UPDATED 3:43 PM EST -- Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant told the Mayor of Haifa, Israel today "the war with Hezbollah will start soon, and that is why we have sent a large number of army soldiers of this regime to the northern borders ."
Gallant made clear "Our patience with Hezbollah is coming to an end."
Gallant told troops near the border with the besieged Gaza Strip that others were being deployed to Israel's north.
"They will very soon go into action... so the forces in the north are reinforced," Gallant said.
"The forces close to you... are leaving the field and moving towards the north, and preparing for what comes next," he said.
(HT REMARK: "Pride goeth before a fall.")
UPDATE 3:43 PM EST --
Israel Ministry of Justice in an official letter to its employees: “In the event of a full-scale war in the north - prepare for the possibility of a nationwide blackout where at least 60% of the population will be without electricity for at least 24 hours, and there will be disruptions in communication, internet, and telephone.” They are openly telling their employees have EMERGENCY FOOD, WATER, MEDICINES, and how to prepare food spoiling in freezers! Ministry of Justice: "This is a refinement of existing guidelines and not special preparation."

UPDATE 4:39 PM EST
Confirmed: a squadron of F-35 aircraft and all branches of US missile shields, with a range extending to Cyprus, have been mobilized. The Americans have announced the mobilization of all their forces in the region.
Hal Turner Analysis
The only possible justification for this is that not only is the US going to strike back for the attacks which killed 3 soldiers over this past weekend, Israel is likely to unleash full scale war upon Hezbollah in Lebanon and the US knows Hezbollah can unleash 100,000 missiles. The US also knows Hezbollah (and perhaps Iran) will move aggressively to hit all US bases throughout the entire Middle East, including the British base on Cyprus.
WORST CASE: They move to hit Iran as well, and if they hit Iran territory, it's instant, all-out, war.
For the US to PUBLICLY declare a full scale mobilization of Middle East forces is astonishing. When this goes HOT . . . . TSHTF
UPDATE 5:48 PM EST --
Washington has sent messages to the Islamic Republic of Iran through the US interests section at the Swiss Embassy in Tehran, asking Iran not to retaliate after the anticipated US attacks.
Iran warned the United States: "if there is even the slightest attack on Iranian soil, with or without human casualties, Iran will respond with force to the US militarily."
UPDATE 7:54 PM EST --
The White House confirms "President Biden HAS decided on how he will respond to the attacks which killed three US Soldiers."
So. . . the decision __is__ made.
Now, it seems all we can do is wait until things start being blown up in the Middle East; because from all indications, THAT is what is coming, courtesy of the United States armed forces. Perhaps within hours.
The Pentagon just confirmed they are "moving ahead" with retaliation ordered by the President.
UPDATE 8:02 PM EST --
Iran has brought its army - and specifically the AIR DEFENSE forces across the country - to maximum combat readiness.
Folks, not to put too fine a point on this . . . you simply DO NOT get this kind of in-depth coverage, up-to-the-minute, factually accurate information from the mass-media. You get it here. PLEASE support this endeavor with a few bucks donation for the monthly fund-raising, below. Even though you may see the "Goal" met, that's just for actual operating costs; it does not include upgrades I HOPE to make, like a $2500 Phased-Array antenna for a StarLink connection. So any extra, gets used for good purposes!
JANUARY-into-FEBRUARY 2024 Fund Raising
The last week of each Calendar Month, this endeavor asks readers of the site, and listeners to the show, to make donations to help keep this radio show and web site alive.
The show has NO PAYING ADVERTISERS, by design. Advertisers don't like controversy, and nowadays, the truth is controversial. Unlike Commercial Radio, which relies on ad revenue, and thereby limits what can be discussed so as not to trouble advertisers, (or face boycotts) THIS show allows full, free, and open speech.
Unlike the legacy media, this radio show and web site cover the ACTUAL news; not some "narrative" that the government or corporations want "spun." That's why you get reporting like you see above here, but not on the old legacy media! Here, you get the facts!
But it costs a lot of money to do that, and I have to reach out to YOU each month, for a little help.
