COVERT WARS, AND IRAN

COVERT WARS, AND IRAN

As regular readers here might have noticed, for the past week I've been more or less focused on some geopolitical possibilities and speculations. Yesterday, for example, I blogged about the possibility that we may be witnessing some sort of covert warfare going on, principally between the USA and China, but involving other players as well. Today I'd  like to expand briefly on that theme with reference to an article from Zero Hedge that B. shared with me, concerning Iran. It's a bittersweet article for me, because when I was in graduate school, one of my jobs involving working with a lot of people from Iran. They were invariably bright, smart, courteous and, well, just nice. The bittersweet part for me comes from the contrast between my experience of Iranians, and the horrid and brutal regimes which they have suffered, under the Shah (remember SAVAK?) and then under the ayatollahs.

Iran has been in the crosshairs of Mr. Globaloney for a long time, so when B. shared this article, I had to wonder if we're watching another manifestation of that hot covert war I blogged about yesterday:

Third 'Mystery' Blast In Less Than A Week Rocks Iran Power Plant

Zero Hedge lays out an interesting case, and, citing the New York Times and The Times of Israel is wondering the same thing as I:

On Saturday an explosion ripped through a power plant in the Iranian city of Ahvaz, marking the third 'mystery' blast to hit the country in only under a week, and the fourth recently.

State media showed emergency crews on the scene of the daytime incident while a fire raged at the power plant. This followed days ago a huge blast which destroyed Sina hospital in northern Tehran, which killed 19 people and injured 14.

Iranian authorities had described the Sina blast as the result of a gas leak. A similar explanation was offered for other prior explosions.

To review, starting over a week ago a massive explosion was observed lighting up the midnight sky outside Tehran, caught on film by local residents, which Iran's military dismissed as a gas leak explosion incident. But it was later revealed to have occurred at a ballistic missile development facility.

  1. On the halturnerradioshow.com today 7/9/20, he wrote an update on the situation in Iran. Apparently the Foreign Minister of Israel made a public admission that Israel was behind the attack in Natanz. The other incidents with pipe bursting and other explosions occurred as a result of cyber attacks rewriting explosive commands within Iran’s own systems. Iran has been moving S-200 and S-300 in preparation for war with Israel, even relocating an old updated submarine to the waterways. He has photos of the submarine being relocated – an amazing enterprise, to say the least. Iran knows it has to use all it has against Israel on a first strike because it won’t have a 2nd shot at it. Kinetic war is imminent.

    Well, the Western Barbarians are at it again playing with fire as usual. Persia and China have been around as cohesive societies. While the West has been doing the Balkinization Tango since the fall of the Roman Empire. China has broken up several times Persia has lost territory but it core has held. That more than you can say for Europe that hell-bent into braking into smaller pieces at a drop of hat. Yes, these explosions smell of sabotage.

        Across the seven streams of lustral light
        That holds my vessel aloft,
        Floating on currents that contemplate your love,
        That contracts upon me, and holds my parts together,
        In the infinite spaces of your mysteries unveiled;
        Gliding into pools of flooding light, on red and yellow oars, that spiral around blue aspiration that thrills with the chance union, with the cherished Pearl.

        1. Or Proverbs 12:23
          “Smart people keep quiet about what they know, but stupid people advertise their ignorance.”

          It is alright…

  3. I am going to go with Israel having at least a full squadron of radar-evading ‘stealth’ aircraft (F-35) and using them. The MSM will not mention the possibility of them being used to drop bombs from nearby. There are even newly-designed bombs which are nearly non-traceable, having sidewalls which are consumed in the explosion…

    Factoids:
    1) “Looks like Donald Trump is Jewish” by Miles Mathis:
    https://gizadeathstar.com/2019/06/a-bit-of-confirmation-about-those-persian-gulf-attacks/#comment-90255
    2) By middle of summer, Israel has claimed it would annex much of the West Bank, including the Jordan Valley, as part of Trump’s “deal of the century” peace plan:
    https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/hamas-says-planned-israeli-annexation-declaration-war-while-idf-says-were-ready
    3) USAF has since the last election established a full-blown base in Israel:
    defensenews . com/breaking-news/2017/09/18/us-breaks-ground-for-new-permanent-base-in-israel/
    4) Israeli AF and USAF recently conducted a joint military exercise over southern Israel. In it, a large number of F-35 stealth aircraft (from both air forces) performed a variety of missions together:
    breakingdefense . com/2020/03/iran-strike-indications-rise-for-israel-us-forces-in-middle-east/
    5) Top Israeli officials state Israel is on the brink of war with Iran & Hezbollah:
    zerohedge . com/geopolitical/iran-sees-6th-deadly-mystery-explosion-weeks-industrial-zone-near-tehran
    6) For what it is worth, Bolton’s new book stated that Trump was prepared to endorse an Israeli preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear sites:
    zerohedge . com/geopolitical/bolton-trump-gave-bibi-green-light-preemptive-israeli-strike-iran-nuclear-sites
    7) Netanyahu and Gantz agreed in April to establish a unity government, which gives Bibi political/military power as he faces trial on corruption charges (needing a ‘distraction’):
    nytimes . com/2020/04/20/world/middleeast/netanyahu-israel-government-gantz.html

    In my opinion, all of the above – and more – suggest that Trump is (as Miles Mathis has noted) a “disposable President” and is moving into his predetermined ‘role’. It appears that an all-out (aerial) assault is to begin shortly on Iran. Iran is being ‘goaded’ with all these pinpricks, and no one would be surprised if they struck back. A real or False Flag incident would then occur, and our “disposable President” would move to place America in the middle of it.

    Israel (the Powers behind Israel) would have their Dream War, where US and Iran fight each other while Israel cheers from the sidelines…

      Goshawks, agreed 100%.
      This has the IDF/Mossad fingerprints all over it.
      The masters of deception.
      The masters of the False Flag.
      The masters of assassination.
      The Irgun never went away, it simply became an overt political (Likud) / military (IDF), propaganda (ADL) operation.

      Lesser and greater Satan go hand in hand, in love affair, blessed by pope Satan.

      Love is in the air, and they want to get married in Persia.

      Europe is already colonized, by star-spangled greater Satan.

      The USA cavalry doesn’t bother about pretext, when invading Iceland:

    3. I see your Iran play and raise you one China addon.

      Officially Russia is Iran’s ally too. De facto, Israel owns Russia more so than the US. So what does Jacob R tell Putin to do on the wall of Plato’s cave?

      1. Yes, this is interesting when we get into “Phoenician Navy” aspects. Deep down, what are ‘they’ pushing us towards? (And I actually believe “Jacob R” is only a mid-level Player. Someone is telling him to jump, and he asks how high…)

    4. https://arstechnica.com/science/2020/07/rocket-report-surprise-israeli-launch-britain-decides-to-bail-out-oneweb/
      “Shavit-2 rocket launches Israeli satellite. The Israeli government and Israel Aerospace Industries on Monday conducted a previously unannounced launch of a reconnaissance satellite, NASASpaceflight.com reports. A Shavit-2 rocket deployed the Ofek 16 satellite into low Earth orbit. This is the first launch of the smallsat launcher in nearly four years.”

      1. Perhaps related:
        https://arstechnica.com/science/2020/07/rocket-report-surprise-israeli-launch-britain-decides-to-bail-out-oneweb/
        “Military prepping for a rare Minotaur 4 launch. Crews working on Virginia’s Eastern Shore have raised a top-secret payload for the National Reconnaissance Office atop a solid-fueled Minotaur 4 rocket for liftoff on July 15. It is the first Minotaur launch in nearly three years, Spaceflight Now reports. The Air Force awarded Northrop Grumman a $38 million contract to launch the NROL-129 mission, military officials confirmed in early 2019. … The Minotaur 4 rocket can carry payloads of up to 1.7 tons into low-Earth orbit.”

  4. According to Brendon O’Connell, Intel and all in Tel Aviv and elsewhere has already provided Bibi with a backdoor in 90+% of chips on the planet. Not to commit to the fallacy of the single cause – yet this would provide some much simpler explanations for a whole bunch of mysterious going’s on over the last few years. Boeing’s flights. Malaysia’s. Luftansa. Iran’s shoot down? Heck even 911’s flights. And that’s just flights. What about other catastrophic digital failures. Fukushima Daichi? A whole bunch of oddly guided ships?
    Kind of a long and growing list, isn’t it?

  5. HUH?
    But that particular ‘mystery’ blast caused Iranian officials to lash out in anger Thursday, saying “hostile countries” like the US and Israel are near the point of crossing “red lines”.

    How many blasts does it take to cross a red line where the entire population loses all trust that could have remained in their military? Let alone their government?

  6. Doc, I have had similar experience with folk from a few other countries. Feels like the harsher and longer that country’s oppression, the more appreciative and kinder the escapees are. Phillipines? Japan? Ukraine? Greece? Ireland? And for sure Iran.

  7. Probably another salvo in an ongoing covert war/operation. Remember how hard Iran was hit by “Covid” right at the beginning of the whole virus op? Just about too suspicious to be coincidence.

    1. There were 5 strains at first and Iran got hit with a bad one. Wonder who will get hit and when (this fall) with another or worse one.

  8. How do you turn a “covert” war into a “hot” war? Regime change. How often have wars started when regimes changed–or were changed–directly or indirectly? We have enough history buffs here to name one that didn’t–assuming none is in the list.

    A theme pervades the 20th Worst Century:
    … and then they come for you.
    I remember when the color revolutions were spreading across the globe, on a goose-stepped General Wesley predictable march. Then covid1984 did a similar ordered march. Then were those acts of God hit across the globe.
    … and the they came to the USA.

    Whether it be literal power blasts in Iran; fires in Australia; or, hurricanes in New Orleans; there are those behind these “magic” powers; from the invisible magic viruses, to the magic bullets of the past; to the present Iran power blasts – they all represent a deadly precognition:
    … and then they’ll come for you.

    1. Robert Barricklow

      In all these cases; the Leona Helmsley little people take the hit. So this is a covert war; but is it also a covert class war.
      Are “they” going for a back-to-the-future; where the few rule over the rest of the world: the slaves?
      Is this being sold as a bright future for the few; one hell of an opportunity for the chosen few?

      What kind of “being” could buy that product?
      One who would buy you?

  10. Military trained folks on another forum I am on are starting to come to similar conclusions – just too many explosions and then that message from Iran about how they could respond to “attacks” with weapons hidden offshore near other countries.

    Interesting times…Oh and I also worked a lot with Persian students just before, during, and after the Revolution, almost everyone alive these days experienced horrific governmental systems both before and after.

      Western oligarchy executes at random, by world wars in trenches and uniformed mass slaughter.

      Then history books are written, by the victors, defining the scapegoat, and whitewashing the ruling class.

      Those, who oppose western oligarchy, and define lesser and greater Satan, are outlawed automatically.

      Me, and my little armalite!

  11. The Masque op has come to Iran as well, according to a recent article; not sure how that affects the women….

  12. It actually could be incompetence where Iran is concerned. When one considers that this SARS-CoV-2 / Covid-19 tends to go harshly with those with experience and years, those same people needed to proficiently operate technical positions might have been too close to the Party (closer than 6 ft); just like those few in Germany that spent some time in mainland China, presumably engaged in ‘make-nice-diplomacy-talk’ with a new factory opening. The bug got in the way of those niceties when it hitched a ride with a trainee but didn’t agree with local German factory related population, especially, the susceptible.

    When dealing with well-funded extra-constitutional agencies, speculation serves to fuel diversionary tactics by tweaking subsequent decisions. It helps the anonymous stay anonymous unless another grouping knows the tactics well enough to be well informed and directly observant of nefarious actions when they occur. Or a typical spy vs spy or agency vs agency scenario. Both with resources and personnel for the tasking.

    Then again, carelessness is just as easy a scapegoat as another’s plot. They tend to look the same anyway without access to details and facts. Besides each of your potpourri of possibilities requires boots on the ground, financing, and logistical support to accompany a clever narrative. Probably the size of a small army plus. When double edged or multi edged by several players Occam’s Razor (or razors) cuts accordingly and easily in multiple directions. Strategy seems more revealing than overt / covert tactics. Given the secrecy imposed by the Party and its associated allies a built in clandestine operation is already in play. Not one to expect a pathological liar to tell any truths contrary to the state run operation, that leaves discernment.

    As far as declaring any unacknowledged special access project (or participation or proxy war) that would be too much like discussing sources and methods and exposing perpetrators without clear evidence, but such speculations do drive narratives. Besides, there’s been a cyber war (a phrase from an Omni Magazine article in the late 80’s and later drafted into computer use in the 90’s) going on for nearly three decades now and intensifying. Intellectual property theft, industrial and science based espionage, and infiltration of institutions just some of the more recent signs of an adversarial opponent more broadly acknowledged as deviant. One need only consider the state supported players, especially, the largest army supported player from you know where. You would have to write another book to be more expansive and definitely inclusive of that tiger in the dark as well as blatant dragon during the day. It’s almost as if that tiger dragon adopted the Tanaka Memorial from the 1920’s from the Japanese, slapped some Chinese characteristics onto it, and substituted others out of it and called it, ”The Hundred-Year Marathon” forcing the rest of the populated planet to play along (or else).

    In any case, until the facts and evidence come out (like that’s probable anytime soon) vigilante investigations must serve. Sorting through the terms, signs, and symbology, where semantics might provide meaning, . . . that seems a loose rabbit already down a hole. Probably, a bottomless pit. But there is a cyber war, “a peoples war,” and “Unrestricted Warfare,” taking place. Tactics of war have become blurred into meaninglessness as to evade the courts yet remain tangible enough through loss. One is not suspicious of any kind of special war, there just is. It is unconventional “Unrestricted Warfare.”

    1. Another form is having agents create or infiltrate pre-existing fringe groups and cults in both high and low places to radicalize, mind control and compromise them so that they can exploit them for black ops and to recruit more agents. One group has been doing this for thousands of years and now have millions worldwide under their control. The people creating or financing these operations and groups don’t have to share their crazy and criminal beliefs they just use them to compromise more potential agents and groups. They also use their own expendable undesireables to participate in the activities of, finance, and control these secret societies. This group uses their compromised agents, both their own undesireables and others from other peoples, to take over governments, intelligence agencies, media, finance, religious institutions and ects. The people at the top don’t have to be satanists to use satanists. Corruption of others to destroy and control them is just another form of warfare in their religious war. So is building their enemies up to pit them against other enemies for maximum destruction.

    Persians understand the biblical narrative, and they draw conclusions from the Old Testament, on how the resist papal Rottenchild’s cardinal casino.

    The imperial characteristics are slavery, citizenry and oligarchy of money. Empires are created by THREE principles:

    1. Usurious finance.
    2. Court espionage.
    3. Revolutionary subversion.

    Criminal finance places a spy at court, who seeks second position to the throne, and becomes ruler by default, through assassination.

    Where after revolutionaries keep the cultural waters muddled, to divert attention, away from the spy on the throne, who fears public scrutiny.

    It is a THREE headed troll.
