WORLD WAR III? UPDATE 5: Esper Turns on President, Blames President in NYT CYA* Article

January 3, 2020
* CYA: Cover Your Ass -- a common act of betrayal in US politics.
It has been my duty – and my honor – to work with such stellar strategic intellects as Col Doug Macgregor, himself a candidate for both Secretary of Defense and National Security Advisor positions during the first Trump Administration, and to be a loyal supporter and admirer of General Michael Flynn, Trump’s first National Security Advisor who was framed by the FBI and the Zionists to remove him from the White House. My observations below are informed by my past as a CIA spy and creator of the Marine Corps Intelligence Activity (MCIA), and by my non-fiction reading including hundreds of books on the corrupt, dysfunctional, and even treasonous US national security personalities and institutions.

Here are my conclusions:

01 Israel has been trying desperately to force a war with Iran, partly to save war-criminal Benjamin Netanyahu and partly to continue its long standing strategy of destabilization to divide and conquer the Middle East.

02 The primary war-mongering within Iraq is being done by Israel and the Kurds, with the US forces more like a supporting clown show.

03 The “campers” at the US Embassy, thankfully dispersed now, were intended to deceive President Trump into thinking that an Embassy take-over was imminent, similar to that which occurred in Iran under President Carter. Several of us helped end that theatrical show.

04 If Trump did approve this assassination, he was deceived into thinking it was the equivalent of a Bin Laden assassination (never mind that Bin Laden – and ISIS – were both created by the Zionists and the CIA with Pentagon funding and equipment) and he was not told that the assassination of Major General Qassem Soleimani within Iraqi territory is right up there with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand that was used as a casus belli for WWI.

05 Trump is surrounded by four pathological networks of liars: the US Army West Point Class of 1986 (Esper, Pompeo, Urban), Christian Zionists (Pompeo, others), Zionist agents (Kushners, both of them), and CIA Zionists (Brennan, Haspel, others). While his new National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien, is doing some spectacularly good work in eliminating Obama war-mongers and agents of foreign powers form the National Security Council, he may not have the nuanced grasp of history and current biographics needed to protect the President from these four networks of liars who favor war with Iran at any cost.

06 Both the US Mainstream Media (MSM) and social media (#GoogleGestapo) are committed to Zionist desires for war with Iran, and careful to cover up the true costs of our was in the Middle East including what are known as Fallujah Babies – the result of depleted uranium used in armor plating and armor-piercing projectiles.

07 A proportional response by Iran would not be a strike on US forces in the region, but rather the assassination, within the USA, of Mark Esper. I say this not to encourage such a reaction,, but to make clear to all those who read this article that this is what the USA has done to Iran, while also violating Iraqi sovereignty in a manner worthy of the International Criminal Court.

Below is my letter to President Trump submitted to the White House comment line this morning at 0542 Eastern Time.


Mr. President,

You have been schlonged by DoD and CIA and the US Army Class of 1986. The assassination of Major General Qassem Soleimani within Iraqi territory is right up there with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand that was used as a casus belli for WWI.

If you actually gave this order, you need to consider the possibility that everyone that advised you to do so is an agent of influence for Zionist Israel, and fire them.

Right now you need to be thinking about damage control. You are NOT in control of the US Government (as JFK was told by Schlesinger when he was angry over the missiles not being pulled from Turkey as he had ordered). Rule 1 in Washington according to Mort Halperin in Bureaucratic Politics and Foreign Policy is “Lie to the President if you can get away with it.”

Mike Flynn has a better grip on this stuff than your current team. I earnestly urge you to determine if this was a CIA drone or a DoD drone, and then very publicly fire both the Secretary of Defense and the Director of the CIA, transfer the CIA drones to DoD and terminate their use as assassination devices (most of their [alleged] successes are lies, you are being lied to).

I pray this message reaches you but have no faith that it will. I am doing my duty. To stop war with Iran, you need to fire Esper and Haspel and put Pompeo on a path out the door. PNG’ing the Israeli Ambassador would not hurt at all.

The West Point 1986 class is schlonging you. At the same time I believe that Gina Haspel is covering up for John Brennan and not cooperating fully in providing the available records on Brennan’s “green phone” calls to and from the UK with MI-6 and GCHQ. Combine those with an NSA print-out of every unmasking as Bill Binney and I have recommended to the AG, and you have it all.

I am praying for you. Anyone who supported this insane strike and assassination is an enemy of the USA.

Semper Fidelis, Robert David Steele

At this most delicate time in the history of the Middle East, I reiterate my view that the restoration of Palestine to the Palestinians is inevitable; the withdrawal of US forces and the closure of US bases in the Middle East (and hopefully around the world) is inevitable; and the degree to which our President is a prisoner in the White House, being lied to by four pathological networks, can and should be considered by the leaders of Iran, Iraq, China, and Russia.

In my view, the best appropriate response at this time is for Iraq to insist that all US forces – and all US “diplomats” as well as contractors (including particularly Exxon employees) leave Iraq. Iraq should also work with Iran and Russia to expel Israeli forces from the Kurdish zone in Iraq.

Escalation of this matter serves the Zionists – no one else. Given our President’s “capture” and our President’s vulnerability to liars – to enemies of America within the White House – to traitors – I humbly and respectfully recommend prudence on the part of Iran, and decisive action on the part of Iraq. Expel all foreigners. Work with Russia to hunt down and kill any Israeli forces that remain behind. Put the Israeli heads on stakes in the public square of Baghdad. This assassination may have been carried out by the USA, but only in our capacity as “useful idiots” in service to the Zionists.

Let this be my contribution to peace this day.

May God Bless each of us and may God have mercy on the souls of those who do great evil without understanding just how evil they have become.

UPDATE 4: General Was in Iraq to Stop Attack on US Embassy; Zionists Fabricated Signals Intelligence: Decision Was Domestic Political and ZERO Strategic Thought Was Present

ROBERT STEELE: DefDog #1 in UPDATE 3 is compelling evidence that the President was lied to by his Zionist-controlled advisors. To that we now add multiple reports that the Zionists fabricated signals intelligence that is simply not credible; that the decision was political and partly to support Fat Boy Pompeo’s run for the Senate in Kansas; and that no strategic thinking was present at any time. I myself have already gone on record as saying that this opens the door for the eventual assassination by Iran of our Secretary of Defense; and Thierry Maysan in UPDATE 3 makes the obvious but vital point — one I have conveyed to the White House and the Secret Service — with respect to the Zionists and neo-cons (including Pompeo) now being ready to assassinate President Trump directly, blame it on Iran, and elevate alleged murderous pedophile Mike Pence, a total dolt and captive of the Deep State, to the Presidency. On a positive note, I believe President Trump has a mastery of back channels into Iran, Iraq, China, and Russia, and this is all not going to as badly as some of us feared at first. He now getting the truth from many of us. I still trust the plan.

Veterans Today: Faked Israeli Intercept Pushes Trump into War…Fool me once…

Gordon Duff has a very unhealthy obsession with Trump’s alleged past, I recommend you ignore that and focus on the Zionist history of faking signals starting with “talking rocks” within Qadaffi’s compound fabricating radio traffic with fake terrorists, much as we simulated Patton’s fictitious 3rd Army during the lead up to WWII. The Zionists want WWIII. The US public does not.

There is one error in this article. Mossad has in fact sought to assassinate this individual in the past and been forbidden to do so by the USA. What changed was the fabricated Zionist signals intelligence and Trump’s obession with domestic political standing, combined with the strategic idiocy and lack of integrity of his most senior national security advisors.

Fools.. And the President let his ego get the better of him. Tucker Carlson, in contrast, has his shit in one bag and get it.

CNN: Fox’s Tucker Carlson breaks with colleagues and criticizes Trump’s strike on Iranian general

Here is a long email from US Ambassador Chas Freeman published with permission.

This was not a retaliation, as claimed, but the pre-planned exploitation of a pretext to assassinate a foreign official designated as an enemy as well as the commander of an Iraqi militia hostile to the United States. It was an act of war that will inevitably evoke reprisal. Iran has already promised that it will exact “savage” retribution for the murder of a senior official of its government by the United States. Major General Qasim Suleimani was the equivalent of the U.S. national security adviser or the commanders of CENTCOM, SOCOM, and SOCCENT. All are now potential Iranian targets. In Iraq itself, the followers of Abu Mahdi (Al Muhandis) in Kataeb Hezbollah will seek their own revenge. The fact that they are part of the Iraqi national security establishment and armed forces is not irrelevant. The Iraqi government, already under pressure to expel U.S. forces from their country, may now find it politically impossible not to do so. Kataeb Hezbollah is likely to be joined in its campaign against U.S. forces and officials in Iraq by other patriotic militias, including some historically hostile to both it and Iran.

The Iranian government seldom makes decisions in haste. It is the heir to one of the world’s longest and greatest traditions of politico-military statecraft. It will make considered judgments as it calculates the appropriate asymmetric responses. If Tehran miscalculates, which is a very real possibility, the now open but low-intensity warfare between the United States and Iran will escalate. Those who, like Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and former U.S..national security adviser John Bolton, have long sought a war with Iran will get one. So will everyone else.

It is hard to avoid the conclusion that the timing of the attack was dictated by the turmoil in American domestic politics. It was preceded by three air strikes on elements of Kataeb Hezbollah for the death of a civilian contractor in Kirkuk. None of these air strikes was anywhere near Kirkuk. They bore the marks of a pre-planned operation looking for a pretext to launch. Just so with the assassination of General Suleimani and Commander Abu Mahdi (whose sobriquet is “Al Muhandis / the Engineer”). The charge that these two were planning attacks on American soldiers and officials could equally well be leveled at U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, White House officials, and U.S. military commanders at all echelons. At what time have such officials on both the Iranian and American sides not been planning such attacks? No concrete evidence has been put forward to justify preemptive defense againt an imminent attack on the United States.

The assassinations seem intended to appease neoconservative critics of President Trump as vacillating and weak in his response to Iranian ripostes to his policy of maximum pressure on Iran. They provide a welcome distraction from the pending impeachment proceedings and appeal to the bloodthirsty instincts of the president’s most ardent supporters. They prepare the way for Mike Pompeo to offset his lack of diplomatic accomplishments with a demonstration of his ruthlessness to the “conservative” voters of Kansas, where he intends to run for the Senate. In the new constitutional order in the United States, in which the separation of powers has been replaced by the separation of parties, the attack was politically expedient despite its blatant violation of the clear language of the U.S. Constitution. The attack thus represents an extrajudicial execution that marks a further departure from constitutional government and the rule of law in the United States.

In foreign policy terms, this attack makes no sense at all. It is not a deterrent to Iran so much as a provocation. It pushes Iraq further into the arms of Iran and invites the humiliating expulsion of U.S. forces from Iraq. It makes every American in Iraq a target for murder or hostage taking. It demonstrates to the world the overt amorality of U.S. policy and the indifference of the United States to the constraints of international law and comity, especially when the object of American hostility is Muslim. It is a strategy-free move, equivalent to beginning a game of chess with only an opening move in mind. It is thus a reminder to the word of the witless hubris and violence with which the United States now conducts its international relations.

Americans, once the most prominent proponents of international law as the regulator of relations between nations, have now fully validated the law of the jungle. We are now likely to experience it.

Here is a French language video that gives the President the benefit of the doubt.

“The assassination of Soleimani is an act of war. Now, Donald Trump would never have taken the chance to start the 3rd World War by ordering the assassination of the Iranian General. He would never have opened a Pandora’s box, never not knowing how Iran was going to react, in the middle of an electoral period. Behind the scenes of history in these capsules. “

Robert Steele: 4th Letter to White House — Esper, Pompeo, Haspel Blame President, After They Set Him Up!


Mr. President,

The NYT article “As Tensions With Iran Escalated, Trump Opted for Most Extreme Measure” with the sentence “By late Thursday, the president had gone for the extreme option. Top Pentagon officials were stunned.” is Mark Esper, Gina Haspel, and Mike Pompeo trying to pin it all on you when we know that your entire team lied to you.

The Zionists lied to you and fabricated the alleged threat. Both NSA and CIA and DIA should have and may have known that. Pompeo is a blustering fat boy out of his depth. Esper is a poser — the Class of 1986 has made it in an environment where no one is held accountable for mistakes. Haspel is just a placeholder for Brennan and his Deep State masters.

You were set up. You were lied to. It’s time you cleaned house and got strategic and intelligence support at the A level, no lies.

Had Mike Flynn, Doug Macgregor, Bill Binney, or I been in the room with you, any one of us would have told you that the Zionists pioneered “talking rocks” to frame Qadafi for terrorist communications (like we faked Patton’s 3rd Army) and NSA, which is totally penetrated by Zionists, lets them get away with this.

I respectfully urge you to listen to Tucker Carlson and Doug Macgregor and me. Invite all of us in for a conversation. You can still fix this but you need to fire Esper, Pompeo, and Haspel and make several deals fast. Your intelligence community is not only ignorant, it is treasonous. They should have told you the General was an official guest of the government of Iraq there for the funeral, and they should have also known that the Supreme Leader would never allow a repeat of Tehran Embassy take-over. The dispersal of the crowds was your truth-teller.

A number of us would like to help you. Accept our offer, please.

I am posting this letter and adding it to my master post,

Semper Fidelis, Robert David Steele
