Apparently war has been averted. The Pentagon announced on Tuesday that US defense posturing and military build-up in the Persian Gulf has thwarted potential attacks on Americans. Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said Iran was forced to “put on hold” plans to harm American troops and their allies in the region:
“I think our steps were very prudent and we’ve put
on hold the potential for attacks on Americans and
that is what is extremely important,” Shanahan told
reporters at the Pentagon, though without giving specifics.
He added that Iran was ultimately forced to "recalculate"
its aggression". 
This adds to a number of other recent impressive US victories such as Syria and Venezuela (one wonders why these countries resist democracy, liberty and freedom when they could have the opportunity to become free like Iraq and Libya).
It looks like every single western country on Pompeo’s warmongering tour saw through the fake sabotage of tankers for the false flag lame effort that it was, forcing the US and (((allies))) to reconsider their plans to start a war against Iran or at least change their methodology.
The USA et al did everything to try and provoke Iran.
Abusive and threatening posturing, placing an aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers in their backyard….constantly accusing them (“credible intelligence”) of preparing to attack. Iran responded by, doing……….. Nothing. Well I guess all we can do is declare victory over their aggression.
The internet is a nuisance because even when you control the main stream media and arrest journalists like Assange the truth still leaks out. Expect a further global clamp down on internet freedoms. I hope someone suggests the Donald for a Nobel peace prize but it is probably best to wait until after the “Deal of the Century”.
In any case, the warmongers have been humiliated but not deterred. This merely postpones the inevitable – new methods must be sought.
