Despite being politely asked for voluntary donations, few people ever bothered to donate.

With tens-of-thousands of people reading stories here every day, the costs nearly drove the site out of business.

3:03 PM EDT -- IRANIAN BACKED MILITIA RELEASE FOOTAGE CLAIMING ATTACK ON US EMBASSY..

Iranian-backed Shiite militia affiliated Aletejah TV release first footage of rocket attack on US Embassy in Baghdad

(Hal Turner Remark: They're now openly admitting it was an Iran-backed attack.  These fools have just sealed their own fate.  Donald J. Trump is not Barack Obama. )

 

 IMAGE

First imagery of US Embassy after Mortar/Rocket attack an hour ago:

3:10 PM EDT -- It is confirmed that IRGC Quds Force was behind the rocket attack at GreenZone of Baghdad during which rockets/Mortars fired by IRGC-backed militias hit in the vicinity of the US Embassy.

IRGC owned Aletejah TV released the first footage of the attack.

 

 3:50 PM EDT -- The rocket launch pad used to launch a rocket against the Green zone in Baghdad tonight targeting the U.S Embassy, was placed on the service road in front of the Technological university in Baghdad.

 

4:38 PM EDT -- I am now able to publicly quote Iraqi army spokesman Maj. Gen. Yahya Rasool: A Katyusha rocket landed near an aircraft museum less than a kilometer from the American embassy. According to Arab sources, the area is controlled by Shi'ite militias supporting Iran. 

 

@realDonaldTrump: If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again.

 

 

7:22 PM EDT -- The Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base in Tehran is on standby for any possible US retaliation for earlier attack in Baghdad.   

(Hal Turner Remark:  Uhhhhh, Gee, if Iran had nothing to do with Mortars and Rockets being fired at our Embassy in Baghdad, then WHY would they put an air defense base on alert for possible retaliation?   Because IRAN DID IT.  They're tacitly admitting it by putting their air defense base on alert.  The US should hit them with a military strike.  Hard.)

 

7:26 PM EDT -- Reports that after a three hour meeting. Assessment is that Tehran directly ordered rocket fire at the Green Zone. 

 

FWIW

All of you saw my appeal above for folks to click an ad if they aren't going to donate, or subscribe, so this site can get a few cents per click to survive. Well, the people coming here are of such character that out of the 15,836 unique visitors who have read this article, 536 clicked an ad. 

536 out of 15,836.

That's what the Bible calls "casting your pearls before SWINE."   Most of the folks coming here to read this coverage are such (#*@$!!! i won't even say it) they won't even click an ad after they take someone else's hard work for free. I'm busting my ass on a Sunday,  to bring important news about Geo-Political events that NO OTHER MEDIA OUTLET is covering, and out of 15,836 unique visitors, only 536 could be bothered to help out.   

I just wanted all of you to know the kind of people most of these visitors actually are.  I'll continue updating this story for awhile and we'll see if things change.  If so, great.  If not, Lockdown.  Subscribers only.  AND the freeloaders will have to wait for someone else to give them something free . . . maybe a few days from now if at all.

    This can also be false flag.

    As u know Uncle Sam is expert in creating False Flag situation be it Vietnam war, egypt war, 9/11, Iraq war so blaming IRAN for all the attack shows you (Robber and looters) just want war to loot and plunder other nations resources.
    If you are so good jesus loving peaceful country then why dont you vacate all your 600+ bases from the planet .

    Shame on you..

    Read below interview of Gen Wesley Clarke Bringing down 7 countries including Iran. Shows all this was planned in advance.

        Hi C Walker,

        me hypocrite..
        President (Donald Trump) can visit Saudi Arabia and dance with the king and sell weapons to this barbaric nation . The same Saudi regime is involved in 9/11 which killed thousands of Americans and you are calling me HYPOCRITE. either you have closed your eyes and ear or could not understand that you innocent citizens are taken for a ride by your evil politicians.

        me Ignorant..

        we all know what is going on is part of NWO's full spectrum dominance. . This is transition from paxBrittania -> pax Americanca -> paxJudaica

        Today is Iran and tomorrow will be uncle sam so very soon you will get what you did to others. You may be ignorant but not me.


        Thanks

          What I did to others? I've done nothing to anybody, and I don't worship government or masters like you do.


          It's hillarious that you don't think Putin does the same to his people! Do you remember when he gassed hundreds of innocent civilians in the Moscow Theater hostage crisis? Bet your blind to it as you're so quick to defend your masters.

            https://www.veteranstoday.com/2019/05/18/america-the-evil-empire/

            FYI..
            Neither I support Putin nor he is my master.

            But I know for sure that Putin is only person on this planet who can bring to end this evil Monster Empire called Uncle Sam .

            Uncle sam has become cancer to this planet and should be eliminated from root otherwise it will finish of this beautiful planet called earth.

    My girlfriend and I are subscribers and we donate extra every month. You'd think some of these cheapskates would be willing to donate some small pittance for the information that they receive. Well the statement that the "masses are asses" seems to be quite true.

    Send Some Money to Hal. It is easy. His mailing address is below. Fold a dollar bill into an 8.5" by 11" sheet of paper. Put it in an envelop. Address it. Send it. That is worth 20 to 50 clicks. Send more than a dollar if you can afford it. You can click also. But send some money.

    "if Iran had nothing to do with Mortars..."
    OR...they know the U.S. is looking for any justification to attack them, and they are being prudent by getting ready. The Persians know that the neo-cons are looking for any justification to attack them, so it makes no sense that they would allow their proxies to do anything to us, or indeed let anything happen which could be justification for an attack.

    Hal, please be patient with people. Your information is vital; things that media worldwide do not report. By cursing them and calling them names, you reduce yourself amd your message. I understand people are frustrating, but you are a sheepdog. Please give them another chance. Try to put the the "click on an ad" at the beginning of the aricle. Perhaps the message is lost as most skim for sound bites. God Bless you Hal.

    Hal, we appreciate your timely and factual reporting. Suicidal criminal middle eastern governments are difficult to deal with, ie the clinton, bush, obama "we will roll over and give you what you want" policies did not work. President Trump knows that in spades. President Trump is very adroit in handling this situation.

    Someone is desperate to start a war with Iran. Any excuse will do, even blaming and figuring out the proof later, because we've never had fake intelligence, right?

      Exactly Jonathan!!!! just recent--Ukraine; Libya, Syria ,Venuzala ,Balkans all "disproven" by groups officially sanctioned--except after the "bombings" and buried below the fold--e.g Christine Lefarge(sp?) then at Amnesty international "Gaddafi straffing /bombing citizens of Bengazi"-no fly zone declared (quess only applied to Libyian AF) NATo drops more bombs than RAF dropped on Germany (incuding Dressdan massacre/genocide?); 6mo after Gaddafi dead/ Christine announces her field troops could only find 26 or 29 "bodies", all wore Libyian uniforms and all were black! guess Australia vote spooked (double entente) them over the edge

    I'm afraid the only way American troops will leave Iraq is when huge numbers of American soldiers come home in flag draped coffins. The Iraqi government wants American troops out of Iraq. Interesting that the State Dept pulled non essential people out two days ago and now this happens. Let's blame it on Iran.
