Impending Explosion: U.S. Intensifies Threats To Russia And Iran by Rick Rozoff

The war drums are being pounded anew and the world may be headed for a catastrophe far worse than those in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Iraq.

READ THE REST

This is a pretty thorough account of the massive military build-up started under Bush and being accelerated now under Obama all around Russia.  We, along with our NATO allies, are now on a war-footing like no other time in history.

Tale of Two Headlines

On Fox.com’s website today, we get a plea for war on Iran asap:

IRAN MUST BE STOPPED

This insane propaganda claims:

Ahmadinejad has told the world all about his ultimate intentions. He seeks the destruction of Israel and of the United States. His country is building the instrumentalities by which he could achieve his goals, while the world sits back and watches.

Hmmmm….. Ahmadinejad has told the world they are building a power plant.  They are in full compliance with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (which Israel is not) and allow UN IAEA inspections of their nuclear facilities (Israel does not).  I’m not saying he’s a great guy–just stating the facts.

Here’s another interesting headline about a different perspective:

RUSSIAN MILITARY CHIEF WARNS U.S. AGAINST STRIKING IRAN

Here’s an excerpt:

Russia’s top military warned the US on Wednesday against using force against Iran over its controversial nuclear ambitions, saying the consequences would be “dreadful”.

“The consequences, I believe, would be dreadful for Iran, as well as Russia, the entire Asia—Pacific community,” said Gen. Nikolai Makarov, chief of Russia’s General Staff.

So, basically we have warmongers crying for war over here in the U.S., while Russia warns “Back off–that’s OUR OIL”.

Who wants war with Russia?  Anyone?  ….Anyone?
