Oh What a Lovely New War! False Flagging in the Middle East?

Philip Giraldi
May 9, 2021

There has been virtually no American media coverage of last week’s arrival of a senior Israeli delegation in Washington to discuss Iran. The delegation included the head of the Israeli external intelligence service Mossad Yossi Cohen and Israel’s National Security Advisor Meir Ben-Shabbat. Their itinerary included briefings at the Pentagon and also with national security and State Department officials at the White House. Read More

Russia’s Policy of Peace is Encouraging War

The author of this article argues that Putin, far from defending his Iranian ally against the US and Israel, is turning a blind eye to US and Israeli attacks on Iranian interests in Syria. This will soon give the US and Israeli warmongers, he suggests, the confidence to launch a full-scale attack on Iran itself and attempt to drive Hezbollah out of Lebanon. Result: game, set and match to Israel. Is this assessment correct, and is Putin secretly in cahoots with the US and Israel?  DISCUSS.

According to Paul Craig Roberts, Russia is failing to protect Iran’s interests in Syria. The Israelis want to drive Iranian forces protecting Syria out of Syria and they also want to drive Hezbollah out of Lebanon. The result would be the first steps to a Greater Israel in the Middle East.

Uncle Sam Scapegoats Iran

By Finian Cunningham
September 18, 2019

Following the devastating airstrikes on Saudi Arabia’s oil industry, US Vice President Mike Pence flexed his tough-talking muscles, vowing that his country is “ready to defend our interests and allies… make no mistake about it.”

Don’t you think the assurance is a bit late? Saudi Arabia – a historic and key ally of Washington – had its entire oil production knocked out by 50 per cent last weekend when it came under aerial attack. Global markets were rattled over possible critical fuel shortages as the world’s biggest exporter of crude oil might not recover full production for weeks. Read More

Trump Is Being Set-up for War with Iran


Trump destroyed his chance at being a successful president by the stupid appointments he has made.  At the moment he is being set up by his national security advisor John Bolton and Israel for a war with Iran.


“Today the Jews rule the world by proxy.
They get others to fight and die for them.”

—  Mahathir bin Mohamad, former Prime Minister of Malaysia 

Using the same format of lies that was used against Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Venezuela, JOHN BOLTON (pictured) has accused Iran of “troubling and escalatory indications” of a forthcoming Iranian attack on American forces in the Middle East.  To help protect against the attack, Bolton has ordered Patriot missile batteries, an aircraft carrier strike group, and a bomber strike force to the region.

WHITE HOUSE INSIDER: ‘Trump Plans to nuke Iran and wipe it off the map’

According to a whistleblower in the White House, a deadly war with Iran involving tactical nukes and a ground invasion is planned for this coming Fall by Donald Trump, i.e. 4-5 months from now. This is because Donald is bored with golf and wants to play “soldiers”.  

Israel Today News

DONALD  TRUMP  (thought bubble):
“I’m doing this for Israel . . . a Hanukhah present for Bibi and Jared.”

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.”  Read More

Scapegoating Iran

By Chris Hedges

June 17, 2018 “Information Clearing House” –  NEW YORK—Seventeen years of war in the Middle East and what do we have to show for it? Iraq after our 2003 invasion and occupation is no longer a unified country. Its once modern infrastructure is largely destroyed, and the nation has fractured into warring enclaves. We have lost the war in Afghanistan. The Taliban is resurgent and has a presence in over 70 percent of the country. Libya is a failed state. Yemen after three years of relentless airstrikes and a blockade is enduring one of the world’s worst humanitarian disasters. Read More

Donald Trump, Israel’s Puppet


‘Trump Bows to Neocons, Netanyahu’
(October 21, 2017)

Rather than expand US exports to Iran–and create more American jobs–President Trump fell in line behind Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, decertifying the Iran-nuclear deal and risking more war, as Gareth Porter explains at The American Conservative.

President Donald Trump’s new Iran policy clearly represents a dangerous rejection of diplomacy in favor of confrontation. But it’s more than that: It’s a major shift toward a much closer alignment of US policy with that of the Israeli government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Read More

Panic in Tel Aviv: Is Netanyahu losing it? (Part 1)

PART 1 : Will Israel start a new war?


With brief notes and comments by Lasha Darkmoon

“It is time to say ‘No’ when Israel comes knocking.”
— Philip Giraldi

When politicians are feeling the heat, they start a war and their popularity goes up even if the war is unnecessary or completely ridiculous. Donald Trump, the presidential candidate who promised that he would not take the nation into another Middle Eastern war, did so when he launched a fifty-nine cruise missile barrage against a Syrian Air Base even before he knew for sure what had happened on the ground. It was totally stupid but proved to be popular, even among talking heads and Congressmen, some of whom described his action as “presidential” in the best sense of the word. Read More

Is the Iran nuke deal aimed at crushing Putin?

. . . by Mike Whitney

Iran-Nuclear-Deal“Iran is not going to sell out Russia. It’s not going to knife a friend in the back. That’s just not going to happen…. There’s a new world emerging and Iran is going to be part of it.” — Mike Whitney 

This is an excellent article that explains clearly why the US cut a deal with Iran over the nuclear issue : to punish and bring Russia to its knees. According to Mike Whitney, this is “just not going to happen.” (LD) Read More

Nasrallah praises Iran, trashes Israel as ultimate terrorist state

Comparing Israel to a “cancerous tumour”, Hezbollah leader Nasrallah praises Iran for refusing to recognize Israel’s “right to exist”.

This transcript of a recent speech by Hassan Nasrallah comes from this source. The translation is so bad and repetitive, however, that I have felt the need to edit and abbreviate the text slightly in the interests of clarity. (Lasha Darkmoon) 


“Israel is terrorism in essence, the source of all terrorism in the Middle East!” — Hassan Nasrallah

During a recent conference of the Israeli High Command, the impudence of the Israelis went so far as to call for an Arab-Israeli alliance to confront terrorism. Imagine that! Israel calling for an Arab-Israeli alliance to confront Israeli terrorism! Read More
