Attack on Iran:New Russia and China Intell.
The Voice of the White House
Washington, D.C., January 26, 2007: “The GRU and other Russian-based organs have completely penetrated the highest-level American codes (including satellite transmissions) and have been reading our military (DIA and Pentagon) and civilian (read CIA/USIA [and other]) messages being sent from Iraq, Israel, Turkey, Egypt and Italy.
From this, I was told, and shown copies of intercepts, that Bush and Israel are fomenting a new war in the Gulf area by either creating an "incident" (casus belli) or instigating one.
There are US intelligence units (small) now operating under cover in Iran and while the Iranians don't know the details, the Russians do. If, as reported, Bush is going to off Iranians in Iraq, the U.S. units in Iran will be offed as a quid pro quo. And videos of the executions made for U.S. domestic consumption!
Both Russia and China have supplied Iran (and from them the Iraqi Resistance people) with shaped charge small shoulder-held rockets that will blow up the biggest tank and, as happened several days ago, the biggest armored military helicopters?
The suggestion that Bush and Israel would attack Iran for his prestige and their safety might interdict the vital oil China must have and so the Chinese, too, have fully entered the game.
They don't keep the Russians courant.
The latter have also got agents planted with Israeli military and intelligence organs in Israel and these supply Moscow with a heavy stream of information concerning the Mideast political and military situation and most especially, projects that might be of interest to Russia and, through them, Iran. Any gen coming from the U.S. to Israel ends up in Moscow almost simultaneously! Do much for the delusion that secrets are secrets.
Anyway, the Mideast pot is coming to a boil and this parallels the situation in Washington where Bush is facing growing, and entirely predictable, rebellion from the newly-empowered Democrats.
Remember the proverb about the house built on sand? The winds came and beat upon that house and it fell and great was the fall thereof? Nice simile and so true! “

Iran Must Get Ready to Repel a Nuclear Attack
by General Leonid Ivashov
In the overall flow of information coming from the Middle East, there are increasingly frequent reports indicating that within several months from now the US will deliver nuclear strikes on Iran. For example, citing well-informed but undisclosed sources, the Kuwaiti Arab Times wrote that the US plans to launch a missile and bomb attack on the territory of Iran before the end of April, 2007. The campaign will start from the sea and will be supported by the Patriot missile defense systems in order to let the US forces avoid a ground operation and to reduce the efficiency of the return strike by “any Persian Gulf country”.
“Any country” mostly refers to Iran. The source which supplied the information to the Kuwaiti paper believes that the US forces in Iraq and other countries of the region will be defended from any Iranian missile strikes by the frontier Patriots.
So, the preparations for a new US aggression entered the completion phase. The executions of S. Hussein and his closest associates were a part of these preparations. Their purpose was to serve as a “disguise operation” for the efforts of the US strategists to deliberately escalate the situation both around Iran and in the entire Middle East.
Analyzing the consequences of the move, the US did order to hang the former Iraqi leader and his associates. This shows that the US has adopted irreversibly the plan of partitioning Iraq into three warring pseudo-states – the Shiite, the Sunnite, and the Kurdish ones. Washington reckons that the situation of a controlled chaos will help it to dominate the Persian Gulf oil supplies and other strategically important oil transportation routes.
The most important aspect of the matter is that a zone of an endless bloody conflict will be created at the core of the Middle East, and that the countries neighboring Iraq – Iran, Syria, Turkey (Kurdistan) – will inevitably be getting drawn into it. This will solve the problem of completely destabilizing the region, a task of major importance for the US and especially for Israel. The war in Iraq was just one element in a series of steps in the process of regional destabilization. It was only a phase in the process of getting closer to dealing with Iran and other countries, which the US declared or will declare rouge.
However it is not easy for the US to get involved in yet another military campaign while Iraq and Afghanistan are not “pacified” (the US lacks the resources necessary for the operation). Besides, protests against the politics of the Washington neocons intensify all over the world. Due to all of the above, the US will use nuclear weapon against Iran. This will be the second case of the use of nuclear weapons in combat after the 1945 US attack on Japan.
The Israeli military and political circles had been making statements on the possibility of nuclear and missile strikes on Iran openly since October, 2006, when the idea was immediately supported by G. Bush. Currently it is touted in the form of a “necessity” of nuclear strikes. The public is taught to believe that there is nothing monstrous about such a possibility and that, on the contrary, a nuclear strike is quite feasible. Allegedly, there is no other way to “stop” Iran.
How will other nuclear powers react? As for Russia, at best it will limit itself to condemning the strikes, and at worst – as in the case of the aggression against Yugoslavia – its response will be something like “though by this the US makes a mistake, the victim itself provoked the attack”.
Europe will react in essentially the same way. Possibly, the negative reaction of China and several other countries to the nuclear aggression will be stronger. In any case, there will be no retaliation nuclear strike on the US forces (the US is absolutely sure of this).
The UN means nothing in this context. Having failed to condemn the aggression against Yugoslavia, the UN Security Council effectively shared the responsibility for it. This institution is only capable to adopt resolutions which the Russian and also the French diplomacy understands as banning the use of force, but the US and British ones interpret in exactly the opposite sense – as authorizing their aggression.
Speaking of Israel, it is sure to come under the Iranian missile strikes. Possibly, the Hezbollah and the Palestinian resistance will become more active. Posing as victims, the Israelis will resort to provocations to justify their aggression, suffer some tolerable damage, and then the outraged US will destabilize Iran finally, making it look like a noble mission of retribution.
Some people tend to believe that concerns over the world’s protests can stop the US. I do not think so. The importance of this factor should not be overstated. In the past, I have spent hours talking to Milosevic, trying to convince him that NATO was preparing to attack Yugoslavia. For a long time, he could not believe this and kept telling me: “Just read the UN Charter. What grounds will they have to do it?”
But they did it. They ignored the international law outrageously and did it. What do we have now? Yes, there was a shock, there was indignation. But the result is exactly what the aggressors wanted – Milosevic is dead, Yugoslavia is partitioned, and Serbia is colonized – NATO officers have set up their headquarters in the country’s ministry of defense.
The same things happened to Iraq. There were a shock and indignation. But what matters to the Americans is not how big the shock is, but how high are the revenues of their military-industrial complex.
The information that a second US aircraft-carrier is due to arrive at the Persian Gulf till the end of January makes it possible to analyze the possible evolution of the war situation. Attacking Iran, the US will mostly use air delivery of the nuclear munitions. Cruise missiles (carried by the US aircrafts as well as ships and submarines) and, possibly, ballistic missiles will be used. Probably, nuclear strikes will be followed by air raids from aircraft carriers and by other means of attack.
The US command is trying to exclude a ground operation: Iran has a strong army and the US forces are likely to suffer massive casualties. This is unacceptable for G. Bush who already finds himself in a difficult situation. It does not take a ground operation to destroy infrastructures in Iran, to reverse the development of the country, to cause panic, and to create a political, economic and military chaos. This can be accomplished by using first the nuclear, and subsequently the conventional means of warfare. Such is the purpose of bringing the aircraft carrier group closer to the Iranian coast.
What resources for self-defense does Iran have? They are considerable, but incomparably inferior to the US forces. Iran has 29 Russian Tor systems. Definitely, they are an important reinforcement of the Iranian air defense. However, at present Iran has no guaranteed protection from air raids.
The US tactics will be the same as usual: first, to neutralize the air defense and radars, and then to attack aircrafts in the air and on land, the control installations, and the infrastructure, while taking no risks.
Within weeks from now, we will see the informational warfare machine start working. The public opinion is already under pressure. There will be a growing anti-Iranian militaristic hysteria, new information leaks, disinformation, etc.
At the same time all of the above sends a signal to the pro-Western opposition and to a fraction of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s elite to get ready for the coming developments. The US hopes that an attack on Iran will inevitably result in a chaos in the country, and that it will be possible to bribe some of the Iranian generals and thus to create a fifth column in the country.
Of course, Iran is very different from Iraq. However, if the aggressor succeeds in instigating a conflict between the two branches of the Iranian armed forces – the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps and the army – the country will find itself in a critical situation, especially in case at the very beginning of the campaign the US manages to hit the Iranian leadership and delivers a nuclear strike or a massive one by conventional warfare on the country’s central command.
Today, the probability of a US aggression against Iran is extremely high. It does remain unclear, though, whether the US Congress is going to authorize the war. It may take a provocation to eliminate this obstacle (an attack on Israel or the US targets including military bases). The scale of the provocation may be comparable to the 9-11 attack in NY. Then the Congress will certainly say “Yes” to the US President.

Livermore: Radiation open air explosive detonations in Bay Area
Livermore Pro-Nukers Move to Kill More in San Francisco Area
by Bob Nichols
(San Francisco) In a truly bizarre development, the Lawrence Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab, in Livermore, California, has gotten underway even larger nuclear radiation open air explosive detonations at "Site 300" near Tracy, California.
Tracy is on the South end of the Bay Area. The High Explosive detonations are to widely distribute radioactive poison gas [uranium oxide gas and aerosols] over the unsuspecting seven million residents of the San Francisco Bay Area, water supplies, buildings, animals, food crops and plants of every variety.
Bob Sarvey, Bay Area citizen/activist and businessman stated "The government has been using Site 300 as an explosives testing facility since the late 1950's. The site has been a toxic Superfund site since 1991 and contains a 2 mile tritium plume [radioactive hydrogen in water] with deposits of U-238 [radioactive uranium] in unlined pits. No one has paid much attention; but, now that the City of Tracy wants to build 5,500 homes in the shadow of the Site it's time to examine its radiological and noise impacts on Tracy and the radiological impacts on the rest of the Bay Area."
The great billion dollar foodstuff and veggie producing irrigated valleys of California are just a stones throw away. The Nation's food supply is in danger.
Normally the weaponized radioactive poison gas munitions are to be used on America's many "terrorists" enemies around the globe. The battlefield product has no "turn off" switch and is deadly forever.
Apparently the rogue Livermore Nuker Lab has declared war on San Francisco. The Nuclear Weapons Lab has been "managed" by UC-Berkeley for 61 years.
In a demonstration of supreme religious belief in war, Livermore Nuker Lab officials allude to a little fence around the huge 7,000 acre open air Radiation Bomb "Live" Detonation Area for protection.
It is as if the little fence is supposed to stop the radioactive gas in the wind. Needless to say, the rest of us know that it is not going to happen. Yet, Livermore Nuker Lab seems to believe the public will buy this lame defense.
Livermore Lab has continuously contaminated the region for decades. San Francisco residents are reporting the presence of cancer causing uranium in hair samples.
This is what regular non-psychotic, anti-nuclear radiation bomber humans, or, the rest of us, can do to STOP the RADIOACTIVE BOMBS' GAS ATTACK ON SAN FRANCISCO!

Rumsfeld 'transition' office in Pentagon raising eyebrows
Published: Thursday January 25, 2007
Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has left the Pentagon, but not the Defense Department, reports Thursday's edition of the Washington Times, revealed that Bush's onetime Defense chief is now an unpaid consultant -- with classified access.
"On Jan. 4, Mr. Rumsfeld opened a government-provided transition office in Arlington and has seven Pentagon-paid staffers working for him, a Pentagon official told the paper.
The Times reported that the Pentagon lists Mr. Rumsfeld as a "nonpaid consultant," a classification needed to review secret and top-secret documents.
"Mr. Rumsfeld and his aides, who include close adviser Stephen Cambone, are sifting through the thousands of pages of documents generated during his tenure," the Times wrote. "The Pentagon official said former secretaries are entitled to a transition office to sort papers, some of which can be taken with them for a library, for archives or to write a book."
"The transition office has raised some eyebrows inside the Pentagon," the Times continues. "Some question the size of the staff, which includes two military officers and two enlisted men. They also ask why the sorting could not have been done from the time Mr. Rumsfeld resigned Nov. 8 to when he left the building Dec. 18."
Rumsfeld's transition raises questions
By Rowan Scarborough
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
Published January 25, 2007
Former Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld has left the Pentagon, but not the Defense Department.
On Jan. 4, Mr. Rumsfeld opened a government-provided transition office in Arlington and has seven Pentagon-paid staffers working for him, a Pentagon official said.
The Pentagon lists Mr. Rumsfeld as a "nonpaid consultant," a status he needs in order to review secret and top-secret documents, the official said.
Mr. Rumsfeld and his aides, who include close adviser Stephen Cambone, are sifting through the thousands of pages of documents generated during his tenure.
The Pentagon official said former secretaries are entitled to a transition office to sort papers, some of which can be taken with them for a library, for archives or to write a book.
The transition office has raised some eyebrows inside the Pentagon. Some question the size of the staff, which includes two military officers and two enlisted men. They also ask why the sorting could not have been done from the time Mr. Rumsfeld resigned Nov. 8 to when he left the building Dec. 18.
The Pentagon official, who asked not to be named, said Mr. Rumsfeld served nearly six years as secretary, more than any other defense chief but one, meaning he accumulated an above-average pile of paper.
What's more, Mr. Rumsfeld managed the bureaucracy via "snowflakes," his typed directives on white paper that fell all over the Pentagon by the hundreds.
Mr. Rumsfeld, who resigned under pressure after Republicans lost control of Congress in an election largely decided on the stalemated Iraq war, reportedly is undecided about his long-term plans. But he thinks he has a lot to contribute in the debate over new ideas and national security. He has talked about writing a book and articles on foreign affairs, but he has made no final decision.
Mr. Rumsfeld's two immediate predecessors handled their transitions differently.
William Cohen, President Clinton's last defense secretary, went straight to his new consulting firm in Washington, said a top adviser, Robert Tyrer.
The Pentagon set up an office with two military personnel to sort through his papers for about six weeks.
"It was useful to have a place to make sure things were sorted correctly and all issues of classification strictly reviewed and observed," said Mr. Tyrer, who is now president of the Cohen Group.
The unclassified documents were transferred to the University of Maine's William S. Cohen Center, he said.
Mr. Cohen's predecessor, William Perry, left office in January 1997 and returned immediately to his home state of California. He did not open a transition office in Washington. He began teaching at Stanford University, said Deborah Gordon, his spokeswoman.
His papers arrived in compact disc form and were deposited at the Hoover Institution on the Stanford campus, she said.
Welcome to Thetruthnews.info
From the Desk of Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton:
Clinton Corruption – Everything that goes around…
It’s official. This week, Hillary Clinton threw her hat into the ring of contenders for the Democratic nomination for president in 2008. Now, the American people will take a long, hard look at Hillary’s record as they weigh her candidacy. And any discussion of Hillary Clinton’s record begins and ends with her alleged crimes and ethical transgressions.
Judicial Watch, of course, has been pursuing both Hillary and Bill Clinton since its inception, launching numerous investigations and lawsuits. In fact, according to Time magazine’s Margaret Carlson, “Thanks in no small part to Judicial Watch, Hillary Clinton may be the most investigated person in the history of the Republic.” (I’ll take that as a compliment.) This effort continues today with our investigation of the records at the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas. But here is just a partial summary of Clinton scandals that are relevant to Hillary’s candidacy, as so many questions remain unanswered:
Bribery and Extortion: According to sworn testimony in federal court, Hillary Clinton devised a scheme to sell public, taxpayer-financed trade missions in exchange for campaign contributions to the Democratic Party and the 1996 Clinton reelection effort.
Filegate: In the early 1990’s, the Clinton White House violated the privacy rights of their perceived political enemies by “stealing” over 900 FBI files of the Reagan and first Bush administration staffers and using the information to destroy their credibility. Judicial Watch’s sued Hillary Clinton in federal court over this scheme, as she evidently was its mastermind.
Pardongate: In the last days of his presidency, former President Clinton granted 140 pardons and commuted 36 sentences. The pardons were for individuals who had paid large fees to Clinton associates. Hugh Rodham, brother of Hillary Rodham Clinton, accepted $400,000 after successfully lobbying his brother-in-law for clemency for two felons. Anthony Rodham, Hillary’s other brother, has also been accused of illicitly brokering another pardon deal.
Campaign Finance Scandal: Hillary Clinton’s campaign failed to properly disclose more than $2 million in contributions to her New York Senate 2000 campaign. Hillary’s National Finance Director, David Rosen, was indicted for his role in the scandal (though later acquitted after the Bush administration watered down his prosecution by keeping Hillary Clinton out his criminal trial). And in response to a complaint filed by Judicial Watch, the Federal Election Commission fined Senator Hillary Clinton’s fundraising operation $35,000 for failing to accurately report the contributions.
Clinton Sex Scandal and Character Assassination: Hillary Clinton personally orchestrated media campaigns to slander the women who had allegedly been sexually and otherwise abused by her husband. One such woman, Gennifer Flowers, was subjected to a vicious smear campaign orchestrated by Hillary Clinton and carried out by former Clinton administration aides James Carville and George Stephanopoulos.
I could go on and on. Cattle futures, perjury on the Travel Office firings, hiring private investigators, selling policy to communist Chinese generals and their agents, Whitewater, Vince Foster, and all the rest. Hillary has been angling for the presidency since her corrupt husband took the oath, and certainly before then. Their crimes have all been means to keep and obtain power. So we can expect more of the same in a Hillary candidacy.
Judicial Watch does not endorse nor oppose candidates for public office. Hillary is free to run for president. But Judicial Watch is also free to continue to pursue accountability for her many crimes and ethical transgressions, past and present. Hillary Clinton is the most powerful corrupt politician in the country and much attention should be paid to this corruption, whether or not she is running for office. If you would like more information on our efforts in this regard, be sure to check out the Hillary Watch section of our Internet site. And keep reading this Update for the latest news.
