CAN VANUNU TIE ISRAEL TO ROGUE NUKES?
TWO IMAGINARY NUCLEAR PROGRAMS, ONE CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY
By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor
Former President George W. Bush planned to invade Iran in 2007, even though America’s military was exhausted and overstretched by two unsuccessful wars. His own popularity, at a real 8%, was the reason, and the economic collapse that he was trying to push back until he left office. He believed a war would have saved his presidency, buried the $3 trillion dollars stolen by his friends and given him a legacy to be proud of, even if every family in America suffered.
Bush brazenly admits pretty much exactly these things in his ghost written autobiography, an incoherent rant, that rambles between blithering and megalomaniac delusion . The only thing that stopped this disaster was the National Intelligence Assessment, (NIE) that proved categorically, that Iran had no nuclear weapons program whatsoever. Even then, Bush tried to hide this report and demanded that falsified intelligence be created as he had done for 9/11, Afghanistan and Iraq. However, as a lame duck and failed president, nobody listened.
Integrity won out over insanity, greed and corruption this time. It wouldn’t last.
THREE YEARS LATER, NEW PRESIDENT, MORE OF THE SAME
Talk of war helps everyone: It takes focus off the fact that both Russia and China dropped the dollar as a trade currency today. Pushing that out of the news is important as it is real news. Real news points fingers at real problems. Instead, everyone is having fun with North Korea and Iran but 90% of the abuse isn’t toward the countries themselves. No, its against the English language.
Joseph Schuman of “AOL News” call the centrifuges in North Korea “ultra-modern.” Do they have fins? Are the deco? Is there a post impressionist aspect about them? We also read the glowing description, “astonishingly modern.” Did Picasso design them? Is there a touch of Matisse?
GAZA WALL, PALESTINIAN GHETTO OR "NUKE BARRIER?"
More words are bandied about, “potential” and vague reference to, perhaps another facility, with even more “ultra-modern” or, perhaps “spectacular” or even “fabulous” centrifuges. Schuman even describes them in the most fearful terminology of all, as resembling those from “Iran.”
All of the talk about uranium enrichment and “weapons grade” is purposefully vague. The most dangerous possible materials either nation is capable of producing would be unable to duplicate the nuclear carnage America has wrought on Iraq and Afghanistan. Oh, you don’t know that, someone told you that DU, Depleted Uranium, another abuse of language, is harmless?
Worse yet, Depleted Uranium, which is “partially” depleted like being “partially” dead or “partially” pregnant, is one of dozens of radioactive compounds used in every American weapon system from penetrator rounds for the ancient M-2 .50 cal. machinegun to the bombs we drop every hour, many carrying “potentially” lethal doses of “murderous” uranium oxide.
In reality, there is no real danger from Iran using its “depleted uranium” as it has promised to turn over all its dangerous waste to Brazil. Radiation is a death-dealing problem unless, of course, you are at an American airport or living in Fallujah, where radiation levels from “harmless” American weapons are now 38 times those of Hiroshima after the 1945 nuclear attack.
Isn’t language fun?
THE STRANGE CASE OF NORTH KOREA
North Korea is backward and dirt-poor. South Korea has an economy 300 times larger, if you don’t get that number correctly, picture one car in a restaurant parking lot and 300 cars in another. One lot says long lines and great food, the other….food poisoning and no staff.
That’s North Korea, “food poisoning and no staff.” We could carve a more dangerous “evildoer” out of a banana.
They also have no money, no exports, no foreign currency, no economy, no technology to export, no money to buy technology but they have missiles, fancy new German built submarines and, supposedly have exploded two nuclear weapons so far, two vastly different weapons, two extremely strange weapons but certainly not two “ultra-modern” nuclear weapons. If you hadn’t wondered where North Korea “found” two nuclear weapons, perhaps it’s time for you to start.
Back in 2006, North Korea created a nuclear “fizzler.” This is an explosion that has a nuclear signature but no fission or fusion reaction has occurred, no “chain reaction” like with a nuclear weapon. Even stranger, the explosion itself, actually thousands of tons of ammonium nitrate fertilizer, enough to stimulate food production in North Korea and end their eternal famine. Instead, North Korea put a plutonium “pit” from an unserviced and aged hydrogen bomb on a ship load of fertilizer and blew the whole thing up.
The United States had “misplaced” 3 or more hydrogen bombs back in 1991 off the coast of Somalia, weapons that were recovered by arms dealers that were part of a South African, Rhodesian, Israeli nexus that helped fuel, not only “Iran/Contra” but armed both sides of the Iraq/Iran war. Anyone worried about “suitcase nukes” needn’t bother. These weren’t 40 ton mini-nukes but rather 200,000 ton two stage thermonuclear weapons. The B-52 that crashed attempting an emergency landing at Diego Garcia had at least 3 of these and maybe 8.
Attempts to find these weapons sent American troops into Somalia and across East Africa. These operations were top secret, some were under cover of counter-terrorism tied to Al Qaeda, in fact, Al Qaeda was very likely invented for this reason.
For those of you who don’t know, a hydrogen bomb has a Plutonium “pit,” small in size that is stimulated by a Uranium 235 “sparkplug,” essentially two separate weapons that, when used together, produce a fusion reaction, many times larger than that of a simply atomic bomb. Oh, I forgot, there is a canister of tritium gas that helps fuel the reaction, an extremely rare gas that needs to be replaced often. Old hydrogen bombs don’t work.
Thus, someone who bought such a weapon somewhere would need to have it serviced by a super-power or buy a “trigger.” During the 1990s, the CIA led by Valerie Plame, and aided by Pakistan’s A.Q. Khan, offered such “triggers” for sale in order to locate and recover these missing weapons.
You now know a big secret. You also know that, if one of these weapons harms someone, former Vice President Dick Cheney, the man who undermined this vital CIA mission, is responsible, not “Scooter” Libby, the “fall guy.” With all the leaks around, you might wonder how all this was kept out of the papers? Who owns “the papers?” Who owns the news?
The signature of the Plutonium was odd. The cover story is that North Korea got Plutonium, not by producing it, but “found” it inside centrifuges they bought from Pakistan. This is the roughly equivalent of finding enough spare change under the cushions of your couch to buy a new Ferrari.
North Korea does not have the technology to create, mold or machine Plutonium, almost no one has. Breeder reactors create Plutonium but it is impossible to machine or mold without using special alloys which, of course, are traceable during any nuclear explosion. North Korea has had two “nuclear” explosions and both have been traced.
Not one ounce of “North Korean” material was ever involved.
The 2006 explosion did have a nuclear signature, a North Korean explosion but an American nuclear signature. That there wasn’t something worse, an implosion-based explosion or, worse, a thermonuclear device demonstrates a partially successful CIA operation with Pakistan’s A.Q. Khan and Valerie Plame to thank, heroes the Bush administration tried to hound to death. Why?
THEN A REAL NUKE WENT OFF IN NORTH KOREA, DID THEY FORGET THE RECIPE?
Then it happened, or did it? North Korea built a nuclear weapon and exploded it, an 18.2 kiloton “Hiroshima” type “gun” weapon they built themselves? This was May 25, 2009 when a country incapable of enriching uranium to “weapons grade” exploded the impossible nuke, or did they?
Yes, there was an explosion, North Korea theoretically became a nuclear state but, funny thing, the world never treated them as such. Why is that? What was the secret? Why was this so quickly forgotten?
The answer is simple, North Korea bought a nuclear weapon, one identical to one exploded in 1979 by Israel and South Africa, one with a history. Identifying the weapon was easy, the size and design said “Arms Core” and “Pelandaba.” The technology was American, the designers and builders Israeli but the uranium signature was South African.
South Africa built 10, no, not the 6 spoken of, but 10 nuclear weapons. The rogue regime in South Africa was aided by Israel in building nuclear weapons, an arrangement that begun in 1975, one violating every international law, perhaps the single most serious crime of its type in our century. South Africa had used germ warfare in Africa, chemical weapons, spread anthrax, plague, small pox and now, with the help of Israel, had nuclear weapons.
But, South Africa was collapsing and was going to be forced to release Nelson Mandela from prison and turn the government over to him. They weren’t going to give Mandela 10 nuclear weapons, though. Britain and the United Nations were approached to dismantle the program in 1990. Specialized equipment was designed to hold the weapons in 20 foot containers and the 9 remaining weapons, after one was tested on September 22, 1979, were to be shipped to the United States to be dismantled. 6 came to America. 3 were sidetracked by Margaret Thatcher in 1991, purchased for 55 million pounds and shipped to Oman to be kept as “blackmail” to frighten Saddam, or so it was explained. In reality, Britain hired the same arms dealers that were responsible for Iran/Contra to move the weapons.
Dr. David Kelly, once considered a suicide, now known to be a murder victim, oversaw the project. The bombs were stolen, Kelly knew and kept his mouth shut, for awhile at least, and then threatened to go public, not just about the bombs but about a 17. million-pound “kickback” (backhander) paid by the bomb thieves to certain prominent British politicians. Kelly was murdered, “they” tried to cover it up and now someone in Britain is going to jail over it, probably a “patsy.”
One of these weapons exploded in North Korea, an Israeli-built nuclear weapon. It passed through the hands of South African and Saudi arms merchants, one notorious Rhodesian and, we are told, into the open arms of those who built the weapons originally, the bomb designers from Dimona. Two of these bombs remain, “out there.”
The scary part, of course, is that these weapons are “unattributed.” Whoever controls them, and that is Israel according to reliable sources, is now capable of much “evil doing” with these weapons:
* One could be sold to a nation such as Iran or, as we have learned, North Korea, in order to foster international instability and peddle arms to both sides. Today, Israel is one of America’s largest arms suppliers and the not-so-secret supplier for all armaments North Korea currently has in its arsenal, from American cluster bombs to German-built submarines. Israel’s primary business has always been selling weapons to rogue nations and North Korea is now customer #1.
* With “secret” missing nuclear weapons, Israeli intelligence can tell America:
1. Saddam has them and is “prepared to use them in 45 minutes” or ship them to Syria “by ambulance.” Israel told the Bush administration both stories. They believed the “Saddam” story but rejected the “ambulance” tale. 5000 Americans died learning that Israel lied.
2. Iran has them and has put them in shipping containers for a false-flag attack on the United States. Israel has informed the United States of exactly this.
3. These weapons were shipped to Syria then to Lebanon where they were kept in a hospital X-ray room and that Hizbollah is planning to move them to Gaza where they can be smuggled by tunnels into Israel and used against the port of Haifa. America would be forced to send in the Army Corps of Engineers to build a wall around Gaza and to support Israeli military incursions as being justified as searches for these weapons that Israel has had all along, one of which Israel sold to North Korea.
* One of these weapons could mysteriously explode in an American city unless Israel, not only received the cash payoffs it normally gets but billions of dollars of munitions, shipped to Israel by the Pentagon, which Israel is allowed to sell, according to a highly illegal secret protocol, to, well, North Korea or anyone else. These shipments are made regularly and if the weapons stores were actually kept as the public is told, Israel would be a bomb warehouse from one end to the other.
America is now, officially, two camps. Fox News viewers, America’s most conservative and typically, most volatile “news junkies” are now being told that the 9/11 investigation was a coverup and the Building 7 demolition is proof of a massive conspiracy. For America’s #1 news source to go this far, not on one show but two of their top-rated journalists, Judge Napolitano and Geraldo Rivera, has been a serious blow for all those who supported the Bush administration and believed in the “war on terror.”
No other network, no newspaper is touching this story, this “third rail” which debunks two wars, debunks “Osama bin Laden” and makes the case for America being a nation of dupes. It doesn’t just stop at America. Most of the world got “sucked in” on 9/11, buying in on and even that now has gone from historical milestone as a disaster to the greatest scam in world history.
Bush admissions, though it is doubtful he understands the nature of such admissions and the criminal implications, over Iran and his willingness to send Americans to a hopeless war for his personal aggrandizement are only part of a pattern of which 9/11 itself was a part. If, as Fox News claims, Building 7 was a controlled demolition, then all of 9/11 was staged. Any other assumption is insane. The only questions are whether to leap to blaming Israel as so many are willing or to see Bush himself as a prime mover. Neither choice is likely to be promoted by either a government in bed with the Israel lobby, AIPAC, or still led by those who are likely to be prosecuted.
THE NUCLEAR SHAM
The media has started in, on Iran and North Korea. Again, Iran is “5 minutes away from being a nuclear power” and North Korea is ready to invade the South, armies on the move, donkeys fueled up, starving troops armed to the teeth.
Both nations, friendless, easy targets for American military technology, easy targets for the carefully orchestrated world press, serve one real purpose, to deflect attention from the thieves, the torturers, the drug barons, the ethnic cleansing in Gaza, from a dozen stories, especially from the ticking time bomb of 9/11.
With the world coming down around America, Afghanistan a hopeless quagmire, even by “Vietnam” standards, the dollar in free fall, AIPAC spying openly revealed in civil proceedings and Americans, by the millions, abandoning traditional news media, the “nuclear option,” an attack on an American city by, well, Americans themselves, with or without Israel, becomes more likely.
The mechanisms are there, spy organizations, controlled press, a quick and dirty “whitewash” investigation such as with 9/11 “in the can.”
“Black ops” and intelligence groups, now little more than criminal fronts, psychopaths, misfits and degenerates of every kind, exist by the dozen, funded with billions in taxpayer revenue, defense, intelligence and, of course, the flood of drug money pouring in from Afghanistan.
What is believed by those Americans that other Americans should revile and fear? It is believed that the only way of “moving forward” is the extreme path, totalitarianism, more government, fewer rights, gun seizures and, perhaps even those FEMA camps that “internet nutcases” and “conspiracy theory” types talk about.
The remainder of the Bush/Cheney gang are slowly becoming hunted animals. They see it even if many Americans don’t. Hunted animals are capable of anything.
