Will the U.S. assassination of the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force, Qassem Soleimani, by drone-strike near Baghdad International Airport earlier today, unleash the four angels against the U.S.?

Revelation 9:14-16
9:14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great River Euphrates (Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran)*.
9:15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for The Hour, and The Day, (the month, and the year) for to slay the third part of men.
9:16 And the number of the army of the horsemen [were] two hundred thousand thousand**: and I HEARD the number of them (China is the only nation on Earth with a 200,000,000 standing army).

*The four "angels" which are "bound" in the great River Euphrates are the four countries through which the Euphrates runs. The Euphrates begins in southeast Turkey, continuing through Syria and Iraq on its way to the Shatt al-Arab waterway, which forms the border between Iraq and Iran.

**Revelation 16:12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great River Euphrates; and the “water” (the people – Rev. 17:15) thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the East (eastern block – Russia & China***) might be prepared.

***Russia and China have been conducting joint military exercises since August 2005.

Iranian FM warns Biden the ‘window for cooperation is closing rapidly,’ as Tehran threatens to deviate further from nuclear pact


Iran’s foreign minister has warned that Tehran is willing to take further action and reduce cooperation with International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors if the US and European powers fail to comply with the nuclear pact.

“With the new government in Washington, there is an opportunity to try a new approach, but the current window is closing rapidly,” Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Wednesday.

Zarif said the Iranian government was ready to take new retaliatory action and further deviate from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) which was signed between Iran and six major global powers in 2015, placing constraints on Tehran's nuclear ambitions.

“Soon my administration will have to take new retaliatory action, in response to the unfortunate non-compliance of the United States and Europe with their commitments,” Zarif noted, adding that Iran was ready to go through with its plan to cut cooperation with inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency.

“This can only be avoided if the United States decides to learn from Trump’s maximum defeat, not lean towards it,” he stated.

The JCPOA broke down in 2018 when former President Donald Trump unilaterally pulled the US out of the pact and imposed crippling sanctions on Iran.

Iran has set a February 21 deadline for the US and its Western allies, after which Tehran will bar international inspectors from visiting Iranian nuclear sites if the sanctions have not been lifted.

In January, Iran further hollowed out the remains of the nuclear pact by upping its uranium enrichment to 20 percent, which was much higher than the 3.67 percent level agreed upon in the 2015 pact, but still far below the 90 percent level that is considered weapons-grade.


Israeli Minister Warns of War if Biden Returns to Iran Pact


Joe Biden’s intention to return to the controversial nuclear deal with Iran, if he is elected president, could lead to war between Israel and Iran, according to Israeli Settlements Minister Tzachi Hanegbi.

His comments came during an interview on Channel 13 is Israel. They were detailed in a Wednesday story in The Jerusalem Post.

“Biden has said openly for a long time that he will go back to the nuclear agreement,” Hanegbi said. “I see that as something that will lead to a confrontation between Israel and Iran.

“If Biden stays with that policy, there will, in the end, be a violent confrontation between Israel and Iran.”

Russia and Syria Bomb Oil Storage Facilities Being Used by U.S., Turkey and Israel Inside Syria!!!!

http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=229239

The Syrian Arab Army and Russian forces inside that country, fired Tochka Ballistic missiles at Oil Storage Tank Facilities being occupied by and used by the United States, Turkey and Israel, inside Syria. Giant explosions levelled most of the storage tank farms, rendering it impossible for the US, Turkey or Israel to continue STEALING Syrian Oil; something that has been going on for years while the US was allegedly “fighting ISIS.”

Video from the attacks as they began, is slowly filtering out of Syria. In the short video clip below, after the first missile blew up some storage tanks, a second missile hits with spectacular effect, lighting the night sky for miles as the oil blew up:

US Intelligence Reveals Israel Has Bombed "Dozens" Of Iranian Oil Tankers

Tyler Durden's Photo

BY TYLER DURDEN
THURSDAY, MAR 11, 2021 - 20:30

All signs are currently pointing to serious escalation in the Middle East between Israel, Iran, and involving the United States - particularly after Israel's recent claim of an Iranian sponsored attack on an Israeli-owned cargo ship in the Gulf of Oman two weeks ago.

Signaling the likelihood that another red hot 'tanker war' is set for regional waters within the upcoming months, a new bombshell report in The Wall Street Journal on Thursday reveals Israeli intelligence has been waging its own tanker sabotage campaign against the Iranians over the past two years, in order to thwart what Tel Aviv believes are illegal oil shipments that result in funds for terror groups.

"Israel has targeted at least a dozen vessels bound for Syria and mostly carrying Iranian oil out of concern that petroleum profits are funding extremism in the Middle East, US and regional officials say, in a new front in the conflict between Israel and Iran," the WSJ writes.



It also appears part of the Israeli and US campaign to essentially starve the Assad government and bring it to its knees, further amidst near weekly Israeli airstrikes inside the war-torn country. The new report clearly suggests US intelligence officials knew about the covert tanker sabotage campaign in real time, and may have even assisted in some level of the planning or operations. Remember too that during the final months of the Trump administration Pompeo was essentially told he could go "gloves off" when it comes to greenlighting Israeli sabotage against Iran.

Officials say the covert espionage campaign has been underway going back to late 2019, which featured water mines being secretly attached to ships in order to stop 'sanctions-busting activity' in places like the Red Sea - which is a transit route the Islamic Republic uses to resupply its ally Syria of badly needed oil and fuel.

Interestingly, Iran has actually loudly claimed to be victim of precisely such Israeli mine and bomb attacks on the high seas in the recent past, which starting in 2019 were even reported in Israeli media.
See for example the below...
Iran blames alleged tanker attack on Israel, US and Saudis https://t.co/U6RHnGksFX
— The Times of Israel (@TimesofIsrael) October 16, 2019
"In an episode last month, suspected Israeli operatives attached a limpet mine to attack an Iranian vessel as it anchored near Lebanon to deliver Iran oil to Syria, according to the first shipping professional," WSJ continues.

"The attacks on the tankers carrying Iranian oil haven’t been previously disclosed. Iranian officials have reported some of the attacks earlierand have said they suspect Israeli involvement." But typically when it's the Iranians, Russians or Syrians making the allegations it gets ignored or batted down in Western press.

The rationale provided for such attacks in the report also includes that Iran's elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) typically operate or provide security for the tankers bound for Syria. All of this helps explain what appears to be Iranian retaliation over the past year - again, particularly the latest bombing incident against the Israeli-owned cargo ship Helios Ray in the Gulf of Oman.

The Israeli initiative also appears aimed at ensuring the disruption of Biden's stated plans to rejoin the Iran nuclear deal.
Chief executive for the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, Mark Dubowitz, summarized Tel Aviv's approach as follows: "Israel stepped up the game beyond sanctions to sabotage," he was quoted in WSJ as saying. "The Red Sea sabotage is keeping with a broader economic warfare campaign."

Nine Signs That Prove the Elite Are Planning a Major Middle East War


1615834786372.png

The Biden administration and globalist elites are setting the stage for a massive holy war in the Middle East at some point next year.

Most Americans aren’t aware of the obvious warning signs that World War 3 is being planned under their very own noses.

In the following article, courtesy of ‘Most Important News’, we outline the nine chess moves that have been made since Biden entered the White House, that prove a Middle East war is imminent:

#1 Literally one day after Biden was inaugurated, a massive U.S. military convoy rolled into Syria

A large US military convoy entered northeastern Syria on Thursday, Syrian state news agency SANA reports, citing sources on the ground.
According to the report, the convoy included some 40 trucks and armored vehicles and was backed from the air by helicopters.
President Trump had tried very hard to disengage from the war in Syria, but Biden has made it crystal clear that the U.S. will be heavily involved in that conflict moving forward.


#2 Just a few weeks later, Joe Biden conducted his first airstrike against Iranian-backed forces inside Syria…

The US has carried out an air strike targeting Iran-backed militias in Syria, in the first military action undertaken by the Biden administration.
The Pentagon said the strike destroyed “multiple facilities” and was ordered in response to attacks against US and coalition personnel in Iraq.
Militia officials said one person had been killed but a war monitor reported at least 22 fatalities.
#3 Of course it was inevitable that Iranian-backed forces would respond, and they retaliated by launching rockets at a military base in Iraq where U.S. forces are stationed. Just a couple days ago, new Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said that there will be a U.S. military response “at a time and place of our own choosing”

Defense Sec. Lloyd Austin tells @MarthaRaddatz the U.S. is still assessing who carried out recent rocket attack on base in Iraq housing U.S. troops—and that if the U.S. decides to respond, it will be “at a time and place of our own choosing.”
#4 More U.S. airstrikes may come sooner rather than later. In fact, it is being reported that the U.S. has just sent six B-52 bombers to Diego Garcia…

The U.S. Air Force is sending six B-52 Stratofortress bombers to Diego Garcia, a military hub that acts as a strategic location for operations in both the Middle East and the Pacific.
Citing a U.S. official, CNN on Monday reported that the Cold War-era bomber will be “available for operations against Iran if ordered.”
#5 The Biden administration is also sending approximately 10,000 more U.S. troops to the Middle East…

Once the amphibious assault ship Bataan, which is moving toward the Middle East, arrives, the U.S. will have added roughly 10,000 personnel to the area within the last week, according to The Wall Street Journal.
#6 Russia has been busy making moves in the region as well. On Friday, Russia conducted an air strike on an oil-loading facility in Syria that is used by opposition forces that are backed by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the Biden administration…

A suspected missile strike on an oil-loading facility used by Turkey-backed opposition forces in northern Syria sparked a massive blaze across a large area where oil tankers are normally parked, aerial and satellite images show.
Syrian opposition groups and at least one war monitor blamed Russia for the strike Friday night near the towns of Jarablus and al-Bab, near the border with Turkey. In a report, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, based in Britain, said Russian warships in the Mediterranean had fired three missiles that struck primitive oil refineries and tanker trucks in the region.
#7 Meanwhile, Israel continues to hit strategically important targets inside Syria on a regular basis. The following comes from a news report that was published in late February

Syrian air defenses were activated in the capital Damascus and its southern suburbs Sunday night to repel an Israeli missile attack, state media reported. There was no word on casualties.
State TV quoted an unnamed military official as saying that most of the Israeli missiles were shot down before reaching their targets near Damascus.
#8 Israel is particularly interested in keeping Iran from developing nuclear weapons. In an interview with Fox News, Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz just stated that Israel is ready to attack Iran without any U.S. help

The Israeli military is updating plans to strike Iranian nuclear sites and is prepared to act independently, Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz told Fox News.
Israel has identified numerous targets inside Iran that would hurt its ability to develop a nuclear bomb.
“If the world stops them before, it’s very much good. But if not, we must stand independently and we must defend ourselves by ourselves,” Gantz said in his first sit-down interview with an American outlet.
#9 During a phone call last Thursday between Kamala Harris and Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister made it exceedingly clear that his nation is ready to do whatever it takes to prevent the Iranians from developing their own nukes…

“The prime minister said we would continue to strengthen our intelligence and security cooperation and said during their conversation that as prime minister of Israel, he is totally committed to preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons that are meant for our destruction.”
Of course the Iranians have no plans to back down, and that makes a military conflict between Israel and Iran inevitable.

There will be war in the Middle East, and the horror of that conflict will shock the entire planet.

And once that war begins, it will greatly accelerate our economic problems and the ongoing political turmoil in this country.

So enjoy this brief period of relative stability while you can, because our world is about to start changing in dramatic ways.

China’s new partnership with Iran is not a full alliance, but enough to undermine US sanctions & rock global status quo

Excerpt below from: https://www.rt.com/op-ed/519429-iran-china-partnership-deal/


Whilst China holds a delicate balance in Middle Eastern affairs, preferring a good relationship with everyone, this agreement is a gamechanger. It isn’t as much aimed at Saudi Arabia or Israel, as it is toward Washington, and will stand to give Tehran new strategic leverage over its place in the world after its economy has been crushed by unilateral US sanctions aimed at its oil industry. Some may prematurely call it an alliance of sorts, even if informally, and it certainly adds to the recent record of Beijing’s diplomacy whereby it has also strengthened ties with Moscow. Iran is pivotal to China’s intercontinental vision,
the Belt and Road Initiative, its projection into the Indian ocean and its energy security. This is a big deal, literally and metaphorically.

We will not allow Iran to obtain nuclear capability, PM Netanyahu says as Tehran blames Israel for Natanz plant attack

Excerpt below from: https://www.rt.com/news/520813-israel-iran-nuclear-capability/

A day after an incident at Iran’s uranium enrichment facility, which was blamed on Israeli spies, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his country will defend itself from Iranian “aggression and terrorism.”

Without directly mentioning the incident in Iran, Netanyahu spared no words to admonish Tehran, calling it the biggest threat Israel faces in the Middle East.

“Iran has never given up its quest for nuclear weapons and missiles to deliver them. And Iran consistently and outrageously calls for Israel’s annihilation and works toward that goal,” the Israeli leader said.
I will never allow Iran to obtain the nuclear capability to carry out its genocidal goal of eliminating Israel. And Israel will continue to defend itself against Iran’s aggression and terrorism.
Netanyahu was speaking to the press alongside visiting US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, who assured his host of Washington’s unwavering support in maintaining Israeli military supremacy in the Middle East. Both officials brought up Yom HaShoah, the Israeli Holocaust Remembrance Day that was observed earlier in April.

On Sunday, Iran reported a power outage incident at its uranium enrichment facility in Natanz, blaming it on Israel. Israeli and US media said its sources confirmed that it was the result of a clandestine operation carried out by the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad. An offensive cyber operation has caused an explosion at the plant’s on-site power generation equipment, the media claimed. Iran didn’t offer details about the damage at Natanz.

RAF jets will deploy to Romania to counter Putin’s aggression in Eastern Europe as Russia masses 80,000 troops on Ukrainian border and inches ‘a step from war’

Excerpt below from: http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=231674
  • Defence chiefs confirmed the RAF deployment to Romania to police the skies
  • They will be supported by troops as they deploy from bases in the UK this week
  • It comes at a time of heightened fears of conflict between Russia and Ukraine
Mark Nicol – Daily Mail April 12, 2021
Six Royal Air Force Typhoon super-jets will fly to eastern Europe in a bid to deter Russian president Vladimir Putin who has sent troops to the Ukrainian border.

Last night UK defence chiefs confirmed the RAF deployment to Romania to police the skies around the Black Sea.

The Typhoons will be supported by troops from the RAF’s No 1 Expeditionary Logistics Squadron and No 2 Mechanical Transport Squadron. They are deploying from bases in the UK this week.

Last night, Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky said he was still waiting after requesting talks with Putin nearly three weeks ago following the deaths of four of his troops in a Russian mortar attack.

His spokesman said: ‘We very much hope that this is not a refusal of dialogue.’

According to the Ukrainian government, Russia has sent 41,000 troops to the border in eastern Ukraine and 42,000 to Crimea and these numbers ‘keep growing’.

While the Kremlin has tried to claim it is an exercise, not a threat, Russian state TV yesterday warned Moscow is ‘one step away from war’.

More than 14,000 people have been killed since Russia annexed eastern Ukraine in 2014 and efforts to negotiate a peace settlement have failed.

Security experts fear Russia may reoccupy eastern Ukraine on the pretence of protecting native Russian speakers there.

Nato has voiced concern over the build-up of Russian forces.

The Typhoons’ deployment is part of an annual Nato air policing mission, Operation Biloxi. Up to 100 British infantry troops are also expected to be sent to Ukraine to take part in joint exercises with its soldiers this summer.

The Ministry of Defence said: ‘Operation Biloxi is a long-planned deployment of RAF Typhoons to Romania in support of the Nato Southern Air Policing mission to monitor the airspace of our ally.’
