Eye for an Eye: UK Caught as Trump's "Useful Idiot" in Dangerous Iran Policy

Mish Talk 23-07-2019

The UK fell for a US trap when it seized an Iranian ship on July 4. Iran struck back last Friday.

Useful Idiots

Eurointelligence provides interesting commentary of tit-for-tat ship seizures first by the UK, then by Iran in response.
The extraordinary story behind the capture of the British-flagged oil tanker Stena Impero is a cautionary tale on many levels. It has the potential of turning into a major diplomatic calamity for both the UK and the EU.
Simon Tisdall tells the story in the Observer that this confrontation was masterminded by none other than John Bolton, Donald Trump’s national security adviser. Several weeks ago, US intelligence services tracked an Iranian oil vessel headed for the Mediterranean, bound for a refinery in Syria. The Grace 1 sailed under a Panama flag. As it was too big for the Suez Canal, it undertook the longer journey from Iran around Cape Horn and up the Atlantic towards Spain. Washington alerted the Spanish government 48 hours before the tanker was due to enter the Strait of Gibraltar, but without giving any details that the ship might be in breach of US sanctions. The Spanish Navy escorted the ship but took no action at the time. Spain later said it would have intervened if it had been given information that the ship was in breach of US sanctions.
Bolton instead tipped off the British, who felt compelled to intercept the Grace I as it entered the Strait of Gibraltar on July 4, dispatching a force of 30 marines who stormed the ship.
The US managed to accomplish three things at the same time: escalating the conflict with Iran; dividing the Europeans by pitching the UK against Spain, which distanced itself from the UK manoeuvre off Gibraltar; and turning the UK once again into the useful idiot of US diplomacy. Not bad for a few days' work. But it is also a clear indication of the EU's total lack of preparedness to deal with a hostile Trump administration.
Unsurprisingly, the EU’s response is divided. Spain is furious about the UK’s unilateral action in international waters off the Spanish coast. The EU’s external-action service, soon to be headed by Josep Borrell, Spain’s foreign minister, is silent. Germany and France are backing the UK - at least diplomatically - for now. Russia, Japan and China are with Iran. They do not want to risk oil supplies.

Dangerous Trap

The Guardian comments How Trump’s Arch-Hawk Lured Britain Into a Dangerous Trap to Punish Iran

Bolton’s delighted reaction suggested the seizure was a surprise. But accumulating evidence suggests the opposite is true, and that Bolton’s national security team was directly involved in manufacturing the Gibraltar incident. The suspicion is that Conservative politicians, distracted by picking a new prime minister, jockeying for power, and preoccupied with Brexit, stumbled into an American trap.
In short, it seems, Britain was set up. As a result, Britain has been plunged into the middle of an international crisis it is ill-prepared to deal with.
Much of this angst could have been avoided. Britain opposed Trump’s decision to quit the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, the trigger for today’s crisis. It has watched with alarm as the Trump-Bolton policy of “maximum pressure”, involving punitive sanctions and an oil embargo, has radicalised the most moderate Iranians.
Yet even as Britain backed EU attempts to rescue the nuclear deal, Theresa May and Jeremy Hunt, foreign secretary, tried to have it both ways – to keep Trump sweet.

Eye for an Eye

The Financial Times comments on the ‘Eye for Eye’ Ideology Behind Iran’s Seizure of UK Tanker.
Eye for eye and hand for hand is our Islamic ideology. An American eye or a European hand are not more valuable than an Iranian eye or hand,” said Mohammad-Sadegh Javadi-Hesar, a reformist politician.


Nothing But War Will Do

Bolton wants war. Nothing less will do.
To get it, he is willing to radicalize the Iranian moderates and trap allies into doing his immoral bidding.
I am sick of this administration's war policy and treatment of allies.

Why the hostility towards the Iran government?
Anglo-Persian Confrontation. Britain’s Impounding of Iran’s Grace Supertanker. Former UK Foreign Minister on Britain’s “Mistreatment of Iran”
By Stephen Lendman
Global Research, July 22, 2019
On Sunday, former Labor Foreign Secretary Jack Straw wrote a London Daily Mail op-ed on why Iranians will never trust Brits.
The same goes for their US counterparts Straw didn’t address in his opinion piece. More on this below.
On Monday, outgoing UK Prime Minister Teresa May is chairing a ministerial meeting to discuss Iran’s (legitimate) seizure of Britain’s Stena Impero.
It followed Britain’s July 4 maritime piracy, impounding Iran’s Grace 1 supertanker, reportedly bowing to Iranophobe John Bolton’s request, a foolhardy act, a UK miscalculation of Iranian resolve.
The bandit act was an example of how now-former UK envoy to Washington Kim Darroch described Trump regime actions on the world stage — calling them “diplomatic vandalism.”
It’s that and a whole lot more by GOP and Dem commanders-in-chief of the US war party and their accomplices — waging perpetual wars against nonbelligerent states threatening no one, abhorring peace and stability.
John Bolton likely represents this extremism more than any other high-level US official in memory. Straw called him “off the wall” when it comes to Iran.
He never met a sovereign independent country he didn’t want to bomb. He earlier called for military action on Iran and North Korea.
In a 2015 NYT op-ed, he headlined: “To Stop Iran’s Bomb, Bomb Iran,” falsely saying “Iran’s steady progress toward nuclear weapons has long been evident,” adding:
“The inescapable conclusion is that Iran will not negotiate away its nuclear program. Nor will sanctions block its building a broad and deep weapons infrastructure.”
“The inconvenient truth is that only military action like Israel’s 1981 attack on Saddam Hussein’s Osirak reactor in Iraq or its 2007 destruction of a Syrian reactor, designed and built by North Korea, can accomplish what is required.”

In an earlier article on the psychopathology of Trump’s geopolitical team, I stressed that he surrounded himself with monsters — headed by Bolton and Pompeo, a recklessly dangerous duo.
I quoted criminal psychology expert Robert Hare on Pompeo, applying as well to Bolton, saying:
They exhibit “dissocial personality disorder,” including “coldheartedness,” a “callous unconcern for the feelings of others,” a lack of remorse, shame or guilt, irresponsibility, an extremely high threshold for disgust, impulsiveness, emotional shallowness, “pathological lying,” a “grandiose sense of self-worth,” an incapacity for love, a “parasitic lifestyle,” among other abnormalities.
Their minds don’t work like normal people. They “con others for personal profit…pleasure,” and power over others they seek to dominate.

The Trump regime geopolitical team is run by a gang of recklessly dangerous psychopaths — threatening nations, their authorities, and people everywhere.
Judge them by their extremist rhetoric and actions on Iran, Venezuela, Russia, China, North Korea, and other nations — longstanding US policy calls for transforming into vassal states.
Britain’s Betrayal: Siding with Trump Against Iran
Preemptive wars are the favored strategy of America’s military, industrial, security, media complex, its members abhorring peace, stability, and the rule of law.
In his Sunday opinion piece, Straw said on an October 2015 holiday visit to Iran with his wife and friends, they were met by IGRC members.
Screenshot from Daily Mail Online
They presented Straw with a two-page petition, saying:
‘Although it is in our tradition as Iranians to welcome guests, this ‘welcome’ gesture does not apply to you!’ it began.”
‘The people of Iran do not have good memories about you and the British regime…‘You know better than us about the crimes and the ample plots that were orchestrated by your country against the people of this land.’ ”
“The document then set out in detail all the terrible things Britain had done to Iran, going back to the 1857 Treaty of Paris and the Anglo-Persian war,”
Straw added.

Hey Boris are you an "agentur" enemy within?
The demented, satanic masonic I Js and the criminal global government assholes want Israel and Iran to destroy each other. They want the false religious war to be escalated into a global war. You must know how batshit lunatic they are. They followed Pike's directions to the letter to date.

"The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the "agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Muslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time."
Albert Pike.

A person that wasn't a traitor within would call for muslims, christians and religious jews to unite against the illuminati such as those found in the Society of Jesus, black nobility, EU presidencies and in the US regime, Bilderberg steering, CoR, the UN, the obscenely wealthy, etc. Or face extinction.
NB The leaders of the islamic world are Turkey and Iran. Political zionism is Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Great Britain felt a need to top that. The members of the ruling party thus chose a clown to become the UK's next prime minister.
Johnson will bury the remnants of the former empire.
My sincere condolences to people of Britain.

But will he bury the 2nd British Empire, that where over 40% of Eurodollar clearing settlements are made, the City of London? Without skimming this the UK would be ever so poor.

Boris Johnson’s ascension to power in UK is just a clown act in a tragic circus. But a circus nonetheless. A none-story. A nothingburger.
I implore you to stay focused on Jeffery Epstein. That is the real story of our time. One that could bring down AIPAC/Israel and all of its’ spies, the Clintons, Trump, and certain elements of the deep state once and for all, and free US from the shackles of Zionism.

Israel's Agents of Influence
Trips to Israel, a “Nationalism Conference,” Epstein and more

Philip Giraldi Unz reviewJuly 23, 2019

Some journalists in the Jewish media are starting to complain that President Donald Trump is “loving Israel” just a little too much since he keeps citing his concern for the Jewish state as the driving force behind some of his erratic behavior. It is a viewpoint that I most definitely share, though I would describe the apparent White House lovefest with the Israel as a “lot too much.” When the President of the United States calls a congresswoman an anti-Semite and demands that she apologize to him personally and also to Israel it is definitely a lot too much.

So Israel is always in the news, or so it seems, though it is often not in the news when the story might be derogatory. The story disappears from sight as soon as it is determined that Israel might be involved, as is currently the case with Jeffrey Epstein, or Israeli activity is excised completely as was the case with the Mueller investigation where Russiagate should have really been called Israelgate as it was Israel that was seeking favors from the incoming Trump Administration, not Russia. As Noam Chomsky put it, Israeli interference in American politics “vastly overwhelms” anything Russia has done.

I have recently written about how the Jewish state works hard to brainwash the American people and limit the foreign policy options of the U.S. government, to include aggressive efforts to obtain what the intelligence agencies would call “agents of influence.” Agents of influence live and work in one country while simultaneously and treacherously advancing the interests of another nation. It is what George Washington warned about in his Farewell Address when he counseled “Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government.”

Foreign influence as a potential national security threat is also a status defined in legal terms by the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938 (FARA), which requires anyone working on behalf of a foreign government to register and make transparent sources of income.

Uniquely, no foundation or individual working in America to advance the interests of the Jewish state has ever been required to register under FARA even though many, like the odious American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), boast unambiguously on their websites that they are “America’s pro-Israel Lobby.” Many of the foundations are regarded as educational or charitable 501(c)3 tax exempt non-profits, which means the U.S. taxpayer is helping support their activity. But being a non-profit charity does not necessarily mean austerity, as the salaries of top employees are generous. Canadian Jew Mark Dubowitz of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD), a 501(c)3, is paid $560,000 in salary and benefits. FDD has for many years been calling for war against Iran.

The most recent foundation being set up by Israel’s friends to promote the interests of the Jewish state is the Edmund Burke Foundation, which hosted a conference on “Nationalism” last week. The conference was interesting in that the Burke Foundation is headed by an Israeli and an American Jew who has served as Executive Director of the Christians United For Israel (CUFI). The event was held at the Washington D.C. Ritz-Carlton, suggesting that the Burkeans are not short of cash. Pro-Israel groups always seem to have plenty of Benjamins.

A number of traditional conservatives and even some organizations were fooled by the promotional material and speakers’ list into thinking that the program was legitimate and would focus on supporting national interests as well as foreign policy restraint, but some at least had their eyes opened when John Bolton, as featured speaker, was vigorously applauded by at least half of the audience.

Public funded zionist operation. The BBC
Why the BBC Acts as a Propaganda Outlet for Israel– An Insider View
“The BBC is institutionally pro-Zionist and institutionally spineless” says former BBC senior editor.

Gilad Atzmon July 14, 2019

The BBC’s Panorama channel ‘investigation’ into Labour’s ‘anti-Semitism’ was so blatantly one sided its broadcast as ‘news’ demanded an explanation. In an attempt to grasp why the British national broadcaster fails to fulfil its core mission to report the news in as unbiased a manner as possible, I interviewed a former senior editor for the BBC. The editor, a 35 year veteran of the BBC, reveals the culture that has steered the BBC into its present position as a Zionist mouthpiece.
In acting as a whistle blower, the former editor risks severe consequences. In Britain leading journalists have been locked behind bars and put under threat of extradition for reporting information whose truthfulness has not even been challenged.
Sadly, this danger is heightened under the present toxic political atmosphere in Britain, as demonstrated by its purging of a major political party and its tolerance for abuse of its judicial system to deter and punish anyone who dares to question the Zionist narrative.
Q: When did the BBC become openly biased?
A: The BBC has always been biased towards Israel, and its bias has been well documented. The reasons for this bias have long been the subject of serious academic studies, the best known of which is Greg Philo’s and Mike Berry’s More Bad News from Israel. In fact, in 2006 an independent report commissioned by the BBC’s own governing body concluded that the BBC’s coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict “does not consistently constitute a full and fair account of the conflict but rather, in important respects, presents an incomplete and in that sense misleading picture.”
Q: Who and what drove this cultural and political direction within the corporation?
A: There are a number of drivers behind this biased BBC culture. The most important is the fact that a small number of hardline Zionists occupy key positions at the top and middle levels of the corporation, as well as at the shop-floor level, by which I mean the people who select what to publish or broadcast on a daily basis and who provide editorial steer to journalists. This has been widely publicised and has been in the public domain for some time — see, for example, this http://tinyurl.com/ydhjzeek , these (a) http://tinyurl.com/y7mjtkc6 , (b) http://tinyurl.com/y7k39vsh , and (c) http://tinyurl.com/y3x9nktl .

Russia, Ukraine Agree on Comprehensive Ceasefire in Donbass
Forward movements banned, heavy weapons must be pulled back

Jason Ditz Antiwar.com July 22, 2019

A deal negotiated last week and put into effect on Sunday, Russia and Ukraine have negotiated, along with Europe’s OSCE, a comprehensive ceasefire in Donbass (Eastern Ukraine). The deal intends to extend the ceasefire indefinitely.
The deal is being negotiated by Russia on behalf of Ukraine’s eastern separatist movement, and obliges both sides to move heavy weaponry away from the front line, as well as banning attacks and attempts at forward movement by either side.
OSCE officials say this deal, with its open-ended term, is going much further than previous ones, and followed with a joint statement from Russia and Ukraine. This commits both sides more fully to abiding by the deal.
This is particularly important because in the past, smaller factions on both sides have felt entitled to simply ignore the deals, arguing they weren’t personally party to the pact. With both governments committed, dishonoring the pact comes at a much bigger price.
The civil war in East Ukraine has been ongoing for five years, though in state of ceasefires for most of it. The rebellion in Western Ukraine, which ousted a pro-Russia government, led to harsh measures against ethnic Russians who living in the east, and fueled calls for them to separate into an autonomous region or outright independent nation.
A lesson that falls on rabid western deaf ears. Humans first.

Iran Promises to Secure Strait of Hormuz for Oil Shipping
Iranian officials urge a return to diplomacy in talks with France

Jason Ditz Antiwar.com July 23, 2019

There’s a lot of concern around the Strait of Hormuz right now after a British tanker was seized by Iran, a reciprocal move for Britain seizing an Iranian tanker near Gibraltar. Iran, however, is trying to calm the situation.
On Tuesday, Iranian officials were quick to promise that they will ensure the security of the Strait of Hormuz, and that they won’t allow any disturbance to the shipment of oil out of the Persian Gulf.
The assurance was offered to French FM Jean-Yves Le Drian, and came with Iran also urging an effort to return to diplomacy. Iran and France have been trying to settle on a new round of nuclear program and sanctions relief talks for awhile.
Iranian Deputy FM Abbas Araqchi conveyed the message, and later met with President Macron during his visit to Paris. Iranian officials said the two both agreed on the importance of getting back to diplomacy.
Whom was May serving when she detained the iranian tanker in Gib, pissing off the spanish as well as the iranians? Bolton? Certainly not Britain that she has f*cked over so thoroughly.

House Overwhelmingly Passes Anti-BDS Bill
Still unclear if Rep. Omar's pro-BDS bill will get a vote
Jason Ditz Antiwar.com July 23, 2019

In a 398-17 vote, the House of Representatives on Tuesday passed H. Res 246, a bill which expresses opposition to the BDS movement targeting Israel. The language of the bill presents BDS as contrary to US policy, and claims that BDS is harmful to the two-state solution that the US supports.
BDS, which stands for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions, is a campaign founded to try to pressure Israel over the occupation of Palestine, The intention was to apply economic pressure on Israel for certain activities with respect to the occupation.
While boycotting countries over behavior isn’t that unusual, the US government’s pro-Israel bias meant that in 1977, the US started passing laws trying to prevent American citizens and companies from specifically participating in BDS against Israel, forming the Office of Antiboycott Compliance.
In the past couple of years, Israel has sought to attack BDS on a global scale by present it as de facto anti-Semitism. As usual, US officials were eager to get on the record with being very anti-BDS, even if these bills don’t formally outlaw participating in the BDS on an individual level.

The cleanup of the Khazarian satanist infection of the U.S. body politic took a dramatic new turn last week when the U.S. House of Representatives voted to broadcast live the tribunals taking place now in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and elsewhere.
Pentagon sources described these hearings as “Nuremberg 2.0” and said the U.S. Department of Defense is installing cameras at various bases to broadcast the ongoing military tribunals. The tribunals have started opening the over 110,000 sealed indictments from across the U.S., they say.
We are also now finding out that Jeffrey Epstein, the Mossad pedophile blackmailer, was both a member of the Committee on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission.
Since these organizations were created by the Rockefeller family, it looks like Epstein was their servant.
“The Zionists are panicking because the Jewish Federal Prosecutor for the Southern District of New York, Geoffrey Berman, and the Jewish Federal Judge Richard Berman [we do not know if they are related] appointed by Bill Clinton did not recuse, but denied $100M bail to Mossad’s Epstein,” the Pentagon sources note.
Prosecutor Berman agreed in November 2018 to present a petition by the Lawyers Committee for 9/11 to a grand jury. From Wikipedia: The petition outlines certain 9/11 related federal crimes committed within the Southern District of New York, including that the World Trade Center (WTC), the Twin Towers (WTC1 and WTC2), and WTC Building 7 (WTC7) collapsed on 9/11 due to the detonation of pre-planted explosives and/or incendiaries.
The prosecution of probable Rockefeller agent Epstein, together with the investigations of 9/11, are connected to an international effort to finally bankrupt…

UKC failed to mention Boris Johnson stated on LBC radio, that he's a passionate ZIONIST, supporter of Israel & believes it should exist. Same traitor puppet as Treason May was, from the same mold. UK is clearly under Zionist occupation!

Excerpt from Questions for Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt
by Lord James of Blackheath
UKC 27 June 2019
The only certain way of a clean Brexit, unless its very threat should encourage some better concessions from the European Commission, would be to go for a complete No Deal Brexit on 31 October. This would have the effect of blocking or terminating virtually all of the hazards which I will outline on the basis that British citizens will wish to know how far taking back control can be taken to ensure the restored integrity and permanence of our Constitutional rights which have already been so severely damaged by our existing membership and the Treaty of Lisbon dated 13 December 2007 as already occurred; also the protection of the independence of our own internal and international security alliance upon our Armed Forces and the ability to resist the further interference and imposition of impending and imminent further strictures to be placed upon us by the European Commission relating to fiscal and monetary control and conduct of our legal and court processes.
Why has the Constitution got anything to do with this?
This is a huge question. We need to recall that Britain is governed by a Constitutional Monarchy which means that the entire government of the country and the making of its laws and conduct of its courts are all the absolute right and authority of the reigning Monarch. On Accession to the throne each new monarch gives a life-long undertaking to place their entire power of government exclusively into the hands of the elected people i.e. the Government. This power given to the Government is omniscient in exercising the power to govern and may do so ever as it wishes with one single exception. This exception is that no Government has the power to reduce or diminish its own omniscience. And Government seriously breached this overriding command when it agreed to the signing of the Treaty of Lisbon in 2007 because it took away the UK Government’s right of veto on any decisions passed down by the European Commission. According to our Constitution, Parliament (House of Commons and House of Lords) should have intervened later to reverse the diminution of the government’s power and has never done so, which means in turn, that we have left Our Sovereign Lady Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in breach of Her power to maintain the ultimate, absolute authority of Parliament as confirmed in Her Coronation Oath.
“Taking back control” should be seen to repair that damage once and for all so that we might eliminate completely a risk that the Sovereign would feel obliged to abdicate in accordance with Her broken oath and this in turn would preclude any succession to the throne as the same consideration would apply to any new Sovereign.
Our Constitution also ensures the UK Government has the power to issue all appropriate laws and to ensure that these are applied and conducted through the proper Court authorities. The European Commission believes that it alone should control laws throughout the EU and that our courts and legal proceedings should be subordinate to their ruling.
“Taking back control” by a No Deal break would ensure the continued integrity and authority of our Constitution by protecting the Monarchy, sustaining the authority of our Parliamentary process and allowing for the continuation of justice and compliance for the laws of the land none of which could be achieved or restored unless we have an absolute and clean break from the European Commission as in No Deal Brexit. 27th June 2019
If we do get to Brexit on 31 October will this truly achieve “taking back control”, as the original referendum intended?
The answer here does depend on which sort of Brexit we end up with:
Studiously avoids the T word. That aside, astute observations.

Hopefully Epstein's records will nail some luciferian sacks of shit in high office this side of the pond. E.g. Blair, Heath, Jenkins et al.

May and earlier harmful societal eruptions have been communising Britain by stealth, common purpose etc. For the love of lucifer and its neocons.
Russia has been christianised.

Will Boris halt the communisation, else admit to being just another sack?

Thought on Benjamin's report
D. Rockefeller was a Pilgrim (a US and GB gang figureheaded by Mrs Windsor). If spawn of the beast Epstein was a Rockefeller maid then he also served the Pilgrims. And Mrs Windsor.

Were common purpose moles taught properly?
Do remainers' actions and activities fall under any of these categories?

Sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that tends toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent towards, or resistance against lawful authority.
Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sedition

Subversion refers to a process by which the values and principles of a system in place are contradicted or reversed, an attempt to transform the established social order and its structures of power, authority, hierarchy, and norm.

Treason definition, the offense of acting to overthrow one's government or to harm or kill its sovereign.

If the EU regime was a street corporation, its board would be in jail.
It is a criminal operation. Provably.

Treason. The betrayal of one's own country by waging war against it or by consciously or purposely acting to aid its enemies.
