National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn Iran is “On Notice”…

During the White House Press Briefing earlier today National Security Advisor Michael Flynn discussed the various recent provocations from the Iranian regime.

In the past several days Iran has been probing U.S. policy with various provocations and testing the Trump administration’s reaction. Testing ballistic missiles and a Houthi rebel suicide bomb attack against a Saudi military vessel. The Houthi group are financed by the regime within Iran.

Throughout the campaign and early presidency Donald Trump has repeatedly stated he would not give specifics about any potential response toward any hostile action. However, that said – any response, if determined, from a Trump administration, would likely be unannounced and significant.

.

Last weekend President Trump and Saudi King Salman spoke on the telephone.  Additionally, Trump has formed the early stages of a working relationship with King Abdullah III of Jordan, and Egyptian President Fattah el-Sisi.  President Trump has also spoken with Vladimir Putin (Russia) who holds economic leverage over Iran.

            Totally. And while the origin is too familiar to many, I think it’s worth reevaluating.

            Back when somebody thought it was a good idea to strangle Russia’s southern naval and mercantile access – possibly when they were victims of something called the Soviet Union and trying to impose it on everybody else (and after Obama, I have some sympathy with anybody taken over by the Reds), it made sense to make an ally of the owner of the Bosporus, to hem in communism in case of a world war. Similarly before that, empire after empire played geopolitics with the Bosporus, and Turkey has played right along. It’s the biggest jewel in their collection, and they are not about to not use it for all it’s worth.

            While Turkey obviously has value to lots of people for military projection into the region, it also has negative value as a “tripwire-level” ally in NATO, IMO – particularly with a snake like Erdogan in charge. Sometimes I think that junior or questionable members of NATO should be on a very short leash. If they bite Russia, they get a whack on the ass and told to be a good doggie or else. We need to have the freedom to disavow their malbehaviors, which are far too frequent. And beyond that, we need to avoid questionable friends in our inner circle, IMO, because too many friends of the wrong kind can bring one down. It is only a small group of trusted, righteous friends for whom you rush to their aid, without having to do the math as to why. England and then argue about the rest until it’s maybe a handful. I do NOT see the regime in Ukraine as one of them – even with us having installed them. Puppets are NOT friends. They are puppets, and will always be puppets.

            As for the Bosporus itself, I think the same arguments that WE make about naval and mercantile access in the South China sea apply to the Bosporus and the Med in general, if not worldwide. Giving people freedom of movement everywhere is a plus for humanity, if not one of the few legitimate functions of globalism.

            In fact, the problem with globalism is visible right there, in terms of guaranteeing sea access to all – do unto others – it works at all scales – that should be the kind of thing it does – not telling us we have too much freedom here in the USA. Globalism needs to have a freedom imperative. It needs to be a lot more like what the founding fathers gave us – freedom of sovereign nations and sovereign individuals FROM ITSELF – and a lot less like the draconian, controlling EU.

            Why is the Federation in Star Trek so rarely seen as obnoxious? Because it’s very “hands-off”, with that even being enshrined in the Prime Directive. Good grief, we were smart back then. Ya know? It is even apparent in the sci-fi of the time.

            Since the failure of the Gulan-CIA-State department attempted coup, Erodgan has a protector, Russia. And they have advanced their “relationship” to the stage of flying missions together against ISIS/AQ.

            Putin has allowed Turkey it’s operations against the Kurds. They agree that Kurdistan is not in the future of Syria.

            Russia has proposed an autonomous region, language and religious freedom for the Kurds within a unitary Syrian Republic. Turkey will be joined with Syrian Army and Russian military force to push the Kurds away from the Turkey border into Kurdish region, but not on the border.

            Turkey and NATO/US no longer are the masters of the Bosphorus Straits. Russia’s navy is being installed in Tartus Naval Base, Syria. The freedom of navigation will no longer be the business of the US through its navy and Turkey bases. It will be shared responsibility.

            Another major power is joining the naval powers of the region—China. By the time the US expands its naval forces China will be a much big global blue water navy.
            The Black Sea, the Mediterranean, the Suez Canal, Red Sea, Gulf of Aden and Persian Gulf all are strategic economic routes for the Chinese import of oil and export of goods.

            Turkey has been diminished in rank and influence. The more Erdogan schemed to become the second Ottoman Empire, the quicker he fell to a dependent of Russia. Now he is working alongside Iran and will soon turn more toward Eurasia.

            He is a dilemma for NATO. But NATO is a dilemma for the US. It provides zero security for the US anywhere. It is a force multiplier, a proxy really. But it creates problems everywhere it is based and supported: The Baltics, the Black Sea, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Spain, East Europe, the Balkans, and spectacularly as a partner in Afghanistan for 16 years.

            Where it does nothing bad, Western Europe, it’s old home turf, it is useless against the threats and conflicts caused by radical Islamic terror. NATO is like a steam shovel being used in your window planter box garden to till the soil and keep weeds from growing.

            It’s Intel operations are subordinate to US Intel. Ergo, useless.
            It’s weapons are US.
            It’s budget is underwritten by US.
            It’s tactics are US (which haven’t won a war since WWII).

            It’s greatest European live action test is Ukraine and in three years a bunch of farmers and miners one third the size of the formations thrown against them have defeated and destroyed all NATO can do via Ukie as proxies.

            In other words, NATO is absolutely worthless for any task, anywhere for any reason.

            Worrying about the nukes the US has staged all over Europe is a WMD-in-the-hands-of-terrorists problem that must be dealt with. Shifting them to unstable Eastern European vassals like Romania is madness.

            Turkey isn’t the problem in NATO. NATO is the problem in US strategic thinking.
            And the Deep State and neocons are determined to force Trump to keep it alive and well, dangerous to world peace and useless against the real enemy radical Islam.

            It was built to contain USSR. That empire left the world in 1991. Time for NATO to be dissolved.

      Not so sure about that, unless Iran does something in Syria or Lebanon that threatens Israel directly. What might be more likely is a confrontation between Iran and the US, an incident with one of our Navy vessels for example. I think that would likely be met with force and that can lead to quickly bringing the situation to a head. Remains to be seen what putting Iran “on notice” really means.

        Iran’s nuclear facilities are dispersed and buried. They could only be destroyed with many bunker-buster bombs – which would merely set back their timeline by 10-20 years, while steeling their resolve (and that of other Muslim countries). A 10-20 year respite in Iran’s march toward nukes (shown to be perfectly logical, given the way Obama/Hillary/McCain/Sarkozy deposed Gaddafi despite his having given up his WMD) is the blink of an eye in the context of a 1,400 year clash of civilizations. Anyone arguing for an attack on Iran has an insufficient time horizon.

        I believe President Trump and Secretary Mattis have already unleashed the military on ISIS but – as he promised during the campaign – they are not talking about it. On day one, January 21st, Secretary Mattis oversaw 31 ISIS targets hit in Iraq and Syria and there were local reports that ISIS commanders had been killed and captured. Our forces participated in an intelligence raid in Yemen that resulted in U.S. special forces casualties, including the death of Special Operator Wm. ‘Ryan’ Owens. President Trump and Ivanka met his casket at Dover AFB with the Owens family today. There are probably dozens, if not hundreds, of actions against ISIS ongoing worldwide.

        Russia can’t actually be happy about Iran testing ballistic missiles either. Russia doesn’t want nuclear proliferation anymore than the US does.

        The more nations that have usable nuclear weapons, the more dangerous they become.

        I get that Russia has a (inadvisable at this point) somewhat de facto alliance with Iran. But I doubt it would take much to convince them to help us rein Iran in without conflict.

        Russia has leverage over Iran, and that has more teeth to it than UN sanctions.

          Iran and Russia will not be separated.
          China and Russia will not be separated.

          The Russian foreign policy is based on relationships with everyone. They import a lot of things like food, their people travel as tourists, they sell arms, oil and gas and nuclear power technology. They like to work within groups like SCO, EAEU, CSTO, UN, BRICS as well as having staunch friendships in bilateral arrangements.

          Because the USSR was all over many continents with its reach, the Russians have been retracing those paths as they grow their capitalist economy. Instead of ideology like the USSR was spreading, the Russian Federation is selling weapons, gas and oil, pipeline expertise, nuclear energy expertise, tourism and an alternative to US hegemony.

          However, everywhere the US already has a footprint and where Russia is touching, there is radical Islamic terror disrupting both powers, and also, China’s progress. So, the logic is for all the superpowers to work together to end the scourge of Islamic terrorism.

          Trying to change Russia’s course of growth or China’s course of growth by attempting to divide them from their trade and security partners is not going to work. In fact, keeping them close to Iran helps control Iran and sets Iran on a more rational path.

          Removing the existential threat to Iran is as important as assuring Iran is no existential threat to anyone. Russia and China can do this. We must learn how to keep them on this task, not to prevent them from doing it. Our foreign policy has to be alert to the present reality not a historic ideology.

      Trump will need Putin to play along if we want to impose sanctions on Iran again. The previous round of sanctions did put the hurt on Iran, but then Obama and Kerry agreed to a terrible deal where we received nothing and Iran got economic recovery and military development. It’s like General Flynn said, instead of being thankful for these very generous concessions, Iran is refusing to hold up their end of the deal.

      A new round of sanctions won’t do much if Russia doesn’t agree to it and leaves Iran with an export partner. I think Russia would require not only that the US starts helping to defeat ISIS instead of trying to depose Assad, but also that Trump lifts any sanctions placed on Russia by Obama. That would still be a fair deal for us.

        An we can defeat those batteries in less than five minutes of fire. Kill the radars and they are as good as blind. they have battery mounted radars but those are shorter range and much less accurate, meaning they have to be on longer the get a good fix, and that makes them more vulnerable.

          No one has defeated S 300s anywhere.
          What will you kill the radars with?
          Computer games?

          If they are so defeatable, why are they so desired?

          And with Russia using Iranian air base, are you planning to take on Russia, also.

          The fantasy that the US has every weapon system to defeat every other weapon system is prevalent propaganda by the MIC.

          Syria has S 300s that protected them from air and missile attack.
          The fact is if you look at the system versions the US and NATO got their hands on to try to suppress, those were old, 25 years old electronics and radars. The Russian EW and radars as good as anything the US has. So good, the US considers the S300 and S400 impenetrable. F-35’s can’t hit them before they get hit themselves.

          Here’s a lot of information on the weapons.
          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-300_missile_system

          By the way, Russia is rolling out the S500 this year for itself.
          That would put them 3 generations ahead of counter-measures.

            We were told we could wrap up an invasion of Iraq in month, be greeted as liberators and have the whole operation paid for by Iraqi oil. 14 years, a couple of trillion dollars and thousands of American lives later, people are contemplating an attack on a more sophisticated country with 3.5 times the population. More cowbell, I guess.

      And on the Russia thing, on Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s first day on the job, the US Government this morning announced easing of Russian sanctions. Their cooperation with Iran and our cooperation with them in Syria just became way more likely.

      What will be factored in is that fact that Iran had terrorist cells who have partnered with narco cartels embedded throughout Latin America. If we take overt action against Iran they are poised to flood into America to rage guerilla war. And our border is totally unsecured. General Kelly knows all about this. That’s one of the reasons they are moving on the wall so quickly. I’m also betting they’ll clamp down on travel from Cuba again since that’s been a traditional jumping off place.

      Iran is destabilizing Saudi Arabia’s grip on oil. That’s a good thing. Really good. Saudis’ intended harm to upend and cripple USA financially had severe unintended consequences on Saudi, nearly bankrupting themselves in the process because of Iran ignoring SA decree to reduce oil production in ME. SA is 100% dependant on oil and are in overdrive to diversify.

    General Flynn, Sir, what about our ROE? The current one in place (the lawless SPLC wrote) weakens our military men and women mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Correct the ROE Bring back our chaplains.

    Another thing troublesome, complete and unimpeded, unfiltered intelligence sharing with Pakistan. Learned that tidbit through trying to research Extortion 17. (Mr. Trent Treto, & team, of Florida did a great service in researching the tragedy of EXTORTION 17) The greatest single loss in military history ever.

    Did I miss that talk, or did I misunderstand Spicer? Or was it a closed-to-press meeting from which the Spicer himself would get more info, so that Spicer could answer some questions today?

    The “Islamic Republic of Iran”, let’s call it what it is, was the first large scale Islamic revolution of modern times. It was the result of failed US policies under Carter, but which started in 1953 under Eisenhower.

    The Mullahs have forced a half century of Islamic indoctrination on the people of Iran, mostly unsuccessfully, to drive their population to their radical view that makes Persia the center of the Islamic world. The Saudis don’t like it one bit.

    The less radical Iranian population in contrast have had more of a western civilization bent from years and years of being influenced by western society, but are ruled with an iron fist by the radical Mullahs.

    It is up to the Iranian people to change their country. Good luck with that. The Mullahs do everything they do by proxy and lies, cowards that they are, and we should just poke them in the eye hard every time their proxy fighters try something on us. And I say poke “them” in the eye and not their proxies. They can always find some other yahoos to be their proxy.

      I concur with your analysis and suggestion. We must target the mullahs. How do sanctions affect them? Not at all. How do sanctions help an uprising? It doesn’t. We need a toolkit of tools that can get at the leadership of the government. Even killing their military leaders is not a good idea. Shiites are as martyr oriented as Sunnis. The thrive on martyrs.

      So, I would try engagement with them. Nothing screws up a rigid society more than the impact of our cultural excesses. By dealing with them, trading and investing in development, wooing them toward our Western corruption we will be able to ruin the Islamic republic easier, cheaper and faster than by military confrontation. They will soon be obese, diabetic, slothful, confused and obedient to advertisers, not Imams. It works. We almost destroyed Russia with Western values until Putin saved them. China now has the fattest children on earth. We did that with KFC. There are many ways to skin a cat. I truly believe that trade, commerce, and market capitalism is the way to go.

      It sounds cynical because it is. Export to them the thing they can’t resist and which weakens the grip on their society by the theocrats.

    I wouldn’t count on Russia holding ANY leverage over Iran. Iran is run by radical Islamist clerics who just use Russia to play off against the US. Russia is a Christian nation, and as such is on the jihadists’ hit list for the coming of the mahdi just as we are. We may very well see Americans and Russians fighting shoulder to shoulder against the jihad menace, but in the end God will call whomever he will.

    The Iran Deal and Trump possibilities.
    The Iran deal is an agreement only and never was a treaty. Treaties are more binding in that Congress has to approve them. Treaties easily span administrations. Deals no. And that is the key point.

    Deals/Agreement do not automatically and contractually span different administrations. A deal is made person to person. And not ratified nation to nation. So not contractually binding to a nation spanning multiple administrations of power.

    Sure new administrations want to honer deals and agreements as much as possible or the continuity and confidence in the government starts to break down.

    Enter the possible Trump strategy – the safe exit door.

    To abandon the deal it is best if you can show that the other side has not complied with the agreement and thus is in breech. Yellow warning card number #1 now Publicly issued – first breech of contract.

    If Iran breeches many more times, the Deal is Up and done. Torn up. And it was Your fault for breaking the agreement.

    Bottom line:
    A pen and phone agreement carries much less long term legally binding weight when compared to legislative passed binding treaty. The Iran deal is nothing much more than a complex executive order but must be exited with honor on your part to look good. Claim they broke agreement and done – out.

    From the end of Jeremiah 49 (sure seems like we are working our way towards this):

    35 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the chief of their might.

    36 And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come.

    37 For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before them that seek their life: and I will bring evil upon them, even my fierce anger, saith the Lord; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them:

    38 And I will set my throne in Elam, and will destroy from thence the king and the princes, saith the Lord.

    39 But it shall come to pass in the latter days, that I will bring again the captivity of Elam, saith the Lord.
