“The Iranian regime’s aggression in the region including
their use of proxy fighters to destabilize its neighbors must
end and it must end now!”
— President Donald J. Trump
President Trump’s former National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster once said that “there are basically two ways to fight the United States, asymmetrically and stupid.” We know the disparities between Iran and the U.S. are immense but how much do we really know about Iran’s full capability?
One thing we do know is that Iran is a much graver threat than Iraq, possessing updated Russian missile defense systems and other weapons the Pentagon knows nothing about. Iraq had no powerful allies that gave the US pause when George Bush “The Dumber” made the horrible decision to invade their country and look how great that turned out.
Iran, on the other hand, has many allies in the region and recently participated in war games with powerful allies Russia and China. It’s amazing to me that I didn’t hear a single Democrat or Republican political pundit all weekend that even mention that fact!
The Russians and the Chinese were happy to sit back and watch the US waste lives and treasure on a fool’s mission in Iraq and Afghanistan based on a mountain of bogus and deceitful intelligence we received from Israel. I don’t see them sitting this one out. Didn’t we get our intelligence from Israel on this latest operation? Isn’t it suspicious to anyone in the country that we get all of our Middle East intelligence from a country that has been trying desperately to persuade the US to bomb Iran for well over 2 decades?
This airstrikes in Iraq reminds me of the airstrikes on Syria after the false flag gas attack in Douma that was falsely blamed on Assad’s Syrian Army. Despite denials from Assad and calls for an investigation by Russia and others, Trump ordered a missile strike sending 59 Tomahawks into a Syrian airport that destroyed a few planes and killed 9 civilians. Trump’s teaching moment in Syria may have been more effective had it not already been known that the U.S. and Israeli-controlled terrorists also possessed chemical weapons.
That, and the fact that Russia wasn’t buying it either, and since Russia and China are both allied with Syria, allowed cooler heads to prevail. My guess is whoever talked Trump into the Syrian missile attack was likely the person or persons that talked him into this attack in Iraq.
The biggest difference is this series of strikes killed an Iranian General, Quasem Soleimani, the leader of the Iranian fighters outside of Iran called the Quds force. Since the bombing, stories are making the rounds about what a bad guy Soleimani was. One that several have repeated is that he was responsible for the deaths of over 600 American soldiers.
Gareth Porter, the author of “Manufactured Crisis: The Untold Story Of The Iran Nuclear Scare” wrote, “Propaganda floated by former Vice President Dick Cheney over a decade ago to justify his push for war against Iran has been revived by the Trump Administration. The media run with this old propaganda and continues to recklessly report this misinformation as truth.”
Porter points out that the claims that Soleimani is responsible for the deaths of over 600 U.S. servicemen have been debunked many years ago and recently Navy Commander Sean Robertson acknowledged that the Pentagon has no documentation or data to support such a claim. That certainly didn’t stop an army of pundits led by Sean “No bomb Sean” Hannity to repeat this lie over and over through the weekend.
It reminds me of when we were told that Iraqi soldiers stormed a hospital in Kuwait to steal equipment including incubators for newborn babies, to be shipped to Iraq. It was reported that if the incubators were occupied, the baby was thrown to the floor. It was later determined that this was merely a propaganda stunt to garner support for George H.W. Bush’s unnecessary invasion of Iraq.
Targeting foreign government officials sets a dangerous precedent and may put targets on the backs of U.S. Politicians and other senior U.S. officials. The only government that currently targets foreign leaders, that I’m aware of, is Israel! These cable news pundits applauding this attack seem to have forgotten that it has been US/Israel policy which has blown up the Middle East since 9/11. The Jerusalem Post reported that Israel armed and funded at least 12 Islamic rebel groups in Syria fighting a proxy war for the U.S. and Israel against Assad’s troops.
They don’t talk about Hillary’s gun-running operation for terrorists in Libya that culminated in the killing of Muammar Gaddafi and the deaths of four Americans, including the Ambassador Chris Stevens, in the disaster in Benghazi. And the worst of them are the pundits who have yet to apologize for cheerleading George W. Bush’s horrible decision to invade Iraq, and are cheering this military strike as vital and necessary. As I write this, the U.S. is arming and enabling Saudi Arabia to annihilate the population of Yemen and the media won’t even talk about it.
Trump said Friday “the people of the Middle East will have to decide what kind of future they want for themselves, for their country and frankly for their families and for their children”. What the hell does that mean? Most of these people have been dodging bullets from US soldiers or the US-paid mercenaries and terrorists their entire lives and praying that a bomb from an American jet or drone doesn’t blow up their home with their entire family inside. Trump said their future is up to them? What a ridiculous thing to say!
Fox News reported that during the Kenyan’s 8-year reign of terror he ordered 563 drone strikes, 10 times more than the insane Bush 43. It’s hard to believe he had so much time to scold us and tell us how disappointed he and Michele were that we were clinging to our guns and religion.
Senator Rand Paul got it right when he said, “without a declaration of war, without Congress and the American people behind it, what you get is a messy mission. You get a mission of intermittent violence but it really has no purpose or plan. The President says he doesn’t want perpetual war but he’s sending more troops. If you don’t want perpetual war stop sending more troops.”
Trump is now saying he may target cultural sites in Iran, which is just despicable! Does anyone else notice that Trump’s foreign dealings look more like Israel’s every day? Western-backed ISIS terrorists targeted cultural sites in Syria and our government has never told us what happened to the priceless artifacts that were looted from Iraqi museums by the U.S. Army shortly after the invasion of Iraq began.
I’ve heard “Rapture Mike” Pompeo is going to run for a Senate seat soon and hopes to have financial support from Jewish billionaire and dual US-Israeli citizen Sheldon Adelson, the casino magnate that was Trump’s biggest donor in 2016. Pompeo spent a lot of time with the embattled Bibi Netanyahu scheming and plotting; could this be something they cooked up together with Jared Kushner?
Haaretz Daily in Israel reported that, in 2013, Adelson boldly proclaimed that he wanted the U.S. to drop an Atomic Bomb on Iran. He said dropping a bomb and likely killing millions of people would be a “tremendous demonstration of American strength”; then he said, “negotiations and dialogue are a sign of weakness”. Adelson, the political kingmaker in America, has said that he wished he’d served in the Israeli army instead of the U.S. Army. What a patriot, huh. Again, this was Trump’s biggest donor! These are the people selecting our politicians with their dirty money.
I saw John Bolton was pleased; that should give everyone pause. Bolton, of course, was instrumental in the planning of the Iraq invasion for Bibi Netanyahu. The report called “A Clean Break” was put together by Bolton’s pals at “The Project For A New American Century”—a Neo-Con and Zionist think tank that planned the war for Israel that intended for Americans to fight. Then they lied through their teeth to get their war started.
If you’re going to talk about Iraq, you have to know our history in Iraq. Let’s face it: most people are getting their news from networks that are still reporting that Osama bin Laden was behind 9/11. Former Marine, former West Point instructor and the Director of Studies at the Army War College on 9/11 — Dr. Alan Sabrosky — says he is certain Israel was behind 9/11 and also says the military knows.
The BIG question this weekend was whether Iraq would order U.S. troops from the country, which they did Saturday. The other big question I have is will we leave if so ordered? The truth is, Iraq has ordered the US troops out of their country umpteen times in the last 10 years and at least 3 times in the last year.
I was an early supporter of Trump because of his stance on illegal immigration and his plan to build a border wall, but the sad reality is we are still bringing in over a million legal immigrants and we welcome 72,000 “Anchor Babies” every year who will use the “Chain Migration” clause in our ludicrous immigration laws to bring their entire families here.
I was especially annoyed to see a report from Tucker Carlson that 18 Republican Governors betrayed their constituency and have agreed to take in more Christian-hating Muslim refugees for settlement than they were asked to take in. These refugees are similar to the Muslims that are turning European countries into combat zones with violent crime rates soaring. Who is behind this immigration invasion? I recommend that, if this bothers you, call your Governor and let him know.
Another reason I voted for Trump is he said he would get us out of Middle East entanglements. He didn’t say, “except the ones involving Israel”. I don’t know a single person that cared one bit that he moved the embassy to Jerusalem or about his Presidential proclamation formally recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights and the West Bank, which he had no right to do and which have caused increased violence against innocent Palestinians. The only thing he hasn’t done is to start a new war with Iran.
State of the Nation recently reported via “Israel Today News” that a high-level source in the White House confirmed that Donald Trump converted to Judaism 2 years ago and joined the Chabad Lubavitch Synagogue in Manhattan.
While “Rapture Mike” is on a countdown to Armageddon waiting for Jesus to return, the Chabad Jews that surround Trump are waiting for Moshiach, the Jewish Messiah who will reinstate the royal Davidic line and restore the Promised Land. It’s what the “Greater Israel Project” is all about, more land and more treasure regardless of the current owners.
Americans don’t want another war for Israel, Mr. Adelson!
When our controllers lie about the reasons for war, it’s a good bet they are lying about everything else. In 2019, we found out that our FBI, CIA, Department Of Justice, and State Department officials at the highest levels were completely corrupt and the system is still broken. If Trump doesn’t want war he should fire the Neo-Cons who surround him, including son-in-law Jared Kushner and, if true, come clean about his conversion.
It would explain a lot!
