The world has not been subjected to this high of a level of verbal attack threats against Iran -- and an equally high level of threat - response from Iran -- since the months in the Summer of 2003, when a seemingly victorious President Bush was threatening Iran by saying "You're Next" and then moving American forces into position for an attack.
The response of the crude oil price was instantaneous!
NEWS BRIEF: "Oil hits record on Israel-Iran tensions", Iran Mania News, July 1, 2008
"Oil rose more than $3 a barrel on Monday to a new record above $143, propelled by heightened market fears of conflict between Israel and Iran over Tehran's nuclear program, Reuters reported."
Did you catch that pertinent phrase? "propelled by heightened market fears of conflict between Israel and Iran over Tehran's nuclear program".
This new round of war threats against Iran could not have come at a more important time, for the market was about to kick the price of crude oil strongly downward. Listen to this financial article.
NEWS BRIEF: "Commodities Signal Bubble Bursting", Bloomberg Financial News, June 30, 2008
"Commodities finished their best first half in 35 years. The next six months may not be as rewarding because record prices for oil, copper and a dozen other raw materials may crimp consumption and encourage growth in supply ... 'We're near some kind of reckoning' in commodities, said Michael Aronstein, president of Marketfield Asset Management in New York, who returned 15 percent a year in the 1990s managing commodity investments. 'I've probably been positive for seven years and this is the first time I think there could be really a dramatic secular reversal, that it's not just a pullback'.''
What this commodities expert is saying is that the price of crude oil and other commodities is about to experience "a dramatic secular reversal ... not just a pullback."
He is right -- if you consider only market forces at work. As we have stated on many occasions, the Illuminati agenda is what is driving prices higher, not simply the marketplace.
Even Iran's president got into the act last week.
NEWS BRIEF: "Oil market is saturated: Iran president", The Sydney Morning Herald Online, June 24, 2008
"Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has dismissed calls for oil producers to ramp up production in response to high prices, saying the market is over saturated with more crude than it was consuming ... '...oil prices are going up artificially. There is a game going on behind it', said Ahmadinejad in an interview with state television..."
Of course, there is a "game" going on behind these record high oil prices! Cutting Edge has been saying this for a very long time. Indeed, this specific Illuminati agenda is revealed perfectly in the DVD, above, "Days of Hunger, Days of Chaos". Over a decade ago, Henry Kissinger stated that the Illuminati was going to use high energy prices to control nations; those days are upon us now.
This next quote from the Iranian president is quite revealing as to why a sudden upward swing in global tensions was needed -- and needed quickly -- to keep oil prices going upward.
" 'The market is now over saturated and oil is being pumped beyond consumption. Consumption growth is less than production', he said."
When the market is over-saturated, and when oil is being pumped beyond consumption, that means crude oil is sitting on the market because it is not being purchased. Oil exporters and oil refiners operate their companies for a profit, and that means heir buyers will not be purchasing unneeded crude.
Not only is a considerable quantity of crude being pumped and not being sold, but other recent articles indicate that all the extra storage facilities within the Middle East region are full to capacity. Therefore, the oil market was poised to crash and crash strongly. All these propaganda stories telling us that high global demand was the reason for the run-up in oil prices were coming apart at the seams.
Some other factor was urgently needed to keep crude oil prices from falling dramatically.
Enter the current rhetoric about a Western attack on Iran. Keep your hat on, for the ride is about to get scary.
The first event which served the purpose of ratcheting war fears upward occurred when Mass Media reports said that Israeli jets had carried out a mock air strike against Iranian targets. These Israeli jets flew the same miles westward as they would have to fly eastward were they to attack Iranian targets. The Israeli air force was conducting joint maneuvers with Greece.
NEWS BRIEF: "Greece: We did not prepare for Iran war", Press TV, 27 June 2008
"Athens has denied a report suggesting that its joint military maneuver with Israel was in 'preparation' for an aerial strike on Iran. 'The exercise has no connection with Israeli 'preparations' for an attack on Iran, as has been inaccurately reported', said Greek government spokesman Theodoros Roussopoulos ... Remarks by the Greek official follow the recent publication of a report by The New York Times, which quoted Pentagon officials as saying that over 100 Israeli F-16s and F-15s staged a maneuver over the eastern Mediterranean and greece in early June. According to the report, Israeli jets flew over 900 miles, roughly the distance from their airfields to a nuclear enrichment facility in the central Iranian city of Natanz, giving rise to speculation that Tel Aviv is making preparations for an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities."
However, flying the same amount of miles as they would if they were attacking Iranian nuclear facilities was the only military application consistent with staging a mock aerial attack. A Greek government official explained what was NOT part of the exercise which would have been necessary had the exercise been a preparation for an attack on Iran.
"Israeli planes flew at high altitudes not consistent with a military strike and the exercise had no provision for dealing with anti-aircraft fire, did not include electronic warfare or surveillance aircraft and did not involve live ammunition, the Greek official added."
Therefore, what we have here is an attempt to make the joint military exercise with Greece appear to be something it never was. But, propagandists do this kind of thing all the time. Adolf Hitler's maxim holds true today: "Truth is not what is; truth is what people perceive it to be".
Hitler also counseled that if a huge lie is told often enough, eventually most people will believe it!
Can you see how both these propaganda principles are being used daily to keep crude oil prices high?
Now, let us continue examining the propaganda stories about an impending Western attack on Iran.
NEWS BRIEF: "U.S. escalating covert operations against Iran ", The Star Online, June 29, 2008
"U.S. congressional leaders agreed late last year to President George W. Bush's funding request for a major escalation of covert operations against Iran aimed at destabilizing its leadership according to a report in The New Yorker magazine published online on Sunday. The article by reporter Seymour Hersh, from the magazine's July 7 and 14 issue, centers on a highly classified Presidential Finding signed by Bush which by U.S. law must be made known to Democratic and Republican House and Senate leaders and ranking members of the intelligence committees."
Now, this is hot news, indeed! Seymour Hersh is known as a journalist unfriendly to the Bush Administration, yet here he has received a "highly classified Presidential Finding signed by Bush". In other words, the Bush Administration has just suffered a huge intelligence breech, an intelligence failure of the highest degree! Hersh should have already been summoned to testify as to who his source was, and official Washington should be seething right now!
But, of course, this has not happened, as it usually is the case when an "intelligence failure" is simply an intentional leak.
In fact, Bush intelligence officials could pick no one better to intentionally leak this story to than Seymour Hersh, whose writings will take on an additional aura of legitimacy simply because he is seen as being such an opponent of the President!
Now, let us return to our featured story to see the specifics of this leaked report.
" 'The Finding was focused on undermining Iran's nuclear ambitions and trying to undermine the government through regime change', the article cited a person familiar with its contents as saying, and involved 'working with opposition groups and passing money'."
Hersh penned almost exactly the same type of story in April, 2006. And, of course, nothing ever materialized from that story.
As we drop down to the closing words of this news story, we find something very interesting!
"The United States is leading international efforts to rein in Iran's suspected effort to develop nuclear weapons, although Washington concedes Iran has the right to develop nuclear power for civilian uses."
Wait a minute!
Washington recognizes that Iran has a right to pursue a civilian nuclear power plant project?
Then, upon what basis are the governments of the United States and Israel threatening an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities, an attack which will devastate the world's economies? What can possibly be the basis? It cannot be the alleged threat that Iran is going to use the civilian nuclear program to facilitate her nuclear warhead program, for President Bush acknowledged last December to the whole world that American intelligence was wrong in its assessment of Iran's program and now knew that they had stopped working on their weapons program at the end of 2003! (Read full livid details in NEWS2256, entitled, "President Bush Pulls Iranian Military Option Off The Table - Completes Total 'About-Face' On The Issue".
When President Bush admitted that Iran had stopped trying to produce nuclear weapons at the end of 2003, I believed the world had seen the last of this endless and meaningless war tirade. However, the verbal threats from a variety of American and Israeli authorities has continued, almost as if Bush had never admitted to over 6 billion people on Planet Earth that Iran had no nuclear weapons development program!
Should America attack Iran now, President Bush would be under greater condemnation than he is now under for lying through his teeth to justify his attack on Iraq! I can see the robe suddenly being pulled off a naked President Bush on this issue, just as our political cartoon demonstrates, above.
Even the Arab press is beginning to take notice of the sudden intensity of the war rhetoric.
NEWS BRIEF: "War drums becoming deafening", Arab News, 1 July 2008
"THE Americans and the Israelis are acting in concert vis-à-vis Iran. The unmistakable message they are putting out loud and clear is that an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities is on the cards in the event Tehran doesn’t cave into their demands. Are they bluffing as part of an arm-twisting strategy or are they seriously planning to transform this region into an inferno?"
"... members of the Iranian leadership have indicated they don’t take the threat very seriously even though they are planning for every contingency and threatening to set the Middle East aflame if attacked."
We have noticed that every time a specific date or time period by which the assault was to be carried out comes and goes without incident, an official from either America or Israel simply sets the time period back to another period. When the attack did not occur by late September, last year, pundits immediately started talking about an attack sometime before Bush leaves office! By now, every single discerning person in the world should know that this whole sorry episode is not real, but is simply and only a "Rumors of Wars" scenario!
This next segment is most interesting!
"Suspicions that an attack might be in the pipeline were heightened after leaks supposedly forced the Israeli prime minister to admit he had secretly met with Aviam Sela, a brilliant military tactician said to be the architect of Israel’s 1981 strike on Iraq’s Osirak reactor. It is believed that Sela was asked to give his opinion on the feasibility of similarly putting Iran’s nuclear facilities out of action."
But, then, this article asks a most pertinent question:
"... why are Israelis being so upfront about their intentions when history tells us they normally strike first and answer questions later?"
This is a very good question, and the answer is simple: this attack is not a real possibility, but only a carefully orchestrated effort to keep war tensions high so crude oil prices can be kept high and going higher.
Iran has now gotten into the act by pretending to be concerned. She is not really concerned because she knows the Russian position that an attack on Iran will be an attack on Russia, thus setting the entire world aflame with a superpower global war that fits neither Biblical prophecy or the Illuminati Plan.
NEWS BRIEF: "Tehran puts on a show of strength", Asia Times, July 2, 2008
"Psychological warfare is on the rise. This weekend, a senior Iranian general, Mir-Faisal Bagherzadeh, said his country was digging 320,000 graves for American soldiers scheduled to fight in Iran. 'In implementation of the Geneva Conventions, the necessary measures are being taken to provide for the burial of enemy soldiers. We have plans to dig 15,000 to 20,000 graves for each of the border provinces, or a total of 320,000', he said, pointing out that some of them would be mass graves, if necessary."
DEBKAfile reported that these 320,000 graves were intended for the civilian casualties which are expected if the Western attackers use nuclear bunker buster bombs, a necessity because Tehran has dug deeply within the earth -- using Russian technology -- in order to bury her nuclear facilities. Then, Iran has placed a very thick concrete wall over the top of these buried bunkers.
The reality is that America does not even have 320,000 soldiers with which to launch a ground invasion. Given the size and capability of the Iranian forces, and given the rugged terrain over which any ground attack would have to cover, a force of up to one million men might be required. President Bush could not raise this kind of force. Period. End of Paragraph!
Cutting Edge has long maintained that there will be NO attack on Iran -- in any way, shape or form. We have listed our reasons before and do so again here.
THERE WILL BE NO ATTACK ON IRAN FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS
1) We do not have the Naval forces with the capability needed to successfully attack Iran - Read NEWS2026, entitled, "16 U.S. NAVAL SHIPS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PERSIAN GULF! INCLUDES ONE AIRCRAFT CARRIER DESTROYED -- Recent War Games Disaster"
We also invite you to read this more recent article on the myth of American naval warfare invincibility.
NEWS BRIEF: "Myth Of US Invincibility Floats In The Persian Gulf", Rense.com, 4-16-2005
Therefore, when you read headlines like the one last week when an American official stated that America "would not allow" Iran to close the Strait of Hormuz, you must realize that his bravado is totally out of touch with reality.
2) Russia has now made herself the Protectorate of Iran -- Read NEWS2003, entitled, "RUSSIAN CHECKMATE IN THE MIDDLE EAST?"
On April 12, 2003, Russia's Putin warned President Bush that he would not allow any more military strikes, invasions and/or "Regime Changes" in the Middle East. Were America to successfully attack Iran, Russian influence would be totally destroyed.
In fact, last Fall, President Putin announced that a Western attack on Iran would be considered an attack on Russia herself. Therefore, any attack of whatever magnitude would immediately launch World War III. No President will totally ruin the economies of the world by causing a global war with Russia, especially over an issue so completely bogus as this one.
Russia can back up her bold warnings against American attack because she possesses the vastly superior Scalar Weapons system. In this article, we shall speak of one such weapons system: Scalar weapons technology. We shall take much of our information from Lt. Colonel Thomas E. Bearden, writing in his book, Oblivion, pictured at the left.
But, first, we want to quote Colonel Byron Weeks, MD, USAF, MC, Retired Reserve, in a warning he issued October 5, 2002, remarks we carried in Daily News Updates, not once, but several times. Listen to Col. Weeks:
"So-called Imperial America very probably does not have the means to back up it´s various attempts to control the world. We are weaker now than we have ever been. Bush´s bravado is empty, and even if we do have the Tesla howitzer, so do Russia and China, and Russia has had scalar EM weapons longer--long enough to have tried and tested various forms of them many times. But although we evidently do have some HAARP powered weapons, physicist LTC Thomas Bearden says we don´t have much, if any, and our scalar weaponry is not yet ready to deploy effectively ...."
"If attacked, our ground forces will be as vulnerable as sitting ducks, out on the hot sandy desert with no place to hide. America´s cities and outmoded ABM systems will not protect us. If we attack Iraq, which now seems inevitable, we can expect to be attacked on all sides, with nuclear bombs, neutron bombs, EMPs, and the longitudinal electromagnetic interferometer waves that will come down upon us as fire from heaven. America will burn ..."
"America will burn"!
If she so desires, Russia can protect all Iranian targets through her superior Scalar bubble shield called the Tesla Dome, either over huge target areas or over much smaller areas like individual tanks. While America's HAARP system can erect a Tesla Dome, such a dome is easily penetrated and destroyed by the Scalar Waves.
3) Iranian government seems protected from overthrow by the Ezekiel 38-39 prophecies
4) Iran's targets are deeply buried and widely dispersed. Listen to the boasts of an Iranian top commander in Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, because his facts were recently validated by an American general.
NEWS BRIEF: "Iran says 300 nuclear sites scattered across country", Iran Focus, January 15, 2006
"Tehran, Iran, Jan. 15 – A top commander in Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) said on Sunday that the Islamic Republic has more than 300 nuclear sites scattered across the country .. The senior IRGC commander said that despite the high costs of construction and maintenance of nuclear sites, these installations have been dispersed in more than 300 sites across the country."
Additionally, many of these 300 nuclear facilities are buried deeply underground, making their elimination very difficult, even if Russia chose not to defend Iranian targets with her Scalar Weaponry.
American commanders are well aware of the limitations and difficulties of such an attack. Let us examine remarks recently made by a top American commander, admitting that US forces would have a very difficult time attacking and destroying Iran's facilities.
NEWS BRIEF: "Iran favors asymmetric strategy in joust with US", Iran Mania, September 20, 2006
"LONDON, September 20 (IranMania) - According to an AFP report, Tehran has the most powerful military in the Middle East, but is relying on unconventional means to counter superior US military might in the region, a top US commander said. General John Abizaid, chief of the US Central Command, refused to discuss US military planning in response to a mounting confrontation with Iran over its nuclear program."
"... the commander of US forces in the region laid out capabilities Iran has that US military planners must reckon with."
"Number One, they have naval capacity to temporarily block the Straits of Hormuz, and interfere with global commerce if they should choose to do so," Abizaid said. About 40% of the world's oil transits through the straits at the entrance to the Gulf. Shutting it down would cause world prices to skyrocket..."
In fact, the economies of the Western world -- beginning with the American -- would instantly collapse. While such a collapse is planned, it is not to occur before the beginning of the World War III which will produce Antichrist. That war seems to be some distance in the future, so it would seem that Bush cannot afford to launch an attack which would precipitate such a collapse ahead of schedule.
"Number Two, they've got a substantial missile force that can do a lot of damage to our friends and partners in the region"
"Number Three, they have a pretty robust terrorist surrogate arm that could in the event of hostilities cause problems not only in the Middle East but globally."
Iran has constantly threatened to activate a world-wide terrorist attacks within American should she be attacked. Remember the response of Iranian leadership to the troubles the Federal Government experienced in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina?In NEWS2074, entitled, "IRAN'S LEADERSHIP THREATENS THE U.S. WITH DEVASTATION, SAYING THEY LEARNED VALUABLE STRATEGIC LESSONS FROM THE GOVERNMENT RESPONSE TO HURRICANE KATRINA", we reported that the Iranian leadership noted the bungling and incompetence of the Federal Government in the Katrina aftermath, and learned exactly in what areas the government was vulnerable. Do not be deceived: Iran controls much of the world's Islamic terrorist cells, and will hit hard if we attack her nuclear facilities.
"... Number Four, they have a very substantial land army that, while it's not offensively worrying, is certainly capable of conducting asymmetric warfare."
5) This entire crisis is sheer propaganda, and every Western leader knows it.
We would like to end our discussion here. During all this huffing and puffing during the past five years, American leadership knows that Iran already possesses nuclear bombs and the capacity to deliver them. It seems clear that Iran purchased her nuclear bombs "off-the-shelf" from Pakistan in the late 1990's and the missiles from North Korea. Remember our oft-quoted remark from a Russian general in mid-2002, as he admitted that Iran possessed nuclear bombs.
Quoting excerpts from NEWS1660, "MUSHROOM CLOUDS IN THE MIDDLE EAST? Part 2"
Therefore, this entire drumbeat is sheer propaganda -- part of the Illuminati Plan. Therefore, since President Bush, Vice President Cheney, and Defense Secretary Rumsfeld are simply and only acting out their scripted parts in this global plan, we know they are not going to "go off half-cocked". Iran will be attacked only if the Illuminati Plan and Bible prophecy allows it.
However, President Bush is certainly accomplishing one other huge prophetic goal by threatening Iran incessantly and by sending such a huge armada of naval power to steam off her shores: she is driving Iran further and further into the arms of the Russian Bear. Once the Russia Bear is seen delivering Iran from the clutches of the American Eagle, Iranian leadership will be tightly tied to the Russian plan -- including the plan to lead an invading force against Israel (Ezekiel 38-39).
Please take a moment to read our article on this subject: NEWS2014, "PRESIDENT BUSH SEEMS TO BE DRIVING IRAN (PERSIA) INTO THE ARMS OF RUSSIA AND EUROPE, JUST AS PROPHECY FORETELLS!"
We shall have to wait to see how this scenario plays out. Is it "War" or just "Rumors of War"? we believe it to be just "Rumors of War" designed to keep crude oil prices as high as the Illuminati wants it to be, for as long as they want it to be!
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.
