Why Are We Attacking Syrians Who Are Fighting ISIS? – Collective Evolution

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 19, 2017

What is this really all about? Why does the US military occupy this base inside Syria? It’s partly about preventing the Syrians and Iraqis from working together to fight ISIS, but I think it’s mostly about Iran. If the Syrians and Iraqis join up to fight ISIS with the help of Iranian-allied Shia militia, the US believes it will strengthen Iran’s hand in the region. President Trump has recently returned from a trip to Saudi Arabia where he swore he would not allow that to happen.

But is this policy really in our interest, or are we just doing the bidding of our Middle East “allies,” who seem desperate for war with Iran? Saudi Arabia exports its radical form of Islam worldwide, including recently into moderate Asian Muslim countries like Indonesia. Iran does not.

The US supports ISIS, Syria doesn’t. 

ISIS fights Iraq, Iran and others that never attacked the US. The US supports ISIS, Saudi Arabia, Al Qaeda and Israel who have all attacked the US.

The foreign policy your taxes enable.

 It makes sense in Washington.

Sorry, did I say Russia?  I meant the CIA.

The U.S. has a long history of attempting to influence presidential elections in other countries – it’s done so as many as 81 times between 1946 and 2000, according to a database amassed by political scientist Dov Levin of Carnegie Mellon University. Read the rest of this entry »

1983 CIA Doc Reveals Plot – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 12, 2017

Prophetically foreshadowing the current crisis (and apparent action plan), leaked CIA documents from the reign of Bashar al-Assad’s father in the 1980s show a Washington Deep State plan coalescing to “bring real muscle to bear against Syria,” toppling its leader (in favor of one amenable to US demands) , severing ties with Russia (its primary arms dealer), and paving the way for an oil and gas pipeline of Washington’s choosing.
Same old story…Oil. Same old partner…Saudi Arabia money men for Washington, oil companies and the 9/11 hijackers.

Global Leaders Rattle Their Sabers As The World Marches Toward War

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 16, 2017

And the U.S. military has recently made several other moves in the region that have angered the Chinese

Also in February, the U.S. sent a dozen F-22 Raptor stealth fighters to Tindal AB in northern Australia, the closest Australian military airbase to China, for coalition training and exercises. It’s the first deployment of that many F-22s in the Pacific.

And if that didn’t get the attention of the Chinese government, the U.S. just tested four Trident II submarine-launched ballistic missiles during a nuclear war exercise, sending the simulated weapons 4,200 miles from the coast of California into the mid-Pacific. It’s the first time in three years the U.S. has conducted tests in the Pacific, and the first four-missile salvo since the end of the Cold War.

I can understand the need to look tough, but eventually, somebody is going to go too far.

It won’t be long before the government gets the war it wants.

Be prepared, stock up with food and ammo and stay aware from target areas. Consider yourself lucky if you do not live near big cities, defense industry locations, major travel intersections and corridors.

Posted in Uncategorized | Tagged: , , , | Leave a Comment » Original » The Five Blinding Myths About Iran » Print

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 12, 2017

Myth Three: Iran is a Destabilizing Force in the Middle East and is the World’s Leading State Sponsor of Terrorism

The day after the US imposed the new sanctions on Iran, General Mattis declaredthat “As far as Iran goes, this is the single biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the world.” CIA director Mike Pompeo has similarly called Iran “the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism.” And Trump, himself, told Bill O’Reilly that Iran is “the number one terrorist state.”

There is no support for this claim.

Recent attempts to link Iran to terrorism have all been revealed as perjuries

The biggest myth. The leading Middle East sponsors of terrorism are 1. Our friend Saudi Arabia 2. Our friend Israel 3. Our friend Turkey. They support Al Qaeda directly and ISIS particularly in overthrowing Syria and in the case of Turkey using Al Qaeda to kill Kurds. 

The biggest non ME sponsor of terrorism has to send troops to the other side of the planet to kill anything that moves in order to bring peace. It blows up wedding parties,  funeral processions and helps Saudis destroy the poorest country in the ME in order to win hearts and minds.

US Navy Shocked to Find Persian Ships in Persian Gulf

It’s those crazy Iranians again.  They probably think the US will do something wild like overthrow their government and install a brutal dictator.

PROOF that Russia and Iran Want War!

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 9, 2017

Look how close…

Iran-backed Houthi rebels, said Flynn, attacked a Saudi warship and Tehran tested a missile, undermining “security, prosperity, and stability throughout the Middle East,” placing “American lives at risk.”

But how so?

The Saudis have been bombing the Houthi rebels and ravaging their country, Yemen, for two years. Are the Saudis entitled to immunity from retaliation in wars that they start?

Where is the evidence Iran had a role in the Red Sea attack on the Saudi ship? And why would President Trump make this war his war?

As for the Iranian missile test, a 2015 U.N. resolution “called upon” Iran not to test nuclear-capable missiles. It did not forbid Iran from testing conventional missiles, which Tehran insists this was.

Looks like trump is hesitant to buck the war party and its lap dog lying media.  Michael Flynn does not look to be the smartest choice for “security”.

Trump is grasping defeat from the jaws of victory.

“Putting Iran on Notice”—Stop Acting Like A Sovereign Country?

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 3, 2017

Ignoring the legal nuances, much of the commentary in the United States about Iran’s activity is both belligerent and inaccurate. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-TN) calls the latest missile test a “violation” of the UN Security Council resolution. House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (D-MD) stated that the Iranian test “ought to be a reminder …that [Iran] continues to flout international laws…” U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley says the world should be “alarmed” by the test. Former ambassador Mark D. Wallace, head of United Against a Nuclear Iran, labels the test “an unacceptable act of aggression.”

More government lies. Much ado about the wrong things.

U.S. says Navy ship fired warning shots at Iranian vessels

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 9, 2017

I could understand this if the US Navy was firing on Iranian ships in the Caribbean.
