  • Iran, US Exchange Messages Ahead of Biden's Military Response

    01/31/2024 6:14:40 AM PST · by nuconvert · 39 replies
    Iranian sources to @AJArabic: “The US sent more than one message to Tehran over the past two days via third parties. Washington's messages said that it did not want an open war and warned that expanding the war would be met with the US action. Tehran rejected Washington's threats and said targeting its territory is a red line, and crossing the line would be met with an appropriate response. Tehran's message said that it does not want a war with Washington either, but it will forcefully confront any American adventure.”
  • US ‘committed’ to deal releasing $6 billion, Iran claims (Obama no.2?)

    Tehran is moving closer to accessing frozen funds, according to Iranian and Qatari readouts of a call between the nations’ foreign ministers. The Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs claimed on Friday that it has Qatari assurances of Washington’s “commitment” to allowing it to use $6 billion in frozen funds, which the Biden administration released to Qatari banks. Readouts from Tehran and Doha of a phone call between Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian and Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al Thani—who serves as both Qatar’s foreign minister and prime minister—emphasized different things. But they agreed in principle that the deal...
  • J.D. Vance says Ukraine will have to ‘cede some territory’

    12/11/2023 4:51:35 PM PST · by delta7 · 279 replies ^ | 10 Dec23 | Ramsey Touchberry
    Sen. J.D. Vance said Sunday that U.S. officials should accept the notion that Ukraine is likely to “cede some territory” in its fight against unprovoked Russian aggression. The Ohio Republican’s remarks come as Congress weighs more aid for Ukraine, with Democrats calling for additional assistance with few if any strings attached and Republicans trying to link aid to more funding to secure the southern U.S. border. “What’s in America’s best interest is to accept Ukraine is going to have to cede some territory to the Russians and we need to bring this war to a close,” Mr. Vance, who opposes...

    Sen. J.D. Vance (R-Ohio) said Sunday that the United States needs to accept that Ukraine will likely need to “cede some territory” to Russia to end the fighting.Vance told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” that he is opposed to sending more aid to Ukraine because he does not believe the country will ever be able to overpower Russia. He questioned why sending billions in aid to Ukraine is going to help the country at this point in its war against Russia since previous aid has yet to end the war.“What’s in America’s best interest is to accept...
  • Macgregor: We need to protect Israel from itself. Tell them: 'No'

    Twitter/X ^ | Oct 31 | Douglas Macgregor
    @DougAMacgregor You have a understandable and justified interest from Israel to Destroy Hamas. However, I think the current plan will provoke an enormous reaction from the Muslim world. Pretty much everyone from Indonesia to Morocco is going to be extremely upset and I think we will see the front against Israel in the region coalesce into a real Military alliance against Israel. We need to protect Israel from itself. The problem is, it takes a President who has the authority and strength to tell the Israeli Government no, you can not go into Gaza and execute the plans you have.

    @DougAMacgregor There is no one in Washington currently interested dialing anything back in Israel. No one is saying emotions are running hot, this is not good time to make these decisions or we need to look at the consequences. What I see is an enraged American population and probably European populations when they are drawn into this. There are societies who have been penetrated by the same terrorist organizations and elements who will fight us because we are supporting Israel. This doesn't mean we should abandon Israel, but we still have an obligation to protect America first. We are not...

    @RepThomasMassie This week the House will vote on $14.5 billion foreign aid package for Israel, in addition to the $3.8 billion that already passed. I will be a NO vote. Less than 1/3 of the 49,000 people who responded to my poll today support this additional funding. We simply can’t afford it.

    Tech billionaire Elon Musk warned of the possibility of World War III, saying a third global war could spark from either the conflict between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip or Russia's continuing assault on Ukraine. "We need to figure out peace in Ukraine, and I think we need to restore normal relations with Russia," Musk said Monday during a talk on his social media platform X. "World War III is a civilizational risk that we may not recover from," he said, "so we need to prioritize avoiding World War III; that's what actually matters. And not what happened...
  • Tucker Carlson and Pro-Putin Guest Suggest Israel Is Committing ‘War Crimes’ and Mock ‘Moral Victories’

    Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson and his guest, retired Army Col. Douglas Macgregor, scoffed at the idea that the United States was scoring “moral victories” through its assistance of Israel and suggested that the world’s only Jewish-majority state was committing “war crimes” by bombing Gaza during an episode of the former’s show released on Monday. After a conversation during which the two commentators argued that wiping out Hamas was an unrealistic goal, they said that the U.S. was hurtling toward war with Iran and bizarrely submitted that Turkey and Russia would be eager to join such a conflict on...

    The White House wants Israel to delay its ground operation in the Gaza Strip to allow more time for negotiations to release the hostages held by terrorists there and for aid to enter the Palestinian enclave, several unnamed US officials told The New York Times. Officials said that the US is not asking Israel to abort the ground invasion but is advising it to wait, and that Washington still fully supports Israel’s aim to destroy Hamas in the wake of the deadly onslaught. Nonetheless, four senior Israeli defense officials told the Times the ground invasion has been repeatedly put off...

    Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy announced this week that he opposes Israel’s invasion of Gaza and removal of Hamas, following a massacre by the terror group that left thousands of Israeli civilians killed and scores of Israelis and Americans still held hostage. “From a U.S. perspective, from an Israel perspective, how is this actually going to achieve a good result?” Ramaswamy told Tucker Carlson in an interview posted Wednesday night on X (formerly Twitter) of Israel’s operation against Hamas currently underway: And my concern right now, and as we’re having this conversation, it appears imminent that Israel is going to...

    Washington Examiner ^ | October 10, 2023
    As Israel begins its necessary war against Hamas, the U.S. must do all it can diplomatically and with military and intelligence support to ensure it succeeds. Unfortunately, although Joe Biden has offered clear rhetorical support for Israel since the weekend and condemned Hamas's multipronged atrocities, his record dealing with the world's worst terrorist regime, Iran, has been weak, dishonest, and shameful. Iran is Hamas's sponsor in weapons, financing, and other support. Hamas is essentially a terrorist arm of the Tehran regime more than it is a representative of the Palestinian people. If Biden is as serious about supporting Israel as...

    Tucker Carlson, one of Fox News' biggest boosters of President Donald Trump, made an impassioned case against the airstrike that killed Iran’s top military leader, blasting Washington for ignoring "the big picture." During his Friday night show, "Tucker Carlson Tonight," the host decried the escalation of tensions with Iran sparked by the killing of Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani. "No one in Washington is in the mood for big-picture questions right now," he lamented. "Questions like: Is Iran really the greatest threat we face?

    The worst attack on Israel in decades caught Israel, the United States, and the world by surprise. The extent of the attack and the tools of war used give every indication that Iran was involved both in supplying the weapons and in the timing of the attack. At least 70 citizens, including the elderly and children, have been killed and hostages have been taken into Gaza. There is fear that Hezbollah may attack in the North. Israel will do what it has to do to free their citizens and reclaim the land taken. Israel has responded with limited attacks and...

    Tucker Carlson blasted Iran hawks in the Washington establishment Friday, saying they have wanted a war with Iran for decades and that they may have finally gotten it thanks to President Trump ordering a drone strike that killed Iranian general Qassem Soleimani Thursday. "What happened yesterday wasn't just another symbolic bombing," Carlson warned on "Tucker Carlson Tonight." "It was a pivot point. Neocons in Washington understood that immediately." -snip- "Yes, Soleimani was linked to the deaths of Americans. Nobody mourns his passing. But Mexico and China are also linked to the deaths of Americans. Each has flooded our country with...
