Globalist Think Tank Suggests Using Engineered Event As Excuse For War With Iran

What is interesting about this discussion by the Washington Institute For Near East Policy, a Neocon (Globalist) think-tank, is that its primary purpose is not necessarily to debate the current political elements of the Iranian question.  They aren't contemplating the viability or morality of a war with Iran.  Instead, they are attempting to devise strtegies by which the government could CONVINCE the American public and the world that a war with Iran is the "right thing to do", even if it means fabricating their own justification.  For them, the war is a forgone conclusion, and they will do anything to make it a reality.

Think tanks like this not only construct policy framework, but they also write the subversive talking points used in the mainstream media that manipulate the masses into acceptance of that framework.  In the video below, there is no suggestion that Iran be left alone if the will of the public leans away from conflict.  Instead, Patrick Clawson (who works frequently with the Council On Foreign Relations) openly suggests that a Gulf Of Tonkin style event be ENGINEERED (he uses the phrase "covert means") in order to force a war into being.

Consider for a moment the kind of person that it takes to nonchalantly present such a scenario; a scenario which would use the unjust deaths of innocent people (likely Americans) in order to trick the masses into supporting yet another meaningless war which will undoubtedly cost hundreds of thousands if not millions more innocent lives.  Think about the moral relativism and dark-heartedness that is required to embrace this philosophy in the pithy and clinical way Clawson does.  Now realize that our government today is heavily populated by men and women who think in exactly this manner.  This is the rotten core of America's foreign policy on display for all to see.  Take note and remember what is suggested here the next time a sudden "attack" is blamed on a convenient scapegoat like Iran and used as a primer for invasion...

Why don't they fight their own fucking fights!

Precious's picture

Can't even comprehend the element of surprise.  

Never heard of Youtube?  You dumb, conceited fuckers.

We need to find out who this prick is, anyway.  This is fucking sedition.

Fukushima Sam's picture

Surprised he didn't bring up 9/11 and the vaporous "War on Terror".

Precious's picture

This jackass is Patrick Clawson and he should be tried by the US Congress for conspiracy to commit sedition.

Just because he's wearing a tie instead of camo, doesn't give him a fucking pass.  Citizen militia have been jailed for far less than this shit.

For anyone who thinks false flags are "conspiracy theories",  here's your PROOF POSITIVE.

Blue backgrounds are wonderful "playgrounds" for video editors.  They're basically the same as blue-screens used in films, and allow you to insert any background you want.   A more talented video editor could probably have made the logo look like it was dropping into the crevices, instead of magically spanning them.

Will Tyler offer a retraction of this obviously doctored video?   Don't bet on it.   Sorry folks.  This is clearly not real.  And even an amateur can see that the logos have been clumsily inserted.   Making the logo move with the field of view is also extremely easy.   Fake.

If anyone wants to chat with Clawson about how clever he is, I'm sure he's got nothing else to do:

Hey if NeoCons have this much power...lets see how they can make Obama dance.

Are we not watching this happen in real time?

Iamadodge said exactly that in his speech today. Actually, other than pleading for God to send his promised son, he was pretty direct. The commentatory was NeoCon injected on just about every media. All poo-pooing his "conspiratorial" scenario.

And, all I could think was John Perkins and his "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man"...

Precious's picture

Popo.  You're such an asshat.  The whole video is on their own fucking web site.

blindman's picture

right, he is a self identifying terrorist and
is in, hob knobs, with those in high places.
there ya go, end of discussion. is he being
questioned or water boarded or imprisoned?
certainly not because he runs with the pack,
the professional terrorist pack. terrorist think
tankers, inc.. "leadership" is the term i think,
imbeciles we used to call them.

Tried by the US Congress??? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
What, did he use steroids and deny it or something? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!

Precious's picture

I know you're mocking the reptiles in congress.  And that's fine.  But we won't be laughing if these assholes get us into a war with Iran.  We don't need to be fucking Nazis and accept this shit from the fascists running DC think tanks.

Here's the whole video clip.  It gets even worse.

"engineered event"

is that that special engineering school I read about

what do they call that degree, uncivil engineering?

The USS Enterprise, CVN-65 is scheduled for deactivation on 1 December, 2012 at the Norfolk Naval Station in Virginia.

Its current location is the Persian Gulf.....


unemployed's picture

What a coincidence.   Building 7 was scheduled for destruction too?

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

Anyone who reads the 2000 "Rebuilding America's Defenses" by "The Project For The New American Century" think tank can clearly see how it was the precursor for the false flag 9/11 "attacks" and the subsequent "War on Terror" wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Deja Vu all over again.

Shameful's picture

Yes CD but asking the Average American to read is like asking them to build a rocket to Mars, you will just get a confused look in response.  Now a 2 minute video clip, that is even about their attention span, and still they won't be able to grasp it.

Haven't heard that name (PNAC) in a while. Here's another - Paul Wolfowitz **shudder**

^^ One of the funniest sketches ever.


On a side note fuck I'd rather bomb Iran than suck their cocks for the next 30 years.

CommunityStandard's picture

Doing neither is also an option.

To me, -19 and +1 means that the +1 probably matters more, such is the problem with democracy, US imperialism has done a lot more good than any of you living comfortable lives as a result of it acknowledge.

Jack Burton's picture

Precious, Yes I agree it is sedition and treason. But it is also a "War Crime" under international law. But of course the Iraq invasion also met that standard and nothing is done.

Be clear, this is Israel speaking. Now, of course that makes me anti semite, but, that doesn't change the reality that Israel is controlling too much American Mide East foreign policy. They want the USA to attack Iran so bad they can taste it!

And of course, this loud mouthed prick in a suit should be enlisting in a combat arm like the US Marines if he is so UP for war. Bloody coward, he will sit home in luxury and use honest patriotic young Americans to do his bidding.

What he suggests in his speech is a fabricated war and this is an international War Crime, plain and simple.

war crime? he is more likely to be nominated for the nobel peace prize.

So if some us were to get together, shoot him, and then plant a gun on him to claim self-defense, would we go to prison?

Dalago's picture

Why don't they fight their own fucking fights!  A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm. This think tank EXPLICITLY details hows a war with Iraq, Iran and Syria are for Israeli interests ONLY at the expense of American time, money and lives.


Fuck you Neocons!  The American's say NO!

Troll Magnet's picture

but the Jews say YES and that's all that matters.

Remember the USS Liberty!!

er-wait. Don't remember that.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

And that's the point....right?

As long as "they" can write (and more importantly rewrite) the history books, each new generation schooled by these textbooks will tend to believe that the printed lies are the truth.

While everyone remembers the famous quote about not caring about who votes but who counts the votes, the same thing applies to the textbooks. I care not about actual events and facts, but about who writes the history books about them.

Neocons=bolsheviks. Just that simple. Check about guy called Leo Strauss.
You merikans are afraid of socialism, but actually you are ruled by pure evil, who did all the atrocities of komunism in Russia and elsewhere. You are red.

Shock - I hope the USA realises that all out war with Iran will be like nothing they've experienced since Vietnam. Iraq and Afghanistan have been tragic enough - but Iran will make those two countries look like pre fight sparring..

Rich man sending poor mens sons to war - if only they had to send they're own sons.....
