Iran is conducting two day large-scale drone exercises in Semnan province and in coastal waters which started Tuesday, involving hundreds of domestic built UAVs, and notably including suicide drones.

According to the Iranian Army chief overseeing the combat exercises, Admiral Mahmoud Mousavi, naval drones will fly from warships in the country’s southern waters, while suicide UAVs will additionally conduct long-range sorties.

Underscoring the nature of the exercise as a 'show of strength' at a moment US forces are in the region, including the USS Nimitz carrier strike group which days ago was called back to its Mideast area of operation after it was initially pulled out, Mousavi emphasized that "the Islamic Republic of Iran is one of the able and most powerful countries in the field of drone production."

State media described that it was the first exercise of its kind in terms of extent and the variety of drones deployed for the combat simulations.

“UAV combat operations including air interception and destruction of aerial targets using air-to-air missiles, destruction of ground targets using bombs and pinpoint missiles, as well as widespread use of suicide drones, are among the measures that will be carried out in the operational part of this exercise,” Adm. Mousavi described further.

The commander added, "The flight of naval drones from a vessel in southern waters of the country, long-range flight of pinpointing suicide drones to destroy vital targets in the depths of enemy’s soil will be one of the drone combat exercise plans."

Official footage showed what are commonly called Kamikaze drones crashing into targets to deliver munitions after previously circling above. These deadly advanced drone types were recently deployed by Azerbaijan during the recent Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

On Sunday the Pentagon reversed its decision to remove the USS Nimitz carrier from the Gulf region, reportedly after President Trump intervened to rescind prior orders that it would return to the US. Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller said in a statement: "Due to recent threats issued by Iranian leaders against President Trump and other government officials, I have ordered the USS Nimitz to halt its routine redeployment."

Washington is now likely closely monitoring Iran's drone activities in and near the Persian Gulf, and will likely view the two-day exercises as a potential provocation, particularly if any drones circle near US vessels.

Do these Iranians know when and where the State of the Union Address takes place. Should I send them a map and the schedule ?

The Iranians can hardly wait for January 20th so they can get sweetheart deals like in the Obama admin.

We need to deal with our federal thugs before worrying about the Iranians.

The massive numbers of folks that have awakened to the cancer of evil growing in modern America makes things different this time around. When I observe the Trump supporters and listen to what they have to say when interviewed it is apparent to me that these people regardless of age are very aware of the danger posed by the corruption that runs and is destroying our country. The vast numbers of tech savvy young people that are communicating with each other and are surprisingly wise and informed especially when you consider their basic education nor mainstream media gives them much in the way of useful and true information.

I'm becoming a fan of our next generation because many of them are fighting mad for the right reasons. Many of them are blogging, texting and operating internet websites purposed to relate and inform their peers of what the cancer is that may destroy their chances of living free. These youthful members of our society and those around the world need our experience, knowledge and financial support. And now, right now is the time for those of us that see the opportunity we have to do our part by acting upon our principles and values in a physical way. By leading through example to help our offspring throw off the chains we hear rattling not too far away. We can and probably will make excuses for the apathy shown by our generation until now that has America on the brink of self destruction.

Giving up and giving in is not an option if we're honest. Our opposition are the banking and corporate elite that have forgotten the power that can be wielded by the people. And when the people see through the hypocrisy of government and corporate leaders ordering compliance with rules and laws that they themselves violate, or when these young families are deprived of the use of their own earnings to improve the lives of their own family, and when groups like Antifa and BLM turn on the very people that support them the outcome is inevitable and will likely be very unpleasant but necessary.

If you've happened to notice the incredible number of counties across America that Trump won easily it should become obvious that this is the place to start reversing the globalists attempt to takeover. All of these counties should immediately become sanctuary counties for tax resistors, mask resistors, covid resistors, every sort of FED resistor, otherwise every stripe of resistor to the tyranny in D.C.

The large metro areas that cannot support their socialist agenda and ideals without stealing the hard working middle class tax money will collapse. These sanctuary counties if all were united can defeat those attempting to say "shut up and give us your money so we can continue to ruin your life and take your freedom from you." Pay the county taxes and whatever is necessary to support the place where you live but refuse any authority that has deprived you of your vote. If the local politicians refuse to get behind the sanctuary freedom movement get rid of them by whatever means are necessary. Pension parasites that go along to get a pat on the head or health benefits that you pay for but don't have yourself are leeches.

Many have already voted with their feet by moving out of the inner-shitty and into some county away from the filth generated by the welfare state. These counties surround the metro and if necessary should employ force to restrain the shit from oozing into their quiet country abode.

We the people have complied with these criminals for far too long already. Fucking stop it because when you pay these bastards you are the enemy of freedom !!! And, what are you paying for anyway when your vote means nothing, your rights mean nothing and in the end your LIFE MEANS NOTHING !

Admit the truth for a change and admit you're a battered citizen. The government keeps forcing you to agree with their sick view of how you should live your life, and how you should work like a dog simply to give half to them, for fucking you in the ass ! Then after taking half of your earnings, teaching your kids all about deviant sexual practices, and destroying the idea of families, they want to allow old men to share restroom facilities with your daughters ! Stop thinking that after beating your ass constantly the the D.C. elite "still love you" because they don't.

The Federal thugs are a big problem, granted.

But when Kim stepped across the DMZ and embraced the peacenik Kim, that officially ended the Korean War and brought North Korea into the fold of Rothschild-controlled banks.

There are TWO remaining countries now without those central banks. One is Cuba and the other is Iran.

Do you think Bidette with have any plans whatsoever to try to bring either of those countries to heel?

I didn't think so either. Expect that one of the first moves he will make will be to withdraw the B-52s from Diego Garcia.

Biden is no Trump, and he lacks the courage to handle big problems. ;)
