The Next Super Power Faceoff

 

The world media overlook Iran except in some individuals who are fixated on the Middle East. We almost fit that picture except we also glance towards Europe, Russia and even the United States every so often just because things happen. What most of the world does not realize is that Iranian borders do not stop at Iraq, Syria, the Persian Gulf or Afghanistan. The Iranian borders circumnavigate that and so much more. Iran also includes virtually all of Yemen, Lebanon and soon to include Bahrain, Qatar and heavy cooperation, if not complete incorporation, of Eritrea, Djibouti and parts or use of Somalia and the Sudan. Iran likely had forces hidden away in Gaza where Islamic Jihad and Hamas are allied with Iran as well as forces in the Sinai Peninsula. The probability of Iran deciding that Jordan would make a fortuitous addition to its territory, there would be little Jordanian forces could do to prevent such an occurrence (which is why we included Jordan as part of a Greater Iran). We consistently hear complaints of the devious plans for a Greater Israel. Let us think of that for a moment and compare it with peace loving Iran which was an United States ally for much of the past decade and only recently have things turned somewhat sour. Israel returned the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt in return for a cold peace. Israel returned all of southern Lebanon after rescuing the Christians who were being slaughtered by invading Syrian troops without even receiving any treaty. In return for this Hezballah took control of that territory and Iran has backed them with between one-hundred-thousand and one-hundred-fifty-thousand, if not more, rockets and missiles of all sizes, ranges, payloads and guidance capabilities from ten kilometer range with one kilogram payload and no guidance to missiles which can strike all of Israel and into Egypt, possibly to Cairo, with ten-thousand-kilogram payloads with guidance capable of striking within ten meters of the intended target.

 

Iran, in the meantime has taken control of Iraq as a present from the United States pulling their troops. They have been a great friend to the Syria dictator Bashir al-Assad and with assistance from Russia have assisted Bashir al-Assad to retain his hold on Syria where Iran is building a base for the IRGC* within twenty miles of the Golan Heights and the Israeli border. Lebanon has been controlled by Hezballah who have militarized the southern third of the nation with a system of tunnels and underground bunkers along with the aforementioned rockets and missiles. Additionally, they have artillery pieces similar to the German 88 mm anti-tank artillery. We have one of these pieces as part of a fountain at the main entrance to our home town in Israel as it was captured and had been utilized by Hezballah to shell our town during one of the Hezballah wars. Hezballah is, for intents and purposes, a number of groups of units under the command of the IRGC, the Iranian foreign military command which is a separate but fully capable arm of the Iranian military. The Houthis rebels now control the major cities and ports in Yemen and virtually the entire nation and have lobbed rockets into Saudi Arabia including at Riyadh, the Capital of Saudi Arabia, and have been armed by Iran and aided by the IRGC. Iranian weaponry has been intercepted in the Sudan, Sinai Peninsula crossing into Gaza and in the Mediterranean Sea such as the MV Karine A. Greater Iran is a reality which has been ignored by the world media while Israel, which has surrendered territory for the sake of peace, of striving to engulf the Arab world into a Greater Israel. Greater Iran is the width and breadth and has great similarity to the one nation which currently appears to be in the Iranian crosshairs, the United States. Their areas are comparable and they both command the greater part of the battlefield of a continent and are capable of projecting power over wide areas with missiles which are capable of striking anywhere on the globe and being capable of carrying nuclear payloads to any location and it is believed that Iran, despite the Iranian Nuclear Deal, has been manufacturing nuclear weapons for well over a decade and has mastered the technology for manufacture of thermonuclear devices and Super EMP devices. Below are maps of what could very easily be Greater Iran and the United States should there be a conflict between these adversaries sometime in the next decade, possibly two decades. Hopefully a peaceful solution can be found which will satisfy the hunger of Iran for reestablishing the glory and modern version of the conquests of the Persian Empire. The Persian Empire reached the Grecian Isles, down both coasts of the Saudi Peninsula and as far as Egypt. Their known world was presumed to be quite a bit smaller than the entirety of the globe is today, not to mention, conquering the known world today includes a few nations quite capable of defending themselves such as Russia and China. And as mentioned, there is the United States should Iran attempt to take control of any NATO nations such as Greece and Turkey.

The Next Super Power Faceoff

 

Should one listen to the speeches given by the true leader of the Iranian nation, the Grand Ayatollah, Sayyed Ali Hosseini Khamenei (سید علی حسینی خامنه‌ای Persian), one would believe that his ambitions are universal. He envisions an Iranian Shiite Kingdom having complete sovereignty over the entirety of planet Earth. He does not foresee his ruling Iran in that day but that some future Grand Ayatollah after him. He sees such as the will of Allah and thus inevitable. What might ruin this are the visions of Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan who claims his only vision is to take Aleppo, Mosul and the remainder of the Kurdish regions as his effort to reestablish the Ottoman Empire. Then there are the Wahabbists and the Muslim Brotherhood, both of which see themselves at the head of a Sunni Empire of the Earth. One must wonder in such times as these if perchance we will see another attempt by the French to conquer all of Europe including Russia or perhaps the return of the great empires of Europe, Asia, the Americas, Africa and who knows where else. All the while, no matter the realities of the world, the wars flaring, the suffering of humanity in far too many areas and the numerous designs on ruling the world and spreading ones culture over all mankind, the one thing which will remain constant will be the preoccupation of the United Nations and all of its various agencies with the imagined evils of the Jewish State of Israel.

Silence for the Sheeple

 

The media is not so much in the business of informing the people as they are in pushing agendas, disguising unfortunate truths, misinterpreting informative statements, concealing facts and allowing reality to hide behind the smoke they are publishing. This has never been more true than the current storm attempting to dilute or dissolve the truth spoken by top designer Karl Lagerfeld speaking on the show, “Salut les Terriens! (Hello Earthlings!) Show” on the C8 Channel on November 11, 2017, attacking German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Mr. Lagerfeld has been libeled by private television broadcaster RTL in its magazine Exclusiv where RTL journalist, Marc Sterzenbach, was asked why Lagerfeld made the remarks. The remarks in question from the show “Salut les Terriens!” by Karl Lagerfeld were made intending to be critical of Chancellor Angela Merkel and her open borders policy where he stated, “One cannot, even if there are decades between them, kill millions of Jews so you can bring millions of their worst enemies in their place. I know someone in Germany who took a young Syrian and after four days said ‘the greatest thing Germany invented was the Holocaust.’ The young man was thrown out.” Responding to this, Marc Sterzenbach stated, “Indeed Chanel is in the hands of a Jewish family, the Wertheimers.” Well, that explains it, those Jews whining again. And of all the Jews to be whining, one working for one of those Jews who own the world and control everything. It was the usual ‘classic anti-Semitic cliché concerning the so-called “Jewish world conspiracy.” Jews have no reason to complain about the state of things as they make the world what it is. Much of the media came rushing to the defense of Chancellor Merkel and her program accepting Middle East refugees en-masse. RTL was defended by Jewish author Henryk Broder noting that, “Besides that, there are quite a few fashion and cosmetic firms which are in ‘Jewish hands’ that have never been noticed by RTL, nor has it disturbed anybody there.” Well, that must be the end of it.

 

So, the main objection had to do with the fact that Karl Lagerfeld worked for the Jewish owned Chanel and thus was overly sensitive to things and was biased against the policies of Angela Merkel who was being a good universalist humanitarian and obviously, Mr. Lagerfeld obviously suffered from deep Islamophobia. Almost universally, the commentary was about Karl Lagerfeld and his obvious biases and employment while, when mentioned, defending poor maligned Chancellor Merkel and completely ignoring the actual statement itself. Heavens forbid there ever be a serious discussion about the possibility that the unrestricted immigration from the Middle East, from Syria, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Sudan and other MENA* nations has had on Europe. It is forbidden to mention the increase in sexual assaults on women so much so that the police refuse to even take reports as long as nobody is severely injured, as in hospitalized. Petty theft and simple robberies are also underreported as police attempt to avoid reporting any increases as that might require an explanation. Unfortunately, politics has replaced police reporting in much of western Europe, specifically in France, Germany, Sweden and the other nations which have taken in large numbers of the refugee population from the Middle East. Ever since the New Year’s Eve mass sexual assaults in Germany were covered up until much later when it could be dismissed as “old news” and already discussed and dealt with. The reality is the problems caused by unrestricted and unfettered immigration from the Middle East not only have never been discussed, but have actually intentionally been shunned and silenced with anybody daring to mention such things being ridiculed and accused of being a racist or worse, an Islamophobe. The new group immune from any bad media, critical statistics, accusations or blame of any kind and anybody brazen enough to speak the truth is shouted down, insulted, misinterpreted and their message so garbled, mangled and even totally edited such that the truth is lost in translation, if translation can also be so mangled as was the message by Karl Lagerfeld concerning Angela Merkel and her continued policy of unhindered and unfettered immigration.

Karl Lagerfeld Who Reputedly Works for the Jewish Owned Chanel

 

This German media refusal to permit any bad press for Muslim refugee immigrants along with Chancellor Angela Merkel and her open borders policy goes far deeper than the malicious and underserved maligning of Karl Lagerfeld and even swipes at Chanel for being Jewish owned, as it also permeated the recent coverage of the campaigns in the recent German elections. As reported here, the German government Censored the press, social media and Internet ahead of their elections in favor of the reelection of Chancellor Merkel. This could be the start of the end of German democracy. In an article titled Germans Lose Faith in the Fourth Estate it is made obvious that the people no longer trust their news media and see it as simply a mouthpiece for the government and Angela Merkel. Of course, there were articles of the massive forces using media manipulation against Chancellor Merkel which were the reason for the government to step in. Who were these nefarious evil-doers? Why, the Russians, who else? Then there were those meddling American Think Tanks and Foundations who were also trying to unseat Merkel. There was this report from a Polish think tank about the increasing censorship and control of social media, particularly over Merkel policies and the problems it may have spawned. There have been more recent studies which have revealed that government manipulation of the media as well as political parties using media tools to their advantage have distorted and falsified much of the media, especially the on-line media as reported here and here. Currently, it is Karl Lagerfeld getting the treatment in Germany as he committed the most serious of crimes, he spoke the truth about Angela Merkel, her open borders policies and the lack of vetting or even the slightest background checks and the effects it has had on German society. Sure glad we haven’t gotten on her majesty’s wrong side.

Merkel and a Plethora of Passionate Pacifists Against Trump

 

Granted, President Donald J. Trump presented a strong and definitive speech which outlined precisely where the world sits and what the future potentially holds. Chancellor Angela Merkel was really put out by what she determined that President Trump has threatened to eradicate the twenty-five million plus North Koreans in order to remove Kim Jong-un from threatening, well, according to Ms. Merkel, virtually nobody as he simply was acting slightly inappropriately and sanctions should suffice. There are a few slight problems, distortions and misunderstandings within Chancellor Merkel’s objections. President Trump did not threaten to annihilate the population of North Korea simply to kill their man-deity leader Kim Jong-un. To clear the air, allow us to present the exact words from President Trump’s speech to the United Nations, which can be viewed and read here.

No one has shown more contempt for other nations and for the wellbeing of their own people than the depraved regime in North Korea. It is responsible for the starvation deaths of millions of North Koreans, and for the imprisonment, torture, killing, and oppression of countless more.
We were all witness to the regime’s deadly abuse when an innocent American college student, Otto Warmbier, was returned to America only to die a few days later. We saw it in the assassination of the dictator’s brother using banned nerve agents in an international airport. We know it kidnapped a sweet 13-year-old Japanese girl from a beach in her own country to enslave her as a language tutor for North Korea’s spies.
If this is not twisted enough, now North Korea’s reckless pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles threatens the entire world with unthinkable loss of human life.
It is an outrage that some nations would not only trade with such a regime, but would arm, supply, and financially support a country that imperils the world with nuclear conflict. No nation on earth has an interest in seeing this band of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles.
The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary. That’s what the United Nations is all about; that’s what the United Nations is for. Let’s see how they do.
It is time for North Korea to realize that the denuclearization is its only acceptable future. The United Nations Security Council recently held two unanimous 15-0 votes adopting hard-hitting resolutions against North Korea, and I want to thank China and Russia for joining the vote to impose sanctions, along with all of the other members of the Security Council. Thank you to all involved.
But we must do much more. It is time for all nations to work together to isolate the Kim regime until it ceases its hostile behavior.

 

President Trump only stated that if the United States were forced to defend itself, any of the United States allies, actually attacked or otherwise placed with no other alternative, then the United States is capable and potentially willing and have “no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.” There was a long line of prerequisites before President Trump would, theoretically, be tempted to take such desperate and drastic action. What President Trump actually stated was a threat to the rest of the world, Chancellor Merkel in particular, to take the threats, nuclear tests and missile firings of Kim Jong-un seriously and take some actions to bring an end to Kim Jong-un and the very real threat he poses to the remainder of the world. President Trump also included on his list the Mullahs in Iran, President for life Maduro of Venezuela and, as a side comment, Cuba, that their socialist governments and the threats posed to their people and the world as a whole are, as President Obama would say, on the wrong side of history. The threat was more to those nations who would turn their other cheek to companies trading with North Korea and these other threats to the free world. President Trump was ringing the alarm bell and he did not do so any too early. This alarm has actually been ringing for a very long time and administration after administration simply kicked the can down the road hoping to outlast the problem having it explode in somebody else’s face, just not their face. President Trump has decided not to risk kicking the can down the road and has instead rested his foot over the can and asked the world to help before he has to stomp down and crush that can. Now we just have to see if the world will act to contain the problem or instead act like Chancellor Merkel and blame the messenger.

President Trump has put his faith, for now, in the United Nations, the Free World, the allies of the United States and the rest of the world to act in good faith and do the right thing. He has asked a bunch of people suffering from avoidance of reality with a propensity to push off responsibility for their actions and ignoring any sign that might require their actually taking action to address the actual, real threats of our world which they would rather smooth over with words and blather usually using meaningless phrases such that all mean that they do not have to actually decide and act in any significant way. President Trump was making a cry for help, a last ditch final plea for the world to act before there are no other options other than an actual strike on North Korea exactly as described in the speech. This was not a threat sent to Kim Jong-un, though he is the one person who could heed the warning and save the world relying on a group of unfortunately weak-willed leadership from across Europe and beyond to actually do something righteous. The entire parts of Trump’s speech relating to Kim Jong-un, North Korea and the failures of socialism were warnings that many who believe in socialism who are ready to do everything necessary to undercut and destroy Western Judeo-Christian based civilization will need to be opposed meaningfully before they are permitted to succeed. We have written extensively about the war against Judeo-Christianity and how it is succeeding simply because those who have been tasked to defend the Western World and Judeo-Christianity have been asleep at the wheel for far too long. Chancellor Merkel will never understand that she herself was one of the major contributors to a possible end of Europe as a hospitable home for Judeo-Christianity. Her policies have placed the future of European culture in jeopardy just as much as the leftist ideology which has led to the abortion of the necessary children to continue European culture into the future. Instead, most of Western (Old) Europe has joined the parts of the world which have negative growth reproductive rates. Other nations with negative growth rates include Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Croatia, Slovakia, Afghanistan, Algeria, Azerbaijan, Cuba, Yemen, Venezuela, United States, United Kingdom, Turkey, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Jordan and a host of others. Most of them are Western nations where abortion is legal, socialist nations and dictatorships. The one name noticeable by its absence is North Korea, that is a frightening thought.
