Soft Coup in Iran; Rouhani sidelined to "Observer" While IRGC Takes Actual Command

9 Comments

Intelligence sources confirm this morning that Iranian President Rouhani has been sidelined by the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC)  after the nuclear deal became viewed as a complete failure.  While Rouhani keeps his title, he is now merely an Observer; with IRGC calling all the shots.   Among their first acts: Informing Iran Proxies they are now free to attack adversaries.

This morning on the east coast of the USA, word arrived that Iran regime has told some of its proxy forces and surrogates that they can now go after military personnel and assets in the region, according to three U.S. officials familiar with the intelligence reports.

The United States has repeatedly made clear to Iran and to the public that any attack by Iranian proxies against US forces, US Bases or those of our allies, will be viewed by the US as an attack by Iran itself.

Despite this, Iran has continued to ship medium range ballistic missile via boats, to put those missiles into positions to attack US forces and those of our allies.  Every effort to get Iran to stand-down has failed.

Washington and London are now officially in "crisis management mode" with military and political leaders on both sides of the Atlantic convinced Iran is about to undertake a serious series of actions.

 

Everyone is prepping for a response to Iran, should Iran do something foolish. The Iranians at this time have NOT stood down their assets and still are in threatening posture.

Pre-emption is a possibility I am told, but as of now there is incredible nervousness in Washington and London with everyone on a hair trigger to hit Iran hard should they carry out acts against allies or allied assets.

Today, all eyes are on a small island near the Strait of Hormuz called Abu Mesa Island.  As of 8:38 AM eastern US time, IRAN IS NOT PULLING BACK FORCES - THERE ARE NUMEROUS MAJOR IRANIAN MILITARY MOVEMENTS TO COMBAT POSITIONS

PROXY MILITIAS ARE BEING RAPIDLY ARMED AND MOVING

We are looking at prep from multiple militia groups and the Iranian military in a sequenced prep. This involves numerous groups including Hezbollah and the Houthi, along with Iranian assets in Iraq.

So as I reported a few days ago, this is a multi pronged attack (IF it happens), from Iraq, Yemen, the Gulf and other locations aimed at US interests and US forces directly.

    Eeeh .......We can pretty well guess that U.S. won't attack first ...... we have placed a bunch of decoys in the pond and are just waiting .......the bait is there and looks pretty inviting ......YUP, and you can pretty well bet that Iran will launch on some ship that looks like a military ship, especially if it looks like a carrier ....... maybe the old Independence will get pushed thru the Strait.

      If you have logged in there is no green box as you scroll the article. There is information below where the green box was. I am looking at the "paid for intel" now. Someone correct me if this is in error.

    Shocking revelations now out that Trump has taken the 'mark of the beast' DNA gene enhancement therapy!!! This is 'fallen angel' hybrid technology and is not good news IMHO. Read the Mark of The Beast prophecies/warnings at hearthelordjesus.com and scroll down for the new Trump revelations.

    Don't worry about false flags. People are just blind to the very clear real flags being waved in their faces. Iran has been at war with the United States since 1979 and the embassy incident; the United States simply hasn't acknowledged the fact.

    Even if it does not involve any invasion or outright combat, the United States should declare that a "state of war exists" between it and Iran. This would mean that any Iranian vessles at sea would be fair game for US warships to sink, for instance. Declaring that there is a war would simply be a far more honest appraisal of the relationship between the United States and Iran.

    Many voices have warned about Iran long ago and we have been told it would come to this. Either Iran needs to be destroyed or it will strike out hard against the United States, period. The only other option would be for the United States successfully to orchestrate an overthrow of the Islamic Republic from within. Obama actually once had an opportunity to do so, but failed utterly to act.

    No false flag or any other pretext is needed. Iran is a dictatorship that cruelly oppresses its own people. It is already morally fair game for invasion, if such would be in the interest of the United States. The fact that we in the west are waiting for more pretext only demonstrates the lack of moral resolve that has overtaken our civilisation.

      By the way, Iran is NOT "a dictatorship". Its government is democratically elected. Virtually nothing you posted is accurate. What is your goal?

        What is my goal, Frank? My goal is just to discuss these matters with other people who are interested.

        That a particular body of men is elected to form a government does not necessarily mean that the country it rules is not a dictatorship. The democratic process is not an end in itself. It can only be defended to the extent that it serves to protect the individual freedom of the people living within that country. The kind of democracy that gives a government powers that people individually do not have and which gives a government licence to initiate the use of force against people is a dictatorship. People in Iran or any other dictatorship have no recourse to law or justice when the government imposes arbitrary restrictions or compels people to action.

        EVERYTHING I post is accurate.

          You wrote, " The kind of democracy that gives a government powers that people individually do not have and which gives a government licence to initiate the use of force against people is a dictatorship."

          That's a very concise description of the current government of the United States, is it not?

            Yes, in many ways. Europe is even worse. And to that extent those policies should be opposed.

            I discussed, however, in an earlier post that there is a difference between a country that respects individual rights in principle, even though it may be imperfect in their application, and a country that shamelessly flouts the very notion of individual freedom and where the state is the end to which the individual is simply the means. That is why is it morally defensible for a western country to invade a dictatorship, if it is in the interest of the freer country to do so. On the other hand, I don't think it is a duty of a free country to go and liberate every country under dictatorship.

            Beyond that, the waddaboutism would just be a distraction. Frankly, I don't think that the fact the United States isn't perfect gives all the slave-pen countries a pass.

      You skipped a step. Actually the U.S. has been at war with Iran since 1953 when it overthrew the democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh and installed a U.S. puppet, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi (the so-called Shah of Iran) in "Operation Ajax". This was the first (but, unfortunately, no means the last) U.S. covert action to overthrow a foreign government during peacetime. Washington, not Iran, started this party.

        Interesting that you should point out that I skipped a step, since it is common for US-bashers to point out Mosaddegh. However, the Mosaddegh story is actually chapter two. Do you know what happened before?

          Yes, do you?

            Paul Lambert · 7 months ago
            Yes, so it would really just come down to whether or not you agree that such justified Mosaddegh (or as I learned to spell it Moussadeq) having been removed from power. I presume you don't. I am not really going to argue that here. Regardless of what you think of that, the point remains that Iran and the United States were not at war or even add odds between 1953 and 1979, were they? Since 1979 they have been for sure.

              Inasmuch as the Shah was a U.S. puppet, of course Iran and the U.S. were not at war. He was reliably obeying his Washington masters.

                Ok, so you take back the "since 1953" part at any rate, right?

    So, what will the false flag be to get this all started? I can only speculate that Russia, North Korea, China, Turkey and India would become involved it Iran is attacked first.

    If all eyes are on Abu Musa, then where are they really going to hit us? Something on the homefront?
