WorldNetDaily – April 13, 2005
A commercial produced by an organization fighting for the freedom of Iran that depicts a nuclear terror attack in America – the kind many experts believe is possible should Tehran get the bomb – will run in 20 markets across the country this month.
Titled "An Atomic 9-11: When Evil is Appeased," the spot, sponsored by the Iran Freedom Foundation
, is based on a scenario described in the new WND Books release "Atomic Iran: How the Terrorist Regime Bought the Bomb and American Politicians"
, by Jerome R. Corsi, co-author of the best-selling "Unfit for Command."
The ad can be viewed on the IFF website
Corsi believes an atomic 9-11 is an imminent threat once a terrorist state like Iran has the capability to develop nuclear weapons.
"The major technical problems that have kept terrorists from exploding improvised nuclear devices within American cities are solved once a terrorist regime like the Islamic Republic of Iran has the capability to manufacture a nuclear weapon and deliver it in containers to a major U.S. port," he said.
"The device can be picked up by sleeper terrorist cells, assembled and driven into the heart of the city, where it can be detonated at the height of an ordinary business day."
The resulting destruction from a successful atomic 9-11 attack on a major U.S. city like New York would be enormous.
"In the blink of an eye, the United States could be reduced to second-class economic status," Corsi said.
The scenario described in "Atomic Iran" shows that a 150-kiloton IND exploded in New York would reduce much of the city to rubble. Some 1.5 million people would be killed instantly, with another 1.5 million certain to die over the next few days.
The television ad will air for 13 days four times daily in each city. The markets include cities in Maine, Mississippi, Texas, Oregon, California, New Jersey, Illinois, Ohio, South Carolina, Alabama, Indiana, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Washington, Florida, and Washington, D.C.
Efforts are being made to portray Iran as some kind of threat to America, with stories circulating about Iranian Weapons of Mass Destruction, just as similar reports were once heard about Iraq's alleged WMD's. They proved to be utterly baseless and while we suspect that Iran may be far closer to acquiring WMD's than Iraq ever was, and indeed may already possess them, this writer would suggest that these reports and the advertising campaign mentioned above - on a website edited by Joseph Farah - serve an ulterior motive.
Like the reports of Saddam Hussein's WMD, they prepare the American public for a US led military strike on Iran, once again justified by the threat of WMD's in the hands of a 'rogue state'. Just as Iraq was once alleged to be. And just like the Iraq invasion, the ground is being prepared by alleged 'dissidents' with talk of a threat posed by the target nation. And just like the Iraq invasion the ultimate beneficary will be not America but Israel.
For the Zionist state's leaders are said to be in a panic over the possibility that Iran actually possesses Weapons of Mass Destruction. With Iran's close proximity to Israel and Iran's deployment of the Shahab III, making it almost certain that Israel would be within striking distance of the Muslim world's first nuclear weapon. This is the real reason behind the coverage of Iran's emerging nuclear capability. Not because it is a real threat to America, but because Israel feels threatened and is now mustering its agents in the media, the State Department and the White House to push for a US led strike on Iran.
