Press TV: Iran threatened by possible US Air Force mutiny

Iran threatened by possible US Air Force mutiny


By Gordon Duff and Press TV

“There have been serious concerns as to good order and discipline since it was discovered that the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs had been used as a recruiting ground for extremist sects. In a series of reports by the Military Religious Freedom Foundation headed by Mikey Weinstein, a litany of serious violations including indoctrination in extremist beliefs has become commonplace in the Air Force. The memorandum advised close monitoring of military and civilian branches of the government for threats citing both “vast espionage” and use of “violence.”


Recent intelligence sources have revealed that at least one and perhaps as many as three KC 135 Stratotankers have left the United States, traversing the Pacific Ocean, for use in refueling Israeli attack aircraft on missions against Iran.

Sources indicate that at least one of these aircraft, said to belong to a command of the Arizona Air National Guard stationed at Sky Harbor IAP/ANGB near Phoenix, may be the source of the missing aircraft.

That would indicate, were this the case, that the 197th Air Refueling Command Squadron was involved.

We have direct witness confirmation of one of these aircraft involved in behavior “outside any possible mission parameters.”

There have been serious concerns as to good order and discipline since it was discovered that the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs had been used as a recruiting ground for extremist sects.

In a series of reports by the Military Religious Freedom Foundation headed by Mikey Weinstein, a litany of serious violations including indoctrination in extremist beliefs has become commonplace in the Air Force.

A further indication of a possible threat was referred to by President Barack Obama when, on November 21, 2012, while returning from his Far East trip, a memorandum was issued warning of “Insider Threats” against the “US Government and the nation.”

The memorandum advised close monitoring of military and civilian branches of the government for threats citing both “vast espionage” and use of “violence.”

The KC 135

The aircraft, scheduled to be replaced by 2040, were placed into service beginning in 1957. Their transit range is over 11,000 miles but is only 1500 miles when loaded with 75 tons of “transfer fuel.”

Each aircraft would be capable of refueling at least one squadron of fighter/bomber aircraft, a capability that would make a potential attack on Iran a possibility without violation of airspace of Turkey, Iraq or Saudi Arabia.

Turkey, who has eight of these aircraft, uses the KC 135. France also uses this as their primary air-to-air refueling platform.

No other nations in the region have air-to-air refueling capabilities that could make a mission from Israel to Iran a possibility. There have been no reports that either Turkey or France are missing aircraft of this type or is there “chatter” that participation, as an “actor” in an attack on Iran is considered possible by either of these nations.

Additionally, there is no known or even rumored “classified” agreement for the US to lend such aircraft to Israel for such a purpose, quite the contrary. Such an act would, as indicated by “informed sources,” constitute mutiny and treason.

The F 15 series including the “strike eagle”

Israel’s most advanced aircraft is the US built F 15. There are several variants but the “twin cockpit” F 15E “Strike Eagle” has the greatest range and weapons capacity.

Israel currently operates 25 F 15E Strike Eagles and approximately 40 other variants. The Strike Eagle, when carrying three external fuel tanks, can carry up to 8000 pound of ordnance. The F 15E has advance countermeasures and is capable of carrying “bunker buster” bombs.

Potential mission

Were Israel to use a “sea route” to attack Iran, using its F 15 aircraft, two refueling would be necessary, even with full external tanks.

Each refueling requires three tons of fuel, 10 total for each aircraft.

A single KC 135 aircraft may well be capable of this mission. Two would be much better. Three would be needed if fighter cover were to be used to suppress air defenses, what is called “Wild Weasel Missions.”

Cover and deception

There has been considerable illusory and deceptive “chatter” that may well be part of a “deception and cover” program intended to disorient Iranian air defenses.

Over the past few months, several types of threats have been revealed which involve Azerbaijan. There have been reports that Israel had stationed attack aircraft at former Soviet airfields in Azerbaijan, aircraft that traveled through Turkey in transit to Azerbaijan during joint training missions while those nations were on publicly friendlier terms.

This mission and scenario, including transit of “bunker buster” bombs through Georgia, was reported in Veterans Today in 2010.

Turkey openly acknowledges that it had allowed Israel to run bombing practice inside Turkish air space because the terrain “matched that of Iran.”

Not long ago, two defecting officers of the Azeri military reported an agreement between Azerbaijan and Israel outlining the exact scenario reported by Veterans Today.

Meetings between the Iranian ambassador in Baku and the President of Azerbaijan drew a strong denial. However, it is also more than rumored that Israeli aircraft inside Azerbaijan had been “discovered” and required to return to Israel.

Last week, the London Times reported that Azerbaijan had agreed to allow Israel to use its bases to operate drones over Iran. The president of Azerbaijan both denied the charge and asked for a retraction from the Times.

However, only two days ago, there were further reports that, in fact, the drones were jointly operated by both Israel and Azerbaijan, and had been in place for some time.

There has yet to be a second denial to this new story that specifically outlines, not only the type of drone, but the vendors for the observation packages used as well, a prominent electronics supplier to the IDF.


In addition to the stories about Azerbaijan, there has been considerable “chatter” involving use of Saudi airspace. Recently, Saudi Arabia has been very involved in covert operations against Syria.

Today, it was discovered that Saudi Arabia had sent 200 prisoners sentenced to death to fight in Syria. Though this has not been fully confirmed, documents published today and intelligence from inside Syria supports this supposition.

The problem with a credible deception plan involving Saudi Arabia is that Iran could quickly, not only devastate Saudi Arabia but likely stage a full scale ground invasion that there would be no hope of resisting, even with American assistance.

Saudi Arabia has no credible military forces and any attack would quickly turn into, not only urban warfare but, even more likely, the immediate overthrow of the Saudi government by political groups not necessarily friendly to Iran but extremely hostile to the traditional despotic rule.

There is very little likelihood that American ground forces would be used to defend Saudi Arabia, a slave labor theocracy.

In the event of any threat to Saudi Arabia a popular uprising would begin and the kingdom would crumble in days.

In fact, other nations in the region would likely fall quickly, Bahrain, Kuwait, Jordan and possibly even the UAE.

Those who have chosen to plan and plot have failed to take into account both the changed political situation in the US and the ongoing reassessment of its role in the region.

Additionally, no effort has been taken, we clearly see, to take into account that the revolution that so many love to watch in Syria would be far more successful against the Persian Gulf States or Saudi Arabia.

Hidden in plain site

If there are unauthorized KC 135 aircraft within range for such a mission as outlined, satellite reconnaissance would require them to be “hidden in plain sight” on a base such as Diego Garcia.

Let us hope that if such an endeavor has been undertaken, the US military is able to take rapid and corrective measures to “mitigate” the threat to regional stability.

  1. Yes, General Patton.

    “Blood and Honor”. the blood of his soldiers and he got all the honor.
    A good general, but could not follow orders.
    I knew his son, who was also a general.

  2. The aspect of the story concerning ‘extremist Christians’ at the Air Force Academy is old news, about two years old.

    The ‘news’ concerning Azerbaijan and Israel is also quite old, and be sure that Russia is keeping an eye on any activity there. In fact, the story that should be covered is the recent Azerbaijani refusal to agree to Russian financial terms for the continuing lease of a main Russian radar installation on the area.

    • It’s older than two years. I heard an interview on a local radio station with a man who had a lawsuit going against the Academy and the USAF. He is a Jew who entered the Academy round 2001. He was immediately singled out for a concerted proselytizing campain from his peers and the staff who are all Dispensationalists. They were particulary agressive to Jews beause of the percieved Jew’s Dogma about Jesus.

      I believe he got a nice settlement from our tax dollars.

    Once upon a time there was this guy called Australia. Australia was a scrawny sort of fella but he was a tough little bugger for his size. He lived in a quiet street and generally tried to be a good bloke and help his neighbours out whenever he could. Some of them thought he was a bit shifty but they put up with it because he was the sort of bloke that if you ever needed anything he’d always give you a hand. Australia had a good mate called America who lived around the corner. America was a bit of a loud mouth, and a show off but Australia liked him because he knew that if they were ever down the pub together having a beer, which they did pretty often, and he got into a scrap he could always count on America to watch his back. America was 6’ 10” and built like a brick shithouse. America liked Australia because Australia had a really big shed and used to let him come over and work on his pick-up truck or his Harley Davidson whenever he wanted to. All in all they were pretty good mates.

    But America had two drug f*cked sons, called Israel and Jumpin’ Jim Jehosaphat who lived in a couple of caravans out in the backyard. Israel had a mongrel pitbull called IDF that the local meth dealer had given him, for doing him some kind of favour, but no-one ever really knew what that favour actually was. It was Israel’s dog, but Jumpin’ Jim and America always seemed to be the ones buying all the dogfood. IDF was a c*nt of a dog, he was always trying to bite the neighbours and picking fights with other dogs through the fence. One day he broke down the gate and chewed up an old lady walking past pretty badly. That was the last straw. All the neighbours got together, armed themselves with shovels and baseball bats and went over to America’s place and beat IDF to a pulp. Australia told America that if he didn’t put his sons in rehab and get them straightened out none of them were ever going to talk to him again.

    So he did. And they all lived happily ever after.

  4. There is awareness within communities of such international spy rings whose primary objective is “in fact” to infiltrate, penetrate, and fragment the United States Military. This includes perpetrator operations, methods, networks, and complete infrastructure. These perpetrators are commonly rouge elements and often in part offshore contracted operatives. Most often their operatives hide within organizations attempting to mask their networks abroad, and elements hidden within the United States. Their operational signatures are well known and understood, and such methods to contract patsies as an attempt to shadow themselves and their identities. Having said this, their objectives as stated there above, are clear, and evident, and well known to date. They create phony front ends as to falsely represent communities and likewise infiltrate, cyber stalk, collect information, and use foreign operatives as attempt to fragment and infiltrate US Military Services. I have no doubt, the President is aware of such operations and in near future will expose one such targeting US V’s for such objectives. And once again, prove his commitment to service members and peoples of the United States. I’m certain these actions will be swift, making certain these perpetrators are brought to justice prior to asserting disinformation. Such method would be advised and accommodated.

    • It’s probably safe to assume that they’ve infiltrated the military and governmental apparatus of other nations’ in the same way.

      • I’d say that’s the $13 trillion question.

        • I thought it was the $16 trillion (or is it really the $222 trillion, whatever…)

          Interesting we are talking about money here. There is that phrase “follow the money.”

          Anyone here ever play “Tropico 3?” (never played 4) Just from the demo alone, through trial and error, if one can maintain a strong economy, the Soviet Navy leaves you alone. They are not even on your radar. Gee, why would that be. Also, eventually the western sugar and fruit companies stop bothering you, after you have said a polite, “no” to their first proposal. Then, somehow, beginning as dictator, if one does the right and proper thing for their subjects/citizens, the people elect you as President. Wow! What a concept…

        • You can certainly put down the Australian government as infiltrated

          • Warlord Moneybags

            Here’s me going way off track again but I thought Mr Duff might be interested to know (if he doesn’t already) that Julian Assange is discussing the idea of starting a ‘Wikileaks’ political party in Australia.

  5. Gordon, is there a chance that there are plans to form “religious units” within the US military to create special unites that are ideologically (evangelical Christians) driven to serve in special operations similar to units being formed within the IDF?

  6. Mr. Duff:
    Due to religious & humanitarian prohibitions neither Iran nor any other muslin nation would launch such attacks (described above) against holy site cities in Saudi or stolen Palestinian territories.
    However for all these doomsday scenarios to be prevented as I recently wrote in VT pages the best short-cut out of world misery is for Syria’s Assad to launch an all-out air-raid on Tel Aviv before Assad faces Gadhafi’s fate in a few days when the Zio-Satanist mercenary terrorist forces invade his palace & murder him on camera as they did with Gadafi.

    • Just a couple of weeks ago I think it was the Syrian Foriegn Minister said they have Israel’s nuclear weapons silos targeted. Israel is sitting on a nuclear time bomb of its own making.

      • Rah, I searched your terms here at VT: “the cheap way to detonate a nuclear bomb” and couldn’t find the article. Anyway missile silos are generally hardened against any conventional weapons package Iran could deliver on a missile of their own design.

        Second even it they have some sort of “Bunker Buster” ordinance that could penetrate, it would not cause the detonation of a warhead. The only way a modern warhead will detonate is if the detonation sequence is followed precisely. The most that would happen is an extremely dirty bomb would contaminate an area downwind of the silo with plutonium for about 4 billion years. Iraq and Iran are both downwind from the prevailing winds.

        • Gerry

          How can you doubt the knowledge of our Expert Consultant on Geopolitics and Intelligence and Military Analyst???

          First of all, that is a mouthfull, I wonder who gave him this title?
          Military analyst? He is a young dudd, probably never ever been near a military installation, now he is the VT chef military analyst. I though VT had a long list of workers from different military and naval intelligence services?

          Intelligence consultant? How many years did he serve in any intelligence outfit, how many in the field? Or did he read a few books and in 30 days he became an expert to give advise?
          The usual OJT training?

          I took the trouble to compare about 15 of his long comments. They have the same value as the one above, he doesn´t know what he is talking about, he repeats empty long phrases.
          I showed them to a friend at DISA, anyone in military or intelligence should know what DISA is, his comment was it is a bunch of garbage, (his words, not mine!!).

          He starts every second sentence with Ad Hominem, regardless if it passes to the text or not.
          Ad Hoc I think this guy just doesn´t know what he is talking about.
          Over the years we had bright college students who wanted to be agents and within six months 80% were told to find another place to work, the other 20% were made into human beings within a year or so.. Not a degree is important, but the intelligence to adjust, to be able to think fast and never underestimate the opponent. NEVER!!!
          I can say this guy would not last two weeks.

          He gets his information from PressTV. Crying out loud, it is an iranian government owned station, they twist every story as ours do. To peddle such information as an expert advice on nuclear bombs? I watch them, then another 10 different foreign TV stations, and try to get to the bottom of a story. I never trust a single one of them, but together they will get you near the truth, if you have long years of experience. What the VT expert certainly does not have!!

        Before Assad gets the Khaddafy treatment he needs to undermine the Wahabi bastards legitimacy by attacking Talmudia…”you want to fight jet-set Jihadi Wahabis? Then help us fight Talmudia!”

      • The problem is that Israel does not store it’s nuclear arsenal of 800 nuclear missiles. Most likely they are stored in Israel owned office space of buildings throughout the US and Europe. This is what makes the Sampson option so feesible. This along with the Stuxnet virus which is capable of creating nuclear meltdowns like Fukushima in ever Nuclear Power Plants througout the US and Europe. Because all safety systems are from Sieimens that it was desighned for. Like Germany did we need to close all Nuclear Power plants and redesign all the security to non Siemens systems. But because the zionists who really do want to take us down so they have no resistance from the most powerful resistance to World government a Nationalistic USA no one is even suggesting this. Even the planned conference discussing the Stuxnet virus was cancelled and Mcaffee who discovered it had to flee the country and is being demonized as a pedophile.

  7. If the story is true and no ‘corrective action” is taken, then the US Military is either rogue, acting outside the constraints of government and Constitution, or the US Military is unable to act appropiately because Zionists inflitrators, who control the President, have prevented it.

    • This is departing comment,

      It’s for you Gordon,
      You remember the corrupt group spoke about during the last administration, wrote about this group for some time. One of the worse executives among this group, about a year ago relocated to VA, a promotion of course by the ones “now” surrounding you. Quote by FBI some years ago regarding this one, “We know this guy is threatening allot of people, were will aware his activities.” How about a quote from the above S.C. executive abroad, “Were going to hang you just like we hung people in the past, it’s all in how you tie the knot”. I can guarantee your dislike for this one, but Gordon, corruption does pay. I wonder who’s job is to eliminate the whistle blowers, the ones who tried so diligently to stop this activity, “same as usual their eliminated”. These corrupt executives are so clever; they simply use other people to do their dirty works and thereafter are promoted and awarded “titles and land”. Do you think he’s a veteran, or any members in his family veterans? No, and he’s about your age. You need “veterans to eliminate other veterans”, and such clever method used historically. You lost before you begun, congratulations you’re being surrounded. They need not do anything, because you will do the work for them.

      So let us “whisper” for one moment.

      Maybe an echo from the past sounds like this, “You’re either with us or against us”. Such an idea is created as to form several buckets or groups more specifically, where peoples are categorically placed in one or the other, because diverse thinking is no longer acceptable. And such a concept does not account for countries and or nations that share diverse ideas and cultures. Now, many truly do not understand underlining aspects of such ideology and the methods employed, one being, to “Fragment the Base” as an attempt to eliminate diverse and create thinking, so observe this closely. Furthermore, such method is implemented as to form programmatic behavior and or responses, where peoples “think less” and more so “react to objectivity” because their trained to do so. Their behavior is being programmed, so the resulting response is easily predictable. Now above all this, are the “Masters of Deception”, who have pasties countries and hubs all across this globe, and yes, they are the controllers of this program.

      Such an idea is somewhat like a complex software program, where the developer of this program understands the “output” before any “input” is entered. Because the developer created this complex program, so the “user thinks less” about “output versus the input”, and merely reacts questioning nothing. Creativity is now limited to several buckets or groups as stated earlier and above. Now often these programs are large and contain subroutines located within there complex structures, “already programmatic”. The source code was already written, well known, and completely predictable. Now, these “Master Developers” know what they created, and likewise responding output prior to any data input. So one might believe their accomplishing some objective, but actually their simply being used because their programmed “output is predictable”.

      Do you know how to determine the difference between a “Program”, and “Person?” It’s when regardless of what you say, the though, or creative thinking used to stimulate some response, the resulting output is always “predictable”. And known as programmatic behavior.

      Many are not aware, they were, or are now presently being programmed. And this nothing more then simple strategy used to fragment the base.

      • Patsies are commonly used because of their programmatic predictability, war is prevented through unity and common beliefs, where as patsies are strategic tools and whether for or against subject matter, is completely “insignificant”. Only the “programmatic response is significant” and the tool used above by the “masters of deception”. You should know this, it’s very simple. Today wars are not the result of unity, but the result of fragmenting the base, where less people translates into more control and deception by those pursuing such ideas.

        • Does anyone need lesson on how an echo chamber works, or the news passed about two stories ago? The one stating I believe, about 350,000 veterans being on cyber stalking list? Whose cyber stalking list, one might ask?
