US Preparing To Bomb Iran's Nuclear Capabilities As Soon As Next Month: Report

As the White House convenes a policy meeting on Iran Thursday involving senior Pentagon officials and cabinet advisers under national security adviser John Bolton, and after a week of intense saber-rattling by President Donald Trump and his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani, a new bombshell report by Australia's ABC says the White House is drawing up plans to strike Iran's alleged nuclear facilities as early as next month. 

Senior figures in the Australia's Turnbull government have told the ABC they believe the US is prepared to bomb Iran's nuclear capability. The bombing could be as early as next month. —ABC report

Crucially, Australia is part of the so-called "Five Eyes" global intelligence partners which includes the US, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, and plays in a key role in hosting top-secret facilities that guide American spy satellites. 

According to the breaking report, ABC [Australian Broadcasting Corporation] has learned the following based on statements of key senior defense and intelligence officials:

  • Senior Government figures have told the ABC they believe the Trump administration is prepared to bomb Iran

  • They say Australian defence facilities would likely play a role in identifying possible targets

  • But another senior source, in security, emphasizes there is a difference between providing intelligence and "active targeting"

The report cites high level Aussie government officials who say that secretive Australian defense and intelligence facilities would likely cooperate with the United States and Britain in identifying targets in a strike on Iran

One particular facility, the Pine Gap joint defense facility in the Northern Territory, would play a significant targeting role in joint US-led strikes on Iran, according to the report, it's "considered crucial among the so-called 'Five Eyes' intelligence partners... for its role in directing American spy satellites."

And further, other agencies are expected to play a role:

Analysts from the little-known spy agency Australian Geospatial-Intelligence Organisation would also be expected to play a part.

Canada would be unlikely to play a role in any military action in Iran, nor would the smallest Five Eyes security partner New Zealand, sources said.

However, though officials speaking to ABC on condition of anonymity say intelligence plans for targeting suspected Iran nuke sites have begun, Australia's foreign ministry is still seeking to avoid war through intense diplomatic efforts. 

"Australia is urging Iran to be a force for peace and stability in the region," Foreign Minister Julie Bishop told ABC's AM program on Thursday.

The report comes after President Trump's all caps twitter tirade on Sunday which warned Iran to "NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE..."

Can anyone name the last President that didn't either start an old fashioned war or "Spread Freedom and Democracy" during their stay at the White House?

Trump brings peace to Korea and no Nobel Peace Price.

Will starting a war with Iran get him that Nobel?

}}}}}}}

Is McCain dead yet? I don't want that fucker going to his grave knowing we "Bombed Iran".

}}}}}}}

Said it before, say it again...Trump made a deal with MIC..."you give me the peace prize with Korea, and I'll back you in bombing the shit out of Iran; deal?"

Step back and look at it...what effort has Trump made for peace with Iran? N.Korea threatened to nuke us, literally, and believably, and Trumps wants/pushes peace...and with Iran Trump is war, war, war from day one.

Going on record here and now.

If Trump pursues this path with Iran, I believe he will be doing so to spike the price of oil to bail out the shale oil producers, thereby bailing out the banks that have loaned them a boat load of debt. No way they come out of their hole at the current prices.

Once again it will be the average American that pays....t the pump.....to cover the losses of bad loans made by greedy financial institutions.

" Senior figures in the Australia's Turnbull government have told the ABC ...."

Guys, come on. That shit doesnt fly anymore. Anonymous sources reported by main stream media outlets isnt credible anymore. You might as well report that your hairdresser told you the same thing.

"Word around the water cooler is..." Thats not fucking news, its gossip/innuendo at best, intentionally misleading propaganda at worst.

The establishments of these so-called "Five Eyes"  the US, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand are also make up the basis of the Anglo-Zionist axis. While the same establishments have their fingers in every conceivable pie on the globe including the ownership and control of much of the world currency, credit, debt, drug trafficking, industries, plus vast investments in China, they have done so mainly at our expense by shifting capital and industry while at the same time mortgaging us with mountains of debt for generations to come. We are so debt-ridden as a citizens we dare not assert any real opposition to this thing running our spy agencies and our lives.

And tell us again how so-called israel is not tied to, if not the actual perpetrators of most all supposed Muslim attacks around the world.

"Notorious Israel-linked “terror journalist” Gutjahr crushed by German courts!"

https://www.veteranstoday.com/2018/07/22/gutjahr/

"Remember the amazing “terror journalist” Richard Gutjahr? The man with the uncanny ability to show up, pre-positioned, to take iconic footage of “Islamic terror” attacks?

Gutjahr, married to Israeli black ops specialist Einat Wilf, just happened to be on a balcony in Nice, Franceto film the beginning of the “truck attack.” His footage was essentially the ONLY footage of the event ever seen by the world.

Then one week later, Gutjahr and his daughter both just happened to be at the shopping mall in Munich where the next big “Islamic terror” event burst into the headlines. Once again, the MSM led with Gutjahr’s (and his daughter’s) footage." ......... "But even in Zionist-owned-and-operated Germany, such chutzpah was too much for the courts to stomach. Below is Wisnewski’s report on his legal victory over the hapless Gutjahr, a more obvious terror suspect than Bin Laden ever was, who obviously needs to be arrested and interrogated. Anybody out there who can rendition him?"

True, very true; but when the misleading propaganda is heard in Iran, certain xenophobic, paranoid schizophrenic Ayatollahs start to thinking maybe it`s time to sack Rouhani`s reformist government and tear up the nuclear deal with the West, which of course then puts us back to square one, only worse.

Is that the intention of the anonymous sources ?, undoubtedly, this is American MIC propaganda, it has nothing to do with genuine Australian sources.

What one needs to grasp is the oil from fracking is a temporary phenomena, a very expensive one since it takes a printing press to crank out the money needed for an unsustainable EROI (and all this only works for a while if you have a big enough printing press, a good supply of paper and ink, and a public too dumbed down or controlled to be able to reject the value of your fake money).

What worries me is that the oil supply increase due to fracking has one overwhelming advantage - it is a great source of domestically produced oil which can be useful in wartime. Think of what huge supplies of raw materials for the Fischer-Trop process would have meant for Nazi Germany. The problem is that the Deep State will feel pressured to use the local oil availability before its exhausted and it sure looks like Iran is on the menu...

Of course, a few hidden S-400 systems, upgraded S-300 systems can make an attempted strike at Iran very expensive and the huge danger for the Deep State is a swing... and a miss. The illusion of invincibility can be as fatal to the Deep State as Facebooks' apparent monopoly on social media, which is to say, all illusion sustained by the Deep State narrative spinners. Once the fabric of the matrix starts to wobble, watch out (hint - it is wobbling quite a bit even as we speak).
