War on Iran Would Mean World War III
by grtv

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."

@ djg
do you want to say the Knight of Malta, Shriner Freemason and
Sabbatean Frankist Henry Kissinger, the "Banker of God" since he has been chosen for being the director of the Banco Ambrosiano in 2006?
Obama, Jesuit trained at the Jesuit Georgetown University' s Edmund A. Walsh Foreign Service School follows the globalist agenda. He is selected to finish the preparation of the Last Crusade, World War III into establish the One World Government.
Like his predecessors, he is vowed to the NWO and to the Shadow Government.

Very fine interview yet again with Professor Chossudovsky, but I don't question when WW III will happen, for either we're already in it and have been for the past decade or more, but WW3 could also be considered the historical Cold War of Washington aainst the former USSR. I understand both perceptions; understanding people who don't yet think WW III has begun, while also understanding those of us who say WW III began a little over a decade ago, or bit more than that, and those saying we're in WW IV and that III was the Cold War against the former USSR.

What's been going on for a long time is world war, for it's war, economic, military, "intelligence", et cetera, against HUMANITY and it's global and the injustices due to our elites are global. John Pilger, War on Democracy! That's related to global war ; again, economic, military, et cetera. We have world war going on, but not really comparable. It isn't that in any immediate way, not re. WWs I and II; but, there's relevance.

They're diffierently conducted WWs, but we have war on or against humanity in many respects, so we're alreay in midst of WW.

How many govts stand up to oppose Washington? Hardly any. Why? WW and far powerful as opposed to significantly (though not totally) less powerful. Hence, politics are played out and it isn't in our favour, for what's in our favour is an end to all of this criminality against humanity and, therefore, also aginst the environment. Truly criminal treatment of the latter constitutes more crime against us, as well.

We have a dying planet, so why shy away from saying the situation is WW? The difference is found in what people think WW means in it's variable respects.

The US DoD wants "full spectrum dominance" by 2020 and that's WW goals; but, that also is only one of many examples.

Read the whole book should you want the truth!!

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).

This evil (war crazy) Zionist is waging world war III, why? Simply because he belongs to a secretive evil society, so called Freemasons, an ideology extracted from Zionism. The top leaders and representatives in a higher rank in the Freemasons ranking categories are working on the last scenario of so called world war III, and they're making the final touches, this is all to drag Russia and China into a war so the USA as they believe will be the winner and by then the one world government will be formed and the Zionists will have control over the world to enslave every other nation, so the long waited for Lucifer (the false Messiah) comes. But I think this dream will never come true! The next rulers of the world will be Muslims and they will lead the world to peace, equality and justice; the true Islam will come, and every one will realize how this beautiful religion was so innocent, but the Freemasons were using the world press and TV to make it look terrible! and they were using some idiots and agents to make Muslims look like terrorists!!! Before you judge something, make sure to read about it, not just listen to rumors. Also it is a good idea to know your real enemies (the Freemasons, Illuminati, ...) Google, and youtube are the main sources. Thanks Folks for reading.

No, dear Abdullah, they are not waiting for Lucifer; they prepare terrain for Ahriman or Antichrist to come! There is a big difference between Lucifer (he works today mainly in the East) and Ahriman (Satan) who works mainly in the West...

One must never forget that God's children, the human beings, were put on this planet to live in peace, to build, to proliferate.
Satan's children, the Jews, were sent here to enslave us humans and kill our planet!
Of course, we humans had a choice! But instead of saying NO to Satan and his Jews, we handed over our planet on a silver platter! We have nobody to blame but ourselves!
