Casus Belli? US Accuses Iran Of Plotting Assassination, Attempt To Blow Up Saudi, Israel Embassies

Tyler Durden's picture

The war watchers (such as Marc Faber and everyone else who knows what follows an episode of epic Keynesian failure) have just lowered DefCon to level 2 after in a very surprising development the US accused Iran of backing a plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the US and to blow up the Saudi and Israel embassies in Washington. "The plot was part of a $1.5m “international murder-for-hire scheme” that was directly linked to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, said Eric Holder, attorney-general." Now, any press report that details Eric Holder being active in any capacity is almost certainly a confirmation of a false flag, although we will gladly reserve judgment for now. However, if this is indeed the precursor to war, at least CVN 74 and CVN 77 will be quite busy in the next few months. Also, the price chart of Brent will surely to quite surely point from the lower left to the parabolic up.

More from the FT:

The plot was “conceived, was sponsored and was directed from Iran, and constitutes a flagrant violation of US and international law, including a convention that explicity protects diplomats from being harmed,” Mr Holder told a news conference on Tuesday. “The US is committed to holding Iran accountable for its actions.”


According to a criminal complaint filed in a New York court, two men have been charged with conspiring to kill a foreign official – Adel al-Jubeir, the Saudi envoy – and conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction – a bomb – to blow up the embassies. The two men also discussed bombing the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Argentina, US officials said on Tuesday.


Mansoor Arbabsiar, 56, a naturalised American living in Texas, was in custody and has said that he was directed by the Quds Force, the elite international arm of the IRGC, Mr Holder said. Mr Holder added that the man said he was directed by Gohlam Shakuri, an Iranian official in the Quds Force, who is still in Iran. Both men were named in the five-count charge sheet filed on Tuesday.


The Quds force is suspected of being behind attacks against US forces in Iraq and was labelled a “specially designated global terrorist organisation” by the US in 2007 for helping the Taliban and other terrorist organisations.


Officials said that a major attack had been averted.

And here is where it get hilarious:

“Although it reads like the pages of Hollywood script, the impact would have been very real and many lives would have been lost,” Robert Mueller, head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, told the press conference. “We send a clear message that any attempts on American soil will not be tolerated.”

Uh, if it reads likes a Hollywood script, and originating from the otherwise completely worthless US Attorney General's office, it probably means that it is a Hollywood Script, and is merely Washington's way of putting a few (not so) good unemployed scriptwriters to work.

Then again, it seems to be good enough for government work.

seems like a bad joke.  people are waking up to this crap, they have pushed it way beyond too far.

You mean Eric Holder is an actual person?

WOW nice diversion for Holder to distract from his ongoing indictments and calls to step down over Fast n Furious allegations! What a fraud this all is, and the start up of WW3 next!

The only way Barry & Associates (including the Zionist warmongers) can justify a war against the Islamic Republic of Iran is by staging another false flag attack on continental United States: most likely a controlled nuclear explosion (dirty bomb) targeting a major urban concentration that may kill dozens of thousands of civilians. This operation will be carried out by the CIA in partnership with Mossad and MI6 to subsequently be blamed on AlQaeda working in conjunction with elements of Iran's IRGC and Pakistan's ISI. Besides that, Americans are a bunch of stupid animals easy to manipulate and subdue. The psychological impact of this event will elicit the brute and ignorant populace to demand a massive retaliation against the alleged perpetrators (explicitly Iran); the Obama administration will need the unconditional support of these mules in order to further their agenda.

True, but do these assholes think they'll get away with another one?

why would they believe otherwise?

its worked dozens of times before

one more time ,or ten more times, as long as they control the 'news' and the TV, it will continue to be effective and, in fact, practical, not to mention just plain easy double plus good fun

Then it will be time for a "culling" session in DC and NY. Hopefully enough Americans feel the way I do. The power is in the numbers. Especially if every one of those numbers is armed.

I heard the BBC discuss this. They looked at it from all the various angles of why Iran would do such a thing... but 'forgot' to mention why our glorious USA might want to lie about them doing it.

Pathetic, absolutely pathetic. How anyone can believe this shit anymore is beyond me.

To occupy/destroy resources from 'rival' nations (China)?

Maybe 'cos ol' Muamar was trying to establish a gold-backed all-Africa dinar (and doing so without being a boot-licking client of the central banking oligarchy)?

Just 'cos we don't like brown people?

Now we know what Obama and Holder have been doing instead of prosecuting fraud on wall street.  Thank goodness they've had the right priorities all along.  They've saved us again.  My vote is assured.

I have been wondering what BS false flag accusations the U.S. and Israel were going to make against Iran to

justify Israel's planned attack of Iran. God protect the Iranian people from this madness.

the .gov should bomb the hell out of china and declare it an attack on our soil. no american casualty and hey, anytime you can fuck with china, you do it.

lolmao500's picture

Except a dirty bomb wouldn't kill that much people. No way in hell. But the medias would sure hype it all the way... and a draft would probably follows if people say we don't care, we don't want to go to war!

Which is why they hate us.  Pure jealousy.

I haven't heard anything about a dirty bomb, and even so, blowing up the Israeli Embassy might create one by sympathetically detonating the Israeli's own nuke in the basement.

I like the continued use of "Weapon of Mass Destruction" for any kind of explosive.  Under these "newspeak" terms, my Remmy 870 w/ 00 Buck is a WMD.


But it's all good.  Eric Holder doesn't hold any grudges, he just facillitates the arming of the CIA/SF trained cartels, which makes me wonder why he didn't grease the skids for his newest patsy to get into Mexico and blow up a couple of foreign Murrah Buildings....

 I tend to agree, wanklord. Holder and Obama are proven liars who are trying to distract the public from their failures. Of course, the teleprompter is also unhappy and needs the public to stop protesting, so another attempt at a false flag.

The notion that Iran, with one or two nukes would take on the fascist states of america is so ridiculous that no further thought is required. But the sheeple can be stampeded if the incident was of a nature similar to what you described. Yet, I am not 100% convinced that it would work this time, and I believe the manufactured attempt to blame the Iranians for blowing up Saudi embassies is a test balloon to gauge public reaction. In spite of MSM spinning on behalf of their masters, most americans could not give 2 sh*ts if one set of rag heads tried to destroy another. I know of many people who would be happy to see the entire lot kill themselves as long as americans are not sent to die on behalf of Haliburton

This is right out of the Nixon playbook from the Watergate era.  Expect more desperation.

Is it that hard to come up with original prose, Wanklord?  Your cut-and-pastes are really staring to annoy me.  Seems like the kind of thing a stupid animal could even do...

Joseph Jones's picture

Well, yes, but because it all serves the national interest, and helps to make us all safer, then such actions on our part are OK, right?

We are now in the seasonal window I've been warning about is conducive to World War Three:

I just emailed Prechter the following info:

Full moon is tonight. Again, between the full moon and new moon in the 7th lunar month has seen some of the largest panics in history.  Market internals and the wave count suggest Oct. 4th was a major low and a multi-week rally is underway, but seasonality is still what I'm watching since this is a predominant force in mass mood swings IMHO.

For the record:

1962 oct 13/28 (full/new moon) From - October 14, 1962 A U-2 flying over western Cuba discovers missile sites. Photographs obtained by this flight provide hard evidence that Soviets have missiles in Cuba. October 24, 1962 Soviet ships en route to Cuba with questionable cargo either slow down or reverse their course except for one. Military forces go to DEFCON 2 the highest ever in U.S. history. 1973 oct 11/26 From - Oct. 11 - Israel attacks Syria from its positions on the Golan Heights. The Soviet Union's ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Dobrynin, tells U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger that Soviet airborne forces are on the alert to defend Damascus. Kissinger warns Dobrynin that if the Soviets send troops to the Middle East, the United States would as well. Oct. 24 - A second cease-fire is put into effect, but fighting continues between Egypt and Israel. As a result, the Soviet Union threatens the United States that it will send troops to support the Egyptians. The United States puts its nuclear forces on a higher alert. The Soviet Union withdraws its threat the following day. 2011 oct 11/26 ?????

It's why they are still around, still running a major part of the western 'SHow" if you will.

They were very good at psyops, grand theater and using language to control/pervert/destroy.

You think THIS is the latest 9-11? There were no explosions, no sirens....didnt even jostle slumbering america in the least! Youll need something FAR bigger than this to stir up the sheeple! The next 9-11 will make Sept 11 2001 look like nothing!
