U.N. Officials Say U.S. Planning ‘Tactical Assault’ on Iran As Trump Sends More Troops to Middle East
by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:
President Donald Trump is sending 1,000 additional US troops to the Middle East as several UN officials told the Hebrew-language only Israeli newspaper Maariv that the US “plans to carry out a tactical assault on Iran in response to the tanker attack in the Persian Gulf on Thursday.”
From ABC News:
The United States is sending 1,000 additional troops to the Middle East, amid rising tensions between the U.S. and Iran. The decision follows last week’s attack on two tankers in the Gulf of Oman that the U.S. blamed on Tehran, with the Pentagon releasing new images on Monday that officials said show Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) members removing an unexploded mine from one of the ship’s hulls.

Does the President of the United States, or Her Majesty’s Secret Service and her Tory accomplices, hold the power to launch cyberwar, and even thermonuclear war?
Multiple news outlets followed the New York Times report of June 15 with stories proclaiming that the Pentagon’s U.S. Cyber Command has expanded offensive cyber attacks on Russia’s power grid and other infrastructure targets. At a Wall Street Journal seminar on Tuesday, June 11, the loud-mouthed warmonger, National Security Adviser John Bolton, proclaimed that this expanded warfare regime was in existence. This was followed by the Times story reported Saturday citing sources within the U.S. Cyber Command and the National Security Council. All the stories proclaim that President Donald Trump has not been briefed on this and that information concerning these warfare measures is deliberately being kept from him because he might countermand it.

Buried in their hubris and a false sense of superiority, the global elite actually believes they can roll over Russia and reduce it to a neoliberal vassal state. This illusion may soon result in war and the destruction of civilization.
On Saturday, The New York Times reported the US Cyber Command “is reportedly going on offense against Russia’s power grid by placing ‘potentially crippling malware’ in its systems.
by Caitlin Johnstone, Caitlin Johnstone:
The New York Times has published an anonymously sourced report titled “U.S. Escalates Online Attacks on Russia’s Power Grid” about the “placement of potentially crippling malware inside the Russian system at a depth and with an aggressiveness that had never been tried before” which could potentially “plunge Russia into darkness or cripple its military,” with one anonymous official reporting that “We are doing things at a scale that we never contemplated a few years ago.”
