This time line will likely get scrubbed because it no longer suits the narrative of Iran & Iraq fighting ISIS while ISIS was being financed and armed by other interested parties. The tide of ISIS turned when someone bombed hundreds of their stolen oil tanker trucks. Spin it any way you like.

TimelineEdit

June 2014Edit

In the week of 14 June, according to The Guardian, Iran's Quds Force commander Qassem Suleimani was in Baghdad to organize an Iraqi counterattack against ISIL.[2] Press agency Reuters believes that since mid-June, Iran has members of its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) fighting on the ground in Iraq against ISIL, though it does not give an estimate of their numbers.[33]

According to Iranian social media, ISIL troops on 19 June attacked two Iranian border guards near Iran's border city of Qasre Shirin, but this has not been confirmed by authoritative sources.[34]

American war correspondent David Axe on his website 'War is Boring' asserted that on 21 June 2014 "it appears Iran joined the air war" of Iraq and Syria against ISIL.[35]

By the end of June, according to American officials, Iran had established a control center at Al-Rasheed Air Base in Baghdad and was flying a small fleet of Ababil drones over Iraq, and an Iranian signals intelligence unit had been deployed at the airfield to intercept electronic communications between ISIL fighters and commanders.[36]

July 2014Edit

On 1 July, according to IISS, several Su-25 aircraft were sent by Iran to al-Rashid and, later, to al-Muthanna air base.[37] The aircraft were supported by bi-national Iranian/Iraqi ground crews who had been trained in Iran.[14] (During the 1991 Gulf War, seven Su-25s had been flown by the Iraqi air force to Iran as a temporary safe haven and Iran had kept them since; ironically, some of them may now have returned to Iraq.[37])

On 5 July, Quds Force pilot Shojaat Alamdari was killed in Samarra, probably working there as a forward air controller.[14]

August 2014Edit

See also: Siege of Amirli

Iraqi Kurdish President Barzani and Iranian foreign minister Zarif said, end of August 2014, that Iran had been the first country to provide weapons and ammunition (at unspecified date) to the Iraqi Kurdish forces (Peshmerga). Zarif said that Iran cooperated militarily with the Iraqi central government and the Kurds, but that it had "no military presence in Iraq".[1]

In contradiction to that Iranian denial, Business Insider, without naming its sources, contends that in early August, Iran's IRGC sent Quds Force personnel, attack aircraft and drones to Iraq, and that since early August Iran was operating its Su-25 aircraft (see July 2014) in combat against ISIL.[14]

But early August, Qasem Soleimani, chief of the Iranian Quds Force, was indeed in Erbil advising Kurdish forces, an Iranian official admitted early October 2014.[38]

On 21–22 August, according to Kurdish sources, hundreds of Iranian soldiers, allegedly from Iran's 81st Armored Division,[39] helped Peshmerga to take back Jalawla in Diyala Governorate from ISIL. Iran subsequently denied any military presence in Iraq.[40]

There were unconfirmed reports of clashes between ISIL forces and Revolutionary Guard Corps units near Urmia on 28 August.[41]

Between 31 August and 1 September, the Iranian-backed Iraqi Shia militias Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq and Kata'ib Hezbollah (see section Background) joined an Iraqi army and Kurdish Peshmerga assault to break the ISIL siege of Amerli in Saladin Governorate. The attack was supported by the U.S. Air Force at the request of the Iraqi army, according to a statement by the U.S. Central Command.[3][42]

September 2014Edit

By early September, according to Business Insider, Iranian Quds Force personnel were deployed to Samarra, Baghdad, Karbala, and the former U.S. military post known as Camp Speicher.[14]

In late September, Iranian general Ahmad Reza Pourdastan threatened to "attack deep into Iraqi territory" should ISIL forces approach the Iranian border.[43] Earlier in the month, the Iranian government announced it had arrested Afghan and Pakistani nationals attempting to "cross Iran" to join ISIL.[44]

There have been sporadic reports of ISIL troops in Iranian Kurdistan. These claims are unverified.[45]

October 2014Edit

Iranian general Qasem Soleimani, chief of the Iranian Quds Force, was reportedly present on the battlefield during Operation Ashura. Early October, Islamic Republic of Iran News Network (IRINN) published a picture of Soleimani, purportedly on some battlefield alongside Kurdish Peshmerga.[38] The Operation Ashura included Shi'ite paramilitary groups such as Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq, Kata'ib Hezbollah and the Badr brigades along with their leader Hadi Al-Amiri. Hezbollah was also present to provide technical advice and combat support for the allied offensive against the town of Jurf al-Sakhr.[46]

November 2014Edit

See also: Battle of Baiji (October–December 2014)

On 14 November, it was reported that the army had taken full control of Baiji, forcing ISIL forces to withdraw, and on 18 November, the anti-terrorism force Mosul Battalion entered the refinery for the first time since June. However, this could not be confirmed independently. If confirmed, it would be a major victory for Iraqi forces. State television said that they had entered the gates of the refinery.[47] Meanwhile, it was confirmed that Iraqi forces were in full control of Baiji. Iraqi state television said Baiji's recapture was a "Graveyard for ISIS".[48] Later, the US Department of State congratulated the Iraqi forces for retaking the country's largest oil refinery, confirming the Iraqi victory.[49]

At the end of November, according to Israeli website Haaretz, Al Jazeera broadcast video showing Iranian F-4 Phantom jet-fighters bombing ISIL targets in northeastern Iraq, though Al Jazeera in its report alleged they were "Iraqi jet-fighters".[50] US rear Admiral John Kirby affirmed on 3 December that he had "indications that [Iran] did indeed fly air strikes with F-4 Phantoms" targeting ISIL positions in the eastern Iraqi province of Diyala.[51]

December 2014Edit

Military situation in the Second Battle of Tikrit (March–April 2015) as in early-mid March 2015.

On 27 December, Iranian IRGC Brigadier General Hamid Taqavi was killed in Samarra, Iraq, reportedly by an ISIL sniper.[52] He is the highest ranking Iranian military official to die in Iraq since Iran's military intervention began[53],other than Qasem Soleimani.

March–April 2015

EditMain article: Second Battle of Tikrit (March–April 2015) § Iran's role

On 2 March, Qasem Soleimani, commander of the Iranian Quds Force, was directing Shia militia operations on the eastern flank during the surrounding of ISIL fighters, and was reportedly taking a leading role in the fighting of Iraqi forces and Shia militias against ISIL.[54][55]

Jim Phillips of the American The Heritage Foundation in March described Suleimani's role in this war as: "he's Iran's viceroy for Iraq".[56]

May 2015Edit

See also: Battle of Ramadi (2014–15)

American news website The Long War Journal states without revealing its sources that Iran has sent Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Basij members to fight ISIL in both Syria and Iraq.[57]

Jassem Nouri, a military commander of the IRGC, was killed on 28 May while fighting ISIL near Ramadi in Anbar province, according to Iranian sources.[57]

In late May, the American news website Vox characterized Qasem Soleimani as "leading Iraq's overall military strategy against ISIL".[58]

If Salami was simply a member of the regime and working together with the rest of the leadership to craft plans and execute policy then the new replacement will be doing the exact thing. Therefore killing Salami will have been shown to have no effect. Time will prove what is correct. Now, if time proves the new replacement does not follow the same policies and same agenda then that would indicate powerful people in Iran benefitted from Salamis death. In fact may have helped coordinate it. And if that new policy is more peaceful, less retaliatory then that would once again show the MSM on the wrong side of the boat.

And as for an airliner accidentally being shot down, really? An AA battery located in close proximity to the international airport, linked together with an entire network of defense units with radar tracking, call signs, coordination via a larger group made a mistake and did not figure out the plane was lifting off from that airport. Or do we have to beleive the "accident" occurred because the guy on duty dropped his pita on that red button which fires a missle and everything else is beyond control from that point on. Or, better yet, the guy was really nervous because of TDS and, even though planes are routinely flying from the public airport, this one lifting off triggered a fear that Trump ordered bombs dropped from an airliner baggage loading door so the missle guy figured he needed to shoot first. And once again, once the missle was launched it was beyond everyone's control.

At times like these I am thrilled we have Trudeau to be the voice of logic for the Canadian nation and the MSM to be the opposition to keep the government in check.

But first we need a group of experts to explain why governments settle agreements with pallet loads of cash. Let me guess, Obama just figured it was a nice gesture because a couple people in Iran wanted access to the funds without the hassle of requesting it through its own channels, then getting a wire transfer and then going to a bank to get 1s and 0s converted to bills, even though even buying a cheeseburger these days is easier with 1s and 0s rather than bills. But no matter, the deal that included pallets of cash was all above board and people like NF clearly agree so. And so Trump opposing it is clearly wrong - because pallets of cash is accepted by everyone as the normal way of transferring large sums of wealth across the planet. The humour in all this is watching who actually believes these things.

For some other reading, an article on the Atlantic Council and how it just happens to drive policy around the world. Because our governments don't do much for creating their own policies but rather wait for someone to tell the government what policy should be and then act accordingly.


And some reading on corruption in Romania, which may be relevant as you probably heard that the same Bidens that did nothing wrong in Ukraine have also been mentioned as being involved in Romania. Bidens aren't mentioned but if we want to keep adding to our list of countries with massive corruption being prosecuted in the last few years at the highest levels then we can add another.

And suppose Trump does not tell continuous lies like the fake media claims. Suppose Trump makes statements of fact. Suppose if Trumps says a few days ago Iran will never have nukes, that this just became a point of fact. Key figure taken out in Iran, Iran's retaliation completely ineffective, an accidental airliner shoot down, large earthquakes in Iran - all events over a 48 hour period.

Gotta admit I didn't expect Iran to own up to it as fast as they did. Guess now we know why they was bulldozing the wreckage scene already yesterday, nothing to investigate when you know exactly what was done....

Saw some pictures on a new site, gotta admit, one of a kids stuffed unicorn or horse runs thru my mind everytime I think of this, no matter who was on that plane, they didn't deserve what Iran did to them.

Yup. It appears as though Mr. Trump has now stoped almost three years of unauthorized leaks dripping from the Whitehouse, and conducted a mass IQ test for the media and Democrat geniuses all in one fell swoop.

Too funny, as if every hornets nest he whacks or holds a torch under is all on public record, or shared with Congress before or after the fact.

Here’s a hint on how to do better on the tests in the future NF123.....as if Trump isn’t supposed to know what the whole world knows in the moment. For cripes sake.

“casts Trump as fully aware of Giuliani’s actions in Ukraine — at a moment when Giuliani was publicly calling for “

Once again, pallet loads of cash used to settle obligations between countries and flown half away around the world rather than an electronic transfer. Hmmmm, which ones seems reasonable. I notice that propaganda piece doesn't get into the idea of flying cash in cargo planes. How so? Any dive into that detail might lead to the reader to start thinking for themself?

Still no WW3. Though Iran is still killing protestors and journalists. It only took the death of 20 or so people to destroy Libya for the good of the population so when will the UN destroy Iran since the death toll is around 1500 for protestors according to some reports. Let's just say 20 at a time is a quiet protest. We will see how things play out. Iran may just become another vassal state of the empire or it may become free of a corrupt ruling class that has done nothing to advance the well being of its people in 40 years. Time will tell.

A short article on what Q is.

Which may fit into the possibility that Q is legitimate if in fact bankers run the world. I beleive this 45 minute video was posted previously, if not here it is again because it would be relevant background should the twitter link I post below mean anything.

Twitter link to 1 minute Trump ad with some speculation on the symbolism in the ad.

Good point RC, usury is supposed to be against Islamic belief. So how does an Islamic country demand interest payments? Oh well, deal with that after figuring out pallets of cash is the best method of payment.

Some miscellaneous things from the past few days.
Brian Cates has a summary of events in recent days worth reading to get caught up quickly.

And we have the Virginia gun rights thing that has a lot of people getting on edge if you beleive in things like false flags or how an event can be either outright manufactured or else hijacked with a few intstigators to create something that spins out of control thus requiring some type of authoritarian control to respond.

I think Donald arranged his own impeachment. Lot of people looking stupid, and the circus hasn't hardly started. Wait till the obese people kind starts to sing
