And the Beat Goes On

The war drum is slowly beating louder and louder. However, instead of being heard in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, it is being heard in Iran. The potential for a war with Iran is reaching a frightening point.

Newly released military contracts detail the US plan to “carry many thousands of military items from Concord, California, to Diego Garcia… [including] 195 smart, guided, Blu-110 bombs and 192 massive 2000lb Blu-117 bombs.” These aren’t your everyday missiles, either. A Blu-110 bomb is used “to penetrate hardened targets, bunkers, concrete walls, etc.” The Blu 117 monsters are used for the same exact job. One can only guess what these “bunker busters” will be used for. Two of Iran’s most important nuclear facilities, Natanz and Qom, are located underground. The US, one of the most vocal opponents of Iran’s nuclear program, is hardly fooling anybody. This most recent shipment of bombs is in preparation for attacking Iran and destroying its nuclear facilities. 

However, all of this would be completely irrelevant if the weapons were not being shipped to a strategic location. Sadly enough, they are. Diego Garcia is home to both an American and British military base (After all, what would a tiny island in the East be without an American military base? No bombs or guns? Oh, the horror!) It is strategically located in the Indian Ocean about 1,000 miles off of the southern coast of India. As a result of this cozy little base, the US is in a perfect position to launch relentless attacks against Iran while being out of reach of Iranian retaliation. In fact, Diego Garcia was used during the wars in Iraq in 1991 and 2003. 

All of this has been done relatively secretly. And this has many experts worried. Dan Plesch, director of the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy at the University of London, remarked, “The US is not publicising the scale of these preparations to deter Iran, tending to make confrontation more likely.” As Gerald Celente has said, “If anybody invades Iran, it is the beginning of World War III.” With the beat growing louder and louder, it looks as if America will make that fatal mistake.
