BP has extensive trade links with Iran. In Britain’s North Sea he it has a 50% partnership with Iran, also in Azerbajain a partnership with Iran, also BP has partnerships in Russia and Libya. While no-one forsaw such an environmental catastrophe, the aim from the beginning was to break-up BP and sell it off. All of the circumstantial evidence supports this hypothesis. Apart from circumstantial evidence – we are only getting what is Government assisted and sanctioned news.
Halliburton has just announced an 83% rise in this quarters profits – lucky it is registered in Dubai.
The Iranian threat is generated as a way of keeping us from examining our domestic political situations, particularly inside Palestine and also wherever we live.
Iran has a growing list of allies, and a growing inventory of ballistic missiles which can hit Israel’s Nuclear facilities and any shipping in the Gulf.
To illustrate library footage from the Islamic revolution, and the Cold War is used, as well as military exersizes. It is only the Old Guard that is upset that the Islamic Revolution took away “their” oil.
BP: The Anglo-Persian Oil Company (APOC) was founded in 1908 following the discovery of a large oil field in Masjed Soleiman, Iran. It was the first company to extract oil from the Middle East. In 1935 APOC was renamed the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC) and in 1954 became the British Petroleum Company (BP), one of the antecedents of the modern BP Plc.
It might be a statement on Israel sending Nuclear weaponised submarines to the Gulf. And an obligatory show of support for Turkey.
But what is happening in Egypt? Egypt has opened the Rafah crossing to Gaza permanently, possibly because of Israeli and US pressure, also the Iranian aid is due to pass through Egypt to Gaza. Iran and Egypt have had frosty relations. Is that now changing?

Iranian aid ships to set sail for GazaMon, 07 Jun 2010 06:20:58 GMT
Two Iranian aid ships carrying humanitarian relief and medical supplies for the people of Gaza will set sail for the coastal sliver in the upcoming days.
Iran’s Red Crescent announced Monday that the cargo will include food, medicine and appliances and it will be accompanied by a group of Iranian doctors and relief workers.
“The aid consists of food and medical supplies, which will be transported into Gaza via the Rafah border in Egypt before the week is through,” the country’s Red Crescent Director Abdolraoof Adibzadeh said.
The Rafah border crossing is the only escape route from Gaza that does not lead to Israel.
Why does the article mention Rafah? Are the ships to be used by way of Egypt?
Report: Two Iranian ships to sail to Gaza

Iranian aid ships are due to set sail to Gaza by the end of the week, according to a report in the Sunday Times.

Perhaps Iran feels duty bound to support its growing alliance with Turkey, perhaps Iran senses Israel’s weakness, and Israel’s inability to have anything like a coherent plan. Israel is after all, only geared up for “punishhment” as policy.
There are also reports that Lebanon is planning to send ships within a couple of weeks.
It seems Isreal can continue to oppress, provoke and ethnically cleanse the Palestinians, any opposition can be dealt with, even from outside Israel. Even if all the world chose to economically boycott Israel, it would not interfere in the fierce nationalism, anyway busting sanctions is as old as humanity.
But there is increasing talk of a war with Lebanon and or Syria and Iran. Such is the holistic mind, the drive for hegemony knows no limits. And all empires overeach.
There is no way Israel can withstand a “real” war. It would quickly resort to using Nuclear weapons. War crimes have anyway been the hallmark of the Zionists and their NeoCon allies.
Probably the World will react in an active way, and turn against Jews and Neocons in general. Israel would genuinely be seen as a menace to humanity. Once the Bankers are under attack the entire mercantile fiat money debt driven society would be under attack. No more AIPAC, no more lobbies, no more holocaust movies, probably something autocratic will appear, but it won’t be Jewish. Israel will have ended the Jewish century.
There is an awesome Israeli media frenzy against Israel’s Foreign Minister (Time to go, Lieberman , and Haaretz) the avowed racist, regardless of the reasons given, one wonders what the real truth is. He would happily use Nuclear weapons.
The Israelis have spent the last ten years miscalculating, underestimating their enemies and overestimating themselves. Maybe its going to be a hot summer.
That was a war council in Damascus

The three-party meeting that took place in Damascus on Friday gathering the Syrian president Bashar al Assad, the Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the Hizbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah was a war council to devise counterattack plans and assign tasks in the event of an Israeli offensive on one or all parties, wrote Abdelbari Atwan, the editor-in-chief of the pan-Arab newspaper Al Quds al Arabi.
“The timing of the meeting, the way it was undertaken and the ensuing press conference that was held at its conclusion, all point to a strategic coalition being reinforced. This is the build-up of a new front that will spearhead the confrontation with the US-Israeli alliance and whichever Arab countries that may, expressly or implicitly, be affiliated with it.”
The Iranian president said he expects war to break out somewhere between spring and summer of this year. Meanwhile, the Hizbollah chief vowed to strike the Israeli capital, its airports and power stations if Israel dared to attack Beirut’s critical infrastructure.
“Indeed, we are being exposed to a new discourse here, an unprecedented sense of self-confidence and an unheard-of preparedness for retaliation.”
