Whether it’s domestic Ahwazi rebels or Western black-ops, something seems to be going on within the country of Iran. DebkaFile reports that Reza Baruni, the father of the Iranian military’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicle program has been assassinated in his home:
Reza Baruni, the father of Iran’s military UAV program, died in a mighty explosion that destroyed his closely secured villa, debkafile’s military and intelligence sources reveal. He lived in the high-scale neighborhood secluded for high Iranian officials in the southern town of Ahwaz in oil-rich Khuzestan.
Very few people in the country outside the top leaders and air force knew about his job and so his death was not generally appreciated as fatally stalling Iran’s military drone program for many years.
The official version produced the old standby of an exploding gas canister as the cause of the blast. However, DEBKA-Net-Weekly’s intelligence source report that bombs were planted in at least three corners of the building and expertly rigged to explode simultaneously and bring the ceilings crashing down on its occupants.
This certainly doesn’t sound like the work of untrained urban rebels.
Though in isolation, this particular story itself isn’t necessarily an indicator that Western spy operations are active in Iran, combined with the recent news of a possible assassination attempt on the life of Iranian President Ahmadinejad inquiring minds are considering that expanded military action against Iran may be very close.
Israel will not allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons, period. The closer Iran gets to the possession and deployment of a nuclear device, the closer Iran gets to a First Strike by Israel. This will not be a surgical strike of one suspected reactor like those that have taken place in Iraq under Saddam, or most recently in Syria. This will be an overwhelming first strike that will reduce Iran’s nuclear facilities and a majority of its military facilities to rubble. It cannot be less than that and be successful and the world powers know it. So what is the sound made by an immovable object when it is struck by an irresistible force?
Once an attack is launched by Israel, Iran will counter with a strike atÂ US interests in the Persian Gulf. The US will respond and finish the job that Israel started. Iran may have a secret treaty with North Korea to enter the war they know is coming.Â Treaty or not, North Korea may sit this one out. We all know that North Korea leadership is insane, but is it suicidal?Â If it enters the war it will ultimately be to their chagrin, but Seoul will be decimated in a matter of minutes as the North Koreans have 10,00 long range artillery pieces trained on that city. North Korea will move to invade South Korea once again, gobble as much territory as possible, and seek a “truce” to consolidate their gains. This time, look for them to skirt the DMZ and make amphibious assaults.
For many, the justifications for attacking Iran are eerily similar to those used to invade Iraq. Whether the American people have the stomach for another engagement in the middle east theater is not an issue for the powers that be. An expansion of the war, at this point, seems to be inevitable, regardless of the reasons behind it.
And this time it will not be as easy as driving tanks straight to Baghdad in under 24 hours. The Iranians will respond with force, and we also have the potential for North Korea to take advantage of strained US forces in the middle east by launching a pre-emptive attack against South Korea. Finally, let’s not forget Russia and China, whose interests, in our view, are nowhere close to the interest of the United States. The oil in Iran and the mineral rich mountains of Afghanistan are reason enough for the Russians and Chinese to support the enemies of their enemy.
Though some may argue that Russian and Chinese involvement could escalate a middle east conflict into a World War and thus those countries will just let us do what we want, we suggest that these countries would be more than willing to scorch and burn the planet and kill millions to achieve and maintain regional control (Incidentally, it seems the U.S. would be willing to do the same). Additionally, we should not be so naive as to believe that somehow the U.S., Russia and China are partners and friends.
This is about power and control. The leaders of all countries involved want to protect what they deem to be their national security and sovereign rights, so war, on a global scale, is most certainly a possibility.
When Hitler invaded and annexed Poland and Czechoslovakia in the 1930’s, did anyone think that those conflicts would eventually spread into war that would encompass almost every country on earth?
