Cheney Orders Media To Sell Attack On Iran


Cheney Orders Media To Sell Attack On Iran

Fox News, Wall Street Journal instructed to launch PR blitz for upcoming military strike

Dick Cheney has ordered top Neo-Con media outlets, including Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, to unleash a PR blitz to sell a war with Iran from today, according to Barnett Rubin, the highly respected Afghanistan expert at New York University.

The New Yorker magazine reports that Rubin had a conversation with a member of a top neoconservative institution in Washington, who told him that “instructions” had been passed on from the Office of the Vice-President to roll out a campaign for war with Iran in the week after Labor Day.

“It will be coordinated with the American Enterprise Institute, the Wall Street Journal, the Weekly Standard, Commentary, Fox, and the usual suspects, writes Rubin, “It will be heavy sustained assault on the airwaves, designed to knock public sentiment into a position from which a war can be maintained. Evidently they don’t think they’ll ever get majority support for this—they want something like 35-40 percent support, which in their book is “plenty.”

Rubin subsequently confirmed with a second source that the propaganda coup had been launched and the individual, another top Neo-Con at a major think tank, had this to say about it: “I am a Republican. I am a conservative. But I’m not a raging lunatic. This is lunatic.”

An organized mass media campaign to propagandize for a military strike on Iran mirrors exactly what happened in late 2002 in preparation for the invasion of Iraq and would be seen as par for the course in anticipation of an attack that presidential candidate Ron Paul amongst other expert observers fear will take place within 12 months.

President Bush met directly with talk radio idealogues at the White House last year to push the Neo-Con agenda. Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Neal Boortz and Michael Medved (pictured below) amongst others all attended and received their talking points straight from the President’s mouth.

Considering the history of the sordid “fake news” scandal, where millions of dollars were used to create pre-packaged government press releases disguised as news, along with the Armstrong Williams farce, it should surprise no one that such “instructions” are now being handed out to prepare the public for another military invasion.

The issuance of orders for Neo-Con mass media arms to push for an assault on Iran also puts the U.S. on red alert for a terror attack, whether real or manufactured, which Dick Cheney has already promised will immediately be blamed on Iran no matter who the real culprits are.

On August 1st, 2005 the American Conservative reported that Cheney had tasked the United States Strategic Command (STRATCOM) with drawing up a contingency plan to be employed in response to another 9/11-type terrorist attack on the United States. The plan involved a massive air strike on Iran which included the use of nuclear weapons.

The publication reported that, “The response is not conditional on Iran actually being involved in the act of terrorism directed against the United States,” meaning that any such attack will immediately be blamed on Iran and any evidence to the contrary will be buried.

The London Times reported on Sunday that the Pentagon had finalized plans for a 3 day blitz designed to annihilate 1,200 targets in Iran and destroy the country’s military capability.

Alexis Debat, director of terrorism and national security at the Nixon Center, said last week that US military planners were not preparing for “pinprick strikes” against Iran’s nuclear facilities. “They’re about taking out the entire Iranian military,” he said.

Debat was speaking at a meeting organised by The National Interest, a conservative foreign policy journal. He told The Sunday Times that the US military had concluded: “Whether you go for pinprick strikes or all-out military action, the reaction from the Iranians will be the same.” It was, he added, a “very legitimate strategic calculus”.

Rhetoric regarding a potential military attack on Iran has heated again over the past week, with President Bush having warned of the risk of a “nuclear holocaust” if the country was allowed to acquire nuclear capability.

In a speech last Monday, French President Nicolas Sarkozy said that a diplomatic push by the world’s powers to rein in Tehran’s nuclear program was the only alternative to “an Iranian bomb or the bombing of Iran.”

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad subsequently stated that a U.S. attack on Iran was “impossible” due to U.S. troops being tied down in Afghanistan and Iraq. Yesterday, he claimed to have proof that the U.S. were not planning to attack, bizarrely citing his mathematical skills as an engineer and faith in God.

A January poll by Ipsos found that 40% of Americans thought it likely that Iran would be attacked by the end of the year. The U.S. has stationed three aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf, the Nimitz, a nuclear-powered carrier, John C. Stennis Strike Group, and Dwight D. Eisenhower, a relief carrier.

The U.S. government is openly funding and supporting the activities of Jundullah, a Sunni Al-Qaeda terrorist group formerly headed by the alleged mastermind of 9/11, to carry out bombings in Iran and destabilize Ahmadinejad’s power base.

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard military was recently declared to be a terrorist organization by the White House, another ominous sign that an attack is being readied.

 

Fox News Responds To Cheney Call For Iran Attack PR Blitz
The propaganda flows from the administration’s favourite warmongering mouthpiece

Following yesterday’s revelation that Dick Cheney has ordered top Neo-Con media outlets to unleash a PR blitz to sell a war with Iran, Fox News has already responded with two prime time slots devoted to all out warmongering propaganda in favour of a strike on Iran’s facilities.

The New Yorker magazine reported yesterday that Barnett Rubin, the highly respected Afghanistan expert at New York University, had a conversation with a member of a top neoconservative institution in Washington, who told him that “instructions” had been passed on from the Office of the Vice-President to roll out a campaign for war with Iran in the week after Labor Day.

“It will be coordinated with the American Enterprise Institute, the Wall Street Journal, the Weekly Standard, Commentary, Fox, and the usual suspects, writes Rubin, “It will be heavy sustained assault on the airwaves, designed to knock public sentiment into a position from which a war can be maintained. Evidently they don’t think they’ll ever get majority support for this—they want something like 35-40 percent support, which in their book is “plenty.”

The onslaught has already begun on Fox News with both the FOX & Friends and Hannity & Colmes shows devoting extensive segments to discussions on attacking Iran.

The former show featured arch Neocon, Weekly Standard Editor and PNAC Chairman Bill Kristol who gave not one but two reasons for bombing Iran. Kristol stated that the US will have to take action either to eliminate the Iranian nuclear program or in order to quell alleged support of Iraqi insurgents by Iranian forces.

“We may have to do more to stop Iran, at least with respect to Iraq, leave aside the nuclear program.” Kristol stated.

He neglected to mention the fact that Iranian support of Iraqi insurgents has not been verified by any intelligence and has been flatly refuted by the Iranian government. In addition it is so called “Al Qaeda affiliated insurgent groups” that the U.S. government is openly funding and supporting in order to carry out bombings in Iran and destabilize Ahmadinejad’s power base.

The Iranian government is also diplomatically allied to the current Iraqi government, where as the Neocon White House has recently been implicated in the actual overthrow and replacement of the Iraqi administration.

Later the same evening Hannity and Colmes featured Michael Ledeen whom Hannity announced as one of his favourite authors, calling his newest book on how Iran needs to be attacked “terrific”.

Ledeen spouted that “It could be almost any day now where we have two terrible choices to make, do we accept the existence of a nuclear Iran, with all that implies or do we attack them militarily, which is also a terrible choice.”

Hannity then suggested that there is a modicum of gender inequality in Iran, as if that provides reasoning for attacking the country with military force, and stated that he “views them as the rise of Nazi-ism in our time”.

All indications are that an attack is imminent. The London Times reported on Sunday that the Pentagon had finalized plans for a 3 day blitz designed to annihilate 1,200 targets in Iran and destroy the country’s military capability. in addition President Bush has warned of the risk of a “nuclear holocaust” if the Iran is allowed to acquire nuclear capability, French President Nicolas Sarkozy has intimated that an attack is on the cards, The White House has declared the Iranian army a terrorist group, and the U.S. has stationed three aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf.
