Chossudovsky: Preparing for an Attack on Iran?US, Israel Drill in Persian Gulf

Israeli intelligence news confirms the holding of US-Israel military exercises in the Persian Gulf, simulating an attack on Iran, as well as a counterattack. by the Islamic Republic.

Deafening silence of the Western media. There are no corroborating reports in the US and European media regarding these war games.

According to Israel’s DebkaFile, these exercises were ordered by President Obama. They involve the US and Israeli Air Force, naval forces, as well as intelligence and ground forces.

The exercises are intended “to simulate [Iran’s] reactions to a potential US-Israel strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities.” (DEBKAfile April 28, 2012)

“Sunday, April 22, the US also transferred a number of advanced stealth F-22 fighter bombers, believed to be from the 302nd Fighter Squadron 302, from the joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Alaska to the Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates. According to our sources, the F-22 jets will join the F-15s of the Massachusetts Air National Guard’s 104th Fighter Wing which were transferred to the Al Udeid base a month ago.

Their mission will be to destroy the Iranian air force and air defense batteries so as to clear the way for US and Israeli bombers to go into action against Iran’s nuclear sites and the strategic infrastructure of its army and Revolutionary Guards Corps. This unprecedented US buildup of air might – supplementing the aircraft on the decks of the USS Abraham Lincoln and USS Enterprise, to be joined by a third carrier as soon as the offensive gets underway – shows Tehran that the Obama administration is serious about using military means as extra pressure on Iran to give way in diplomatic negotiations – both with the six powers and with the US through clandestine channels.” (Ibid)

These military drills were timed to take place prior to the second round of negotiations with Tehran regarding its nuclear program scheduled for May. (For further details on the Debka report click here)
