US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney (L) shakes hands with Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in al-Quds (Jerusalem), July 29, 2012.
A military analyst says the Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney is selling “American blood” to Zionist criminals by expressing support for an Israeli military strike against the Islamic Republic.
In an article written on the Press TV website, Gordon Duff said Romney was groveling to the “organized crime groups operating through Israel’s Likudist party, dominated by the Koch Brothers; American gasoline speculators; [Casino boss] Sheldon Adelson, whose reputation would fill volumes, and Rupert Murdoch, whose spy organization is now proven to have blackmailed three consecutive British governments.”
“Romney has found the ‘mother of all causes’, selling the promise of an American war, fought by Americans, financed by Americans, American dead, American blood, American collapse; a war demanded by, not Jews of the world but by organized crime groups.”
The US presidential hopeful travelled to Israel on July 28 on the second leg of a three-country tour that began in London, designed to shore up his foreign-policy credentials abroad and woo Jewish voters at home.
In an interview with the Israeli newspaper Haaretz
days prior to his visit, Romney had said, “We will employ every means short of military power. We recognize that if all means are exhausted and fail, a military option will have to be considered.”
The US and Israel have repeatedly threatened Tehran with a military strike to force it to halt its nuclear energy program, claimed by the duo to have been directed towards the acquisition of military nuclear capability.
Iran, however, has dismissed the allegation and the threats, pledging a crushing response to any attack on its soil.
Duff noted that Romney returned from his overseas trip with USD 60 million dollars collected in Israel and Britain while accompanied by Adelson, whose Las Vegas and China organizations have long been reputed to be “the center of worldwide organized crime.”
The analyst stated that the key to Romney’s financial successes is his “lifelong history of working closely with organized crime.”
“Now drowning in illegal cash, much from London bankers, his most interesting catch was the private dinner he shared with the Tel Aviv ‘blood diamond’ smugglers who donated up to $25 million dollars in one night.”
He added that Romney’s investment company, Bain, was funded initially by cash infusion from El Salvador death squads many years ago and these investors “are still at his side despite charges of mass murder and corruption.”
“Bain Capital is Romney’s money laundering and tax avoidance company with thousands of secret bank accounts in ‘safe havens’ around the world, invisible billions, hidden transactions, unseen profits and unseen ‘clients’,” Duff said.
“The business, gambling, drugs, prostitution, money laundering and now war, is seeking its own president and war on Iran is the only issue driving the American campaign.”
