This chapter provides a historical perspective of US war plans directed against Iran, including the use of a preemptive nuclear attack, using low yield, “more usable” tactical nuclear weapons.  Emphasis added
***
While one can conceptualize the loss of life and destruction resulting from present-day wars including Iraq and Afghanistan, it is impossible to fully comprehend the devastation which might result from a Third World War, using “new technologies” and advanced weapons, until it occurs and becomes a reality. The international community has endorsed nuclear war in the name of world peace. “Making the world safer” is the justification for launching a military operation which could potentially result in a nuclear holocaust.”
The stockpiling and deployment of advanced weapons systems directed against Iran started in the immediate wake of the 2003 bombing and invasion of Iraq. From the outset, these war plans were led by the U.S. in liaison with NATO and Israel.
Following the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the Bush administration identified Iran and Syria as the next stage of “the road map to war”. U.S. military sources intimated at the time that an aerial attack on Iran could involve a large scale deployment comparable to the U.S. “shock and awe” bombing raids on Iraq in March 2003:
American air strikes on Iran would vastly exceed the scope of the 1981 Israeli attack on the Osiraq nuclear center in Iraq, and would more resemble the opening days of the 2003 air campaign against Iraq.1
“Theater Iran Near Term” (TIRANNT)
Code named by U.S. military planners as TIRANNT, “Theater Iran Near Term”, simulations of an attack on Iran were initiated in May 2003 “when modelers and intelligence specialists pulled together the data needed for theater-level (meaning large-scale) scenario analysis for Iran.”2
The scenarios identified several thousand targets inside Iran as part of a “Shock and Awe” Blitzkrieg:
The analysis, called TIRANNT, for “Theater Iran Near Term,” was coupled with a mock scenario for a Marine Corps invasion and a simulation of the Iranian missile force. U.S. and British planners conducted a Caspian Sea war game around the same time. And Bush directed the U.S. Strategic Command to draw up a global strike war plan for an attack against Iranian weapons of mass destruction. All of this will ultimately feed into a new war plan for “major combat operations” against Iran that military sources confirm now [April 2006] exists in draft form.
… Under TIRANNT, Army and U.S. Central Command planners have been examining both near-term and out-year scenarios for war with Iran, including all aspects of a major combat operation, from mobilization and deployment of forces through postwar stability operations after regime change.3
Different “theater scenarios” for an all-out attack on Iran had been contemplated:
The U.S. army, navy, air force and marines have all prepared battle plans and spent four years building bases and training for “Operation Iranian Freedom”. Admiral Fallon, the new head of U.S. Central Command, has inherited computerized plans under the name TIRANNT (Theatre Iran Near Term).4
In 2004, drawing upon the initial war scenarios under TIRANNT, Vice President Dick Cheney instructed U.S. Strategic Command (U.S.STRATCOM) to draw up a “contingency plan” of a large scale military operation directed against Iran “to be employed in response to another 9/11-type terrorist attack on the United States” on the presumption that the government in Tehran would be behind the terrorist plot. The plan included the pre-emptive use of nuclear weapons against a non-nuclear state:
The plan includes a large-scale air assault on Iran employing both conventional and tactical nuclear weapons. Within Iran there are more than four hundred fifty major strategic targets, including numerous suspected nuclear-weapons-program development sites. Many of the targets are hardened or are deep underground and could not be taken out by conventional weapons, hence the nuclear option. As in the case of Iraq, the response is not conditional on Iran actually being involved in the act of terrorism directed against the United States. Several senior Air Force officers involved in the planning are reportedly appalled at the implications of what they are doing –that Iran is being set up for an unprovoked nuclear attack– but no one is prepared to damage his career by posing any objections.5
The Military Road Map: “First Iraq, then Iran”
The decision to target Iran under TIRANNT was part of the broader process of military planning and sequencing of military operations. Already under the Clinton administration, U.S. Central Command (U.S.CENTCOM) had formulated “in war theater plans” to invade first Iraq and then Iran. Access to Middle East oil was the stated strategic objective:
The broad national security interests and objectives expressed in the President’s National Security Strategy (NSS) and the Chairman’s National Military Strategy (NMS) form the foundation of the United States Central Command’s theater strategy. The NSS directs implementation of a strategy of dual containment of the rogue states of Iraq and Iran as long as those states pose a threat to U.S. interests, to other states in the region, and to their own citizens. Dual containment is designed to maintain the balance of power in the region without depending on either Iraq or Iran. U.S.CENTCOM’s theater strategy is interest-based and threat-focused. The purpose of U.S. engagement, as espoused in the NSS, is to protect the United States’ vital interest in the region – uninterrupted, secure U.S./Allied access to Gulf oil.6
The war on Iran was viewed as part of a succession of military operations. According to (former) NATO Commander General Wesley Clark, the Pentagon’s military road-map consisted of a sequence of countries:
[The] Five-year campaign plan [includes]… a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan.6 (For further details, see Chapter I)
The Role of Israel
There has been much debate regarding the role of Israel in initiating an attack against Iran.
Israel is part of a military alliance. Tel Aviv is not a prime mover. It does not have a separate and distinct military agenda.
Israel is integrated into the “war plan for major combat operations” against Iran formulated in 2006 by U.S. Strategic Command (U.S.STRATCOM). In the context of large scale military operations, an uncoordinated unilateral military action by one coalition partner, namely Israel, is from a military and strategic point almost an impossibility. Israel is a de facto member of NATO. Any action by Israel would require a “green light” from Washington.
An attack by Israel could, however, be used as “the trigger mechanism” which would unleash an all-out war against Iran, as well as retaliation by Iran directed against Israel.
In this regard, there are indications going back to the Bush administration that Washington had indeed contemplated the option of an initial (U.S. backed) attack by Israel rather than an outright U.S.-led military operation directed against Iran. The Israeli attack –although led in close liaison with the Pentagon and NATO– would have been presented to public opinion as a unilateral decision by Tel Aviv. It would then have been used by Washington to justify, in the eyes of World opinion, a military intervention of the U.S. and NATO with a view to “defending Israel”, rather than attacking Iran. Under existing military cooperation agreements, both the U.S. and NATO would be “obligated” to “defend Israel” against Iran and Syria.
It is worth noting, in this regard, that at the outset of Bush’s second term, (former) Vice President Dick Cheney had hinted, in no uncertain terms, that Iran was “right at the top of the list” of the “rogue enemies” of America, and that Israel would, so to speak, “be doing the bombing for us”, without U.S. military involvement and without us putting pressure on them “to do it”8
According to Cheney:
One of the concerns people have is that Israel might do it without being asked. …Given the fact that Iran has a stated policy that their objective is the destruction of Israel, the Israelis might well decide to act first, and let the rest of the world worry about cleaning up the diplomatic mess afterwards,9
Commenting the Vice President’s assertion, former National Security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski in an interview on PBS, confirmed with some apprehension, yes: Cheney wants Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to act on America’s behalf and “do it” for us:
Iran I think is more ambiguous. And there the issue is certainly not tyranny; it’s nuclear weapons. And the vice president today in a kind of a strange parallel statement to this declaration of freedom hinted that the Israelis may do it and in fact used language which sounds like a justification or even an encouragement for the Israelis to do it.10
What we are dealing with is a process of joint U.S.-NATO-Israel military planning. An operation to bomb Iran has been in the active planning stage since 2004. Officials in the Defense Department, under Bush and Obama, have been working assiduously with their Israeli military and intelligence counterparts, carefully identifying targets inside Iran. In practical military terms, any action by Israel would have to be planned and coordinated at the highest levels of the U.S. led coalition.
An attack by Israel against Iran would also require coordinated U.S.-NATO logistical support, particularly with regard to Israel’s air defense system, which since January 2009 is fully integrated into that of the U.S. and NATO.11
Israel’s X band radar system established in early 2009 with U.S. technical support has “integrate[d] Israel’s missile defenses with the U.S. global missile [Space-based] detection network, which includes satellites, Aegis ships on the Mediterranean, Persian Gulf and Red Sea, and land-based Patriot radars and interceptors.”12
What this means is that Washington ultimately calls the shots. The U.S. rather than Israel controls the air defense system:
This is and will remain a U.S. radar system,’ Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said.
‘So this is not something we are giving or selling to the Israelis and it is something that will likely require U.S. personnel on-site to operate.13
The U.S. military oversees Israel’s Air Defense system, which is integrated into the Pentagon’s global system. In other words, Israel cannot launch a war against Iran without Washington’s consent. Hence the importance of the so-called “Green Light” legislation in the U.S. Congress sponsored by the Republican party under House Resolution 1553, which explicitly supported an Israeli attack on Iran:
The measure, introduced by Texas Republican Louie Gohmert and 46 of his colleagues, endorses Israel’s use of “all means necessary” against Iran “including the use of military force.” … “We’ve got to get this done. We need to show our support for Israel. We need to quit playing games with this critical ally in such a difficult area”.14
In practice, the proposed legislation serves as a “Green Light” to the White House and the Pentagon rather than to Israel. It constitutes a rubber stamp to a U.S. sponsored war on Iran which uses Israel as a convenient military launch pad. It also serves as a justification to wage war with a view to defending Israel.

In this context, Israel could indeed provide the pretext to wage war, in response to alleged Hamas or Hezbollah attacks and/or the triggering of hostilities on the border of Israel with Lebanon. What is crucial to understand is that a minor “incident” could be used as a pretext to spark off a major military operation against Iran.
Known to U.S. military planners, Israel (rather than the U.S.A) would be the first target of military retaliation by Iran. Broadly speaking, Israelis would be the victims of the machinations of both Washington and their own government. It is, in this regard, absolutely crucial that Israelis forcefully oppose any action by the Netanyahu government to attack Iran.
Global Warfare: The Role of U.S. Strategic Command (USTRATCOM)
In January 2005, at the outset of the military deployment and build-up directed against Iran, U.S.STRATCOM was identified as “the lead Combatant Command for integration and synchronization of DoD-wide efforts in combating weapons of mass destruction.”15 What this means is that the coordination of a large scale attack on Iran, including the various scenarios of escalation in and beyond the broader Middle East Central Asian region would be coordinated by U.S.STRATCOM. (See Chapter I).
Confirmed by military documents as well as official statements, both the U.S. and Israel contemplate the use of nuclear weapons directed against Iran. In 2006, U.S. Strategic Command (U.S.STRATCOM) announced it had achieved an operational capability for rapidly striking targets around the globe using nuclear or conventional weapons. This announcement was made after the conduct of military simulations pertaining to a U.S. led nuclear attack against a fictional country.16
Continuity in Relation to the Bush-Cheney Era
President Obama has largely endorsed the doctrine of pre-emptive use of nuclear weapons formulated by the previous administration. Under the 2010 Nuclear Posture Review, the Obama administration confirmed “that it is reserving the right to use nuclear weapons against Iran” for its non-compliance with U.S. demands regarding its alleged (nonexistent) nuclear weapons program.17 The Obama administration has also intimated that it would use nukes in the case of an Iranian response to an Israeli attack on Iran. Israel has also drawn up its own “secret plans” to bomb Iran with tactical nuclear weapons:
Israeli military commanders believe conventional strikes may no longer be enough to annihilate increasingly well-defended enrichment facilities. Several have been built beneath at least 70ft of concrete and rock. However, the nuclear-tipped bunker-busters would be used only if a conventional attack was ruled out and if the United States declined to intervene, senior sources said.18
Obama’s statements on the use of nuclear weapons against Iran and North Korea are consistent with post-9/11 U.S. nuclear weapons doctrine, which allows for the use of tactical nuclear weapons in the conventional war theater.
Through a propaganda campaign which has enlisted the support of “authoritative” nuclear scientists, mini-nukes are upheld as an instrument of peace, namely a means to combating “Islamic terrorism” and instating Western style “democracy” in Iran. The low-yield nukes have been cleared for “battlefield use”. They are slated to be used against Iran and Syria in the next stage of America’s “War on Terrorism” alongside conventional weapons:
Administration officials argue that low-yield nuclear weapons are needed as a credible deterrent against rogue states. [Iran, Syria, North Korea] Their logic is that existing war. Potential enemies realize this, thus they do not consider the threat of nuclear retaliation to be credible. However, low-yield nuclear weapons are less destructive, thus might conceivably be used. That would make them more effective as a deterrent.19
The preferred nuclear weapon to be used against Iran are tactical nuclear weapons (Made in America), namely bunker buster bombs with nuclear warheads (for example, B61-11), with an explosive capacity between one third to six times a Hiroshima bomb.
The B61-11 is the “nuclear version” of the “conventional” BLU 113. or Guided Bomb Unit GBU-28. It can be delivered in much same way as the conventional bunker buster bomb.20
While the U.S. does not contemplate the use of strategic thermonuclear weapons against Iran, Israel’s nuclear arsenal is largely composed of thermonuclear bombs which are deployed and could be used in a war with Iran. Under Israel’s Jericho III missile system with a range between 4,800 km to 6,500 km, all Iran would be within reach.
Radioactive Fallout
The issue of radioactive fallout and contamination, while casually dismissed by U.S.-NATO military analysts, would be devastating, potentially affecting a large area of the broader Middle East (including Israel) and Central Asian region.
In an utterly twisted logic, nuclear weapons are presented as a means to building peace and preventing “collateral damage”. Iran’s nonexistent nuclear weapons are a threat to global security, whereas those of the U.S. and Israel are instruments of peace “harmless to the surrounding civilian population.”
“The Mother of All Bombs” (MOAB) Slated to be Used against Iran

Of military significance within the U.S. conventional weapons arsenal is the 21,500-pound “monster weapon” nicknamed the “mother of all bombs” The GBU-43/B or Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb (MOAB) was categorized “as the most powerful non-nuclear weapon ever designed” with the the largest yield in the U.S. conventional arsenal. The MOAB was tested in early March 2003 before being deployed to the Iraq war theater. According to U.S. military sources, The Joint Chiefs of Staff had advised the government of Saddam Hussein prior to launching the 2003 that the “mother of all bombs” was to be used against Iraq. (There were unconfirmed reports that it had been used in Iraq).
The U.S. Department of Defense already confirmed in 2009 that it intends to use the “Mother of All Bombs” (MOAB) against Iran. The MOAB is said to be ”ideally suited to hit deeply buried nuclear facilities such as Natanz or Qom in Iran”21. The truth of the matter is that the MOAB, given its explosive capacity, would result in significant civilian casualties. It is a conventional “killing machine” with a nuclear type mushroom cloud.
The procurement of four MOABs was commissioned in October 2009 at the hefty cost of $58.4 million, ($14.6 million for each bomb). This amount includes the costs of development and testing as well as integration of the MOAB bombs onto B-2 stealth bombers. This procurement is directly linked to war preparations in relation to Iran. The notification was contained in a ninety-three-page “reprograming memo” which included the following instructions:
“The Department has an Urgent Operational Need (UON) for the capability to strike hard and deeply buried targets in high threat environments. The MOP [Mother of All Bombs] is the weapon of choice to meet the requirements of the UON [Urgent Operational Need].” It further states that the request is endorsed by Pacific Command (which has responsibility over North Korea) and Central Command (which has responsibility over Iran).23
The Pentagon is planning on a process of extensive destruction of Iran’s infrastructure and mass civilian casualties through the combined use of tactical nukes and monster conventional mushroom cloud bombs, including the MOAB and the larger GBU-57A/B or Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP), which surpasses the MOAB in terms of explosive capacity.
The MOP is described as “a powerful new bomb aimed squarely at the underground nuclear facilities of Iran and North Korea. The gargantuan bomb–longer than eleven persons standing shoulder-to-shoulder or more than twenty feet base to nose”.24
These are WMDs in the true sense of the word. The not so hidden objective of the MOAB and MOP, including the American nickname used to casually describe the MOAB (“Mother of all Bombs”), is “mass destruction” and mass civilian casualties with a view to instilling fear and despair.
State of the Art Weaponry: “War Made Possible Through New Technologies”
The process of U.S. military decision making in relation to Iran is supported by Star Wars, the militarization of outer space and the revolution in communications and information systems. Given the advances in military technology and the development of new weapons systems, an attack on Iran could be significantly different in terms of the mix of weapons systems, when compared to the March 2003 Blitzkrieg launched against Iraq. The Iran operation is slated to use the most advanced weapons systems in support of its aerial attacks. In all likelihood, new weapons systems will be tested.
The 2000 Project for the New American Century (PNAC) document entitled Rebuilding American Defenses, outlined the mandate of the U.S. military in terms of large scale theater wars, to be waged simultaneously in different regions of the World: “Fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars”. (See Chapter I)
This formulation is tantamount to a global war of conquest by a single imperial superpower. The PNAC document also called for the transformation of U.S. forces to exploit the “revolution in military affairs”, namely the implementation of “war made possible through new technologies”. 25 The latter consists in developing and perfecting a state of the art global killing machine based on an arsenal of sophisticated new weaponry, which would eventually replace the existing paradigms.
Thus, it can be foreseen that the process of transformation will in fact be a two-stage process: first of transition, then of more thoroughgoing transformation. The breakpoint will come when a preponderance of new weapons systems begins to enter service, perhaps when, for example, unmanned aerial vehicles begin to be as numerous as manned aircraft. In this regard, the Pentagon should be very wary of making large investments in new programs –tanks, planes, aircraft carriers, for example– that would commit U.S. forces to current paradigms of warfare for many decades to come.26
The war on Iran could indeed mark this crucial break-point, with new space-based weapons systems being applied with a view to disabling an enemy which has significant conventional military capabilities including more than half a million ground forces.
Electromagnetic Weapons
Electromagnetic weapons could be used to destabilize Iran’s communications systems, disable electric power generation, undermine and destabilize command and control, government infrastructure, transportation, energy, etc. Within the same family of weapons, environmental modifications techniques (ENMOD) (weather warfare) developed under the HAARP program could also be applied.27 These weapons systems are fully operational. In this context, the U.S. Air Force document AF 2025 explicitly acknowledged the military applications of weather modification technologies:
Weather modification will become a part of domestic and international security and could be done unilaterally. … It could have offensive and defensive applications and even be used for deterrence purposes. The ability to generate precipitation, fog, and storms on earth or to modify space weather, improve communications through ionospheric modification (the use of ionospheric mirrors), and the production of artificial weather all are a part of an integrated set of technologies which can provide substantial increase in U.S., or degraded capability in an adversary, to achieve global awareness, reach, and power.28
Electromagnetic radiation enabling “remote health impairment” might also be envisaged in the war theater.29 In turn, new uses of biological weapons by the U.S. military might also be envisaged as suggested by the PNAC: “[A]dvanced forms of biological warfare that can ‘target’ specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool.”30
Iran’s Military Capabilities: Medium and Long-range Missiles
Iran has advanced military capabilities, including medium and long-range missiles capable of reaching targets in Israel and the Gulf States. Hence the emphasis by the U.S.-NATO Israel alliance on the use of nuclear weapons, which are slated to be used either pre-emptively or in response to an Iranian retaliatory missile attack.
In November 2006, Iran tests of surface missiles two were marked by precise planning in a carefully staged operation. According to a senior American missile expert, “the Iranians demonstrated up-to-date missile-launching technology which the West had not known them to possess.”31 Israel acknowledged that “the Shehab-3, whose 2,000-km range brings Israel, the Middle East and Europe within reach”.32
According to Uzi Rubin, former head of Israel’s anti-ballistic missile program, “the intensity of the military exercise was unprecedented… It was meant to make an impression – and it made an impression.”33
The 2006 exercises, while creating a political stir in the U.S. and Israel, did not in any way modify U.S.-NATO-Israeli resolve to wage war on Iran.
Tehran has confirmed in several statements that it will respond if it is attacked. Israel would be the immediate object of Iranian missile attacks as confirmed by the Iranian government. The issue of Israel’s air defense system is therefore crucial. U.S. and allied military facilities in the Gulf states, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Iraq could also be targeted by Iran.
Iran’s Ground Forces
While Iran is encircled by U.S. and allied military bases, the Islamic Republic has significant military capabilities. What is important to acknowledge is the sheer size of Iranian forces in terms of personnel (army, navy, air force) when compared to U.S. and NATO forces serving in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Confronted with a well-organized insurgency, coalition forces are already overstretched in both Afghanistan and Iraq. Would these forces be able to cope if Iranian ground forces were to enter the existing battlefield in Iraq and Afghanistan? The potential of the Resistance movement to U.S. and allied occupation would inevitably be affected.
Iranian ground forces are of the order of 700,000 of which 130,000 are professional soldiers, 220,000 are conscripts and 350,000 are reservists.34 There are 18,000 personnel in Iran’s Navy and 52,000 in the Air Force. According to the International Institute for Strategic Studies, “the Revolutionary Guards has an estimated 125,000 personnel in five branches: Its own Navy, Air Force, and Ground Forces; and the Quds Force (Special Forces).”
According to the CISS, Iran’s Basij paramilitary volunteer force controlled by the Revolutionary Guards “has an estimated 90,000 active-duty full-time uniformed members, 300,000 reservists, and a total of 11 million men that can be mobilized if need be”35, In other words, Iran can mobilize up to half a million regular troops and several million militia. Its Quds special forces are already operating inside Iraq.
U.S. Military and Allied Facilities Surrounding Iran
For several years now, Iran has been conducting its own war drills and exercises. While its Air Force has weaknesses, its intermediate and long-range missiles are fully operational. Iran’s military is in a state of readiness. Iranian troop concentrations are currently within a few kilometers of the Iraqi and Afghan borders, and within proximity of Kuwait. The Iranian Navy is deployed in the Persian Gulf within proximity of U.S. and allied military facilities in the United Arab Emirates.
It is worth noting that in response to Iran’s military build-up, the U.S. has been transferring large amounts of weapons to its non-NATO allies in the Persian Gulf including Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.
While Iran’s advanced weapons do not measure up to those of the U.S. and NATO, Iranian forces would be in a position to inflict substantial losses to coalition forces in a conventional war theater, on the ground in Iraq or Afghanistan. Iranian ground troops and tanks in December 2009 crossed the border into Iraq without being confronted or challenged by allied forces and occupied a disputed territory in the East Maysan oil field.
Even in the event of an effective Blitzkrieg, which targets Iran’s military facilities, its communications systems etc., through massive aerial bombing, using cruise missiles, conventional bunker buster bombs and tactical nuclear weapons, a war with Iran, once initiated, could eventually lead into a ground war. This is something which U.S. military planners have no doubt contemplated in their simulated war scenarios.
An operation of this nature would result in significant military and civilian casualties, particularly if nuclear weapons are used.
Within a scenario of escalation, Iranian troops could cross the border into Iraq and Afghanistan.
In turn, military escalation using nuclear weapons could lead us into a World War III scenario, extending beyond the Middle-East – Central Asian region.
In a very real sense, this military project, which has been on the Pentagon’s drawing board for more than ten years, threatens the future of humanity.
Our focus in this chapter has been on war preparations. The fact that war preparations are in an advanced state of readiness does not imply that these war plans will be carried out.
The U.S.-NATO-Israel alliance realizes that the enemy has significant capabilities to respond and retaliate. This factor in itself has been crucial in the decision by the U.S. and its allies to postpone an attack on Iran.
Another crucial factor is the structure of military alliances. Whereas NATO has become a formidable force, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), which constitutes an alliance between Russia and China and a number of former Soviet Republics has been significantly weakened.
The ongoing U.S. military threats directed against China and Russia are intended to weaken the SCO and discourage any form of military action on the part of Iran’s allies in the case of a U.S. NATO Israeli attack.

The Globalization of War: America’s “Long War” against Humanity

Michel Chossudovsky

The “globalization of war” is a hegemonic project. Major military and covert intelligence operations are being undertaken simultaneously in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, sub-Saharan Africa, Central Asia and the Far East. The U.S. military agenda combines both major theater operations as well as covert actions geared towards destabilizing sovereign states.

2 Tankers Damaged After Torpedo Attack Near Strait Of Hormuz; Oil Soars




Update 3: Managers at the companies that own the tankers have weighed in on Thursday's attacks. The manager of the Kokuka Courageous described the incident as a "hostile attack," and DHT Holdings and Heidmar, the owners of the two tankers, have suspended new bookings to the Gulf.

* * *
Update 2: It appears earlier reports that the Front Altair had sunk were, in fact, incorrect. The ship's captain has said that it is still afloat. VHF radio traffic confirmed that it is damaged but still afloat.
Hours have passed since the suspected attacks, and still nobody has claimed responsibility. Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has noted how suspicious it is that a Japanese owned vessel would be attacked while Iranian leaders were meeting with the Japanese prime minister in Tehran.

And as one BBG analyst pointed out: "Fingers will certainly be pointed at Iran as the mastermind behind these events. But the potential benefits to the Persian Gulf nation are outweighed by the risks. And even if Tehran isn't responsible, it will still suffer the consequences."
Several American warships were nearby when the attack unfolded, per radio traffic, which also showed some signs of tensions with Iranian vessels: "American warship identifying itself as 'Coalition Warship' stating they have multiple vessels and aircraft in the vicinity. Iranian Navy calling vessels asking their intention in the area."

Meanwhile, the first reported photos of the deck of the Front Altair have surfaced online...and it certainly looks like the ship was hit by a torpedo-like projectile.

Update: The Front Altair, the Marshall Islands flag tanker damaged in Thursday's attacks, has now sunk, according to Iranian television. Later, others denied these reports.
If accurate, the sinking could have a serious impact on oil prices and the environment, as the ship contained twice the amount of oil as Exxon-Valdez.
While some sources cited torpedoes as the weapons used in the attacks, another said officials suspected the use of a magnetic mine, similar to the devices used during last month's attacks.

And just like that...war with Iran is now almost assured.
Roughly one month after the US accused Iran of attacking Saudi- and UAE-docked oil tankers with naval mines in the Strait of Hormuz, two oil tankers were attacked in the Sea of Oman (not far from where the prior attacks occurred), leaving both ships seriously damaged, Bloomberg reports.
So far, no casualties have been reported. The attack left one of the ships "ablaze and adrift," according to the Associated Press.
Sailors from both vessels were being evacuated as the US Navy rushed to assist.

The Bahrain-based US Fifth Fleet said it received distress signals from the two ships roughly 50 minutes apart. As BBG reports, the incident will almost certainly "inflame" tensions between the US and its Arab allies on one hand, and Iran on the other.
The development will inflame already-rising political tensions in the region weeks after four vessels, including two Saudi oil tankers, were sabotaged in what the U.S. said was an Iranian attack using naval mines. Tehran denied the charge.
The Bahrain-based Fifth Fleet said it received two separate distress signals at 6:12 a.m. and about 7:00 a.m. local time. "U.S. Navy ships are in the area and are rendering assistance," Commander Josh Frey, a spokesman, said. Iran said it has rescued 44 sailors.
Though a suspected aggressor has not yet been officially named, and an investigation into the cause of the incident has only just begun, the notion that Iran will be implicated looks extremely likely, even as South Korean and Iranian ships helped rescue all 44 sailors who were aboard the two ships. Iran has already denied responsibility for the attack.

BBG
The manager of one of the tankers, the Panama-flagged, Japanese-owned Kokuka Courageous, which had been carrying a cargo of methanol from Saudi Arabia to Singapore, said the vessel had been damaged as the result of "a suspected attack" by a "shell" though the manager added that the ship's cargo was secure.
"The hull has been breached above the water line on the starboard side," Bernhard Schulte GmbH & Co KG said in a statement on its website.
Another tanker, Norwegian-owned and Marshall Islands-flagged Front Altair, sent a distress signal to the UAE port of Fujairah. It had loaded an oil shipment in Abu Dhabi not long before the incident. The ship was reportedly hit with three explosions.
Officials said it appeared the ships had been attacked with torpedoes. Another report cited officials saying three detonations had been heard.
The Front Altair was delivering a cargo of naphtha to Taiwan refiner CPC Corp, one company official said. The cargo was supplied by Abu Dhabi’s Adnoc.
Considering the involvement of the Japan-flagged vessel, the timing of the incident would be ironic. The suspected attacks unfolded as Japanese PM Shinzo Abe met with Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Thursday, the second and final day of his visit, which was intended to de-escalate tensions in the region. There were no immediate details about what they discussed.
Oil prices are popping higher on the news, as the latest replay of one of history's most famous false-flag naval attacks, the Gulf of Tonkin incident, which helped precipitate the Vietnam war, ratchets up tensions in the region. At one point, Brent crude was up as much as 4% to over $62 a barrel.
bbg
At the very least, the US military will use the attack as an excuse to continue its escalation of personnel in one of the most sensitive waterways for the global oil trade. According to the EIA, 19% of all oil traded by sea passes through the Strait of Hormuz.
EIA
Worst case, it looks like NSA John Bolton may have just gotten the excuse he needs to justify a full-scale invasion of Iran, which we imagine will soon be confirmed as being behind the attacks.

OPERATION GLADIO C: Government-Sponsored Domestic Terrorism



How the CIA’s MKUltra Mind Control Program Creates ‘Mass Shooters’ and Turns ‘Lone Gunmen’ Into Patsies



OPERATION GLADIO C


“The United States has been under the complete control of the “Very Deep State” (much deeper than Deep State) for decades. The “Very Deep State” (VDS) uses the alphabet soup agencies of the U.S. Intelligence Community to monitor and police every sphere of life in American society.  Just like the Soviet Union of the last century, there are no secrets.  Only now there really are NO secrets anywhere in the 50 states.  Not only is there is a vast network of undercover citizen spies who operate in every county, agents of the VDS are surreptitiously inserted into every organization of note nationwide.  The present National Security State, with its full-spectrum surveillance regime and spying apparatus, actually functions as a full-blown, communist police state (where the FBI=KGB, literally).  The Shadow Government (a clandestine, autocratic and all-powerful global entity), that oversees the U.S. Federal Government, uses Operation Gladio C (via NATO command and control) to manufacture consent via government-sponsored terrorism.  Mass shootings, in particular, are methodically used in this way to terrorize the body politic into supporting draconian measures that erode national sovereignty. Undermining the American Republic is the single most important objective of Operation Gladio C.  Other nations are experiencing their own versions of Operation Gladio C as seen throughout the European Union, the Middle East, South Asia, Central and South America, Mexico, etc.”

Thank you! 

The United States of America has been under relentless terror attacks by foreign and domestic agents of the New World Order globalist cabal.  All of these false flag terrorist operations are carried out under the rubric of Operation Gladio C, a super-secret enterprise and organizational derivative of NATO’s notorious “Operation Gladio”.  The following article explains how Obama illicitly completed the legal framework which permits this state-sponsored terrorism on U.S. soil.
“FALSE FLAGS” are LEGAL PROPAGANDA Produced by the Department of Defense
“Operation Gladio” is well-known throughout intelligence circles and military leadership worldwide as a covert and ongoing NATO-run terrorist operation.  Those intel and secret service agents, with firsthand knowledge of NATO’s many false flag terrorist attacks conducted in Europe and the United States, quietly call it the “North Atlantic Terrorist Organization”.
That’s not to say that Operation Gladio (OG) conducts their terror attacks by themselves.  There is now a prodigious body of evidence — circumstantial, anecdotal and hard proof — on the Internet which points directly to their intimate collaboration with the CIA, FBI, NSA, DHS, DOD, local law enforcement, as well as many other silent partners (e.g. SERCO) in the execution of the OG black operations.

Foreign Outsourcing Giant SERCO Takes Over the US National Security State


Operation Gladio C

Virtually every mass shooting and bombing that has taken place in the USA since President John F. Kennedy held office has been carried out according to the dictates of NATO’s Operation Gladio C.

KEY POINT: Why NATO? Why SERCO? Just like the FISAgate scandal revealed that Great Britain’s FusionGPS fabricated the fake Trump dossier and Wiretapgate exposed the UK’s GCHQ as unlawfully conducting electronic surveillance of Trump Tower, the Brits are regularly used to distance the American perps from the U.S. crime scene. (This also is why British Petroleum was chosen as the villain for the 2010 BP Gulf oil spill—a MIHOP black operation.)  NATO is similarly utilized, especially the British military leadership, to oversee Operation Gladio C in order to assert plausible deniability should serious exposure occur.  SERCO, headquartered in Hook, Hampshire, England, United Kingdom, performs all the behind-the-scenes detail work necessary to successfully manage the cover ups.

An objective assessment of the 3 biggest bombings on the U.S. mainland since 1990 clearly indicates government-sponsored terrorism.  Even though the official record does not indict (or even indicate) any government participation (read: FBI, ATF, CIA) with these major terrorist attacks, they simply could not have been conducted without the U.S. government’s foreknowledge and active involvement, particularly with the transparent cover-ups.
(1)  1993 World Trade Center bombing 
(2)  1995 Oklahoma City bombing  
(3)  2001 Terrorist Attacks on World Trade Center and Pentagon
Furthermore, it has been proven, both scientifically and practically, that each of these bombings could only have been executed with the support of criminal elements within the FBI as well as other rogue agencies within the U.S. Federal Government .  In each case, those who were accused and/or indicted of these grievous crimes were falsely convicted and harshly sentenced for atrocities they did not commit.
To ‘successfully’ implement the foregoing major criminal conspiracies required a massive and highly organized network of co-conspirators.  Such an effective and sophisticated network must have had the full cooperation of the U.S. Intelligence Community to include the CIA, FBI, NSA, and DIA at the very least.
Because of the sheer depth and breadth of these false flag black operations, these 3 major attacks on America must have also received tacit approval and material support from countless agents of Deep State throughout all three branches of the U.S. government.  The entire Military-Industrial Complex as well as the Silicon Valley Tech Corporations are likewise conscripted to support these blackops as follows: Why did Google Earth conspicuously censor Internet photos of missing security camera next to the Parkland FL high school entrance door?
This is exactly how Operation Gladio C works.  It utilizes the very same strategies and tactics that Operation Gladio A and B use only applies them specifically to domestic mass casualty events (MCE).  These meticulously staged attacks are executed as false flag operations designed to terrorize the American people.

Strategy of tension

Terrorism by its very nature creates an atmosphere of extreme tension (and fear) wherever it is perpetrated.  The very purpose of Operation Gladio C is to generate so much tension throughout the United States that the body politic will concede to whatever demands the political class is cynically legislating on behalf of their NWO masters.  In fact, laws are now systematically made this way; manufactured consent paves the way for oppressive legislation that further subjugates the citizenry.
It was the deliberate implementation of this “strategy of tension” throughout Europe that allowed the totalitarian superstate — the European Union (EU) — to be established.  The false promise to eliminate war between member nations was held high as a byproduct of the EU.  So was the false expectation to eradicate terrorism Europewide which has instead significantly increased.

EU Exposé: A Planned Totalitarian Superstate to Destroy Europe


Ever since the 9/11 false flag terrorist attacks — a classic “Operation Gladio” project — the United States has seen a dramatic uptick in state-sponsored mass casualty events.  Many of these have taken the form of mass shootings and bombings.  However, it is specifically school massacres via a lone gunman which have disproportionately increased.
While the Las Vegas massacre is an obvious exception to the pattern, that October 1st Harvest Music Festival shooting spree was also a typical Operation Gladio C psyop.  Which is exactly why it was disappeared from the Mainstream Media (MSM) new reports so quickly; it contained inexplicable elements that revealed it to be a very sophisticated and highly organized CIA-directed, FBI-protected black operation. See: 30 FBI Agents checked into Mandalay Bay Hotel 1-2 days before Vegas shooting?
When these mass shootings are staged in schools, it’s clear that there is a highly calculated agenda.  Not only did the recent Florida high school MCE produce a torrent of MSM coverage (sometimes know as Operation Mockingbird propaganda), it was all focused on stripping the American people of their gun rights with the ultimate goal of repealing the Second Amendment.  The Parkland, FL mass shooting also served to change the national conversation from the ever-worsening FISAgate scandal, which it did.  The article below spells it all out.

VALENTINE’S DAY MASSACRE: Here’s why the Florida high school mass shooting was a false flag black operation

Mass Shootings: Brought to the USA by Operation Gladio C

It’s essential to understand the correct organizational structure which is responsible for coordinating and executing these never-ending school massacres.  Operation Gladio C is the code name given to over-arching strategic plan which guides these terror black ops.

KEY POINT: The primary reason that homegrown terrorists are trained to commit acts of domestic terrorism under the command of Operation Gladio C is that military officers cannot disobey orders.  If they do, they risk their careers.  They also make themselves vulnerable to prosecution, which is always conducted under a cloak of secrecy due to bogus ‘national security’ concerns.  This is similar to the patently illegal chemtrail spraying program, which is also a massive military operation directed by the U.S. Air Force and known as OPERATION INDIGO SKYFOLD.

The peak decision-making process is informed by the central planners within the US military and NATO leadership who have overseen the European franchise of  “Operation Gladio” since World War II.  “Operation Gladio” is still very much in play today as it was when the Red Brigades and Baader-Meinhof Gang (both left-wing terrorist groups) were terrorizing Europe in the 1970s and early 1980s.  The recent terrorist attacks on the European Continent are also a testament to this as are the Al Qaeda, ISIS and Daesh terror MCEs staged across the Middle East.
Here in the states, all of the necessary organs of government are involved with the planning and execution of the MCEs, each of which are required for flawless execution.  The US Army, FBI, CIA, DIA, DHS, ATF, and local law enforcement each have their respective roles to play, but they do so on a strictly need-to-know basis and in a highly compartmentalized fashion.  This ensures that no single entity or individual knows too much or can compromise these exceedingly covert black operations.
In an effort to guarantee success and avoid exposure of the MCE, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is always chosen to play a crucial role.  As the nation’s premier law enforcement agency, the FBI is assigned to control the crime scene just as they control the narrative that is fed to the MSM.  They do this both upfront during media blitzes and from behind the scenes.  Who could ever forget the FBI special agent hovering over the Las Vegas sheriff during the press briefings in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting psyop.

Federal Bureau of Investigation = America’s GESTAPO

The number of incidents that define the FBI as a stone-cold secret state police force are too many to catalogue here.  Nevertheless, it’s now clear that the Bureau has always operated as a jackbooted gang of heavily armed thugs.  Here’s another short (yet more comprehensive) list of just a few of the FBI’s most heinous crimes and profound betrayals against the American people.  Some of these institutional crimes were perpetrated in close coordination with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, another rogue agency.
• 2001 Cover-up of 9/11 terrorist attacks
• 1995 Oklahoma City bombing  
• 1993 World Trade Center bombing 
• 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting (crime and coverup)
• 1993 Waco siege and firebombing
• 2015 Twin Peaks shootout in Waco TX
• 1992 Ruby Ridge murders of Randy Weaver’s wife and child
• 2016  Oregon murder of patriot LaVoy Finicum

Many bikers wondered how the ATF was on the scene so fast at Twin Peaks as were FBI agents and county sheriffs. Some were convinced that undercover FEDs actually started the shooting.
Hence, it ought to be apparent that only a Stasi-styled agency like the FBI could be intimately involved as an accomplice in such a broad range of criminal activities as these.

FBI as government-run protection racket

The brutal reality is that the FBI truly functions as the American secret state police, as it was established to be.  Given the many shocking disclosures that have come out since Trump’s presidency, it’s evident that the FBI is a rogue federal agency that has absolutely nothing to do with law enforcement.  The FBI operates much more like a protection racket providing muscle and implementing cover-ups whenever necessary.
The myriad crime sprees, that the FBI facilitates and/or covers up, are actually committed by career criminal politicians, corporate crooks, international banksters and an assortment of other high-level gangsters and felons.  The list of VIP lawbreakers literally reads like a Who’s Who of American high society.
There’s no better example of this than the Clinton Crime Family (some really believe Bonnie & Clyde reincarnated as Hill & Bill).  There’s now hard evidence scattered throughout the public domain which demonstrates the complicity of the FBI in the ongoing Clinton crime wave.  That crime wave began long before the recent spate of Clinton scandals variously known as: RussiagateFISAgateDossiergate, Intelgate, Uraniumgate, WiretapgateEmailgateWeinergate, ISISgate, Benghazigate, etc.  Many believe that the multitude of institutional abuses of FISAgate alone demands that the FBI be shut down…for good!

“FISA Memo” Crimes Demand the Immediate Dismantling of the FBI

Before the Clintons, of course, there was the Bush Crime Syndicate.  The Bush’s Cocaine smuggling operation at Arkansas’ Mena Airport (while Clinton was AR governor), as well as the Savings and Loan scandal under President George H.W. Bush (his son Neil was sued by the FDIC), are just 2 examples of the deeply entrenched criminality at the highest echelons of American government.

Back to Operation Gladio C

This country has some extremely serious problems concerning Operation Gladio C.
It’s very important to point out that no other nation on Earth is so challenged by mass shootings the way the USA is.  Just why is that?  Really, why is this country plagued by so many school massacres?!  There’s not a week that goes by that there is not a shooting in a school somewhere in America.  When compared to all the other countries, the only reasonable deduction is that the great majority of these shootings are engineered by those who seek to irreparably tear the fabric of American society.  And so they have.

Headlines from the Drudge Report

Nikolas Cruz: MKUltra Mind Control Victim?

While it’s impossible to state with certainty, there’s a great likelihood that Nikolas Cruz was the product of the CIA’s MKUltra mind control program.  Everything about his life and behavior smacks of the perfect candidate to be first victimized and then used by the  shrinks who are routinely contracted by the C.I.A. to implement their infamous mind-altering program.
MKUltra & the Florida School Shooting, Cell Phone Tech and Psychotropic Drugs (Video)
While most of the evidence is circumstantial, it’s quite compelling.  #1: Victims are frequently selected because they come from broken families.  Not only was he an adopted child, Cruz’s mother and father had both passed away.  He took the loss of his mother particularly hard, as adopted children often do because of abandonment issues. Lynda Cruz died of pneumonia on November 1, 2017 and Nikolas was depressed according to those who knew him.  Therefore, it’s very significant that this crime was committed not long after her death.  What really happened to Nikolas between November 1 and February 14?
“Mr. Cruz and his brother, Zachary, had been adopted, and were raised largely by their mother, Lynda Cruz, especially after their father, Roger P. Cruz, died suddenly in 2004 at the age of 67. Ms. Cruz died in November, and people who knew Nikolas said he had taken the loss hard.”[1]
#2: According to press reports, Cruz’s had been diagnosed with ADHD and Autism, and had been on medication.  The pharmaceutical drugs that are usually prescribed are powerful psychotropic medications which can have dangerously adverse side effects.  Such drug regimens can also be used as a part of a concealed mind-control program administered by his mental health professional handler.
#3: Cruz was expelled from his high school and was told not to bring his backpack on the premises.  As a “troubled student” and despondent teenager, it truly appears that he was deliberately broken by the “System” in order to make him vulnerable to an MKUltra mind-control program.  Everything was being stacked against him so that he would snap exactly when his handlers wanted him to, which he apparently did.  It appears that Cruz’s younger brother has also snapped…right on time: BAKER ACT: What better way to invalidate Nikolas Cruz’s younger brother’s testimony than have him committed to a mental hospital
#4: Perhaps the real clincher in this case is the lack of response on the part of the FBI after receiving credible threats about Cruz’s highly suspicious behavior.  Locally, there was also an extremely negligent response by various school and local law enforcement authorities to Cruz’s behavior.  It’s as though he was being systematically set up to participate [UNWITTINGLY] in a massacre.  In other words, if he really was one of the shooters, Nikolas Cruz may not even know what he did because of the psychoactive drugs and mind manipulation techniques used on him (that’s even if he fired a single shot).
#5: It’s always suspect whenever fellow students and other acquaintances are trotted onto MSM evening news platforms who provide testimony that fits the preconceived narrative too perfectly.  The immediate and full-throated news reports painted a picture so fast about the suspect that much of the information must have already been in their possession.  How did that happen?  It’s kind of like another Operation Gladio C terror event known as 9/11, when the free-fall collapse of Building #7 transpired after the BBC newscast that reported it!
                                                                    
#6: Then there is Cruz’s expressed interest in guns and killing animals which is not uncommon among boys his age.  It’s very much a teenage thing (especially in such a violent American society) that has been conveniently magnified by the MSM to make him out to be a crazed killer, which he may or may not be.  However, his most recent caretakers were quite clear that he never demonstrated such an incriminating tendency.
“They also saw no signs of animal cruelty. They are animal lovers, with two dogs and six cats. He’d have been kicked out if he was mean to their animals. Cruz seemed to love their pets.”[2]
#7: There have been way too many accounts given by other students who witnessed the event from inside the school who spoke of multiple shooters.  This fact alone ought to stop everybody dead in their tracks.  This often happens with black operations.  The initial news reports capture much truth but are then completely disregarded during the investigation. Why have the investigators already ignored these multiple shooter testimonies, as the MSM news updates fully indicate?  This right here is a hallmark of these blackops as well as HUGE red flag waving: Operation Gladio C.

Students At Florida School Shooting Report Crisis Drills and Multiple Shooters (Video)


#8: That there were “Code Red active shooter drills” (See the orange highlight in the screenshot below) conveniently conducted on site at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida only adds to the likelihood of this mass shooting being a carefully scripted MCE.  Why are nearly all of these false flag shootings preceded by drills?  This coincidence is simply far too frequent not to be an integral part of these pre-planned psyops. CODE RED ACTIVE SHOOTER DRILL: Who really spread the rumor before the mass shooting so that the students would think it was all a drill?


KEY POINT: The best way to solve this crime mystery is to interview those who had the most interaction and meaningful contact with the suspect.  That would be, first and foremost, his attending psychiatrist and/or clinical psychologist.  Next would be the couple who took him into their home—James and Kimberly Snead.  This is where the investigative trail begins, which will ultimately lead to the top Operation Gladio C decision-makers. Nikolas Cruz’s Last Caretaker: James Snead was a RETIRED MILITARY INTELLIGENCE ANALYST

Immediate and overwhelming reaction by the Democrats

The reaction by Democratic politicos at every level, liberal MSM talking heads, progressive ringleaders throughout urban America, as well as left-wing hate groups and other Soros-funded NGOs to this particular MCE is like no other.  It’s as though a chorus of protest demanding new gun control laws was orchestrated for months in advance to be sung in unison across the land.
This unusually coordinated reaction alone is enough to arouse deep suspicions that these collaborators were all put on notice about this MCE.  Given that their stated goal is to remove the 2nd Amendment, they are actually co-conspirators guilty of the highest form of treason.  After all, the NWO globalist cabal would have a field day once gun rights were abolished.  The American Republic would be transformed into a tyranny overnight.
Let’s be clear: the rampage across America by gun-hating liberals has been so fierce and so unrelenting since the Florida shooting that their reaction alone ought to be a dead giveaway.  This tragic massacre was engineered so that they could hijack the mass shooting and use it to, at the very least, take the assault weapons off the streets.  The odds are quite astronomical that almost every one of these mass shootings was committed by an AR-15 (not by the shooter).  In the present case, it was an “AR-15-style semiautomatic rifle” that Cruz allegedly used.
And the Mockingbird Media’s premier organ of propaganda — The New York Times — is always here to remind us of this “AR-15” common denominator among so many mass shootings over the years (see the following excerpt).  As if on cue, the NYT editorial page writers will then follow up with so many screeds against assault weapons even though it was the FEDs who planted the AR-15 at the crime scene in the first place.
“Newtown. San Bernardino. Las Vegas. Sutherland Springs. And now, Parkland. Five of the six deadliest mass shootings of the past six years in the United States. In each of them, the gunman had an AR-15-style semiautomatic rifle.”
(Source: The New York Times article In Florida, an AR-15 Is Easier to Buy Than a Handgun)
The best rebuttal thus far to the NYT’s familiar gun-grabbing fanaticism is Trey Gowdy’s recent admonition: Trey Gowdy: “Show Me a Law That Will Prevent the Next Mass Killing (Video)

Special Note:
It’s no quirk of fate that the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is where this brazen psyop and black operation was carried out by the Operation Gladio C perps.  For the non-Floridian, Marjory Stoneman Douglas was the state’s first “declared” feminist, fiercest environmentalist and one of the original “social justice warriors” when they really did good work.  Most significantly, Stoneman Douglas was known as the advocate who saved Everglades National Park, sometimes known as The Swamp.  She protected the massive swamp from being drained by the developers who were determined to build there.  Are we to believe that this particular high school’s namesake was not quite intentionally chosen for political purposes?!  Parkland, Florida is also located in ultra-liberal Broward County, where the blue runs as deep as anywhere in the Deep South.  The critical point here is that the agents of the Very Deep State execute these black ops with explicit purpose and multiple goals.  Every detail is nailed down for maximum effect (See how this massacre was purposefully carried out in Trump’s back yard of his Mar-a-Lago resort and retreat).  The occult symbolism is especially chosen to send a message to all who are aware.  (Read more at: Florida’s Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre: Ritual Sacrifice and Occult Symbolism)  Often times these are subliminal messages which will reach a much greater [SOCIALLY ENGINEERED] audience , that can then be deliberately triggered at the appointed time.  Do you now see how the Florida psyop was a fastidiously designed scheme by those who run Operation Gladio C?

Conclusion

The American Republic is under dire threat.  The US citizenry is facing challenges that are so daunting and formidable they must be confronted sooner than later.  The POTUS himself now finds himself between a rock and hard place with no wiggle room.  In fact…
Trump has only ONE response to the ongoing soft coup being run by rogue elements within the U.S. Intelligence Community—A Military Response!
The barrage of assaults by the Very Deep State via Operation Gladio C are now occurring so fast and furiously, they must be addressed in a decisive manner.  Not to do so will seal the fate of this constitutional republic.  Is their any patriot who does not yet agree that Deep State’s Seditious Lawlessness Demands Immediate and Vigorous Prosecution?
Therefore, the time has come for the DOJ to step up to the plate.  President Trump must “drain the swamp” as he committed to do.  He can start with shutting down the FBI.  Because Operation Gladio C is fundamentally a covert military operation, the U.S. Armed Forces will be compelled to form the military tribunals necessary to administer the Uniform Code of Military Justice.  Then, as Commander-in-Chief, the prez can lock up the perps at Guantanamo Bay detention camp.

The Bottom Line:

Operation Gladio C
must be terminated,
before it terminates US!

State of the Nation
February 17, 2018
Author’s Note
Since the very day that this Florida MCE was staged, the Left has taken advantage of it to reignite their long-running gun grab.  The nation is now experiencing an unparalleled groundswell of anti-firearm fervor.  The hardcore Bolsheviks behind this highly organized protest movement know they must seize the day.  The only way they can hope to launch their Purple Revolution is to sufficiently disarm the Right.[3]  Hence, they are rapidly inciting their revolutionistas to get ready for insurrection.  Momentum is quickly building against assault weapons which is creating an explosive situation nationwide.  Unless something much bigger changes the public discourse fast, the purple revolutionaries will capitalize majorly on this engineered psyop.  The sanctuary cities and states are especially vulnerable to being subjected to new unconstitutional gun laws in one scenario.
How did this high school student give a perfectly prepared speech to the media on gun control right after Florida shooting? (Video)
Editor’s Note
Every American patriot only needs to consider the highly restrictive gun control laws that were enacted in Scotland after the Dunblane school shooting and in Australia immediately following the Port Arthur Massacre.  The Dunblane mass shooting took place on 13 March 1996; the Port Arthur massacre occurred from 28–29 April 1996.  It quickly became obvious to gun owners worldwide that these two efficacious psyops were staged within two months of each other with purposeful political design (à la Operation Gladio C).
