The US and its allies are discussing a worst-case scenario that could require up to 60,000 ground troops to go into Syria to secure chemical and biological weapons sites following the fall of the Assad government, an unnamed American source said Thursday night, Aug.16.
This scenario postulates the disintegration of his security forces, he said, leaving chemical and biological weapons sites vulnerable to pillaging. It assumes the sites could not be destroyed by aerial bombings in view of health and environmental hazards.The American special forces deployed on the Jordanian-Syrian border and in bases in Israel and Turkey clearly perceive a chemical-biological weapon threat.Military and medical preparations are being quietly put in place. Reconnaissance teams from potentially targeted countries have infiltrated Syria. They are on the lookout for any chemical missiles being moved into firing positions, although it is taken into account that Assad may be shifting decoys and that not all the real launchings can be stopped.The Syrian ruler may also decide to transfer chemical explosives to Hizballah in Lebanon. Israel is on record as warning it would prevent this.Medical preparations are also in place. The US and France are flying special military hospital facilities trained in the treatment of chemical weapon injuries to Turkey and Jordan.
Israeli hospitals are on war alert and have begun opening fortified emergency wards and making them ready for patients.Tuesday, Aug. 14, IDF Home Front Command units embarked on a series of chemical attack drills in the towns of the northern district down to Afula, which is 52 kilometers east of Haifa and 110 kilometers north of Tel Aviv.Iran’s National Security Adviser Saeed Jalili visited Damascus Aug. 6-7 to ascertain that Syria would strike Israel and US military targets in the region with all its might if they attacked Iran.
Assad was ready to offer this pledge, but demanded in return that Tehran guarantee to exercise all its military capabilities to save him from any military or covert attempts to end his rule - whenever it was requested.
Jalili promised him that guarantee. He also held a similar conversation with HIzballah’s Hassan Nasrallah in Beirut.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad referred to Israel as a western "tool to dominate the Middle East" and an "insult to all humanity," in a speech given at a Tehran rally marking the annual Al-Quds (Jerusalem) Day, according to Iran's IRNA news agency.
Protesters held massive rallies in cities across Iran on Friday, marking Al-Quds Day, an anti-Zionist event which calls for the liberation of Palestine.Demonstrators waved Palestinian flags and held signs bearing slogans such as "Down with the US" and "Death to Israel" at Friday's rallies.
Iran has warned Saudi Arabia and Qatar that if either country allows Israel to use its airspace, Tehran may retaliate directly against those Gulf nations, according to informed Arab government officials speaking to WND.
One official said that in talks with Gulf nations, Iran “hinted” that a couple of Iranian missiles “may lose their way” and strike Qatar, Saudi Arabia or any other Gulf nation that allows Israel to use its airspace in any attack against Iran’s nuclear infrastructure.
Waving Palestinian flags and chanting “Death to Israel”, Iranians participated in the annual show of solidarity with the Palestinians protesting Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem, whose Arabic name is al-Quds. Iranian state television showed footage of Iranians burning Israeli and American flags.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinegad used the event to call for the elimination of the “Insult to all humanity,” that is Israel and that confronting it is an effort to “protect the dignity of all human beings,” according to Army Radio.
Ahmadinejad reportedly went on to say that the very existence of the state of Israel is a crime against humanity, that “the Zionist regime is a tool to dominate the Middle East and that the world powers are “thirsty for Iranian blood.”
An Iranian general declared that Syria “is the red line of the resistance movement against the Zionist regime,” according to Iranian reports.
Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri, of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, linked Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s violent crackdown on opposition forces to what he said is a larger war against Western forces, including Israel, the Mehr News Agency reported.Syria should be “regarded as the red line of the resistance,” Jazayeri told Mehr in an interview in which he claimed that “Western” forces were behind the “terrorist” attacks against Assad’s government.Iranian officials have supported Assad’s regime as it violently cracks down on rebel forces, even as other Arab governments back away from Assad.
As I noted in that article, more than 600 banking executiveshave resigned from their positions over the past 12 months, and I have been personally told that a substantial number of Wall Street bankers have been shopping for "prepper properties" this summer. But now even more evidence has emerged that quiet preparations are being made for an imminent financial collapse. That doesn't guarantee that something will happen or won't happen. Like any good detective, we are gathering clues and trying to figure out what the evidence is telling us.If you want to figure out what is going to happen next in the financial markets, carefully watch what the insiders are doing. Those that are "connected" have access to far better sources of information than the rest of us have, and if they hear that something big is coming up they will often make very significant moves with their money in anticipation of what is about to happen.
Back in March, Homeland Security purchased 450 million rounds of .40-caliber hollow point bullets that are designed to expand upon entry and cause maximum organ damage, prompting questions as to why the DHS needed such a large amount of powerful bullets merely for training purposes.
This was followed by another DHS solicitation asking for a further 750 million rounds of assorted bullets, including 357 mag rounds that are able to penetrate walls.
Now why in the world would the government need over a billion rounds of ammunition?
If it was the U.S. military I could understand this. You can burn through a whole lot of ammunition fighting wars.
But this makes no sense - unless they believe that big trouble is coming.
Personally, I wouldn't blame them for getting prepared. Our economycontinues to fall apart and there are signs of social decayeverywhere around us.
The American people are more frustrated and more angry than at any other time in modern history. This upcoming election is only going to cause Americans to become even more angry and even more divided.
All it would take is just the right "spark" to cause this country to erupt.
It could be the upcoming election.
It could be the collapse of the financial system.
Or it might be something else.
But the conditions are definitely there for it to happen.
If you are an outspoken Christian in America, you need to be concerned. If you are an outspoken Christian in America who happens to be a gun owner, you need to be very concerned. And if you are a Christian gun owner who disagrees with the Progressive anti-Christian agenda in America andhave a platform to inform others, you better believe that you are under intense scrutiny. Sound like paranoid propaganda? Read on.
Scott you are indeed a blessing to us brother!!! My favorite part of this blog the more I read it are the commentary from the other watchmen who comment. As a former Marine part of our training is in NBC warfare Nuclear Bio Chemical warfare tactics....As a brother in Christ and a former Marine, I'm telling ya that NBC or chemical warfare is a horrifying way to perish. The threat of chemical weopons is a threat in the extreme sense.The idea that troops may have to go in to secure the chemical weopons is very serious in a bigtime sorta way!!! Lift Up Your Heads Dear Brothers and Sisters I believe that we are on the threshold of (1Corinthians15:51 and following) I do not believe Our Lord will be checking with the dow before that trumpet blows, BlessYa Stephen!!!
My, my, my! Just wow at the pace of the pains and rumors.
Tom Clancy can't do with unlimited imagination, word processor, and world wide stage what the Lord does with real life and predetermined players.
Just amazing.....but a reality check has lots of prayer for the multitude of real human beings that are subject to the whims of the privileged few calling the shots here.
Lets just keep Israel in our prayers. Much real "inside" information from the actual lands/people in question over there. They need our prayer so badly.
Caver, I agree with you.Israel definitely needs our prayers at this time.
Scott, you might want to look at this article
it's nothiñg new in terms of people threatening Israel, but if you go to the third last paragraph it seems that nasrallah is suggesting that while the world is focussed on Iran that the Arab nations go into Syria and get ahold of the chemical weapons.
Stocks are UP again.....not much to
say. I think that Mr. Soros will
BE VERY SORRY with his gold bet.
EWI has gold COLLAPSING in the end
with the rest of it...and I agree.
IN DEFLATION, they ALL go down.
believe it !!!!
TOO MANY GOLD BULLS NOW
TOO MANY STOCK BULLS NOW
you know what that means.
Violatility measures are VERY LOW
now....ie...vix, vxd, ect.
THERE IS NO FEAR NOW in these markets.
that is VERY DANGEROUS.
Bulls may be in control, but I am
watching for the FIRST SIGN of selling. ANY down day of 100 or more in the dow SHOULD start the panic.
SEP and OCT are right around the corner, have not had a CRASH in
those two months in 4 years !!!!
very disturbing though is the RAMPANT BULLING being displayed
by stupid bulls all week long.
'Many thanks brother - as a marine you certainly have my respect :) - I also agree that we're ever so close to the promises of 1 Cor 15 and 1 Thess 4 ---> absolutely..Not only are we are the very end of the generation, and not only are we nearing the Tribulation, but I believe the epic battles expected in the Middle East are just on the threshold, which brings everything else closer as well. Maranatha!
Stephen, would this indicate that they are trying to build it up in order to crash it so bad it would be worse that the great depression? Or are they doing this to gain huge dividends first, THEN crash it? Just trying feebly to understand.
John, now I know why I CLING to Psalm 91!
Thanks for that link - headed there now :)
Thanks for the recommended videos-- I watched all 9 parts!
I really appreciate your passion ! I too am praying for many lost in my hula hoop! I really understood that so much better. God Bless
Dear Israeli >>>>>>
I know I have been bullish, but I think the facade is a lie. I just
got info that the top 1 percent of
Americans in wealth have 56 % of their money in CASH, not gold, not
silver, no STOCKS, just cash.
This market is deceptive and full
It must be that way to "fool the masses" at the worst possible time.
If we could all play stocks AND make money, there would be no need
for people to work right ??
BUT the game is not like that.
Most that play stocks LOSE. not win.
and right now bulls are playing with fire. they are making it look
REALLY GOOD to suck in the suckers,
they do NOT fool me, I have been
playing the game a long time...
LOW vix numbers down near zero
mean ONLY one thing.....
CRASH COMING >>>>>>>>>>>
Very very good points Steohen
