UK army chief secretly visits Tel Aviv

Press TV – November 4, 2011

British military chief General Sir David Richards has secretly visited Tel Aviv earlier this week, the Israeli daily The Jerusalem Post quoted the regime’s military sources as saying.

Richards who is Britain’s Chief of the Defense Staff reportedly held several meetings with the senior commanders of the Israeli regime’s army though there are no details on the subject of his talks.

He also visited the northern parts of the Israeli occupied territories at the regime’s borders with Lebanon.

The secret visit comes as Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak are reportedly making efforts to rally enough support in the cabinet to launch a military attack on Iran though an Israeli minister has dismissed a conflict as imminent.

“This issue [of military attack on Iran] should be discussed by the cabinet and put to the vote. But this event has not been taking place yet,” said the minister, who is a member of the eight-member ‘intracabinet’ group opposed to an attack on Iran.

The British media have also reported that Britain is developing plans for military action against Iran through deploying cruise missile-armed submarines and warships near the country’s waters to help a possible US strike.

This comes as it is widely believed that the media hype about an imminent attack on Iran is part of the psychological warfare over Iran’s peaceful nuclear program.

Nevertheless, Iranian officials have repeatedly pledged that any attack on the country will be costly to the aggressors.

  1. This is an Iraq re dux with a little cut & paste work by the imperialist propagandist, who have no more creativity than conscience.

    Can it be said, “Once an imperialism, always an imperialist!? That is unless defeated by revolution or other imperialist.

    Robert Newman’s History of Oil, is a 45 minute video that is truly great in providing the perspective to comprehend the sequential wars of aggression for oil historically. While done with measured wit and charm, it is fact thick and will prove to be beyond your expectations, and memory, as it was for in reviewing it this morning.

    Truly, ‘The Past is Prologue’ as inscribed on the frieze of the National Archive building in Washington, D.C.

    Therefore, view Iran as reason for the invasion and occupation of Iraq, and much more.:

    • There is nothing particularly different between oil and other commodities. Coal and corn are just as prized and widely sought as economically competitive requisites of energy and consumption.

      Those who profess some fantastic allure to oil are either serving to redirect attention from the real issues at hand or they are subtly promoting “wars for oil” albeit in a very disguised manner.

      Oil is not unique. It is a means to an end and must compete with other commodities that serve the very same purposes (LNG and synfuels for example). “War for oil” is simply Dead On Arrival as an explanation for hegemony, imperialism or colonialism.
