Column of US Troops Heads BACK to Syria

The development comes after Washington decided to withdraw US troops from northeastern Syria following the start of a Turkish military operation against Kurdish forces on October 9.

A column of US troops has returned to northeastern Syria’s al-Hasakah Province from Iraq, Syria TV reports.

The news outlet claimed that “the column of American occupation forces entered […] the province through the illegal al-Walid border crossing” and that the column, which includes “dozens of soldiers and military hardware” is covered by US combat helicopters.

This comes a day after US Defence Secretary Mark Esper said that the US would maintain a “reduced presence” in Syria, citing concerns about Daesh terrorists taking control of nearby oil fields.

Almost two weeks ago, Esper pledged that the US would withdraw all of its force of 1,000 soldiers from northeastern Syria, after Turkey launched its military operation in the area to drive Kurdish militias and remaining Daesh militants away from the border.

Russia Concerned Over US Military Returning to Northern Syria

Commenting on Esper’s statement that some US troops will remain in north-eastern Syria, Russian Defence Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said that the statement did not come as a surprise.

“What Washington does now – the capture and holding under its armed control of oil fields in Eastern Syria is, simply speaking, international state banditism,” he stressed, adding that Syrian oil reserves and other mineral resources belong solely to the Syrian Arab Republic, not to Daesh or to “American protectors from Daesh terrorists”.

He also said that “neither international law, nor the American legislation itself can justify the US troops’ goal to guard Syrian hydrocarbon reserves from Syria itself and its people.”

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov suggested that the fresh contradictory signals the US has sent regarding Syria may indicate Washington’s desire to maintain conditions that allow for continued pressure on Damascus.

“We are very definitely worried that the signals from the White House may reflect the same attitude: to preserve the conditions for continuing multi-component pressure on the legitimate authorities in Damascus”, he pointed out, adding that “this is the moment we don’t agree and we can’t agree with the United States on the situation.”

He said that Moscow “would not like new complications” on the Syria issue, touting the work that “has been done at the level of the leadership of Russia and Turkey in recent days.”

“The results of the negotiations in Sochi should not tempt anyone to reformat or change something again,” Ryabkov emphasised. From Sputnik

From i24 News – US, Iranian officials held secret talks in Iraq last week

125 Iranian officials were said to be arrested, charged with espionage in an attempt to neutralize them

Secret meetings between US government officials and Iranian officials took place last week at a hotel in Erbil, the capital of the Kurdish region in Iraq, sources informed i24NEWS, as the Iranian regime shows signs of a nascent upheaval.

The Iranian delegation, which has at times been at odds with government policy, was headed by the grandson of Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini, Hassan Khomeini, and also included two officials from the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as well as Iraj Masjedi, Iran’s special envoy to Iraq.

Iran has reportedly been contacting Kurdish opposition parties based in Iraq, but the talks remained “useless,” according to internal Iranian sources who informed i24NEWS’ senior political correspondent Christian Malard.

“The Iranian Communist Party”, one of the Kurdish opposition parties, announced that some of the major Kurdish parties have been secretly meeting with the Iranian officials for the past two years under the monitoring of a Norwegian NGO, which identity the party refused to reveal.

Sources suggest that Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, especially its Basij forces — one of the five forces of the IRGC — have experienced division, suggesting Iran’s leadership is working to counter a budding soft coup.

125 Iranian officials were said to be arrested recently and charged with espionage in an attempt to neutralize them for purportedly turning their backs on the regime.

Many others have been removed from their official posts or simply disappeared from the public eye without any explanation, such as Gen. Ali Nasiri, who has likely been detained, according to sources, while others were killed in assassination plots that include fatal medical injections and car “accidents”.

During the secret talks, American officials stayed at the same hotel in Erbil as Saudi officials who were later relocated away from the negotiation venue.

Back in May, Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi said he would send delegations to both Washington and Tehran in order to calm tensions.

In March, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani made his first official visit to Iraq, despite pressure from Washington for Baghdad to limit ties with its neighbor.

NY Times Reports Trump Had Approved Iran Strike, Then Abruptly Called it off

” The operation was underway in its early stages when it was called off, a senior administration official said. Planes were in the air and ships were in position, but no missiles had been fired when word came to stand down, the official said.” Quote from the NY Times article, read it here.

President Trump had given the go ahead to attack some of Iran’s radar and missile facilities but as it was getting underway (planes in the air and ships in position) it was called off. No one is saying exactly why at the moment but there is a civil war going on inside the administration. According to multiple sources there is the Bolton side and the Trump/Pompeo side. Bolton and company want a super aggressive approach while Trump and Pompeo prefer to stay the course with sanctions and pressure. Neither one will work in the long run.

Iran has made it clear that they’re done being pushed around and cut off from the world. I don’t care for their government or it’s policies but the U.S. has no right to tell the world what to do and who to be friends with. It is the U.S. who has been the aggressor in all of this by surrounding Iran with bases. The U.S. are the ones who put war time sanctions on Iran that are worse than what was put on Japan prior to WW2. Couple that with the nonstop threats from the U.S. and Israel and it’s a wonder the shooting hasn’t already started.

Both sides say that they don’t want war. I think it’s being put into motion by design. The evil forces at work behind the scenes and pulling the strings want the U.S. to go away. The balance of power is shifting from the west (US, UK and EU) to the east (China/Russia). Yes there are other factors at play here such as the “deal of the century” so it’s anyone’s guess as to why this attack didn’t move forward. The only answer I can come up with is that someone (or a group) of powerful people didn’t want the war to start just yet. Keep in mind Henry Kissinger has been spotted popping in and out of meetings so the deep state is calling the shots.

So far there’s been no word on whether or not the attack has just been delayed or if it’s been called off entirely. The NYT article said that even though there’s no more details none of the sources contacted asked them to hold the story. Obviously they wanted this to be out. The question is why? Time will tell. God bless and stay prayed up and PREPPED up. Something could give at any time.

Prepare….

That’s what I hear when I pray today. Prepare. Time is short folks. If you have any last minute items you need or have something you’ve been putting off (like me) then don’t hesitate any longer. Get it done.

War between Iran and the U.S. is a certainty and once it starts gas prices could go as high as $12 per gallon so I’d fill up now if you can. Today the Trump administration will address both houses and I expect them to say all indications are for war. Iran and the rest of the world knows it’s coming, only here in America do the people continue to scoff and mock. The videos below will show you what’s coming. God bless and stand firm.

Pompeo Warns Iran About Trigger For US Military Action, More Earthquake News

We are here folks, the birth pangs of the tribulation.

From the Stamford Advocate

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has privately delivered warnings intended for Iranian leaders that any attack by Tehran or its proxies resulting in the death of even one American service member will generate a military counterattack, U.S. officials said.

The potential for a significant military response to even an isolated event has fueled a broader internal debate among top Trump officials about whether the administration’s policy exceeds President Donald Trump’s specific goal of preventing Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, the officials said.

One such message about retaliation was delivered during a hastily arranged visit to Baghdad by Pompeo in May after officials detected a spike in intelligence indicating that Iran’s militia proxies might resume assaults on U.S. forces operating in proximity to them across Iraq. While such attacks were common during the Iraq War, Pompeo told Iraqi leaders in a message he knew would be relayed to Tehran that a single American casualty would prompt the United States to hit back. That specific warning has not been previously reported.
