This is the Russian-made SA-15 Gauntlet/ Tor missile system that the Iranian military used to bring down Ukrainian flight #PS752, mistaking it for a hostile fighter jet. #Iran #IranvsUSA #IranWar
Claims that #Iran mistook #PS752 for a cruise missile are incorrect. Iran's missile defense systems can tell the difference between a Boeing 737 traveling at 150-180 mph during initial ascent and an incoming tomahawk cruise missile traveling at over 500 mph.
You may remember the CIA-backed coup attempt against Erdogan in Turkey using members of his own military. I'm open to the possibility that #PS752 was shot down by a member of the Iranian military who was not loyal to his own government. It's a stretch, but can't be ruled out yet.

Trump says "all is well" after Iranian strikes on bases hosting U.S. troops
This line appears to be a number comm in retrospect now. i.e. All is well because all is 9. Which yes, that makes sense... I'll explain
breitbart.com/politics/2020/… #IranAttacks #Qanon #IranWar
2.
I cover number comms all the time & the most consistent ones are 6, 9, and 17. Cult 6, flipped cult 9, and super classified 17. The way it works when written is the statement has a specific meaning when paired with the number comm explains the "why"
3.
So Trump was stating to relevant parties that Iran has flipped - A question of "when" is interesting. #Soleimani needed to go and he was a ring wearing top cultist as best I can tell. Perhaps tho Iran gave up his head and this has all been theater?

The United States military was attacked by #Iran. You would think that the Command in Chief would take a few minutes during the evening to speak to the American people. But that would be asking too much. You'll have to wait until after he watches Fox & Friends the next morning.
On the other hand, Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei is currently addressing his nation. #Iran #IranAttacks #IranWar
Ayatollah Khamenei is not giving a prepared speech. He's just talking casually to his audience about his thoughts on everything that has developed.

Iranian media is reporting that a Ukrainian Airlines Boeing 737 passenger plane with 180 people on board just crashed due to technical problems as it departed Tehran for Kiev. If that is true, is it connected to the 5.0 earthquake that just took place? #Iran
Here is the FlightRadar24 info on the Ukrainian passenger jet that crashed shortly after takeoff. My question is... why was a plane with 180 passengers taking off from Tehran in the midst of the chaos? And what were the "technical difficulties" that caused it to crash?
Latest word is that Iranian air defense systems may have accidentally shot down the Ukrainian plane. Still being investigated. And, I'm still wondering why commercial flights were being allowed to take off.

Is anyone surprised that guy who is the CEO of Foundation for Defense of Democracies which is funded by Sheldon Adelson (who wants to nuke Iran) is trying to get this trending? #Iran #IranUsa #IraniansDetestSoleimani

Mind you he was trying to get it trending 2 days before Soleimani was assassinated

I am pretty sure it is a coincidence though.
And then you have this bot like activity spamming the #freeiran2020 hashtag along side #IraniansDetestSoleimani it all very much resembles #warpropaganda #iran #IranvsUSA #IranWar #NoIranWar

#Soleimani #IranWar Plan was to use Gulftainer.
A shipping country that Obama gave a 35 yr lease of Florida's Port Canaveral.
Owners brother is Saddam Hussein's Nuclear Scientist Dr.Jaftar.
Gulftainer was going to use
K club missile system disguised as shipping container.
Gulftainer is now merged with ROSTEC.
Russian State owned CO that produces the K Club Missile system.
Port Canaveral is next a strategic U.S. Naval Base

Gulftainer’s Iraqi co-owner Hamid Dhia Jafar
is the brother and business partner of Saddam Hussein’s rogue nuclear physicist
Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar

Dr. Jafar created Saddam’s “Arab Bomb,” a miniaturized nuclear warhead known as the Iraqi “Beach Ball.”

@RepBrianFitz constantly speaks of his standards for Congress truth & transparency

He unequivocally backs Trump's #Iran action

Could it be because @RepBrianFitz Campaign Donors and or his own portfolio of Defense Stocks rose exponentially?

Last year Defense Contractors spent $84 MILLION lobbying Congress Members like @RepBrianFitz

Defense Contractors benefit from endless wars

Look how their stocks began to rise as soon as Soleimani was killed

This also 100% benefits @RepBrianFitz

Future Proves Past @SecPompeo "..We didn't send pallets of cash to the #Iranians..we didn't create a deal which would have given them a clear path to develop Nuclear weapons" #Iran
👉Kerry traveled WW and meet with foreign heads of State some enemies of the US to undermine Potus
@SecPompeo #Soleimani helped plan the Benghazi attacks
“Soleimani was basically the Osama bin Laden of the Shiite world,” remarked Klein. “Iran is the largest state-sponsor of terrorism in the world, and Soleimani was the commander of that state-sponsor of terror #Iran
@SecPompeo #Soleimani behind the Benghazi massacre of American diplomats
Obama refused to deploy military
Pres. Trump, within hours, sent forces to Iraq, and now, taking out the terror commander who organized that assault on the American embassy #Iran

Can’t wait till this Fake Molvi show ends so I can start my own Azadi Campaign 😇 #Islamabad
The previous tweet was purely out of sarcasm, but after much thought, I realised that the joke’s on me. It was always on me. I tried following the procedure, and I’m tired of asking other’s for help. My faith in Allah is enough. If this is a democracy, then my words will be heard
Dear Prime Minister @ImranKhanPTI , I know it’s a tough time for the Government. Peace talks, the Kashmir Situation, Economic challenges and above all, this Azadi March. I have no affiliation with any political party, I am a Pakistani. I hope you’ll take notice of my request

14. United States decided to label #IRGC terrorists. But who are the real terrorists? Who created, trained, armed & financed the worst terrorist groups in the world?

#Hypocrites #DoubleStandards #Liars #Warlords #USRealTerrorists
Wrong US policies in the Middle East. Sanctions against Iran. Sanctions used by the USA as a war weapon🤨👇🏼

Two important articles on #IranWar legal issues

1. A question many commentators have missed:

Did U.S. drone violate rules of transit when in 'international airspace'?

2. History of how Reagan elided War Powers Resolution in actions against Iran during 1980s Tanker War
<thread>
Great @marknevitt analysis:

"The Missing Piece in US-Iran Drone Dispute: Navigational Freedoms and Strait of Hormuz"
justsecurity.org/64725/the-miss…

I flagged Mark's article was forthcoming in this podcast w/ @djrothkopf @SangerNYT @weinbergersa @EdwardGLuce
podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/goo…
2/3
Also great, great piece by the Todd Buchwald, who worked in Reagan administration on war powers in 1980s Tanker War.

"Anticipating the President’s Way Around the War Powers Resolution on Iran: Lessons of the 1980s Tanker Wars"

1. @HouseForeign demands administration's legal opinions on use of force against #Iran

Letter cites this great essay by Just Security's Brian Egan and @bridgewriter which concludes that efforts to shoehorn #IranWar into #AUMF is "thoroughly unconvincing": justsecurity.org/64645/top-expe…
2. Letter by Chairman @RepEliotEngel and @RepTedDeutch:

"Given the life-and-death stakes of the current situation between the United States and Iran, we can think of no issue where it is more imperative for the Department to explain its rationale."

3. Readers may also be interested in this essay by @jgeltzer (former NSC, DOJ), @LukeHartig (former NSC, DoD) and @rgoodlaw (former DoD)

reaches same conclusion as Egan and @bridgewriter

Timely reminder in Wednesday NYT by @charlie_savage on #IranWar:

"Attorney General William P. Barr harbors unusually broad views of a president’s power to unilaterally start even major wars on his own."

links to this earlier analysis by Savage on Barr: nytimes.com/2019/01/14/us/… ½
Along the lines of Savage's analysis is this important analysis of Bill Barr's extreme theories of presidential power to take the nation to war (eg with #Iran) without Congress involved ...

The Iranian boat came to the rescue of the attacked ship. Trump's claim that they were removing mine evidence in broad daylight is a joke. Look out: We are the punchline. theguardian.com/us-news/2019/j… #Iran
The Straits are #Iran's lifeline. Without it, Iran dies. No way would they commit economic suicide. Nor would Iran sabotage their meeting with Japan's Abe, whom Iran invited to Teheran to help restart negotiations. newsweek.com/iran-gulf-oman…
If you're going to sneak in to plant or retrieve a mine, as the Israelis can tell you, you use mini subs or Klepper kayaks, not big patrol boats that US satellites can photograph. #Iran is a fascist theocracy, but not a stupid fascist theocracy.
