    Default Rumors of US Strike on Iran - US B-52H Stratofortress bombers sent to Middle East



    There were rumors of a possible US strike on Iran back on Nov 16


    Trump Sought Options for Attacking Iran to Stop Its Growing Nuclear Program

    WASHINGTON - President Trump asked senior advisers in an Oval Office meeting on Thursday whether he had options to take action against Iran's main nuclear site in the coming weeks. The meeting occurred a day after international inspectors reported a significant increase in the country's stockpile of nuclear material, four current and former U.S. officials said on Monday.

    A range of senior advisers dissuaded the president from moving ahead with a military strike. The advisers - including Vice President Mike Pence; Secretary of State Mike Pompeo; Christopher C. Miller, the acting defense secretary; and Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff - warned that a strike against Iran's facilities could easily escalate into a broader conflict in the last weeks of Mr. Trumps presidency...


    Any strike - whether by missile or cyber - would almost certainly be focused on Natanz, where the International Atomic Energy Agency reported on Wednesday that Irans uranium stockpile was now 12 times larger than permitted under the nuclear accord that Mr. Trump abandoned in 2018. The agency also noted that Iran had not allowed it access to another suspected site where there was evidence of past nuclear activity.

    Mr. Trump asked his top national security aides what options were available and how to respond, officials said.

    After Mr. Pompeo and General Milley described the potential risks of military escalation, officials left the meeting believing a missile attack inside Iran was off the table, according to administration officials with knowledge of the meeting.

    Mr. Trump might still be looking at ways to strike Iranian assets and allies, including militias in Iraq, officials said. A smaller group of national security aides had met late Wednesday to discuss Iran, the day before the meeting with the president.

    White House officials did not respond to requests for comment.

    Now those rumors are getting hotter !!

    US sends B-52H Stratofortress bombers to Middle East



    23 November 2020

    " Move comes amid reports and speculation Trump administration may take military action against Tehran before Biden enters office

    The United States this week rapidly deployed several heavy bombers to the Middle East this week in an apparent threat to Iran, amid swirling speculation that US President Donald Trump plans to take military action against Tehran before President-elect Joe Biden enters office.

    US Central Command said the planes were sent into the region to deter aggression and reassure US partners and allies.

    In a highly irregular move, the B-52H Stratofortress planes were seen flying toward Israeli airspace on Saturday en route to the base where they will be stationed, likely in Qatar. The aircraft were spotted on civilian tracking software approaching Israel before they apparently turned off their transponders, rendering them invisible on those applications."

    Is this the rumored Trump's attack on Iran ??



    Here's more info:

    Trump himself on Friday retweeted a posting from Israeli journalist Yossi Melman, an expert on the Israeli Mossad intelligence service, about the killing. Melman's tweet called the killing a "major psychological and professional blow for Iran."

    Trump Pentagon deploys USS Nimitz aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf: report

    November 27, 2020

    " The Pentagon is deploying a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf, CNN national security correspondent Barbara Starr reported Friday.

    "The aircraft carrier USS Nimitz is being moved back into the Persian Gulf region along with other warships to provide combat support and air cover as US troops withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan by January 15 under President Trump's orders a defense official tells CNN," Starr reported.

    "The official said the move was decided before news came of the assassination of a prominent Iranian nuclear scientist," Starr explained. "But the movement of the US forces is an increased deterrence message to Iran regardless the official noted."

    It would not surprise me to see Trump initiate a very hot war on Iran.

    Why would he want to do that? It would cost him the support of 80 million normal Americans now behind him. Hot middle east war would be giving the ruling class what they want.
