Fifth Rev. Guard Commander Dies of 'Heart Attack'
radicalislam.org ^ | 14FEB12 | Reza Kahlili

Posted on 02/14/2012 8:40:17 AM PST by bayouranger

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

Being in your 50s and having something to do with Mad Mo’ in Iran are high risk factors.

It does appear to be a Soviet style ‘house cleaning’ to ensure loyalty in preparation for some big action. Couldn't help but notice the names of some of these guards divisions, it reminds me of the Nazi's Adolf Hitler and Herman Goring division type of names.

Doctors determined the heart attacks were caused by complications from severe cases of lead poisoning.

Or as they called it in the former Soviet Union, “The Kremlin Flu.”

I remember back in the late 1960s or early ‘70s when a large number of Russian Generals began to die of this “flu”.

Our intelligence began to wonder why so many died within a few weeks of each other.

One thing that has really surprised me it that the number of “mysterious” deaths of peeps associated with Baraq has not NEARLY been like the Clinton years.

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

The person really does have a true heart attack! All there is as a clue is a 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.

BANGKOK (AP) — An Iranian man carrying grenades blew off his own legs and wounded four civilians Tuesday after an earlier blast shook his house in Bangkok, Thai authorities said. The explosions came a day after an Israeli diplomatic car was bombed in India — an attack Israel blamed on Iran.

Well...technically...the injected air bubble results in an aneurism in the brain. A "stroke."

But the results are the same.
Death.
=============================

Since this seems to be a successful on-going operation, we can all be sure that no U.S. (intel or otherwise) agency is involved with it.

Do they even bother to ‘create’ a heart attack - or just report one, post mortem. . .

Arkanside is a reference to the number of people who died under mysterious circumstances during the Clinton Administration. Typical case is Vince Foster.

Clinton was governor of this state till he became President of the US.

You actually have to know what you're doing to accomplish this. Not for beginners. To "guarantee" a myocardial infarction (cardiac arrest) you'd need to get a 6-CC bubble into a fairly large vein somewhere upstream of either the right atrium and tricuspid valve or the superior vena cava. For example, you can't just shoot a small bubble into the back of someone's hand. Wouldn't be clinically effective.

FYI

LMAO!!!!!

You’re on the right track. Succinylcholine injection with a pen-like device: quick and deadly - it mimics heart attack symptoms and leaves virtually no trace.

Arkansas had its own organized crime network called the Dixie Mafia. Not Italian, but they ran the rackets, such as prostitution and gambling, in that state.

Clinton had dealings with them, possibly through old family connections, and he in turn offered them protection for their help in handling his “problems.”

Like Obama a twisted sense of “lying” enters the scene with their having to hand over the bodies to their family. There were cases where the bodies were so mangled after torture and abuse and horrible rapes including with enormous foreign objects - both men and women - that they encased the bodies in big cement/concrete blocks before returning them.

This way they could claim the visible damage was caused by families extricating them from the blocks.

Plus the bonus of forcing the families to hard work to get the bodiescleaned up for burial.
