Iraq-Iran; Latest Revelation: We Smell A Rat, and Something Distinctly Fishy



But probably not.

Something certainly smells fishy to us.

Not to mention an overwhelming whiff of a fowl (but familiar), aroma -- of rat.

As always though, time alone will tell.

Someone sent us a (seemingly, super-sinister) story yesterday - very recently run by Al-Jazeera English.

See for yourself what it says.

Then see what you think.

Here's a small snippet of said story:

Al-Qaeda threatens war against Iran

US forces had claimed to have killed al-Juburi,
also known as Abu Omar al-Baghdadi [AFP]

The leader of an al-Qaeda umbrella group in Iraq, who was thought to have been killed by US forces, has threatened to wage war against Iran unless it stops supporting Shias in Iraq within two months.

Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, head of the Islamic State in Iraq, said his Sunni fighters have been preparing to wage a battle against Shia-dominated Iran.

Al-Baghdadi made the announcement in an audiotape that was posted on a web site commonly used by armed groups.

Read the rest of this really alarming report right here.

Remember an old adage about there being 'more than one way of skinning a rabbit'?

Remember the infamous Iran Contra Affair?

Remember the odious, obnoxious Colonel Oliver North?

Deja vous, anyone?

Same old, same old, anyone?

Black (helicopter) ops, anyone?

On second thoughts, no, don't tell me, even if you know. I couldn't stand hearing.

Here's something you will enjoy looking at; it's called 'The first day of the trial':

Suggest you go to 'A war against America' comments for the lineup.

That's perfectly logical for me. Al-Qaida is a shadowy organisation serving the interests of the US. This announcement may be a prerun to some attacks performed by the CIA inside Iran...

No responsible newspaper would publish that story without getting independent verification of a few key facts. The fact that Al Jazeera actually DID run it tells me that some "investor" has stripped the previous excellent editorial staff of its independence. It is a sad thing.

I do not believe ANYONE living in the Middle East would believe that story for a minute. It looks like the plot of a comic book designed for the American consumer adolescent mentality.

Probably a test run to see if the idea has any traction ....

This kind of thing worked well when the subject was in and around Nicaragua 25+ years ago and the subject was concealing the movement of drugs and weapons and massive amounts of drug money, but then the whole world was not watching like it is watching the Middle East now.
