Les politiciens se taisent et les médias n’osent pas trop lever la voix quand Colin Powell mentionne les « 200 bombes nucléaires » qu’Israël garde « pointées vers l’Iran ».

On comprend aisément que Powell puisse en avoir gros sur le coeur depuis qu’il a servi injustement de bouc émissaire dans le scandale des mensonges de l’administration Bush au sujet des prétendues « armes de destruction massive » irakiennes…

Ce genre d’aveu semble indiquer le début de la fin du mutisme américain concernant les capacités nucléaires israéliennes.

Powell wrote:

Negotiators can’t get what he wants. Anyway, Iranians can’t use one if they finally make one. The boys in Tehran know Israel has 200, all targeted on Tehran, and we have thousands. As Akmdinijad (sic) [said], “What would we do with one, polish it?” I have spoken publicly about both nK and Iran. We’ll blow up the only thing they care about—regime survival. Where, how would they even test one?

Neo-conservatives have not made many inroads at the State Department, except for John Bolton, an American Enterprise Institute hawk and Israeli proponent who is said to have been forced on a reluctant Colin Powell as undersecretary for arms control. Bolton’s special assistant is David Wurmser, who wrote and/or co-authored with Perle and Feith at least two strategy papers for Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu in 1996.(Michael Collins Piper, The High Priests of War, p.12)

Initially, Secretary of State Colin Powell seemed to be the one wellknown figure in the Bush administration who stood in the way of an American imperial policy hinging on a war against Iraq. Joined by the military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff in urging a cautious approach to the crisis, Powell was being confronted inside the Bush administration by a tightly-knit group of hard-driving warmongers trying to run roughshod over the administration’s stated policy and determined to subvert it for their own ends. (Michael Collins Piper, The High Priests of War, p.21)

However, the Post pointed out: “High level civilians in the White House and Pentagon vehemently disagree.” Those un-named “high-level” civilians were the neo-conservative warhawks such as Perle and his longtime associate and closest ally inside the Bush administration, Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz and his lieutenant, Douglas Feith. The Washington Post also reported that while “active duty members of the military have not publicly questioned the direction of Bush’s Iraq policy [in] private some are very doubtful about it.” The Post added:

Retired officers and experts who stay in touch with the top brass, and are free to say what those on active duty cannot, are more outspoken in supporting the containment policy and questioning the administration’s apparent determination to abandon it.(80)

Secretary of State Colin Powell—who served two tours of combat duty in Vietnam—was, in fact, initially aligned with the military brass in opposition to the Iraq war. Quite notably, General Tommy Franks—who ultimately led the American war against Iraq—also opposed the war. (Michael Collins Piper, The High Priests of War, p.49)

Les néocons avaient peur que Colin Powell ne suive pas leur plan… ils l’ont non seulement forcé à se soumettre, ils ont fait de lui le porte-étendard et le bouc émissaire de ce plan !

Dawdling Diplomacy Emboldens Terrorists By  RON RUBIN FORWARD (Feb 28, 2003) « In politics, as in life, everything is in the timing. Yet the administration’s haggling with the U.N. Security Council over resolutions and its hectoring of the hapless inspectors serve both to embolden Saddam and those opinion elites who sanctimoniously reach for the moral high ground in covering up for the Iraqi dictator. The administration, as identified with prevaricating Secretary of State Colin Powell, seems ill fitted to play the game of cold-blooded power politics. »

Cracks Emerge in Bush Foreign Policy, Defense Teams: Hawks Rallying Behind Rumsfeld To Limit Powell; `Soft Speech vs. Big Stick’  By STEPHEN SCHWARTZ  FORWARD STAFF (Jan 19, 2001) « Colin Powell, the man widely expected to dominate Bush administration foreign policy, appears headed instead into a hornets’ nest of ideological and bureaucratic infighting, according to a growing chorus of well-placed transition-watchers. Observers say he will face an early challenge for dominance from administration conservatives grouped around Defense Secretary-designate Donald Rumsfeld. »
