TEHRAN – (PressTV) US forces and allies will soon be forced out of the Persian Gulf waters, where they have been seeking to establish a foothold for years, says Iran’s navy commander.

Published 2020-01-04 20:21:59 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Iran, Israel, Mena, Opinions, United-States

Lies, the Bethlehem Doctrine, and the Illegal Murder of Soleimani By Craig Murray In one of the series of blatant lies the USA has told to justify the assassination of Soleimani, Mike Pompeo said that Soleimani was killed because he was planning “Imminent attacks” on US citizens. It is a careful choice of word. Pompeo is specifically referring to the Bethlehem Doctrine of Pre-Emptive Self Defence. Developed by Daniel Bethlehem when Legal Adviser to first Netanyahu’s government and then Blair’s, the Bethlehem Doctrine is that states have a right of “pre-emptive self-defence” against “imminent” attack. That is something most people, and most… Continue ->

TEHRAN – Earlier today, the authorities of the Islamic Republic of Iran raised the Red Flag of Hussein over the Holy Dome of Jamkaran Mosque, in Qom. The raising of the red flag gives a precise signal – it indicates that a major war is to come or is even now underway. Reports so far indicate that this is the first time Iran  has unfurled this flag over the Holy Dome, a flag steeped in religious symbolism relating to Islamic eschatology, the end times, and the specter of total war of epic and religious proportions. This is not a flag… Continue ->

The U.S. drone strikes which killed Maj. General Suleimani (Commander of the Revolutionary National Guard and Quds Brigade) and several leading Iraqi military officials on January 3 has brought America as close to war with Iran as ever before. If one listens carefully, it is possible to hear neocon ideologues like Bill Kristol, Dick Cheney, John Bolton and other architects of the Project of the New American Century giggle insanely as the war which was meant to happen in 2007 looms ever closer. With this war threat, a larger confrontation with Russia and China is also brought closer to reality…. Continue ->
