RUMORS OF WAR: Israel masses tanks & APCs on Gaza border
Oct 20, 2018 08:54 am
RUMORS OF WAR: Israel masses tanks & APCs on Gaza border
(RT News) Israel has boosted its military presence along the border with Gaza amid top politicians’ calls for a full-scale military campaign like the conflict of 2014, to put an end to the violence and rocket attacks that it links to Hamas. The IDF has stationed around 60 tanks and armored personnel carriers at a deployment area near the Palestinian border, according to Reuters, in what may be the largest military maneuver from Israel since 2014’s Operation Protective Edge. In the latest exchange this week, a rocket from Gaza hit the southern Israeli city of Be’er Sheva,
damaging a house, while another fell into the sea. In a series of retaliatory airstrikes Tuesday night, the IDF killed one Palestinian and injured several more, targeting eight “terrorist locations.” Attempting to justify its rapid military escalation, Israeli officials claimed the rocket that landed in the sea came “dangerously close” to Tel Aviv. Still, Hamas took no responsibility for the rocket strike and promised an investigation. In addition to the military response, Israel closed two border checkpoints and instituted a three-mile limit for Palestinian fishing boats.

WAR DRUMS: Gaza rocket hits Israeli city, prompting Israeli air strikes in retaliation

WAR DRUMS: Gaza rocket hits Israeli city, prompting Israeli air strikes in retaliation
(CNN) A rocket fired from Gaza struck a home in the city of Beer Sheva in southern Israel early Wednesday, according to the Israeli military and Israel police. Footage from Israel Channel 10 showed damage to the fence and yard of the home. No injuries were reported. A second rocket landed off the coast of central Israel, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said. Israel’s air force
began striking targets in Gaza a few hours after the rocket launch, according to a statement from the Israeli military. Israel struck nearly two dozen Hamas military targets throughout Gaza, Conricus added.
The targets include a tunnel, two digging sites, a weapons manufacturing site, a naval tunnel, and more. In addition, the IDF identified an attempted rocket launch in northern Gaza and struck the launcher before the rocket was fired.

RUMORS OF WAR: Netanyahu threatens ‘very painful blows’ against Hamas…

RUMORS OF WAR: Netanyahu threatens ‘very painful blows’ against Hamas…
(Yahoo News) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday threatened “very painful blows” against Gaza’s Hamas rulers if they don’t halt protests along the perimeter fence that have led to clashes with Israeli troops. Netanyahu said Israel is very close to waging a “different kind of activity” against the Islamic militants.
He said “if it has any sense, Hamas will cease its fire and violent outbursts — now.” Hamas has orchestrated near-weekly protests along the Israel-Gaza boundary since March, pressing for an end to a decade-long Israel-Egyptian blockade of the isolated territory. The protests have intensified in recent weeks as attempts to reach a truce with Israel, including an easing of the blockade, have faltered.

Top US admiral warns of Russian submarine threat

Top US admiral warns of Russian submarine threat
(CNN) America’s most senior naval officer in Europe, Adm. James Foggo, said Friday that he was “concerned” about some of Russia’s newer and more advanced fleet of submarines. “Russia is not 10 feet tall but they do have assets that keep me vigilant, concerned. One of them is in the undersea domain,” Foggo, the commander of US Naval Forces Europe, told reporters at the Pentagon. While Foggo said Russia’s
surface fleet, including its aging aircraft carrier, posed little threat — saying Moscow did “not have a robust capital ship capability” — he did express concerns about Russian advancements in its development of submarines and cruise missiles. “We’ve seen creation of new classes of all sorts of submarines and ships. I’m more concerned with submarine warfare,” Foggo said earlier on Friday while addressing the Atlantic Council in Washington.

Britain stages biggest war games for 17 years with 5,500 troops while rehearsing cyber strike to black out Moscow

Britain stages biggest war games for 17 years with 5,500 troops while rehearsing cyber strike to black out Moscow
(The Sun) Defense chiefs have rehearsed a huge cyber-strike to cripple Moscow if Vladimir Putin ever launches a military attack on the West. Senior security sources are reportedly concerned Britain’s military resources are ill-equipped to respond to Russia short of firing Trident nuclear missiles. Senior security sources say they are concerned Britain has a “capability gap” that has left commanders with not enough firepower to
take on Putin’s military might, reveals the Sunday Times. And reports claims exercises on the threat posed by Russia have left officials “ashen-faced” at how any confrontation with Russia could escalate out of control. Top level Whitehall officials have now vowed to step up Britain’s offensive cyber-attack capabilities in readiness for any future conflicts with the Kremlin. The news comes as 5,500 British troops take part in their biggest military exercise for a decade to improve their combat readiness.

Iranian General vows to destroy Israel in furious attack

Iranian General vows to destroy Israel in furious attack
(Express) A top Iranian General has vowed to destroy Israel, warning “there will soon be no way to escape but the sea”, raising fears of a major outbreak of conflict in the volatile Middle East. The comments were made by Brigadier General Hossein Salami, second-in-command of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards force, during a speech to his troops in the city of Isfahan. Referring to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu, he said: “I tell the Prime Minister of the Zionist regime that he should practice swimming in the Mediterranean. “Because soon there will be no way to escape but the sea.” The Iranian regime consistently refers to the Israeli Government as “the Zionist regime” as a way of denying its legitimacy. General Salami went on to claim that Israel could be defeated by terror group Hezbollah, which Iran supports.

Iran launches ‘DEATH TO AMERICA’ missiles in message to America

Iran launches ‘DEATH TO AMERICA’ missiles in message to America
Iran has reportedly launched a salvo of missiles with DEATH TO AMERICA written on the fuselage. The Islamic republic targeted US-backed militants in Syria saying it was punishing its enemy’s “wickedness”.  The obvious saber-rattling by Tehran sparked new World War 3 fears as it launched against American interests in the beleaguered nation. The targeted areas are also supported by regional powers in eastern Syria.
The night strike was launched at just before midnight last night (2.00am local time) and it targeted bases of the “takfiri terrorists” blamed for a recent attack on a military parade, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said in a statement on Sepah News, the official news site of the powerful military force. The statement added: “Our iron fist is prepared to deliver a decisive and crushing response to any wickedness and mischief of the enemies.”

Putin tests new missiles by blowing up fleet of warships…
Vladimir Putin has tested his terrifying new missiles by blowing up a fleet of warships in a training exercise. Footage released by Russia’s defense ministry showed the capabilities of the country’s Kh-35U anti-ship missiles. They were fired from a Su-34 long-range strike aircraft and managed to sink a group of ships which were imitating a group of enemy vessels.
The training exercise was a triumph with all eight launches successfully striking the intended targets. Russia’s Ministry of Defence said: “Su-34 multifunctional fighter-bombers carried out practical launches of the newest guided anti-ship missiles Kh-35U. “All in all eight launches were carried out, all missiles successfully hit targets.” Russian officials claim the state-of-the-art Kh-35 is immune to any enemy attack.

RUMORS OF WAR: Iran video threatens missile strikes on UAE and Saudi Arabia
Sep 25, 2018 | 0  |     
RUMORS OF WAR: Iran video threatens missile strikes on UAE and Saudi Arabia
An Iranian media outlet close to the country’s hard-line Revolutionary Guard published a video Tuesday threatening the capitals of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates with missile attacks, further raising regional tensions after a weekend militant attack on a military parade in Iran. The video tweeted and later deleted by the semi-official Fars news agency comes as Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali
Khamenei blamed Riyadh and Abu Dhabi for the attack in the city of Ahvaz on Saturday, which killed at least 25 people and wounded over 60. The threat amplifies the unease felt across the greater Persian Gulf, which is seeing Iran’s economy upended in the wake of America’s withdrawal from Tehran’s nuclear deal with world powers and Saudi and Emirati forces bogged down in their years-long war in Yemen.

He was referring to Israel conducting a raid on Iran's "nuclear atomic archive" and the report on the matter that was subsequently released.


Netanyahu slammed the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for not taking any action following Israel's report on the "secret archive."


Netanyahu went on to reveal a new piece of information. "What I am about to say has not been shared publicly before," he said. "I am disclosing for the first time that Iran has another secret facility in Tehran."
Netanyahu showed a photo of the "innocent looking compound" in Tehran, while naming the street that it is located on.

RUMORS OF WAR: Iran warns U.S. and Israel of revenge after parade attack

RUMORS OF WAR: Iran warns U.S. and Israel of revenge after parade attack
The deputy head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards warned U.S. and Israeli leaders on Monday to expect a “devastating” response from Tehran, accusing them of involvement in an attack on a military parade in the city of Ahvaz. “You have seen our revenge before … You will see that our response will be crushing and devastating and you will regret what you have done,” Hossein Salami said in a speech before the funeral of the victims broadcast live on the state television.
Thousands of people packed the streets of the southwestern Iranian city of Ahvaz to mourn the victims of Saturday’s assault that killed 25 people, including 12 members of the elite Revolutionary Guards. Many chanted “death to Israel and America”. The coffins, wrapped in the flag of the Islamic Republic, were carried by the mourners. Many held pictures of a four-year-old boy killed in the attack, one of the worst against the most powerful military force of the Islamic Republic.

RUMORS OF WAR: Russia promises retaliation on Israel for ‘shot down’ plane in Syria, Middle East on “Brink”
Russia has promised retaliation after Israeli airstrikes created a “dangerous situation” by performing unannounced attacks in Syria, resulting in a Soviet reconnaissance plane being accidentally shot down by Syrian Air Defence systems, the Kremlin has announced. The aircraft, which was used for electronic surveillance, disappeared from radar screens over Syria at about 8 PM BST (11 pm local time) on Monday.
It happened around the same time Israeli and French forces were launching targeted strikes in Syria. According to the Russian defense ministry, 15 people were on board the I1-29 turboprop plane at the time of its disappearance. But on Tuesday morning, following the French military denying involvement in the plane’s disappearance, RIA news agency reported the Kremlin has accused Israeli aircraft of deliberately creating a “dangerous” situation.

Russia’s biggest war games include sub hunt in Pacific…
Russian naval forces have conducted a submarine search using an anti-submarine ship and a helicopter in the Sea of Okhotsk as part of Russia’s largest-ever military exercises. About 3,200 troops from China have joined about 300,000 Russian troops for a week of war games in Siberia and the Far East, and over the Arctic and Pacific oceans. The maneuvers continue through Monday.
The naval exercise in the arm of the Pacific between Russia and Japan’s Hokkaido island featured the Russian destroyer Vice-Admiral Kulakov and a Ka-27 helicopter equipped to search for submarines. The Defense Ministry said Saturday’s also included MiG-31 and Su-35 fighter jets intercepting planes appearing to approach their zone without responding to ground control, and Tu-22 long-range bombers hitting targets resembling parked aircraft and warehouses.

RUMORS OF WAR: Germany could join a military alliance with the US, UK, and France if Syria tries another chemical attack

RUMORS OF WAR: Germany could join a military alliance with the US, UK, and France if Syria tries another chemical attack
Against the backdrop of potential chemical attacks by the Syrian regime in the province of Idlib, German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen is exploring how Germany can engage in military retaliatory actions against the army of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad. BILD has learned the German Ministry of Defense is considering participating in the alliance of the USA, Great Britain and France in the future,
but only if Assad troops were to use chemical weapons against their own population again. In April 2018, the three powers flew air attacks against selected targets of the regime after the Syrian army attacked the city of Duma, near the capital Damascus, with chemical weapons. At the time, German Chancellor Angela Merkel had ruled out Germany’s participation in “military actions.”

Russia launches largest EVER war games alongside China
Russia launched Tuesday what it called its largest-ever military drills, with hundreds of thousands of troops taking part along with Chinese soldiers in a show of force NATO condemned as a rehearsal for “large-scale conflict.” President Vladimir Putin is expected to attend the games after hosting an economic forum in Russia’s far eastern city Vladivostok where his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping is one of the prominent guests.
The week-long war games dubbed “Vostok-2018″(East-2018) “have kicked off” in far eastern Russia, the defense ministry said. Taking part in the drills are around 300,000 soldiers, 36,000 military vehicles, 80 ships and 1,000 aircraft, helicopters and drones. Some 3,500 Chinese troops will take part in the games. The defense ministry released video footage of military vehicles, planes, helicopters and ships getting into position for the initial stage of the drills.

RUMORS OF WAR: Pentagon ‘routinely’ briefs Trump on ‘military options’ in case of chemical attack in Syria
While no final decision has yet been made, a top US general says he’s involved in “routine dialogue” with Donald Trump to keep him informed about “military options” for retaliation in case “chemical weapons are used” in Syria. “We are in a dialogue, a routine dialogue, with the president to make sure he knows where we are with regard to planning in the event that chemical weapons are used,” Marine General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on Saturday.
“He expects us to have military options and we have provided updates to him on the development of those military options.” Fears of a looming ‘chemical incident’ in Syria have intensified recently, as the Syrian government closes in on Islamist militants’ last major stronghold in Idlib province. Russia, for over a month, has been warning that the terrorists, cornered and desperate, are preparing a false-flag attack to frame Damascus and trigger a US-coalition intervention.

US Marines launch live-fire air assault into Syria desert in ‘strong message’ to Russia
More than 100 U.S. Marines launched an air assault in the southern Syrian desert backed by artillery fire to send a “strong message” to Russia not to send their forces inside a restricted area near an American military outpost, two U.S. defense officials have told Fox News. The show of forces comes as the leaders of Iran, Russia and Turkey are meeting Friday in Tehran to hammer out their next steps in the seven-
year Syrian civil war ahead of an expected offensive led by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces into the country’s northwest Idlib Province. On two separate occasions this month (Sept. 1 and Sept. 6), the Russian military warned its American counterparts of its intention to conduct a military operation in southern Syria near the At Tanf garrison where U.S. special operations forces are located.

WW3 WARNING: China UNLEASHES helicopters and warship at British Navy in South China Sea
THE Royal Navy was confronted by China's military might after a British warship passed close by Beijing-claimed Paracel Islands, in a move the Asian superpower has dubbed "provocation", with tensions escalating in the region.

Chinese military warn US Navy not to fly over SECRET ISLAND
HMS Albion sailed passed Paracel Islands in a bid to assert the "freedom of navigation rights" and challenge China's "excessive claims" over the South China Sea.
Upon reaching the Islands, the warship was met by two Chinese helicopters and a frigate, but both sides reportedly remained calm during the stand off.
China's navy warned the British vessel to leave Chinese territorial waters.
China's Foreign Ministry added: "The relevant actions by the British ship violated Chinese law and relevant international law, and infringed on China's sovereignty.

China strongly opposes this and has lodged stern representations with the British side to express strong dissatisfaction.

"China strongly urges the British side to immediately stop such provocative actions, to avoid harming the broader picture of bilateral relations and regional peace and stability.

"China will continue to take all necessary measures to defend its sovereignty and security."

The 22,000 ton warship was packed with Royal Marines as it made its route to Hanoi where it docked on Monday after a deployment in and around Japan.

However, the Royal Navy insisted they did not enter the territorial disputed region but travelled twelve nautical miles away from the area, in accordance to the internationally recognised territorial limit.
In a statement, a Royal Navy spokesperson said: "HMS Albion exercised her rights of freedom of navigation in full compliance with international law and norms."
The Paracel Islands are also claimed by Vietnam and Taiwan, as countries in the region compete over territorial claims within the South China Sea.

Dr Euan Graham, a Senior Fellow at the Lowy Institute in Australia, told the Daily Telegraph: "The UK has impressively deployed three Royal Navy surface ships to Asian waters this year, after a long gap between ship visits, to this part of the world."

He added: "Also, the fact that Albion was coming from Japan and on her way to Vietnam gives the signal a sharper edge to China."
In June, UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson announced plans to send three warship to the South China Sea "to send the strongest of signals" to countries that "don't play by the rules".
This follows US Secretary of Defence, James Mattis warning to China, declaring the country would suffer "consequences" if it continued to militarise the South China Sea.
The US has previously announced hopes for more international initiative towards challenging Chinese claimed territories in the South China Sea, after Beijing claimed reefs, islands and built missile systems in the disputed region.

RUMORS OF WAR: Ambassador Nikki Haley warns that ‘All Eyes Are On Assad, Russia and Iran”
US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley tweeted on Tuesday morning that “all eyes on the actions of Assad, Russia, and Iran in Idlib.” She ended the tweet with #No Chemical Weapons. US
President Donald Trump also turned to social media to voice his concern for the people of Idlib. Warning that “Hundreds of thousands of people could be killed,” Trump cautioned Russia, Iran and Assad not to act “recklessly” or “take part” in what he described as a “potential human tragedy.”

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel threatens attack on Iranian assets installed in Iraq

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel threatens attack on Iranian assets installed in Iraq
Israel has threatened to attack any Iranian military assets in Iraq as it has done in Syria, following reports Tehran has moved ballistic missiles closer to the Jewish state. Avigdor Lieberman, Israel’s defense minister, signaled on Monday it would “contend” with Iranian provocations wherever they are found. “We are certainly monitoring everything that is happening in Syria, and regarding Iranian
threats, we are not limiting ourselves just to Syrian territory. This also needs to be clear,” Mr Lieberman told a conference in Jerusalem. Asked if this included Iraq, he responded: “I am saying that we will contend with any Iranian threat, and it doesn’t matter from where it comes … Israel’s freed.” Tehran has transferred dozens of short-range ballistic missiles to Shia proxies in Iraq over the last few months, according to a Reuters report published over the weekend.

RUMORS OF WAR: With Ships and Missiles, China Ready to Challenge U.S. Navy in Pacific…

RUMORS OF WAR: With Ships and Missiles, China Ready to Challenge U.S. Navy in Pacific…
In April, on the 69th anniversary of the founding of China’s navy, the country’s first domestically built aircraft carrier stirred from its berth in the port city of Dalian on the Bohai Sea, tethered to tugboats for a test of its seaworthiness. “China’s first homegrown aircraft carrier just moved a bit, and the United States, Japan and India squirmed,” a military news website crowed, referring to the three nations China
views as its main rivals. Not long ago, such boasts would have been dismissed as the bravado of a second-string military. No longer. A modernization program focused on naval and missile forces has shifted the balance of power in the Pacific in ways the United States and its allies are only beginning to digest. While China lags in projecting firepower on a global scale, it can now challenge U.S. military supremacy in the places that matter most to it: the waters around Taiwan and in the disputed South China Sea.

RUMORS OF WAR: Damascus air defenses reportedly placed on “high alert” for fear of US attack
Syrian air defenses were placed on high alert Monday, according to a report in the pro-regime news site Al Masdar. A source told the newspaper that the Mazzeh airbase was preparing to defend against a possible US missile attack on Damascus. Earlier in the day a top Russian official said the US was
bolstering its military forces in the Middle East in preparation for a strike against Syrian government forces, according to the Russian news agency TASS.Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov told reporters, “the US is making preparations for a missile attack on Syria, which will follow after a staged chemical weapons attack in the province of Idlib, blamed on the Syrian government.”

Terrorists readying chemical attack to frame Damascus & provide pretext for US strikes – Russian MoD

The US and its allies are preparing new airstrikes on Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry said, adding that militants are poised to stage a chemical weapons attack in order to frame Damascus and provide a pretext for the strikes.
The attack would be used as a pretext for US, UK and French airstrikes on Syrian targets, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, Major General Igor Konashenkov said. USS ‘The Sullivans,’ an Arleigh Burke-class Aegis guided missile destroyer, was already deployed to the Persian Gulf a couple of days ago, he added.

The destroyer has 56 cruise missiles on board, according to data from the Russian Defence Ministry. A US Rockwell B-1 Lancer, a supersonic bomber equipped with 24 cruise missiles, has also been deployed at the Qatari Al Udeid Airbase.

National Security Advisor John Bolton ©️ Global Look PressBolton calls on Al-Qaeda to stage more chemical attacks in Syria
The provocations are being prepared by militants from Al-Nusra Front (now known as Tahrir al-Sham) in Idlib province, northwestern Syria,

In order to stage the attack, some eight canisters of chlorine were delivered in to village near Jisr al-Shughur city for the terrorists’ use, he added. A separate group of militants, prepped by private British security company Olive, have also arrived in the area. The group will be disguised as volunteers from the White Helmets group and will simulate a rescue operation involving locals purportedly injured in the attack, according to the military official.

According to the Defense Ministry spokesman, recent statements by US National Security Advisor John Bolton – in which he threatened to bomb Syria – could be interpreted as an implicit confirmation of such airstrikes. On August 22, Bolton stated that “... if the Syrian regime uses chemical weapons, we will respond very strongly and they really ought to think about this a long time.”

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov warned Washington against new reckless moves in Syria, RIA Novosti reported. “We hear ultimatums from Washington, including those made in public,” the top official said, apparently referring to Bolton’s recent remarks.

According to Ryabkov, the US is aiming to destabilize Syria and create new pretexts for regime change in Damascus. “Again, we are witnessing serious escalation of the situation [in Syria],” he added.

In April, the US, UK and France unleashed a bombing campaign on Syria. The airstrikes were carried out in response to an alleged gas attack in Douma on April 7, which the West blamed on Bashar Assad’s government. The operation started hours before a team from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) was due to reach the city.

Back then, Syrian defenses were scrambled to repel some 103 cruise missiles and air-to-surface missiles launched at civilian and military targets by the Western trio. It managed to intercept at least 71 of them, the Russian Defense Ministry said at the time.

China to join Russian nuclear war games for first time…
Russia and China will hold a large-scale military exercise next month that will include simulated nuclear weapons attacks, according to American defense officials. The People’s Liberation Army will send more than 3,200 troops, 900 pieces of military equipment, and 30 aircraft to Russia for the exercise known as Vostok-18, or East-18, the Chinese Defense Ministry said, noting the exercises will involve practicing
maneuver defense, live firing of weapons, and counterattack. “We urge Russia to take steps to share information regarding its exercises and operations in Europe to clearly convey its intentions and minimize and potential misunderstanding,” Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon said when asked about Vostok-18. Additionally, the joint Russian-Chinese exercises scheduled for Sept. 11 through 15 will include military forces from Mongolia for the first time.

RUMORS OF WAR: Hezbollah Chief Claims Terrorist Group Stronger than IDF, Ready for War With Israel!

RUMORS OF WAR: Hezbollah Chief Claims Terrorist Group Stronger than IDF, Ready for War With Israel!
In a televised address marking the 12th anniversary of the end of the 34-day Second Lebanon War with Israel in 2006, Hezbollah general secretary Hassan Nasrallah boasted that his forces were stronger than the Israeli army and prepared for a fresh war with Israel. Nasrallah claimed that the Trump administration was “mistaken” in thinking sanctions would lead to riots in Iran that would topple the regime, or even force Iran to reduce support for activity abroad.
Last week the US began restoring sanctions that had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, which President Donald Trump withdrew from in May. The administration says the renewed sanctions are meant to pressure Tehran to halt its support for international terrorism, its military activity in the Middle East and its ballistic missile programs.

China Folds to Trump’s Pressure, Quietly Removes Oil Tariff
BY CILLIAN ZEAL
AUGUST 11, 2018 AT 8:12AM
Share on Facebook Tweet Email Print
China has removed crude oil from its list of items being slapped with a 25 percent tariff, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.
It seems unusual for those used to America being an energy importer to hear about energy exports, particularly to a country as big as China. However, America’s role in petroleum production has steadily increased for quite some time now, meaning industry in China was about to feel a serious pinch.
“Over the past two years China has become the biggest buyer of U.S. crude-oil exports, last year taking a fifth of the total,” Chuin-Wei Yap wrote in the Journal.
Advertisement - story continues below
Beijing had originally announced that oil was going to be on the list of items slapped with a 25 percent tariff issued in response to the Trump administration’s tariffs.
However, when the final list of $16 billion in tariffed goods was issued on Wednesday, oil was conspicuously absent.

“China’s Ministry of Commerce didn’t explain the omission and didn’t immediately respond to questions,” Yap reported.
China still called the measures “unreasonable” and said they had taken the measures “to safeguard its legitimate rights and interests and the multilateral trading system.” However, the measure seemed to be more about safeguarding the interests of Sinopec Group, the state-owned Beijing-based energy giant.
“Sinopec did a lot of lobbying work with the government,” an individual with knowledge of the situation told Reuters. They said the petroleum manufacturer used its clout to move the decision of the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Commerce.
“The U.S. will be the single largest source of new oil supplies outside OPEC. It’s in China’s interest to diversify supplies,” another source told Reuters.

“Removing crude imports, worth roughly $8 billion annually based on Sinopec’s earlier forecast of 300,000 barrels per day (bpd) for 2018, also gives Beijing room to maneuver in future negotiations with Washington, especially as it may soon lose some Iranian oil shipments due to reimposed U.S. sanctions,” Reuters noted.
And that could mean big things in the trade war.
“The issue for the Chinese is that any tariff on U.S. exports, (including) oil, will likely hurt their economy disproportionately because they have to import,” Kenneth Medlock, senior director of the Center for Energy Studies at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy, told Reuters.
“U.S. exports will find a home regardless of how the global supply deck is reshuffled.”
Even though oil won’t be on the list when the new tariffs go into effect on August 23, diesel, kerosene, lubricants and propane will be included.
RELATED: Liberals’ Obsession with Foreign Labor Used as Bargaining Chip by China
However, this is a pretty major blink from China — and a huge win from the Trump administration.
If Beijing’s need for oil brings them to the table, that’s yet another bargaining chip the United States can use to get a more sane trade policy

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel And Hamas Are On The Verge Of War As More Than 150 Rockets Rain Down On The Holy Land Overnight

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel And Hamas Are On The Verge Of War As More Than 150 Rockets Rain Down On The Holy Land Overnight
(By Michael Snyder) This is the closest that Israel and Hamas have been to war since the last major conflict in 2014. There had been ongoing negotiations regarding a long-term ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, but those plans appear to be on hold after a huge escalation of the violence in the last 24 hours. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gathered with his defense minister and other top military officials late last night, and at this hour it is unclear what will happen next.
If Hamas stops firing rockets, perhaps ceasefire negotiations can resume. But if they keep firing rockets, it could lead to all-out war and all hell could break loose in the Middle East. From Wednesday night through Thursday morning, more than 150 “projectiles” were fired into Israel by members of Hamas. The following comes from the Jerusalem Post… Red Alert sirens continued to sound in the South throughout the night, with the latest salvo fired at 05:45 am Thursday morning.

Iran’s plan that puts the entire West in danger
By Leah Rosenberg - August 7, 2018 7955 0
VIDEO
The Iranian regime wants to destroy Israel. But will they stop there? Their future plans put the entire West in danger, and they must be stopped!

Iranian Regime Calls to Destroy Israel
Iran has been seeking Israel’s destruction for decades. They constantly threaten Israel. Hossein Salami, deputy commander of the IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) said, “We have 100,000 missiles in Lebanon ready to hit Israel.” The Iranian regime spends billions of dollars on war and nuclear weapons. Their entire being represents destruction. Will the UN do anything about that? The international world needs to speak out.

Israel wants peace. Iran wants to destroy. It’s that clear.

Iran Blames Israel for Everything
Not only does the Iranian regime seek to destroy Israel, but they also blame Israel for anything they can, even if it is ridiculous. For example, they blamed Israel for their drought. Apparently, Israel has control over the weather in Iran. That is beyond absurd! But for the Iranian regime, nothing, or rather everything, is absurd. Furthermore, Iranian leaders don’t take control over their own country and the needs of their people. They just blame others. They also spend money that could be used toward helping their people and instead use it for terrorism.

Who Will be Next?
The frightening reality is that Iran is not only threatening Israel. They want to destroy the West. Anyone who is against their terrorist regime is a target. Hossein Salami said, “If Europe wants to turn into a threat, we will increase the range of our missiles.” Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said, “Iran’s 2,000-kilometer missile range could cover most of American interest.”

It is clear that the Iranian regime’s goal of destruction extends far beyond just Israel. Iran is certainly not hiding what their future plans are.

And they must be stopped!
