NATO Envoy: Military Planning Against Iran and Syria is Underway

Do you LOVE America?


    The grand chessboard is in play.

    Last month we reported that the Pentagon has issued a warning order to ‘Prepare for War’.

    According to Dmitry Rogozin, Russia’s envoy to NATO, it’s not just Israel and the Pentagon that are getting ready to expand the middle east theater:

    Rogozin said in an interview with Russia’s Izvestia daily newspaper published on Friday that the NATO was pursuing a long-reaching goal of preparing an attack on Iran, adding that the alliance intends to change governments whose views do not coincide with those of the West.

    “The noose around Iran is tightening. Military planning against Iran is underway. And we are certainly concerned about an escalation of a large-scale war in this huge region,” Rogozin added.

    The Russian envoy further pointed out that Syria and later Yemen could be NATO’s last steps on the way to launch an attack on Iran.

    This comes as there are speculations that Israel is preparing for an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities to divert attention from Palestinian efforts to join the United Nations.

    If Russia is to be believed (and be assured that Mr. Rogozin would not be giving interviews without prior consent from Mr. Putin and President Medvedev) the missile defense shield being built by the EU is designed not to defend against missiles from Iran, but to prepare for an attack:

    Washington has said its nuclear missile defense plans were designed to prevent any possible missile strikes from Iran or North Korea.

    “The missile defense system is not purely a defensive system,” envoy Dmitry Rogozin said. “There are serious and authoritative experts in Russia and in other countries who fear that the creation of a European missile defense system, officially assigned the task of blocking a threat from Iran, may in fact be a pretext for preparing an attack on Iran.”

    Since 2001 Western nations have continued to expand their prescence in the region, and with the events in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and other nations it’s becoming clear that not only is World War III on the horizon, we may very well be involved in it right now. Tension is building, and as the economic, financial and political woes in the US come to a head, we can fully expect blame to be shifted, in one form or another, to Iran and others who will be deemed hostile to world peace and the safety of the United States.

    Iran is in play, but first Syria and Yemen may need to be addressed. Rogozin claims that this, too, is becoming reality:

    NATO is planning a military campaign against Syria to help overthrow the regime of President Bashar al-Assad with a long-reaching goal of preparing a beachhead for an attack on Iran, Russia’s envoy to NATO Dmitry Rogozin said.

    The UN Security Council condemned on Wednesday ongoing violence in Syria and urged the country’s authorities to stop using force against peaceful protesters, while saying the current situation in the country has not yet called for NATO interference.”

    [This statement] means that the planning [of the military campaign] is well underway. It could be a logical conclusion of those military and propaganda operations, which have been carried out by certain Western countries against North Africa,” Rogozin said in an interview with the Izvestia newspaper published on Friday.

    We can ignore this as pure speculation and conjecture, or we can consider that this is how World Wars have started in the past. The chess pieces moved around on the board for over a decade before World War I became reality. The same was true for World War II.

    What we may be witnessing now is the prelude to a third war that will encompass most of the world. If Iran is attacked it is difficult to predict how the Chinese and the Russians will respond, but considering their position on Libya, they won’t be happy about it. Couple that with trillions in their reserves that will be hyperinflated away and the battle for critical resources like oil, water and food, and we have a recipe for disaster.

      1. Very possible. Gog and Magog.

      2. “Peace on Earth” …yeah right.

        Humans should stop ever saying “Peace on Earth”, becasue humans love war waaaaaay too much. If humans are not wasting money, lives and body parts on real wars….. humans are wasting money and time playing video games about war.

        One only need to look at the billion Dollar(plus) in sales on war video games like “Call of Duty: Black Ops”.

        It is sickening.. it is disgusting… it is human.

        We deserve what is coming, we are disgusting. In 2011+ years we can not figure out how to live and let live? We are pathetic.


        ….and the military industrial complex just smiles.

        • There is an urgent need for this! BHO urgently needs a military victory to discredit the right and claim they failed to get the “mission accomplished.” He also needs to get the attention hounds off the S&P, our credit rating fiasco and this depression we are in. This will be different though as Assad won’t take it sitting down like Qudaffi has…..America will like face its first foreign combatants since WWII.

          • military victory?

            My country has not won a war since… well, lets do a quiz.

            When was the last time the United States “won” a war?

            • GRENADA …. maybe, it’s been so long.

            • Losing can be a “victory” if that is the primary objective.

            • Iraq and Afghanistan…. Works in progress
              Libya? No
              Ist Gulf War ….. Not really, Saddam stayed on his side of border and thumbed his nose
              Panama ….. ? Can’t really call it a war
              Grenada …. ? Not really a war
              War on drugs? No
              Bosnia? No
              Kosovo? No
              Vietnam? ….. Noooo
              Korea? Stalemate!
              WWII? YES …. WE HAVE A WINNER!!! 66 years ago!!!

            • That guy: We haven’t won any wars in the 20th century except subdued Japan. We had lots of help from European countries to take out Nazi control, but gave half of Germany to Russia. No win wars right on. Now, let NATO go whip some butt in Syria and Iran big time, let’s see if they are successful in doing that.

            • I gotta say, as a former Marine, Japan was not subdued. Army troops loaded onto ships for transfer to far-east fighting (from Europe) mutinied en-route (look it up, it’s true). Japan was no where near surrender until they were A-bombed. The entire United States Military is still passing out Purple Hearts that were manufactured to cover the invasion of Japan.

              On all other points, you are 100% correct. The United States of America has not “won” a war since 1945. Sad note, but politicians (of BOTH parties) have fucked over the American people time and again.

            • we have not “won” a war since WWII because the powers to be and the UN will not allow us to…You can not say for one minute if we were allowed to go full blown on any of these countries like we did during WWII with no reguardes for collateral damage that it would all be over in total victory in a matter of days, we are too worried about hurting other coutries feeling

        • @dove

          Is it “Human” or is it ‘Government”?

          Human nature may be to fight for ego reasons but “WAR” is a government action.

          Humans are pawns and the chess player is government(s).

          In my opinion!

        • Dove, you and I are sisters…let all hawks go spend 4 hours at a veteran hospital like I did today—they ain’t all old geezers there with requests for hearing aids and false teeth…there are some real damaged kids there….for what..for who???
          We know the answer…and it AIN”T for peace.

      3. The last, desperate moves of a dying empire. Brace yourselves and check your preps, folks.

      4. Yippee Ki Yay!

      5. Murphy’s Law, when things are bad, left alone they will get worse. We live in a new world without leadership.

        The good ship Liberty is adrift, the captain aloof and the crew is out on recess.

        What could possibly go wrong?

        • Ah, but maybe there is leadership and maybe they have a plan and maybe it is working perfectly, for “them”.

          btw- Can anyone explain the space station? and what that is all about? and why we spent the money on it? and now that we retired the shuttles, how we can not even get to it anymore? What is the deal with that? Honestly, I am reaslly asking, wtf is up with that?

          How many ways can “they” waste our money?
          How many jobs can “they” transfer to other countrys?
          How many ways can “they” dream up ruin this great thing we had?

          There seems to be leadship, but it seems “they” are leading us into oblivion.

          • It’s called Hope and Change…They’re HOPING we don’t catch on…as they CHANGE everything about the U.S.!!!

          • That Guy: Good question. Maybe they have finally deciphered the technology from Roswelland have something up their sleeves; besides the usual BS. 🙂

          • The space station is set up for the “Elite” to escape to when the time comes and TEOTWAWKI happens. Then they’ll have no one else to fuck but themselves.
            It’s called the space station so that the funds come from us and not out of their purse. It’s as simple as that. The money is only wasted in our eyes, never in theirs. There’s always a purpose!

          • They intend to force the space station back into the earth’s atmosphere in 2020, which will cause most of it to burn up on reentry with the balance supposed to land in the sea/ocean somewhere and sink.

            I just know that we will receive the announcement at any moment listing all the wonderful scientific breakthroughs and fantastic technological advancements that we have obtained from this very expensive program.

            Please don’t tell me that we haven’t gotten anything out of this programs that has cost how many 100s of billion $???? Nothing really revolutionary to help rebuild our once great manufacturing infrastructure?????

            I can’t help but believe that we have been ‘had’ again. Bread and Circuses anyone?

      6. Perfect timing.

      7. Russia has already told Assad that he may face war crimes for further massacres of his people. Russia has written Syria off. Syria is not relevent to China.

        Israel warned Russia and China more than a year ago they would NOT allow Iran a nuclear weapons capablility. Subsequently, China is looking to buy high tech from Israel and will buy oil from whoever is left in Iran after the fireworks are over, and will provide Iran loans and technology to rebuild after the fact.

        It is only a matter of time before Syria is “disarmed” by the West, and the West wants ground troops from Turkey to help. No doubt promises of territory and other benefits if they do. Maybe a false flag attack on NATO member Turkey to ignite the ammo dump.

        Yemen is not a concern, but it is the only country in the world with more assault rifles per capita than US.

        Israel will blast Iran’s nuclear facilities at some point and draw US into the fracus when Iran responds in the Persian Gulf. Its a question of when, not if.

        Thats why you need to buy GOLD rather than silver. Gold will spike. Sell some at the top, and reload when it drops.

        • Just curious, why exclude silver ? Recent lack of perfomance or something else ?

          • Silver is presently a great buy to me, I bought some in the past 3 trading days and am happy to have more below $40 an ounce. Gold will see some profit taking before long and silver may trickle down with it. Then again they may not stop until $2,000/$50

          • Do not look a gift ass under the tail Sam. You will stimulate him. You have little patience. Besides, you will get a kick.

            • LMAO

          • Silver is a manipulated market – don’t buy until it’s back down to $30, and then all bets are off.

      8. Are the Russians weaker than they look? They have a naval base in Syria. Strange they would let it be taken from them. They permit US Navy ships to sale on the Black Sea in their own back yard. They let Serbia fall prey to the US during the Kosovo crisis. They caught the US off guard during the Georgia invasion. Russia needs another victory against the US or they’re just paper tigers. Maybe the Russians will stand side by side with Iran. I doubt it. I do expect another big military adventure by the US/Globalists. What do you readers think?

        • You need to have your head examined. Why would Russia need “another” victory? Russia’s last victory was WW2 and the most recent one was the fall of the Soviet Union. I, as Russian have rejoiced to the latter. Pray to God there is no other War, which will leave the entire planet for dead.

        • I think Russia likes the US apologist. If he’d turn off his printing press their investments in our debt will be worth a small fortune… let BHO execute by smart bomb Assad and family with love from Russia and BHO gets needed military victory and shows neocons how it’s done….he wins in land slide, and we give up on any oil conflicts we might have with Russia

      9. Obviously we’re trying to shoot our way out of another recession.

      10. Apparently Obama sees murder of Muslims as a sport.

      11. this is a very touchy subject…
        1.Russia helped set up their nuclear program.
        2.Russia and China are becoming trading allies without using the dollar to trade goods.
        3.Iran is trading oil with Russia an China
        So this could drag us into a war that makes WWII look like a street fight. i am siding with U.S. and Israel because any president that threatens to wipe a country off the world map need to be removed but at what cost? We just lost 31 great heroes today……how many more orphaned children do we want to leave behind.

        • Ahh, your comment “We just lost 31 great heroes today……how many more orphaned children do we want to leave behind” That just, well, really kinda’ makes me wanna’ vomit drop. You are either F’n ignorant or are an “we are the best” elitest which is really, undeserved to say the least.

          You so heroicly mourn our 31 but I have to imagine that the (10’s of 1000’s) oprhans we’ve CREATED in our current campaigns, probably doesn’t even register with you. Oh, but our orphans are more deserving than “those” orphans… right?


          • Thanks.

        • Crash and burn – Please produce the proof that Iran EVER said that THEY are going to wipe Israel off the map.
          I’ll save you the time -they did’nt.
          What WAS said is Israel should stop their continual assault on the middle east or someone might retaliate.
          Way to go toeing the MSM line.
          I expect better in sites I read or I don’t read said sites as the truth is what matters.

          And BTW, should Israel start a war w/Iran Russia and China WILL be involved.

          Are you aware that a mere 6 months ago 5 China subs surfaced on the bumpers of 5 of our aircraft carriers simultaneously and undetected as a show of force?

          Iran has missles stationed in the mountains in the Persian Gulf that will sink our aircraft carriers and in turn block access to oil.

          All hell WILL break loose.
          Don’t be surprised when Russia,China, and yes Iran hand the U.S. their ass.

      12. Declaring war worked so well for the Bush administration, why wouldn’t this administration consider it?… hope this does not happen.

      13. we can’t hit Iran and/or Syria with our prior commitments unless there is a massive call-up of reserves and recently released personnel.

        The only way to get these numbers to come back is another psychological ploy…a false-flag attack to piss-off enough U.S. people that they’ll want to go fight in the sandbox yet again. Chances are it just won’t happen.

        Without America’s logistics, weapons and numbers, NATO is a one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest.

        Look out for flase falg attacks like 911 or a massive call-up of troops and more stop-loss implementation….

      14. Here’s a thought: remember the timing disired by the PTB. In their warped thinking, they need a bigger war, for the reasons Mac mentions above. Sad but true. Things like this serve their purposes by washing out debt by inflation, punishing regimes that don’t play the central banksters game, and de-sensitizing the masses at home to get them to accept more and more control by the gov.
        Still, timing is key for them. If Obama is needed as the puppet of choice(and he may not be), then the trigger event should occur approximately 10 to 15 months before the election. That gives enough time for the sheeple to rally round the flag(since we’ve been attacked), but not too much time to get bored and dissatisfied with the ongoing war effort. Just a hunch, nothing scientific, but I’d say the time to watch for an ‘event’ is probably now through Jan next year. Of course, I could be wrong about all of it. I may wake up any minute and find I’ve been dreaming. Me and Wally will go over to Eddies and play football, then come home and Mom will have dinner and apple pie for dessert. Or I’ll be stranded on an island with a couple of cute girls and a big lunk who keeps calling me little buddy…

        • I always liked how Ginger and Mary Ann couldn’t get laid to save their lives.

        • Mary Ann, definitely Mary Ann

          • Ginger would fake it… Definitely Mary Ann!

        • This is just a rope a dope. Giving out cheap money yesterday, the day traders are jumping back in to play the casino. They want inflation and we haven’t gotten it yet. Granny hasn’t sold her gold ring & tea set yet for fiat to buy some cat food. WWIII hasn’t started yet. It’s a race to the bottom. The dollar will be the last bill standing but it won’t be pretty. Maybe mushroom can write.

          In 1993, Wells published Mary Ann’s Gilligan’s Island Cookbook with co-writers Ken Beck & Jim Clark, including a foreword by Bob Denver. That was some coconut pie.

      15. Headline on ( and it’s true ). S&P fell exactly 6.66% today.. YEOWWWW ! 🙂

        • Think DOW.

          • S&P500 down -6.66%

            • No blue chip on S&P.

          • think DOW..N

            • Ya beat me too it….:)

          • Think DOW-N 😉

            • have’in a problem with the smiley face thingy, but you got her, thanks REB!

      16. I keep remembering a passage in the bible that saids something to this affect, weep and howl Ye rich men for wealth has come to not, and they cast their gold and silver into the streets. I just wonder if this refers to our timeline coming up, could it be so devastating that things we thought had value no longer does. Gold and silver I don’t have, I do have eternal life. Just something to think about, for myself anyway! Could it be the U.S. is not mentioned in scripture because we are so devastated either from within or from an outside attack? I wonder.

        • Lot’s of people wonder the same thing.. although I have always thought that the description of ” great city Babylon” sounded vaguely familiar… specially the part about anyone having ships being made rich by her and that they all stayed far away for fear of her burning when she will be destroyed in one day… oh well, we’ll see and I don’t wanna get kicked off SHTF for preachin.. 😉

          • Yes sir correct, couldnt reply to your reply about living in south Florida as I do and I hope you didn’t think I referred to S.F. as san fransisco, lol

            • nah…just making sure..

        • Biblical prophecy for the end times:

          “They will throw their money in the streets, tossing it out like worthless trash. Their silver and gold won’t save them on that day of the LORD’s anger. It will neither satisfy nor feed them, for their greed can only trip them up.”

          (Ezekiel 7:19)

        • …or we finally get ourselve straightened out,restore our republic and tell the world we learned our lesson and we stay uninvolved in what the rest of the planet does…I can hope!

      17. And yes I will fight the Bastards with my last breath!

        “Yemen is not a concern, but it is the only country in the world with more assault rifles per capita than US.”

        Big statement unsupported by facts.

        How many full auto true “assault rifles” are in civilian hands in the US? Whatever the number was in 1986 is the same number today and therefore below 100,000. I’m sure you know for practical purposes every Swiss male between 21 and 45 possesses a true assault rifle with full full auto capability. Per capita their probably number one next to Israel.

        There are less than 400 murders per year with a RIFLE OF ANY TYPE in the US including high capacity semi auto (miss labeled assault). Semi auto high capacity rifles are not very commonly owned relative to other firearms in the US and even more uncommonly used in murders in the US. The stats are from the FBI Uniform Crime Reports published annually. Your chances of being murdered with one is less then being hit by lightening which accounts for about 90 deaths /yr.

        The claim that the US is “flooded” with either true assault rifles or semi auto high capacity rifles is a myth.

        • Statistics are for liars. Come South.

          • Voy allí todo el tiempo. No es tan malo

            • Si!

          • Here here! I personally possess two high-cap assault rifles (referred to as such because, at one time, they were capable of full auto). Full auto sucks anyway. Three-shot bursts are far more accurate and do enough damage anyway. If you can’t kill ’em with three, you better run!

            • If you ain’t shootin’, you better be loadin’, and if you ain’t loadin’, you better be runnin’!!!
              Or something like that??

        • Sam: Silver is good, but gold is a different animal. It is where the BIG money goes in crisis. Big money does not flee to silver.

          Silver is good and it will be a great way to buy and sell during the Changes. Gold will be the way to preserve your wealth.

          • ok thanks. That sounds reasonable and probably explains why I haven’t made much in silver but have made a butt load in gold.

            • Silver has yet to take off. High volume of paper trading is giving the illusion of abundance when in reality a short squeeze is looming.

              I think silver is a better long term investment, but it’s certainly more volatile in the short term.

        • Kevin 2: Its a true statement. Google it maybe you will find it too.

          • There are at best estimate 4 million high capacity semi auto center fire rifles that as defined are not “assault rifles” which have full auto capability. There are they believe 70-80 million firearms in civilian hands in the US. Semi Auto high capacity rifles account for approximately 5% of firearms in civilian hands in the US. The Firearms Ownership Protection Act of 1986 put a freeze on new full auto firearms not registered prior to that date from going in civilian hands. Those firearms in civilian hands under Title II class 3 (Machine guns) number half of the 240,000 registered of which half are in police / professional security forces hands. The full auto rifles are classified as assault rifles that would be identical to the Military AK-47.

            Israel and Switzerland are awash in assault rifles not the US with 4 million of the watered down semi auto (not machine gun) rifles in civilian hands. Their military being of a reserve nature bring their issue weapons home with them. They have real “assault rifles” that per capita exceed 4 million semi auto only rifles in 300+ million peoples hands. How many of your neighbors have an AR-15 in the US as opposed to a full auto version issued to almost every Swiss male between 21-45 with ammo in their home? The rifles you mention in US hands are not assault rifles anyway. Per Capita second only to Yemen. Nonsense, absolute nonsense.

            Google the FBI Uniform Crime Reports regarding illegal use of rifles of ANY TYPE. It is less then 400 murders / year in a nation of over 300 million people.

            • Kevin 2: I did not compare the US to Switzerland or Israel, or anyone but Yemen. The statement I made about Yemen is a true fact.

              Minutia maybe, but I thought it was interesting FACT and passed it along. I really don’t care about the other stuff you mentioned. If thats important to you, fine.

        • Don’t look here.

        • LOL speak for your own smaill town Kevin2. Here the AR15, AK47 and the magazines for these guns are very hard to come by here. But you maybe right about getting shot with one of these guns, must of my friends and myself only shot them out in the country,and most of my bud’s bought them for shtf purpose.I don’t keep it by the door I keep my shot gun and my 9mm for home defense, locked loaded and ready to rock.But trust this when shtf you will see those guns come out by the 1000’s

          Have a great day

      19. So i guess this is it folks, a winding down of economic prosperity for all, banish young peoples hope for a better life, and then send the angry youth to war.
        sounds like Population reduction 101 for dummys

        • MC: what do you expect, an E-ticket ride at Disneyland? WE are the Last Days. Buckleup.

      20. It won’t happen. Iran has the largest army in the Middle East. There’s no rebel force to help with air strikes. We’ve seen how ineffective the bombing in Libya has been.

      21. Any war with Iran would be madness. Seriously does the government want to risk oil at $190-220 a barrel while the global economy is heading towards a shitstorm of epic proportions? I really do not think there will be an attack on Iran. However if we do go to war with Iran it would be a stalemate or worse a defeat for us. Israel sees Iran as an existential threat and will try to attack Iran. However it does not mean it will be successful. The only way militarily to stop Iran’s nuclear program is a ground invasion. The chances of this is very low and it would make Vietnam look like Grenada.Any war with Iran would go down like this:

        Israel would attack Iran’s nuclear centers successfully but they would face reprisals. Iran,Syria,Hamas,and Hezbollah would fire missiles at Israel. Israel’s David Sting,and Iron Dome systems would be overwhelmed. the Israeli air force would have to retreat from the north and go south because hezbollah has M-600 missiles,Syria,Iran would fire a multitude of missiles at Israel. Israel would then plan a ground invasion of Gaza and southern Lebanon. Israel at this time will do a bombing devastating blitz of Gaza,Syria,and Lebanon. Syria is getting anti ship[ missiles from Russia which with no doubt be sent to Hezbollah. So Hezbollah would sink at least one Israeli ship like last time. The air war over Lebanon will be very different. with upwards of 40,000 Katyusha rockets stockpiled, Hezbollah still retains the terror option. If Hezbollah’s plentiful M600s were fired in high-volume volleys, the Arrow system could be overwhelmed. If the IRGC [Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps] launched Iranian high-value Shahab-3Bs and variants timed with Hezbollah’s M600s, the Islamic republic could deal telling blows to strategic targets…. Hezbollah is said to be flush with the Russian-made SA-7 “Grail”, the SA-14 “Gremlin” and the SA-18 “Grouse.”
        These shoulder-fired SAMs are a point defense for covering mobile missile launchers like the M600 when exposed during the firing and retirement cycle. Also in the bargain came the SA-8 “Gecko”, a mobile launcher with a range of about 16 kilometers and a height of 12,000 meters. Mix these new capabilities with Syria’s new radar system supplied by Tehran… For Israel, the cost of setting back Iran’s nuclear program a few years before dealing decisively with Hezbollah and Syria is now at an all-time high
        If Israel goes to invade southern Lebanon they will fall into a trap. The Lebanese military made a clear that if Israel invades Lebanon that they will fight along side Hezbollah. So Israel will face a bloody guerilla campaign. In Gaza it will be an urban warfare nightmare.But Israel goes all out.Remember Israel has been holding back and when it faces Hezbollah and Hamas Israel will unleash the true power of its military.

        Iranian special forces and Iraqi Shiite militias will start cutting the long US supply line alone Route Tampa from Kuwait City. Then the Shiites on southern Iraq will start a campaign on attacking the remaining 30,000 US troops. Iranian irregulars would cross the border to give support and man power for the Shiite militia. Shiites in the Iraqi army and police will defect to the side of the militias and start killing US troops. The troops will be able to hold their own but we would be forced to retreat from Iraq. The reason because at this time the Iraqi govt would collapse and all gains that was made from the surge will be un done for good. We could possibly see at least 100-180 US troops being killed when the Shiites cut the supply line temporarily(because our air support will stop the blockage) and start conducting guerrilla attacks on them.

        On Afghanistan we could see Iran reluctantly giving the Taliban SAMs. That would make the war effort harder to win.

        Iran has formidable asymmetrical retaliatory capabilities. For example, all of these are vulnerable to Iranian sabotage or hundreds of Iranian missiles on the eastern side of the Gulf: from the narrow Straits of Hormuz, which still handles 25 percent of the world’s oil traffic; to Bahrain, the U.S. Fifth Fleet’s headquarters where the population is two-thirds Shiite and the royal family is Sunni; to Dubai, where about 400,000 Iranians live, including many who are “sleeper agents” or favorable to Tehran; to Qatar, now the world’s richest country with per-capita income at $78,000, which supplies the United States with the world’s longest runway and sub-headquarters for CENTCOM, and whose LNG facilities are within short missile range of Iran’s coastal batteries; to Saudi Arabia’s Ras Tanura, the world’s largest oil terminal, and Abqaiq, nerve center of Saudi’s eastern oil field.
        So an attack against Iran would be disastrous in multiple levels. Yes conventionally they are a paper tiger,but their strength is in asymmetrical warfare. they will try to destabilizes the region and create as much casualties on us and Israel.

        So war with Iran would be a disaster for our economy and the global one. REMEMBER THE ONLY TO STOP IRAN’S NUCLEAR PROJECT IS A GROUND INVASION. AIRSTRIKES AND NAVAL STRIKES WILL NOT DO THE JOB! Iran’s facilities are deep underground. Plus Iran’s navy has SUNBURN missiles and EXOCET missiles that could do serious damage to our navy in the Persian Gulf. So that is why our government will not go to war with Iran. It will be to costly in blood,treasure,would plunge the middle east into further chaos.

        • Exactly. That is precisely why BHO might go for it.

        • MA: I thought the percentage of all the world’s oil passing through the Strait was 60%.

          • Actually I was wrong it is 40% of the worlds oil passes through the Strait of Hormuz.

      22. This is the beginning of the end folks. Im not saying its going to go straight down from here, although it very well could. I have been guessing 2012 will be the year the floor completely falls out. I cant emphasize enough the importance of being prepared. Store some food and water, buy a gun for protection, and keep close to your Bible. Quit fooling yourselves thinking things are going to get better. Joseph in the Bible stored 7 years of grain and ended up saving an entire nation. The collapse and fallout of our country and the world this time is inevitable. Look whats happening economically and politically across the globe! Look at whats happening with wars/riots/famines/starvation across the globe! Look at all the natural disasters that have happened over the past 10 years! wow! Hopefully Gods will be done.

        • I wanna be the one to pull the pin!

          • heads or tails?

      24. Once again, there will be no war against Iran. Don’t worry about it.

        Many reasons.

      25. There might not be war with Iran…but history tells us there will be war.

      26. This is total bull shit. There will be NO war agains Iran and syria. None. Who in the hell makes this stuff up?

        Total crap. Hold me to this in a year. No war against Iran and Syria. Hold me to it. Stan


        • Stan; I gotta disagree. Here’s why. Israel will not allow Iran to possess a nuclear weapon capability (fact). Iran will not repudiate their right to nuclear weapons despite their claim that they will not enrich beyond 20% (fact).

          Israel has already made clear to both Russia and China that it will not allow Iran to possess a nuclear weapons capability (fact).

          Israel will attack Iran (eventually) with a “surgical strike’ to Iranian nuclear facilities. Iran now has weapons grade material for 4 nuclear weapons. It does
          not have a delivery system. They probably need 400 to be successful.

          Several Russian scientists responsible for assisting Iran died in a plane crash recently. A co-incidence I am sure. Not so co-incidently several Iranian scientists associated with Iran’s nuclear program have been assasinated, gunned down in the street or bombed.

          When Iran’s nuclear sites are hit in a first strike by Israel, Iran will move to block the Strait of Hormouz and attack US bases in the Gulf (as they have promised).

          When Iran moves to strike US bases in the Gulf, US military forces will destroy Iran’s response capability completely. Israel attacks Iran, Iran responds against US, WE destroy Iran in self defense.

          That is the Israeli end game.

          • Stan: Syria is anyone’s guess, but the Russians have washed their hands of him, and today, the Arab world has also repudiated him. He has no friends but Iran and Hamas.

            Never underestimate the NWO.

          • However there is no political will for war with Iran right now. And can you imagine oil at $200-245 a barrel? That would crush the US economy. Second Iran is not Iraq. Iran is sitting on a stockpile of Exocet, Sunburn 22 and SS-NX-26 Yakhonts missiles. The 5th Fleet sits in a lake surrounded by Iran’s rugged mountains, and will be decimated by the missiles. The US fleet will arrive in the Indian Ocean, but will be helpless because the straits of Hormuz will be showered by a Phalanx of hundreds of Exocets.

            Bombing Iran will not solve problems either. First, its nuclear program is built around deception, redundancy and hardening. Like the recent revelation of a second enrichment built under a mountain on a military base at Qom, Iran only admits to covert efforts at nuclear weaponization when it realizes its cover has been blown. Speaking of which, the facility at Qom also illustrates another feature – the amount of redundancy in its nuclear program. Since the US knew of Natanz, having a second site would have also made sense (and perhaps a third, and fourth, etc, whose existence has not yet been revealed). That way, limited bombing sorties of the sort that crippled the nuclear programs of nations like Syria or Iraq would not work in Iran. They make sure to harden these facilities against US bunker-busters, allowing a margin of safety to account for any black US capabilities.
            That would put our navy in a very serious situation.
            Iran backs the Shiite militias who in turn have connection with the Iraqi Army and police. If the shiites lead an uprising that would put our troops in a precarious situation.

        • Sweet! I can go back to eating cheetos in Mom’s basement.

      27. When you have a declining empire history tells us you always get war. Nothing is for sure, but i would put my money on history. We might not go to war with Syria or Iran but we will go to war with somebody. Has happened with every major declining empire.

        • Tony: You also have war with an ascending “empire”. It makes no difference. Multiculturalism has failed. Civilizations are in conflict.

          War or negotiation resolves conflict; if the sides are evenly matched and willing to compromise.

          Fanatical Islam will not negotiate. The regime in Tehran is fanatical, even if its population is not.

          There will be no “golden age” and no peace until Jesus comes. Lock and load.

      28. “Someday, somehow, somewhere there will be another war”


        Bold prediction man. You got balls.

      29. The question is: Have we ever had Peace in this country?

        “War is a state of organized, armed and often prolonged conflict carried on between states, nations, or other parties[1][2] typified by extreme aggression, societal disruption, and usually high mortality.[1] In addition to the existence of this organized behavior pattern amongst human primates, very similar organized warlike behavior patterns are also found in many other primate species such as chimpanzees,[3] as well as in many ant species.[4][5][6] The set of techniques used by a group to carry out war is known as warfare. An absence of war is usually called peace.

      32. if there is gonna be an attack on Iran it will be before sept UN hearing for Gaza and West bank statehood. If Isreal allows Palastine to be recognized as a state it will be disateruous for Isreal. (Not really us though)

        Iran is the whipping boy. Iran can absorb an attack. A fulls scale invasion would be ww3. But an attack on nuclear facilities will not.

        I don’t see an invasion but there could be an attack. And if there is an attack expect the US to use i as “Terroist will get even” and put in a DRAFT! There’s the answer to the troop issues. Once Iran is “attacked” but not invaded our government will come up with some lme excuse of Al-Queda wanting to get even for Isreal stopping the nuke program and we will need to step up security.

        An attack will be disasteruous for our rights.

        • Rachel: Obviously you are too young and were not around for the Viet Nam War protests. There will not be another draft.

          The NWO will not draft Americans for wars of unfettered capitalism. The American people will not allow it. There would be blood on the streets again and DC would come apart at the seams.

          That is why the NWO government has moved to an all volunteer army, cruise missiles by the millions, drones, and pilotless aircraft.

      35. The US or Israel will stage a “Gulf of Tonkin” type phony attack to get the ball rolling. All of our military moves in Central Asia and Libya are for denying China access to oil and natural gas. Iran has a huge deal for supplying natural gas to China. I recall a US Under Secretay of State telling China that just because they signed a deal with Iran for gas didn’t mean China would get that gas. Pretty bold talk. The Globalists want war. Our people will provide the bodies. As a veteran I wish I could warn everybody.

Of course, they will also arm the insurgents in both Afghanistan and Iraq with Anti-Aircraft missiles. This won’t be a “new” war, rather a broadening of it.

      43. Perhaps obama sees himself as the next FDR. After all, WWII was the event that pulled the USA out of a depression the last time.

        Only this time the stakes are much, much higher. Nuclear weapons are all over the world. The muslims are fired up to fight their holy war. Europe has turned even more pansy than they were back then. We are not even united over here in the USA – we are fighting the political battle for our freedom within our own nation. And, last but not least, the community organizer has abandoned or crapped on most of our allies.

        We’d be pretty much fighting all alone.

        • the corp wars of the USA have always been fought alone.

          Allies are just pussies with political backing.

          None of the recent wars were fought for any of our rights or our interests as citizens of this country.

          Only fought for the corp interests.

          Our soldiers are not fighting for “We the People” of this country..or our rights..(as it is the longer they fight over there, more of our rights over here are stomped on)
          they are fighting for the Corp. and for the Corps ability to continue to extort from any place in the world they(TPAB) so choose.

          Government thugs on our payroll..brainwashed into thinking they are “serving their country”..
          oh they are serving their country alright..but not the people of this country.

          what freedoms have we gained by any of these wars..can you name one?

        • Ah, another half educated USan indulges his ideologically approved red-white-blue Euro hatred.

          Europe has turned “more pansy” than they were in WW 2? Daß ich nicht lache! Who do you think it was fighting your lovely Soviet allies in the frozen hell of Stalingrad — space aliens? Of course, on a diet of USan jingoistic pap, you probably never even HEARD of this battle (only the largest and single most decisive battle of all of WW 2).

          Like most “male” USans, you think like a fourteen year old who has sprouted his first chest hairs and goes in deathly terror of being called “chicken.” This fear makes him so easy to manipulate a mongoloid could do it.

          By the way, since when is the servile obedience to Israel’s commands to fight this-or-that country at the drop of a hat a measure of “virility?” I submit that you and your ilk, who are directed by the will of another and not your own, are the REAL pansies. Or PUNKS. Take your pick.

          • Hhahh..well its ok for you not to understand what it is im saying or to even see it..most people dont wake up to this until its way late..

            as it were you kinda went off on a tangent..but thats typical too

            and im not directed by anyone, thats why i have my own view and opinions

   didnt answer my question..what rights have we gained from any of this?

            real tuff one aint it?

      45. odd.. our man-child president and his mouth peices have cancelled all events today.. even the standard weekly radio address and the press briefing..

      46. “After all, WWII was the event that pulled the USA out of a depression the last time.”

        When 10% of the population are conscripted into the armed forces depleting the labor force of manpower sure there are employment opportunities. You however cannot buy a car (more cars were sold during the height of the great depression then in WWII), food was rationed as was fuel and auto tires.

        WWII did not pull us out of the great depression. The aftermath of WWII with 2/3 of the worlds industrial base destroyed and ours intact pulled us out of the great depression and greased the way for an economic boom for the next 25 years.

        The best year to be born in the US was 1936. A male being born then was too young for Korea and too old for Vietnam. Opportunities we’re virtually endless and by the time the great industrial evisceration took place you were on pension with a home having an inflated value.

      47. ARGHHH!
        So a Russian Government official takes a reasonable statement from NATO regarding syria and turns it into war planning by the west to use a weak incomplete inaddequate defensive European shield as some awesome offensive weapon of mass destruction.

        This isn’t conjecture or speculation, its PROPAGANDA! !

        • lol.


          There is no doubt that this could simply be Russian mainstream media molding perceptions as they see fit.

          • Mac: I’m not so sure. Lybia was undertaken to protect the NWO Europe oil supply as Gaddffi had been making noises about nationalizing all oil and gas. Iraq is divided and no longer a voice or player in the Great Game.

            Syria is a big thorn in the side of any Mideast Peace Plan as it funnels Iranian money to Hamas and others. Silence Syria and the Great Game changes.

            They are liars, cheats, and thieves. They are heartless and ruthless to a point only matched by the CIA, KBG, and Mossad.

            Check again.

            Why stop playing the game if you are winning? The NWO is running the table. They can only be stopped at the US ballot box.

            Never underestimate the NWO.

        “Yemen is not a concern, but it is the only country in the world with more assault rifles per capita than US.”

        Not a true statement. Israel, Switzerland and a host of other nations have far more assault rifles then the US. Actually true selective fire (full & semi auto) assault rifles are very rare in the US. In the US the semi auto number is approximately 4 million. Call it one per every 80 people. Per capita the US is second only to Yemen. Not true. The US would be far behind on the per capita list.

      50. Kevin2: Here is a link for you. Not the one I read recently, and I do not remember where I read it, but this link will do.

        I really don’t want to spend any more time on minutia. There are many links, find one you like. If you look long enough maybe you will find the one I based my statement on.

        Again, I did not mention Israel or Switzerland in my comment. Why do you insist in including them in the “debate” or including all of the other extraneous info about the FBI etc? Not relevent to my statement.

        I really don’t care which country has the most guns per capita. The context of the post was in refernce to the threat Yemen might be and our likely conflict with Yemen.

        Yemen is of no consequence.

      51. Kevin2: here is a link that shows Yemen second to the US in firearms by a wide margin, but I suspect that includes hand guns as well.

        The weapon of choice in yemen appears to be an ak-47 and that may be the reason the article I read mentioned assault rifle per capital in Yemen ahead of assault weapon ownership in the US.

        At any rate, I am done talking about assault weapons. I got mine and lots of ammo that’s all I care about.

      52. all weapons are “assault” weapons..

        Mostly just depends on what they are assaulting..

        maybe saying high capacity long range, possible full auto weapon would be more fitting?

      53. The only true political power comes from the barrel of a rifle. Vote from the roof tops!

      54. Excellent article.

        “The Russian envoy further pointed out that Syria and later Yemen could be NATO’s last steps on the way to launch an attack on Iran.”

        … Russia?
        … China?

        “we can consider that this is how World Wars have started in the past. The chess pieces moved around on the board for over a decade before World War I became reality. The same was true for World War II.”

        You know it’s “The grand chessboard is in play”, and it’s in its FINAL stages.
