Upgrades On Diego Garcia : Preperation For Bombing Iran?


The US is secretly upgrading special stealth bomber hangars on the British island protectorate of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean in preparation for strikes on Iran's nuclear facilities, according to military sources.

The improvement of the B1 Spirit jet infrastructure coincides with an "urgent operational need" request for £44m to fit racks to the long-range aircraft.

That would allow them to carry experimental 15-ton Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP) bombs designed to smash underground bunkers buried as much as 200ft beneath the surface through reinforced concrete.more

I have reported previously on Diego Garcia and the shameful treatment of the Chagoans by the British Government.

Diego Garcia. Chagoans, "They Died Of Sadness"
