Massive IDF drill tests army's ability to send tanks across water ~ link ~ Some final preparations for the coming war.   Stirling      

Israel has just completed a major military exercise in which tanks and other ground forces were trained to be sent across rivers and other challenging bodies of water, in order to be able to neutralize missile threats deep in enemy territory, the tank brigade commander who led the drill said Thursday.

Tanks, combat engineers and various elite commando units participated in the day and night exercise — reportedly the largest of its kind in 20 years — at the Jordan River last week, Col. Enav Shalev told an Army Radio security program.

Iran: Revolutionary Guard expects Israel to Launch War ~ link Israel will eventually go beyond threats and will attack Iran, the commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guards was quoted as saying on Saturday.

As speculation mounts that Israel could launch air strikes on Iran before U.S. elections in November, Mohammad Ali Jafari told a news conference that the Jewish state would be destroyed if it took such a step, reports Reuters.

Head of Iranian Guards: "A War with Israel will occur" ~ link ~ Even as the popular ADHD affliction is preoccupied with who paid what taxes, and whether this poll shows that guy on top or this one, until tomorrow when they flip providing even more meaningless chitchat opportunities, everyone appears to have once again lost sight of the big picture, which is that two US ships continue full steam ahead toward Iran, namely the CVN-74 Stennis aircraft carrier which has crossed the Pacific ocean and is now a week away from its target, and the LHA 5 Peleliu big deck amphibious warfare ship, where they will join two other aircraft carriers and the LHD 7 Iwo Jima as summarized by the graphic below. Why is US naval presence in the Gulf soaring to a concentration not seen since the last Gulf war? The head of the Iran revolutionary guard may have an idea. From Reuters: Israel will eventually go beyond threats and will attack Iran, the commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guards was quoted as saying on Saturday.

And when a war does break out, the only question is what China, Russia and India will do. Iran's stance is clear:  "If they (Israel) start something, they will be destroyed and it will be the end of the story for them," Jafari said, according to ISNA. One thing is guarranteed: in one-two weeks US naval presence in the 5th Fleet will be unprecedented, consisting of at least 3 US aircraft carriers, and 2 amphibious warfare groups, excluding any other naval support the rest of the developed world will throw in.

World Backs Iran ~ link ~  Those nations not under the total thumb of the globalists and that of Netanyahu see the Western war maneuvers on Iran as very dangerous for all of mankind and do NOT support them.   Which only makes sense.  Stirling    

Behind the Deepening Crisis with Iran: The Real Story vs the Cover Story ~ link ~  This has never been about a Iranian nuclear is about Iran being a threat period to globalists and Israeli domination to the Middle East, and beyond that it is about Satan vs God.  Do take the time to read all of this article at the link.   Stirling      

I believe the US will exploit the situation to attack Iran's nuclear facilities. But, even more importantly, the US will target Iran's conventional missiles. Indeed, I believe this is the real reason for US sanctions in the first place, and for the buildup of tensions in recent days. Despite public perceptions, and all the rhetoric about nukes, the present crisis has nothing to do with Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program. In my opinion, that is just a cover story.

The real issue is the fact that Iran has upgraded its medium range conventionally-armed missiles with GPS technology, making its missiles much more accurate. This means Iran can now target Israel's own nuclear, bio and chemical weapons stockpiles, located inside Israel, as well as the Dimona nuclear reactor. In short, Iran has achieved a conventional deterrent to Israel. Therefor, statements by Iranian officials that Iran has no nuclear weapons program are in my view probably correct. Presently, Iran does not need nukes to deter Israel. It can do so with its GPS-guided medium range missiles. The Israelis are no doubt gnashing their teeth over this, because they now find themselves threatened by their own WMD stockpiles, and by their own nuclear reactors, especially Dimona, all of which have become targets.

Turkey mobilizes even more troops following Syrian cross-border bombardment ~ link ~ Ankara deployed artillery and anti-aircraft units to the Syria border following clashes between the Syrian army and rebels that left Turkish citizens injured, Turkish media reported on Saturday.

The deployment follows Syrian army shelling that wounded two Turkish citizens on Thursday near the border city of Sanliurfa. President Bashar Assad’s forces fired artillery rounds at rebels in an attempt to retake control of the Tel Abyad border crossing.

Turkey deploys military units along Syrian border ~ link ~ Turkey has deployed military units along its border with Syria whose Army is engaged in intense fighting with insurgents as tensions in the region escalate.

On Saturday, the Turkish army deployed artillery and anti-aircraft missiles near a Syrian border post in the province of al-Raqa, which is being disputed between security forces and insurgents in fierce clashes.

The deployment is reportedly in an area where the Turkish media say artillery fire from Syria landed last week, causing panic among local residents.

Turkey has conducted a number of troop deployments in recent months along its 911-km border with Syria, where rebels are fighting to topple President Bashar al-Assad.

FSA moves HQ from Turkey to Syria to prepare offensive against Assad ~ link ~ Also see ~ linkSyria’s main rebel group has moved its command center from the Turkish border into central Syria to prepare for an offensive against President Bashar al-Assad’s troops in Damascus. The Free Syrian Army made the announcement via video message.
It’s the first video message to be recorded by the Free Syrian Army (FSA) from Syria since the group founded its command center in Turkey 19 months ago, Al Jazeera reports. “To the Syrian people, its freedom fighters and all the armed factions, we are glad to let you know that the leadership of the FSA has moved into Syria following arrangements made with other brigades that included securing liberated areas with the hope of launching the offensive on Damascus,” FSA commander Riyad al-Assad said.

Brig. Gen. Mustafa al-Sheikh, who heads the FSA’s Military Council, said the move was made last week, but declined to give the exact location of the new headquarters, AP reports. He said the move was designed to unite all rebel groups within Syria.

'No to Beijing terrorists': Japanese stage anti-China march over islands - with video and photos ~ link ~
Hundreds of Japanese nationalists have marched through the streets of Tokyo in protest against Chinese foreign policy, as the diplomatic row between the two countries over an archipelago in the East China Sea threatens to spiral out of control.

Marshaled by Ganbare Nippon, a right-wing advocacy group famous for its attention-catching public actions, a group of at least 800 people, carried placards reading “Sink the Chinese boats in our waters” and “Do not give in to the Beijing terrorists” as they walked through the central shopping district, before arriving at the Chinese Embassy.

Israel seeks war on Iran to keep lid on 9/11 ~ link ~ Take the time to read all of this one at the link.  Stirling       

Almost every politically-aware person on the planet is puzzled by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's bizarre obsession with Iran. Netanyahu is risking his political career, his reputation, and Israel's future by intervening in the US presidential elections.

He is using all of Zionism's considerable might - including organized crime assets like “Las Vegas Godfather” Sheldon Adelson - to force Obama to attack Iran; or, failing that, to make sure that Obama is defeated by the Zionist puppet Romney. There are even rumors of Israeli-sponsored assassination attempts on Obama.

Even the rabidly pro-Zionist
Jewish Daily Forward has editorialized:

“It’s difficult to recall a time when an Israeli prime minister has inserted himself into a presidential election campaign in the way that Benjamin Netanyahu has. It’s even harder to recall a time when a trusted ally openly urged the American president to undertake a questionable, unpopular and highly risky war. We sure hope Netanyahu knows what he’s doing, because the stakes for him - and for the two nations he professes to care about the most - could not be higher.”

Jewish Daily Forward has good reasons to wonder whether Netanyahu knows what he's doing. The editorialist cites polls showing that the American people strongly oppose attacking Iran, even if war breaks out between Iran and Israel and only US intervention could save Israel! These polls show that American voters no longer give a damn whether Israel, which has chosen to live by the sword, finally dies by the sword. As Dave Lindorff observes, Netanyahu's mad obsession with pushing the US into yet another unwanted war for Israel “may have fundamentally undermined the long-standing 'special relationship' between the US and Israel.”

And still Netanyahu continues on this seemingly suicidal course. He even orders the Mossad and its CIA assets including Gladio veteran Terry Jones to unleash a rabidly anti-Islam film, spammed into the faces of every Muslim on the planet via millions of dollars of computer server time and intelligence agency expertise - an obvious attempt to fan the flames of Islamophobia and pave the way to a US war on Iran for Israel. Obama, who is on record saying he hates Netanyahu and that Netanyahu is a liar, and who knows that Netanyahu manufactured the “Innocence of Muslims” crisis to try to get Romney elected, responded by refusing to meet with Netanyahu in New York, and going on the David Letterman Show instead. A more blatant snub could hardly be imagined.

So, what in the world is Netanyahu really up to? Does he actually believe that Iran has a nuclear weapons program, even though the CIA has certified that it does not?

Of course, he doesn't really believe such nonsense. Even hard-line Israeli strategists admit that Iran appears to be only developing nuclear expertise, not actual weapons. Furthermore, Iran has not attacked another nation in centuries.
