From The Files Of Absurdity, Volume CXXV: Israel Tries Desperately (Again) To Get Their War Against Iran Going!

The Iranian government just concluded a deal where they will exchange their 3.5% Uranium refined ore for 20% refined Uranium product through the help of Turkey, and Brazil, as middle-men in a so called "third party" enrichment deal. It has been haled as a major breakthrough, and definitely will ease any notion of Iran "developing Nuclear Weapons" as the evil Israelis, and their trolls in the US Government, keep on trying to push through their BS media to the people. As I have stated many times, Iran is NOT seeking nuclear weapons and is a signor of the NPT and abides by all rules laid out by the IAEA for its peaceful use and development of nuclear fuel for its nuclear power plants.

However, the Zionist Israelis will never give up in their attempts to have the world fight their next war of conquest against the innocent people of Iran. The propaganda machine is still rolling, and from what you will see through this article, from www.israelnationalnews.com, the level of absurdity knows no bounds:

Iran Prepared to Block Gulf Oil and Wreck Western Economies

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Iran’s recently-concluded war games concentrated on preparations to block the Persian Gulf and wreck Western economies in the event that the United Nations Security Council tries to place harsh sanctions against it.

Forty percent of the world’s oil and gas sails through the Persian Gulf, and an Iranian blockade would cause an inflationary spike in energy prices and a fuel shortage that could cause catastrophe for the West, which is dependent on Iranian crude to fuel their gas-hungry economies.

Public affairs consultant Lenny Ben-David, a former senior Israeli diplomat in Israel’s embassy in Washington, pointed out on Cutting Edge.com Monday that the Islamic Republic stopped, searched or photographed several Western ships durng the eight-day war games.

The Revolutionary Navy searched a French and an Italian vessel for "environmental" checks, buzzed the U.S. Eisenhower in what American officials called a “close encounter,” and patrolled the Gulf, also known as the Straits of Hormuz, stopping and checking destroyers and cargo ships.

The Iranian Air Force also drove away a U.S. reconnaissance drone that was monitoring Iran's massive Gulf military exercises that concluded last Thursday.

During and after the war games, Tehran issued daily press releases boasting of new and advanced speed boats, an anti-submarine torpedo and advanced arms for attacking ships.

Ben-David noted, “While the press focuses on the Iranian military exercises, uranium enrichment, and long-range missile development, the navies of dozens of countries have been relatively quietly gravitating toward the Persian Gulf. “

The war games exercises in the Gulf sent a clear signal to the West regarding what may be in store if it succeeds in placing tough sanctions against Iran as a way to try to force it to comply with international rules on the development of its nuclear program.

Iran’s government and semi-official media reported that the Revolutionary Guards tested a new speedboat that can destroy enemy ships, sending a pointed reminder that it is capable of blocking the Gulf. Iran also successfully fired an anti-submarine torpedo durng the war games, Iran's Press TV reported. “The submarines had managed to enter the waters of the hypothetical enemy and pass the enemy's linking lines,” it stated.

Iran’s Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said the war games aimed to demonstrate that Iran has full control over shipping activities in the Gulf area.

Armed Forces Commander Major General Ataollah Salehi announced Tuesday that two medium-range cruise missiles were launched from Iran’s southern coast and hit mock targets that were moving on the sea. Iranian news agencies said the missile also can evade radar systems because it flies at a low altitude.

"It's past the epoch when America would change the regime in a country by just dispatching a warship,” Salehi added. “We have been able to challenge the U.S. not only in the sea but also in all international arenas.”

Israel Aerospace Industries chairman Yair Shamir commented that the cruise missile “is an extremely serious danger." He noted that the missile was supplied by Ukraine before being upgraded in Iran.

The Air Force also claimed successes. Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Air Force for Operations General Seyed Mohammad Alawi told Fars News Agency that Phantom warplanes fired new missiles that hit and destroyed their targets. (IsraelNationalNews.com)


NTS Notes: This is absolutely laughable and absolutely absurd. Iran knows that its international commerce and trade depends on the flow of petroleum through the Straits of Hormuz and there is absolutely no way, short of an attack on its own soil, that the Iranian leadership would ever consider closing the straits, and "wreck the Western economies" as this report erroneously claims. Therefore this is nothing more than more Israeli propaganda BS at its smelliest!

The rhetoric and false propaganda machine of the Zionist Jews is still going nonstop, and it is up to us to get the real truth out. This is another one for my Files of Absurdity, and they will keep coming....

More to come
