WikiLeaks: Podesta Warns Persian Gulf 'Nuclear War' Is Coming

14 October 2016.

John Podesta reveals that a nuclear war in the Persian Gulf is very likely in leaked emails released by Wikileaks

A leaked email from Clinton's campaign Chairman John Podesta reveals plans to prepare for a nuclear war in the Middle East in the wake of the Iran nuclear deal. 

In the email, Podesta agrees with predictions made by Senator Mark Kirk in which he says that a nuclear war is likely kick off in the Persian Gulf in the very near future.

Podesta's email was in response to a message from John Anzalone, in which Anzalone quotes Kirk's predictions.

"This agreement condemns the next generation to cleaning up a nuclear war in the Persian Gulf … This is the greatest appeasement since Chamberlain gave Czechoslovakia to Hitler."

"Yup," Podesta responds to the email.

John Podesta Wikileaks email warns of 'nuclear warn' in the Persian Gulf reports:

What exactly that means is unclear, although Kirk's campaign is taking it as "recognition from leaders of both parties that the Iran Deal is tragic and dangerous."

The former secretary of state has backed the Iran nuclear deal, which was reached in 2015. However, according to a 2015 New York Times report, Clinton said the deal would only work "as part of a larger strategy toward Iran" that contained capital Tehran's power in the region as sanctions are lifted. Kirk's opponent in November, Rep. Tammy Duckworth, also has backed the plan.

The Clinton campaign has not confirmed the authenticity of the emails, nor has NBC News independently authenticated the emails. On Wednesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said the Russian government is suspected in the recent hack.

The Clinton campaign would not directly address the Kirk email, but Podesta issued a statement Wednesday blaming the Russians for allegedly boosting Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's candidacy.

"It is now clear that the illegal hack of my personal acount was - just like the other recent election-related hacks - the work of the Russian government," Podesta said. "This level of meddling by a foreign power can only be aimed at boosting Donald Trump and should send chills down the spine of all Americans, regardless of political party. Despite receiving an intelligence briefing on the Russians' role in masterminding these hacks, Donald Trump continues to side with the Russians by publicly denying their involvement and even cheering on further intrusions."

"Worst of all, the growing number of links between Trump's associates, WikiLeaks and the Russian government raises troubling questions about the possibility that Trump's allies had advance knowledge of the release of these illegally obtained emails," he added.

Podesta suggested Tuesday that former Trump adviser and confidante Roger Stone was in collusion with WikiLeaks. According to NBC News, Stone called that claim "categorically false" Wednesday.

"I have a back-channel communications with WikiLeaks," Stone said. "But they certainly don't clear or tell me in advance what they're going to do."

During the interview, Stone confirmed to NBC News that he and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange have "a mutual friend" and cast doubt on U.S. agencies investigating the cyber attacks.

Year of the Dragon starts on 23 January 2012. People born under the Dragon are passionate, brave and self-assured. At their best they are pioneering spirits; at their worst, they epitomize the old adage: Fools rush in where angels fear to tread. Dragons are generous with their resources, a tendency that at its most negative can reflect a foolhardy attitude towards money. But Dragons in general are blessed with good fortune. They are smart, enterprising and have a wicked sense of humor. They have a natural flair for fashion and are the people to consult if you want to catch up on the latest trends. This Chinese New Year 2012 ushers in the Water Dragon. Water exerts a calming influence on the Dragon’s innate fire. Water Dragons are more open to other people’s opinions than other Dragons which gives them the ability to channel their personal charisma into real leadership qualities. The Dragon and Love Dragons are passionate. They fall in love quickly – and out of love just as quickly. Their charisma and charm is an immense draw to people of the opposite sex whose attention and admiration they crave. Though they have a tendency to treat love like a game, they can settle down when they meet the right partner, someone who’s strong enough not to be bowled over by the Dragon’s flamboyant, independent and stubborn personality. The Dragon’s ideal partners are the Rat, the Monkey, and the Rooster: The Rat is practical, observant and resourceful, able to help the Dragon when extravagant promises have backed the Dragon into a corner. The Monkey is just as popular as the Dragon, curious, intellectual and fun-loving, one of the few personalities the Dragon doesn’t mind sharing the spotlight with. The Rooster can give the Dragon a run for the money on the fashion-forward front; attractive, well-groomed, fiercely loyal and committed to honesty, the Rooster serves as the Dragon’s reality check, keeping the Dragon from making promises that he or she can’t keep. The Dragon and Wealth Dragon years are lucky for anyone thinking of starting a business or initiating a new project of any sort because money is easier to come by for everyone, whether it’s earned, borrowed or received as a gift. Consequently we can expect the economic downturn to ease up a bit in the coming year. Fortunes can be made but they can also be lost: Keep in mind like all good things, the Year of the Dragon will come to an end and you will be held accountable for unreasonable extravagances. Dragons do well in professions that give them the ability to function somewhat autonomously. They make excellent sales people, publicists, political campaigners, lawyers, real estate brokers, actors and politicians. Yes, that's me.
