The United States will this week commence huge military maneuvers aimed at Iran, with a massive air fleet patrolling middle eastern skies ready to land at any time, in response to Iran’s involvement in an alleged assassination plot that experts have labeled dubious, amidst fears that US and Israeli targets could be hit by attacks.
As we reported last week, during US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s October 3 Tel Aviv visit, Israeli hawks attempted to persuade Panetta to give the green light for a military strike on Iran. Within ten days, details of an alleged assassination plot against a Saudi ambassador emerged and the foiled attack was blamed on Iran. Innumerable experts immediately voiced their doubts about the authenticity of the plot, with 21-year CIA veteran Robert Baer labeling the story “a truly awful Hollywood script”.
The US military will respond this week with a series of significant military maneuvers designed to threaten Iran, including, “an American air fleet in Middle East skies ready to land at any moment for any contingency,” reports DebkaFile.
“The United States launches a large-scale exercise over the Middle East deploying 41 giant transports of the 22nds Airlift Squadron Monday Oct. 17,” states the report, adding that the aircraft will be packed with fully equipped, battle ready troops.
A further seven warships from the Stennis Battle Group will also “provide ground troops with combat support and strike land and sea targets.”
The Israeli, Egyptian and Saudi armies have also been placed on maximum preparedness, echoing reports that U.S. troops being sent to the region have also been put on full alert.

To be honest, im suprised it took so long. I always take what Alex Jones says with a grain and a half of salt though. He has been inaccurate for very long now on some things [while to be fair, he nails some things]
It's been the big topic for a while now, attack Iran then WWIII
Unfortunately it's one of those things that come and go, because ultimately it will happen, but it has not happened yet. So a bunch of predictions about when keep popping up since someone has to be right one of these times.
This case, there is actually some decent supporting evidence of this upcomming. I am not sure i agree with the statements AJ has been making on the 2 weeks timeframe, but i do agree it will be sooner than later. There is also a lot coming down the pipe saying a lot of our government is against it and it can still be squashed. I'll keep my eye on this one from the sideline until I know more
China, being allied with Iran, and already pissed off at us over their currency situation, dumps our debt.
Our economy collapses. The situation in the middle east shoots gas prices higher than ever before.
Do any current military members remember war gaming against Russia? I don’t.
