Two more oil tankers were attacked in the Middle East, this time in the Gulf of Oman. This was on top of the four ships that were hit not long ago. But just what is going on is hard to tell. The Saudis and the US blame Iran for the attacks. This latest was supposedly affected using limpet mines – and possibly a torpedo. The US release videos of what they say are Iranian operatives removing an un-exploded mine from one of the ships in the dark following the attack – purportedly to hide the evidence. CBS News reports however that the “Japanese owner of the Kokuka Courageous, one of two oil tankers targeted near the Strait of Hormuz, said Friday that sailors on board saw ‘flying objects’ just before it was hit, suggesting the vessel wasn’t damaged by mines.[i]
So what’s really going on vis-à-vis Iran? It’s really hard to know. There are a number of players involved in this high-stakes game and several of them would have had some motive to either launch the attacks or stage a false flag. After President Trump imposed sanctions that would prevent Iran from exporting petroleum, it’s financial lifeblood, Tehran essentially said they would make it impossible for any other nation to export their oil. There’s a motive for ya! And then there are the Saudis. They could have attacked their own ships – recall no one got hurt in the first attacks – in order to get the US to take care of business with the Persians (Iranians) – and remove the nuclear threat to Saudi Arabia in the region. [The incident could have even been staged by rogue elements of the Deep State working to push us into a war with Iran. We DO have a record of doing that in Syria regarding chemical weapons use. And Benghazi and the gun running to terrorist elements which later went over to the side is a prime example of Deep State hubris and meddling – in that case with the approval and direction of the highest levels of the State Department.] You could add Israel to this list too, as they might not mind a little American help in dealing with the Iranian threat.
Another issue is that the attacks are already having an effect on the oil market, driving up the price by 3.5% already. The Strait of Hormuz handles about 19% of the world’s oil. So if the safety of the ships is a perceived issue, insurance rates will go up and owners may even be unwilling to risk their ships in the region.
But the drum beat for war goes on from the neocons like Bolton in the administration. Yet a war with Iran would not be the easy thing that some think it might be. Britain’s Express reports that “according to one former ranking US Air Force strategist” now living in the region, American victory was far from certain – despite the massive advantage in fire power. He writes:
- “Iran is a REALLY BIG COUNTRY – it is 3–4 times larger than Iraq, with a much larger population.
- The terrain is more like Afghanistan, ringed with mountains, not deserts. It isn’t a good place for tanks to run amok.
- Worse, the Strait of Hormuz is REALLY narrow, especially the shipping channel. Nearly all of it can be fired upon from Iran with short-range missiles or can be attacked from shore with small boats. There is NO WAY to try to sail tankers out during war times.
- Iran is right – they probably CAN block the Strait in the event of war. No business wants to come under missile attack while in transit.”[ii]
Driving home the point are the costly training operation Millennium Challenge run shortly after 911. The Pentagon conducted war maneuvers in which they gamed-out a conflict with Iran. Within the first 24 hours, the drill predicted the US would lose 16 warships and 20,000 men. The maneuvers were suspended.[iii]
Now what makes this such a dangerous game is the fact that we are talking here about a possible nuclear confrontation. As this newsletter reported many years ago, the Russians let slip in the early 2000s that they believed Iran to have purchased nuclear weapons from one of the former Soviet Republics. Besides the Russian General, the Jerusalem Post and at least two US Congressmen believed this to be true, even before the attacks on the Twin Towers. Bill McCollum (R-FL), referenced evidence that the House Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare collected which “indicates Iran possesses nuclear capability. For years, we have received reliable information that Iran has been obtaining nuclear weapons’ parts and supplies from the former Soviet republics in Central Asia. Not only have we not dismissed these reports, but over these six years there has been a growing volume of supporting evidence.” One Israeli MK also reported that “several leading members of the US military have believed that Iran managed to smuggle in several nuclear devices.”[iv]
In February of 2016, five high-ranking US officials, including a former Director of the CIA argued in an editorial published in National Review that Iran already had nuclear weapons and that they could employ them as an EMP weapon against America’s power grid. “We assess, from U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency reports and other sources, that Iran probably already has nuclear weapons. Over 13 years ago, prior to 2003, Iran was manufacturing nuclear-weapon components, like bridge-wire detonators and neutron initiators, performing non-fissile explosive experiments of an implosion nuclear device, and working on the design of a nuclear warhead for the Shahab-III missile.
Thirteen years ago Iran was already a threshold nuclear-missile state. It is implausible that Iran suspended its program for over a decade for a nuclear deal with President Obama. Iran probably has nuclear warheads for the Shahab-III medium-range missile, which they tested for making EMP attacks.”[v]
Rather than backing down to the world’s superpower, Iran seems to be going on the offensive. For one thing they’ve ramped up their threats against Israel, America’s greatest ally in the region. “Iran recently produced a program on its state television channel demonstrating that the government is currently practicing missile attacks, with the purpose of carrying out actual attacks on Israel.” They are practicing the bombing of Tel Aviv.[vi] And they are bragging about their abilities to defeat the Great Satan, the United States of America.
As Iran ramps up its actions and war talk word has been leaked that the US is planning a massive attack against the Persian state. According to The Jerusalem Post, UN officials revealed: “The military action under consideration would be an aerial bombardment of an Iranian facility linked to its nuclear program.” One Western diplomat said: “The bombing will be massive but will be limited to a specific target.”[vii] Michael Snyder of The End of the American Dream this will lead to a war – and a big one at that. “If this happens, it will start a war. Iran is home to more than 81 million people, it is armed to the teeth, and it is the global central hub for Shia Islam. It would be the biggest war that the United States has fought since World War II, and the Iranians would fight to the death and they would throw everything that they have at us. That would include unleashing all Iranian and Hezbollah operatives in North America to conduct widespread terror operations. Blood would be spilled on a massive scale, and there would be great chaos inside our own nation.”[viii] He is not alone in that analysis.
Both directly and indirectly through their client Hezbollah, the Iranians have set up sleeper cells throughout the US. From the Washington Free Beacon. “Iranian-backed militants are operating across the United States mostly unfettered.” They could launch an attacked with relative ease. “Iranian agents tied to the terror group Hezbollah have already been discovered in the United States plotting attacks.” [ix] We know that back in 2003 there were “12 Hezbollah cells operating in the US.” And “according to Ilan Berman, Vice President of the American Foreign Policy Council, Hezbollah is present in at least “fifteen metropolitan centers, stretching from New York to Los Angeles.” [x]
They are aided and abetted by the terror network they have established in Latin America. In May, ANP reported “Intelligence officials and former White House officials have warned Congress that Iran could be planning to launch attacks against the United States.” They further pointed out that “In Latin America, Hezbollah cells are openly active, which also means that Iran may take Latin America as an advanced launching pad for attacks on US territory or on Washington’s interests in the region”[xi] That confirms reports we have been putting out on radio and in this newsletter that revealed the existence of a Central American training network of camps to prepare the likes or MS-13 operatives, Middle Eastern terror-types and drug cartel members to make war on the United States.
Besides Dave Hodges of The Common Sense Show, we can now add Judicial Watch as yet another source of reporting on this activity. In 2014, “a Judicial Watch investigation uncovered evidence of Islamic terrorists infiltrating the United States through Mexico, a captured ISIS fighter is providing details of a plot in which jihadists enter the country through the southern border to carry out an attack. The terrorists begin their journey in Central America and exploit vulnerabilities in the Mexican border to reach the U.S., according to Abu Henricki, an ISIS soldier captured by the Syrian Democratic Forces in Rojava, Syria.” Later, President Morales of Guatemala confirmed that just under 100 terrorists had been detained near that county’s border with Honduras. In addition, Judicial Watch also confirmed “that Mexican drug cartels are smuggling foreigners from countries with terrorist links to stash areas in a rural Texas town (Acala) near El Paso.” In 2014, four ISIS soldiers were taken into custody in McAllen and Phar, Texas. Finally, in 2017, “Judicial Watch exposed a plot involving Mexican drug traffickers that help Islamic terrorists stationed in Mexico cross into the U.S. to explore targets for future attacks.”[xii]
And it is Deep State operatives within the US government – within DHS that have ordered the Border Patrol to stand down and even provide transportation to MS-13 and ISIS types that have been caught at the border – to destinations deep within the heartland of America. It is all part of the strategy to take down the US. It can be nothing else.
We’ve been talking for some time now about the plans to strike America a massive blow as the PTB prepare it for a transformation into the New World Order. The Express’s military expert quoted earlier agrees. He believes that any war with Iran would ultimately come to America. “Iran will undoubtedly use terrorism to strike the US if push comes to shove. It’s easy to be brave NOW, but the US isn’t under attack. If a real war happened, we would have MULTIPLE Shiite attacks on targets like Times Square, Mall of the Americas, Disneyland…. You get the idea. So does Iran. So does Hezbollah. These attacks may take place YEARS after the war… literally. Kiss your freedom of movement goodbye, for YEARS.”[xiii] And that’s just the ticket to get Americans to beg for a New World Order….Oh yeah, isn’t that just the method that the Antichrist will use to come to power. When the people beg for peace and security….at any price. Here are the words of 1Thessalonians 5. “But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, ‘Peace and safety!’ then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.” (verses 1-3) But Paul then finishes the thought with words of comfort for the believers in verses 4 & 5. “But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.”
A Last Second Update
After this story was put to bed some last minute developments! Iran, I’m sure you’ve heard shot down an American drone in international airspace. This is NOT like the drones you might see in your neighborhood. This is the size of a jet. To put it in perspective, it has a wingspan of 131 feet – and costs about $110 million. You’re not picking this up at Walmart. So this is a serious thing. Thursday was a day of meetings and briefings with cabinet and congressional leadership. At the end of it all, the President ordered a retaliatory strike focusing on “several proportional targets in Iran, such as radar and missile batteries, and was timed to minimize the risk to civilians and the Iranian military, which would have been a significant escalation.” So reported Slate. Then with planes in the air, but no missiles fired, the strike was called off. President Trump wanted to try the diplomatic route – but left the door open to future air strikes.[xiv]
So what would cause the US to suddenly pull back just minutes or even seconds before the missiles to be launched. It was reported Thursday night on several news outlets that the President had received new intel while the planes were in the air and the ships in place. Because that’s the interesting things about all of this. The planes were already in the air. That’s striking. It’s reported that Mr Trump received new intelligence. What could it be? Could it be a message given to the President from the Iranian mullahs? Or could it be out of concern for our Israeli ally? Or some combination? Let’s look at a couple of possibilities.
First of all, should the US and Iran go to war the cancer would spread across the planet. The flow of petroleum from the Gulf region would be majorly disrupted. Nation’s are beginning to recognize this. India is in the process of deploying multiple warships in the area to affect “maritime security.” Britain is sending special forces to the region to protect its assets. More countries are expected to bring military and naval forces into the region.[xv]
Secondly there is Israel. Back in mid-May, Tehran let it be known that they would strike Israel if the US struck them.[xvi] That point is driven home with a headline from Michael Snyder of The End of the American Dream. “If The U.S. And Iran Go To War, Tens Of Thousands Of Missiles Will Rain Down On Israel.” He points out that Iran is reputed to have some pretty sophisticated anti-ship missiles. If they start firing those we will surely up the ante with a massive bombing campaign, and as Iran promised, they would launch much of their ballistic arsenal, the largest in the region against Israel. So of course, Israel would come against Iran with full fury. And there’s no doubt Hezbollah would get in. They are estimated to have 150,000 rockets ready to launch from southern Lebanon, across Israel’s northern border. Israel would be forced to invade to stop the carnage. They’ve just completed major maneuvers practicing that very scenario.[xvii] And you can expect Hamas will not be sitting on the sidelines just chomping popcorn.
And there’s there is probably the most critical factor. The danger on the home front! As we noted earlier in the article, There are dozens and dozens of Iranian sleeper cells in the country – and as former FBI Director James Comey noted, they are in all 50 states of the Union. They are joined in their role by dozens of Hezbollah operatives. ISIS elements have been flowing across the border, coming in with the estimated 3 million illegals that have come across in this most recent invasion. MS-13 gang members were let in the country and sometimes even given transportation under the Obama administration. [We’re aware of Jihadi elements occupying compound even here in the Western New York Region. Middle Eastern types and Chinese nationals have been spotted infiltrating the US by coming across the River from Canada.] According to many DHS and FEMA sources, they know just what is going on – but they are powerless to stop it. That is why our government is warning us to be ready for a grid-down event that could last 6 months. Have food ready for that period of time. Deal with a water source. Prepare to heat and cook and medicate without the convenience of electricity and reduced communication.
Trump is aware of the situation too. He passed down that same warning. It is critical that Americans be prepared to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights. If you noticed, President Trump has withdrawn from the UN arms agreement that would have essentially put control of the firearms of private American citizens in the hands of the United Nations.
You see, what is being plotted here is a full-fledged, simultaneous, multi-front attack against dozens, maybe hundreds of targets in the US. Iran may have threatened to unleash those very attacks. They will be targeting malls and school and police and assassinating political figures. They will be joined by embedded Chicom elements. We’ve talked before about the training camps in Central America, where ISIS and other Middle Eastern terror types were joined by MS-13 gang members and members of the drug cartels. They have been preparing for this attack for some time now. Other elements will come on board. Expect ANTIFA to join the fun, as well as elements of the folks that want California to secede from the Union and form us as a separate state under the protection of the UN. [The UN has just finished training the Mexican National Guard, which were recently brought up to the US border. There have been small military incursions into the US by Mexican forces and they have been observed and filmed aiding migrants to cross over illegally.] Now under something called the Kigali Principles, which Obama put in place late in his term, the UN can – without invitation – legally come into a country to protect the civilians there, when chaos hits. And that’s exactly what they are driving at. That is their goal. Chaos and Civil War and disruption and division. That will allow America’s entrance into the New World Order.
Now that drive to create chaos fits in exactly with the End Time’s goals of the Shiite Muslims that run Iran. They believe that their Mahdi, their Islamic Messiah, will come during a time of chaos and war to save the Muslim people. Their former President, Ahmadinejad was all about creating the chaos and preparing for the coming of the Mahdi that he believes is coming soon.
Now if you know anything about the Islamic-prophesied career of the Mahdi, you know that he appears to take on the role of the Christian Antichrist. Michael Youssef covered that in a recent book, The End Times & the Secret of the Mahdi. “He will lull the world into believing in him, even worshipping him as their messiah. But he will end up abusing humanity like it’s never been tormented before.” And there are many parallels between the Antichrist and the Islamic Mahdi. Muslims believe he will rule the whole world. “He will call himself ‘the man of peace.’ That he’s going to come at a time of chaos and confusion and people longing for somebody to guide them and lead them and bring them peace because they will be worn out.” Just like Ol’ AC, he will rule for 7 years. He will demand to be worshipped and persecute those who don’t – coming especially against Christians and Jews. And there are elements in Islam – the rabid Shiites, ISIS – that are working to bring about the chaos that will usher in his reign. So it could very well be that President Trump was reminded – or threatened – with the unleashing of this very real threat.
So don’t get me wrong. I don’t believe that we can make this thing go away. The plans are in place. Some have compared to what is coming as a Red Dawn invasion. Others to a Tet Offensive type of scenario, comparing it to the attacks launched by the North Vietnamese in 1968 on many, many targets across South Vietnam. No, we cannot change the pans of the enemy. But we can be better prepared for it. Even though elements of our government, part of the Deep State, are allowing this to happen – other elements in our government are working to prepare to meet the threat. And as individual Americans we need to prepare too. We must prepare for our survival – and it goes well beyond just stocking up with some extra food. We are talking food, water, medicine, heat, security. And most important of all, we must be spiritually ready. If you have not accepted Jesus as the Lord of your life, now is the time to do so. Surrender yourself to the God of the Universe. Make Him the Lord of your life.
