....Limpet Mine Attack.....
U.S. Central Command Public Affairs ^ | 6/13/2019 10:20:00 PM | Capt. Bill Urban

...twenty-one sailors from the M/T Kokuka Courageous who had abandoned their ship after discovering a probable unexploded limpet mine on their hull...

At 4:10 p.m. local time an IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) Gashti Class patrol boat approached the M/T Kokuka Courageous and was observed and recorded removing the unexploded limpet mine from the M/T Kokuka Courageous (video attached).

The United States has no interest in engaging in a new conflict in the Middle East. However, we will defend our interests.

Uh... so you are saying that the Elite Leftists/Globalists in Israel are somehow too moral to instigate a false flag because they are Jewish?

That's insane.

And to point out your flawed logic isn't Nazism, it's common sense.

I fully believe everything the Lord says about Israel... and He rebukes, reprimands and chastises His Chosen people for their sins and immorality and unbelief in nearly every page of the Bible.

We should do the same.

Also remember that there was always ONLY a remnant of Jews who were saved, or found righteous before God under the Old Covenant. Always only a remnant were saved. This was the Pharisees' mistake: they believed simply by being born of Jewish blood, they would go to Heaven, or would be reconciled to God. This is a complete falsehood.

King Saul/Manasseh/King Ahab are just a few ancient Jews who were not reconciled to God in the afterlife, i.e. they died in their sins. Or how about the majority of Jews in Elijah's day who succumbed to perverted Baal worship in the pagan Temples? Alienated from God. Or those who were struck down by God in the desert when they did more perverse worship of the Golden Calf while Moses was getting the Ten Commandments? These Jews died alienated from God. I.e. they went to eternal hellfire.

Jesus overturned the moneychangers tables in the Temple because these Jews were "making merchandise off God's people" by selling inferior sacrificial animals and birds necessary for worship.

We are idiots if we blanket whitewash our friends in Israel as all being of outstanding morals simply because they were born Jewish -- when the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob won't.

About all men, we are to be "wise as serpents, but meek as doves"... including Jews. And I'm sure this is why Christians are called to "pray for the peace of Jerusalem" in the NT.

Other thread has the loonies out claiming we staged the whole deal and even staged the “photo op”....just being on FR doesn’t insure one’s stability or mental sanity.

Considering what we are learning about our FBI, DOJ, CIA, State Department, etc...I don’t think it loony to posit certain Americans might have staged an attack in an attempt to get Trump to do something that will later come back to bite him on the a$$.

Or, if not staged by Deep State, staged by foreign actors aiding and abetting Deep State.

Trust but verify.

Bigly.

Dear trebb... excuse me? Where were you when FReepers figured out it was Obama State Department employees who staged Charlottesville?

In other words, what’s wrong with you that you don’t understand Elite/Deep State deception?

Are you purposely trying to dumb down the discussion on FR by namecalling?

False flags are a military tactic as old as Sun Tzu... and the Bible...

Or is it somehow offensive to you to consider that evil men actually might conspire in secret in order to gain power?

Incredible article here, from, believe it or not, CNN!

However, they preface it by stating the views of the author do not necessarily reflect the opinions of CNN, or something like that.

IMO, their tolerance for such a piece may well have to do with the fact that, among their viewers, are many Jewish liberals, who, one would at least think, not be very happy about the Iran deal that Obama made.

Why did Obama praise Putin?

By Frida Ghitis
July 15, 2015

(CNN)One of the more intriguing comments we heard in the aftermath of the deal with Iran came when President Barack Obama offered praise and recognition for Russian President Vladimir Putin, the man who leads a country described only a few days ago by the next U.S. military chief as the “greatest global threat” to the United States.

-snip-

It’s worth noting that Iran and Russia support Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian dictator who, with good reason, rejoiced at the news of the deal.

He called it a “great victory” — and it will fill the coffers of his main benefactor, the Iranian regime.

Beyond that, Putin may be expecting to see a new international order, hoping that Obama will agree to a throwback to the days of “spheres of influence,” in which the United States gives latitude so certain countries can exercise influence in certain regions.

Under that geopolitical structure, Russia would be tacitly allowed by the United States to be the dominant power in its neighborhood including, say, Ukraine, and other former Soviet Republic states, while Iran would call the shots in its part of the world, much as it tries to do with some success now in Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, Yemen and elsewhere.

Obama has rejected suggestions that he has such a plan in mind. And I doubt that it is the cynical objective behind the nuclear deal. But the ultimate effect could take us some steps in that direction.

Incidentally, the Iran deal gives new influence to Russia in enforcing the nuclear agreement. ...”

Anything.mil is the US military
Anything.gov is a US fed or state government website

mo.gov = Missouri State Government

The general public cannot go out and get a .mil or .gov domain extension. They are for official use only

I only found out recently that cargo ships and tankers carry no small arms and have basically no security. I find that ridiculous.

The oil tanker doesn’t appear to e moving. Do these ships ride at anchor for a while before entering the Strait of Hormuz?

Wait, are you saying that we should shut down critical thinking about a military video release just because we have no means of properly vetting it?

So we should just blindly believe what the Government is telling us, “just because”?

Are you insane?

Or are you someone who doesn't believe modern militaries are capable of using false flags or staged events as a tactic? I.e. you don't believe people are capable of conspiring to stage a hoaxed event in order to gain power?

OK, who would benefit form the false flag operation? Are you saying the US did it, The Russians, Israelis? Was it some James Bondian act? Did "odd job" do it?

Ok, you are claiming false flag SO PUT YOUR THEORY OUT THERE.

I was on the War Room first hour yesterday talking about the tanker attacks.
WAR ROOM (1ST HOUR) THU - 6/13/19 • MATT BRACKEN - OIL TANKER ATTACKS NEWS & ANALYSIS • INFOWARS
(I come in talking about the tanker attacks at 15 minute in. And I’m correct, it wasn’t a torpedo attack as first reported, it was a limpet mine attack.)
