On Sept. 9, 2001, the Iranian regime directed an assassination in Afghanistan.
Ahmad Shah Massoud, the powerful commander of the United Islamic Front for the Salvation of Afghanistan (also known as The Northern Alliance) opposition to the Taliban, was killed in a town in northeastern Afghanistan. Two al-Qaida suicide bombers posing as journalists had gained direct access to him, ostensibly for an interview. A powerful bomb concealed inside their camera blew up, killing Massoud, who died en route to a hospital.
The killers, of North African background, had been recruited by Iran in Belgium, trained, equipped, and inserted into Massoud's presence in collaboration with al-Qaida and the Taliban.
In a June 14, 2022 op-ed in the Washington Post, Corey Saylor, the Director of Research and Advocacy at the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), issued a demand to the administration of newly-elected Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin and Lieutenant Governor Winsome Earle-Sears.
According to recent reporting from the Lude Media network inside China, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its People's Liberation Army (PLA) are planning to instigate conflict in the South China Sea by triggering friction between the People's Republic of China (PRC) and Japan.
Stirring up trouble over the disputed Senkaku Islands and various atolls and coral reefs will be used in an attempt to provoke Japan to fight back. Then, per this reported plan, the CCP will attempt to resurrect regional tensions dating back to World War II by accusing Japan of "new Japanese militarism."
According to an audio recording, reportedly leaked out of a recent high-level meeting that took place in Beijing, China, among senior officers of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Guangdong Military Region of the Southern Command, as well as Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials, the People's Republic of China (PRC) is actively preparing to put the country on a war footing.
Plans discussed at the early May meeting focused on a surprise military attack against Taiwan and seizure of the first island chain of archipelagos out from the East Asian mainland that includes territory belonging to Indonesia, Japan, the Philippines and Russia (the disputed Kuril Islands).
In a April 24, 2022 interview with Iran's ISCA News, as reported by the Middle East Media Research Institute, Iranian Majles member Ali Motaheri said the quiet part out loud. Although no longer serving in the Iranian parliament and currently a private Iranian citizen, it is hard to believe Motaheri would have spoken so openly without at least tacit regime acquiescence.
What exactly did Motaheri say?
He told the interviewer that Iran's goal from the beginning of its nuclear program was in fact to build a nuclear bomb. He added that Iran's failure was to keep that purpose secret until it was ready to openly test a nuclear device.
