    US, Iran Mobilizing – Are We Going to War?

    On May 21, 2010 we reported that the President was deploying four carrier groups to the Persian Gulf. The report originated from the Debka File and was discounted by many as disinformation originating from Iran.

    It turns out that these reports were correct, as we have recently learned:

    …the Obama administration has ordered a massive buildup of U.S. forces in the Persian Gulf starting with Carrier Strike Group 10, headed by the USS Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier. Just last Friday an armada of more than 12 U.S. and Israeli warships passed through the Suez canal amid extreme security provided by Egypt. The ships are headed for the Red Sea and from there to the Persian Gulf. Another four U.S. warships will be making their way to the region to join the Strike Group. The Americans have also conducted joint air and naval strike practices with France and the U.K. under the command of American forces, while Germany is sending warships to the area, also under the command of American forces.

    Both Israel and the U.S. have positioned nuclear-armed submarines in the region.

    source

    At first glance, this may look like President Obama is deploying the Navy in order to enforce strict sanctions against Iran because of their nuclear program.

    However a former CIA spy deep inside the Iranian Republican Guard and author of the book A Time to Betray, Reza Kahlili (name changed to protect his identity), says that There Will Be War and the only way to avoid it is to immediately support the Iranian people in an overthrow of their current government:

    One year ago, the Obama administration missed an opportunity to support Iran’s uprising. They mistakenly calculated that back-door negotiations with Iran’s clerics and promises made by its rulers would bring cooperation on the nuclear issue. The Americans were duped and now find themselves grasping for another chance to support an Iranian uprising.

    ….

    The clock is ticking and the lives of hundreds of thousands–if not millions–are at stake. Now is the time to pursue all non-violent approaches: cut all diplomatic ties, expel Iranian officials and openly support the people of Iran. Only with international support will Iran’s people be emboldened to rebel and will regime loyalists abandon ship. The desire to overthrow the regime is already so great within Iran that this alone could be enough to lead to successful rebellion.

    According to Kahlili, we dropped the ball by not taking a stand when Iranian were protesting and being murdered in the streets. This was a golden opportunity, and we missed it.

    Now it looks like things are getting very serious. The US and Israel aren’t the only ones mobilizing:

    Iran, for its part, is also preparing for an all-out war in the Middle East. Before even a vote was cast at the U.N. on recent sanctions, Iranian leaders had ordered the Guards to build up. Reinforcement troops have been dispatched to the Iraqi and Afghanistan borders. Hezbollah has been armed to the teeth, and Syria was presented with missiles carrying larger payloads and longer range.

    Meanwhile Iran is busy pursuing its nuclear bomb project and enriching its supply of uranium faster than ever before, with the hope of testing its first nuclear bomb. Accomplishing this will fulfill the prophecy sought by the radical members of the secretive society of Hojjatieh, particularly its leader Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi, the person responsible for the initial election and fraudulent re-election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The Hojjatieh movement impatiently seeks the end of times and the return of Imam Mahdi, the last messiah.

    It is debatable that Iran is building a nuclear weapon. Do we just blindly follow our government about Iran’s nuclear production like we did in 2002 with Iraq and WMD? Or is it possible that there are bigger agendas at play?

    Up for consideration are a number of potentially conpiratorial, yet plausible thoughts:

    • There are millions of gallons of oil in the region and we need it, especially if new policies make it difficult if not impossible to drill in the USA.
    • If we leave the middle east, then who gets all of the oil in Iran and Iraq, and all the minerals in Afghanistan? Do we just let China and Russia have it? This is much bigger than just our need to get our fill of oil. If leave the middle east, the Chinese and Russians will swoop in and seize control.
    • When economies of countries collapse, politicians can never look in the mirror and blame themselves. While Americans are pointing their fingers at Congress and threatening to protest in the streets with pitchforks, our politicians will be looking to blame someone. If necessary, they will manufacture a crisis to make this reality.
    • It’s an election year, after all, and everyone knows that Presidents, Congressmen and Senators don’t get voted out of office if there is a war or significant terror threat.

    Whatever the case may be, it’s looking more and more like Iran will eventually be engaged bilaterally by US and Israeli forces.

    We’d like to think that the US Navy is in the region just to enforce sanctions and embargo Iran, but with all the Axis of Evil rhetoric against Iran for the better part of the last decade, our view is that there is a strong possibility of serious confrontation.

    We may very well be witnessing the precursors to World War III.

    UPDATE 06-24-10 12:48

    An update from the DebkaFile via Check It News reports that Iran has declared a state of war in its northwest region:

    In a rare move, Iran has declared a state of war on its northwestern border, debkafile’s military and Iranian sources report. Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps men and equipment units are being massed in the Caspian Sea region against what Tehran claims are US and Israeli forces concentrated on army and air bases in Azerbaijan ready to strike Iran’s nuclear facilities.

    The announcement came on Tuesday, June 22 from Brig.-Gen Mehdi Moini of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), commander of the forces tasked with “repelling” this American-Israeli offensive. He said: “The mobilization is due to the presence of American and Israeli forces on the western border,” adding, “Reinforcements are being dispatched to West Azerbaijan Province because some western countries are fueling ethnic conflicts to destabilize the situation in the region.”

      Actually this is just more Sabor Rattling .with the increased sanctions going on  and our military showing force off there cost  is jsut to put pressure on them .Unfortunately Iran is not going to cave in to the United States demand  . Our cource of action is the same as what we did in Iraq.  What happened in Iraq? Well we did sanctions and more sanctions and no fly zones  and what was the result? That the iraqis hardened there stance and this is exactly what iran will do and what the united states expects to happen  because it builds up to War. A proven tactic that gets the end results-although it does take Time. Ill be shocked if Iran isint attacked by  the summer of 2012. America needs the distraction  and soon because of our economic situation , War must occur with some enemy we can defeat (militarily but not politically) .

      The ‘Industrial Military Complex’ , that the late President Eisenhower warned us about in the 1950s, stands to make Billions if a military action against Iran moves forward.In my humble opinion, it’s all about the money, the oil, and trying to take peoples minds off the U.S. economy.

      I can’t believe that the so-called ‘best & brightest’ in Washington DC think that repeating history,(the Great Depression followed by World War II), will solve anything.In fact, the American People may be facing a Totalitarian Regime if this action is by design.A retaliatory attack on U.S. soil by Iran and/or its Allies could throw the country into Martial Law, allowing the current administration to stay in power indefinitely.If such an event occurs before the November elections this year, God Help Us All.Gear up folks, this is scary stuff.

      Correction ;
      I was referring to the ‘Military-Industrial Complex’ the late President Eisenhower spoke of in his farewell speach in Jan. 1961. Not the ‘Industrial Military Complex’. There is so much going on these days it’s difficult to keep track. :-)

      This is NOT sabre rattling. This is the real deal. Buy Gold!

      The Israeli have known for a few years now,  that at some point in time, they would have to destroy Iranian nuclear facilities if the Iranians refuse to give up the idea of nuclear weapons. That message has been conveyed repeatedly by the Israeli’s to DC, Beijing, and Moscow; which is why Russia and China have finally gotten on board with sanctions. They finally had to chose a side: capitalism or Jihad. Both were already committed to capital markets and the NWO. In the end, it was a no brainer: capitalism. They will sit this war out, pick up the pieces and put them in their pockets afterwards. Under contract of course!

      US naval forces are being deployed after exhausting all diplomatic efforts to bring Iran into the NWO as time has finally run out. Israel must engage Iran militarily or face sudden destruction. Once Israel attacks Iran, Iran will follow (to the extent possible) by attacking US forces and energy interests in the Gulf. Their mistake.

      The US will be forced to respond and will finish the job that Israel started. Iran will be neutered, its intentions set back twenty years, and the world will face all of this again in 2030, after the physical and financial Changes have destroyed American influence and rendered the US  “neutral” in world affairs.

      Stock up. Continue prepping. This is not the end, it is not even the beginning of the end, but it is another nail in the US Financial Coffin. War is never free. Ask the British.

      The US along with the Brits overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran in 1953(operation AJAX) ironically to keep cheap oil flowing to BP.
      The US funded the attack initiated by Iraq in 1980 resulting in 500,000 Iranian deaths.
      The US shot down an A300 aircraft full of Iranian women and children,all perished,we said “oops,sorry”…
      Now the US (and our owners in Israel) are threatening Iran for enrishing uranium to electric generating grade,even though they are signatories to the NNPT,a treaty that the Israeli’s refuse to sign-even though they have hundreds of actual nuke bombs.
      Who wonders why the hate us?
      Who can blame them?
      Every single Iranian child is taught these facts in school,not a single American child is taught this in school.
      We in America (and our owners in Israel) are the global terrorists.

      The preening Kenyan Obama is desperate to restore his wounded ego and so will put our service men and women in harms way as proof of that he is ‘one tough leader’ by bombing women and children of Iran.   Just like the missle attacks he approved in Pakistan with collaboration from Hillary ‘Branch Davidian killer’ Clinton.

      i cannot imagine the US just jumping into another war, even if a false flag was created for the perfect reason to.  (like attacking one of our ships in the gulf…even a supply ship).

      however, i also do not see any sort of “deliberation” like what the dog and pony show we saw in 2001-2003 before the “invasion” began.

      given the world wide protests in 2003, yet the obvious troop movements all up rt. 95 up to Maine (Bangor international Airport to fly to europe, then to the middle east), i cant see the buildup taking long either.

      for the US to get into another war, it would have to be an extremely dramatic or devastating trigger.

      ex:  sinking a carrier, or nuking a US city with some (obviously contrived) “evidence” from a passport belonging to some guy (who is probably still living) in saudi arabia who was funded by an afghanistan “terrorist” (former CIA employee).

      anyway…the trigger would have to be huge.  HUGE.

      An attack against Iran would be the worst thing this idiot president would do. First off Iran is not Iraq,they will retaliate and they will do it hard. They will fire thousands of missiles against Israel,also Hezbollah,Hamas,and Syria will do so as well. Then the shiite militias will turn against the troops in Iraq and plunge it into chaos. Over here Hezbollah agents will do terror strikes throughout the nation that this govt will implement martial law. The war in Afghanistan will get worse. Israel will be fighting four foes. Iran,Syria,Lebanese military/and Hezbollah,and Hamas. Bombing Iran will do us no good but piss of more fanatics.
      Why should we bomb Iran? We have a southern border that needs to protected but we protect Iraq’s and Crapistan’s borders. The situation is so bad in the southwest militias are heading there to fight of the paramilitary drug cartels. But the media and govt demonize the patriotic militias as “extremist”  I do not give a damn about the mideast no more. if Israel and want to fight let them fight but the US will be neutral and withdraw from the mideast altogether. Let them destroy each other and not get involved. i dont give a damn what goes on there! We need to fix our problems here. How can we afford another war,another war will bankrupt us faster. We need to bring the troops home to protect the border. Not fighting in foreign wars that does not benefit us at all.

      Obama is a decendant of Ismael .  His past, as we know, is shrouded in darkness.   His birthplace cannot be determined because, like all demons, his is a hidden and restless nature and he has no permanent home on this Earth.   This man’s destiny is inflicting, by deceit,  misery and destruction on God’s creation, Man, both of whom his master, Satan, hates.    Obama will decieve by the power of the tongue given to him by father of lies, Satan, and through Obama the evil one will wage one war on all who stand in his way in his quest for domination of the world.  Until he and all evil are crushed by the return of Jesus Christ.

      a few months ago (january/february) the senate intellegence committe held a hearing with a senior intelligence advisor , the name escapes me of who it was, but he was asked by the senate committee what the odds are of a serious attack on the USA and how soon, the advisor mentioned he : was certain the USA would receive an attack within six months. well here it is late June, and I seem to remember the cuttoff was around mid/late  July. just going by the 6 month time frame.l
      My concern was that the attack would cause the election process to be cancelled, meaning that we could be stuck with all idiot congress/senate and presidency for an indefinate period.
      This has been one of my many worries, that there will be no elections due to circumstances. thus we are stuck with this administration, regardless of effectiveness. and i personally think it’s by design, so as to further control/reduce  the population.

      The folks in Iran are Persian, not like the Arabs in Iraq in any way, shape or form. Most Iranians are of the Sheite (sp?) branch of Islam, not Sunni. They are well educated, intelligent and dedicated to their country. An attack on Iran will be nothing like the attack on Iraq was.

      We don’t have the money to fight the two wars that we are already involved in; where are we going to get the money or troops to fight another war?

      My family and I are putting the ‘finishing-touches’ on our preparations to hunker down here at home for as long as we can in an attempt to live long enough to see how this is all going to shake out. We DO live in interesting times. God Bless and good luck to you and your family.

      Iran isn’t necessarily “persian” either. Iran has the largest Azeri population in the world. If memory serves me correct Iraq is also a majority Shia nation, however the Baathists were largely Sunni.
      Sadly I think that if most people were to read all of these comments from SHTF readers, that they wouldn’t comprehend the general truths contained therein. It seems like most people’s knowledge has been almost entirely provided to them by mass media propaganda, public indoctrination (they call it school), and beyond that the remainder of their “knowledge” is derived from pop culture music, movies, and sports. In many ways the world doesn’t change and hasn’t for centuries, even millenia. It seems like if I try to discuss world events, history, or nearly anything else for that matter with either coworkers, friends, neighbors, or often even family, their knowledge is pretty much limited to whatever the mainstream media has told them. No surprise, I know. Would most people rather not know what’s really happening in the world? It surely seems like many would rather indulge in fantasy and outright infantile “entertainment”, e.g., sports, political theatre, mindless pop culture, and all the rest that this digital babylon has to offer. Only time can tell, but I’m not holding my breath.

    22. Everything in Amerika is now aimed at a 5th grade level intellectually.  Wow, I had a rude awakening last week.  On separate occasions, when I attempted to speak to people about drug dealing going on in our (countryside!) neighborhoods….when I tried to discuss Israel-Iran with ‘Indian-Charlie’ at the local bar…..when I stuck my neck out and brought up certain other issues, one about race, one about particle physics…
      I was shut down.   People would turn away, face the other way.  They would get up,  go to the bathroom, then have a smoke.  They would leave en masse like cockroaches when the light comes on.  AMERIKAN citizens are illiterate, unmotivated, lazy,  uncaring, AUTOMATONS.  NO ONE seems to be aware of all of the terrible issues facing all of us right now.  I feel like I now am living in a MAD MAX post -apocalyptic world.  And soon enough, it will be, I am afraid.  BEANS, BULLETS, BAND-AIDS!

I was astonished to see how easy the USA army won in Iraq despite previous plebiscite reports of how strong and trained Saddam’s forces were.   The new era of warfare will be unmanned machines attacking targets anywhere in the world…something like a star wars we have never seen before.  All of this is within the USA Military machines capablities right now.

      @b – Spelling man, spelling.  Then, after learning to spell, think.  If we “nuked” everybody that wasn’t our ally, after illegally invading Iraq, we would kill ourselves from all the fallout.  I’ll pass on that option, thank you though.

      @Mike – (I’m the Mike from the 7th, not the 19th).  Grammar.  Punctuation so you can be understood, would also be great.  If this new Depression has shown us anything, it’s just how interconnected we all are.  We sell goods to others, to do so we need their oil, still.  If we “nuke” all the “fuckers” in the Middle East (few of which are violent, most are like Christians, peaceful and loving people who just want to live their lives) we become no better then their extremists.  Therefore they win and we lose.

      Though with the overall stupidity of North Americans on the drastic rise, I’m not overly surprised by some of the comments on these forums.  Though I thought more people finding this site would be more intelligent.  Instead of your typical football/baseball watching drunk.

      @Leo – In the first Gulf War they said Saddam’s forces were well trained.  I never heard that once in the second.  I may have, admittedly, missed the retarded talking heads that know nothing mention this, who knows.  But no one really believed that, that counts.  Iran though, now, has the latest and most advanced anti-aircraft missiles Russia can make.  Granted likely worthless against our stealth aircraft if they stay far enough out of it’s radar range.  It’s more the terrain in Iran that is the problem and the same issue we’re having in Afghanistan now.  Deep valley’s.  If we were just to bomb Iran, likely not an issue.

      But in reality we do not have the forces required to invade, occupy and hold Iran.  And they can easily mess up the world’s economy with just a few dozen missiles we’ll never find along their shores near that wonderful choke point in the Persian Gulf.

      How many times do we have to listen to the president of Iran declare that it is his country’s religious duty to eliminate Israel and western influence? Is this a joke to some people? The year is 2011. How the hell can nations focus on trying to progress and fix their economies when you have a brutal regime in charge of a powerful military proclaiming to the rest of the world that is their religious duty to start WWIII? I hate war but I think we must strike Iran before they strike first. The government of Iran wants 1 of 2 things to happen in the near future. They either want to create an Islamic caliphate that would be the most powerful groups of countries in the world, or they want to destroy the world if the caliphate doesn’t come to fruition. By the way things are looking in the Middle East right now I doubt the caliphate has a shot at coming to be.

      It is scary to know that Iran is justifying all these inflammatory remarks in the name of religion. I know that is nothing new to the world, but come on. It is 2011 for shit’s sake. Looking back throughout history we can see that when groups of people telegraph their intentions of war to rest of the world in the name of faith, THEY FOLLOW THROUGH with what they said.

      I am more than aware that those in Iran who are calling for the destruction of Israel and war with the US are only an infintecimely small fraction of the Iranian people, but the fact of the matter is those looney tunes have the buttons in front of them to kickoff WWIII. For that, I feel awful for the people of Iran who don’t want those people in power. Unfortunately, I think that unless the people of Iran are able to take power out of the hands of the government, WWIII is inevitable and unlike the first 2 wars, this one will not end with a winner and a loser. It will end when the radioactive dust settles.

      I know there are things the US government knows that I don’t, but the chips are falling into place for it all to blow up in our face. Maybe it is too late, maybe it is not, but either way I look at it, America is between a rock and a hard place. People need to look at the freedoms we are given in America (freedoms like having the ability to talk trash about the US) and the freedoms not given in Iran. Which country’s ideologies would you rather see propogate? I believe the longer we wait to take out Iran, the better the chances we give them to take us out. The world is only big enough for so many people.

      I believe it was Albert Eistein who said, “I know not what WWIII will be fought with, but I know that WWIV will be fought with sticks and stones.”

      THIS IS JUST ANOTHER RUSE! THE LARGEST WAR IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD IS ABOUT TO BE FOUGHT!

      Add up all the propaganda that has besieged the media world the last couple of years.
      The result: a campaign to make our adversaries believe that the US is a crumbling and
      disintegrating civilization, one which is too weak and dysfunctional to engage IRAN! Even Bob Brinker, on his financial radio show on 6.26.11 referred to the government as “DYSFUNCTIONAL”. The Big War is coming!

      The US government will begin frightening people so they begin hording cash, food and fuel. One way of doing this is by saying that payments to Social Security will not be going out on time, because of the budget impasse. Retail sales will begin to tank. Civil unrest will increase. The stock market will begin a dramatic and historic decline. There will be saber rattling between Washington and Iran. The attack will probably occur on a weekend US evening, to minimize civil unrest. Martial law will be imposed, if we survive.

      Listen to the Republican Presidential contenders. The fear and apprehension in their speeches, speaks for itself. They know what is coming! All they can produce are garbled sound bites. They are directionless. Did you listen to the president and his latest press conference? There is fear in his voice!

      For example; The power vacuum created by the riots in the middle east (high food prices
      created by the US government and its foolish ethanol program) are acting like a magnet
      for terrorist organizations to establish themselves in these countries. These entities
      are now more concerned about their political advancement rather than a military one.
      They are now preoccupied by their new paradigm. When this war is fought, they will be
      disintegrated by the war machine and the Nukes that Iran has had for 20 years, when it
      attacks Israel.

      Between July 5th and August 1st 2011, the US, Israel and Nato will launch the war of
      all wars against Iran. We will lose. They will lose. There shall be no winners! Prepare yourself!

      If the government survives, The stock market will be closed indefinitely, otherwise, it will no longer exist!.

      The banking system will collapse. All major banks will shutter.

      The ensuing panic will collapse all infrastructures.

      Civil unrest will occur all over the nation.

      It will be difficult, if not impossible to find food.

      The elderly, infirm and those needing the basics of medicine will die.

      Mass unemployment will result in riots and burnings.

      After a nuclear incident, the confusion and resulting casualties would deem the US impotent, militarily and economically. Even if Israel and the US were to destroy Iran, the devastation would have a profound effect globally. The radioactive fallout alone, will affect all of the neighboring countries. This would also allow the US to suspend and not default on its debt. Do ya see it coming? Don’t forget an ally to Iran, that has nuclear weapons. That is North Korea! They can take out South Korea, and Hawaii. It may not be a good idea to buy a KIA right now. Do ya see it coming?
      You will notice that the political rhetoric will intensify in the next few weeks, until the war actually happens. And it will! It has been planned for a long time!

      It has been said for the last decade, that there are suitcase nuclear bombs in the US. When the war occurs, we will be finding out if they are right or wrong. That is, if we survive!

      Pakistan and India may go at it, at the same time we engage in the war. They both have nuclear weapons and are adversaries.

      Don’t let a good conflict(crisis) go to waste

      Beware the Government Media Complex!

      I see a lot of fear mongering within these comments. The fact is something big is coming, today is October 14, 2011 and I think everyone in the United States can feel the change coming. Is it world war three? I don’t know. I think more likely our problems will be internal and violent. The United States are not so united and political red and blue battle lines have been drawn. Will we have a leader to lift us out of this mess or will we continue down this path to civil unrest? It would almost be nice if we could peaceably agree to split the country up between left and right, this isn’t going to happen peacefully but it would be a kinder solution than what is coming. The US dollar may collapse after all it is all hocus pocus anyway. Who knows what is going to happen, certainly not any of us. The biggest mistake we made as a people was letting the bankers and to corporations run our government. Now we are the sheep being lead to the slaughter? Something IS coming, I just do not know what… I can smell it in the air.

      unfortunally, if we do nothing now, then this will bite us in the ass later when Iran declares war and launches their nukes at us. I do honestly believe that we will end up in a war and i will probably end up fighting in it. So please, all you readers over 35 run for the presidency and save my generation.

      1 1/2 years later we are still talking about attacking Iran, a disaster waiting to happen! Rumors say the summer of 2012, we shall see. If the attack comes how much radiation pollution will it cause? How much pollution is the Fukushima power plant causing, that the MSM won’t report on? Will we get a double whammy? I thought we had gotten rid of all the commie neocon crazies with this new administration, apparently not!

      One man here (Rokicka) has said it all. USA need to go back to GOD. Man should not marry a man and women should not marry each other. It’s abominations that bring plagues into the life of man when it drives GOD away. You can only find peace and love in God. No Power can bring about peace and love but the gentle spirit of The Gentle Saviour “JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH” The Prince Of Peace.

      Heed these words and be save or neglect them and pave the way for the wrath to completely consumes you but at once. A wise man open his heart to wisdom and heed wise words but only a fool despised them and his feet runs to do evil and at the end his fall become so GREAT.
