Israeli Military Prepares For “Possible”(Read as very likely) Trump Preemptive Attack On Iran

What a shock. Hey, they don’t call it the “ForeverWar” for nothing though.

 Axios reports that Israel is preparing for the possibility that Trump will launch a preemptive attack on Iran.

Axios’ Barak Ravid reports from Tel Aviv that “The Israel Defense Forces have in recent weeks been instructed to prepare for the possibility that the U.S. will conduct a military strike against Iran before President Trump leaves office, senior Israeli officials tell me.”

While not citing specific intelligence, Ravid says Israeli military and intelligence leaders are anticipating “a very sensitive period” just ahead of the inauguration and Trump’s exiting the White House.

According to the report:

The IDF’s preparedness measures relate to possible Iranian retaliation against Israel directly or through Iranian proxies in Syria, Gaza and Lebanon, the Israeli officials said.

Meanwhile, are we already witnessing the first ‘provocation’ which is to be blamed on Iran as pretext? The oil tanker sure does seem to be so.

Earlier this month The New York Times reported that President Trump had to be talked out of preemptive strikes on Iran by his own top advisers, who warned it could easily spiral into a major war in only the last weeks of his presidency.

That report included the following mention that not all “options” may have been placed off the table at that time:

After Mr. Pompeo and General Milley described the potential risks of military escalation, officials left the meeting believing a missile attack inside Iran was off the table, according to administration officials with knowledge of the meeting.

Mr. Trump might still be looking at ways to strike Iranian assets and allies, including militias in Iraq, officials said. A smaller group of national security aides had met late Wednesday to discuss Iran, the day before the meeting with the president.

The other recent interesting development includes last Sunday’s historic first of a meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, where a top issue under discussion was mutual cooperation against Iran.

  1. The headline should read: “Israel prepares to illegally attack Iran using it’s most important vassal state and slave army (i.e. the United States of America)”

    Let’s see, who was it that attacked the US on 9/11??? Saudi Arabia and Israel.
    Who does the US wage war on?? Iraq, Afghanistan and now Iran.
    Who are the US’ #1 “allies” in the GWOT (Global War OF Terror)??? Saudi Arabia & Israel

    Israel gets to spy on its vassal state, and it’s technically not treason, because the US is subservient and a base of operations for their masters and an economic zone, rather than a functional country. Functional countries have borders and pursue policies for the benefit of their people. The US government does NONE of those things.

  2. Well, before we get ready to listen to another rousing chorus of “Onward Christian Soldiers!” from the neocons, let’s await a named source being attached to these accounts.

    The press has peddled one monstrous lie after another in the last four years based on bullshit anonymous sources. “Sources say,” “experts say,” “official in XYZ position.”

    The press has lost all credibility in the last four years. They’re nothing more or less than a bunch of dope-addled college students, sitting around the night before their final exam, earnestly believing that they’re going to become smarter by drinking their bong water before going off to their test. These fevered propaganda pieces are what result from their JournoList collusion at group confabulation.

    • Lol yeah exactly. The people doing the “Onward Christian Soldiers!” bit are the same ones hard at work to remove every last vestige of Christianity from American society (removing prayer from schools, crosses from public spaces) and importing non-Christians en masse into the US (hey, it’s good for the GDP/Dow Jones, etc).
      Don’t underestimate the media, though. People are lemmings, and WILL follow and listen to what they are told. The trick is that they control both “sides” of the paradigm. The left and right are like professional wrestling opponents. It’s mostly scripted, and they all pal around off camera. They’re paid by and serve the exact same people. Notice how despite the heated rhetoric and supposed hate of Dems vs Repubs, both parties seem to magically come together on the issue of Israel, wars for Israel, Saudi Arabia, and now even LGBTQ “issues” (e.g. guaranteeing them access to young children, making it illegal to fire them for stealing money from the employer – see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bostock_v._Clayton_County).

    • “let’s await a named source being attached to these accounts.“

      I came here to say what you said. This is a prima facie ridiculous story: Why would Trump keep us out of war for 3.95 years of his first term and then plunge us into war in the waning weeks? The whole idea is risible, and anybody who still believes “anonymous Trump administration sources” needs a bridge sold to them very badly.

      • I agree with you on one hand, but on the other hand I could see Trump feeling it was his duty to do something to stop the obama nuke deal from going back into place .i.e letting iran continue on their path to build nukes and sponsor terrorism in the area.

        anything is possible in these days.

        • If he wanted to shaft Obama’s Iran deal, all he’d have to do is declassify everything surrounding the deal – and a bunch of other things that Obama left behind.

          Trump is holding cards that he seems loathe to play, but were I in his shoes, I’d be slapping down declassification orders and exposing what Obama did. It would not be something that Biden, should he get in, could reverse. Once the cats are out of the bag, they cannot be put back in.

          • “Trump is holding cards that he seems loathe to play, but were I in his shoes, I’d be slapping down declassification orders and exposing what Obama did.”

            If I were Trump, I’d start demanding documents on my desk and just taking pictures of them and putting them on Twitter. If they didn’t wind up on my desk, I’d go to the Hoover Building and Foggy Bottom and get them.

          • Trump doesn’t hold any cards, my friend.
            What kind of system do you think you live in? An actual democracy??? No rulers of any system will allow themselves to be removed/swapped out by elections. The opinions of the sheep (i.e. subjects/citizens) do not matter. Trump, like all POTUSs before him and after him, are puppets. Think of it like professional wrestling.
            Him and Biden, GOP and Dems are on the same team. They are owned by the same people. What they “disagree” about is just for the cameras. Once you understand this, everything makes sense. The Trump/GOP fools/fooled its voters with promises of secure borders, 2nd Amendment lip service, and the Dems did likewise with promises of universal healthcare, workers’ rights, etc. In the end, NONE of things get done – but not because the government is incompetent or ineffective. The government accomplishes what it WANTS to do, and that is $$$$$, weapons and wars for Israeli interests, trillions of $$$$$$ for huge corporations whose owners are eligible for Israeli citizenship (unless they have it already), and more immigration from the 3rd World, all of it non-white of course.
            Epstein didn’t pal around with only Dems nor only Republicans. And he didn’t act alone. His partner Ghislaine Maxwell is the daughter of Robert Maxwell (go look up his actual birth name) who was one of the founders of Israel and Mossad. And Epstein inherited his operation from Les Wexner, also an Israeli.
            Are you starting to see the picture?
            If you think I am lying or exaggerating, go look up what I said, and please correct me if I am wrong.

  3. Presuming that he does not get a second term, it would be a movie-like scenario if he had such a strike done in the last hour of his presidency and without Biden knowing in advance.

  4. Given the vibes I’m getting off the current set of brass, I seriously doubt that the military would actually follow any orders from Trump in this scenario, unless the Iranians were doing something that made action mandatory.

    Hell, he can’t even get the slimy bastards to conduct drawdowns, or tell the truth about troop levels.

      • Sadly, you are absolutely correct. Think about WHY 99% of DC wants war with Iran, though. If it was purely for arbitrary bloodlust, then it would make as much (and in fact more) sense that they would be demanding war with Saudi Arabia (for 9/11) and/or Israel (for the USS Liberty, spying such as Jonathan Pollard), but strangely they do not, and are insistent that those 2 countries are our most important allies.
        The question to ask is, as the Roman saying goes, Qui buono??
        Who benefits?? Not the US people, that’s for damn sure. A certain other people, yes, not American people, though.

  5. Where does one draw the line between the Israeli military and that of the US, or for Israel and the US government, media, judiciary, financial system and intelligence apparatus for that matter? They are both tentacles of the same creature.
    This becomes clearer by the day.
