Seymour Hersh, Scott Ritter and the 'Imminent' War on Iran

Andrew Winkler, The Rebel Media Group

October 25, 2007

For the past couple of years, the dissident media scene has been abuzz with warnings of an imminent USraeli attack on Iran. First, the reason given was the opening of the Tehran oil bourse, then Ahmadinejad's 'wipe Israel off the map' remark. When that was debunked as fabricated by MEMRI, Mossad's free translation service, we were told it's because of Ahmadinejad's persistent questioning of the Holocaust, and the unfounded hysteria about Iran's nuclear programme.

I must admit that at first I was sucked in like everybody else. We are all so convinced of the sheer evilness of the people in control of the governments in Washington and Tel Aviv, that we believe just about anything we read, as long as it confirms our prejudices.

We all wanted to believe the much publicised warnings written by the likes of Seymour Hersh and Scott Ritter, not withstanding their career background. Seymour Hersh works for the New Yorker, owned by probably the most predatory Jewish print media group in the U.S., Newhouse, who puts even fascist crypto-Jew Rupert Murdoch to shame. And Scott Ritters, a former U.S. Navy Intelligence officer and U.N. Weapons Inspector, his career smacks more of CIA than Satan of sulphur.

Fair enough, people can change, and we shouldn't refuse redemption for those once involved in supporting the government. But when those self-proclaimed converts tell us exactly the same stories as psychopaths such as Dick Cheney, Norman Podhoretz and Paul Wolfowitz, I'm more inclined to think that they haven't changed at all, but are part of a concerted psy-ops effort. The ruling elite knows all too well that America's corporate media have lost much of their credibility over recent years, especially abroad. That is why they are using the Internet to spread the word that the U.S. and Israel intend to attack Iran. A few 'leaks' here, a couple of 'reformed' experts there, throwing dirt at the government and re-packaging the same genocidal phantasies as criticism, and we suddenly believe their stories.

Israel and America's Jewish lobby have been pushing for war on Iran for as long as they have been pushing against Saddam Hussein. That was many years before Ahmadinejad started hitting back where it hurts most: Israel's right to exist, the U.S. Dollar monopoly in the international oil trade and the dogmatic belief in the Jewish Holocaust. If the Neocons had ever intended to start a war with Iran, they would have done so immediately after conquering Iraq. However they need Iran as much as they need Israel and Turkey to control the Middle-East, in fact they always intended to split up Iraq between those three countries. All they want is a more cooperative Iranian government, headed by a USraeli puppet like the former Shah. Bush's advisers know all too well that a war against Iran would make it impossible for that to happen. It would only increase anti-American and anti-Israeli sentiment in the country.

The only question is, what will happen if all that concerted bullying effort in mainstream and alternative media doesn't have the desired result of making the powerbrokers behind President Ahmadinejad install a more cooperative administration. Only time will tell. But one thing is for sure; America's ruling elite knows very well that a war against Iran would trigger an open revolt of the American people against its own government. It is far more likely that the next U.S. administration will make amends with the Tehran leaders and solve the problem that way.
