Exposing Falsehoods and Revealing Truths

"US-Israeli Missile Defense War Game Signals Israeli Attack on Iran" by Paul Craig Roberts

NOTE: If Israel attacks Iran's nuclear facilities, an estimated 1,000,000 Iranians will be killed outright. The nuclear fallout will spread to Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan and bring about another 35,000,000 slower deaths due to cancers of various kinds. If this happens, it will be one of the greatest atrocities in human history, dwarfing deaths from US attacks on Hiroshima (140,000) and Nagasaki (80,000) many times over. It makes me sick to have to think about it. If this happens, I predict it will mark the end of Israel. Memories are long in the Middle East and, while revenge may take decades, it will happen. I believe Israel, alas, will be hit with one or more nuclear weapons across time.

US-Israeli Missile Defense War Game Signals Israeli Attack on Iran

By Paul Craig Roberts

October 28, 2009 "Information Clearing House" -- -There’s no word in the Western press, but Al Jazeera reports that the US and Israel are conducting tests of the high altitude missile defense system that the US has provided to Israel.

The anti-missile system is useless against the short range rockets of Hamas and Hezbollah. Its purpose is to protect Israel from longer range Iranian missiles.
US-Israeli Missile Defense War Game Signals Israeli Attack on Iran

Everyone understands that Iran would not attack Israel except in retaliation. It is logical to conclude that the missile defense system signals an upcoming Israeli attack on Iran.

If the US were opposed to an Israeli attack on Iran, the US would not provide Israel with protection against retaliation and would not engage in war games with Israel to test the system. The best way to prevent an Israeli attack on Iran is to leave Israel open to retaliation.

This decision by the United States government is irresponsible in the extreme. It enables Israel to spread aggression in the Middle East. By signaling an attack, it would encourage a less cautious country than Iran to strike first before the Israeli missile defense system is operative.

The joint US-Israeli war games involving 2000 troops from the US European Command, the Israeli Army, and 17 US Navy ships is further indication to the world that no matter what crimes the Israelis commit, the US will protect Israel from being held accountable.

In the world today, the US and Israel are the two threats to peace.
