The US prepares for confrontation with Iranian-backed militias in Iraq while Iran struggles to cope with the consequences of the coronavirus inside its borders. This looks like a good time for Americans to strike – but it isn’t.
While both the US and Iran are battling coronavirus, belligerent words haven’t been forgotten. President Donald Trump claimed Iran could be planning an attack on US forces in Iraq and warned it would pay a “very heavy price.”
On April 5, a series of large explosions rocked the village of al-Kastan in southwestern Idlib injuring 8 people, including 3 members of the so-called White Helmets. According to local sources, an ammunition depot located in the civilian area inside the city became the source of the explosion...
It’s believed that a US-Iran war would disrupt the flow of Middle Eastern oil and, as such, should be avoided at all costs. With US oil futures trading in the negative, has the risk of such a war suddenly become attractive?
Iran will not hesitate to retaliate against the US Navy if it attacks any Iranian vessel, Tehran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) commander has warned, responding to a similar threat by Trump.
“I have ordered our naval forces to destroy any American naval force in the Persian Gulf that threatens the security of Iran’s military or non-military ships,” Major-General Hossein Salami said on Thursday, as cited by Tasnim News Agency.
Salami was responding to US President Donald Trump, who said that he had issued an order on Wednesday to “destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea.”
Washington reimposed the sanctions in 2018 after leaving a landmark nuclear deal with Iran despite its ratification by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).
“Coordination of Iran and China can take the region out of the US’ hands” by pushing Washington aside, breaking its sprawling regional network apart, and frustrating its attempts at isolating Tehran, Mohammadi, who is also a member of Iran’s Expediency Council, stated.
The roadmap, therefore, translates into “such defeat for the US, which will be unprecedented in the region,” he added.
The reason the U.K. and U.S. are having so many military equipment problems at the same time Russia and China have developed superior weaponry is because Father (God, The King Ruler of the Universe) is going to use Russia and China ("the kings of the East") to punish the U.K. and U.S. for not keeping The Law He gave us.
Everything that's happening now is the fault of the U.K. and U.S., who have led the rest of the Israelite nations, and the rest of the world, into the worst oppression of all time.
Arm Yourselves and Prepare; China Massing “Tens-of-Thousands” of Troops in Prince Rupert and Vancouver Canada. Invade USA?
Under a Treaty signed in late 2019 with Canada, the People’s Liberation Army of China has been quietly massing military troops in Canada since the beginning of 2020 and those troops are believed to be readying for an actual military invasion of the United States.
While it has long been rumored that China began massing troops and armor in southern Mexico for a similar invasion goal, word of such troops appearing in Canada only began this year. Those rumors were pretty much laughed off until video emerged this week of Chinese troops on a back road of Salt Spring Island, near Vancouver, British Columbia. Here is that 35 second video:
Once actual proof emerged of Chinese troops in Canada, we started digging into where they were in relation to US soil and how such a thing could be given that Canada was _supposed_ to be a U.S. ally?
The map below shows where China is massing the troops in Prince Rupert and on Salt Spring Island, BC, CANADA:
It turns out that the globalist/Commie Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, signed a Treaty with China in late 2019. In January, 2020, the Canadian Independent Press Review reported it as follows:
Under the terms of the Foreign Investment Protection Act (FIPA), a bi-lateral treaty ratified with China by the Trudeau government in 2019, Chinese security forces can be stationed on Canadian soil to protect vital Chinese investments, without the knowledge or consent of local authorities. – Canadian Independent Press Review, January 15, 2020
One has to ask why Prime Minister Trudeau would sign such a treaty? Does Canada not have its own military to “protect vital Chinese investments?” Does Canada not trust its own Royal Canadian Mounted Police? Are Canada’s Provincial Police forces somehow inadequate? Or did Prime Minister Trudeau somehow find that allowing China to mass troops in his country might be beneficial to HIMSELF? Did Trudeau get a massive payoff from China to betray the United States like this? What other explanation could there be?
According to locals in British Columbia, PLA troops are troops being stationed in Stanley Park (almost an entire island of a park) in Vancouver, as temporary housing until they are assigned something permanent. Look at the size of this “park:”
Oh, and get this . . .Canadians say THEY CANNOT GO INTO THAT PARK because it is taken over by China’s People’s Liberation Army! Anyone trying to enter the park is stopped by Vancouver police and refused entry unless they are PLA troops!
One Canadian tells me “You got ‘em (PLA Troops) all over the coast, man, based outta Prince Rupert. A bunch of their military intel people work outta their consulate in town (Vancouver) and they can airlift the assault troops here in an hour, is what I been told.”
That same source went on to say “That’s how that fucking traitor Trudeau’s arranged it with Beijing, man. The west coast is theirs. They’re gonna be the ones managing the curfews and all the other shit that’s gonna follow.
So, ladies and gentlemen, our neighbor and “ally,” Canada, under the completely fraudulent guise of protecting Chinese investments, has betrayed the United States and is permitting China to mass troops on Canada’s west coast, and China is doing so – allegedly to protect their investments – but in actual fact, for use in attacking and conquering the United States.
REDEPLOYMENT OF F-22′s AND F-35′s to . . . Alaska
There was a curious story a few weeks ago about how the US is redeploying F-22′s and F-35′s to . . . Alaska. (Story Here)
It didn’t make any sense at the time. Why would we put some of our most advanced fighter jets all the way up there? Now, we seem to know!
The US Government knows what China is doing and our government is preparing to fight them off! Those planes can fly in from behind the Chinese troops and bomb them.
CALL-UP of ONE MILLION RESERVISTS
There was another story back in March, by ABC News (HERE) about President Trump authorizing the Secretary of Defense to Call-up a MILLION U.S. Military Reservists.
At the time, we were told that the call-up had to do with COVID-19 and those troops would be able to help with the outbreak.
That story just didn’t hold water because the COVID outbreak wasn’t nearly that bad. Now, the call-up seems to make sense.
The US Government saw that China has begun massing troops and is calling-up a MILLION U.S. Military Reservists to fight them off!

Chinese state-run media is challenging the United States and India, claiming that the J-20 “stealth fighter” is more than a match for American F-22 Raptor and India’s newly-acquired Rafale.
Two articles regarding the J-20’s capabilities -posted on the same day- were featured in the South China Morning Post and the Global Times, media outlets that ultimately fall under control of the Chinese Communist Party.
While articles praising military hardware are not uncommon for any nation, the two articles regarding the Chengdu J-20 were rather pointed in their own ways.
“America’s F-22 stealth fighter may be limited in Asia-Pacific conditions, China’s J-20 designer says,” read the title of the South China Morning Post article.
The SCMP article cited a claim -reportedly made by J-20 designer Yang Wei- that the F-22 was designed to fight in Europe and that it would potentially struggle against “homegrown” aircraft in the Asian-Pacific combat environment.
Wei recounted the McDonnell-Douglas F-4 Phantom, and implied the venerable aircraft was designed to fight the Russians, resulting in it having a harder time in the Vietnam War.
“The complex environment and political constraints in Vietnam caused the F-4 to almost fail to show its high-speed performance and over-the-horizon combat capabilities,” Wei wrote.
While Yang did not actually make a comparison between the J-20 and F-22, the SCMP were sure to include commentary by Song Zhongping, a military commentator in Hong Kong- who said the J-20’s biggest advantage was that it was developed later, meaning it would have strengths built off the F-22s weaknesses.
“China’s J-20 was inspired by the F-22’s deployment,” he said in a statement. “The Chinese aircraft designers used the Raptor as a rival and the F-35 [stealth multi-role fighter] as a tactical opponent to help them to come up with a more practical and capable fighter jet.”
No mention was made as to how much of the J-20’s capabilities were the result of China’s penchant for blatant intellectual theft and reverse-engineering of successful foreign designs, particularly in regards to the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II.
While the SCMP danced around the idea of a J-20 tangling with an F-22 using an obscure scenario, their message to India -who recently acquired French-made Dassault Rafale fighters- was certainly more blunt: “India’s Rafale fighter jets have no chance against China’s J-20.”
“Chinese experts said that the Rafale is only a ‘third-plus’ generation fighter jet, and does not stand much of a chance against a stealth, fourth generation one like the J-20,” the Global Times article read.
However, the latter article ultimately appears to be a spitting contest between China and India, albeit in the form of publications and government statements.
In the article India’s former air chief marshal, B.S. Dhanoa, was quoted in the article as saying the Rafale “is a game changer, and the Chinese J-20 does not even come close.”
“It is common knowledge that a generational gap in fighter jets represents a huge difference that cannot be made up by tactics and numbers in combat,” the Global Times rebutted, citing obscure and unnamed “military observers.”
Despite technological leaps and bounds on the part of the Chinese, experience is one area where Chinese pilots are still very lacking.
The US Air Force and Navy still have active/reserve pilots with combat experience, and some even have air-to-air kills to their name (the most recent being a Su-22 fighter/bomber shot down by an F/A-18E Super Hornet in 2017). Even India, who does not see armed conflict as much as one would assume, has claimed to have shot down a Pakistani jet during a border scuffle in 2019.

The 2nd of September marked the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, the deadliest military conflict in history. The war claimed the lives of at least 70 million people across the globe.
In an interview with Sky News, the UK's Chief of the Defence Staff, General Sir Nick Carter has warned that the global economic meltdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic may lead to new security threats which, in turn, may spark a new world war.
He argued in the Sunday interview that people across the globe are "living at a moment in time where the world is a very uncertain and anxious place", adding that he thinks "the real risk we have, with quite a lot of regional conflicts that are going on at the moment, is you could see escalation lead to miscalculation and that is a thing I think we have to guard against".
The general described an escalation as something that means that more people and weaponry “perhaps get involved and before you can contain it, it leads the sides ending up in a full-blown war”.
Carter recalled that escalation was in place before both world wars last century and that it resulted in a "miscalculation which ultimately led to war at a scale we would hopefully never see again".
Asked whether he means the threat of a third world war is real, the general pointed out, "I am saying it's a risk and I think we need to be conscious of those risks".
Separately, the chief of the defence staff gave his thoughts about the future of the UK's military, saying that it may be comprised of both human soldiers and remotely controlled machines in the decades to come.
"I mean, I suspect we could have an army of 120,000, of which 30,000 might be robots [in the 2030s], who knows?", Carter said.
The interview comes a few months after the international community commemorated the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII, the world's bloodiest military conflict in which at least 70 million people, including about 40 million civilians, perished.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that a massive war is coming that will cause the "end of our civilization."
Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that a massive war is coming that will cause the “end of our civilization.”
Speaking at the World Economic Forum this week, Putin said that the elite’s crackdown on people’s civil liberties has exacerbated global tensions and warned that there is “every reason to believe that the tensions might be aggravated even further.”
Citing experts who have compared the current global crisis to the situation in the 1920’s and 30’s, Putin warned fellow world leaders that the world was heading down a dangerous path.
“In the 20th century, the failure and inability to centrally resolve such issues resulted in the catastrophic World War II,” Putin said. “Of course, nowadays such a heated conflict is not possible, I hope that it’s not possible in principle, because it would mean the end of our civilization.”
Summit.news reports: Putin said that the “destruction of traditional values” and freedom itself was on the line if the situation is allowed to deteriorate to the point of conflict where it’s “all against all.”
Elsewhere in his talk, Putin addressed Internet censorship, asserting that social media networks were now competing with elected governments over monopoly of power.
“We are now talking about economic giants, aren’t we? In certain areas, they are competing with states and their audience can include millions and millions of users,” said Putin.
“Here is the question, how well does this monopolism correlate with the public interest?” he asked.
Intel Reportedly Picks Up Radio Chatter of Chinese Bomber Pilots Simulating Strike on US Carrier
Above: H-6K long range nuclear bomber over South China Sea
Ilay Tsukanov – Sputnik News Jan 30, 2021
Last week, US Indo-Pacific Command announced that a Navy carrier strike group led by the USS Theodore Roosevelt had entered the South China Sea for “routine operations”. The move was followed immediately thereafter by China deploying bombers, fighters, and an anti-submarine warfare turboprop for drills off Taiwan.
Last weekend’s Chinese air drills southwest of Taiwan appear to have been a direct response to the arrival of the US carrier group in the region, with radio chatter collected by the US and its allies indicating that Chinese bomber pilots had been given orders to simulate an attack run on the 88,000 tonne carrier using anti-ship missiles, FT reports, citing sources said to be ‘familiar with intelligence’.
Some 28 People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) aircraft, including at least eight H-6 bombers, four J-16 fighters, and a Y-8 anti-submarine warfare plane, entered Taiwan’s so-called ‘Air Defence Identification Zone’ (ADIZ) between 23 and 24 January. The deployment came in the immediate aftermath of the arrival of a US carrier strike group in the South China Sea on 23 January.
PLAAF’s maritime strike H-6 bombers can be armed with up to six YJ-12 anti-ship cruise missiles, and/or 6-7 KD-20 air-launched cruise missiles. The former can accelerate to Mach 3 in flight, making them difficult to defend against by carrier groups’ elaborate air and missile defence systems, such as the Aegis or SM-2 fleet area defence missiles.
The Aviationist contributor David Cenciotti points out that while not confirmed to have been involved in last week’s missions, modified H-6s can carry the DF-21D, an air-launched version of the DF-21 ‘Carrier Killer’ anti-ship ballistic missile, which has a range of up to 1,450 km, a speed of up to Mach 6, and a conventional or nuclear payload.
The Pentagon appeared to confirm that the Chinese drills off Taiwan were directed against US forces late Friday, with Indo-Pacific Command spokesman Mike Kafka blasting China’s “attempt to use its military as a tool to intimidate or coerce” others while stressing that the USS Theodore Roosevelt-led carrier strike group had “closely monitored” all Chinese navy and air force activity. “At no time did they pose a threat to US Navy ships, aircraft, or sailors,” Kafka stressed.
Biden vs. Beijing
Despite campaigning on trying to fix the ‘toxic’ China-US relationship that came about under Donald Trump, the Biden administration began ramping up tensions with China almost immediately after coming into office last week. Along with the deployment of the strike group to the South China Sea, Washington publicly promised to help Japan defend the Senkaku Islands, the strategic archipelago of uninhabited rocks contested by Tokyo and Beijing that’s situated in the East China Sea between the Chinese mainland and Japan’s Ryukyu Islands.
