See No Evil

The pundits still don't see or don't want to see the truth about why the Bush administration attacked and invaded Iraq.

The crucial factor in President Bush’s decision to attack Iraq was to help Israel. Based on prodding by zioncons Richerd Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, David Wurmser and Charles Krauthammer, Bush resolved to invade and subdue one of Israel’s chief regional enemies.

In May 2004, Senator Ernest Hollings acknowledged that the US invaded Iraq “to secure Israel,” and “everybody knows it.” Hollings referred to the cowardly reluctance of his Congressional colleagues to acknowledge this truth openly, saying, “Nobody is willing to stand up and say what is going on.” Due to "the pressures we get politically," he added, “members of Congress uncritically support Israel and its policies.”

Retired four-star US Army General and former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Wesley Clark acknowledged in an interview published in The Guardian: “Those who favour this attack [against Iraq] now will tell you candidly, and privately, that it is probably true that Saddam Hussein is no threat to the United States. But they are afraid at some point he might decide if he had a nuclear weapon to use it against Israel."

The only country in the Middle East with weapons of mass destruction is Israel.

In short, the US bombed, invaded and occupied Iraq so that Saddam Hussein or any other Iraqi could not be a future WMD threat to Israel. It didn't really matter whether Iraq had WMDs or not. They were never to acquire them.

According to Bob Woodward of the Washington Post, President Bush met in the White House with eleven members of the US House of Representatives six months before the attack. While the “war against terrorism is going okay,” he told the lawmakers, the United States would soon have to deal with a greater danger: “The biggest threat, however, is Saddam Hussein and his weapons of mass destruction. He can blow up Israel and that would trigger an international conflict.”

Bush also spoke candidly about why the US was going to war during a White House meeting on Feb. 27, 2003, just three weeks before the invasion, reported Woodward in Plan of Attack. In a talk with Elie Wiesel, the well-known Jewish writer, Bush said, “If we don’t disarm Saddam Hussein, he will put a weapon of mass destruction on Israel and they will do what they think they have to do, and we have to avoid that.”

With Iraq secured by occupying forces, Israel and the zioncons could turn their attention to Iran. In order to facilitate that, the Israelis have been doing what American politicians call "flip-flops", saying that they did not encourage the United States to attack Iraq; and their major concern has always been Iran.

The May 28, 2008 newsletter of the American Jewish Committee told readers to “urge your representative to cosponsor H.Con.Res.362. It seeks economic, political and diplomatic efforts to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.”

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, spoke of an “American-Israeli consensus on the need to stop Iran’s nuclear program by whatever means necessary."
