Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Blames Iran For Attacks On Two Japanese Oil Tankers

UPDATE: Watch this Israel lobbyist openly call for a false flag attack to justify a war with Iran.

I’m assuming these two things are related.


New York Times:

“TOKYO — Shinzo Abe’s visit to Iran this week, the first to that country by a Japanese prime minister in more than 40 years, is the latest in a series of high-minded but long-shot efforts to lift Japan’s influence on the global stage.

Mr. Abe, who flew to Tehran on Wednesday, is putting himself in the middle of a confrontation between the United States and Iran that has raised fears of war.

The tensions, which began with President Trump’s decision to pull out of the 2015 nuclear accord and impose crippling sanctions, escalated recently as the Trump administration moved additional troops into the Persian Gulf after having accused Iran of plotting to attack American targets. …”


New York Times:

“LONDON — Explosions crippled two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday in what the United States called attacks by Iran, raising alarms about immediate security and potential military conflict in a vital passageway for a third of the world’s petroleum.

The explosions forced the crews of both vessels to evacuate and left at least one ablaze, and hours later the causes were still under investigation. Yet the backdrop of steeply rising threats between President Trump and Iranian leaders gave the stricken ships a grave significance even before the facts became clear.

By afternoon, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that American intelligence agencies had concluded Tehran was behind the disabling of both ships. Without providing specific evidence, he pointed to the weapons used, the expertise and resources required and the similarity to other recent attacks attributed to Iran.

“Taken as a whole, these unprovoked attacks present a clear threat to international peace and security,” he told a news conference in Washington.

Senior American officials have already blamed Iran for similar attacks last month against four tankers on the same waterway. Iranian officials, who denied any involvement in those attacks, also rejected assertions they were behind the events on Thursday and implied Iran had been framed. …”

This is just breathtaking.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is currently on a diplomatic mission in Iran to avert a destructive war between the United States and Iran. Japan and Iran have had cordial relations for decades. It just so happens that while Abe is visiting Iran that two Japanese oil tankers are attacked. Mike Pompeo announces at a press conference that American intelligence has concluded that Iran is behind “these unprovoked attacks.”

I mean … is anyone in the world except American “journalists” dumb enough to believe this war propaganda?

  1. This is a very dangerous situation. To those of us who are woke,this is pretty much a false flag thing. But, of course, the J-media is going to sell this nonsense HARD to the normies. Plus the fact that there is almost nobody among the political class who’ll countersignal the neocon narrative. It’s gonna’ be a weird summer, for sure.

  2. What do you even say at this point?


    Thankfully, we don’t have to protest this alone.

    It seems a lot of people are catching on.

    No need for everyone to name it.

    Just stop it.

  3. I suppose the next logical step will be for Blompf to send the destroyers USS Maddox and USS Turner Joy into the Persian Gulf.

  4. Get hold of fifty of the wealthiest Jewish financiers and you will put an end to all wars – Henry Ford

  5. This is why they are kicking all the Pro White dissidnts off YT. We are the only ones who are intelligent enough to know this is a false flag, and we are the only ones with the guts to tell the truth about it.

  6. The usual suspects, itching for war with Iran for many years, have been aggressively ramping up to this for several months. Then boom! It happens. How convenient.

    False flag.

    • Yep. Your typical Amerikan dumbo will fall for this BS. Iran has been demonized for so long, the rubes will just go along with it.

  7. What if this is an impeachment trap? Trump acquiesces to the Cabal and agrees to a false flag, then a whistleblower suddenly appears on the media with a recording of the dirty deal.


  8. The only reason you stick someone like Boris Johnson into No10 is to start a war with Johnny Turk.

    Only the Guardian in the U.K. is currently front paging the (((Frogman Attack))) on these Oil Tankers and the others are talking about BoJo’s haircut.

    There’s going to be a war.
