ISRAEL DEPLOYS NUCLEAR SUBMARINES TO IRAN: A HIDDEN STORY

At the end of May, Zero Hedge reported that Israel will deploy three submarines equipped with nuclear cruise missiles to Iran, and, in its typical humorous fashion, observed that this news is news that the stock markets “must ignore”:

Israel Deploys 3 Nuclear-Armed Subs Off Iran Coast; Iran Warns Of Forceful Response To “Evil Acts”

Now, note the picture of the submarine.

Now, if you’re thinking that this nuclear cruise missile armed submarine looks suspiciously familiar, that’s because it is; it’s one of those German Dophin-class submarines with their nuclear cruise missile launching capability that Germany has been selling Israel:

German Dolphin Class Submarine 197x200 ISRAEL DEPLOYS NUCLEAR SUBMARINES TO IRAN: A HIDDEN STORY

Sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand geopolitical words, because if, say, the USA, France, or Great Britain had sold Israel any of their ballistic missile submarines, there would have been a veritable whirlwind of international outcry. But when Germany does it, nary a peep is heard, for obvious historical reasons. But few seem to be asking the pertinent question here: as Israel ratchets up the tensions with Iran, which cannot nuke anybody, what is Germany doing with u-boats with a capability to launch nuclear cruise missiles? Technically, of course, the German u-boats are not nuclear submarine, and technically, of course, they are not boomers or ICBM launching u-boats. And cruise missiles are not, technically, strategic offensive weapons. And technically, Germany doesn’t even have cruise missiles, even though it is a German firm that is involved in building France’s latest submarine-launched nuclear ICBM. And why is Germany, a signatory to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, selling such deadly weapons to a regional power with its own dangerous political establishment?

Sorry for all the questions folks… just thinking out loud.

See you on the flip side…

EXPLOSION IN IRANIAN NUCLEAR ISOTOPE ENRICHMENT FACILITY?

NOW IT’S SYRIA’S URANIUM???

Really…it’s getting to be like a bit of theater isn’t it? It would be laughable, were it not for the loss of life and suffering involved. We’ve seen every excuse in the world trotted out, it seems, to justify an “intervention” by the West in Syria, with the usual “human rights” leading the charge. That,[More...]
