Iraq Conflict: Iran 'ready to help' ~ link ~ Iran knows that this is an attack against not only Iraq but itself and Syria as well. They know that they are walking into a trap here, but the stakes have been raised to a point where they cannot walk away from it. They no doubt hope to contain events, much as Putin has in the Ukraine, however, they are now "on the ground" in Iraq. Be aware that the scenario leading to a General Middle East War and the Third World War is NOW UNDERWAY!!! Stirling
Iran sends thousands of troops into Iraq to fight ISIS troops ~ link ~ So much for the "no Iran troops in Iraq" denial from Rouhani. We are now moving deeper into the End Times. Prepare for global chaos, economic collapse, global war, austerity fascism, and high-tech police state crackdowns!!! Stirling
Iran has sent 2,000 advance troops to Iraq in the past 48 hours to help tackle a jihadist insurgency, a senior Iraqi official has told the Guardian.
The confirmation comes as the Iranian president, Hassan Rouhani, said Iran was ready to support Iraq from the mortal threat fast spreading through the country, while the Iraqi prime minister, Nouri al-Maliki, called on citizens to take up arms in their country's defence.
US orders supercarrier USS George H. W. Bush battle group into Gulf waters near Iran and Iraq todayThe carrier USS George H.W. Bush will be accompanied by the guided-missile cruiser USS Philippine Sea and the destroyer USS Truxtun. ~ link ~ link ~ This article only gives two other battle group ships as being involved, the guided-missile cruiser USS Philippine Sea and the guided-missile destroyer USS Truxtun. USN supercarrier battle groups always consists of the carrier, and at least four guided-missile escorts (generally Aegis cruisers and destroyers), and at least one support ship and one or two hunter-killer nuclear-powered attack submarines. It may be that ships already in the Persian Gulf are making up the difference. In any case, don't buy into the mainstream news media Sheeple spin: That the ISIS extremists are a failure of American policy and that we are opposed to them and are acting to stop them, and may work with Iran to do so. In reality, we have and are supporting them, funding them, arming them, and ultimately commanding them!!! See my analysis that explains what is happening. And if you would, please do me a favor and post this at various sites and pass it onto your friends. It appears that we are really in deep trouble now, yet most have not make the connections.

Ukraine junta's military transport aircraft (an Il-76) shot down - 49 killed ~ link ~ Also see ~ link ~ The Russians have begun supplying man-pack ground-to-air missiles and other high tech weapons to the separatists. The effects are beginning to show. Stirling
While the world's short attention span may have been diverted to Iraq where the ISIS insurgents are now knocking on Baghdad's door, and with it - Iraq's vast southern oil fields and infrastructure (which if taken offline would send oil up to $200 according to T. Boone Pickens). the "out of sight, out of mind" conflict in Ukraine, which the western media dropped covering like a hot potato some time in early May for reasons not entirely known, continues to escalate and where the latest outbreak of violence took place overnight when a Ukraine military transport Il-76 was allegedly shot down by separatists in the city of Lugansk as it was about to land.
As a result of the crash all 49 Ukrainian service personnel on board were killed. The death toll would be the biggest suffered by government forces in a single incident since Ukraine’s government launched a military operation against pro-Russian separatists in the east.

Electronic 'war games' blamed for civilian airliners vanishing off radars across Europe ~ link ~ One more sign that NATO is very serious about a war with Russia soon!!! Stirling
Electronic military exercises were to blame for the mysterious disappearance of dozens of planes from air-traffic control screens in the heart of Europe, Slovak authorities have said. About 50 planes temporarily disappeared from radars in Austria, Germany, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia between June 5 and June 10, Austria's flight safety monitor said. German and Czech air traffic control also reported brief disappearances.
Slovakia blamed the outages on planned military exercises.
Oil Prices rise on Middle East fears ~ link ~ This coupled with the expected shutoff of Russian natural gas to the Ukraine and to Europe (as it must travel through the Ukraine) could have a very serious impact on the dying global economy! Stirling
