Iranian defector Ali Nasiri is the key to ending Iran’s nuclear program once and for all

Iranian defector Ali Nasiri is the key to ending Irans nuclear program once and for all

The massive increase in the United States military presence in the Persian Gulf has been reported as preparation for imminent strikes against the United States and/or Israel by Iran or their proxies. As we reported last week, this move was almost certainly prompted by the defection of former Iranian Brigadier General Ali Nasiri who allegedly fled to an American embassy in a Persian Gulf state with a cache of military intelligence. If there were plans to attack the United States or our interests in the Middle East found in the intelligence, the rapid move to send the Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and nuclear-capable bombers to the region makes perfect sense.

But there’s another angle that hasn’t been explored by the media, an angle that jibes with certain events in recent days. Nasiri’s role as intelligence chief of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) gave him access to the locations of everything associated with Iran’s nuclear program, including the hidden uranium enrichment centers that Iran has threatened to start using again within 60 days. Iran essentially verified this when they announced his firing days after his defection, citing “classified documents and information leaked to Israel and the U.S. regarding Iran’s nuclear program and secret missile bases” as reason for his sacking.

Could Nasiri’s information be leading to a U.S.-backed attack of some sort by Israel against Iran’s nuclear weapons facilities?

A peculiar meeting that took place days before the military ramp-up may be a clear indicator that this is the case.

John Bolton convened a meeting at CIA headquarters last week with the Trump administration’s top intelligence, diplomatic and military advisers to discuss Iran, according to six current U.S. officials.

The meeting was held at 7 a.m. on Monday, April 29, and included CIA Director Gina Haspel, Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joe Dunford, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, five of the officials said.

When top military brass meets with top intelligence officials at CIA headquarters, there aren’t many conclusions that can be drawn. These sort of meetings happen at the White House unless there’s a very good reason to keep the circle smaller. It could be as simple as discussing imminent attacks from Iran. But it could be as significant as coordinating with Israel on a covert operation to set back Iran’s nuclear program by decades. If the CIA and Mossad are talking about this, meeting at CIA headquarters makes perfect sense.

If such an action was in the works, it would behoove both nations to make sure a sufficient force was present in the region when the operation went down. There’s no telling to what degree Iran would respond, but one thing is certain: they wouldn’t be happy and would seek immediate retribution.

Having enough firepower in the region to wipe out Iran’s substantial military forces would be necessary cover if we were about to destroy their nuclear ambitions in one fell swoop.

Iran is well aware of what Nasiri knows and is doing whatever they can to prepare for actions made against them. It must be assumed they are moving what they can and fortifying what they can’t move. This is why the rapid deployment makes sense in the overarching scenario.

The escalation in the Middle East may very well be a clear sign that Iran’s nuclear program is being targeted by Israel and the United States based on Ali Nasiri’s intel. If this plays out, war may be on the horizon.

Two weeks after Benghazi attack, Ilhan Omar Tweeted ‘Allahu Akbar’

Two weeks after Benghazi attack Ilhan Omar Tweeted Allahu Akbar

This is old news, of course, but bears repeating at this time. Representative Ilhan Omar has been doing everything she can over the last couple of weeks to paint herself as the victim of bigotry and someone who loves our country. And while there’s definitely some substance to the notion that crowds of Republicans shouldn’t be chanting “send her back,” it’s also understandable why so many Americans are opposed to her presence on Capitol Hill.

Even if we dismiss reports that she married her brother, called for CBP to be eliminated, said this is “not going to be the country of white people,” referred to 9/11 as “some people did something,” and is regularly praised by former KKK leader David Duke, it’s difficult to dismiss her reaction to the Benghazi attacks that took the lives of four American heroes in 2012.

I’m not going to dignify her Tweet with an opinion. She’s the one who needs to explain it. But despite her celebration, life isn’t good for the four men who lost there’s in Benghazi. Remember this, folks, as Democrats embrace her wholeheartedly.

Iran has seized a British tanker

Evidence points to Iran seizing British tanker

Update 2: They may have captured a second British tanker.

Update 1: Iran has confirmed it seized the tanker.

Original Story:

A British oil tanker traveling through the Strait of Hormuz to Saudi Arabia has made some strange maneuvers, causing speculation that it has been seized by Iran.

The tanker, Stena Impero, veered off course according to positioning trackers and is now heading towards the Iranian island of Qeshm which has a substantial Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) base. British authorities are seeking answers.

The Islamic republic has threatened retaliation for the British seizure of an Iranian tanker heading towards Syria, which would break an EU sanction. Five Iranian attack vessels confronted a British tanker last week but quickly retreated when the Royal Navy frigate HMS Montrose closed in.

Iran has long claimed sovereignty over the international waters of the Strait of Hormuz. They attempted to stage bombings of two oil tankers last month and four in May in hopes of being able to act as defenders of the Strait, but U.S. video of the second round of bombings caught an Iranian ship removing an unexploded mine from the haul. With that potential bargaining chip off the table, it appears they’re trying to work their way to the negotiating table by force.

A collapsing economy is forcing Iran to make aggressive moves. This is standard operating procedure for the desperate. An international military response may be in order to abate further acts of terrorism by Iran.

This story is developing and will be updated.

Is war with Iran inevitable?

Published

Is war with Iran inevitable

Aggressive actions have become commonplace between Iran and the United States over the last two months. The U.S. sent the powerful Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber squadron to the region following the defection and intelligence cache delivery by former Iranian Brigadier General Ali Nasiri. Since then, Iran has been bombing tankers, shooting down American drones, and attempting to seize a British Tanker.

Today, the escalation continued as Iran admitted to capturing at least one foreign oil tanker. Then, the United States sent the USS Boxer, loaded with 2000 Marines, into the Persian Gulf where it shot down an Iranian drone that came within 1000 yards of the ship.

Is war inevitable?

No. There is still a very good chance President Trump will not risk reelection by engaging in another unpopular Middle East war. There are those who think Iran will push it too far, and that may be the case, but their goal would be to provoke attack, not war. It behooves them to get hit by the United States so they can play the victim card in the international arena. This is why they’ll poke, prod, annoy, and continue to be aggressive without going so far as to make war warranted.

An attack by the west is the best thing Iran can hope to happen at this point. Their economy is crumbling. Their terror and military proxies are hurting because of the dried up funds no longer coming in from Tehran. They can’t seem to sneak an oil tanker around Africa to Syria, one of the few places willing to disregard U.S. sanctions against Iran. So they’re left with either giving up their nuclear weapons ambitions altogether or provoking a war without being clearly seen as the aggressors.

Even though I do not believe war is inevitable, I don’t see a way to completely avoid military action. Iran won’t stop until they’ve forced an attack against them.

The Middle East has always been a volatile place. With Iran doing everything they can to appear like the victims to the international community while still seeming strong internally, strikes may be inevitable but war is not.
