As you know, I've been following the war of nerves and words between Washington, Tel Aviv, and Tehran over Iran's nuclear program. Well, I found this article assessing Iran's nuclear program, courtesy of Iranian media in fact, reporting something that did not make big news in the Amerikan media:

US Gen. Dempsey: Iran rational actor, not after nukes

Well, we've been treated to all sorts of allegations regarding the Iranian regime, from plots against the Saudi ambassador, to warnings of Zbgnw Brzznsk that Israel might want to think twice before acting against Iran unilaterally, to plots of Iranian intelligence involving used car a salesman, and so on. Then there were the apparent rifts between President Obama and Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu. We may add to this the possibility that the decent assassinations of Iranian scientists may have been conducted by some western intelligence service or services (and there is even the idea floating around out there that the Iranians themselves have conducted these operations).

In to this mix we may now add Joint Chiefs chairman General Martin Dempsey.

"Speaking in a nationally televised interview with the CNN’s 'Fareed Zakaria GPS' show on Sunday, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey said, 'We are of the opinion that Iran is a rational actor.'

"Dempsey pointed out that US officials aren't convinced Iran has decided to build atomic armaments.

“'We also know, or we believe we know that Iran has not decided to make a nuclear weapon,' General Dempsey said.

"Elsewhere in his remarks, the top US general also described any Israeli attack on Iran as 'destabilizing.'

“'It’s not prudent at this point to decide to attack Iran,' General Dempsey said, adding that the US government is confident the Israelis 'understand our concerns.'

Indeed, one has to agree with the general, for as I have attempted to point out here in several blogs, assume Iran did acquire a nuclear weapons capability. To use it would make that nation a pariah and an outcast, and call forth an overwhelming retaliation from Israel (and probably us as well). While it makes sense that Iran  would want such a capability, its only value for that country would be in deterrence, not use.

But it is indeed questionable whether Iran has even that intention, and General Dempsey has confirmed it. But why now?

There are any number of ways to analyze why he would say such a thing. (1) it is part of the ongoing war of nerves, and a deliberate attempt to obfuscate our real intentions and keep the ayatollahs guessing, (2) it is not part of that ongoing war of nerves, but a real voice of dissent within the US' "deep political structure" (to borrow the conception of Peter Dale Scott), or (3) it is possibly yet another warning to Israel itself.

Whatever we make of General Dempsey's remarks, one thing is clear: the pressure against Iran will continue, but there are those within the power structure of the US that have serious political and military reservations about taking any action.

See you on the flip side.

    Maybe the Iranians have been ‘filled in’ on what happens to the fabric of space/time when you detonate a nuke? These people are not stupid, evil regime perhaps who dominate a cultured people, but not stupid.

    I think the Amerikans know they can’t let Iran become a shooting war-Russia, India and China have serious investments in the area.

    Or maybe these people really are that stupid…….

    Posturing, and very bad posturing at that.

    You know strangely enough I don’t think nuclear war is even in the cards for anybody. Remember the cold war? Between the US and the Russians! I guess we sort of had some type of divine intervention against the both of us! They told us they were not going to allow us to ruin this world. And they basically sabotaged our nuclear missiles on both sides of the ponds that separate us.

    Call it what you will for all those who don’t believe in UFO or alien technology somebody with a higher intelligence intervened and basically made our weapons useless against each other and put us all or both US and Soviet Union into a panic. This is according to one Command Sargent Major Bob Dean a very likeable spokesman on Project Camelot.

    And he also agrees with your exploded planet theory in one of your books.
    Cosmic Wars I think?

    General Martin Dempsey? Gosh we are all over the place aren’t we meaning us Dempsey’s! Ha :LOL! Not everyone is a screw up like me, where my only redeeming quality seems to be my connection as well to a higher power! He helps keep me stable or more level headed and knows I do my best work from behind the scenes in what would be considered in our culture a subservient role.

    Jesus preferred to send his people realm apostles out in two’s for a good reason one to speak the other in the background to worship or help stir up the anointing from a distance. As in one can put 1000 to flight 2 can put 10,000! This can relate to crowd size and also the level of power of the anointed people involved. As in two apostles in the same place could be a bit over kill in the power and presence of God in the same gathering. In most of the smaller churches of our day or time. Though some are getting bigger and or occasionally use large public facilities like stadiums or arena’s for prayer meetings and conferences.

    For those who wish to know my primary focus is the baptism in the Holy Spirit and growth through fasting and praying the lords prayer. So you can as well join the Journey to the “secret book” of The Book Of The Upper Room! Where your very own future revelations from the lord are kept and or shared with people of like mind or experience.

    Yes and recently I have lost my job and about to lose my home! The job part was a bit unexpected! Maybe a good time to fast and pray some more and maybe not! As in like I have said before for what we do in secret! God will reward us openly! Through more revelations and his ever increasing power and presence or faith!

    I have shared with you the gospel I know through the Holy Spirit and you are right there is no book like I have said in this currant book the bible. It is not availible to those of you who “walk by sight and not by faith” which is the vast majority of people in churches across the country and around the world.

    We are considered by you upwardly mobile people as off scouring or gutter snipes or any other crude thing you can label us with! And I drink smoke and chew and hang with the likes of others that do to. So it is doubtful you will see me as a fixture in any denominational church in the country! Especially the more visible televised ones in the country.

    So if I were to preach I know my main sermon would always be fairly short! What do you have that you have not received? For if you have received him why do you boast as having nothing? I believe this is through the apostle Paul! And he could preach this same message today in practically every church in America!

    Where is the presence of God in or on you when you worship the lord he was questioning, saying and or wondering!! He was there to fill in what they were missing which was the “Baptism of the Holy Spirit”! You see there was little or no bible fasting and prayer was the “only link” at that time! And you could be anybody or nobody illiterate or not (mostly for the sake of women)or even in prison.

    And for those who wonder why or what is holding up our economy from total collapse and surrounded by all this corporate greed and corruption! Very simply maybe because I am here and we need more of me but all over the country because rules and books and laws on paper just don’t work!

    And I only have some what limited area wise power and the prosperity the bible speaks about is available to everybody not just a few. You after a while an anointed farmer could understand it is really about plentiful amounts of fresh water. Because we all need it to survive! And in fact could be using it to clean power cars, trucks, tractors and transportation to varying degree’s.

    Can you imagine that? Vehicles that put out cleaner air verses CO? The last guy they put in prison or an asylum! Because h\is idea actually worked! Check out GEET and they benefit in fuel savings and cleaner air as well, Or check out Got any friends who are farmers (I know I do)have them check these out these are easy installs pretty much plug and play for any kind of diesel and or some gas engines. This stuff is not easy to find I had a heck of a time finding them even on the net some are on youtube.

    They add power, fuel efficiency10-30%, and cleaner air! These days they will pay for themselves rather quickly. Diesel and gas around $4.00/gallon. HHO dry cell s possible but it is much more difficult to add to your vehicle and use.

    And that MYT engine that we will never see in this country would have probably been the perfect engine design for using HHO and starting a new industrial revolution. In this country just as the guy or inventer said!

    Only about the size of a average alternator running your whole car? Go figure I imagine he is being fitted right now for his new straight jacket by the powers that be whether the government or the oil industry! Except that the Soviet Union has one in a car already for sale and in operation!

    How about water projects “big ones” from places with too much water to drought stricken area’s all over the country. I know in my home state of ND we have had several bumper crops of water they probably would have been happy to get rid of . But there was and is no infa-structure for cannals via ducts holding ponds pumps pipe etc to distribute water from places with too much to places that have shortages.

    Anybody see a huge public works program similar to our interstate system? For putting people to work for the good of the whole country? I had a vision or saw this years ago my guess is a divinely inspired dream or vision. So no it is not some crazy dream I Joe penniless can lay claim to..

    This is kind of old news.

    Your fellow guest on Rense, Mr Tim Rifat seems to think they’re after cobalt 60.

    Looking it up he seems to make a valid point, short half life, very radioactive, doesn’t need a nuclear device to detonate, easily transportable, doesn’t require massive quantatives, almost the perfect device to threaten a super power.

    • Jay on March 21, 2012 at 6:26 am

      Funny–not–now the information provided by this Rense guest comports with what the reichwingers in the US and what the Likud party want the world to believe.

      Still not getting this: The only reason Iran would want nuclear weapons, which have all sorts of difficulties, is to avoid invasion.
