As Tensions with Iran Escalate, US Launches Major War Game Just 50 Miles off the Iranian Coast

by Melissa Dykes of The Daily Sheeple

In the past two weeks, President Trump has made it pretty clear that he intends to go to war with Iran.

Here are five signs right now —

But there are many more.

Case in point, after that video was put up, not only did Trump send out the following Tweet —

But Trump’s new Pentagon chief General Mattis also gave a press conference where he declared Iran to be “the single biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the world”.

That was last week. This week, the Wall Street Journal reported that Trump’s administration is actively working to “drive a wedge between Iran and Russia”.

So yeah, all that and it hasn’t even been three weeks yet…

Now Breitbart is exclusively reporting (not much of a shock there considering their former executive chair is now White House Chief Strategist) that 17 ships from the US, UK, Australia, and France chose last week — while the Trump Administration was threatening Iran left and right of all weeks — to launch a major war game just 50 miles from the Iranian coast.

The exercise was called “Unified Trident”… and supposedly it was planned two months ago, but the timing sure was swell as it just so happened to coincide with Trump and his administration putting Iran “on notice” and slapping the country with fresh sanctions.

What a “coincidence” huh?

A British Navy Commander went on record that this had nothing to do with sabre-rattling:

“It’s not a show of force to the Iranians at all,” the exercise’s logistical planner, British Royal Navy Lt. Cmdr. Ant Wallace, told the journalists aboard the HMS Ocean on the first day of the exercise.

“The reason we’re doing this exercise, and I’ll stress this over and over again, is because it’s easier to do here than it would be anywhere else … The fact that it’s in the Arabian Gulf is coincidental, really,” he said.

Really.

Do you believe him?

P.S.:

But the exercise featured two fictitious regional rivals, Redland (RL) and Grunland (GL), which bore close resemblances to Iran and the U.S.

Gee… Ya don’t say…
