U.S. Scaremongers About Iranian Missiles But Reduces Mideast Missile Defense

he propaganda of the Trump administration says that all must fear those ghastly Iranian missiles:

Trump’s Iran envoy blasts Tehran missile work .. - Sep 19

Brian Hook, the US special envoy on Iran, cited Iran’s continuing development, testing and transfer of ballistic missile technology as a key flaw of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal that President Donald Trump withdrew from in May.

John Bolton warns Iran 'there will be hell to pay' if aggression continues: 'We will come after you' - Sep 24

The Iran nuclear deal, Bolton said Tuesday, "did nothing to address the regime’s destabilizing activities or its ballistic missile development and proliferation.

Trump’s speech to the UN General Assembly - Sep 25

The Iran deal was a windfall for Iran’s leaders. In the years since the deal was reached, Iran’s military budget grew nearly 40 percent. The dictatorship used the funds to build nuclear-capable missiles, increase internal repression, finance terrorism, and fund havoc and slaughter in Syria and Yemen.

As with any government one must look at what the Trump administration actually does, not what it says.

U.S. Pulling Some Missile-Defense Systems Out of Mideast - Sep 26

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is pulling four Patriot missile systems out of Jordan, Kuwait and Bahrain next month in a realignment of forces and capabilities ..
...
Two Patriot missile systems will be redeployed from Kuwait, and one each from Jordan and Bahrain, officials said. Patriots are mobile missile systems capable of shooting down missiles and planes.

The four systems have been taken offline and will be redeployed by next month, officials said. There are no plans for any of them to be replaced, ..

The Patriot missile defenses the U.S. kept in those countries were protecting U.S. bases in the region. If these were really threatened by Iranian missiles this reduction of defensive capabilities would be irresponsible. But the simple truth is that Iran's meager capabilities are no threat at all:

Patriot systems in the Gulf may not serve the purpose they once did, said Anthony Cordesman, senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a think tank in Washington, D.C. That is in part because Iran lacks the kind of missile capability required to level precision attacks.

In addition, if the Patriot deployments to the Gulf region were intended mainly for air defenses, that threat simply doesn’t exist as it once did, he said. Iran now is no match for U.S. allies in the Gulf region, which have superior air forces.

The Trump administration knows well that Iran's missile capabilities are no threat at all. Iran's best defense capabilities are its location next to a major hydrocarbon transport route, the Strait of Hormuz, and its ability to respond asymmetrically through proxy-forces.

The hype about "Iran's missiles" is just for show. It is a cheap way to convince the Saudis and the Zionist that Trump is doing something they like.

By now practically every word the US government and its lackeys say is nothing but a direct projection of its own actions onto specially designated "enemies". That's the one and only rationale for US hostility toward Iran, Russia, North Korea, none of which have done anything against any real US interest, and from any rational point of view wouldn't be enemies at all.

Trumps noise about Iran also stems from his obsessive hatred of Obama. Classy people who look[ed] down on Trump respect[ed] Obama, and Trump resents that. Obama cut a deal with Iran, so Trump is compelled to undo it.

I'm not a vanilla US Liberal, wasting all my time obsessing about everything Trump tweets. He's not the worst force in US politics; the GOP is. But please don't pretend that Trump is Our Savior.

And I wouldn't be surprised to find that Trump isn't aware of "details" like Mattis pulling Patriot batteries out of Gulf countries not named "Saudi Arabia".

Medea Benjamin Shows America What Anti-war Activism Looks Like

A think tank is an organization wherein highly-paid academics pour their collective brainpower into coming up with convincing arguments that it would be good and smart to do something evil and stupid. At one such think tank, the Hudson Institute, former John Bolton advisor and current Mike Pompeo lackey Brian Hook had his neocon cuddle party interrupted by CodePink activist Medea Benjamin Wednesday morning. Benjamin excoriated the Director of Policy Planning for Pompeo’s Iran Action Team, decrying the Trump administration’s crippling sanctions following its withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.

This is what it takes. But this is all it takes. Interrupt our regularly scheduled programming with a burst of truth and humanity will inevitably rouse a few more from their hypnosis, and a few more awake is a few more towards tipping point. While Democrats are holding demonstrations in support of longstanding neocon agendas against Russia and leftists are gathering to punch racist nobodies in the face, this feisty little sheila threw her body into the bright lights of the brainwashing machine and jammed it right up until they had to physically remove her.

If a nation breaks/is in violation of a UNSC Resolution, why is it then allowed to chair the UNSC? Shouldn't its actions preclude it from being granted that privilege? Same question goes for breaking the UN Charter while addressing the UNGA as Trump did both last year and this? IMO, the UN needs to make rules that punish bully nations like the Outlaw US Empire.

As for Iranian missiles being incapable of destroying infrastructure being targeted, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near it when it explodes. Sure, they may not penetrate hardened targets, but much of what Iran would attack in Saudi for example is soft and fragile.

Reply @2 elkhern The idea that the GOP is the worst force in politics is ridiculous.

I suggest you look closer at your allegation that Trump hasn't started any new wars--the biggest one would be his massive Trade War against most of the planet's nations and the massive escalation in the Hybrid Third World War targeting Russia, Venezuela, Myanmar, Qatar, Nicaragua, while sheparding Daesh to Afghanistan and elsewhere to keep it alive for future use. Trump's MAGA is just his version of the Outlaw US Empire's primary policy goal of attaining Full Spectrum Dominance as proven by recent policy publications and Congressional testimony which I've provided to this forum.

In case you've wondered what's happened to asiatimesonline, here's the answer: CIA using "a group of American financiers" as cover has taken over, which is why the editorial and reportage focus has so visibly changed.

I've long wanted him to have his own website, maybe this event will now move him to do so.

"........The Trump administration knows well that Iran's missile capabilities are no threat at all. Iran's best defense capabilities are its location next to a major hydrocarbon transport route, the Strait of Hormuz, and its ability to respond asymmetrically through proxy-forces........"

The current threat from Iran, indeed, does come mainly from their arming of their proxies. The Houthis did not develop ballistic missile technology on their own, but have been supplied by Iran. The Houthis have been firing missiles at Saudi Arabia which is why the Patriot missiles will remain in Saudi Arabia. The (current) threat to Israel comes primarily from Iran transferring their missile technology to Hezbollah - a US recognized terrorist organization - and using the "forward bases" to launch ballistic missiles in any confrontation with Israel.

This is the main reason that Israel has been flying hundreds of sorties in Syria. I suspect that the same deconfliction rules will still apply in Syria between Russia and Israel with Russia having the final say on approving the targets (with much more than a minute warning!). Finally, Iran's ballistic missile development is a long term threat to Israel - and surrounding countries.

If my memory is reliable, Romania hosts Aegis Onshore - more or less the same equipment found on USN ships. I think Japan is interested in this too. Also, the Mk.41 VLS universal launch canister is installed there and can also launch nuclear armed cruise missiles... across the Black Sea at short notice, so quite a strategic threat.

Iran has created enormous quantities of radioactive waste (depleted uranium) from its enrichment activities over the years. This has been used to build uranium warheads of the same type that Israel used in August 2006 against southern Lebanon. (The radioactivity left by the use of these missiles was confirmed my the United Nations Environment Program.) The uranium is radioactive for 2.2 billion years with a half life of 4.5 billion years.

A one-ton bunker buster warhead burns at up to 6,000° C. and turns into roughly one ton of radioactive powder, ceramic-like (virtually indestructible), most of it microscopic. It can -- and does -- infiltrate the water table and all vegetation, not to mention the air and the constant low-level internal sources of radiation in the human body it produces when it is inhaled and deposited in the lungs.

If missiles with such warheads were fired on Israel, it would result in permanent contamination.

Thus, any attack on Iran would have to be colossal in order to destroy within as short a time as possible all known and suspected missile silos -- a veritable blitz attack. Israel does not have the planes and bombs to do this, but with United States support, this would be possible. However, in my humble opinion as a researcher and analyst in this area, it is highly unlikely that such a blitz would manage to hit everything and highly likely that some Iranian missiles would get through.

The only questions are what missiles Iran has and how many. I reckon that Iran has enough to do quite a bit of damage to the Zionist entity. Those betting on a blitz that will completely neutralize this force are probably as deluded by their own lies and hubris as those who predicted a "cakewalk" into Iraq in 2003. Given the Zionist entity's small territory, even a small number of such hits would be terrible for the Zionists.

Bolton's threats today are ominous. He is drunk on power and wields a huge influence over Drumpf, and he is backed by a huge cohort of war mongers in the Pentagon, in the intelligence services and in the armaments industry, these last lusting after another oppotunity to test their newest products and thus inflate their prices by being able to affix to them them designation "battle tested".

The recent decision (ignored by the mainstream media) by the European Union and Russia to set up, in keeping with the nuclear agreement with Iran, a "financial vehicle" through which trade can be carried on with Iran outside the dollar zone thus outside the purview of the United States' sanctions, may well be the crossing of a red line.

One of the major reasons deciding that the time had come for a move against Iraq and Libya was each's intention to challenge the United States dollar's hegemony. Iraq was already selling oil that was not denominated in dollars (even as the sanctions regime was coming undone), and Libya was preparing to set up a pan-African development bank that would have pushed out of Africa the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (both run, de facto, by the United States from Washington), all backed by a new pan-African currency. Backed by the 144 tons of Libya's gold (which has disappeared), it would have rivaled the Swiss franc in stability and rapidly gained major international status as a trading and settlemet currency, to the great detriment of the United States dollar.

POST SCRIPTVM

If such a blitz attack is in the offing, then there is no longer any need for missile defenses in Jordan, Bahrein and Kuweit since -- the Cakewalkers apparently assume -- the intensity of the attack would mean that nothing from Iran will get out of the country, thus, in short order, there will be nothing left in Iran to defend against any more.

The United States military has gone to great lengths to hide the danger of radioactive contamination from its use of uranium and depleted uranium weapons. Statements from the Pentagon indicate that they believe their own lies. (General Shalikashvili told me that depleted uranium is so harmless that we could put it on our ice cream and eat it -- and he sounded dead serious.) Thus, Bolton's announcement at the MeK conference at the end of last year that he and they will be in Teheran in 2019 to take over running the country likely does not take into account the contamination to be visited upon the country from the blitz, which will surely be carreid out using bunker busters, even the twenty-ton variety.

I rather doubt Iran would use depleted uranium for the same reason it declines to produce a nuclear weapon--its use is immoral. That's something Outlaw US Empire folk just can't comprehend.

Posted by: karlof1 | Sep 26, 2018 7:18:56 PM | 26

Explain then, please, what has happened to the nuclear waste. Every "expert" (some of them really experts) to whom I have put the question over the years, has had no answer. Nobody seems to be thinking about it, except those who are planning the attack.

Posted by: RJPJR | Sep 26, 2018 7:27:42 PM | 27

RJPJR @25--

The Outlaw US Empire and NATO both utilize depleted uranium weapons--all of which must be considered chemical weapons since they discharge uranium oxide gas upon detonation which is highly toxic and a carcinogen. I don't specifically know what Iran's doing with its spent fuel, although I believe it's sent to Russia for reprocessing. The IAEA certainly knows.

I don't even have to go the depleted uranium site you linked to know that the US is the biggest abuser of the substance by far but we have a commenter here that seems focused on what Iran may have doe with the paucity of it they may have produced, with no context in relation to empire amounts.

And then lets talk about cluster bombs which empire produces and uses as the war criminals they pretend not to be. I believe that I ran has signed the UN agreement about cluster bombs but the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia have not.

I believe that, actually, the enriched depleted uranium used in "DU" used in "anti-tank" shells is just about as enriched as the uranium-235 used in typical atom bombs. Think. They tell us the shells penetrate tanks, and the uranium then burns up, incinerating the interior. OK -- how much oxygen is contained inside a tank? Not much. Not enough.

Has anyone here actually tested one of these so-called "depleted" uranium shells? I think they are composed of bomb-grade U-235, and they produce small nuclear blasts when they strike solid objects.

Posted by: Grieved | Sep 26, 2018 11:16:03 PM | 35

@32 Blues

Nope.
It's called abrasive wear which causes degradation of the penetrator during impact and penetration.
This wear (up to 70% of the penetrator's mass) yields a cloud of micro- to nano-crystalline metal particles that are pyrophoric. Impact temperatures may reach up to 5000° centigrade which means that that 'metallic' cloud burns up instantly creating an ultra hot fireball.

That leaves us with how much oxygen for combustion is available in a tank? Well, I don't know but think ~3 cubic meters of air is a fair bet (that represents a tiny cube with 1.44 m lateral length). If so, then 3 m³ of standard air contain about 0.81 kg of oxygen (~ 25 mol O2).
If we further assume all O2 is to be consumed by the DU particles forming UO2 (not necessarily only UO2 but lets stick to this compound for arguments sake) then 25 mols of O2 (in a tank with 3 m³ air space) are sufficient for combustion of close to 6 kg of U.

Fission reaction during impact and penetration? No, impossible even with high grade U235.

Posted by: Hmpf | Sep 27, 2018 12:05:18 AM | 36

NO. It's not just for show. Trump tore up the Iran deal, he's imposing severe sanctions on Iran trying to cripple Iran's economy after Iran barely survived the sanctions prior to the deal, and there are psy-ops operations and meddling on the ground happening to turn the Iranian people against their government. This isn't just lip service he's paying those Saudi and Zionist goons and criminals; these are provocative reasons for inciting war.

Trump is after Iran and Venezuela, not coincidentally major energy producers; he could care less about the Venezuelan and Iranian people he claims to care about and he said categorically -- ALL OPTIONS ARE ON THE TABLE with these two. North Korea that actually has nukes he doesn't give a shet about; he's ready to kiss Kim on both cheeks to get a Nobel prize like his nemesis Obama -- so,NK -- now THAT'S all show, but Iran and Venezuela, not so much. He's making hostile moves like the Zionist thug he really is.

james @28--

I wrote an answer to your question: Why Iran, but it appears it was eaten by The Cloud. I'll try to reassemble it as follows:

Along with the reasons for the 1953 coup, and as with Korea and Vietnam before it, Iran presents what Chomsky called the Threat of a Good Example quite different from the Outlaw US Empire dominated System through Iran's development and deployment of an Islamic Socialist System that's in fact democratic and quite responsive to Iran's citizens instead of International Finance. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed recently wrote an item "US military document reveals how the West opposed a democratic Syria" published by Le Monde diplomatique (linking to it may be the reason it was eaten, so I'll provide another route to the article) showing Iran was always the goal, not Syria, which demonstrates the depth of planning done that Russia's intervention destroyed. Take note of what BigLie Media and its governmental stooges target about Iran--its governmental system and its economy, which includes its nuclear and defense industries. Both are highly resilient and have worked well despite almost 40 years of strangulation sanctions. (Imagine how dynamic the Iranian Islamic Republic would be if it was allowed to freely develop.) Its Islamic model would be hailed and emulated throughout the Umma, and such an example the Outlaw US Empire cannot allow to exist.

Of course this is possible.

Look:

IT HAS NOT BEEN ONLY JUST 1,000 enriched uranium bombshells that have exploded in the Middle East! It has been more like 100,000+++. BUT THERE HAVE NEVER THAT MANY TANKS!!! These nuclear bombs explode when they hit boulders and buildings too. And that is where 99% of the 100,000+++ have detonated.

So... Why did these nuclear bombs continue to be used after all of the tanks had been exploded?
