    Does this mean War with Iran?


    In a blockbuster ruling, Federal Judge George Daniels in the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of New York issued an order stating that Iran and its Lebanese Shi’ite terror proxy, Hizballah, are jointly responsible together with al-Qa’eda for the attacks of September 11, 2001.

    The long-awaited ruling came in the cases of Havlish, et al. v. Islamic Republic of Iran, et al., and Bingham, et al. v. Islamic Republic of Iran, et al., lawsuits filed by families of 9/11 victims. The cases provided clear and compelling evidence that Iranian officials at the top levels of the Tehran regime played a key role in planning and facilitating the 9/11 attacks and, even more specifically, that they provided direct and material support to al-Qa’eda without which the attacks could not have taken place. This week, Judge Daniels agreed.

    Lead attorney for both cases, Thomas E. Mellon, Jr. of Doylestown, Pennsylvania of the law firm of Mellon Webster & Shelly, and Timothy Fleming of the Washington, D.C. office of Wiggins Childs Quinn & Pantazis, in Birmingham, Alabama headed a consortium of eight law firms across the United States and built a team of investigators and expert witnesses who collectively logged thousands of hours over the course of nine long years to compile the evidence. The team was doggedly committed, on behalf of the 9/11 victims, their family members, and the American people, to provide the full truth about Iran’s complicity in the horrific attacks of that day and to see Iran and Hizballah, as well as al-Qa’eda, held accountable for the devastation they caused.

    Gee I had no idea that some stories with serious foreign policy implications were going to come out right before Iowa, while Paul is building support in the polls. :rolleyes:

    The only thing that the media can use against him and you know damn well they're going to milk the shit out of it from here on out.

    It happened in 2008 before Iowa too when Bhutto was assassinated and McCain rose from the dead and took the nomination because he was viewed as the foreign policy guru.

    At the end of the day, war is all that's important to the establishment. Nothing will ever be cut from the budget in a serious way. The only thing that is guaranteed is more war.

    This could be what puts the Iran War proponents over the top. This is a huge ruling. It could very well be used as an excuse for War. Stay tuned.

    What do you do with this information?

    If I'm Mr. Obama, I have "my guys" look at what the Havlish team puts together. If it is found to be true, I think the US needs to stock up on 10 years worth of oil if Iraq was any indication. If you're talking military intervention, offer to Split the oil fields 50/50 with whoever joins us in going in and get at it. I favor isolationism and mysterious sinking of Iranian crude vessels myself. We have a bunch of subs we're not using.

    You've got to do something.

    Else, you invite further attacks.

    If it were true, it would mean we invaded the wrong country in 2003 -- assuming our motive for invading Iraq was national security... OH WAIT

    As correctly noted, not likely given we wasted blood and treasure the last ten years fighting the wrong two wars.

    It could mean War with Syria as well. Hezbollah has a very strong presence there. Syria makes up a big part of their funding. It may be War with Syria first.

    Iran is Shiite.

    al Qaeda is Sunni.
