The people who run Israel are all about exploiting chaos, and any talk about deescalation or peace is like holding a cross in front of a vampire.

American accepted having a base obliterated and 100 wounded and many killed, sources confirm, because the Soleimani killing had nothing to do with national security and everything to do with Trump’s private dealing with the Kosher Nostra.

The US lied about 100 brain injured troops, it is lying about the dead, maybe more than a dozen and now it is shown that it has all been a lie, so blatant that even the New York Times is exposing it.

General Soleimani was in Iraq, we all knew, to receive a “note.” What we didn’t know is that the note was a peace proposal for the Persian Gulf, a treaty negotiated between Iran, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, one that Israel didn’t like and now Americans are dead for taking part in a mob hit ordered by Israeli  gangsters and carried out by misled and misused American military who paid a very heavy price in retaliation.

[ Editor’s NoteIt was a surprise to see the NY Times put its stamp on this open secret. The disclosure of Israel’s involvement in wanting to break up any momentum to defuse tensions in the Persian Gulf by negotiations, even providing the key intel of Soleimani’s team flying to Baghdad, was a bonus.

The people who run Israel are all about exploiting chaos, and any talk about deescalation or peace is like holding a cross in front of a vampire. Trump and Netanyahu are 100% aligned with preventing deescalation, as that undermines their aggressive intentions in the region. Iran is the bogeyman they use to exploit tensions.

The only fixing they want to do in the Mideast is to have complete control over it. Imagine that. And they will pay for doing it with our money and our blood, or at least the blood of our professional army that already is gaining a taint of a mercenary one in Syria, and now Iraq, by acting as occupiers and asset strippers.

Getting the vet orgs to speak out against this appears to be an impossible task. We may have to consider creating a new oath to “defend the Deep State and to subjugate the world to our fullest extent possible,” for our professional military.

That Trump can openly state that “we are staying in Syria to get the oil, I love oil”, and we do not even a whimper from the American heritage and military orgs, is a sign that civic leadership is in some kind of a trance.

When their country really needs them to push back on this runaway unipolar train, they are sitting on the sidelines like it is none of their business, yet at patriotic events it is all “duty, honor, and love of country”.

People like former Sec. of State Colin Powell’s chief of staff, Larry Wilkerson, are few and far between, despite his leading by example and proving that it can be done. He’s fighting the good fight, and making the army officer corps look like they are ducking getting involved in controversy. It’s one hell of a sad thing to see … Jim W. Dean ]

From the NY Times: 

“The decision by President Trump to authorize the killing of Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, Iran’s most powerful military commander, might ultimately deter future Iranian aggression. Yet a recent C.I.A. analysis concluded that Iran, while struggling to continue funding its military activities under American sanctions, appears no closer to entering direct talks over its nuclear program, according to American officials familiar with the assessment.

Israeli intelligence officials have also determined that the escalating tensions have made Iran only more determined to gain a nuclear weapon, and to take concrete steps toward amassing enough nuclear fuel to build one.”

Washington ordered the assassination of top Iranian General Qassem Soleimani to sabotage de-escalation talks between Iran, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates following a report by Israel’s Mossad spy agency, according to the New York Times.

The paper reported on Thursday that General Soleimani had been arranging talks in Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates in order to de-escalate tensions with Tehran.

The Times wrote that the talks happened after Saudi Arabia and the UAE, which are central to the Trump administration’s so-called regional alliance seeking to pressure Iran, began to question the efficiency of Washington’s anti-Iran campaign.

According to the report, one such meeting took place last September in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates where a plane carrying “senior Iranian officials” landed for talks.

News of the meeting, which reached Washington only after it was notified by reports from American spy agencies, “set off alarms inside the White House”, according to the report. The report added that a similar mediation attempt, also arranged by Gen. Soleimani, was underway between Tehran and Riyadh using Iraqi and Pakistani intermediaries.

The report wrote that the developments had greatly concerned Israel, which had been trying to push the Trump administration to exert more pressure on Tehran.

According to the Times, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met Mossad chief Yossi Cohen on October during a trip to Israel where he was briefed on Iran’s attempted de-escalation talks with Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Cohen warned Pompeo that Tehran was effectively on the verge of achieving its “primary goal” of breaking up the so-called “anti-Iran” alliance. A few months later in early January, General Soleimani was assassinated by Washington’s order while on a formal visit to Baghdad.

According to former Iraqi prime minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi, General Soleimani was due to formally meet the Iraqi premier during the trip and was carrying Tehran’s response to a message from Riyadh regarding the de-escalation talks.

Following the attack, the Trump Administration claimed that the assassination had taken place after a reported rocket attack on a US base in Iraq killed a “US civilian contractor” and that Gen. Soleimani was an “imminent threat” to US citizens.

Many US political figures have rejected the claims and have questioned why the Trump administration has failed to provide any evidence backing its actions.

The New York Times’ Thursday report, however, reveals that entirely different considerations, such as Israel’s push to undermine Iran’s attempts at peace with its regional neighbors, were behind the assassination.

‘Months of miscalculations’

According to the report, the assassination marks yet another miscalculation by the Trump administration which has failed to bend Iran through its “maximum pressure” campaign.

Following its unilateral withdrawal from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal in 2018, the US imposed unilateral sanctions against Tehran in a bid to goad Tehran to accept new terms dictated by Washington.

The Times, however, reported that a recent analysis conducted by the Central Intelligence Agency  (CIA) shows that the sanctions have had little effect in fulfilling Washington’s goals.

The US has also sought to pressure Iran militarily by deploying troops to the region and creating a regional anti-Iran alliance in the region as part of if its anti-Iran campaign.

Washington called for the formation of a naval coalition in the region following a string of suspicious attacks on oil tankers in the Persian Gulf. Iran has vehemently denied the accusations, saying the incidents appear to be false flag operations meant to frame the Islamic Republic and push US interests.

Citing instances such as the major Yemeni attack on Saudi oil facilities last September and Iran’s downing of a US Global Hawk spy craft in June, the New York Times report said stepped-up US military presence also failed to achieve its objectives.

Witnessing the Trump administration’s faltering policy in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia and the UAE were convinced to open direct talks with Tehran, the report noted.

  1. When involved in a skirmish, shooting the messenger is knowingly killing your own soldiers. It is a direct knowing action that comes with near guaranteed retribution. This is why it is not done. The rank and status of the messenger normally would not matter, but in this case it is insult upon insult added to injury. Even some of the most vicious conquerers in history allowed safe passage for messengers with diplomatic packages. Really, the only ones who kill messengers are either ruthlessly arrogant, or complete idiots. And while Israel is always in these messes, it is not prudent to minimize Britains global advancements and movements during the events, and their relentless protections of the triumvirate. This action told KSA, to stay in the fold. britain would be screaming if the crown was against it. Instead they are celebrating, moving afield and signing contracts.

  2. For the benefit of the new readers here and the uninitiated I will say this and VT has been saying this for a very long time in many articles that Israel is by far the biggest shite stirrer in the while world but it uses the US as its guard dog to attack in their behalf because most of their armed forces groups are weak, un motivated, low moral under trained conscripts who are forced to do a stint in the IDF. Basically Israel is not strong enough militarily to take on Iran alone. It would be destroyed very quickly. That’s why it has infiltrated the government of the US , UK , Australia and others, used it’s rich Zionist oligarchs and the power and influence of the massive corporations they own, the banking cartel they run globally to play it against Iran and any other country that does not play along or seeks to circumvent the Zionist run agenda and control. This article is yet more proof of this agenda of Israel’s wet dream of destroying Iran. They push countries into adopting anti semitism laws and punish BDS followers yet they seek to destroy us with the power they yield. Blackmail politicians and business leaders, assasinate leaders, steal people’s passports and identities and try to get into countries to spy or do covert ops. The list goes on and on. And yet our leaders just sit there like deer blinded by headlights and do nothing because of the fear that the zionist owned banking cartel will bankrupt their country and themselves. Simples.

  3. The only Presidential Candidate that condemned Trump’s actions directly, that is not whimper about how he should have informed congress before whacking Soleimani, has been Mark Charles.

    As far as I’m concerned the Republicans and Democrats are pathetic bunch of amoral, immoral, pathetic bunch of traitorous scoundrels who have been bribed by Israel because our exceptional as in retarded Supreme Court has decreed that bribery is “free speech” and should move to Israel where they can better serve their constituents.

    The “impeachment” was a joke because allegedly Trumpenstein’s “crime” was he didn’t give his full support to the Ukonazis to endlessly bomb civilians in Dombass. What a bunch of assholes. Not that he was any paragon of virtue since he wanted dirt on Biden. Yet the fact is that there was plenty of dirt to find not just in Ukraine but here in America as well. Where his scion Hunter ripped off Native Americans as well.

    Thieves, liars, murderers and hypocrites exist on both sides of the isle. Again a pathetic bunch of sociopathic losers.

  4. Mossad: “By Deception We Shall Make War” is calling the shots for USA Foreign Policy. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the USA has a “Kol Nidre” Foreign Policy. You just cant trust The Bastards. “Sepos”, Septic Tanks, Yanks – Full of Shit. We don’t care what the Yankees say, The South Will Rise Again.

    My father, Kenneth Victor Paul New Zealand Army 44888 (1941 to 1945), went from Private Soldier to Warrant Officer First Class between February 1941 and August 1942 with 8 Brigade Group on Fiji. He ended the war as Acting Captain and First Lieutenant in Ordinance for the 3rd NZEF in New Caladonia for the 3rd NZEF Operations into the Northern Solomon Islands.

    He said that in the army, if someone told lies, then orders could be issued that cost soldiers’ lives. Lying was a Big No No in this house that I grew up in and I passed that on to my children. My father used to belt my arse if I told lies and I avoided that by becoming Frank and Fearless, what Ernest Victor Paul my grandfather and Senior Public Srevant practised with the Coalition Government Committees that ran the war effort here in NZ/Aotearoa. Unfortunately the Public Sewrvice have slipped a letter and become Garrulous and Gutless and this seems to be a World Wide Trend. That and a Dumbed Down Education away from Logos into Talmudic Pilpulism.

    • So Kissinger was following the Rationale of Real Politik when he said that “Soldiers are Dumb Animals” (Goyim), because those soldiers are taught to tell The Truth. Pompeo slipped up recently when he was reported as saying that the West Point Oath of Integrity was no longer relevant as he has joined THEM. Well The Tribe of Dan, the muscle that worked for the Real Liars and Murderers has been Prophesied to be the Adder that waits at the side of the road to bring the Four Horse Men down from their Apocolyptic Occupations : The Prince of Lies, War, Famine and Death. Soldiers like Smedley Butler, the most decorated soldier of the USMC (Semper Fidei) is a Fore Runner of things to come and those Dumb Animals won’t just be Blowing The Whistle.
