Ahmadinejad - Walking the Plank on Submarine Timetable
It seems until the radical Islamic virus is routed, foreign relations will no longer be straightforward, and that is most unfortunate for voting citizens of free republics. When was the last time that our own government educated us correctly about its true goals, much less the rationale for them? Was I wrong about the fence with Mexico never being built? (Most of you still believe so, yet it would be a monumental failure, waste precious tax revenue and degrade U.S. relations with Mexico). Why has our government not explained this to us? Why has our government ( in both Democrat and Republican administrations) continually encouraged illegal immigration by lax border enforcement?
Iran will not be struck militarily by the U.S. whether a nuclear weapons capability comes to exist or not. Readers will recall my prediction that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is being set up for a fateful airline disaster in the company of several of his foremost nuclear scientists. This outcome is merely contingent on a single travel opportunity which has yet to present itself. Even if Ahmadinejad is booted out of office (next paragraph), a fatal accident or sickness will permanently bar his re-election prospects.
Officially, of course, the U.S. State Department wishes Iranian voters would simply boot Mr. Ahmadinejad out of office and his fanatic puppet masters (clerics) with him. Again, the opportunity has not presented itself yet, although sentiments for a boot may finally be gaining some momentum.
Finally, there is a third-party, nuclear option. Suppose, just suppose, that an EMP nuke were exploded over Iran. Suddenly, the persistent madman is rendered a very unpopular head of the world's latest stone age country.
Who is the third party behind this plan? Not the U.S., U.K., Israel, Russia, China, France, etc. The world will be surprised by the strike, but in a world where governments explain so little, would an identity have to be revealed unambiguously? Unfortunately, no. Who will the candidates be? India, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. What would they possibly gain? Besides political stability (instant weakening of the Al Qaida threat) there is the matter of a vital energy pipeline. All three of the candidates would have very good, plausible deniability. Saudi does not have the technology, for starters. Might India and Pakistan collaborate?
What about the timing of an EMP strike on Iran? As Molten Eagle explained to readers in August, Iran will not be in possession of a missile-deployable nuke prior to Israel's taking delivery of its Strategically Assured Second-Strike (modified AIP) submarines under construction in Germany. The final delivery and required crew training dates are obviously well-planned to be timely, but it seems they are still secret (if I am wrong on this, please advise).
Sleep well, Mahmoud.
