Where Does Trump Go From Here With Iran?

The way forward

Iran will not be imploding economically. Last Friday, Russia signalled its commitment to secure Iran’s oil and banking sectors, should the EU’s pathetic INSTEX mechanism is not effective by 7 of July.Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Friday that Moscow is ready to help Iran export its crude and ease restrictions on its banking system should Europe fail to make INSTEX a viable mechanism. China too, has stated that “normal energy dealings” with Tehran are in accordance with law, and should be respected. The Central Bank of Iran said this week that Iran has climbed past the peak of sanctions and oil exports are on the rise again.The nonsensical notion of Iran on the cusp of collapse is a meme being peddled by various ignorant and diluted Iranian exiles looking for a job in DC as “experts” on Iran, the MEK terrorist cult with membership largely limited to its now aging pool of members who had originally joined the group in the 1970's and the 1980's, US prominent hawks, and Netanyahu, the war criminal that pushed for the 2003 illegal Invasion of Iraq with his lies in US Congress. The only solution for Trump is a humiliating journey of return to the JCPOA, and a hope to call the defeat as ‘victory’. President Putin will educate Trump in regards to this ancient, 8,000 years old civilization; “Iran”.

Russia’s National Security Advisor Nikolai Patrushev made it clear in his remarks that Russia stands behind Iran and that it will not tolerate any more aggression by the US. “In the context of the statements made by our partners with regard to a major regional power, namely Iran, I would like to say the following: Iran has always been and remains our ally and partner, with which we are consistently developing relations both on bilateral basis and within multilateral formats,” Patrushev said after the trilateral meeting. “This is why we believe that it is inadmissible to describe Iran as a major threat to regional security and, moreover, to put it on par with the Islamic State or any other terrorist organization,” Patrushev stated.

I am sorry for not bombing Iran

John Bolton Flies to Israel to Apologize for Not Bombing Iran, Says He Will Do It Soon.

This is a funny video, Bibi says that it is Iran that is on a campagin of aggression
They stirred up the trouble in Syria?
They destroyed Libya etc?
This is palpably a false narrative.
Who started all this with the twin towers?
Whatever your theory might be.....one thing is certain it was not Iran (and it was not Saddam).
Who benefits?


Stay tuned

John Bolton stood in front of an Israeli flag at a podium identifying him as an employee of the Prime Minister of Israel.

Yes Master

Yes Master















“Neither Iran nor any other hostile actor should mistake
U.S. prudence and discretion for weakness,” Bolton said.
“No one has granted them a hunting license in the Middle East.”


He spoke in Jerusalem alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Bolton said he is in the Middle East for previously scheduled meetings with Israeli and Russian security advisors. And he warned Iran that the U.S. remains a formidable adversary. “Our military is rebuilt, new and ready to go,” Bolton said.

Does Iran Already Have Nuclear Weapons?

It is quite possible that Iran alredy has nuclear weapons that it purchased from failed communists states. After all a number have gone "missing". If that is the case Iran could still do damage even though it does not have the capability (like Israel) of weaponizing uranium.

No credibility


In a Fox News video published on You Tube on Jul 24, 2018, Tucker Carlson argued that an Iran war would destroy Trump's presidency. Retired Army Colonel Douglas MacGregor warned that such a war would have wider implications dragging in Russia and China [1] and warned (nearly a year ago) that the Neo-Conservatives would use a “Gulf of Tonkin” false flag attack as an excuse for war. [2]   PressTVUK has produced a good video that lays out the events in a sequential manner and analyses them critically. [3] 

False Flag Cartoon

Ben Garrison Cartoon















Israeli News Live

Israeli News Live has a perceptive analysis that adds a lot more intelligence information. [4]  Over the past decade, Bolton has endorsed regime change in Tehran at the hands of the People’s Mujahedeen of Iran (MEK) an extremely marginal group with no support inside Iran but some support in the Diaspora. Only in 2012 did the State Department delist the MEK as a terrorist group, which is ironic in light of the fact that they recently listed the IRG (Iranian Republican Guard) as terrorists. In other words MEK has been restored to favour to foment trouble.   Both Bolton and Rudy Giuliani (from Trump’s inner circle) have spoken at MEK events at home and abroad and last fall Rudy Giuliani told Iranian dissidents in Times Square that regime change is “going to happen.”[5] According to the video it is these MEK dissidents that purchased Iranian patrol boats to conduct the false flag.  If this is correct then it bears uncanny echoes of the story related by journalist Seymour Hersh regarding a brain-storming session conducted with Neocons and Vice President Dick Cheney where it was proposed to build fake Iranian patrol boats and man them with disguised Seals for a false flag attack. [6] Of course, the CENTCOM video could be a simple rescue mission (as suggested on a previous post). There are many reasons to regard the official narrative as suspect.

Mysterious Blazes

Another interesting and under-reported fact is the Mysterious Blazes on Six Iranian Ships in Iranian Ports  [7] which according to the video was the work of mercenary frogmen hired by Saudi Arabia in response to the Houthi sabotage of their pipeline.

No Credibility

The retired American Politician Ron Paul says that  Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's rush to judgement that Iran was behind the apparent attacks on two tanker ships last week has not galvanized world opinion against Iran, as the neocons hoped. Instead, it was met with high scepticism even among Washington's closest allies. Has the neocon practice of massively exaggerating and endlessly issuing threats finally destroyed US credibility on the world stage? [8]

Color images confirm Iranian sabotage

It must be true...it is in technicolor!

The Pentagon has released a time-line and color enhanced video shots that establish beyond doubt…..absolutely nothing (LOL). It seems to me more likely that the video was originally in color and then deliberately degraded.

Color attack Photo

What you apparently see are a number of Iranian special forces (in high visibility life-jackets) rescuing the crew removing a mine.  It is interesting that the patrol boat is alongside the T-with-arrow marking as this is exactly amidships and therefore has the least roll and sway for attaching a Jacob’s rescue ladder.[1]   Notice the time stamp (13:18) and the very long shadows (sun should be overhead casting small shadows) notice the white draft gauge markings (not present on the CENTCOM image of the current tanker). Even if the story is true (sic) the Iranians are removing mines not placing them.  If they are removing a mine they are doing it in an incredibly stupid, nonchalant and unprofessional manner. Of course this critique has already been per-empted by the ABC;

“The officials described the attempt to remove the unexploded
mine in the way shown in the images as "very high risk"
and not a way that the U.S. Navy would have ever undertaken.
According to those officials they would have removed the mine
remotely with as few personnel around the ship as possible”.

So, the Iranians who supposedly planted the mine were too stupid to know how to safely remove it (LOL).

Torpedo or Missile?

Was a "harpoon" responsible for the damage?

It has been pointed out that if the tanker was hit above the waterline it could hardly be a torpedo and crew members reported something flying. It seems likely that the weapon was a submarine launched harpoon attack. The harpoon has recently been re-commissioned after successful trails.










“……typically if you shoot a Harpoon and it 
hits above the waterline it’ll punch a hole
and blow up but it won’t sink a ship”.[1]

Father of a lie

Lies and more lies

Below are some links to must read articles that delve deeper into the Iranian tanker incident. Often the truth is only found in the alternative media although sometimes the comments under the articles can be abrasive and often rude or down right racist some of the comments carry useful insights.....here is one such comment:


  1. A torpedo becomes a mine, and is now possibly a flying object
  2. The USA, who everyone knows is wanting to start a war, releases a blurred and grainy video of a boat (could be any boat) next to a ship (could be any ship). Where is the evidence that this is the ship that was attacked? Where's the smoke or charring?
  3. Several dozen people on board the boat. Are these the sailors being rescued by the Iranians, and if so, isn't removing a mine in front of witness rather stupid?
  4. Why place a mine above the waterline where it can be easily seen, instead of BELOW the waterline?
  5. When & where do you place the mine? When the ship is out at sea (and can be seen) or when it's at port (in UAE and Saudi)? Either way, how can you place a mine and not be seen? Surely carrying a mine around a busy port would invite some questions?
  6. In any crime there has to be Motive, Means and Opportunity. Whilst Iran may technically have the means, being one of the most spied on countries on earth limits opportunity. As to motive, how idiotic would it be to do something like this knowing that the USA, Israel and Saudi are itching for an excuse to start a fight? Rather like Syrians 'gassing' the terrorists right after the Syrian army has made significant gains, and inviting USA freedom missiles to rain down on their heads.
  7. Houthi (supposed) proxies have been quick to claim retaliatory attacks on Saudi pipelines and airports. If this is indeed them, why the silence in this case?

So in summary, this is another idiotic WMD false flag event.


This blog is not partisan to either Israel, Iran  or the USA.  We stand against hypocrisy and lies.  Iran is a Shia Muslim community and it is under sharia law. It is an imperfect society and has many flaws. It reserves the right to self-defense and should not have war thrust upon it. Iran inherited the legacy of ancient Persia and on the whole treats its Jews and Christian communities with respect.  Israel is a Zionist state that has returned in unbelief, it has demonstrated itself to be belligerent and aggressive and religious Talmudists are intolerant. America is a world Empire controlling the reserve currency Petro dollar ("In God we Trust") it has become morally corrupt, controlled by special interests and promotes the welfare warfare industry of the deep state. Within this paradigm Christian-Zionists form the "mouth piece"  for special interests and shamefully align themselves with the king of this world.

Debunking the narrative

How do these people think?

The above image (large version) shows the weakness in the narrative. Most people will believe what they are told because "the lady on the TV news said it was true".  It is obvious that the general public is treated with contempt and the powers that be don't even try very hard anymore to construct a plausible narrative. It has become blatant and in your face.

Karl Rove (George W. Bush's senior advisor and chief political strategist. On February 8, 2005, Rove was appointed deputy chief of staff in charge of policy) is a good example of how these people think:


The aide said that guys like me were "in what we call the reality-based
community," which he defined as people who "believe that solutions
emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality." I nodded and
murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism.
He cut me off. "That's not the way the world really works anymore.
" He continued "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create
our own reality. And while you're studying that reality—judiciously,
as you will—we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you
can study too, and that's how things will sort out.
We're history's actors … and you, all of you, will be
left to just study what we do." [1]

All politicians operate within an Orwellian nimbus
where words don't mean what they normally mean,
but Rovism posits that there is no objective,
verifiable reality at all. Reality is what you say it is, ...[2]

Reality is what you say it is...

No it is not.  You will face the reality of Judgement Day and will realize that truth and justice are absolute and they are What God says it is.  In the meantime this blog will will employ truth and satire to expose the lies. Israel will have no peace until they return to God. They cannot "create their own reality".  All war mongers will be punished whether they be Jew or Gentile as will all who make and worship a lie.
