Behold: The Prince of Persia!…get ready for War with Iran
By Doug Krieger
A witch’s brew: The mixture of religion and politics. That’s precisely what this article has done! Scott Ritter’s analysis that US is technically at war with Iran (as we speak), and that this can be validated by same preparations and activity prior to Coalition of Willing’s incursion into Iraq in early 2003, is ominous and, unfortunately, overall trustworthy. Our analysis confronts majority opinion expressed by conservative Christians in pursuit of War on Terror against “evil doers” . . . and why “American Patriotic Church” is theologically resolute in its support for Administration’s designs in Middle East—the moral under girding in Neo-Con implementation of Democratic Globalism is just about to be wildly tested, once again.
DÉJÀ VU (Where have I heard this before?)
(Note: May I warn you from outset . . . this treatise may commence with levitas of “secular” indiscretions, comments and analysis . . . but it will culminate with relevant theological gravitas . . . bear with me; and, oddly enough, article actually “hangs together”)
“President Bush had signed a covert finding in late spring 2002, which authorized CIA and US Special Operations forces to dispatch clandestine units into Iraq for purpose of removing Saddam Hussein from power. The fact is that Iraq war had begun by beginning of summer 2002, if not earlier . . . as was case with Iraq pre-March 2003, Bush administration today speaks of ‘diplomacy’ and a desire for a ‘peaceful’ resolution to Iranian question. But facts speak of another agenda, that of war and forceful removal of theocratic regime, currently wielding reigns of power in Tehran . . . as with Iraq, president has paved way for conditioning of American public and an all-too-compliant media to accept at face value merits of a regime change policy regarding Iran, linking regime of Mullah's to an ‘axis of evil’ (together with newly ‘liberated’ Iraq and North Korea), and speaking of absolute requirement for spread of ‘democracy’ to Iranian people. (Scott Ritter, July 2005, RENSE.COM)
History tends to repeat itself. Yes, but this fast? Yes, again! Scott Ritter, beloved voice of Left for his criticisms of War in Iraq, is a former intelligence officer for United States Marine Corps (where he served as lead analyst for Marine Corps Rapid Deployment Force concerning Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and Iran-Iraq War). Also, this “Army of One” was key coordinator for implementation of UNSC (United Nations Security Council) resolutions mandating elimination of Iraqi WMD.
So . . . BAM! Ritter gets top billing in Aljazeera for his prophetic outbursts by likening Bush’s pre-invasion tactics of Iraq with what’s happening now in Iran. Indeed, parallels are staggering and overwhelmingly convincing, even to God bless America crowd—who, unfortunately, demand that present conflict be expanded to include entire “Axis of Evil” (along with a few lesser-rans like Syria and rest of those mad bombers running around loose out there). They need to be hunted down and democratized, so Free World can get on with globalization, along with unhindered economic growth in USA.
Nothing, absolutely nothing, can stop cheap money pouring into US economy (and, ipso facto, accelerated/unimaginable skyrocketing prices found in US housing market today) from central banks, all to willing to finance national debt in order to keep Americans buying their cheap products.
The foreign purchase of US bonds, in order to finance our nearly $8 Trillion Trade Deficit (now outpacing our National Debt (also $8 Trillion) by nearly twice as fast), places uninhibited pressure upon lenders and mortgage companies to keep interest rates artificially low, which in turn directly exacerbate already inflated housing market driving current “economic boom/bubble.”
One must ponder intoxicating influences of that Great City prophesied in Scripture with a new understanding of what it means to be addicted to alcohol—talk about going on a bender (i.e., a massive drunken spree), with absolutely no desire for a 12 Step or “Wagon” experience!
“For all nations have drunk of wine of wrath of her fornication, kings of earth have committed fornication with her, and merchants of earth have become rich through abundance of her luxury” (Revelation 18:3).
Of course, all this apocalyptic hyperbole, according to our what-me-worry Preterist buds, took place years ago (like 1900 years ago) around 100 A.D. . . . . So, who cares about Bible prophecy anyway, right? After all, who wants to live in an encumbered future full of doom and gloom and “Ritter rhetoric” that smacks of “American hate speak” and, furthermore, borders (no, it actually is) malignant, traitorous propaganda. Alas! Ritter has become replacement for Baghdad Bob; you know, that clown featured on news channels for his “all is love and oneness” remarks when all “Western hell” was breaking lose (now, come on, you lefties had to laugh at that character). His believability ratings were off chart: “That wasn’t Saddam you guys captured, it was Santa Claus!”
THIS IS NO JOKING MATTER
O.K. Let’s get serious about this business of world conquest by democratization on a scale heretofore not seen since ancient Rome. The evidence mounts daily on US intentions (let alone Israeli intentions) regarding Iran’s pending demise (a.k.a., “regime change possibilities”). Most Americans have no idea, thanks to complicity of corporate media (and that’s not a cliché . . . check out this website next time (and excuse my purposeful digression), you’ll be glad you used a Westinghouse toaster while you’re watching TV; to wit:
“In 2004, Bagdikian's revised and expanded book, The New Media Monopoly, shows that only 5 huge corporations -- Time Warner, Disney, Murdoch's News Corporation, Bertelsmann of Germany, and Viacom (formerly CBS) -- now control most of media industry in U.S. General Electric’s NBC is a close sixth.” (See: http://www.corporations.org/media/ )
Pilotless drones scour airspace above Iran, while CIA-backed Mujahadeen el-Khalq, or MEK, an Iranian opposition group, once run by Saddam Hussein’s dreaded intelligence services, but now working exclusively for CIA’s Directorate of Operations, pans out across Iran—a bombing here, a bombing there, man, we could be talking about a real bombing campaign here pretty soon.
And, of course, Bush/Rice continue to bash Iranian efforts at “free elections” – naturally, hardliners have rigged whole smear, so what else is news. Meanwhile, a huge US military buildup continues unabated in, naturally, you guessed it: Just due north of Teheran, Iran: Azerbaijan (former Soviet bastion of infiltration and headaches for Persia’s Shah). Good night, read entire link and weep (for “joy” if you’re a crusader; for “grief” if you’re an Islamic bureaucrat), and “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!”
