WILKERSON: WE CAN BOMB IRAN FOR 70 DAYS AROUND THE CLOCK

Meanwhile, as the U.S. is pushing for sanctions to hinder Iran’s nuclear programme, reports say Washington is already gearing up for an attack. A Scottish newspaper, The Sunday Herald, says hundreds of powerful bunker-buster bombs are being shipped to a military base on the British Garcia island, in the Indian Ocean. It was also used by the U.S. for strikes against Iraq during the 1993 and 2003 Gulf wars. Some experts say American bombers would be capable of destroying around ten thousand targets in Iran, in just a few hoursBut former chief of staff to Colin Powell, Lawrence Wilkerson, says that any action would spell disaster for the U.S. military machine.

  1. The idea that America is prepping for war against Iran is more than slightly erroneous. The United States deploys weapons systems all over the world, every day. Scott Lucas talked about this yesterday (and I apologize because I cannot find the link).

    The bottom line is that yes, the US likes to show its potential enemies that it has power, but NO the US is not planning a bombing campaign against Iran.

    However, let’s also be clear that there is a fairly hard push inside the neocon circle to attack Iran before Israel does, and possibly replace the regime there. Apparently, they just don’t learn.
