It seems that the US is stepping up their sabre rattling against Iran as we speak.... According to this article from Global Research, at www.globalresearch.ca, it appears that the US is rapidly moving forces into the Middle East in their preparation to launch an attack against Iran under the false premise of conducting "military maneuvers" in the region! Here is that Global Research article, and I have some comments to follow:
As we reported last week, during US Defense Secretary Leon Panettas October 3 Tel Aviv visit, Israeli hawks attempted to persuade Panetta to give the green light for a military strike on Iran. Within ten days, details of an alleged assassination plot against a Saudi ambassador emerged and the foiled attack was blamed on Iran. Innumerable experts immediately voiced their doubts about the authenticity of the plot, with 21-year CIA veteran Robert Baer labeling the story a truly awful Hollywood script.
The US military will respond this week with a series of significant military maneuvers designed to threaten Iran, including, an American air fleet in Middle East skies ready to land at any moment for any contingency, reports DebkaFile.
The United States launches a large-scale exercise over the Middle East deploying 41 giant transports of the 22nds Airlift Squadron Monday Oct. 17, states the report, adding that the aircraft will be packed with fully equipped, battle ready troops.
A further seven warships from the Stennis Battle Group will also provide ground troops with combat support and strike land and sea targets.
The Israeli, Egyptian and Saudi armies have also been placed on maximum preparedness, echoing reports that U.S. troops being sent to the region have also been put on full alert.
The maneuvers are also linked to the scheduled release of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit by Hamas on Tuesday, an event that US intelligence officials fear could set off a chain of attacks in the region against US and Israeli targets. Should embassies be targeted, US troops will be in place to react swiftly.
Geopolitical experts have been consistent in their warnings that Israel was preparing to strike Iran this fall.
Back in July, CIA veteran Baer told KPFK Los Angeles that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was planning an attack on Iran in September to coincide with the Palestine bid for UN membership.
Whether the maneuvers are merely designed to be an act of belligerence against Iran or represent preparations for an actual military strike in support of Israel remains to be seen, but as Gulf News reporter Patrick Seale pointed out Friday, the window of opportunity for an attack on Iran is closing.
Some western military experts have been quoted as saying that the window of opportunity for an Israeli air attack on Iran will close within two months, since the onset of winter would make such an assault more difficult, writes Seale, adding that the Israelis eagerness to launch the attack has caused considerable alarm in Washington and in a number of European capitals.
Both Republican and Democratic US lawmakers have issued strong statements against Iran in recent days, with several all but calling for war. Last week, New York Republican Peter King called on the Obama administration to put troops on standby, labeling the alleged Iranian assassination plot an act of war. On Sunday, Democrat Dianne Feinstein, the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, warned that the US and Iran were on a collision course.

NTS Notes: This is sickening to see.... The United States Government got caught in the total lie of their false Iranian terrorist plot against a Saudi Ambassador, and rather than admit their mistakes and calm the rhetoric, they are instead proceeding with breakneck speed to have combat forces in place for an assault against Iran!
Readers, it should be obvious by now that the Israeli controlled poodles in the US Government are doing exactly what their Jewish masters have commanded them to do, and to go and attack and destroy Iran. And where is the American public in all of this? I guess they are being brainwashed by the lies perpetrated against the innocent people of Iran by the criminals in the media, and the majority are like mindless drones that will support this evil war when it gets off and running...
The question now becomes when will Israel or the United States itself finally launch their new war of aggression against Iran? I strongly suspect that an Israeli Mossad false flag attack is coming very soon to America to be blamed on Iran, and that somehow due to these criminals' twisted usage of numerology, I suspect that newest false flag attack will be launched on November 11th, 2011 (11-11-11), if not sooner...
The best hope now to avert a possible new World War is for the public to finally stop these criminals in their tracks.... I do pray that the American public finally wakes up from their slumber and stops this madness before it is too late...
More to come
