Following Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Condoleezza Rice’s visit with the Bilderberg Group this past weekend in Chantilly, during which they urged European globalists to support an attack on Iran, the EU and the US today threatened Iran with further sanctions.
Despite the fact that most Europeans at the Bilderberg conference expressed their opposition to a military strike, war drums are beating louder today after the combined US and EU threat, in addition to revelations that Israel has set up a special unit within its air force to manage an air strike on Iran.
"The EU and the US have threatened Iran with further sanctions unless it verifiably suspends nuclear enrichment," reports the BBC.
"The measures were announced after US President George W Bush held talks in Slovenia, during what is expected to be his last official tour of Europe."
As we reported earlier, Rice and Gates attempted to rally support for an attack on Iran at Bilderberg in the same way the a consensus was built for an attack on Iraq during the 2002 Bilderberg conference.
In response to heated rhetoric about a potential attack on Iran, a "tripartisan" group has formed in an attempt to prevent military action which includes Libertarian nominee for president, Robert Barr, as well as several members of Congress, including Reps. Keith Ellison of Minnesota and Barbara Lee of California, both Democrats, and Rep. Ron Paul.
"The current rumor here in Washington is that Bush will attack after the November elections so it won’t hurt the Republican nominee politically. Many around him say he feels he has to do something before he leaves office," a campaign organizer, Carah Ong of the Center for Arms Control and Nonproliferation, said. "Part of this is to raise the fact that a military attack is likely and it needs to be prevented."
Israel has been pushing hard for a US-led attack and it was reported today that an ‘Iran Command’ within its air force has been set up as part of preparations for a possible war against Iran.
"The command’s operations are aimed at improving coordination among Israeli ballistic missiles and air and missile brigades which deploy the Arrow and Patriot missile systems," according to Press TV.
