British Empire Reveals War Plan Against Iran Through the Month of March
February 27, 2012 • 9:13AM

With several major events just days away: the March 4 Presidential election in Russia, the March 2 parliamentary elections in Iran, and the Bibi Netanyahu war rally meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) starting in Washington on March 4, the debate over Iran is intensifying with more open discussion about a "nuclear war" than ever before. And, in an announcement disguised as a leak to the Sun's premiere Sunday issue, "The Sun on Sunday," the British Empire reveals a war plan involving a nuclear submarine deployed to the Persian Gulf in addition to warships, infantry, and aircraft.

Unlike Lyndon LaRouche, commentators — whether pro-war or against-war with Iran — who talk about this nuclear war danger are deluded that such a war would be of limited dimensions.

Of greatest importance is the article by Prime Minister Vladimir Putin that was posted on his website today, to appear in Monday's Moskovskiye Novosti, where he warns against the West taking military action against Iran or Syria, and denounces the "revolting slaughter of Muammar Gaddafi" as "not just medieval but primeval," and the "incarnation" of foreign intervention against national sovereignty.

The British Empire weighed into the war push by leaking its war plan to the premiere issue of Rupert Murdoch's "The Sun on Sunday," that the empire is preparing for war against Iran.

"Britain is reportedly drawing up a battle plan for a war with Iran as top defense officials believe London will be 'sucked into' any new conflict with Tehran."

The Sun says that plans are being made to "send hundreds of troops and a nuclear submarine to the Gulf region," as defense officials believe it is "just a matter of when the war breaks out." The report says that Britain will first fly an infantry battalion to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), an empire puppet in the GCC. British papers point out that the UAE is just 50 km across the sea from Iran, across the Strait of Hormuz.

In addition, the following Royal warships are already in the Gulf: The HMS Daring, a destroyer, arrived in January to join Type 23 frigate HMS Argyll. Minesweepers Pembroke, Quora, Middleton and Ramsey are based in Bahrain and a nuclear submarine is reportedly also in the area, the report said.

Under the war plan, a second submarine armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles would be deployed, the Sun reports.

In addition, the Royal Air Force would send Typhoon and Tornado fighter jets to reinforce helicopter and transport plane crews already stationed in Qatar, Oman, Bahrain and the UAE.

In the U.S., Sen. John McCain, co-sponsor of the resolution to declare that Iran being "nuclear capable" is a casus belli, said telling Israel not to bomb Iran "weakens" Israel and that Netanyahu has every right to be upset with Obama and the U.S.

As expected, at the Sunday meeting of the Israeli government cabinet, Netanyahu railed that the early Feb. 24 IAEA report "proves" that Israel was right about the danger of Iran's nuclear bomb program. He said that his March 5 meeting with Obama will be about the Iran threat.

There are thousands of articles this weekend playing up the phony IAEA report, and reporting that Iran has "stepped up" its nuclear enrichment, bringing it "closer" to weapons grade enrichment. Though far fewer — probably in the hundreds — articles, led by the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, try to dampen the war drive by reporting that "all 16 intelligence agencies" of the United States say that there is no nuclear weapons program in Iran at this time, and that the 2007 NIE on Iran still stands.
