The "Gourd of Ashes"
Rixon Stewart – Revised and Updated March 18, 2005
The notion that the US might launch a strike on Iran is gaining credibility. The idea has been discussed for some time but now we have a definite date. According to former US marine and UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter, President George Bush has endorsed proposals for a strike on Iran in June. This is what the neocons wanted all along and the ultimate beneficiary will not be the US but Israel, as it's nuclear regional dominance has been threatened by Iran. At this stage it is unclear whether it will be a joint Israeli/US strike or whether it will involve UK forces too but whatever the composition of the military force involved, an actual strike on Iran looks increasingly likely.
With the prospect of a US led strike looming it is worth taking note of a couple of warnings we recieved from psychic friends. In recent weeks this website recieved word that not only was a US strike in the offing but that the resulting conflict could be far worse than Iraq and could spread beyond the region, ultimately resulting resulting in a global conflict involving Russia and China too. With this in mind we proffer the following, slightly revised article. Ed.
US Stages Simulated Attack on Iran
On December 12, 2004, the U.S. Defense Department was said to have completed simulated war games to determine the feasibility of destroying Iran's nuclear weapons program.
The Atlantic Monthly magazine reported that the Pentagon held simulations of a U.S. military strike on Iranian bases and nuclear facilities. The magazine said the recent war games also included a ground invasion of Iran.
The simulation envisioned a three-phase war against the Islamic republic. The first phase was composed of air strikes against bases of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, believed to control Iran's nuclear and missile programs. U.S. intelligence sources were quoted as saying that such a strike would require one day and comprised the easiest part of any military campaign.
The "Gourd of Ashes"
The above report may seem informative enough but, as with so much modern journalism, it only tells part of the story. What it omits to mention is that Iran may not simply the next step in the “War on Terror”, but might have been the ultimate goal right from the very start.
First Afghanistan was invaded, which expediently has a long border with Iran. Then Iraq was invaded, which also conveniently shares a border with Iraq, thus opening the possibility of attacking Iran on two fronts.
Crucially, it also omits to mention that Iran has been steadily building up its armed forces and unlike Iraq under Saddam is more than ready to meet an Anglo-American attack. With revenues from oil production it has bought more than 7 Billion dollars worth of state of the art military aircraft from Russia, including SU 27 and SU 34. In addition to manufacturing its own ground attack aircraft and armour.
However the really critical omission, according to an intelligence insider, is that Iran is ready to fight a US led attack and not only with conventional weapons. In fact it is not just trying to develop nuclear weapons, it may already possess them.
According to one source with connections to British Intelligence, Iran has at least 10 nuclear weapons housed separately in reinforced silos under mountains. It also has the means to deliver them in a variety of missiles, some of which are still under development but some already deployed. These include: the Shaheen III, fully operational and capable of hitting Israel and Coalition forces in Iraq (pictured below recent parade in Teheran): the Shaheen IV, still being developed but with the potential of hitting Europe and the UK: and finally the Shaheen V, also still under development but with the potential to hit America’s east coast from Iran.
Trouble is, the Anglo-American alliance has shot itself in the foot with its claims over Iraq’s Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). So few will believe any similar accusations against Iran, thus giving the Iranian Revolutionary Guards more time to manufacture even more WMD’s. By the end of this year, we are informed, Iran’s autonomous Revolutionary Guards will possess anything up to 20 nuclear weapons capable of hitting Israel and US forces in Iraq, with the deployment of longer-range missile systems an imminent possibility.
Moreover, the possibility of a US led attack was further emphasised November 2004, when the Internet was abuzz with speculation about a pending escalation of conflict in the Middle East. Talk was of a proposed joint US/Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities and leadership. Coming just prior to the US elections, it sounded improbable but the case put forward was reasoned and convincing enough. Now further reports have been received.
First, this website received an email from an individual near Mountain Home Air Force Base in the U.S. In response to a Voice of the White House report on the proposed US/Israeli strike, the writer confirmed that in the middle of 2004 they had indeed seen jets from both nations conduct training exercises simulating bombing runs.
In addition to 6 to 8 Israeli attack jets, U.S. aircraft and numerous ground support troops also took part. Several times a day the aircraft would take off for bombing runs at a nearby bombing range.
Of course, in itself this does not mean a joint US/Israeli strike on Tehran is imminent but it does substantiate the musing of a psychic friend. Because years before the invasion of Iraq, our friend was saying that America and Israel would strike Tehran but only after America had invaded Iraq.
At the time the idea seemed outlandish, Saddam Hussein was still in power and an Anglo-American invasion of Iraq had not even been proposed. Now of course, things are different.
Obviously the future is not written in stone, it depends on the outcome of events in the present and our psychic friend, who first spoke of a joint US/Israeli attack on Iran, now, says it is unlikely to go ahead in the near future. This, he says, is based on purely military considerations: satellite reconnaissance has been unable to identify all the targets, in particular Iran’s missiles. So if an attack is launched, Iran will likely retaliate with some of its still undetected nuclear weapons, most probably aimed at Israel. Hence the proposed attack has been put on hold, at least for now.
In addition the situation in Iraq has deteriorated dangerously for such an attack to be launched just yet.
However, that doesn’t mean that it will never take place. Iranian military capability is growing and Israel and its allies in Washington are said to be in a panic over the perceived threat. Particularly the danger to Israel and US forces in Iraq posed by the Shahab III.
As well they might be. But apart the Shahab III Iran also has SU 37’s and Mig 35’s, both of which are more than a match for their Israeli and US counterparts. And that’s not the only threat posed, for Iran may have yet more tricks up its sleeve. According to our psychic friend, in addition to conventional nuclear weapons Iran also has micro-nukes and neutron bombs, the so-called ‘dirty nukes’ whose punch lies not in its explosive blast but the power of its radioactive emission.
Apart from virtually deriding these ideas however, with talk of 'ripping yarns' and 'elaborate hoaxes' the mainstream media has all but ignored them, focusing attention instead on Iran’s nuclear reactor.
Nonetheless, the longer the US and Israel nervously eye Iran, the more powerful it becomes. Apart from having developed the Shahab III, Iran is close to finalising development of the Shahab IV and Shahab V. Utilising Chinese and North Korean scientists with Russian assistance, these two weapons systems are said to be the equivalent to Soviet ICBM’s of the late 50’s and early 60’s.
They may not be state of the art technology, but it’s enough to give Washington and its allies serious cause for concern.
So are we seeing the emergence of a new power, a power that even if it cannot invade America, will be able to give it a seriously bloody nose? Like Vietnam, only much, much worse; a power that could wreak havoc in mainland North America and lay waste to it cities? This writer thinks so and again it would come as the fulfilment of prophecy, Native American Indian prophecy.
In 1986 Lee Brown gave a talk at the Continental Indigenous Council, Tanana Valley, Alaska, in which he outlined the vision of a nuclear strike on mainland America. His talk was part of the Native American oral tradition that predated the arrival of the white man in North America, and was made all the more convincing because it spoke of relatively recent developments: such as the last two world wars, the moon landings and genetic modification. Thus what follows has already been partially proven and should not be taken lightly.
Native American elders had foreseen advent of atomic weapons long ago, said Lee Brown and referred to them as the “gourd of ashes”.
According to Lee Brown:
"Many of you of Native background may have heard "the spirits will warn you twice, but the third time you stand alone." We've had two warnings, the first two World Wars, but now we stand-alone before the third one. As it says in the Baha's Writings, there will be no one protected. When this house is in the sky, (manned space station?) the Great Spirit is going to shake the Earth a third time and whoever dropped the gourd of ashes; upon them it is going to drop.
"They said the gourd of ashes would fall from the air. It will make people like blades of grass in the prairie fire and things will not grow for many seasons. I saw on television not too long ago that they were talking about the atomic bomb, the gourd of ashes. They said it was the best-kept secret in the history of the United States, the elders wanted to speak about it in 1920. They would have spoken of it and foretold its coming if they could have entered into the League of Nations. The elders tried to contact President Roosevelt and ask him not to use the gourd of ashes. Because it would have a great effect on the earth and eventually cause even greater destruction and a Third Shaking of the Earth, the Third World War...
“And so they say there's going to be a Third Shaking of the Earth. It's not going to be a good thing to see but we will survive it. We will survive it...
“In the cycle of time, from the beginning to the end, this time we are in now will change the purification of all things. They say this is the hardest time to live, but it is also the greatest honor to be alive and see this...
“...We are now within the purification of all things. Non-Natives call this the "Apocalypse". The Native call this the "Purification". I want to share one Non Native prophecy with you. There was a seer in Europe whose name was Nostradamus. I'm sure many of you have heard of him. He foresaw three Great Shakings of the Earth. He said the Third Great Shaking would begin when Lesser Arabia and Persia engage in a war. Five years ago ...Iraq attacked Iran. Lesser Arabia is today called Iraq. Persia is called Iran. These two prophecies coincide. Both the Native elders and Nostradamus said this will start slowly, almost unnoticed by the people of the earth, but eventually it will involve us all. Eventually the "gourd of ashes" will fall from the sky so ...the Mississippi River, will boil from the heat of the "gourd of ashes" that will fall on this land. But don't despair. It sounds terrible, but we will survive it. We will live through it. I don't think there's anyone chosen to live through it, but some people will.”
