https://theduran.com/iran-and-why-it-would-be-insane-for-america-to-go-to-war-there/:Is Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard the only sane voice in both Houses of the US Congress?

DJ-Even the present moves by the US, trade war with China, proxy war with Iran, tensions with Russia, is moving Europe away from the US.

How does Trump think to Make America Great Again when even European allies move away from the US ?

Israel and Saudi Arabia/Gulf States is not a basis for US "world domination". Both also work with Russia and China-are in a balancing act using the US against Iran for their own political agenda.

The US is in a "middle-east tunnel vision" wich is damaging most of all the US.

When you look at the outcome of wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya it is Russia, China, Iran that are getting more global influence at the cost of the US. (And over a million people being killed since 2001, trillions of US$ wich are badly needed elsewere.)

For now most of the world do not know who is running the US. Trump or Bolton/Pompeo ? Words and actions do not match. Russia and China have a clear message, offer energy and trade. Their words match their actions.

Trust is a basis for international trade. It is the US that shows it can not be trusted. That will have a price.

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-18/americas-hostile-coexistence-china

DJ-The US made Iran-crisis can not be seperated from the (growing) US-China crisis. When you look at how the Saudi's are dealing with the war in Yemen-they are unable to win (even with US/UK/others help) the Saudi's could escalate that war by attacking Iran.

Also Israel is already (with US/NATO help) attacking Iran in Syria. The US getting out of the Iran-deal could give Israel an excuse to attack targets in Iran.

(DJ-There may already be "special forces" in Iran working with Kurdish, Baluchi and other seperatist groups to destabilize the Iran regime. I would not be surprised when Iran-already working with Turkey against Kurds in Iraq and Syria-invites "foreign powers"for "protection". India has interests in Iranian-Baluchistan, China is a main investor in Iranian oil. Russia has plans to improve connection with the Indian Ocean via Iran.

A possible scenario is the "Syria-scenario" with "the west" supporting "moderate rebels" (like KSA/Gulf States supporting IS) and a "civil war".
The US "protecting" the Iranians for usage of WMD/chemical weapons by the "bad regime".

In return Russia-Iran-China could go for the "spread choas strategy" in the US. Why not go for independence of California, Texas, Alaska ? Some US groups claim "Putin" made Trump win the elections. So when "Putin" is behind "all evil" already-why not make such claims reality ? If the US wants to destroy Russia and China with groups like IS etc. the US may expect a reaction.)

DJ-Hal Turner (behind paywall): Extremely High military Activity over Persian Gulf Saterday-updated 9.06 AM (EST-DJ) threat danger is reported quote "off the scale" UPDATE 10.51 AM FAA issues global pilot warning "military action" in Persian Gulf....https://www.rt.com/news/459679-us-iran-miscalculation-warning/

https://www.facebook.com/pepe.escobar.77377:
The message:

“Bolton, Abrams and Pompeo should be fired at once. We do not have one ally in the entire world on our side who will help in this war. And if Iran closes the Strait of Hormuz, our entire financial system implodes. This is the craziest and stupidest thing I have ever seen in my life. Donald should clean house and stop using sanctions in place of war or he may have the war that will destroy his presidency. This is not Afghanistan and Iraq. Just drop the sanctions against Iran and Venezuela and let it be.

Just as I warned about Venezuela happened. If we had done nothing they would have fallen. Now, it is Yankee go home and the people are rallied against the US. And we have succeeded in destroying all the moderates in Iran. You can't make such stupidity up like this.”

https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2019/05/17/the-dead-dont-die-they-march-to-war:
Hysteria reigns supreme. As in the new Jim Jarmusch movie, The Dead Don’t Die, The Return of the Living Neocon Dead, in a trashy rerun of the lead-up to Shock and Awe in 2003, keeps orchestrating the zombie march.

Yet no one in war-cheerleading US corporate media talks about the quadrillion derivative crisis that will gut the global economy if there’s an attack on Iran (I addressed it here.) Shutting down the Strait of Hormuz will bring down the 2.5 quadrillion world derivative market, largely wiping out the economies of all Western nations.

DJ-Slowly I'm beginning to believe "there is a strong push for war" although who is behind that push ? The "B-team" (with Israel and KSA trying to move away when things get out of control ?)

https://www.sott.net/article/413277-US-Foreign-Policy-Has-Become-One-Giant-Relentless-Program-of-Psy-Ops:
To say the US conducts "foreign policy" is patently a misnomer. US policy is nothing short of low-intensity warfare against the whole planet. Its "foreign policy" is nothing more than a continuous program of psychological operations.
(DJ-It is unclear who is in control of the US army-the President or Bolton/Pompeo ????)

And than there is the South China Sea: https://www.rt.com/op-ed/459608-south-china-sea-military-iran/

DJ-Reality is that there is a war between Iran and US-Saudi Arabia and Israel (USI). That war is fought in Yemen, Syria, Iraq (etc-one could claim that in Afghanistan IS is backed by USI, Taliban by ISI (Pakistan secret service). Iran is working with Russia, China, India-the last two have major interests in Iran oil and work on bases in (the Iran part of) Baluchistan-not far from the Pakistan border.

Israel is today hosting the finals of the Eurovision songcontest. Among the participants; Turkey, Russia, Australia, UK, France, etc. Last night https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/damascus-under-air-attack-air-defense-missiles-launching-sonic-booms-everywhere Israel attacked Iranian targets in Syria. (https://southfront.org/breaking-syrian-air-defense-intercept-aerial-targets-over-damascus-videos/ Syria claims Israel was only testing Syrian air defense. https://www.debka.com/mivzak/syrian-sources-we-shot-down-objects-coming-from-israel/)

The Eurovision song festival could be an oppertunity for a major false flag event. https://eurovision.tv/story/186-million-viewers-2018-eurovision-song-contest

Plans for over 200.000 US military in Saudi Arabia/Gulf States https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/saudi-led-gulf-states-approve-deployment-of-us-troops-in-the-gulf-region indicate the US is preparing for "major conflict".

Israel is giving China access to (buy) Ashdod-harbour, Saudi Arabia wants to by Russian S300/S400 airdefense missiles, Russian Railways building infrastructure. Both countries do want to be part of the New Silk Road-China trade initiative.

The idea of the US being the "only global superpower" is foolish. (Eur)Asia is the new superpower with at the center Russia and China, the EU and India (Pakistan, Turkey, Iran etc) working close with Eur-Asia integration.

The US can make changes by diplomacy-more war will push Eur-Asia-integration. https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201905181075107314-zaris-usa-doesnt-know-what-think/ The US seems to be split-Trump would like to move US forces out of the Middle East, Bolton wants war with Iran (a.o.)

https://sputniknews.com/world/201905181075104040-trade-talks-usa-china-stalled/ The trade war between the US and China is getting worse. (China and India are the world largest energy buyers-buying oil and gas from Russia, Iran, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia/Gulf States often not in US$. The US is the largest oil producer, with Russia and Saudi Arabia being competitors, the global conflict is on who can dominate the global energy market.)https://www.moonofalabama.org/2019/05/propaganda-intensifies-the-trade-war-with-china.html

DJ-A possible false flag could make the middle east explode. (Even when no "major party" wants it to explode. DJ-I guess Iran does not want war. The US, Israel, KSA know that a war will be impossible to control and bring "extreme damage". Russia/China may try to contain a "incident"-try to avoid an explosion").

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-17/buchanan-who-wants-war-iran

(DJ-There have been alarming reports in the past about "invasions" (US-into Nicaragua, Turkey-Saudi Arabia into Syria via Iraq etc.) Those reports turned out not to become reality. I hope the present situation is similar. A "bad scenario" could be Israel/Saudi Arabia trying to push the US into a war with Iran.)

DJ-The Us-Saudi-Israel war propaganda fails.
https://theduran.com/who-really-gains-from-the-gulf-ship-sabotage/,
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-16/uk-us-row-over-iran-intel-unleashes-storm-behind-scenes-infighting,
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-16/secret-satellite-photos-iranian-missiles-persian-gulf-spark-intelligence-debate

Even though western "press" fails to deal with fake-news the opposition to new wars is widespread. Most likely US military do realize that Israel and Saudi Arabia (and a few other Gulfstates) would welcome the US to fight a war with Iran without risking their own interests.

There still seems to be a group with financial interests in starting major conflicts. Most likely from intelligence to weaponindustry the "elite" may get the picture that a war with Iran could mean the end of NATO and cost the US what is left of "global power".

The US foreign policy-backed by other "western states" since the end of the Soviet Union was based on confrontation instead of cooperation with Russia and China. Going for confrontation with other countries, the Afghanistan (since 2001), Iraq (2003) Libya, Syria, Yemen wars (not to mention Yugoslavia in the 90's) made clear what the west had to offer; war for oil.

By putting sanctions on the EU, South Korea, the US worsened her international position. Becoming the largest oil producer put the US in competition with Saudi Arabia (and Russia).

China and India are the two major buyers of energy on the global market. When there was an alternative for the US-petro-$ (wich also was safe-US sanctions stopped working) Iran, Venezuela, Russia, even Saudi Arabia dropped the US$ as "petro-currency".

The US can create international tensions to raise the oil price-to make US (expensive to produce) oil more competative the damage the US has done to relations with many trade partners is that big the US is losing grip on the energy market. (They may sell US oil against India/China/Euro currencies).

At the moment the US is falling back to its last instrument-the military. Even that will not work.

DJ-The US will not be allowed to attack Iran-Russia and China will not accept that. That was what Pompeo was told in Sochi. Putin/Lavrov did have talks with China the day before Pompeo came to Sochi. (By the way-A US attack on Iran may also be the end of NATO from the EU point of view. Pompeo may have been told so by the EU.)

DJ-Hal Turner keeps on top of the US-Iran war plans. The comments are sometimes good....most likely even nobody-almost-in the US want another-even bigger-war in Asia.

https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/wow-spain-tucks-tail-and-runs-from-uss-abraham-lincoln-strike-group,

https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/covert-intelligence-pics-and-video-limpet-mines-attached-to-oil-tankers-blew-up-7-10-of-them (US made false flag or was it the Mossad/Israel ? https://www.debka.com/irans-special-marine-unit-sabotaged-tankers-fujairah-was-outside-us-saudi-uae-purview/ DJ-I guess Israel.)

https://www.moonofalabama.org/2019/05/syria-opcw-engineering-assessment-the-douma-chemical-weapon-incident-was-staged.html
Another false flag....See also https://southfront.org/even-opposition-admits-hayat-tahrir-al-sham-may-have-chemical-weapons/

https://southfront.org/venezuelan-opposition-asks-for-us-military-support-against-maduro-government-and-foreign-forces/
DJ-First you "create" an opposition than you support them-US made regimechange-model.

The Duran https://theduran.com/iran-nuclear-deal-falling-apart-as-conflict-in-persian-gulf-inches-closer-video/ describes what a US war against Iran would look like-in theory. https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201905141074981790-pentagon-mulls-iran-escalation-troops-plan/

DJ-Both Saudi Arabia and Israel would try to stay out of the real fight (or face destruction) and leave the real fight to the US.

Europe already is sticking-with Russia and China-to the Iran-deal the US is breaking. https://sputniknews.com/europe/201905131074968888-mogherini-eu-presser/ and https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/05/13/595876/Iran-European-Union-warning-military-escalation-United-States-Pompeo

DJ-The US putting sanctions on EU companies for doing bussines with Russia, Iran, China is pushing the EU for making a decission on who to do bussiness with. The credit-based, treaty-breaking US or the deal-sticking growing Asia-market.....mmmmmm what do you think ?

DJ-Even this US escalation is damaging the US extreme. The US-China trade conflict has everything to do with this US made "Iran-crisis". The US is spreading chaos from Venezuela to Iraq-enough is enough !

DJ-The US is preparing for war against Iran-ignoring the fact that Russia, China (a.o.) will not accept any major US action against Iran.

For countries like Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua, North Korea to even Turkey, Pakistan a US act of agression would be the final push towards the Russia-Iran-China coalition. India NEEDS oil from Iran, Venezuela....

Any major military action against Iran by the US would be the end of the US (and maybe of us all....).

https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/america-opens-its-arsenal-trainloads-of-tanks-in-desert-paint-heading-to-ports-iran (DJ-Hal Turner made a strange U-turn-being against US presence in the Middle East now supporting a war that will be far worse than the Iraq war.)

DJ-The reason US is increasing tensions with Iran has everything to do with China.

https://www.rt.com/news/459064-pakistan-gwadar-hotel-attack/
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10157148373776678&set=a.10150294029661678&type=3&theater
The Balochistan Liberation Army is a US-CIA proxy. Balochistan is SW Pakistan, SE Iran. The US "is not happy" with India (in Iran) and China investing in that region. So they bring in "the rebels"....

https://www.asiatimes.com/2019/05/article/us-china-the-hardcore-is-yet-to-come/ From Huawei to the South China Sea the US-China confrontation is spreading out-https://www.asiatimes.com/2019/04/article/china-locked-in-a-power-game-with-the-us/

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-11/america-ready-john-boltons-war-iran (and https://www.defconwarningsystem.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=101067#p101067 MAGA = Morons Are Governing America)

The "B-team" (Bibi Netanyahu, Bolton, mBs, ) think it would be a good idea to start a war with Iran. In 2003 Iraq at least had WMD-they did not have. Now it is "threats" from Iran. Hezbollah shooting a rocket into Israel would be-for the B-team-Iran attacking Israel.

The major risk is https://southfront.org/senior-israeli-officer-says-syrian-crews-completed-training-on-s-300-system-vows-to-destroy-it/ Israeli attacks in Syria can escalate even faster...

DJ-Iran is preparing for a possible (Israeli, US, joint, others (Saudi, UK) attack on their nuclear installations. The US sees that is Iran getting ready for starting military action against US/Saudi/Israeli targets...

Qatar has a major US air base. Turkey has to make a choice when a US-Iran war breaks out. The US has several military bases in Turkey-on the other hand Turkey now has better relations with Russia and Iran than with US and Israel)

https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/uss-abraham-lincoln-and-its-strike-group-successfully-transits-suez-canal DJ-military build up for any major land action against Iran may take several days/weeks. The US will not get that time-when war can not be avoided Iran-and its allies (????) will not wait.

DJ-With the US-China trade war getting out of hand. Iran and Venezuela main oil suppliers for China-the present US made crisis is a further escalation of the US-China trade war.

Iran;

https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/soft-coup-in-iran-rhouhani-sidelined-to-observer-while-irgc-takes-actual-command DJ-Or is there a sort of preparing for war-in Iran due to "US max pressure"? http://thesaker.is/shia-iraqi-scholar-warns-us-embassy-military-bases-our-silence-wont-last-forever-english-subs/
(DJ-Of course after US coups and failure to bring improvement-worse US puppets destroying reasonable healthcare, housing education-anyone would come to the conclusion they are better of without the US (in Iraq, Libya, Syria etc).

North Korea

https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/u-s-blind-sided-by-surprise-north-korea-missile-launch-major-provocation,
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-09/kim-says-latest-nkorea-launch-was-long-range-strike-drill-not-short-range

DJ-After the latest failed US coup-attempt in Venezuela it is getting clear the US is losing control. NK-Kim visited Vladivostok last week, has reasonable relations with both Russia and China. Those countries are in a position to "limit" wild plans from NK.
Russia and China have influence in Iran and Venezuela (Maduro is expected in Moscow soon.)

The US approach is not very constructive for US interests.https://www.debka.com/behind-apparent-military-escalation-us-and-iran-buy-2-3-months-grace-for-reassessment/

Israel/Netanyahu may think the US will support him when he decides to "go for" Iran interests in Lebanon, Syria or Gaza.

https://southfront.org/the-next-economic-crisis-and-the-looming-post-multipolar-system/ DJ There is always an economic bases for major wars. If the US wanted to start a major non-nuclear conflict with very large debts against creditors who will pay ?

DJ-Some good articles on why a US war against Iran is not very likely;

https://www.moonofalabama.org/2019/05/will-the-us-and-israel-wage-a-summer-war.html

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-08/israeli-newspaper-leaks-terms-trumps-deal-century-middle-east-peace-plan

DJ-Not mentioned in both articles is the New Silk Road in wich Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Turkey, Iran and Pakistan have a role-and Israel as well.
Netanyaho has good ties with both the US and Russia, India. For Israel any major war would bring massdestruction and damage relations Israel has with the Gulf States and Egypt.

https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/u-s-raises-tariffs-on-chinese-imports-from-10-percent-to-25-percent-on-200-billion-worth-of-chinese-goods(DJ-The pro-Trump view of HT)

DJ-Russia, China, Iran must be working very hard to further decrease the pressure US sanctions can do. They have an alternative for the SWIFT system for international financial transactions.
Russia now is buying fruits etc from Turkey instead of the EU to deal with EU sanctions.
Most likely the construction of pipelines to get oil from Iran overland to a.o. India (Iran-Pakistan-India IPI-line) etc will speed up. Also searoutes over the Caspian Sea to get Iranian oil to Russia will be improved.
Russia and China are growing in aviation, space, weapons/technology.

The long term outcome of the present US politics is that only a few countries might be interested in doing bussiness with the US. The US is shooting itself in the foot. The Middle East Peaceprocess will become a Russia/China project with the US on the sidelines.

In Syria https://southfront.org/syrian-war-report-may-8-2019-syrian-army-liberates-another-town-in-northwestern-hama/ limited operations against the "western backed (al quaeda linked) rebels" in NW Syria/Idlib. The Kurds still hope to get some sort of "Kurdistan"-both Idlib and Kurdish held area's need foreign support (via Turkey and Iraq). Without that support they end.

Some further remarks on the US-made "Iran crisis";

-https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2019/05/05/is-the-united-states-democracy/ Eric Zuesse answer is "no"-both major parties only represent an elite. (But that is a worldwide "democracy" problem-DJ)
Starting a major conflict-on top of all other conflicts the US is already involved in-would mean even less investments in decent education, healthcare, infrastructure in the US itself.

DJ-The choice for conflict instead of diplomacy "to rule the world" since 1989 did bring the US in a position that government spending is to much on the military/police-state and forgetting what made the US strong.

The US reputation worldwide is that of an agressor-not able to compromise. Double standards in every way possible-stimulating their own industry by defense orders while claiming a "free market ideology". And now even the US weapons can no longer compete with other producers...(both in price and quality)

https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201905081074798565-javad-zarif-jcpoa-cut-back-commitments/, https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/05/08/595397/Iran-change-commitment-nuclear-deal-JCPOA-Rouhani-letter

https://sputniknews.com/news/201905081074804853-iran-us-nuclear-deal/ and https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/05/07/595378/China-Iran-US-Threat-Attack-Nuclear-Deal-NonProliferation-Peace-Stability-Middle-East

Russian FM Lavrov will meet Iran FM Zarif in Moscow today. China and Russia are other Iran-deal partners-the US is the one breaking the deal (and the EU is claiming to stick to the deal but does not proof to do so).

https://www.moonofalabama.org/2019/05/how-the-us-is-pressing-iran-to-breach-the-nuclear-deal/comments/page/2/#comments

Pompeo is supposed to meet Lavrov and Putin may 14 in Sochi-the way Pompeo "dumped"Merkel gives an indication of the US getting out of control...

Is the US putting "maximum pressure"on Iran or is it preparing war ?

https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/emergency-action-messages-being-transmitted-to-us-military-after-iran-fails-to-stand-down-ballistic-missiles

https://www.defconwarningsystem.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=13247&start=10

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-07/pompeo-snubbed-germanys-merkel-make-surprise-iraq-cites-iran-escalation

DJ-When the UK joins the US in a war/strike with Iran (and the EU does not) the place of the UK in the EU gets even more complicated. (EU/UK strategy is to kick the can down the road-just like the Greece-Euro-crisis)

DJ-Iran can not be seen as isolated. A major attack on Iran is an attack on China, India, Turkey, Syria etc-oil/military partners. Russia can not accept this.

A major US strike most likely will further damage the US. (Depending on what kind of strike Iran may NOT respond-denying the US a conflict. Russia accepted-in Syria-some US proxy agression on Russian forces to steer in wich conflicts the will and will not fight. By now most likely there may be some sort of defense agreements between Iran and several partners. )

Again a major escalation by the US would be damaging for the US.

Things seem to be worsening right now-is the US getting ready for war with Iran ? https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-07/buchanan-bolton-steering-trump-war-iran

From Hal Turner https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/pompeo-suddenly-cancels-visit-with-germany-s-merkel-being-evacuated-to-undisclosed-location-due-to-serious-security-threat (Not(yet) behind a paywall-gives me (DJ) the impression that HT is taking this very serious):

Folks, all of this is utterly unprecedented. Something of enormous magnitude is happening and it is not going to be good when we find out about it.

The possibilities include:

1) Iran resumes nuclear enrichment (today)

2) Iran announces they are already a nuclear-armed power (this week)

3) The US, UK, and Israel refuse to accept any of this and launch a full scale attack on Iran, opening what will likely become WW3.

In the meantime, we have the Neo-Con whack-job John Bolton, whispering in the President's ear, and the rest of the cabal around the White House, insulating Trump from crucial facts . . . . the end result being the Deep State Agenda we all hoped to stop, is back in full control of our government.

If that's the case, then there is no peaceful solution to this Deep State problem, and the matter might have to be settled by the American people using other means.

and

Israel is ready to strike at the Iranian nuclear effort and we are privy to that. Meaning, if the US cannot back Israel down from attacking Iran, we better send all fighting capabilities to the region to protect US interests!   Iran and Israel are playing chess and the next move is checkmate. Some suggest Iran will detonate a nuke and announce their god given right to destroy Israel and tie up the middle east for ransom. In any event, Iran is also churning out uranium above all red lines, Israel will act.


Folks, this is it, all hell is going to be unleashed unless all efforts are successful.

DJ-Proberbly many armies getting ready for electronic warfare. Russia, Iran, China do not want or need war-the US wants to "control the world".

https://sputniknews.com/world/201905071074785319-iran-russia-turkey-trade-tool/

(DJ-As a reminder-we did see very serious situations in the last few years in the Middle East. So far it never got to a major-global-conflict. Lets hope it stays that way.)

https://www.moonofalabama.org/2019/05/how-the-us-is-pressing-iran-to-breach-the-nuclear-deal.html (and https://www.moonofalabama.org/2019/05/syria-russian-and-syrian-airforce-prepare-the-ground-for-an-attack-on-idlib-province.html)

https://www.debka.com/mivzak/qatar-pledges-s480m-in-aid-to-palestinians/ (DJ-Qatar-not Iran-is the main sponsor of Hamas in Gaza.)

https://www.rt.com/usa/458550-pompeo-cancels-meeting-merkel/

DJ-There are several "parties" involved in the escalating conflict between Israel/US and Iran.

-Iran and Turkey both condemn the Israeli agression against Gaza. The US has main bases in Turkey and Qatar-both of them are strongly against present Israeli politics. Without the use of those bases the US is limited to other countries. Most likely Jordan want to stay out of the conflicts as good as they can. So the US needs Israel, KSA/Gulf states in a major conflict with Iran.

-China, India (Turkey, Iraq, EU) are buying Iranian (and Venezuelan) oil.
When the US stops the flow-by sea-of that oil "these countries will not be very pleased".

-Europe is not wainting for another-even bigger-war in the Middle East bringing even more refugees.

-Both in Israel and Saudi Arabia there is strong opposition against a major conflict with Iran. Iran can destroy those countries in an all out war. There are better alternatives for both countries when they seek de-escalation. China has taken interests in a major Israeli port, Russian railways are working on a project in Saudi Arabia. Both countries have interests in getting better relations in the region.
Saudi Arabia is trying to get more influence in Sudan. Moving towards war with Iran will make that road more difficult. (Besides that the US oil-fracking making the US #1 in oil production, the US agression against (a.o.) Venezuela to get US control over that oil as well goes against Saudi interests.)

-A "surprise attack" (after a false flag event) can not be very effective due to strong Iran (air)defense. Most likely will backfire with Iran blocking Saudi/Gulf States oil export and even worse relations with Russia, China (and the EU).

DJ-Still the present US government is acting very stupid-could start more conflicts that would destroy the US. An attack against Iran will effect other US "enemies" Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua, North Korea. Those countries most likely will seek more protection from Russia and China.

Starting a war with Iran (or Venezuela, North Korea etc.) would be very stupid but fit in with (long standing) US foreign politics. The goal-US global domination-is only getting less realistic. The way the US is going is isolating the US even from its long term allies.
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ-Some indication US is preparing war against Iran (with most likely help from Israel, Saudi Arabia). Related to https://www.moonofalabama.org/2019/05/syria-russian-and-syrian-airforce-prepare-the-ground-for-an-attack-on-idlib-province.html
(Will Turkey back alquaeda forces in Idlib/Syria against Iran/Russia ? DJ-Not very likely-Turk stream and Russian/Chineese toerism is to important-so is trade with Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey-Iran military cooperation against (US/Israel backed-for the moment) Kurds.

Israel/US claims; https://www.debka.com/irans-badr-3-missile-in-maiden-show-against-israel-in-palestinian-rocket-offensive/, https://www.debka.com/mivzak/iran-on-point-of-partial-withdrawal-from-nuclear-accord/
