Happened at 7.20 am so they would all have been tucked up in bed with their teddy bears , or each other after ignoring the reveille bugle so the OIC has organised a louder alarm.. Probably made them hide under their beds rather than get up. Should do it @ 4.00 am next time.

US needs to leave the region as its position and the brutal occupation and mayhem since 2001, that killed millions and destroyed Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya and Yemen is now going to reap a harvest of eternal pain at a time US has declared war on most of humanity from Russia, China, Iran to Africa. Iranians are heading into a very uncertain elections with the ineffectual corrupt Rouhani and his pet CIA shill drone being totally discredited. It is likely that a younger Sepah general will take over and establish a succession path after Khamenei. The US and its Zionist masters are heading towards hubris led oblivion. No country in history can take on the whole world with an idiotic aim of “global full spectrum domination” when its economy is bankrupt, it is imploding internally and facing a rising Eurasian power block. The Zionists have also been totally exposed as small fry braggarts who failed to check Iranian power. It is also interesting that Hillary and Blinken both took shots at Russia as the easier target. Putin needs to smell some roses too as internal destabilization in Russia is about to being in earnest as Putin is increasingly unpopular.

The real resistance entailing massive US occupation forces casualties will start by this fall after the Iranians have sorted out their internal politics. All indications are pointing to a very young military leadership that has been forged in battle. Both Ghaani and his new deputy Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Fallahzadeh are veterans of all regional conflicts and not real shrinking violets. Fallahzadeh is younger and very aggressive and took several bullets in Syria at Idlib leading from the front and survived. These guys will come after the US. The only option for the US to save itself is to get out of the region and work out a detente with Iran, which is now the unquestionable regional superpower. Wait till the Chinese project Noor on joint missiles and aircraft is implemented.

Trouble with US if it sees it is going down it will be happy to take everyone else with it. It would rather go out with a bang than a whimper not caring how many others get obliterated in the process , friend or foe. It cares not about its debt as that can be ameliorated by war until the debt is forgotten or written off.

Frank

There is no question that of all the dying corrupt failed empires, the US is the most rapidly insane warmonger and a pathetic loser, but keep in mind that the US is even more deadbroke than its NAZI role model. It has been in a state of non-stop endless wars against over 50 small defenceless nations from Grenada to Yemen and has squandered its future while the rest of the Eurasian world, led by China rose. It is too late for the US and its divided population will not fight as the successive defeats in Afghanistan and Iraq have amply show. China would love for the US or the Zionist poodles to attack Iran as that would be the swan song war. I would would doubt that the US will go with a bang, it is just dying away like a kicked mad dog. Just look at its current monthly trade deficit of $75 billion, as no one wants its forcibly sold junk weapons and rusted cars. Americans are universally hated and considered a trash joke. Even India is now hostile, the puppet Wahhabi Arabs are floundering like headless snakes and the Eurotrash puppet leaders are in a quandary as they create worse police states than their NAZI parents. France, UK and Germany have the same Zionist police states as the US, so I doubt it that these rabid corrupt dogs will stand up to China, if it creates iron clad military alliances with Russia, Iran, DPRK, Syria, Iraq, Africa, Asian nations and wider Muslim world. US arrogance and Zionist parasitic control has spelled its doom and now the clock is ticking. US was a delusional Hollywood Zionist smokescreen that has now worn off with racism, hate and global warmongering.

I hope it goes as you have said Frank otherwise the world is doomed to the bleakest of futures. I certainly agree with what you have said ..
