Treacherous Alliance: The Secret Dealings of Israel, Iran, and the United States
by Trita Parsi – Yale University Press, 361 pp., $28.00


In his continuing effort to bolster support for the Iraq war, President Bush traveled to Reno, Nevada, on August 28 to speak to the annual convention of the American Legion. He emphatically warned of the Iranian threat should the United States withdraw from Iraq. Said the President, “For all those who ask whether the fight in Iraq is worth it, imagine an Iraq where militia groups backed by Iran control large parts of the country.”

On the same day, in the southern Iraqi city of Karbala, the Mahdi Army, a militia loyal to the radical Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, battled government security forces around the shrine of Imam Hussein, one of Shiite Islam’s holiest places. A million pilgrims were in the city and fifty-one died.

  1. Please check the enclosed videos which document links between the MEK terrorist organization and one of the ‘amateur’ cameramen who filmed the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center.

    If an Iranian nuclear device were used on an American city, it would likely be with the tacit cooperation of the neocon backers of the MEK terrorist organization, as a means to justify a massive strike against Iran.



  2. Well, why don’t you just summarize Galbraith’s piece, with a link to NY Review?

    He’s got an ax to grind against the administration, that’s for sure.

    Interesting, nevertheless…
