Want to stop the Occupy Movement in its tracts?

UPDATE:  See below.  Is Attack On Iran Underway?

Want to stop the Occupy Movement in its tracts?  Start a war.  That's right!  Cherry pick the data, whip it into a mainstream media froth and let Israel take the lead in bombing Iran.  We've got their back along with some winks and nods from China and Russia.  I kid you not, this plan was openly discussed and planned in congressional meetings almost two years ago.  Things got delayed (perhaps due the the Arab Spring), but now America is experiencing a winter of discontent, so the plans are moving forward.

Prepping Americans for an Iran War

December 3, 2011
As the American/Israeli war drums beat more loudly over Iran, the U.S. public is being told that this time the warnings about nuclear weapons are right, that no one should listen to Iranian denials, that ratcheting up tensions toward war is the only way. But William Blum recalls the similar false certainty about Iraq.
By William Blum
There’s no letup, is there? The preparation of the American mind, the world mind, for the next gala performance of D&D — Death and Destruction. The Bunker Buster bombs are now 30,000 pounds each one, six times as heavy as the previous delightful model..
But the Masters of War still want to be loved; they need for you to believe them when they say they have no choice, that Iran is the latest threat to life as we know it, no time to waste.
The preparation of minds was just as fervent before the invasion of Iraq in March 2003. And when it turned out that Iraq did not have any kind of arsenal of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) … well, our power elite found other justifications for the invasion, and didn’t look back. Some berated Iraq: “Why didn’t they tell us that? Did they want us to bomb them?  Read more at Consortium News

All eyes on Israel after second Iranian blast

CLOUDS of smoke billowed above the city of Isfahan - evidence that the latest strike against Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program had hit its target.

The second blast in as many weeks at an atomic or missile facility has sparked Iranian denials and claims of accidents, but a new phase in efforts to destroy its nuclear ambitions is said to be under way.
"Instead of overt action you have covert action. This is the new battlefront -- this is a new kind of war," an Israeli defence official said.
The Israeli Defence Minister, in a radio interview yesterday, did little to dampen speculation that it had a role in the blast at Isfahan, located in central Iran, and an explosion at a missile base west of Tehran.
Ehud Barak, acknowledging that Israel stood to benefit most from disruption to the nuclear program, said: "We are not happy to see the Iranians move ahead on this (program), so any delay, be it divine intervention or otherwise, is welcome."

The following is the only reference to this explosion I could find in searching the New York Times up to Dec. 4th.  It is buried in an article from November 28 titled "Iran Moves To Downgrade Its Relations with Britain 

 New York Times Article
Concern that Iran may be close to producing a nuclear weapon has grown since the release of the United Nations report, particularly in Israel, which considers Iran its most dangerous enemy. Iranian warnings to Israel against attempting a pre-emptive military strike on Iran’s nuclear installations have also escalated in recent weeks.

The heightened sensitivities to the possibility of such a strike were apparent on Monday when a few Iranian news agencies reported on a suspected explosion near the central city of Isfahan, where the Iranians process uranium. The accounts of a blast being heard in the city were skimpy and contradictory, but that did not stop the Israeli news media from leading their evening broadcasts with the news. It was also the top item on the Web site ofHaaretz, a major Israeli newspaper, with the headline “Report: Explosion rocks Iran city of Isfahan, home to key nuclear facility.”
