US Preparing To Bomb Iran’s Nuclear Capabilities As Soon As Next Month: Report

US Preparing To Bomb Iran’s Nuclear Capabilities As Soon As Next Month: Report

NKorea Official Threatens to Detonate Hydrogen Bomb on Pacific Ocean
Can The Impending Collapse Of Russiagate Halt The Slide Toward A Nuclear 1914?

As the White House convenes a policy meeting on Iran Thursday involving senior Pentagon officials and cabinet advisers under national security adviser John Bolton, and after a week of intense saber-rattling by President Donald Trump and his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani, a new bombshell report by Australia’s ABC says the White House is drawing up plans to strike Iran’s alleged nuclear facilities as early as next month.

Senior figures in the Australia’s Turnbull government have told the ABC they believe the US is prepared to bomb Iran’s nuclear capability. The bombing could be as early as next month. —ABC report

Crucially, Australia is part of the so-called “Five Eyes” global intelligence partners which includes the US, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, and plays in a key role in hosting top-secret facilities that guide American spy satellites.

According to the breaking report, ABC [Australian Broadcasting Corporation] has learned the following based on statements of key senior defense and intelligence officials:

  • Senior Government figures have told the ABC they believe the Trump administration is prepared to bomb Iran
  • They say Australian defence facilities would likely play a role in identifying possible targets
  • But another senior source, in security, emphasizes there is a difference between providing intelligence and “active targeting”

The report cites high level Aussie government officials who say that secretive Australian defense and intelligence facilities would likely cooperate with the United States and Britain in identifying targets in a strike on Iran.

One particular facility, the Pine Gap joint defense facility in the Northern Territory, would play a significant targeting role in joint US-led strikes on Iran, according to the report, it’s “considered crucial among the so-called ‘Five Eyes’ intelligence partners… for its role in directing American spy satellites.”

And further, other agencies are expected to play a role:

Analysts from the little-known spy agency Australian Geospatial-Intelligence Organisation would also be expected to play a part.

Canada would be unlikely to play a role in any military action in Iran, nor would the smallest Five Eyes security partner New Zealand, sources said.

However, though officials speaking to ABC on condition of anonymity say intelligence plans for targeting suspected Iran nuke sites have begun, Australia’s foreign ministry is still seeking to avoid war through intense diplomatic efforts.

“Australia is urging Iran to be a force for peace and stability in the region,” Foreign Minister Julie Bishop told ABC’s AM program on Thursday.

The report comes after President Trump’s all caps twitter tirade on Sunday which warned Iran to “NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE…”

      Very simply put, John Bolton is a smarter and better man than you. The threat of strength can often achieve desired results so that actual force is not required. Just like the threat of imposed tariffs has helped reach a better trade agreement with the EU. Good negotiators take a very firm stand expecting some compromise.

      If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place. CLAPPER’S OWN CONFESSION

        Eisenhower got rid of Patton because he didn’t want to be overshadowed by him.
        As Patton did with Rommel, he read his book! Then kicked his ass using what he learned. And of course his aggressive “Don’t hold a position, keep attacking”! way of fighting. When you have the enemy “On the run”, you don’t stop. You run faster to finish them off! Patton would never have told the enemy one damn thing! Unlike Barry, tell them when, where, and how he was going to proceed.
        Iran could be taken out with only the Alabama National Guard. I’d bet only one carrier battle group would be needed. That includes the carrier, and all it’s support ships. Which includes nuclear subs. Don’t forget the “Seals”!

    This piece of news is very irresponsible and ill advised. Why don’t you people just tell the Iranians exactly what date and time the attack is going to happen + the amount of force involved.

      All this is just pure Propaganda nothing more. To control incite sway the masses Propaganda must be used- To tell a lie you need to tell a really big Lie…“Propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated are confident they are acting on their own free will.”“…the rank and file are usually much more primitive than we imagine. Propaganda must therefore always be essentially simple and repetitious.”

      If the U.S. tries to initiate a “pre-emptive” strike, we will regret it “bigly!” I worked for a Col. in the Iranian Air Force in the mid ’70s. He was also a PhD in engineering and one subject we talked about quite a bit was nuclear weapon design. They have had the capability for over 40 years and probably have the warheads in stock by now. Thinking them as an “illiterate polliwog” nation will be the American downfall due to overconfidence. That statement of yours is very Trumpian. You may think you’re invincible, but you’re about to learn an exceptionally painful lesson. I now see absolutely no reason why any NATO nation or Canada would come to our defence because they have been insulted universally. I think you’ll find our friends in an altercation could be counted on one hand.

        War games and exercises show that the country that executes a preemptive strike will win the war. The country that waits to be struck first finds out that all of the potential enemy offensive weapons were expended in the preemptive strike so there are fewer enemy targets to destroy. If Iran ever tries to attack an American force, like they did under Obama’s time, they will find their nuclear sites destroyed in response, Remember the Trump doctrine: Hit ’em harder where it hurts the most.

        Look Vlad…..I’m not at all surprised you stated what you did, and also, of your confidence in Iran’s military capability. However it is shortsighted when you compare (apples to apples) on destructive capability alone. It’s just not comparable in my view. You apparently do not have the slightest notion nor insight into the U.S.’s destructive capability potential in such an insignificant dot on the map such as IRAN. I would advise you to re-think your wartime strategy and come up with another realistic outcome for such an engagement.

      President Trump should make Obamma the new Iranian Ambassador and Soros his right-hand man and send them both to Iran just prior to the bombing of Iran.

        Great strategy! Soros is the one that founded the “Open Borders Society” back in 1985. He has since “Donated” $38 BILLION to the group. The society then funds over 2,300 liberal groups like BLM, ACLU, MoveON, etc. Where else can all these liberal college grads with zero job experience and skills get a “Position”? Soros “OWNS” OBIMBO, Hillary, PeLowC, Comey, et all. You don’t really think these rioters, protestors, and others really pay for all those buses, motel rooms, food, etc. do you? Would you pay your kids to do these activities???

    It would be a grave mistake to bomb Iran, which could be the start of another world war. I have no doubt Bolton is pushing this as he has been a neocon warmonger since GW Bush. But I don’t believe the President is planning to do this.

        The BC was declared to be a “Forgery” by Obama’s own lawyer. Looked at it with software and all experts said it was a software generated document. NOT a genuine BC. Look at Michael’s BC, he was born a boy in Chicago, and there are/were pics of him in his football uniform playing high school football.
        Having your genetals removed, and a vagina surgically created does NOT make you a female. No ovaries, mammary glands, or uterus. What a mess, we had our “FIrst Tranny” in the White House. And he was called the “First Lady”! Wait until/if Hillary wins the third time around. “Slick Willy” will be the “First Sexual Predator”???

      Obamma and his administration along with the sanctuary politicians should all be in jail about now. Mueller should be investigating the Uranium one deal with Russia buying USA uranium in 2015. President Trump was not the President in 2015 . Guess who was the POTUSA during 2015? Stop wasting hundreds of millions of taxpayers money on a fake Fraudulent investigation? President TRUMP should put all of them in Jail. You could use the mothball fleet to house the people being arrested at no cost to the tax_payers. Guess what? The mothball fleet has no internet,cell phones and no TV.I guess you’ll have to read the book”Killing the DEEP STATE”by JEROME R.CORSI,PHD. Very good reading and it’s NEW YORK TIMES Bestselling Author.

    I agree with you Mike C. Being a veteran, I now be President Trump will do what he needs to do to keep America safe and at peace. He will not let anyone know when and if he is going to bomb Iran. Thank God he has a pair where Obama was a ruthless coward that only cared about a few crooked members of his so called cabinet.

    If this is true, it would be considered treason to publish our plans were we at war today. I am very disappointed in such reporting because it may undermine military planning. The only justification I can imagine is if the administration deliberately leaked this stuff for no purpose other than alarming Iran so that they understand their rhetoric could have dire consequences.

  • comment-avatar

    So did they base this on the fact that Trump replied to Iran’s threat that we were prepared?
    If it were true, blasting it to the world is a big mistake. They might just bomb us , thinking we were preparing.
