Iran to Launch ‘Massive’ War Drills

Iran to Launch ‘Massive’ War Drills thumbnail

Iranian military leaders announced on Thursday that the Islamic Republic would be launching a “massive” set of war drills later this week that will include the regime’s Army’s Ground Force and some 12,000 “combat and mobile forces,” according to Iran’s state-controlled media.

“The massive Eqtedar 97 war games of the Army’s Ground Force will be staged for two days in an extensive area of Isfahan region on Friday,” Iranian General Kiomars Heidari, commander of its ground force, said on Thursday.

The military leader disclosed that “different home-made weapons will be tested in the drills and various types of military equipment, including helicopters, drones and fighter jets will be used” in the war games, according to a report carried in the semi-official Fars News.

The military display is meant to send a message of reassurance to regional allies and one of warning to “enemies” of the Islamic Republic, Heidari said.

“The message of wargames for the friends of Iran is that they can consider the country’s military capabilities as part of the power of Islam’s army, meantime, adding that the Iranian army is always ready to give a crushing and quick response to any aggression by enemies,” Fars reported.

Iran conducted similar military drills earlier this month. Those war drills included heavy bombers and large refueling planes, such as those made by Boeing. Other types of large transportation planes and drones carried “precision-striking missiles and long-range smart bombs,” according to Iranian military leaders.

Meanwhile, Iraqi militia leaders operating in contested areas of Iraq disclosed this week Iran and its terror proxy group Hezbollah are responsible for teaching these jihadists how to build improvised explosive devices, or IEDs, that were used to kill and maim U.S. forces in the country since around 2004.

Sheikh Akram Al-Kaabi, the Al-Nujaba militia leader, disclosed the extent of Iran’s footprint during a wide-ranging interview earlier this month.

“The brothers from Hizbullah and from the IRGC helped us in that battle in Najaf. Even in Sadr City, there were Iranian consultants. There was an IRGC officer called Abu Ali, who was originally from Ahwaz and spoke fluent Arabic,” Al-Kaabi said in an interview on the militant group’s television channel that was subsequently translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

“He was with us in Najaf, and he helped us with the battle management and provided much-needed basic and important advice,” he continued. “We realized that if we use these capabilities and expertise in a more extensive way, we will have better results.”

“One brother, called Abu Turab, was known to all the brothers in the Mahdi Army,” he disclosed. “He was with us in Baghdad also. This brother from Hezbullah specialized in engineering and had a lot of expertise in matters of combat. He trained many of our brothers. Our chief engineer in Najaf, Dr. Jassem Al-Abadi, who was martyred, was among the first to be trained by that brother from Hezbullah and by the brothers from the IRGC,” Iran’s paramilitary group that operates outside of its borders.

“So we realized that if we acquired more capabilities, things would improve,” Al-Kaabi said, praising Iran. “Our morale was high. Our mujahideen were ready to make sacrifices. So we decided to take this path and acquire a lot of expertise. So we developed our relationship with the brothers in Hizbullah and the IRGC. Both Hizbullah and the IRGC were open with us about everything.”

    Damn, hear that everyone? Iran is holding a military exercise with a whole 12,000 troops. And they doing it INSIDE their own borders. How dare they?? And that is according to state-controlled media, which is also bad, because, apparently, to amerikans, there is nothing more sinister sounding that ‘State-controlled Media’.

    Oligarch .1% Corporate-controlled Media, otoh, which what amerikans have, that regularly dispenses little more than false, misleading, or just plain irrelevant ‘news’ on a 24/7 basis, is totally ok though. You can trust those guys completely. (cough).

    Anyhow, the uS for its part, routinely conducts numerous ‘exercises’ far from its own borders, and in almost every case, directly ON the borders of countries that pose no actual military threat to amerika, at all. And often, with nuclear-capable weapons to boot. This of course includes, the permanent uS garrisons surrounding Iran, ostensibly there to ‘protect’ the oil trade. And by protect the oil trade, they really mean threaten and intimidate Iran, as well as keeping a close eye on the uS’s proxies and puppets in the area.

    But that is ok too, since the uS only holds those ‘exercises’ (cough) to promote peace, goodwill and democracy.

    PSA: Exceptionalturd, voluntarily check yourself into the nearest mental-health care facility, if any are still operating, in your so-called ‘state’. You need help.

    “France & Germany: “We Are Committed To The Emergence Of A European Army”
    https://tinyurl.com/y95jbyz2

    “French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have signed a new Franco-German friendship treaty aimed at reinvigorating the European Union, which has been buffeted by the European debt crisis, mass migration and Brexit — as well as innumerable conflicting interests and priorities among its 28 member states. France and Germany, the self-appointed guardians of European integration, have said that the new treaty is a response to the growing influence of populists in Austria, Britain, France, Italy, Hungary, Poland and other European countries who are seeking to slow, and even reverse, European integration by recouping national sovereignty from the European Union and transferring those powers back to national capitals. The continental showdown, which threatens to split the European Union down the middle between Eurosceptic nationalists and Europhile globalists, will heat up in coming weeks, ahead of elections for the European Parliament in late May 2019.”

    “The treaty, however, is short on details and may end up being more symbolic than substantive. Merkel and Macron are both facing waning authority and it remains unclear whether they will have the necessary political capital to jump-start European integration. Germany is now looking toward the post-Merkel era, after she announced that she would step down as chancellor in 2021. Macron is grappling with a nationwide wave of anti-government protests that may yet bring down his government. The treaty has been met with a mixture of anger and indifference.”

    Don’t get me started about communists.

    Number of people killed internally:

    Fascist Italy 1922-1943……10
    Third Reich 1933-1939……..600
    Britain 1933-1939…………600
    USSR 1917-1938……………millions

    I have said this several times but the mobster keeps ignoring this, which is fine, because it keeps giving me the opportunity to stomp him in his kosher face with facts to refute his intentional lies.

    Peak France military was 1795-1812 (Napoleon). They took entire Europe, including Germany and walked all the way to Moscow and actually took the city, in contrast to the Germans in 1941. Probably the greatest military achievement ever (it took the Romans centuries)

    The French walked into Indo-China, including Vietnam, by the 1880s and kept it until the Japanese takeover in 1942. The Americans could only dream of that. They couldn’t even conquer North-Vietnam, not even with the help of South-Vietnam. That’s what you get with American flower people (“hippies”).

    In 1940 8,000 Germans defeated 25,000 British and French and British in 1 month time in Norway, in an operation started by the French and British.

    One month later the Germans defeated the tiny Dutch army in 4 days and numerical superior French and British in 6 weeks. The battle was again provoked by the Alllies, not the Germans.

    Yesterday a poll on German television, a vast majority of the Germans (ca. 67%) want deeper cooperation with France, ca 25% the same and only ca. 8% want less cooperation (“populists”). I don’t worry about the potential European military strength at all. It is potentially all still there. With the Russians we will be invincible and for instance able to pacify CW2, if necessary.

    “Bailing Out Member States: The European (Dis)Union”
    https://tinyurl.com/y8s93cen

    “They recently came out with a great overview of where Europe is headed. The trends they highlight are both interesting and actionable for those willing to put the time into thinking through the consequences of the new “Strongmen of Europe.” The EU has now had a decade of economic crisis and is slowly moving from economic crisis towards a full-fledged political crisis which will be its ultimate undoing. There will naturally be many actionable trades along the way. Most important amongst these will be; Increased inflation Issues with energy security Increased national sovereignty Ultimate breakup of the EU”

    “With Germany holding down production costs they’ve become far more efficient than their Eurozone neighbors… who, by the way, are also their largest export market – representing 2/3rds of their exports. So Germany has effectively engineered a devaluation of their own production costs providing a structural advantage. No wonder German exports have grown so strongly under the EU, and no wonder it’s been Germany leading the charge at the EU gleefully bossing about all those peasant class member states. To give you some perspective, between 2000 and 2009 the per labour unit cost required to produce a German good rose 5.8%. The equivalent in Italy, Ireland, Spain and Greece rose by 30%. That’s a 500% differential.”

    “An EU Banking Crisis The problem we now face (and this looks to be coming to a head) is that this leaves Germany with the unenviable task of bailing out member states. It’s ironic because the very structure that was put in place, largely by Germany, has allowed them to become an export powerhouse. But as you can see it was built on flimsy foundations with an exponential factor embedded whereby the longer it remains in place the worse the pain for all involved will ultimately be.”

    “Here’s none other than Germany’s most “prestigious” investment bank. Deutsche Bank. According to Business Week German banks are exposed to over $250 billion in Eurozone nations bonds. But really, who the hell knows. How much is held in offshore SPVs which are also “off balance sheet” and how much of that Greek, Portuguese, Turkish (yeah looking at you BBVA), Spanish, Italian, Cypriot NPLs haven’t been market to market? We don’t know.”

    “Take that liquidity away and you’re left with a whooshing sound. A black hole. A vacuum. This is why the ECB are going to have a helluva time raising rates this year as promised. One problem that’s particular about the Eurozone is that when the GFC hit, the ECB had already been providing gargantuan amounts of liquidity to the banking sector. It was a situation quite unlike in the US. Consider that when the ECB launched QE, excess liquidity stood at 125 billion Euro. That’s a isht ton. Since then it’s grown like kudzu and sits at over 1.8 trillion Euro.”

    ‘Resistance’ Media Side With Trump to Promote Coup in Venezuela

    Trump ramped up the Obama administration’s sanctions, an action that caused Venezuelan oil production to plummet (FAIR.org, 12/17/18) and the economy to nosedive. Furthermore, US economic warfare against the country has cut Venezuela off from global capital markets—with the Trump administration threatening bankers with 30 years in prison if they negotiate with Caracas a standard restructuring of its debt (AlterNet, 11/13/17). The UN Human Rights Council formally condemned the US, noting that the sanctions target “the poor and most vulnerable classes,” called on all member states to break them, and even began discussing reparations the US should pay to Venezuela.
