The first article - up from Canada Free press is quite revealing and is bolstered by a few similar and related articles today:
It’s easy to downplay or even dismiss the threat by Iranian warships said to be on their way to sail close to U.S. maritime borders if one merely looks at this move as taking place in a geopolitical vacuum.
The problem is that we are not residing in such a vacuum, and the majority of Americans are not understanding the significance of events that have been taking place since the planning phases of the “Arab Spring.” The American public is not getting the truth from the White House or the Western media that appears to be covering for, if not facilitating the Obama agenda.
How is this relevant to Iranian warships reportedly planning to prod the U.S. maritime borders? To understand why this is happening, we’ve got to understand the bigger picture.
The Obama agenda...calls for the toppling of various governments and the installation of an Islamic Caliphate under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood.
As an aside, I might ask whether the selection of Barack Hussein Obama is starting to make more sense now, and whether the mystery funding by foreign (Saudi) interests to his campaign also is beginning to make sense. Might this not place the Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the U.S. government into appropriate context as well? But I digress.
To understand why Iran seems to be suddenly stirring things up, you’ve got to understand the “back-story.”...the real, difficult to accept accounting of our involvement in the Middle East. If you’ve read my numerous reports about Benghazi, you’ll already understand that our continued push to rid Syria of Assad would be answered through asymmetrical means.
Through this movement of Iranian war ships, we are witnessing the movement of chess pieces in this game of global, 3-D chess. We must keep in mind that this game has different boards, layers and pieces. The Iranian ships are but one piece on one board. There are many others, each inter-related.
Simply put, Iran is a proxy nation of Russia, much like North Korea is a proxy nation of China. Both Russia and China have military and economic interests in Syria, which is the back door to Iran. Under Obama, the puppet attached to Saudi strings, played a central role in unceremoniously dispatching Gaddafi to his final reward under the pretext of freeing an oppressed Libyan people. You might recall the glee expressed by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton when given the news that Gaddafi was finally out of the way.
At the same time, the U.S. NATO, the U.S., and several other allies, including Saudi Arabia, were already engaged in a proxy war with Russia and Iran in Syria. Key to toppling Assad was, and still is, supplying arms and trained fighters to assist the “anti-Assad rebels.” This was the purpose of the CIA compound in Benghazi. As I pointed out along with Michael Reagan in his article Building on a kernel of truth, northern Africa, and specifically Libya served as a virtual Ho Chi Minh trail of Muslim Brotherhood supply lines arming the rebels.
Before the operation could wind down in Benghazi, the logistics hub for the planning and staging these arming operations, the CIA compound was the site of a coordinated, pre-planned attack by groups affiliated with Iran and by proxy, Russia. Syria held and continues to hold military and economic importance to Russia, and Putin made it clear that meddling in Syria could start World War III. That’s what we were doing then, and that’s what we are still doing now.
As I reported in my previous columns and on my radio show, Putin is not about to allow our covert assistance to oust Assad and destabilize Syria to go unanswered. While he might feel temporarily restrained by the potential influence of Saudi controlled terrorism at games at Sochi, we can expect him to come out swinging after the Olympic games at Sochi conclude.
While the Iranian warships are certainly no match for our navy, it is important to understand that we are seeing a geopolitical game of 3-D chess play out before us. Like chess, moves are calculated far in advance and often, moves are made for purposes other than direct confrontation. Sometimes, moves are made to spread out the other player’s pieces. Make no mistake, the Iranian ships are pieces on this board and under Putin’s control.
Some saw it immediately. The Putin resolution to the Syrian chemical weapons "red line crossing" was a finesse by the astute upon the unwitting. Obama was term released from the little box into which he had placed himself. The relief was immediate. went to the back burner. But now the product of Putin's maneuver becomes crystal clear. Syria is seemingly absolved of any punitive measures and certainly they are retaining, in one form or another, the chemical weapons in question.
Syria is woefully behind in its obligation to remove these chemical weapons.
Per the Reuters article...."All the indications are, and the secretary-general's report makes clear, that actually the regime has been sort of stalling on the implementation of the agreement," the diplomat said.....Another senior Western diplomat said the Syrian government is "teasing us" by dragging its heels but doing enough to avoid being declared in non-compliance with its obligation to destroy its chemical weapons program.
The second diplomat added that Russia would never permit the U.N. Council to declare Assad's government in non-compliance with its duty to eliminate its poison gas program."
Obama has been carved out of the mix. Perhaps he is delighted. But we all witness how Syria has not been punished for the use of chemical weapons, are in non compliance, and that the President's words have assumed an international degree of hollowness. Putin and Syria have moved the pea beneath the shells and the President and his people are victims of the ruse. Maybe they're relieved.
Iranian state TV on Friday ran a documentary featuring a computerized video of Iran’s drones and missiles bombing Tel Aviv, Haifa, Ben Gurion Airport and the Dimona nuclear reactor in a hypothetical retaliation for an Israeli or American strike on the Islamic Republic.
Iranian drones and missiles are also shown carrying out simulated strikes on the American aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, downing American aircraft and striking American military targets in the Persian Gulf.
The clip was broadcast amid a clear escalation of anti-American rhetoric and even action by Iran: On Saturday, an Iranian admiral announced that Iran had despatched warships to the North Atlantic, while Iran’s spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei denounced the Americans as liars who, while professing to be friends of Iran, would bring down his regime if they could. He also said it was “amusing” that the US thought Iran would reduce its “defensive capabilities.”
The film, entitled “The Nightmare of Vultures,” opens with Supreme Leader Khamenei addressing military academy graduates in 2011, warning: “Anybody who thinks of attacking the Islamic Republic of Iran should be prepared to receive strong slaps and iron fists from the Armed Forces.”
“And America, its regional puppets and its guard dog – the Zionist regime – should know that the response of the Iranian nation to any kind of aggression, attacks or even threats will be a response that will make them collapse from within,” the film shows him saying.
Set to dramatic music, the video shows Iranian drones and missiles carrying out strikes against Tel Aviv’s Kikar Hamedina square, the Azrieli Towers skyscrapers, and the IDF’s Kirya central command complex, as well as Ben Gurion International Airport, Haifa’s Technion, several army and air force bases, and the nuclear reactor in Dimona.
The strike on the Israel’s central command building is shown taking place while former prime minister Ehud Olmert and former defense minister Amir Peretz — who served in that capacity during the 2006 Second Lebanon War — are inside convening a meeting.
This is a follow up to a previous provocation of similar type. The Iranian news agency,Fars, is quite eager to show how its bosses in the revolutionary guards are willing and daring to provoke the Americans in this manner. The US under Obama has become a pathetic joke, a dying super power whose rivals think nothing of poking it with a stick to measure how decomposed it has already become.
Sad but true.
The plan is part of Iran’s response to Washington’s beefed up naval presence in the Persian Gulf. The US Navy’s 5th fleet is based in Bahrain – across the Persian Gulf from Iran – and the US has conducted two major maritime war games in the last two years.
In September 2011, Sayyari had announced that the country planned to move vessels into the Atlantic Ocean to start a naval buildup “near maritime borders of the United States”.
“Like the arrogant powers that are present near our maritime borders, we will also have a powerful presence close to the American marine borders,” Sayyari said.
Speaking at a ceremony marking the 31st anniversary of the start of the 1980-1988 war with Iraq, Sayyari gave no details of when such a deployment could happen or the number or type of vessels to be used.
Sayyari had first announced in July, 2011 that Iran was going to send “a flotilla into the Atlantic”.
The Iranian navy has been developing its presence in international waters since 2010, regularly launching vessels in the Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Aden to protect Iranian ships from Somali pirates operating in the area.
Sochi Becomes Focus Of Imperial Brinkmanship As Russia Threatens To Intervene Militarily In The Ukrainian Crisis
The Sochi winter Olympics has been covered extensively lately from various angles, like the CIA backed terror threat on the games and the way the Pentagon attempts to leverage this manufactured threat to set its foot in the black sea, right at Russia’s backyard. However, there is more to this particular winter Olympics then just a Russian attempt to gain international prestige or an American attempt to sabotage that Russian policy. Both sides of this equation play a dirty imperial game of brinkmanship which begs for further explanation, which we will attempt to provide here.
Sochi is located very close to the disputed territory of Abkhazia on the eastern coast of the Black Sea and the south-western flank of the Caucasus, where the Russia–Georgia War of 2008 took place between NATO puppet Mikheil Saakashvili (the Georgian president) and Putin’s Russia. In Putin’s strategic picture Abkhazia is an important vassal state in the Caucasus array of his neo-Czarist ambitions, whereas the Georgians consider it to be their own territory- hence NATO’s backing of their assault on South Ossetia, planned to either disrupt the Russian dominance of that region or to drag them in to a prolonged guerrilla quagmire of the Chechen and Afghan caliber. So far these attempts appear to have failed due to Russia’s resilience to western “humanitarian” pressure and its willingness to employ great brutality in its Caucasian wars to subdue the opponent (something their English speaking propaganda channel ‘RT news’ never mentions, for some mysterious reason…)
Putin’s primary goal with the games is to imprint in world public opinion the notion that the northwestern Caucasus is a bona fide Russian territory.
The western attacks on Putin, like the aforementioned attempts to terrorize the games using Islamist terror cells, are not related to a conflict with the Saudis as many media venues have claimed recently (the Saudis are at best second tier sub contractors for the west) but to an attempt to disrupt Putin’s plan, and therefore to ramp up support for Caucasian nationalist and separatist movements who wish to secede from the Russian federation.
The reason for the strategic importance of the Caucasus region are the vast oil and gas deposits found beneath it, its position as a passageway for oil and gas pipelines heading eastward to China and its location at Russia’s Southern flank. Whoever wins the battle for the Caucasus gains control on all of the above, effectively excreting leverage on the entire Eurasian landmass. For this reason both NATO and Russia are willing to play this high stakes game.
Since the west is engulfed in a prolonged and devastating financial meltdown, its willingness to poke the nuclear armed Russian bear signifies great despair. This also explains the heavy handed intervention in the Ukrainian crisis, where a mob of western backed neo-Fascist thugs has paralyzed the government following its decision to remain in the Russian sphere of influence once Putin lured it with a 40% reduction on the price of natural gas supplies from Russia. A senior Kremlin aide accused the United States on Thursday of arming Ukrainian “rebels” and, urging the Kiev government to put down what he called an attempted coup, warned Russia could intervene to maintain the security of its ex-Soviet neighbor. Sergei Glazyev, an adviser to Putin with responsibility for relations with Ukraine, told a newspaper that “U.S. interference breached the 1994 treaty under which Washington and Moscow jointly guaranteed Ukraine’s security and sovereignty after Kiev gave up its Soviet-era nuclear arsenal.”
Tensions keep rising between the superpowers across Russia’s borders in Europe and the Caucasus. NATO’s reckless and arrogant meddling is based on the assumption that Russia can be subdued like a banana republic – except it is a nuclear banana. All of the above clearly indicates that Brzezinski is firmly at the helm of US policy these days, as we explained back in October and that his primary goal is to destroy Russia and Israel at all cost, regardless of the consequences.
It only remains to be seen who is left around to pick up the pieces.
[Take this one with a grain of salt and file it under "hmmm...interesting"]
An ominous entry placed into the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) report prepared by top disarmament official Mikhail Ulyanov and circulating in the Kremlin today claims that the “staged” warning given to the world yesterday by Edward Snowden protégé and defender Matthew Mills [photo top left with US newsman Tom Brokaw] during a press conference following the most watched television event in America, called the Super Bowl, is most likely a “precursor” for a “false flag” type event due to occur within the month engineered by the Obama regime.
A further violation of START by the Obama regime, this report says, involves the massive US military operation called Sentry Savannah 2014 involving hundreds of fighter aircraft operating this month within the “protected zone” of Washington D.C. as a concentration of these forces have raised concerns that the US is fearing a large scale attack/retaliation of some type to occur.
In the midst of Russia’s growing concerns about the increasingly belligerent Obama regime towards international treaties, this report continues, the “staged event” that occurred yesterday during a Super Bowl press conference cannot be overlooked due to its links to the US military factions supporting Snowden.
Of the “staged event” itself, this report says, Matthew Mills, 30, interrupted a post game press conference by taking the stage, grabbing the microphone and saying, “Investigate 9/11...9/11 was perpetrated by people within our own government.” [See video HERE]
Mills, this report continues, is associated with the dissident American independent press organizationWeAreChange.org whose leader, Luke Rudkowski, has long been a target of the Obama regime for his support of Snowden, most especially his ground breaking interview [See video HERE] with Lavabit founder Ladar Levison exposing how Snowden’s encrypted email system was illegally shut down by the US government.
As to how Mills was able to gain access to the most secured sports event in American history to give his 9/11 warning to the 47.6 percent of US homes who watched the Super Bowl, this report says, was detailed by a local news report
Russian intelligence officials, however, in this report dispute this account as “preposterous” based upon their knowledge of security screening protocols used by US federal policing authorities and further note that a security lapse of this magnitude could not have been perpetrated without “inside help.”
As to the exact purpose/reason behind this 9/11 “warning” this report concludes, it cannot be overlooked that its timing coincides with the suiciding this past week of the three top bankers investigating the manipulation of the gold and silver markets by US banking giant JPMorgan whose vaults now hold less than $1 billon worth of gold bullion against the $64 billion they have to pay out by 15 February.
Critical to note, and as we had reported on in our report “15 February “Catastrophe” Warned Will Shake Entire World,” the Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) of the Ministry of Defense had previously warned that the assassinations of these three top Western bankers was being engineered by the Obama regime in order to establish some type of “new world economic order” prior to the coming global meltdown of markets and massive bank failures, some of which have already begun.
Also, and as the GRU exhaustively noted, with the proof that the 11 September 2001 attacks upon the US were designed, in part, to prevent the total collapse of Western banking system, with the warning signs of a global economic meltdown increasing by the day, and with the Obama regimes increasing reliance on dictatorial rule, this report concludes by stating that this “9/11 warning” should, indeed, send shockwaves across the entire world.
