US deploys carrier strike group to send 'clear and unmistakable message' to Iran

https://thehill.com/policy/defense/...o-send-clear-and-unmistakable-message-to-iran


The United States is deploying a carrier strike group and a bomber task force to the Middle East in response to what it called "troubling and escalatory indications and warnings" from Iran, national security adviser John Bolton announced on Sunday.

Bolton said in a statement that the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force would be deployed to a region overseen by the Pentagon's U.S. Central Command, whose areas of responsibility include the Middle East.

"In response to a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings, the United States is deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the U.S. Central Command region to send a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime that any attack on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force," Bolton said.

"The United States is not seeking war with the Iranian regime, but we are fully prepared to respond to any attack, whether by proxy, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or regular Iranian forces."

It's not unusual for an aircraft carrier to be deployed to the region, but the language used in Bolton's statement suggests the U.S. is seeking to ramp up pressure on Iran to counter what the White House perceives to be a potential threat.

The Trump administration has made several moves recently aimed at Tehran, announcing last month new sanctions targeting foreign countries that receive Iranian oil exports. Axios reported on Sunday that the White House is planning to announce further sanctions later this week.

The statement also comes as new violence flares between Israel and the Palestinians in Gaza. The group Islamic Jihad, which has a foothold in Gaza, is seen as an Iranian proxy.

In April, the U.S. designated Iran's Revolutionary Guard a foreign terrorist organization, the first time the designation has been applied to a government entity. Iran responded in kind, designating all U.S. troops in the Middle East terrorists.

“We will answer any action taken against this force with a reciprocal action. So the leaders of America, who themselves are the creators and supporters of terrorists in the (Middle East) region, will regret this inappropriate and idiotic action," hundreds of Iranian lawmakers said in a statement accompanying the designation.

The White House and U.S. Central Command did not immediately respond to a request for clarification from The Hill on where forces will be deployed and which incidents Bolton's statement referenced.

As usual, the puppet leaders of America get their strings jerked by Israhell & more of our taxes are wasted through our military industrial complex, in response to what the “White House PERCEIVED to be a POTENTIAL threat”.

Why aren’t constituents allowed to decide these political moves?

They should give us citizens a say in these issues.

Gulf of Tonking incident incoming
The US can't spin this like they did with the Iraq war so Israel has to do this. She has a false-flag at the ready so that the US has to naturally defend its "ally". The DOD will summon its evangelical corps to sell the war to the average pew dweller.
I can't wait to watch those televangelists selling the war on behalf of their pay masters....seen it before with Iraq & Syria.

AIPAC and WINEP

Iran funded many of the 700 rockets that were launched at Israeli civilians in the past few days, and is the world's biggest sponsor of Islamic terror. Iran is a quasi-police state, run by Islamic nutjobs, and they routinely kill Iranian citizens who protest against their support of terror and the general fact that the mullahs are dicks. Iran owns and operates the proxy state of Lebanon, and when you read that Syrian troops did something in Syria, it's actually Iranian troops, because Iran has essentially occupied Syria, and they pull the strings of Assad that the Russians aren't holding. I say all this because I struggle to understand why anyone would prefer Iran to the US, since most of the same accusations made against the US can be made against Iran.

It's bewildering to read FOX news and US/Israeli state-sponsored propaganda on an alternative investigation site such as VC. It makes no sense. The US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel are the real "troika of tyranny" that for decades have collaborated with and funded terrorist groups worldwide.

The MSM (right and left) publishes lies for the military industrial complex. In the case of Hamas rockets they fail to explain that they are random, unguided missiles that are toys compared to the over 250 guided strikes into Palestinian civilian areas. These are war crimes. Iran's military capability, just like Iraq's, is so far below that of US/NATO- there's no comparison. The US staged false flag attacks to justify destabilizing Syria in an illegal attempt to oust Assad- and this chaos only serves their Zionist partners. Same thing we see playing out now in Iran.

Truth-seekers understand that Western neocons like Kissinger and Bolton have planned for war in Iran since the 1990's. They are bloodthirsty vampires that care nothing for human life or international law to achieve their devilish aims.

The evil, deluded spirits who publish these criminal's propaganda are against the God of Peace and Jesus Christ. They are a fraud.

Actually, since '82, "they" have been establishing and orchestrating what's known as the Oded Yinon Plan.

Just wondering: which country, according to you, is the world's biggest sponsor of non-islamic terror?

Thank you. Some of their analysis was incorrect but the majority of their aims are going exactly as planned:

"Iraq, rich in oil on the one hand and internally torn on the other, is guaranteed as a candidate for Israel's targets. It's dissolution is even more important for us than that of Syria. Iraq is stronger than Syria... Every kind of inter-Arab confrontation will assist us in the short term and will shorten the way to the more important aim of breaking up Iraq into denominations as in Syria and in Lebanon."

"...The autonomy plan ought also to be rejected, as well as any compromises or division of the territories for, given the plans of the PLO and those of the Israeli Arabs themselves, the Shefa'amr plan of 1980, it's not possible to go on living in this country in the present situation without separating the two nations, the Arabs to Jordan and the Jews to the areas west of the river. Genuine coexistence and peace will reign over the land only when the Arabs understand that without Jewish rule between the Jordan and the seas they will have neither existence or security."

I’m not bitter against all Jews.
I wish they would get saved.

The newly established state of “Israel”, however, is run by reprobates.
Then I wonder why you would call their state Israhell? That seems rather aggressive towards the nation. To be sure, they aren’t saved and live like the world, but since they are God’s chosen people, should we not bless them, for surely God means what He says when He says, I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you? Also, knowing that one day those very Jews will be once again grafted into the olive tree, we will be brothers and sisters with them. Should we talk so ill of them?

Iran Metals Sanction Target Jobs, Not Government Revenue

US sanctions violate human rights and international code of conduct, UN expert says

“The extraterritorial application of unilateral sanctions is clearly contrary to international law,” the expert said. “I am deeply concerned that one State can use its dominant position in international finance to harm not only the Iranian people, who have followed their obligations under the UN-approved nuclear deal to this day, but also everyone in the world who trades with them.

“The international community must come together to challenge what amounts to blockades ignoring a country’s sovereignty, the human rights of its people, and the rights of third countries trading with sanctioned States, all while constituting a threat to world peace and security.

“I call on the international community to engage in constructive dialogue with Venezuela, Cuba, Iran and the United States to find a peaceful resolution in compliance with the spirit and letter of the Charter of the United Nations before the arbitrary use of economic starvation becomes the new ‘normal’.”
