Title: Iranian Tensions Escalate

As much as I despise what the J.O.G. of the U.S. has done to manipulate our military, I would like to see them blow up some of those middle eastern mud races. Instead of the White on White killing they prefer us to be in. But in all honesty, I'd truthfully would prefer the military to be used on our southern border where the invasion is.

Iranian cleric threatens U.S. Navy fleet amid warning regime could target commercial ships

By Sam Dorman | Fox News

Michael Singh says Iran and North Korean are trying to increase leverage against the US

It will take patience and deft diplomacy by the Trump administration to resist Iranian and North Korean efforts to put pressure on the U.S., says Michael Singh, former senior director for Middle East affairs at the National Security Council.

Tensions escalated in the Middle East on Friday as Iran warned it could easily destroy a naval fleet sent by the United States in order to ward off a potential threat to American commercial interests.

"Their billion[-dollar] fleet can be destroyed with one missile," Ayatollah Tabatabai-Nejad said, according to Reuters.

"If they attempt any move, they will ... [face] dozens of missiles because at that time [government] officials won't be in charge to act cautiously, but instead things will be in the hands of our beloved leader," Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, he warned.

The heated rhetoric has capped a multiyear standoff over the rogue nation's nuclear program. President Trump's administration angered the regime when he withdrew from an Obama-era nuclear deal granting Iran sanctions relief in exchange for limited monitoring accommodations.

PENTAGON SAYS IT'LL SEND SHIP, MISSILE BATTERY TO MIDDLE EAST TO DETER IRAN

The regime relaxed constraints on its nuclear program in reaction to sanctions the administration applied in May as part of its plan to put a chokehold on the nation's crude oil exports. U.S. intelligence indicated that Iran considered military action and could close a waterway through which a hefty amount of the world's oil passes.

“Iran or its proxies could respond by targeting commercial vessels, including oil tankers, or U.S. military vessels in the Red Sea, Bab-el-Mandeb Strait, or the Persian Gulf,” the U.S. Maritime Administration (MARAD) said on Friday.

While the president has warned of a potential U.S. military response, he also urged Iranian leaders on Thursday to talk with him about their nuclear program. "What they should be doing is calling me up, sitting down; we can make a deal, a fair deal. ... We're not looking to hurt Iran," Trump reportedly told the press.

In a statement on Thursday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also pushed talks between leaders but warned that the U.S. was ready to take "swift and decisive" action.

"The regime in Tehran should understand that any attacks by them or their proxies of any identity against U.S. interests or citizens will be answered with a swift and decisive U.S. response," he said.

Military action appeared more likely after Iran's Revolutionary Guard refused to hold talks with the U.S.

“No talks will be held with the Americans, and the Americans will not dare take military action against us," Yadollah Javani, the group's deputy head for political affairs, said.

The JOG controls who becomes President and who doesn't. It matters little if Trump really does attack Iran or not. If he does, he simply continues the "Greater Israel" project that Bush Sr. started and serves his JOG masters well. If he doesn't, the scare itself will send the messages JOG wants to the people in the Middle East and here in America. It matters little what the American people "vote" for these days. As I've said a number of times, there is not one single American politician whose interests are for the White Race, and if there is, he or she is being sacked and their image tarnished. Not until there is a White candidate who supports CREATIVITY will we be able to ensure no more wars for Israel. RAHOWA!

First off, this is all sh!t talking from Iran. There is no way they could take on the U.S., no matter what allies they could get to help. All this saber rattling and negotiations with these low IQ mud races (with a religion that has indoctrinated them to hate/kill the infidels since birth) is useless. Just nuke them already, along with the rest of the muds of the middle east. That will be the only way to fix that area of the world.

Hezbollah's chief says a US strike against Iran will spur regional conflict, leading American forces to be 'annihilated'

By Ghazi Balkiz, Hamdi Alkhshali and Chelsea J. Carter, CNN
Updated at 7:12 AM ET, Sat June 1, 2019

Beirut (CNN) — Hezbollah's leader warned the United States against striking Iran, saying if it does "the entire region will burn."

US President Donald Trump "knows that when the region is on fire, a barrel of oil will be $200 or $300," Hassan Nasrallah, the head of the Iran-backed Lebanese militant group, said Friday during a televised speech.

"The US knows well that any war on Iran will not remain confined to Iran's borders. The entire region will burn, leading to all US forces and interests in the region to be annihilated."

Nasrallah's comments came the same day Saudi Arabia called an emergency meeting of the Arab League, the Gulf Cooperation Council and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to counter what it says is Iran's growing influence in the region.

Tensions between the Washington and Tehran have steadily escalated since the US withdrew from a nuclear deal with Iran and slapped it with new sanctions. But the war of words hit critical mass this month when US National Security adviser John Bolton blamed Iran for the attack on four oil tankers at a port in the UAE.

Related Article: Saudi Arabia united the Arab world against Iran. That means conflict could be one step closer

The US, Israel "and others from the Gulf are inciting war against Iran," Nasrallah said. But even so, he said, a US-led war against Iran was highly unlikely because of what it would mean for all parties.

The United States, the European Union, Israel and the Arab League have listed Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.

Nasrallah also slammed Trump's Israeli-Palestinian peace plan -- dubbed "the deal of the century."

While few details about the so-called deal have been released, comments by Trump and Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and one of the chief architects of the plan, appear to be moving away from a two-state peace plan.

"We have strong hope as people in the region that we can prevent the crime deal of the century,'' he said during the address to commemorate Al Quds Day.

The deal "is unjust," he said, "and we must oppose it."

Every year, on the last Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, Iran marks Al Quds Day as a time to express support for Palestinians. Iran does not recognize Israel's right to exist.

US to send 1,000 additional troops to the Middle East as tensions escalate with Iran

By Luis Martinez,Elizabeth McLaughlinJun 17, 2019, 6:36 PM ET.

The United States is sending 1,000 additional troops to the Middle East, amid rising tensions between the U.S. and Iran. The decision follows last week's attack on two tankers in the Gulf of Oman that the U.S. blamed on Tehran, with the Pentagon releasing new images on Monday that officials said show Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) members removing an unexploded mine from one of the ship's hulls.

"In response to a request from the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) for additional forces, and with the advice of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and in consultation with the White House, I have authorized approximately 1,000 additional troops for defensive purposes to address air, naval, and ground-based threats in the Middle East," acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said in a statement on Monday.

The additional personnel are mostly part of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance and force protection units, a U.S. official told ABC News.

Airmen conduct flight control checks during preflight of a Reaper drone launch at an undisclosed location in Southwest Asia, Feb. 21, 2019.

The U.S. has already accelerated the deployment to the Middle East of the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier strike group and sent B-52 bombers after what it said were credible threats by Iran against U.S. forces andinterests in the region. Since then, the U.S. has sent an additional 1,500 troops and increased defensive capabilities to continue to help deter Iran.

"The recent Iranian attacks validate the reliable, credible intelligence we have received on hostile behavior by Iranian forces and their proxy groups that threaten United States personnel and interests across the region," Shanahan said.

"The United States does not seek conflict with Iran," the statement continued. "The action today is being taken to ensure the safety and welfare of our military personnel working throughout the region and to protect our national interests. We will continue to monitor the situation diligently and make adjustments to force levels as necessary given intelligence reporting and credible threats."

Iran attempted to shoot down a U.S. drone that was surveilling the attack on one of two tankers hit in the Gulf of Oman last week, CENTCOM said. The attempt missed the MQ-9 Reaper by "approximately one kilometer."

Under Constitutional Law, it's illegal to have dual citizenship and be elected to Australian Federal Parliament. In fact, the laws goes so far as to say that you are not allowed to even have the ability to apply for foreign citizenship to stand in a Federal Election. So, to be allowed to sit in Federal Parliament in Australia, you need to legally dispense with all connections to foreign nations. If you don't, you are treated as beholden to a foreign nation - whether you were born in Australia or am a Naturalised Australian with Australian Citizenship Papers, it doesn't matter - you are a foreign national. To take it even further, if the JOG don't like you, because of your foreign citizenship/potential foreign citizenship, they can deport you; it's that simple.

All well and good you may think ... However, one shitty little country's Kosher crowd are deliberately overlooked with their Right of Return policy and extended legal stance that all Jews are considered to be Israeli Citizens. And yet, there is no legal waiver to the Constitutional Law in Australia that singles out Jews or Israel in any way at all. It is simply unwritten JEWISH PRIVILEGE.

If you question it, you are denounced as an ANTI-SEMITE.

Try asking Australia's Deputy Prime Minister, Josh Fryenberg about it, and he'll probably arrange to have you arrested and then assassinated in prison as you would expect from the citizenry of the Bandit State of Israel.

Iran Shoots Down U.S. ‘Spy’ Drone

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard claims the drone was flying over southern Iran. A U.S. official said it was shot down in international airspace.

Parisa Hafezi and Phil Stewart
06/20/2019

DUBAI/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Iran on Thursday shot down a U.S. military drone that it said was flying over one of its southern provinces on the Gulf, increasing fears of military conflict as Washington seeks to isolate Tehran over its nuclear and regional activities.

It was the latest in an escalating spate of incidents in the Gulf region, a critical artery for global oil supplies, since mid-May including explosive strikes on six oil tankers as Tehran and Washington have slid toward confrontation.

Iran has denied involvement in any of the attacks, but global jitters about the risk of a wider Middle East war disrupting oil exports have triggered a jump in crude prices. They surged by more than $3 to above $63 a barrel on Thursday.

Tensions flared with the U.S. pullout last year from world powers’ 2015 nuclear accord with Iranand have worsened as Washington imposed fresh sanctions to throttle Tehran’s vital oil trade and Iran retaliated earlier this week with a threat to breach limits on its nuclear activities imposed by the deal.

Upping the ante, Washington said on Monday it would deploy about 1,000 more troops, along with Patriot missiles and manned and unmanned surveillance aircraft, to the Middle East on top of a 1,500-troop increase announced after the May tanker attacks.

Sepah News, the website of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), said the “spy” dronewas brought down over the southern Iranian province of Hormozgan, which is on the Gulf.

A U.S. official said the drone was a U.S. Navy MQ-4C Triton and that it had been shot down in international air space over the Strait of Hormuz, through which about a third of the world’s seaborne oil exits the Gulf..

A Revolutionary Guards statement said the drone’s identification transponder had been switched off “in violation of aviation rules and was moving in full secrecy” when it was downed, Iranian state broadcaster IRIB reported.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry condemned what it called a violation of Iranian air space by thedrone and warned of the consequences of such “illegal and provocative” measures.

The MQ-4C Triton’s manufacturer, Northrop Grumman, says on its website that the Triton can fly for over 24 hours at a time at altitudes higher than 10 miles, with an operational range of 8,200 nautical miles.   (Handout . / Reuters)

“CLEAR MESSAGE” TO U.S., IRAN SAYS

Brigadier General Hossein Salami, commander in chief of the Revolutionary Guards, warned against any aggression and said the drone’s downing carried a “clear message” to Iran’s arch-enemy.

“Our air space is our red line and Iran has always responded and will continue to respond strongly to any country that violates our air space,” Ali Shamkhani, secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, told Iran’s Tasnim news agency.

The MQ-4C Triton’s manufacturer, Northrop Grumman, says on its website that the Triton can fly for over 24 hours at a time at altitudes higher than 10 miles (16 km), with an operational range of 8,200 nautical miles.

The U.S. sanctions net draped over Iran, designed to reduce its lifeblood oil exports to zero and sever it from the dollar-dominated global financial system, have wrought severe damage to Iran’s economy.

U.S. President Donald Trump has dispatched forces including aircraft carriers, B-52 bombers and troops to the Middle East over the past few weeks. Iran said last week that it was responsible for the security of the Strait of Hormuz, calling on American forces to leave the Gulf.

Tehran has also said it will suspend compliance with the nuclear deal’s curbs on its uranium enrichment, meant to block any pathway to nuclear weapons capability, and threatened to disrupt oil shipments through the Strait of Hormuz.

Iran’s clerical rulers have rejected as “warmongering” allegations by the United States and its regional ally Saudi Arabia that Tehran was behind the tanker attacks.

But Trump and Iran’s top authority, Shi’ite clerical Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, have both said they have no interest in starting a war.

Heightened tension between Iran and the United States have fanned fears of increasing conflict in countries where Iran and its Gulf Arab regional rivals have been locked in proxy battles for predominance in the Middle East.

Trump says the 2015 nuclear accord signed by his predecessor Barack Obama did not do enough to curb Iranian interventions in other Middle East affairs or curb its ballistic missile program.

The Islamic Republic says its development of ballistic missiles and its regional activities are defensive in nature.

Tehran said on Monday it would breach uranium enrichment limits in 10 days, but added that European signatories still had time to save the nuclear deal.

Iran has rejected Trump’s call to enter talks covering nuclear, missile and other security disputes unless Washington returns to the 2015 deal that lifted global sanctions on Tehran.

Saudi Arabia has also accused Iran of supplying Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi movement with missiles and drones used in attacks on Saudi oil pumping stations in May and on a civilian Saudi airport earlier this month.

On Thursday, the Saudi-led coalition battling the Houthis in Yemen said a projectile landed near a desalination plant in the Saudi province of Jizan, after Houthi-run Masirah TV said the group had fired a missile at a power plant there.

Britain sends second warship to Gulf after Iran tanker standoff

a large ship in a body of water: Sources said HMS Duncan's deployment was being moved forward by a number of days

Sources said HMS Duncan's deployment was being moved forward by a number of days

Britain said Friday it was sending a second warship to the Gulf and raising the alert level in the oil-rich region as tensions spike after Iranian gunboats threatened a UK supertanker.

The decision was disclosed as US President Donald Trump stepped up his war of words with the Islamic republic, which breached part of a nuclear accord already rejected by Washington.

"Iran better be careful," Trump told reporters outside the White House.

"They're treading on very dangerous territory. Iran, if you're listening, you better be careful."

British officials said the naval deployment was part of a pre-planned rotation and meant to ensure a continued British naval presence in one of the most important but volatile oil shipment routes in the world.

But a source said the switchover was brought forward by several days and should see two of Britain's most advanced warships jointly navigating the waters off Iran for a period that might last a number of weeks.

A government spokesman said the HMS Duncan was "deploying to the region to ensure we maintain a continuous maritime security presence while HMS Montrose comes off task for pre-planned maintenance and crew changeover".

On Wednesday, HMS Montrose warned off three fast Iranian gunboats that UK officials said were trying to "impede" the progress of a British supertanker through the Strait of Hormuz in the Gulf.

Iranian officials have denied the incident ever happened.

The British government decided at the start of the week to raise the alert level for ships travelling through Iranian waters to three on a three-point scale, indicating a "critical" threat.

HMS Duncan is an air defence destroyer that carries a set of heavy Harpoon anti-ship missiles and has a company and crew in excess of 280

Gulf tensions rise as US shoots down Iranian drone

Tensions in the Gulf region mounted Thursday as US President Donald Trump said an American naval vessel shot down an Iranian drone that threatened the ship as it was entering the Strait of Hormuz.

It was the first US military engagement with Iran following a series of increasingly serious incidents.

Trump announced that the USS Boxer, an amphibious assault ship, "took defensive action" against the Iranian drone as it was "threatening the safety of the ship and the ship's crew."

The drone was "immediately destroyed," Trump said, after it approached within 1,000 yards (914 meters) of the Boxer, Trump said.

"This is the latest of many provocative and hostile actions by Iran, against vessels operating in international waters," he said.

"The United States reserves the right to defend our personnel, our facilities and interests and calls upon all nations to condemn Iran's attempts to disrupt freedom of navigation and global commerce."

Tehran's top diplomat, Mohammad Javad Zarif, told reporters he had "no information about losing a drone today," as he arrived at the United Nations headquarters for a meeting with Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

The apparent confrontation came as Iran defended its detention Sunday of a "foreign tanker" believed to be the Panamanian-flagged vessel Riah and its 12 crew for allegedly smuggling fuel.

"The vessel was en route to deliver contraband fuel received from Iranian boats to foreign ships in farther regions when it was intercepted," Revolutionary Guards' Sepahnews website said.

President Donald Trump said Friday that the Islamic Republicn of Iran has endangered itself by seizing a pair of British oil tankers in the Persian Gulf. The president gloated that Iran's belligerence is a sign he was right to distrust Tehran's mullahs in the way his predecessor did, regarding Iran's nuclear ambitions.

'This only goes to show what I'm saying about Iran. Trouble, nothing but trouble,' he said. 'And remember this, the agreement, the ridiculous agreement made by President Obama, expires in a very short period of time.

'It was a short term agreement. When you're dealing in countries, you have to deal in 50 years and 100 years
.'

The president's statement came as tensions in the region increase dramatically.

The first vessel, the Stena Impero, was surrounded by heavily-armed Iranian vessels and a helicopter around 4pm and ordered to turn north.

The second vessel, the Mesdar, was ordered by Iran to turn north around 45 minutes later.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7319589/America-wants-Australia-confront-Iran-provide-security-ships-Strait-Hormuz.html

Australia is carefully weighing up a request from the United States to help confront Iran by providing security to trading ships passing through the Strait of Hormuz.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has asked Australia to join America in providing security in the world's most important waterway for oil shipments.

Mr Pompeo and newly appointed US Defense Secretary Mark Esper met with Australia's Foreign Minister Marise Payne and Defence Minister Linda Reynolds in Sydney on Sunday.

'We hope Australia will partner with us on some of the most pressing foreign policy challenges of our time, like efforts to stabilise Syria and keep Afghanistan free of terror, and confront the Islamic Republic of Iran's unprovoked attacks on international shipping in the Strait of Hormuz,' Mr Pompeo told reporters

Senator Reynolds said the government's decision would be based on Australia's sovereign interests.

'We are deeply concerned by the heightened tensions in the region, and we are strongly condemning the attacks on shipping in the Gulf of Oman,' she said

'The request that the United States has made is a very serious one and a complex one. That's why we are currently giving this request very serious consideration.

'No decision has been made.'

Iranian commandos seized a British-flagged tanker near the Strait of Hormuz amid increasing tensions with the US and its allies

Senator Reynolds said the two countries had shared concerns about the threat to freedom of navigation and maritime trade in the Middle East.

Mr Pompeo later told a forum at the State Library of NSW the US had asked 'every nation to join' and contribute something different.

'This is a deterrent against the bad behaviour of Iran,' the secretary of state said.

'We're asking every nation that has energy needs, that has goods and services passing through, to contribute to our effort.'

Mr Pompeo also moved to reassure Australia the United States intended to continue strong engagement in the Asia-Pacific region.

'The United States is a Pacific nation. We care deeply about what happens here and we are here to stay,' he said.

'I want Australians to know, they can always rely on the United States of America.

Iran promises 'harsh vengeance' after US assassination of Qasem Soleimani in Iraq

4 hours ago
Sae Strang


Iran's leaders are promising "revenge" and "harsh vengeance" over the US killing of Major General Qassem Soleimani in Iraq.

Soleimani, head of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps' (IRGC) elite Quds Force, was assassinated in a strike on Baghdad International Airport on Thursday (local time), along with militia leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has since described Soleimani as "the international face of resistance" and his death is being commemorated with three days of public mourning in the nation.

The Pentagon confirmed its responsibility for the attack, saying president Donald Trump directed it himself.

"Harsh vengeance awaits the criminals that got [Soleimani's] and other martyrs' blood on their evil hands in [the attack]," Khamenei said, according to the BBC.

Iranian president Hassan Rouhani reportedly added: "Without a doubt, the great Iranian nation and other free nations in the region will take revenge on criminal America for this ghastly crime."

On Twitter, a Farsi phrase meaning "harsh vengeance" is trending in Iran, and at the time of publishing, 'Iran', 'World War 3' and '#WWIII' are the top three trends globally on the social media platform.

Hessameddin Ashena, an adviser to Rouhani, was also quick to warn of retaliation.

"Trump, through his gamble, has dragged the US into the most dangerous situation in the region," Ashena wrote on the social media app Telegram.

"Whoever put his foot beyond the red line should be ready to face its consequences."

Iranian television also described the airport attack as "the biggest miscalculation by the US".

"The people of the region will no longer allow Americans to stay," the country's state broadcaster said.

Trump's only response since to the attack has been to tweet an image of the US flag.

Excerpt: Iran has vowed to exact a 'crushing revenge' on American forces in retaliation for the killing of Quds commander Qassem Soleimani - leaving the Middle East on the brink of a conflict that could quickly spiral into World War 3

The Iranian National Security Council is currently meeting in Tehran - chaired by Ayatollah Khamenei himself for the first time ever - to consider its response.

At their disposal is the world's 13th most powerful military, a host of militia groups spread across the Middle East, proxy-forces such as Lebanon's Hezbollah and Yemen's Houthi rebels, and allies like Syria's Bashar al-Assad.

Targets in their crosshairs are likely to include US troops and military bases in Iraq and Syria, Israeli forces in the Golan Heights, tankers in the Strait of Hormuz, and Saudi Arabia's oil infrastructure.

While initial strikes are likely to be limited, they could herald a tit-for-tat series of events - drawing in Russian forces stationed in Syria defending a key Iranian ally in Bashar al-Assad, and Turkish forces fighting in the country's north.

China also has ships stationed in the Gulf of Oman and recently carried out joint naval drill with both Iran and Russia, raising the prospect that they could also become involved.

Saudi Arabia is already engaged in a conflict with Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen, and any escalation by Tehran would be met with a response from Riyadh.

Turkish strongman Recep Erdogan's troops are deployed in northern Syria and he is close to Russia and Iran as well as being a member of NATO - making his actions unpredictable if a conflict escalates across the region.   

The US, China, Russia and Israel all have nuclear weapons - with at least three of those possessing next-generation hypersonic missiles capable of breaching all defense systems.

Israel is also armed with nuclear weapons and is an obvious target for any Iranian attacks, but Benjamin Netanyahu and the IDF will not hesitate to defend themselves and have recently struck Iran-backed Hezbollah forces in Syria. 

If Iran decides to blockade the Strait of Hormuz, as it has often threatened to do in the past, a host of world powers including European nations which rely on the oil which flows through the waterway could find themselves having to defend their interests.

Ultimately, if the tit-for-tat exchanges between these countries escalated far enough it is conceivable but unlikely that it would end with a nuclear exchange - and destruction on a global scale

Country by country, here is how the conflict could play out:

IRAN

The country has an army which is thought to number around half a million active servicemen, along with a population of some 82million from which to draw reserves.

At the military's disposal is an arsenal of ballistic missiles, tanks, attack helicopters, fast jets and gunboats.

While Iranian forces are unlikely to be involved in initial fighting, if the situation escalates then they could be dragged into a ground war with the US.

In the event that US forces are deployed into Iran itself, the country's biggest asset is geography: Surrounded on three sides by mountains, a fourth by ocean, and with a vast desert at its center, it poses a formidable obstacle - even for the US Army.

There are a number of non-military actions that Iran could take within its own borders which would threaten the US, including ramping up its nuclear program.

The country has breached Uranium stockpile limits and been enriching to above energy-grade levels since Trump tore up the deals, but could begin enriching to weapons-grade levels in response to the latest threat.

If that is the case, then US warships, bombers, and cruise missiles could be used to take out the facilities, having prepared plans to do so many times in the past.

Cyber attacks have also become an increasingly popular method of warfare and could be used by both Iran, America and their allies to attempt to win an early upper hand.

Targets would likely include Iranian nuclear facilities - which were successfully targeted with the Stuxnet virus in the past - communications equipment, radar, power networks and other key infrastructure.

To nullify the threat of American drones, Iran could use anti-aircraft missiles to shoot them down, as it did in June last year.

Iranian missiles could also be trained on US warships around the Arabian Peninsula, including the Lincoln Carrier Strike Group, but this would be an extreme option and likely only taken after a ground invasion. 

China also has ships stationed in the Gulf of Oman and recently carried out joint exercises with Iran and Russia, potentially dragging them into any conflict at sea

Muslims believe the same as Creators: This is another War for Israel

But don't ever make the mistake that a Muslim will ever befriend a Creator. Muslims in America, Britain and Australia are the first to denounce Creators as RACIST! ANTI-SEMITIC! ISLAMOPHOBIC! Why? Because Muslims are just another amongst the inferior mud races. They will publicly profess love for their Jew brothers, even as they kill you for being WHITE and privately accuse you of participating in the War for Israel.

DON'T MIX WITH MUDS!

Prepare for war in the streets.

Cailen.

We are going to waste all our resources fighting these wars in the Middle East. From an Australian’s perspective, they mean not only more unwanted refugees from troubled areas, it means our guard is down when China encroaches on our region by buying off our neighbours, cunningly awaiting an invasion.

Iran has fired more than a dozen missiles targeting US troops based in Iraq in a major escalation of the brewing conflict in the Middle East.

The attacks on a reported two military bases were launched in retaliation for a US drone strike that killed its top commander in Baghdad last week, Iranian official news media said on Wednesday.

The branch of Iran’s armed forces behind the attacks, which has come in two waves, has also threatened to target the cities of Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and Haifa in Israel, if bombs are dropped on Iranian soil

It also said if the United States responds to its attacks, then “this time we will respond to you in America”.

The second round of attacks started an hour after the first phase took place, Tehran-based Tasnim news agency reported.

The Pentagon has confirmed that Iran launched more than a dozen missiles at US military and coalition forces in Iraq

“It is clear that these missiles were launched from Iran and targeted at least two Iraqi military bases hosting US military and coalition personnel at Al-Assad and Irbil,” Jonathan Hoffman, assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs, said in a statement.

“We are working on initial battle damage assessments,” he added.

Tensions between the US and Iran have been steadily escalating since 2018, when US President Donald Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal and reimposed tough new economic sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

Since the 2000s, Iran has been accused of developing nuclear weapons and threatening stability in the Middle East.

Mr Hoffmane said US troops in the region had been on high alert “due to indications that the Iranian regime planned to attack our forces and interests in the region.

Here we go! :'(

The threat of a war between the United States and Iran may have briefly cooled, but the danger is far from over and the stakes could soon be higher than ever before.

If US speculation that Tehran has plans to build an atomic bomb is correct, the world could be contending with a nuclear-armed Iran in just months.

Among a raft of bombastic pledges made in the lead-up to the 2020 election, US President Donald Trump has vowed to retaliate hard if Iran decides to grow its weapons stockpile

His threat comes as Iran on Saturday admitted to “unintentionally” shooting down a Ukrainian jetliner and killing all 176 passengers and crew.

To understand how the Iran-US crisis developed, click here.
After a tense week of escalating violence in the Middle East, Iran has now stopped playing by the rules outlined in its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

Its unofficial withdrawal from the hard-won deal follows Wednesday’s ballistic missile attacks on US airbases in retaliation for the killing of its top commander by a US drone strike last week.

Under the agreement, Iran was forced to abide by tight restrictions designed to limit its ability to build nuclear weapons.

In return, major countries like France, China, the US and Australia promised to lift tough economic sanctions against Iran’s trade, energy and banking.

Now, by ignoring parts of the agreement, the Islamic Republic is free to speed up its enrichment of uranium and build more advanced centrifuges to enable it to build nuclear weapons.

This is exactly what the deal – championed by Barack Obama and formally abandoned by Mr Trump in 2018, and now informally by Iran – aimed to avoid.

Mr Trump was quick to address this renewed threat as he made a public address on Thursday

But Tilman Ruff, co-founder of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), said Iran already possessed most of the materials and equipment required to build an atomic bomb.

“It’s certainly feasible for Iran to have nuclear weapons within no more than a year,” Mr Ruff told The New Daily.

“I’m sure there are forces in Iran, strengthened by this escalation, that would want to build nuclear weapons.”

Tit-for-tat rhetoric between the US and Iran that escalated into violence in the past week was so alarming it triggered fears of another war in the Middle East.

Tensions reached boiling point when a US drone strike deliberately killed Iran’s most powerful military commander, General Qassem Soleimani, at a Baghdad airport.

The general’s funeral was attended by hundreds of thousands of wailing Iranians and cost the lives of dozens during a stampede on the crowded streets
