War With Iran…The Ultimate October Surprise Before the Election
Australian media reporting today that some government officials believe Trump is preparing a military strike against Iran, and possibly within the next month.
Senior figures in the Turnbull Government have told the ABC they believe the United States is prepared to bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities, perhaps as early as next month, and that Australia is poised to help identify possible targets.
It comes amid intense sabre-rattling by US President Donald Trump and his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani
The ABC has been told Australian defence facilities would likely play a role in identifying targets in Iran, as would British intelligence agencies
This move would be the most blatant type of “wag the dog” misuse of the military, and according to Trump’s former biographer Tony Scwartz, any demonstrations or protests against this act or in relation to indictments of Trump’s family members could well be used as justification for declaring an insurrection was underway and invoking martial law.
The showdown between rule of law and oligarchic despotism is coming.
