Iran-linked terrorists caught stockpiling explosives in north-west London

Quote:
"Terrorists linked to Iran were caught stockpiling tonnes of explosive materials on the outskirts of London in a secret British bomb factory, The Daily Telegraph can reveal

The discovery was shocking. Thousands upon thousands of small packages gathered together, each one containing ammonium nitrate - a common component in homemade bombs.

To innocent eyes, the disposable ice packs looked innocuous enough. By folding one, the water pouch inside would burst and mix with the contents, rapidly turning cold.

But in this case the purpose was sinister. By cutting them open, pure ammonium nitrate could be extracted"



Bolton to present evidence Iran was behind Gulf tanker attacks

Quote:
The United States could present evidence linking Iran to attacks on oil tankers off the coast of the United Arab Emirates earlier this month to the United Nations Security Council as early as next week, US National Security Adviser John Bolton said on Thursday.

Speaking during a visit to the UK, Bolton reiterated earlier claims suggesting that Iran was behind the May 12 attack on four commercial ships in the Gulf.

Iran urges U.S., allies to stop ‘false flag operations’ in region

Quote:
Pointing to Washington’s sanctions against Tehran following the former’s unilateral withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear agreement, the statement said, “The U.S. economic war and terrorism against the Iranian people as well as its massive military presence in the region have been and continue to be the main sources of insecurity and instability in the wider Persian Gulf region and the most significant threat to its peace and security.”


Jeremy Corbyn says UK government increasing threat of war without ‘credible evidence’ Iran was behind Gulf tanker attacks

Quote:
But on his social media account, Mr Corbyn said: “Britain should act to ease tensions in the Gulf, not fuel a military escalation that began with US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement.

Trump says 'we were cocked & loaded to retaliate last night'

Quote:
'We were cocked & loaded to retaliate last night on 3 different sights when I asked, how many will die. 150 people, sir, was the answer from a General. 10 minutes before the strike I stopped it,' he said in tweets, 'not proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone.'


Trump ‘thinks he knows’ who was behind 9/11

Quote:
It was not Iraq. It was other people. And I think I know who the other people were.


Trump talking in riddles in his latest speech, and says he does not want any more wars in the Middle East, and points out, like he did in his Presidential campaign, that the 6Trillion Dollars spent on war since 9/11 could have been spent on much needed infrastructure in the US for new roads, schools, housing and jobs. Yet he hints he knows who was behind 9/11, no doubt encouraged by the constant whispering campaign in his ear by neoconservatives John Bolton et al who want to bomb Iran off the map.

Russia contradicts Trump administration by saying downed US drone was in Iranian air space

Quote:
Mr Patrushev spoke to reporters after a three-way meeting with his Russian and Israeli counterparts in Jerusalem. He said Iran - an ally of Russia - had not briefed Moscow about the incident, but that the Russian Defense Ministry had concluded the drone entered Iranian airspace.

He said: "We have not seen any proof otherwise."

PROXY WAR Iran ‘sets up network of terror cells in Africa to strike at Western targets such as military bases and oil fields’

Quote:

“It is all part of Tehran’s attempts to expand its terrorist operations across the globe.”

Kashmir issue: Indian Navy puts warships on high alert, suspect Pakistan-based terror attack

Quote:
A top official told Hindustan Times that the Navy has sounded an alert on the eastern and western seaboards and added that every point of entry along the coastline is being monitored in real-time to identify any potential threats.
Before any military invasion of Iran can take place, Pakistan's nuclear arsenal must first be secured. A major conflict between India and Pakistan would give the US military the pretext it needs to invade Pakistan.



German Refusal to Join US-Led Anti-Iran Op Ruins Washington's Plans to Show 'United West' - Report


Quote:
According to several insiders, Berlin's refusal to join the US-led coalition would only prove to Tehran, which has strongly denied its involvement in the tanker incidents, that the West is not unified.

Hence the neocon Zionist sponsored alt-right counter Jihad scene in Europe to escalate tensions betweens Muslims and Europeans for warmongering purposes in the Middle East.

Iran gives cautious welcome to sacking of John Bolton

Tehran says removal of Trump official will not bring prospect of talks with Washington closer
Quote:
Hassan Rouhani, Iran’s president, said on Wednesday that the US had to not only remove “warmongers” — a clear reference to Mr Bolton — but also abandon “its warmongering and ‘maximum pressure’ policies”. He said Iran would continue its policy of resistance against the US pressure
.



Why U.S. foes around the world will welcome Bolton’s departure, and why they shouldn’t get too excited


Quote:
Especially North Korea, Iran and Russia considered Bolton to be a key obstacle and are unlikely to miss him. But between the lines, their reactions to Bolton’s ouster also reflected analysts’ skepticism whether the disliked adviser’s ouster would really alter the Trump administration’s overall aims and strategy.

Trump must consider attack on Iran after drone strikes on Saudi Arabia, Lindsey Graham urges

‘It is now time for the US to put on the table an attack on Iranian oil refineries,’ says senator

Quote:
A key ally of Donald Trump has urged the US to consider attacking Iran in response to the drone attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil industry.

Republican senator Lindsey Graham, a prominent foreign policy hawk, suggested that hitting the country’s own refineries would “break the regime’s back”.

Trump says U.S. 'locked and loaded' for potential response to Saudi oil attack

Quote:
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi dismissed the U.S. allegation it was responsible as “pointless”. A senior Revolutionary Guards commander warned that the Islamic Republic was ready for “full-fledged” war.

U.S. believes attack on Saudi Arabia came from southwest Iran

Quote:
Three officials, speaking to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said the attack involved both cruise missiles and drones, indicating the strike had a higher degree of complexity and sophistication than initially thought.


Armageddon on the Horizon?


By Paul Craig Roberts


Quote:
The attack on the Saudi oil fields that Trump and Israel are blaming on Iran is almost certainly an attack by Israel. The attack is being used to start a war with Iran.

35 ‘vital US & Israeli targets’ within Iran’s reach for potential REVENGE for General Soleimani’s death – senior IRGC commander

Quote:
Killing the Quds leader was the “biggest strategic mistake” the US has made in its four decades of standoff with Iran, Abuhamzeh said, promising that Tehran will “exact revenge.”

War Again on the Front Burner

By Paul Craig Roberts

Quote:
Iran’s response was predictable and unfortunate. Iran declared it will take revenge, and most likely will. Iran’s revenge will give Israel the war it wants between the US and Iran.

Iran would have done better to take its revenge and deny responsibility.

WORLD WAR III? President Donald Trump Was Lied To, Will This Martyrdom Lead to a Restored Palestine?

Robert David Steele, Tehran Times, 6 January 2020

PRINT edition page 11: Tehran Times Special Issue on Assassination




Quote:
"He was set up. Now it appears that the three leaders who set him up are using the New York Times to place the blame for this terrible decision on the President. In an article “As Tensions With Iran Escalated, Trump Opted for Most Extreme Measure” is the sentence “By late Thursday, the president had gone for the extreme option. Top Pentagon officials were stunned.” This is clearly an orchestrated endeavor to destroy President Donald Trump."
"Was Trump outmaneuvered by his neocon advisors?"-Tucker Carlson


Donald Trump was elected on an anti-war platform promising no more foreign interventions that do not benefit US national interest. Because of that election promise Trump made an instant enemy of himself with the US deep state including the Industrial Military Complex and the neoconservative lobby. Since Trump came to office the deep state has attempted to impeach the President because of his reluctance to go to war.

Trump is on record for wanting to rebuild the US economy and infrastructure and has stated that US foreign wars since 9/11 has cost the US taxpayer Six Trillion Dollars. Money that could have been spent on building more roads, houses, hospitals and factories instead of killing millions of people.



The neoconservatives are a broad body of ideologues composed of various vested interest groups who profit form war. The main group are Zionists whose main agenda is Israel first. Other groups include the Industrial Military and Oil Complex, and White Anglo Saxon Protestant (WASP) oligarchs.

To ensure that US foreign policy is in harmony with Israel’s geopolitical goals in the Middle East, the neoconservative think-tanks advice Washington policymakers on US foreign policy. US foreign policy decisions in the Middle East involves the welfare of Israel first and foremost.


EXCLUSIVE: Israeli Colonel Leading ISIL Terrorists Captured in Iraq

War with Iran is decades in the planning. President Obama, like Trump, was reluctant to go to war with Iran or Syria, but opted for plan B. That plan B was the CIA created and sponsored ISIS terrorist group to do the dirty work of the neocons and avoid US boots on the ground because US public opinion at the time was opposed to another war.

Trump has gone one step further than President Obama. Trump sided with Russia’s fight in Syria against ISIS. The Russian alliance with Iran and Syria in defeating ISIS has setback the neoconservative agenda in their plans to overthrow Assad of Syria. In supporting Russia’s fight against ISIS Trump had thumbed his nose up at the deep state when he withdrew US soldiers from Syria.

It’s unlikely Trump will agree to war with Iran. If he does, his plans to rebuild the US will go up in a plume of flames as the Middle East quagmire could result in a global economic collapse. Trump will, like he did with okaying economic sanctions against Iran, opt for lessor measures than direct war itself. But should another 9/11 occur in the near future, with Iran’s ‘fingerprints’ all over it, Trump could be backed into a corner and have no choice but to agree to war.



It appears that Trump has been fooled by his advisors. Trump is on record for not wanting more war in the Middle East, and has taken the lessor option of sanctions on Iran in the past including withdrawing from Syria. Knowing these facts, it is more than feasible that his advisors have set Trump up with the assassination of Gen. Soleimani, without Trump realising the consequences of such an action. Trump said the day after the assassination of Gen. Soleimani:

Quote:
"We took action last night to stop a war, we did not take action to start a war.

"Soleimani made the death of innocent people his sick passion, contributing to terror plots as far away as New Delhi and London. His reign of terror is over.

"He was plotting imminent and sinister attacks on American diplomats and personnel but we caught him in the act and terminated him."
The above Trump statement suggests he was spoon fed false intelligence by his security advisors to take action. It is also clear Trump believes the assassination will prevent a war with Iran. This is not Trump talking but the security assessment he received by his CIA advisors. I can almost hear the conversations that took place inside Trump's cabinet between the President and his military advisors:

Quote:
"In the chaotic days leading to the death of Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, Iran’s most powerful commander, top American military officials put the option of killing him — which they viewed as the most extreme response to recent Iranian-led violence in Iraq — on the menu they presented to President Trump.

They didn’t think he would take it. In the wars waged since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, Pentagon officials have often offered improbable options to presidents to make other possibilities appear more palatable.

After initially rejecting the Suleimani option on Dec. 28 and authorizing airstrikes on an Iranian-backed Shia militia group instead, a few days later Mr. Trump watched, fuming, as television reports showed Iranian-backed attacks on the American Embassy in Baghdad, according to Defense Department and administration officials."
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/04/u...suleimani.html



It's highly likely the CIA were behind the attacks on the American Embassy to change Trump's mind and order the assassination of Suleimani. Both the CIA and Israeli Mossad specialise in creating Islamic proxies in order to encourage sectarianism between Muslims.

They have played him like a fiddle, and the consequences will be war. Because if Iran retaliates the US will declare war immediately. Which means Trump's dream of rebuilding the US is over.

Putin Should Take Control of the Iranian Situation Out of Israel’s Hands


By Paul Craig Roberts

Quote:
Israel and the Neocons have Trump where they want him. Trump’s outrageous and reckless murder of Qasem Soleimani has provoked serious Iranian threats against the US to which Trump has replied with threats. Although there is some indication that Trump has realized his mistake and is trying to calm the situation, a calmed situation is not what Israel and the neoconservatives want.


Quote:
Polls of the American public indicate that anti-Iranian propaganda has succeeded. All Israel or the neoconservatives, who are well placed, need to do is to conduct a false flag attack on some American entity, military base, personnel or ship, and blame it on Iran. The American press will demand Iranian blood and so will most of Trump’s constituency. As Trump has already committed himself to a response, he will have to deliver.

Iranian Missile Strikes: Tehran warned Iraq to spare US soldiers

Quote:
First and foremost, Iran communicated its intent to strike US targets in Iraq directly to the Iraqi Prime Minister a full two hours prior to the missiles being launched; Iraq then shared this information with US military commanders, who were able to ensure all US troops were in hardened shelters at the time of the attack.

Iran says is certain no missile hit Ukrainian plane before crash

Quote:
"A delegate from Ukraine is already in Iran. We call upon Boeing Co. to dispatch its own representative to participate in the process of reading the black box data,” he said.

Rabiei said Iran also welcomes the participation of all the countries which have lost their nationals in the mishap.

The spokesman roundly dismissed the Pentagon’s allegations that missiles downed the Ukrainian jet. “No one will assume responsibility for such a big lie once it is known that the claim is fraudulent,” he said.
Iran admits shooting down Ukrainian airliner 'unintentionally'

Quote:
The Iranian foreign minister, Javad Zarif, wrote: “A sad day. Preliminary conclusions of internal investigation by armed forces: human error at time of crisis caused by US adventurism led to disaster. Our profound regrets, apologies and condolences to our people, to the families of all victims, and to other affected nations.”
The Iranians should have come clean straight away.

Coronavirus Is Doing More to Topple Iran’s Regime Than Trump Ever Could

Quote:
The assassination of Qasem Soleimani was a watershed moment. It demonstrated the lengths to which the Trump administration was prepared to go to achieve its foreign policy goals in the Middle East. But the coronavirus outbreak may do a better job of undermining the Iranian government than airstrikes and brutal sanctions ever could.

The deadly disease is literally killing Iran’s leaders.

Coronavirus was produced in a laboratory: Former CIA intel officer

Quote:
“If one even considers it possible that the United States had a hand in creating the coronavirus at what remains of its once extensive biological weapons research center in Ft Detrick Maryland, it is very likely that Israel was a partner in the project. Helping to develop the virus would also explain how Israeli scientists have been able to claim success at creating a vaccine so quickly, possibly because the virus and a treatment for it were developed simultaneously,” he noted.

‘Facts matter!’ Pompeo lectures Iranian govt over ‘conspiracy theories’ as US sanctions deprive nation of medicine

Quote:
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has slammed Iran for blaming Washington for coronavirus and accused Tehran of putting “the rest of the world at risk,” even as US sanctions keep sorely-needed medical supplies out of its reach.

Pompeo assailed Iranian Ayatollah Khamenei’s “fabrications that the US is responsible for the #WuhanVirus” in a series of tweets on Monday, claiming the Supreme Leader’s “conspiracy theories” and alleged disregard for the warnings of experts put the health of Iranians, Americans, and others in jeopardy.


US Leaders to Iran: Coronavirus Won't Save You From Sanctions

Quote:
Addressing reporters, US Special Representative for Iranian Affairs Brian Hook said Washington's policy of maximum pressure on Tehran's regime will continue.
Manmade or organic in origin, Washington is taking full advantage of the Coronavirus outbreak at Iran's expense by imposing more sanctions.


Chinese official Zhao Lijian echoes conspiracy theory that US is to blame for coronavirus outbreak


Quote:
Zhao Lijian, a foreign ministry spokesman, made the assertion on Twitter late Thursday, echoing similar conspiracy theories proliferating on Chinese social media that blame the US for the pandemic.

“It might be US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan. Be transparent! Make public your data! US owe us an explanation!”
China is an important political and trading partner of Iran. What better way than to attempt to sour relations between both nations as Iran is gripped by the Coronavirus.

Live Simulation Exercise to Prepare Public and Private Leaders for Pandemic Response

New York, USA, on Friday 18 October, 2019


Quote:
Event 201 simulates an outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic.


Quote:
The world has seen a growing number of epidemic events, amounting to about 200 per year
Pandemics could cause average annual economic losses of 0.7% of global GDP


Quote:
Event 201 exercise will bring together public and private leaders to inform multistakeholder cooperation for pandemic preparedness and response


Follow the live virtual exercise from 08.50 - 12.30 EDT here

Geneva, Switzerland, 15 October 2019 – The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World

This hiring notification is on the CDC website. Look at the date. It looks like the CDC may have had some advance notice regarding this plague.

China's first confirmed case of Covid-19: November 17. -Chris Langan
Public Health Advisors; Opening period -2019-11-15 to 2020-05-15

Fauci says ‘it’s possible’ US could see coronavirus peak in 45 days

Quote:
Earlier Tuesday, Cuomo had said that expected peak of the outbreak will be 45 days, or around May 1.
And it gets better.

'Crimson Contagion': Trump administration ran pandemic simulation months before coronavirus hit

Quote:
Former Air Force physician Robert Kadlec, who has studied biodefense issues for decades, led the exercise, which imagined a contagious disease that originated in China and spread globally after nearly three dozen tourists were infected and returned home. The hypothetical outbreak spread quickly through the U.S. after an infected person attended a concert packed with thousands of others.

All responsible governments prepare for emergencies in advance. However, Event 201 unerringly predicted the source of the infection, a bat, and 'Crimson Contagion' predicted China as the location for the Coronavirus. The timing of these simulations and their uncanny predictions is more than a coincidence.

The Coronavirus Distraction…And The Continuing War On Iran

Quote:
Neocons never like to allow a good crisis to go to waste. While Americans are increasingly threatened by authoritarian politicians if they dare leave their homes to protect against the spread of a virus that may end up being less deadly than the flu, the neocons are hard at work stirring up war on Iran. More sanctions, bombing "Iran-backed" militias in Iraq. And more. Panic is good for the war business.
Ron Paul explains how the neocons are taking full advantage of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Commander Opposes Secret Pentagon Plan to Wipe Out Iraqi Militia

General: Attack would divert resources, risks starting a war with Iran

Quote:
The Pentagon has issued a secret directive, as of last week, calling on the military commanders in Iraq to plan a massive campaign against Iraqi Shi’ite militias, with an eye toward totally wiping one or more of the factions out.

The offensive is being advocated by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who believes they can destroy Iran’s proxies while the country is distracted by the coronavirus pandemic. Some commanders, particularly Lt. Gen. Robert White, are opposing the idea.

The general warns that the new campaign would take thousands more US troops, divert resources from existing missions, and risk blowing up into a full-scale war with Iran. Escalating a war with Iran, however, probably isn’t going to deter Pompeo from advocating the effort.

It isn’t clear if Trump has signed off on the offensive yet, but he did allow the planning to continue, and advocates are likely to believe they can go from planning to engagement without too many serious obstacles.

Quote:
While major military exercises have been cancelled in Europe due to coronavirus fears, the US has decided to continue with war games in the Middle East aimed at making war on Iran. On the home front, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is using the virus to fight a hybrid war on Iran and other US 'enemies.' Will kicking them while they're down really work to our advantage? More sanctions on suffering countries?

Will coronavirus lead to a US war with Iran?

Tehran’s virus troubles could allow Shia militias to attack US forces in Iraq

Quote:
But whether the Iraqi Shia militias are fully under Tehran’s control is another matter. It’s true that they get arms and money from Tehran, and answer to the Iranian general who replaced Soleimani. But they are, first and foremost, Iraqis and they have promised to fight to get rid of the American ‘occupier’ in Iraq. They have the support of many Iraqis — the democratically elected Iraqi parliament has voted to tell the Americans to leave.
Article asks the question and explains why it won't happen. So why ask the question in the first place?



Is coronavirus a weapon of biological warfare?

Quote:
The coronavirus perhaps could be a perfect opportunity for the Western countries to watch how countries cope—or don’t cope—with a major crisis.
After all, an adversary can exploit a crisis by adding a second one.

The United States could, for example, exacerbate Iran’s coronavirus misery by imposing even more sanctions—as it did last week—or by staging cyberstrikes against power plants.
Many world leaders are calling for sanctions on Iran to be eased until the Coronavirus pandemic is over. The Iranians could be adding to the pressure on the US by suggesting Coronavirus was created in a US lab. They certainly have nothing to lose by doing so.

Interesting to note the Iranians suspect something else is in the pipeline.

Quote:
U.S. military command teams in charge of protecting homeland security are being isolated in the infamous Cheyenne mountain bunker where they will remain 'sealed off' until the coronavirus pandemic passes
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...in-bunker.html
Surely the Cheyenne mountain bunker is overkill for Homeland Security just to contain Coronavirus?

Iran warns US after Patriot missile deployment to Iraq

United States reportedly deploying Patriot missiles in Iraq to counter possible Iranian rocket attacks.

Washington had been in talks with Baghdad about the proposed deployment since January, but it was not immediately clear whether it secured its approval or not. Iran, which wields huge influence in its western neighbour, said it had not.
