Seymour Hersh has recently written an article that gives a chilling account of the Bush administration’s efforts to get the Pentagon to go along with its war plans for Iraq.


The article contends that Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld are leading a Bush administration effort to pressure a reluctant Pentagon to go along with their Iran policy which involves the preemptive use of tactical nuclear weapons.


Hersh writes:

"that the idea of using tactical nuclear weapons in such situations has gained support from the Defense Science Board, an advisory panel whose members are selected by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld."

According to one of Hersh’s sources the Defense Science Board is,

"telling the Pentagon that we can build the B61 [tactical nuclear weapon] with more blast and less radiation," he said.

Hersh’s describes that the chairman of the Defense Science Board, William Schneider, Jr., "served on an ad-hoc panel on nuclear forces sponsored by the National Institute for Public Policy."


According to Hersh, the panel’s report recommended treating tactical nuclear weapons as an essential part of the U.S. arsenal and noted their suitability,

"for those occasions when the certain and prompt destruction of high priority targets is essential and beyond the promise of conventional weapons."

Several signers of the report are now prominent members of the Bush Administration, including Stephen Hadley, the national-security adviser; Stephen Cambone, the Under-Secretary of Defense for Intelligence; and Robert Joseph, the Under-Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security.

It’s clear from Hersh’s article that Cheney and Rumsfeld are committed to launching this war with the same kind of determination that they used to carry the day for the preemptive war against Iraq. Again, they are using a range of panel recommendations and personnel supporting the preemptive military action as a policy option to overwhelm skeptics in the Pentagon.


Cheney and Rumsfeld obviously haven’t learned the lesson about the danger of preemptive military actions, and now want the Pentagon to authorize another preemptive action. The difference with Iraq would be that the Iran military action would require the preemptive use of tactical nuclear weapons in destroying Iran’s underground nuclear facilities.


According to Hersh:

"conventional weapons in the American arsenal could not insure the destruction of facilities under seventy-five feet of earth and rock, especially if they are reinforced with concrete."

This has been used by Cheney and Rumsfeld to argue that tactical nuclear weapons are necessary.

I suspect that the scheduled June 2 test of a massive ’conventional’ bomb that will generate a mushroom cloud, is in fact a test for the eventual use of a tactical nuclear weapon designed to destroy underground facilities. Here is how one journalist describes the test:

"Mushroom clouds are commonly associated with nuclear blasts, but this cloud will come from the detonation of a 700-ton explosive charge designed to test new bunker-busting technologies"

The Bush administration likely plans to advertise the June test as a new ’conventional’ weapon, that generates a mushroom cloud while destroying underground facilities.


Consequently, preemptive nuclear strike against Iran’s underground facilities could be marketed to a skeptical American and global public as a series of ’new’ conventional weapons being used rather than tactical nuclear weapons. The Bush administration could argue that the mushroom clouds generated by the new conventional ’bunker busting’ weapons are not due to them being nuclear weapons, and any radioactive fallout was ’proof’ that the bunker busting bomb had in fact destroyed a nuclear facility.

The preemptive use of tactical nuclear weapons would unleash a devastating nuclear war that would be catastrophic for the region and the globe in every respect. According to a Hersh and one of his sources, the Pentagon’s Joint Chiefs of Staff are resisting these plans and there have been threats of high level resignations:

The attention given to the nuclear option has created serious misgivings inside the offices of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, he added, and some officers have talked about resigning. Late this winter, the Joint Chiefs of Staff sought to remove the nuclear option from the evolving war plans for Iran-without success, the former intelligence official said. "The White House said, ’Why are you challenging this? The option came from you.’"

The resistance from the Joint Chiefs of Staff may not be enough to prevent the Cheney/Rumsfeld push for a preemptive nuclear war in Iran.


That takes me to discussing the exopolitical political implications of a preemptive nuclear war in Iran.



Exopolitical Implications of Preemptive Nuclear War

To begin, I invite the reader to take a look at a French researcher, Eric Julien’s (aka Jean Ederman’s) article on the relationship between nuclear weapons tests and UFO sightings.


In the article titled, "Are We a Security Threat to Extraterrestrial Civilizations?" Julien makes a cogent case that the use of nuclear weapons affects the time/space continuum in ways that disrupt UFO/extraterrestrial navigation and propulsion systems.


Hence the frequency of UFO crashes around nuclear tests which he discusses in terms of 74 alleged UFO crashes documented in Ryan Wood’s book, Majic Eyes Only (2006). In his book, The Science of Extraterrestrials, published in France and soon to be published in the US (for details see:, he argues that an "atomic explosion is a foray into the space-time continuum that they occupy!" This suggests that use of nuclear weapons threaten the civilizations of extraterrestrials whose space-time density is close to our own.

Consequently, the use of nuclear weapons is a threat to extraterrestrial civilizations and can provoke a devastating retaliatory strike against the planet due to our irresponsible use of nuclear technology.


Based on his analysis of UFO sightings/crashes and nuclear tests, Julien argues that,

"we are a threat to extraterrestrials and they are not likely to accept the use of nuclear weapons. Any war that sparks nuclear confrontation such as Iran might trigger an extraterrestrial response against humanity."

If Julien is correct with his analysis of the threat posed by nuclear weapons to extraterrestrial civilizations, what does this suggest about the means used by extraterrestrial civilizations to respond to a possible threat posed by humanity?


Presumably extraterrestrials would give warnings through their communications with individuals and government officials in their various interactions. If these warnings went unheeded then extraterrestrials would be forced to take a range of defensive measures based on their influence over policy makers and key institutions. Such measures could culminate in a coordinated number of extraterrestrial responses to prevent the Bush administration launching a preemptive nuclear war. Presumably, such responses could seriously undermine human sovereignty and freedom.

In conclusion, Julien’s research on the threat posed by nuclear weapons to extraterrestrials points to the urgency of encouraging those who have any influence in the policy making process to stop the Bush administration drive towards authorizing a preemptive nuclear attack against Iran. Hersh has done an important service in informing the general public as to how real the prospect is that the Bush administration will authorize the preemptive use of nuclear weapons.


As to the ultimate loyalty and agenda of Cheney and Rumsfeld who are the principle architects of this preemptive nuclear policy, I believe it highly likely that they are assets of forces whose agendas are antithetical to human freedom and sovereignty. I think the time has come for Cheney and Rumsfeld to be immediately removed from their respective political offices by public officials who understand the true dangers posed by a preemptive nuclear war in Iran and how this threatens extraterrestrial civilizations.


The link between world peace and extraterrestrial civilizations becomes clearer as we appreciate the true nature of the relationship between extraterrestrials and nuclear weapons
