    The situation in the Middle East with Iran looks like it is beginning to escalate. Iran is being backed into a corner at the moment, with economic pressure from the US bearing down on the Iranian regime, with its own people beginning to suffer the effects, Iran will either capitulate or lash out. I’m picking they will lash out as they are crazy enough to do something stupid. They may attack Israel or US bases in the Middle East, it looks like from this article below that it is already beginning.

    Well, or someone else over there is scheming to push Iran in front of the train in hope of getting away with it.

    Let´s not forget the Lavon affair for example:

    The Lavon affair was a failed Israeli covert operation, codenamed Operation Susannah, conducted in Egypt in the summer of 1954. As part of the false flag operation, a group of Egyptian Jews were recruited by Israeli military intelligence to plant bombs inside Egyptian-, American-, and British-owned civilian targets: cinemas, libraries and American educational centers. The bombs were timed to detonate several hours after closing time. The attacks were to be blamed on the Muslim Brotherhood, Egyptian Communists, “unspecified malcontents” or “local nationalists” with the aim of creating a climate of sufficient violence and instability

    Russia is not a fire brigade’: Putin warns he cannot ‘rescue everything’ in wake of global nuclear deal with Iran falling apart as tension escalates between arch-rivals Tehran and Washington

    President Vladimir Putin warned Washington that Russia was not ‘a fire brigade’ and could not ‘rescue everything’ as tension rise between the US and Iran.

    Tensions have sharply escalated between arch-rivals Washington and Tehran since US President Donald Trump withdrew last year from the Iran nuclear deal which removed sanctions in exchange for curbs on Iran’s nuclear programme.

    Putin spoke to reporters after hosting US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in the Black Sea resort of Sochi on Tuesday for the highest-level bilateral talks in nearly a year.

    ‘We regret that the deal is falling apart,’ Putin said following talks with Austrian President Alexander van der Bellen on Wednesday.

    ‘After the signing of the agreement Iran was and still is the world’s most verifiable and transparent country in this sense.’

    ‘Iran is fulfilling all of its obligations,’ said Putin, citing the International Atomic Energy Agency.

    He urged Iran not to quit the 2015 agreement but added there was only so much Moscow could do.

    ‘Russia is not a fire brigade,’ Putin said.

    ‘We cannot rescue everything that does not fully depend on us. We’ve played our part.’

    Putin also said that after Washington’s withdrawal Europe could do ‘nothing’ to salvage the deal.

    Earlier Wednesday Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov expressed concern that tensions over Iran escalated despite assurances from Pompeo that Washington was not seeking war.

    “One False-Flag Attack Away From Global Calamity” and the US are parking the carrier USS Abraham Lincoln of all ships right in the Persian Gulf: remember what happened to the original President Lincoln? The headlines would write themselves; never let a great patriotic tragedy go to waste

    The Third Gulf War has Already Begun

    On Monday morning, May 12, 2019, four oil tankers sailing in international waters were attacked as they made their way out of the Straits of Hormuz towards the Indian Ocean. The details of the sabotage are still unclear as these words are being written: who attacked, where they escaped to, how they attacked and how much damage they inflicted. My intuition tells me that Western Intelligence agencies, certainly the American ones, know exactly who attacked and how the sabotage was accomplished.

    The following is information from an alleged whistle-blower / white house insider, of course this scenario can hardly be confirmed at this point in time, but it´s interesting to read and perhaps to be remembered. Could be bogus as well, but it´s probably not too far fetched in this crazy times.

    https://israeltodaynews.blogspot.com/2019/04/iran-war-planned-by-trump-2019.html

    President Donald Trump and his inner circle are planning an extensive invasion of Iran, according to a source working in the White House.

    The plan involves a ground invasion and the use of tactical nuclear weapons, in a campaign planned for the Fall of 2019. Iran will be “wiped off the map” according to the source, and the war effort is expected to cost “two and half times the Iraq War.”

    The war will be promoted by the news media and Trump will go right along with it, after an “expected False Flag pinned on Iran, probably something involving the boats in the Strait of Hormuz.” The False Flag is an “integral part of the plan” as Iran has reportedly no desire or intent to start a war, according to the whistle-blower.

    […]
    Further details have been revealed, including:

    100 tactical nukes will be used to eliminate the Iranian military.
    120,000 U.S. ground troops will be used in the invasion.
    France, the U.K., Canada, Saudi Arabia and Israel are expected to join a “coalition” in support of the war.
    CIA assets and counter-intel efforts have been ramped-up over the past year in preparation.
    A “False Flag” is being prepared to be used before the war with Iran.
    Propaganda is being prepped by White House and Israeli counterparts.
    Israel will support the effort and Benjamin Netanyahu was reportedly “smiling ear to ear” during a recent meeting with John Bolton.
    There are concerns Trump’s “base” may resist or criticize the efforts, so further propaganda efforts are being made to “shore up support” for the war.
    Expected casualties range between 1.2 Million and 2 Million Iranians and 5,000 US troops.

    Due to President Trump’s close relationship with Jared Kushner, a sense of “sober import” has been placed on the war effort, which is being as a fulfillment of “Jewish prophecy” within White House circles. Many in the White House believe Jared Kushner is the “Messiah” or Jewish “Moshiach” who cannot attain his “throne” until Iran is wiped out.

    Apparently the same source claimed and the same news site reported that Trump secretly converted to judaism back in 2017. My two cents on this: perhaps this may be the case, if you count a form of allegiance to the Noahide Laws as such, perhaps Trump made some formal pledge in a kind of ceremony. This would not be that unlikely given his entourage but again, the anonymous source of this specific report is not really verifiable.
