Iran hit by another unexplained explosion

(It seems there are continuing explosions and what seem to be attacks on various Iranian facilities that have military or dual use purposes.)

From JNS.Org

The blast at the Kavian Fariman industrial complex was the latest in a series of mysterious explosions and fires at Iranian nuclear and power facilities in recent weeks.
(July 14, 2020 / JNS) Iranian police are investigating an explosion that started a fire at an industrial complex that contains gas-condensate storage tanks, Reuters reported on Monday.
According to the report, which was based on Iranian news outlets, Javad Jahandoust, the fire chief at the Kavian Fariman industrial complex, said that six storage tanks were ablaze and one had exploded.
The industrial complex is located south of the city of Mashhad.  
Jahandoust said the fire was under control, and that there were no casualties. 
This was the latest in a series of mysterious explosions and fires around Iranian military, nuclear and industrial facilities in recent weeks.

Brad Johnson on mosque lickers, 2nd hand smoke, and the Wuhan Flu

Brad Johnson reminds us how much Marxism has penetrated science with his reminder of the 2nd hand smoke hysteria.Very much like the book, The Silent Spring, which led to the ban of DDT and subsequent death of over one million Africans a year.

The representative of the Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader today called for the UK’s Ambassador to Iran Rob Macaire @HMATehran to be “chopped into pieces”.

Iranian expats protest the regime, and have choice words for media who blame President Trump for the aircraft

The CBC continues its ‘Voice of the COMINTERN’ propaganda efforts against the US president:

 

U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom on Anti-Semitism

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom held a hearing to discuss efforts to combat anti-Semitism around the world. The commission heard from panelists from the State Department, United Nations, Anti-Defamation League, American University, Emory University, and the Simon Wiesenthal Center, on domestic and global anti-Semitic trends and their recommendations for the commission

Iran shot down the jet

Iranian expat offers a few words about the legacy media and people who comment on Iran

Ezra Levant tweet:

CBC framed the question to force people to think it was the US’s fault that Iran shot down a passenger jet after the US responded to yet ANOTHER Iranian attack on a US embassy.

New York Times says it has verified the video of a missile hitting the passenger jet shortly after take off from Iran

Video verified by The New York Times appears to show an Iranian missile hitting a plane above Parand, near Tehran’s airport, the area where a Ukrainian airliner stopped transmitting its signal before it crashed on Wednesday.

 

A small explosion occurred when a missile hit the plane, but the plane did not explode, the video showed. The jet continued flying for several minutes and turned back toward the airport, The Times has determined. The plane flew toward the airport ablaze before it exploded and crashed quickly, other videos verified by The Times showed.

Trudeau lets Iran off the hook for shooting down the jet within 90 seconds of his beginning this press conference. Again, if Israel or the US had shot down this jet even because of a systems error, which would likely be the nature off the accident, more specifically, a badly designed air defence system misidentifying the jet, his language would be stronger and less forgiving it is fair to assume.

To be fair to a singularity unfair man, He does say our FM condemns Iran’s strikes against military bases and other targets. That was our FM though, not Trudeau.

 

Is Turkey the wildcard in the US – Iran game?

The following post is a bit of a rough ride. It is not attempting to lead anyone to any conclusions and may or may not have any meaning at all.

It is also possible that it has a great deal of meaning.

If one considers what Erdogan says in these clips to be repeating aspects of Reliance of the Traveler and other scripture, it could be very meaningful that a leader of a NATO country may say these words.

Or, it could be mindless nothings. Erdogan is known to speak with a lot of art and metaphor. So much so, many natives find it very hard to listen to.

These are from clips of a long video of Erdogan speaking at a CNN-TURK press conference. A Turkish Translator, ‘Tanya’, explains that translating Erdogan is in fact very frustrating as he speaks somewhat cryptically.

One question may be, is he speaking with a policy of deliberate ambiguity? Or is it because he is dog-whistling Islamic law and customs as the de facto leader of the muslim world at this time. At least geopolitically as the Muslim Brotherhood is now officially Turkish.

Lets begin with an American retired Colonel speaking on recent events concerning the US and Iran:

Below are two short excerpts from a clip that is over 90 minutes long altogether. But the following clips are both within the first 15 minutes.

Reliance quote on Jihad

With this little data, and a speaker who is possibly using a highly alien frame of reference, it’s difficult to say definitively what, if any, meaning can be extracted.

It’s also possible to infer one possible meaning of great strategic importance though.

And that would be that prominent NATO member state, Turkey, is wildly on the other side of the equation when it comes to Iran Vs. the US. and that Turkey could be the much bigger threat.

This is one of those Pascal’s wager type situations. Is the harm in not believing this is the case and being wrong, greater than the harm in believing this is the case and observing events with this possibility?

Thank you all very much who were part of putting all this together. You know who you are, and your work is of incalculable value.

 

Israeli expert gives his view of the importance of the killing of the Iranian general

(For some reason the system grabbed the wrong poster frame for this video but it is the right video. I will add more on who this man is and why it matters when it comes in. Thank you Brian of London for the clip)
