The Iranian State media just announced that another high ranking Revolutionary Guard commander, Ahmad Sodagar, has died of a heart attack.

Sodagar, a major general, had served as the head of security and intelligence of the Guards’ Khatam-al-Anbia Base and was the chief commander of the Guards’ Prophet Mohammad Division. He had served in the Iran-Iraq war and, at the time of his death, was the head of the program “Defaeh Moghadas” or Holy Defense.

This is the fifth Guard commander to die because of a heart attack or stroke in the past month.

Those reported to have died before him were:

Vafa Ghafarian (52), a senior Guard officer, former senior manager of the Guards defense industry and electronic warfare, and the active chairman of Iran’s telecommunications. It was announced that he died due to illness, although the exact cause of death was not reported.

Abbas Mehri (52), another senior commander of the Guards, was reported by the Iranian authorities to have died in recent days of a stroke.

Ahmad Siafzadeh (55), former head of the Guards University died in recent days due to heart attack.

Mansour Torkan (50), former Guard commander and general manager of a company affiliated with the municipal office of Tehran. The cause of his death was announced as a stroke.

As reported before, a “Removal Committee” was formed recently by the order of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei. The agenda of this committee is based on the possibility of war with the United States. Its mission includes sabotage and assassination before the war, during the war and after the war.

The activities also include “accidental” deaths of opposition members, “suspicious deaths” of those commanders within the Iranian armed forces opposing war, and terrorizing known personalities not in line with Khamenei, then blaming it all on the regime’s enemies. Bombings in public places would again be blamed on the enemies to heighten fear among the populace and consolidate power within loyal forces.

Alan Note:

What so few seem to know is that the injection of an air bubble by a slim needle syringe into a vein - similar to drawing blood samples but in reverse, causes a real heart attack. And if the injection point is well chosen and in a hidden location, diagnosis even with today’s science is very dificult.

The target person really does have a true heart attack! All there is as a clue is a hard to find, tiny pin prick.

Within Iran, this was a time honored way to remove political enemies - or disobedient or recalcitrant allies.

Without having analyzed the status of each of those who have recently died, they are most likely to be IRGC allies of Ahmadi-Nejad, who worked with him in old days when he was an IRGC commander. And now are felt by the Supreme ruler Ali Khameneii to be a potential threat to his plans.

Or have been accused as compromised by the CIA and/or Mossad and/or MI6 or even French and Scandinavian intelligence services.

BTW Thailand is a major center for Islamic Iran intelligence agents and they have bought lots of “protection” from Thai authorities.

What is now appearing is their rabbit hole in Islamic Malaysia, from which they emerge and to which they try to bolt for nearby, immediate refuge.

US businesses cranked up hiring in January in a burst of job growth that pulled the US unemployment rate down to 8.3 percent, nearly a three-year low, official data showed Friday.

Alan Note: Up from the pre-Obama level of some 4.5%

But Matt McDonald at Hamilton Place Strategies said the decline in the labor force participation rate, to 63.7 percent from 64 percent in December, was a worrying sign that people are still dropping out of the workforce.

"If that full participation rate is the goal, our economy is 'missing' 3.8 million workers," McDonald said.

(Alan Note: If they/Obama massage these numbers any harder, they will get busted for prostitution). (hat tip fhayek FreeRepublic).

AND the more acccurate unemployment is 9.3% while REAL unemployment including those who have dropped out and no longer search for work puts the figure at between 16% and 20%! Notice the part of the positive surge  comes from the Administration retaining rather than firing government employees from hugely overblown Departments.

The blockbuster jobs report blew past expectations, providing a shot of good news for President Barack Obama's reelection bid in November. The economy added 243,000 net jobs last month, the Labor Department reported, much better than the average analyst forecast.

Businesses put 257,000 jobs on their payrolls, while government layoffs, which had limited net jobs generation over the past two years, declined.
