Pentagon Lays "Contingency Plans" for Potential Escalation Against Iran - War

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Zero Hedge: Amid fears that the US is running headlong into yet another sure to be disastrous war in the Middle East, acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan told reporters Friday that the Pentagon is prepping “contingency plans” should things quickly escalate militarily.

“When you look at the situation… 15 percent of the world’s oil flows through the Strait of Hormuz,” Shanahan said as quoted in The Washington Times. “So we obviously need to make contingency plans should the situation deteriorate. We also need to broaden our support for this international situation.”

The Pentagon indicated it’s further implementing plans to coordinate with America’s international allies in the event of military confrontation with Iran — something which could prove difficult given the European Union has urged ”maximum restraint” following Thursday’s tanker attacks incident Washington quickly blamed on Iran. The UK has been the only exception, which immediately stood behind Pompeo and Trump’s assessment. 

Notably, as The Washington Times reports further of Friday’s press briefing, “the Pentagon is planning for the possible deployment of additional U.S. forces to the Persian Gulf region in the event the threat from Iran worsens.”

      Qui Bono? Israel of course and mines or torpedos were not involved according to the tanker owners.
      What country in the Mid East is always striking its Semitic neighbors? Why it is Israel, the most anti Semitic country in the world even though Iranians are not technically Semites. But their close enough for the militant arm (Israel) of the Rothschild Banking Cartel to try to make some big war $ off of the gullible USA via their controlled Federal Reserve Bank:
      1849: Gutele Schnaper, Mayer Amschel Rothschild’s wife dies. Before her death she would state, “If my sons did not want wars, there would be none.”

        BIN is a neocon fake evangelical site. You wont find the truth you reveal here to get much traction or belief. doesnt matter how well you document the facts either. Its a ZIONIST site. The Rothschild info you quote above has been reverbed here endlessly and it never makes a dent w/ these dumb cucks. All the “patriots” who oppose the NWO are too stupid to realize that SYRIA-IRAN-LIBYA, while easily demonized for their Muslim fanaticism, were also the LAST OBSTACLES and holdouts AGAINST the implementation of the NWO. (which is why they’re being destroyed). Saving our asses, buying us time, taking the heat to stand against NWO. A big crop of them, called Haven’s Coven follow the Pharisee Rothschild-Schofield line of fake Israel. The genuine Xtians, like Chuck Baldwin, Steve Ben Nun, Rick Wiles and Ted Pike, Michael Hoffman pass the true test of authentic truthtellers vs the fakes (like Haggmann, Jones, Hodges, Quayle, Lisa Haven and their spinoffs) by how thoroughly they are ignored, disappeared and dismissed. Blowhards like the ever ignorant and salacious Lisa Haven will never address the core enemy. they wont discuss who it is, cause they’re apostate enough to WORSHIP it. So here we are, heading into WW3 w/ most of the sheeple clueless sitting ducks.
