Commentary & Analysis

US units exiting Iraq deployed in Jordan to forestall Syrian attack

US 1st Brigade departs Iraq

As the US completes its final withdrawal from Iraq, American special forces troops have been diverted to positions in  Jordan opposite a Syrian tank concentration building up across the kingdom’s northern border, DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources report.
As of last Thursday, as of last Thursday Dec. 8, military convoys, air transports and helicopters have been lifting US troops across the border from Iraq. They have been deployed in position to ward off a possible Syrian invasion in the light of President Bashar Assad’s warning that he would set the entire Middle East on fire if the pressure on his regime to step down persisted.

The Iranian Army Says It Will ‘Practice’ Shutting Down The Strait Of Hormuz

For those of you what follow this Blog you will see that my assessment of the Iranian closing the Straights of Hormuz, in the event of war, is a very real scenario.  I have been carping about this very thing for months and now, it is a reality, as the Iranians are conducting war games that will mimic this.  We see from the headline link above that the Iranians know that closing Hormuz may tumble the already fragile global markets into a free fall.  About 40% of the world’s oil comes through Hormuz and the Iranians border it to the North.   This latest saber rattling by the Iranians really doesn’t surprise me and I have been expecting something of the sort for a while now.

Let’s move over to Jordan.  We see that Exiting US troops are now being deployed, with King Abdullah of Jordan’s permission, on the Jordanian/Syrian border.  What we are seeing is the positioning of troops and equipment that happens before an all out war.  Please note that Abdullah is all over this, and I have stated my belief that Abdullah will emerge as a peace maker and world statesman when all of this is over.  (We will have to wait and see if I’m right on this one.)

President Bashar ASsad of Syria has recently armed his conventional missiles with chemical war heads.  (I posted commentary about this yesterday.)

Here are some dynamics to consider:

1. Russian Warships are docked in Syrian ports and in fact have given the Syrian over 1 million gas masks.  Not to mention strategic military support.

2. In retaliation for the Russian ships, US forces countered this by moving the George H. W. Bush aircraft carrier into the regions.

3.  Hezbollah, who is entrenched in Lebanon,  has also retrofitted rockets, some perhaps with chemical warheads.

4. Last year Israel issued gas masks to all of its citizens. When Syria announced that it would use chemical weapons against Israel – this was a story that I blogged on months ago – Israel responded by saying that, we will annihilate Damascus. Isaiah 17, anyone?

5. HAMAS, has armed itself with stinger missiles from Moamar Ghadaffi’s collapsed regime.

6.  Iran gets closer on a daily basis to procuring its first nuke.  Meanwhile our “commander-in-chief” politely asks if he can get the drone that the Iranians captured last week, back?  Please, how pathetic is that?

In closing todays post: When we add to this development in the Middle East, the instability of the global financial markets, combined with the ongoing natural disasters, with the very real concept that there are dark Luciferian forces at work – think the Mystery of iniquity here – we get a toxic brew, never before seen on this planet.  In the end it will lead us into the Time of Jacob’s trouble – Not Bob, Fred or Ernie’s trouble  – and then finally our King will return.  This is our blessed hope… when you see these things begin to happen – all of what I just listed – look up because our redemption is coming!


Watchers 3 is now shipping!

Undecided about what to give this holiday season?  Why not the Watchers series as it will get people thinking!

I watched Watchers 3, when I got home…it was well done and very informative and a good job…. 
I was especially intrigued by the Shroud and Hopi discussion ….. maybe Stan Deyo will tells us more what was said to him in Watchers 4.  
Keep up the good work…it seems every Watchers series that comes out is better than the previous. 
Again, keep up the good work. Thanks.

    • It’s interesting that he’s saying “Obama will not pull the trigger”. Every time he said that I was reminded that Obama has won the Nobel peace prize. It feels like he was given that prize back then so that it would hold him back from “getting involved” in the future.

    • Thanks for sharing that video. Lots of information on the drone. I was watching a video of Maliki and Obama’s press conference. When Obama spoke of asking for the drone back, his face expression changed. Anyone catch that? I’ve heard of micro expressions made popular by the show “Lie To Me.” But it seemed strange like he was happy about it. Anyone here know how to read body language?

    • I’m watching the press conference now. Haven’t gotten to the part about the drone yet but he just finished saying “The United States will never waver in defence of our allies”. That’s interesting. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

  1. Usually, I think that who-ever throws the first punch wins. But, I’m theorizing that Israel will allow itself to be attacked first…Then, “take out” whatever is a threat to them.

    Prime target would be The Dome of the Rock…Syria gets the blame for that.

    Maybe our Drone was landed in Iran on purpose? That’s another Prime Target of importance. We’re probably still sending Drones on spy missions over Iran, and haven’t stopped those activities.

    What really ticks me off, is that the MSM hasn’t said anything about this huge “Mexican Standoff”!

    Possibly, Sryia won’t do anything until Hanakuh time…Next Week.

    • Hi ‘said,

      I was thinnking the same thing, but with a twist. Send a cruise misslie to the gps coordinates that the drone
      is sending back. BOOM!!! Lets send em a suprise.

      Things are really heating up in the middle east and thank you L.A. for keeping us informed, as the lame stream
      media sure doesn’t. The big news of the day ….Lindsay Lohan is out again …no in again…no wait out again
      ARGHHHH!!! Keep people in the dark and unaware.

  4. This move to move US troops in the region could allow for us to get further involved. If the US troops get attacked and some are wounded or killed there could be an outcry. Either wanting payback or complete removal from the area. If it is the second it could bolster the arab’s false bravado into thinking we would not come to the aid of Israel.

  5. I can just imagine O saying “Would you please give our spy drone back?” Pretty please…….

    Who does he think he’s dealing w/here? The U.S. is spying over Iran territory & they would give the implement of spying back?

    Are we in a cartoon world here or what? Unless, it’s a ploy to make the U.S. look like imbecles.


    Imbecile is a term for moderate to severe mental retardation, as well as for a type of criminal. It arises from the Latin word imbecillus, meaning weak, or weak-minded. “Imbecile” was once applied to people with an IQ of 26-50, between “moron” (IQ of 51-70) and “idiot” (IQ of 0-25).

    The term was further refined into mental and moral imbecility.[1][2] The concepts of “moral insanity,” “moral idiocy,” and “moral imbecility,” led to the emerging field of eugenic criminology, which held that crime can be reduced by preventing “feeble-minded” people from reproducing.[3]

    “Imbecile” as a concrete classification was popularized by psychologist Henry H. Goddard[4] and was used in 1927 by United States Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. in his landmark ruling in the forced-sterilization case Buck v. Bell.

    The term is closely associated with psychology, psychiatry, criminology, and eugenics. The term imbecile quickly passed into vernacular usage as a derogatory term, and fell out of professional use in the 20th century.

    • Thanks! I was a psych major in the late 60s and had completely put those definitions out of mind! LOL, guess it was because I then had all those little boys and worried more about terms like “criminal genius” but they have all grown up to be fine men!
      Anyhow, so true that moral imbecility is what seems to be the rampant problem now!

  6. No matter what we see brothers & sisters, remember that the Restrainer is still restraining. Our Father is in complete control, so do not be anxious, but remember that God is in control. And the peace that surpasses understanding will guard your hearts & minds in Christ Jesus.



  8. So Iran closes the Straight of Hormuz – big deal. The US Navy opens it back up again in a matter of hours and kicks Iran to the side.

    • They don’t even need a dirty bomb. one conventional surface to sea missile (of which iran has many) into the side of an oil tanker or two sets that straight ablaze for months. Over 30 tankers a day pass through that straight. Two tankers is as much oil as spilled in the BP lol spill.

  9. Please pray for Neil G. and John W. who are under the influence of the spirits and beliefs of the new age movement. Following is a testimony of a former new ager who is now a Christian.

  10. The US should put greater emphasis on the costs that Iran would almost
    surely bear in the wake of any closure attempt to the Strait Of Hormuz. Unless the Iranians were able to convince the world that it was an act essential for self-defense, closure could very well inflame opinion widely against them. Closing the strait would be seen not only as a serious violation of international norms but also one that directly and significantly touches the interests of most countries, virtually making it a campaign of piracy…. Even countries ready to accept Iran’s right to retaliate against some offense would find it hard to forgive a response so indiscriminately damaging.
    Under these circumstances, the United States could have wide latitude for action.
    U.S. leaders might take the opportunity to leave Iran not only greatly impoverished through a loss of oil revenues and massive destruction of critical infrastructure but stripped of its naval and air defenses……. U.S. forces would probably need to seize the Iranian-held islands lying near the shipping lanes east of the strait, and they would not likely be returned, unless of course Obama is still in office. . Given the geographic isolation of the region near the strait from the rest of Iran, it is even conceivable that this area might be held under occupation, and the residue of suspicion and resentment against Iran would surely linger among those who suffered losses from the closure, prompting support for a tight sanctions regime.
    The outcome might very well be, Iran would find itself essentially in the same position as Iraq after the 1991 Gulf War, if not worse. Such a prospect might sober even the most adventurous or desperate of Iranian leaders.

    • Iran is no dummy and evil always works with justification, even if that justification is manufactured and often times self delusional. I suspect they will keep provoking Israel, until Israel strikes first on Iran’s nuclear facilities. Then Iran will bring the world to their knees economically through trade route terrorism (let’s call it, for lack of a better term).

    • Also, I suspect the countries that Iran and its sycophants would not want to upset because of their muddling affairs will most likely be taken care of through alternate oil delivery channels. Earlier this year, Russia has opened a pipeline to China. To add insult to injury, Russia will probably cease oil delivery to Europe or probably more accurately the oil line to Europe will have an “accident” through sabotage or terrorism. Venezuela and Russia will take up the slack for any others outside the straight of hormuz. This is why the relationship between iran and Venezuela was so crucial. Iran also has a small outlet to the ocean, so they can ship some of their own oil even though its sour crude.

      All the while our politicians in Washington keep tieing the noose around our neck by opposing every pipeline that might help us get off of our dependency on foreign oil.

  11. The drone situation is driving me crazy.How did it get there and why didn’t its self-destruct abilities kick in? It would be neat if it was a decoy that blew up when they started to take it apart like the explosion at the nuclear site earlier that wiped everything out. I don’t trust Obama at all, I believe he has a hand in everything and is here to at least help usher in the tribulation period. Mr. Marzulli, are you going to continue with the Watchers series indefinitely? I have all three, and no one has any dvds like it! Thanks
