The Wake-up may be too late


Phillip Giraldi

Is it possible that Americans are finally waking up to the dangers resulting from Washington’s involvement in Israel’s foreign policy? In the New York Times on June 24th there was an astonishing feature opinion piece by Professor Misha Glenny writing from London about “A Weapon We Can’t Control.” The editorial slammed the “decision by the United States and Israel to develop and then deploy the Stuxnet computer worm against an Iranian nuclear facility,” describing the development as a “significant and dangerous turning point in the gradual militarization of the internet.” Glenny warned that to use such a devastating weapon in peacetime will “very likely lead to the spread of similar and still more powerful offensive cyberweaponry across the Internet,” also noting that “virus developers generally lose control of their inventions, which will inevitably seek out and attack the networks of innocent parties.”
Glenny also mentioned the second generation Flame virus, developed jointly by Israel and the US, and which has now spread to computers throughout the Middle East.
On the same day in the same issue of the Times, Jimmy Carter chimed in with an op-ed, “A Cruel and Unusual Record,” which asserted that “Revelations that top officials are targeting people to be assassinated abroad, including American citizens, are only the most recent, disturbing proof of how far our nation’s violation of human rights has extended.” Carter did not mention Israel or name President Obama, but the decade long transition of the United States into a nation that believes itself to be above the law, following the Israeli example, would have been all too clear for the reader.
One day before the editorial and op-ed’s appearance, there was also another emperor’s new clothes moment at the Times. Regular columnist Nicholas Kristof had just completed a trip across Iran with his family in tow. And guess what? He found in “Not-So-Crazy in Tehran” that Iran was a “complex country,” not a police state, has a “vigorous parliament and news media,” and most university students are women who later obtain important jobs after graduation. Kristof’s advice? “Let’s not bluster…or operate on caricatures. And let’s not choose bombs over sanctions…”
I would add that it is about time that people in the United States begin to realize that unlimited support of Israel has turned US foreign policy into the poison that is bidding to destroy the republic.
Alas, over the same weekend that the Times was possibly coming to its senses, Mitt Romney was meeting in Park City Utah with his large donors. At a breakout session to discuss his support of Israel he revealed that he speaks regularly with Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren to get advice on the Middle East. Unseemly does not begin to describe such an arrangement, as Oren is not exactly a disinterested party re the advice he is giving. Oh, and Bill Kristol and Michael Chertoff also spoke to the pro-Israel group.

    They’ll NEVER wake up.. Know why?

    Because the stuxnet virus PREVENTED the safety measures in Fukushima, and NOW we’re all just waiting to die a slow painful death.

    I’m completely convinced that Israel will continue to successfully deceive everyone for the rest of our lives… About 10 years

    –note from me, MG–‘Dude’, why not just use your regular call-sign, meaning ‘historian’?

    Thank you for this link. I wonder if Mitt Romney has met with this creature as well?

    I’ve noticed that people who only a year ago who chided me as anti-semitic are indeed beginning to see the light.

    This is remarkable after a lifetime of US and zionist propaganda and monopoly of media.

    Oh, so now that people have awoken it is time to turn this against the people. So, asleep or awake doesn’t matter. Well it does. The power is in unplugging the west. As the west gets more noxious, the east is more appealing. If the west cuts us off from the east, woe is the west, and the east wins in every way. minus Israel which is as east as west is east.

    Right after 9/11 no body would dare to talk about the subject for fear of being labeled “terrorist”, anti “American”. Many of us kept silent and only talk about it with absolute discretion but times have changed. Now I can hear people talking about Israel and US relations and how harmfull this relations have been. Many Americans already know who did 9/11 and why our government is in debt with more than the so called 16.5 trillion dollars. And all these wars the US is fighting in favor of Israel. The dead and destruction Israel has provoked in the last 10 years including more than 10 thousand American soldiers.

    Well the reason why americans are so brain washed, by the jewish mafia, is that these criminals infiltrated, the church a very long time ago, and have been preaching to the ignorant sheep, that the jews are the “CHOSEN PEOPLE OF GOD” and then puting fear on them that god will punish those that stand against these criminals, when in reality the CHOSEN PEOLE OF GOD THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE, CHOSE THE ONES THAT BELIVED THE MESSAGE THAT JESUS CHRIST BROUGHT TO US AND THE NEW COVENANT( contract) WAS MADE WITH HUMANITY. that those who repented and belived his message were to be saved. the preachers, quote the OLD TESTAMENT MORE, ib order to high light the miricals of GOD, AND THE INFINITE TIMES OUR LORD FORGAVE ISRAEL, but they don’t quote that GOD DIVORCED THE JEWS MORE THAN 490+ YRS BEFORE JESUS CHRIST CAME TO EARTH AS A SERVANT. THAT IS WHY THE ZIONIST CHRISTIANS HAVE BEEN DECIVED, AND INSTEAD OF BELIVING GOD AND WHAT JESUS SAYS IN HIS WORDS THEY CHOSE TO BELIVE THE PREACHERS THAT KEEP COLLECTING THEIR THIES AND SENDING THAT MONEY TO ISRAEL

    Apparently having a degree in biochemistry, political science, history, and psychology gets you labeled as insane around here. Plus this was a good way to get you to use the term “Dude” in context

    The reason the Jews want Iran destroyed is precisely because it is a sophisticated, well-run country, a civilized country with an ancient history & culture. The Jews will not stand for that. The Gentiles must “scurry around like cockroaches” & for every nation they destroy, this is exactly what happens. The Jews themselves have no real history except the myths of Torah. This isn’t history. They’ve never produced a thriving culture but have only piggy-backed on the culture of others. They’ve never produced great art. Ancient Jews did not leave behind distinctive artifacts. They don’t create anything. These deficiencies fill them with hatred & jealousy.

    Firebug. The FIRST HALF of the bible IS the Talmud or Torah or the old testament or whatever you wanna call it. (I call it sci-fi/fantasy)

    Christianity = PseudoJudaism… Haven’t you noticed the cannibalistic overtones? With all the blood drinking and flesh eating

  20. #20 by ruby22-kate on June 28, 2012 - 2:44 pm

    Hi Dude, as you are a historian & psychologist you should know better than to claim the Torah & Talmud are the same.
    You should probably know that trying to persuade a committed Christian, Muslim or Jew that their holy books are science fiction is usually futile.

    I think you should begin to educate yourself in communication, everyone wants to be understood and often your posts are more likely to end a conversation than to begin one.
    I suspect you, with your impressive education, have a lot to say that is valuable.

    I don’t mean to offend you, I am hoping you will read this in the spirit of constructive criticism, to improve your skills.

    remember the old adage ‘you catch more flies with honey than vinegar.’ and please don’t shoot the messenger (me)

    with respect, kate

    Understood. But I must tell you that Ive seen too many people NOT care about the difference between Star Wars and Star Trek.

    And for clarity: The Torah is also known as The Pentateuch, or the entire body of Jewish religious literature, law and teaching as contained chiefly in the Old Testament and Talmud.

    We should all, wholeheartedly believe nonsense written by cavemen, with NO anthropological evidence whatsoever. In fact, now that I think about it… Fanaticism isn’t prevalent enough in our society

    Ooops. Forgot to change my name to Dude on my iPhone

    You’re welcome Sazzy. I learned of this meeting from someone who still has family in Iran…….

    Newt Gringrich should be arrested for treason upon re-entering the U.S……….if I was the boss, I’d cuff ‘em.

  24. #24 by ruby22-kate on June 28, 2012 - 5:54 pm

    @Dude, I hope I didn’t hurt your feelings, not my intent. I’m going to stop meddling Dude, as no matter how I try to be inoffensive, it is usually taken as a jab.

    Perhaps it is I who should go to school to learn how to communicate better.
