Saudi Arabia Preparing for Nuclear Fallout from US Attack on Iran

 

Saudi newspaper Okaz claims that the government of Saudi Arabia is preparing the kingdom for the nuclear fallout which could reach the area if the US attacks nuclear installations in Iran.

The news comes days after US Vice President, Dick Cheney’s visit to the country. Some experts claim the Bush Administration is on the brink of launching an attack against Iran’s Bushehr nuclear reactors and is warning neighboring allies.

Admiral William Fallon who was in staunch opposition to the White House rhetoric against Iran, was replaced recently fueling speculation the Administration was preparing for an attack.

That Okaz newspaper is described as “government-guided” Saudi newspaper , whatever that means so I wouldn’t take these claims too seriously …the whole thing looks like the US wants’ to make Iran jumpy so it will overreact to some stage incident to use as an excuse for an attack … unless the boys in the White House are just going all out Nazi style aggression this time.

yea in CoD5 you throw rocks and sticks :P


still S-A is preparing for fall out... what are the turks doing? the israeli's? the jordanians? if shit like this was gonna go down and they wanted to warn a country they feel they will need in the future i think more countries would of came forward.

but on a side note. much like the first gulf war. if a war with iran happened wouldnt you think the sunni countries would form a coalition and help the US fight iran? we had syria and S-A on our side in saddam part 1 why cant it be USA with sunni's vs IRan??? im just saying...

The Al Qaida Are Coming! The Al Qaida Are Coming!
The anticipated attack on Iran is being manufactuered in the same way the attack on a Iraq was. Not through the bravery of the free countries but through the fear instilled in the citizens. This was not a proud act and attacking Iran will not be one out of bravery either.
Look to the profiteers to harvest the cowardice of a one proud people.

If you guys think America will ever start a war without the support of the American people... You have gone insane...I don't even know why I would waist my breath trying to convince you morons. Go back to your Iranian propaganda and third rate sites.

If you seriously think that the current US Govt would consider the opinions of its citizens over the possibility of purchasing and using more of their quite profitable weapons, then i think YOU are mistaken.

  And still  
 
the US has not demonstrated the Iran is deserving of attack. They haven't even fabricated anything this time - they're just going for it!

  In fact  
 
*EVERY* US intelligence agency has said they have no nuclear weapons.

I hope you were being sarcastic. The Bush administration cares less about the American people than any administration in history. If you don't believe me watch this:

  If it doesnt occur now its never gonna happen.....  
 
Admiral William Fallon, the one who said iran wont be attacked under his watch, has been removed as the US chief of central command. The Russian military intelligence are claiming that there is a build up of us troops on the Iraq-Iran borders and that the US are planning a ground and air operation on Iran. Its also being claimed that the Saudi's are preparing for a nuclear fallout. also more US nuclear submarines and 1 more aircraft carrier attack group has been added to their fleet in the Persian Gulf. alsoooooo the recent fighting in iraq is aimed at getting rid of the shia militia who would of disrupted american supplies if they did attack iran in the past. all of this occured in the last 2 weeks except for the sacking of Admiral William Fallon.

  Hmmmm  
 
I really hope WW3 doesn't break out, the majority of the world population is quite content just getting on with life (like me for instance). I don't feel it at all fair that we should be wiped out by nutters who want to go round killing everyone and everything.

I think I'll start a petition to have my own island where I can chill out while the nutters destroy themselves / each other.

Hey, I already inquired about that in the "U.S. Military Build Up to Attack Iran Begins" thread. If you get any good options let me know! I am a good cook, you don't want to miss out on that!

  "Wagons East"!  
 
I don't know if anyone will make the movie reference, but feels a lot like that.

Some centuries it just seems like the whole manifest destiny thing isn't delivering what the package promised.

I dunno about island paradises, but New Zealand and Ice Land don't sound too bad. The world could blow itself up several times over and long as the nuclear winter isn't too sever, they'd prob be just keep on ticking.

Canada and Europe don't sound that bad anymore either....

how far we have fallen...

"MOSCOW, March 27 (RIA Novosti) - Russian military intelligence services are reporting a flurry of activity by U.S. Armed Forces near Iran's borders, a high-ranking security source said Tuesday."

  I agree with steme  
 
I fully agree. The stories in this rag are about as believable as stories that Bush just got a brain and is going to attend MIT.
Strange how every supporting story to confirm this comes from the same rag mag source. They are about as objective as FOX wanabe news.
 
  by: starmutt   04/01/2008 07:11 AM     
  let me say  
 
i personally dont think we are going to attack iran, yes there a issue and all that but they havent really dont much to provoke a attack and THE EYE you say we have been building forces here and there and in the ocean, well maybe there doing this to appear strong and maybe make iran think twice if they play games.

anywho i have my mossberg 500 tactical and my other guns loaded close by if anything happens on our soil.

They should get ready for nuclear war because Hillary said she would "obliterate Iran" in her speech. Watch out for that one.

"If you guys think America will ever start a war without the support of the American people... You have gone insane...I don't even know why I would waist my breath trying to convince you morons. Go back to your Iranian propaganda and third rate sites."

The support level now for a war with Iran is very low but that can be fixed by constant propaganda and if that does not work then you could create a Gulf of Tonkin type of event.
The gulf war (I) had no support either in the beginning but then there was the phoney throwing the babies out of incubators.

Iran has long been a goal for US leaders to occupy once again, certainly pre-dated 9/11 and Bolton (PNACcio) says regime change is the ultimate goal..which would mean boots on the ground.

I think the idea is to try to provoke first... one way or another the neocons will try to make this war happen.
