Do second terms for Obama and Netanyahu offer a second opportunity to carry out their intention to attack Iran’s nuclear installations?
“A decade of war is ending. ” President Barak Obama declared his country’s determination to “show the courage to try and resolve our differences with other nations peacefully.” The inauguration into a second term for the United States President – even with a reduced majority – was undoubtedly a triumph. But is the pledge to develop a new strategy towards peace actually credible, or are we being exposed to more double-talk?
Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu has also been returned to power with a considerably reduced majority. The interaction between these two leaders has been interesting over the past several months, given the avowed intention of both men to deal with Iran’s nuclear development program. America’s role, however, has been to tease the public by blowing hot and cold with amazing frequency. Undoubtedly, they are using deception, an accepted strategy in dealing with the enemy, in attempt to blow dust in Iran’s eyes as well.
We have witnessed flotillas of carriers and other warships in and out of the Eastern Mediterranean and the Gulf regions and extravagant military and naval exercises have been conducted by both sides. If sabre-rattling is all it is, a vast amount of money has been expended with little purpose. Iran has not backed away from its nuclear program, which it assures the world is peaceful, while the USA appears to have back-peddled apparently leaving Israel to decide whether to face Iran alone.
In fact, the severity of the standoff between these countries, which has continued for some years, is witnessed by the war in Syria – just another victim in the firing line. Qatar, one of America’s prime allies in the Middle East, is playing a major role in bringing the ultimate scenario to a climax. It is a leading player, sponsored by the US, in the opposition led by the Brotherhood against President Assad’s regime.
According to Nicola Nasser, writing for Global Research E-Newsletter today:
Recently, Qatar has, for another example, replaced Syria , which has been on the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism since 1979, as the sponsor of Hamas, whose leadership relocated from Damascus to Doha , which the U.S. lists as a “terrorist” group, and which publicly admits being the Palestinian branch of the Brotherhood.
The public is never afforded a complete picture of the machinations of government manoeuverings, but if I were to place a bet on it, I would say Iran is next on the list of Middle East nations to be brought down. If the US does not come out as a direct antagonist in the coming war, it will certainly be involved behind the scenes! There is a reason for the deck of cards collapse of Lebanon, Libya and Egypt, to name but a few. My novel, Opus Dei, paints a credible scenario of the coming war and its aftermath.
