Israeli Jets Prepare For Imminent Strike Against Iran: Iranian TV

Tyler Durden's picture

Iranian PressTV reports that Israeli jet fighters have reportedly conducted drills at a military base in Iraq in order to strike targets inside Iran. While the Pentagon has so far denied this development which could easily send oil to $200, we are more curious what Israel has to say, or more specifically do, in response to such allegations.

From PressTV

A considerable number of Israeli warplanes were seen at al-Asad base in Iraq, reported a source close to prominent Iraqi cleric Muqtada al-Sader's group.

The aircraft reportedly included F-15, F-16, F-18, F-22, and KC-10 jet fighters.

The warplanes carried out their week-long exercises at nights, the same source added.

The drills were reportedly aimed at preparing to strike Iran's air defense systems, disrupt Iran's radars and attack targets deep inside Iran.

Iraqi officials had not been notified of the exercises, which were conducted in collaboration with the US military.

The United States maintains numerous bases in Iraq, and the Baghdad government is not involved in any of the military deployments taking place there.

Current Iranian regime is CIA/Rothschild puppet.

As was Pinochet and most other Central American leaders, most of the Filipino leadership since the Spanish-American war (also where CIA torture techniques were cultivated), and some South American countries. I'm sure I'm missing a few (dozen) as well but that's generally what's considered America's backyard. Yes, America has a long history of dictating governmental powers around the world. :(

And here comes the pitch...
Opinion Shifts From Jihad

News of Osama bin Laden's death reached a Middle East that has been vastly transformed in recent months by popular nonviolent uprisings, and where for many, the phenomenon of violent jihad he made popular had faded.

Has violent jihad's popularity really faded?  If the WSJ says so on the front page, then it must be true, right?  Or is this just wishful thinking and propaganda by the KSA/USA?  Is this the why behind the timing of the OBL "kill" that could have been pressed for at this time by the KSA?  Are they hoping to pour some cold water on last Friday's KSA protests?  Remember that OBL was causing trouble in the KSA long before 9/11. 

Demonstrators in the eastern city of Qatif denounced Riyadh for backing Bahraini forces in destruction of mosques and holy sites, Press TV reported on Friday.

I bet they're chanting,

Hey, Hey,

Ho, Ho,

This violent jihad's got to go!

'Yes, America has a long history of dictating governmental powers around the world.'

or at least trying to buy it...

Americant Expat's picture

Money talks and dictating can be considering talking if you get my gist. No doubt financial incentives were at the heart of steering American puppet leaders.

don't know, maybe, maybe not.  no rothschild central bank there...  zionists have been agitating for a war with Iran for a long time.  Maybe to destroy the country like Iraq.

Not a chance on Iran being a puppet.  That is silly over-the-top disinfo.  Khomeini won the revolution over the global elite's marxists and brought nationalism to Iran.  Further, Iran has been living under pretty strict Western sanctions since.  Iran's leaders do not play golf while ordering young boys to risk their lives for nothing.  Iran's leaders do not make jokes about WMD's not being found under their podium.  Iran's banks are not permitted to charge interest.  Iran's leaders are not stupid enough to believe the holocaust story as it as been presented in Western media.  I'll stop there for now.

We tried to turn Iran, but couldn't. Then we installed the Shah, and we know what happened afterwards.

This isn't conspiracy, but historical fact. It's the business of oil, politics and,

Jackals can only do so much before full scale military interventionism is necessitated.

The Shah tortured Iranians with tactics learned from our very own CIA. This was just one of the things that led to his demise at the hands of the Iranian Revolution. It didn't help that he was an incompetent and corrupt 'leader.'

We did the same thing in South American nations, Iraq and many, many other places. In fact, just look at what nations have lacked central banks on the London Central Bank model, now and in the past, and a pattern of definitiveness is sharply visible.

World realpolitik is a funny and tragic thing. Everyone wants to believe that their government is full of the good guys and white hands, and then, a few break out from the sheeple mindset and indoctrination they've received since kindergarten and begin to challenge what they're being told based on the cracks they can't help see develop on the wall of platitudes and simplicities.

When they push the blocks apart, to see where the light is coming from, it's an ugly scene.

The Matrix was just a movie, but central banks and fractional reserve money mechanics are very real, and just as fundamentally dangerous to freedoms as anything Hollywood ever invented - we're all Coppertop Batteries to those in the know and flow.

Gracefully said and maybe when I quit drinking flouride water I'll be able to write as elequantly as you have. Well done, I always look for your posts as you have a way with words that eludes me.

I don't disagree really. I only hedge my thoughts because the layers of deception are many. They may be parts of Iran influenced by "the dark side" that are not yet understood. Speaking of the banks and layers of deception, their role in this unfolding drama is just about finished. The banking system has been used to rob weath, destroy the middle class and the U.S. general, and set up a coming collapse. You can bet the banks will later be used as the fall guy to justify whatever it is they roll out next, like a world currency. all this designed with one thing in mind, to centralize power in the hands of the few.

AmExPat & CB - thanks.

John, the truth is the truth, and some versions of history are objectively superior to others.

It's too bad we don't teach children in schools FACTS anymore, but government approved (sanitized, PCed and devoid of any measure of objectivity or utility) and sanctioned bullshit.

One would think that a robust, strong Republic built on firmly held notions of democracy would allow its citizens to be exposed to much more truth, reality and historical fact, and that it would allow for and even encourage much more self-scrutiny, self-examination and vigorous debate about the whys, hows and whats of the world we live in, including our role in it as both catalyst, recipient or bystander - but that's way too much to hope for, apparently.

There's a reason why most Americans don't know or care about the military-industrial (and now military-industrial-technological) complex, and why they'd think the 'School of the Americas' was a junior college or college prepatory school for upper class children in Florida or maybe Connecticut.

well said... seems manipulative and exploitative forces are part of modern civilization... with all the chaotic situation eventually points back to London & DC.

Heard that misinformation before - put out by design to confuse and discredit the truthsayers. The Zionist/Rothschild empire is very powerful, but not that powerful. They say they control the Chinese too  - not true.

Aren't we all?  Actually, there really are Rothschild puppets - I know, because we've got one.

<places tin foil hat on head>

Agreed, the Iranian cleric/government that has for a better part of 40 years been running without any real geopolitical hinderances (other than the usual political theatre) and has some serious oil production.  It would appear that it's still part of the same puppet show we are used to seeing.

Sorry to jump in here.

Where and why did the compound with pictures story disappear?

Someone wrote about Jack the Ripper and the AI in the sky did not want anyone comparing Ted Bundy to Prince Eddie.

Ah, ok, that clears it up then. Just because it was replaced by the Politico puff piece, I was windering is all. ;-)

as a veteran of the USAF working at mobile command and control facilities, I'm well aware of what the KC-10 is. That was a joke.

The Israeli have some bad ass stuff.

Their ground troops have even better weapons than US troops.

Their Tanks match the US tanks

Their troops get a very hard training and every citizen goes to the army.

In Cambodia I once met a group is Israeli soldiers and I still remember their stories well. They where surprisingly western in their thoughts, and these guys weren't the kind of guys that you messed with.

If you would mix these guys with US troops, you wouldn't notice.


Dreadker's picture

Their tanks are more advanced than US tanks - they were the first to use and combat prove radar based anti rocket systems (TROPHY).... pretty smart stuff:

or rockets for that matter...  the merkevas got stallowned last time...

They're apparently not as advanced as Hizballah mines.

Where there is a will, there is a way.

And then someone from Hizballah walked by and kicked you awake, telling you to get your delusionally drunken ass off the curb and get home.

I am Chumbawamba.

Harlequin001's picture

And this comment would be based on what Chumba?

Do you have any analytical or military information to dispute this?

Is there a reason why you seem to imply that an Israeli soldier might be inferior to an American, or that an American is as good as an Israeli?

Just curious, that's all... because it seems like the best training ground on the planet for a soldier is the Middle East, and has been the case for thousands of years...

Dr. Impossible's picture

Isn't the IDF funded with US aid?

Harlequin001's picture

I dunno, but I would not be surprised if it was...

chumbawamba's picture

The best training ground on the planet for a soldier is in a warzone, not a refugee camp in occupied territory.

Nigger please.

But if you're still not convinced...

I am Chumbawamba.

During the campaign Israel's Air Force flew more than 12,000 combat missions, its Navy fired 2,500 shells, and its Army fired over 100,000 shells.[89] Large parts of the Lebanese civilian infrastructure were destroyed, including 400 miles (640 km) of roads, 73 bridges, and 31 other targets such as Beirut's Rafic Hariri International Airport, ports, water and sewage treatment plants, electrical facilities, 25 fuel stations, 900 commercial structures, up to 350 schools and two hospitals, and 15,000 homes. Some 130,000 more homes were damaged.[104][105][106][107] The strikes also focused on Hezbollah bases, command centers, rocket launching positions, long-range rocket stockpiles, and Lebanese military bases, causing significant casualties among Hezbollah and the Lebanese Army, and destroying most of Hezbollah's long-range missiles on the ground. The Israelis launched several successful commando operations throughout the war, which inflicted significant losses on Hezbollah, and resulted in the capture of military equipment. The IDF's main ground attacks focused on Hezbollah-occupied urban areas. During clashes, Hezbollah losses were greater than those of the Israelis.[108] Israeli forces found and destroyed a large portion of Hezbollah's military infrastructure, including large quantities of arms and many hidden facilities.
