Whether war breaks out is truly anyone’s guess, but expect ‘all hell’ to break loose if it does. That would also mean terror attacks within the United States since it’s considered the ‘great Satan’ always in support of the Jewish state. It’s said hundreds, if not thousands of terror cells within the United States are waiting for the ‘green light’. America’s borders have been porous for years, allowing for piece-by-piece transfers of dirty bombs and biological weapons possible.
Israel carried out airstrike on convoy in Syria on Sunday killing 11 people
Among them were commanders from Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah
Today Israeli general warns they were likely planning attack on Galilee
Israel moving troops to region after Tehran warned of ‘crushing response’
Senior Iranian and Hezbollah figures killed in an airstrike in Syria this weekend were likely planning an ‘imminent’ attack on Israel, security sources have claimed.
Six Iranian army chiefs died alongside five Hezbollah militants after an Israeli helicopter fired rockets at a convoy in the Golan Heights region on Sunday.
Among those killed was Iranian General Mohammed Allahdadi, as well as commander Abu Ali Tabatabai, who is known to have worked with both Hezbollah and Iran. Continue reading →
Iran is Syria’s strongest ally in the Middle East, and has provided Assad’s government with military and political backing for years. In September, the top commander of Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard, Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari, said the elite unit had high-level advisers in Syria. Iran also is believed to be sending weapons and money to Syria as it endures its worst crisis in decades.
“Syria plays a very key role in supporting or, God forbid, destabilizing the resistance front,” Velayati was quoted by Iran’s semiofficial Mehr news agency as saying. “For this same reason, (an) attack on Syria is considered (an) attack on Iran and Iran’s allies.” Continue reading →
There you have it. It doesn’t matter how much the United States distances themselves from Israel. Having said this, the United States might as well throw their entire weight behind whatever move Israel makes, as it makes no difference in the eyes of a suicidal Iranian regime.
AFP – Iran could launch a pre-emptive strike if Israel prepares to attack it, a senior Revolutionary Guards commander told broadcaster Al-Alam on Sunday, a day after his boss warned that conflict was inevitable.
Should Israel and Iran engage militarily, “nothing is predictable… and it will turn into World War III,” Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh told Iran’s Arabic-language television network.
He added that Iran would deem any Israeli strike to be conducted with US authorisation, so “whether the Zionist regime attacks with or without US knowledge, then we will definitely attack US bases in Bahrain, Qatar and Afghanistan.”
He warned that Israel “cannot imagine our response — and it will sustain heavy damage and that will be a prelude to its obliteration.”
On Saturday, the head of the Revolutionary Guards, General Mohammad Ali Jafari, said war between Iran and Israel “will eventually happen, but it is not certain where and when.”
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.
