Ex-U.N. inspector: U.S. already at war with Iran

By ANITA FRITZ

http://www.recorder.com

DEERFIELD - A former weapons inspector told a full house Thursday that the United States is already at war with Iran and has become a terrorist state itself, referring to bombings in Iraq and the CIA's collaborations with the terrorist organization Mujahedin-e Khalq.

Almost 100 people gathered at Traprock Peace Center at Woolman Hill to hear Scott Ritter, the former United Nations weapons inspector, talk about U.S. intentions concerning Iran and what citizens can do now to stop another war.

An historical second-round election runoff for Iran's next president was under way as Ritter spoke.

He said the U.S. has defiled its reputation by engaging in the same tactics in Iraq and Iran as the terrorists it chases. "We declared a war on terror and those who practice terror," said Ritter. "Are we going to declare war on ourselves?"

Ritter said the United States has been conducting secret reconnaissance missions inside Iran since last summer. He said people would be stunned to know that the U.S. is at war with Iran. "There hasn't been a national debate and the president hasn't declared war."

He said it all sounds very familiar. "The war in Iraq began in September of 2002, not March of 2003 like most would think," said Ritter. "And the Bush administration fabricated intelligence to back up its decision to go to war. Later, it manipulated the results of Iraq's elections," he said.

"We're being told a lot of lies and the media is following blindly and parroting information," said Ritter.

He said the Bush administration's goal for Iran is the destruction of the country's alleged program to develop nuclear weapons. Ritter said he believes the goal is to attack the oil-rich nation with the hopes of leading to a regime change as in Iraq.

Ritter said Iran has a nuclear energy program, not a nuclear weapons program as the administration would like Americans to believe.

"They just want to live like we do," said Ritter. "In order to survive, Iran needs an alternative energy supply. Who are we to say they can't have that?"

Ritter said the president and his administration know it's an energy program.

"The media knows it as well and I'm just afraid that two or three years from now, when the truth comes out, the media will say it's old news. It's not newsworthy," he said.

"This kind of information gets buried on page A21. However, the runaway bride will never go away. She's been branded in the mindset of America," he said.

Ritter told people they need to acknowledge and accept that the battle to stop the war has been lost and the United States will pay a heavy price.

"This is our Pearl Harbor. The U.S. has taken a big hit and it's going to take a long time to dig out."

He said the peace movement needs to go back to the grass-roots level. "You all need to help teach people what it means to be an American," said Ritter. "As Americans we've sworn an oath of allegiance to the Constitution. Most don't even know what the document means and the current administration is dismissive of it."

Ritter said people have to become true citizens and hold the president and his administration accountable for not following the Constitution.

"(The effects of war) is going to be a decades-long struggle for America," said Ritter. "We may be called the United States in years to come, but if we don't do something about educating ourselves, we won't really be the United States according to that document," he said.

"I wouldn't give my life for this and I wouldn't expect anyone else to," said Ritter.
