The U.S. Department of Defense announced yesterday they were sending more units to U.S. Central Command in the Persian Gulf to join what was already there as well as the recently added Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber strike group sent earlier in the month. The U.S.S. Arlington and a Patriot Missile battery will be added to the already-formidable military presence.
According to the DoD release:
USS Arlington is a San Antonio-class ship that transports U.S. Marines, amphibious vehicles, conventional landing craft and rotary aircraft with the capability to support amphibious assault, special operations, or expeditionary warfare missions.
USS Arlington also provides a high quality command and control capability and improved interoperability with our allies and partners in the region.
A Patriot battery is a long-range, all-weather air defense system to counter tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and advanced aircraft.
This seems to be more than just preparation for possible attacks by Iran’s proxies, as has been reported by most news outlets covering the situation. Instead, it seems like the type of buildup that is in preparation for an anticipated major attack. As I speculated the Thursday, the anticipated major attack could be Iran’s retaliation for an upcoming Israeli mission to cripple Iran’s nuclear program following the defection of Brigadier General Ali Nasiri.
Here are the important facts to consider:
- Nasiri brought with him a cache of military intelligence
- His role as intelligence chief means he knows the whereabouts of every component of Iran’s nuclear program; his department oversaw protection for the program
- A meeting on April 29 with top brass in U.S. military and intelligence was conspicuously held at CIA headquarters, the venue with the most secure direct connection to Israel’s Mossad
- The two strike groups previously sent to the Persian Gulf combined with what was already there represent a tremendous offensive unit capable of taking out Iran’s entire military if necessary
- The Arlington carries U.S. Marines and vehicles necessary for land-based missions
- The presence of a Patriot battery is for missile attacks should Iran attack in that manner
Iran is being backed into an economic corner by U.S. sanctions, but that does not make an imminent attack on U.S. forces or the nation of Israel likely. They are desperate but not suicidal. It’s for this reason that I’m leaning towards addressing or preventing a counterstrike by Iran as the more likely scenario that calls for such tremendous nation-leveling firepower being sent to the region. If Israel takes out Iran’s nuclear program through airstrikes by Israeli forces, sabotage by the Mossad, or a coordinated combination of the two, Iran would be much more willing to go to war.
The defection of Nasiri just prior to this major escalation and the known meetings that have been held since is too conspicuous to be coincidence.
Once the U.S. has its forces locked and loaded in the Persian Gulf, do not be surprised to hear about actions by Israel to cripple Iran’s nuclear program. Since Iran knows what Nasiri knows, the window of opportunity is short.
Trump hits Biden on China connections
One thing has been made clear by recent events as they pertain to China: They are dying for someone to beat President Trump next November. In many ways, they’re banking on it.
This should make every American, including Democrats, concerned because even more than Russia, China has the capabilities to get in and change the hearts and minds of Americans, hack the 2020 election, and set in motion events that will benefit them. We’re talking about a country with nearly unlimited resources when it comes to cyberwarfare and social engineering. If Russia was ever a real concern to Washington DC, China is the true 800-lb gorilla in the political influence room.
The President called out former Vice President Joe Biden for his and his family’s involvement in China. Speaking to Steve Hilton on the Fox News show, The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton, the President pointed to alarming facts about the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination.
The threat from China is far greater than that from Russia, both economically as well as geopolitically. They have been a stirring giant for years. For the 2020 election, their stirring may turn into game-changing action if we’re not watchful.
Economic portion of Middle East peace plan to be unveiled June 25 in Bahrain
The long-anticipated “deal of the century” finally has an official date for a partial release. The economic portion, which will detail how Palestinians will be supported as well as how they can eventually support themselves, will be unveiled June 25, 2019, at the “Peace to Prosperity” economic forum in the Manama, Bahrain.
The plan, which has been brewing for over two years, is expected to trade land and economic considerations for peace and unity between Israel and a newly formed “New Palestine.” Earlier this month, an alleged leak of the highlights of the plan was leaked to Israeli press.

We may be closer to actual peace in the Middle East than ever before. It may be a Pyrrhic victory for the administration and Israel if it’s successful; a two-state solution could mark the beginning of the end for the Jewish state as its enemies gain a nearer foothold where attacks can happen.
While the plan details are unknown, it must be assumed Israel wouldn’t risk it unless they were either coerced by the United States or if they were made to believe they could maintain security over the newly released lands on the West Bank.
But there’s a different specter that looms large over both Israel and a new Palestinian state. Iran and its proxies are bent on disrupting any peace plan that includes the continued existence of Israel, the dominance of Saudi Arabia in the region, or the influence of United States over the Middle East. They will do everything in their power to disrupt and subvert the peace plan efforts.
“We look forward to engaging with business and thought leaders from throughout the region and the world to build consensus around the best steps the international community can take to develop the foundation for a prosperous future.” – Jared Kushner
By releasing the economic portion first, the White House hopes to get support from the Arab world and Palestinians to pressure leadership into considering the plan. As of now, Palestinian leadership has preemptively rejected the plan.
Capt. Chuck Nash: Iranian regime trying to hold out in hopes Trump is not reelected
Iran’s saber rattling continues as the U.S. military buildup reaches a point in which they can no longer expect to be able to defend themselves if they start a way. Meanwhile, the President lobbed a clear threat to them about their rhetoric and aggression.
If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 19, 2019
Speaking on Fox News, retired U.S. Navy Captain Charles T. Nash said, “Regimes, whether it’s the Soviet Union or the current theocracy in Iran, they won’t stop loosening up until it’s too late, and when they do they know it’s all going to fly apart. The wheels are going to come off.”
Iran has a serious problem, and it’s not the United States. Their leadership has been so obtuse during times of economic prosperity that they didn’t use it to help their people become self-sustaining. Now, they’re reliant on a government that doesn’t have the resources to help them, making this an issue that goes beyond oppression. They’re on the verge of financial collapse and the only solution is the one solution they will never consider.
As Nash noted in the video above, they won’t change. They can’t. It goes against their nature to do what’s right by their people if doing so means doing anything the United States, Saudi Arabia, or Israel want. Their pride will be the undoing of their people.
President Trump is the biggest reason they’re failing. At this point, all they can do is hope he loses reelection. If he does, they have a chance of recovering if they’re even able to survive that long. If he wins, they’re toast and they know it. Expect to see them attempt to interfere with our elections any way they can, including expansion of Endless Mayfly.
The defection of Ali Nasisi is most likely a huge blessing for America. As their ambitions appear to be coming to light, the information gleaned from the former Iranian Brigadier General has been invaluable.
“What they’re trying to do is hold out hope against hope, and if President Trump is reelected, then they’re going to have to figure out what they’re going to do.” – Captain Charles Nash
Iran is desperate. Now that their military aggression is on call by the President, they may have to resort to terrorism to achieve their goals of ousting Trump and spreading fear across the world.
