America Blinked: the Worst May Be Over.

January 9th, 202.

The US President has just delivered a statement on the Iranian attack on the US bases in Iraq. To cut to the chase-the US is not going to respond in any substantial way to the attacks. The President seemed completely spooked, haunted and sad.

Can’t say I am a fan but I feel a deep sense of gratitude to the man at this moment. Throughout the speech, Trump repeated the usual laundry list of highly selective and dishonest talking points vis a vis Iran and Qassem Solimani, but the bottom line is that an almost unimaginable calamity may have been avoided.

Hundreds of thousands of people were poised for sudden violent deaths, and now they are not. At least not right now.

Hopefully at some point what has taken place behind the scenes will emerge but something big has happened. Perhaps Russia said something, perhaps the US military said something, perhaps the polling data said something, possibly even Israel said something but either way a radical change has taken place in a very short amount of time.

It is worth noting that the President was originally scheduled to make a statement the previous night and that event was cancelled. There are rumours that USAF jets departed for an attack but were then turned around.

That is completely unconfirmed but this speech, it was like watching a completely different person, all of the swagger, all of the bluster was gone, he seemed a broken man to be honest and I don’t say that with any spite.

However, as long as the US seeks to maintain a military presence in Iraq and Syria, there will be problems.

As long as the US thinks it has the right (or obligation) to march around the world removing “disobedient” governments, there will be problems.

As long as the US looks upon the people of the developing nations as natives to be suppressed by any means, there will be problems.

As long as the US sees the security of Israel as a higher priority than the well being of the people of the US, there will be problems.

Nonetheless, this was the calamitous moment, this was the time of opportunity, the propaganda was flowing freely.

The time was right.

Thanks be to Tucker and Tulsi and the very few prominent Americans who showed some spine in recent days. Your courage should never be forgotten. You are the real patriots.

US President Trump speaks after Iran attacks US bases in Iraq

Iran Attacked Two US Military Bases in Iraq in Retaliation for Soleimani Murder.

Update March 18th, 2020.

It turns out that 110 US troops suffered  concussion related injuries as a result of the Iranian ballistic missile attack on the Ayn al Assad airbase, despite the forewarning.

Astonishingly the number of injured troops that the US military disclosed kept rising for more than a month with the final number of 110 being announced on February 22nd, a full six weeks after the attack.

Update January 9th, 2020.

It has emerged that Iran gave the Iraqi Government notice of the attack, the Iraqis warned the US, there were almost certainly zero casualties.

It also appears at this time that the US will not respond to these missile strikes, somewhat analogous as they are to the US response to the two fictional chemical attacks blamed on the Syrian Government in 2017 and 2018.

This was more a face saving piece of theater than a concerted attack.

A good outline of what took place is presented here:

MoA – Iran’s Missile Launch Against Two U.S. Bases in Iraq Calls Trump’s Bluff

If the situation can begin to calm down that will be a great result in the circumstances, but I don’t see that happening. This project has come too far along to be abandoned now, or to put it another way, the forces of insanity and Zio-Western supremacism in the US far outweigh those of sanity.

As far as the loss of the Ukraine International Airways 737 goes, no explanation is being offered by either side at this time. Mechanical failure remains a possibility.

However, the mechanical failure of a three year old plane leaving Tehran at this very time seems like a most remarkable co-incidence indeed.

January 8th, 2020.

Iran Attacked Two US Military Bases in Iraq in Retaliation for Soleimani Murder.

On January 8th, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps fired a salvo of missiles at two US bases in Iraq. It is being reported that between 15 and 30 ballistic missiles were fired at the al Assad airbase in western Iraq and the Erbil airbase in the Kurdish northern region.

SouthFront is reporting that 10 missiles struck the al Assad base, at least one hit Erbil and that 4 missiles failed.

The US claims that they suffered no casualties in the attacks, Iran claims that 80 US personnel were killed. The US claim would appear to be the more credible at face value.

Iranian TV Claims ’80 American Terrorists Killed’ As US And Iraq Deny Any Casualties

US warmongers such as Lindsay Graham are claiming the attack is an act of war against the USA, Iran is claiming the attack is a just and proportionate response to the US murder of Qassem Soleimani and his companions in Baghdad in the early hours of January 3rd.

It is also being reported that there is intense activity at multiple US airbases across the region, specifically of a high volume of activity over eastern Syria and that US jets have been scrambled from a base in the UAE.

US Scrambled Warplanes From UAE Air Base For Supposed Strike On Iran After Missiles Hit US Facilities In Iraq

The reason for this activity is unknown, it is possible that these aircraft are in the process of attacking Iran at this very moment, it is also possible that the US was seeking to move them out of harms way in anticipation of an Iranian missile attack on these sites.

The US President sought to downplay the impact of the Iranian retaliation, his tweet in response began “All is well” indicating either that the President is beginning to understand the magnitude of the error that he is made or that the US is seeking to lull Iran into a false sense of security prior to launching a massive air assault as promised by the President in recent days.

As if that development was not sufficiently dire, 177 people are presumed to have perished following the crash of a Ukrainian International Airlines Flight 752 shortly after takeoff from Tehran’s Imam Khomeini Airport. Videos appear to indicate that the Boeing 737 caught fire and exploded in mid-air.

January 4th, 2020.

US Kills Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad Airstrike.

Iran Promises to Avenge Slain Qods Force Commander.

On January 3rd 2020 the US military- acting under the direct orders of the President, assassinated the celebrated commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Quds force Major General Qassem Solemaini near the Baghdad International Airport.

As commander of the Quds force Soleimani was responsible for directing the external operations of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps.

This entailed support and co-ordination with the forces of the “Axis of Resistance”  across the Middle East/West Asia region with affiliated and supported militant groups spanning from Pakistan and Afghanistan in the east across to Lebanon via Syria and Iraq all the way to the Mediterranean,plus Gaza and Yemen to the south.

Qassem Soleimani photographed with Shia militia members in Aleppo, mid October 2015.

A short checklist of Qassem Soleimani’s major achievements:

Assisted the Lebanese Hezbollah militia evict the Israeli military from southern Lebanon in 2000 and repulse further Israeli aggression in 2006.

Played a central and crucial role supporting and co-coordinating the military operations of the Governments of Syria and Iraq in their successful battles to destroy ISIS.

Supported the Yemeni Houthi party in their successful struggle against the Saudi aggression against their nation.

This track record of success made Qassem Soleimani a hero to millions and a despised enemy of both the Zionists and the “garden variety” imperialists of the West, intertwined as they are.

It is believed that Israel made at least one attempt on his life in recent years.

The Response.

In the immediate aftermath of the attack the Supreme Leader of Iran vowed to avenge the death stating that “a severe retaliation awaits the criminals who painted their corrupt hands with his and his martyred companions’ blood last night.” (Source)

Therefore a cataclysmic broader armed conflict between the US and Iran now seems all but inevitable.

A day later the statement of the Iranian leader seems imprudent. The US has been seeking to destroy the government of Iran for decades, a direct attack on US interests in the region may enable this long-standing plot to come to fruition.

False Flags Ahoy!

The understandably bellicose statement from the Iranian leader mean that any of Iran’s many enemies merely have to attack an object belonging to the US anywhere in the world and the US will have the pretext that it craves to directly attack Iran.

In reality the initial response from Iran and her allies is to recognise that the attack in Baghdad was primarily a violation of Iraqi sovereignty. The US has killed a senior figure in the Iraqi military structure while purporting to be in Iraq at the request of the Iraqi government to support them in the fight against ISIS.

The killing of the senior Popular Mobilisation Forces leader Abu Mahdi al Muhandis is thus an even more egregious violation than the killing of the far more celebrated Solemaini.

Abu Mahdi al Muhandis the slain deputy of the Iraqi PMF, arguably the ground force most responsible for ISIS’ defeat..

As the Saker points out in his analysis of the situation, the first course of action should be for the government of Iraq to evict the US military from their nation.

Soleimani murder: what could happen next?, by The Saker

This should be done in a legal and transparent manner. The Iraqi parliament needs to formally vote to reject the ongoing US military presence in their nation.

If the US then fails to accede to the request of the Iraqi parliament, Iraqi forces would have no choice but to seek to forcefully evict the Americans.

But it must be hoped that it doesn’t come to that. Too many lives have already been lost on all sides.

As far as justifications go, none ring more empty than revenge, but many will claim that if such a flagrant violation is allowed to go unpunished, even greater crimes may follow. So the motivation for a response would be to restore deterrence.

World War 3?

The chances of either Russia or China becoming directly involved in armed conflict with the United States should open war break out are all but zero.

The chain of escalation initiated by the US may well lead to a major regional war, it may well lead to events that see oil prices skyrocket and crash the global economy but the chances of open global war involving the great powers are infinitesimal.

Neither Russia nor China have any interest in confronting the US directly, certainly not over Iran. Should a war break out they will seek to end the conflict in the UN and failing that may offer limited behind the scenes assistance to Iran.

It must be remembered that these powers are self-interested and they understand that every act of aggression only hastens the US loss of credibility in the world, de-facto boosting their own position without their having to lift a finger.

The US Government.

The reckless actions of the US government are not in the interests of the people of the United States or anywhere else. At this point it is clear that behind all the rhetoric to the contrary, a hopelessly compromised Israeli-Saudi asset sits in the White house.

The fact that the President chose to “celebrate” the extrajudicial murder of Qassem Soleimani by tweeting an image of the US flag was particularly galling.

It is likely that the event that triggered the current bout of escalation was not the attack by persons unknown on a US military base near Kirkuk on December 27th that left one US mercenary dead and four soldiers lightly wounded, but rather the naval exercises conducted by Russia, China and Iran starting on the same date in the Gulf of Oman and Indian Ocean.

China, Russia and Iran begin joint naval drills

As the unipolar moment that followed the collapse of the Soviet Union passes, the US feels compelled to over-assert itself- like a middle aged man buying a sports car as a sign of undiminished virility.

But the ill-considered and reckless nature of these actions-massacring anti-ISIS forces in the Syria Iraq border region along with the latest atrocity, only hastens the decline.

Israel.

From Israel’s point of view there is a desperate need to “pump the Rube” before he goes bankrupt. While Israel has a strong relationship with both Russia and China, there is zero chance that either of those states will ever enjoy the type of relationship that Israel does with the US.

So if a major power is to be utilised to achieve the Israeli goal of destroying the Islamic Republic of Iran, they absolutely must achieve this before the US is comprehensively superseded by China and Russia.

Russia has already achieved a military technological advantage over the US and China is arguably a more influential economic power also.

The Prospects of US Success.

The arrival of Trump, clueless, presumably hopelessly compromised by his 15 plus year “friendship” with Jeffrey Epstein and even longer association with Ghislaine Maxwell in the White House sees them possibly on the verge of achieving what only four years ago seemed an impossible dream.

That’s not to suggest that there is a realistic prospect of the US actually invading Iran, such an operation is well beyond their military capabilities.

Their hope is that the combination of aerial bombing, sanctions and other hardships inflicted upon the Iranian people will enable a more pliant leadership to be installed in Iran.

A similar plot succeeded in 1953, when the CIA overthrew the moderate nationalist and democratically elected Iranian Prime Minister Mossadegh and replaced him with the puppet ruler the Shah, largely because Mossadegh’s policies threatened the interests of major Western oil companies.

It is not realistic that a similar scenario will succeed today, but the United States and Israel simply cannot tolerate independent nations in the middle east region, let alone those that are openly defiant-and will therefore strive to achieve this regardless of the human suffering inflicted on the world by these efforts.

The murder of Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al Muhadis and their colleagues may be the most dangerous step they have taken on this path, but it will not be the last.

The ending of the siege of the Kwieres Air Base.

.Both sides are reporting a major, albeit fragile victory for the Syrian Government forces and allies in the Aleppo countryside, the site of the  largest Syrian offensive conducted since the Russian intervention began.

The Kweires Air base had been surrounded and besieged since 2013, Around 3oo troops remained in what was  an island in an ISIL controlled area. Syrian Government forces have now broken the siege destroying the insurgents  positions surrounding the facility in what appears to be a major achievement.

Iranian media are reporting that the commander of the Revolutionary Guards Quds force Qasem Soleimani .is leading the assault on the ISIl forces in Eastern Aleppo. this is a clear sign that they believe the operation will succeed as the image and prestige of the commander are clearly important to them.

“Unconfirmed reports said the groundbreaking victory was gained under the leadership of Iran’s renowned Commander Major General Qassem Soleimani.”

This marks possibly the first major achievement since the Russian Iranian escalation of October.

SAA offensive in Hama failed.

Several of the Syrian Government offensives undertaken after the Russian air force joined the war, such as the Hama operation, have clearly failed.

Towns that were taken weeks ago have fallen back into the hands of the insurgents, most obviously Morek.

al Nusra massacre in Latakia.

Meanwhile in the Western region oif Latakia, the heartland of the Syrian government support, insurgents have massacred dozens of civilians in mortar strikes.

Al Jazeera described the events.

  “at least 24 civilians were killed and 57 others injured by two rocket shells that landed in residential areas of the coastal city of Latakia, quoting local police.

The observatory put the death toll at 23 civilians, adding that at least 40 others had been injured in the attacks. The rockets landed near Teshreen University.”

Jabhat al Nusra and the other jihadists routinely conduct these punitive massacres against civilians in Government areas when they face defeat on the battlefield. It is one of their trademarks.

Like the rebels. Syrian Government forces frequently bombard positions held by the other side with scant regard for civilian deaths and injuries.

Douma targeted.

“At least 15 people were killed and more than 100 others were injured when government warplanes targeted residential areas in Douma, just outside of the capital Damascus.”

Iran Unveils Secret Underground Bases.

It has been obvious for many years that there was an intention within the War party ro bomb Iran as the ranking member of the House and Senate Armed Services Committee John McCain put it in his “cute adaptation of the Beach Boys classic “Barbara Ann”

Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran

So it was always an easy guess that Iran would build military facilities deep within the mountains that dot Iran as protection against even a major Nuclear attack

It seems that the successful nuclear deal and the Russian entrance in Syria have made Iran confident enough to display some of the defensive positions they built to survive an air attack that now seemingly will never eventuate.

IRGC-ASF Commander Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh “”Those who are happy about their options on the table should just take a look at [Iran’s] options under the table.”
The statement from the revolutionary guard commander in charge of the facility seemed almost to be taunting Israel “do not worry that you never managed to get them to attack us as the attacks had no chance of success.” or as stated  “Those who are happy about their options on the table should just take a look at [Iran’s] options under the table.”
This is some of what the Iranian State media quoted IRGC-ASF Commander Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh as saying

Underground-basing of IRGC-ASF ballistic missile force | Uskowi on Iran –

“IRGC-ASF Commander Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh permitted what he claimed were first ever imagery to be published of ballistic missile force bases bored into the “heart of a mountain,” stating “Those who are happy about their options on the table should just take a look at [Iran’s] options under the tableOur power and capabilities are like an iceberg that floats above water and whose tip barely shows above the clear water.”

Hajizadeh further claimed numerous such tunnels exist across the country at a depth of 500 metres.

“The Islamic republic’s long-range missile bases are stationed and ready under the high mountains in all the country’s provinces and cities,” he said, according to Sepah News.

The commander said the missiles were ready to be launched from all over Iran, on the order of “the supreme commander-in-chief,” Leader of the Revolution Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

“This is a sample of our massive missile bases,” Hajizadeh said, adding that “a new and advanced generation of long-range liquid and solid fuel missiles” would start to replace the current weapons next year.”

Iran is now heavily engaged in Iraq and Syria, the Iran Revolutionary guards are in Syria in large numbers and the Iranians are increasingly open about their presence. This shot taken from a video called Entry into Kvrenbaudh (yes I checked) appears to show a Russian adviser and two Iranian IRGC members poring over a map of Latakia. The “Russian” has European features and he is smoking, the Revolutionary Guards are easily recognisable although the younger of the two may be a member of Hezbollah.

Controlled media smells a hoax!?!

It was pretty amusing then to sit through the State Department Press Briefing of October 14 and note that some Fox News “Israeli” journalist named Justin Fishel was seemingly convinced the Iranians had Photoshopped the immense caverns full of mobile ballistic missile launchers that they have put on display as he asked the spokesman whether he had seen the photographs and knew if they were legitimate.

Fox News correspondent and heroic frined of Israel Justib Fishel smeels a hoax and he is one heck of a good judge.

You know they say in the broadcast ” (adopts laughable menacing tone)”this could be used if our enemies make a mistake.”

This shows how utterly rattled the Western elite are at the moment.

They have been listening to their own propaganda for so long they have no idea that the cornerstones of their world view are lies.

Still from Press Tb shows the scale of the facility.

The World has changed in six months.

The World has changed, the “AIPAC” moment at the helm of the all-powerful US empire is over.

Both elements of the equation have changed.

AIPAC’s veneer of semi invincibility within the US has been destroyed and it has also become crystal clear that the post Cold war “US moment” is over. The world appears to have simply passed them by in a matter of months and outside the bubble of the Western controlled media, their dreams are dying on a daily basis

The moment that reality begins to dawn upon them will be a moment of extreme danger.

It seems that the Syrian Army suffered heavy losses from the TOW rockets in Hama.

Syria regime hit by Hama “tank massacre”

The Syrian Arab Army appear to have made some territorial gains with the assistance of intense and massive Russian air support.

The Russian air support, especially from the helicopters, has been heroic, but the overall training and competence of the Syrian Army must be questioned at this point, while it is obviously too early to judge the results of this operation.

Iran general died in ‘Israeli strike’ in Syrian Golan – BBC News

The West and Cohorts Plot, Sulk and Lie.

I am still struggling to get over the fact that the United States actually has the temerity to suggest that they have the right to send armed militants into a nation to overthrow the Government and if someone kills them in an attempt to assist the legal Government of the nation they are doing some wrong.

The sooner the United States comes to terms with the fact that it is simply another nation state with no entitlement whatsoever to decide the affairs of others, the better for everyone, them included.

There are no credible reports of Russian casualties at this time although that did not stop the increasingly laughable Syrian Observatory for Human Rights from claiming that three Russian helicopters have been downed and destroyed.

If any helicopters come down we can rest assured that there will be pictures. We will see little else for days.

Consortium News provides an excellent insight into the mood and thinking in Washington DC, they describe “official Washington” as being “blind with rage” at the Russian intervention into the Syrian war.

These are some of the videos that have emerged over the past day or so from the battlefields of Syria.

It is actually very sad to watch the rebel footage. When things are going ok, when there is hope and defiance they will all shout “Allahu Akbar” and it can become a little tiresome and repetitive, but I have now noticed that when something really bad happens, when they know that their allies or their buddies are being killed, they stop saying “Allahu akbar” and start saying, well, I guess they are saying ‘”Allah” but it is long and mournful and sounds more like “Yallah.”

This is one small way I have figured out to judge the effectiveness of the military operations. While the jihadists are shouting “Allahu akbar.” things are alright for them or there is at least hope but once they start saying “Allah” instead, This is a sign that they are taking casualties and losing morale.

September 3rd, 2015.

It’s Over, the Zionist attempt to vandalise the Iran Nuclear Deal has failed.

The decision by US Senator Barbara Mikulski of Maryland to side with the Iran deal means that US President Obama now has the 34 of the 100 seat Senate on side ending the possibility of the US Senate achieving the two thirds majority required to overturn the Presidential veto of the (expected but now futile) House and Senate vote against the deal.

White House wins enough Senate support for Iran deal | News , World | THE DAILY STAR

The process is that the House and Senate will vote against the deal. The President will veto this and in order to overturn the Presidential veto two thirds in both houses are required.

Two thirds of 100 rounds up to 67 Senators required to overturn the veto. The 34 Senators who have now backed the deal mean that at most the opponents of the deal can achieve 66 Senators which spells the final chapter in an unprecedented defeat for the Zionist lobby in the US and signals the end of a decades long campaign of lies to achieve the violent overthrow of the Iran Government.

The struggle to bomb Iran is now over. The monsters have been defeated, at least on this issue.

I hope it represents the first signs of the reawakening of an independent United States that will never return to the self destructive and evil role as Israel’s brutish and moronic attack dog in the Middle East.

A role the US assumed following the Zionist/Wall Street coup of September 11th, 2001.
