Subject: Will There Be War With Iran?


As each day passes, the possibility of a military conflict with Iran
draws closer. Are we about the see a war with Iran? What will be the
outcome, and how will this affect the US and its allies.

Let�s look at the situation as in stands at present.

The USA, after the disastrous and unnecessary invasion of Iraq, is now
faced with a real threat to its national security, not the imagined
threat Saddam Hussein was alleged to be. Partly as a result of the Iraqi
invasion, the USA now no longer has the economic and military resources
to consider a land invasion and occupation of Iran as it did with Iraq.
More importantly, the lack of political support for such an invasion
within the USA would make this difficult to mount a land invasion at
this time. To invade Iran would mean bringing back conscription and
placing an unsustainable pressure on the US budget.

Iraq has become America�s Achilles� heel. Most informed commentators now
acknowledge that there is little chance America achieving victory in
Iraq. Public opinion in the US has turned against the occupation of
Iraq, and with little prospects of victory being achieved; there is a
growing demands for a US withdrawal. Yet for America and Britain to
withdraw from Iraq would have disastrous consequences to America�s
influence in the Middle East. It would allow Iran to gain defacto
control of Iraq, and threaten the control of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf
States. It would leave Iran in control of Middle East oil.

Sadly, the American people have turned against the Bush administration
and continuing the war in Iraq. While over 80% of Americans supported
the invasion, less than 30% now support the war. Current domestic
problems within the Bush Administration are paralyzing its ability to
provide any effective leadership in resolving the challenge from Iran.
What many Americans fail to realize that there is no easy option but to
continue the occupation of Iraq � withdrawal would play right into
Iran�s hands, allowing it to gain a strategic position to gain control
of the Persian Gulf. Yet the longer America has to stay in Iraq, the
worse the situation will become.

The American withdrawal from Iraq would allow Iran to gain control of
Middle East oil and be in a position to blackmail the West into
supporting its goal of destroying Israel. This is the real threat to
Israel and the West � not Iran having nuclear weapons. While the Sunnis
and Shiites are religious rivals, they are both Muslim and share common
goal of having Jerusalem become a Muslim city.

This time Europe and America are united in their opposition to Iran
developing its own nuclear capacity through its enrichment of uranium.
Unlike the US rhetoric and propaganda leading up to the invasion of
Iraq, the Bush administration has been much more cautious on how America
will respond to the Iranian threat. There are a number of reasons for
this, some of which are:

1. America does not wish to become bogged down in another land war in
the Middle East � its military is stretched coping with
Afghanistan and Iraq.
2. Its economy is also stretched, with record budget and current
account deficits, and increasingly depended on attracting overseas
capital to meet the short-fall.
3. The threat to the global economy if the supply of oil through the
Persian Gulf was cut off, which is a real possibility if Iran is
4. An international lack of confidence in the US dollar if the US
invades Iran.

Both China and Russia see no benefit to their global strategic interests
in supporting a UN Security Council resolution to impose a trade embargo
against Iran. China, India and Japan are all dependent on oil from Iran
and an embargo would not be in their interests. Russia is using the
opportunity of the conflict to gain strategic influence in the Middle
East and has can see no interest in supporting the West through the UN.
Europe and America must confront the challenge from Iran alone.

The real threat of Iran to the West is the danger of loosing control of
the Persian Gulf, which for the last 100 years has been controlled by
the Anglo/American alliance. Without control of the Persian Gulf would
mean loosing control of the Middle East oil to other competing powers.
China, Japan and India will put their own strategic interests ahead of
supporting those of America and Britain. As the global supply of oil
declines, and demand increases, alliances will be formed out of economic
necessity, not previous loyalties to any one nation.

Russia is increasingly gaining economic strength through its new oil
wealth, and would like to see the role of the US dollar has the currency
for financing the international oil market replaced with an alternative
reserve currency, and have the ruble become fully convertible. Iran,
which has been under a US trade embargo for the last 20 years, has only
been able to accept Euros for the payment of its oil for sometime. With
the steady decline in the value of the US dollar, other oil producing
nations are likely to switch to the Euro for oil for their oil
purchases, similar to Iran, including Russia. This would bring about the
demise of the $US.

Iran is fully aware of America�s weaknesses, and has decided to call
America�s bluff. Not only has it challenged the US on its right to
develop its own nuclear facilities, it has also publicly declared that
Israel must be wiped off the map. If the USA allows the challenge to go
without response, it will undermine it authority not only in the Middle
East, but in the entire would. Yet there is little the US can do, except
use nuclear weapons to destroy Iran�s nuclear production facilities.

Is Iran really a threat to Israel and the West, or should the threats
made President Mahmud Ahmadinejad not be taken seriously? Is the
rhetoric from Iran�s President to shore up his domestic position or is
he serious? I believe he is serious. Iran has told the US and Europe �
we are going to continue with the development of our nuclear facilities,
regardless of what the West says. This is a direct challenge to America,
and if let go unanswered, will been seen as weakness in many parts of
the world.

Iran is unlikely to directly threaten Israel in the immediate future,
even if it does develop nuclear weapons. It�s continued to support of
Palestinian terrorist organisations is a greater immediate threat to
Israel�s security than the possible nuclear threat. Even if Iran did
launch a nuclear attack against Israel, it would only result in Israel
launching a massive retaliatory nuclear attack against Iran with
disastrous consequences to their own country.

What can the US and its allies do? What will be the outcome of the
growing confrontation between the West and Iran? Will there be war with

It is very unlikely that the US will actually invade Iran or even bomb
the country. Rather, it will continue pursuing diplomatic channels to
encourage Iran to dismantle its nuclear facilities. This will be
ineffective, be seen as weakness by Iran, and will do nothing to deter
Iran from pursuing its goal of obtaining nuclear weapons and destroying

Unlike with Iraq, the leaders of France and Germany have supported the
USA in opposing Iran in obtaining nuclear weapons. If the USA does not
step up and confront Iran at this time, Europe will have to fill the
vacuum. Europe, even more so than the USA, can not afford to lose access
to Middle East oil, or be blackmailed by the Muslim nations to oppose
the existence of Israel.

What will be the sequences of events resulting from not confronting the
challenged from Iran? The chain of events Iran is likely to adopt is:

1. Increase anti-American propaganda.
2. Develop strategic alliances and support from China in return for
securing the supply of oil.
3. Pressure on OPEC to move from accepting payment of oil in
currencies, other than the $US.
4. Increase support for anti-Israeli terrorist groups.
5. Seek closer alliances with Russia.
6. Increase support of anti-American Shiite political groups in Iraq.
7. Attempt to overthrow of the Governments of Saudi Arabia and the
Gulf States with pro-Iranian regimes.

The war with Iraq was the last through of the dice of the Anglo/American
alliance. The failure to achieve victory in Iraq has highlighted the
limitations of the Anglo Saxon alliance which has so successfully
dominated the world economically and military for the last 200 years.
Its failure will mean the end of the US dollar being retained as a
reserve currency, their economic collapse, and their end of their
ability to influence world events. It will mean the end of the dominance
of the English speaking people, and bring on a time of great tribulation
upon them.

The outcome will be a united Europe that will fill the power vacuum
following the demise of the United States. What we are seeing unfold
over the coming months is a significant shift of global power, from the
Anglo/American alliance to Europe. The coming collapse of the US dollar
will see a re-aligning of the global powers greater and quicker than few
now comprehend.

How has America and Britain got themselves into this mess where their
military and economic power be directly challenged? Can they save
themselves from the coming destruction? For more information on this,

Subject: SHAmnesty Undeniable

SHAmnesty Undeniable
There is still time to make your "Day after the Bush speech" calls to your US Senators. Contact them let them know we are not as stupid as the President's speech writers imagine we must be. NO to the Amnesty bill the US Senate is riduculously claiming is not Amnesty.

May 16, 2006, 1:12 a.m.
Amnesty Undeniable

The most important part of Monday night�s speech by President Bush on immigration was not his call for sending unarmed National Guardsmen to temporarily assist the Border Patrol.
Rather, it was his formal embrace, for the first time, of citizenship for illegal aliens.

When he first laid out his view on a foreign-worker program two years ago, he was explicit that illegal aliens could sign up but that �this program expects temporary workers to return permanently to their home countries after their period of work in the United States has expired.�

Last night, the president rightly emphasized security, and rightly stressed the importance of assimilation�while advocating a policy that would make assimilation much harder. He adopted the position of Senators Kennedy and McCain and other amnesty supporters, saying that illegal aliens who meet certain conditions should be able to apply for citizenship. He denied that this represented amnesty because �approval would not be automatic��but when have immigrants ever received �automatic� citizenship?

If the purpose of the speech was to shore up the president�s standing with conservatives, it failed. This administration�s lack of credibility on immigration enforcement can�t be reversed by adding a few National Guard references to its tired rhetoric of unmanned aerial vehicles and more detention beds.

Only action can reverse doubts about the White House�s commitment to enforcement�and even the positive actions the administration has taken are less than they appear. For instance, the president pledged (yet again) to end the practice of �catch and release� for non-Mexican illegals at the border. The immigration service has indeed made progress in adding detention space for such people and speeding their return home, but is still releasing captured illegals back into communities.
Likewise, the arrests several weeks ago of nearly 1,200 illegal aliens working for IFCO Systems were widely touted as heralding a new wave of legal action against crooked employers�but then most of the illegals were released within hours of the raids.

Finally, President Bush reassured an anxious Mexican president Vicente Fox over the weekend that any deployment would be only temporary, and that the regular Army would not be involved�in other words, �Don�t worry, Se�or Presidente, it�s just symbolism.� [why does he care about Fox?]

As for the Senate�s compromise bill, the Heritage Foundation has released research that should torpedo it. Robert Rector, one of the nation�s leading authorities on poverty and welfare, has estimated that the bill would admit a staggering 103 million people over the next two decades and represent �the largest expansion of the welfare state in 35 years.� Supporters of the bill call their approach �comprehensive,� and they�re right: They aren�t content merely to deal with the current illegal population or to address a supposed shortage of unskilled labor, but want to effect a massive demographic reshuffling of America while they�re at it.

In his Oval Office address, the president squandered what was probably his last chance to reconnect with conservatives on immigration. They will undoubtedly note that the president has waited six years to start talking about enforcement, and will accordingly ask why he can�t postpone his amnesty long enough to give enforcement at try? A speech that had reiterated his support for amnesty in theory, but conceded that enforcement had to come first, would likely have won significant public approval and helped shape events in Congress. The speech he actually gave, on the other hand, is likely further to demoralize conservatives and harden opposition among House Republicans to the Senate amnesty proposal. President Bush�s speech, contrary to its goal, probably ensures that no immigration bill will reach his desk this year. Given the options, that�s probably a good thing.

"The ends justify the means" Vs. "Lawful and right in the eyes of GOD"

"The ends justify the means" is the guiding principle of all who
operate in the dark.

Imagine a world, where not only those in the dark, but EVERYONE
practices this principle. What do you think the world would become
? Would you like this principle being applied to you ?

A caterpillar changes into a cocoon, then into a butterfly in days.
An egg changes into a chick in days. Then why do you believe
evolution, that changes have to be in billions of years ?

GOD created everything. GOD even created Satan, and the evil
spirits, who are fallen angels and spirits that rebel against GOD,
their creator. (GOD originally created the angels to help Him manage
all things, including administering GOD's Laws, but some angels
rebel). Beware of these spirits.


GOD's laws are roughly like this --

(*) If XXX steals an ox from YYY, and if XXX keeps it and has
not killed it, then XXX has to repay DOUBLE to YYY.

(*) But if XXX steals an ox from YYY, and immediately disposes of
it by killing it and selling the meat, then XXX has to repay 5
times (5 oxen) to YYY.

Everyday, myriads of angel are busy working, administering GOD's
justice -- blessings to those who keep the laws/commandments,
cursings to the law breakers, according to [Lev 26].

If you break the laws, and if you cannot repay in full in this life,
you will have to pay every bit of it in hell, and even eternally if
your wickedness so deserve it.

If you keep the laws/commandments, GOD will compensate you according
to His laws (e.g. 5 oxen repaid back to you if someone stole your ox
and disposed it wickedly), and even more, award you eternal life in
paradise and in the coming New Heaven and New Earth.

form of human, and experienced things we human experience, including
death on a cross

Jesus : "Turn, all ye Gentiles, from your wicked ways; and repent of
your evil doings, of your lyings and deceivings, and of your
whoredoms, and of your secret abominations, and your idolatries, and
of your murders, and your priestcrafts, and your envyings, and your
strifes, and from all your wickedness and abominations, and come unto
me, and be baptized in my name, that ye may receive a remission of
your sins, and be filled with the Holy Ghost, that ye may be numbered
with my people who are of the house of Israel."

Pin you faith onto Jesus, who has been resurrected, and who holds all
authority in heaven and on earth.

Jesus has the final say in all happenings on earth.

Blessed are you if you put your whole trust onto him and walk his
teachings, and bear the cross to follow him onto the end.

Enter the narrow gate and walk the narrow path.

No one knows when Judgement will come

Jesus : "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels
of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so
shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that
were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and
giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, And
knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also
the coming of the Son of man be."

her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.

shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the
full, and dwell in your land safely.

6 And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none
shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land,
neither shall the sword go through your land.

7 And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by
the sword.

8 And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you
shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before
you by the sword.

9 For I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and
multiply you, and establish my covenant with you.

13 I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land
of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the
bands of your yoke, and made you go upright.

14 But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these

15 And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my
judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye
break my covenant:

16 I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you
terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the

for your enemies shall eat it.

17 And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before
your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall
flee when none pursueth you.

18 And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will
punish you seven times more for your sins.

22 I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of
your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number;
and your high ways shall be desolate.

23 And if ye will not be reformed by me by these things, but will
walk contrary unto me;

24 Then will I also walk contrary unto you, and will punish you yet
seven times for your sins.

25 And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel
of my covenant: and when ye are gathered together within your cities,
I will send the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into
the hand of the enemy.

desolate, and ye be in your enemies' land; even then shall the land
rest, and enjoy her sabbaths.

35 As long as it lieth desolate it shall rest; because it did not
rest in your sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it.

into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; and the sound of a
shaken leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee, as fleeing from a
