Perhaps we need a nice little war to keep us all afraid and distracted. Maybe the asteroid will hit the bankers and do us all a favor. All wars are banker wars. If you took the bankers out of the equation the world would be much more peaceful.

You may have missed this so I apologize for previously featuring it but the reason they (Saudi and Israel etc) want to subjugate Yemen is because they want that whole Peninsula for their smart cities and economic zone which will stretch from the Euphrates to the Nile.
IDF redefines its “red line” on Iran’s nuclear program – TV7 Israel News 15.12.21 (12 min)
This is two weeks old but still relevant. JCPOA Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action an agreement concerning nuclear weapons reached with China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, United States and Germany in 2015 from which Trump walked away in 2017 despite Iran honoring the deal.
The war between Saudi and Yemen is really a proxy war between Israel (and the West) and Iran. Qasem Soleimani the Iranian major general who was assassinated by the United States (Israel) via a drone strike at Baghdad International Airport was trying to establish peace with Saudi Arabia. They did not want peace or the Arab nations uniting….they want balkanization and they supported ISIS. We know who was behind 911. So now you are seeing the backlash from Yemen (Iran). Meanwhile Israel is extending its reach in the Arab world and trying to isolate Iran.

Kevork Almassian is a Syrian Christian and he offers a very interesting overview on recent Middle Eastern events.
Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Gulf countries severed diplomatic relations with Lebanon, claiming that they won’t restore ties until the latter reclaim its sovereignty. But is that really the case? Kevork Almassian dives deep into the root causes of the ongoing diplomatic crisis.

Unlike the previous raids, the Syrian army sent a strong message to Israel last week by firing an S-200 missile that followed the Israeli warplane over the Lebanese air space. This could change the rules of engagement between Syria and Israel, according to Kevork Almassian.

Accident at Iranian Nuclear Plant Natanz
An “unspecified attack” has occurred at Iran’s nuclear facility at Natanz only one day after it began operating a group new of IR-9 centrifuges which separate uranium isotopes about fifty times more efficiently than Iran’s older centrifuges.
The incident is said to have been an acute electrical failure which can severely damage such delicate and finely-tuned technical equipment.
There seems little doubt that the incident was the result of a cyber attack in the thinking of Western analysts. Iran’s parliament also thinks it was as well. Iran’s PressTV reported that “The cause of the incident is under investigation.”
This morning (Sunday) at an address at Mt. Herzl National Cemetery, IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi seemed to hint that the source was Israel. He said “The Israel Defense Forces’ actions throughout the Middle East are not hidden from our enemies’ eyes. They are watching us, seeing our capabilities and carefully considering their next steps.” He added, “Thanks to sophisticated operational activity, this past year has been one of the most secure Israel’s citizens have ever known. We will continue to act with might and with judgment, with determination and responsibility, to ensure the security of the state of Israel.” <>World Israel News
Israel not bound by any Iranian Deal – Prime Minister Netanyahu
April 7th. Holocaust Remembrance Day. In a speech from Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, PM Benjamin Netanyahu leveled a warning at the Biden administration and any others who may be seeking to re-enter the Iran nuclear deal. “We are not bound in any way to an agreement with Iran that paves the way for nuclear weapons. We are obligated to only one thing: to prevent anyone who seeks to destroy us from carrying out their plot.”
Speaking from Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu directed a warning at the Biden administration and others seeking to reenter the Iran deal.” The U.S. has reportedly assured consultation with Israel before entering the deal, but the rapidity of the discussions raises the question as to whether Israel has had any input. The original agreement was signed by former President Obama but was abandoned by former President Trump in 2018. <>World Israel News
Iranian Ship Damaged byMines in the Red Sea
The Vienna-based JCPOA talks between the U.S. and Iran have resumed; Israel is disturbed and wary of the possible results and is saying so. Its claim is that of PM Netanyahu: “A return to the JCPOA is not going to bring security and stability to the Middle East” (Wall St. Journal).
An example of its non-effectiveness was illustrated by an Israeli response that same day far to the southeast – in the Red Sea between Yemen and Djibouti – where a cargo ship belonging to Iran was hit by limpet mines attached to its hull, apparently by Israel.
The Iranian ship Saviz is a cargo ship being used as a sea base by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, and has been anchored in the same location for many months. It tracks the maritime traffic of hostile nations for the Iranian regime.
Presumably Israel attached the explosives to the ship’s hull on the very day the US-Iran nuclear talks resumed in order to underline Israel’s vigilance and determination. It was another event in the warfare at sea that has been underway between Israel and Iran for months.
Israel’s objection to the JCPOA is that it does not stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, but simply delays that until 2030.
PM Netanyahu had warned the world that “We will always know how to defend ourselves by ourselves from those who seek to kill us.”
The Saviz incident was only the latest in a tit-for-tat exchange of blows between the Iranians and Israel. In March, Iran attacked a cargo ship owned by an Israeli businessman Udi Angel, transiting the Arabian Sea. Another incident around the same time was the contamination of all the Mediterranean beaches of Israel by oil spilled (perhaps intentionally) from an Iranian vessel smuggling oil to Syria. <>JPost
Israel Admits Attacking Iran’s Nuclear Programme, As Cyber-Attack Derails Iranian Nuke Plant
Israel acknowledged that it was behind a cyberattack on Iran’s main nuclear facility on April 11. The cyberattack took place hours after officials at the Natanz reactor restarted spinning advanced centrifuges. These centrifuges could speed up the production of enriched uranium. Watch the video to know more.
Iran reports accident at main nuclear facility
Iran has reported an accident at its main nuclear facility at Natanz. Tehran’s Atomic Agency says it affected the site’s electrical distribution grid. Power was out across the facility’s above-ground workshops and underground enrichment halls. On Saturday, President Hassan Rouhani said Tehran had launched new advanced enrichment centrifuges at the site. This is after several centrifuges were damaged in a fire last year – an incident Tehran called an ‘act of sabotage’. And Iran is high on the agenda as the U-S Secretary of Defence Lloyd Austin visits Israel. Tensions in the region have been escalating in recent weeks.
Saudi Arabia Suffers From Houthi Attacks. Is There A New Job For Turkey’s Mercenaries?
A short video on the Yemen situation. Don’t agree with his “fallen angel” stuff but I have no doubt that the whole “peace process” is the prelude to a false messiah. The war drums are definitely beating. He is spot on in his remarks about Christian-Zionism.
At least 26 people were killed in an attack on Aden’s airport as Yemen’s new unity government disembarked from an aircraft.
Deadly attack at Aden airport in #Yemen has killed at least 22 & injured over 50. The explosion happened shortly after new government’s plane arrived from Saudi Arabia.#Houthi rebels have been accused of the terrorist act.
O’Donnell interviewed MBS for 60 minutes (see below for a brief clip):
Oil prices would likely soar to “unimaginable” highs that we “haven’t seen in our lifetimes” as global supplies are disrupted.
“If the world does not take a strong and firm action to deter Iran, we will see further escalations that will threaten world interests. Oil supplies will be disrupted and oil prices will jump to unimaginably high numbers that we haven’t seen in our lifetimes.”
Finally, touching on the issue of a ceasefire in Yemen, MbS said Saudi Arabia is working diligently toward peace. He added that he considers the Houthi-backed ceasefire a “positive step.”
Not long after, O’Donnell wrapped up the interview with a final question: “What lessons have you learned? And have you made mistakes?
“Of course I’ve made mistakes,” MbS insisted.
"Even prophets make mistakes, so how come we, as humans, expect not to make mistakes?"
Well I don’t know any prophets who saw people into pieces….mind you Manasseh had the prophet Isaiah sawed in half. Perhaps it is a middle east tradition handed down by despots? (p.s. MBS is opening his country up to tourism. Book now and get your visa’s to avoid the rush. Public executions are must see. No infidels allowed in Mecca or Medina. And no alcohol. And cover up. Have fun!!)
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:
And now a news rapport on how the repairs are going:
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….
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.”
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”
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.
Incontrovertible rock solid evidence that Iran attacked the innocent Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) for no reason at all. Al-Malki said a total of 18 drones and seven missiles were launched, including what he called Iranian Delta Wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
These missiles and drones traveled undetected from Iran over the Gulf waters passing over the US and UK armada and dozens of oil transports and other supply ships without being spotted. Then they struck the oil storage tanks from the opposite direction with perfect precision. Luckily the storage tanks did not explode because they were empty…but they gave off lots of smoke. This will shut down KSA production for months, possibly for years and push prices higher.
Actually, the fires have all been extinguished in less than a week. The damage seems to be minimal.
Oil output will be fully back online by end of September, Aramco IPO on track, Saudis say
The missiles and drones were not fired by Iran but by Houthi’s (if you believe that) but they were made by Iran and supplied by Iran therefore Iran is behind the attack. But who supplies KSA with its weapons with which it attacks Yemen??
The KSA held a conference to show the world its incontrovertible evidence:
And now exit center-left, Pomp-ass
Fake, Faker, Falseness
It is quite clear that the you have failed the CIA course that teaches you to “lie, cheat and steal” that you boast is part of the “glory” of the American experiment. Your chariots of glory will be your shame (Isa 22:18) you false Christian.
The truth is that one way or another we will never know exactly what (or who) lies behind this. It is perhaps coincidence that John Bolton was recently sacked, coincidence that Aramco requires higher oil prices for the upcoming IPO, coincidence that Bibi is struggling in his upcoming election, coincidence that the US and Israel are signing a mutual defense pact and coincidence that a nonpartisan institution, CSIS is the world’s #1 defense & national security think tank posted a tweet four days ago that warned about this very instillation being attacked. Could this be how the NeoCons save a flailing Netanyahu and establish a next election win for Trump?
However, Pompeo says that Iran is behind it and as Trump has sacked the warmonger Bolton they must be speaking the truth. They obviously do not want war. And Pompeo who lies and cheats and steals (his words not mine) is now telling the truth:
Are ye not entertained?
Frankly, at this point it doesn’t really matter “who did it”. Both Israel and the USA have demonstrated that they are determined for war. And Saudi Arabia has been decimating Yemen and perpetrating war crimes. So, if the Houthis have manged to strike at the Saudi’s (who don’t get their hands dirty but use mercenaries) good on them. Hit them where it hurts (in the pocket)….perhaps it will make the Saudi royals rethink when they have less to spend on Call Girls, drugs and yachts while exporting extreme Wahhabism all over the world. As one comment said;
Greatest strength, greatest weakness. All the Saudi Royalty had to do with its vast wealth is figure out a way to spread it around. Instead, in their malice and delusion, they wanted to become an imperial power. With less success than Italy. It could have become the Denmark of its neighborhood. Competent, modern, instead it painted bull's eyes on its back by exporting religious bigotry. Saudi Arabia, the last home of Idi Amin.
Moon of Alabama states that the Houthis claimed internal support from “the cooperation of honorable and free men within the Kingdom.” If true this would make the Saudi’s even more paranoid than usual. There is no love lost between MBS and some of the other royals that he ousted with a coup. On some of the drone attack videos gunfire can be heard….perhaps dissidents staged ground support? Also Moon of Alabama suggests that Iraq may have been a drone launch site (remember Israeli fighter jets recently attacked Iraq and the country has a Shiite majority).
Fox news just said 80% of Saudi production has shut down and Dept. of energy head Rick Perry says he will open up the Strategic oil reserve. Whoopee! Higher prices for all oil producers – at least the U.S. shale industry will benefit as will the float of Aramco. As long as the attacks are “manageable” it is win, win. What is not to like? Perhaps I am being too cynical.
The emerging Beast
What we are witnessing is the emergence of the Beast power in the Gulf region. It is an allegiance between the various Arab states with Israel in charge (the Harlot).
" And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast " (Rev 17:12-13).
The territory of the ten kings is that spoken of in Genesis 15:
Why Israel is quietly cosying up to Gulf monarchies
"Evidence is mounting of increasingly close ties between Israel and five of the six members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) – none of which have formal relations with the Jewish state".
“Cooperation in different ways and at different levels isn’t necessarily visible above the surface, but what is below the surface is far greater than at any other period.”
"But in spite of these recent flashes of publicity, hard evidence of Israeli ties with the Gulf states is still rare – because they remain largely covert".
"The Israelis quietly participated in joint military exercises with UAE forces, both in the US and in Greece, from 2016. Last year UAE military personnel reportedly visited an Israeli airbase to review the operations of US-made F-35 fighter jets, though this was denied by Israel. Clandestine cooperation is believed to include Israeli intelligence surveillance of Iran, and the sale of Israeli drones used in the war in Yemen".
"In addition to shared contempt for Iran, the Gulf states and Israel have been brought together by a common hostility to Islamist parties".
"The attitudes of Gulf governments have clearly changed. But the bottom line is that Israel has failed to provide the incentives required for the Saudis and their allies to come out of the closet, to allow them to reconcile geopolitical logic with popular sentiment, because it has not offered anything approaching an acceptable deal for the Palestinians. “Everyone knows about the rapprochement with Israel, but no one can talk about it publicly, and no one can advocate it because there is nothing for the Palestinians in return,” concludes an Arab analyst in Abu Dhabi. “The assumption is that if it was going to happen openly, it would have to be in return for something big, and it does not look as though that is going to happen."
By “his wife” the article means that the Jewish billionaire and extreme Zionist Sheldon Adelson who supports both Netanyahu’s and Trump, recently turned against Bibi;
"To add reputational insult to injury, Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, Bibi’s stalwart U.S. financial supporters, are reported by the Israeli press to have told authorities investigating Netanyahu’s alleged corruption that the prime minister’s wife, Sarah, is “crazy” and “decides everything.” That will not help the PM at the polls."
As one commentator remarks;
They are trying to keep people from connecting the dots. Trying to reverse perception after their exposure at apex. Its the same BS with the phony fight between Mossad Jewish Mafia-Zuckerberg and Bibi. Saw more of that today with other stuff too. Reminiscent of the old Soros is after Israel bit. Its amazing how well these simple productions can work. Too late for that now though. Next it will be Bezos vs. The Intel community...lol
Looks like they are getting ready to introduce us either to “Dear Leader” or perhaps the “antichrist” or maybe they are one and the same thing? After-all, they all seem to want total control, religious or otherwise:
Use algo’s to mind read
Use algo’s to data-mine
Use algo’s to psychologically profile and manipulate
It seems that despite the legal shenanigans in a US-court the Grace-1 tanker has been released.
The Supreme Court in the British territory of Gibraltar has approved the release of an Iranian oil tanker that was seized last month by the United Kingdom, despite last-minute efforts by the United States to halt its release.
Clown Prince MBS
It seems that the clown prince has also been outsmarted by the Houthis and their Iranian allies. He may be called Mohammad bin Salman (son of Solomon) he is not. Solomon was wise enough to propose cutting a baby in half to ascertain the true mother. The clown prince ain’t no Solomon even though he wants to cut people up with a bone saw.
This is what Tom Luongo has to say;
The Houthis attacked the Shaybah oilfield and refinery complex which produces more than 1 million barrels of oil per day. This is a direct attack on the Saudis’ ability to function as a somewhat sustainable economic and political power.
Apparently, the Houthis now make their own drones with help from Iran (who learnt a lot from the US drones that they shot down). These drones are not sophisticated and probably per-programmed but they fly 1,000 km and hit the target (oil infrastructure). Saudi is already struggling with a deficit and this will make things worse. Looks like they will be forced to talk peace (and postpone fantasy land neom) – serves them right for picking on their neighbor.
The Saudis have already lost so much in their botched attempt to overthrow Bashar al-Assad in Syria, the blockade of Qatar and to force a political realignment in Lebanon. None of Mohammed bin Salman’s strong arm tactics have succeeded in doing anything other than alienate more members of the Gulf Cooperation Council and put his benefactors in Washington in very hot water, politically.
