US ready to go for Iran’s Guards bases if Iraqi Shiite proxies attack Al Tanf garrison

US-Iranian tensions this week were ramped up by intelligence of a plot for Iran’s Iraqi proxies to attack the American Al Tanf garrison in E. Syria, which commands the strategic Syrian-Iraqi-Jordanian border intersection. DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources, reporting this exclusively, reveal that Tehran’s master-plotter is Qais al-Khazail, head of the Iraqi Kataib Hezballah militia, and he is collaborating with a fellow proxy, the Asa’ib Ahl Al-Haq.

This intelligence, which reached the head of US CENTCOM, Marine Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, galvanized Washington into action. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo hurried over to Baghdad on Tuesday, May 7 with a warning that US punishment would reach Iranian soil and its Revolutionary Guards bases, if US forces came to harm. On Thursday, the USS Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group sailed into the Red Sea and on Thursday, the Pentagon announced the redeployment of Patriot anti-missile batteries to the Middle East.

These ramped up US deployments followed a high-powered conference, which took place unusually at CIA headquarters in Langley on April 29 at 7 a.m. The top-secret meeting was attended by CIA Director Gina Haskel, Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joe Dunford, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Intelligence Director Dan Coats.

For the Trump administration, an Iranian proxy attack on a US asset or ally is tantamount to direct aggression by the Islamic regime in terms of the American response. The Iraqi Hezballah militia is a faction of the multibranched Iraqi Shiite PMU which takes its orders from the Al Qods chief Gen. Qassem Soleimani. DEBKAfile’s military sources report that in recent months, the PMU has concentrated large scale forces in the western Iraqi province of Anbar next door to the Syrian border This has given Tehran’s plot master Qais al Khazali easy access to his target and time to properly prepare a successful hit. Iran has also provided him with a multi-function arsenal of missiles. They include Fateh 110 missiles which have a range of 300km; Zelzal 2 and Zelzal 3 which can reach targets at distances respectively of 150km and 210 km; and Zulfigar short-range ballistic missiles which have a 1,000km range.

This missile arsenal offers Iran’s proxy chief several options for striking US targets outside Iraq across the Middle East – either instead of or in addition to the projected Al Tanf operation.

Ranged against Iran’s preparations, the Americans have deployed: B-52 bombers to the Al-Udaid Air Base in Qatar; F-35A stealth aircraft to Al-Dhafra base in the UAE; and ordered the USS Abraham Lincoln with strike group take up position in the Red Sea.

      China Economy is now in Checkmate Position since they can’t Risk American Sanctions under Current Trade Talks in Washington Abandon. While the Iranians Demand the EU must do more, both the EU, China and Russia are Impotent and cannot do much either. India Economy has already found purchased Crude Oil elsewhere to maintain its Economy.

      The Simple Economic Reality is Every Nation’s National Interests is Dependent on Oil “Every Day” and Iran’s cannot provide or sell it, and can’t stop that either even it Attacks American Shipping!

      Oil for EU, China, and India are like Heroine they need it Every Day to Survive and cannot Thrive without it. Iran cannot provide it at levels they require Oil either. Nor can Iran attack the other Suppliers that provide it and will just make it even more Valuable to America, Gulf States, and Russia.

        The countries bordering Iran have enough oil from Iran and Iraq , and even Russia , and Terkamans ;
        So the fight is for the existence , and American will have their heads blown , since B-52 will be a nice target to Chinese and Russian proxies in the area , and could be that for 1st time Americans get themselves part of NY blown , and trust it ,what Bush had in 9/11 that time , will not happen now . The Americans better concentrate on their own land of free , since it is facing invasion from about 20 countries ; The invasion already long in progress by Mexican migration , and Cubans . And if Sandinista will decide that is enough , Americans will have a war on every continent , where both India , and China will give them a smell of it , and Russians , soon be visited by Pompeo ,looks like is coming for help ; And help he will get a fight all Nato and Americans will never forget ….Israel should watch itself , its a life target , and should not consider flying over Iraqi space , since they could be nuked from the direction they did never considered. American should go away from ME , or it will theirs and Israeli end.

          The Americans are just itching for Iran to do something stupid. they want regime change and to be honest, Iran can do nothing about it, except retrench back to Iran eventually and keep their people in chains.
          Iran is about oil . that is all it is about.
          losing their position and increased usa production will set them back to the point, people will be in the streets in Tehran, shouting at their leaders.

            Agreed. The mullahs may be frustrated and Soleimani furious at the disrespect of his forces but they aren’t stupid. No one sells them short on THAT score. The bottom line is that a flare-up could cripple their expensive nuke infrastructure investments and weaken their Praetorian to the point where the Ayatollah and his henchmen could find themselves vulnerable to regime overthrow. They’ll suck it up and back down in a timely fashion, all the while saber-rattling.

          This arm-chair “general” is so full of himself, he completely misses the fact that experienced military men with superior Israeli, American and friendly Arab intellegence and satellite information give the US a lot of information from which to make calculated, thoughtful decisions that none of us have at our diposal. What idiot would think that America would send B=52 bombers into a situation where they are helplesss against rockets that would shoot them down? That doesn’t mean miscalculations and mistakes can’t be made, but they are not of the obvious type that any of us could figure out sitting in our comfortable homes.

          Your comments are wishful thinking.For example, the role in combat operations for the B52 has changed significantly.No longer will they fly over hostile enemy territory to deliver their lethal cargo.Instead they will deliver their cruise missiles and smart bombs and other weapon systems from many hundreds of miles away.

        Gaza known as the “Land of Esau” and Israel always respected that throughout History. The Israeli disengagement from Gaza in Hebrew known as, ” תוכנית ההתנתקות, Tokhnit HaHitnatkut”! The Disengagement Plan Implementation Law, was the withdrawal of the Israeli Army from Inside the Gaza Strip, and the dismantling of all Israeli Settlements in the Gaza Strip in 2005.

        When Palestinian Authority was ousted by Hamas it became the Property of Hamas Squatters that have turned into a Hamas Slum of Ruins and Poverty as Hamas Landlords for 1.8 Million Arabs. Don’t blame Israel for Hamas becoming even the Worst Landlord’s after they ousted Palestinian Authority the Former Landlords by the Gaza’s Voting Hamas into Power over Poverty!

        The Iranian Shiia Regime Master’s after 19 Years cannot help Iran’s Servants Hamas Slumlords anymore! Providing Hamas Rocket’s over Gaza’s Prosperity is another Holy Sign that Allah does not favor the Shiia since 632, and 1979 nor Hamas since 2019. Inshallah!

        Ahh yesss, the “medics” too and the pregnant women…
        surprisingly it was a Jihadi rocket that killed a pregnant woman and her little child just recently. they should do more of those.
        Not that i am for killing innocent little children but people like you should be killed when they are little so they dont grow up to be able to write the kind of lies that you publish.

      I wish Iran (there leaders at least) would be destroyed. Unfortunately, we have scriptures to tell us that the Russian Bear and Iran(Persia) will join forces and attack Israel at the battle of Armageddon. (Which isn’t the Euphrates war). So, not only will they survive the war coming soon, but, they will be able to regroup and invade Israel with Russia. It’s funny when you know these things you cringe when Netanyaho tries to make deals with Russia… because you can take it to the bank they will betray Israel

          It is in Ezekial 38-39 I believe.
          It talks about Gog and Magog…which if you research is Russia. Aligned with Persia, gomer, and a few other countries. I would never state something like that unless I knew the scriptures 100%. I’m only hear to spread truths…no interest in spreading false statements. And I it’s my opinion, I will probably say so. So yeah, Russia, Iran, and Israel will all still be here at Armageddon. And of course the wings of a great eagle (USA) will protect the woman (Israel).

            Jacob, you have a Jewish sounding name, but you sound like a practicing Christian and not a practicing Jew who can read the TANACH (Bible) in its original language and understanding.

            I am not belittling this. You are likely very able to serve our Creator in a way that is pleasing to the upper worlds. You also seem to care for the Jewish people. That is appreciated.

            However, I am saying that you are likely reading a translated copy of “other people’s mail” and may not fully grasp all its meaning. From a Jewish viewpoint, prophecy is indeed real and can be fulfilled as stated, but it is not an edit that cannot be changed. And the parable is not always so clear.

            One example from the Torah is that the Creator told Abraham that his descendants would be servants in another land for 400 years. Your namesake’s family did become slaves in Egypt, but not for 400 years.

            Warnings can be given, but “edicts” can be changed. The case of Jonah and Ninevah is another example that played out within the Biblical periods. A few men changing their ways might have saved Sodom, even though it did not turn out that way.

            You must also be careful about reading current events and countries into visions of prophets. Gog may not necessarily be who you think it is. It is a possibility, but very far from a certainty.

            Many directions about behavior for us from the Torah are fairly clear for both Jews and non-Jews. Jews have a few extra sets of directions, like the laws of kosher eating, Sabbath and Holidays. Biblical looks into the future as being something which we can identify now in current events may be fun speculation, but such events are not something set in concrete, nor are they easily identified.

            Was the formation of the USA something that was very specifically identified by Ezekiel? How about Brazil? The current chaos in Venezuela?

            We do all expect and hope for the time when lions and lambs will sit peacefully together. Lets us work together to merit such a time, but we should be careful about making predictions about exactly when and how. It is above our pay grade.

            Thank you for your words…that is the kind of conversations I am seeking. I am an American christian. And I do love the Jewish people. I can’t say to much today because I’m busy with mother’s day, but, I will say that I take the original King James version Bible to the bank. I do look at other translations as well. But, I won’t drift to far from the original. In the Bible they do speak in parables and they do use words that we have to research sometimes. That is the fun part for me. Anyways, I’m not a Bible scholar or anything like that. I do have above average knowledge of IT. but, definitely don’t know everything. America being formed is in a couple spots. I’m pretty sure it’s in Revelations…I’ll have to look. But, it says the wings were clipped from the lion (great Britain) I believe that is the declaration of Independence for the USA! And when you research the animal symbols…both former and current…it’s amazing how accurate that is… because great Britain is our Mother country. Stuff like that is in Revelations. Awesome book!!
            I gotta go…thanks again for your respectful input.

      That would have a calming effect for sure. I don’t see it happening though. I can’t remember how long, but, i’m pretty sure sunnis and shiites have been fighting each other for a very long time. I think what will happen one day soon, is all the muslims from both of those…factions…will join together to try and defeat the enemy that is to them Israel and USA.
      but, that too is just my opinion. I could be way off on that one. What i do know though, is that the
      Euphrates river is 100 % muslim controlled. So, they will definitely be a major player in that war.

    A series of strong, effective strikes against Persia/Iran would calm down Gaza, the Golan, Syria, Yemen and Lebanon. I just don’t see the Persians as willing to stir up that hornet’s nest – yet. They know that Democrats are weaker and much more foolish so they may wait to see what happens in the 2020 elections.
    I hope I’m wrong. I’d like to see Persia reduced now.

    More fake news from the Mossad fake news hub.

    Uncle Sam cannot touch the Persians, and they know it. The meeting was due to the pending annihilation of the mercenaries in Idlib who were armed, trained and funded by the Saud family pedophiles and the antisemitic squatters.

    The illegal occupation of Al Tanf, and the training camps the Dotard has established there, is a problem for the future.

      War solved the Nazi problem. War solved the Japanese kamikaze problem. Both Germany & Japan are now allies of the nations who conquered them. War can solve problems if the goal is total surrender of the enemy. The only thing to prevent that is when politicians and the UN interfere in the pursuit of victory. Wars need to be fought to their final conclusion so that no one is in doubt of the outcome.

    Is there a carrier in the Gulf? I noticed they said the Lincoln is positioned in the Red Sea. The Iranians have speedboats laden with explosives to swarm the US Navy, although they may have adapted the CIWS to deal with this. Still, this is why the Navy is deploying lasers on a lot of ships, but the work is far from complete.

      It looks that way at least…but, we should all remember ( or perhaps no everyone knows) alot of stuff is happening behind the scenes. And several if not all countries are waiting for Trump to release his peace plan. So, I don’t think anything too drastic will happen until then. Unless, it’s Iran or their proxies trying to fulfill there misguided beliefs…which is.. they think it’s their duty (Iran) to start ww3 at just the right time.

    Solomeo Dream is just a Nightmare…..America’s Greatest Show of Power is the Reluctance to Use its Power. Unlike President’s BH Obama, GW Bush, WJ Clinton, and GHW Bush, President DJ Trump like President RW Reagan Rebuilt the American Military and kept another Middle East Campaign Promise of not using the American Military for Political Purposes. Trump and Reagan used American Power as a Deterrence and outlast Failed Totalitarian Regimes. Even North Korea, Iran, Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, China and Russia are now coming to that understanding. The “Smart Nations” may “Test American Resolve”, but only the “Dumb Nations” will actually Challenge Outright and will not Prevail but Fail as well.

      I like your thinking. It’s true. Much like a chess game (which Iranians are good at) just the mere presence of the queen or other weapons in line to attack does wonders to deter the enemy.
      but, all bets are off when you are talking about leaders who want to bring back there Imam by starting ww3. Still, they aren’t stupid. And will wait until the perfect moment.

    Trump has told the muzzies and the ruskies over and over again not to mess with al-Tanf. The last time they tried, 300 ruskies got killed and all of their armor wiped out. He’s warning them again, don’t mess with al- Tanf. That outpost has four other NATO country’s personnel stationed there besides Muslim units being trained there. Don’t mess with it.

    Iran will not directly fight the US. Iran will tell the Houthis in Yemen to hit Saudi Arabia only. This will be a test to see how US may react. Hizbollah will not get involved, IMO.

    The big question is when is Mandelblit going to end the Netanyahu Nightmare by already belated indictment and just trip Netanyahu up so bad that Bolton’s ‘Netanyahu Rescue Mission’ using the USS Lincoln and American lives doesn’t give his Neocon ‘Clean Break War on Iran’ partner in crime a chance to escape. Israel knows the only way to stop Netanyahu at this point is a raw in his face indictment and prevention (successful so far) of him forming a new government

    Mandelblit stated publicly 2 weeks ago that he will IMMEDIATELY INDICT Netanyahu yesterday May 10 because Netanyahu is refusing cooperation with scheduling the Pre-Indictment Festivities Hearing.
    Mueller has the goods on Netanyahu as well over Netanyahu’s conspiracy with Kushner over UN 2334 and that is coming down the pike for Bibi too
    Better to let the Israelis take Netanyahu down 1st – less chit chat/backlash from the peanut gallery/Lobby that way

      Mueller can just dogpile his Netanyahu-Kushner conspiracy against the US ON TOP of Mandelblit’s multiple indictments. The more the merrier! And absolutely Mandelblit should take the 1st stroke, Mueller the 2nd and coup d’grace

      Problem solved – Israel is freed of Netanyahu and so is America. Win Win

        No way Netanyahu gets his war on Iran with the multiple Mandelblit and Mueller indictments all hanging around his neck like a rookery of albatrosses, as the Bolton Walrus impotently circles the spectacle

    Well if you believe Biblical scripture it says nobody knows the hour that the Lord of hosts will come. Wish I had a dime for every mention of Armageddon. It must have happened at least a hundred times already.

    We live our lives as best we can, mind our own business. Our government doesn’t always go along with these simple rules for life and schemes. Those are our son’s and daughters in harms way. They joined voluntarily and believe in their leaders. Perhaps we should choose more carefully. Obama and Hillary combined with both Bush’s couldn’t kill enough. Count your blessings Trump was elected.

    After 30 years of Iran killing American soldiers they need to be punished and punished so hard they never do it again. Forget prophesy as noted he comes as a thief in the night. Holding back, allowing this behavior for fear you know what it leads to encourages more of the same. If they do it, carpet bomb them until they go crazy from the explosions. If they attack here in the States, invade their country and leave it like Carthage. Russia has only nukes to stop this and if they go there then so goes the world because America will unleash.

    I don’t want any deaths period, best people mind their own business and respect others.

    Right now there are so many satellites over Iran, I guess their sky is looks like peppered.
    Iranians have very bad dumb stubborn leaders.
    I feel sorry for them because they will suffer.
    Why, against all warning from some many friends and since years, go on a collision course with the Americans? Stupid bad dumb stubborn leaders, that’s why!

    Jacob…..Welcome but don’t take it Personally if DEBKA does not put up all Messages and Remove some as well. They have Limits and some Social Media Cultures Posters will bring Discussions down to Emotional Attacks more than Content, but I accept both as Free Speech, and at the same time it is DEBKA Website and their Rules, and I respect that as well. Hope you Posts often on DEBKA Subjects that Share in Learning and Teaching as well.

    the clerics in Iran are evil. They claim to be religious, yet their every thought is evil. They are hypocrites and whitewashed tombs.
    It’s sad to know an entire country is in economic despair because their foreign policy, and even their domestic policy, is evil, myopic, and obsessed with self-righteous hatred.
    These men do not know God. They blindly lead their country into a pit, and I hope the Persian people will prevail in ousting them from power, and reclaim their country, and their place as a civilised nation in the world.

    The US will destroy the Iranian oil production for the short term. Without $$$, the Mullahs are finished.
