The Real Agenda
January 12, 2012
This is another Iraq in the making. Another false threat to take the United States and the rest of the world -international community- into another war that may be even more dangerous than the previous two in the middle east. This is the summary of what Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul is warning about in a new ad that reminds us about false information, the yellow cake kind of information that took the United States and its allies to invade Iraq in 2003.
The same argument is being used in 2012 to provoke another war; this time with Iran. The unfounded “take it to the bank” proposition made by Colin Powell a few years ago, is now circulated around the decaying main stream corrupt media, that once again wants to make people feel afraid about a nonexistent threat. The WMD hoax ran by the Bush administration and the corporate media after 9/11, that Saddam Hussein was involved in the terrorist attacks, and that he had pursued and successfully obtained nuclear material for a bomb took the United States and a handful of allies to invade Iraq and complete the killing of at least 1,000,000 Iraqis. Today both George W. Bush and Colin Powell say they regret having gone to war on the dubious information, but are quick to blame information the sources and not themselves.
Many years before the attacks on US soil and as a consequence the retaliation on Iraq came about, only Ron Paul used his limited time on the House floor to warn the public about unwarranted, illegal wars to come, which would be based on false information. This wars would, as he accurately pointed it out, help the consolidation of power over territories and resources in the middle east by the forces of the military industrial complex, otherwise known as the US military and the ‘international community’.

During a time when the war drums beat louder than ever, not even the usual suspects can hide the fact that an open war is being fought in the shadows against Iran and that it is Israel itself the one conducting most of it with the help of the United States intelligence agencies. As reported by Fox News, IDF chief of staff Benny Gantz testified secretly for Israel’s Knesset’s foreign affairs and defense committee, and revealed that Israel itself was engaging 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.”
Ron Paul continued to warn against unprovoked wars back in 2002 as he explained to an unsuspecting public and a gullible Congress, that waging war on countries that had not threatened or posed a real threat to the United States would increase the chances that more hatred and attacks abroad and at home occurred. “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,” reports RichardSilverstein.com
As Dr. Ron Paul has explained at length, Iran is completely right to show its preoccupation with the continuous aggression that comes from the United States and its partners in the region. Although the Department of Defense denies that the most recent movements and war games carried out along with Israel are a direct response to Iran’s preparations for what seems to be an imminent attack on its nuclear energy installations, three new warships have moved closer into the Strait of Hormuz in order to press Iran to abandon its current position in the region.
“Another carrier strike group, led by the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, concluded a port visit to Thailand on Tuesday and was now in the Indian Ocean. It is on track to join the Vinson in the Central Command area of operations, which begins in the neighboring Arabian Sea,” reports Reuters.
But Iran’s response to US aggression has been exactly to not back off from its position. From all the countries threatened by the US, Israel, Britain and France in the last few months, Iran is the only one that has held strong. Its military is ready to conduct another significant naval drill over the next couple of weeks in preparation for a major US/Israeli military exercise. This scenario raises the chances that both Iran and the US may use the opportunity to cook up a false flag event. The message from Iran has been clear so far: “stay out of the Persian Gulf”.
With many of his warnings becoming true after 30 years of being straightforward with the public, Ron Paul is riding a wave of popularity that does not seem to end. In the latest national poll, the Congressman from Texas is second among independents and Republicans when these two groups are added together. In the last poll, he was only 1 percent behind Obama, a number well within the margin of error. These numbers greatly increase his chances of heading into the next few primaries in a head to head fight against current front runner Mitt Romney, who is still expected to hit a plateau and sink, just like all other contenders did. Ron Paul on the other hand has risen steadily passing everyone but the former Massachusetts governor.
Even Fox News’ Neil Cavuto has come out to warn that Mr. Paul may not only be a force during the current Republican primaries, but also a strong candidate for a run as an independent. Cavuto explains that as things are right now, Paul has the potential to steal important amounts of votes from both the Republican front-runner, as well as the incumbent president. See the video below:
As things are right now, it seems that Ron Paul still has a lot of room to grow as his message continues to resonate with more and more Americans of all ages, especially young adults and military servicemen and women. He continues to climb on the polls in the state of South Carolina positioning himself among the top three contenders, leaving behind people like Rick Perry, John Huntsman and Rick Santorum who just a few weeks ago were above Paul. Is it his consistent message what has earned Paul his meteoric rise? Probably. Will this rise in the polls and continuous appearances in second and third places guarantee Mr. Paul a strong showing on future primaries? It seems it will. Will his rise be strong enough to beat up the establishment candidates? We will see.
