Prepare for the True Face of Iran

 

Iran, or should we call them the English translation for the Ancient Farsi word we represent by Iran we discussed yesterday, Aryan, will soon be ready to flex their muscles and do so to great surprise of the Western World who have misjudged Iran every step of their development since President Jimmy Carter personally made sure the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini attained the leadership and turned Iran, Aryan, into an Islamic Theocratic dictatorship where a select group of sagely appearing Imams appeared to guide an elected Parliament and the elected President all chosen from a select group of candidates who had been vetted by the Imams who make up the Guardian Council who also are to advise the Grand Ayatollah who holds ultimate power. Other than the Guardian Council to a lesser extent and the Grand Ayatollah to a much greater extent, the remainders of the governance, the President, the Parliament are all simply trappings to give a semblance of allowing the people any degree of power with their mostly meaningless votes. In all honesty we can probably safely state that the results of the elections could likely be published by the government media three weeks before they will presumably be cast. Iran has been patiently biding their time and their awakening is close at hand and the world will never be the same.

 

The Iranians worked quietly, clandestinely, and with great care on developing nuclear warheads for their missiles working for that day when they become and announce their entry as a nuclear power. They know that with a fair number of nuclear weapons they can do far more and make demands upon the world. Nuclear weapons make one a superpower and with the right delivery weapons they make a nation far more effective and respected. The Soviet Union was considered the equal of the United States even though they were in economic ruination which eventually caused their inevitable collapse. Still, despite that collapse Russia is respected if for no other reason for their nuclear weapons and their ability to virtually destroy human civilizations. China became a nation to reckon with when they proved to have developed thermonuclear weapons and the ICBMs with which to deliver them to any point on the globe. Iran knows that Israel was considered the strongest nation in the Middle East due to their victories in their wars in 1967 and 1973 defeating Egypt and Syria in both conflicts and also Jordan in 1967. Their survival in 1948-9 was considered a miracle in the West and a calamity in the Arab World. Even with India and Pakistan their conflict over who owns what of the corpse of Kashmir changed and became more of a low level simmering conflict with occasional outbursts but any opening of the conflict seemed far more likely to immediately turn to mediations than escalation and thus there, at least, nuclear weapons had a calming effect as the alternative was unthinkable.

 

What about Iran? Will it have a calming influence and also cause their sponsoring of terrorism to also decline? These are very serious questions which should have been included in the nuclear deal and were not even an afterthought. Iranian influence through Hezballah by which the governance of the nation was changed and even the demographics took a drastic turn caused the Christians to flee from the terror tyranny. Hezballah was another instance where a nation, upon reaching a critical percentage of its population made up of Muslims, turned violent with outside arming and instigation. This resulted in the non-Muslim population who could leave and restart their life in Europe, Australia, Israel, New Zealand or the United States emigrating with no intention of ever returning. They went giving up their ancestral home in many instances and choosing to turn their backs on that history and with heavy hearts setting their sights to take root elsewhere away from the growing violence. Such decisions are rarely reached easily and require dire situations which tear at the heart and require a mindset which once the situation reaches that point you make the decision and, like a steel trap, close the past and step into a new future hoping that you might find some others who made a similar decision before you. Maybe you have relatives or were able to locate and land employment, something which always sets a mind into a better state when making such a traumatic decision. Still, the children, they seldom understand the reasons and have the hardest time at first but fortunately children are resilient; sometimes they have no other choice. This was the effect in one small nation due to Iran and their terror proxy Hezballah but Iran needed a base from which to operate and Syria was always known to be a pyramid turned on its tip and always threatening to topple in the slightest of political winds. After the mantle passed to Bashir al-Assad it became obvious early on he was not his father, not by a longshot which made Lebanon all the more essential for Iran. But soon all that will be different, won’t it.

 

Iran is heavily involved in Lebanon through Hezballah who they have armed with hundreds of thousands of rockets of various sizes, warheads, ranges and multiple usage types from ground to ground, MLRV*, anti-ship, anti-tank, anti-aircraft, multiple warhead and rumored to also have cluster munitions which are illegal under the international rules of war, something which seems not to apply to Iran, Hezballah and others when used against Israel. Hezballah is only a single front which Iran has been building to destroy Israel or to use against Israel as a distraction from other actions they may be preparing for elsewhere. They are also arming Hamas and Islamic Jihad as best they can with Israel doing what they are able to prevent such shipments. Israel had captured a few of the ships carrying arms to unload into the Sinai Peninsula for smuggling through the tunnels from the Sinai Peninsula into Gaza for Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Israel is rumored to have also bombed trucks in the Sudan which were taking arms shipments from Iran to smuggle into the Sinai Peninsula by ferrying them across the Red Sea presumably under cover of night. Iran has also been rumored to have contacted Mahmoud Abbas in an attempt to also give him arms if he would be willing to take directives as to when and how to attack Israel from Tehran. Abbas has made a number of trips to Iran as have other Palestinian authority (PA) officials. Read what one may but they have also made trips to Saudi Arabia and Egypt when Morsi was President. The trips were rumored to have been about collecting on promises for funding though such is only rumor and unconfirmed.

 

Other than Israel, Lebanon and the entire imbroglio which is Syria, the Iranians are also involved in a proxy-war with Saudi Arabia in Yemen where recriminations of improper tactics and the illegal targeting of civilians and using the same civilians as human shields. The civil war in Yemen would have faltered and petered out except for the addition of Iranian heavy weapons and other supplies as well as IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corp) trainers and special operations specialists to aid the Houthis in their efforts to take control of the whole of Yemen. The Saudi Arabian efforts have largely been providing artillery and air support to the remaining government forces which have fled the capital city and are fighting to retain the southern port city of Aden. Additionally, for all intents and purposes the Iranians are the Iraqi government and control the entirety of the Shiite areas under government control. The Iranians by being the military command in Iraq they also are the ones placing requests for and more often than not receiving air support from the United States which had all but placed the United States Air Force planes and pilots under Iranian directives. This would not be so bad if the other sorties the United States had run against the Islamic State have largely returned with armaments still locked to their hard-points with none having been deployed as targets reported by Intelligence either were moved before the aircraft arrived as the intelligence was already dated. The Islamic State had figured the delay from satellite passing to any United States attack plan to reach the actual units which scramble their aircraft and they have the satellites timed so they move their resources as soon as the satellites have passed and before the orders reach the attack units. Thus far the United States is losing the cat and mouse game with the Islamic State and there are two main reasons. First the orders have to travel from the satellite intelligence reaching the surface in Iraq which is then forwarded to Washington for interpretation and orders to be cut after receiving White House approval. Then the orders are relayed back to Iraq where they are then passed through command and assigned to an actual Air Force unit which scrambles the pilots after the approved and required armaments are placed on the aircraft. All said and done, from satellite to aircraft is an hour or over leaving the Islamic State all the time it needs to almost casually move their assets to new locations and even return them to the originally determined location for the next satellite.

 

These efforts are restricted to the Arabian Peninsula and around the Middle East. If only these were the limit of the Iranian efforts it would be troubling enough, but alas there is so much more. Hezballah has been training terrorists in a complex along with IRGC units both providing specialist training to the terror units which rotate through the training area. The area has two separate airports, barracks and plenty of Jungle in which to train as well as a mock urban setting. The area is known as the Tri-Border Area which sits on the border area of Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina. The terrorist training area is also used by the drug cartels to further train their guard units, personal protection guards and any other people who need specialized training which the IRGC or Hezballah trainers are capable of providing. The advent of this training became evident very quickly as the Drug Cartels sent their most trusted personnel for training as soon after their return to Mexico there was a number of beheadings occurring with some performed and the heads later rolled into locations for the most impact to further enforce the threat the Cartels were to the public in Mexico as well as government law enforcement, courts and elected officials. Most of these beheadings took place largely within a hundred or so miles from the border with the United States as the American illicit drug markets are the main consumers of their wares. The training provided along with armaments including mines and anti-personnel devices could be used to make the main house safer from any encroachment by other cartels or law enforcement personnel. In exchange it is thought that Hezballah has gained free use and assistance by human smugglers to gain entrance into the United States and potentially even housing purchased and readied to provide the cover home for a terror group of individuals who may have an immediate assignment or they may be a sleeper cell of a mother, father and teen aged appearing sons who are likely bored in their high school classes which they must attend to retain the appearance of being a family with teenage sons. The Tri-Border Area has been used for decades by now and is a perfect location as it is very remote and each of the government’s claims that it is the other two countries that are responsible for security and law enforcement. With each government pointing their fingers at the other two’s responsibility to enforce the law, it is needless to point out that while each is pointing at the other two they are not bothering to provide much of any in the way of law enforcement over these areas thus leaving well enough alone as all three nations have no appetite for incurring the wrath of Iran and Hezballah. Make no mistake, should any of these nations take any steps to enforce the law against the terrorist and IRGC or any other Iranian forces training or waiting for orders to infiltrate the United States to carry out an immediate attack or join others who are simply lying in wait for orders some time in the future, the officials and military commanders had best watch their front, back, right, left, up and down as they will have painted a target on themselves.

 

The simple thing is that Iran with their world-wide reach through Hezballah and Hamas operatives as well as their own IRGC which was formed to provide a dedicated unit with the same size, financing and equipment as the regular Iranian Army to extend their reach beyond their borders would become a primary resource in such instances. The proof that Iran’s arm can reach around the world was where Hezballah, with IRGC assistance and possibly participation, accomplished the assaults on the AMIA bombing, an attack on the Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (Argentine Israelite Mutual Association) on July 18, 1994, killing 85 people and injuring hundreds as well as the March 17, 1992, attack on the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires as a pickup truck driven by a suicide bomber and loaded with explosives smashed into the front of the Israeli Embassy where the blast killed 29 and wounded 242 others. The AIMA attack was being investigated by Alberto Nisman who left the investigation unfinished upon his suspicious death.

The day after Prosecutor Nisman was found dead in his apartment the morning he was scheduled to report to the Argentine legislature from what was initially reported to have been a suicide, we here at BTC reported our suspicions with our January 21, 2015, article titled Prosecutor’s Fate Mirrors Western Culture. The previous day, we regret to say, we missed the mark when we claimed that his death would be classified as a suicide and never investigated in our January 20, 2015, article The Death of Alberto Nisman. Though a prosecutorial team was assigned to investigate his untimely death and the circumstances surrounding this horrid murder, there was never anyone prosecuted and the paths investigated led either beyond the borders which was simply stated as beyond their prosecutorial privileges, something which would only have piqued Alberto Nisman further and his indomitable will to find the real truth no matter the obstacles or inconvenience to powerful people. It is really pathetic that a man who gave his all because of his zeal to follow the path of truth no matter where it led would have his murder swept under the carpet to satisfy crooked politicians, a terrorist group operating partially in Argentina in the tri-border region to be given a pass and to allow Iran’s implicated hand also to go unslapped. That is the saddest tribute a man can receive as to have his death be left unresolved as the result of an abortive investigation which was never given the honesty which he had dedicated and given his life. An upstanding and outstanding man deserved more.

Thanks to the economic and other sanctions which have hobbled the Iranian economy to the point, about eighteen months ago, it resembled a dying man crawling on his belly in tattered pants and the shreds of his shirt, shoes scuffed to the point that their original color was indistinguishable and two vultures already discussing which would get which of the choicest remains, had Iran at the brink of civil revolt. That was when President Obama held back door negotiations where he released some of the most effective of the sanctions which brought the distant oasis to the parched lips of the Iranian economy saving them to make the better deal. It is that deal President Obama, the hero of the Iranians government, is claiming is the best deal and the only option outside of war. But is this claim of peace in our time really just peace for a while in our time? The comparisons between the Munich Accords of 1938 and now President Obama is desperately seeking the same adulation for this close relative to another situation of a nation spreading its tentacles and preparing for war and barely even concealing their arming and their aspirations which have been laid out in writing. The desires for world conquest and the elimination of the Jewish People was laid out step for step by Adolph Hitler in Mein Kampf and the Iranian Shiites (and also the Sunnis just to be fair and even; after all we would not want to take sides now, would we?) in the Quran and the Hadiths where the world is divided between ‘Dar al-Islam’ (Arabic: دار الإسلام‎) which translates to House of Islam and ‘Dar al-Harb’ (Arabic: دار الحرب) which translates to House of War. The followers of Islam are instructed to continue their struggle to spread their religion until it becomes the only religion practiced anywhere in the world. There are many Muslims residing in Western nations who refute any charges that Islam is to be spread ‘by the sword’ should more passive means prove unproductive and there remain some who adamantly refuse to accept Islam which is simply intolerable.

 

Then there is the Islamic State which has denuded entire cities and swaths of lands in which they have taken control of those who practiced any religion other than not only Islam but their very narrowly defined version of Sunni Islam. The marauders of the Islamic State may have been the Junior Varsity in the eyes of United States President Obama but are anything but the Junior Varsity when it comes to torture and coming up with ever more imaginative ways to ever more slowly murder their victims making sure that they suffered the most mental anguish, even if not the maximum pain, as they progressed from beheadings to burning alive to slowly being lowered in a steel cage into water to drown victims and other horrors and then posted their murderous ways using them as some form of sick recruiting tool. What is even more disturbing are the numbers of those who have rushed from across Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and the rest of the Western World to join the Islamic State. The only productive news concerning Iran is they oppose the Islamic State and desire to eliminate this horror from the world. But then one must ask themselves, is replacing the Islamic State horrors with Iranian, Syrian and Hezballah horrors really a step in the right direction or simply replacing one murderous and fearsome army turned government with another murderous government using its army.

 

These are the leaders of a nation of approximately seventy-eight-million-five-hundred-thousand largely Shia Muslims of which the vast majority are what are referred to as “Twelvers” with the remainder of the population being also largely Muslims following Sunni Islam. The remaining under one-percent of Iranians follows the following religions in order from largest to least; Bahá’í, Gnostic, Christian, Yarsanism, Zoroastrianism, Hinduism, and least but with a very nice Synagogue, the Yusef Abad synagogue in Tehran pictured below, Judaism. Interestingly, there are more Jews of Iranian heritage residing in the United States than remain in Iran which according to the 2011 Iranian census stated this threatened populations of Jews at eight-thousand-seven-hundred-fifty-six souls the majority spread between merely ten families, six of them related by marriage. There are those who inflate the numbers of Jews remaining in Iran to over one-hundred-thousand largely in an attempt to portray Iran as an accepting nation granting equal rights to non-Muslims despite the fact that the minorities walk quietly and taking care to be aware of their surroundings at all times and making sure to keep their heads bowed and their gaze fixates on the ground before them and to never under any circumstance stare any Shiite Muslim in the eyes and to always speak in hushed tones speaking in slow and respectful manners and subservient language never to sound challenging or to ever, ever appear as an equal lest one be reported to the police for such an affront and pay the price for challenging their superiors. There is a very good and solid description of life in Iran since the 1979 Islamic Revolution for Jews and other minorities given by Karmel Melamed, an award-winning, internationally published journalist and attorney based in Southern California who writes the Iranian American Jews blog. This article titled ”The Iranian-Jewish Tragedy in Iran” which gives the chilling view which the Western World needs to understand before they permit the fascist, supremacist dictatorial leadership to once again, in the brief history from 1900 to the present, to allow a cancer which believes they have a right to destroy the world in order to save the world. The history of Iran in that same time period just might give people some pause to realize the direction Iran has taken since 1900 and the path is chilling.

Iran did not exist in the year 1900 as all the way back then it had a name that most will recognize and for the Jews had a varied history where it went from savior to creeping to the edge of committing genocide against the Jewish People except for the bravery of one Jewess, Queen Esther. All the way back as recently as March 20, 1935 the nation was known as Persia. This name of Persia could be traced back to Cyrus the Great, the leader of Persia who conquered Babylonia and granted the Jews the right to return to their homelands and rebuild their holy Temple which many Jews chose to do while some of their brethren remained in Persia. Years later when Persia was ruled by King Ahasuerus (Xerxes I) the Grand Vizier, Haman the Agagite persuaded King Ahasuerus that the Jews were plotting against his rule and needed to be dealt with. This seems to be a repeating theme and almost always leads to someone coming up with the idea that murdering the Jews will make their nation greater, and the order was issued. The problem was that after the King created a vacancy after executing his wife for refusing his orders and generally insulting his authority for which he held a beauty contest, hopefully a contest which took into consideration more than beauty as that had worked so well with Vashti. Well, he chose Esther who the night before the order was to be carried out bravely entered the King’s court without having been invited, punishable by death, begged the King’s attention and broke the news that if his Grand Vizier Haman’s order was to be carried out they could start with her as she was also a Jew. Haman and his sons were executed on the very gallows they would have murdered the Jews of Persia. Haman, Hamas, I wonder, could there be a connection?

 

On March 21, 1935 Reza Shah Pahlavi officially renamed Persia changing the name to Iran. There are two very different theories for the change. One refers to numerous ancient references varying from the Sassanid, the Zoroastrianism, the Romans and other historical references mostly to deal with language. A more modern take takes the date and the rise of the Nazis to power in Germany and the theory of a master race, the Aryans, or the Persian word for the racial designation, Iran. The actual reason is likely was only honestly known to Reza Shah Pahlavi and he will not be giving us any hints. Another item while we are comparing modern day Iran and the Aryans from World War II as a potential enemy; the only war which Iran had fought directly was, to their credit, something which will seldom be found in these editorials in any source, was as a result of Iraqi initiated assaults as Saddam Hussein attempted to grab the Iranian oil fields. That war lasted near to a decade where some of the most horrific and destructive tactics were utilized by both sides. Despite the Iraqi military’s reputation as one of the largest and best trained and equipped in the Middle East outside Israel, Iran held them at bay and often made gains but eventually the war resembled a World War I trench warfare than world war highly mobile and technical war. The most remarked attack in this horrific war came when the Iranians needed to clear minefields and needed to do so with some degree of speed so a fairly brutish and head-on system was necessitated. The Iranians initially attempted to stampede mules and donkeys across the minefields but once the first animal struck a mine the others would scatter and run back the direction they had come from. This led to one of the most disturbing tactics where children were volunteered and upon their death their parents were financially compensated for their patriotic donation to the war efforts. The children were given plastic keys which they were told would unlock the door to heaven for them. In response to the condition of the returned remains led to the wrapping of the children in wet blankets so as to retain their parts when they hit a mine. Such fanaticism and willingness to sacrifice for the religious leadership was horrific and also showed a commitment almost beyond rational belief and which shows the length the Iranians might resort to against an enemy.

 

The question remains as to whether President Obama is saving the world from a war with Iran with his deal or allowing Iran to build up their military and potentially arm themselves with an arsenal of nuclear weapons, potentially thermonuclear warheads and the ICBMs with which to deliver them anywhere on the globe. They may even develop ICBM missiles capable of irregular flight characteristics making anti-missile systems near useless in preventing their striking their targets. Additionally, the Iranians could readily develop cruise missiles and master the ability to launch them from freighter container ships as they have done with some of their fifteen-hundred to two-thousand mile largely unguided rockets, or possibly a poorly guided missile. Of course, if the rocket has a nuclear warhead, exactly how accurate does one need to be? I mean, as long as you strike within a few miles from the intended region and, just as with hand grenades and horseshoes, close counts. What is most worrying is how the situation came to this juncture with the sanctions being weakened by President Obama allowing Iran to continue to limp along while the President and the State Department Team, which included a number of the same people who were responsible for the agreement with North Korea which led directly to their becoming nuclear armed nation, and Secretary of State Kerry appeared to trip over each other seeing who could surrender point after point and succumb to Iranian demands the fastest. The sign that Iran is about to use a fair amount of funds which will represent but a drop in the bucket of the one-hundred-fifty-billion-dollars being unfrozen and gifted to the Mullahs and the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei as they have already made arrangement to purchase Russian S-300 anti-aircraft-and-missile systems, one-hundred-fifty Chinese Chengdu J-10 sophisticated jet fighters with Israeli avionics and finally, two-hundred-fifty highly-advanced Russian Sukhoi-Su-30MK1 heavy-fighter-bombers as well as one-hundred IL78 MKI tanker aircraft; or simply put, Iran is purchasing an entire air force and air defense systems taking them from almost no air power worth mentioning to air superiority by comparison and potentially air superiority over the Kurds, Islamic State, and almost every nation in Northern Africa and many European nations as well. As the nations which Iran is most likely to face if they decide to expand their borders and acquire the airfields and staging areas of southern Iraq, as it appears that President Obama is fully supporting the IRGC forces and eventually other Iranian military forces to operate from within Iraq and Syria against the Islamic State with the United States providing air strikes and air support operations one has to wonder how President Obama might react should Iran decide to turn their forces southward and strike across the Kuwaiti and Saudi Arabian oil fields in response to what they could claim was mistreatment of Shiite Muslims by the two nations after incidents were instigated.

 

The other front we can expect to come from Iran is for their expanding the influence of Shia Islam across formerly Sunni strongholds spreading their control over Madrassas potentially replacing Wahhabi Madrassas after they have swarmed across the oil fields, complete their control through the Houthis of Yemen and then using a pincher attack from the north and the south in order to capture Mecca and Medina and thus controlling the heart of Islam. This would also complete Iranian control of the Red Sea and the Bab El-Mandab Strait. From that jumping off point it would not be difficult for Iran to then establish a beachhead from which to operate starting in Somalia and spreading from there through Eretria and Djibouti in order to spread through the Sudan and from Iraq and Saudi Arabia into the Sinai thus being on Egypt’s southern and eastern borders. Should Iran also desire to place a substantial force injected into Syria to assist Bashir al-Assad retaking the lands he has lost and using Hezballah to cement their control over Lebanon then Iran could have a northern and southern fronts on Israel and even more troubling should they also gain access to Gaza supplanting Hamas and Islamic Jihad in controlling the area. We can also expect that Iran will fortify their ground forces with purchases of armor most likely light armor to facilitate fast swarm style attacks overwhelming any defense an opponent would be likely to have at any front relying on lighter resistance and by overwhelming the initial positions and driving deeper into any nation they intended to strike thus appearing unstoppable and gaining a perceived position of strength which would also give the Islamic State considerable challenge especially when one considers that Iran will have a very well-armed air force, something completely missing in the Islamic State’s arsenal of abilities. The likelihood that President Obama would take any position opposing any Iranian moves in the entirety of the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) as such would be viewed as Iran simply doing exactly what President Obama desired, Iran stabilizing the entirety of the Islamic world, and what better way of being the hegemonic power than to also control all of the valuable lands and suppressing every potential adversary.

 

It would not be a complete surprise if should Iran manage to take control in Egypt that the Muslim Brotherhood might ‘see the writing on the wall,’ so to speak, and decide they had been in error about the lineage and correct successors of Muhammad and turn to back a Shia Islam. The truth is that there will either be a war with Iran or Iran will bring the war to each and every corner of the world one site at a time. The only question is at what point will their expansions be one bite too many and at what disadvantage will the world be in when facing the Iranian threat. History will point to the past decade and a half as the period when Iran could have been collared with minor losses and as being an opportunity squandered placing the world at risk. Once again, it appears the greatest threat building in the world is being left to Israel to stop. Let’s hope that Israel gets the necessary support of those others facing the same dangers or be willing to take on the task themselves. This is one time we can know that the United States has nobody’s back or if they do, then it is the worst of all possible scenarios placing Washington solidly behind Iran as President Obama had tilted his entire time in office, even with his efforts to place the Muslim Brotherhood ruling Egypt or turning a blind eye to Erdogan suppressing Turkey turning it into a Sharia state and potentially joining with Iran. At the very least, a combining of the regions and its people into an alliance of Israel, the Kurds, the Druze and the various Christian strongholds be brought together and aided to eliminate the Islamic State, thus putting Iran on notice that they should carefully consider their next moves as they will make all the difference in the world. As a result of removing the Islamic State, regions of Syria and northern Iraq will now be known as a state for the Kurds in the area originally promised the Kurds for Kurdistan at the end of World War I but not fulfilled due to the Mosul oil fields and politics as usual. The Druze will likely be granted some degree of autonomy within those areas in Syria where they reside and the refugees should attempt to put their lives and country back together and learn to live with a multi-ethnic nation. Further, as Hezballah has shown so much concern for Syria perhaps they can live there and maybe the Bekaa Valley but the rest of Lebanon is to be a Christian refuge free and resolute to act with favor on the Christians of the entire area and make a nation from the ruins left by Hezballah. Such a solution would be so nice and clean which is why it is unlikely to come into fruition. As Winston Churchill told the British Parliament “You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor, and you will have war.” and additionally from his writings from “The Gathering Storm,” “If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds are against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves.” May some heed the warnings that many in the leadership positions in Israel be joined by those in Europe, in France, in Germany, in Great Britain, the Czech Republic, Poland, Romania and even Greece raise their voices and call for those who cherish the G0d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob not succumb to the forces of those of Abraham, Ishmael and Mohammad, Amen.

Saudi Arabia is used to facing problems for where the determining factor is oil or money. The current crisis is not one of that ilk. It is not one that can be done completely just by controlling the price of oil as doing that might upset Russia, the Saudi’s recent new best friend after the United States proved unreliable and apparently had joined the Iranians whose immediate plan is to take the Saudi oil fields thus neutering the Saudi influence and taking away their only real weapon. But the apparent newest friend of the United States has far more than taking merely oil, they want it all and the Saudis had best know about the other half of the Iranian plans, the half where they take the most valuable of the Saudi influences. The oil is only money and that can be taken back with force even if doing so heavily damages the fields as that too can be easily repaired and the Iranians do not wish to become merely the all but sole power over OPEC and thus be able to push the price of oil up or down according to their whims. But the oil fields, as such, are not even the primary goal because the Iranians have as their primary appetite which is to control Islam, something they find to be the more appealing and possessing a far more important goal requiring their attentions and that is to have the holy cities starting with Mecca and Medina. Some here believe that their backing of the Houthis to take control of Yemen is less about controlling the Bab el Mandeb Straights and more about providing them with a more direct route in reaching Mecca and Medina coming from the south which is often the least guarded area of Saudi Arabia and once the Iranians get past those tasked with guarding the southern borders it would become a three party race to control the holy cities, two being the Iranians closing from Yemen in the south and from Iraq in the north while the Saudi forces would need to be called from their concentration on the oil fields and transported the width of the country to join the fight. This lends to my answering those who have asked about what made me believe that World War III was on the horizon and this is my reply and explanation.

 

Once Iran controls the oil fields and both Mecca and Medina, and thus adding to the Shiite holy sites in Iran and in Iraq where their efforts will be directed in defending those near Islamic State borders or already swallowed by the Islamic State thus requiring liberation they can move to their next challenge. With their control over Mecca and Medina added to Damascus, Najaf, in Iraq with Qom in Iran they can then fortify any other Shiite holy places in Iraq from the ravages of the Islamic State and work towards returning Damascus and all of Syria which at the moment appears more like a pressing and difficult problem. Should the situation turn for the worst, as it appears that the Syrian and Hezballah forces are losing badly in Syria, Iran will need to interject some serious forces to reacquire all of Syria thus rejoining these lands with Iraq and thus attaining a direct land route for resupply. This will require the removal of Islamic State from their holdings and that may prove to be a most difficult task. None of these tasks are dependent on the Iranian production of nuclear weapons as those weapons can only be utilized in places which possess no natural or religiously important sites as such sites becoming uninhabitable due to radiation would defeat gaining their control. Taking out the Islamic State resources in open areas of lesser importance would be the perfect locations for tactical nuclear intervention providing breaking the treaty just negotiated would not prove advantageous as it would give the next President of the United States the perfect excuse to interfere with Iranian immediate plans to take control of the most prized and sensitive locations in all of Islam.

 

Fortunately for Israel and the United States these goals are more likely the primary goals for Iran as their gaining preeminence in the Muslim world and the display of Shia Islam as ascending and Sunni Islam as the weak and decrepit old and stale form of Islam would serve them well in converting the majority of Sunni adherents to Shiite doctrines. The fact that once the Iranians had defeated Saudi Arabia or at least gained the vital parts of the oil fields of the Gulf States and Saudi Arabia along with Mecca and Medina they could then set to establishing Madrassa throughout the Islamic and Western worlds replacing the Wahhabi schools and other centers with Shia schools and centers and will go a long way towards this goal. There are two other obstacles which Iran will need to overcome, Turkey and Egypt, both of which are well armed and have well trained militaries and will each pose their own necessary problems for the Iranians to address. Many might claim that the Kurds would also pose a problem but oddly enough, there are scenarios in which they could become allies if their ends were also considered. Should the Iranians prove to be the chess players they were at the P5+1 nuclear talks, not that President Obama desired to present any bit the real defender of the realm and actually desired to provide Iran with a perfectly clean route to nuclear weapons even to go so far as to provide United States assistance in designing the ultimate in centrifuges and potentially the actual plans, methods and procurement of equipment for the entire production of thermonuclear warheads and setting up multiple sites dispersed around Iran in German designed and build bunkers for their continued safety and Secretary Kerry as the clown at the talks being advised and encouraged all the while to simply give in at any sign of resistance and to make the demands in such a plaintive, diminutive and weak tone as to invite refusals, what could possibly go wrong as long as the American people were never aroused the plan would work, and it functioned like clockwork they will parley these gifts into further gains.

 

So, once Iran has cemented their control over the Arabian Peninsula, and the Shiite crescent through Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, the next two nuts to crack are Turkey and Egypt. Turkey can be defeated quickest and with minimal efforts providing they decide not to simply bow to Iranian hegemony and take the refusal to their retaining independence and instead becoming a semiautonomous district subject to the whims and necessities of Tehran, then Turkey will have been neutered and the Kurds circumvented and thus left alone for the time being as their threat is minimal as all they desire, much like Israel, is their little corner of the world and they will be content ad happy. Unfortunately for the people of Turkey, I do not see Erdogan capitulating and to subside his rule to Tehran which would make him an enemy. The best tactic for invading Turkey would be to seek the aid of the Kurds under the promise of granting them the eastern quarter of Turkey and the lands they already control even including Mosul as an autonomous region loyal to Iran. As long as the Iranians remain loyal to their promises the Kurds would do similarly. This would leave Egypt as the sole roadblock to hegemonic establishment of the Caliphate as the rest of North Africa would readily fall to Iran. There is no easy way to take Egypt but she could be weakened severely just by the loss of the Sinai Peninsula and grabbing control of the two ends of the Suez Canal thus taking from Egypt a major revenue source. Probably the best manner of taking Egypt is from within and by establishing Shia Islam as dominant and thus having them desire to join the strong and growing in power Iranians who are the true leaders of Islam and the emerging Caliphate.

 

After Egypt the goal changes immensely and the impossible must be considered, well, the impossible from the erudite scholars in the West, nobody told the Iranian or the Arab worlds that such was considered beyond acceptable, the seeking to conquer the entire world and willing to do whatever it takes and destroy half the world simply to rule the remainder. The United States has always practiced capture and release policy starting in the twentieth century and this molded their concept that any one nation conquering the world was out of the question. Europe, as we have seen, would be happy to unite Europe and have it ruled by a council of the nations and somehow find some formula that equalized Germany and Greece and the two completely foreign to each other lifestyles. Europe, in its self-imposed demilitarized European theater would pose little opposition should their Islamic populations approach thirty percent and decide that Europe should be required to join the Caliphate as the real and unadulterated authoritative force in the world. It is entirely possible that should there be rioting and mayhem with hundreds if not thousands murdered in the uprising that the European Union would desire quiet to such an extent as to capitulate and then the nations would call for a meeting of NATO and it is quite possible that most of NATO would claim their desire to join the Caliphate and desire all of NATO to simply recognize that this was the future of the world. The United States and possibly some of the eastern European nations would oppose such and NATO would effectively be dissolved allowing the majority of NATO nations and European Union nations would just surrender to Islam without a fight, the preferred method by the rulers of the Caliphate.

 

 

Could this be an Iranian Caliphate resulting from the concessions all are making in the here and now and their hungers being satiated by a weakened and war weary Western World, especially Europe and leftists in America?

At some point the remaining European powers, probably Poland and England and a few of the former Warsaw Pact nations resisting and uniting with the United States, and oddly enough, with China and Russia all unite in order to fight to prevent what they finally recognized was an actual intent to rule the entire globe. The unthinkable would finally begin to be realized that nobody had informed the Iranians that conquest of the world was an undesirable goal and totally unacceptable by what was formerly the civilized Western World. The problem is that only the Western World had ever adopted that concept. Unimaginable as it would be to think so, but even Kim Jong Un probably envisioned a world being ruled by him or one of his progeny. The remaining powers somehow included Israel, which had lost Tel Aviv to the Iranian hope that one bomb would end Israel. Instead that one bomb just steeled their steadfastness and lighted the resolve of one third of American Jewry who made Aliyah bringing with them their wealth, all under an emergency plan by Israel’s government calling for all Jews to male Aliyah immediately. This was stated to be the rallying for the safety of Israel and Jerusalem. This swelled the Jewish population even after the loss of almost two-million souls when Tel Aviv was struck; the Israeli Jewish population reached an unthinkable eleven-million Jews. This in-swelling of the Jews from around the world was seen by many younger Arab Islamists as a sign for them to move across the Jordan River and join with the Caliphate which had absorbed Jordan in a three day blitz. The Jordanian King was able to get his family inside Israel along with many of the ruling elites who desired the relative safety of Israel than to face the often unpredictable dictates of the Shia conquerors. Israel offered safety and provided an escape to the United States where they all took up residence in the Napa Valley and spent their days sipping wine on the various tours of the vineyards.

 

The alliance of Britain, Poland, Romania, Czechoslovakia, Russia, China, a number of other smaller former Soviet satellites and miraculously, Israel joined forces to end the rise of the Caliphate once and for all. It is inevitable given the divisions in this world which have irreconcilable differences and completely opposing philosophic views and precepts, the clash between the two once the weaker, Islam, could be united against the currently still stronger United States and the British commonwealth nations which includes Canada, Australia, the British Isles, Ireland (though they would deny it till the end), United States, India, New Zealand, and a few I probably missed, would band together in a response to any threat against a single state, especially if that threat was aimed at London and Ten Downing Street and Buckingham Palace as the world knows, there are but five Queens in this world and there are near countless versions of four and one stands apart. They are the Queen of Hearts, Queen of Clubs, Queen of Spades, and Queen of Diamonds and above them all is the Queen of England. That will be the next and hopefully final world war though I have my doubts about last. Let us pray that the deal struck with Iran does not make that final World War the one told of by Albert Einstein in the answer he presumably gave when asked what weapons World War III would be fought with and he replied “I do not know with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”
