Can America invade Iran? Yes. Should they? NO! Why bother in the first place? Because the Jews want them to do it. Could the Americans win? Not a chance, apart from extensive nuking. What would the results be? Appalling. Do the Jews know all of this? Of course. Are they fools, rogues or madmen? All three is my answer. Mr. Dyer explains. He is a Canadian naval man of long experience.

Is it a land full of crazies? Probably not.

Attacking Iran: US options
When Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the highest-ranking American officer, was asked recently on NBC’s Meet The Press show whether the United States has a military plan for an attack on Iran, he replied simply: “We do.”
General staffs are supposed to plan for even the most unlikely future contingencies. Right down to the 1930s, for example, the United States maintained and annually updated plans for the invasion of Canada — and the Canadian military made plans to pre-empt the invasion. But what the planning process will have revealed, in this case, is that there is no way for the United States to win a nonnuclear war with Iran.
The US could “win” by dropping hundreds of nuclear weapons on Iran’s military bases, nuclear facilities and industrial centers (i.e. cities) and killing five to 10 million people, but short of that, nothing works. On this we have the word of Richard Clarke, counterterrorism adviser in the White House under three administrations.
In the early 1990s, Clarke revealed in an interview with the New York Times four years ago, the Clinton administration had seriously considered a bombing campaign against Iran, but the military professionals told them not to do it.
“After a long debate, the highest levels of the military could not forecast a way in which things would end favorably for the United States,” he said. The Pentagon’s planners have war-gamed an attack on Iran several times in the past 15 years, and they just can’t make it come out as a US victory.
It’s not the fear of Iranian nuclear weapons that makes the US Joint Chiefs of Staff so reluctant to get involved in a war with Iran. Those weapons don’t exist, and the whole justification for the war would be to make sure that they never do.
The problem is that there’s nothing the US can do to Iran, short of nuking the place, that would really force Tehran to kneel and beg for mercy.
It can bomb Iran’s nuclear sites and military installations to its heart’s content, but everything it destroys can be rebuilt in a few years. And there is no way that the United States could actually invade Iran.
There are some 80 million people in Iran, and although many of them don’t like the present regime they are almost all fervent patriots who would resist a foreign invasion. Iran is a mountainous country, and very big: Four times the size of Iraq. The Iranian Army currently numbers about 450,000 men, slightly smaller than the US Army — but unlike the US Army, it does not have its troops scattered across literally dozens of countries.
If the White House were to propose anything larger than minor military incursions along Iran’s south coast, senior American generals would resign in protest. Without the option of a land war, the only lever the United States would have on Iranian policy is the threat of yet more bombs — but if they aren’t nuclear, then they aren’t very persuasive. Whereas Iran would have lots of options for bringing pressure on the United States.
Just stopping Iran’s own oil exports would drive the oil price sky-high in a tight market: Iran accounts for around seven percent of internationally traded oil. But it could also block another 40 percent of global oil exports just by sinking tankers coming from Iraq, and the Arab Gulf states with its lethal Noor anti-ship missiles.
The Noor anti-ship missile is a locally built version of the Chinese YJ-82. It has a 200-km. (140-mile) range, enough to cover all the major choke points in the Gulf. It flies at twice the speed of sound just meters above the sea’s surface, and it has a tiny radar profile. Its single-shot kill probability has been put as high as 98 percent.
Iran’s mountainous coastline extends along the whole northern side of the Gulf, and these missiles have easily concealed mobile launchers. They would sink tankers with ease, and in a few days insurance rates for tankers planning to enter the Gulf would become prohibitive, effectively shutting down the region’s oil exports completely.
Meanwhile Iran would start supplying modern surface-to-air missiles to the Taleban in Afghanistan, and that would soon shut down the US military effort there. (It was the arrival of US-supplied Stinger missiles in Afghanistan in the late 1980s that drove Russian helicopters from the sky and ultimately doomed the whole Soviet intervention there.)
Iranian ballistic missiles would strike US bases on the southern side of the Gulf, and Iran’s Hezbollah allies in Beirut would start dropping missiles on Israel. The United States would have no options for escalation other than the nuclear one, and pressure on it to stop the war would mount by the day as the world’s industries and transport ground to a halt.
The end would be an embarrassing retreat by the United States, and the definitive establishment of Iran as the dominant power of the Gulf region.
That was the outcome of every war-game the Pentagon played, and Mike Mullen knows it. So there is a plan for an attack on Iran, but he would probably rather resign than put it into action. It is all bluff. It always was.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran looks quite a decent sort of chap.
Israel Lobby Incitement Of War Against Iran
It all started when French President Nicholas Sarkozy was overheard telling Obama, “I cannot bear Netanyahu, he’s a liar.” At that point, in the ADL’s ideal world, Obama would have rushed to the defense of the Israeli leader, insisting on all the wonderful qualities that all Israelis are known to have–honesty, integrity, etc. Instead, Obama replied, “You’re sick of him, but I have to deal with him every day.”..........
The tension between Obama and Netanyahu is nothing new, coming to a peak in May when Obama talked about the 1967 borders and Netanyahu got his ~30 standing ovations in Congress. Since then, the consensus is that Netanyahu won and Obama lost: The construction of settlements continues unabated, Palestine is not in the UN (although it got into UNESCO with the help of France; the Palestinians have pledged not to apply for any more), and Israel and the Israel Lobby in the U.S. are gearing up to promote a war against Iran. There were murmurings that Jews would not contribute to Obama, but, unless this recent flap has legs, that doesn’t seem to be the case........
Jewish money is ultimately the reason why the Israel Lobby is invincible in America......... The Israel Lobby tends to get what it wants. And it very much wants a war with Iran.
This is bad news. The Jews have been pushing America to do their dirty work for ages now. They shut up when America was attacking Libya. Now they are back full force. Evil, thy name is Israel.
Jews Trying To Start World War III [ 6 December 2011 ]
The same Neocon hawks who lied us into Iraq are using the ultimate argument-stopper to push war with Iran
We’ve been through this before. As one of the most disastrous wars in our history is coming to an inglorious end, the same neoconservative hawks who dreamed it up are agitating for a new war that would make Iraq look like the invasion of Grenada — and using the ultimate trump card in American politics to silence debate over it.
When hawks begin beating the drums for war in the Middle East, Israel is usually a big reason why. That was true in the run-up to the war in Iraq, and it is doubly true with the current hysteria over Iran. Despite disingenuous claims to the contrary, the only reason the U.S. is even talking about war with Iran is Israel. As the invaluable M.J. Rosenberg, who knows the working of the Israel lobby as only a former card-carrying member can, notes, “It is impossible to find a single politician or journalist advocating war with Iran who is not a Neocon or an AIPAC cutout. (They’re often both.)”
Notice that the war mongers never served, never had the slightest intention of serving and want to use other nations' armies to do their evil for them.
Iran Threatens Oil Sanctions [ 29 December 2011 ]
Iran threatened on Tuesday to stop the flow of oil through the strait of Hormuz if foreign sanctions were imposed on its crude exports because of its [ alleged ] nuclear ambitions. Western tensions with Iran have increased since a report last month by the UN nuclear watchdog saying Tehran appeared to have been working on designing an atomic bomb and may still be pursuing research to that end. Iran strongly denies this and says it is developing nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.
Iran has defiantly expanded its nuclear activity despite four rounds of UN sanctions meted out since 2006 over its refusal to suspend sensitive uranium enrichment and open up to UN nuclear inspectors and investigators.
Many diplomats and analysts believe only sanctions targeting Iran's lifeblood oil sector may be painful enough to make it change course, but Russia and China – big trade partners of Tehran – have blocked such a move at the UN. Iran's warning came three weeks after EU foreign ministers decided to tighten sanctions over the UN report and laid out plans for a possible embargo of oil from the world's fifth biggest crude exporter.....
About a third of all sea-borne oil was shipped through the strait of Hormuz in 2009, and US warships patrol the area to ensure safe passage. [ To be fair, they can't - Editor ] Most of the crude exported from Saudi Arabia, Iran, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Iraq must slip through the strait, a four-mile wide shipping channel between Oman and Iran.
The Grauniad is in propaganda mode. The Jews have been marketing their lies about Iran wanting nukes while beefing up their own nuclear arsenal. The Germans are giving them another Dolphin-class submarine which carries the Popeye Turbo Cruise Missiles with a range of almost a thousand miles, enough to attack anywhere in Europe. Naturally they are nuclear. They can hit any capital in Europe or North America for that matter. The Jews have been telling the Americans to attack Iran, to put the frighteners on all Arabs. The Americans have not been stupid, not quite stupid enough to oblige. Petrol at $50 a gallon would annoy a LOT of voters.

Iran Announces More War Games as Oil Embargo Nears
Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, naval commander of the Revolutionary Guards Corps, said on Friday that Iran will conduct new military exercises in the Straight [ sic - try Strait ] of Hormuz......
Both the United States and the European Union are determined to stop Iranian oil shipments and shut down the country’s economy. The EU plans to unveil its effort at the end of the month. On New Year’s Eve, Obama signed the NDAA bill into law. The bill contains provisions imposing sanctions on foreign companies that do business with the Central Bank of Iran..........
“Let’s assume the European Union is stupid enough to go along with the US in imposing sanctions on Iran. That would only mean 250,000 barrels of heavy sour oil not coming into the EU,” Paul Stevens, economist and emeritus professor at Dundee University in Scotland, told CNBC....... China, the largest buyer of Iranian oil, has rejected the sanctions. “Sanctioning is not the correct approach to easing tensions,” said, Hong Lei, a ministry spokesman. “China opposes the placing of one’s domestic law above international law and imposing unilateral sanctions on other countries.”.......
“Alongside the US 5th Fleet in the Gulf, we have naval assets [ the Royal Navy ], we have mine counter-measures capability, we have a frigate present there, and we are an integrated part of the allied naval task force in the Gulf and one of the missions of that task force is to ensure that those shipping lanes remain open,” British Defense Secretary Philip Hammond [ another slimy politician who never served - Editor ] announced.
Britain’s Royal Navy participates in the Combined Maritime Forces, a US-led, Bahrain-based naval flotilla drawn from 25 nations.
The Jews have been inciting the Americans to invade Iran for years now, that is inciting a major war crime. They were supplying Iran with weapons before that. Jews will trade slaves, weapons, narcotics, pornography. Illegal commerce is more profitable. The fact that it might well start World War III does not seem to matter to Zionist crazies. Was Adolf wrong about them? The Americans are the comedians who brought us Viet Nam, Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan. They managed to win in Grenada though.

Americans Starving Iran Into Submission For Israel [ 12 January 2012 ]
TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan pledged on Thursday to take concrete action to cut Iranian oil imports in response to an appeal for support from visiting U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, as Washington steps up efforts to sanction Tehran over its disputed nuclear programme.
Geithner welcomed Tokyo's cooperation, an encouraging sign for U.S. foreign policy after China rebuffed U.S. sanctions aimed at starving Iran of the oil revenues that provide the country of 74 million people with a vital economic support. Iran faces the prospects of cutbacks in oil sales to China, Japan and India, its top three buyers who together take more than 40 percent of its crude exports. The European Union, a major buyer, has committed to banning imports of Iranian oil....
China gave no hint on Wednesday of giving ground to U.S. demands to curb Iran's oil revenues, rejecting Washington's sanctions on Tehran as overstepping. Iran is China's third-largest crude supplier.
America is run by terrorists in Tel Aviv. Congressmen, Senators, the White House are all heavily infiltrated by Zionist crazies who bribe, blackmail, spy, corrupt, you name it. Iran can shut the Straits of Hormuz cutting off 40% of the world's oil. The Pentagon claims that they can keep it open. The Pentagon brought us Viet Nam [ by fraud ], Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan. To be fair they did manage to win in Grenada. Do you want World War III brought to us by American fools or anyone else for that matter?
Israeli Armed Forces Chief Of Staff Affirms Israeli Responsibility For Iran Covert War, Assassinations [ 12 January 2012 ]
Fox News reports that IDF chief of staff Benny Gantz testified in closed session to the Israeli Knesset’s foreign affairs and defense committee that Israel was engaged in sabotaging Iran’s nuclear program through a series of “unnatural” acts:
“2012 is expected to be a critical year for Iran.” He cited “the confluence of efforts to advance the nuclear program, internal leadership changes, continued international pressure and things that happen to it unnaturally.”
Yisrael HaYom’s coverage further reinforces the notion that he was referring directly to the “mysterious explosions” that have rocked Iran of late. As the FoxNews article notes, it’s no accident that the hearing occurred less than 24 hours before the latest assassination.
Zionist crazies do these things, then you get to thinking that Adolf was on the right lines.
Former Mossad chief says Israeli attack on Iran must be stopped to avert catastrophe [ 28 January 2012 ]
Former Mossad chief Meir Dagan warned Thursday against an Israeli attack on Iran, saying such a move would likely lead to a regional war involving Hezbollah, Hamas, and Syria. "I'm concerned about possible mistakes and I prefer to speak out before there is a catastrophe," Dagan said in an interview on the Israeli television program “Uvda."
"I think that engaging, with open eyes, in a regional war is warranted only when we are under attack or when the sword is already cutting against our live flesh. It is not an alternative that should be chosen lightly."
The Mossad boss knows what the Jews have. He knows they can do far more damage to Iran than vice versa.

Obama Speaks Against Illegal War With Iran [ 8 March 2012 ]
At last a leader, Obama fingers ‘Israeli interest’ in war
President Obama's press conference yesterday was bravura. He firmly dismissed the talk of war and exposed Israel's push for war with the kind of comment the lobby hates:
This is not just an issue of Israeli interest; this is an issue of U.S. interests. It's also not just an issue of consequences for Israel if action is taken prematurely. There are consequences to the United States as well.
The lobby hates there being any public daylight between the United States and Israel. Obama was saying openly, there's daylight.
And more than that, he fingered Israel as the only country with an interest in war. The Israelis are surely enraged by this. The onus is on them..........
The question remains, Why did Obama do it? Why after all these years of caving to Netanyahu did Obama grow a spine?
Obama seemed angry to me. He couldn't wait for the Iran question at the press conference, and as he answered it, his face was taut and flushed with emotion. I sensed his rage at AIPAC and at the Republicans for playing political games, blustering. And as Sanam Anderlini and Kate Gould said at Occupy AIPAC on Saturday, we're talking about a possible

He came to Mossad with the Holocaust motto of “never again” on his mind. Soon
after, Iranian cargo planes started falling from the sky, nuclear labs were
catching fire, centrifuges were malfunctioning. And then, one by one, Iranian
nuclear scientists started disappearing and getting killed, blown up by shadowy
men on motorcycles. But no matter how hard we tried, whenever we asked about any
of this, he stonewalled.
