Art Bell on Now: Al Qaeda May Have Acquired Stealthy French Sub with Nukes!
The guest on Art Bell's show on Coast2Coast is saying that the French sold stealthy sub armed with 16 cruise missles to Pakistan. He is claiming that al Qaeda may have acquired one of these subs!
On right now.
Information about this type of sub is posted here:
Agosta 90B Sub
Didn't the last model come with screen doors and windows?
Just a though.
I am not saying that Bell's guest is correct. Just reporting to Freepers what is being said right now. He is arguing that the French made a deal not only to sell submarines but to build Pakistan a state of the art base to make more. He is claiming the Pakis have two subs now and ar building a third. He also is claiming that we should be very concerned about Pakistan's stability and their naval weapons.
Is this the same base as the one that the French workers were killed by a bomb a year or two ago?
& also be concerned about the naval port China is building for Pakistan on the Makran coast.
"Wasn't an Exocet used to sink an English ship during the Fackland war?"
Yes, the HMS Sheffield was damaged off the coast of the Falklands by a Exocet missile fired by an Argentinian Super Etendard (French aircraft which also can operate on the French aircraft-carriers). The ship then burned out and sank while being towed.
Here a story:
