1001 Arabian Nights

Every night we will tell you a new fairy tale. This time it is not Sinbad or Ali-Baba and the forty thieves (though it might involve Ali-Bibi and the forty thieves).  Suffice to say that this tale is also meant to put you to sleep.

Surveying the  Damage

Every good fairy tale book comes with nice pictures.....here follow the images:

Alternative facts

Now have a look at this website that I discovered. It claims that the Saudis have confirmed that missiles were fired from the Iraq-Kuwait border region and that one of the cruise missile engines found having been manufactured by NATO member Czech Republic military rocket producer.   Look at the images....

It seems like they are not even trying very hard?? 

CNN's exclusive full interview with Iran foreign minister

CNN's Nick Paton Walsh interviews Iranian Foreign Affairs Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in the wake of the Saudi Arabia oil facility attacks that knocked out almost half the country's oil capacity and caused President Trump to order new sanctions on Iran.   This half hour interview is worth watching and is remarkably balanced even though it comes from fake news CNN.   https://edition.cnn.com/videos/world/2019/09/19/iran-foreign-minister-mohammad-zarif-saudi-oil-attacks-full-interview-nick-paton-walsh-intv-vpx.cnn

 

And then there is this-

What follows next is mostly cut and paste from various comments.  Many of these comments are "anonymous" from various websites but they contribute greatly to the intelligence analysis.  Here goes then:

Meet the new hawk, much like the old

O’Brien’s Iran war talk came at a September conference in Israel – including genocide proponent Ayelet Shaked – hosted by the think tank the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism.

O’Brien talked about US “hostages” held in Tehran’s Evin prison.“Could we secure, could we send in a couple of ranger battalions and secure the neighborhood and send in one of our sabre teams and breach the prison and get our folks out? We could do that,” he stated.  O’Brien acknowledged that “there would be a tremendous cost that goes along with it, establishing an air corridor, basically going to war with Iran.”

“So, that would fall under everything we can,
and we’re not doing that at this point,” he added.
“Although that is something we potentially could do.”

So, just days before assuming his new White House post, O’Brien postulated that the US could go to war with Iran to secure the release of a small number of people. Amnesty International has reported that conditions in Evin prison are “inhumane and unsanitary” and that abuses including torture take place. The human rights organization has also recently pointed to the “horrific human rights violations” including torture committed by the United States at its Guantánamo Bay military prison.

Additionally, it has condemned breaches of international law and “callous and dehumanizing” practices at a federal super-maximum security prison in the United States. The use of solitary confinement in prisons across the country is described by Amnesty as a “shocking abuse.”

The US has consistently blocked United Nations human rights investigators from gaining access to its prisons.It is also difficult to imagine what the American response would be to a foreign power even contemplating a military invasion to free prisoners held in dire conditions by the United States.

The plight of Americans held in Iran is nevertheless serious.

But talking about war with Iran is incredibly dangerous. In addition to the potential devastation and loss of life, it would be illegal and would throw the region into deeper turmoil – perhaps surpassing the chaos unleashed in the aftermath of the Bush-Cheney war on Iraq. O’Brien’s statement in Israel goes far beyond a 5 September tweet in which he noted that the US is “closely monitoring the conditions for Americans wrongfully detained by Iran in Evin prison.”  He added that prison officials “are responsible for the detainees’ safety” and that “the world is watching.”

The Outhouse of Sod

https://carnegieendowment.org/2013/06/14/forgotten-uprising-in-eastern-saudi-arabia-pub-52093

 

100 years ago, the Brits hired a warlord then living in Kuwait to conquer the Southern part of the Semite Kingdom (aka: Hashemite Kingdom) and the Northern part of historical Yemen, and what they did then, makes what Israel is doing now to the Palestinians, look like a walk in the park. 100 years ago, there were 5,000 followers of #Wahhabi /ism, and the Brits, through their huge sponsorship of the warlord and his Wahhabi teachings created the serge we know today as "The Outhouse of Sod"

 

Conclusions

Perhaps you are completely confused by now and I don't blame you.  Part of the problem is information overload and they want you to be confused so that you will turn to the mainstream narrative.  A war is being fought for your mind. It is a propaganda war and you need to treat everything skeptically and critically.  To simplify:

 

Option 1 - it was perpetrated by Saudi or Israel, with no obvious consequences.

Option 2 - it was perpetrated by Iran or Yemen, who now possess impressive skills.

And either the Saudi radar operators were asleep, which is very likely, or the equipment is not fit for purpose, which is equally likely.

Remark 1: Saudi is a dead man walking.....the oil regions (Eastern provinces) are chock full of Shiites. Whatever happened it seems that attacks on the ground were part of the scenario (disaffected KSA Shiites). KSA has about 15-20% Shia population and is primarily concentrated in the country's Eastern province, you know where the latest oil facility was blown up.  It also looks like they also want to cover the fact that they are running out of oil and therefore sell of Aramco quickly.

Remark 2: If it was a false flag why did the Houthi's claim the attack? To take the heat of Iran and embarrass KSA? By claiming responsibility they would slow down any plans to ramp this into an Iranian war.

 

As usual nothing is clear.  However.....we do know a few things for certain. 

1. Israel wants war with Iran....therefore

2. The USA wants war with Iran

Locked & Loaded

Apparently Trump is locked and loaded.

 

Loaded for what?

Backing-down?

Despite being ready to dump a load (of ordinance) on Iran the President sent his Press Secretary to clarify the tweet in what seems like a step back from the brink.  Perhaps his policy is constipated?

 

 

Something smells bad

All we can say is that something smells about the whole affair.  Who do we go to for the truth?  Should we ask Pompeo who admits that he lies,cheats and steals or should we ask the Saudi's (LOL)?

You can trust me

The lying liars lie

The only thing that is a certainty is that everything you are told is a lie.  We live in the post truth era.  Truth does not matter only perception.  We will tell you what to think.  What we know is that the Houthi's admitted it and that Iran denied it.  Any truth to those statements?   Well, the Houthi's apparently do have the drone capability.

Yemen has endured bombings by Saudi and the killing of elementary school children in their buses by using lockheed missiles delivered by US and Saudi pilots in US Aircraft. Only Iran has condemned these killings. We must not forget that it was Trump who left JCPOA, declared a de-facto war on Iran through sanctions, and has ignored the call to stop aiding the Saudis in the attacks on Yemen.

Like four ducks in a row.  So neat and so precise and very little burn marks. They should be easy to repair just put a stop valve in the hole....voila!   Some say that this is all about pumping and dumping the oil prices as shale prices were falling. ( https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-09-01/murderers-row-oil-and-gas-bankruptcies-accelerate-137-billion-debt-matures-over )  Oil demand is plummeting (https://www.reuters.com/article/us-global-oil-demand/oil-demand-growth-grinding-to-lowest-in-years-as-global-economy-stalls-idUSKCN1TD0YI ).       The fires have been put out in less than a week.  Job done. See the images of the Abqaiq infrastructure: https://imgur.com/a/OKmcC18    And despite  the satellite surveillance of the most congested area in the world no one saw the attack?   And despite a "shield" of  Patriot missiles and Hawk batteries the flying Houthi junk-drones could not be stopped (LOL)?   This is all very strange especially as Trump mentioned American military technical (weaponry) superiority . Might this be in response to Putin's recent trolling?

Putin, trolling Trump, says Saudi Arabia should buy Russian air defense system. Russian president’s barb comes after Washington says Iran likely to blame for drone attack.https://www.politico.eu/article/putin-trolling-trump-says-saudi-arabia-should-buy-russian-air-defense-system/

 

Some (conspiracy theorists) are saying that the US capability is not up to scratch.  The Russians have developed the S-300 and the S-400 and are supplying them to their allies.  It is generally acknowledged that these are far superior technology.   The reasoning goes that the USA now produces junk through the military contracting system and that everything is corrupted.  After the fiasco with the Boeing aircraft (Boeing is also a military contractor) this seems likely.  Just because you spend "trillions" on it does not make it better and Russia has been concentrating on defensive equipment such as the S-300 and S-400.  This might well explain why the USA has backed down (albeit temporarily).

American Military Doctrine Backfires, Hyped and Extortionate US Air Defenses are Pathetic

https://www.fort-russ.com/2019/09/american-military-doctrine-backfires-hyped-and-extortionate-us-air-defenses-are-pathetic/

Others point to Bibi being given  a slap-down by Putin.

 

This is where and how the winds -and with them the tectonic plates-have 
shifted. And don’t underestimate it. Bibi can presumably count on Trump
more than any other US President in his time, and the US is supposedly
this almighty force, also in the Middle East, but today Putin just tells
him “don’t you dare!” Putin refuses to let him touch Assad’s territory
and -Russian- weapons.
The clincher is those weapons have become so sophisticated that Bibi,
Trump support or not, puts his tail between his legs and flies back,
hoping nobody notices what shape he’s in. And in that humiliation, Lebanon
is the cherry that Putin puts on top of the pie. “Now that you’re here,
I want you to stop harassing Lebanon too. Yes, now you may go.”
Lebanon must have stunned Bibi.

It’s a New World Order, Alright

Others are saying that Israel is behind the attack: Israel stages F35 Saudi attack after Putin’s smackdown of Netanyahu over Syria  https://www.veteranstoday.com/2019/09/15/israel-stages-f35-saudi-attack-after-putins-smackdown-of-netanyahu-over-syria/

 

Comment of the day

Referring to the Epstein incident one joker says;

 

Two American spy HD satellites covering the region in KSA where the oil
facilities were attacked were malfunctioning and footage is unusable.
Moreover, the NSA/CIA employees tasked with monitoring events in the
region were asleep while the incident occurred.

 

He should have added that the drone pieces were buried in an unmarked grave and it has been handed over to the FBI to investigate (sic).  What a shame that Bolton was fired only a few days ago.
