Trump: Saudi paid $1bn to increase number of US troops in region

US President Donald Trump said that he made Saudi Arabia pay the US for the increased presence of American service personnel in the region as a result of the regional tensions. In an interview with the American TV channel Fox News, Trump said: “Saudi Arabia is paying us for [our troops]. We have a very good relationship with Saudi Arabia.” “I said, listen, you’re a very rich country. You want more troops? I’m going to send them to you, but you’ve got to pay us. They’re paying us. They’ve already deposited $1 billion in the bank.”’ He sells troops. “We have a…

Pentagram insists US troops are ‘FORCE FOR GOOD’ in Iraq after its parliament votes to expel them

The US Defense Department has claimed that its military presence makes Iraq more secure and “prosperous,” despite calls by Iraqi lawmakers for the removal of all foreign troops from the country and growing tensions with Iran. “At this time, there are no plans by the US military to withdraw from Iraq,” Assistant to the Secretary of Defense Jonathan Rath Hoffman told reporters at a press briefing. And I think it’s been obvious… that the consensus in Iraq seems to be that the United States forces there are a force for good. The official said that the US presence in the…

Americans Have Been Brainwashed To Accept War Without Question

As the United States seemed to teeter on the edge of yet another war, this time with Iran, the biggest concern was just how much support the government had for its mass-murdering schemes. But psychologists say that that is no mistake.  As Americans, we have been conditioned for war all of our lives. Americans have been programmed to accept the violence and domination with a belief that the mass murders are done for some kind of “good.” Propaganda has been widely used along with patriotic images to make even those who consider themselves peaceful cheer for death, violence, and destruction.…

US to Iraq: ‘Vote All You Want, We’re Not Leaving!’

President Trump’s decision earlier this month to assassinate Iran’s top military general on Iraqi soil – over the objection of the Iraqi government – has damaged the US relationship with its “ally” Iraq and set the region on the brink of war. Iran’s measured response – a few missiles fired on an Iraqi base after advance warning was given – is the only reason the US is not mired in another Middle East war. Trump said his decision to assassinate Gen. Qassim Soleimani was intended to prevent a war, not start a war. But no one in his right mind…

Trump: US troops won’t leave Iraq unless it pays for ‘money we put in’

US President Donald Trump says American troops should not leave Iraq unless Baghdad pays for “the money we put in” the country over the past several years, defying calls by Iraqi officials for US troops to withdraw. “If we leave … you have to pay us for the money we put in,” Trump said Friday in an interview with Fox News at the White House. When host Laura Ingraham asked how Trump planned to collect money from Iraq, the president said: “Well, we have a lot of their money right now. We have a lot of their money. We have…

Now The Iranians Are Promising More Military Action Against U.S. Forces, And That Would Definitely Start World War 3

What in the world are the Iranians thinking?  After President Trump decided not to respond militarily to the rockets that the Iranians fired at U.S. bases in Iraq, it appeared that a major war had been averted.  People all over the world celebrated this unexpected turn of events, and global stock markets soared.  But now the Iranians are changing their tune again.  Instead of “standing down”, top Iranian leaders are warning that “harsher revenge” is on the way and that there will be more attacks against U.S. forces.  I think that Iran correctly perceives that Trump does not want a…

Come Home, America: Stop Policing the Globe and Put an End to Wars-Without-End

It’s time to bring our troops home. Bring them home from Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria. Bring them home from Germany, South Korea and Japan. Bring them home from Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Oman. Bring them home from Niger, Chad and Mali. Bring them home from Turkey, the Philippines, and northern Australia. That’s not what’s going to happen, of course. The U.S. military reportedly has more than 1.3 million men and women on active duty, with more than 200,000 of them stationed overseas in nearly every country in the world. Those numbers are likely significantly higher in keeping with the Pentagon’s policy of not fully…

Opposing Iran War Doesn’t Make You Conservative or Liberal, It Makes You Smart

Despite the establishment telling Americans otherwise, the United States is marching directly into a major conflict with Iran that could have catastrophic implications. The two-party paradigm’s grip on Trump supporters has them shifting from previously supporting Trump’s anti-intervention stance on which he campaigned, into full on support for a senseless and dangerous war. This is the exact same scenario that unfolded with Obama when he turned the antiwar Left into pro-war interventionists. If you stand against this escalation, according to the establishment, you are anti-America. But in reality, you’re just smart. To those foolish enough to be supporting such idiotic…

Iran Warns That Israel Will Be Bombed If Trump Responds To The Missile Attack On U.S. Bases In Iraq

We are at one of the most critical turning points in modern world history, and whether or not we will be able to avoid World War 3 will come down to a handful of key decisions that Donald Trump will make over the next few days. If he makes the wrong decisions, he will be second guessed for generations to come. But if he makes the right decisions, he could literally change the course of human history for the better. The entire globe was shocked when Iran fired more than a dozen ballistic missiles at U.S. bases in Iraq a…

WAR: Iran’s Overnight Strikes On U.S. Assets Amplifies War Tensions

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said that Iran is fully blaming the United States for the death of Quds Force commander General Qassem Soleimani. And last night, Iran attacked U.S. military targets within Iraq as a retaliation. The Ayatollah said that the attack has “humiliated” Washington, adding that the strikes served as a “slap in the face” for the United States, but were not “sufficient” to remove “the corrupting presence of America in the region.” He also stated that Tehran is viewing the U.S. as their enemy. But President Donald Trump has already tweeted that the missiles launched at…

Americans Are Debating About Whether We Will Go To War With Iran, But The Iranians Say The War Has Already Started

Whether you want it or not, the war with Iran has already begun.  It is kind of sad that the pundits on our cable news channels are so clueless about what has happened.  They seem to think that there is still a debate about whether we will go to war with Iran or not, but meanwhile the Iranians believe that the war has already started.  Of course most Americans don’t want such a war, and President Trump didn’t intend to start one, but we now have one nonetheless.  Over the past few days, vast hordes of Iranians mourning the death…

‘Criminal’ Power Companies Greater Threat to US Electrical Grid than ‘Unlikely’ Iran Cyberattack

The claims that Iran is planning a cyberattack against the US in response to the assassination of Quds Force commander Gen. Qassem Soleimani are based on flimsy evidence, technologists told Sputnik on Monday. CNBC reported on Monday that hackers from Iran had allegedly compromised the website of the US Federal Depository Library Program Saturday, posting images of Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the Iranian flag and messages promising revenge against the US for the January 3 killing of Soleimani, the deputy commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The group behind the attack identified themselves as “Iran Cyber…

Trump threatens Iraq with ‘very big sanctions’ unless it pays BILLIONS back for an air base if US troops forced to withdraw

Iraq should brace itself for sanctions that’ll make the ones placed on Iran look pale in comparison if it kicks out the US troops without first covering the costs the US spent on its airbase there, US President Donald Trump said. “We have a very extraordinarily expensive air base that’s there. It cost billions of dollars to build, long before my time. We’re not leaving unless they pay us back for it,” Trump told reporters on board of the Air Force One on Sunday. The punitive measures that the US is ready to slap on its supposed ally in the fight against…

US military confirms terror attack on US base in Kenya

The U.S. military has confirmed that there has been a terror attack on a military base in Kenya that houses some U.S. military personnel. The Somali terror group al-Shabab has claimed responsibility for the attack that Kenyan authorities said had been repelled with four militants killed in the fighting. “U.S. Africa Command acknowledges there was an attack at Manda Bay Airfield, Kenya and is monitoring the situation,” said U.S Army Maj. Gen. William Gayler in a statement. “Al-Shabab resorts to lies, coercion, and the exertion of force to bolster their reputation to create false headlines …It is important to counter…

Outraged Americans condemn US actions in Iraq and Iran: ‘Enough with this nonsense’

Demonstrators took to the streets across the U.S. on Saturday to protest the Trump administration’s killing of a top Iranian general and decision to send about 3,000 more soldiers to the Middle East. “No justice, no peace. U.S. out of the Middle East,” about 200 protesters chanted near the Trump Tower in Chicago. Protesters held signs that read “Stop bombing Iraq” and “U.S. troops out of Iraq.” More than 70 planned protests were being spearheaded by Act Now to Stop War and End Racism, a U.S.-based anti-war coalition, in conjunction with other organizations. They seek withdrawal of U.S.troops from Iraq and end to what it…

“No More Threats” – Trump Warns Iran “52 Targets Will Be Hit Very Fast & Hard”

Following today’s mortar attacks, and bellicosity from various Iranian (and Iran-backed) leaders, President Trump has responded in words (for now), warning Iran in three short words: “no more threats!” In three short tweets, Trump explained he is done being threatened… “Iran is talking very boldly about targeting certain USA assets as revenge for our ridding the world of their terrorist leader” Then reminded his followers just exactly what Soleimani had done… “[Soleimani] had just killed an American, & badly wounded many others, not to mention all of the people he had killed over his lifetime, including recently hundreds of Iranian…

Iran Has Hezbollah Sleeper Cells in the U.S. Ready to Strike

The threat posed by Iran-backed Hezbollah sleeper cells embedded in major American cities has once again come to the fore following the killing of Iran’s Quds Force General Qasem Soleimani. Following last night’s assassination of the Iranian military leader, authorities in both New York and Los Angeles announced that they were ramping up security in readiness for possible revenge attacks on U.S. soil. This is because Iran is known to have placed Hezbollah terrorist sleeper cells throughout not just Europe but the United States too. Alex Jones is live on air right now breaking down President Trump’s proportional & historic…

Iranian Commander Warns 35 US Positions in Mideast, Tel Aviv are Within Tehran’s Reach – Report

The report comes in the aftermath of the murder of Qasem Soleimani, a top Iranian military commander who was killed in Baghdad on Friday in an airstrike authorised by US President Donald Trump. Thirty five vital American targets in the Middle East, as well as Tel Aviv, are “within Iran’s reach”, Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Commander, Gholamali Abuhamzeh, said as cited by Tasnim news agency. “The Strait of Hormuz is a vital point for the West and a large number of American destroyers and warships cross there … vital American targets in the region have been identified by Iran since…

Iran Vows Revenge Against The United States, And The Phrase “World War 3” Is Now Trending…

The world is most definitely a better place without Iranian military chief Qassem Soleimani.  He was a butcher, a murderer and a despised international terrorist.  All over the globe, people are celebrating his death, but without a doubt this also brings us much closer to a cataclysmic war with Iran.  In fact, as you will see below, the phrase “World War 3” is now trending on Google and Twitter.  Soleimani was the second most important person in Iran, and he was a greatly cherished national hero.  His death has absolutely enraged the Iranians, and they are already vowing revenge. Of…

#WWIII Now Trending as Trump Fulfills Neocon Wet Dream of Provoking War with Iran

Late Thursday night, without any congressional authorization, president Donald Trump ordered and carried out the assassination of one of the most powerful people in Iran, knowingly setting off what could amount to a new world war. Qassim Suleimani, the leader of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, was killing in Iraq “to protect U.S. personnel abroad,” according to the Pentagon. In reality, however, this move just hurled the United States and its citizens into perpetual danger and inevitable chaos and debt. The saber rattling began last week when the US accused Iran of killing an American contractor. “Iran killed an American contractor, wounding…

Iran, It’s Your Move – Trump’s Takedown Of Iranian General Qassim Suleimani Is Likely To Start A Global War

We just witnessed one of the most important deaths in the Middle East in decades.  Just hours ago, President Trump ordered the drone strike on Baghdad International Airport that killed Iranian Major General Qassim Suleimani and several other key officials.  Suleimani was the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Quds Force, but even more importantly he was a huge national hero in Iran.  To describe this killing as “seismic” would not do it justice.  U.S. Senator Chris Murphy says that Suleimani was “the second most powerful person in Iran”, and elsewhere he is being described as “the most influential Middle…

Fox News Guest Calls For Bombing Iran Because ‘They Invaded U.S. Sovereign Soil’ In Iraq

Thursday morning on Fox and Friends, regime change advocate Jim Hanson pushed for President Trump to start a war with Iran because “they invaded US sovereign soil” in Iraq by attacking our embassy in retaliation for US airstrikes in Iraq and Syria. From Raw Story: “They attacked us,” [Security Studies Group president Jim Hanson] said. “I think this question is can we play tit-for-tat or can we actually do something that will show them it’s going to hurt them to do things like this? They attacked us in Iraq, we responded.” Hanson told viewers — which likely includes President Donald…

‘They Are Liars, And They Don’t Care About You’: Tucker Slams Neocon Shills Pushing War With Iran

Fox News host Tucker Carlson reacted to news of the death of a top Iranian military leader by warning viewers against “reckless and incompetent” proponents of war with Iran. As news of the death of Iran’s Quds Force General Qasem Soleimani during an airstrike near Baghdad’s airport broke during Thursday night’s broadcasting of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the Fox News host observed that the United States “appears to be lumbering toward a new Middle East war,” one that “official Washington has wanted for decades.” Carlson opined that “disgraced [former] National Security Advisor John Bolton has made it his life’s mission to…

Video Depicting Alleged Assassination Site of Iran’s Soleimani Emerges Online

Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force Commander Soleimani was assassinated after the United States claimed that Tehran was behind the attack on the American Embassy in Baghdad on 31 December. A video allegedly depicting the assassination site of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani has been published on Twitter. The footage shows the burned-out remains of a car after a US airstrike that killed the elite Quds Force commander and several officers from the Iraqi Shia Popular Mobilisation Forces near the Baghdad International Airport. הרכב ההרוס אחרי חיסול סולימאני בבגדאד pic.twitter.com/UcgN7DqiMx — roi kais • רועי קייס (@kaisos1987) January 3,…

Qasem Soleimani: What We Know About Iranian Elite Force’s General That US Took Aim at

Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps’ Major General Qasem Soleimani was killed in rocket fire in Baghdad days after an attempted raid on the US Embassy by Iran-linked Iraqi Shia protesters. Here is what is known about the top Iranian military commander eliminated by US forces. Soleimani, born in 1957, joined the Revolutionary Guards in 1979 after the Iranian Revolution that ousted the Shah. Mind-Blowing Military Career He quickly climbed the career ladder, becoming commander of the 41st Sarallah Division while still under 30 and by the mid-80s he was setting up covert missions inside Iraq to struggle against the regime of…

4,000 US Troop Surge To Middle East Could Be Imminent Amid Baghdad Chaos

Three U.S. defense officials told Fox News on Tuesday that the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division’s alert brigade has been given orders to deploy to Kuwait amid the social unrest in Baghdad. Even though all supporters of Iran-backed militias have withdrawn from the heavily fortified U.S. Embassy in Baghdad on Wednesday, the reinforcement of U.S. troops could be imminent. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said in a statement on Tuesday that 750 troops are immediately deploying to the Middle East because of the attack on the U.S. embassy. The US says it’s sending 750 troops to Iraq after its embassy in Baghdad was stormed by…

Trump says he ‘does not see war with Iran happening,’ hours after issuing ‘threat’ to Tehran

US President Donald Trump has said that the US is not gearing up for war with Iran, adding that he prefers peace to war. It comes just hours after the US leader upped the ante, making a pointed threat against Tehran on Twitter. With simmering tensions between Tehran and Washington flaring up over an attack on the US Embassy in Baghdad, which the US blamed squarely on Iran without providing any proof, there have been growing fears that another war of words could spiral into something far more violent. In an apparent attempt to diffuse the tension, Trump said late…

How Trump Can Derail His Own Reelection – Stumble Into War

It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future,” Yogi Berra reminded us. But on “The McLaughlin Group,” the TV talk show on which this writer has appeared for four decades, predictions are as mandated as was taking Latin in Jesuit high schools in the 1950s. Looking to 2020, this writer predicted that Donald Trump’s great domestic challenge would be to keep the economy firing on all cylinders. His great foreign policy challenge? Avoiding war. When one looks at the numbers — unemployment at or below 4% for two years, an expansion in its 11th year, the stock market regularly hitting all-time…

Will It Be War? U.S. Airstrikes Hit Iranian-Backed Militias As The Pentagon Warns More Military Action May Be Coming

A lot of people seem to have forgotten that we were literally on the brink of war with Iran earlier this year.  Back in June, President Trump cancelled a major U.S. bombing mission against Iran at the last minute, and things seemed to settle down quite a bit since that time.  But now tensions are rising once again.  On Sunday, U.S. airstrikes targeted Iranian-backed militias in Iraq and Syria that U.S. officials believe have been behind recent rocket attacks against U.S. forces.  Of course those Iranian-backed forces never would have launched such attacks in the first place if they did…
