Iran Nuke Document Was Forged - Just Like Iraqi "Yellow Cake" Document

Former CIA official Philip Giraldi says that:

U.S. intelligence has concluded that the document published recently by the Times of London, which purportedly describes an Iranian plan to do experiments on what the newspaper described as a "neutron initiator" for an atomic weapon, is a fabrication.

Like the Nigerian "yellow cake" forgery, U.S. intelligence had to have known the Iranian document was a forgery, and yet failed to debunk either. Indeed, as Time points out, the yellow cake document:

had been checked out — and debunked — by U.S. intelligence a year before the President repeated it.

Indeed, a claim that Iran is trying to buy uranium is now being made against Iran, just as it was with Iraq. Specifically, Associated Press - citing unnamed "diplomats" from an unnamed country - is reporting today that Iran is trying to obtain uranium. However, Iran says that it has 1,400 uranium mines (a senior IAEA official was allowed to visit one of the mines in 1992) - so why would Iran need to purchase more uranium from another country?

The parallels go even further, since war against both countries were planned many years ago. Specifically:

  • The decision to launch the Iraq war was made before 9/11
  • The decision to launch a war against Iran was made before 9/11
And false linkages between terrorists and both countries are be (or may still be) made. Specifically:
  • A knowingly false linkage was made between Al Qaeda and Iraq, and - while most people forget this fact - that false linkage formed one of the main justifications for the war in Iraq
  • U.S. congressman Ron Paul stated that the government "is determined to have martial law", and that the government is hoping to get the people "fearful enough that they will accept the man on the white horse". He also said "a contrived Gulf of Tonkin-type incident may occur to gain popular support for an attack on Iran".
  • And former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski told the Senate that a terrorist act might be carried out in the U.S. and falsely blamed on Iran to justify war against that nation. He also told the Senate that the war on terror is "a mythical historical narrative".
Disclaimer: I don't like the Iranian Mullahs - I think they are fundamentalist fanatics, and the violence against protesters is barbaric. I also didn't like Saddam Hussein, as he was a ruthless tyrant.

But there is a little difference between not liking someone and sending American boys and girls overseas to be killed in an unnecessary war.


  1. "... in an unnecessary war."

    oh but it is all necessary - very necessary. the usa needs the OIL and the amerikan war machine needs to suck Taxpayer $$$ out of the Treasury at a regular steady rate.

    it is all necessary and it is all Good.

  2. I sure hope that the American people don't fall for this old gag again. However, it appears to me that the decades of programming re: Iran have been successful and the people will comply when the gov't is ready to make the invasion mistake. I didn't put up much of a fight in 2002 during the buildup to the invasion of Iraq. I promise the next time will be different.

  3. Fundamentalist fanatics are rife throughout Duhmerica's gov't too. Duhmerican't cops don't have a stellar track record when it comes to protests either. Saddam was Duhmerica's ruthless tyrant when he was fighting Iran though wasn't he!

    There is a huge difference between making deals for minerals Duhmerica covets as the Chinese are around the world, and bombing whole countries and cultures back into the stone age as seems to be Duhmerica's modus operandi.


    One or all at the same time Duhmerica is hell bent on starting wars on the slimmest of pretenses to distract Duhmericans from the massive shit storm about to hit their economy.

    Business as usual.

  4. It's unfortunate that the U.S. needs to have an enemy in order to survive. It is also unfortunate that this "Bad Muslim" narrative, perpetuated ever since Iran I (Carter admin.) persists - no doubt assisted by the likes of Professor Bernard Lewis et al. It, like all of the other policies - political, economical, social etc. - perpetrated by the U.S. administration are ultimately unsustainable.

    One must ask "What is the root cause of all of this?"...and then work diligently to remove it. Until then, nothing but suffering, unhappiness, sadness.

  5. How is it our business what the Mullahs do to the Iranian people, seems to me it's the Iranian people's business same as Sadam was Iraqi business. America has way to violent history to be criticizing anybody for violence. We destroyed Latin America, we assassinated any body we didn't like or looked like they might be a socialist and therefore an automatic enemy of the US. We make the same claim about the fundamentals in Afghanistan and then we blow up half their country with heartless drones killing all who are in the way enemy or not. It's about time we started minding our won business. We are so corrupt and mismanaged at home we shouldn't have time for this nonsense of butting in to other peoples business.
