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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

‘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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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..

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.

This is not going to happen.

Bush has established a precendent of spending 6 months at the UN getting a UN resolution of approval to attack another country.

The Euros just did the same thing with Libya.

The key point is after NATO exceeded its mandate by a factor of 15,000 by bombing purely defensive Gadaffi positions, Russia and China will NEVER EVER allow any UN resolution that could even remotely be used to authorize military action against Iran.

In fact, they might introduce resolutions to get UN approval of UN troops to oppose US forces approaching Iran.

The precedent of UN approval and China/Russia's Security Council veto takes this off the table.

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


I can guarantee you that won´t happen.

If Israel actually is considering to attack Iran, I think that China is currently is figuring out a way to persuade them not to retaliate against Israel. Because if they, do, it will stand out as more legitimate for Israel to nuke Iran on a large scale, and that would might in turn harm Iran´s oil production. Iran has no real defense against an Israeli or an American attack. And they can´t retaliate in a way that would do real harm to Israel or the US. The only thing that is holding back Israel is probably the public opinion in the West. But remember that 20 % of the Americans have a religious faith which is based on the Scofield Bible, rather than traditional Christianity. That means that their reverends can point to Esther 9:16 in order to to legitimatize an attack that would result in a very large number of dead Iranians. And most others in the West are probably rather indifferent about what would happen to Iranians. In any case it is primarily the big media in the West which decide whether people will think  that it was legitimate or not to attack Iran. I think that Iran and eventually maybe also Saudi Arabia will might have to pay a high price for their reluctance to invest indirectly in Western media, reverends that are for sale (like Cyrus A. Scofield) and in other things that decide the outcome of elections and politicial decisions in the West.

If Israel attacks, I don't care who you are, what what you think you know. Iran will most definitely attack. It will launch everything it's got at the Dimona reactor. The destruction of the Dimona alone will render the whole of Israel unlivable. If Israel is stupid enough to try that, it can live with the consequences.


I for one will do no business, will help no one from Israel that supports any attack, conventional or otherwise on Iran. I am already short on patience with Zionists. If the nuke Iran, it will be open season on all Zionists all over the world. That is a given.

When will the kikes wake up and realize that no one gives a fuck about them and their little 'Holy Land' unless black liquid is involved?  Take it from someone who has read a history book:  Israel is nothing more than an oil base in the Middle East.  No one who matters cares about 'preventing another holocaust' or how 'Israel has the right to exist' and all that bullshit.  Once there is no more oil there for you to help steal, Israel will collapse in a global apathy.  You will never accomplish your plans to open the stargate that Jesus will supposedly return through.  You are a modern day guardian of the new panama canal that we call the Strait of Hormez and nothing more important.

Go read the history (and quotes) of the Rothschild family (the original Zionists) for your answer.

Neighborhood Bully


Well, the neighborhood bully, he’s just one man

His enemies say he’s on their land

They got him outnumbered about a million to one

He got no place to escape to, no place to run

He’s the neighborhood bully


The neighborhood bully just lives to survive

He’s criticized and condemned for being alive

He’s not supposed to fight back, he’s supposed to have thick skin

He’s supposed to lay down and die when his door is kicked in

He’s the neighborhood bully


The neighborhood bully been driven out of every land

He’s wandered the earth an exiled man

Seen his family scattered, his people hounded and torn

He’s always on trial for just being born

He’s the neighborhood bully


Well, he knocked out a lynch mob, he was criticized

Old women condemned him, said he should apologize.

Then he destroyed a bomb factory, nobody was glad

The bombs were meant for him. He was supposed to feel bad

He’s the neighborhood bully


Well, the chances are against it and the odds are slim

That he’ll live by the rules that the world makes for him

’Cause there’s a noose at his neck and a gun at his back

And a license to kill him is given out to every maniac

He’s the neighborhood bully


He got no allies to really speak of

What he gets he must pay for, he don’t get it out of love

He buys obsolete weapons and he won’t be denied

But no one sends flesh and blood to fight by his side

He’s the neighborhood bully


Well, he’s surrounded by pacifists who all want peace

They pray for it nightly that the bloodshed must cease

Now, they wouldn’t hurt a fly. To hurt one they would weep

They lay and they wait for this bully to fall asleep

He’s the neighborhood bully


Every empire that’s enslaved him is gone

Egypt and Rome, even the great Babylon

He’s made a garden of paradise in the desert sand

In bed with nobody, under no one’s command

He’s the neighborhood bully


Now his holiest books have been trampled upon

No contract he signed was worth what it was written on

He took the crumbs of the world and he turned it into wealth

Took sickness and disease and he turned it into health

He’s the neighborhood bully


What’s anybody indebted to him for?

Nothin’, they say. He just likes to cause war

Pride and prejudice and superstition indeed

They wait for this bully like a dog waits to feed

He’s the neighborhood bully


What has he done to wear so many scars?

Does he change the course of rivers? Does he pollute the moon and stars?

Neighborhood bully, standing on the hill

Running out the clock, time standing still

Neighborhood bully

Real Patriots understand that the Senate has been in Treasonous Rebellion and the US Corporation has been under Executive martial law ever since Lincoln was killed. 

The 14th Amendment is fraud- it was passed by a Congress that was ordered into session by a President who exceeded the level Executive power granted to him by the Constitution.  Go do some research. The Constitution does not grant the President the power to compel Congress into session to vote on Bills of the Executive Administration... It was illegal coercion, plain and simple.

Google would answer your question adequately; but just so you don't have to wade through the pages of conspiracy theory bullshit to get into some legitimate legal scholarly debate, start with this:

Your history lessons in elementary school were wrong. The 14th did not free a single slave. What it actually did was make all "US Citizens" slaves in equality under a common master (that master being UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, inc. a global enterprise incorporated in the newly formed (and sovereign) region now called the District of Columbia.)

Washington (the town) was never chartered as "Washington D.C."

When they named the town after George the cherry tree chopping, never tell a lie, cross the Potomac in winter to kick some red-coat ass Washington, the town was called Washington Town, or sometimes Georgetown.

The District of Columbia is a corporate invention- there is no American city by that name.

And by that logic being that I am a dual citizen in the US and Ireland I should have the right to threaten Britain in the papers, TV, every outlet I can find swearing to destroy it and then do everything I can to build nukes.  Because I will never forget what that country did to MY people for more than 800 years including a lot of shit FAR worse than anything the US ever did to Iran, like the death or Diaspora of 8 million Irish. 

Come on, there comes a point where you have to say what happened x number of decades ago was a mistake that should not be repeated and let it go at that.  If they seek to arm themselves with nuclear weapons in clear violation of treaties and while threatening the security of other sovereign nations (no matter your personal feelings about those nations) then they are no different from a mad rabies infected dog in the street.  Not only should we and the community of nations put them down we have a duty to put them down.  Of course these things should be handled at the lowest possible level of damage and collateral casualties, but it has to be done.  Doing this in Iraq was a tragic case of a small group of men misleading the world for personal gain, it was wrong, but to now say we can't ever do the right thing because we once did the wrong thing is utterly absurd. 

I hope the people of Iran come to their senses and depose the nut job religious madmen leading them into death and suicide, destroy the nuclear bomb making facilities, and swear off such pursuit of WMD forever, while installing a free and democratic secular government, frankly I have little hope they will before their insane leaders have nukes and use them.  And when they do it will be against the oil facilities around the Persian Gulf, they will seek to close down oil supply, they need not nuke Tel Aviv or any Israeli target, if they do they will kill more muslims than jews, Israel will eventually die on the vine and be easy pickings without US/European support, without oil we can only protect them for so long. 

Against US/Euro power they are small fry with no hope of conquest, with the US/Europe badly hurt economically they stand a chance at gaining regional power which they can build upon.  They stupidly believe the world is too weak to stand up to them as they chant for the death of other nations and build nuclear bombs, reality check, they are NOT going to be allowed to have nuclear weapons without a fight.

In what logical world is the USSA more deserving of possessing such rediculous devices in order to 'regulate' the world (I use this world EXTREMELY losely) than a bunch of dumbfuck religious raghead retards, with issues??

How is the world safer when a fucking idiot like Bush, or Obama has them?

There is no identifyable VALID MILITARY TARGET in this sub-ten-meter level of precision targeting world, that requires an average yield greater that 0.1 kiloton, in order to disable or destroy it.


Which leaves only one possible conclusion; they are NOT WEAPONS OF WAR at all, and never have been.

Good satire requires a wink and a nod to the sane intelligent audience you are entertaining by lambasting the drivel you are making fun of, that is why Stephen Colbert is so wildly popular.  But, believe it or not I have met several deeply brainwashed people that think even Colbert is actually a rightwinger.  They are so blinded by their hatreds and prejudices that they do not see the winking and nodding.  The point is that MBD does not conform to that unwritten rule of sarcastic satire that requires you get and keep permission from your audience by dropping enough hints that you will never be revealed as having really been making fun of them all along.  A perfect imitation of someone or something you are making fun of is not funny even when it is absurdly far out in left field in part because we all have known people with extreme views that were perfectly serious and MBD will continue to be junked or ignored till he takes a side and makes it obvious, that is why he gets so many junks, the right thinks they are being made fun of and the left is punishing him for not conforming to the rules of satire.

Did I blink when I shouldn't have, or did I really NOT SEE Rick Santelli on CNBC today ?

After Perry's gaffe during the debate last night, Santelli started drinking heavily.

The Iranians will be chastened. Israel will not be destroyed.

When gas is over 10$ in America, who needs things blown up, they just won't get turned on. Ever. Douche.

Iran probably does come before Pakistan because Pakistan already has nukes, which might make it a bit trickier. EIther way, the Military-Industrial complex is happy and the MSM can get everyone to wrap up in the flag in support of our brave boys. Defecits? National security interests.


PS. Israel, which has already been supplied with the larger bunker busters it needs (There are more in Diego Garcia) it will have to overfly Iraq to bomb Iran. So now that Barry has decided it might be good to keep at least one election promise and be out of Iraq by year end, we might perhaps expect to see the rhetoric getting ramped up quite soon?

The strike will take place on a day with little to no clouds and no/very little moon light.  This is how air strikes are always done.

Can someone interpret this? As a communication piece, this article is terrible. I see 3 ships on the map, all of them far from Iran. Whatever inference we are supposed to draw from this, I'm missing it.

I can see several and three of them on Irans door step. Are we looking at the same map?

He should go to the local pub and have a few drinks, then he can ponder his naval update...

I can help in less time than it take to produce a bear video.

Bibi once again shot off his mouth about attacking Iran to appear like a tough guy. Reality has again shown an old flaccid windbag.

Iran yawns.

"In home port" means.... Bond auctions not so good?
