Prepare for the True Face of Iran


Iran, or should we call them the English translation for the Ancient Farsi word we represent by Iran we discussed yesterday, Aryan, will soon be ready to flex their muscles and do so to great surprise of the Western World who have misjudged Iran every step of their development since President Jimmy Carter personally made sure the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini attained the leadership and turned Iran, Aryan, into an Islamic Theocratic dictatorship where a select group of sagely appearing Imams appeared to guide an elected Parliament and the elected President all chosen from a select group of candidates who had been vetted by the Imams who make up the Guardian Council who also are to advise the Grand Ayatollah who holds ultimate power. Other than the Guardian Council to a lesser extent and the Grand Ayatollah to a much greater extent, the remainders of the governance, the President, the Parliament are all simply trappings to give a semblance of allowing the people any degree of power with their mostly meaningless votes. In all honesty we can probably safely state that the results of the elections could likely be published by the government media three weeks before they will presumably be cast. Iran has been patiently biding their time and their awakening is close at hand and the world will never be the same.


The Iranians worked quietly, clandestinely, and with great care on developing nuclear warheads for their missiles working for that day when they become and announce their entry as a nuclear power. They know that with a fair number of nuclear weapons they can do far more and make demands upon the world. Nuclear weapons make one a superpower and with the right delivery weapons they make a nation far more effective and respected. The Soviet Union was considered the equal of the United States even though they were in economic ruination which eventually caused their inevitable collapse. Still, despite that collapse Russia is respected if for no other reason for their nuclear weapons and their ability to virtually destroy human civilizations. China became a nation to reckon with when they proved to have developed thermonuclear weapons and the ICBMs with which to deliver them to any point on the globe. Iran knows that Israel was considered the strongest nation in the Middle East due to their victories in their wars in 1967 and 1973 defeating Egypt and Syria in both conflicts and also Jordan in 1967. Their survival in 1948-9 was considered a miracle in the West and a calamity in the Arab World. Even with India and Pakistan their conflict over who owns what of the corpse of Kashmir changed and became more of a low level simmering conflict with occasional outbursts but any opening of the conflict seemed far more likely to immediately turn to mediations than escalation and thus there, at least, nuclear weapons had a calming effect as the alternative was unthinkable.


What about Iran? Will it have a calming influence and also cause their sponsoring of terrorism to also decline? These are very serious questions which should have been included in the nuclear deal and were not even an afterthought. Iranian influence through Hezballah by which the governance of the nation was changed and even the demographics took a drastic turn caused the Christians to flee from the terror tyranny. Hezballah was another instance where a nation, upon reaching a critical percentage of its population made up of Muslims, turned violent with outside arming and instigation. This resulted in the non-Muslim population who could leave and restart their life in Europe, Australia, Israel, New Zealand or the United States emigrating with no intention of ever returning. They went giving up their ancestral home in many instances and choosing to turn their backs on that history and with heavy hearts setting their sights to take root elsewhere away from the growing violence. Such decisions are rarely reached easily and require dire situations which tear at the heart and require a mindset which once the situation reaches that point you make the decision and, like a steel trap, close the past and step into a new future hoping that you might find some others who made a similar decision before you. Maybe you have relatives or were able to locate and land employment, something which always sets a mind into a better state when making such a traumatic decision. Still, the children, they seldom understand the reasons and have the hardest time at first but fortunately children are resilient; sometimes they have no other choice. This was the effect in one small nation due to Iran and their terror proxy Hezballah but Iran needed a base from which to operate and Syria was always known to be a pyramid turned on its tip and always threatening to topple in the slightest of political winds. After the mantle passed to Bashir al-Assad it became obvious early on he was not his father, not by a longshot which made Lebanon all the more essential for Iran. But soon all that will be different, won’t it.


Iran is heavily involved in Lebanon through Hezballah who they have armed with hundreds of thousands of rockets of various sizes, warheads, ranges and multiple usage types from ground to ground, MLRV*, anti-ship, anti-tank, anti-aircraft, multiple warhead and rumored to also have cluster munitions which are illegal under the international rules of war, something which seems not to apply to Iran, Hezballah and others when used against Israel. Hezballah is only a single front which Iran has been building to destroy Israel or to use against Israel as a distraction from other actions they may be preparing for elsewhere. They are also arming Hamas and Islamic Jihad as best they can with Israel doing what they are able to prevent such shipments. Israel had captured a few of the ships carrying arms to unload into the Sinai Peninsula for smuggling through the tunnels from the Sinai Peninsula into Gaza for Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Israel is rumored to have also bombed trucks in the Sudan which were taking arms shipments from Iran to smuggle into the Sinai Peninsula by ferrying them across the Red Sea presumably under cover of night. Iran has also been rumored to have contacted Mahmoud Abbas in an attempt to also give him arms if he would be willing to take directives as to when and how to attack Israel from Tehran. Abbas has made a number of trips to Iran as have other Palestinian authority (PA) officials. Read what one may but they have also made trips to Saudi Arabia and Egypt when Morsi was President. The trips were rumored to have been about collecting on promises for funding though such is only rumor and unconfirmed.


Other than Israel, Lebanon and the entire imbroglio which is Syria, the Iranians are also involved in a proxy-war with Saudi Arabia in Yemen where recriminations of improper tactics and the illegal targeting of civilians and using the same civilians as human shields. The civil war in Yemen would have faltered and petered out except for the addition of Iranian heavy weapons and other supplies as well as IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corp) trainers and special operations specialists to aid the Houthis in their efforts to take control of the whole of Yemen. The Saudi Arabian efforts have largely been providing artillery and air support to the remaining government forces which have fled the capital city and are fighting to retain the southern port city of Aden. Additionally, for all intents and purposes the Iranians are the Iraqi government and control the entirety of the Shiite areas under government control. The Iranians by being the military command in Iraq they also are the ones placing requests for and more often than not receiving air support from the United States which had all but placed the United States Air Force planes and pilots under Iranian directives. This would not be so bad if the other sorties the United States had run against the Islamic State have largely returned with armaments still locked to their hard-points with none having been deployed as targets reported by Intelligence either were moved before the aircraft arrived as the intelligence was already dated. The Islamic State had figured the delay from satellite passing to any United States attack plan to reach the actual units which scramble their aircraft and they have the satellites timed so they move their resources as soon as the satellites have passed and before the orders reach the attack units. Thus far the United States is losing the cat and mouse game with the Islamic State and there are two main reasons. First the orders have to travel from the satellite intelligence reaching the surface in Iraq which is then forwarded to Washington for interpretation and orders to be cut after receiving White House approval. Then the orders are relayed back to Iraq where they are then passed through command and assigned to an actual Air Force unit which scrambles the pilots after the approved and required armaments are placed on the aircraft. All said and done, from satellite to aircraft is an hour or over leaving the Islamic State all the time it needs to almost casually move their assets to new locations and even return them to the originally determined location for the next satellite.


These efforts are restricted to the Arabian Peninsula and around the Middle East. If only these were the limit of the Iranian efforts it would be troubling enough, but alas there is so much more. Hezballah has been training terrorists in a complex along with IRGC units both providing specialist training to the terror units which rotate through the training area. The area has two separate airports, barracks and plenty of Jungle in which to train as well as a mock urban setting. The area is known as the Tri-Border Area which sits on the border area of Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina. The terrorist training area is also used by the drug cartels to further train their guard units, personal protection guards and any other people who need specialized training which the IRGC or Hezballah trainers are capable of providing. The advent of this training became evident very quickly as the Drug Cartels sent their most trusted personnel for training as soon after their return to Mexico there was a number of beheadings occurring with some performed and the heads later rolled into locations for the most impact to further enforce the threat the Cartels were to the public in Mexico as well as government law enforcement, courts and elected officials. Most of these beheadings took place largely within a hundred or so miles from the border with the United States as the American illicit drug markets are the main consumers of their wares. The training provided along with armaments including mines and anti-personnel devices could be used to make the main house safer from any encroachment by other cartels or law enforcement personnel. In exchange it is thought that Hezballah has gained free use and assistance by human smugglers to gain entrance into the United States and potentially even housing purchased and readied to provide the cover home for a terror group of individuals who may have an immediate assignment or they may be a sleeper cell of a mother, father and teen aged appearing sons who are likely bored in their high school classes which they must attend to retain the appearance of being a family with teenage sons. The Tri-Border Area has been used for decades by now and is a perfect location as it is very remote and each of the government’s claims that it is the other two countries that are responsible for security and law enforcement. With each government pointing their fingers at the other two’s responsibility to enforce the law, it is needless to point out that while each is pointing at the other two they are not bothering to provide much of any in the way of law enforcement over these areas thus leaving well enough alone as all three nations have no appetite for incurring the wrath of Iran and Hezballah. Make no mistake, should any of these nations take any steps to enforce the law against the terrorist and IRGC or any other Iranian forces training or waiting for orders to infiltrate the United States to carry out an immediate attack or join others who are simply lying in wait for orders some time in the future, the officials and military commanders had best watch their front, back, right, left, up and down as they will have painted a target on themselves.


The simple thing is that Iran with their world-wide reach through Hezballah and Hamas operatives as well as their own IRGC which was formed to provide a dedicated unit with the same size, financing and equipment as the regular Iranian Army to extend their reach beyond their borders would become a primary resource in such instances. The proof that Iran’s arm can reach around the world was where Hezballah, with IRGC assistance and possibly participation, accomplished the assaults on the AMIA bombing, an attack on the Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (Argentine Israelite Mutual Association) on July 18, 1994, killing 85 people and injuring hundreds as well as the March 17, 1992, attack on the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires as a pickup truck driven by a suicide bomber and loaded with explosives smashed into the front of the Israeli Embassy where the blast killed 29 and wounded 242 others. The AIMA attack was being investigated by Alberto Nisman who left the investigation unfinished upon his suspicious death.

The day after Prosecutor Nisman was found dead in his apartment the morning he was scheduled to report to the Argentine legislature from what was initially reported to have been a suicide, we here at BTC reported our suspicions with our January 21, 2015, article titled Prosecutor’s Fate Mirrors Western Culture. The previous day, we regret to say, we missed the mark when we claimed that his death would be classified as a suicide and never investigated in our January 20, 2015, article The Death of Alberto Nisman. Though a prosecutorial team was assigned to investigate his untimely death and the circumstances surrounding this horrid murder, there was never anyone prosecuted and the paths investigated led either beyond the borders which was simply stated as beyond their prosecutorial privileges, something which would only have piqued Alberto Nisman further and his indomitable will to find the real truth no matter the obstacles or inconvenience to powerful people. It is really pathetic that a man who gave his all because of his zeal to follow the path of truth no matter where it led would have his murder swept under the carpet to satisfy crooked politicians, a terrorist group operating partially in Argentina in the tri-border region to be given a pass and to allow Iran’s implicated hand also to go unslapped. That is the saddest tribute a man can receive as to have his death be left unresolved as the result of an abortive investigation which was never given the honesty which he had dedicated and given his life. An upstanding and outstanding man deserved more.

Disturbing Dreams Near and Far


The nightmares can also come from our subconscious mind and strike while we are walking, gazing out the window, watching what passes for television or simply staring into the far end of the room but not really seeing anything as you’re listening to your mind. For me this often happens when I am sifting through articles and reading one which just did not quite measure up to expectations so you continue seeing the world but hearing a different tune, or set of thoughts. OK, maybe I’m a bit different getting stories weaving between two extremes, in this case the near reality which is going to have serious consequences as the masses try to continue to differentiate between the events in their world from the events in the Middle East.


The recent Islamist terrorist shooting in San Bernardino on December 2, 2015, where fourteen people were killed and twenty-two people were seriously injured and the terror couple were caught traveling on their way to another location and had the SWAT team not been at a training exercise with all their equipment and vehicles within a few miles from the last reported position and were able to intercept the Islamist couple and end their rampage before they reached their next location and victims. It was discerned the couple had planned to continue their murder rampage until stopped. The very recent execution style assault on a Philadelphia police officer where thirteen bullets were fired at Officer Jesse Hartnett while he was in his patrol car with the self-declared jihadist and suspect, Edward Archer, told homicide investigators he “pledges his allegiance to Islamic State, he follows Allah, and that is the reason he was called upon to do this.” Below is coverage from ABC in the United States with video of the assault and the officer responding and giving chase miraculously despite three bullets in his left arm making it unusable yet Officer Jesse Hartnett managed to shoot and wound the assassin leading to his being captured.





I can barely hold my excitement to hear President Obama explain how this has nothing to do with Islam because the man was deranged and though he was responding for the Islamic State which we all know had been contained by President Obama’s coalition and they too are not Islamic as Islam is the religion or piece, oops, did I misspell that, so sorry. The truth is that there have been numerous terror attacks since initial World Trade Center bombing on February 26, 1993 where a truck loaded with explosives detonated at approximately seventeen minutes past noon and killed six people and injured more than a thousand people causing a reportedly half-billion dollars in damage. It is claimed that the main terrorist players were rounded up and caught though we will never know for certain. The one certainty was that the plotters were all Islamists and they were driven by the same book, the Quran, which is actually two books written in two cities and two opposing viewpoints, the Medina Quran and the Mecca Quran representing the contrasting periods and fortunes in Muhammad’s life. The followers who finally recorded the modern Quran almost two centuries after Muhammad’s death decided that the verses they attributed to Medina were to supercede those written after the original supernatural inspirations Muhammad received in a cave outside Mecca from spiritual visitation of the Archangel Gabriel as the Medina’s verses served their motivations of conquest and spreading Islam and their rule by their swords. The people the FBI claimed were the main forces and minds behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing are pictured below.

The ringing sounds of Islamic terrorism is something Israelis do not candy-coat, though the level of violence required for even Israeli politicians to actually label an act as terrorism is often beyond belief. Huge stones, cinderblocks, firebombs and mob massing and surrounding a car using tire-irons and bats to break the windows and assault the occupants are not reported or commented on as terrorism unless there is a rising of emotion of the Israeli people or they cause a fatality or something else forces such an attack into the news cycle. Shootings where the shooter does not injure anybody, or worse, are often simply dismissed as harassment, not actual terrorism, and we don’t even have anyone once known as Barry Soetoro for the media to run to for the wisdom of the ages or at least the Maison Blanc. The proof is the stabbing terrorist attacks which hit the news cycles at the end of September and into the third week of October and since have gotten spotty coverage at best but these stabbings have continued at near the same pace and silence even in much of the news in Israel. Arab attacks and murderous intents and actions against Israelis are not newsworthy.


On the other hand, especially in Haaretz, the Duma Jewish perpetrated arson terror attack was given constant daily deep coverage and was considered a national disgrace, and it was. But why was that two Jews who acted possibly out of frustrations similar in magnitude and importance to these youths as the Arab’s are constantly excused for their acts because of frustration but Israelis, especially Israeli Jews are supposed to be above such distresses and act more morally and never give in to such distress in their lives and just bear anything and everything and never lash out in violence. Such would be a nice thing if the world were anywhere near perfection but the world is not. If the world was perfect the promises to the Jews and the Zionist Congress that all the lands west of the Jordan River would be sacrosanct reserved throughout time immemorial but that had been made into a mockery. Stabbings daily and that is considered just the price of being a Jew in the Middle East as if the half of the Jewish families in Israel who lost all as they were forced from the Muslim lands where their families had lived through good times and not so wonderful times where being a Jew brought scorn and abuse and times of acceptance or at least passivity and were suddenly facing increasing belligerence and violence forcing them from their homes and businesses leaving all wealth behind. These Jews arrived mostly in Israel and were met over the first decade of Israeli existence by a core of Jews who had been residing in Israel and an equal number of survivors from Europe and the death camps and knowing they too could never go home again and were leaving all behind. The real miracle was that these difficulties never produced any refugee camps or any sob stories to the world on how things which were done to them were so terrible that all they could think to do was sit in an apartment complex and wait to be returned to a place that likely no longer exists and for that they have basically sacrificed three and four generations of their family as they are held behind high fences and barbed wire and some even with guards by their own fellow Arabs.


So, Arab refugees from the late 1940’s through the 1950’s and through the 1960’s are to be supported by the world and because their leaders refuse any settlement which does not end the existence of a Jewish Israel. Now Europeans and much of the third world as well as Barry Soetoro, oops, I meant President Obama all insist there must be almost another quarter of Israel sacrificed in the name of peace and equality. This sacrifice would include the most emotionally, religiously and historically precious locations to be surrendered and placed beyond the ability of Jews to easily visit. Just as today it requires a military guarding force provided by the IDF using cover of darkness to visit Joseph’s Tomb despite promises by the Arab authority leader, Mahmoud Abbas, and their lead liar, I mean negotiator, Saeb Erekat; their promises for these other locations would be equally as false this time as they proved last time. This is the great deal which sacrifices what was promised lands by the League of Nations and presumably by the United Nations but instead of returning lands stolen through act of war started by at the least a half dozen Arab States in 1948-9 to the rightful nation who liberated these lands west of the Jordan River and the world knows all of this but refuse to even permit the Jews their Promised Lands in peace. There is only one Jewish States while there are twenty plus Arab States with Hamastan founded from lands stolen by Egypt and then stolen again by Hamas founding their own little fiefdom and the world wants us to allow another rocket launching failed state all along the high ground overlooking the heart of Israel giving the rocket launchers line of sight to correct their aim. Unlike Hamas who in Gaza are shooting over expanses of desert where the land is less developed, the other state proposed by the worlds arbiters of what is fair to handicap Israel want to place rockets to fire where every rocket would be bound to strike something unless intercepted by Iron Dome which would mean requiring Israel to fire a ten to twenty thousand dollar interceptor at every last fifty dollar rocket. That would be a surefire economic disaster in the making eventually, and not all that eventually, such would bankrupt Israel which somehow appears to be the plan.


But the world is about to realize the real danger of terrorism in this world. The levels of terror attacks suffered in Israel will never be visited on the world, and for that we here at BTC are glad as nobody should be forced to suffer the constant terror levels suffered in Israel. Israel has worked to keep the price on both sides to a minimum but this latest Intifada if it continues to escalate as it has shown is likely the price will become very high on both sides. No matter the level the terror rises to in Israel as the other shoe is preparing to drop and, as the Reverand Wright would say, “The chickens are coming home to roost.” The first show has been the sporadic terrorism throughout the developed first world but nothing even remotely comparable to what Israel faces. That will become a closing gap as time passes and the Islamic State and Iran each try to make the biggest splash in Europe and the United States with al-Qaeda and Taliban amongst others also in the mix seeking fame and followers. The world thinks what they will; as soon, when the Islamic State, Hezballah and other injected terror leaders who are amongst the ‘Syrian refugees’ and lone wolves each seek the glory of constant news coverage and their fifteen minutes on the world’s stage, will erupt in a symphony of terror. When Iran decides it’s their turn to take center stage, then the real horrors will begin. Iran has not had Hezballah training terrorists in the Tri-Border Region in South America since the 1970’s and possibly even earlier for nothing. Hezballah has trained terror cells and inserted into the United States and others in Mexico working with the Cartels.

These plans have been in the works for decades and the level they will unleash will be horrific and will cause an upheaval as the people demand of the government protection even at the price of their freedoms being temporarily curtailed. Those freedoms will never be restored as once gone government will feed on the added powers. Once drinking the intoxicant that is the power of a police state, always will continue the police state. That story has been written and been the last stage before the democracy dies throughout history and in every case the people always claimed the same thing as they would sing these words as they watched all hope slowly dim, “It can’t happen here.”





Sing the extra verse with the ending fade out:
Honest, it can’t happen here; can it, well, please tell me, truthful or not, it can’t happen here. If I say it, sing it, shout it out drowning the news and those screaming about doom, then it can’t happen here, can it?

Prosecutor’s Fate Mirrors Western Culture


Yesterday’s article about the reported suicide death of Alberto Nisman, the Argentine prosecutor investigating the terrorist strike on the 1994 bombing of the Argentine-Israeli Mutual Association (AMIA), did our best to convey our suspicions that suicide was the least likely manner in which he lost his life. First thing with the sun rising over the Rocky Mountains came the first inklings that perhaps Alberto Nisman had not taken his own life. There were his friends who related that he was a positive and upbeat individual who loved life and lived it well. This added to the fact that his death came mere hours before he was scheduled to appear before the Congress of the Argentine Nation to give witness on the progress and particulars of his probe into the greatest singular crime of the last century. Adding to the evidence against his committing suicide his appearances in an interview where he appeared to be really looking forward to this appearance where he had stated that his investigation against Kirchner was “likely to kill me,” horribly prophetic. Well, the initial reaction in Argentina was anything but passive as friends, coworkers and the general public were all up in arms demanding a more thorough investigation be made into the suspicious death of this prosecutorial investigator. Slowly the day passed and the evidence slowly put to lie the suicide theory as the cause of death of Prosecutor Alberto Nisman. The first evidence beyond the fact that Alberto Nisman was an unlikely candidate to have committed suicide was the admission that there was no suicide note left, a sure sign against suicide as the note is much more than a simple Hollywood convention. The final knife in the heart was the fact that the firearm found in the room did not belong to Alberto Nisman and everybody knows that one would find it rather difficult to borrow a friend’s handgun with which to commit suicide. By the end of the day yesterday the Argentine government had turned from blaming the death of Prosecutor Alberto Nisman on a suicide into making it the next urgent investigation for the Argentine Prosecutors Office.


The problems with the investigation by Alberto Nisman are that it was making some powerful people uncomfortable. The fact that those people included the present and a past President of Argentina, former President Carlos Menem and current President Cristina Kirchne, made it a very poor move if personal longevity is one of your desired aims. Alberto Nisman was a man of fate, truth and integrity who went where the facts led him and damn the implications and potential to make people of power feel threatened and thus very uncomfortable by his findings. The fact that his investigation had also led to include Iran, Hezballah and the clandestine relations between certain political entities and Faustian deals over oil and influence and he boldly went where no man had before chasing only the truth. He knew the costs could be high and that the information he had gathered and their implications might even lead to his being murdered but he kept with his faith that such was not possible because Argentine society was not that of some tin pot dictatorship or third rate banana republic but a modern democracy under the rule of law. Unfortunately for Alberto Nisman somebody somewhere whose toes he had trod upon did not hold such a high view of the nation and the supremacy of the rule of law as he ended up dead on the floor of his room by a strange firearm mere hours before making witness to some truths before the national Congress where those secrets he had uncovered were about to be revealed and placed under the light of day and made clear for the eyes of the nation and the world. Now he had been silenced which only adds one more crime to the list of crimes Alberto Nisman had investigated, and also made a strong statement which those who will be tasked with investigating his death and those who will be assigned to complete his investigations will keep foremost in their minds as they carefully tread around implying any people of influence as they will never know for sure if that person is the same who already bought silence with the death of a human being. Nobody will desire these posts and whoever is so tasked may consider finding a new line of work rather than take such a risky tasking. Hopefully there will be another person of courage and dedication which is at least of a similar bravery that Alberto Nisman displayed and an immutable nerve to chase truth and do that which is required to complete the task with honesty, integrity and a thoroughness and toughness which casts all other concerns aside following down every lead to its final arrow which flies truly to home in on those guilty of crimes against the state and the AMIA bombings. Where such a person can be found is a hard task to answer as people such as Alberto Nisman are a rare and precious breed.


The fact that a man of such integrity and honesty was laid waste in a moment of selfish thuggery is a sad commentary of our world. That there was someone of high rank and influence would sink to murder a countryman even if they called upon a person of lesser morals, though which would have been the person of lesser morals is questionable, and take the life of a modern day knight who only sought to complete his assignment to its conclusion and follow the truths where they would take him is a sad testimony, period. Western society used to have leaders who would have simply taken the accusation and at the least made a deal to tell all and resign quietly melting into obscurity with their reputation ruined and reaping the scorn of their countrymen. Apparently holding on to the trappings has become more important to some in whom the people have chosen to place their trust and such a person betraying the people’s trust by the taking of the life of a public servant who was doing what the people through their government had tasked him to perform is one of the saddest accusations against those who are offered up as a valid choice to lead one of the democratic nations in our modern world. Murder to silence an accusation was something expected in monarchies, dictatorships and other lesser forms of governments and certainly not of a democratically elected governance, yet that is what we have witnessed yesterday in Argentina. The fact the there were likely also terrorist entities involved and that some of those very terrorist entities may now be placed in high and honorable positions within the government of Iran does introduce another angle which must be considered. There is little doubt that there was probably involvement in the AMIA bombing of Hezballah and Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) which train and occupy a town in the tri-border (Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay intersecting region) area in South America and the central area for terrorist activities in the Western Hemisphere and that these also may have had some part in the assassination of Alberto Nisman. The IRGC and especially the al-Quds force, which is the special forces units of the IRGC, are also a training and testing grounds for promotion into high level government positions within the Iranian theocracy such as Mohsen Rabbani who was the cultural attaché of the Iranian embassy in Buenos Aires and has since been promoted to head the Oriental Thought Cultural Institute in Qom, Iran after having started in the IRGC. Even had the assassination of Alberto Nisman been carried out by Hezballah, a probability which cannot be ignored, there was still likely somebody within the Argentine government or well connected to the current government who would have arranged the infiltration of the Hezballah terrorist who performed the strike and then facilitated the exit before the dawn revealed the results of the deed. Any way that this horrific crime was carried out it reflects on the barbarity which still remains in the halls of power even in the democratic institutions of the modern world. Such a commentary on our modern world places into question exactly how modern that world really is. Obviously we have yet to grow beyond the self-preservation which often reveals the worst side of any of us but when it involves somebody in high office in whom a great amount of trust has been placed by the people all the more difficult it is to swallow that bitter pill.


Let us pray that the murderer of Alberto Nisman is brought to justice and all involved in what is very likely a web of intrigue, criminality and depravity involving who knows how many people of immoral criminals. May another prosecutor who takes their pursuit of truth and deep faith in the law have the desire to find the hidden truth and then bring those involved in the massacre of 85 people and the injuring of 300 others in the horrific crime to be finally brought to trial and to justice and forced to pay for their heinous crimes. We should also hope that the murderer of Alberto Nisman and any accomplices both before and after the act be rounded up and face the cold judgment of the court and be made to pay for the crime of murder for the sake of denying justice and depriving the people of Argentina of a hero of heroes in the offices of the prosecutors which was exemplified by Alberto Nisman like few have done before and likely few will accomplish going forward though such is in short supply and never more needed than in the unraveling of the tangled web woven from murder and deceit. There is a hole in the fabric that is Argentina and that hole will be difficult to mend as it is the hole made by the loss of a truly complete and honest servant of the people and of law and the order it produces for their society, a hole which takes time and others of equal or greater firmness in tackling the challenges of toeing the straight line of following the truth wherever it may lead, sometimes truth is the most difficult of things to hold oneself to following. Good luck Argentina as you now have the unenviable task of setting to not only finding the murderer of an honest public servant but also the finding of a straight and honest man who is willing to follow leads wherever they should lead, and able to discern truth from obfuscations, but also having the intelligence to find the minutia and the obscured and from then piece together the whole cloth from which they were severed and torn in an attempt to keep any investigator chasing their tail in circles made of smoke, mirrors and the fog of concealment mixed with the confusion intended to dizzy even the straightest of men such that no one could conceivably make sense and rooting the truth whence it was buried. One need be intelligent and stalwart with a singularity of purpose to complete the task for which Alberto Nisman was murdered. Unfortunately, the powers that be are more likely to seek the Argentine version of Chief Inspector Jacques Clouseau than they are Sherlock Holmes or better yet, another Alberto Nisman, the best choice of all.
