We possess documents and information showing the direct supports by the US imperialism for this highly disgusting stream [IS] in the region which has destroyed the Islamic countries and created a wave of massacres and clashes,” Fars news agency quoted Izadi as saying. Continue reading

The Perils of Not Listening to Iran

  • The Iranian firing of a missile within 1500 yards of U.S. aircraft carrier Harry S. Truman in December, and the kidnapping and photographing of a U.S. Navy ship and crew (the photographs were a violation of the Geneva Convention) were test cases. Other than an apparent temper tantrum by Secretary Kerry, there was no American response. Oh, actually, there was. Mr. Kerry absolved his friend Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif of responsibility.
  • The Iranians were confident that the Americans could be counted on not to collapse the whole discussion over violations along the edges. Their model was American behavior in the Israeli-Palestinian “peace process.” The Palestinians violate agreements and understandings with impunity because they know the Administration is more firmly wedded to the process than the specific issues on the table.

Supporters of President Obama’s Iran deal (JCPOA) are starting to worry — but that is because they believed him when his lips moved. They heard “snapback sanctions” and pretended those were an actual “thing.” They are not, and never were. They heard Treasury Secretary Jack Lew say the U.S. would never allow Iran access to dollar trading because of the corruption of the Iranian banking system and Iranian support for terrorism — and they wanted to believe him. And sanctions? The administration said that sanctions related to non-nuclear Iranian behavior — support for terrorism, ballistic missile development, and more — would be retained.

Germany’s Industrial Giants Ready to Reap the Benefits of Iran Deal

The crooked deal has not only set Iran on a guaranteed path to nuclear weapons, but has now made them an imminent economic powerhouse in the southern hemisphere — or, King of the South. The Obama administration had successfully bought them time and helped them rise.

Top Iran officer: Islamic State a US plot to alter Mideast

This is one of the few correct things you’ll hear coming out of this corrupt regime. ISIS was created to overturn Syria and Iran, yet be portrayed as a random uprising. This is also why ISIS hasn’t been destroyed yet, because they could’ve been eliminated yesterday if the Obama administration really wished it. Instead they make token strikes for public consumption which steers public opinion into believing something is actually being done.

Iran: ‘We Welcome War With the U.S.’

As was mentioned a long time ago several times (see also HERE, HERE and HERE), when (not if) the all-out regional war commences, expect every U.S. military base in the Middle East to be a target for thousands of Iranian missiles which are well within reach. The losses would be a catastrophic blow to America even though it would likely win a prolonged war against Iran at this moment in time. Because of Iran’s mutual defense pact with Syria, expect them to get involved and just set the entire Middle East on fire. Their Hezbollah, Hamas and other terrorist proxies would also be used. Israel would suffer attacks and have to retaliate. Hundreds, if not thousands of sleeper cells who have been waiting in America for years, could likely be given the green light to carry out their attacks. Don’t forget about the economic shock effect this would have on the global economy, especially as the Strait of Hormuz would be closed and possibly the Suez Canal. None of this even includes the nuclear war scenario should Israel fear for its existence.

This is a worst case scenario that hopefully would never happen, however, it’s better to be psychologically prepared for the anticipated fallout — which is why it’s very crucial to follow events even though it’s repetitive ‘bad news’ that you don’t want to hear.

 

A senior Iranian military commander on Wednesday said the Islamic Republic would “welcome war with the U.S.” and “set fire to every military base from which a hostile U.S. plane takes off,” according to reports in Iran’s state-controlled media.

Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Commander Hossein Salami threatened the U.S. during a television interview aired on Tehran’s state-run television. Continue reading
