Why Iran and North Korea are best buddies
The American libertarian Tom Luongo a former Research Chemist operates a blog that has an interesting article on the nexus between North Korea and Iran. He demonstrates convincingly that they split up the job of acquiring a nuclear capability with North Korea making the bombs and Iran perfecting the delivery mechanism. That way they can avoid any agreement because they each have deniability –keeping the “letter” of the law while ignoring the Spirit. It seems that North Korea and Iran have been forced down this route because they cannot conduct détente with the likes of Trump’s Neo-conservative appointments – Pompeo and Bolton who have no interest in peace (only regime change and surrender). Links posted below…note that the article contains an internal link to Pompeo and his Evangelical –Zionist leanings and his belief that some sort of confrontation must be provoked in order to catalyze the “rapture”.

Wednesday, May 1, 2019 – the avowed deadline of the US “cutoff” of Iranian oil shipments to the last five un-sanctioned customers of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Those nations affected by the embargo are China and India as well as US treaty allies Japan, South Korea and Turkey according to World Israel News (WIN), April 24th, 2019.
The Trump administration renewed its vow early last week that these countries will no longer be able to purchase Iranian crude oil or other oil stocks while avoiding US sanctions as the US administration turns the screws tighter on the Iranians.The move is designed to place added pressure on Iran to halt its progress toward a nuclear weapon even at the expense of US allies.
It is said that the first portion of the sanctions program by the US has reduced Iranian exports of oil from over 2.5 million barrels per day to about one million barrels per day – a severe drop in revenues for Iran, which is palpably feeling the economically depressing force. The increased pressure would virtually halt all Iran’s income from world trade if it can be enforced.
The move is extremely hurtful to Iran which exports almost nothing other than oil. The interim period of allowing curtailed exports had been allowed so that Iran’s customers could arrange alternative sources for their feed stocks of oil. It is said to be a real hardship for some of these nations because the Iranian crude oil is admittedly the most easily refinable and some of the cheapest crude oil on the market. Of these nations, we have read that, even over its objection to the sanctions, President Recip Tayyip Erdogan’s Turkey has quietly made strides in developing other sources.
But China has just warned the US not to make any “wrong moves” in the affair. Indeed, a Chinese spokesman for the foreign ministry stated last week that “Beijing opposes the Trump administration’s ‘unilateral sanctions and so-called long-arm jurisdiction’ over Iran” according to a report in WIN.
Consequences Stated –Will there be consequences for the world if the US enforces the sanctions?
The Iranians have boldly stated that if the US does not relent it may close the Straits of Hormuz to all shipping.Why is that important? Well, to understand why it is, one needs be familiar with the geography of the Persian Gulf and surrounding lands. Following is a satellite image of the critical waterway. It is just 21 miles (33km) wide at its narrowest point but the designated shipping lane is only two miles wide in either direction. The remaining space is presumably too shallow for safe navigation, thus its name, “The Strait….”
The Persian Gulf is the body of water on the left; the Gulf of Oman (Arabian Sea) is to the right. The Strait is the critical outlet of the Persian Gulf to the open waters of the world’s oceans and is the “bottleneck” through which about 30% of the world’s crude oil is shipped.
A blockage of this critical waterway would wreak havoc on the world oil markets and cause prices to escalate sharply and perhaps out of control. (Sourced from the splinters news letter).
The Coup in Venezuela
The “big picture” is that Pompeo and Bolton are keen to install an American puppet in Venezuela in order to secure alternative oil sources while they bear down on Iran and cause untold misery for other countries –especially China and Russia (who will not play ball on this).
But why is the USA behaving this way?
The NYT posted a cartoon of Trump being led by Bibbi (Benjamin Netanyahu) that has been widely condemned as anti-Semitic. It is a fact that global anti-Semitism is on the rise and that is to be condemned but what are the reasons behind the rise in ill-feeling? Could it be that US Middle East policy is being led by the Neo-Conservatives (predominately Jews) and by Christian-Zionists? They want to Balkanize the Middle East (and have been successful doing so) creating a flood of refugees into Europe (a death blow to Christianity). The last remaining obstacle is Iran (ancient Persia) who refuses to give up their weapons or watch their country destroyed (who can blame them?). Of course we know of Iran’s state sponsored terrorism (Hezbollah etc) and their antagonism towards a Jewish state but they are afraid of Zionist (with US support) expansionism. In the big picture view Zionism and American “exceptionalism” is as dangerous (even more so) than any Russia interference (Gog invasion?).
….the Middle East is a mess because of the Neo-conservatives (a Jewish movement)
See the JEWISH Newspaper Haaretz –
The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservative intellectuals, most of them Jewish,
The Neo-conservative plan was to defeat 7 nations in five years
The Plan — according to Jewish U.S. General Wesley Clark (Ret.)
The Zionists want to build a “greater Israel” (Yinon plan)
“Greater Israel” Project and Balkanization of Syria:
Jews own half the wealth in the USA and are politically extremely influential the Jewish billionaire Sorros supported Clinton and the Jewish billionaire Adelson supported Trump Jared Kushner is Jewish and many Trump supporters are Christian Zionists (Bannon and Bolton come to mind). Israel has at the very least used ISIS to further its own ends:
Blessing the Jews
God will bless those who bless the Jews and curse those who curse them. If you want to bless the Jews try preaching the Gospel to them without fear or favour…..and remember;
“Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers” (Rom 11.28).
They must turn return to God and accept his messiah. Jacob cannot do this in his own strength –or he will find himself wrestling God. Any land they conquer and any peace deal they conclude will not endure. The curtain is being drawn to one side and people are beginning to see the machinations of Jacob the deceiver. There will be a back-lash:
“And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire” (Rev 17.16).
Only when Jacob has overcome his old nature will he be renamed as Israel (God is ruler/prince).
