      General Ivashov Calls For Emergency Session Of UN Security Council To
      Ward Off Looming US Aggression

      By Webster G. Tarpley
      WASHINGTON DC -- The long awaited US military attack on Iran is now
      on track for the first week of April, specifically for 4 AM on April 6,
      writes the well-known Russian journalist Andrei Uglanov in the Moscow
      weekly "Argumenty Nedeli." Uglanov cites Russian military experts close
      to the Russian General Staff for his account.
      The attack is slated to last for twelve hours, according to
      Uglanov, lasting from 4 AM until 4 PM local time. Friday is a holiday in
      Iran. In the course of the attack, code named Operation Bite, about 20
      targets are marked for bombing; the list includes uranium enrichment
      facilities, research centers, and laboratories.
      The first reactor at the Bushehr nuclear plant, where Russian
      engineers are working, is supposed to be spared from destruction. The US
      attack plan reportedly calls for the Iranian air defense system to be
      degraded, for numerous Iranian warships to be sunk in the Persian Gulf,
      and the for the most important headquarters of the Iranian armed forces
      to be wiped out.
      The attacks will be mounted from a number of bases, including the
      island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean. Diego Garcia is currently
      home to B-52 bombers equipped with standoff missiles. Also participating
      in the air strikes will be US naval aviation from aircraft carriers in
      the Persian Gulf, as well as from those of the Sixth Fleet in the
      Mediterranean. Additional cruise missiles will be
      fired from submarines in the Indian Ocean and off the coast of the
      Arabian peninsula. The goal is allegedly to set back Iran's nuclear
      program by several years, writes Uglanov, whose article was re-issued by
      RIA-Novosti in various languages, but apparently not English, several
      days ago. The story is the top item on numerous Italian and German
      blogs, but so far appears to have been ignored by US websites.
      Observers comment that this dispatch represents a high-level
      orchestrated leak from the Kremlin, in effect a war warning, which draws
      on the formidable resources of the Russian intelligence services, and
      which deserves to be taken with the utmost seriousness by pro-peace
      forces around the world.
      Asked by RIA-Novosti to comment on the Uglanov report, retired
      Colonel General Leonid Ivashov confirmed its essential features in a
      March 21 interview: "I have no doubt that there will be an operation, or
      more precisely a violent action against Iran." Ivashov, who has
      reportedly served at various times as an informal advisor to Putin, is
      currently the Vice President of the Moscow Academy for Geopolitical
      Ivashov attributed decisive importance to the decision of the
      Democratic leadership of the US House of Representatives to remove
      language from the just-passed Iraq supplemental military appropriations
      bill which would have demanded that Bush come to Congress before
      launching an attack on Iran. Ivashov pointed out that the language was
      eliminated under pressure from AIPAC, the lobbing group representing the
      Israeli extreme right, and of Israeli Foreign Minister Tsipi Livni.
      "We have drawn the unmistakable conclusion that this operation will
      take place," said Ivashov. In his opinion, the US planning does not
      include a land operation: " Most probably there will be no ground
      attack, but rather massive air attacks with the goal of annihilating
      Iran's capacity for military resistance, the centers of administration,
      the key economic assets, and quite possibly the Iranian political
      leadership, or at least part of it," he continued.
      Ivashov noted that it was not to be excluded that the Pentagon
      would use smaller tactical nuclear weapons against targets of the
      Iranian nuclear industry. These attacks could paralyze everyday life,
      create panic in the population, and generally produce an atmosphere of
      chaos and uncertainty all over Iran, Ivashov told RIA-Novosti. "This
      will unleash a struggle for power inside Iran, and then there will be a
      peace delegation sent in to install a pro-American government in
      Teheran," Ivashov continued. One of the US goals was, in his estimation,
      to burnish the image of the current Republican administration, who would
      now be able to boast that they had wiped out the Iranian nuclear
      Among the other outcomes, General Ivashov pointed to a partition of Iran
      along the same lines as Iraq, and a subsequent carving up of the Near
      and Middle East into smaller regions. "This concept worked well for them
      in the Balkans and will now be applied to the greater Middle East," he
      "Moscow must expert Russia's influence by demanding an emergency
      session of the United Nations Security Council to deal with the current
      preparations for an illegal use of force against Iran and the
      destruction of the basis of the United Nations Charter," said General
      Ivashov. "In this context Russia could cooperate with China, France and
      the non-permanent members of the Security Council. We need this kind of
      preventive action to ward off the use of force," he concluded.

      Citizen in Germany in 1940, Would you have been on the side of the
      German government or hope the German army would lose the war ?
      I hope Bush's army loses this war to Iran, Russia, China !
      What say you ?
