I want to say I also doubt a war is coming.
But at this point, reality itself seems so unstable that I’m not comfortable making any hard predictions.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says he does not believe a war will break out in the region as Tehran does not want a conflict and no country has the “illusion it could confront Iran”, state news agency IRNA reports.
Concerns about a possible conflict have flared since the White House ordered warships and bombers to the Middle East to counter an alleged, unexplained threat from Iran.
Earlier this week the US also pulled some diplomatic staff from its embassy in Baghdad following weekend attacks on four oil tankers off the coast of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
“There will be no war because neither we want a war, nor has anyone the idea or illusion that it can confront Iran in the region,” Zarif told IRNA before ending his visit to Beijing.
I think Orange Man, Fat Guy and Pedo Mustache may indeed have that idea or illusion.
This crew thinks they’re the Reservoir Dogs.
And Saudis definitely have that illusion.
Meanwhile, Saudi media reported that the kingdom and a number of Gulf states have agreed to a request by the US to redeploy the latter’s military forces in Gulf waters and territories.
According to the reports, the approval came on the basis of bilateral agreements between Washington and Gulf countries.
The motive for redeployment, according to the Saudi reports, was to deter Iran from any attempt to escalate the situation militarily, not to engage in a war with it.
Last week, Time magazine quoted Pentagon officials as saying there was no military plan to confront Iran.
On the Iranian side, the Guardian newspaper reported in an exclusive report on Thursday that Tehran had ordered its militias in the Middle East to prepare for a proxy war.
The deputy commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, Mohammad Saleh Jokar, said on Friday that his country’s missiles could easily reach US warships anchored in the Gulf and the rest of the region in case of war.
I think they could sink or at least put some holes in a US aircraft carrier.
They would just have to fire a whole bunch of missiles at once. This is what they did in the 2002 war games. Why would reality be different?
Inside the US, congressional sources on Saturday said officials from Trump’s administration would make secret statements about the situation with Iran this week, after politicians from the Democratic and Republican parties asked for more information.
Members of Congress have complained for weeks that Trump’s administration has not given them enough information about the current tension with Iran, and some Republicans say they have not been briefed on the issue.
What are they going to brief them on?
Pompeo went to Europe and the Europeans said he just rambled on about secret evidence, never showing it or even describing it in any detail.
This is because they don’t have any evidence. They have fake intelligence from Mossad.
These people are kike-suckers of the highest order.
This entire situation is completely insane.
Who can possibly believe any of this nonsense coming out of the White House???
What did Iran do???
