Dutch withdraw spy from Iran because of 'impending US attack'

I have been discussing issues related to IRAN for quite some time now - and this Blog has even been shut down (for unknown reasons, by unknown entities) in very short order after previous Iran posts... Let's hope this one is doesn't cause a shutdown.

Anyway, many are predicting Iran will be attacked soon. Even John Bolton, the former American ambassador to the United Nations, has stated Israel may attack Iran after the November presidential election but before George W Bush's successor is sworn in - that way, whoever gets elected is stuck dealing with the situation.

Here are a few of my archived articles - discussing reasons why Iran may be attacked:

Reason For Today's Post (hat tip Justin)

Telegraph.co.uk: The Dutch intelligence service has pulled an agent out of an "ultra-secret operation" spying on Iran's military industry because spymasters in Netherlands believe a United States air attack was imminent.

According to reports in the newspaper De Telegraaf, the country's intelligence service, the AIVD, has stopped an espionage operation aimed at infiltration and sabotage of the weapons industry in Iran.

"The operation, described as extremely successful, was halted recently in connection with plans for an impending US air attack on Iran," said the report.

"Targets would also be bombed which were connected with the Dutch espionage action."

"Well placed" sources told the paper that a top agent had been recalled recently "because the US was thought to be making a decision within weeks to attack Iran with unmanned aircraft".

"Information from the AIVD operation has in recent years been shared with the American CIA secret service."

Brig Gen Seyyed Massoud Jazayeri, deputy chief of the Iranian armed forces, warned at the weekend that military attacks against Iran would trigger a Third World War.

"The exorbitant demands of the US leaders and the global Zionism which have created the current situation in Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan and Caucasus are gradually directing the world to the edge of the cliff," he said.

The US has refused to rule out a military attack against Iran if its government continues to enrich uranium as part of its civilian nuclear programme, which the West suspects has the clandestine objective of developing atomic weapons.

Iran has warned it would close the strategic Strait of Hormuz, the entrance to the Gulf and a major oil shipping route, if it is attacked.

On Friday, the Israel newspaper Ma'ariv reported that Israel has stepped up preparations for a contingency plan to attack Iran, should diplomatic efforts, via the United Nations, fail to derail Tehran's suspected nuclear weapons programme.

Closing Thoughts:

Has anyone else thought it possible that recent strength in the dollar coupled with a massive commodities smackdown (including oil) was an orchestrated play to get inflation/oil under control - allowing an attack to take place. I feel TPTB know prices will soar if/when a new middle east campaign is initiated and it couldn't be done with (previous) out of control prices... Certainly makes sense to me...

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney has pledged U.S. support for Ukraine following last month's war between neighboring Russia and Georgia.

Cheney says in remarks Friday that Ukrainians should be able to live "without the threat of tyranny, economic blackmail and military invasion or intimidation." He says the United States has a "deep and abiding interest" in Ukraine's security.Cheney's visit came during a political crisis pitting Yushchenko and Tymoshenko, coalition partners, against one another, setting Ukraine's government teetering on the verge of collapse. The two are bitter rivals before Ukraine's 2010 presidential election...Konstantin Kosachyov, head of the foreign affairs committee in Russia's lower house of parliament, accused Cheney of trying to forge an "anti-Russian axis."

"It's Cheney who was behind all recent events on the former Soviet turf," Kosachyov said Thursday.

I was born in the Ukraine and this just makes me sick. Cheney is using this poor little country (literally) as a pawn in his sick game of world domination. What a disgusting, vile evil excuse for a human being.

I believe the invasion of South Osettia by Georgia was 100% sponsored by Cheney and Co. to demonize Russia. This is the systemic creation of the new axis of evil: Russia & Iran. With no objection from the world (sort of), and who cares about Russia-it's evil- the invasion of Iran proceeds.

I also believe that the USA is also merely a pawn in the hands of extremelly powerful group of people who are after the control of the worlds money supply. This really makes sense. If Iran is invaded, and gas goes to $300/ barrel, the US economy comes down with a big ugly crash. Isn't this what these bastards, Cheney being one of them, want anyway? A North American Union that emerges out of the economic collapse?

Holy $hit, I can't believe they're going to do it.

Is there no one with a shred of sense in Washington who can prevent this?

Virgo - great info. Thanks

Chris - I wouldn't advise you to hold your breath for a savior... It's not looking good.

I had been expecting an attack on Iran for more than two years. Recently, after their miscalculation in Georgia, I figured there was little chance of attacking Iran because more than ever such an attack could precipitate World War III. Interestingly enough, Iran said an attack on their country would initiate World War III!

It's now crazier to attack Iran than it was two years ago, which is why I thought an attack was "off the table." However, I may be giving these people to much credit for their sanity.

It may also be that they actually want to start WWIII. Maybe they are so desperate to obscure their culpability in the coming economic collapse that they will even resort to WWIII to do it. They might also believe that the U.S. will be left relatively stronger after WWIII, the last man standing, so to speak.

Whatever they are thinking, they are surely insane.
