News.Telegraph: Government in secret talks about strike against Iran
The Government is to hold secret talks with defence chiefs tomorrow to discuss possible military strikes against Iran.
A high-level meeting will take place in the Ministry of Defence at which senior defence chiefs and government officials will consider the consequences of an attack on Iran.
It is believed that an American-led attack, designed to destroy Iran’s ability to develop a nuclear bomb, is “inevitable” if Teheran’s leaders fail to comply with United Nations demands to freeze their uranium enrichment programme.
Of course, a military operation is INEVITABLE. Iran has stated time and again that it will not stand down their uranium enrichment.
The nature of an operation:
Tactical Tomahawk cruise missiles fired from US navy ships and submarines in the Gulf would, it is believed, target Iran’s air defence systems at the nuclear installations.
That would enable attacks by B2 stealth bombers equipped with eight 4,500lb enhanced BLU-28 satellite-guided bunker-busting bombs, flying from Diego Garcia, the isolated US Navy base in the Indian Ocean, RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire and Whiteman USAF base in Missouri.
Now, Iran WILL retailiate by mining the Persian Gulf, playing the “oil card” and/or firing chemical laced missles at Israel or United States bases in Iraq or Turkey.
The United States can retaliate by a land invasion of Iran or a strategic nuclear attack on Iran’s Army and Revolutionary Guard inflicting millions of military and collateral civilian deaths.
The “Winds of War” are blowing again…….
