While the American people are kept in the dark like mushrooms and fed […], 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
exposé 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.

  1. What a shame!

    Will this be another Iraq? It seems there is no ending to wars, and always perpatrated by the same countires headed by the almighty USA.

    When will humankind come to its senses and once and for all put a stop to this crazy genocidal spiral? When will the American people realize why their government is hated by the vast majority of the people around the globe?

    When will freedom lovers of America finally admit that freedom is not their monopoly?

  2. Expected

    It is common sense that sooner or later Iran will be attacked for the following reasons:

    • Iran is getting powerful (not necessarily with WMD, which I doubt they have); Israel would never let any of its neighbouring countries get powerful, not even a little.  That’s why there is no peace in the middle east.
    • Iran recently has accepted any currency for oil deals; until now it was an international agreement that oil be sold with US currency.  This will impact the US economy a lot.  Where will they get financing for more wars after all…
    • Arms deals are major sources of income for countries like USA, Russia, France, etc.  They would not want their income to go down by the so-called peace anywhere!

    So we should soon expect a blow to Iran to make sure that Israel is ‘safe’, arms flow unabated and oil gets sold in US currency….just to name a few reasons.

  3. Oil, oil, oil!

    I think from the beginning of that "old" Story in Middle East (or Ottoman Empire destruction) the goal was : Oil-oil-oil!

    US (as successor of the British Empire) is addicted to oil! The rest is only "bla-bla", i.e.: fruitless literature ( non-ideology: "Human Rights", "Liberty", "Democracy"!)

    1. We Americans do what every other nation does

      You’re right frenchy…the world (including USA) is addicted to oil.  However, unlike the cowards living in France who simply bow their heads down and get spanked by everyone, we Americans do what every other nation in the world does:  we make business deals, alliances, and if need to we spank the hell out of the wankers.  We don’t apologize to anyone… Russia does the same thing…as does every other world power.

      The French on the other hand destroyed their chance at being a world power by first invading Russia, and getting spanked, and then banishing their excellent military leader Napoleon Bonaparte to the island of Saint Helena where he died.

      Facts are simple:  Every nation whichever was occupied or for whom US fought for (not fought with) has a very good quality of life for its citizens.  Germany, Japan, South Korea, Iraq, Phillipines, France. Yes, there are hundreds of thousands of US soldiers’ graves all over France…but I do not recall any French dying for the freedom of America.

      The Marshall Plan implemented by United States following WW II (that’s when you French got spanked again by the Germans) rebuilt all of Europe using billions of American taxpayers’ monies!  While UK and France couldn’t stand-up to the German army, the American and Russian soldiers died in millions for Your freedom!

      My heartfelt thanks goes to the American and Russian soldiers who died to free the world from Nazi opression! God Bless them all!

      1. Your personal political and

        Your personal political and human sensitivities are so far from ours that no answer is needed for you. That’s the reason I’ll never go to the states to visit my cousins.

        PS: In your historical review, you have just forgotten ‘La Fayette and Rochambeau"…

        LOL

  4. America, Canada and the conflict in the Middle East

    I wonder why  people who make a (big time) living by accusing, blaming America, Canada and the West etc for every conflict around the world like sending our young men and women to Afghanistan, trying to bring democracy for the first time who voted, are going to school, going to work… in their history.

    In Iraq, toppling a brutal dictator, who killed millions of people, and there too for the first time they had free elections?

    Why are these things unimportant for the national security of Canada and America?

    Bringing peace between Palestine and Israel by creating side by side two free and democratic states ?

    Wasn’t Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Menahem Begin, Anwar el Sadat, Golda Meir who worked hard inspite of the assassination of President Sadat?

    Sadat’s famous words "NO MORE WARS YA GOLDA"

    In my opinion it is very very possible to solve the present problems, but?

    SOME people need AMERICA ONLY when there is a disaster?

    Pope Jean Paul said, "YOU CANNOT BE PICKY TO BE A CATHOLIC".

    I am a loyal  Canadian and a proud Armenian.  I chose to live in Canada 42 years ago for its values among other things, and I respect and cherish our big cousins in the south, whether G.W.Bush or Hussein Obama.

    Aller au revoir!
