Mattis denies report of coming US missile strike on Iran

Defense Secretary James Mattis on Friday dismissed as “fiction” an Australian ABC news report that the US could initiate a missile strike against Iran as early a next month. “I have no idea where the Australian news people got that information,” Mattis told reporters. “I’m confident it is not something that’s being considered right now, and I think it’s a complete — frankly, it’s — it’s fiction.”

    To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
    A time to be born, a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
    A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
    A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
    A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
    A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
    A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
    A time to love, and a time to hate;
    A time of war, and a time of peace.
    A time to screw ayatollahs, and a time to to screw them more.

      Anyone who adds to Scripture can expect the curse;
      “God shall add to him the plagues that are written in this book”.
      The rest is great from Ecclesiastes.

    Why deny anything? It is very doubtful and suspect that the Aussies know anything about what the US might do until just right before or after it happens. The B1, B2 and B21 bombers are US based, we already have Aegis class Destroyers, Submarines, and Carrier attack groups in the vicinity, the Satellites already know the exact locations of all Iranian nuclear production and missile sites. This so-called news was probably leaked to keep the Iranians wound up so tight for so long that they will eventually grow lax and make mistakes, If or when the US comes there is nothing Iran can do to stop it. I do not know if Israel will get involved at this point, they might be asked to hit the Iranians in Syria.

      No state launches attacks without informing allies. So to say Australia doesn’t know shows arrogance. Perhaps Australia found out from another ally of the USA.

    Actually, if I were in Gen. Mattis’ great-big shoes, I would have said: “I have no idea where the Australian news people got that information. I’m confident that is not something we are discussing. In fact, the administration already had this discussion back in February of 2017, and Iran IS going to be bombed; AND they will never know what hit them when it does happen. So don’t listen to what these fake news organizations say, come to us, we know exactly what has been said.

      Well, Secretary Mattis has said he doesn’t stay awake nights worrying, he keeps other people up. This sort of interaction can’t make the Iranians comfy!
