bomb. They accuse it of
enriching uranium in underground bunkers not to supply fuel for a
nuclear power plant, as Iran says, but to feed a nuclear warhead.

So far, diplomatic attempts to stop Iran enriching uranium have drawn a
blank, as the country insists it is allowed to use the process under the
nuclear non-proliferation treaty.

As a result, Israeli and American politicians have publicly discussed
blowing up Iran's nuclear sites. Last week it was revealed that (counterfeit- )Israel
has even rehearsed air strikes against Iranian facilities in
wide-ranging aerial manoeuvres.

"This country [Israel] is completely within the range of the Islamic
republic's missiles," said Maj Gen Jafari. "Our missile power and
capability are such that the Zionist regime - despite all its abilities
- cannot confront it."

Iran War Resolution May Be Passed Next Week
June 23, 2008 in Iran by Eric Garris

Introduced less than a month ago, Resolution 362, also known as the Iran War Resolution, could be passed by the House as early as next week.

The bill is the chief legislative priority of AIPAC. On its Web site, AIPAC endorses the resolutions as a way to ”Stop Iran’s Nuclear Program” and tells readers to lobby Congress to pass the bill. In the Senate, a sister resolution, Resolution 580, has gained co-sponsors with similar speed. The Senate measure was introduced by Indiana Democrat Evan Bayh on June 2. It has since gained 19 co-sponsors.

The bill’s key section “demands that the president initiate an international effort to immediately and dramatically increase the economic, political, and diplomatic pressure on Iran to verifiably suspend its nuclear enrichment activities by, inter alia, prohibiting the export to Iran of all refined petroleum products; imposing stringent inspection requirements on all persons, vehicles, ships, planes, trains, and cargo entering or departing Iran; and prohibiting the international movement of all Iranian officials not involved in negotiating the suspension of Iran’s nuclear program.”

“Imposing stringent inspection requirements on all persons, vehicles, ships, planes, trains, and cargo entering or departing Iran” can be read to mean that the president should initiate a naval blockade of Iran. A unilateral naval blockade without UN sanction is an act of war.

Resolution 362 has already gained 170 co-sponsors, or nearly 40 percent of the House. It has been referred to the Foreign Affairs Committee, which has 49 members, 24 of whom, including the ranking Republican, are co-sponsors. The Iran Nuclear Watch Web site writes, “According to the House leadership, this resolution is going to ‘pass like a hot knife through butter’ before the end of June on what is called suspension – meaning no amendments can be introduced during the 20-minute maximum debate. It also means it is assumed the bill will pass by a 2/3 majority and is non-controversial.”

Our national legislators deem it non-controversial to recommend to a president known for his recklessness and bad judgment that he consider engaging in an act of war against Iran. Those of you who consider this issue controversial can go to the Just Foreign Policy Web site and tell your representative to oppose this resolution.

une 28, 2008 Bush Declares US In 'State Of Emergency" Over Iranian Nuclear Fears

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers (Traducción al Español abajo)













Russian Military Analysts are reporting today that the United States President has declared that his Nation is now in a 'State of Emergency', both militarily and economically, by his signing of an Executive Order, and which we can read in part as reported by the White House News Service:

"By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) (NEA), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code,

I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, find that the current existence and risk of the proliferation of weapons-usable fissile material on the Korean Peninsula constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat."

These reports state that upon North Korea's presenting to the United States the complete dossier on its nuclear weapons programme, and for which President Bush immediately dropped all sanctions and removed them from the American list of countries supporting terrorism, the US Intelligence Community 'shuddered' at the full implication of Iran's involvement in the building of North Korean's nuclear weapons.

Since the establishment of North Korea's large-scale atomic energy research complex in Yongbyon in the 1960's with the help of the Soviets, say these reports, the North Korean's have amassed enough nuclear material in their arsenal for the making of over 200 atomic weapons in the 1-5 kiloton range.

However, since the conclusion of the Supply Agreement in December, 1995, North Korea utilized their relationship with Pakistan's 'Father of the Atomic Bomb' Abdul Qadeer (AQ) Khan to build a nuclear bomb which they exploded on October 9, 2006 to the 'shock' of the Western Powers.

Most ominously for the West, though, has been the North Koreans detailing in their reports that the financing of the nuclear research leading to their atomic bomb was conducted on behalf of the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution, a branch of the Islamic Republic of Iran's military.

Even worse for the Americans, continue these reports, was that Pakistan itself had been funneling billions of US supplied terror funds to assist the Iranians in their efforts to acquire atomic weapons, and which has set the American's on a 'collision course' with the Pakistanis.

According to the United States Government Accountability Office, over $6 billion given to Pakistan by the US since their 'war on terror' was begun in 2001 has been 'lost'.

Pakistan has also refused the demands of the US Congress to be given access to AQ Khan, and as we can read as reported by the Sify News Service: "Pakistan has rejected the demand of US lawmakers for direct access to nuclear scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan, saying it alone can probe into allegations that he proliferated the country's nuclear secrets. "We have made it clear, at every level, that no outside authority can interview Dr Khan," a senior official of the foreign office told IANS."

The 'greatest fears' of the Americans have now been realized, said one Top Russian General in these reports, due to Iran now being able to combine the nuclear bombs they now have with the cruise missiles they had previously acquired from Ukraine, and of which we can read as previously reported by the BBC News Service:

"Ukrainian arms dealers smuggled 18 nuclear-capable cruise missiles to Iran and China in 1999-2001, Ukraine's prosecutor-general has said.

The Soviet-era Kh-55 missiles - also known as X-55s - have a maximum range of 2,500km (1,550 miles). They are launched by long-range bombers. Official Ukrainian state bodies were not involved in the sales, the prosecutor-general's office said.

It added that the missiles were not exported with nuclear warheads."

But, to the most concerning element of the American President's declaration of a State of Emergency lies in the extraordinary powers granted to him, and which include his ability to bypass the US Congress to launch immediate attacks upon Iran and any Nation that comes to their defense.

Even more ominously, for the American people, is that under this new State of Emergency, President Bush is able to suspend all civil liberties and institute martial law over his citizens, even to the extent of suspending the upcoming elections should he declare it to be in his Nations best interest.

It is no wonder that the United Nations has 'warned' that an attack upon Iran by the US and Israel will result in a 'fireball' being ignited in the Middle East, but to the truest reason behind the igniting of Total Global War by the West lies in the words of the Iranian President himself, and who has warned that the astounding rise in oil prices is a 'game' being played upon the citizens of the Western Nations as our World is currently 'saturated' in oil not being used, or shipped.

http://jahtruth. net/britca. htm

For the American people to fully understand the truest state of their World, and the catastrophic horrors to come, they only need follow the rise in the price they pay for fuel to see the destruction of their economy is being deliberately manipulated to coincide with shock of war upon their own Homeland.

To the World that will arise in the ashes of this planned destruction they are only now beginning to glimpse…but to little, and much to late for them to stop what is to come.

"assymetric warfare" means that the warring sides are using different strategies and techniques, for example mines vs tanks, guerilla vs land invasion, hiding vs air...
in "symmetric warfare" both sides use the same strategies and techniques, for example tanks vs tanks, air vs air, infantry vs infantry

http://globalguerri llas.typepad. com/globalguerri llas/2008/ 07/iran-and- asymme.html://http://globalguerri llas.typepad. c...nd- asymme.html

IRAN AND ASYMMETRIC WARFARE

There is still a significant possibility of a US/Israeli air attack on Iran during the closing months of this year. A multitude of triggers could set it off. Here's some thinking you might find useful if it does occur.
____________ ____

Any attack by the US/Israel on Iran will be ostensibly aimed at suppressing the Iranian nuclear program. However, it will quickly evolve into something much larger, an airpower-based EBO (effects based operation). The objective of this EBO will regime change (see the brief: "Collapsing Iran", April 2006, for more details on this) without a ground invasion. It is assumed that by completely disrupting (turning off) the entire country's critical infrastructures (from power to communications to transportation) and isolating the country's leadership (in their bunkers), the country will quickly fragment in hundreds of competing factions.
NOTE: There is a line of reasoning (in various military circles) that the only success the US has had militarily over the last two decades has been from the application of air power. From the two Gulf Wars to Afghanistan, airpower was successful. Ground forces were successful to the extent they mopped up afterwards and quickly withdrew. In contrast, it was only when the Army/Marines attempted to hold ground that the US military ran into trouble. These advocates maintain that the US military should never hold ground in the future and that all applications of conventional military force in the future should primarily be airpower. This line of reasoning is currently being used by advocates of an attack on Iran.

War as a Conflict of Minds
Of course, the Iranian military leadership has anticipated this and believe any future attack against them will be based on airpower/EBO focused on regime change and not a ground invasion. Airpower, to the Iranians, is a form of asymmetric attack since they can't compete in this arena. As a result, the Iranians have developed what they call a "Passive Defense" run by its paramilitary (the Basij), based on the lessons learned by Hezbollah during the 2006 war with Israel. Mansharof and Savyon have explored the tenets of Passive Defense with an excellent article now available on MEMRI. Their planning consists of:

Concealment of critical facilities and nodes. Likely also parallel communications infrastructure that allows central leadership to communication with local paramilitary forces. Paramilitary elements will be recruited and installed in all critical facilities/infrastr ucture to help with recovery. Widespread public participation.
Emergency services at the local level that will provide food, water, and other services when they are cut off during the EBO. The Basij is being trained to provide this.
Increased connectivity of infrastructure to neighboring countries to make it more politically sensitive for the US to attack (in short, this connectivity is why conventional warfare is becoming increasingly rare, and why there is so much resistance to an attack on Iran in most quarters).

Selected quotes from Gen. Jalali, head of Basij:
"With military bases and forces around [Iran], America has access to the entire territory of the country. The Islamic Republic of Iran is a political regime that relies upon the [Iranian] people... If the enemy aims to change the regime, it can achieve this by disrupting the [regime's ability] to administer the population. To this end, the enemy will attempt to paralyze infrastructures and the vital institutions of the regime, in order to sow dissatisfaction among the people."

"That is, the enemy will try to destroy the infrastructures [vital to] people's lives, and we must protect the people while providing necessary services. According to some analyses, the [2006] Lebanon war was 'a war of bridges,' because Israel destroyed all bridges in Lebanon, large and small, in order to cut off all land routes. In other words, in that war, the immediate aim was to [destroy] the infrastructures [that permit] administering the population, but the ultimate aim was to render such administration impossible."

Offensive Operations
In addition to Passive Defense, the Iranians are also likely planning asymmetric offensive operations aimed at shortening the engagement -- a form of strategic barrage designed to limit the duration of the EBO. For example, Hezbollah's rocket attacks on Israel during the 2006 war were able to inflict strategic economic/political costs on Israel. These costs ensured that the war was short. In Iran's case, this means a series of attacks (a combination of guerrilla, missile, and small boat attacks) on oil facilities and oil transportation routes with the intent of making the costs to the global economy so great that political pressure will quickly force an end to the engagement.
