IRAN: the Squall and US/NATO's Bloodlust Without Borders
30 Sep 2006
The US war machine is moving another 12.000 troops to the south of Afghanistan, smack on the border of Iran. NATO is freeing up US forces for the war against Iran which has a warp speed torpedo - the Squall - as a bad surprise in store. But, the USS Eisenhower leaves next Tuesday with a war fleet, so maybe we'll see the 'Hormuz one-way Streets'?

by Henk Ruyssenaars - Foreign correspondent

FPF-Europe - Sept. 30th - 2006 - Preparing the illegal war against Iran at meetings in Brussels last year and two weeks ago, in Portoroz in Slovenia and at NATO headquarters in Brussels, yesterday it was confirmed: before the end of this year the US trained and dominated NATO forces should become 'openly involved' in the US occupation and wars against the local resistance in Afghanistan. No more so called and fake 'reconstruction': the US/NATO mask is off. NATO troops are taking over the further fight against the resistance in Afghanistan too, furthering US economical goals. And making every 'Western' looking foreigner a target for the resistance fighters.

The falsely named "International Security Assistance Force" (ISAF) - the occupation and war forces deployed in Afghanistan - should according to US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and likewise infamous NATO 'secretary general' Dutchman Jaap de Hoop Scheffer* count around fifty-four-thousand (54.000) troops by the end of this year. It's not realistic, but they keep working at it behind the scenes of the 'war theaters'. Looking at the map shows the area, bordering Iran. - Url.:

The people of the 26 NATO countries are usually never informed nor asked concerning those matters, since human beings normally abhor illegal war and the again ongoing global bloodshed. Nor have people anywhere been consulted whether they want to foot the bill for all the US/NATO's war crimes. Which they of course do not want to do. That's why the gorish group advocating this war - and their criminal media megaphones - avoids to mention the fact that Iran is five times bigger than Iraq, and has an already occupation and atrocities resisting angry and mutilated population, which is much larger than the overwhelming resistance in Iraq.


Omitted by the war schemers is also the fact that Iran has a much better and bigger, well trained army, for which Iran - with a lot of oil billions at hand - all the time has bought the latest and most modern weapons. Most from US's 'arch enemy' Russia, but also US weapon systems from the 'open market' - to be used in defense against any invaders. They also bought, tested last April and now can use the Squalls, a super fast torpedo making some kind of warp speed under water, and which can carry a nuclear warhead: historically altering sea warfare, but only for the worse. - Test:


''The USS Eisenhower to deploy to Mideast'' - wrote the 'Daily Press' in the US.* After many years in the mothballs even this written off old sea horse was drafted again into the war, and is scheduled to sail next Tuesday with a whole aircraft carrier battle group from Norfolk. It's the same stupid and inhuman Rumsfeld script again, as with the disaster in Iraq etc. ''The aircraft carrier Eisenhower, fresh from refueling and overhaul at Northrop Grumman Newport News, sails Tuesday from Norfolk to relieve the USS Enterprise in the Middle East. - [Concerning 'Mideast' and 'relieve' you can think what ever you feel like - HR]

Commanded by Rear Adm. Allen G. Myers, the 'Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group' also includes the guided-missile cruiser USS Anzio, guided-missile destroyer USS Ramage, guided-missile destroyer USS Mason and the fast-attack submarine USS Newport News. All have their home port in Norfolk. There are about 6,500 sailors in the group. The USS Eisenhower went into 'Northrop Grumman Newport News' in May 2001 for almost four years. It has since completed training exercises in anticipation of this deployment.*


Most people involved in the US/Israeli war machine have not been informed about what awaits them, and their war fleet. And that includes all the thousands of (more or less brainwashed) people aboard the aircraft carriers, and the crews of all nuclear submarines. Because Iran can use super torpedoes like the Squall, which they - like France and China - bought from Russia. And which, according to weapons and naval warfare specialists, this far only spell total disaster for the war fleet of the US and the 'Coalition of the Killing'. Not to talk about the other missiles available. Have they all forgotten what happened in the Malvinas, when the British fleet was trying to fight the Falklands war?

The fact that the US Navy - with, by the way, disastrous results - have secretly been training their noisy nuclear subs with the so called 'neutral' Swedish diesel/electric submarine 'Gotland' - out of San Diego naval base - won't help. The Swedish submarine 'Gotland' was contracted for two years by the US Navy because it is of the same 'machine noise make' as the three Iranian Kilo-SS submarines bought earlier from Russia, and which can be - compared to the nuclear US subs - rather silent.


Concerning the super torpedo Squall, and it's warp speed, 'Jane's Defense Weekly' wrote: no submarine or other ship is a match yet. Maybe that's exactly what they want? What the warmongers have planned to sacrifice? Or again orchestrate themselves? Another scare like the US home-made 'Pearl Harbor' - the 'false flag' 9/11 massacre - to trigger yet another bloody war for the 'Project for a New American Century'? They didn't care about the 3000 killed in the WTC drama: why would they care about 5000 aboard a US aircraft carrier? The USS Eisenhower is an old ship, isn't she? The blood- and profit lust of this group, steering the US/Israeli war machine, seems to be without borders or any kind of human decency: ''The goal justifies the means'' - as Machiavelli and Washington's 'crazies' malignant mentor Strauss said.

In any case, also the US Marine Corps seems to be preparing for more wars, scraping the bottom of the barrel and announcing the use of 'Individual Ready Reserve' (IRR) troops. Three years of combat in Iraq, and five in Afghanistan also has caught up with the Marines. To start with - and 'officially' - they are calling up 2,500 IRR troops of the about 58,000 IRR troops which can be 'used'. Whether they want to kill and get DU poisoned, or not. They're also trying to get retired IRR and marines to re-enlist, but the false 'patriotism' has dwindled. People don't want to die for a lie, it seems. To solve the Pentagon's and war machine's problem, military draft of all people between 18 and 43 years of age has been planned in the US. Because the war group's Mammon-Moloch has to be fed with human beings in their psychopathic quest for the impossible hegemony of an 'empire'.

According to today's The Independent: The deployment will mean that 14,000 of Nato's 32,000 International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) troops under British command would be provided by the US, its biggest contingent under foreign control since the Second World War. The US troop transfer had been expected later in the year, but officials said the fierce nature of the fighting with the Taliban in the south made it necessary to pool British, Dutch and Canadian troops under Nato with separate US forces.* The phrase 'fierce fighting' in reality means the growing local and legal resistance.


The regrouping and further expanding of US/NATO troops on the borders of Iran is one more of many warning signs, 'Mene Tekels' on the wall for further US/Israeli acts of war aggression. None of the occupied countries has ever attacked the US which globally is waging a 'War OF Terror'. The growing resistance by the occupied people everywhere, like in Afghanistan and Iraq, as usual is blamed on 'the Taliban' - 'insurgents' or 'terrorists' - and falsely labeled 'terrorism'. But in the US's propaganda media it's never said that, apart from some military occupation bases and a small part of the capital Kabul, most of Afghanistan is in the hands of the war lords and the people which resist the US and it's foreign mercenaries in the 'Coalition of the Killing'. After five years and many tax $billions the country sides are deadly and 'Out of Bounds' everywhere - and a mortal danger for all illegal occupation forces.

Collaborating (tax paid) Dutch DU-dummies, armed and in uniform, were by the thousands flown into the south Afghanistan by plane, but are after a year still waiting for their 'bomb-proof' containers to live and sleep in. The armored containers can not be transported on the roads, because the convoys are attacked and bombed by the Afghani resistance before they have rolled many kilometers. So the belied Dutch dummies still sleep in tents, maybe finally understanding how hated they are, and why they are all the time attacked. But the 'managers' of Holland feed the easily controlled 16 million population day and night with propaganda via their government's and the other major disinformation sources they bought a long time ago - so many Dutch people don't know any better. Like all others they are expected to shut up and pay up.


In England Defence Secretary Des Browne confirmed that like the US: ''NATO had seriously underestimated the strength of the Taliban and the violent resistance faced by Western forces in Afghanistan. Since January, 140 foreign troops have been killed in fighting or accidents during operations.''* - And that's the official figure: so it must be worse. But what about the millions of us who died, or are 'enduring' this killing kind of 'freedom'?

The Independent: "The ministers yesterday also agreed to provide substantial amounts of military equipment for the Afghan army, which has already been fighting alongside Nato troops." This just means that the US/Israel war machine further empties NATO's many (tax paid) storages of weaponry and ammunition in all forms and sizes: the weapon factories of the multinationals are making $billions. In the eyes of human beings that is 'blood money' - but for the warmongers it's just profit. A million dead? They don't care a damn. A $million profit? Not bad! - they think.

And even knowing all this: that the 9/11 massacre was a US/Israeli inside job* - and thus NATO 'assistance' to the US absolutely illegal and unjust* - and also knowing the other lies, this disgusting creature Jaap de Hoop Scheffer keeps slavishly bootlicking. This US 'house slave' used the NATO meeting in Slovenia - together with Rumsfeld and other US henchmen - to heavily twist arms, bribe and bully other countries to send more troops to their death on the bloody and already 'lost' battlefields. Again forgetting that not even Alexander the Great could occupy and control the people in this area.

Like many people globally, Russian defense minister Sergei Ivanov is really fed up with the US warmongers further colonializing the Caucasus region with the CIA's covert actions: he threatened to send two divisions of Russian troops to the border with Georgia, which the US is trying to usurp and like the other colonies wants to enter their NATO war machine. To them it's a power game: we people don't count. In his undiplomatic anger Russian defense minister Ivanov called Georgia - like many US colonies, with a US/CIA commercial gang as 'government' - a 'bandit state'.

But in Washington and the Pentagon 'the crazies' call it part of the 'Project for a New American Century'.
