US Navy shoots down Iranian drone in Strait of Hormuz – Trump

Amphibious assault ship USS Boxer took “defensive action” against an Iranian drone that approached to within 1,000 yards (900 meters), and ignored multiple calls to stand down, Trump said on Thursday.

The drone was immediately destroyed.

The drone was “threatening the safety of the ship and the ship’s crew,” the president said, adding that the US “reserves the right to defend our personnel, facilities and interests.”

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Jawad Zarif told reporters at the UN headquarters in New York he had “no information about losing a drone today,” and was waiting to hear from military authorities.

The Boxer sailed into the Persian Gulf earlier in the day, following the reports that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps had seized the Panamanian-flagged oil tanker MT Riah and its 12-man crew

Alert! Iran To Announce Enrichment (of Uranium) Hike

July 7, 2019

I guess that they still have a lot of money to burn.  I wonder where they got all that money?

Obama?

 

Iran To Announce Enrichment Hike

OAN Newsroom
UPDATED 4:44 PM PT – Sat July 6, 2019

Iran is set to raise it’s uranium enrichment levels. Reports Saturday reveal the rogue regime will increase its enrichment from 3.6% to 5%.

The hike will put the country above the limits set by the 2015 nuclear deal made with six major world powers. President Trump pulled out that deal, saying the country was showing no intention of abiding by the agreement.

Earlier this week, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani teased their latest move, threatening to violate the terms of the 2015 agreement.

“We will increase the cap to whatever level we deem is essential for us and to a level that we need, you must also know that if you do not fulfill all your obligations to us under the agreement and in the agreed time frame, then from July 7th the nuclear reactor will return to its previous activity,” Rouhani said.

Iranian state media said, the Ayotollah regime will officially make the announcement on Sunday.

Limit Breached! Iran has surpassed the Uranium enrichment limit

July 1, 2019

Now that they have breached the limit of 300 kg, What will they do with it?

Iran’s FM Zarif Confirms Enriched Uranium Limit Now Breached 

It what appears to be the first known violation of the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal (JCPOA), Iran’s stockpiles of enriched low-grade uranium have surpassed the limit of 300 kg, Iran’s semi-official Fars News is reporting.

Fars noted further that the International Atomic Energy Agency had confirmed the stockpile measurement on Monday, after in May it had already quadrupled its production of the material, the key component to make nuclear reactor fuel – and potentially nuclear weapons. Following the Fars report which had been based on an unnamed “informed source,” Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif was the first government official to confirm the country has exceeded the ceiling of 300kg, according to Iran’s ISNA.

Iran’s leaders warned in the past days and weeks that it was on track to surpass the agreed upon enriched uranium limit set by the JCPOA in reaction to President Trump’s reimposed sanctions, as well as the inability of remaining signatories to deliver on their terms of the deal, which the US unilaterally pulled out of in May 2018.

The Fars report announcing the breach of the nuclear deal limits specifically cited European partners as lagging behind commitments to shield Iran from Washington sanctions, despite the new Instrument in Support of Trade Exchange (INSTEX) going live just days ago.

“For Europeans, there is still time, but if they are asking for more time, it means that whether they are incompetent or they are unwilling to deliver on their commitments,” an official with the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) was cited as saying in the Fars report.

Zarif also called INSTEX – which was officially launched by Europe as a SWIFT alternative on Friday – a “preliminary step” of the European members of the nuclear deal which only “partially delivers” on their commitments.

Zarif said Monday while speaking at a public event: “We will never succumb to international pressure, and together with the people of the world, we will force them to only treat Iran with respect and never threaten an Iranian,” and urged European allies to resist US pressures and aggression.

Last week, President Trump had threatened Iran in a tweet with “great and overwhelming force” and in some areas “obliteration” should it pursue nuclear weapons development. Zarif had responded with his own tweet saying “misconceptions endanger peace” and reiterated that US sanctions amount are tantamount to “war.”


They Goaded Trump into War with Iran!

VIDEO: Democrat Leaders Pelosi and Schumer Caught on Camera Doing Victory Dance After They Thought They Goaded Trump into War with Iran!

The leaders of the Democrat Party could not care less about 150 Iranian lives.  They couldn’t care even less about the fate of our country.

Everything, everyday to them, is about power and how to steal it and keep it.

Rather than attempting to make America a better place or keeping America great, Democrat leaders are all about power.  On Friday before President Trump decided not to drop bombs on Iran for knocking down a US drone, the President met with Congressional leaders in the White House to discuss the situation.

After the meeting, Democrat Senate leader Chuck Schumer from New York and Democrat Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, could be seen cheering outside the White House.  As they approached their cars, Schumer raised his hands in victory and Pelosi was smiling and cheering on Schumer.

The Democrat leaders clearly wanted President Trump to make a wrong move so they could criticize him endlessly for getting America into another bloody war.  They don’t care about protecting the US, standing for justice or protecting innocent lives.

It is clear that the Democrats are not about protection of human lives or what is best for the USA.  These leaders seek power. What wicked people.

Hat tip D. Manny

UPDATE: The liberal media says Schumer was dancing because he was overjoyed his mother had been released from hospital.
That’s what Schumer says.
OK.

Iran Military Shooting Down US Drone – Pentagon released video

June 21, 2019

What is the protocol if there was a drone off the US coast?

Is it possible that the General that shot the drone down was TRYING to provoke an incident.

almasdarnews.com posted that there was a CIA operation that they discovered.  Could there have been other spy’s?

 

 

Pentagon Releases Video of Iran Military Shooting Down US Drone

Pentagon has released a video on June 20 showing a U.S. Navy drone falling into the water after it was shot Iran in what has been described as an “unprovoked attack.”

In the footage, a trail of smoke could be seen as the unmanned U.S. Navy RQ-4 fell into “international waters” after it was brought down by an Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps surface-to-air missile fired from a location in the vicinity of Goruk, Iran, according to Lt. Gen. Joseph Guastella, Commander of U.S. Air Forces Central Command. Both Iran and the United States confirmed that the shooting took place on June 19.

Iran defended its actions, saying that the drone was on a spy mission over its territory, but the Pentagon countered that the aircraft was in international airspace.

“This was an unprovoked attack on a U.S. surveillance asset that had not violated Iranian airspace at any time during its mission,” Guastella said in a statement. “This attack is an attempt to disrupt our ability to monitor the area following recent threats to international shipping and free flow of commerce.”

Guastella added that at the time the aircraft was “operating at high-altitude approximately 34 kilometers [about 21.1 miles] from the nearest point of land on the Iranian coast.”

About 15 hours the aircraft was shot down, President Donald Trump issued a statement saying, “Iran made a very big mistake!”

Trump later reiterated his comments to reporters at the White House during a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on June 20, saying “This drone was in international waters, clearly. We have it all documented scientifically not just words. And they made a very bad mistake.”

“I would imagine it was a general or somebody that made a mistake in shooting that drone down. I have a feeling it was a mistake made by somebody that shouldn’t have been doing what they did,” he added.

He warned that the United States “will not stand for it,” but also noted no American was hurt and characterized the incident as “a new wrinkle, a new fly in the ointment.”

“I find it hard to believe it was intentional if you want to know the truth,” he said. “I think that it could have been somebody who was loose and stupid who did it.”

It’s not clear if the downing of the drone would prompt military repercussions from the United States. Both Trump and Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei previously said they don’t want war.

—-me- is it possible that Ali Khamenei didn’t know?

This incident follows the recent tension between the two countries after the United States accused Iran of the June 13 attacks of a pair of oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. The Trump administration has presented video evidence that seemingly implicates Tehran in the attacks, while Iran has denied having any role.

Moreover, the Iranian regime announced on June 17 that it would breach an internationally agreed limit on its stock of low-enriched uranium after 10 days. The Islamic regime added that it would only remain in the nuclear deal if its European signatories would step in to help the regime to circumvent the tight economic sanctions.

Was the CIA caught in a spy network in Iran ? And what was their mission ?

June 21, 2019

How convenient that a CIA spy network is “caught” by Iran.  I would question “caught”.  Maybe OUTED?

 

 

Iran claims they busted CIA-run spy network

Iran has dismantled a CIA-run “large US cyber-espionage” network, the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) reported, citing the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, Ali Shamkhani.

“Given the cooperation between the Islamic Republic of Iran and other countries in creating an ‘international organisation to counter American espionage’, we provided our partners with information that led to the disclosure and dismantling of a network of CIA officers, as well as detention and punishment of several spies in different countries”, the senior official said.

Shamkhani added that since some aspects of the case have already been disclosed by the CIA itself, the Ministry of Intelligence can also publish the documents.

The development comes a few days after Iran urged the United States to cease “warmongering” and false flag operations in the region after Washington accused Tehran of being behind attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.

The Iranian side has vehemently denied the allegations and called on the US to stop the “blame game”.

“Suspicious acts in the Gulf of Oman against oil tankers… seem to be supplementary to the [US] economic sanctions as the Americans went nowhere with the sanctions, [also] especially given America’s historical record in the area [of false flag ops]”, Speaker of the Iranian Parliament Ali Larijani said over the weekend.

 

On 13 June, two oil tankers, the Panama-registered Kokuka Courageous, operated by Japan’s Kokuka Sangyo Co, and Marshall Islands-flagged Front Altair, owned by Norway’s Frontline, were hit by explosions in the Gulf of Oman, near the Strait of Hormuz.

Shortly after the incident, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Tehran of orchestrating the attacks, with the US CENTCOM releasing a video claiming to show Iranian sailors removing an unexploded mine from the hull of one of the tankers as “proof” of Tehran being the culprit.

The footage has, however, been questioned by US allies and the Kokuka Courageous tanker’s operator, who said that it was not enough to prove Washington right.

Tensions have been simmering in the Gulf region since the US withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal in May 2018, but were exacerbated last month after the Pentagon deployed an aircraft carrier strike group and a bomber task force to the Middle East to send a “clear and unmistakable” message to Iran that any attack on American interests or those of its allies would be met with “unrelenting force”.
