Four Years of Obsession - 'Rumors of Wars'
The world's obsession with an "impending" attack on Iran began on April 17, 2003, when it was reported that director of the semi-official Defence Policy Board, Richard Perle had vowed that, after the war in Iraq, Iran was "next". Once this story hit the news wires, we heard "You're next" leveled at Iran again and again and again for the remainder of the year.
But, Russia immediately intervened on Iran's behalf. Do you remember? Cutting Edge saw this story because we posted news daily on our Daily News Update page. I did not see this news story anywhere else.
The American victory over Iraq was complete on April 9, 2003, symbolized by the toppling of Saddam's statue in Baghdad. (Read Newsletter, January 10, 2004, Paragraph V).
On April 12, 2003, Russian President Putin issued a superpower warning to American President George Bush, telling him that Russia "would not tolerate" any more Regime Changes in the Middle East. (Read NEWS1802, "Has Russia Drawn A Line In The Sand Against America"?) Please take the few moments necessary to read this article, for it is so full of pertinent details that it became one of the most important articles we have ever written.
Of course, at this time, President Bush had all the aircraft carriers, all the airplanes and all the ground troops with which he gone to war with Iraq, still on duty in the region. If ever there was a moment when Bush should have gone to war against Iran, that would have been the time. When the President pulled American forces out of the region some months later, we knew in our hearts that he would never really attack.
We also knew that, since modern Iran is Ancient Persia, she was protected from destruction by Ezekiel 38-39, which foretells that Persia will march with the Russian-led forces against Israel at the very End of the Age. Furthermore, we felt that Russian military technology could not be defeated and/or embarrassed by Western technology, for then no Arab nations would have the confidence to march behind Russia's leading forces.
For the past four years, Cutting Edge has stood our ground against the most unbelievably frightening war rhetoric against Iran. Time and time again, President Bush assembled powerful naval forces in the waters off Iraq, only to pull them back after some weeks or months of threats. Analysts all over the world joined the journalists of Mass Media in providing the most salacious details imaginable, convincing the great majority of the peoples of the world that an attack was really going to happen this time.
How were we so sure that Iran was not going to be attacked? We have consistently operated according to the basic parameters which God revealed to me in late 1995 and early 1996, as I was preparing to put the message of Cutting Edge on the Internet. By the time we began operating in June, 1996, I had established a firm set of guidelines by which I was going to evaluate current news events to our readers.
From the beginning, Cutting Edge operated from a philosophy which comes from the old-time Maritime industry, a philosophy which has guided us well throughout the years. In the "olden" days, when a Mariner was bringing a ship into port, he would line up three (3) physical marker points. He would keep his ship moving on a straight line formed by these three points. He knew he could not rely on only two points, for two points can be lined up incorrectly. Three points kept him firmly on line and brought the ship safely into harbor.
Likewise, Cutting Edge has always attempted to line up every event, both planned and carried out, according to three (3) major points:
1) Bible Doctrine - If a supposed future event violates what
the Bible teaches about God, for example, we reject it, knowing that the event
will never happen.
2) Bible Prophecy -- This is the key point against which we measure all events which are supposed to happen. If we see that a supposed event is at odds with clearly stated prophecy, we safely know that that event will not occur, no matter the public hue and cry to the contrary. We strongly believed that Iran was protected by Ezekiel 38-39, so we steadfastly held our position that an attack from either America or Israel was highly unlikely.
3) New World Order Plan -- God has caused so many inside materials and former Satanists to come into my life at various points in the life of Cutting Edge Ministries, allowing me to understand the Plan from a very special vantage point.
Whenever we read or hear of an event supposedly planned to produce Antichrist, we line that event up with Bible Doctrine and Bible Prophecy. Using this methodology has caused us to reject many occult plans; just as God allowed Adolf Hitler to achieve only a fraction of the plans he had for Germany and the world, so also will God only allow those plans which are consistent with Doctrine and Prophecy.
When I was serving in US Army Intelligence, I was also taught to attempt to base my conclusions on as wide a basis of information as possible. Conversely, I was taught to avoid at all costs a major intelligence conclusion based on narrow facts, or on facts from only one source. We constantly looked at key events which had to occur before Antichrist could come to the world scene, knowing that an attack on Iran would immediately trigger World War III. Since key events such as the establishment of a Palestinian State had not occurred yet -- but were in the making in current world events -- we felt strongly that an attack on Iran was even more unlikely.
This combination "World View" by which we examine events and write about them has stood the test of time. For example:
* In June, 1998, we predicted that Y2K would not be the unmitigated disaster people were predicting.
* In June, 2001, we said that an attack on New York City was imminent (NEWS1509). We had read Bill Cooper's book, "Behold A Pale Horse", written in 1992, in which he quotes his Illuminati sources as saying that New York City was planned to be hit with a terrorist attack. We also knew from the Illuminati Card Game that the Twin Towers were specific targets, as was the Pentagon (NEWS1753).
Since this terrorist attack was not prohibited by Scriptural Prophecy, and it was clearly planned by the Illuminati, we believed it would happen.
* In October - November, 2001, as President Bush was ordering the invasion of Afghanistan, Cutting Edge begtan talking about the invasion of Iraq as being the next on the target list. The Illuminati Plan was plain about invading Iraq (Illuminati Plan) and Isaiah 13 seemed to us to be the Prophecy which this invasion would fulfill (Read NEWS1804 for full details)
These are just a few of the events which Cutting Edge accurately read and reported. This invasion of Iran was just the most difficult to maintain our position, because we were the lone voice, crying against a multitude of Mass Media news outlets and a huge avalanche of Conservative/Christian/Patriot groups who were quickly trumpeting any and all war rhetoric to their constituents.
Bush Drops The "Military Option" Against Iran
With this information as background, let us now discuss this most embarrassing flip-flop, about face, from President Bush.
NEWS BRIEF: "Bush Drops Military Option", DEBKAfile Intelligence, Special Report, December 3, 2007
"In a radical about-face, White House officials suddenly “discovered” Monday, Dec. 3, that Iran had halted it nuclear weapons program four years ago but has continued to enrich uranium and could have enough material to build a bomb between 2010 and 2015. This “discovery” appeared in the latest National Intelligence Estimate, together with the comment that Iran seems less determined to develop nuclear arms than previously believed."
Can you believe this startling report? After years of issuing the most dire threat reports about Iran's supposed nuclear weapons program, and threatening to plunge the world into "World War III" (Bush's words), we suddenly read an official CIA report that Iran halted its nuclear program in 2003! America's "intelligence review" about Iran was as full of holes as it was concerning the supposed Iraqi Weapons of Mass Destruction. And, we all know now how big of a lie that was!
Now, let us return to this featured report.
"DEBKAfile’s sources in Israel: In effect, Washington has taken the military option off the table at the very moment that Tehran’s Saeed Jalili slammed the door on diplomacy in the 'disastrous' conversation he held with the European Union’s Javier Solana in London, Saturday, Dec. 1. The Bush about-face .... leaves Israel high and dry ..." (Ibid.)
Yet, today, Prime Minister Olmert was seen "toeing the new company line" as he remarked, "the report only emphasizes and strengthens the need for the international community to tighten sanctions on Iran so that it will not be able to produce nuclear weapons." ("Israeli PM Olmert: Iran report emphasizes need for tightening sanctions", The Jerusalem Post, December 4, 2007)
This DEBKAfile article closes with a lament:
"In these circumstances, the White House has opted for minimizing the Iranian nuclear arms threat rather than confronting it." (Ibid.)
The official American Intelligence Review was quite specific.
NEWS BRIEF: "Text of National Intelligence Estimate - Iran: Nuclear Intentions and Capabilities", New York Times, December 3, 2007
"WASHINGTON, Dec. 3 — A new assessment by American intelligence agencies concludes that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 and that the program remains frozen, contradicting judgment two years ago that Tehran was working relentlessly toward building a nuclear bomb."
We at Cutting Edge find it very interesting that Bush's own Intelligence Review has just stated that Iran stopped its nuclear weapons program in 2003, for we have been reporting for a very long time that a Russian general had revealed in June, 2002, that Iran did have nuclear weapons (NEWS1660). After studying this issue, we believed that Iran had bought Pakistani nuclear warheads "off the shelf", and then had imported North Korean theater missiles with which to deliver them. Since Iran received Pakistani nuclear warheads in early 2002, it is logical that she would halt her own internal program in 2003!
Now, let us examine how the Bush White House Press Secretary deftly spun this news -- bad news for the President.
NEWS BRIEF: "White House Reaction to Iran Report From National Intelligence", The New York Times, December 3, 2007
"Today’s National Intelligence Estimate offers some positive news. It confirms that we were right to be worried about Iran seeking to develop nuclear weapons. It tells us that we have made progress in trying to ensure that this does not happen. But the intelligence also tells us that the risk of Iran acquiring a nuclear weapon remains a very serious problem. The estimate offers grounds for hope that the problem can be solved diplomatically — without the use of force — as the Administration has been trying to do. And it suggests that the President has the right strategy: intensified international pressure along with a willingness to negotiate a solution that serves Iranian interests while ensuring that the world will never have to face a nuclear armed Iran."
Can you imagine this unbelievable spin? Even though the President had led the consistent 4-year effort to justify a military attack on a nuclear program which Iran did intend to use only for peaceful purposes -- since they had already bought their nuclear warheads from Pakistan -- he now claims that he was trying all along to "solve" this "problem" through diplomatic means!
Iranian leadership, on the other hand, could hardly contain their glee.
NEWS BRIEF: "ANALYSIS: Iran laughing at U.S. lack of nuclear intelligence", By Amir Oren, Haaretz Correspondent, December 4, 2007
"The noise that was heard last night in Tehran, according to credible reports, was a hearty Persian laugh after looking at the U.S. intelligence service's website. The unclassified document that Director of National Intelligence, Adm. Mike McConnell published, titled 'Iran: Nuclear Intentions and Capabilities', as a laundered version that faithfully represents the greatest secrets collected by the CIA and the other U.S. intelligence services, can appropriately be called 'much evaluation on no intelligence'."
The Iranians have every right to laugh, because they have insisted for the past four years that their nuclear program was peaceful, designed merely to produce electricity for her growth needs.
On the other hand, the Bush Administration was simply following its script for these past years, for the "Threat of War" served the needs of the Illuminati very well. But, now, after the "successful" summit at Annapolis, the time evidently has come to climb down from that wooden horse and ease the level of threat. Certainly, Bush needs a year of relative peace, because he is attempting to forge a Palestinian State while simultaneously drawing down his forces from Iraq.
He also needs Iranian cooperation if he is to successfully draw the Iraq war down, because he needs positive news stories to which he can point which seem to indicate that his withdrawal is occurring because his war policy was successful. Were the American people to ever realize how disastrous Bush's war really has been, the President would have a very difficult time keeping his reputation intact as he drew forces down.
We hope this turnaround signals the end of the threats of war against Iran. The peoples of the world can use a bit of a respite.
This long 4-year period of "Rumors of Wars" has taken its toll on the mental health of tens of millions worldwide, and it clearly shows that the world is speeding through the halls of time to the End of the Age. Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
