On The Brink Of An Apocalyptic War With Iran... https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-0...-seem-care

Trump administration just canceled the waivers that were allowing other nations to continue purchasing Iranian oil, and the goal of that move is to reduce Iranian exports to zero.  But oil exports are 40 percent of the Iranian economy, and the Iranians understand that this move could absolutely cripple their economy.  The Iranians have threatened to close the straight of Hormuz in retaliation...

Four B-52 Stratofortress bombers are being sent to the Mideast to support the aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln in moves aimed at countering threats from Iran, U.S. Central Command said Tuesday. The B-52s, from Barksdale Air Force Base, Louisiana, are deploying to Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar, a hub for U.S. air operations in the region,

I wonder if a B-52 could survive Iranian anti-air defenses. Perhaps the deployment is more symbolic than practical.

"Sabotage attacks" on Saudi oil tankers stoke fears of "conflict happening by accident"... https://www.cbsnews.com/news/iran-news-s...019-05-13/

CBS News has learned U.S. investigators have determined Iran or groups backed by Iran were behind attacks on four tankers owned by U.S. allies off the coast of the United Arab Emirates; one was seen with large dent in its stern. https://twitter.com/CBSEveningNews/statu...89/video/1

Sure they could...after what we would do to their air defenses beforehand.

And, why are we fighting with Iran? And now Trump has a plan to send 120,000 troops to the middle east? Are all of you on board with that?

Because they're a threat to the US... well not really.   Because the US is debt free and we have all the money in the world to spend on another "war"?  No.  

Because we think we're the world's police?  Probably.

Consider sending troops to the ME? Trump can consider anything but... no, not on board with sending troops to the ME.

Maybe because we want them to stop sponsoring terrorist attacks all over the world?  Maybe because we don't want them supplying a suitcase nuke to be delivered to NY City?  Maybe because they are threatening to close down the sea lanes and disrupt the world's energy supply?

And which person are we going to kill, as part of this campaign, that is going to prevent terror attacks? Who specifically are we targeting?

Do you support Iran's efforts to build a nuclear weapons program?

It's all according to plan. I've been posting this since NH 1.0. April 1990 the plan was put in place - Wolfowitz Doctrine.

After the fall of the Soviet Union the attention was turned to the ME. Several reasons. Oil, Use our new technologies and military equipment, and regime change. Countries on the list?

Iraq - Saddam Hussein was a friend until he wasn't needed. Taken out.
Egypt - Hosni Mubarak removed to put Muslim Brotherhood in but the Egyptian military put the kibosh on that.
Libya - Muammar Gaddafi set to open up Libya to other North African nations, school from k-college to all, clean water, and no nukes. Taken out.
Yemen - Natural enemy of Suadi Arabia. Needed to be destroyed. Saudi Arabia helped by US technology.
Syria - Warm seaport for Russia. Ozero miscalculated Putin's resolve to keep Syria's ports available.
Iran - Natural enemy of Saudi Arabia and world sponsor of terror. US end goal is regime change. Ozero let this possibility lapse.
