Scottish Newspaper May Have Exposed U.S. Plan to Hit Iran
By Ralph Forbes
While the American people are kept in the dark like mushrooms and fed bull manure, Scotland’s award-winning newspaper The Sunday Herald Scotland ran an exclusive revealing that hundreds of tons of powerful U.S. “bunker-buster” bombs and other weapons are secretly being shipped from California to the British island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean—strategically placed for missions to Iran—in preparation for an impending attack on the Persian nation.
The Sunday Herald exposť revealed that “the U.S. government signed a contract in January to transport 10 ammunition containers to the island. According to a cargo manifest from the Navy, this included 387 ‘Blu’ bombs, used for blasting hardened or underground structures.”
Superior Maritime Services of Florida has a $699,500 contract to ship many thousands of military items from Concord, Calif., to Diego Garcia. The cargo includes 195 1,000-lb Blu-110 bombs and 192 massive 2,000-lb Blu-117 bombs.
“They are gearing up totally for the destruction of Iran. . . . U.S. bombers are ready today to destroy 10,000 targets in Iran in a few hours,” said Dan Plesch, director of the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy at the University of London, co-author of a recent study on U.S. preparations for an attack on Iran.
Ian Davis, director of the new independent think-tank, Nato Watch, warned the shipment to Diego Garcia is a major concern.
“We would urge the U.S. to clarify its intentions for these weapons, and the [UK] Foreign Office to clarify its attitude to the use of Diego Garcia for an attack on Iran,” he said.
For Alan Mackinnon, chair of Scottish Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, the revelation was “extremely worrying.” He stated: “It is clear that the U.S. government continues to beat the drums of war over Iran, most recently in the statements of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. . . . It is depressingly similar to the rhetoric we heard prior to the war in Iraq in 2003.”
The utter insanity of war against Iran would—at best—be the worst disaster to ever strike the United States. At a bare minimum it would kill the economy of the United States and the world. It could trigger the demise of the United States, or even destroy the Earth.
And yet the madmen who misrule Israel, and their Israel-first minions high up in the U.S. government, are working feverishly to start this unnecessary, unjust war.
