(March 16, 2015-LaRouche PAC)–Highly-placed American and Israeli intelligence sources have confirmed and elaborated on the recent Aluf Benn report that, contrary to all major media accounts, U.S. President Barack Obama, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and British Prime Minister David Cameron are all in sync on plans for an immediate military strike against Iran, ultimately targeted against Russia and China. In effect, the troika are all lying through their teeth to create the conditions for a thermonuclear world war unless Moscow and Beijing capitulate to the full and immediate bailout of the bankrupt imperial financial system and the abandonment of any defense of true national sovereignty.
According to one senior U.S. intelligence official, during their White House meeting in early March, President Obama “gave Netanyahu the kitchen sink,” promising critical military hardware to enhance Israel’s strike capability against Iran. Among the equipment now being rushed to Israel are two additional airborne tankers for mid-air refueling, updated bunker-buster bombs, and jamming equipment to penetrate Iranian air defenses. The U.S. and Israeli governments are also negotiating on how to deploy SAR (search and rescue) teams in adjacent countries to Iran, in expectation that some Israeli fighters will be shot down or will crash, requiring rescuing of crew members who survive. According to both U.S. and Israeli accounts, plans are to pre-position SAR teams in the Kurdish region of Iraq and in the bordering areas of Azerbaijan. What remains to be determined is whether those SAR teams will be Israeli or American Special Forces, according to the Israeli source.
Furthermore, the U.S. and Israel are already running a “seamless warroom” engaged in cyber attacks against Iran’s critical infrastructure. The most well-known incident of such cyberwarfare is the stuxnet computer virus that attacked the control systems for the centrifuge cascades at the Natanz and Fordo facilities in Iran. According to one Israeli source, Defense Minister Ehud Barak has ordered his cyberwar team to give him “ten hours of quiet,” meaning the shutdown of the Iranian electical power grid, covering the period required for the raids.
Reportedly, the only actual point of dispute between Netanyahu and Obama during their three-hour Oval Office session on March 5 was over the continuation of targeted assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists during the period of the P5+1 negotiations, set to resume in Turkey in the next few weeks. According to an Israeli source, Netanyahu was adamant that the killings would not be halted.
A very senior retired U.S. military intelligence official confirmed that he is absolutely certain that there has been no roll-back in the time frame for the launching of general war, starting with an attack on Iran. He cautioned that, while Defense Secretary Leon Panetta remains in full agreement with General Martin Dempsey and the other members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff that war must be prevented at all costs, if the U.S. military is ordered by President Obama to launch attacks, there is no guarantee that the military command will refuse.
Thus, as Lyndon LaRouche has repeatedly demanded since before the assassination of Muammar Qaddafi, the only durable war avoidance action is the immediate removal of President Obama from office, by impeachment or by the invoking of Section 4 of the 25th Amendment. The collective lies of Obama, Cameron and Netanyahu are all aimed at lulling war opponents into the belief that the launch date for a possible World War III has been rolled back to some time past the November U.S. elections. Nothing could be further from the truth!
