On The Brink Of War?

It's hard to imagine this situation escalating any further before we see warfare break out in the Middle East:

"U.S. Prepping Mideast Facilities For Israeli Attack On Iran"

The United States has begun taking measures to plan for an Israeli strike on Iran in order to protect US facilities in the region, the Wall Street Journal reported Saturday.

The contingency planning came as a result of concern within the US defense establishment that Israel is planning to attack Iran over the Islamic Republic's reported nuclear armament program, according to the newspaper.

US President Barack Obama, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, and other senior US officials have reportedly delivered messages through private channels to the Israeli government warning them about the dangerous repercussions of a military strike on Iran.

Washington is concerned that Iraqi Shi'ite militias may attack the US embassy in Baghdad at Iran's behest. Some 15,000 US diplomats, federal employees and contractors will likely remain in Iraq, the newspaper reported.

Tensions between the Jewish state and the Islamic republic spiked above normal this past week when an Iranian nuclear scientist was blown up in his car in Tehran in an attack that Iranian officials blamed on Israel.

U.S. Warns Israel On Strike

U.S. defense leaders are increasingly concerned that Israel is preparing to take military action against Iran, over U.S. objections, and have stepped up contingency planning to safeguard U.S. facilities in the region in case of a conflict.

President Barack Obama, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and other top officials have delivered a string of private messages to Israeli leaders warning about the dire consequences of a strike. The U.S. wants Israel to give more time for the effects of sanctions and other measures intended to force Iran to abandon its perceived efforts to build nuclear weapons.

The high-stakes planning and diplomacy comes as U.S. officials warn Tehran, including through what administration officials described Friday as direct messages to Iran's leaders, against provocative actions.

But Israel has declined to rule out a strike, as has the U.S.

The U.S. military is preparing for a number of possible responses to an Israeli strike, including assaults by pro-Iranian Shiite militias in Iraq against the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, according to U.S. officials.

In large measure to deter Iran, the U.S. has 15,000 troops in Kuwait, and has moved a second aircraft carrier strike group to the Persian Gulf area.

It has also been pre-positioning aircraft and other military equipment, officials say. Arms transfers to key allies in the Gulf, including the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, have been fast-tracked as a further deterrent, officials say.

"CIA, M16 Operations Helped Kill Iranian Nuclear Scientist"

Iran protested the United States and United Kingdom for their roles in the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan Wednesday, implicating the two nations in the attack, the official Iranian Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported Saturday.

Iran sent a letter to the Swiss embassy in Tehran - the only official diplomatic channel between Iran and the United States in Tehran - saying that CIA-led operations in the Islamic Republic are known, and blaming the US for supporting "terrorist groups against Iran."

The Islamic Republic has blamed the violent death of Roshan on the CIA, Israel and now MI6. US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton summarily denied the charges

Roshan is the fourth Iranian scientist to be killed since 2007.

IDF Chief of General Staff Benny Gantz said Tuesday that 2012 would be a critical year regarding Iran and that there may be more "unnatural" events that happen to them.

"2012 will be a critical year in the connection between Iran gaining nuclear power, changes in leadership, continuing pressure from the international community and events that happen unnaturally," he said.

U.S. Acts To Hold Israel Back From Striking Iran. Their Intel Agencies At Odds

...the differences between the US and Israel surfaced before the tough Obama-Netanyahu conversation last Thursday. Political, military and intelligence officials privately voiced resentment over the strong and unusual condemnation the White House and Secretary Clinton issued over the death of the Iranian nuclear scientist.

By denying "absolutely" any US involvement in the killing, the administration implicitly pointed the finger at Israel – an unusual act in relations between two friendly governments, especially when both face a common issue as sensitive as a nuclear-armed Iran.

Obama seemed to suspect that Israel staged the killing to torpedo yet another US secret effort to avoid a military confrontation with Iran through back channel contacts with Tehran, while the administration's extreme condemnation is seen as tying in with its all-out campaign to hold Israel back from a unilateral strike.

Foreign Policy in its tendentious and selective report presents Mossad as the sole recruiter of Jundallah for sabotage and hit operations for defeating Iran's drive for a nuclear bomb. It omits the slightest mention of the fact that US intelligence started using Jundallah for such operations from early 2005 with ample US-dollar funding approved personally by President Bush.

Washington and intelligence sources note that the report appeared two days after the Iranian nuclear scientist was killed and the day after Obama took Netanyahu to task. It had two objective: to show that US is not responsible for all the covert operations of recent months against Iran's nuclear targets and, secondly, to demonstrate that Washington means to continue harassing and pressuring Israel by every means to hold it back from a military operation against Iran.

Canadian Official Rips Soros Over Oil

Their goal is to stop any major project no matter what the cost to Canadian families in lost jobs and economic growth. No forestry. No mining. No oil. No gas. No more hydro-electric dams.

These groups threaten to hijack our regulatory system to achieve their radical ideological agenda. They seek to exploit any loophole they can find, stacking public hearings with bodies to ensure that delays kill good projects. They use funding from foreign special interest groups to undermine Canada’s national economic interest. They attract jet-setting celebrities with some of the largest personal carbon footprints in the world to lecture Canadians not to develop our

Oliver appeared on CBC’s The National on January 9, listing American philanthropist George Soros as one of the “billionaire socialists” funding the environmental groups’ “radical ideological agenda”.

“They have an agenda, and it seems to be ideologically driven. And it’s financed, without exaggeration, by billionaire socialists from the United States – people like George Soros,” said Oliver in one CBC interview.

Just Wow!

So now, for the first time, that I know of, Soros is getting publicly named and called out for his actions.

Doubt if it will make any difference and suspect there will be unlimited money backing the removal of Canadian Resources Minister Joe Oliver in the very near future if he continues telling the truth.

Ain't it funny how so many, in the name of whatever, just fall in line and support their own indirect suicide.

Scott said...

Thats a good point - Soros name is getting out into the public arena now for the first time. It could be by intent - interesting either way

I don't follow Canadian politics as closely as I should be, I guess . . .so I don't really know what's causing Canada to be taking the RIGHT side of nearly every issue coming down the pike in the last couple of years or so . . .but I AM glad they're calling out Soros as they are.

I have several Canadians on my Facebook page who post stories about the NWO or FEMA Camps, etc that get my attention. Sadly, none of them believe these are end of times signs. In fact, debates typically end in shouting matches LOL

Killing the nuclear scientists in Iran seems like a pretty solid strategy to me. This real life James Bond stuff is pretty intriging.

May I suggest that their leadership is Christian, apparently not just in word and title only...but really Spirit filled. When that happens, the blinders seem to be left behind and clarity and courage/conviction to speak is given.

That's my guess.

Have a nice day (thanks to for the link).

Hi Anon, :)
Interesting all these plots and plans against Israel. Try as they might, plots and plans against Israel ESPECIALLY for land, are futile. It is GODS LAND, for HIS people. :)
Interesting links you provided, the same odd one from just the other day. Posted by an apparent new person “theyenguy” that was apparently promoting his writings. Who knows :) BTW, you don’t have to thank RR for a commonly used site as Israel National News. :)
God Bless:)

Hi Brother Scott, :)
Wow, the JP headlines this morning were a poppin! This one in particular, just had the WOW factor in the title of article alone!


Wow, just right out of Scripture!

God Bless You Brother! :)

Scott said...

Thats a great article, Mrs C - I may post that. And its entirely consistent with the other articles we have been seeing.

Dylan said...

Caver, whether or not Stephen Harper is Christian, I havent heard of him making any claims of being Christian. But it is odd that Canada seems to be making good decisions.

Caver said...

Hi Dylan,

Good to see you again.

I could be very wrong but I had thought that he had made that clear before. Not that I'm an expert on Canadian affairs but me wiff, Mrs C, is Canadian.

Now that you mentioned it, I just asked her about it and it does appear it was something we had assumed, based on some of the things he's said and the many decisions he's made.

So, I stand corrected. Thank you.:TipHat

Mrs.C said...

Hi Brother Scott, :)
Yes indeed, isnt that article something! I still cant get over that headline! Heres another one from the JP today. I tell ya, the folks at Time should be tried for treason with all the stuff they've leaked out that harms this great nation. Truly, they hate this country :( This article otta get Israel’s enemies even more riled up...once again...

"Western intelligence: Israel behind Iran bombs"
" "TIME" cites intelligence sources claiming Mossad responsible for car-bomb assassinations, explosion at missile facility."

God Bless You Brother!

Stephen Harper is a member of the denomination I attend, the Christian and Missionary Alliance and I have heard he is indeed saved.

Doesn't the whole Iran issue seem like a race against time ? You know The Obama administration is continually telling Israel to hold off (due to elections and the "timely" withdraw of troops from Iraq . )Yet at the same time the popular consensus seems to be that Iran will have nuclear capabilities at the exact same moment the elections will be ending ? Also the Eurocrises has been prolonged/ can kicked due to the bailouts from the ECB and the Federal Reserve pumping more money (silently under the table) . Freeing up our broke European ally to be able to form coalitions forces . Also we have the Palestinian /Israel "peace treaty" supposedly happening during the height of the elections . Not to mention French elections , etc etc ... I don't think anything will happen until we get near November . Iran will definentaly do nothing substantial until they have the bomb (it would be suicide) along with closing the Straight . That would alienate China their number one consumer (and possibly make them change sides) . Its going to be interesting ...The problem is if we force Israel to stand down (it might be to late) ...

Hi Brother Nathan, :)
On the idea of Iran's concern about "suicide" they dont care, that is the foundation of their beliefs! They are of death, and the more of death, the more gleeful they are. They believe they are ordained by "allah" to bring in their well-dweller, but know that the well-dweller will come only if there is wide spread war in the world. So, they want to create the war to summons their well-dweller...death means nothing to them. These are the same folks that had thousands of their native children march across mine fields towards the enemy (Iraq), clearing the way with their bodies.
Ayatollah Khomeini imported 500k small plastic keys from Taiwan. Before every mission, one of the keys would be hung around each child’s neck. It was supposed to open the gates to paradise for them. Imanutjobinadinnerjacket participated in this horrendous procedure with the children. That is who these abominations are that are in charge of Iran…

God Bless!
