Israel has wanted to wage war against Iran for years to maintain its nuclear monopoly. After Trump exited the Iranian Nuclear Deal, Israel (allegedly) bombed Syria, killing eight Iranian soldiers. Israel claims Iran shot rockets into its territory. Escalation is underway and seems destined to draw America into full-scale war in support of Israel. President Trump and the US Congress have pledged to commit American military might and American lives to this goal. -GEG
The mainstream media has largely ignored airstrikes on Syria, south of Damascus, which reportedly killed at least eight Iranian soldiers. The attack was widely attributed to Israel and was launched just hours after Trump terminated the Iran nuclear deal on May 8th. The foreign policy of the US government is heavily influenced by the Israeli lobby, so there is no reason to doubt that the US will enter a new war with Iran on behalf of Israel’s objectives.
Israel said that it would assassinate Syrian President Assad if he allows Iranian troops to remain inside his borders.
Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, who is in jeopardy of being ousted and imprisoned if found guilty in a corruption investigation, has been advocating war with Iran for many years. Because Russia has been backing Syria, Netanyahu flew to Russia after the (Israeli) attack to meet with Putin to test Putin’s resolve to defend Syria. Putin’s response was to present him with a military parade that showed off ‘Kinzhal’, a nuclear-capable missile that he says is ‘invincible’ because it can penetrate any missile defense system.
The following day, mainstream media published reports by Israel that Iran fired about 20 rockets at Israeli targets in the Golan Heights, a region of Syria that has been illegally occupied by Israel since 1967. Iran has yet to confirm whether they initiated the retaliatory strike.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared on Fox News and said that the reported rocket attack on Israel shows that Iran cannot be trusted and that Israel has a right to defend itself, yet she omitted saying anything about the attack on Syria that provoked the response.
Hezbollah in Lebanon just won an electoral victory and a mandate for ongoing war, which was a source of irritation for Israel.
Events are expected to become even more sensitive as Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, and her husband, Jared Kushner, are due to arrive in Israel in the next few days for the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem.
Palestinians have been protesting the ‘Nakba’ which means catastrophe, and refers to the war with Israelis in 1948 that left 700,000 Palestinians uprooted from their homes, creating a refugee crisis that is still not resolved. May 15th will mark the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, which will stoke additional tension.
An email from Hillary Clinton when she was Secretary of State shows that US leaders have committed to support Israel at all costs, including the expenditure of American lives, and that this war has been planned for years. Here is an excerpt:
“The best way to help Israel deal with Iran’s growing nuclear capability is to help the people of Syria overthrow the regime of Bashar Assad.
Negotiations to limit Iran’s nuclear program will not solve Israel’s security dilemma. Nor will they stop Iran from improving the crucial part of any nuclear weapons program — the capability to enrich uranium. At best, the talks between the world’s major powers and Iran that began in Istanbul this April and will continue in Baghdad in May will enable Israel to postpone by a few months a decision whether to launch an attack on Iran that could provoke a major Mideast war.
Iran’s nuclear program and Syria’s civil war may seem unconnected, but they are. For Israeli leaders, the real threat from a nuclear-armed Iran is not the prospect of an insane Iranian leader launching an unprovoked Iranian nuclear attack on Israel that would lead to the annihilation of both countries. What Israeli military leaders really worry about — but cannot talk about — is losing their nuclear monopoly….”
A man living in a smoke shop fired shots after three juveniles wearing masks broke into the store to rob it, and he wounded one of them. The man who fired the shots is in prison now without bail and faces up to 20 years for protecting himself.
The CDC website states, “Among 457 ICU admissions and 1,037 non-ICU hospitalizations, 358 (78%) and 732 (71%), respectively occurred among persons with one or more reported underlying health condition.”
Daniel McAdams says the number of people dying from COVID-19 are very low, yet Anthony Fauci is claiming that 100,000 to 200,000 people are going to die if Trump puts an end to lockdown. Fauci says that, if the president does nothing, two-million people will die.
The University of Oxford study indicates COVID-19 may have infected half the British population. The results suggest that the coronavirus is not as nearly as serious as claimed by the Imperial College, which predicted that half-a-million people in the UK would die.
People who question the mainstream media’s claims of hospitals looking like war zones due to floods of people infected and dying from the coronavirus have filmed scenes at hospitals that appear empty, as though the narrative has been invented.
After signing the record-breaking $6.2-trillion Coronavirus Stimulus Act over the weekend, President Trump called for an additional $2-trillion spending in the upcoming ‘phase 4’ coronavirus stimulus. US agencies say they need $600-billion of the pie.
Thomas Massie explains that the Coronavirus stimulus bill is the largest wealth transfer in human history and would make Roman emperors blush. He warns of a fourth stimulus bill, insider trading and continuing lockdown.
Jerry Day explains why the tests for coronavirus are worthless. The tests have been used on dead people to create false death statistics. Day points to the real crisis, which is economic, caused by debt and policies of the banking cartel called the Federal Reserve.
The NRA is suing California officials for closing gun stores during the coronavirus outbreak, accusing them of “promoting a gun-control agenda that suffocates your self-defense rights when you need them most.”
Videos of armored military vehicles being transported by train through Southern California concerned people after the governor called on the National Guard in response to the coronavirus. Officials claimed it was only routine movement and that the National Guard has not been officially mobilized.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) is using the COVID-19 outbreak to press for sweeping new powers that include being able to detain Americans indefinitely without a warrant or a trial. [Not to worry. It’s necessary to protect against coronavirus. Right?]
