Stop Looking At Me… 
And Round Up the Usual Suspects!

ahmadinejad2(VizReport) It surprises me not at all that Iranian president Ahmadinezhad yesterday accused the United States and Israel of bombing the golden-domed Al-Askariya mosque in Samarra, Iraq. That’s not because I agree with his assessment, but because I understand how he thinks. 

The theocracy of Iran is under a tremendous amount of pressure from the international community. They’ve got a nuclear development program that’s considered by many countries (32 of 35 IAEA members) to be operating outside accepted norms. And since the election of Mr. Ahmadinezhad last summer, they’ve taken an increasingly aggressive stance toward Israel — with their president going so far as to declare the Holocaust “a myth” and to call for Israel:“to be wiped off the map.” 

It’s an established pattern of behaviour for Iran (especially with Ahmadinezhad at the political helm) to deflect attention from itself when confronted about its own actions. 

    For example: When Canada was pressing Iran to accept responsibility for the brutal torture, rape and murder of Iranian-born Canadian journalist Zara Kazemi, Iran turned about and blamed Canada for conspiring against the Iranian government and carrying out bombings in the southwestern province of Khuzestan. Um yeah… Canada. Mad bombers those Canadians. Never us mind that the Shia-based theocracy of Iran has been unfairly oppressing the Ahwazi Arab population of that province since 1979.

The bombing of the mosque (which is one of the holiest shrines in Shia Islam…after the Sacred Mosque of Imam Ali in Najaf, the mosque of Imam Hussein and the Hadrat Abbas Shrine in Karbala) has done less than nothing for the United States or Israel, but it has provided an excellent rhetorical platform for the Iranian president. On top of that, it has riled the majority Shia population of Iraq to the extent that armed groups are now kidnapping Sunnis off the streets and executing them in groups. 

The renewed violence and instability benefits no one as much as it does Iran. 

These most recent remarks from the Iranian leader are more than mere bluster. Mr. Ahmadinezhad is actually performing a shrewd psychological manipulation on the people of Iraq via the media, the strategy of which is proved out by the testimony of countless law enforcement officers worldwide: 

When asked about the most dangerous situations in which an officer can become involved, they don’t talk about bank robbers, axe-murderers or psychos, but about normal, everyday people in domestic disputes. 

There’s nothing more unpredictable than getting in-between two closely-related people in a tussle…or having to arrest one of them over the protests of the other. Too many cops have been injured–even killed–in such circumstances. In psychological terms, the principle is usually referred to as mutual emotional transference; the “heat of the moment” gets redirected to a third party, often with violent and unpredictable results. 

That’s very similar to the situation we have in Iraq. Two feuding branches of Islam are at each other’s throats and the local cops in that neighbourhood are the Americans. The next step could be all-out civil war. Even worse, it could be an all-out religious war. Or, the intent of yesterday’s Iranian fingerpointing may achieve its intended result, possibly sparking the most intense renewal of the insurgence against America forces and the recruitment of more “martyrs” for operations in Israel and the West. More than 50,000 potential shahids, according to public remarks by official Iranian government sources, have already signed up. 

As Ahmadi-Nezhad may be snidely commenting behind closed doors: “Why should Muslims fight each other when we can all be fighting the Crusaders and the Jews?” 

askariyaThe “Golden Mosque” was so called because of the splendid golden dome that was added to the shrine at the beginning of the last century. It is the place of final repose for the 10th and 11th Imams of the faith, and is just around the corner from the place where the 12th Imam, whose return is rumoured by the Iranian president to be imminent, disappeared in the year 878. 

The Twelfth Imam theory is central to the sect to which the Iranian president adheres. In fact, he has publicly stated that he expects the return of the 12th Imam within two years, which he believes will initiate the onset of the end-times and the return of Jesus. 

By all accounts, he believes this with all his heart. Does he, though, desire it enough to precipitate it by becoming one of the worst dajjals of all?

Iran’s Revolutionary Plan

The following March 1, 2006, excerpt from VizReport is unaltered. Though the forecast window elapsed without major incident, the subject matter and strategies contained therein remain highly relevant. It should be noted that the VizReport site was expertly hacked and its contents replaced by an image bearing a familiar Islamic religious pronouncement, on or about March 21st of that year.

(Note: Some hyperlinks in the attached text may have expired. Some have been updated to link to copies of original VizReport articles that have recently been re-published here.)

March 1, 2006

Normally, this panel would feature an index of all the latest stories published on the site, but for the next three weeks (March 1-21, 2006), this is how our main page will appear. The site will return to its regular display format after the Spring Equinox. 


To locate any Viz, Jereboa, PointDexter or Millard Fillmore stories, access the index links to their materials at the left-hand side of your screen. 

Why the change?

Update: March 07, 2006
Some search engines have de-referenced all or some of this site, but I am glad to report that Google and MSN are no longer among them. The Google and MSN indices of this domain have been largely reinstated. Cool. Anyway, back to the issue at hand: the analytical determination that Iran may be on the verge of a major move against the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) states. 

So, here goes… 

(20060301)

Iran will, in all likelihood, nuke its “problematicAhwazi Arab constituency with a “Shahab V” missile at Abaddon and blame it on Israel and/or the West. 

(Note: It was an attack on Abaddon [alt. spelling: Abadan] by Iraq in September 1980 that started the Iran-Iraq War, during which the city was mostly destroyed. It was also at the centre of the British-American ouster, in 1953, of Iran’s then-president, Mohammed Mossadegh, which led to the installation of the Shah, Reza Pahlavi. Then, in August 1978, on the 25th anniversary of the Mossadegh coup, a terrible fire broke out in the city’s Rex Cinema where as many as 470 people may have died; though one report mentioned 444 deaths. [Does that number sound familiar, or is it just me?] The doors were intentionally barred and the building torched. The fire was reportedly set [according to the testimony of many eyewitnesses] by the same Islamic fundamentalists who immediately blamed the Shah [the king] for the crime, provoking widespread demonstrations that…you guessed it…led to the overthrow of the Shah by the theocratic Hojjatieh sect of Shia Islam that still rules Iran to this day. The leader of the sect, Ayatollah Khomeini, had attempted to ban the showing of films in Iran from his base in Paris. Three different cinemas were burned down around the same time, but only the Rex [“King” in Latin] suffered considerable casualties. Khomeini himself actually watched at least two Hollywood films in his life, The Messenger [a movie about the life of Mohammed starring Anthony Quinn] and Omar Mokhtar, both directed by Arabic director Mostafa Akkad. Ironically, Akkad was killed by Al Qaeda suicide attackers while attending a wedding in Amman, Jordan, a few months ago.)  

Following the next self-inflicted hit on Abaddon, IRGC-directed “Bassij” paramilitary irregulars from the Ansar ol-Mahdi (Army of the Messiah), along with a number of suicide brigades from the “Lovers of Martyrdom Garrison”, will carry out assaults throughout the northern and western Gulf region, including at Basra, Kuwait, Riyadh and certain of the emirates, after having flown waves of helicopters through the radioactive debris field along the Shatt al-Arab waterway as Western, Iraqi, Kuwaiti and Saudi forces retreat from the fallout. 

The Red Sea will be jammed at the north by an obstruction in the Suez Canal, as tested on February 8th. Even passenger vessels will be at risk; reference the February 3rd sinking of the Salaam Boccaccio 98 in the northern Red Sea. The straits at Bab el’Mandeb in the south will be blockaded by fast rocket/missile boats similar to those that took out the two American Sea Dragons in that area on February 17th

This “strike.self–blame.others” strategy has been working effectively for Iran’s cultish leaders for many years — and it still works like a charm, as was recently demonstrated by its February 22nd destruction of the Golden Dome mosque of Al-Askariya in Samarra, Iraq, as well as several of the recent bombings in Iran’s Khuzestan province, particularly near the key cities of Ahwaz and Abaddon

The aim is to confuse Western strategists long enough to isolate Mecca (the penultimate objective), while breaking Western fleets into four controllable zones: the Red, the Med, the Indian, and the Persian Gulf. This scenario will probably also include a significant attack on Jiddah by Libyan, Eritrean and Sudanese irregular forces after a rush across the double-plugged Red Sea, as well as a sweeping drive northward into the Mecca region by Yemeni AQ. 

The plan is designed to closely correspond with the Christian scripture of Revelation, Chapter 9, verses 9:1 to 9:11. This is completely intentional. The star that falls from heaven is called “shahab” in Farsi. Angel and star are used interchangeably in the verse. The prophecy speaks of the “fifth angel” — Shahab V in Persian. Although the Shahab IV is the latest known missile in Iran’s arsenal, and is still under development, the Shahab V is their pocket ace; possibly a Russian KH-55 cruise missile, referred to in its Iranian incarnation by Janes Defence Weekly as the X-55. The bottomless pit is nuclear power. It is prophesied to be unleashed where the star falls. And its name is forecast to be Abaddon. 

Window: Some time in the next three weeks. 

Today’s date: March 01, 2006. 

The preamble to this story has been edited at various times, but the portion of the page following the datestamp (20060301) has been left untouched. A copy of the original file has been date-locked for later validation.
