The U. Last year a Powerpoint slide emerged and caused quite a stir in the Special Forces community. The slide shows a plan for an extremely watered-down form of the Special Forces Qualification Course. However this slide does not show an abbreviated training plan that the Special Warfare Center intends to implement, but something more chilling. She asked him what he would do to make America a better country. Interestingly, this younger Trump was much more thoughtful and circumspect than the man who is currently president.

When watching the interview it is clear that he thinks about what he wants to say before he says it. I believe we should have done it. Indeed, the Carter administration had attempted to rescue American hostages held inside Iran. Air Force secretly flying to an empty expanse of desert to take soil samples and bury infrared lights to establish a clandestine airfield at what would become a staging ground for the rescue mission called Desert One. Even after Eagle Claw failed, almost certainly unknown to Donald Trump at the time, Operation Honey Badger was already underway, which was a second planned mission to rescue the hostages.

But after the failure at Desert One, the hostages were moved and security around them increased. The element of surprise had been lost and the second effort was never authorized by the White House. After talking about Iran, Trump was then asked if he would like to become president one day. One proper president could turn this country around. I firmly believe that. President Trump comes from a business background and understands that profit can be made by doing business that others have been unwilling to do.
Now in the Oval Office, he likely sees unfinished business in places like Iran as something that he can resolve where other presidents failed, which would be a feather in his hat if he can pull it off. The Iran Deal had served to curb Iranian nuclear development but had inflamed the governments of Israel and Saudi Arabia. In May of , the Trump administration officially withdrew from the agreement and imposed harsher sanctions on Iran. Other chess pieces have been moved by the Trump administration that make the likelihood of war with Iran much more probable than it was just a few years ago.
For instance, the Trump administration has stated that U. National Security Advisor John Bolton has long been an advocate of regime change in Iran and has recently been having meetings in the country of Georgia, in part to try to secure the use of an airfield there for American air power to launch from in the event of a war with Iran.
Secretary of Defense James Mattis, seen as an impediment to regime change in Iran by many, was pushed out of the administration over a proposed military withdrawal from Syria, one that in retrospect appears to be a pump fake more than anything as the White House quickly reversed course. Was the proposed shift in policy really just a provocation to remove a troublesome Secretary of Defense?
Behind the scenes, other covert programs continue. When asked if the United States had any actual human intelligence assets in North Korea, he replied that he highly doubted it, but then again, if you look at all the failed North Korean missile launches you have to wonder. The publication of such information in major newspapers may very well represent a controlled leak of false or half-true information as a deception campaign to make the Iranians wonder what is really going on and doubt their own military capabilities.
The Saudi government agreed to match whatever support America was offering, with the total yearly cost of the operation reaching upwards of a billion dollars at one point. This relationship continues to this day with the Saudi intel service not just matching, but surpassing, whatever amount of money the CIA pumps into anti-Iranian activities.
These operations are said to be funded to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars per year. JSOC is known to be more aggressive and less risk-averse than the CIA, but more often than not the intel service will clear the military to go forward with their plans. MEK is no longer the only proxy force operating in Iran, with an apparent spin-off of the now-defunct Jundallah group conducting attacks against the Iranian military.
They call themselves Jaish ul-Adl, the Army of Justice. It is unlikely that the United States would sponsor this group, but the Iranians have very publicly accused Saudi Arabia of being their puppet master. In , Jaish ul-Adl killed nine Iranian border guards and, in , launched a suicide attack against the Islamic Revolutionary Guard, which killed Meanwhile, President Trump has positioned himself as a staunch ally of Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu in particular, while also making threatening gestures on social media toward Iran.
It is worth noting, in this regard, that at the outset of Bush's second term, former Vice President Dick Cheney hinted, in no uncertain terms, that Iran was "right at the top of the list" of the "rogue enemies" of America, and that Israel would, so to speak, "be doing the bombing for us", without US military involvement and without us putting pressure on them "to do it" See Michel Chossudovsky, Planned US-Israeli Attack on Iran , Global Research, May 1, : According to Cheney:.
Given the fact that Iran has a stated policy that their objective is the destruction of Israel, the Israelis might well decide to act first, and let the rest of the world worry about cleaning up the diplomatic mess afterwards," Dick Cheney, quoted from an MSNBC Interview, January And there the issue is certainly not tyranny; it's nuclear weapons. And the vice president today in a kind of a strange parallel statement to this declaration of freedom hinted that the Israelis may do it and in fact used language which sounds like a justification or even an encouragement for the Israelis to do it.
Officials in the Defense Department, under Bush and Obama, have been working assiduously with their Israeli military and intelligence counterparts, carefully identifying targets inside Iran. In practical military terms, any action by Israel would have to be planned and coordinated at the highest levels of the US led coalition. Global Research, January 11, What this means is that Washington ultimately calls the shots. In other words, Israel cannot launch a war against Iran without Washington's consent.
Hence the importance of the so-called "Green Light" legislation in the US Congress sponsored by the Republican party under House Resolution , which explicitly supports an Israeli attack on Iran:. We need to show our support for Israel. We need to quit playing games with this critical ally in such a difficult area. It constitutes a rubber stamp to a US sponsored war on Iran which uses Israel as a convenient military launch pad. It also serves as a justification to wage war with a view to defending Israel. Broadly speaking, Israelis would be the victims of the machinations of both Washington and their own government.
It is, in this regard, absolutely crucial that Israelis forcefully oppose any action by the Netanyahu government to attack Iran. Military planning and decision making at a country level by individual allies of US-NATO as well as "partner nations" is integrated into a global military design including the weaponization of space. Confirmed by military documents as well as official statements, both the US and Israel contemplate the use of nuclear weapons directed against Iran.
In , U. This announcement was made after the conduct of military simulations pertaining to a US led nuclear attack against a fictional country. The Obama administration has also intimated that it would use nukes in the case of an Iranian response to an Israeli attack on Iran. Several have been built beneath at least 70ft of concrete and rock. However, the nuclear-tipped bunker-busters would be used only if a conventional attack was ruled out and if the United States declined to intervene, senior sources said.
Through a propaganda campaign which has enlisted the support of "authoritative" nuclear scientists, mini-nukes are upheld as an instrument of peace, namely a means to combating "Islamic terrorism" and instating Western style "democracy" in Iran. The low-yield nukes have been cleared for "battlefield use".

They are slated to be used against Iran and Syria in the next stage of America's "war on Terrorism" alongside conventional weapons. Potential enemies realize this, thus they do not consider the threat of nuclear retaliation to be credible.

However, low-yield nuclear weapons are less destructive, thus might conceivably be used. That would make them more effective as a deterrent.
The preferred nuclear weapon to be used against Iran are tactical nuclear weapons Made in America , namely bunker buster bombs with nuclear warheads e. It can be delivered in much same way as the conventional bunker buster bomb. While the US does not contemplate the use of strategic thermonuclear weapons against Iran, Israel's nuclear arsenal is largely composed of thermonuclear bombs which are deployed and could be used in a war with Iran. There were unconfirmed reports that it had been used in Iraq.
Preparing to Bomb Iran? ABC News, October 9, The truth of the matter is that the MOAB, given its explosive capacity, would result in extremely large civilian casualties. This procurement is directly linked to war preparations in relation to Iran. The MOP is described as "a powerful new bomb aimed squarely at the underground nuclear facilities of Iran and North Korea. The process of US military decision making in relation to Iran is supported by Star Wars, the militarization of outer space and the revolution in communications and information systems.
Given the advances in military technology and the development of new weapons systems, an attack on Iran could be significantly different in terms of the mix of weapons systems, when compared to the March Blitzkrieg launched against Iraq. The Iran operation is slated to use the most advanced weapons systems in support of its aerial attacks. In all likelihood, new weapons systems will be tested. This formulation is tantamount to a global war of conquest by a single imperial superpower. The latter consists in developing and perfecting a state of the art global killing machine based on an arsenal of sophisticated new weaponry, which would eventually replace the existing paradigms.
The breakpoint will come when a preponderance of new weapons systems begins to enter service, perhaps when, for example, unmanned aerial vehicles begin to be as numerous as manned aircraft. In this regard, the Pentagon should be very wary of making large investments in new programs — tanks, planes, aircraft carriers, for example — that would commit U.

Ibid, emphasis added. The war on Iran could indeed mark this crucial breakpoint, with new space-based weapons systems being applied with a view to disabling an enemy which has significant conventional military capabilities including more than half a million ground forces. Electromagnetic Weapons. Electromagnetic weapons could be used to destabilize Iran's communications systems, disable electric power generation, undermine and destabilize command and control, government infrastructure, transportation, energy, etc.
