BRINK OF WAR: US Apache Helicopters Circle Baghdad, Firing Warning Flares As Marines Now In Iraq Securing US Embassy

The situation in the Middle East is rapidly deteriorating. Risk of military conflict is rising, and it’s not just Iran, Iraq, and Syria but also Russia & Turkey…

UPDATE 1

First, from Marine Corps Times:

A detachment of 100 Marines are reinforcing the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq, after Iraq protesters supportive of an Iran-backed Shiite militia attempted to storm the compound, U.S. Central Command said Tuesday.

All U.S. personnel are secure and there are no plans to evacuate the embassy, the State Department told Military Times in a Tuesday email.

The State Department added that the U.S. ambassador for Iraq, Matt Tueller, is returning to the embassy from previously scheduled personnel travel.

The Marines were requested by the U.S. State Department and their deployment was approved by Iraqi Security Forces, Central Command spokesman Mike Lawhorn told Military Times in an email Tuesday. Two Apache attack helicopters are providing over watch.

It is unclear right now where the Marines came from, but the helicopters came from Taji, Iraq, Lawhorn said.

The situation in the Middle East continues to deteriorate, and it’s now after 10:00 p.m. Baghdad time (at 2:00 p.m. EST).

Why is that important?

Because bad things happen at night, in the cover of darkness, and nearly the entire world is otherwise distracted with ringing in the new year tonight.

(Silver Doctors Editors) It sure looks like war is breaking-out in the Middle East.

Here’s a look at the morning homepage at Fox News

The situation is rapidly deteriorating.

Here’s CNN’s homepage on Tuesday morning:

The MSM is beating the war drums hard today.

Notice the common theme: Iran, Iran, Iran.

Regardless, the situation is getting quite messy, and we’re talking about Iran, Iraq, Syria, and, recall from last week, we’re also talking about Turkey and Russia.

Are we on the brink of full scale war in the Middle East?

Some random Tweets about the latest “protests” that may or may not be of interest, and may or may not be accurate:

Finally, Trump’s Tweet from this morning:

PRIMER:

We’ve been warning about this since last Friday morning, including saying there could be military strikes against Syria, which there were, and there were also strikes in Iraq, which we were not suspecting at the time.

Here’s when we were sounding the alarm for the weekend strikes, started at the correct timestamp, for your convenience:

Here’s what we wrote on Friday afternoon:

I want to end this week’s wrap with something that has been bothering me.

Yesterday, President Trump Tweeted this:

That Tweet got little attention in the mainstream media, and it also got very little attention in the “alternative” media, but the significance of that Tweet cannot be understated.

Why not?

Well, remember that it was in April of 2018 when President Trump launched a missile strike against Syria:

Notice, from right there on WhiteHouse.gov, the very same words of “innocent civilians”, but with President Trump’s Tweet from yesterday, December 26th, 2019, the President wasn’t talking about dozens, for he was talking about thousands.

Thousands!

Oh my!

OK, “Hey Half Dollar, you don’t get it man, President Donald J. Trump, the best President ever, not just in the history of the United States, but in the history of the entire world, and also in the history of worlds yet to be discovered, only Tweeted that yesterday to appease the warmongering Deep State!”.

Oh.

I see.

4-D chess, huh?

Just like launching all of those missiles in the Spring of 2018 was also 4-D chess to appease the Deep State?

Well, either it’s 4-D chess, or President Trump is A Deep State Globalist in Patriot’s Clothing, and he just signaled the commencement of a major geo-political event in the Middle East, or, at the very least, some sort of contingency plan for one.

Remember: Deep Sate and Deep State Globalists like to announce what they’re going to do ahead of time, and they like to switch it up a bit with various way of making their plans known, and if something is about to go down in the Middle East, yesterday’s signaling was especially interesting because it first began with typos:

 

That Trump Tweet was deleted, and about an hour later, we saw the Trump Tweet with the spelling and typos corrected.

Interestingly, the timing is near perfect, with everybody celebrating and toasting away the decade of (artificial) gains!

What is the bottom line as we find ourselves here on this beautiful last Friday of the last year of the decade?

And finally, we discussed the weekend developments on yesterday’s (December 30th) Silver Doctors Live (the first topic of discussion we started the show with):
