US planning ‘tactical assault’ on Iran in response to ‘tanker attack’ — report

UN sources believe that the United States is planning to carry out a “tactical assault on Iran” in response to the attack on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, which it blamed Tehran for without providing credible evidence.

Diplomatic sources based at the UN’s New York headquarters told the Hebrew-language Israeli newspaper Maariv that they are assessing US plans to carry out the assault.

The officials claimed that the Trump administration has been holding non-stop discussions involving senior military commanders and advisers to President Donald Trump since Friday, the Jerusalem Post reported.

The plan would be for the US to launch an aerial bombardment of an Iranian facility linked to its nuclear program, the officials claims, according to the Post. One Western diplomat reportedly said the bombing will be “massive” but “limited to a specific target.”

The decision to take military action was apparently made before reports emerged that Iran was planning to increase its levels of uranium enrichment in response to heightening tensions with Washington.

The sources said Trump was not enthusiastic about a strike but had lost his patience and succumbed to influence from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who has been pushing for military action.

Pompeo is due to visit US Central Command at the MacDill Air Force Base, in Tampa, Florida, on Tuesday to discuss “regional security concerns and ongoing operations​​​.”

He has repeatedly claimed that Iran is responsible for the attacks on the oil tankers, but has not provided convincing evidence.

German foreign minister Heiko Maas said last week that grainy video offered as evidence by the US was “not enough” to prove Iranian culpability – and the US version of events was challenged by the owner of the Japanese company that owns one of the tankers damaged in the attack.

The US claims of Iranian guilt for the tanker attacks were compared to the fake evidence of WMDs presented by former US Secretary of State Colin Powell before the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

That history should serve as a cautionary tale against rushing into war again, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitri Peskov said on Sunday.

“We didn’t forget the vials with white powder. We remember and, therefore, have learnt to show restraint in our assessments,” Peskov said.

  1. Yet the USSR public is completely silent. How disgusting is that, with the cattle starting to buzz only after another false flag will be executed, and only because of their paycheck reduction!

    As strange as it seems, Israelis aren’t doing anything wrong here. Why should they care for someone else, especially that the nation doesn’t give a damn of it’s direction (not including a tiny proportion of conscious)?

    The brainless cattle deserve what is coming. Ridiculous, but Israel is correct because it cares of the future, whereas the American goyim (I’m not talking of the conscious, righteous people aware of the happening and not apathetic in action) is a disgust to the history of this country, only worrying about entertainment.

    The is no excuse to be oblivious in our time, and indeed some things are predestined to be. Only a cattle cannot see through the smokescreen of lies with such an abundance of information. The injustice is on those who will have to suffer and adjust thanks to the goyim, and this word is the most accurate term for their disgust.

  2. There Will Be Not Tactical Assault On An Iranian Infrastructure

    They may be blood thirsty, the may be money hungry, they may be stupid, and they may be evil. But even evil is afraid of somethings, specially the light. And the light in the case that America is afraid of is, are the consequences. As a pre-introduction to my thesis, read this first, Why America, Britain and France Will Not Attack Iran.

    Now think about the following points.

    Firstly, America has shown its operatus modi many times before, by picking on little states that are easy to defeat, don’t over bite on something big otherwise, you could show how really pathetic the US military, and its technology really is.

    Secondly, the mid-term elections in the US are just a little over a year away. Trumps economy is starting to look very shaky. Business is down in weapons sales, countries like Turkey aren’t buying into the decrepit US weapons systems anymore. Just take a look at Lockheed Martins stock price
    Lockheed Martin Stock Chart, make sure you click on 5 years history
    . You see how Lockheed’s stock has done thing over Trump’s tenure in the Whitehouse. That is the real reason for all this bluster. Look how Lockheed’s stock price was continuously going up before, now its dead. All those poor investors are making zero capital gain on their investment portfolios.

    Thirdly, Venezuela was a bust. Syria is beginning to unravel, read the update New offensive In Syria to beginning, American backed Islamic Head Choppers are losing territory, American running out of time to steal the remaining oil wealth of Syria (Expand map at Idlib province, you will see what has been bothering the US recently, Syria is now starting to make in roads to pro-American Islamic Head Chopper Territory) .

    Fourthly, AND THE MOST WORRYINGLY FOR THE AMERICANS, take a good close look at the photo here, do you see him, the real fly in the ointment for the Americans, he’s there on the bottom row, second from the left, the NEW member of the Belt and Road Initiative. You know who he is? That’s right, the Supreme Leader of Iran. THAT’S WHAT THE AMERICANS ARE REALLY PANICKING ABOUT!

    Between Lockheed Martin and its stagnant stock price, and now Iran working with the Chinese (something that was unthinkable not too long ago), you are starting to the picture, why you see these rushed, incompetent attempts to sabre rattling.

    NOTHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN. ITS ALL BLUSTER.

    TO AMERICA: SO LONG AND THANKS FOR ALL THE FISH!
    (reference to Douglas Adams’, Hitchhikers’s Guide To The Galaxy, if you read the book you’d understand the “crazy” message here!)

  3. The Great American Freak Show

    The US Industrial Bullshit Complex always refers to real leaders as “brutal dictators”.

    Rouhani and Iran should DICTATE to the biggest terrorist organization in the world and order them to go away and shut up!!

    That should give the yapping hyenas in the zewish media something to scream about for a few weeks…or at least until the next false flag grabs the the headlies of Fakestream media…

    I hope Iran gets equipped with Russian S-500 air defense systems as well as the latest electronic warfare systems and then gives the US terrorists 2 weeks to get the fuck out of the Persian Gulf or their sitting duck carriers will be blown to hell along with all the other US weapons of mass destruction in the vicinity!

    If Trumpenstein must bomb somebody, he should consider the REAL enemy of the American people: ISRAHELL and their insufferable supporters!

    The law that says we must bomb countries that are governed by brutal dictators and their evil regimes calls for the bombing of israhell. israhell gets away with mass murder and crimes of all kinds on a scale that makes Saddam, Assad and Gadhafi look like Gandhi, Mother Theresa and Saint John the apostle.

    The War on Brutal Dictators also calls for the destruction of the US regime along with the many brutal dictators in the Citi of London and the Vatican.

    There is no use in negotiating anything with the US government since they are untrustworthy terrorists and mercenaries.

    The useless International Criminal Court should have long ago dragged out and wrestled to the ground these stinking sacks of rotting garbage in the “government” of `the United Snakes of Moronica.

    This outrageously absurd lying machine is continuously spreading diseases that the doctors haven’t even identified yet…since most doctors are infected by those same diseases: Hemorrhagic Stupiditas, Sadistic Fibrosis and the Disease of Conceit.

    Those diseases, Hemorrhagic Stupiditas, Sadistic Fibrosis and the Disease of Conceit, have been ravaging the likes of John “I am the walrus” Boltoff, Mike Pompedo, Trumpenstein, Clitory, Obomba, Pedosta, Lindsay Gayham and the rest of those twisted father fuckers in The Great American Freak Show.

    Fake leaders everywhere! They are called “leaders” by fake news who hate the truth and the truth tellers. Having Nothing would be better than having all these fake “leaders”.
