False Flag Alert!
Pieces Falling Into Place For
Israeli-U.S. Attack On Iran

by Maj. William B. Fox
Dr. James H. Fetzer

8 August 2010


William B. Fox

Our nation appears to be on the verge of committing one of the greatest atrocities in human history. If reports of an imminent Israeli attack on Iran's nuclear energy facilities are well-founded — an attack that could only occur with the support of the United States — then an estimated 2.6 million Iranians may be killed outright and millions more would incur early deaths as contamination clouds sweep over Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. The reputation of the United States will be permanently tarnished. We urge that this not be allowed to happen. The evidence that leads us to issue this warning can be summarized as follows:
(1) According to widely quoted political analyst Webster Tarpley, the Zionist neocon “war party” has made a major “sea change” back towards favoring a direct attack against Iran.
In the years immediately following 2007, the year of the “B-52 Loose Nukes” fiasco and other abortive direct attack measures, the war party shifted to covert "color revolution" tactics in their attempts to overthrow the Iranian government. These covert measures have all been failures, as were "color revolutions” elsewhere, including the recent ouster of “Orange Revolution” leaders who were installed in the Ukraine in 2004.
Tarpley says that the threat of a military campaign against Iran is rapidly increasing. The troubled Obama administration has initiated special forces incursions designed to stir up rebellions among non-Persian nationalities of the Islamic Republic.
“Naturally, the probability of a new fake Gulf of Tonkin incident or false flag staged by the Anglo-American war party and attributed to Iran or its proxies is also growing rapidly,” noted Tarpley on July 21.1

(2) Other foreign sources reinforce Tarpley’s concerns. Steve Watson of, on July 27 published that “Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has stated that he believes the U.S., backed by Israel, is preparing to attack…at least two countries in the region within the next three months.” 2
Watson notes that former CIA head Gen. Michael Hayden has described an attack on Iran as “inexorable.” Warnings have also been issued by former Cuban leader Fidel Castro and former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad.
(3) Former U.S. Navy Intelligence officer Wayne Madsen has confirmed the Tarpley story:. On Aug. 3 he reported that “In the days before, during, and after Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Admiral Michael Mullen revealed the Pentagon has a military strike plan for Iran, part of that plan may have already been launched.
“WMR’s Lebanese sources report that a number of recent provocations in the region are being viewed by regional intelligence agencies in Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, Jordan, and Egypt as being launched by the United States Joint Special Operations Command in alliance with the Israelis,” he continued. 3
(4) Other domestic sources are confirming it, too, such as Paul Joseph Watson who wrote on Aug. 4 in that a Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity memo indicates that Netanyahu is planning a surprise attack “that will make it politically untenable for the U.S. to do anything other than offer full support for a military campaign.” 4
Watson observed that VIPS has suggested to Obama that he needs to publicly denounce such an attack in order to prevent a wider war and the “ultimate destruction of Israel.”
(5) Tarpley has suggested that the most likely time for an attack over the next three months is during a new moon, which provides maximum darkness for bombers and other stealth weapons. The new moon dates are Aug 10, Sept. 8, and Oct. 7.
(6) He also observes that one of the biggest Israeli and American worries regarding an attack on Iran is the Russian military reaction. Any joint U.S.-Russian exercise during a new moon period should be a cause of special concern, because high-level insiders who run false flag attacks typically utilize military exercises as a pretext to paralyze military reaction to their own false flag terror events.
As examples, numerous military and police exercises took place simultaneously with the 9/11 terror attacks in New York and Washington, D.C., as well as the 7/7/2005 bombings in London.
According to an Aug. 3 report in Interfax News (Xinhua), “Russia and the United States will conduct joint military exercises from Aug. 6 to 14... The drills, code-named `Vigilant Eagle,’ will involve air force servicemen from both countries who will conduct a simulated operation to free an airplane hijacked by terrorists, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Vladimir Drik said.” 5
(7) There are also signs of “predictive programming” in which controlled mass media use subliminal suggestion to induce fatalistic acceptance of bad Israeli-U.S. policies in advance.

The Aug. 9, 2010 issue of Sun, a tabloid available at grocery store checkout stands across America, carried the following headline:
“Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse appear Worldwide to herald... ARMAGEDDON 9/11/2010, MOTHER OF ALL WARS `JUST WEEKS AWAY’ …CHURCH LEADERS.”
The author of this article, Beth Gimmel, issued a similar doomsday prediction in 2005, but nevertheless it is easy to see how this warning can affect religious audiences today. 6
(8) “End timers” may be “right” on at least one intuitive level. The consequences in human suffering from nuclear blasts and accumulated depleted uranium poisoning are totally beyond any rational great power “chess game” calculations.
According to a June 21, 2008 article in Global Research by Physicians for Social Responsibility, regarding Iran, “In the immediate area of (the planned) attacks, our calculations show that within 48 hours, an estimated 2.6 million people would die… In a wider region, over 10.5 million people would be exposed to significant radiation from fallout…” 7
(9) There are ominous indications of high-level depopulation planning. Radiation expert Leuren Moret in an article entitled “From Hiroshima to Iraq, 61 years of uranium wars: A suicidal, genocidal, omnicidal course,” in Global Research on June 12, 2007 observed that: “Depleted uranium poison gas weaponry, used on a regional scale, meets U.S. National Security Council goals as stated in the `Global 2000 Report: Vision of a Gloomy World’ (1980).” 8
This report recommended that depopulation in third world countries is now an imperative to the U.S. government for the purpose of securing mineral and other strategic resources: "Global atmospheric pollution from depleted uranium particulates will result in massive depopulation on a global scale. By increasing death rates and decreasing birth rates globally, more than 2 billion people will be eliminated.”
(10) Propaganda is paving the way. In a July 30 interview with Alex Jones, Robert Chapman, a widely read political and economic expert, agreed with Tarpley about trumped up false allegations about Iran’s capability to build nuclear weapons within the next few years. Chapman cautioned that the “war party” is led by psychopathic and even psychotic people who are prepared to attack despite rational arguments. Among many other factors, the continuing economic melt-down and the exposure of their criminal behavior on the free Internet drives them towards desperate "perception management," "resource conquest," and "police state repression" measures.


We agree with Americans who believe in the principles for which their country has traditionally stood, and who have no choice except to stand up against those who would sacrifice earth’s habitability for the sake of power. High level malefactors also threaten to permanently tarnish the United States through one of the greatest atrocities in human history.
We must actively demand the restoration of sane, rational, honorable, and accountable leadership. We urge you to take all steps within your ability to let your elected government officials and other influential fellow citizens know that this is unacceptable policy. It is intolerable for the United State to be blackened by the deaths of millions in a violent and unjustified act that contravenes America's legitimate national interests, the U.S. Constitution, and all underlying principles of international law.

"...Jerusalem is also worried by the news that Russia has stationed S-300 anti-missile batteries in Abkhazia on the Black Sea because it ties in with the imminent activation of the Bushehr reactor. It is taken as a signal that Israel's air route to Iran is hereby closed and Moscow will do its utmost to thwart an Israeli strike against Iran's nuclear facilities ... after interviewing some 40 current and past Israeli decision makers and as many American and Arab officials, [author Jeffrey] Goldberg expects Israel to launch an attack with the next few months, possibly supported by the US and UK. But that was before the rescheduled Bushehr launching. Bolton has since made a point of narrowing the window of months to days."
