Iran, Israel, China and World War III

The latest news from former CIA Agent Robert Baer, reported by Al Jazeera, states that Israel may very well be planning to attack Iran this coming fall. To many people who remember the Arab-Israeli wars of 1967 and 1973, this seems a one sided battle in which Israel once again roundly thumps it’s rather bellicose neighbors and wins for herself yet another glorious victory. However, the reality of such a conflict could be far different.

Iran possesses an Armed Forces of roughly four million. This includes Active, Reserve and Paramilitary components. The Iranian also possesses an unknown number of Basij Militia members. In 1985 the number of the Basij Militia stood at three million strong. This brings Iran’s total military capabilities up to almost seven million. By comparison, the entire US Armed Forces stands at a little over two and a half million Active, Guard and Reserve forces, keeping in mind the fact that much of this force is currently deployed overseas.

Additionally, Iran’s armed forces are strengthened by the presence of at least 29 Russian Air Defense Systems and possibly a contingent of Russian troops. The presence of Russian troops in Iran would be likely since Russia has held joint military exercises with Iran and signed a mutual defense agreement with the Persian country. Coincidentally, this is eerily similar to the defense treaty signed between Russia and China.

Iran is no country to be underestimated. Iran has developed weapons, in conjunction with the Chinese Aeronautics Industry, capable of attacking and destroying the US fleet in the Persian Gulf – namely, the Kowsar Missile which is capable of being launched undetected from land or sea and striking US ships anywhere in the Persian Gulf. Weapons such as these could not only do significant damage to the US fleet but could completely negate US naval power in the region.

Thus, a potential Israeli attack on Iran worries many within Israel’s intelligence service, as well as, those in the US Department of Defense. A war between Israel and Iran would, not only, drag an unwilling and unprepared United States into the conflict but it, also, has the potential to draw in China, Russia and, of course, Iran’s long time allies Syria and Lebanon – sparking World War III.

The administration seems embarrassingly unprepared for such a conflict. With defense budget cut backs and troop draw downs, the United States is in no position for a conflict with Iran and her allies. Why then would Israel press for a war with Iran?

The answer is rather simple. Israel feels choked and threatened by the increasing power of her rather hostile neighbors, particularly in light of what has become known as the Arab Spring, the name for the revolutions sweeping the Arab world. Hezbollah, a long time enemy of Israel, now controls Lebanon and has become much better armed, trained and equipped thanks to the arrival of Iranian warships traveling through the Suez Canal.

Syria has become emboldened because of its success in suppressing its own revolution and the lack of US intervention. Furthermore, the Syrian leadership has inherent ties to Iran, President Bashar Al-Assad and his family are Alawite, a sect of the Shia and of course Iran is predominately Shia. It is widely believed that Iran has been supplying Syria with arms, as well as, Lebanon.

Additionally, Iraq’s leadership is predominately Shia and therefore, predisposed to support Iranian political aims. This is largely due to the fact that the Iranian religious leadership is the theological head of the Shia sect of Islam.

These fears have put Israel on what Sun Tzu aptly referred to as “Death Ground” – A place from which there is no retreat. Israel feels hemmed in and suffocated. As a result, the Israeli leadership, namely President Netanyahu, reportedly feel they have little recourse than to launch a preemptive strike.

A decision to attack Iran would benefit neither Israel nor the US. On the other hand, it would benefit Iran and Russia. Persia once controlled the entire Middle East. Removing the US and her ally Israel would ensure Iran’s dominance in the region once again.

Meanwhile, Russia is eyeing the great oil resources of the Middle East. In her mind, removing the US and Israel and placing her vassal, Iran, in control of the region would by extension would give Russia much greater influence in that part of the world.

What does China have to gain? China feels it benefits from anything that politically and militarily weakens the US and her allies. A disastrous war in which the US and Israel were defeated would, also, force the US to begin to concede control of Africa and Asia to China and her economic interests.

The potential for a war seems great and the prospects for an American victory seem far from great. We as Americans and citizens of the Republic must consider whether we are ready to commit our children, our lives and our property in yet another war in the Middle East.

In my next article, I will describe in detail how the war might unfold.

    A Window into World War III

    From the ghosts of Tom Clancey’s 2001 release of Ghost Recon, with its single player campaign plot involving the exact, prophetic, Georgian invasion of South Ossetia with Nato backing that later occured in 2008, comes the latest, greatest, First Person Shooter Video Game from EA: Battlefield 3. Battlefield 3 features the latest gaming engine, Frostbite 2. It looks real. but what is so interesting to me about this game is that not one reviewer chose to comment on the plot of the Single Player Campaign, with most of them preferring instead to devote the majority of the substance of their reviews to praising how wonderfull it is to blow each other up in such great detail in multiplayer and co-op mode. Not even the prestigious site Gamespot.com’s Video Review host Chris Watters could be bothered to tell you what armies you are representing in multiplayer or co-op mode during his 5 minute commentary.

    The multiplayer mode storyline has the Pacific Asian Coalition led by Russia invading Europe in France and battling NATO with American troops on the ground in France. In other words WW III. This article will focus on the storyline of the Single Player Campaign.

    The Single Player Campaign story is told in a disconnected, non-intuitive way, revolving around the protagonist’s flashbacks that he recounts as he is interrogated by Homeland Security. In fact the two DHS interrogator characters actively and forcefully push the protagonist and in so doing you the player to constantly reinforce your casual dismissal of the plot.

    The story features US Marine Sgt Blackburn, the protagonist, and has you the player live through his quest to capture an Iranian PLR agent named Solomon who has 2 Russian suitcase nukes that he plans to detonate in Paris and New York City. As the story unfolds, US Marines conduct small scale black ops incursions into Iranian cities in order to secure strategic intel objectives. One of these missions involves your in-game character and it consists of a force of 50,000 US Marines invading Tehran, Iran without provocation to look for suspected Russian double agent/terror mastermind Solomon. You get to be the navigator/gunner in an F-18 airstrike on Tehran’s main airport. This mission allows you to discover that Solomon acquired 3 suitcase nukes. One of them is still there, and you see maps for Paris and New York City. Next thing you know Paris gets nuked. Yes you read that correctly. The suitcase nuke goes off in Paris and kills 80,000.

    In response a full scale invasion of Iran is launched, and in the next mission you participate as a tank gunner in a full scale tank battalion assault into Iran as part of a multi-pronged air, land, and sea operation. Meanwhile Sgt Blackburn is desperately trying to catch up with PLR leader Solomon before he detonates the third suitcase nuke in New York City. The war escalates in Iran as US Marines engage Russian Paratroopers dropping out of Russian heavy troop transports all over Iran by the tens of thousands and backed by Russian Migs in the air and tanks on the ground in full scale war. In the end Sgt Blackburn stops New York City from getting nuked, but not before you the player are forced to shoot a fellow Marine dead or the proverbial “millions will die” scenario will happen and the door is left wide open for future Downloadable Content to weave more tales of world destruction behind a foreground of very realistic fire and brimstone.

    What adds to the eerieness factor in this campaign is the way they use their disconnected, flashback method of story telling blended with the establishment view that the Homeland Security characters promote from start to finish to totally marginalise, minimise and in fact dismiss the fact that the story line is about war with Russia in Iran with nukes going off all over the West.

    Below are links to the main game site and youtube clips of some of the scenes I described earlier.

    I strongly recommend that you look at each link, and while you watch those video clips, think about the fact that this blockbuster, number one game was released Oct 25, 2011, while Israel is openly green lighted to strike Iran, and we are massing troops in Kuwait after conquering Libya, and major figures in our government have said that we are preparing for a major military offensive in the near and middle east, to include Iran, Syria, and Pakistan in November.

    For those of you that don’t play PC or Gaming Console (XBox) games you probably don’t realise that movies are obsolete. In the same way that the internet made non-interactive TV obsolete, computer games have made non-interactive movies obsolete because in a computer game you don’t just watch, you are the protaganist in the movie. And many of todays games have plots that are determined by your actions withing the game. The point being that in the same way that movies promote mass mind control and show glimpses of the future, games accomplish the same but to exponential proportions. There are entire virtual worlds built to tell you what they are about to do, and you can go inside and actually be there. (See Fallout or Rage and especially Deus Ex, the original [Deus Ex is actually an anti Illuminati game showing the future with good intentions])

    The way that this game (Battlefield 3) generates cognitive dissonance by turning the plot line into a picasso to distract the player from the actual plot content, i.e. the invasion of Iran and nuking of Paris, not to mention the beginning of open hostilities with Russia, will produce millions of young males with an affinity for war whose memories will blend Iran with Iraq and therefore they will eventually come to believe we have always been at war with Iran, and they will think its fun. In fact if you play the game, or just watch the mission video clips, you will see how they casually present each new major invasion of Iran and escalation of the conflict, and they are major escalations, headed straight for total global war, as if it was just routine and had always been happening. The plot never addresses a beginning of hostilities. In fact it implies that we have been fighting on the ground in Iran since as far back as you can remember. But they use all the authority of the top game in its genre with the latest, cutting edge engine. backed by the military industrial complex, to bestow upon their version of history, present and future not only the appearance of legitimacy, but the a-moral high ground. lol

    So in short, if you want to know what the beginning of World War III will look like, those video links below are your oracle into the future. And the oracle of the military industrial complex produced video game has always been right so far. I had a foreboding feeling as I anticipated the release of this game, and when I saw the plot, I was not pleased. I can’t imagine how all the Iranians must feel about the West as they watch millions of us gleefully pretend to blow their ancient capital city to rubble in Frostbite 2 3D. Could you imagine a Chinese game where the goal is to conquer as much American territory as possible, and capture as many slaves as you can catch in the process? Think it won’t happen? lol Think again.

    I agree with your analysis about the potential for World War 3, But it’s not the greed of the Russians but the greed of Isreal & it’s crony USA and it’s subservient European countries.

    The dream of a New World Order by USA is likely be shattered if it invites it’s own destruction with a conflict with Russia & China by attacking Iran and Syria!

    This enterprise of the West will be it’s undoing! It appears, that Israel and the USA are unlikely to see sense and therefore, the World is the brink of a nuclear War 3.

    Unfortunately, the Arrogance of Israel and the USA is unlikely U-Turn & see sense. Therefore I lament that mankind is standing at unparalleled destruction to which the mankind has never faced before.

    I do not think that this destruction can now be avoided except that I pray that God Almighty save those innocent mankind that has nothing to do with the powerful shadow elite who are playing out the game with it’s “puppets”.

    However, God is the better planner and I am sure that God almighty will save the vast majority of the innocent mankind who have no control over the present crisis. However, God almighty did not create mankind to be destroyed by the few evil mischief makers! On the contrary, in my opinion it will destroy the instigators because their acts are contrary the purpose for creation of mankind by God!

    Therefore, after the destruction, a New World Order will prevail! Because even from the words of the Bible, “The Meek shall inherit the Earth!” certainly God will be a helper for the meek & not the mischief maker!
