Posted on 11/02/2011 11:07:18 AM PDT by Strategy
The U.K. is stepping up its preparations for a military strike on Iran, the Guardian newspaper reported on Wednesday. According to the report, the U.K. is increasingly concerned over Tehran's nuclear program, and is preparing to deploy Royal Navy ships in the coming months to assist a possible U.S. attack on key facilities in Iran.

The UK? Guess this means all the news reports of Israel doing it alone are not true.
If true, the headline should have read US to attack Iran.
Boy wonder about to wag the dog for reelection effort?
“This’ll show those crackers that I’m not a Muslim. Why didn’t us killing that fake bin Ladin work, though? Because we didn’t show the body? I thought they were all ignorant, illiterate sheeple, David.”
If the UK scrapes together enough assets to help the US finally do something about Iran, the hordes of muzzies in UK-stan will most likely go insane.
I just read somewhere else that the the U.K. defence minister quietly visited Israel recently. This might be a leak designed to confuse the Iranians. At best, I would expect logistical support (intelligence) from the U.K. and the United States for an Israeli strike. But I have a hard time believing Ubama would do that much. The U.K. more likely.
Destroying Iran as a axis of evil and returning it to is peace loving new generation would break the back of the entire terrorists jihad.
The jihad does not have a high fixed cost maintenance expense. So, it cant go bankrupt and subsequently disappear; like DEC inc. or Varian inc. It is more like a cloud of evil spores. The spores lie dormant until the conditions are right. Then the spores grow.
The conditions are as right for the jihad now (with Obambi in the WH) as theyve ever been. After January 20th 2013, it is likely the war will start going against the jihad. The jihad, and Iran, will strike as hard as they can in the intervening months.
Hmmmmm. It’s odd timing considering this report from yesterday:
“Boy wonder about to wag the dog for reelection effort”
I can’t see Obama pulling the trigger.
He loses is base.
Iran is not Libya and Iran will respond.
Iran probably finally got rid of the computer virus infecting their process controllers.
If the enrichment processes are going again the only choice left is to strike the nuke sites.
The UK yea right. LOL
Something is lost in the translation... surely it must come out to say "...is preparing to deploy Royal Navy ships in the coming months to assist a possible U.S. attack on key Conservative Republican facilities to please the Mullahs of Iran..."
Bender, stop... calling me 'Shirley!'
I hear that the French and Canadian armies will be involved as well. Boy Iran is REALLY going to be in trouble. s/
The UK yea right. LOL
The Brits doing the job our so-called American president won’t do.
The UK muzzies won’t be upset. /s
Wonder what the Saudis are up to lately. They have a vested interest in this.
Must be getting their nickers pressed.
MUSLIMS IN LONDON =
Point understood, but Varian didn’t go bankrupt. It was bought by Agilent last year.
Good. Let’s take care of business.
Haaretz is Debka Lite.

If true, what the hell are people thinking to release this information to the media, and, thus, to the enemy?
Very very interesting
Attacking Iran is just another step toward installing the new Caliphate. The US-EU and UN seem intent on doing that.
Nothing else he's done has brought him back to deity status. That's the only way he could win reelection. His record sucks!
He ran as a man (or God) who could bring the world together through peace, but so far we're at war or bombing or something in 5 places. Iran would get us into #6.
We're 16 trillion in debt, yet Oboma has no problem (or no self control) with spending.
I say let the next president deal with this in 2012. Oboma has screwed up enough already. Lybia is sinking into radical Islam like a rock! We're sinking into a depression even faster! The guy hasn't done anything right. If it weren't for Bush, Osoma and Qaddafi would still be howling at the moon 7 times a day!
God help us if the tries to take in Iran. It would be better to wait for an adult to handle it. The U.S. can't take much more of this guy.
The streets of Londonistan could burn.
The UK and the French led off on the Libyan adventure, so why not? OTOH, I always thought the UK was strongly opposed to military action against Iran. Unless something has changed drastically?
This wouldn't destroy Iran, and if anything it would make both the government and general population more radical and anti-American; don't kid yourself that the Green Movement protesters don't want Iran to have nuclear weapons.
And even massive strikes wouldn't end their nuclear capability - it would just delay nuclear weapons by a few years; thus Iran would have to be re-struck every couple of years or so till they gave up on their program.
UK has no Navy? Can they send their single gunboat or something? What good would the old sinking ash can do to mighty Iran? Can a muslem nation attack another muslem nation? This report is a joke—there will be no attack.
Maybe its a deliberate leak to send a warning to Iran?
"I think eventually there will be a big (financial) bust and then the whole credit expansion will come to an end. Before that happens, governments will continue printing money which in time will lead to a very high inflation rate, and the economy will not respond to stimulus. The average family will be hurt by that, and then in order to distract the attention of the people, the governments will go to war. People ask me against whom? Well, they will invent an enemy." - Dr. Marc Faber (The Gloom, Boom & Doom Report)
Russia gives H-bomb factories to Iran, China gives them ICBM’s to deliver the bombs, the trade? Nuke Americas forward army in Iraq and Afganistan to break the defense of America for later invasion by Russia and China. Even our National Guard is overseas now.
Iran is disposable to the Reds.
They have submarines carrying a considerable number of Tomahawks.
It’s always helpful to read the actual article than some newspaper’s summary of other newspaper’s article; MUCH more detail here:
Well, when I lived in Israel, Debka was a hell of a lot more accurate than the MSM. Some of the reports out of Debka that FReepers laughed at I saw were true first hand.
The Debka bashing may be popular, but its horsemanure. Debka is not a NEWS source, it is an INTELLEGENCE Leak center. Apples and Oranges...
Oh, and HaEretz is the NY Slimes of Israel. When God sad he would throw sins as far as left is from right, the left end of that scale is HaEretz. HaEretz means The one unique Land, funny that the most virulent anti-zionest newspaper in Israel would take a name like that. But then, wolves do tend to like sheep skin suits.
thanks for the ping
couple of interesting things happening today with regard to this
Given that the UK has very few resources at all, there will be no real anything from them, even if they had the will.
I've tried FR search, with no luck..maybe someone else can find it and post the link. Given the topic of this thread, it fits somewhat...
I thought at first they meant the University of Kentucky...but since they said “royal” I guess it’s the Brits.
Did we ever find the hordes of Chinese troops that DUMBKA said were pouring into Afghanistan in 2001?
The hordes of muzzies in the UK are already insane, our British cousins just don’t realize it in sufficient numbers...yet.
Not really. The jihad is driven by Sunnis (mostly in Saudi Arabia), while Iran is shi’ite. The two groups are natural enemies.
Ain’t gonna happen, but if it ever did, it would be another example of Obama carrying out a Bush policy - Preeemption.
I didn’t visit Afghanistan. Never saw a single Chinese troop anywhere. Did see the IDF troops shift to the Jordanian border during the invasion of Sadam’s commando troops.
Also saw the troop helo’s fly over Jerusalem toward Jordan while people back home laughed at the idea of Jews fighting to save the Jordanian Kings rear in Jordan.
Debka is a rumor mill, just like the MSM, but that does not make them a news agency. A distinction that many miss. They report on what the intelegence community is chattering about. Far more accurately than any MSM leftist rag in America. So give them a break, or better yet, open your own intellegence rag with your connections and do a better job than them.
Easy to point the finger or give them the finger, but to do a better job than them is a bit more difficult. Debka is some of the good guys.
Would starting a war around election time be something he would refuse to do, on moral grounds?
I believe this report.
Iran will be a parking lot when this is all over.
