The clouds of a Mideast war are growing darker by the day.
The United States is using al-Qaida-aligned terrorists to overthrow the Bashar Assad regime just as it did to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi in Libya. Although NATO has been hesitant to provide air support like it did in Libya — despite calls from neocon war lovers like Senators John McCain and Joe Lieberman to let the bombing commence sooner rather than later — the organization is using Turkey’s Military High Command and funds from Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf states to arm and train the rebels in the use of anti-tank and anti-aircraft rockets, mortars and heavy machine guns.
Meanwhile, the drumbeat for an attack on Iran grows louder and stronger, despite the fact that no one really believes Iran is on the verge of producing a nuclear weapon. And U.S. troops are being placed strategically in the region to prepare for an attack.
But Russia and China are warning the United States to cease its meddling in the region.
Russia is sending two warships to Syria. A Russian transport carrying attack helicopters has been halted by the British after the ship’s insurer revoked insurance coverage. Syria, Iran, Russia and China are planning joint war games that will involve almost 100,000 troops, 400 aircraft and 1,000 tanks — and a fleet of warships from Russia and China that includes Russian nuclear attack submarines.
The American Free Press reports that the Bilderberg group “emerged from their annual meeting determined to force a war in the Middle East.” Their puppet, President Barack Obama, has decided he can start wars whenever he chooses. That time may be soon.
“We can get Israel to attack Iran because we Americans throw so much money at them,” Bilderberger and former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger told his Bilderberg brethren, according to an AFP report. “Israel has a strong army, loves to use it and knows American troops will join them immediately.”
And that will further advance the group’s goal, according to Carl Bildt, Sweden’s minister of foreign affairs. “Your American ‘nationalists’ will be pleading for a global agency that can impose economic orders on any country on Earth, force them to raise taxes, increase aid to other states, or whatever,” he said, according to AFP.
Besides, there’s nothing like a good shootin’ war to up a President’s re-election prospects — especially early in the game before fatigue for the latest “adventure” sets in.
