"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Diego Garcia Ready To Go

I don't live in Scotland so don't usually read the Sunday Herald.  Is it a credible news source or the Scottish equivalent of England's Sunday Sport?
"Hundreds of powerful US “bunker-buster” bombs are being shipped from California to the British island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean in preparation for a possible attack on Iran.

"The Sunday Herald can reveal that the US government signed a contract in January to transport 10 ammunition containers to the island. According to a cargo manifest from the US navy, this included 387 “Blu” bombs used for blasting hardened or underground structures.

"Experts say that they are being put in place for an assault on Iran’s controversial nuclear facilities. There has long been speculation that the US military is preparing for such an attack, should diplomacy fail to persuade Iran not to make nuclear weapons...

"Crucially, the cargo includes 195 smart, guided, Blu-110 bombs and 192 massive 2000lb Blu-117 bombs.
How many more wars will these peace-loving, bomb-banning, war-mongering socialist governments take us into?

  1. GV caught that one elsewhere today. It is the 30,000lb bunker busters that we need to worry about. If they are down Diego way then that's Iran in the frame.

    Although it could be a cover for use of mini nukes in Iran.

  2. Simultaneously in front of our eyes and behind our backs - very clever of them. It looks like the pundits were right - Iran's next for the domino treatment.
