Out of all this, there is one thing that needs to be made crystal clear:
The supreme leader Ayatollah is the highest authority in Iran. He is second to no one. He gives the orders, the rest listen. Likewise with Ali al-Sistani in Iraq.
Having said this, what we can discern from his remarks is that we can be 99.9% certain when he says something, he means it.
The middle east exploding into a regional war and spilling into other countries was already a foregone conclusion and posted about here several times. Now we have a pretty solid timeframe.
Additionally, Iran already has hundreds, if not thousands of terror cells throughout the United States — through proxies such as Hezbollah, the IRGC, Fatah, so on and so forth, for example. Once they get the “green light”, that’s it. It will not be the usual “it’s happening in a far off land” scenario.
This is not to cause panic or ‘fear monger’ as some would call it, but America’s homeland and the public needs to wake up, brace for the worst and hope for the best should war really kick off. America has never had such a threat on the homeland before.
Here is the full article, and video:
On July 27, just before Friday prayers, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei summoned top Iranian military chiefs for what he called “their last war council.”
“We’ll be at war within weeks,” he told the gathering, debkafile’s exclusive Iranian and intelligence sources disclose.
Present were Defense Minister General Ahmad Vahidi, Khamenei’s military adviser General Yahya Rahim-Safavi, Armed Forces Chief Major General Seyed Hassan Firuzabadi, Revolutionary Guards Corps commander General Mohammad Ali Jafari and Al Qods Brigades chief General Qassem Soleimani. The commanders of the air force, the navy and ground forces were also there.
Each of the participants was tapped to report on the readiness of his branch or sector for shouldering its contingency mission.
While retaliation had been exhaustively drilled in regular military exercises in the past year, Khamenei ordered the biggest fortification project in Iran’s history to save its nuclear program from even the mightiest of America’s super-weapons. Rocks are being gathered from afar, piled on key nuclear installations, covered with many tons of poured concrete and finally plated with steel.
That same Friday, the US Air force unveiled its new Massive Ordnance Penetrators. Each bunker buster weighs 30 pounds and is able to penetrate 60 feet of reinforced concrete.
Turning to retaliation, the war council endorsed a battery of paybacks for potential US and/or Israeli pre-emptive strikes against its nuclear program. They would start by announcing enhanced uranium enrichment up to 60 percent – that is close to weapons grade.
Oft-tested ballistic missiles, Shehab-3, would be loosed against Israel, Saudi Arabia and American Middle East and Gulf military installations.
Hizballah in Lebanon and Hamas and Jihad Islami in Gaza stand ready to pitch in against Israel with attacks from the north and the southwest.
Saudi oil export terminals would be blown up and mines sown in the Strait of Hormuz to impede the export of one-fifth of the world’s oil.
Khamenei put before his war council a timeline of weeks for the coming conflict – September or October.
