War With Iran Tomorrow?

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that Feb. 11 would mark the demise of “the liberal capitalist system,”   adding that its champion, America, was on the decline and that Iran and its Islamic Revolution were on the rise.

According to a Jan. 28 translation from BBC Monitoring Middle East, Ahmadinejad spoke on official Iranian television, saying that this year’s “Ten Days of Dawn” celebration, marking the anniversary of the country’s Islamic Revolution, would see the “demise” of the American system.

“I believe that 22 Bahman [ February 11 in the Persian calendar] this year marks the demise of the liberal capitalist system.” Ahmadinejad said.

Iran’s supreme leader said the country will deliver a ‘punch’ that will stun the West to mark tomorrow’s 31st anniversary of its Islamic Revolution.

In an address to air force leaders, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said: ‘The Iranian nation, with its unity and God’s grace, will punch the arrogance [Western powers] on the 22nd of Bahman [February 11] in a way that will leave them stunned.’

Daniel Pipes is making the case for Obama.

(Obama) needs a dramatic gesture to change the public perception of him as a light-weight, bumbling ideologue, preferably in an arena where the stakes are high, where he can take charge, and where he can trump expectations.

Such an opportunity does exist: Obama can give orders for the U.S. military to destroy Iran’s nuclear-weapon capacity.

Circumstances are propitious.

McLaughlin & Associates, May 2009: When asked whether they would support “using the [U.S.] military to attack and destroy the facilities in Iran which are necessary to produce a nuclear weapon,” 58 percent of 600 likely voters supported the use of force and 30 percent opposed it.

Fox News, September 2009: When asked “Do you support or oppose the United States taking military action to keep Iran from getting nuclear weapons?” 61 percent of 900 registered voters supported military action and 28 opposed it.

And Sarah Palin is already on board!

    The US only attacks people and countries who can’t put up much resistance. Iran is well situated to do a lot of damage if it were attacked and the last thing the imperialists need is instability.

    An attack on Iran makes no sense at all in terms of U.S. interests. Israel, on the other hand, may have the power to move the U.S. military to do something insane since the U.S. leadership class is infested with Israeli agents. But the oligarchy would have to asleep at the wheel to allow something like that to happen. Gates, who is the main power-broker in Washington has never been for that course of action and was brought in, imho, to curtail the insane plans of the Israeli/neocon lobby in Washington.

    The globalist/imperial agenda is in a rather delicate state so why would they bother creating more problems?

    Just strap a parachute onto Sarah Palin, and drop her into Teheran. With or without a translator – Iran has lots of people that speak English. That’ll fix ’em – but good!

    The really neat thing about this plan is that it might save the US, at the same time. Obama is such a screw-up, I don’t think he’ll win in 2012. So, it’s really a matter of trying to get a Republican in there who won’t be the death of us all! Even Jeb Bush would give us more of a chance than Sarah Palin!
