Israel, US & UK Beat The Drums Of War As They Threaten Iran
War preparations against Iran continue. In the US, legislation, which includes sanctions against Iran's Central Bank and strict curbs on official diplomatic contacts between Washington and Tehran, was approved unanimously by the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Representatives.
The UK is also preparing for War against Iran.
Britain's armed forces are stepping up their contingency planning for potential military action against Iran amid mounting concern about Tehran's nuclear enrichment programme, the Guardian has learned.
Israel has successfully tested a new long range missile, the Jericho 3, capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. The Israeli military also announced that air force jets recently concluded a lengthy exercise over Sardinia, Italy, which included long-distance attacks and mid-air refuelling. The exercise involved 17 Israeli jet fighters, and was conducted together with Italian and Dutch planes. The destination enabled the jets to drill a 2,400km flight, including mid-air refuelling; impossible in Israel’s limited air space. This looks to be a dress rehearsal for attacks on Iranian targets.
However Iran has not been cowed by this display of Isreakli arrogance. Iran’s chairman of the joint chiefs of staff Hassan Fairouz Abadi warned that Tehran would retaliate with a “surprising punishment” if Israel “pursued such a mistake”. He said Iran was taking the threat seriously, even though the likelihood of such an attack was low, and he warned their retaliation would target the US as well as Israel.
