US Begins Huge Military Maneuvers Aimed at Iran
Battle-ready troops on standby as tensions rise following dubious assassination plot

The United States will this week commence huge military maneuvers aimed at Iran, with a massive air fleet patrolling middle eastern skies ready to land at any time, in response to Irans involvement in an alleged assassination plot that experts have labeled dubious, amidst fears that US and Israeli targets could be hit by attacks.

As we reported last week, during US Defense Secretary Leon Panettas October 3 Tel Aviv visit, Israeli hawks attempted to persuade Panetta to give the green light for a military strike on Iran. Within ten days, details of an alleged assassination plot against a Saudi ambassador emerged and the foiled attack was blamed on Iran. Innumerable experts immediately voiced their doubts about the authenticity of the plot, with 21-year CIA veteran Robert Baer labeling the story a truly awful Hollywood script.
The US military will respond this week with a series of significant military maneuvers designed to threaten Iran, including, an American air fleet in Middle East skies ready to land at any moment for any contingency, reports DebkaFile.
The United States launches a large-scale exercise over the Middle East deploying 41 giant transports of the 22nds Airlift Squadron Monday Oct. 17, states the report, adding that the aircraft will be packed with fully equipped, battle ready troops.
A further seven warships from the Stennis Battle Group will also provide ground troops with combat support and strike land and sea targets.
The Israeli, Egyptian and Saudi armies have also been placed on maximum preparedness, echoing reports that U.S. troops being sent to the region have also been put on full alert.
The maneuvers are also linked to the scheduled release of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit by Hamas on Tuesday, an event that US intelligence officials fear could set off a chain of attacks in the region against US and Israeli targets. Should embassies be targeted, US troops will be in place to react swiftly.
Geopolitical experts have been consistent in their warnings that Israel was preparing to strike Iran this fall.
Back in July, CIA veteran Baer told KPFK Los Angeles that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was planning an attack on Iran in September to coincide with the Palestine bid for UN membership.
Whether the maneuvers are merely designed to be an act of belligerence against Iran or represent preparations for an actual military strike in support of Israel remains to be seen, but as Gulf News reporter Patrick Seale pointed out Friday, the window of opportunity for an attack on Iran is closing.
Some western military experts have been quoted as saying that the window of opportunity for an Israeli air attack on Iran will close within two months, since the onset of winter would make such an assault more difficult, writes Seale, adding that the Israelis eagerness to launch the attack has caused considerable alarm in Washington and in a number of European capitals.
Both Republican and Democratic US lawmakers have issued strong statements against Iran in recent days, with several all but calling for war. Last week, New York Republican Peter King called on the Obama administration to put troops on standby, labeling the alleged Iranian assassination plot an act of war. On Sunday, Democrat Dianne Feinstein, the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, warned that the US and Iran were on a collision course.

    You can be sure they are making money with US Defense Secretary Leon Panettas who is not understandable of military or CIA life and should not have been in that position. Disgusting.

    I’M an American victim of the powerful Zionist. I was raped persecuted and forced to pay my rapist and his Zionist Convert Organization which are Israeli-Russians-American citizenship holder.

    My suffering as an American was horrible pain. I’M from a well know United States Armed Forces family serving this Nation since the civil war. My near death from the Zionist racist terrorist persecutors consisted of me being on life support for three months and many surgeries to live. I had to learn to walk again. I was forced to watch my child who has MS/Cerebral Palsy be subjected to interrogations humiliation on his fathers race Iranian/Shia Muslim.

    It was horrible for an American to watch there minor with shacking hands be forced to see them degrade him make fun of his shaking degrading him about his race. Then informing him his Mother was raped by the man sitting across from him then him-being able to interrogate him. Yes for three days over the amount of hours all owed by Federal Discovery laws.

    I my self was forced over 40 hours to be interrogated about race religion. My United States Passport, banks life insurance they took from me. So they could investigated if I had money for them to steal from me since the commit corruption with the Judicial system to win. They do that by blocking all civil rights of due process even avoiding the sex conviction. This is how they do this in the court papers leaving you with nothing no proof so the racist Zionist Judges rules against you close to two hundred thousands and against your child a minor.

    The corrupted Zionist system made the case for an Israeli connected to Zionist Racist Senator Harry Reid and Racist Zionist Shelley Berkley all traitors to The United States.

    They do not serve the Red White and Blue they use it for another country. They have made Americans tax donkey slaves while we suffer so in this Nation now.

    Well unless the Pentagon saves the United States takes over the corrupted traitor politicians Senators and Congress re-Organizes and returns the Constitution and or laws we are a lost Nation enslaved to bigots who will
    work you to death for a racist view Zionism not America The Great.

    Someone please save my country I love it please before it is gone. Thank You~

    To finish they persecuted my father an United States Armed Forces Vet who died in the Muskogee Oklahoma VA while they persecuted him and he suffered so the way his daughter and grandchild were going threw. The Zionist loved this torture. THANK YOU-
