Clausewitz, Trump and Soleimani

Gilad Atzmon – Jan 8, 2020

American politics is a continuation of Israel’s wars by different means

The 19th century military philosopher Carl von Clausewitz observed that war is the continuation of politics by different means. This is an apt description of Iranian military strategy and geo-political affairs. It is consistent with the rationale that guided General Qasem Soleimani for the last two decades.
As a superb military strategist Soleimani grasped that the distance between A to B isn’t necessarily identical to the distance from B to A. Iran and Israel do not share a physical border, Tehran and Tel Aviv are about 1000 miles apart. Despite Israel’s relentless threats to attack Iran, it has never been clear whether Israel has the military capacity to cause significant damage to Iran. It isn’t clear how Israeli pilots are supposed to cover the distance and fly undetected over Jordan, Syria or Iraq. Where, or how would the Israeli plane refuel and so on.  Israel has not managed to solve this logistical military riddle. But it has been clever enough to grasp that pushing America into an all out conflict with the Islamic Republic may provide a solution to the riddle. Despite the competition (with Britain, France and Germany), the USA is Israel’s most subservient colony. It has been happily sacrificing its sons and daughters on the Zionist altar for years.
General Soleimani devised genius military tactics to counter both American and Israeli plans; although Israel doesn’t share a border with Iran, Iran assuredly shares a border with Israel. Deploying the Iranian Revolutionary Guards alongside local pro Iran militias into areas of conflict allowed Soleimani to encircle the Jewish state within a wall of fierce resistance. Iran’s regional allies are superbly trained, ideologically and religiously motivated and they have the benefit of the rich Iranian ballistic arsenal and technology that can deliver lethal punishment to Israel in a conflict. For some time, Israel’s military elite and analysts  have had to accept that within the context of such an Israel Iran war, Iran together with its regional allies, is capable of raining thousands of ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and precision guided missiles on Israel. Such a development could wipe out Israeli cities in a few days.
Similar tactics were put into action by General Soleimani against American military forces in the region. Iran may not share a border with the USA but pro Iranian Iraqi militias have managed to surround and harass American forces in Iraq. Iran also dominates the most strategic passes in the Persian Gulf through its Shia militias in Yemen.
Yesterday’s Iranian attack on American air bases, showed that Iran’s supreme leaders have also internalised Clausewitz’s philosophy. The attack was measured. It was aimed at American military facilities and, according to reports, targeted runways and empty facilities. However, the attack was conducted from Iranian territory and was openly claimed by the Iranian regime. It effectively conveyed Iranian determination and firmness. However, it was measured enough to give Trump’s Administration an opportunity to climb down off the tree it unwisely chose although it also gave the administration enough rope to hang itself if it insists on doing so.
The USA’s  conflict with Iran is peculiar; it is irrational, it may even border on madness. America is no longer dependent on the Gulf’s oil. Its general strategy in the region has been futile and self-defeating. Iraq wants the American military out. In Syria, American forces were defeated. Russia is now taking care of what in the past America claimed to oversee and, in practice, never did. One wonders, what is it that America is doing in Iraq, or in Syria? Where is all of this leading?
Numerous academic studies have established that American foreign policy is dominated by the Israel Lobby. The devastating truth is that America has been fighting Israel’s wars for decades. Until now this has entailed fighting inferior military forces. But a battle with Iran may prove far more complicated. Decades of sanctions have made Iran into an independent technological superpower. Iranian drone technology is at least as advanced as that of Israel and the USA and it leads in precision guided and cruise missiles. Unlike American soldiers who fight for Israel and are often fed misleading intelligence by Israeli sources,  Iranians and local Shia militias are fighting on their soil. The battle is destined to be a challenge to the USA military and its consequences are unpredictable.
Surrounded by incompetence, Trump has made disastrous decisions that have made America and Israel into the biggest dangers to world peace. The situation is so grim for America that it can’t seem to  find the power within itself to grasp its own self-imposed dark limbo.
The only way to grasp America’s bizarre operation is to accept a reverse approach to Clausewitz’ insight; American politics is a continuation of Zionist wars by different means. America has given away its world prestige for the Jewish state. American politicians shamelessly pledge allegiance to the Jewish state instead of their own. They go out of their way to appease Jewish lobby groups, whether it is the ultra Zionist AIPAC or the controlled opposition Jstreet. The USA won’t be the first superpower to be destroyed by Zion. The problem is that a regional war involving America and Israel could make Extinction Rebellion irrelevant as these two destructive powers could reduce our planet to dust in order to save their current leaders from their escalating legal complications.
I have no doubt that many Americans are aware of the danger ahead. However, the matrix of Zionist power in America has dismantled Americans’ ability to call a spade a spade as that is considered ‘anti-Semitic.’
My battle for truth and freedom involves  some expensive legal services. I hope that you will consider committing to a monthly donation in whatever amount you can give. Regular contributions will enable me to avoid being pushed against a wall and to stay on top of the endless harassment by Zionist operators attempting to silence me.

  1. Iran has centuries of maturity and diplomacy.
    N Korea has offered them nukes many times
    but iran is very wise, they know that in a nuclear exchange there is no winners
    israel set the stuxnet virus on iran
    but it went rogue and destroyed japan
    any mention of reparations, receives the reply
    that israel would go to war and set the americans
    on japan a second time.

  2. very interesting, i just stumbled onto this beauty which fits with Gilads

  3. The Ziocon Masonic CIA overseen MSM want to put their idiotic and treacherous assassination of Soleimani and others quickly behind them. We know why but it takes a Zio-free US comedian, like Lee Camp, to put things in perspective.

    Soleimani was Iran’s most beloved and top commander and together with top Iranian and top Iraqi military commanders on their way to peace talks with Saudi Arabian representatives, under diplomatic immunity, when they were deliberately targeted and killed by the US drone missile. The Israelis and Americans were advised of the trip and its purpose in advance. This is one more reason why the rest of the world can no longer trust anything the US does or says. It is a nation whose entire government and capital is structured on pragmatic Masonic principles to advance their own interests using any means they deem fit. Everything the US capital is and does reeks of Masonic rites, secrecrecy, deception and intrigue, and for the past 100 years that duplicitous network has been easily commandeered by the Zionists, using international resources, and making a really good fit, because both outfits use the same kind of ruthless and treacherous methods.

  4. I’m going to tell you all what is going to happen next based on logic and end times imagined prophecy be damned. Most people have their end of world scenarios based on the insane ultra right christian book sellers like timothy lahaye and jenkins (Left Behind) plus lets not forget Hal Lindsey (Late Great Planet Earth). They are wrong.

    The Great Satan Amerika is going to leave Iraq and Afghanistan just as it left Vietnam. The murder of Soleimani will accelerate the fall of the Green Zone just like the Fall of Saigon. Goodbye Yankees, we Iraqis want you the hell out – and they have voted thus because the Zionist stooge Trump made a strategic blunder as he has united the Muzzies.

    You will see the line going up to the final helicopter on top of some Green Zone rooftop soon.

    Oh yeah the murdering cowards are going to be forced out – you wait and see and it will probably be coincident with market turmoil, gold spiking, inflation and such. Trump WILL be impeached if the market crashes and mass mood goes against the ruling family of billionaire brats. In my view the 80 million on Trump’s head is a tempting sum, Trumps family is a plausible historical repeat of Nicholas Czar family as the Bolsheviks sharpen their knives in the Congress.

    I see the intense level of hate against Trump in my town – cars honking and people cheering the anti-Trump sign holders and demonstrators. The hate and disgust is building – and the stock market is making record highs. So what happens when the system crashes and the negative mood sweeps debt enslaved Amerika while Trump’s brats dine in gold lined billionaire luxury?

    So Amerika will be forced out. Turkey wants us gone. Afghanistan wants us gone. Syria wants us gone. Russia wants us gone, Iran wants us to get lost. Yemen hates us. Amerika will be forced to fall back and set up camp in Saudi head chopper Arabia, maybe a new airbase in Israel.

    As the Jew pig state is squeezed from the furious Shias block party in the East, Israel will no doubt ramp up the torture and genocide of remaining Palestinians. Bibi in final acts of desperation launches waves of air attacks on Syria, Iraq, and Iran until they start raining down missiles on Tel Aviv and Haifa targets.

    Israel is going to become a bomb out hell hole like Aleppo. Jews will suffer greatly. Millions will flee back to homeland and Amerika. Amerika is the final fortress of Jews against the world. Israel is not the Jews last stand, it is Amerika. Jews will flee to Amerika – a safe haven for them, a nation where Homeland Security Apparatus was set up to protect Jews.

    Fortified Amerikan Synagogues are the new Jew outposts and Goyim processing centers. Don’t believe the Holocaust, to the Gulag slave.

    Since I am the great heretic of all things Biblical and since I think the Holy Bible is the most dangerous and most evil book ever written, I look forward to the destruction of the holy land – the fail of end times mythology, the fail of myth-man return etc. It is all too possible and probable the Dome of the Rock will come down which will be the final mistake of the Jews – every fighting age Muslim will then converge on Israel.

  5. Hey Jack, your comment is worse than the Armageddon doomsayers. There are different ways to interpret the Bible and most Christians do not do it your way. I thought one of your complaints about Christianity was that the love-your-neighbor (golden rule) business made us pushovers to the might-makes-right parasites who feed off of our soft Christian underbellies. All that principle is intended for was to allow Christians on the individual level to deflate their egos to experience a little of the kingdom of heaven in this life, and on the social level to improve relations between people to stop all the selfishness, cheating, lying, deception, killings and wars, for more trust and co-operation between us. Most people like trusting relations and peace as opposed to the crap we all complain about. Do you have any other remedy?

  6. Endtimes for the OWO… this is the end of our Western led puppet show.. as the puppets out each other…. as for Iran/Persia, the mullahs there have been very friendly with British/American intel going back many decades, so how much of this is the same endtimes OWO script the SG has engineered for the collapse of their old system and introduction to their NWO?
    The clock is ticking as Mother Nature approaches to do her cyclical cleansing, said to start before the end of ’27… This NWO of the current crew needs massive global chaos… so anything that does that is considered ‘success’, like this Iranian ploy, and as for Isreal, ‘smart’ Jews don’t live there, do they? Like in our American ghettos, when you can, you get out. Too many psychos there, even for their own kinfolk… but psychos don’t really have any, do they? But they make perfect ‘tools’ to stir the pot and cause complete chaos… built upon the total perversion of the OWO.

  8. Yukon Jack…..right on the money

  9. @ Yukon Jack & Fred B:

    For all your religious disbelief, you sound like you read the Bible, especially the Books of Daniel, Ezekiel 38/39, and Revelation. You are BANG ON in your predictions except for Jews heading to Amerika. IsraHell is the Corral/Roundup Pen for the JEWS as Satan (AntiChrist) tries to destroy the REAL ones (Jacob’s descendant’s in Palestine), while Jesus comes back to destroy the FAKE JEWS (Khazarian Mafia/AshkeNAZIm) variety and punish the rest of Humanity ( sheep vs. goats) before judgement is given through grace and mercy! As for Fred B, your explanation of the Christian life, is a testament to the hope people like you and I have for ourselves and even the likes of Yukon Jack!

  10. Brendon U Connell is right…all theatre
    demonise the up the real NWO, the East

    Putin, Xi, Netanyahoo & Khomeini all working together

    Chabad Lubavitch got it running like a swiss watch
