UK ex-army chief criticises U.S. over Iraq

The head of the army during the Iraq invasion has launched a scathing attack on U.S. post-war policy, The Daily Telegraph reported on Saturday, underlining growing transatlantic strains over Iraq.

General Sir Mike Jackson, a now retired former chief of the general staff, said the approach taken by former U.S. Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was "intellectually bankrupt" and
described his comment that U.S. forces "don't do nation-building" as "nonsensical", the paper said.

Pentagon 'three-day blitz' plan for Iran

The Pentagon has drawn up plans for massive airstrikes against 1,200 targets in Iran, designed to annihilate the Iranians’ military capability in three days, according to a national security expert.

Alexis Debat, director of terrorism and national security at the Nixon Center, said last week that US military planners were not preparing for "pinprick strikes" against Iran’s nuclear facilities.

"They’re about taking out the entire Iranian military," he said.

  1. Once people start "manifesting destiny", who is always best at "manifesting"; the weak, or the strong?

    People who don't fully understand manifestation should not be screwing around with what they don't fully understand.

    Who does understand manifestation and how it works? Why only the Children of the Goddess, of course.

    Hence, if you read the Ragnarök story, all the gods die, except Baldir, the living sun-god, and hey, there is currently only one living sun-god, and he lives in North Korea. Some find him mysterious, but I fully understand where he is coming from.
