We are now living in very interesting times. The recent events in Yemen have profound implications for daily life here in the USA. The fact the mainstream media, our government and military don’t seem to understand that is disturbing, dangerous and potentially fatal.

The four W’s are Who, What, Where and Why. The first is where. The brief answer is the entire Middle East. The eastern boundary is the Pakistan and Indian border. You then continue west, through Afghanistan, what are called the Russian stans, all the way to Turkey and the Black Sea. You then go south through Syria, Lebanon, Israel all the way to Egypt. You then go west through North Africa all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. Next, you head south to Northern Nigeria. After that, you go east all the way to the Horn of Africa, including Somalia. And finally, you include the entire Arabian Peninsula. The Arabian Peninsula includes Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman and the Gulf States. This entire area is what the military would call the theater of operations. It is upon this stage the world will impale itself in a whirlwind of chaos and blood.

The next W is who. The list of individual nations involved is a long one. The basic divide is between Sunni and Shia Muslims. Shia Muslims total roughly fifteen percent of all Muslims, over one billion at the last count. Sunni Muslims are about eighty five percent of all Muslims. They despise, loathe; hate each other. They are quite willing to kill each other on sight. This is due to what I can only call a difference of opinion over the succession after the Prophet. It is enough to know this battle has lasted for over thirteen hundred years and is now a fundamental driving force in the Middle East. The West makes the same mistake with Islam they made with Communism. There was never monolithic Communism during the Cold War. There is no monolithic Islam either. We ignore this to our peril.

The third W is what is really going on in the Middle East. The answer involves a complex mix of religion, economics, culture and military issues. The most basic force driving all events in the entire Middle East is the civil war between Shia and Sunni Muslims. We are now, in my opinion, engaged in the final phase of a one thousand, three hundred year war between the Shia and Sunni Muslims. I will not deny oil plays a part in the ongoing chaos. I will simply point out the core of the violence is religious. The violence is between Shia and Sunni Muslims. The violence is between various sects of the Sunni branch of Islam. Of course, as Tom Lehrer sang, “Everybody hates the Jews.” We are now seeing a violent family feud inside of Islam itself.

The final W is why. The answer to that also involves oil and the money, politics and power flowing from oil revenue. I will only say the primary, not the only, but the primary reason is religious. Islam has three Holy sites. The first is Mecca and the Kaaba. All Muslims are required to make a Hajj, or pilgrimage, to Mecca if they are able to do so. The second site is Medina. Medina is where the first Muslims fled to after being kicked out of Mecca. The third site is Jerusalem. Jerusalem contains the Dome of the Rock. You will note two of the three Holy sites are in modern Saudi Arabia. They are under the control of the House of Saud and bestow both legitimacy and power on the current leadership of Saudi Arabia. The oil revenue flowing to the House of Saud from the oil fields is not in fact the basis of their power. The power comes from what the ancient Chinese called “the mandate of Heaven.”  The House of Saud is thought by the entire Sunni branch of Islam to gain credibility and authority which makes Saudi Arabia the dominant power in Sunni Islam.

We are now seeing open warfare over the control of the entire Arabian Peninsula. The players are the House of Saud, ISIS and the Shia represented by Iran. The House of Saud is willing to do whatever it takes to maintain the current status quo. ISIS, which is a sect of Sunni Islam, is also willing to do whatever it takes to gain control of the Holy sites. ISIS has recently proclaimed their intention to create, or restore, the ancient Islamic Caliphate. ISIS needs physical control of all three sites to do that. ISIS realizes to do that they will first need to overthrow the House of Saud. ISIS also understands they need to conquer Israel in order to get control over the Dome of the Rock. Finally, the Shia in general, and Iran in particular, need to conquer both Israel and Saudi Arabia to gain control of the Holy Sites.

We are now seeing a three sided contest for control of Islam’s Holy sites. Everything that is now going in Yemen, Syria and Iraq is a result of this battle over the Holy sites. Again, this is a religious war. It does have other aspects. However, it is a religious war between the Shia and the Sunni, as well as between different sects of the Sunni, over control of Islam’s Holy sites.

I will also say this battle over control over Islam’s Holiest sites will eventually drag in the rest of the world, perhaps being dragged, kicking and screaming, but this will happen. I will also admit I see no solution to this ongoing Islamic Civil War. It will play out on its own timetable. It will not be settled by economic or political responses. It will be settled on the battlefield. It will be settled in blood and fire.

The man who is making this statement is the same Iraqi Shia leader who heads an armed Shia militia numbering in the tens of thousands. He is the same guy who openly engaged the US military in 2006 or so and damn near started a civil war. It was the ISIS mosque attack in Yemen that unleashed the total chaos now underway in Yemen. This attack is going to cause the Shia Muslims living in Eastern Saudi Arabia to respond. Saudi Arabia has some 15 percent of its population of the Shia Muslim sect. This is more than enough to cause the House of Saud to feel threatened and respond even more harshly than they have up to date. The Shia living in Saudi Arabia will be further radicalized and more likely to take direct action against the Sunni majority. A civil war inside of Saudi Arabia is no longer a fantasy given the mosque attack.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Senior Iraqi Cleric and Head of the Sadrist Movement Moqtada al-Sadr in a statement strongly condemned the Friday terrorist attack in a Shiite mosque in Eastern Saudi Arabia, and warned the Al Saud regime of the imminent outbreak of a revolution in that country.

Moqtada Sadr’s statement came after a suicide bomber blew himself at Qatif Shiite mosque in the East of Saudi Arabia during Friday prayers.

The senior Iraqi cleric said some parts of the Saudi government could have been engaged in masterminding or staging the Friday terrorist attack, and warned that in case of a similar incident in Saudi Arabia, unrest will break out in that country and there will be an Arab Spring.

“What happened against the Shiites in Qatif was not for the first time and I do not think that it was the last time either, specially when considering that the Saudi regime does not prevent the extremists from carrying out such terrorist actions,” he added.

Local residents said the explosion killed and wounded at least 30 people.

The blast took place at the Imam Ali mosque in the town of al-Qadeeh, in al-Qatif province. One witness said there were at least 30 casualties in the attack, where more than 150 people were praying.


  CNN’s Jake Tapper Calls Out Democratic Party Over Photo It Used to Celebrate Memorial Day

   Obama, our Marxist Traitor-in-Chief, continues to truly amaze Doomer Doug. I mean you just can’t make this stuff up, gang. Here it is  Memorial Day, the one day the USA honors the men and women who have DIED IN THE DEFENSE OF THE USA GOING BACK TO 1776; our esteemed leader Obama, or his minions, are so clueless they really don’t get how insulting, offensive and disrespectful it is to show our Commander- In -Chief eating an ice cream cone.

I have to say this shows Obama and the Democrats don’t get the underlying reason for Memorial Day. Obama eating an ice cream cone doesn’t exactly show a real level of dealing with sacrifice. Every single other American President, even our anti-military Clinton, went to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and laid a wreath. Obama may actually do that, but after having sent out this” Memorial Day as no big deal photo” the damage is no longer containable. For all of you who seriously don’t think the US military will  not SUMMARILY EXECUTE OBAMA FOR TREASON IF THE FECAL MATERIAL HITS THE ROTATING BLADE, well you don’t get the level of open contempt Obama and the Democrats show in this picture. I am telling you the hatred level for Obama just went off the charts. It was one of the Roman Emperor’s who said for his replacement to “take care of the Praetorian Guard.” Obama’s Secret Service agents are clowns. The military hates Obama’s guts and will take him out no problem.

Obama is a little child playing at being Commander-in-Chief. When it really matters, and when the fact he has never been able to be anything other than a freaking clown OBAMA WILL BE QUIETLY ELIMINATED, AND THE ADULTS WILL TAKE OVER.

Granted, the USA is now a corrupt, incompetent, oligarchy run by greedy morons, but still the vision of a honor based Republic, and  run by a moral people showing moral virtue is worth fighting for. The USA was a Republic based on moral virtue. We should try that model again.

Iran continues its aggressive naval policy in the Persian Gulf with the second act of Piracy against international shipping. Viewers of this blog are not surprised at the ongoing escalation by Iran and its open threats to global oil transport in the Persian Gulf. Iran is also not backing off in its attempts to resupply the Houthi Tribal Militias in Yemen. It is clear to anybody with an IQ above single digits Iran will attempt to dock in one of Yemen’s ports. And Iran will use military force to make that landing happen.

The only credible reason for Iran’s actions is they have made the decision to take the Sunni/Shia JIHAD to its logical conclusion. Western and Sunni governments are making potential fatal assumptions on just how far Iran is going to push the envelope here. After all, Iran created suicide warriors during the 1980s war with Saddam’s Iraq. The idea Iran will not actually fight the Sunni/Saudi Arabian coalition is based on a misunderstanding of the revolutionary fervor Iran has been in since 1979. Again, the Iranian military is totally based on the cult of suicide against its Western and Sunni enemies. We will find our assumptions about what Iran will do are flawed. Death to an Iranian is not what it is to us. They fight to die; we fight to live. We should remember that.

Iran navy fires shots at tanker as tensions rise in Gulf

WASHINGTON/LONDON – Iranian naval vessels fired shots at a Singapore-flagged tanker in the Gulf on Thursday, in what appeared to be Iran’s latest attempt to settle a legal dispute by force with passing commercial vessels, U.S. officials said.

The incident unnerved the shipping industry just as President Barack Obama met with Gulf allies to try to allay their concerns that Iran would be empowered by a deal to curb Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for the West lifting sanctions.

U.S. officials, speaking to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said five Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy ships approached the Alpine Eternity oil products tanker at about noon (0800 GMT), prompting the ship to flee to safety in United Arab Emirates’ waters.

One U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Iran had attempted to intercept the vessel in international waters because Tehran says the tanker is liable for damage to an Iranian-owned oil platform it hit on March 22.

The White House, Pentagon and State Department declined to confirm emerging details about the episode but acknowledged concern about Iran’s conduct.”This is exactly the type of challenge that many of the (Gulf) partners are focused on,” said White House Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes.

Two weeks ago, Iranian patrol ships diverted a Marshall Islands-flagged container vessel from the Strait of Hormuz to settle a years-old debt case.

Shipping industry officials said they were bracing for the likelihood of even more tensions at sea, which could lead to a spike in shipping costs.

“The pattern looks like the Revolutionary Guards are using a commercial pretext to intervene in the incidents to date,” said one shipping underwriter. “This could start to impact upon (insurance) rates.”

The Pentagon did not rule out again ordering U.S. warships to accompany commercial vessels passing through the Strait of Hormuz, as it did after the last incident.

The tanker’s owner, South Maritime Pte Ltd, said in a statement that the ships, which it believed to be Iranian, first fired warning shots but then directly fired on the vessel after it ignored an order to stop.

“No serious damage was sustained by the vessel and none of the 23 crew members were injured,” the statement said. The owner said the vessel safely reached the port of Jebel Ali.

Millions of barrels of oil are transported daily through the Bab el-Mandeb and Strait of Hormuz to Europe, the United States and Asia, waterways which pass along the coasts of Yemen and Iran respectively.

The episode in the Gulf coincided with mounting concern over an Iranian cargo ship headed to Yemen. A Saudi Arabia-led coalition has imposed an air and maritime blockade to stop weapons supplies reaching the Iran-allied Houthi rebels.

Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri, Deputy Chief of Iran’s Armed Forces, warned of war if the ship, which Tehran says is carrying humanitarian supplies, was attacked.

Still, the Pentagon on Thursday said Iran had so far at least refrained from dispatching warships to accompany the cargo vessel, despite announcing plans to do so.

      I have been saying since January we are now dealing with a Shia/Sunni religious war that has military, economic, political and cultural aspects. Iran and Saudi Arabia are now fully involved in a PROXY WAR using various groups to fight indirectly. I have also thought there would come a “trigger event,” that would unleash all the pent up violence.

Iran has made it clear by its actions over the last five months it will brook no US/Sunni/Saudi Arabian crap. If you look at the sequence of what Iran has done, well they are clearly preparing for a hot war with Saudi Arabia. Further, they are setting up an economic firestorm by blocking BOTH THE SUEZ CANAL ENTRANCES AND THE PERSIAN GULF STRAIT OF HORMUZ. The military aspects of this are matched by the economic aspects of this proxy conflict. The price of oil is a tactical weapon and doctrine for both Iran and Saudi Arabia. Iran will block transit lanes and unleash an economic crisis unseen since October of 1973.

Iran won’t back down now in my opinion. If Saudi Arabia attempts to physically block that ship from landing, or even try to board it IRAN WILL RESPOND WITH MILITARY FORCE.

Iran will fire on any foreign military ship, or plane that tries to block the so called “humanitarian” ship from unloading in Yemen. Iran is also not stupid, so my view is this particular ship really does have 2500 tons of food and medical supplies.

Obama is the wrong man, in the wrong place and will totally fail to prevent Iran and Saudi Arabia from going at each others throats. The key thing is whether the ENTIRE SUNNI MUSLIMS, THE 85 PERCENT, REALLY GO AFTER THE SHIA 15 PERCENT.

Any analysis of the Iran/Saudi Arabian proxy war must factor in it is a RELIGIOUS WAR THAT HAS LASTED SOME 1300 YEARS NOW.

This is not about a ship unloading. This is not about politics, or even economics at this point. IT IS NOW A RELIGIOUS WAR AND IS IN FACT A SUNNI/SHIA JIHAD, OR HOLY WAR.

Nations and individuals do not back down from Holy Wars.

Kris, if all that happens is the price of US gas goes to $8 a gallon, we will have dodged the bullet.…022078061.html

Iran Warns Off US, French Planes, Warships in Gulf of Aden
“Attacking the Iranian Red Crescent aid ship will spark war in the region”, Brigadier General Massoud Jazzayeri told the Arabic-language TV Alalam.

“The US and Saudi Arabia should know that Iran’s self-restraint has a limit,” he cautioned.

An Iranian ship carrying 2,500 tons of medical supplies, relief workers and peace activists from several countries left the Southern Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas for Yemen’s Red Sea port of Hudaydah, Iran’s Fars news agency reported.

The Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) has been trying to dispatch humanitarian aid to Yemen by sea and air, but has failed due to Saudi Arabia’s full blockade of the war-ravaged country.

Iran had earlier sent five consignments of humanitarian aid to Yemen, including a total of 69 tons of relief, medical, treatment, and consumer items, the agency reported.

Saudi Arabia launched its bombing campaign against Yemen on March 26 in an attempt to drive out the Shiite Houthi militants who seized power in Yemen, and to reinstate the fugitive President Mansour Hadi.

  1. This is from I have long said we are undergoing a coherent, long planned attack by Marxist ideologues. Thanks to Be Well for this catch.<G>



    Written May 7, 2015 Bob Lonsberry

    When you recognize what, you need to ask why.

    It’s called situational assessment.

    What’s going on, and why is it going on?

    Like right now, in America, with the police.

    What’s going on, and why is it going on?

    What’s going on is that there is a concerted effort to defame and denounce local police. The president said this week that, across the country, men of color are treated differently, more harshly, by the police.

    He offered no data, no balance, no facts.

    Just the broadside indictment that all American cops are racists.

    Protest after protest, often with veteran progressive activists in command, have denounced and condemned the police. It is asserted as an unassailable fact that the police are racist, over-armed and disrespectful of people and their rights.

    None of it is backed up with facts, or anything other than a string of undocumented anecdotal accounts that sound like folklore.

    Fingers point at Ferguson, where three investigations showed that the officer did nothing but defend himself against a violent attack. Fingers point at Baltimore where everything boils down to a prisoner not having his seatbelt on.

    And speaking of Baltimore, it is a city with a 2-to-1 black majority, a black mayor and city council, a black police chief and a black prosecuting attorney, and a 43-percent black police force, and yesterday they announced that they were partnering with the Justice Department to root out anti-black practices.

    All stemming from an incident in which three of the six officers charged are black.

    The claim of racism has become so powerful that it is made and accepted as fact in the absence of evidence or logic.

    That’s the what.

    There is a concerted effort to damage public perception of local police, and to paint the profession of American law enforcement as a tool of anti-black racism.

    So what’s the why?

    Here’s my theory.

    In an administration that is intensely focused on the accumulation of federal power, and under a president who promised a federal domestic security force to rival the Defense Department in both personnel and budget, I think the goal is to lay the foundation for turning traditional law enforcement over to federal police.

    In each of the flare ups of late, the federal government has presented itself as the solution – even though it is clear the speeches and statements of senior federal officials fanned if not sparked the flames of conflict.

    The federal government has presented itself as the only protection blacks and Latinos have against racist cops.

    The federal government is doing everything it can to create the perception of a problem, and to simultaneously present itself as the solution to the problem.

    To me, that smells like a power grab.

    And the government can’t take to itself more power without taking from you more rights.

    More specifically, increased policing powers in the hands of the federal government makes those police agencies less accountable to the people. It also increases the potential, in the worst of circumstances, of despotic or oppressive actions.

    Local police departments, controlled by local chiefs and sheriffs – and the voters to whom they or their bosses have to answer – are not threats to civil rights, they are protectors of civil rights.

    The federal government has never really explained its need for something approaching a half a billion handgun bullets that could only be used for domestic policing. Why is it that agencies like the Department of Interior and the Bureau of Land Management, as well as the Department of Agriculture, have heavily armed military-style SWAT teams?

    And why is it that the president of the United States would work so hard to destroy public confidence in American law enforcement? Specifically, why would he do so much to assure the alienation of black Americans from the police?

    The what is fact – Defaming the police and defining their entire profession as bigotry.

    The why is theory – To turn enough Americans against the police to justify a power grab by the federal government.

    And that’s no good.

    And it’s all based on a lie.

    Because as the president and the TV anchors talk about police and community relations, I don’t know what they’re talking about.

    My community has great relations with the police. We respect them and they respect us.

    And polls show that Americans trust the police more than they trust politicians. Personally, I trust my local cops more than I trust my national president.

    What is being whipped up against the police is not logic or fact, it is prejudice and bigotry. And it is being whipped up for a reason.

    And that’s what I think we ought to be worried about.

    Leave illusion, come to the Truth
    Leave the darkness, come to the Light

    Here are my thoughts.
  2. We are dealing with a long planned MARXIST attack on the USA at all levels. We are seeing cultural, economic, political, military and system coherence attacks. The USA is divided into city, county, state and federal levels of authority. Obama our Marxist traitor is well into the destruction of the USA at the federal level. The Marxists are now going lower on the power chain in order to disrupt and destroy the USA at the city, county and state level. The vast majority of American citizens have far more contact with city, county and state government than they do with the Feds. The Marxist collapse of LOCAL authority will enhance the Federal collapse.

    Quick reply to this message

ISIS IN TEXAS 5-5-2015

      I think the USA of 2015 is now entering the final phase of the long planned race, religious and cultural civil war. We are now facing a multi-pronged attack on several fronts here in the decadent USA. We are seeing intentional efforts, planned out of Obama’s White House, to trigger a race war under the illusion of seeking racial equality. We are also seeing a coherent effort to impose Homosexual values on the popular culture. And finally, we are seeing the start of a religious war between Militant Islam and the remnants of Secular Christianity left in the USA. The final phase is the elimination of native Americans with hordes of illegals. Once the masses of illegal voters vote Democrat, in order to get their benefits promised by Obama, the ability to change things using the political process will be eliminated. After that, armed revolt, the famous Civil War Two will happen.

This particular attack, in my opinion, was sanctioned by the elite to trigger even more violence. The original attack, the two guys with guns, was clearly allowed to happen by the elite. One of them had been on the watch list since 2007. The revenge beating outside the Mosque was also sanctioned in my opinion. The  attacks were throwing more lighter fluid on the bonfire in order to further throw the USA into social anarchy.

    In terms of Islam in the USA, the real issue is not if there will be more violence. This is as certain as the sun coming up in the East. The real issue is after having poured multiple MILLIONS of Muslims into the USA, under the mantra of refugees, is whether they want to become Americans. The other issue is what we will do when it becomes clear they have no intention of accepting American culture; in fact, want to create a North American Caliphate. At that point, we will either deport them, or put them in camps like the Nissei in 1942, or kill them. Further, the type of government that will do that will be voted in, or come to power in a military coup.

Yep, those who think beating up a Muslim means much in the grand scheme of things don’t understand the skill and discipline the New World Order has used to destroy the historical American Constitutional Republic. If you get nothing else, then get the fact all this social anarchy in the USA now is part of a globalist plan to replace the USA with a feudal system.
