With Iran This And Iran That, Here Is The Weekly US Naval Update

Tyler Durden's picture

Let's face it: with the Iranian invasion foreplay having gone on about 3 years too long, everyone is just waiting for the flashing red "GDP boosting" headline. But to know how close we are to I-day, there is one question needing an answer: where are the boats? Below we share the latest weekly update of US naval positioning, as usual courtesy of Stratfor. The chart is self explanatory: the 5th Fleet AOR is getting just a little too crowded.

When are all the corporate owned Main Stream Ass Media Channels going to train their cameras on the Tehran skyline ,on word that some 'unexpected fireworks' may erupt, during primetime (even interrupting Monday Night Football if need be), based on word from their puppet master, as war is the greatest Circus to distract the masses from the grave reality of their own personal crises ever invented?

I'm longing to hear Brian Williams' hushed voice say "[W]e think that was the sound of anti-aircraft artillery in the distance that you just heard..."

War and death; the greatest show on earth, bitchez!

C'mon Barry, maybe you can win your 2nd Nobel Peace Prize in 3 years.

Iran better not mess with Israel because if they do they are messing with the United States of America. If Iran wants to start a fight, I say bring it on – Obama is a strong leader who stands firmly behind our military and will deploy the necessary troops if necessary. America will protect Israel AT ALL COSTS, because it is vital to our strategic national interests.

Looks like their pricing in an Iran attack in oil contracts.

If Israel attacks Iran first, I hope Israel gets completely blown into the Mediterranean and wiped off the map.

SeverinSlade's picture

Then the Zionist state of Israel will be revealed as the fraud it truly is, being an agent of evil (the devil) instead of good (God).

Of course I'm not advocating violence from either side.  War is war and death is death.  But perhaps people will finally wake up to the fact that Israel is only supported by the US to control the Petrodollar and keep the pressure on China and Russia.

oh so the Devil put Israel there? I thought it was Winston Churchill. Ever notice how you never see the Devil and Churchill in the same place?? coincidence??

john39's picture

you mean they didn't all die in the holohaox (TM)????  /sarc  

shutdown's picture

No. Not all died. Certainly not 6 million either. Few believe that exaggeration anymore (or simply parrot it to keep their jobs ... or to stay out of jail), but around 300,000 Jewish people did die during that terrible time, and that ugly horror needn't be repeated .... as long as they learn to coexist.

And attacking Iran isn't exactly coexisting. So ... another horror probably awaits them. 

Harlequin001's picture

So the holocaust was their fault then was it - 'as long as they learn to coexist'

So where did you pluck this 300,000 figure from then? You make it sound as if it's small and insignificant.

Of one thing I am absolutely certain, the human race will be far better off once it introduces you to your own personal dose of Zyclone B and permanently removes you and your disgraceful ilk from the human gene pool. Simply a matter of then erasing your ass from the list and pretending you never existed.

Truly you are one utter sack of puke. Shut the fuck up.

awkward squad's picture

I thought Shutdown made some interesting points there, and you attacked him so emotionally. Did you die in the holocaust as well?


Harlequin001's picture

That's because you're a tosser.

shutdown's picture

I rest my case.

awkward squad, that poster simply offers yet another of their efforts regarding 'coexistence.'

Please have compassion toward him and his kind. 


Flakmeister's picture

Practice much at being an asshole?

Harlequin001's picture

apparently it's his full time job...

shutdown's picture

The case?

Simple: Jewish people and particularly Zionists are lousy at coexisting. They and their supporters say mean, vile things about 'others' and constantly perform economic and military violence on their neighbors.

They're greedy.

Plus, they are the epitome, the very personification, of the 1%.

That is precisely why they are politically and socially isolated and growing moreso each day.

It's why Israel will not last long.

The only plausible way by which Barry & Associates (including the Zionist warmongers) could 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.

Absent of this essential prerequisite (a false flag operation), President Soetoro will find virtually impossible persuading US Congress to issue a formal declaration of war.

Joeman34's picture

Don't you ever tire of cutting and pasting the same trite dribble into every ZH thread?  This just proves you are an intellectual lightweight devoid of creative thought.

‘Americans are a bunch of stupid animals easy to manipulate and subdue’?!?  Ha, compared to whom, the English.  Have fun sitting back and watching as the English Muslim population gradually co-opts your country from right under your up-turned, pansy-ass noses.  In only a few years they will have achieved a majority population which will allow them to be elected to key government seats and change the face of your nation from within, and lawfully, might I add.  Maybe if you English weren’t so ugly, you could stand to look at each other long enough to shag successfully so that your declining population might actually sustain some semblance of relevance. 


Please disappear.  You do your homeland a disservice by displaying your ignorance…

Absolutlely correct. Every year that passes, muslims gain more and more social, economic and political power in the UK - totally legitimately right under everyone's noses. For every one child that an indigenous white british female has, a muslim female has 3.5. The muslim population in the UK has doubled in the last 14 years, will double by '25 and double again by '40. By '65, they will have more than enough muslims to create a muslim government, and that's where it's headed. The number of non-muslim males aged 18-35 to muslim males of the same age is already almost equal in the UK. This is the age bracket for fighting wars. So, if there was a civil war in the UK in the next few years, say, who would you bet on? A bunch of lazy, work-shy, soft, welfare addicted pricks, or the highly organized, ideologically driven and devout muslims who are willing to commit suicide to win? 

The whole of Europe will become muslim majority well before the end of the century. Every single euro country is committing birth rate suicide. As Ghaddafi said "the wombs of our women will conquer europe" and he was 100% correct. it's happening right now. Demographics alone gives them a win without even fighting. If you think Europe's sllding into the abyss now, wait until the muslims take over. I can't wait for my great-grandchildren to be able to watch people being beheaded in Trafalgar Square, or to see St. Paul's Cathedral turned into a mosque with a green dome.

@wanklord No, what Iran is going to do when it gets a long range IBCM or simply send one over in a ship in the Atlantic is explode a nuclear warhead in the atmosphere above the center of the US. That will knock out the electric grid and the entire population will be dead within a year.

BigJim's picture

Thats right! Because a single nuclear warhead could do that!

I sometimes wonder why the US and USSR had thousands of the things when a single one would do the job. I guess they just wanted to have a few backups lying around, right?

they may be referring to the apocalypse dejour- an EMP pulse that will shut down the Walmart supply chain, thus killing off the couch borne American populace. either through starvation, or killing each other fighting for the last bag of funions.

We cannot blame the wars on Odummer and Co, Just because he says we have to go to war does not mean that the stupid ones should go and die for him , we are the ones to blame, for we pull the trigger thinking it is an honorable thing we do , we have to say no and stop supporting the troops because they are as stupid as he is .

john39's picture

they are luciferians.  doesn't matter if you believe it, they do...  

SeverinSlade's picture

Never said that.  But I think it's pretty safe to say that God certainly didn't.

Not to get all religious on anyone, but Christians and even many Jews point out that Jerusalem would be returned to the chosen people by God, and not by man.  Which is precisely why Israel is an agent of evil.

assembler's picture

You sound like a hard core Calvinist. The same argument goes, "If they are one of the elect, God will save them. If not, there is nothing we can do anyway." Just take a look at how God worked through history, and especially the history of the bible. Believe it or not, PEOPLE were involved in God's plan going forward. The bible makes specific promises of the Land of Israel to the children of Israel. Many of those promises are yet to be fullfilled. Those who curse Israel are cursed, those who bless her are blessed. Those like you who sit back and wait for God to do all the work (or try to undo the good work) will be exactly those who Jesus talked about in the sheep and goat judgement: "When did we not feed you, or visit you in prison?" And HE answered, "when you did not do that to the least of my brethren" (the Jews, especially the remnant). See Matthew 25.

You should look into these things before you start claiming to speak for Christians. Just read your bible!

What a major load of steaming bull shit!  You tell your "god" that if he wants any respect or even to be believed in show his psychopathic face and prove it once and for all or shut the fuck up and stay out of my bedroom!  Freedom FROM religion is the core value of this nation.  Too bad there are so many superstitious idiots that are just too fucking dumb to grasp the meaning of the word brainwashed. 

Hacked Economy's picture

"Freedom FROM religion is the core value of this nation.  Too bad there are so many superstitious idiots that are just too [...] dumb to grasp the meaning of the word brainwashed."

No, freedom OF religion/faith is a core value.  As for your comment about idiots...I've taken four separate IQ tests and always scored at the sub-genius level (about 150), as well as taught adult courses in macro-economics.  I'm no idiot (although I have a sneaking suspicion that you might call me one out of spite), and I firmly believe in God.  I respect your right to make the decision not to believe, but you betray your ignorance of others through your rant.

God certainly doesn't need your respect to take care of business.

Harlequin001's picture

What business?

Last I heard I was doing that myself...

Lest I end up like the millions of others that are currently starving as part of some grand plan.

Faith - the ability to believe the unbelievable despite the facts.

Stupidity - the ability to believe the unbelievable despite the facts.

Notice any similarity?

WOW!  What haughty and arrogant words from a mere man who is here today and gone tomorrow.  Our lives are like a vapour man.  The fact that people like you can rant and rail against God is proof of his mercy and patience.  He hopes you will turn from your anger and animosity and receive his love and forgiveness dude.  God showed his face in the most important and crucial way when he came to earth born of the virgin and ended up giving his life on the cross for every one of us....that was done to buy us back from sin's dominion over us....the thing that give's Satan Legal Claim to us.  Whether or not we receive Him into our hearts is our choice.  Biblical prophecy is happening before our eyes.  John, one of Jesus' closest disciples wrote the book of revelation as an old man and was shown the vision of our day.  The shake up in Europe is all part of the global govt system being set up.  The mark of the beast...the chip implants that John mentioned 2000 years ago are a reality now.  The annihilation of Damascus that Ezekial foresaw and the unsuccessful attack of Russia on Israel, the 200 million man army from the East(Asia) that will march to the middle east for the war of the last days....our day...are all in the works.  God showed up before we were here...put us here...and man screwed up and disobeyed.  And since then through the ages, God had to fix what man screwed up....God's plan to restore us back to himself through the death and resurrection of his son is the most important event ever regarding our lives.  There is no other remedy for the sinful nature of man!  Salvation and deliverance can only come through what Jesus did on the cross.  He who knew no sin "became sin" so that we could become the righteousness of God in and through him!  Thanks to Jesus...we can have a relationship with God again and begin to know Him and his awesome love and eternal plan for us when he comes back to set up his kingdom.  No more pain or suffering ever.  This fallen world will be restored to the perfection he initially planned before man sinned.  I know I need Christ as my saviour because I screw up every day...but I have his forgiveness and strength to pick me up from the struggles and frustrations I face in life.  Anyhow....that's what I know to be true.

Have you ever considered the possibility that God doesn't want you to be a fucking idiot all your remaining days?

Is it possible you can do far more? ... yeah, I know ... you wanna come-back with another mouthful of archaic stupid shit ... well here's some for you to ponder:





Glass Steagall's picture

You might want to read your own book – and not just the parts that suit you..

Rev. 2:9 “I know your afflictions and your poverty--yet you are rich! I know the slander of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.”

Rev. 3:9 “I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars--I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you.”

The Zionists that you lukewarm, Sabbath breaking, milk toast Christians seem to be so in love with, are nothing more than usurper Edomites. But then, you would have to have read your Old Testament FIRST to know that.. and I know you Sunday-sabbath Christians don’t like reading about how vengeful YOUR God really is..

Not that I think your silly book is worth much more than to show you idiots just how ridiculous your arguments/beliefs really are..

Harlequin001's picture

'and I know you Sunday-sabbath Christians don’t like reading about how vengeful YOUR God really is' - you mean the vengeful god that for a thousand years and more let his followers believe absolutely that the world was flat and burned people who said ortherwise? You mean that one... that poor excuse for terrible human behaviour...

Think for yourself's picture

There's a difference between waiting for god to do the work (doesn't work, obviously, just generalize to see), letting god work through you in accordance to his principles, and deciding that you know better than god how to do the job.

That's the difference between sitting in your basement watching tv, dedicating yourself to your principles (i.e. moving to israel pre-WWII and try to merge in the population) and doing whatever you think is needed to achieve the goal you want (i.e. engineering the Jesuit's Second Thirty Years War *1914-1945* in order to craft the Zionist nation of Israel).

Basically, it's simple. "The end justifies the means" is a luciferian statement. It implies sacrificing whatever principles you might hold to attain a given end. As we all know, we rarely reach an end without getting a new goal, and you end up in a state of constant non-principledness for a theoritical future state of things which is never reached.

"The ends never justify the means, the means are the end."  That is my doctrine.

iRan cheered when Libya was raped and Q-daffy was murdered.
iRan and other fucktards who supported the rape of Libya actually spread the lie that Q-daffy was a member of "the tribe".
Now that the rearguard has been cleared, will TPTB again use their idiot trolls like you to support the rape of iRan on the basis that Ahmadinefucktard is also a member of "the tribe"?
When people who refuse to trust the power-elite and its fake money are blamed for being "plutocrats who are trying to escape with their gold" like in WWII, will idiot trolls like you beg the power-elite a reward for turning them in?
