Robert Steele: WORLD WAR III? UPDATE 15: Thierry Meyssan on Mutual Assured Withdrawal

Peace Intelligence

UPDATE 15 Thierry Mayssan.  UPDATES in order as published.



It has been my duty – and my honor – to work with such stellar strategic intellects as Col Doug Macgregor, himself a candidate for both Secretary of Defense and National Security Advisor positions during the first Trump Administration, and to be a loyal supporter and admirer of General Michael Flynn, Trump’s first National Security Advisor who was framed by the FBI and the Zionists to remove him from the White House. My observations below are informed by my past as a CIA spy and creator of the Marine Corps Intelligence Activity (MCIA), and by my non-fiction reading including hundreds of books on the corrupt, dysfunctional, and even treasonous US national security personalities and institutions.

Here are my conclusions:

01 Israel has been trying desperately to force a war with Iran, partly to save war-criminal Benjamin Netanyahu and partly to continue its long standing strategy of destabilization to divide and conquer the Middle East.

02 The primary war-mongering within Iraq is being done by Israel and the Kurds, with the US forces more like a supporting clown show.

03 The “campers” at the US Embassy, thankfully dispersed now, were intended to deceive President Trump into thinking that an Embassy take-over was imminent, similar to that which occurred in Iran under President Carter. Several of us helped end that theatrical show.

04 If Trump did approve this assassination, he was deceived into thinking it was the equivalent of a Bin Laden assassination (never mind that Bin Laden – and ISIS – were both created by the Zionists and the CIA with Pentagon funding and equipment) and he was not told that the assassination of Major General Qassem Soleimani within Iraqi territory is right up there with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand that was used as a casus belli for WWI.

05 Trump is surrounded by four pathological networks of liars: the US Army West Point Class of 1986 (Esper, Pompeo, Urban), Christian Zionists (Pompeo, others), Zionist agents (Kushners, both of them), and CIA Zionists (Brennan, Haspel, others). While his new National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien, is doing some spectacularly good work in eliminating Obama war-mongers and agents of foreign powers form the National Security Council, he may not have the nuanced grasp of history and current biographics needed to protect the President from these four networks of liars who favor war with Iran at any cost.

06 Both the US Mainstream Media (MSM) and social media (#GoogleGestapo) are committed to Zionist desires for war with Iran, and careful to cover up the true costs of our wars in the Middle East including what are known as Fallujah Babies – the result of depleted uranium used in armor plating and armor-piercing projectiles.

07 A proportional response by Iran would not be a strike on US forces in the region, but rather the assassination, within the USA, of Mark Esper. I say  this not to encourage such a reaction,, but to make clear to all those who read this article that this is what the USA has done to Iran, while also violating Iraqi sovereignty in a manner worthy of the International Criminal Court.

Below is my letter to President Trump submitted to the White House comment line this morning at 0542 Eastern Time.


Mr. President,

You have been schlonged by DoD and CIA and the US Army Class of 1986. The assassination of Major General Qassem Soleimani within Iraqi territory is right up there with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand that was used as a casus belli for WWI.

If you actually gave this order, you need to consider the possibility that everyone that advised you to do so is an agent of influence for Zionist Israel, and fire them.

Right now you need to be thinking about damage control. You are NOT in control of the US Government (as JFK was told by Schlesinger when he was angry over the missiles not being pulled from Turkey as he had ordered).  Rule 1 in Washington according to Mort Halperin in Bureaucratic Politics and Foreign Policy is “Lie to the President if you can get away with it.”

Mike Flynn has a better grip on this stuff than your current team. I earnestly urge you to determine if this was a CIA drone or a DoD drone, and then very publicly fire both the Secretary of Defense and the Director of the CIA, transfer the CIA drones to DoD and terminate their use as assassination devices (most of their [alleged] successes are lies, you are being lied to).

I pray this message reaches you but have no faith that it will. I am doing my duty.  To stop war with Iran, you need to fire Esper and Haspel and put Pompeo on a path out the door. PNG’ing the Israeli Ambassador would not hurt at all.

The West Point 1986 class is schlonging you.  At the same time I believe that Gina Haspel is covering up for John Brennan and not cooperating fully in providing the available records on Brennan’s “green phone” calls to and from the UK with MI-6 and GCHQ.  Combine those with an NSA print-out of every unmasking as Bill Binney and I have recommended to the AG, and you have it all.

I am praying for you. Anyone who supported this insane strike and assassination is an enemy of the USA.

Semper Fidelis,
Robert David Steele

At this most delicate time in the history of the Middle East, I reiterate my view that the restoration of Palestine to the Palestinians is inevitable; the withdrawal of US forces and the closure of US bases in the Middle East (and hopefully around the world) is inevitable; and the degree to which our President is a prisoner in the White House, being lied to by four pathological networks, can and should be considered by the leaders of Iran, Iraq, China, and Russia.

In my view, the best appropriate response at this time is for Iraq to insist that all US forces – and all US “diplomats” as well as contractors (including particularly Exxon employees) leave Iraq. Iraq should also work with Iran and Russia to expel Israeli forces from the Kurdish zone in Iraq.

Escalation of this matter serves the Zionists – no one else. Given our President’s “capture” and our President’s vulnerability to liars – to enemies of America within the White House – to traitors – I humbly and respectfully recommend prudence on the part of Iran, and decisive action on the part of Iraq. Expel all foreigners. Work with Russia to hunt down and kill any Israeli forces that remain behind. Put the Israeli heads on stakes in the public square of Baghdad. This assassination may have been carried out by the USA, but only in our capacity as “useful idiots” in service to the Zionists.

Let this be my contribution to peace this day.

May God Bless each of us and may God have mercy on the souls of those who do great evil without understanding just how evil they have become.

Robert Steele: White House Correspondence on Stopping WWIII

Mr. President,

You were schlonged by the West Point Class of 1986 and the Zionists. Your in-laws were no help at all. Here is what one of my most important Pentagon sources told me yesterday:

– – –

Soleimani was in Baghdad to ensure the Shiite Arabs demonstrating in front of the embassy did not carry weapons or harm any Americans. Inside Iran more than half the population is glad he’s gone, but now fears war with us is inevitable and will destroy Iran.

– – –

I lost all respect for the integrity of the US Government after Dick Cheney enabled 9/11 and then invaded Iraq and Afghanistan on the basis of 935 lies documented in the book by that title. You have been lied to.

The good news is that this can still be fixed. I recommend the following decisive steps over the week-end:

01 Call Rouhani, share the above Pentagon report with him and ask if that is true. Then assure him you were lied to and will be taking steps immediately to calm the waters.

02 Call your Iraqi counterpart, share the above Pentagon report with him and ask if that is true. Then assure him you were lied to and will be taking steps immediately to calm the waters.

03 Fire Mark Esper and Gina Haspel [this week-end].

04 Withdraw all US forces from Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria. Bring them — and their wallets and all the support jobs — home.

05 Order the immediate cessation of all drone and ground assassination programs (you are being lied to, 80% or more of the targets are not worthy).

06 Send someone you trust that does not work for the Zionist-controlled Department of State to talk to both the leaders of  Iran and of Iraq about reparations for both the war based on lies including the Fallujah babies, and blood money for this specific assassination.

As I have zero faith in this channel, I am adding this letter to for the record.

You still have my confidence.

Semper Fidelis,
Robert David Steele

UPDATE 4: General Was in Iraq to Stop Attack on US Embassy; Zionists Fabricated Signals Intelligence: Decision Was Domestic Political and ZERO Strategic Thought Was Present

ROBERT STEELE: DefDog #1 in UPDATE 3 is compelling evidence that the President was lied to by his Zionist-controlled advisors.  To that we now add multiple reports that the Zionists fabricated signals intelligence that is simply not credible; that the decision was political and partly to support Fat Boy Pompeo's run for the Senate in Kansas; and that no strategic thinking was present at any time. I myself have already gone on record as saying that this opens the door for the eventual assassination by Iran of our Secretary of Defense; and Thierry Maysan in UPDATE 3 makes the obvious but vital point — one I have conveyed to the White House and the Secret Service — with respect to the Zionists and neo-cons (including Pompeo) now being ready to assassinate President Trump directly, blame it on Iran, and elevate alleged murderous pedophile Mike Pence, a total dolt and captive of the Deep State, to the Presidency. On a positive note, I believe President Trump has a mastery of back channels into Iran, Iraq, China, and Russia, and this is all not going to as badly as some of us feared at first.  He now getting the truth from many of us. I still trust the plan.

Veterans Today: Faked Israeli Intercept Pushes Trump into War…Fool me once…

Gordon Duff has a very unhealthy obsession with Trump's alleged past, I recommend you ignore that and focus on the Zionist history of faking signals starting with “talking rocks” within Qadaffi's compound fabricating radio traffic with fake terrorists, much as we simulated Patton's fictitious 3rd Army during the lead up to WWII.  The Zionists want WWIII. The US public does not.

Sample Zionist/CIA bullshit :

There is one error in this article.  Mossad has in fact sought to assassinate this individual in the past and been forbidden to do so by the USA. What changed was the fabricated Zionist signals intelligence and Trump's obession with domestic political standing, combined with the strategic idiocy and lack of integrity of his most senior national security advisors.

CNN: Fox's Tucker Carlson breaks with colleagues and criticizes Trump's strike on Iranian general

Here is a long email from US Ambassador Chas Freeman published with permission.

This was not a retaliation, as claimed, but the pre-planned exploitation of a pretext to assassinate a foreign official designated as an enemy as well as the commander of an Iraqi militia hostile to the United States.  It was an act of war that will inevitably evoke reprisal.  Iran has already promised that it will exact “savage” retribution for the murder of a senior official of its government by the United States.  Major General Qasim Suleimani was the equivalent of the U.S. national security adviser or the commanders of  CENTCOM, SOCOM, and SOCCENT.  All are now potential Iranian targets.  In Iraq itself, the followers of Abu Mahdi (Al Muhandis) in Kataeb Hezbollah will seek their own revenge.  The fact that they are part of the Iraqi national security establishment and armed forces is not irrelevant.  The Iraqi government, already under pressure to expel U.S. forces from their country, may now find it politically impossible not to do so.  Kataeb Hezbollah is likely to be joined in its campaign against U.S. forces and officials in Iraq by other patriotic militias, including some historically hostile to both it and Iran.

The Iranian government seldom makes decisions in haste.  It is the heir to one of the world's longest and greatest traditions of politico-military statecraft.  It will make considered judgments as it calculates the appropriate asymmetric responses.  If Tehran miscalculates, which is a very real possibility, the now open but low-intensity warfare between the United States and Iran will escalate.  Those who, like Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and former U.S..national security adviser John Bolton, have long sought a war with Iran will get one.  So will everyone else.

It is hard to avoid the conclusion that the timing of the attack was dictated by the turmoil in American domestic politics.  It was preceded by three air strikes on elements of Kataeb Hezbollah for the death of a civilian contractor in Kirkuk.  None of these air strikes was anywhere near Kirkuk.  They bore the marks of a pre-planned operation looking for a pretext to launch.  Just so with the assassination of General Suleimani and Commander Abu Mahdi (whose sobriquet is “Al Muhandis / the Engineer”).  The charge that these two were planning attacks on American soldiers and officials could equally well be leveled at U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, White House officials, and U.S. military commanders at all echelons.  At what time have such officials on both the Iranian and American sides not been planning such attacks?  No concrete evidence has been put forward to justify preemptive defense againt an imminent attack on the United States.

The assassinations seem intended to appease neoconservative critics of President Trump as vacillating and weak in his response to Iranian ripostes to his policy of maximum pressure on Iran.  They provide a welcome distraction from the pending impeachment proceedings and appeal to the bloodthirsty instincts of the president's most ardent supporters.  They prepare the way for Mike Pompeo to offset his lack of diplomatic accomplishments with a demonstration of his ruthlessness to the “conservative” voters of Kansas, where he intends to run for the Senate.  In the new constitutional order in the United States, in which the separation of powers has been replaced by the separation of parties, the attack was politically expedient despite its blatant violation of the clear language of the U.S. Constitution.  The attack thus represents an extrajudicial execution that marks a further departure from constitutional government and the rule of law in the United States.

In foreign policy terms, this attack makes no sense at all.  It is not a deterrent to Iran so much as a provocation.  It pushes Iraq further into the arms of Iran and invites the humiliating expulsion of U.S. forces from Iraq.  It makes every American in Iraq a target for murder or hostage taking.  It demonstrates to the world the overt amorality of U.S. policy and the indifference of the United States to the constraints of international law and comity, especially when the object of American hostility is Muslim.  It is a strategy-free move, equivalent to beginning a game of chess with only an opening move in mind.  It is thus a reminder to the word of the witless hubris and violence with which the United States now conducts its international relations.

Americans, once the most prominent proponents of international law as the regulator of relations between nations, have now fully validated the law of the jungle.  We are now likely to experience it.

Here is a French language video that gives the President the benefit of the doubt.

“The assassination of Soleimani is an act of war. Now, Donald Trump would never have taken the chance to start the 3rd World War by ordering the assassination of the Iranian General. He would never have opened a Pandora's box, never not knowing how Iran was going to react, in the middle of an electoral period. Behind the scenes of history in these capsules. “

UPDATE 5: Esper Turns on President, Blames President in NYT CYA Article

Robert Steele: 4th Letter to White House — Esper, Pompeo, Haspel Blame President, After They Set Him Up!


Mr. President,

The NYT article “As Tensions With Iran Escalated, Trump Opted for Most Extreme Measure” with the sentence “By late Thursday, the president had gone for the extreme option. Top Pentagon officials were stunned.” is Mark Esper, Gina Haspel, and Mike Pompeo trying to pin it all on you when we know that your entire team lied to you.

The Zionists lied to you and fabricated the alleged threat. Both NSA and CIA and DIA should have and may have known that. Pompeo is a blustering fat boy out of his depth. Esper is a poser — the Class of 1986 has made it in an environment where no one is held accountable for mistakes. Haspel is just a placeholder for Brennan and his Deep State masters.

You were set up. You were lied to. It’s time you cleaned house and got strategic and intelligence support at the A level, no lies.

Had Mike Flynn, Doug Macgregor, Bill Binney, or I been in the room with you, any one of us would have told you that the Zionists pioneered “talking rocks” to frame Qadafi for terrorist communications (like we faked Patton’s 3rd Army) and NSA, which is totally penetrated by Zionists, lets them get away with this.

I respectfully urge you to listen to Tucker Carlson and Doug Macgregor and me. Invite all of us in for a conversation. You can still fix this but you need to fire Esper, Pompeo, and Haspel and make several deals fast. Your intelligence community is not only ignorant, it is treasonous. They should have told you the General was an official guest of the government of Iraq there for the funeral, and they should have also known that the Supreme Leader would never allow a repeat of Tehran Embassy take-over. The dispersal of the crowds was your truth-teller.

A number of us would like to help you. Accept our offer, please.

I am posting this letter and adding it to my master post,

Semper Fidelis,
Robert David Steele

UPDATE 6: Tehran Times Special, Saudi Arabia Complicit; Dick Cheney COG Role? Are We Being Played?

ROBERT STEELE: There are tiny signs emerging that we are all being played, and Wrestlemania propaganda, a Trump speciality, has come to the Middle East and the USA.  There is a possibility — at least 30% if not better — that President Trump has “made the deal” with Iran and is playing Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey, in that order. I for one will never under-estimate the cleverness of the President.  One IC senior has told me that this may have been a classic entrapment by the President, sucking in all the traitors to destroy once and for both the war on Iran protagonists and the resistance to leaving the Middle East totally — close every base, bring home every single member of the US military and fire all contractors. The weak signals include multiple reports of General Qasem Soleimani years ago, but all those reports have been scrubbed from the media by (I speculate) the Zionist controllers of the media along with their CIA partners. From Robert Maxwell to Bin Laden to Epstein to Abu Mohammad Salama, the propensity to fake people's death for political effect is now well established.

The “red flag” shown below is CLASSIC over-kill, and a tiny hint to me, at least, that The Donald and The Supreme Leader have a Wrestlemania narrative developing that will not end well for Israel or Saudi Arabia.

I  expect Turkey to do well but be blocked from its ambitions to expand. Jordan is at risk for now, but I anticipate the end of Israel, the restoration of Palestine, and the survival of Jordan. I would like to see the resurrection of Lebanon. From a strategic point of view, what I am seeing is a move so outrageous that it enables what some have thought impossible: the restoration of Palestine and the complete withdrawal of US troops from Iraq. Trump's bluster about not leaving until the Iraqis pay us for invading and occupying them is just the opening act in a negotiation that should see us giving Iraq and other countries in the Middle East a trillion dollars over the next five years.  This is my prediction.  Here is my review of Matt  Taibbi's primer on Wrestlemania Propaganda as mastered by The Donald and perhaps, with amusement, also being embraced by The Supreme Leader and a very much alive General playing the ultimate PSYOP.

Review: Hate Inc. Why Today’s Media Makes Us Despise One Another by Matt Taibbi

Regardless of truth or fiction of the assassination, the President should fire Esper, Pompeo, and Haspel (for cause or for show, no difference, they need to be gone), and order the closure of all US military bases in the Middle East to be completed by 1 March 2020.  St.

Time to dismiss the West Point mafia (class of 1986, including Urban). Iran's threat to attack Donald Trump's gold courses is hysterically funny and suggests that the Iranians understand Trump and are waiting to make the deal.  The deal will include US leaving Iraq, firing Esper and Pompeo (and hopefully Haspel), a discrete reduction of sanctions, and very very discretely, a commitment to end Israel and restore Palesine in 2022.  Solemeini died that Palestine might live.

Trump’s only hope of surviving the “set up” is to destroy Pompeo and Esper, to leave them in history’s scrap heap with Benedict Arnold and George W. Bush.

UPDATE 10: Fake Retaliation — No War — Are We Being Played?

ROBERT STEELE:  No war.  Good. But I have the strong feeling we are being played.One source says the latest attack was faked, and media given replays of rockets fired at Gaza. Time will tell.  For now I trust the President and the plan.

Below, flagged previously by Contributing Editor Berto Jongman in Europe, is the single best discussion I have seen of our President

Sylvain LaForest, “About Trump,” Oriental Review, 15 November 2019

The more I look at all the indicators, the more I believe that our President is a genius, he has back channels with Iran that few know about, and this is all an elaborate Wrestlemania flip of the media and its Deep State masters that will in the end create a prosperous world at peace. Although I do worry sometimes, my own work is generally consistent with this interpretation of our President and his good intentions.

UPDATE 11: US To Leave Middle East Less Gulf

Consortium News (Pepe Escobar): Trump to De-Escalate: Intel Source

“It is most unlikely Trump will escalate at this point, and this could provide him with the opportunity to leave the Middle East except for the Gulf States. Trump wants to get out,” a U.S. intelligence source says.

UPDATE 12: Pompeo's Tonkin Gulf — Pompeo Judas — Is Israel Assassinating Donald Trump with Pompeo as Its Triggerman?

ROBERT STEELE: It is now clear — as I surmised from day one — that President Donald Trump was set up — lied to — manipulated — by a combination of Zionist zealot assholes and pussy seniors unwilling to call Pompeo out for being the lying Christian Zionist asshole that he is. Mark Esper, his West Point classmate, clearly put loyalty to Pompeo above loyalty to the President or the country. Now Iraq has asked us to leave and Pompeo, eager to twist the stake in the President's heart on behalf of his Zionist masters, has said we have a “right” to stay. The time is long past due for firing Pompeo, Esper, and Haspel — as I originally recommended — and ordering the immediate departure of all US troops from Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Syira, and Yemen as well as other African and Central Asian and Eastern European countries. The President's instincts have always been on target.  I pray he is ready now to clean house and get on with winning the mother of all landslides.

Washington Monthly: Pompeo Aligns U.S. Foreign Policy With Christian Zionists

ADDENDUM: Iran has admitted to shooting down the Ukrainian commercial airliner taking off from Tehran airport. We are not at all sure this is a true confession. It is possible that Israel shot the airliner down and Iran is taking the blame to de-escalate. Normally such an airline would be shot out of the sky once it is completely out of sight of the capital city but before it reaches full cruising altitude.  President Trump is known to be using back channels to avoid escalation, the only question that remains is this: will he fire Pompeo, Esper, and Haspel, pull out of the Middle East, and carry on against the Deep State, or will he continue to play the Zionist tool (rhymes with fool)?

UPDATE 14: Ukrainian Aircraft a UK-US-IL Covert Operation to Undermine Iranian Regime

Robert Steele: Ukrainian Aircraft Shot Down by MI-6, CIA, Mossad Collaborative Effort to Undermine Iranian Regime

It is my judgment, augmented by conversations with others, that the Ukrainian aircraft, which was TAKING OFF and CLIMBING at SLOW SPEED and AWAY from the airport, was BOMBED or shot down by remote hijacking of an Iranian surface to air missile as part of a regime change effort.  There is NO WAY that an alert crew would confuse the above signature with an INCOMING, DESCENDING, HIGH SPEED cruise missile.

This was a set up.  BOTH President Trump AND the Supreme Leader are being schlonged by an out of control secret intelligence mafia in a state of treason.
