    Location Iran. Green pin on the map.

    Reuters story published on Tuesday mentions the next false flag incident to move the war against Iran forward.

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s surprise visit to Baghdad this month came after U.S. intelligence showed Iran-backed Shi’ite militias positioning rockets near bases housing U.S. forces, according to two Iraqi security sources.

    He told Iraq’s top brass to keep the militias, which are expanding their power in Iraq and now form part of its security apparatus, in check, the sources said. If not, the U.S. would respond with force.

    “We don’t want anyone interfering in their country (Iraq), certainly not by attacking another nation inside of Iraq,” said Pompeo’s State Department.

    Left out of this is the fact the US illegally invaded Iraq and continues to have occupation troops and bases in the country.

    In December, the Iraqi parliament demanded the US take its troops and go home after Trump made a surprise visit. He didn’t talk with Iraqi officials and instead engaged in a photo op with troops.

    Pompeo’s warning centers on the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), an umbrella group comprised primarily of Shia militias. Groups within the PMF include the Badr Organization, the Hezbollah Brigades, the Martyrs of Sayyid Brigades, Asaib Ahl al-Haq, Jund al-Imam, and others.

    The US focus on the PMF groups is not because they are a threat to US occupation forces, but rather because their political influence is growing. The US left the task of reining in the PMF and merging it into Iraqi’s army to Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi.

    Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr won the most seats during the May 2018 election.

    “Al-Sadr’s alliance comprising of communists and secular Iraqis has announced it is fiercely opposed to any foreign interference in Iraq—whether Tehran’s or Washington’s,” notes GlobalSecurity.org.

    Also ignored by Reuters and the rest of the corporate war propaganda media is the fact Shiite political and paramilitary groups have long demanded the withdrawal of US troops in Iraq and had previously engaged in armed resistance to the occupation.

    According to The Atlantic, the PMF groups are Iranian proxies and “would be an effective tool for further escalation—and for reviving an old narrative that casts U.S. troops as an occupying force in the country.”

    Jeffrey Goldberg and The Atlantic are telling us the idea that US troops in Iraq are there illegally and this is opposed by the vast majority of Iranians, both Shia and Sunni is basically “old” and irrelevant.

    Goldberg, editor-in-chief of the liberal magazine, supported the invasion of Iraq and believed the neocon lies about its illusory weapons of mass destruction and Saddam Hussein’s fairy tale relationship with al-Qaeda.

    Shia targeting of US bases and its embassy in Baghdad are not a recent development, as The Atlanticnotes elsewhere.

    Late last year the Trump administration issued a warning:

    The United States will hold the regime in Tehran accountable for any attack that results in injury to our personnel or damage to United States Government facilities. America will respond swiftly and decisively in defense of American lives.

    In other words, any attempt to evict the US from the country will be considered an attack on the US by Iran.

    On Tuesday it was reported a top British general, Maj. Gen. Christopher Ghika, deputy commander of Operation Inherent Resolve, expressed his opinion the Shia militia groups do not pose a threat.

    “No—there’s been no increased threat from Iranian-backed forces in Iraq and Syria,” Ghika said during a video briefing.

    “I think it’s important to say that many of them are compliant and we have seen no change in that posture since the recent exchange between the United States and Iran,” he added.

    Sec. Pompeo and national security adviser John Bolton—rumored to be on the way out of the Trump administration (we can only hope)—will continue throwing out red herrings to augment their fallacious arguments in favor of killing thousands of Iranians.

    The corporate propaganda media will continue reporting skewered facts in a simplistic fashion as we wend our way to a war with an unknown outcome.

    The CIA long ago made sure the corporate media is a welcoming conduit for endless propaganda, lies, misleading simplification, and scary fairy tales taken in by a gullible and intellectually lazy public.

      2. Him

        The neocon, deep state, globalists never sleep. Watch the oil shipments to Europe get disrupted. The tankers won’t pass through a war zone. No insurance.

      3. JRS

        I hope Trump sacks John Bolton, but I have my doubts. Anyway, Pompeo, Haspel, and Abrams would take up the slack.
        May 1st the Albanian president along with military leaders and diplomats made a visit to the USS Abraham Lincoln (you know, the one sent to the Persian Gulf). The CIA has transferred the terrorist organization, MEK, to camps in Albania. Bolton was instrumental in getting MEK removed from the US terrorist list several years ago. He has long believed he can use them to facilitate regime change in Iran. They can speak Farsi and can pass themselves off as Iranian Navy personnel…because they ARE Iranians. They are trained in covert operations by the CIA. Kuwait media reports that MEK operatives have been arrested trying to buy speed boats in the Persian Gulf. Look for a false flag from these guys blamed on Iran.

        • Him

          JRS, the US had the MEK on a large compound in Iraq, protected by US troops. The US would use them for terror attacks against Iranians. Our government is the leading sponsor of terror in the world. Al Qaeda, ISIS, MEK, PKK, Taliban (against the Soviets). And on and on. The US government isn’t really ours.

      4. JRS

        CIA: What’s the orders from up top?
        Bolton: Boss said plans to attack Iran.
        CIA: Trump said that?
        Bolton: Trump…the boss? Snort…chuckle…
        CIA: Bwahahahaha!

        Off topic: fungus

        If you get nail fungus, it is a sign that your body is riddled with an internal fungus, invading your brain, and destroying your internal organs, and your skin and scalp and hair; making your sweat smell foul.

        Fungus is a type of bacteria. It is a large, particularly dangerous, bacteria that can kill you slowly or quickly.

        It can cause lung problems and asthma.

        Taking probiotics and prebiotics and generally building up the gut and good bacteria to fight off this parasitic bacteria is crucial to your survival.

        Fungus are everywhere. They’re in convalescent hospitals and gyms. Kill em before they kill you.

        You need a strong immune system.

        .

        • Wrong, fungus is not a bacteria, do your homework and stop spamming.

            Post action. The government issued us that the economy was fine; the Federal Reserve said likewise, Zero Hedge showed me facts, quite obvious facts that the aforementioned were privy to that showed otherwise. I sold in 2007 pre crash. There were no WMD in Iraq when we were assured that there were. Why did the US use its Air Power to help Islamic Fundamentalists overthrow Libya and put crazies at the helm? Who is arming ISIS? It’s certainly not Russia or Iran as ISIS is fighting them or their proxies?

                  It shows that the US repeatedly lies. It’s a fact that no WMD was found in Iraq and 4,497 American paid with their lives does not concern you? WTC #7 falling for no logical reason doesn’t make you question? WTF is the matter with you?

                      Somebody’s been lying to me
                      But when the wrong word
                      Goes in the right ear
                      I know you’ve been lying to me
                      It’s getting rough, off the cuff

        It is a good a time as any to re-cap what Wes Clark was told some months after 9/11.

        “It’s bad: we are going to invade Iraq.”

        Wes: “What does Iraq have to do with 9/11?”

        “They don’t: we are taking down five countries in five years. Iraq, Somalia, Libya, Syria, Yemen and then finally, Iran.”

        How is all that going now? Iraq is done, Somalia is a mess but under U.N. control, Libya is done, Syria is done, Yemen is getting done. Iran is now on deck for a major smack-down.

        Sometimes things take a little longer but we get there in the end. Iran’s goose will get cooked sometime soon.

        • Kevin2

          The safest way not to become a casualty in Iraq is to not be in Iraq. Why are we there? Simple question. Why destroy a nation that was the enemy of Islamic Fundamentalists and leave a power vacuum for them to occupy and then do it again in Libya?

          Your nephew is in the same boat as my cousin who died for nothing (except of course to prop up the Military Industrial Complex) was in Vietnam and I hope for his sake and yours he fairs better.

          OBTW the communists in Vietnam were not in a world wide orchestrated takeover and they fought Chinese communists in 1979 and stopped the genocide in neighboring Cambodia (a direct result of a power vacuum created by the US). The Vietnamese left Cambodia after stopping said genocide.

            KILL OUR GUYS? No shit moron, it’s called defending yourself from outside invading forces that have no business in your country. What would you do if you were in a small country and say Russia came over and started bomming the shit out of you and occupied your country and stole all your wealth?

          British General Contradicts U.S. Claim of Increased Threat From Iran-Backed Militias

          The top British general in the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS says there is not an increased threat from Iranian-backed forces in Iraq or Syria, despite claims to the contrary by the U.S. to justify increasing its presence in the region.
          “No – there’s been no increased threat from Iranian-backed forces in Iraq and Syria,” Maj. Gen. Christopher Ghika, deputy commander of Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR), the coalition responsible for counter-terrorist operations against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, said in a video briefing, according to the Guardian.

              We’re not going to kill a billion or Islamics so just leave them there. Restrict immigration as much as possible with them. Certainly do not support the Islamic Fundamentalists and use them to overthrow the non religiously ruled Middle East governments like Iraq, Libya and Syria. Christians were more protected by their previous (pre US intervention) governments than post. Keep out of their neighborhoods as much as possible.

        Irving Kristol and his Trotskyite coven invented “neocon”, Billy carried on Daddy’s evil. “neocon” …..
        “I have been a neo-Marxist, a neo-Trotskyist, a neo-socialist, a neoliberal, and finally a neoconservative.” – Irving Kristol, Neo-Conservatism: The Autobiography of an Idea
        To get a sense of the horror these ‘revolutionaries’ brought to Russia and to the white people and Christians, we need only read the words of Trotsky as he explained how the Christians and whites of Russia, the dominant race, were going to be treated.
        THIS is what the kristol family supports, THIS is Trotskyism: ““We must turn Russia into a desert populated by white Negroes upon whom we shall impose a tyranny such as the most terrible Eastern despots never dreamt of. The only difference is that this will be a left-wing tyranny, not a right-wing tyranny. It will be a red tyranny and not a white one. We mean the word ‘red’ literally, because we shall shed such floods of blood as will make all the human losses suffered in the capitalist wars pale by comparison.” – Leon Trotsky
        NeoCon was INVENTED by Irving Kristol and his CABAL of TROTSKYITE COMMUNISTS. Irving Kristol himself was once a member of the “Workers’ Party”—a Trotsky-influenced political group. In his Neoconservatism: The Autobiography of an Idea, Kristol admits to being “lucky to have been a young Trotskyite and I have not a single bitter memory.” Leon Trotsky was born Lev Bronstein in 1879 he supported the concept of the “Red Terror” — the destruction of all the enemies of the revolution. “Ruthlessness,” Trotsky said, “is the highest revolutionary humanism.” Once he personally ordered the execution of every 10th man in a regiment that had fled from a battle.
        Trotskyism renamed Neo Conservatism, Leon Trotsky advocated for form of Communism called Permanent Revolution Permanent Revolution, in the eyes of Trotsky, was a world where somewhere a communist revolution was taking place and the old order was being overthrown, bringing in government by the people. To achieve this, he wanted Russia post-1921 to actively export revolution abroad, using the expertise that the Communists had gained since November 1917 to achieve this. He wanted Russia to send experts abroad to assist revolutionary movements and he wanted Russia to help finance such movements. Trotsky believed that a world experiencing a permanent revolution could only strengthen the hold of the working class and destroy what he viewed as the old order that had done all it could to strangulate the workers. Neo Conservatives are generally Zionist or supporters of Zionism, who work the revised plan of permanent revolution, rebooted now as permanent war in service of the Israeli agenda. The Project for a New American Century, called PNAC was a neoconservative think tank, which focused on American foreign policy. PNAC was an organization led by influential and mostly dual citizen Zionist conspirators, a group of people serving the interest of Israel over the interests of Americans.
        In the 1970s neoconservative Irving Kristol aptly described the Republicans as “the stupid party.”
        NeoCon is COMMUNISM wrapped in an American flag.
        NeoCons refuse to WEAR an American uniform ….
        they just wrap themselves in the flag and send YOU and YOURS to be maimed and

        Communism is government ownership of the means of production having reached the theoretical classless society as proclaimed by Marx. Socialism is government control / ownership of the means of production prior to the evolving into theoretical classless society. Neo-Conservatives are many things but most importantly they’re tools of the globalists who they themselves are not communists. They use communists as human resource managers but subscribe to the opposite of business / banking ownership of government. We’re witnessing a hybrid of fascism at the top with elements of forced wealth distribution socialism at the bottom.
