Iran and U.S. Tension Heats Up; Iranian Navy Holds Massive Drill (Video)

(Before It's News)

Last year, the Obama administration entered into a nuclear deal with Iran, ostensibly opening up a new era of US-Iran relationships. Well, with the latest Trump administration, it looks like things are heating up again and the nuclear deal may be in jeopardy. The Trump administration has stepped up its rhetoric against Iran with President Trump tweeting that “Iran is playing with fire” after the Republic’s ballistic missile test at the end of January.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the implications behind Iran’s large-scale military naval drills in the Strait of Hormuz. Iran seems hell bent on testing the ‘red line’ drawn up by the Trump administration and if they push too far, the consequences could be devastating.

Here’s the billion-dollar question: Is there something motivating the tension that the media isn’t telling people? You bet there is!

Your News Wire reports:

Iran has staged a large scale military drill over a 2 million sq. kilometre area along the country’s southeastern coast.

The final phase of operation “Velayat-e 95” began Sunday, with Iranian naval forces staging war games from the mouth of the Persian Gulf to the north of the Indian Ocean.

It comes at a time when U.S. President Donald Trump has put Iran “on notice” by telling the Islamic Republic to stop “playing with fire,” while U.S. naval deployment has been concentrated more on dealing with China.

Zero Hedge reports:

Iran’s annual exercises will be held in the Strait of Hormuz, the Gulf of Oman, the Bab el-Mandab and northern parts of the Indian Ocean, to train in the fight against terrorism and piracy, Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said, quoted by Reuters. Today’s drill marks the last phase of war games that started in 2016, Iran’s Tasnim news agency reported. The exercise, codenamed ‘Velayat 95’, kicked off in Iran’s south following an order from Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari.

Apart from the main drills, Iran’s Navy commando units are conducting special operations in the southeastern Makran region. Last June, Sayyari said that Tehran was planning to carry out 20 military drills before March 2017. Iranian officials insist that the war games do not violate the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) – the nuclear deal between Iran and the Group 5+1 signed in January of 2016.

The UN nuclear watchdog said on Saturday that Iran has been found to be in full compliance with the nuclear deal, but the report comes against a backdrop of rising tensions between Tehran and Washington.

Earlier this month, then-US National Security Advisor Michael Flynn said that “Iran had been put formally on notice” after Tehran fired a ballistic missile. Later in February, President Trump tweeted that “Iran is playing with fire,” promising that he won’t be as “kind as [former President] Obama” and warned the Islamic Republic after its ballistic missile test on Jan. 29 that it was playing with fire and all U.S. options were on the table.

In response, Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, blasted the US, saying Tehran remains “unmoved” by threats, but will use weapons “only in self-defense.” Last month, a US Navy destroyer fired warning shots at four Iranian military ships that were allegedly approaching them at high speed near the Strait of Hormuz.

The latest US naval deployment shows that while the South China Sea has been a recent focus of the US navy, the only US ship in the region is the LHD 8 Makin Island Amphibious Ready Group, although the George H.W. Bush aircraft carrier is currently headed for the region.

    OK, so obviously the Donald is doing great things regarding PIZAAGATE/PEDOGATE.

    However, is Donald Trump playing his supporters for being complete fools when it comes to Iran and Israel? We ALL know that the mainstream media is 100% controlled and/or influenced by Zionist Jews, like George Soros, and that politically speaking, that Israel is the Zionist Jew hub of the world (owned in fact by the Rothschild dynasty).

    Is it even possible that Donald Trump could be so clueless as to not even know that Israel is politically his number one enemy?

    And furthermore, what is the beef with Iran? As ANYONE who has been following Michael Rivero of WHATREALLYHAPPENED DOT COM or Jim Stone the freelance journalist should know, Iran has been a 100% peaceful nation for over 50 years.

    Meanwhile Israel for decades has on countless occasions FALSELY accused Muslims of firing rockets at Israel to build a stick-man argument for retaliating. Ever notice how no-one from Israel has EVER been reported as having been injured from ANY of these ALLEGED rocket strikes?

    Only one reason for war with Iran who has not attacked another country in over 200 years: Israel

  • TC

    Imagine the tables were reversed. Imagine condemning the US Navy for drills in the Gulf of Mexico in the presence of a massive Iranian fleet. Imagine the US Army accused of testing missiles in Georgia. Imagine if someone actually became objective and accused the US of helping the most aggressive country in the Middle East obtain nuclear weapons and giving it jets and submarines to deliver them.

    American thinking continues to be driven by incessant propaganda. No one notes that Iran has not attacked a foreigh country in over 200 years (look it up) and it is as likely that it will attack us as it was likely that Iraq would attack us in 2003. But that will not deter us. In this century we destroyed Iraq and Libya using false pretenses and we are willing to risk a world war that could destroy all of us for the pleasure of shooting up another one and we’re desperately looking for a half believable pretense.

    Perhaps it is not Iran but we who need to change our thinking. For the good of all of us.

    General Petraues testimony to USA congress:
    **********
    ” The broader regional equilibrium is not the Islamic State; rather, it is Shiite militias, many backed by and some guided by Iran”
    ******

    What should be done by the international community after Obama? (big words and zero actions and results)

    Help the Persian clever people to replace the Shia Theocratic Islamist Mullah’s with a peace, equality and prosperity for all government!

    Theocratic Shia Islamist Iran is the self-declared enemy of USA, freedom and an empire on the making!
    Obama agreement is extremely dangerous.
    Fix it- don’t wait until it will too late!!
    President Trump will have a hard job curing USA and the world from President Obama Shia Islamist Iran legacy.
    He will need a big hammer!
    ———
    The Persians (today Iran) and the Arabs are geopolitical enemies for the last 4000 years.
    The Shia and Suni are Islam ideology enemies for the last 1000 years.
    Islamist Iran in order to rule the fertile crests, funds and supports Shia groups in:
    Lebanon – Hezbollah
    Iraq– Special Groups
    Yemen- Houthi

    The vast majority of the millions refugees are Sunni’s!
    In Iraq and Syria the Shia lead by Theocratic Islamist Iran are cleaning up the land from Sunni’s.
    Then the days of the war will settle down, a new reality will be unveiled that will dictate the ME geopolitics for generations
    ——-
    Thank to Obama irresponsible 8 years ME policy the Theocratic Islamist Iran is a superpower in the making.
    -.
    What drives Islamist Iran an empire on the making- a geopolitical view!- a geopolitical perspective.?
    —-
    1: Islamist Iran world domination expiration as stated in their constitution:
    - “This century will witness the establishment of an**universal holy government ** and the downfall of all others”
    The only country in the 21 century with such a constitutional statement.
    ****
    “”Liberalism and Western-style democracy have not been able to help realize the ideals of humanity. Today these two concepts have failed. Those with insight can already hear the sounds of the shattering and fall of the ideology and thoughts of the Liberal democratic systems.”"
    Quoted from Islamist Iran president letter to USA president
    This ideology stands against all the western values and threatens all the non Shia cultures
    (Sunni- Russia-China-India and keep counting)
    ***********
    2: Islamist Iran continue their expansion in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen – Supporting terrorist networks in listed 42 countries—and manufactures ballistic missiles and NUK know haw.

    3: Shia terrorist groups, the Islamist Iran guard and the Allawi’s are cleaning up Iraq+Syria+Lebonon from Sunnis.

    4: In 2025 Islamist Iran will have in place ballistic missiles reaching London and bond and infrastructure to build NUKS within a couple of months.
    Obama admitted this secret part of the NUK agreement
    Imagine the huge boost to Islamist Iran aggression and terrorism after they will be backed by NUKS!!
    —-
    Western leaders rushing to Islamist Iran for economic advantages prove that Arabs and Islamist Iran know perfectly their corrupted soul.
    Will president Trump change the course and impose strict economic sanction on Islamist Iran until the clever Persian people will kick out the Theocratic Mullahs?
    Time will tell!
