breezy posted a topic in GEOPOLITICSFirst, let me apologize for this long post. I felt I needed to post about what is going on in Iraq today, because I believe it's very important. Trying to make connections between incidences. I think the stage is being set for something big, and can only hope I'm wrong. At the end of February, the situation in Crimea occurred, with Crimea eventually voting to return to Russian control. We all know the situation in Ukraine has gotten much worse since then. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Russian_military_intervention_in_Ukraine Reread this AIM thread http://forums.thechaniproject.com/topic/6935-celtecs-editeddeleted-post-vyci/ In March, we had the disappearance of MH370. There were rumors it had been flown to Karachi, Pakistan. Pakistan is in possession of nukes, and it had also been rumored that this plane was going to be made into a remote controlled missile. IF TRUE, to attack whom, I wonder? It was mentioned that in order to set off that newly found fault, the explosion would have to be big. Well, how about a nuke inside a Boeing 777 remotely controlled, diving into it?? Aren't the Azores and Tenerife near that newly found fault line? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malaysia_Airlines_Flight_370 Right here at this point I'd suggest going back to AIM threads and reread this one http://forums.thechaniproject.com/topic/7097-aim-issues-cm-alert-for-the-next-72-hours-highest-alert-possible/page-1 and this one http://forums.thechaniproject.com/topic/7079-wat-faugeres/ It is a Fire, intensely hot. Iraqi weapons through Pakistani warm water ports. Faugeres was a REVOLUTIONARY woman. Pakistan has nukes, and a nuke came up missing from the 6 sent from Minot, N.Dakota to Barksdale, La. 5 were recovered, 1 unaccounted for, and could have been floated down the Red River to the GOM and onto a stealth submarine. (wasn't there a Russian sub in the GOM unseen for days at one time a year or so ago?) And wasn't there also the Manthatisi in the GOM during the oil spill? Wasn't there an AIM thread or a burst that got us talking about that sub? and how something was transferred to it or from it? . Remember too there was an attack on a Pakistani weapons depot, on the 18th of April. Then Obama releases 5 hard core terrorists from Guantanamo on May 29th. He did the same thing last year in July, and it was 5 that time too. Wonder what they are up to at this time? IS it possible that they could have been arranging things from prison? Al Quaida also intimated that now there would be more attacks after these 5 were released. Is it possible that they would use these latest 5 as scapegoats for what's to come? Is that why the widely published comment about AlQuaida now being brave enough for more attacks??? (thanks landdownunder for the thought about scapegoats) IF that were the case it would sure point fingers at the ones involved, who released them w/o Congressional approval. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2013/07/obama-secretly-releases-five-taliban-prisoners-from-gitmo-in-exchange-for-peace-talks/ http://www.miamiherald.com/2014/05/31/4149483/us-releases-5-from-guantanamo.html We are all aware of the situation in Syria, and how all these ME countries have been systemically destabilized. Syria, Egypt, Libya, etc. Then Turkey cuts off the flow of water to Syria/which could also affect Iraq. http://english.al-akhbar.com/content/new-turkish-aggression-against-syria-ankara-suspends-pumping-euphrates’-water We hear about the arrest of a very popular Pakistani politician in London on June 3rd. http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/leading-pakistani-politician-arrested-london-23969846 Then the Airport in Karachi, Pakistan is attacked on June 8 http://bigstory.ap.org/article/official-gunmen-attack-pakistans-karachi-airport and apparently again http://www.valuewalk.com/2014/06/attack-near-karachi-airport-asf-academy/ but it's being said this situation is now under control Now today, Iraq has been attacked by ISIS, and several cities have fallen. Iraq Declares 'State of Emergency' After Second-Largest City Gets Overrun June 10, 2014 Iraq is on very precarious footing after Islamic militants essentially rolled over the city of Mosul today, driving out security forces and causing 150,000 residents to flee. The capper to a 48-hour assault on the city by the group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (known, confusingly, as both ISIS and ISIL) is sending shockwaves through the region. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki declared a national "state of emergency" and the U.S. State Department weighed in, calling the situation "extremely serious." snip http://news.yahoo.com/iraq-declares-state-emergency-second-largest-city-gets-213645796.html Invasion in Iraq: Islamists 'feeling their oats' after Bergdahl deal? June 10, 2014 "From the Islamists attacking targets in Afghanistan and Pakistan this week, to an al-Qaida-linked terrorist organization invading and taking over Iraq's second-largest city on Tuesday, some anti-terrorism experts believe President Barack Obama's controversial deal wherein the U.S. traded five top-level terrorist leaders for one questionable POW -- Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl -- has not only caused jihadists to celebrate another victory, but emboldened them. "These terrorists -- whether in Afghanistan, Iraq, Gaza or Nigeria -- are really 'feeling their oats' and this latest victory in Iraq must cause the U.S. government to at least reevaluate its terrorism policy," said former police counterterrorism unit member Jorge Gestaud." snip http://www.examiner.com/article/invasion-iraq-islamists-feeling-their-oats-after-bergdahl-deal Iraq's prime minister calls for state of emergency after Mosul attack June 10, 2014 "Islamic militants in Iraq overran the city of Mosul on Tuesday, gaining control of Nineveh provincial headquarters, the airport, two television stations and other facilities, authorities said. The militants, who were affiliated with the Al Qaeda splinter group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, reportedly took control of most of the nation’s second-largest city after a four-hour battle with security forces. Past fighting had not resulted in the collapse of security forces that followed the battle Monday night and Tuesday. Prime Minister Nouri Maliki called for parliament to declare a state of emergency and urged international organizations such as the United Nations, the Arab League and the European Union to support Iraq's mission in “combating terrorism.” The attack was seen as a bid by militants to expand their influence in Iraq and neighboring Syria, officials said.z' snip http://www.latimes.com/world/middleeast/la-fg-iraq-mosul-militants-attack-20140610-story.html The following link has videos and says the soldiers fled w/o taking weapons/uniforms http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/iraq/10888958/Al-Qaeda-seizes-Iraqs-third-largest-city-as-terrified-residents-flee.html http://blogs.timesofisrael.com/the-fall-of-mosul-and-the-end-of-the-sykes-picot-map/ ISIS now controls the entire Euphrates basin from Raqqa through Deir Ezzor, al-Bukamal, and Fallujah https://twitter.com/Syrian_Intifada/status/476410577388961792/photo/1 BREAKINGNEWS #ISIS SEIZED ALL FIGHTER JETS&ATTACK HELICOPTERS @ #MOSUL AIRPORT.D IRAQ'I PARLIAMENT CALLS4A #US INTERVENTION <<at noon, Pacific time As Mosul falls to ISIS militants, doubts over US-trained Iraqi security forces June 10, 2014 "Militants from ISIS, an al Qaeda offshoot, now control much of Iraq's largest city in the north, underscoring the group's growing strength and the failure of Iraqi troops to repel insurgents.

Obama to threaten Iran with military strike in June, Israeli media reports http://rt.com/usa/obama-israel-military-june-503/ <<<not so sure if this is actually true, his words were strong, but perception is the key here. In the meantime, what is Israel up to? Do they now have a clear shot at Iran? How about the Saudi's, The Muslim Brotherhood? I think this is all connected, and where is MH370? Didn't I read somewhere that a commercial plane was hijacked from Karachi when the airport was attacked? What is the US up to, in all of this? Which countries are backing whom in all of these conflicts on the sneak? Who gave the orders for those military WE armed and trained to go and leave all weapons behind. Why did we train them to defend if that was never the intent? Just so this could be played in such a manner, so that the weapons could be given to ISIS on the sneak, instead of directly? How about the Turks/Kurds in all of this? Folks, I don't believe this is over, instead, I think all the recent incidences are connected, and that it is working towards one end goal. I don't think I will be surprised by anything that happens in the next couple weeks.

However, if you think I'm daft, you don't have to say so. LOL One last thought, these surprise attacks were not planned since those 5 were released, they have been being planned a long long time.
