The part about Iran is happening in the news today.  I skimmed the article and took out these quotations.  Now, I'll go back and read it all.

 

Kim prophesied about a future leader of America, and he stated, I heard gold. I wasn’t sure if this was attached to his name. He will restore the fortunes in this nation because of his brilliance.” Kim went on to say, “This man will throttle the enemies of Israel.”  ("This prophecy was declared one year and 4 months before a political outsider, Donald Trump declared, his candidacy in June of 2015.")

 

“The Dow at 20,000 points. All of this connects to a massive breakthrough with regard to the DINAR.”

 

 

The Spirit of God is speaking now over the region of Iraq, over the region of Iran, over the regions of the Middle East and southern Asia. I am speaking that I may release resources, and there will be a grave surrender that will take place in the months to come. I want to free you, every one of you, My people, to be able to stretch out their hand to the lonely, to the hungry, to the poor, and feed them and clothe them. This is My desire,” says the Lord.

“Therefore, there shall be a break in the financial system in the Middle East, the Dinar.” God said, “When things seem at their worst, I shall bring it forth and I shall free them up. There shall be a prosperity in a place where you least expect it. The prayers of My people in Iran and the prayers of My Christian people that have come forth from Iraq and from Palestine – yes Palestine – and even those regions, I will hear their prayers and I will do something marvelous and will affect this nation,” says the Lord. “You put your hand in the hand of Iran? I say to you, I will remove the hand of America out of the hand of Iran,” says the Lord, “and I will free up My people.”

Trump accuses Iran of the embassy attack ... and redefines Washington's policies in Iraq

Pompeo holds the Baghdad government responsible for protecting American interests
Wednesday - 6 Jumada I 1441 AH - 01 January 2020 AD Issue number [15009]
 
 
1577807007934045700.jpg?itok=ZHxvuKVq
Elements of the "crowd" write the phrase "Soleimani Qaidi" in reference to the Iranian general Qassem Soleimani on the wall of the American embassy yesterday (AFP)
Washington: Elie Youssef
US President Donald Trump blamed Iran for masterminding the attack on the US embassy in Baghdad, and called on Iraqis to "be free" from Tehran's hegemony.
"Iran killed an another site, and it wounded a lot," Trump said in a tweet. We have responded strongly, and we will always do so. Now Iran is planning the attack on the American embassy in Iraq, and they will bear full responsibility, and we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the embassy. We have informed them of that. ”
In a later tweet, Trump told the Iraqis: "Those who want freedom and do not want to submit to Iran's domination and control: This is your time."
Trump's tweets represented a shift in the American position towards the head of the American administration directly, and not from any other official, about the future of dealing with the Iraq file and the role that Iran plays in it. His tweet came after similar statements from a number of American officials, that the policy that was followed by the Barack Obama administration has ended, and that the policy of blackmail that Tehran has been adopting with Washington no longer works.
Later, US State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagos said that Minister Mike Pompeo had made separate phone calls to Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi and President Barham Saleh from his Washington office. Ortagos added in a statement that Pompeo made it clear that the United States will continue to defend the Americans who are already there to support an independent and sovereign Iraq. The statement added that Abdul-Mahdi and Saleh assured the minister that they bear a serious responsibility and will guarantee the safety and security of American individuals and property.
Pompeo said in a tweet: «We defended in a defensive manner the Iranian proxy attack that killed an American citizen and wounded American and Iraqi soldiers. Now Iranian-backed groups are threatening our embassy in Baghdad. ” He added that he had spoken with Saleh and Abdul-Mahdi to confirm their commitment to protecting American citizens and buildings.
Although some Iraqi security officials attempted to justify how the “popular crowd” demonstrators managed to enter the heavily fortified “Green Zone” so easily, American circles questioned those justifications, saying that peaceful Iraqi demonstrators who had previously sought to cross the bridge leading to that area, They were being severely and repulsed, which indicates that collusion has occurred between the “Popular Mobilization” demonstrators and the security force involved in protecting the Green Zone.
Minister Pompeo had contacted each of: Prince Muhammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Deputy Crown Prime Minister and Minister of Defense of Saudi Arabia, and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, to discuss Iran's destabilizing behavior in the region and the recent raids of American forces on sites Hezbollah in Iraq, according to a US State Department statement. Pompeo, in a tweet on Twitter, pledged that Washington would continue to work with Saudi Arabia and the UAE to confront Iran.
The US Secretary of State said that he had fruitful dialogues with both the Saudi crown prince and the crown prince of Abu Dhabi to discuss attacks against coalition forces in Iraq last Friday.
Ortagos said in a statement that Pompeo discussed with the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia the attacks on the coalition forces, and agreed that "the Iranian regime and its proxies constitute a destabilizing force", and both sides emphasized that they would continue to work together to counter this threat.
The statement added that Pompeo also spoke to Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and the two sides expressed deep concern about the attacks of the "Hezbollah Brigades" against the coalition forces in Iraq. They agreed that the US measures taken were a response to protect coalition interests and were "defensive, appropriate and justified."
Tony Badran, a researcher at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, told Asharq Al-Awsat that the recent Iranian escalation against the United States may be a big mistake in light of Tehran's lack of awareness of the changes that have taken place in the adopted American policy towards it.
He added that Trump's brief and largely expressive tweet about this transformation carried three messages: that the responsibility lies with Iran directly, and that the Iraqi government is responsible for protecting the American embassy, and that the United States is ready and will repeat strikes if not only its interests and citizens are endangered; And for its allies as well.
Badran added that the fears that this escalation would jeopardize the presence of the American forces and thus may lead to a decision to withdraw them from Iraq, is not out of the question because the biggest victim of this exit will be Iraq itself, and Iran may find itself more encircled and besieged if Washington decides to withdraw And impose sanctions on Iraq.
Badran asked whether Baghdad was able to face those sanctions, and its ability to maintain the exemptions granted to them from Washington to continue importing electric energy and fuel from Iran, and the ability of its financial, monetary and economic institutions to face US sanctions against them. He concluded by saying that it is quite early to talk about the withdrawal of American forces from Iraq, especially since the Trump administration will not repeat the policies of his predecessor Obama, who made it hostage to the nuclear agreement with Tehran, and Washington appeared to be fighting the Sunnis in Iraq in the interest of Iran.

The United States of America sends additional forces to protect its embassy..and the "foreign" of Iraq is suspended
United States Secretary of Defense
 December 31, 2019 9:54 PM

 

Direct: The Minister of Defense of the United States of America announced that his country will send additional forces to Baghdad to protect its embassy after it was attacked by pro-Iranian militia elements.

"The Ministry of Defense is working closely with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to ensure the safety of our embassy and our employees in Baghdad, and we will send additional forces to support our embassy staff, " Mark Esber said in a statement on Tuesday .

"As in all countries, we rely on the host country’s forces to help protect our people in the country," Esber continued.

Mark Esber pointed out that his country called on the government of Iraq to fulfill its international responsibilities to do so.

"The United States continues to support the Iraqi people, a free, sovereign and prosperous Iraq," said the United States Secretary of Defense.

For its part, the Iraqi Foreign Ministry said, in a statement on Tuesday evening, that it was closely following the gathering of demonstrators in the United States of America in front of its gate, in protest against the bombing of sections of the popular crowd, and the resulting victims.

The Iraqi Foreign Ministry stressed that the diplomatic missions operating on Iraq are subject to high respect and appreciation, and that the Ministry is committed to preserving its sanctity in line with the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, and the need not to jeopardize its security.

The Foreign Ministry pointed out that the Iraqi Prime Minister called on everyone to leave immediately, away from these places.

The Prime Minister stressed, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, that any aggression or provocation to embassies and foreign representations is an act that security forces will strictly prohibit and that the law will be punished with the harshest penalties .

Watch ... the Marines launch to protect the American embassy in Iraq
Marines 
The American army has sent a group of special forces "Marines" to the headquarters of the American embassy in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, to secure the embassy headquarters after storming it from protesters protesting against America targeting the headquarters of the popular crowd in Iraq, according to the Russian Sputnik Network, and US officials said that the Pentagon today sent about 100 of US Marines to the American embassy in Baghdad to enhance security after Iraqi protesters angry at the American air strikes on the "popular crowd" forces supported by Iran in Iraq and Syria stormed the embassy complex .

 

Defense Secretary Mark Espire said the new forces would help "ensure the security of our embassy and our personnel working in Baghdad ."


The Esper statement came as television footage showed dozens of protesters standing along the walls of the embassy compound and hurling stones at them .

According to "Stars and Stripes," a newspaper issued by the US military, a US official said that infantry from the 2nd Battalion, 7th Marine, were transferred early Tuesday afternoon from the US base in Kuwait to the embassy in Baghdad.

The Marines, assigned to Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force-Crisis Response-Central Command (SPMAFTF-CR-CC), responded after the State Department’s urgent request for protection at the embassy.

 

 

Videos and photos released by the Department of Defense show the Marines loading up in MV-22 Ospreys from Kuwait and deploying at the U.S Embassy in Baghdad.

The SPMAFTF-CR-CC is ground force deployed to the Middle East that specializes in crisis response, and mobilizes quickly to situations like the unrest surrounding the embassy.

In a statement, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper confirmed that protection measures were underway.

“The Department of Defense is working closely with the State Department to ensure the security of our Embassy and personnel in Baghdad,” Esper said.

“We have taken appropriate force protection actions to ensure the safety of American citizens, military personnel and diplomats in country, and to ensure our right of self-defense. We are sending additional forces to support our personnel at the Embassy,” Esper continued.

“As in all countries, we rely on host nation forces to assist in the protection of our personnel in country, & we call on the Gov’t of Iraq to fulfill its international responsibilities to do so. The US continues to support the Iraqi people & a free, sovereign, & prosperous Iraq,” he added.

The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad was stormed by pro-Iranian protesters early Tuesday, less than two days after the U.S. carried out airstrikes on five sites belonging to the Iran-backed Iraqi militia, Kata’ib Hezbollah.

The protesters set fire to the embassy’s perimeter, smashed windows and doors, and marched and chanted while shouting “death to America” and “down, down America.”

 

Embassy employees and diplomats were forced to evacuate the location and are now in hiding.

The U.S. airstrikes conducted on Sunday came in response after the Kata’ib Hezbollah militia launched a 30+ rocket attack on the K1 military base near Kirkuk, Iraq, which left one U.S. defense contractor dead, and four other U.S. service members injured, according to a Pentagon statement.

The U.S. airstrikes killed 25 militia members and injured 51, and the militia vowed to strike back on the U.S. in revenge.

  • At least 500 paratroopers are already en route and alert brigade of 4,000 has been put on notice
  • A swarm of pro-Iran Shiite militiamen attacked the US embassy in Baghdad, Iraq earlier on Tuesday
  • Militia fighters broke through the compound gate and set fires within the high-security complex

  • Trump has vowed to hold Tehran accountable for the embassy attack, which is in retaliation for US air strikes 
  • Those USAF strikes were themselves in retaliation for last week's killing of an another site in Kirkuk
  • Trump tweeted Tuesday: 'Iran killed an another site, wounding many. We strongly responded, and always will Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible'

 

PUBLISHED: 18:39 EST, 31 December 2019 | UPDATED: 19:44 EST, 31 December 2019 

 

The U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division’s alert brigade has reportedly been issued orders to deploy rapidly to Kuwait following an attack on the American embassy in Baghdad by a pro-Iranian mob.

At least 500 paratroopers are already making their way to Kuwait, and a Deployment Ready Brigade of 4,000 has been put on notice for imminent deployment, three U.S. defense officials told Fox News on Tuesday.

The Pentagon is expected to issue a statement in the coming hours about the deployment. 

The snap deployment comes amid rapidly rising tensions between Iran and the U.S. and a series of violent ***-for-tat escalations between the two countries.

 
Earlier on Tuesday, President Donald Trump announced that the US embassy in Baghdad was safe after some 6,000 pro-Iran militia fighters stormed the compound, set walls ablaze and chanted 'Death to America!' in a violent retaliation for American air strikes.

The president doubled down in his warning to Iran, saying their government will be held 'fully responsible' for the attack that forced the Pentagon to send 100 Marines as reinforcements to the Iraqi embassy. 

'The U.S. Embassy in Iraq is, & has been for hours, SAFE! Many of our great Warfighters, together with the most lethal military equipment in the world, was immediately rushed to the site. Thank you to the President & Prime Minister of Iraq for their rapid response upon request,' Trump tweeted Tuesday evening. 

'Iran will be held fully responsible for lives lost, or damage incurred, at any of our facilities. They will pay a very BIG PRICE! This is not a Warning, it is a Threat. Happy New Year!' he added.

      Remember the guy who got on a plane with a bomb built into his shoe and tried to light it?

      Did you know his trial is over?
      Did you know he was sentenced?
      Did you see/hear any of the judge's comments on TV or Radio?
      Didn't think so.!!!

      Everyone should hear what the judge had to say.

      Ruling by Judge William Young, US District Court.

      Prior to sentencing, the Judge asked the defendant if he had anything to say His response: After admitting his guilt to the court for the record, Reid also admitted his 'allegiance to Osama bin Laden, to Islam, and to the religion of Allah,' defiantly
      stating, 'I think I will not apologize for my actions,' and told the court 'I am at war with your country.'

      Judge Young then delivered the statement quoted below:

      Judge Young: "Mr. Richard C. Reid, hearken now to the sentence the Court imposes upon you.

      On counts 1, 5 and 6 the Court sentences you to life in prison in the custody of the United States Attorney General. On counts 2, 3, 4 and 7, the Court sentences you to 20 years in prison on each count, the sentence on each count to run consecutively. (That's 80 years.)

      On count 8 the Court sentences you to the mandatory 30 years, again to be served consecutively to the 80 years just imposed. The Court imposes upon you for each of the eight counts a fine of $250,000, that's an aggregate fine of $2 million.
       
      The Court accepts the government's recommendation with respect to restitution and orders restitution in the amount of $298.17 to Andre Bousquet and $5,784 to American Airlines.

      The Court imposes upon you an $800 special assessment. The Court imposes upon you, five years supervised release simply because the law requires it. But the life sentences are real life sentences so I need go no further.

      This is the sentence that is provided for by our statutes. It is a fair and just sentence. It is a righteous sentence.

      Now, let me explain this to you. We are not afraid of you or any of your terrorist co-conspirators, Mr. Reid. We are Americans. We have been through the fire before.
       
      There is too much war talk here and I say that to everyone with the utmost respect. Here in this court, we deal with individuals as individuals and care for individuals as individuals. As human beings, we reach out for justice.

      You are not an enemy combatant. You are a terrorist. You are not a soldier in any war. You are a terrorist. To give you that reference, to call you a soldier, gives you far too much stature.
       
      Whether the officers of government do it, or your attorney does it, or if you think you are a soldier, you are not-----, you are a terrorist. And we do not negotiate with terrorists. We do not meet with terrorists. We do not sign documents with terrorists. We hunt them down one by one and bring them to justice.

      So war talk is way out of line in this court. You are a big fellow. But you are not that big. You're no warrior. I've known warriors. You are a terrorist. A species of criminal that is guilty of multiple attempted murders. In a very real sense, State Trooper Santiago had it right when you first were taken off that plane and into custody and you wondered where the press and the TV crews were, and he said:

      'You're no big deal. '

      You are no big deal.

      What your able counsel and what the equally able United States attorneys have grappled with and what I have, as honestly as I know how, tried to grapple with, is why you did something so horrific. What was it that led you here to this courtroom today?

      I have listened respectfully to what you have to say. And I ask you to search your heart and ask yourself what sort of unfathomable hate led you to do what you are guilty, and admit you are guilty, of doing? And, I have an answer for you. It may not satisfy you, but as I search this entire record, it comes as close to understanding as I know.

      It seems to me, you hate the one thing that to us is most precious. You hate our freedom.
       
      Our individual freedom. Our individual freedom to live as we choose, to come and go as we choose, to believe or not believe as we individually choose. Here, in this society, the very wind carries freedom. It carries it everywhere from sea to shining sea.
       
      It is because we prize individual freedom so much that you are here in this beautiful courtroom, so that everyone can see, truly see, that justice is administered fairly, individually, and discretely. It is for freedom's sake that your lawyers are striving so vigorously on your behalf, have filed appeals, will go on in their representation of you before other judges.

      We Americans are all about freedom. Because we all know that the way we treat you, Mr. Reid, is the measure of our own liberties. Make no mistake though. It is yet true that we will bear any burden; pay any price, to preserve our freedoms. Look around this courtroom. Mark it well.
       
      The world is not going to long remember what you or I say here. The day after tomorrow, it will be forgotten, but this, however, will long endure.

      Here in this courtroom and courtrooms all across America , the American people will gather to see that justice, individual justice, justice, not war, individual justice, is in fact being done.
       
      The very President of the United States through his officers, will have to come into courtrooms and lay out evidence on which specific matters can be judged and juries of citizens will gather to sit and judge that evidence democratically, to mold and shape and refine our sense of justice.

      See that flag, Mr. Reid? That's the flag of the United States of America . That flag will fly there long after this is all forgotten. That flag stands for freedom. And it always will.

      Mr. Custody Officer. Stand him down."

      So, how much of this Judge's comments did we hear on our TV sets? We need more judges like Judge Young.
