Iran, China and Russia conduct war exercises

"We Cannot Be Isolated": Iran Warns At Start Of Joint Naval Drills With Russia & China

Not the three stooges

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Russia, China and Iran launched their first joint naval exercises in the Gulf of Oman on Friday (27 Dec) in a direct challenge to US influence in the Middle East. The move reflects growing co-operation between the US’s two main rivals and the Islamic republic, which is under sanctions imposed by Washington.

 

Is a new day dawning?

"US Dominance In Mideast Is Over": Iran Declares After Joint Drills With Russia & China

And also, 

China-Iran -Russia alliance ending US unilateral global hegemony

However, let us be Realistic

China just cancelled development of two new aircraft carriers that have been in the works for ten years because they have become too expensive for China's declining economy. Russia's only carrier was in a dry dock that sank, and a crane collapsed onto its flight deck causing $1.5bn in damage, and a fire burned through its controls. But since the only dry dock that can handle the carrier is sunk, there is no proper facility to repair the ship. And Iran???  Their navy relies on inflatables.....

The US is the only naval super-power.  But what does that mean in an asymmetrical war? Russian missiles can take out Air Craft Carriers from 1500KM away.  Hyper-sonic missiles travel at 27x the speed of sound. Why do you think Trump just founded the US Space Force?   However, there are others who suggest that the US is quietly winning the hypersonics race, but is that propaganda?   One conspiracy theory runs that the U.S. is giving Russia 2nd level tech in weaponry through the globalists: "The U.S. is far, far ahead of hypersonic weapons. They want America's military to be taken out in a surprise attack after giving them this tech developed by the U.S. This incident will give them the excuse needed to emerge with black budget tech to implement the New World Order. The globalists that run the world are intentionally provoking Russia so that they will attack".   Who knows?  Seems implausible to me but when you consider that Wall Street funded the Communist revolution nothing would surprise me.  Remember the Hegelian dialectical?   Action, Reaction, Solution.    Anyway, Iran et al do not need naval superiority.  All they need to do is block the straits of Hormuz and the global economy collapses.  Iran has more A2D2 missiles than America has aircraft and they would not hesitate to rain down thousands of them on Tel Aviv.  Iran's geography probably means a land battle is out of the picture.  However, if Israel America wants war, there will be war.  Zionism was an American project , inherited from England.  They have been the  foundations of the Empire  from the beginning. 

 

U.S. military conducts air strikes in Iraq and Syria

The U.S. military conducted air strikes in Iraq and Syria against the five facilities controlled by the Kataib Hezbollah militia group supposedly in response to the killing of a U.S. civilian contractor in a rocket attack on an Iraqi military base.   They are obviously sending a message to Iran (after the naval exercises with Russia and China).   The US has not been very concerned about "contractors" (mercenaries) in the past.

 Centcom footage

 

The Department of Defense released footage of some of the recent strikes against Hezbollah targets - three in Iraq and and two in Syria - it carried out near the end of December. (Tech. Sgt. Joseph Park / U.S. Air Forces Central Command). This is all very exciting footage and shows US air superiority.  How bold and clever. It is all very clinical and sanitized in the air....almost like a video  game.  They do't show you what happens on the ground. They don't show you all the running and screaming. They don't show you the body parts and the blood.  Nor do they show you that 19 people were killed for one US mercenary contractor.    By the way, this attack is not in Iran....it is in Iraq (I bet those Iraqis are loving their free-dumb).

 

Now for a look on the ground:

 

 Libya enjoying post Gaddafi free-dumb

Libya is enjoying the post Gaddafi era.  Except for the death and stuff.  Now let me see if I have got this right?  It is now Turkey (and Qatar) interfering by supplying ISIS mercenaries to fight the government  forces in Libya and France and Egypt are objecting?  Didn't France help liberate Libya?  Maybe Macaroni can join the foreign legion and use his god-like Rothschild powers to defeat evil?   Somewhere in hell Gaddaffi is laughing his  ass-off (although the bayonet still hurts).

 

Is Erdogan Recycling Terrorists from Idlib, to a New Civil War in Libya?

 

Turkish Intervention in Libya – Has Ankara Split its Militants’ Ranks in Northern Syria?

 

 

 

 

On a positive note....

we will always have Afghanistan

Oh dear, all that fuss about the "Afghan papers"  that were leaked by Wiki leaks.  So, they knew that the war was "unwinnable" from the start and LIED.   The horror, the horror.  Of course they did. All these analysts wring their hands.....it was never about "winning" (doh).  As an annonomous comment puts it; "The crime of the century was the incident that precipitated the War in Afghanistan. The Taliban were supposedly ready to extradite bin Laden - IF the US provided proof of his involvement in 9/11. Was there a problem coming up with that proof?  It is clear that Bush and Cheney were chomping at the bit to go after Iraq. Not sure about that either. Iraq was making concessions according to numerous reports. They sure didn't want another war as they knew they'd get their butts kicked. Eliminating a secular regime was pure idiocy - and though Saddam Hussein wasn't the brightest bulb (though you can kind of forgive him for misunderstanding the US Ambassador over Kuwait), the US had used him for years in that proxy war with Iran.  9/11 was far too convenient for too many people. Billions in insurance payouts. Missing gold and silver, Hundreds of billions in questionable bonds cleared in the following week, plus all those investigations into financial crimes that died when evidence was destroyed - in NY and DC.


It was the excuse for never-ending wars, The Patriot Act and so much more. It wasn't a new Pearl Harbor, it was our burning of the Reichstag. But after the original fire, the resulting government lasted only 12 years - 1933 to 1945. We're still fighting in the Middle east after 18 years and are still operating under the Patriot Act with Homeland Security and all the other things brought to us by our Reichstag fire - with no end in sight. Last laugh is on the perpetrators. They may get their defacto dictatorship but they've inherited a bankrupt Empire". 

But they have always got the DRUGS.   Guard the drugs well boys, we wouldn't want them to fall into the wrong hands.

Are you surprised?

The Anglo-Zionist empire has always dealt drugs.   They had a Jew selling opium to China in the 1800's.  The more things change the more they stay the same.  Deal drugs, steal  oil.....

Pro-Iran Gunmen 'Shooting Protesters'

The following article offers commentary on the protests in Iraq. Paid snipers killing both the security forces and the protesters.  The article suggests that Iran is behind the killings, however, we classify it as FAKE NEWS.  The article in question is by Patrick Cockburn (October 7, 2019) and called;  Death Toll in Iraq Soars as Pro-Iran Gunmen 'Shooting Protesters'  http://www.unz.com/pcockburn/death-toll-in-iraq-soars-as-pro-iran-gunmen-shooting-protesters/

Mission Accomplished

Before we look at the article perhaps a bit of "back grounding" and a gentle reminder why we have the mess in the first place.  Just two weeks ago I completed reading the "Green Zone".   You have probably heard of the movie with Jason Bourne and the hunt for the WMD.   The movie is of course fictional but the story-line was conceived from a screenplay written by Brian Helgeland, based on a 2006 non-fiction book Imperial Life in the Emerald City by journalist Rajiv Chandrasekaran. The book documented life within the Green Zone in Baghdad during the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Drawing on interviews and first hand experience the book demonstrates the absurdity, incompetence, cronyism and downright criminality involved by the US-led Coalition Provisional Authority. One critic calls it, "a tragic tale of naivety,hubris, waste and wilful ignorance".

Following 9/11, Dick Cheney was instrumental in providing a primary justification for a renewed war against Iraq. Cheney helped shape Bush's approach to the "War on Terror".  Cheney is the poster boy for neoconservative hubris. A member of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) he was also formerly the CEO of Halliburton.

Christian Bale recently portrayed  him in an autobiographical movie.  At the awards he "Thanked SATAN" for giving him inspiration for portraying Cheney.  The criminality, arrogance and stupidity of these people is rightly represented by the likes of Cheney.

 

This is what "freedom" looks like

The neoconservatives still refuse to admit to any mistakes.    In the famous words of Shrub "Mission Accomplished"

 

However, all the "gloating" aside on how easy it was to destroy and kill people with superior technology it will suffice to look at these slides and remind ourselves what a "liberated" Iraq looks like.

Baghdad Before After

This should make the warmongers hang their heads in shame.

 

 

Debunking the Story

After all that has happened we would say that the Iraqi people had the right to protest - especially the disenfranchised youth.  But who is killing both the protesters and the police?  The article (and the MSM) would have us believe that it is IRAN. Here are the facts:

  1. The current unrest in Iraq began a week ago after a prominent general was removed from his post
  2. US gave a travel warning for Iraq one week before the protests
  3. Iraqi Government supportive of Iran
  4. Location of protests near area where Iranians make cross border pilgrimage for up coming holy days

 

Perhaps the best articles for debunking the scenario are:

(His twitter page is worth a visit. Here is an article that takes a detailed look at Iran’s military capabilities: https://viableopposition.blogspot.com/2019/06/irans-military-strength-2019-edition.html  )

Precedent for false flags

Lest we forget, we already have a precedent with the Ukrainian (CIA) coup.   The protestors were fired on from nearby roofs by "unknown" snipers.  The Ukraine snipers fired at both police and protesters. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-17/another-false-flag-terror-admission-snipers-ukraine-%E2%80%9Cprotests%E2%80%9D

Same play book?

 

Conclusion

The Unz review is usually pretty good but this story looks like propaganda.  This article seeks to blame Iran and the Iraqi Government.  This is "blow-back" because the US actually allowed Iraqis to vote. The majority Shiite population voted for an Iraqi government sympathetic to Iran.  Oh dear, if only they had left Saddam in power, at least he suppressed the Shiites.  Well I suppose you can't fix neocon stupid. Seems like even Satan has his limitations.  The internet has been taken out in this area, so we have no way to confirm anything but it appears the current government of Iraq is under siege.  With Turkey kicking the USA out of Northern Syria it seems that Iraq has similar ideas (removing the US).  Is the current government opposing US perpetual occupation?  Perhaps that is why we are seeing protests and another regime change is on the cards.
