US to Attack Iran End of March



A top Russian parliamentary leader has told Ekho Moskvy radio station that an attack on Iran is inevitable and that it will occur on March 28th. The leader of the Liberal Democrats Vladimir Zhirinovsky also believes that the Muslim riots were orchestrated by the US to garner European backing for the military strike.

Rhetoric has heated significantly in the past week with Donald Rumsfeld yesterday warning that a military option was on the table, echoing the comments of Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist who said that the US was prepared to take military action.

Also, Israeli acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert stated that Iran would pay "a very heavy price" if the Islamic Republic defiantly resumes full-scale uranium enrichment to build nuclear weapons.

Zhirinovsky told the Russian radio station that, "The war is inevitable because the Americans want this war. Any country claiming a leading position in the world will need to wage wars. Otherwise it will simply not be able to retain its leading position."

"The date for the strike is already known ? it is the election day in Israel (March 28). It is also known how much that war will cost,? said Zhirinovsky.

Commenting on the Muslim riots sweeping the Middle East and Europe, Zhirinovsky (pictured above) said that the publication of the offensive cartoons was a planned psyop on the part of the US and aimed to ?provoke a row between Europe and the Islamic world?.

?It will all end with European countries thanking the United States and paying, and giving soldiers,? said Zhirinovsky.

The possible inorganic manufactured nature of the riots has to be seriously considered. The three most offensive cartoons that caused the outrage were not even printed in the Danish Jyllands-Posten newspaper but were added in and handed out by Danish imams who ?circulated the images to brethren in Muslim countries,? according to the London Telegraph.

It also appears highly suspicious that Muslims in Gaza City and other places had gained access to a plentiful supply of Danish flags to burn in front of the waiting world media as soon as the controversy broke out.

It now comes to light that Merete Eldrup, managing director of JP/Politikens Hus, the company that published the cartoons, is the wife of Anders Eldrup. Anders Eldrup is a Bilderberg member who has attended the last five Bilderberg meetings. The Bilderberg Group is a shadowy organization that meets once a year to steer global policy. It is now widely acknowledged that Bilderberg set the date for the March 2003 invasion of Iraq.

The violent demonstrations, on the back of last November's French riots, are clearly having the effect of hardening European sympathy towards Muslims, even as the governments of major European countries open the floodgates to mass immigration. This greases the skids for an accelerated invasion of Iran who yesterday announced they were cutting trade with Denmark over the offensive cartoons.

Director of the Russian Political Research Institute Sergei Markov previously warned that Israel was likely to conduct air strikes against Iran in the spring.

The window of opportunity seems to be forming for the US and Israel. The White House meeting memo proves that UN consultations and possible sanctions are mere window dressing for a plan of action that has already been decided upon. What remains to be seen is if the US or Israel will attempt to manufacture a staged war provocation to goad the Iranians into signing their own death warrant. The memo, released by QC Philippe Sands, contained details of a discussion between Tony Blair and George Bush where a plan to paint a US spy plane in UN colors and fly it low over Iraq in the hope that Saddam would order it shot down was debated.


Man its Iraq all over again :frowning:
Im getting sick on this world and the shit the USA is doing im going to go and live in a cave for a while, find a good woman, a good cave and just chill for about 10-20 years, and prey every day that the USA stops attacking people.

If you see it from Iran's side i can see why they want nukes cos there is some crazy invading country at its door step killing its next door neighbour, shit i would want as many nukes as i could if i was them.

Its not like there going to use them it would just put them at the level of India and pakistan and such so they can say hey get out of my face and people will listern and leave them alone.

And im sure we will be hearing about a million news storys about how bad a country Iran is and rar rar rar they need freedom rar rar rar they are evil and we are good rar rar rar same as the Iraq properganda



We just have to see how this situation plays out before we are able to make any judgements. However, if this story is accurate and its predictions are correct then we can plan on more outrageous "war on terror" bullshit. All we can do for now is just watch and wait as this story develpos.


Come on man, Vladimir Zhirinovsky? You know who he is right? He's considered a joke in Russia, he's an ultra-nationalist loon. You take what he says seriously?


Zhirinovsky is a known goon-bag. How the hell would he know any of this?


You're kidding right? It's not like they're going to use them? A country whose leader is calling for the destruction of Israel and who claims it's nuclear program is not for warheads (even though they keep trying to enrich uranium)?

Hilarious. Most of the world is worried about Iran having nuclear weapons, but somehow this is now just a U.S. conspiracy.

Methinks Judas should be fitted for tinfoil on his dome.


Maybe he could line his new cave with it?


Methinks that most of these people who pro Bush/Pro War should sign up for joining the army - infantry and combat unit.

They need people like ya'll.


Nothing would surprise me but I don't think this is going to happen. But hey, nothing would surprise me.

The people at the top in Iran are perhaps a bit extreme, to put it lightly, but generally the people of Iran are quite moderate, modern and progressive. Yes there are extremists and also a lot of clerical interference with government. And also a lot of sabre rattling from their leader. But what are they going to do?


I agree with you Kuz, if you think Iran is not going to use nuclear weapons you're dreaming.


Story=Bunk, however, the possibility of military action is real, which leads to the ability to create a bunk story like this that is plausible enough for people to buy.

I don't know the right answer or solution, but I DO truly fear an Iran with nuclear weapon capability.

I'm pretty sure that we will be a world at war when both my boys are of military age. There is just too much escalating conflict going on right now.


the problem with that is it is EXACTLY what the average german civilian did before and during WWII. they "watched and waited while the story developed" and when it was all over the ENTIRE WORLD blamed the german populace and made the german populace suffer.

it is WE AMERICAN CIVILIANS the world will blame for this in the end.

Oh, SURE, some of our "ALLIES" will say 'George Bush did it, not the American people...'... but that's only our allies, and only SOME of them..

the people who already didn't much like us (let me tell you - that is most of the world) will blame US.

You think I'm joking?

People thought I was joking when I said 9/11 was going to be used to take away many of our most basic rights.

People thought I was joking when I said (TWICE!!) that George Bush wasn't really elected. Even though it was ON THE NEWS.

People thought I was joking when I said we were going to attack Iran eventually, too.

I'm quite a joker, I guess. All of my jokes keep coming true.

Ijust wish they were the funny kind of joke, not the "loads of poor starving civilians being slaughtered and violated" kind of jokes..

Laughin' til I'm cryin'...


And they fear the fact that OTHER COUNTRIES have them, and THEY DON'T.

If I was leader of Iran, and we didn't have Nukes, what do YOU THINK my FIRST JOB would be?

Yes, of course, my first job would be "Don't be a dumbass, get some freaking nukes."

So they have fear too.

I can't wait for human beings to throw off the illusion of "leadership"

Of course, I don't expect it to happen anytime soon..


Hey, I'd be satisfied if they were willing to run through a field while I shoot at them with my hunting rifle.

They can do that for 1 month, and then make up their mind about war.

People are B L I N D.

Could you, like, ummm, "joke" about me winning the lottery, or something?


Who said anything about us going to war? Do you actually believe that article? That even if the U.S. had such plans they would share them with the likes of that nut in Russia?

You really are just looking for any thin straw to hang onto to support your viewpoint, aren't you?


The difference comes in the fact theat they have made it known that they won't hesitate to USE them. Their leader has already called for the destruction of Israel. Put 2 and 2 together and tell me where the first nuclear weapons "test" will occur.

As for getting nukes, they signed the treaty and are members of the board. The treaty doesn't mince words. It says "NO NEW DEVELOPMENT OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS". Luckily for them, being on the board allows them knowlege of when and where inspections will occur. HMMMMMM. How could that help someone who is knowingly trying to violate a treaty?


To compare the actions of the US with the actions of Nazi Germany is the height of idiocy.


There are no immediate "plans" to invade Iran..(eye roll).


Well this is news to me. I'm in the Army and do planning for such operations. WOW. Guess I better get to work. Some Russian said we were going to invade...it must be true.
