Two New Wars for Us


By Philip Giraldi

 Normally Washington bureaucracies shut down in August, but this year the intelligence community was working flat out to develop information on two crises in the Middle East. One official describes a deep sense of foreboding, recalling NSC Counter Terrorism Security Group chairman Richard Clarke’s description of walking around the West Wing in August 2001 with his “hair on fire.”

Syria is on the frontburner as a shooting war in which the U.S. is already clandestinely involved. The attempt to come up with a consensus National Intelligence Estimate on the crisis has been put on hold, both because the situation is too volatile and because new intelligence paints an increasingly dark picture of the insurgency. A number of atrocities against civilians previously attributed to the Assad government are now known to be the work of the rebels, who are becoming less reticent about their plans to eliminate all regime supporters, which would include most Alawites as well as many in the Christian community. U.S. intelligence has also come to the conclusion that rebel militias are heavily infiltrated and frequently commanded by jihadis linked to al-Qaeda. Attempts by CIA officers to discuss the issue with the rebels’ political representatives in Lebanon and Turkey have been blown off or deferred, suggesting that the movement’s leadership might be fully complicit. There is also increasing concern about a domino effect spreading unrest to Lebanon. Even the Turks are backing away from more direct involvement, worried that major refugee and Kurdish-based terrorism problems are developing.

The Iran crisis is more troublesome because the possible consequences are graver. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta traveled to Israel at the end of July to get a commitment from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not to attack Iran before America’s elections. A commitment was not forthcoming, with Netanyahu demanding as quid pro quo that Washington publicly break off negotiations with Iran. Intelligence analysts in Washington are split 50-50 over whether Netanyahu is bluffing. Some analysts are convinced that an attack will come in October when the weather is still good in the region and at a point when President Obama will have no choice politically but to support the Israelis. There has been some intelligence suggesting that Israel has already made the decision, fearing that Obama will ratchet down his tolerance for a military option whether he wins or loses. Reports suggest that Israeli leaders privately view Mitt Romney as useful but cautious, even timid, and do not trust his overblown and politically motivated assurances of support if war were to break out.

    Recent news BiBI accepts iran has legitimate right to enrich to 20%, hitlery clinton says the US will not impose deadlines on iran and harper claims anything iran will do after closing diplomatic relations with them will not suprise him. Im sensing a FALSE FLAG and with the military drill coming up in October that could be their target.

    This Highlights the degree of Jew control of America at this time .

    Even the Intelligence Agencies and the Military of the United States are cowering in fear of Israelie aggression .

    If it were not so , they would go to war against Israel , for even trying to force the US into a war for
    Israelie aggression . They would not sit by idly , while a war was forced upon them . Especially not a war that would be not in the interest of America , but rather a war that would be disastrous for America even if a military victory was possible .

    This underscores the fact that America needs a housecleaning that only a real revolution can bring about . The heavy infiltration of the US , by Israelie fifth columnists , has gone so far as to prevent any effective Government for the interest of Americans . . The time for revolution is at hand .

    Thanks for that video 30.06…it goes to further show that the “po’ Jooz” are not an oppressed people 1 iota…they perpetuate the holohoax lie to gain sympathy from the GOYIM, then go behind our back and make money hand over fist- again at the hand of the gentile/goyim have the gentile/goyim make their money for them..

    Like Chess Champion Bobby Fischer said: Jews don’t work for their money- their soft and flabby, and have the gentile/goyim make their money for them.. Hard work would kill them…that is why Hitler placed them in Work Camps- to change their ways…

    The sign above one of Hitler’s work camps for the Jews said: “Arbecht Macht Frei” which means “WORK MAKES YOU FREE” in German…. Hitler was a oracle who, like our forefathers here in America SEEN the future, and what PARASITES LIKE THESE PEOPLE HAVE BECOME IN AMERICA, can do to a COUNTRY!

    Here is 1 of many videos by Chess champion Bobby Fischer-who is a jew, telling and WARNING Americans of the usurpious and parasitic jewry thats overtaking and permeating America!
