It has been put forth by many that Iran has been greatly strengthened due to the US wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and Israel's attacks on Hezbollah and Lebanon. Afghanistan and Iraq were full of Iran's enemies in power now removed by the US. Hezbollah was not destroyed by Israel but rather gained in relative popularity throughout the Middle East. Iran has supported Hezbollah, alleged by the US and Israel to be Iran's theological and ideological soul mate, so Iran has benefited there as well it is said.

Iran has a bull's eye on its forehead. It has been there ever since the Iranian Islamic Revolution re-nationalized Iranian oil.

Hezbollah has shown that Israel can be reached with rockets and that their armor is vulnerable to high-tech weapons from Russia. Many in Israel and the US will conclude that time is running out for them to preemptively strike Iran and Syria and Hezbollah and Hamas and North Korea at once or in rapid succession. Their aim is to destroy what they are calling Islamism or the Islamic revolution and other entities labeled as terrorist threats.

Is it morning, and is the sky red? What are the signs of the times? In world wars past, there were no hydrogen bombs.

The major military powers around the world all have mixed emotions. They are conflicted. However, the more belligerent Israel becomes, the more threatened those other powers will come to feel. It isn't lost on them that Israel already has nuclear armed submarines and is planning to buy more German submarines designed for sea launching Israeli nuclear missiles.

It is Israeli MAD approach. Israel is small geographically. It wouldn't take many Hiroshima sized bombs to end the Israeli state. Therefore, Israel has a deterrent in that it will launch a full retaliatory strike from sea on any nation that it determines attacks Israel with all-out weapons of mass destruction.

However, Israel is also more reckless than that. It will attack others conventionally while holding the nuclear threat over their heads. It has also deliberately shown the leaders of the opposition that it will attack civilians wholesale. In other words, all potential adversaries must factor into their thinking that Israel will level whole cities.

The Israeli government chosen by the majority of the Israeli people isn't interested in peace. They are interested in domination. This is why they haven't accepted the real Jesus Christ.

The US and Israel don't want peace with Iran

The true power in Iran rests with the Supreme Leader. The Supreme Leader is the Ayatollah Khamenei. He is supported by an organization called the Guardian Council. Then there's another group called the Expediency Council. These are the people that control the military, the police, the nuclear program, all the instruments of power. And not only has the Supreme Leader issued a fatwa that says that nuclear weapons are not compatible with Islamic law, with the Shia belief system that he is responsible, in 2003 he actually reached out to the Bush administration via the Swiss embassy and said, "Look, we would like to normalize relations with the United States. We'd like to initiate a process that leads to a peace treaty between Israel and Iran." Get this, Israel and Iran. He's not saying, "We want to wipe Israel off the face of the earth." He is saying, "We want peace with Israel." And they were willing to put their nuclear program on the table.[77]

Think about what Scott Ritter is reporting. It flies in the face of everything the mainstream media are reporting in the US and Israel. Iran doesn't want to wipe Israel off the map militarily. They want the powers that be who created Israel to reverse that decision if Israel won't allow the Palestinians to be treated as human beings and won't return land grabbed through war starting with the 1967 War.

Iran offered the US State Department, under Colin Powell, and through the Swiss, to support stabilizing Iraq, giving full transparency on nuclear energy developments in Iran, and cutting off military support to Hezbollah and aid to Hamas. They wanted the US to stop acting with hostility toward Iran, to end all sanctions, and to go after the People's Mujahideen Organization of Iran (PMOI) (also spelled Mujahedin) and the MEK (Mujahedin-e Khalq) that had fought against the Islamic regime in Iran on the side of the Iraqis. The MEK has been labeled a terrorist organization. They are zealous.

Cheney flatly rejected negotiations with Iran, embarrassing Powell and criticizing the Swiss.[78]

The Bush White House has threatened a former CIA Iran specialist with criminal prosecution for releasing classified information if he publishes an op-ed piece in The New York Times. The only thing is that the piece contains no classified information. It contains only information that the Bush administration itself has already publicly released. Also, the piece was cleared by the CIA for release. What the Bush administration is doing is using intimidation to suppress political discussion in the country over the Bush plan to attack Iran under false pretenses, just as it did in Iraq. It's high treason in the mundane sense all over again.[79]

How hypocritical is it that George W. Bush signs nuclear deals with both India and China while it rants and raves about Iran? India never joined the nuclear nonproliferation treaty. That seems not to matter to Bush and his followers. Making money is more important. China developed its nuclear weapons under the totalitarian Communist Party. That Communist Party still has a clamp on the people. That doesn't matter, so long as there is money to be made. Bush also sold fighters to Pakistan, even though the dictatorship of Pakistan cheated its way into having nuclear weapons.

It is also noteworthy that Bush is still using signing statements to thwart the Congress. The Congress sent a bill to Bush which he did not veto that requires him to report Indian-Iranian nuclear cooperation. Brian Knowlton reported the following about Bush's signing statement:

...he [Bush] would view as only "advisory" a congressional directive barring any nuclear sales to India that conflict with the guidelines of the Nuclear Suppliers Group, which was created, after India first tested a nuclear bomb in 1974, to restrain countries from using civilian nuclear equipment to build weapons.[80]

The hypocrisy in the UN led by the US and Israel concerning Iran is momentous. Placing sanctions on Iran is just an excuse by the neocons to ramp up tensions leading to attacking Iran.

Sanctions against Iran are designed to begin the same process the sanctions against Iraq once produced, which was many hundreds of thousands of innocent children starved to death by the sick, pirate, gangster, monsters running the US and Israel and the rest of this satanic world.

They're just a bunch of liars. They're hard-drug smugglers and black market arms dealers and worse. They're mass murders. They've sent covert murders into thousand of operations resulting in millions of murder victims around the world for the sake of the greed of the dictators of the US who suppress all the news and who cover up and pardon each others sins and who have totally subverted real democracy.

They are the traitors to the people. They are a bunch of plutocrats and oligarchs. They are not democrats or even republicans.

National security is a racket to protect criminals who murder humanity and the planet.

They're all headed straight for hell if they don't repent and atone with everything they have.

They train and run assassins and death squads around the world and then have the gall to point the finger at those it raised up if any dare to try to turn to do something right for the people.

God sees what you're all doing. So does Satan. You are all making a huge mistake. Your souls are on the line. They belong to Satan unless you repent with everything you have, every ounce of your being.

Why is anyone in the world still following the lead of George W. Bush's group after what they have done? The only reason is sheer evil.

Israel has nuclear weapons. India and Pakistan acquired nuclear weapons. They did this despite the fact that such weapons are evil. Yet, the US gives Pakistan fighter jets galore and signs nuclear deals with India and encourages Israel's murderous regime while it brow beats the Persians who are members of the nonproliferation treaty and have every mundanely legal right under the international law to develop peaceful nuclear energy. They are under absolutely no obligation under international law to prove they aren't planning to acquire nuclear weapons. No developed nation can prove such a thing.

The onus is on the US and Israel to prove Iran is building nuclear weapons, not the other way around.

Real Christians don't like Iran's religion. We don't like Israeli's either. We don't like Britain's atheism either. None of that gives us the right to disintegrate them. We can only tell them the truth that their violence is sick and they need healing.

The Bush-43 administration has made a complete mockery out of law. Shame on the people who voted for these people.

There isn't one leader to look up to, not one. We hate what they're doing. They're ruining the planet, just ruining it.

Now that the UN Security Council voted for sanctions against Iran, people are wondering why Russia And China agreed?

Well, they haven't forgotten Iraq. If they had voted against sanctions, that would simply have hastened the day when the US would attack Iran.

Now we see the outcome of the push by the US neocons. Iran is stating openly that if they are threatened, they may reconsider obtaining nuclear weapons.

This of course hides the fact that Iran has openly stated that it is un-Islamic to possess nuclear weapons. We see the hypocrisy.

Naturally, the neocons insist that the Iranians have been planning to obtain nuclear weapons all along. Well, their insistence is becoming their self-fulfilling prophecy, their worst nightmare. They should never have imagined the nuclear weapon in their selfish hearts. Then they wouldn't be facing their manifest nightmare.

People shouldn't interpret their dreams of weapons as a sign from God that they should possess them.

Energy Wars

This is what is going on. It isn't about spreading democracy but rather grabbing markets and resources and exploiting cheap labor under repressive regimes with little to no worker rights or safety and little to no environmental protections. It keeps the overhead low while the people in America borrow to even afford the hugely marked up discount store prices. What a racket it all is.

Right now, the US is gunning in a number of places. Those who watched early knew what was going to happen in Somalia. We know what's planned for Sudan and Nigeria and Venezuela and all the other places with so-called fossil fuels and other resources. (Russian scientists have long thought that oil is not from dead plants and animals, etc.—too much oil for that.)

Right now, the US is really zeroing in on Iran. The aerial assaults will be particularly devastating—much worse than against Iraq in the Shock and Awe bombardment. All movements by Iran will be countered from the sky and space and from the Navy, which includes a huge air contingent in its own right. In fact, the Navy is going to run this war under admiral William Fallon. The Army and Marines have had Iraq for years now. Now it's the Navy's turn. The Air Force will get its turn too.

All the branches have special forces all over the globe operating out of some one hundred thirty bases in just some one hundred ninety countries. No other nation or group of nation has anything even remotely similar set up.

What the US is losing or dropping in economic relativity, it is planning on regaining and more by taking over and controlling the energy of the planet.

Iran is going to be punished for ousting the Shah, seizing the US embassy, and taking back its own oil, just as Somalia is being punished for bringing down two Black Hawks and killing eighteen American military personnel and for having oil that the US covets.

Venezuela will be punished for telling the president to go to hell and for making him the laughing stock in the UN General Assembly and for having oil that the US covets.

The blacks in Nigeria will be punished for being "uppity n gg rs" and for having oil that the US covets.

The poor Nigerians must put up with European and US oil companies paying the government of Nigeria that doesn't turn around to help the people but pockets the money. The Nigerians, nevertheless, are forced to put up with Shell Oil's gas flaring in the Niger Delta, which is the single largest source of carbon emissions on the planet.[81] The pollution is devastating for the people's farming and fishing. It's the Whites raping the planet in the Blacks' country.

Sudan will be punished for having housed Osama bin Laden and for having oil that the US covets.

Don't kid yourself. Racism is still very much in control in the US. The anti-hate speech stuff is just for public consumption. Behind the scenes, as the young, Kanye West, said, "George Bush doesn't care about Black people."

I hate the way they portray us in the media. You see a black family, it says, "They're looting." You see a white family, it says, "They're looking for food." And, you know, it's been five days [waiting for federal help] because most of the people are black. And even for me to complain about it, I would be a hypocrite because I've tried to turn away from the TV because it's too hard to watch. I've even been shopping before even giving a donation, so now I'm calling my business manager right now to see what is the biggest amount I can give, and just to imagine if I was down there, and those are my people down there. So anybody out there that wants to do anything that we can help — with the way America is set up to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off, as slow as possible. I mean, the Red Cross is doing everything they can. We already realize a lot of people that could help are at war right now, fighting another way — and they've given them permission to go down and shoot us![82]

Saudi dictators helping the Bushes and themselves

The energy war is being waged by the volume of output by the Saudis (royal family, so-called). They have increased their output to weaken Iran and Venezuela and others who are sympathetic to anti-American capitalist hegemony. The Saudis hate the Shiites. Iran is Shiite. The Saudis hate the theocrats, such as Zawahiri the Qutbist. The Saudis are hugely invested in the US and get equally large kickbacks from the corrupt capitalists on all manner of technologies, especially weapons.

How will Venezuela counter this? Venezuela's profit margin becomes very tight long before the Saudis start to feel the squeeze. Besides, it's the Saudis who are making up in volume what they are losing in mark-up.

It is a multi-edge sword, however, because the oil producers who were already diversifying their investments out of petrodollars have less to invest all the way around including in petrodollars, which most don't plan to give up entirely for diversity sake. They just want to spread the risk more, hedging against a further fall in the US economy relative to the rest of the world.

It's a self-fulfilling prophecy.

The following should appear at the end of every post:

According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":

Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.

Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.

Political Campaign Intervention

Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.

Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.

Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:

  • Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
  • Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
  • Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
  • Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
  • Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office

Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:

  • The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
  • Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
  • We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
  • When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
  • It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
  • We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
  • We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
  • When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
  • We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
  • It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.

And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
