Venezuela Hosts Iranian Terrorists
Strategy Page ^ | 06.22.2008 | Strategy Page

Posted on 06/22/2008 1:03:50 PM PDT by Coffee200am

June 22, 2008: A new battlefield for the war on terror has developed in Venezuela. There, leftist president Hugo Chavez has not only established close diplomatic relations with Iran (and Cuba, North Korea and radical groups throughout the region), but has allowed Iran to set up operations in South America. Regular commercial flights from Iran to Venezuela (via Syria, to accommodate Hizbollah) carry people, cash and whatever else Iran wants to move. No questions asked, no visas required. Several U.S. counter-terrorism operations have gone to work, trying to find out what Iran is up to, and how to block any terrorist activity. For example, the U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control is looking to block attempts by Iran and Hizbollah to get around banking restrictions placed on their terrorist activities, by opening bank branches in Venezuela. Hizbollah is using its new base in Venezuela to support its fund raising, and purely criminal activities, in South America. Iran is looking to support attacks against South American Jews, plus any other mischief it can pull off.

You probably mean the Cuban Blockade all over again. Either way, I disagree. Chavez is not as clever as Fidel. The Iranian head case is not Khruchev. There is no sanity on that side and, with Bush out of the WH, no will to win on ours.

Thanks george, you are a WEALTH of info on a lot of topics.

I have bookmarked those leaks and emailed them to all my Jewish friends, and many others.

After researching and doing a lot of reading for the column about my fishing buddy in WWII, I realize, with much sadness, we will be asking young men for many years to come to defend this country, and lose lives in the process. I hope President Bush will address the war declared by Iran on the U.S. before he leaves office (take out Iran’s nukes), because I really fear what future battlefields are going to be like.

Yes, and it won’t be confined to Jewish people. With the Marxist Chavez stirring the pot there will be trouble for anyone not going along with his ideas. Him getting cozy with Ahmanutjob and Raoul exacerbates it.

House Resolution Calls for Naval Blockade against Iran
America’s powerful pro-Israel lobby pressures the US Congress

by Andrew W Cheetham

A US House of Representatives Resolution effectively requiring a naval blockade on Iran seems fast tracked for passage, gaining co-sponsors at a remarkable speed, but experts say the measures called for in the resolutions amount to an act of war.

H.CON.RES 362 calls on the president to stop all shipments of refined petroleum products from reaching Iran. It also "demands" that the President impose "stringent inspection requirements on all persons, vehicles, ships, planes, trains and cargo entering or departing Iran."

Analysts say that this would require a US naval blockade in the Strait of Hormuz.

Since its introduction three weeks ago, the resolution has attracted 146 cosponsors. Forty-three members added their names to the bill in the past two days.

In the Senate, a sister resolution S.RES 580 has gained co-sponsors with similar speed. The Senate measure was introduced by Indiana Democrat Evan Bayh on June 2. In little more than a week’s time, it has accrued 19 co-sponsors. http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=9377

Oddly enough, scads of Rats are in on this.

New Pentagon Report: China's Growing Military Space Power
By Leonard David
Special Correspondent, SPACE.com
March 6, 2008

GOLDEN, Colorado — A just-released Pentagon report spotlights a growing U.S. military concern that China is developing a multi- dimensional program to limit or prevent the use of space-based assets by its potential adversaries during times of crisis or conflict.

Furthermore, last year's successful test by China of a direct-ascent, anti-satellite (ASAT) weapon to destroy its own defunct weather satellite, the report adds, underscores that country's expansion from the land, air, and sea dimensions of the traditional battlefield into the space and cyber-space domains.

Although China's commercial space program has utility for non- military research, that capability demonstrates space launch and control know-how that have direct military application. Even the Chang'e 1 — the Chinese lunar probe now circling the Moon — is flagged in the report as showcasing China's ability "to conduct complicated space maneuvers — a capability which has broad implications for military counterspace operations."

Russia, China flex muscles in joint war games
Reuters: Aug 17, 2007

CHEBARKUL, Russia (Reuters) - Russia and China staged their biggest joint exercises on Friday but denied this show of military prowess could lead to the formation of a counterweight to NATO.

"Today's exercises are another step towards strengthening the relations between our countries, a step towards strengthening international peace and security, and first and foremost, the security of our peoples," Putin said.

Fighter jets swooped overhead, commandos jumped from helicopters on to rooftops and the boom of artillery shells shook the firing range in Russia's Ural mountains as two of the largest armies in the world were put through their paces.

The exercises take place against a backdrop of mounting rivalry between the West, and Russia and China for influence over Central Asia, a strategic region that has huge oil, gas and mineral resources.

Russia's growing assertiveness is also causing jitters in the West. Putin announced at the firing range that Russia was resuming Soviet-era sorties by its strategic bomber aircraft near NATO airspace.

Obama Pledges Cuts in Missile Defense, Space, and Nuclear Weapons Programs

February 29, 2008 :: News
MissileThreat.com

A video has surfaced of Presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama talking on his plans for strategic issues such as nuclear weapons and missile defense.

The full text from the video, as released, reads as follows:

Thanks so much for the Caucus4Priorities, for the great work you've been doing. As president, I will end misguided defense policies and stand with Caucus4Priorities in fighting special interests in Washington.

First, I'll stop spending $9 billion a month in Iraq. I'm the only major candidate who opposed this war from the beginning. And as president I will end it.[i.e. not win it]

Second, I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending.

I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems.

I will not weaponize space.

I will slow our development of future combat systems.

And I will institute an independent "Defense Priorities Board" to ensure that the Quadrennial Defense Review is not used to justify unnecessary spending.

Third, I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons. To seek that goal, I will not develop new nuclear weapons; I will seek a global ban on the production of fissile material; and I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBMs off hair-trigger alert, and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals.

You know where I stand. I've fought for open, ethical and accountable government my entire public life. I don't switch positions or make promises that can't be kept. I don't posture on defense policy and I don't take money from federal lobbyists for powerful defense contractors. As president, my sole priority for defense spending will be protecting the American people. Thanks so much.

Obama Promises to Dismantle Our Armed Forces
by Robert Maginnis
Posted 04/10/2008 ET


(Mr. Maginnis is a retired Army lieutenant colonel, a national security and foreign affairs analyst for radio and television and a senior strategist with the U.S. Army)

YouTube has an undated 52-second clip of Democratic presidential candidate Senator Barrack Obama outlining his plans for America’s national defense. Obama’s presentation demonstrates either total naivete about important national security programs or he is just pandering for votes among the extreme left.

At first they appear strange bedfellows (Iran together with Venezuela, Russia and China). But when you read Ahmadinejad's own words (below), he sounds exactly like these communists. I wonder if the student uprising/revolution he helped lead during the Carter years was backed by the Russians? My guess is he's a Moscow puppet. It would explain an awful lot of what we are hearing and reading today. The guy really does sound a lot more like a radical leftist 'intellectual' than an Islamic extremist. Check out his choice of words, assuming of course the translation is accurate.

From WorldThreats.com:
"Chavez pledged that his country would 'stay by Iran at any time and under any condition,' state television reported. Ahmadinejad said he saw in Chavez a kindred spirit." "'We do not have any limitation in cooperation,' Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying. 'Iran and Venezuela are next to each other and supporters of each other.

McCain has made a number of troubling comments regarding our nuclear arsenal.  The problem with them is that his plans hinge on agreements and inspections that have proven over time to be unreliable.  And when it comes to nuclear weapons, being wrong is fatal.  Nobody likes it, but MADD is the proper course.  When other nations posess nuclear weapons, there is no other policy.  Any other policy is simply suicidal.  It encourages tyranical states to think they just may be able to win a nuclear war, and that's something we should leave absolutely no doubt about.  We need thousands of nuclear warheads ready to go, so that no nation thinks it can pull off a surprise attack and weather the paultry response.  The response must be unthinkable for any nation to contemplate.

One of the few things I disagreed with Ronald Reagan on, was our nuclear stockpile.  Yes it would be wonderful if there were no nuclear weapons on this planet.  It would also be nice if every human was a multi-millionaire and there were no poor.  There are a lot of things I would like to be the case, but they aren't.  And disarming the United States without making the world a vastly more dangerous place, is one of them.

John states that inspections will allow us to disarm.  Yep, the same inspections that couldn't determine that Hussein didn't have WMDs, is now his great idea for making sure others don't have nukes so we can destroy most of our own.

This article touches on John's dreams for our future.  They cause me to think those dreams are a nightmare.  He wants to reduce our nuclear arsenal to the lowest possible number.  He wants to withdraw our battlefield tactical nuclear weapons from Europe.

In short, John is the 2008 version of George McGovern.  Well, okay, he's not quite as bad, but he might actually get a chance to do what he wants to, and that makes him a dangerous threat to our nation IMO.  Put this man in office and you'll see people across this forum backing some of the worst policy decisions in the History of the United States.  Yep, that's the eventuality I'm hoping to realize.  NOT!

One of the few things I disagreed with Ronald Reagan on, was our nuclear stockpile.

I didn't. I approved of everything he did and tried to do. The INF treaty was the only reduction he authorized, while everything else was modernized.

The INF treaty defanged the nuclear freezers. Reagan was proved to have been right. That if you are to negotiate with tyrants, you have to negotiate from strength.

We never would have had the B1B or the B2 or the MX missiles, not to mention SDI, but for Reagan. Carter and the rats would have traded them away.

The main cuts have occurred subsequent to Reagan, with GHWB eliminating our tactical inventory...unilaterally. Xlinton and W slashing our Minutemen in more than half. And W all on his lonesome UNILATERALLY decomissioning our brand-new MX missiles...all while Russia deploys the Topol-M super missile...and keeps its full inventory of SS-18s. China and Russia remained armed to the teeth in regard to tacticals as well.

Reagan's motto, "Trust, but Verify" was, in his hands, a tool which would have ultimately resulted in fairly serious action upon detection of falsehood by the Russkies. Unfortunately, in Xlinton's hands, the verification went out the window...even when it was discovered that the Russians had clearly knowingly tried to cheat and hide S-22s in tunnels and such in Eastern Europe...only to be ratted out after the Soviet Union's collapse. Since the "new" Russia never admitted to these deceptions, despite Yeltsin's pledges, we should have actively kept the Eastern Bloc states from surrendering any of the nukes back to Russia. Should have kept the arsenal splintered.

And then bought it off their hands.

Paul, I’m not going to disagree with the agreements Reagan made. I merely address the desire on his part to destroy all nuclear weapons by some point in time.

I don’t care how well we try to avoid it, if we disarm at any point, we’ll be destroyed. It’s the one infalible fact of human history, nations that disarm are soon relegated to the ash heap of history.

I wouldn't argue against that. Reagan was merely forcing the sentimentalists to confront reality, He himself wasn't ever going to disarm unilaterally. Unfortunately, his RINO heirs did.

Thanks for the additional comments Paul. You may be right about Reagan’s long term hopes. I didn’t care to see him advocate for zero nukes at any point in time, but your take on it is fine with me.

You’ll get no arguement out of me that those who followed him, were far less than stellar.
