Israeli attack on Iran would have nightmare global consequences — a thriller explains

This is the greatest pleasure of a thriller published this summer, in which a former intelligence analyst imagines what happens when Israel attacks Iran with well-laid plans, and a global humanitarian and environmental nightmare, and near-world-war, ensue. The book puts the lie to such cheerleading.

Axis of Resistance.The West and its Allies Support al Qaeda and ISIS Globally

The real Axis of Evil consists of Washington-led NATO and its allies. The magnitude of the human and environmental catastrophe is unimaginable in scope. Western governments and their agencies send strong delusion to North Americans, who remain largely ignorant to the reality of the catastrophe being committed in their names.

The Western War Of Terror, to which our governments remain committed, loots public treasuries to commit and sustain an overseas holocaust, wherein the West and its agencies support, command and control the very same terrorism that they proclaim to be fighting.

ISIS terrorists are fighting alongside the Turkish regime forces in Syria

The TV channel asserted that ISIS terrorists are fighting alongside the Turkish regime against Syrian people. It pointed out that the SDF militia abandoned its task of guarding ISIS terrorists held in prisons in the northeast of Syria.

In addition, Over 700 people ran away from Ain Issa camp towards the Turkish border.

Iran: Looking Towards a Bright Future

Iran is a modern society with an ancient history. Together with China it is one of the world’s oldest continuous civilizations. For centuries it was the center of an ancient and vibrant culture, that can trace its origins back at least 7000 years before the Christian era.

A knowledge of and understanding of this proud and lengthy history is central to an appreciation of the stance taken by modern Iranian leaders to the imperialist ambitions of the United States whose post World War II presence in the West Asian region (the ‘middle east’ is an entirely European construct and his little geographical significance or meaning).

The Pentagon Threatening to Revive ISIS

ISIS and the Pentagon Coincidences: Do you believe in coincidences? If you do, at which number of repetitive coincidences you’ll start to see a pattern and even worse: a plot?

Former top al-Qaeda commander said: ISIS is the creation of the USA, just like how it created al-Qaeda before. This insider reported that the US released al Baghdadi from an Iraqi jail, gave him $20 – $30 million and helped with military training camps in Jordan. Here’s his interview about this from more than 5 years ago:

Erdogan wants to gain some permanent hegemony over large parts of northern Syria: Tim Anderson

On Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s objectives, Dr. Anderson said, “Erdogan’s goal seems to be to gain (or retain) some permanent hegemony over large parts of northern Syria, making use of a mixture of Syrians and international salafists who support his Muslim Brotherhood party in Turkey; and using as a target the pretext of what he sees as a PKK base across the border.”

The following is the full transcript of the interview:

U.S. HAS SPENT SIX TRILLION DOLLARS ON WARS THAT KILLED HALF A MILLION PEOPLE SINCE 9/11, REPORT SAYS

The United States has spent nearly $6 trillion on wars that directly contributed to the deaths of around 500,000 peoplesince the 9/11 attacks of 2001.

Brown University's Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs published its annual "Costs of War" report Wednesday.

The final count revealed, "The United States has appropriated and is obligated to spend an estimated $5.9 trillion (in current dollars) on the war on terror through Fiscal Year 2019, including direct war and war-related spending and obligations for future spending on post 9/11 war veterans."

Empire Uses Kurds as Pawns in its Imperial Pursuits in Syria

The situation in the North East of Syria regarding the Kurds seems to be a topic of confusion for most. Understandably so as they have been made to appear by US politicians and news outlets as the most effective fighters against terrorism in Syria. Although they have in fact been successful in driving out terrorists in some areas there is information that needs to be discussed that explains the other half of the story that is purposely hidden in the Kurdish and mainstream media news outlets. We have only been hearing from the Kurdish side now it’s time for the Syrians in Kurdish held areas to have their chance to tell us about the hardships they have been put under by the Kurds.

The Myth of the Kurdish YPG’s Moral Excellence

It’s difficult to determine with precision how many Kurds are in Syria, but it’s clear that the ethnic group comprises only a small percentage of the Syrian population (less than 10 percent according to the CIA, and 8.5 percent according to an estimate cited by Nikolaos Van Dam in his book The Struggle for Power in Syria.

While the estimates are rough, it’s clear that Kurds make up a fairly small proportion of the Syrian population and that the number of the group’s members living in Syria as a proportion of the Kurd community as a whole is very small.

Erdogan's isis Cooperation

The heroic Syrian Arab Army and its allies have been fighting a fierce war against multi-national terrorists from all over the globe. The battle against isis was the fiercest.

With the ongoing invasion by Turkey- the main backer of terrorists in Syria- of many towns and villages in North and East Syria, many of isis members and cells were given a boost!

According to different news outlets, many isis terrorists have broken out of prisons in northern Syria after Turkish shelling

Turkey is recruiting and retraining isis terrorists to lead its invasion of Afrin in northern Syria, according to an ex-isis source.

“Most of those who are fighting in Afrin against the Syrian Kurds are isis, though Turkey has trained them to change their assault tactics,” said Faraj, a former isis fighter from north-east Syria who remains in close touch with isis.

Cannabis: A Lost History

Cannabis, better known as marijuana, has been used for its medicinal properties for thousands of years. Historical remnants from all around the world reveal the importance of cannabis in medicine and spirituality
The earliest written references to cannabis are found in the Chinese Materia Medica, written by Shen Nung around 2800 B.C. Nung documented 100 conditions that responded well to cannabis, including gout and rheumatism
For thousands of years, cannabis remained one of the 50 essential plants used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The Vedas, the sacred text of India, also lists cannabis as one of five sacred plants
The ancient Egyptians, Persians and Greeks also used cannabis in a variety of ways, including medicinally and for spiritual upliftment

A Generation Deleted: American Bombs in Yemen Are Costing an Entire Generation Their Future

SADAA, NORTHERN YEMEN — Third-grader Farah Abbas al-Halimi didn’t get the UNICEF backpack or textbook she was hoping for this year. Instead, she was given an advanced U.S bomb delivered on an F-16 courtesy of the Saudi Air Force. That bomb fell on Farah’s school on September 24 and killed Farah, two of her sisters, and her father who was working at the school. It will undoubtedly have an irrevocable effect on the safety and psyche of schoolchildren across the region.

Pompeo Can’t Blame Iran For Attacking Itself

This frantic coup to impeach Trump on phony nebulous charges didn't materialize until after Trump refused to attack Iran over the drone shootdown. This is payback from the same people who gave us 911....Israel!!!

The people squawking the loudest about the President’s recent policy decisions in the Middle East are the ones most likely behind this.

The most likely candidate is the one actor who has consistently overstepped its bounds in attacking neighbors it considers hostile for any reason. Israel.

If the neocons and Israeli Firsters in Congress (and formerly in his cabinet) have turned on Trump to the point of starting impeachment proceedings against him for not going to war with Iran, then Trump is free to finally just blow it all wide open.

Which is exactly what he is doing. The Kurds were simply mercenaries to help us defeat ISIS. Job’s done, your beef with Turkey is your problem.

Debunking the Putin and Netanyahu/Israel work together canard (final installment)

This will not be an analysis or even a commentary. Neither am I siding with, or expressing support for, the Turkish military operation in norther Syria. Finally, I am not discussing the legitimacy (or lack thereof) of the Kurdish Independence movement. All I propose to do here, is to draw your attention to a series of facts and logical imperatives which, in my opinion debunk and falsify the disinformation campaign aimed at convincing us that Putin and Netanyahu are working hand in glove or, even better, that Putin is a puppet of the Israelis. So, with that in mind, here we go:

Waging War on Iran Would Be Madness

All nations the US doesn’t control are on its target list for regime change, especially challengers to its hegemonic aims like China and Russia, along with oil rich ones like Iran and Venezuela.

That’s what US hostility toward these countries is all about, not because of a national security threat they pose — other than supporting multi-world polarity, conflicting with US hegemonic unipolar aims, a notion whose time has passed.

Iran can’t match US military power, but its capabilities can hit back hard against aggressors anywhere in the region.

Damascus vows to confront 'brutal' Turkish aggression by all legal means

“After his continuous support for terrorism in Syria, training, arming, protecting and sending terrorists to kill Syrians, the head of the Turkish regime came up today with statements that can only be made by a person detached from reality. He speaks of his commitment to protect Syrian people whilst he has the blood of the Syrian people killed by terrorists on his hands,” Syria’s official news agency SANA cited an unnamed source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates as saying in a statement on Thursday.

Ankara views the US-backed YPG as a terrorist organization tied to the homegrown Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) militant group, which has been seeking an autonomous Kurdish region in Turkey since 1984.

The YPG constitutes the backbone of the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an anti-Damascus alliance of predominantly Kurdish militants.

U.S. “Military Aid” to Al Qaeda, ISIS-Daesh

Author’s Note and Update

This article was first published by Global Research on October 2, 2016.

The United States and its allies use arms trafficking –i.e. the unregulated illicit trade in light weapons through private traders including organized crime–, to channel large amounts of weapons and ammunition to the terrorists inside Syria.

The US led coalition uses the illicit trade in light weaponry produced in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, China, etc. for delivery to rebel groups inside Syria, including ISIS-Daesh and Al Nusra. In turn, operating out of the occupied Golan Heights, Israel’s IDF has provided weapons, ammunition, logistical support to Al Qaeda rebels operating in Southern Syria.

Syrian gov’t rules out peace talks with Kurdish forces

Looks like The Kurds screwed themselves again.

“The armed factions betrayed their country and committed crimes against it. We will not accept dialogue with those who became hostages of foreign forces. There will not be any foothold for agents of Washington on Syrian soil,” Mikdad said.

In a video demonstration, the rovers are either single-use mines or armed with machine guns. They are shown being used as combined arms with flying multirotor scouts. Whatever the guts of the new rolling rovers, the ability to guide them remotely to targets spotted by drone adds to the range of threats small robots can pose to armored vehicles.

US cuts Turkey’s access to north-east Syria airspace ahead of military campaign

The United States (US) military has severely limited Turkey’s access to the airspace over north-east Syria, making the upcoming Turkish military operation into the area difficult without the benefit of air cover.

The US has taken a series of actions since yesterday which would potentially hinder the operation, with Pentagon spokeswoman Carla Gleason informing reporters that the Combined Air Operations Centre has removed Turkey from the anti-ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) coalition’s air tasking order, through which it coordinates the flights of member nations.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has deployed a large number of soldiers to the Deir Ezzor Governorate today as they prepare for a potential offensive east of the Euphrates.

According to an army source in Deir Ezzor, the Syrian military deployed several units, including personnel from the National Defense Forces (NDF), to front-lines with the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Russian jet allegedly stops Israeli warplane from bombing Syria

BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:10 P.M.) – Last night, a Russian jet intercepted an Israeli warplane that was preparing to bomb a site inside of Syria, the Gallifrey Technologies Telegram channel alleged, as reported by Avia.Pro.

Shortly after this claim, the Syrian Military Capabilities Twitter account, which often reports about air activity in Syria, said an Israeli attack was expected before Russian planes swarmed southern Syria.

Between Washington's rock & Ankara's hard place, Kurds had better choose Damascus

The Kurdish people should have never placed their fate in the hands of a far off and thoroughly unreliable US “ally” which has picked them up only to put them back on the shelf so many times before. Syrian Kurds belong to Syria and it is with their Syrian neighbours and government that the SDF should have been in alliance.

But if the US has no business in Syria neither does Turkey. Least of all killing Kurds.

The U.S. Navy Isn’t Ready to Take On Iran

Whatever lay behind the indecisive Trump administration response to the alleged Sept. 14 Iranian missile and drone strike on Saudi oil facilities, one thing is clear. The United States’ ability to project power into the Persian Gulf region via carrier strike groups, the go-to U.S. option in such situations for decades, is not what it used to be, nor what it might have been.

Oct 09 04:47

Iran, Israel and Destiny

Although Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu struggles to form a new government and tries valiantly to stay out of jail but he has managed to find the time to pledge to spend many more shekels. Finally, it dawned on Netanyahu that Israel lags Iran in an arms race.

Israel has seriously mismanaged its conflict with Iran. For over a decade, Israel has relentlessly threatened and sought to intimidate Iran. Iran’s response has been effective: slowly but surely Iran encircled the Jewish state. Israel doesn’t share a border with Iran but Iran is present on so many of Israel’s borders.

A conflict with Iran could have lethal consequences for Israel. Israeli military experts expect that such a conflict would subject Israel’s cities to attack by thousands of well-aimed missiles and result in total devastation.

SDF considering partnership with Assad to fight off Turkish invasion

With the Kurds coming back into the Syrian Fold,the Russian ability to bridge the Euphrates in 48 hours or less under fire demonstrated in 2017, SAM systems deployed near the Euphrates US troop deployment in eastern Syria will become untenable.

DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:35 P.M.) – The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) might go on an alliance with Syrian President Bashar Assad in order to repel the Turkish military in northern Syria.

“We are considering a partnership with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, with the aim of fighting Turkish forces”, the Commander-in-Chief of the Syrian Democratic Armed Forces, Mazlum Abdi, said.

This comes a few hours after US President Donald Trump announced withdrawal of US forces from northern Syria as Turkish military prepares full invasion.

“Frankly, this makes us disappointed. The decision harms Syrian trust in the United States and the credibility of the United States”, Abdi commented.

Syrian Kurds hint at possible talks with Damascus amid US troops withdrawal

This is the only choice Syrian Kurds have. A rapprochement with Syria. With the Kurds back in the Syrian fold US troop deployment will be untenable.

A top Kurdish official says the Kurdish forces controlling northern Syria may open talks with Damascus and Russia, after the United States announced it was withdrawing troops from the area in the wake of Ankara’s looming military operation against Kurdish militants from the People's Protection Units (YPG).

“If America vacates the area and especially the border area for certain we, as a self administration and as the SDF, will be forced to study all the available options,” Badran Jia Kurd told Reuters news agency on Tuesday.

The Truth About This "Independent Kurdistan": Criminal Israeli Foreign Ministry Spokesman States That Independent Kurdistan Will Be A "SECOND ISRAEL" Where Israel Can Weaken Russia And Iran!

Yes, today is the day when the formal announcement of an "Independent Kurdistan" is made and that bogus nation takes form in northern Iraq and very soon northern Syria as well.... I have said for the longest time that this is a HUGE mistake by the Kurds as they will foolishly play right into the sick and twisted game of the US-Israel criminal cabal.... It will only lead to more bloodshed in the entire region (which is exactly what the psychos in Israel want) and could lead to a mass genocide of the Kurdish people....

China’s ‘New Silk Road’ Vision Revealed

The Xinhua series promises the clearest look so far at China’s vision for its Silk Road Economic Belt as well as the Maritime Silk Road. One of the most intriguing pieces released Thursday was a map showing China’s ambitious visions for the “New Silk Road” and “New Maritime Silk Road.” It’s the clearest vision to date of the scope of China’s Silk Road plan.

According to the map, the land-based “New Silk Road” will begin in Xi’an in central China before stretching west through Lanzhou (Gansu province), Urumqi (Xinjiang), and Khorgas (Xinjiang), which is near the border with Kazakhstan.

Syria - Trump Gives A Green Light For Another Turkish Invasion

Erdogan wants to take a 30 kilometer deep strip including the M4 highway which runs west to east in that area.

But the border area Erdogan marked is quite populated with some 850,000 people living there. Most of them are Kurds.

There is only one solution for them. They will have to call up the Syrian government and ask it to come back into the north east. That would remove the Turkish concerns and would likely prevent further Turkish moves.

Russian army puts up bridge in record time to deploy heavy arms, aid across Euphrates

Damascus main forces are gearing up for a mass crossing of the Euphrates

DEIR EZ-ZOR /Syria/, September 26. /TASS/. Russian road service military experts have erected a bridge across the Euphrates River, a few kilometers away from Deir ez-Zor in northeastern Syria. It will be used to deploy military equipment and troops to the eastern river bank.

The bridge is 210 meters long. It can serve 8,000 cars a day. The bridge supports heavy armored vehicles, such as tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and multiple-launch rocket systems, Burovtsev said. The bridge will also be used for aid convoys to liberated communities and medical evacuations.

US gives green light to Turkey to launch military operation in north Syria

This is very big! With the Turks coming in from the Northeast,US troops being pulled out, the Russian built bridge across the Euphrates being able to handle 8,000 vehicles a day and Russia telling the US to get it's troops out of Syria this war may be over soon. We shall see!
Meanwhile the neocon traitors in the district of criminals and the wicked witch of Arkansas screaming blood murder that Trump is betraying our allies. The shit is hitting the fan politically! Big! Big! News day!

The United States has given the green light to Turkey to launch a military operation against Washington's long-time Kurdish allies in northern Syria.

The decision came after a phone conversation between US President Donald Trump and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday.

“Turkey will soon be moving forward with its long-planned operation into northern Syria,” the White House said in a statement.

The United States Armed Forces will not support or be involved in that operation, and the United States forces, having defeated the ISIS territorial ‘Caliphate,’ will no longer be in the immediate area.”

The statement does not make it clear if U.S. troops will fully withdraw from Syria or if they will just relocate. The statement also says, “Turkey will now be responsible for all ISIS fighters in the area captured over the past two years.”

Syrian war update: Russia builds bridge across the Euphrates

ALEXANDER MERCOURIS
Editor-in-Chief at The Duran.

The US proxy war against Russia in Syria is not being fought so much as it is being lost
In the complex three cornered fight for Deir Ezzor province in eastern Syria between the Russian backed Syrian army, the US backed Kurdish militia, and ISIS, the Russians and the Syrians have just taken a dramatic step to gain for themselves strategic dominance over the other two.

This takes the form of a bridge built apparently built under fire from ISIS in just two days by Russian engineers across the Euphrates river near the city of Deir Ezzor, which will make possible the sending of armoured units of the Syrian army across the Euphrates river to bring the fight against ISIS and conceivably the Kurdish militia to the territories they occupy on the river’s east bank.

THE US-IRAN SILENT WAR IS TRANSFORMED INTO AN “IRAQ UPRISING”

By Elijah J. Magnier:

The last four days have shown that the ongoing US-Iran war is acutely affecting the whole region. This is now evident in Iraq where more than 105 people have been killed and thousands wounded in the course of demonstrations that engulfed the capital Baghdad and southern Shia cities including Amara, Nasririyeh, Basrah, Najaf and Karbalaa. Similar demonstrations could erupt in Beirut and other Lebanese cities due to the similarity of economic conditions in the two countries. The critical economic situation in the Middle East offers fertile ground for uprisings that lead to general chaos.

Trump Cannot Be Anti-Globalist While Working With Global Elites

Early on I posted stories about Trump's bailout by the Rothschilds and Wilbur Ross. I posted stories about his profitable business dealings with George Soros. His connections to Israel and Jeffrey Epstein.
I decried him stuffing his cabinet with Globalist Swamp Critters. He has broken his promise on pulling back from all these wars. He has broken his promises on immigration. Hillary and Bill are still free and not indicted. I could go on and on. Sometimes it doesn't feel good to be right.

During the election it was unclear to me if Donald Trump was a puppet of the elites. He could have simply been a convenient scapegoat for the coming crash. Today, it is obvious that he is indeed controlled opposition.

Lebanese Paper Reveals US Plots for Hot Summer in Iraq, Baghdad's Measures to Counter

Just as I suspected. The US is not happy with Iraq over their friendship with Iran.

Security sources told the Arabic-language al-Akhbar newspaper that most people in the recent unrests in Iraq were peacefully shouting their demands while a number of others were after sabotage acts and suspicious plans to turn the scene into violence and chaos.

They added that the US plot to foment chaos in Iraq was disclosed to the intelligence bodies since three months ago, noting that Washington and its allies were due to organize protest rallies under the cover of popular demands and lead it towards unrests and then introduce a popular military commander to lead the so-called salvation government so that the US can strengthen its hegemony over Iraq.

US Stops U-2 Spy Planes' Flights after Iran's Missile Shield Starts Operation

"The US moves in the region are monitored every hour and for instance, the flights of the US U-2 planes which took off from Cyprus and flew twice over the region stopped after Iran made and operated Bavar 373 air defense system and after they found out that the system can trace and destroy them (the U-2 planes)," General Taqizadeh said, addressing a ceremony in Tehran on Saturday.

He added that Bavar 373 can intercept and destroy the most advanced US planes at the altitude of 27km and the range of 200km.

"Most US interests are within a distance of 220km from Iran and if they hit a blow to us, their interests will be attacked," General Taqizadeh said.

Axis of Resistance.The West and its Allies Support al Qaeda and ISIS Globally

The real Axis of Evil consists of Washington-led NATO and its allies. The magnitude of the human and environmental catastrophe is unimaginable in scope. Western governments and their agencies send strong delusion to North Americans, who remain largely ignorant to the reality of the catastrophe being committed in their names.

The Western War Of Terror, to which our governments remain committed, loots public treasuries to commit and sustain an overseas holocaust, wherein the West and its agencies support, command and control the very same terrorism that they proclaim to be fighting.

David Icke: Who Did 9/11 and Why? Part One of a Two-Part Interview

David Icke’s new book The Trigger really triggers some people…like The Washington Post‘s passive-aggressive book reviewer Ron Charles, who brags, shedding crocodile tears all the while: “I banned a book. Or at least I helped get it banned, which makes Banned Books Week a little awkward for me this year.”

If Icke is such a nut, and The Trigger is just “harebrained word vomit,” why would anyone—least of all a Washington Post book reviewer who pretends to hate censorship—feel the need to have it banned? The likely answer, of course, is that Charles knows or suspects, consciously or unconsciously, that Israel was behind 9/11.(1)

And why wouldn’t he? Even the most naive and cursory observer of 21st century geopolitics can see that Israel was the biggest beneficiary of 9/11, which brainwashed the whole world to hate Israel’s Muslim enemies, and hijacked the American military to attack and/or destroy nations that Israel considered a threat.

A brief, unhappy history of Israeli massacres

It would be nice to think that, as an Israeli officer once put it, “This time we went too far” — that the killings of 17 unarmed protesters in Gaza by Israeli riflers across a security fence on Friday would cause the world to sanction Israel for its conduct. But if you look over Israel’s history, you find that the massacre has been a ready tool in the Israeli war-chest; and Israelis have not been prosecuted for carrying them out. Indeed, a couple of those responsible later became prime minister!

Here, largely from my own memory, is a rapidly-assembled list of massacres, defined by Webster’s as the killing of a “number of usually helpless or unresisting human beings under circumstances of atrocity or cruelty” (and yes, a couple precede the birth of the state).

US-Saudi-Israeli alliance against Iran floundering in crisis: Haaretz

An anti-Iran alliance forged between the leaders of the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia is faltering as each have become overwhelmed by their own dilemmas, Israel's leading daily Haaretz reports.

“The three leaders who have led the anti-Iran line in recent years were each absorbed in his own domestic crisis this week,” Haaretz wrote on Thursday.

The Israeli paper pointed to the recently intensified impeachment inquiry surrounding US President Donald Trump and pre-indictment hearings threatening the tenure of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during the past week as signs that the two leaders were mired in crisis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The more the internal bickering continues in the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia, the less energy can be expended toward any kind of an alliance between the three countries and Israel against Iran.

Trump Administration Reignites War Against Syria

The neocons are not about to give up and admit defeat. Due primarily to Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah, the presence of the Islamic State is now considerably reduced in Syria.

This is, of course, unacceptable for the neocons and Trump’s State Department, so last week Sec. State Pompeo accused Syria once again of using chemical weapons.

There is no evidence this incident occurred. This is the case with all of the supposed chemical attacks in Syria.

From The Guardian, May 22, 2019.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So what is the White House's next step in this flummoxed, fluster-cluck of an accusation?!?

And to all people familiar with how this stuff works out there, who are also Rivero's Rangers; IF this actual attack happened last May, how reasonably long, please, before an incontrovertible verdict to come back as to whether, or whether this was not a use of chemical weapons?!?

So is DC going to decree that all Iranian ships be interdicted in the High Seas, for fear of carrying their oil to some other part of the world?!?

And would such action not be tantamount to a declaration of war against both Syria and Iran?!?

Folks, this is absolute madness, writ large.

Trump and Money Are Shielding Saudi Arabia From Accountability for Khashoggi's Killing

President Trump’s protection of Saudi Arabia is at best a temporary shield. Veterans, peace and human rights groups, and other interest groups have been pushing Congress to block U.S. military support for the kingdom by invoking provisions of the War Powers Resolution and making amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act. Human rights organizations also have pushed beneficiaries of Mohammed bin Salman’s private charity — among them the New York Public Library and the United Nations—to abandon their connection to the foundation, which the crown prince uses as a propaganda platform.

Yet, one year after Khashoggi’s killing, and 4 ½ years into the brutal Saudi-led intervention in Yemen, Congress and the president have yet to hold Saudi Arabia accountable. That cannot be allowed to stand. On the anniversary of Khashoggi’s murder, we owe it to him to stand up to the Saudi lobby and the president, and once and for all punish the Saudi government for what it has done.

The Strange Messages That Haunted The Saudi Consulate In Turkey Last October | A Dream

The messages all appeared at the Saudi consulate in ?stanbul, last year, seemingly without human intervention. Traced on a mirror, entered into a computer, smeared on a bulletproof glass partition; fingerpainted in dark dried red on a wall; scratched on the newly waxed floor; traced in the pile of a freshly installed carpet; in stencil letters cut out from adjacent polystyrene dropout ceiling tiles; letters cut from the day's newspaper before it had been opened, the phrase arranged neatly and affixed somehow to the blank space at the top of the page; in dripping fresh wet red, under the royal images properly set in gilt frames on the wall.

The messages were all made out of the same seventeen letters.

They all appeared to make sense in relation to the events that took place in that building, on October 2, 2018.

And they haunted my dreams for months.

Russian military holds large-scale naval drills off Syrian coast

Pompous Pompeo is pontificating about Syria using gas again so Russia is practicing air defense, anti-submarine warfare and sea rescue. Interesting!

The Russian Northern Fleet’s missile cruiser Marshal Ustinov currently on its long-distance deployment to the Mediterranean Sea held a series of shipboard exercises, including air defense drills, the Fleet’s press office reported on Wednesday.

“The ship’s crew held air defense and anti-submarine warfare exercises, and also practiced the ship’s protection and defense during a sea transit,” the press office said.

Retreat from Qatar suggests US is preparing for war

Amid escalating Iranian threats and attacks targeting Saudi oil facilities, shipping, and a $110 million US drone, one would expect America to be strengthening its military presence in the Gulf.

But, no, quite the contrary. In an unannounced operation, which the Washington Post was invited to observe, the US this week transferred the command and control center of its air operations in the Middle East from its long-established base in Qatar to South Carolina.

Saudi Elites Question MbS' Ability To Lead World's Largest Oil Exporter After Aramco Attack

Sources told Reuters that members within Saudi Arabia's ruling family and business elites are increasingly becoming frustrated with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) after the largest-ever attack on Saudi oil facilities on September 14, reported Reuters.

Distinguished members within the ruling Al Saud family have expressed deep concern about MbS' ability to defend and lead the world's largest oil exporter, according to a senior foreign diplomat and five sources with ties to the Al Saud family, all spoke on condition of anonymity to Reuters.

Some of the sources said the September 14 attacks fueled unwanted tensions in the Middle East, especially the threat of imminent war with Iran.

"There is a lot of resentment" about the crown prince's ability to lead, said one of the sources, a member of the Saudi elite with royal connections. "How were they not able to detect the attack?"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, can you blame the Royal House of Saud. that they are absolutely gobsmacked by this guy's inability to put down "primitive hostiles", the Houthis in Yemen, who have managed to embarrass Saudi Arabia's military with both some incredible hits on Saudi oil refinery structure, and the capture of Saudi forces inside Saudi Arabia, plus that nasty little carving up of Adnan Kashoggi, shrieking his lungs out while getting dismembered, about which the whole damn world knows?!?

Timing... is everything.

And over this last weekend, PBS aired a documentary indicating that Prince Mohammed bin Salman wanted to recognize Israel, in return for the US' assistance in getting rid of the Iranian oligarchy running the country.

MbS ‘Ready to Recognize Israel in Return for US Help’

But remember: this documentary was shot in 2017; not this last weekend.

So the timing of its release was intended to create a very different mindset of the Saudi Royal Family than that upon which many Americans had based their understanding of this country and its leadership.

We notice the following, printed last year, regarding the personal wealth of this family:

Saudi Family's Walth Could be more than $ 1 trillion

Were I Prince Salman, I would immediately request a peace deal with the Houthis, creating as favorable a set of circumstances for Saudi Arabia as was humanly possible.

I would then formally reach out to Israel for a trade deal which not only benefits Israel, but the entire Middle East, including Gaza and the West Bank (for which the current Kusher proposal has absolutely nothing, except exile, extinction and despair).

And the recurring question in MbS's head should be the following; "I have about 2,000 relatives, out of the 12,000 in the family who actually hold the purse strings here.

Now, which of those 2,000 relatives have both assassins on speed dial, and a very single-minded desire to have me "neutralized", in the worst possible way for a human to die?!?!?

MBS must shelve his vicious war in Yemen

Never underestimate the power of blowback. Right now, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman (MBS), the de facto ruler of the House of Saud, is staring at it, an ominous abyss opened by the Houthis in Yemen.

This past weekend, Yemeni Armed Forces spokesman Brigadier Yahya al-Sari clinically described how Ansarallah, also known as the Houthi rebel movement, aided by what Yemenis describe as “popular committees,” captured three Saudi brigades of 2,400 – ragged – soldiers, plus Yemeni and Sudanese mercenaries as well as several hundred battle vehicles. At least 500 Saudi soldiers were killed, Ansarallah said. (A spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition denied the claim).

YEMEN WAR REPORT – OCTOBER 2, 2019: HOUTHIS DELIVER DEVASTATING BLOW TO SAUDI ARABIA

In late September, Yemen’s Houthis carried out a large-scale operation against Saudi-led forces on the border with the southern Saudi province of Narjan. According to a spokesperson for the Armed Forces of the Houthi Government, the Houthis fully defeated at least 3 brigades of Saudi-backed forces. The Yemeni force killed 500 personnel, injured 2,000 others, destroyed 15 vehicles and seized a large number of weapons and military equipment.

Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari noted that the operation involved a coordinated effort of ground, missile, and air forces. They conducted at least 21 missile and drone strikes on positions of Saudi-led forces. As a result of the operation, the Houthis captured 350km2 from Saudi-led forces.

Brig. Gen. Sari said that aircraft of the Saudi-led coalition conducted at least 300 indiscriminate airstrikes in a desperate attempt to stop the Houthis’ advance. These strikes killed at least 200 coalition-backed personnel, according to the Houthis.

Three Saudi Brigades Annihilated in Devastating Houthi Offensive in Saudi Arabia

Many may have hitherto been led to believe that the Houthis were a ragtag armed force lacking in sophistication.

On Saturday September 28, the Houthis put paid to such speculation by confirming what many, like myself, have been writing for months; that is, that the asymmetrical tactics of the Houthis, combined with the conventional capabilities of the Yemeni army, are capable of bringing the Saudi kingdom of Mohammed Bin Salman to its knees.

Yemen Is Now Saudi Arabia’s “Vietnam War”

Something does not appear right in Saudi Arabia. Although the Wahhabi Kingdom has a technological, demographical and economical advantage over Yemen, it has completely failed to break the Yemeni resistance, headed by the Houthi-led Ansarullah Movement. The Ansarullah Movement has not just been on the defensive against Saudi Arabia’s advancements, but has also taken the fight directly to them despite the Kingdom controlling the seas and the high skies.

On September 14, the Yemeni Resistance attacked a Saudi Aramco oil facility, causing billions of dollars in damage that will take months to completely fix. However, it is the capture of thousands of Saudi soldiers, including high-ranking officers, and mercenaries that has consolidated the idea that Saudi Arabia is experiencing its own so-called “Vietnam War.”

Saudi leader Mohammed bin Salman: War with Iran would cause 'total collapse of the global economy'

Should a military conflict break out between Saudi Arabia and Iran, it will cause global mayhem, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said in an interview that aired Sunday on 60 Minutes.

In the interview, bin Salman said the price of crude oil would spike to "unimaginably high numbers" if there is a war. "The region represents about 30 percent of the world's energy supplies, about 20 percent of global trade passages, about 4 percent of the world GDP," he said. "Imagine all of these three things stop. This means a total collapse of the global economy, and not just Saudi Arabia or the Middle East countries."

Saudi vehicles destroyed, Saudi-led troops & officers taken prisoner in alleged VIDEOS of Houthi’s border victory

Yemeni Houthi rebels have released footage of what they say was a victorious offensive on the border with Saudi Najran province. It shows scores of captured military troops, including what seem to be Saudi officers, and hardware.
The footage was broadcast on the Houthi-run Al Masirah TV channel on Sunday. The video features a Houthi spokesman explaining the details of the military operation, which they’d dubbed ‘Victory from God,’ as well as live action footage from the ground.

The offensive began a couple of days ago but is said to have been planned over several months. Three Saudi-led brigades were ultimately led into a major ambush, the spokesman claimed. The battle against the brigades – said to be some 7,000-strong in total – took place on Yemeni soil close to the border with the Saudi Arabian province of Najran.

YEMEN: HOUTHIS RELEASE 350 PRISONERS INCLUDING 3 SAUDIS

This is the most significant of a string of cross-border raids carried out by the Houthis, although Saudi Arabia has yet to confirm the attack.

The Houthi’s Committee for Prisoners Affairs (NCPA) said: “We have presented to the United Nations a unilateral initiative to release 350 prisoners and detainees from the other party who were included in the Stockholm agreement statements,”

Abdul Qader Al-Murtada, head of the NCPA, explained that among the released prisoners are all the inmates who survived from the Saudi air strikes on Dhamar prison earlier this month, which killed over 100 non-combatants.

Trump, FDR, and War

President Trump’s campaign of “maximum pressure” against Iran reminds me of President Franklin Roosevelt’s similar campaign against Japan prior to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

Trump’s brutal economic embargo on Iran brings to mind what FDR did to Japan. The difference, however, is that Trump’s objective seems different from that of Roosevelt.

When Trump withdrew the United States from the accord that it had entered into with Iran under the Obama administration, it was with the aim of arriving at a new accord. Trump figured that by squeezing the economic life out of the Iranian citizenry with his embargo, he could induce Iran’s rulers to return to the bargaining table and enter into a new agreement, one that would be satisfactory to Trump, which he could then trumpet in his campaign for reelection.

How the Saudi Oil Field Attack Overturned America’s Apple Cart

For all their overwhelming firepower, the U.S. and its allies can cause a lot of misery in the Middle East, but still can’t govern the course of events.

In spite of a $68 billion a year defense budget – the third highest spending of any country in the world – with a world-class air force and supposed state-of-the-art anti-aircraft system, a handful of bargain basement drones and cruise missiles slipped through the Saudi radar and devastated Riyadh’s oil economy.

This is hardly an historical first. British dragoons at Concord were better trained and armed than a bunch of Massachusetts farmers, but the former were 5,000 miles from home and there were lots more of the latter, and so the English got whipped.

First Flight of Iran's Qaher F-313 Imminent? Capabilities of Iranian Military Aviation Indicate a Basic Stealth Jet is Possible

The Iranian armed forces have recently announced the imminent first public flight of a new indigenous fighter jet of unknown designation, leading to much speculation as to the platform set to be unveiled and whether the Qaher F-313 stealth fighter was the aircraft referred to.

While it cannot be verified at this point whether the Qaher F-313 is or is not a genuine stealth fighter, the prospect for such a program may not be as impossible as Western and Israeli sources have claimed. Firstly one must consider Iran's substantial military industrial capabilities, which supply the vast majority of the country's defence needs independently, effectively and an extremely low cost.

While the variants of the Musudan in Iranian service are unknown, the most advanced are though to have a range of over 4000km.

This would provide Iran with a significantly more powerful means of striking targets further afield such as U.S. military bases in Eastern Europe and Africa, with attacks from multiple warheads notably considerably more difficult to intercept than those by a single warhead.

America’s Banality of Evil

Many Americans don’t think of sanctions as weaponry of war. That’s because they seem so benign. After all, they are just rules and regulations. What’s the big deal, right? No bombs are dropping. No troops are invading and occupying Iran. No shootings. No torture.

In fact, sanctions aren’t really so much a weapon of war as they are a weapon akin to terrorism. That’s because they don’t target enemy troops, as is done in war, but instead target the civilian population of a nation as a way to achieve a political goal.

That’s what terrorists do too. They also kill innocent civilians as a way to achieve a political goal. Terrorism and sanctions are the weapons of the coward because the civilians they target have no real way to defend themselves against a suicide bomb or economic sanctions.

3 Saudi brigades destroyed

Pretty much an entire division.

The operation resulted in the complete destruction of three military brigades of the enemy (Saudi) forces, seizure of large quantities of military equipment, including hundreds of vehicles and armored vehicles, capture of thousands of enemy forces, mostly traitors and the beguiled (Saudi-sponsored Yemeni militiamen loyal to Yemen's former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi). Hundreds more were killed and wounded in the process as well,” Saree pointed out.
Only 72 hours after the start of the operation, our forces laid full siege to enemy troops. Three brigades of traitors with units of the Saudi army were completely destroyed, and scores of people taken hostage,” Saree said.
