Mission: Destroy Iran! Take More Oil! By Peter Ewer
I suppose that it is a bit like death, international politics and war, and all that. When young, with something to lose, death is feared. But with advancing age and decay, not so much. America is decaying, President Rump is finished, so I suppose Jared has whispered in his shell-like ear; go ahead, wipe out Iran, then Venezuela, the people will remember you, even if Hillary 2.0 has you put in a cage. Yes, master I must obey, Rump said, sliding another hot dog down his throat.
“The Pentagon will reportedly station four B-52 heavy bombers in the Middle East in response to what the White House called a “credible” Iranian attack plan on Americans or US allies in the region. Two of the warplanes will leave the Barksdale Air Force base in Louisiana for Qatar on Tuesday, where the other two will join them some time in the coming weeks, unnamed Pentagon sources told CBS. They will be stationed at the US Central Command’s headquarters at the al-Udeid Air Base near Doha. The move comes after the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group set sail for the Persian Gulf on Monday. White House National Security Advisor John Bolton announced both deployments over the weekend, claiming they are a response to “a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings” related to an Iranian attack.””
Sounds like bs to me.
“After Venezuela’s army decided not to rise up and overthrow Nicholas Maduro, by Sunday night, it was Iran that was in our gun sights. Bolton ordered the USS Abraham Lincoln, its carrier battle group and a bomber force to the Mideast “to send a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime that any attack on United States interests or those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force.” What “attack” was Bolton talking about? According to Axios, Israel had alerted Bolton that an Iranian strike on U.S. interests in Iraq was imminent. Flying to Finland, Pompeo echoed Bolton’s warning: “We’ve seen escalatory actions from the Iranians, and … we will hold the Iranians accountable for attacks on American interests. … (If) these actions take place, if they do by some third-party proxy, whether that’s a Shia militia group or the Houthis or Hezbollah, we will hold the … Iranian leadership directly accountable for that.” Taken together, the Bolton-Pompeo threats add up to an ultimatum that any attack by Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Houthis in Yemen, or Iran-backed militias — on Israel, Saudi Arabia, the UAE or U.S. forces in Iraq, Syria or the Gulf states — will bring a U.S. retaliatory response on Iran itself.”
If Russia decides that it has had enough of this nonsense it will be World War III, but at this late stage of the game, it probably is not stoppable. Could it be that the US evangelical Christians are right that this is end times, only wrong about who will be raptured? Boy, won’t they be surprised to find that they are “left behind.” There should be some interesting stories before the world burns, and we who survive live the world of the Road Warrior/Mad Max:
