Iran’s Major General Qassem Soleimani has sharply reacted to the recent “cabaret owner-style” military threat by US President Donald Trump against the Islamic Republic, saying he takes the position to respond “as a soldier” since it is beneath the dignity of Iran’s president to do so.
Addressing Trump, the commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said, “You threaten us with an action that is ‘unprecedented’ in the world. This is cabaret-style rhetoric. Only a cabaret owner talks to the world this way.”
He was reacting to Trump’s all-caps tweet addressed to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, in which he threatened the Islamic Republic with actions “the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before.”
The tweet came after President Rouhani warned the US against its hostile approach against Iran, saying America should know that peace with Iran will be the mother of all peace while war with the country will be the mother of all wars.
“It is beneath the dignity of our president to respond to you. I, as a soldier, respond to you,” Soleimani further said.
You already did all you could!
The senior general further reminded the United States of its failures in its invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan.
“What was it that you could do over the past 20 years but you didn’t? You came to Afghanistan with scores of tanks and personnel carriers and hundreds of advanced helicopters and committed crimes there. What the hell could you do between 2001 and 2018 with 110,000 troops? You are today begging Taliban for talks,” Major General Soleimani said.
The Iranian commander added, “Afghanistan was a poor country, what the hell could you do in this country that you are currently threatening us?”
“You arrogantly attacked Iraq with 160,000 troops and multiple times [military equipment] compared to what you used in Afghanistan, but what happened? Ask your then commander who was the person that he sent to me and asked ‘Is is possible for you to give us time [and] use your influence so that our soldiers would not be attacked by the Iraqi fighters in these few months until we exit this country?’ Have you forgotten that you provided adult diapers for your soldiers in tanks? Despite that you are currently threatening the great country of Iran? With what background do you threaten [us]?”
“We are near you, where you can’t even imagine. We are the nation of martyrdom, we are the nation of Imam Hossein, you better ask. Come; we are ready. We are the man of this arena. You know that this war would mean annihilation of all your means. You may begin the war, but it is us who will end it,” he said.
In Yemen, Soleimani said, the US-backed coalition of Saudi Arabia and its allies has been incapable of making any gains against the country’s Houthi Ansarullah movement, which is both running state affairs and defending the nation against the Riyadh-led aggression.
“A mere organization is standing against you in Yemen, but it has emerged victorious in the face of the most advanced of your military equipment. What have you achieved over the past four years? You stripped the Red Sea – which used to be a safe sea – of security. You brought under fire Saudi Arabia and [its capital] Riyadh – which had not seen a single rocket fired at them for 100 years.”
The senior general further warned Trump against insulting the Iranian nation and president.
“Trump! You must not threaten our nation and must not insult our president… You must know what you are talking about; ask your predecessors and take advantage of their experiences,” General Soleimani emphasized.
The senior military official also censured the US for supporting the most hated anti-Iran terror group, called the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO), saying Washington failed to achieve anything by doing so.
The commander of the IRGC’s Quds Force said, “America had some grandeur in the past [and] when its fleet moved out, a nation fell apart. Have you now become attached to the Monafeqeen, who have been thrown in the trash bin of Iran’s history? You have become attached to a vagrant woman, and show her in all [your news] networks; is your hope pinned on this? Is this all your power? You are aware of our power in the region and capability for [launching] asymmetrical war?”
God bless Major General Qassem Soleimani, he speaks the truth.
He said it as it is. However, this does not mean that Trump will not be forced by the neocons to do something foolish. Today I read an article in RT, which quoted the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, that the US might attack Iran in August. It’s not impossible. However, should it happen, then this can only be a limited conventional war, using cruise missiles and perhaps aircraft, as Iran has a powerful military. We shall probably see plenty of theatrics, like when the US attacked Syria. I don’t see the US launching a full scale attack against the country, trying to occupy it.
US Preparing To Bomb Iran’s Nuclear Capabilities As Soon As Next Month: Report.
What Are The Prospects For US War On Iran?
My goodness. That is the best response I’ve ever known! Let’s all contrast his common sense with that of the American whore to the UN. He nailed a bullseye!
He should have said that many Americans still have no healthcare insurance, roads are crumbling and schools are underfunded. All for the sake of ME adventurism. Or “this is why you can’t have nice things.”
The truly scary thing is that our insane “leaders” are well aware that the people know Why they cannot have the needful things — still they continue to blast forth with their crazy war talk, knowing that they do Not speak for so many of us. (Actually, cabaret owners would have more class, because they wouldn’t want to scare away their customers!)
If Mr. Trump really wants a war with Iran that badly I wish he would take his big important self to Iran and challenge General Soleimani to a fight, right in front of the guy’s own house. I believe I know who would get their butt kicked, and afterwards The Loser could “tweet” 20 times about how unfair this one-on-one duel was, and that he lost because the American people that he cares so much about didn’t support him enough, or something…Whaaah, call the whaaambulance.
I heard about the cartoon with a naked Mr. Trump riding a wrecking ball. Unfortunately, this pretty well defines his “style”.
Living in USA you must be aware that Insurance companies (Including Medicare) are not your best friends, and hospitals (that accept Medicare, mostly private), put profit above people.
If you cannot afford the services with cash out of pocket, think how may cost and who is willing to pay.
“I work in the most expensive health care system in the world, and I being asked to do it in third world conditions” Quote
Michele Curtis. M.D. an Onc. Gyn. in Huston
Bob, this is the most insane thing. The country spends trillions$ to murder and rob other people but has no money to medicate its own population not to mention other social programs.
I think this is a twisted kind of justice. For all the misery and pain the US is inflicting in their name.All they have to is revolt countless people did it before.
But thats the problem of the coward
It’s just a words. As i remember, same speech from Iraqi generals just before USA ruined the country.
Yes, of course, Just rambling of empty words from a military commander that doesn’t have an Air-Force or a Navy. There are only two superpowers in the world, that will be like US and Russia. All the rest are minions that get played by the big boys.
You mean, Saddam waiving his shotgun? Well, as we see, the Suleimani is a level headed man and no theatrics here. You are missing the essential things Suleimani said about US begging them to help with taking over Iraq. A rather convenient omission by you and the Napoleon the “couch general”.
To answer the Napoleon. Yes the Iran does not have the hugely equipped military like the countries you mentioned, but if Iran was as weak as you say the Western mercenaries employed by KSA would have been running up and down the Tehran. Just look at Huties for the clues. Who’s missiles do Huties use to sink the KSA’s American made sea and land vessels?
url says plan to bomb Iran.
Yes, well, “they” have plans to bomb all ready for just about everywhere…and plans do not prove desire or intent, but define possibilities.
In the present example perhaps they ought to plan to talk. Persia has been around for long time… Murka not so long…
Is war crime to plan war of aggression … Nuremberg an’ all that stuff.
Yes it is, but first you have to defeat your adversary, then you create and stuff the courts with your own judges before you hang the criminals. Nuremberg was/is an American creation. Many people tried to drag the war criminals for Iraq, and other wars to “International” Court only to see the papers thrown out. The only people accepted were the “pseudo war criminals” like Miloshevich, who got murdered while waiting for his case. The “International Court” kept him for 2+/- years as they could not even cook-up any phony arguments against him. Only to admit 10 years later, that he was not guilty of any crimes. Needless to say that he was surrendered to this Court by the western lackeys in Serbian Government.
With Pompeo running his mouth, Haley blowing smoke at the UN, and Trump tweeting like a 14-year old, the US government appears to be led by a cast of clowns.
They seem to want a war with someone, and they talk the Israeli trash talk against Iran.
Will they dare begin with a long arm air strike, by missiles and strategic bombers?
Trump would. He likes that style of “warfare”. There is no domestic downside for striking Iran. The American public has a long grudge against Iran (rightly or wrongly).
Attacking the nuclear facility sounds interesting until Putin calls up and says Russian technicians are there.
One also wonders if Russia might not “loan” some S-400 units to Iran.
Certainly, if there begins to appear a build up by American forces, Iran will get very strong support from Russia and China.
The question is will this be the act that cracks away part of the EU and splinters NATO?
I would expect Russia to tell their Israeli contacts that, in the event of such an aggression, they would have no choice but to provide S-400 units to Iran; and that could be an efficient deterrent.
I afraid, I have to disagree with you. China will not get involved, period. Neither will Russia. Keep in mind Russia’s 5-th Column is all tied to Israel. So forget the weapons for Iran, unless Iran builds them itself. Here is the clincher, Iran from time to time released some news about their weapon development, but is it real or perceived? Perhaps real.
As a curiosity I am going to venture the statement about Russia’s 20Ton drone, which will likely become 6-th generation plane. This drone is remarkably looking like the American drone, which Iran captured and provided a copy to Russia couple or so of years ago.
So, is Iran that defenseless? Maybe not so, and this is what deep state and Trump do not want to find out first hand, when the aircraft carriers start sinking. Iraq never had that ability, but Iran might.
Wow…you’re on fire!
Your argument is well put. One thing further–let us not forget that the Iranians have a nuclear weapon. It is called Dimona.
I think that the chance that Iran and/or Hezbollah would attempt to breach the nuclear facility in occupied Palestine with a barrage of well placed missiles makes the warmongers a little nervous. There is a tiny glimpse of this in the General statement about losing all you possess if the country is attacked. And, I am aware of Nasrallah speaking of this at least on one occasion.
I think this is a excellent leverage to Shout Out Quietly—i.e.( If I lose, we all lose), and dare them to call your bluff.
Netanyahu and AIPAC are pulling the strings on this one. Trump, Pompeo, and Haley are the marionettes.
Cheers to General Soleimani, very well expressed. The israeli quisling, and neocon, trump is what he said he is. He, trump, is also the public face of likud in pindoland, which is why all the likud assets in the usa, these are the most fanatic of the zionazi-gay colonial establishment in America, why all promote trump ueber alles.
@vot tak. He who pays the bandleader decides what tunes the band will play. Trump’s election campaign was funded by the Yahoo’s friend Adelson; and his re-election campaign will be funded likewise — but only if Trump remains obedient.
The guns of August.
“The guns of August.”
Leave it to Trumptards, they will try to convince you their illiterate commander in chief is playing multi-dimensional chess on the grand chessboard one tweet at a time. According to deplorables, widening the deficit, collapsing the United States fiscal base and creating an untractable debt trap (leaving the United States defenseless to intl’ hedge fund hyenas and globalist financial parasites) is what isolationist genius chess move are made of. How the mighty have fallen.
In the same vein, other idiots thinks he’s executing an energy dominance strategy. when in reality Trump is a moron who already sold millions of barrels of the USSPR (US strategic oil reserves) off at a loss, when he could have waited a couple months and scored a US$ 20.00 per bbl premium. So let’s recap, Mr Art of the deal presumably knew what was to come with regards to confrontation with Iran and went ahead with the sale of usspr at a loss… Tillerson was right Tump is a moron. It’s hard to believe how stupid deplorables can be, they deserve everything that’s coming.
I remember GW Bush did the same – back in early 2000s – he waited until they invaded Iraq for oil price to skyrocket and then they decided to fill up the national reserve (they could have done it a few weeks before when oil was much cheaper)
Sol, the good question to ask would be: “Who benefits, at the US-taxpayer cost”. Perhaps the ones who benefit are the same who supported Trump in the election? Oh right, lets blame it on Russia and evil-Putin, never mind who really benefits.
May I suggest that Major General Soleimani, reads this article by Isreal Shamir about Trump. It may help his understanding.
( I have been trying to work out Trump for ages too)
This is seriously worth reading, and maybe even translating.
I read suggested article, Tony. It is still written from a US-centered perspective´and thus its argumentation moves in a wrong direction. That days of former glory and unconditional dictate by a clique of psychopaths masked as humanity-lovers are over. Empathy is the right word here. The true one. Think like Russians and Chinese do. They know very well that Trump plays for some additional time while being uncertain as to whether to attack, who and when. This time Russia and China are ready for the West, if it chooses a warpath. What,s more, they are hot and keen to engage the adversary who publicly flexes its muscles in and by media, but lacks inner strength and determination.
I am waiting for this moment and when Zionited States of America starts bombing Iran, i would highly appreciate it if the Iranians start using the S300 delivered to them. lets see how many zionist bombers will fall from the sky. finally, the russian weapon will be judged on its real time performance.
I don’t think there will be a war with Iran(much less Russia or China), Americans are too cowardly for that, sure they are ‘brave’ when they think they have an absolute advantage(ex: dropping bombs on people who don’t have the means to bring down planes), but as soon as they realize the other side can shoot back, that ‘bravery’ disappears.
It’s much more likely Washington will try to negotiate and get something in return for pulling their troops back and going home.These threats also serve that purpose, to improve their position in negotiations.On the other hand if they actually do start a war, they will be spending their wealth,resources/equipment and the lives of their soldiers, and in the event they lose the war they will be going home empty handed – all costs, no gains.
He should have add that in the event of an armed conflict he would be in the line of fire while the clown in chief would be behind Melania’s skirt.
What is all this nonsense about? Grovelling Aussie administration toadies to boot??
Remember “Little Rocket Man”? This is just a ramp up in rhetoric from Trump to raise the stakes and try to gain some leverage before he cuts another deal. Trump’s base do not want another war and he has important elections to win in 2018 and 2020.
I am not sure the situation is the same here. In the other case Russia and China applied huge pressure on DPRK as they to not want any nuclear explosions near their territory, which would lay waste to a lot of land and put many people at risk. Iran does not border with either one (OK there is a Caspian Sea between Russia and Iran), and though the danger of radiation fallout is there it’s not the same. The fallout would depend on prevailing winds. Still no one wants the risk of deadly pollution.
Iran is not Iraq.
And what did the US acheive in Iraq?
Yes, they murdered and massacred their way across the length and breadth of Iraq, but what did they acheive?
The US can never, and will never emerge victorious from any military confrontation with the Islamic Republic.
Empty words. Russians will not protect main competitors. They will rather support proxy creation between Iran and Saudis where their products will become worldwide finite elements bringing their shareholders more money and power. They are just waiting for pipes to China and Europe to be finished. It is only the time factor for anglosaxonic financial elites to start war before russian ties with Chinese and Europeans a tighten. Russians have central bank, they are the part of Family ranking system. They are fighting and managing everything for peace of cake. Russian “pretenders” have so much of wealth that they dont need war problems. Clients before allies. New “protective” weapons paied by russian people will be used “only” for protection of their parcels. These are not offensive, but defensive weapons as Putin sad it so many times. They can not sell to people what corporative fascist powers are selling to westerners, so 51% is still formaly in a hands of government. Lenin stiil lies on Red Square as a joke with a role to stop any new revolution. However this administration in my opinion is primarly of their clients, not russian people. Capital like ideology has only international interests. They dont care to much for Russians in neighbouring countries and why they would than about Iranians. Otherwise Ukro nacists would be gone a long time ago when they become broke. From that time on even hard core “Ukrainians” are waiting russian money to come. However they dont need them, so they are very happy with a announcements. They are almost begging Americans not to provoke nothing while doing business. With a new army systems they dont care for a deep lines of defense if they can pay “tax” to family shareholders for a running their own bussines, acknowledging their primat. Everything is just a show, scam filter to buy “pipe time”. Putin is sending Lavrov and Gerasimov to calm down Israelis, just acting as a good policeman.
Lets see this time, is “administrator” satisfied with an answer.
The tweet came after President Rouhani warned the US against its hostile approach against Iran, saying America should know that peace with Iran will be the mother of all peace while war with the country will be the mother of all wars.
So who is making threats that they can’t backup???
I’m NOT optimistic.
How great Iran’s might may be, how brilliant their army and splendid their history, the moment the Americans start bombing with their inter continentals, Iran is over.
It’s of none of the aggressor’s interest what’s left of this great country. Just that it is not longer there, just that’s it is no longer -in any way- a factor in the region, is enough to set out the goals of the highest political echelon of the neo-liberal finance. In more or less the same way they bombed the Japanese cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Not to gain something locally, just to set up an “abstract” (!) deterrent-symbol to Russia was enough.
If there is interest in the oil, they wait some years before they go in, or will operate the way they explore the moon and mars: with robots to drill, pump and export all what they lust for.
And indeed thereby Russia and China cannot do anything to ward off such a fait accompli.
Thereby don’t forget the USA doesn’t have any longer the equipment, and therefor refinement to fight a war in another way ánd… this unrealistic, unexpected, out-of-the-box strategy is the way that Israel the real master of this upcoming catastrophe won all his battles.
May The Highest Power help the poor Iranians.
If ICBMs are released, then where are they aimed at? I would Russia and China to respond immediately with the same. And we are all finished.
In addition to my earlier post, the Iranians should speak out very clear ánd very loud to Israel and the USA that they too have a Samson Option, or Doomday weapon in case the catastrophic scenario as I described earlier is executed.
The present stage of North American exceptionalist power is deeply tragic. It commits suicide with sure gusto. I from a vast family of Netherlanders and Americans, many of them have been massacred, seemingly with great pleasure.
I don’t think Iran has a chance in a military confrontation with the US. First, Russia or China will not intervene for Iran and get in a hot war with the US/NATO
IMHO you are mistaken.
Once the strait of hormuz is closed and mined.
And oil rigs in surrounding cheikhdoms are destroyed.
Then all bet are off.
As for Russians they already signaled their red line.
Syria and Ukraine.
Iran is way beyond such red line.
US war on Iran is one war too far in a very unstable global geopolitical order.
My Naval specialty was Mine Warfare, one of the best things about MW is that you don’t have to lay a minefield, just declare that you have. Shipping insurance then becomes so expensive that you effectively close the declared minefield. The mine is a wonderfully cheap and nasty weapon. And it can never be cleared 100%. The Russian Federation has a reasonable MW capability. The US and Allies – almost none.
Despite talk of Iran’s military power, especially its ballistic missiles, the fact is that Iran is militarily weak. In particular, Iran lacks an adequate air force and air defense system. A week-long American bombing campaign would inflict considerable damage on Iran’s military and economic infrastructure. Iran does not have a direct retaliatory power against the US. Iran’s missiles and its much talked about speed boats are no much for American tremendous power at sea or in the air.
Now, tell me: Why would Russia want to get involved in a hot war against the US to defend a losing country like Iran. Let’s be honest, the Russians are smart people/politicians. Why would be to the benefit of Russia to defend Iran?
Russia always calculates her soft underbelly of many nations as a gateway for invasion or terrorist operations.
So, that reason, plus oil, gas, a market for Russian exports, the use of Iranian airfields, the opening up of landlocked Caspian by Iranian canal are just a few strategic reason why Russia would not fight for Iran but help her.
Iran is part of EAEU, close to full membership in SCO and they have a long history of a thousand years of varying relationships.
Witness the Soviet takeover of northern Iran in WW II.
The two trump cards (pardon the word in this context) the Iranians have both begin with the letter H:
–Hormuz. This will be shut down and easily done. Even the verbal statement that it has been mined with send western economies plummeting.
–Hezbollah. Any serious attack on their Iranian benefactors will see a do or die missile attack on Israel lasting weeks. No one knows what sort of missiles they have at this point and if they can hit Dimona its WW III.
Same reason USrael is supplying the UkoNazis.
There is only one difference, Ukraine is of little strategic significance and even less so, after completion of North Stream.
Russia and China are not expected to bleed for Iran. They will be more than happy to help their strategic foe, the county that supports their Color Revolutionaries, get entangled in its final war of aggression.
As you noticed, Trump capitulated against E.U. trade war retaliation. The latter was given the trump card (so to speak), by USrael breech of JCPOA treaty, enabling E.U. to block US payments via (in Belgium headquartered) S.W.I.F.T. No doubt, they used that ace-card to have Trump but his own gluteal region.
Be cautious, be very cautious.
when hot war starts, it will not be only iranians fightin. hezboolah will join attacking parts of israel and other proxy shiite/alawite militants from Syria will reinforce with captured western weapons. iran proxy troops in iraq will attack americans wherever they find them . they will attack american bases in the region. and Assad may join in the fray to get back Golan. and if america opts for the nuclear solution once its tomahawks and bombers are no match against the S300 and the pantzirs, Russia and China will be forced to intervene. and america with its stupidity will push the nuclear button when israel will be rained with missiles from outside. just my opinion.
That scenario where Russia gets involved against the US will never happen. I really mean it: NEVER will be a hot war between US and Russia. Matter of fact, the entire show of US sanctions are a big setup against the EU and China and a service/help for Russia to develop itself to world standards. Behind the close doors and in the backrooms the US and Russia collaborates of how to handle the sanctions.
Can you see that with every new wave of new sanctions Russia economy gets stronger and stronger? – What’s that all about? – Can you see how Trump handled the North Stream 2? – He’s opposing right in the face of the whole world and offering the US’s LNG at 3x price instead just to entice the EU to go ahead and build it together with RF. That’s a game of poker-bluffing to make sure RF gets it and the EU get deeper in the hole and dependent on RU. Actually the NS2 will boost the gas price that goes to China. So even the Chinese gets screwed while Russia gets helped. All is a game played by the superpowers against the rest of the world.
the hot war scenario is a given. yes you are absolutely right that NEVER will there be a hot war between Russia and US. why? because first of all, the american war planners are full aware that when push comes to shove, russian advance weaponry that are now operational will be used and admittedly they don’t have anything to respond. second, the americans are well known for their bluff and cowardice. they will only fight those who cannot defend themselves! but granted hubris and stupidity rings with the american bravado to start one, i don’t think the iranians won’t give them a good fight. yes the iranians will suffer but defeat is farfetched if nuclear option is off the table. as what the iranian general already said, “they will lose what they own”. so if the americans can’t beat the iranians by conventional means which suely they won’t, the stupid Zionists will push the nuclear button when Israel will be attacked in all directions. for whom this war is, if there will be? sure this is for the glory of israel. and this is what the common american still doesn’t understand. unlike during the vietnam days when ordinary people are very much concerned, the americans nowadays are just enjoying their pop corn in front of their tvs doing nothing.
@Napoleon-1812. An ingenious deduction from a false premise: the MSM fiction that POTUS is in collusion with Putin. Actually, the POTUS is throwing his bulky weight against a Ju-Jitzu expert, and finding himself floored every time. I look forward to further arguments along this line: that Napoleon was in collusion with the Czar, and Hitler in collusion with Stalin, both intending to make Russia stronger.
“Who is my best partner? My strongest enemy, because what does not kill me makes me only stronger”. — Nietzsche
Never seems to me an awfully long word — especially if written all in upper case.
« Matter of fact, the entire show of US sanctions are a big setup against the EU and China and a service/help for Russia to develop itself to world standards. Behind the close doors and in the backrooms the US and Russia collaborates of how to handle the sanctions. »
Very interesting point of view; one, however, completely void of supportive evidence. How can you be so absolute sure? Were you present in the “close doors” negotiations? Unless you support your statements with some evidence, I would kindly ask to refrain from pontificating dogmatic positions. You are only dragging the quality of the discussions down.
Iran would mine the straights of Hormuz, rain missiles down on the Gulf States and their oil and gas facilities and launch vicious terrorist attacks against US and Israeli personnel and bases worldwide. Iran could also send its suicide bombers to the US mainland, armed with chemical weapons. The US can be brought to its knees in anguish and rage with only a small spoonful of its own medicine. If the United States uses nuclear weapons on Iran’s civilian population the entire world will turn on them.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
‘My name is Ozymandias, king of kings;
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!’
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
A most apposite poem in this case, from Shelley.
You would do well to quote the first line, too:
‘I met a traveller from an antique land,’
The ‘antique land’ Shelley refers to could well be Mesopotamia, Persia or Palestine (or even Mars) – civilisations that have been in existence for thousands of years.
Such hubris from the USA – around for just a couple of hundred years in a recognisable form – that passes for ‘world leadership.’ They ought to read that poem, and think on, very hard.
Speaking sense, truth and reason to the senseless, lying and irrational……
This can only end well…..
Thumb out, hoping for a ride off this rock.
Translation: We will die on our feet before we will live on our knees!
They know the USA will kill them all anyway so why not go out with a bang? These are not fatalistic people who wish for death but if they are going to die it will be on their terms and nobody else’s.
“You arrogantly attacked Iraq with 160,000 troops and multiple times [military equipment] compared to what you used in Afghanistan, but what happened? Ask your then commander who was the person that he sent to me and asked ‘Is is possible for you to give us time [and] use your influence so that our soldiers would not be attacked by the Iraqi fighters in these few months until we exit this country?’ Have you forgotten that you provided adult diapers for your soldiers in tanks?”
Is this actually true?
I wouldn’t be surprised.
But if it’s true, it would be absolutely hilarious that America’s vaunted stormtroopers needed adult diapers while riding around in their tanks.
Of course it is actually true.
Actually I looked at the stats of both “Desert Storms 1990’s and 2003” and the amount of Soldiers on both sides is claimed to be huge, nearing millions on both sides. Interestingly enough, Iraq losses were not as big and advertised, while the “coalition” losses much greater than advertised. What’s new. You can just look up Wikipedia or other sources if you want. Coalition took many months to get ready for that, so I do not see Aug.15th as a real date, just a hoax.
Apparently the kool-aid isn’t working well enough:
More than half of Americans oppose US declaring war on Iran – poll
“The majority of Americans would prefer to stay away from military conflict with Iran as tensions mount between Washington and Tehran, a poll has revealed. However, most think the US President would be tempted to start it.
Just 23 percent of the respondents of a HuffPost/YouGov survey, published on Friday, approved the idea of the US going to war with Iran. The number of opponents, on the other hand, is more than doubled – 53 percent do not support such a scenario, including 37 percent of “strongly opposed” respondents. The remaining quarter of the surveyed was undecided. Most of the more hawkish respondents were found to be Trump’s campaign supporters.
Despite the fact that most Americans agree with Trump that Iran is no friend to the US, they are not supportive of his hawkish approach to their countries’ relations, according to the survey. Some 43 percent were found in opposition to the US leader’s handling of issues related to Iran, while 36 present supported him. Moreover, more than a third think Trump’s actions only worsen the already strained situation.”
This represents a major failing of the zionazi-gay psywar machinery (western media), israel’s quisling trump regime gofers’ handling of public relations and last, and definitely least, the pathetic kool-aid guzzling “trump supporters”.
I mean, seriously, you lot are sad. You can’t even get americans to cheer america fighting another war for greater israel.
good enough that the americans reacted with a poll. but it’s just a poll. the zionists don’t respect polls. the thing is australia leaked this “rumoured” planned attack in the future and sounded the alarm indicates that like canada and new zealand, she may be reluctant to be dragged in a war israel will only benefits. yes, the poll is sending a loud message to the politicians but organised peaceful marches sound louder. Gen. Solimani already invited them to come and they are waiting…
we’ll see how long the waiting lasts.
Time for the neo-tards to throw the gentiles in the 911/falseflag/psyop well again. Then a new crop of Pat Tillman’s will be willing to die for Greater Israel.
To quote Sasha Baron Cohen:
“Throw the gentiles in the well so my country can be free. You must grab them by their money. Then we’ll have a big 911 party.”
Turning up the heat on rhetoric. The war of words is part of psy-ops. In a real war who knows what will happen? Lots of dead bodies, more damage to an already fragile environment, further decline of democracy in America, and a global slide to fascism.
I seem to recall an Iranian scientist by the name of Keshe. Discovered a new technology that has a deleterous effect on electrical systems similar to an EMP. Not too many years ago the Iranians forced down an American high-tech drone, stripped it down and sent it to Russia. Any nation that can do THAT, and build it’s own missiles and warships has a competent engineering faculty. I hope the Iranians have S300’s plus home-grown AA missiles, that should blunt the neo-con ardour somewhat. Regarding carrier battle groups I would remind you of the curious case of the USS Donald Cook and USS John S McCain that suddenly went dead in the water, and no-one seems to want to explain why….the next neo-con wet dream may end with an awful lot of bloated corpses washing ashore in the Gulf and they may not be of Iranian origin. Pindostan needs to wake up and engage, they are being played as puppets by Benji&Co…..
Iran completely abandoned the dollar. (+ Video)
Iran bans using U.S. dollar as a base
Iran banned import transactions in US dollars, Press TV channel reported on its YouTube channel. Customs authorities of the country will not process declarations or orders for the import of goods in the event that transactions use the dollar.
Importers can replace the dollar with the euro or the national currencies of the countries with which trade is conducted. The Central Bank of the country states that there will be no disruptions in international transactions, since even now the dollar is used for a small percentage of foreign trade operations. This is written by Forbes.
As the newspaper notes, the use of the euro can lead to an increase in the costs of importers due to the double currency exchange.
One of the reasons for limiting the use of the dollar is the continuing fall of the rial. Since the beginning of the year, the Iranian currency has fallen in price by 8 percent, despite the fact that in 2017 its rate fell. The ban on dollar imports should reduce the demand for dollars inside the Islamic Republic.
In November, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, said that cooperation between Tehran and Moscow would help isolate the United States. According to him, one of the elements of this strategy may be the refusal to use the dollar.
