IRAN LAUNCHES MAJOR AIR DEFENCE DRILL SIMULATING WAR IN GULF

SOURCE: MIDDLE EAST MONITOR

The Iranian armed forces today launched a major air defence drill codenamed “Guardians of Velayat’s Sky-98” in the northeastern province of Semnan, local media reported.

Air Defence Brigadier General Alireza Sabahifard said yesterday that the manoeuvres were being held across an area of some 416,000 square kilometres and will simulate a conflict in the Gulf, especially over the Strait of Hormuz.

“If the enemy intends to invade, attack or even infringe on our country’s skyline, which is one of our red lines, we can deal with it,” he said.

The manoeuvres come as tensions between Iran and the United States and Saudi Arabia persist in the Gulf region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looking at the overt hostility against the Iranian government, and Syria, can one blame the Iranian government for doing these defensive drills?!/

The short answer is, "HELL, no!!"

Allegedly Iranian targets in Syria have been hit by Israel, right outside of Damascus last Tuesday:

Israel carries out ‘wide-scale strikes’ on Iranian forces in Syria

The Iranian leadership may be many things, but one of them is NOT stupid; they believe they know what is coming, and they are probably correct in that assessment. The question is, when.

I am also deeply concerned about the timing of the deployment of 3,000 more US troops to Saudi Arabia.

One of the most uniquely iconic American holiday is coming up next week, and that is our Thanksgiving celebration; I would't put it past Israel's IDF and/or Shin Beit, to be "cooking up" a little false flag, where Americans or American assets are hit intensely, and then off the US military goes, creating more "hot war " in Syria, and against Iran.

Russia has already been assisting Syria in battling US trained, funded, and armed Jihadis who have attempted to regime-change Syria; and please remember what the Russian government has told the Iranian government earlier this year; Iran won't be alone, if the US attacks

When a Russian official makes that kind of promise, diplomatically, you can absolutely bet that such a promise is iron-clad, in terms of Russia following through on it.

And to those who eyeball this site for all the Alphabet Soup agencies out there; (and you know who you are!! :-)); the Pentagon; State Department; and the White House, I would politely, but strongly caution this government, that an attempted decap strike against either Tehran or Damascus, would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing this country could do right now, and primarily because of Russia's war capacities we do cannot match at the moment.

We do not conscript (Russia does; Conscription in Russia)); they unfortunately have some absolutely kick-ass weapons (to which our weapons designers are frantically attempting to catch up; we don't have the manufacturing; and at a Federal Deficit of approximately $ 1 trillion dollars, and rising Explainer: What you should know about federal deficits, a war with Iran and Syria will almost inextricably mean war with Russia.
