U.S. Lawmakers: Iran’s Latin America Ties Pose Threat to U.S.

Voice of America News reports: “Members of a U.S. congressional panel expressed concern Thursday that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s ties to several Latin American leaders could pose a threat to U.S. national security. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs that senior Iranian officials are ‘now more willing to conduct an attack in the United States.’ He said Iran is trying to penetrate and engage in the Western Hemisphere.

The chairwoman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, said some people might question whether the Iranian-Latin American connection is a threat, but she said there is cause for concern.

‘Iran’s [President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad recently returned from his ‘Tour of Tyrants’ trip to visit Venezuela, Nicaragua, Cuba and Ecuador. Media reports have indicated an increased presence of Iran’s Quds Force in these countries and offices of Iran’s intelligence services surfacing throughout the region,’ said Ros-Lehtinen. ‘The fact that the military arm of a state-sponsor of terrorism has its operatives within multiple countries in our hemisphere is certainly cause for alarm and merits congressional focus.’…” (President Obama made a secret deal with Russia according to The New York Times. He promised Russia’s leaders he would withdraw plans for missile stations at Poland and the Czech Republic if they would help America control Iran. The result – Russia has bases in Kaliningrad and has attempted to raise another in Venezuela. Russia and Iran have the same goal – Latin American bases to hit the U.S.A. II Timothy 3:1 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come” – Why – verse 3 “…trucebreakers…” Do you see the nonsensical plan now Mr. Obama? See the next report.)

Iranian attack on America and allies increasingly likely – intelligence chief

The Guardian.co.uk reports: “The head of US intelligence has warned that there is an increasing likelihood that Iran could carry out attacks in America or against US and allied targets around the world.

The warning from the director of national intelligence, James Clapper, reflects rapidly rising tensions over Iran’s nuclear programme after the US and EU announced embargoes on the Iranian oil trade in the past few weeks, Israel leaked details of its preparation for a possible conflict and both the west and Iran boosted their military readiness in the Gulf.

The US plans to send a third aircraft carrier to the region in March, while Iran’s military has threatened to block the entrance to the Gulf in the strait of Hormuz and is planning to hold naval exercises there in the next few weeks involving a host of new weapons.

Presenting his annual ‘worldwide threat assessment’ to Congress, Clapper said an alleged plot to blow up the Saudi ambassador in Washington last year, which the US blamed on the Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, ‘shows that some Iranian officials – probably including the supreme leader Ali Khamenei – have changed their calculus and are now more willing to conduct an attack in the United States in response to real or perceived US actions that threaten the regime.’

Clapper added: ‘Iran’s willingness to sponsor future attacks in the US or against our interests abroad probably will be shaped by Tehran’s evaluation of the costs it bears for the plot against the ambassador as well as Iranian leaders’ perceptions of US threats against the regime.’…” (Iran has 40,000 suicide bombers trained and waiting to strike.

Iran is an ‘urgent’ nuclear threat: CSIS

The National Post reports: “A Top Secret Canadian intelligence assessment has concluded that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapons capability, adding weight to the growing international isolation of Tehran as UN inspectors push to investigate what Iran claims is a peaceful nuclear program.

In an Intelligence Assessment obtained by the National Post, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service calls the Iranian nuclear weapons programs one of ‘the most significant, urgent threats of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) proliferation today.’

‘The fact that Iran has engaged in activities related to nuclear weaponization suggests that it is, at a minimum, seeking to acquire the capacity to produce such a weapon,’ reads the heavily edited report, released under the Access to Information Act…” (When Iran has the nuclear bomb all hell will break loose on America and the world – Malachi 4:1; Revelation 9:18. See the next report.)

Iran: U.S., Israel highly vulnerable to retaliatory strikes

Haaretz reports: “The United States and Israel are highly susceptible to Iranian retaliation if they launch military strikes against Iran, a senior Iranian military commander was quoted as saying…

Iran’s Press TV reported that Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri, the deputy head of Iran’s armed forces joint chiefs of staff, asserted that the U.S. and Israel are in no position to carry out military action against Iran due to their vulnerability to counterstrikes.

Jazayeri also reportedly said that Iran ‘brushes aside’ the United States’ carrot and stick approach toward Iran.

The U.S. and Israel have not ruled out military action against Iran to prevent it from obtaining nuclear weapons.

Iran claims its nuclear program is peaceful, mainly for generating electricity.

Iran rejected as an ‘antagonistic move’ U.S. President Barack Obama’s executive order tightening U.S. sanctions that target Iran’s central bank and gives U.S. banks new powers to freeze assets linked to the Iranian government…” (Ahmadinejad’s messiah – Mahdi – only appears after Iran’s president has attempted to wipe the Jew from the face of the earth. Look again at the headline. This is Psalm 83:4 “…Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.”)

Iran Supreme Leader: U.S., Israel will suffer for threats on nuclear program

Haaretz reports: “Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said the Islamic Republic would not yield to international pressure to abandon its nuclear course, threatening retaliation for sanctions aimed at Iran’s oil exports.

‘Threatening Iran and attacking Iran will harm America…. Sanctions will not have any impact on our determination to continue our nuclear course…. In response to threats of oil embargo and war, we have our own threats to impose at the right time,’ Khamenei told worshippers in a speech broadcast live on state television.

The official Iranian news agency IRNA quoted Iran’s Supreme Leader as saying that war threats would ‘disfavor the US itself; the war would be ten times against interests of the US itself,’ said the Supreme Leader…” (This Supreme Leader is behind the Islamic messiah’s plan to eliminate Israel. It will fail – Isaiah 56:5 says “I will give them [Israel] an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.”)

Iran vows to attack any country used by ‘enemies’ to strike its soil

Haaretz reports: “Iran will attack any country whose territory is used by ‘enemies’ of the Islamic state to launch a military strike against its soil, the deputy head of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards told the semi-official Fars news agency.

‘Any spot used by the enemy for hostile operations against Iran, will be subjected to retaliatory aggression by our armed forces,’ Hossein Salami said, during military maneuvers.

The Revolutionary Guards began the two-day ground exercises on Saturday as a show of military might as tension rises between Tehran and the West over Iran’s disputed nuclear program.

Iranian media said it was a small-scale exercise in southern Iran…” (Iran’s little Hitler, President Ahmadinejad, is a windbag. Soon the hot air in him will be released and deflate this enemy of the Jews, Christians and even Muslims of the Gulf Nations.
