- WASHINGTON, DC --
Yesterday's extraordinary simultaneous ouster of the Secretary of the Air
Force and the Air Force chief of staff, followed by the naming of Trilateral
Commissioner and Carter administration veteran James Rodney Schlesinger
to purge USAF generals and colonels, dramatically documents the fact that
power in Washington DC is no long in the hands of the Bush-Cheney-neocon
clique, but has passed to the Brzezinski-Trilateral faction.
- Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced the firing of
Air Force Secretary Michael W. Wynne and Air Force Chief of Staff Gen.
T. Michael Moseley, citing the failure of the Air Force to maintain the
security of strategic nuclear forces, as shown in the infamous rogue B-52
incident of late August 2007, when a B-52 intercontinental strategic bomber
with six nuclear armed cruise missiles flew from North Dakota to Louisiana
totally outside of the purview of the USAF command control and communications
systems. Gates also mentioned that four high-tech electrical nosecone fuses
for Minuteman nuclear warheads were sent to Taiwan in place of helicopter
batteries, along with other failures.
- Gates is a leading member of the Principals' Committee,
an interagency group which now runs the US government from day to day with
scant reference to the discredited outgoing lame ducks Bush and Cheney,
who stay on mainly as figureheads. The Principals' Committee has been in
charge of the US government since no later than early May, around the time
of the Indiana and North Carolina primaries, when the controlled corporate
media began trumpeting that Obama was the winner of the Democratic nomination.
The Principals' Committee is made up of Pentagon boss Gates, Secretary
of State Rice, NSC director Hadley, Joint Chiefs of Staff head Mullen,
intelligence czar McConnell, along with a few others. These figures are
now marching to the tune of Trilateral Commission bigwigs like Zbigniew
Brzezinski, Joseph Nye, and the Rockefeller family. These are the same
forces who own and control the Wall Street Manchurian candidate Obama.
It is notable that the high- profile purge of the USAF came less than 48
hours after Obama had unilaterally proclaimed himself the Democratic presidential
- The rogue B-52 flew with six nuclear cruise missiles
from Minot AFB North Dakota to Barksdale AFB Louisiana last August 30.
Source reports published by Wayne Madsen suggest that the B-52 was stopped
by patriotic low-level USAF personnel. As the issue of whether to allow
the plane to fly on to the Middle East went up the chain of command and
expanded to involve the intelligence agencies, it transpired that the majority
of the government and the establishment did not want the plane to attack
targets in the Middle East. The scandal of the rogue B-52 broke on September
5, and a stand-down and nuclear census of the entire USAF soon followed.
According to all indications, the B-52 was under the extra-legal control
of the Cheney faction, which evidently planned to fly it to the Middle
East and quite possibly use one or more of the nuclear cruise missiles
in an attack on Iran and/or Syria, probably in cooperation or coordination
with the Israeli air attack on Syria which occurred on September 6. The
fact that the B-52 was blocked may have represented the last gasp of the
Bush-Cheney- neocon faction, and the beginning of the hegemony of a different
and far more dangerous group, namely the Brzezinski-Trilateral faction.
- The Gates purge indicates that the new Trilateral masters
of Washington DC do not trust the USAF generals who are so deeply compromised
with the Bush-Cheney-neocon faction. The USAF was up to its neck in 9/11,
and then in the rogue B-52 affair. The Trilaterals are accordingly driving
out the old rogues, and replacing them with new rogue generals of their
own, who are loyal to the insane Trilateral agenda. Brzezinski does not
want nuclear weapons wasted on Iran, which he intends to turn into an expendable
puppet or kamikaze pawn in his apocalyptic showdown with Russian and China.
This is what Obama's appeasement of Iran actually aims at: Iran as a US
asset to be played against Russia and China. Brzezinski wants to be in
control of those nukes, since he may soon need them for use against Russia
and China. Those who might celebrate the defeat of the Bush-Cheney-neocon
group must rather face the fact that the US has just jumped out of the
frying pan of conventional invasions and into the fire of looming thermonuclear
confrontations among the great powers. This is the real nature of the change
for which Obama is the public symbol.
- Obama's foreign policy will be dictated in every respect
by Trilateral co-founder Brzezinski. Obama is now supported and surrounded
by Trilateral members David Rockefeller, Jay Rockefeller, Joseph Nye, Paul
Adolph Volcker, Jimmy Carter, and many more. With James "Rodney the
Robot" Schlesinger now helping to purge the Pentagon, including its
associated intelligence agencies, the Trilateral grip on Washington DC
is tightening. Obama's choice of a vice president will be dictated by long-time
Trilateral stalwart Jim Johnson.
- The rogue B-52 incident was forecast by me in an essay
entitled "Cheney Determined to Strike in US with WMD This Summer,"
issued on July 21, 2007, and widely distributed on the internet and in
print form. This was followed by the Kennebunkport Warning, which was posted
online in the evening of August 26, 2007, less than 72 hours before the
rogue B-52 nuclear missiles were loaded. By September 3, the Kennebunkport
Warning was posted on 110,000 web sites worldwide. The precision and timeliness
of this warning represent an unprecedented intelligence achievement.
- But now, the danger of a US attack on Iran is very low.
Brzezinski's hit list is much more ambitious, and includes Sudan, Pakistan,
Burma, and China, all stepping stones to the final reckoning with Moscow.
The main possibility of an attack on Iran in the present situation comes
from disgruntled Israeli factions like the one around Netanyahu who are
aghast that they are being demoted from their previous role as the hub
of US strategy to the status of just another expendable pawn in Brzezinski's
lunatic plan for confrontation with Beijing and Moscow. The Israelis are
horrified by Obama, just as everyone in the world should be. The winning
faction of the US-UK establishment does not want the attack on Iran, and
the Israelis would be foolhardy to try it on their own. The threats today
from former IDF chief and Israeli Transport Minister Shaul Mofaz about
an Israeli solo attack on Iran because of the failure of economic sanctions
to stop nuclear development are indicative of deep discontent, but the
guess here is that they are a bluff. We will soon find out: if the Israelis
do not strike Iran in the next few weeks, they will have lost their chance
as the Trilaterals continue to consolidate their power.
