Biden White House in ‘Pre-Iran War’ Mode?

Will London and Wall Street, now in possession of three bloody American shirts, give the green light, including to their Israeli hand-grenade, to finally implement their decades-old plan to attack Iran? In the aftermath of the killing of three American troops in northeastern Jordan near the Syrian border, and after weeks of attacks and counter-attacks involving Israel, Great Britain, Yemen, Lebanon, Gaza, Syria, etc., and the United States, as with Sarajevo, it won’t take much for a match to start a fire—maybe even a thermonuclear one.

CNN reported that the deaths were caused by one-way attack drones. They hit a U.S. outpost named Tower 22, located in Jordan. Besides the deaths, over 30 other American military personnel were wounded. In a statement, President Biden blamed “radical Iran-backed militant groups operating in Syria and Iraq” and said “have no doubt—we will hold all those responsible to account at a time and in a manner of our choosing.”

The three servicemen are the first Americans killed in Southwest Asia in the aftermath of the Biden Administration’s committing the United States to what has amounted to full support for the Israeli actions, including opposing the decision of the International Court of Justice in favor of South Africa Jan. 26. But make no mistake: What is about to happen is unrelated to the up-front “Who shot J.R?” shadow-theater that clueless cave-dwellers are given as truth. The “kill Iran” plan was already operational by 2001, and subsequently described by retired Gen. Wesley Clark in a March 2, 2007 interview with “Democracy Now!”

Clark described his dialogue with an unidentified Pentagon source, with whom he had first visited “on or about” Sept. 20, 2001. “I said, ‘We’re going to war with Iraq? Why?’ He said, ‘I don’t know.’ … And he said, “I guess if the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem has to look like a nail.

“So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, ‘Are we still going to war with Iraq?’ And he said, ‘Oh, it’s worse than that.’ He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, ‘I just got this down from upstairs’—meaning the Secretary of Defense’s office—’today.’ And he said, ‘This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.’ I said, ‘Is it classified?’ He said, ‘Yes, sir.’ I said, ‘Well, don’t show it to me.’”

Iran’s impending demise is now made “past urgent” in order to prevent the BRICS-led “power shift” that Iran, Egypt, Ethiopia and (probably) Saudi Arabia, in collaboration with other nations, including Russia and China, wish to pursue out of colonialism and neo-imperialism. So, will we, Gulf of Tonkin-style, attack Iran “in self-defense”?
