Wednesday's date was July 15, 2020. I don't know if there is any connection but on Sunday July 12, 2020, a fire broke out at the Naval Base in San Diego, California aboard an amphibious assault ship docked pier-side. It's still burning. Other ships near the blaze were towed out.

Amphibious Assault Ship USS Bonhomme Richard Is On Fire At Naval Base San Diego (Updated)
July 12, 2020 - Details remain limited, but the Wasp class amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD-6) is burning pier-side at Naval Base San Diego. Aerial footage shows thick smoke billowing from the ship's hangar deck as firefighting crews have moved in to try to halt the blaze. Reports state that an unknown number of sailors have been hurt as a result of the fire.

'Yeah I was wondering too.'

In the meantime:

Iranian air defense systems were on high alert after at least four reconnaissance planes appeared near the Iranian territory.

So crazy, can these two incidents possibly be a cosmically related “event”? I say that because San Diego and Bushehr are almost on the same parallel. Also didn't the fires started at around the same time?

Then again the cryptic remarks of IRGC also makes me think that it could be Iranian sabotage, kinda tit for tat with the Americans.

Covis crushing the Drug cartels activtys move operations to the middle east.

Police in Italy found a record-breaking 15 tons of amphetamines worth $1.12 billion at an Italian port Wednesday they say were produced by terror group ISIS and were likely bound for distribution across Europe by organized crime groups.

According to investigators, 84 million pills of the drug Captagon inside industrial goods were found on board three container ships at Salerno’s port Wednesday.

Authorities told CNN they stopped and searched the ships after intercepting calls by a local organized crime group that expected the shipment.

Investigators said it is the largest drug bust in world history, in both physical size and street cost of the haul.

Police believe the drugs were meant for European distribution by multiple organized crime groups, and said the seized load was large enough to satisfy the entire continent’s appetite for the drug.

Captagon is a brand name for fenethylline hydrochloride, a stimulant originally developed to treat narcolepsy and depression that is popular in the Middle East, according to Reuters, that the Islamic State produces and sells to finance itself.

Captagon is known to give people who take it bursts of energy and has reportedly been taken by ISIS fighters themselves to "inhibit fear and pain,” according to a statement from investigators, coming to be known as the “Jihad drug.”


KEY BACKGROUND

Just two weeks ago, police found a million Captagon capsules and more than 6,000 pounds of hashish being smuggled through the same port in Salerno. Authorities in Italy said they believe Covid-19 lockdowns throughout Europe have thrown a wrench into illegal drug production and distribution across the continent. Traffickers may have been forced to import drugs from Syria instead, they said, which is now the world’s top producer of amphetamines.

Iran's military has just held a bunch of war games in the Strait of Hormuz featuring a mock-up of US aircraft carrier, which of course would be the prime target if the US ever attacked Iran—its fleet in the Persian Gulf would face serious problems.

I think Iran is sending a message that if Bibi Netanyahu and Donald Trump think that they need to start a big Middle East war to try to keep them out of prison and keep them in power, well, they need to think again, because that war might not go the way that they would hope that it would.

I think Iran is demonstrating that it is entirely capable of actually winning this kind of war, and that's not really sort of an empty boast or display from the Iranian side. Even the American side has had to admit over the past decade and a half, that it very likely would lose a war with Iran, and that's the reason the US has not attacked Iran. Continued:

FOX News: Iran strikes us military bases in Qatar and the UAE with missiles
2020-07-29

Iran has launched a ballistic missile attack on us military bases in Qatar and the UAE.

The American TV channel "FOX News", referring to a report in the Pentagon, reported that at least three ballistic missiles launched from the territory of Iran struck the area where the us military bases are located on the territory of Qatar and the UAE. At the time of the missile strike on the area where the us military bases are located, us army soldiers were in protective bunkers – a similar order was given to all us units 2.5 hours before the actual strike.

"Us military personnel at al-Udeid air base in Qatar and al-Dafra air base in the United Arab Emirates, located on the opposite side of the Persian Gulf from Iran, were put on high alert in response to three Iranian missiles fired during the exercise. These missiles, possibly ballistic, fell into the water, but, according to "Fox News"," struck critically close so as not to cause concern", "the Drive"reports.

What it means to strike in relative proximity to us military facilities is unknown, but it seems that this is nothing more than an exaggeration of the real scale of the Iranian exercises, since the missiles did not even enter the airspace of these States, which Iran did not seek.

Zionist mafia inches closer with self destruction.

On September 3, an explosion of an improvised explosive device (IED) targeted a convoy with equipment of the US-led coalition in the southern Iraqi province of Dhi Qar.

Iraqi troops that were escorting the convoy suffered no casualties. According to local sources, no significant damage was caused to the equipment. Following the incident, security forces detained 2 suspects near the explosion site. The investigation is ongoing.

However, it is no secret that the attack was likely conducted by one of multiple pro-Iranian Shiite groups that surfaced in the country following the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani and several prominent Iraqi commanders by a US strike in Baghdad in January.

Earlier, the Guardians of Blood (also known as Islamic Resistance in Iraq) released a video showing an IED attack on another convoy with US equipment. The attack took place near Camp Taji, north of Baghdad on August 23. During the last few months, such attacks became a regular occurrence across Iraq.

Pro-Iranian forces not only created a wide network of active cells that carry out these operations, but also successfully track movements of US forces and their equipment. According to local sources, a large number of Iraqi security personnel involved in the guarding of US forces and facilities in fact support the Iranian-backed campaign against the United States as well as the public demand of the full US troop withdrawal from Iraq

Despite loud statements and the handing over of several US bases to the Iraqi military, Washington is not reducing its military presence in the country. Rather it’s regrouping its forces and strengthening the security of the remaining facilities. Tensions are on the rise not only in Iraq.

On September 3, Israel’s ImageSat International released satellite images showcasing the impact of the recent Israeli strikes on Iranian-linked targets near the Syrian capital of Damascus, and in the province of Homs. The report claimed that the strike on the Damascus International Airport destroyed a headquarters and a warehouse used by Iranian forces. The same area was the target of an Israeli attack in February. The strike on the T4 airport in Homs damaged the main runway and an apron. As a result, the air base was temporary placed out of service.

A few days earlier, the Israeli Defense Forces claimed that they had hit approximately 100 Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip in August. This supposedly included 35 hits on Hamas weapons manufacturing sites, along with 30 underground sites, 20 observation posts and 10 sites linked to the group’s aerial capabilities such as drones. According to the Israeli side, these strikes were a response to rocket and other attacks from the Gaza Strip. Palestinian groups claim that they just retaliate to permanent pressure and acts of aggression from the Israeli side.

Taking into account the war in Yemen, a large part of the Middle East has been turned into a battleground of the conflict between the Israeli-US bloc and the Iranian-led Axis of Resistance.

UN inspectors gain access to one of two sites where undeclared nuclear activity may have taken place in the early 2000s; second site to be inspected later this month
4 September 2020, 6:42 pm 4 minutes
VIENNA, Austria — The UN’s nuclear watchdog said Friday that Iran’s stockpile of enriched uranium now stands at more than ten times the limit set down in the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

The limit was set at 300 kilograms (661 pounds) of enriched uranium in a particular compound form, which is the equivalent of 202.8 kilograms (447 pounds) of uranium.

Measured against the latter figure, Iran’s stockpile now stands at over 2,105 kg (2.32 tons,) up from 1,571.6 kilograms (1.73 tons) last reported on May 20, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reported Friday in a confidential document distributed to member countries.

Iran signed the nuclear deal in 2015 with the United States, Germany, France, Britain, China and Russia. Known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA.

The IAEA reported that Iran has also been continuing to enrich uranium to a purity of up to 4.5%, higher than the 3.67% allowed under the JCPOA. It said Iran’s stockpiles of heavy water has decreased and is now back within the JCPOA limits.

Meanwhile, in a separate report, the IAEA said that Iran had granted its inspectors access to one of two sites where undeclared nuclear activity may have taken place in the early 2000s.

“Iran provided Agency inspectors access to the location to take environmental samples,” an IAEA report seen by AFP said.
“The samples will be analyzed by laboratories that are part of the agency’s network,” it added.

An inspection at the second site will take place “later in September 2020 on a date already agreed with Iran,” the report said.
Iran announced last week it would allow the IAEA access to the two sites, following a visit to Tehran by IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi.

Iran had denied the agency access earlier this year, prompting the IAEA’s board of governors to pass a resolution in June urging Iran to comply with its requests.

The nuclear deal promised Iran economic incentives in return for the curbs on its nuclear program. President Donald Trump pulled the US out of the deal unilaterally in 2018, saying it needed to be renegotiated. Iran has since slowly violated the restrictions to try and pressure the remaining nations to increase the incentives to offset new, economy-crippling US sanctions.
