    "The reason for the Patriot missiles is not to deter Iran from an attack, but to prevent successful Iranian response to an attack on Iran.

    This is the likely situation: The deal between the Washington Ziocons and Netanyahu is that either Israel will attack an American ship or whatever is selected, and it will be blamed on Iran, thus forcing Trump to “defend America” and retaliate, or Israel using American disguise will attack Iran, thus provoking a response from Iran."

    "Trump is clearly set-up. If Bolton and Netanyahu want the US at war with Iran, it is their call."


    "The stakes for Russia are higher in Iran than in Syria. Russia can stand aside only at huge cost to itself.

    China also has an interest. Until the Russian energy pipeline to China is completed, China needs Iranian oil. Disruption of Iran by chaos is a way of throttling China by reducing China’s energy supply.

    The war that Bolton and Netanyahu are preparing to spring on Trump is likely to be much larger than they think."

    At a meeting of President Trump’s top national security aides last Thursday, Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan presented an updated military plan that envisions sending as many as 120,000 troops to the Middle East should Iran attack American forces or accelerate work on nuclear weapons, administration officials said.

    There is no bloody nose attack.

    There is no 'no boots on the ground'.

    This would be the most devastating war for the United States since at least Vietnam.

    Any bombastic warhawk who tells you otherwise should plan on sending their own kids and not mine.

    I honestly don't think America will attack Iran as Iran has so many options in which to respond.

    Hezbollah could launch massive land, sea and air attacks on Israel.

    Hamas and PIJ could launch massive attacks against Ashdod and Tel Aviv.

    Iran backed forces in syria could attack Israel in the Golan heights.

    The Shia militia in Iraq could attack US bases in Iraq and overrun the so called green zone.

    The Houthis could unleash massive ballistic missile and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia and UAE.

    The PMF could launch cross border attacks into Saudi Arabia from Iraq.

    Shia Afghan fighters who fought for Assad in Syria could launch massive attacks on main US base in Afghanistan.

    Iran could easily destroy the Saudi and UAE oilfields with its vast ballistic missile arsenal and destroy the global economy as a result.

    Iran's warning to Donald Trump: 'Don't test us'

    Iran’s ambassador to the UK has - in an exclusive interview with Sky News - given a stark warning about the prospect of war in the Middle East.

    With America threatening to send 120,000 troops to the region, Hamid Baeidinejad broke his silence to spell out his country’s readiness for war in his first ever interview with a British television channel.

    Iran’s Khamenei Rules out War with US
    https://aawsat.com/english/home/arti...les-out-war-us

    Iranian supreme leader Ali Khamenei ruled out on Tuesday war erupting with the United States in wake of mounting tensions with Tehran over its nuclear capabilities and missile program.
    “There won’t be any war. The Iranian nation has chosen the path of resistance,” Khamenei was cited as saying by the state media.
    “We don’t seek a war, and they don’t either. They know it’s not in their interests.”
    Iran would not negotiate with the United States on another nuclear deal, he told senior officials.

    "I don’t advocate military action against Iran. I’m simply delivering the message that if Iran were to attack the United States, it would be a grave miscalculation on their part and there would be a furious response," he said.

    US claims of Iran threat to coalition forces in Middle East rejected by British general
    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/w...-a8914191.html




    A British general, Chris Ghika, serving in Iraq has rejected claims from the White House that coalition forces in the Middle East are facing an increased threat from Iran or its allies. “No, there has been no increased threat from Iranian-backed forces in Iraq and Syria,” he said, according to Reuters. “We are aware of their presence clearly and we monitor them along with a whole range of others because that is the environment we are in.”

    “Gen Ghika’s comments seem to confirm our worst fears, that the Trump administration is lying about intelligence in order to build the case for another catastrophic war of choice in the Middle East,” said Jon Rainwater, executive director of Peace Action, a California-based group that works to find peaceful solutions to strategic problems.


    US rebukes British general on Iran as it orders embassy staff to leave Iraq
    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...embassy-staff/


    The United States has publicly rebuked a senior British general who challenged claims that Iranian-backed groups are preparing to mount attacks against Western assets in the Middle East.

    The extraordinary move came after Major General Chris Ghika, the deputy commander of Operation Inherent Resolve, the US-led coalition against Islamic State, said that there was no increased threat from pro-Iranian groups in Iraq and Syria.

    Hours later the US military disowned the British general's comments and directly contradicted him.

    US Central Command, which is responsible for US military operations in the Middle East, claimed both US forces and their allies - including the mission Maj Gen Ghika is deputy commander of - are aware of and have responded to the threat.

    "Recent comments from OIR's Deputy Commander run counter to identified credible threats available to intelligence from US and allies regarding Iranian-backed forces in the region," said Captain Bill Urban in a statement.

    "US Central Command, in coordination with Operation Inherent Resolve, has increased the force posture level for all service members assigned to OIR in Iraq and Syria. As a result, OIR is now at a high level of alert as we continue to closely monitor credible and possibly imminent threats to US forces in Iraq."

    U.S. officials have said they believe Iranian combat divers were behind the attacks on four oil tankers near the Persian Gulf over the weekend, and they tell CBS News senior national security correspondent David Martin there's still no sign Iran is backing off purported plans to attack Americans in the region.

    Martin said American officials have him there is "credible" and "urgent" intelligence that Iran has ordered Shiite militias in Iraq to prepare to conduct attacks against U.S. troops and diplomats in the country.

    Riyadh submits letter to UN Security Council denouncing Iran and Houthis

    Saudi Arabia submitted on Wednesday a letter to the United Nations Security Council, in which it held Iran and the Yemeni Houthi group responsible for targeting their oil facilities on Tuesday.

    The letter was handed over by the Permanent Representative of Saudi Arabia to the United Nations, Abdallah Al-Mouallimi, according to Saudi TV channel Al Arabiya.

    The letter included “Saudi Arabia’s holding of Iran and the Houthi militias it supports fully responsible for Tuesday’s attack on the kingdom’s oil facilities.”

    According to the same source, a joint message was sent from Saudi Arabia and the UAE to the UN Security Council and UN Secretary-General Antůnio Guterres, on the attack and sabotage operation that occurred last Sunday against four ships in the international sea off the UAE’s territorial sea and coasts.

    On Tuesday, Saudi Arabia announced that bombed drones attacked two oil-pumping stations from the Eastern Province fields to Yanbu Commercial Port on the western coast by the Houthi group.

    The attack came hours after the Houthis announced the launch of seven drones, and the carrying out of attacks on vital Saudi facilities, according to the group’s TV channel Al Masirah.

    On Monday, Riyadh announced that two Saudi carriers had been hit by a sabotage attack on their way to cross the Persian Gulf near the UAE’s territorial sea.

    Riyadh’s announcement came after the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement, in which it said that four merchant ships of several nationalities (not identified), were subjected to sabotage operations near the territorial sea on the way to the Port of Fujairah.

    A tanker carrying Iranian fuel oil has reached its destination at a Chinese port and has unloaded its cargo in storage tanks, Reuters reports, citing shipping data. The shipment violates U.S. sanctions against Iran after Washington removed sanction waivers for eight importers of Iranian crude and oil products including China.
    The unloading of the cargo—130,000 tons of fuel oil—was confirmed to Reuters by an official from the oil storage terminal in Zhoushan. Another official, however, denied the cargo came from Iran since the Zhoushan terminal had not received Iranian oil for four years.


    Reuters notes, however, that Iranian exporters have been using things like ship-to-ship transfer of the cargo offshore and forged documents saying the cargoes were Iraqi oil to evade sanctions since November 2018. The tanker that docked at Zhoushan was one of those sailing with forged documents, Reuters said.
