Money for Iran War, none for U.S. and U.K. suffering
Britain's and America's armed forces are reportedly stepping up their contingency planning for potential military action against Iran based upon the same kind of fabrications of "Weapons of Mass Destruction" that were used to launch the War against Iraq.
Meanwhile, both America and Britain continue to suffer from growing economic disparity. Elites from these societies indicate that they have no money for social programme. However, where are they getting the billions of dollars to fund their apparent appetite for new wars.
It was former U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower who in 1961 warned Americans against the development of a military-industrial complext that would in the future, threaten America itself.
The U.K. Ministry of Defence is reportedly cooperating with the US to fast-forward plans for targeted missile strikes at some key Iranian facilities. British officials say that if Washington presses ahead it will seek, and receive, UK military help for any mission, despite some deep reservations within the coalition government.
In anticipation of a potential attack, British military planners are examining where best to deploy Royal Navy ships and submarines equipped with Tomahawk cruise missiles over the coming months as part of what would be an air- and sea-launched campaign.
The British Guardian has spoken to a number of Whitehall and defence officials over recent weeks who said Iran was once again becoming the focus of diplomatic concern after the revolution in Libya.
The US president, Barack Obama, may embark on a new and provocative military venture before next November's US election to help galavanize public support for the new enemy of Iran, now than Osama Bin Laden can no longer be the focus of foreign policy.
