War on Iran Would Mean World War III
The military build-up and economic sanctions against Iran are designed to unleash a global war from the Mediterranean to China with unpredictable consequences, warns Michel Chossudovsky, Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization.
Tensions between Iran and the West are close to crisis level. With massive help from the western media, Iran has firmly become embedded as the root of all evil in the minds of many westerners.
The author of the book Towards a World War Three Scenario, The Dangers of Nuclear War told RT that “The issue of Iran’s nuclear weapons is a red herring, but this red herring could lead us to a WWIII scenario.” He also recalled all the American military bases with nuclear weapons close to Iran’s borders.
Michel Chossudovsky recalled that a couple of weeks ago, America’s Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta quite categorically stated to CBS that Iran neither possesses, nor is developing nuclear weapons. Panetta did not rule out that there are still diplomatic means to cut Iran’s Gordian knot.
But considering the US military preparations around Iran, this statement rather looks like a deceptive maneuver.
Last week, EU nations adopted an unprecedented set of sanctions against the Islamic Republic..
These include a complete embargo on oil supplies from Iran, and are expected to come into force in July.
“What we are witnessing here is a build-up towards a military confrontation. These sanctions constitute the staging of a military agenda,” feels Michel Chossudovsky. “In turn, we have massive deployment of US military hardware, troops going to Israel to be stationed in Israel, more troops go to Kuwait, [American] naval forces are entering the Persian Gulf.”
Michel Chossudovsky believes that “What the United States wants now, including its allies, is some kind of a green light which will give a human face to a war.”
On Monday, the UN nuclear inspectors started a three-day mission to examine Iran’s atomic activities.
Tehran says the talks with the International Atomic Energy Agency, the first in more than three years, will prove its nuclear program is purely peaceful.
With the visit of the IAEA inspectors, Iran is playing a diplomatic card, believes Chossudovsky. The IAEA is not politically controlled, so once it confirms Iran’s nuclear program has peaceful purposes, this should undermine the aggressive intentions of the West.
The US needs a contrary statement from the IAEA to use this for transition to a new — military — stage in the Iran drama.
“This war has already started. There are drone attacks, there are special [American] forces inside Iran and there is financial warfare,” considers Michel Chossudovsky.
Plans to invade Iran emerged immediately after the invasion of Iraq, Chossudovsky informs, with military preparations begun around 2005, so by now everything should be ready and in place for a full-scale military conflict.
“The WWIII scenario is unthinkable. This war would extend from the Meditarranean to the Chinese border. It could possibly include Russia and China,” Michel Chossudovsky concluded. “We could find ourselves at a very critical crossroads.”

“Shocking”: World Believes Same Iraq-Style Lies About Iran
RT interviews German journalist Jurgen Elsaesser, author of the book “Iran: Facts Against Western Propaganda”. He thinks Tehran has every right to produce nuclear energy, and fears that “extremist Israeli government could provoke war with Iran at any time”.
This insightful forecast was filmed in November 2009.
“Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel, we, the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it.” – Ariel Sharon
BRITAIN TOO FOLKS!
The decay of parliamentary and representative government can be traced in England and America from the period 1916-1917. If secret men could dictate major acts of American state policy and major operations of British armies, deploying troops from the defence of France to seize Palestine in order to set up an independent state for alien Russian “Jews,” then clearly election and responsible office were terms devoid of meaning.
Party distinctions began to fade in both countries, once this hidden, supreme authority was accepted by leading Western politicians, and the American and British electors began to be deprived of all true choice. Today this condition is general, and now public. Leaders of all parties, before elections, make obeisance to Zionism, and the voter’s selection of president, prime minister or party makes no true difference.
In November 1917 the American Republic thus became equally involved with Great Britain in Zionism, which has proved to be a destructive force. However, it was only one agency of “the destructive principle.” The mass of Jews in Russia, under their Talmudic directors, were united in the revolutionary aim, and only divided between revolutionary-Zionism and revolutionary-Communism.
In the very week of the Balfour Declaration the other group of Jews in Russia achieved their aim, the destruction of the Russian nation-state. The Western politicians thus bred a bicephalous monster, one head being the power of Zionism in the Western capitals, and the other the power of Communism advancing from captive Russia. Submission to Zionism weakened the power of the West to preserve itself against the world-revolution, because Zionism worked to keep western governments submissive and to deflect their policies from national interests; indeed, at that instant the cry was first raised that opposition to the world-revolution, too, was “anti-semitism”. Governments hampered by secret capitulations in one direction cannot act firmly in any other, and the timidity of London and Washington in their dealings with the world-revolution, during the decades to follow, evidently derived from their initial submission to the “web of intrigue” spun across the Atlantic between 1914 and 1917 (Douglas Reed, The Conspiracy of Zion, p. 270-271).
Reed forecast WW3 were the monster still intact…..intact?
It’s grown and spread!
