Why have they decided to "release" these particular documents, except to prove to the Arab world why America really invaded Iraq, in order to foment further unrest, terrorism and war, to accomplish what they planned in 1973 and in the process bring about Armageddon?

1 January 2004 U. S. Plans to invade Middle East and directly control oil go back a long time

"We have to face the fact that the American action has done immense harm, I believe, both in this country and worldwide." Edward Heath British Prime Minister, 1973

MID-EAST REALITIES - MER - www. MiddleEast. Org - Washington - 1 January 2004:

What happened on 11 September 2001, and what happened subsequently leading to the American invasion/occupation of the central country in the Middle East in 2003, started many decades ago and remains obscured and hidden in secret files and forgotten history. A few days ago we strongly recommended the new edition just published of David Hirst's classic THEGUN AND THE OLIVE BRANCH - The Roots of Violence in the Middle East. First published in 1977, and now with an excellent 100+ page "Forward to the Third Edition", this book should be considered must reading, especially for the younger generation so terribly propagandized by CNN, the PBS 'News Hour', and so much government propaganda and dis-mis-information.

Now we learn this first day of the new year 2004, also from the British, that American plans to invade the Middle East, occupy the area for its oil, and together with Israel try to both control and shape the region by direct military force and neo-colonialist modern-day-imperialist means, go back many decades. That was the era of Henry Kissinger, the 'nuclear alert', and the origins of 'shuttle diplomacy'. It was the birthtime of today's Zionist neo-cons who dominate the Pentagon, Congress, and Washington affairs. It was also the era of the Cold War and the nuclear 'balance of terror' -- the likely reasons the American invasion did not take place at that time, as today's Associated Press article only begins to reveal now 30 years down the road.


LONDON (AP - 1 January 2004) - British spy chiefs warned after the 1973 Arab-Israeli war that they believed the United States might invade Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Abu Dhabi to seize their oil fields, according to records released Thursday.

A British intelligence committee report from December 1973 said America was so angry over Arab nations' earlier decision to cut oil production and impose an embargo on the United States that seizing oil-producing areas in the region was "the possibility uppermost in American thinking."

Details of the Joint Intelligence Committee report were released under rules requiring that some secret documents be made public after 30 years. The report suggested that then-President Nixon might risk such a drastic move if Arab-Israeli fighting reignited and the oil-producing nations imposed new restrictions.

The 1973 embargo and production cuts, used by oil-rich Arab nations as a means to pressure the United States and Western Europe, caused a major global energy crisis and sent oil prices skyrocketing.

The committee of intelligence service directors calculated that the United States could guarantee sufficient oil supplies for themselves and their allies by taking oil fields in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Abu Dhabi, with total reserves of more than 28 billion tons.

It warned however that the American occupation would need to last 10 years, as western nations developed alternative energy sources, and would lead to the "total alienation" of Arab states and many developing countries, as well as "domestic dissension" in the United States.

Other records released Thursday showed that Prime Minister Edward Heath was furious at Nixon over the American president's failure to tell him he was putting U. S. forces on a worldwide alert during the 1973 Arab-Israeli war.

Heath learned of the alert - considered a high point in Cold War tensions - from news reports while he waited in the House of Commons for Foreign Secretary Alec Douglas-Home to make a statement on the Middle East crisis.

Britain's intelligence listening post, Government Communications Headquarters, had learned of the alert but did not tell Heath's office or the Foreign Office because officials assumed Heath and Douglas-Home already knew about it, the papers showed.

Nixon said he put U. S. troops on high alert for just under a week, starting on Oct. 25, 1973, to show the Soviet Union that America would not allow it to send military forces to aid Arab states fighting Israel.

The alert covered U. S. forces stationed in Britain, and Heath wrote in a memo that he thought Nixon's move, which came in the midst of the Watergate scandal, had been deeply damaging.

"Personally I fail to see how any initiative, threatened or real, by the Soviet leadership required such a world wide nuclear alert," the prime minister wrote. "We have to face the fact that the American action has done immense harm, I believe, both in this country and worldwide."
