    Iran has demanded that the Poms give their oil tanker back,I wonder what they might do if they don't :eek:

    I read today that the Project on Terrorism said that Iran has sleeper cells around the world waiting to be activated,what ever happens it should be "interesting" (from a distance) either way :confused:













    The Book of Ephesians Chapter 3 verses 20 & 21

    Now to him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think,according to the power that works in us,to Him be the glory in the Church by Jesus Christ to all generations ,forever and ever.Amen :)

    MAJOR: Iran May Take North Korea Route Towards Nuclear Armament
    https://www.fort-russ.com/2019/07/m...=wp&utm_campaign=push&utm_content=new-article

    Yesterday, Tehran announced the second phase of the reduction of obligations. The Islamic Republic explained this by the fact that the countries, who are signatories of the deal, could not fulfill the demands put forward earlier by Iran within 60 days. These concerned the economic interests of the country.

    In Iran, they also announced the third stage, as a result of which the level of enrichment could increase to 20%.
    This is the most significant announcement of all, because these are levels necessary to achieve a nuclear weapon level grade.

    US fails to uphold their end of the deal: "crickets chirping"
    Iran forced to hold excess enriched stock due to sanctions preventing its sale to non-proliferating states: "BREAKING NEWS IRAN ENRICHING WEAPONS GRADE URANIUM"

    The hypocrisy of the MSM and its sheeple will never end. The only sleeper cells I worry about are the passport stealing mossad/cia crews that like to fake oil tanker attacks and airline hijacks.

    REVEALED: U.S Begged Iran For ‘Limited Air Strike’ To Save Face After Drone Downing https://www.fort-russ.com/2019/07/r...=wp&utm_campaign=push&utm_content=new-article
    “After the downing of its intruding drone, the United States told us through diplomatic intermediaries that it wanted to carry out a limited operation in unimportant and deserted region to save face and asked us to avoid giving them a response, but Iran said it would regard any operation as the initiation of a war,” Brigadier General Gholamreza Jalali, the head of Iran’s Stationary Defense, said last Sunday.

    We in the western world have been conditioned and programmed by our zionist controlled media, to believe that Iranians are bad people.
    While in reality, nothing could be further from the truth.

    I have recently been following on YouTube a Dutch woman traveling through the middle east on a motorbike.
    When she was traveling through Iran she experienced a mechanical breakdown.

    The Iranian people came to her rescue, took her bike to a workshop, phoned around for replacement parts. and then fixed her bike for her.
    They would not take any money for any of this assistance or work.

    She was also warmly welcomed into the people's homes and offered accommodation and hospitality.
    I wonder if she would have received this kind of help or hospitality in a western country?

    I also know for a fact that the Iranians have been helping the displaced Christians in Syria with food and humanitarian aid,
    while the western-backed forces have been slaughtering them and driving them out of existence.

    Almost everything we have been taught about our world is a lie...
    and the sad fact is most people couldn't care less!

    A lot of times, we tend to judge a country by it's people. Nazi Germany is nasty, but are Germans bad people? WWII Japanese soldiers commited the worst attrocities ever in any wars in modern history, but are Japanese people bad people?

    The way a country behaves has nothing to do with the people.

    The Persian people are great generally speaking. They embraced western culture before the theocracy took over in the 70s. I just can't understand why those Persian folks keep voting in those nasty mullahs at each election cycle? Those religious leaders surely must have good campaign managers I am guessing?

    Unless humanity wakes up soon to the reality that the real dangers facing our planet are not found in Moscow, Tehran, and Pyongyang, but rather
    In Washington DC, and in the City of London, and in Vatican City, and in Jerusalem, then we will be unable to avert the apocalypse war which will kill a large proportion of the humans on this planet in a very short time.

    Leftists are such funny folks. Yes the jews and US are the boogeyman. If jews do control things, that is good. How would things look if the religion of peace followers were in charge? At least you know you would not have any real elections, just dictators. But that is what lefties need because generally they are such wimps they need someone to tell them what to believe and do through indoctrination. No wonder it is so easy to take your gun rights away.

    Meanwhile, leftists live great under the protection of the US and jews, along with the US allies like the Australian Government. So maybe you should add Oz gov to the dreaded list? Thank goodness the Oz gov has some brains unlike some of its inhabitants.

    Here are some of the folks you support. They would never allow folks go to a PRIDE march or Antifa march. So you might want to consider that before b!tching too much.

    You all do so much to save humanity, sitting in your little world defending the worse regimes in modern history. Why not move to one of these poor victim countries and lend your (insignificant) support?

    Watch old mate from NZ as he travels through Iran last year. His experience is pretty much in line with that of the Dutch tourist noted by prospect.

    My take on what this traveller is seeing and saying is that the Iranian people in the main have a much different view than their leaders and clerics.

    There's 7 or 8, 20 min long vids.

    I totally agree with your take on the majority of Iranian people being a lot different from the religious despots running the country.
    At least over there, the rulers are open and transparent about some of their abhorrent practices and rituals.
    While here in the West, we have just as sick ( if not sicker) psychopaths running our countries, only here they hide their pedophilia and
    child sacrifice rituals from the general public and do these type of abhorrent things in private gatherings.

    With regards to the arrest of Epstein, it appears to be nothing more than a fall guy stunt by the deep state.
    Until the likes of Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, and other high profile Epstein clients are also arrested,
    I will say that the deep state is still firmly in control of things on this planet.
    Sorry Trumpards, I also wish it was not so.

    the right question is, what is a British Frigate doing in Iranian water?

    Iran’s Revolutionary Guards deny trying to stop UK tanker in Persian Gulf

    Iran accused of botched UK tanker raid… just DAY after US call to arms against Tehran

    Best way to avoid war is to put Drumph out in front of the army to lead the charge but he probably has a bone spur like during Vietnam.
    Maybe he could persuade them with his award winning contract negotiating skills like he did with the tariffs, Obamacare, NAFTA, and the wall.
    He might have to give himself a couple of Medals of Honor before all this is over with. Hes almost a spitting image of General Washington but probably more of a patriot and much more heroic. If you dont believe me just ask him.

    PIRACY! Iran REVEALS Why The UK Illegally Seized Its Oil Tanker At Gibraltar

    This outright act of high-seas piracy can only take on the appearance of normalcy for the UK’s subjects, based on a lack of moral principle and high levels of chauvinism, fueled by a reactionary and jingoist press.



    “US and UK’s measure to seize Iran’s oil tanker was in violation of international laws and this act will bring disgrace upon them. They realized that Iran has found solutions to sell its oil; so they went too far, and ignoring international law, produced a spark which will embroil themselves,” Jahangiri said while addressing the nationwide governors’ conference in Tehran on Thursday.

    Gibraltar police and customs agencies, aided by a detachment of British Royal Marines, boarded and impounded supertanker Grace 1, carrying Iranian oil, in the Strait of Gibraltar on Thursday, upon a request from the United States.

    Later that day, Iran’s Foreign Ministry summoned Britain’s ambassador to the country, Rob Macaire, to express its strong protest at the move. He was told that the British Royal Marines’ move was tantamount to “maritime piracy.”

    London claims that the tanker had been carrying Iranian oil to Syria, which is under European Union’s sanctions but Iran says first, the tanker was not headed to Syria, and second, Iran is not a member an EU member and also not subject to any European oil embargo. Tehran has called for an immediate release of the oil tanker warning that the responsibility for consequences of this provocative acts falls on London. “I warn England that you are the initiator of insecurity in seas and you will later understand its repercussions,” President Rouhani said Wednesday.

    Iran says US is behind the measure which tries to bring down Iranian oil sales to zero as part of its maximum pressure policy against the Islamic Republic. Iranian officials reiterate that this policy will not yield any result for Washington as Iranians are well familiar with the culture of resistance.

    “We have sold our oil and oil sales are increasing by the day,” Jahangiri also highlighted in the same event.

    Are the mullahs really elected, I would have thought that the elections are only for the president which is underneath the mullahs. In all autocratic or top-down societies, the people are usually rather docile or well behaved - they have to be otherwise they cannot be controlled.
