|Scottish Newspaper Exposes U.S. Plan to Hit Iran
“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 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.
