Israel believes it could carry out strikes on Iran with under 500 civilian fatalities

Israel believes it could carry out strikes on Iran with under 500 civilian fatalities

By Adrian Blomfield,

Ehud Barak raised the prospect of military action with Iran once again as he hinted that splits in the international community over imposing sanctions regarded as crippling enough by Israel could leave the Jewish state with no option but to take matters into its own hands.

The warning came as a report by UN weapons inspectors into Iran’s nuclear activities was made public, concluding that the Islamist regime is closer to building an atom bomb than ever before.

Mr Barak conceded that the price of air strikes against Iran would be high, with Iran retaliating by firing long-range missiles at Israeli cities and encouraging its allies Hizbollah and Hamas to unleash their vast rocket arsenals at the country.

But he insisted that claims of huge destruction in Israel were overblown and that the country could survive the retaliation.

“There is no way to prevent some damage,” he said. “It will not be pleasant. There is no scenario for 50,000 dead, or 5,000 killed – and if everyone stays in their homes, maybe not even 500 dead.”

Mr Barak said the International Atomic Energy Agency’s report represents “the final opportunity” for the United Nations Security Council to punish Iran with sanctions of sufficient severity to force Iran into abandoning its nuclear ambitions.

Demanding that the international community finally take action to target Tehran’s vital energy sector, he called for a naval blockade to prevent Iran exploiting oil.

Although such a measure would undoubtedly do serious harm to Iran’s energy-dependent economy, even the United States is said to be concerned about the impact it would have on oil prices at a time of heightened vulnerability for the world economy.

Mr Barak predicted that opposition by Russia and China would make it impossible to achieve consensus in the Security Council for such sanctions, leaving military action increasingly as the only option.

“I don’t think it will be possible to form such a coalition,”
he told Israeli radio.

“As long as no such sanctions have been imposed and proven effective, we continue to recommend to our friends in the world and to ourselves not to take any action off the table.”

Mr Barak’s comments crown a week of increasingly bellicose language in Israel that is widely seen as more an attempt to force the United Nations Security Council into using the toughest possible sanctions against Iran rather than presaging imminent military action.

Even so, his rhetoric will cause alarm, with Russia and even some European states warning against the folly of unilateral Israeli action.

Alain Juppe, the French foreign minister, said on Tuesday that though concerns remained high about Iran’s nuclear programme, “we have to do everything we can to avoid the irreparable damage that military action would cause”.

Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian president, said a military strike on Iran could be a “catastrophe” for the Middle East.

“We should exhale, calm down and continue a constructive discussion of all issues on the Middle East agenda, including the Iranian nuclear program,” said Mr Medvedev, a day after an Asian security summit in St Petersburg that included Iran.

US officials said they hoped the IAEA report would increase leverage for tougher sanctions, rather than short term pressure for air strikes.

The “war camp” in the Israeli cabinet is believed to be in a minority that is championed primarily by Mr Barak and Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister.

But many Israeli politicians will agree with the defence minister’s assertion that the IAEA report represents “the last opportunity for coordinated, lethal sanctions that will force Iran to stop”.

Israel believes that Iran is intent on moving the bulk of its nuclear production underground within months, after which it will be harder than ever to launch effective military action.

Congress moves to Nationalize Media

Congress Wanting To End Local TV Stations, Creates National Control over Media

Source: USWGO Alternative News

When Hitler wanted national control over Germany he took control of all media including the newspapers and radio when he implemented national socialism. I had just discovered that months ago elite members of the U.S. congress we’re planning to take away our local TV stations due to the fact that the truth movement, 9/11 truth activists, Alex Jones, and other political activists have appeared in Local TV Stations which prompts that Local TV is beating the mainstream medias attempt to control and silence the truth.

It is very difficult to keep control of all TV Stations across the country unlike the national and international mainstream corporate controlled media, so if the congress had a plan to oust the local news stations all across the country then that would mean that the only TV Stations we would be allowed to watch are all national news media that don’t care about the violence in local neighborhoods or anything that goes on in the local areas all over America.

I found out that months ago and the mainstream media will not cover this, apparently certain members of congress were plotting to shut off local TV stations according to WJXT Jacksonville and a YouTube user named NABroadcasters.

Even if it just means that we cannot access it for free anymore via TV Antennas even with DTV Converters and that’s all the threat is, any attempt to make the local news stations wanna shut down would be a success in the elites eyes to further control and suppress the truth.

Now of course why am I saying that the local TV Stations are better then the mainstream media, because they have been covering things that the mainstream national media will not cover.

First of all KXAN the Austin Texas local news station covers Alex Jone’s rants, protests, and anything to do with Alex Jones that affects Austin Texas has been covered by KXAN.

Two of KXAN videos are embedded below:

Then with me being targeted by a proxy law firm called Righthaven that buys copyrights under the Strategic Alliance Agreements to secretly keep control of copyrights but claims they own the copyrights when they sue individuals. The law firm that targeted me was highly connected with the Clintons, Bushes (The Bushes are at the heart of the New World Order master plan), and it’s CEO Steve Gibson was connected with the Obamas making it a choice law firm to target me. The reasons I am even mentioning this is because even though I run a truth website exposing the Bilderberg elite the local news stations covered my story even though they know I am against the Bilderberg Group.

Then a 9/11 truther managed to get himself on a local news station in his area according to the video embedded below:


Local News Covers Arizona 9/11 Truth by BadKitty

Even a local news station confirms that barium is in the chemtrails spread out in the sky.

So the fact that the truth activists are making local news networks are creating a problem for the high class elite that controls the tip top of the mainstream corporate media. The fact is even though they do they cannot possibly control every local TV news station across the country, even if they do some may slip up and let the truth go out to the masses of a regional or local area.

So for that reason alone the congress wants the local TV stations to disappear forever so that we watch only National media programs where you are brainwashed into anything even youth brigades.

Of course the local stations could just be online only and the newspapers are still around but many are being bought up by pro NAFTA Super-highway corporations, Stephens Media, Media News Group Inc., and WEHCO Media. That means that local newspapers may not even tell you the truth. Then what about the local stations online? Even if they are a last resource they can easily be ignored since the public are more opt to watch their cable or satellite TV then they would a YouTube video for news so instead of Local TV Stations people will watch the national and international hand picked media outlets.

Also before the attempt to squash the local TV Stations Hillary Clinton old the congress that they are losing the information war.

If the elite succeed with shutting down local news stations then it will be another milestone in the scheme to control information. Then the last thing the elite will shut down will be the Internet. Once that is done there will be no means to getting the word out about certain political issues anymore.
