Bush Makes Israel's "Samson Option" Threat Against Russia

On November 7, 2007 U.S. President George Bush said: "If you want to see World War Three, you know, a way to do that is to attack Israel with a nuclear weapon." Second time he's brought up WWIII in three weeks.
.
What was that madman ranting about this time? In case you haven't heard about it, it's called Israel's "Samson Option." The narrow definition that Israel supporters want us to believe is that Israel would merely nuke the country whose convention or nuclear attack did massive damage. It would nuke the heck out of it, but would only nuke that country.
.
However, the real story is doubtless more like the quotes below, threatening nuclear destruction of Arab and Muslim cities, or even the world. (Hint: if Israel nukes Russia, Russia nukes the U.S.)
.
From Seymour Hersh's best selling book "The Samson Option", quoting former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon: "We are much more important than (Americans) think. We can take the middle east with us whenever we go." And quoting a “former Israeli govt official” with “first hand knowledge of his government’s nuclear weapons program”: “We can still remember the smell of Auschwitz and Treblinka. Next time we’ll take all of you with us.”
.
Hersh's book details at length Israel's targeting of the Soviet Union; their spy Jonathan Pollard was particularly interested in stealing U.S. targeting information on its cities. Do they like Russia any more now that it is giving nuclear aid and long range missiles to Iran?
.
Two high profile Israel supporters - professors yet! - have written particularly chilling comments: Martin Van Creveld, a professor of military history at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem stated: "We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force. Let me quote General Moshe Dayan: ‘Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.’...We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under."
.
In 2002 the Los Angeles Times published an opinion piece by Louisiana State University professor David Perlmutter in which he wrote: "What would serve the Jew-hating world better in repayment for thousands of years of massacres but a Nuclear Winter. Or invite all those tut-tutting European statesmen and peace activists to join us in the ovens? For the first time in history, a people facing extermination while the world either cackles or looks away--unlike the Armenians, Tibetans, World War II European Jews or Rwandans--have the power to destroy the world. The ultimate justice?"
.
I'm no big fan of (fired professor) Ward Churchill, but that comment makes Churchill's "chickens coming home to roost" statement sound "pussy." (As in little kitty cat.)
.
Yeah, just like the Bush boy said, that's what the Samson Option is REALLY about - World War III.
.
I'm updating my SAMSON OPTION: ISRAELI THREATS AND BLACKMAIL page to put together a really good list of articles with complete cites to send out to hundreds of media people and thousands of activists, and it can be as point of view original research as I like, and no one can squash it. PHEW! (Check back in a week or so.)
.
Also, I've updated my IS NUCLEAR WAR INEVITABLE? main page - lots of photos and videos too. Need a good scare? Read it!
.
Anyway, as you can see, Bush has lost it. He's just a stupid lackey of the Israelis, warning Russia that Israel can and will nuke it if they don't stop standing up the Iranians -- and they can just nuke the U.S. back if they don't like it. BRING IT ON!! Who's president does he think he is, anyway??
.
Maybe it's time for me to start organizing protests again. Like a nice "NO SAMSON OPTION ON RUSSIA" protest outside the Israeli Embassy - and at next year's AIPAC conference - assuming Bush and his buddies haven't nuked most of us into oblivion by then!

For those of you not familar with his work, Martin van Creveld is perhaps the greatest military historian of our time. He has written aprox 2 dozen books, and is frequently invited to speak before War Colleges and intelligence agencies around the world.

No matter if you agree with him or not, his views deserve attention.

For a list of his works, go to

I have read various things by him that were a lot saner and less controversial than this. But it often is not by one's saner thoughts that one is remembered.
