Sources say F16 suicide mission armed with 20-kiloton bomb recalled by Israelis under threat of U.S. Sidewinder missile shootdown
As escalation towards a war with Iran reaches fever pitch, an online journalist today breaks the astounding news that Israeli fighter jets have already attempted to bomb tactical locations in Iran with nuclear weapons nearly twice as powerful as the one dropped on Hiroshima in 1945, only to be turned back by U.S. warplanes over Iraq.
William Thomas, familiar to many for his work in ascertaining the true nature of chemtrails, cites two sources with U.S. and other military contacts who told him that on two recent occasions Israeli fighter bombers armed with both conventional and nuclear weapons were turned back by U.S. planes under threat of missile interception.
The latest incident occurred on January 7th, claims Thomas, in which jets trespassed beyond the authorized zone over Iraq "Before being recalled by Israeli authorities." Sources told Thomas that the attack squadron "Comprised three IAF F-16s. Each carried conventional munitions—as well as a single 20-kiloton nuclear bomb."
Thomas goes into great depth about the circumstances behind the attempted raid in a near 5,000 word article posted on his website.
According to Thomas' source, Israeli warplanes "Are routinely “topped off” by American aerial refueling tankers, but only on condition that the Israeli jets fly a “racetrack” holding pattern—and do not continue “downtown” toward Iran."
The target of the January 7 raid was purported to be Iran's 3rd Tactical Air Base at Hamadan, where Revolutionary Guard troops and substantial weapons deposits are stationed. The source even suggested that the attack was designed to be a one way kamikaze mission whereby, "Volunteer pilots are prepared to fly their nuclear bombs “into their targets” if necessary."
The news dovetails yesterday's scare, briefly provoked by a rumor that an Iranian missile had struck a U.S. naval vessel in the Gulf. "The bond market briefly pared losses on talk of possible military engagement between the United States and Iran, but turned back down after the Defense Department said the incident did not occur," reported Reuters.
This followed reports on Wednesday that Iran had shot down a U.S. drone near its border.
It also comes after Iranian officials condemned a U.S. raid on a consulate in the northern Iraqi city of Irbil, during which five Iranian diplomats were kidnapped. Many saw the raid, which was directly authorized by the White House, as an outright attempt on behalf of the U.S. to provoke a heavy handed Iranian response that would boost the Neo-Con's justification for war.
Republican Congressman and Presidential candidate Ron Paul recently expressed his fear during a speech on the House floor that the Bush administration could contrive a staged Gulf of Tonkin style incident to garner domestic and international support for an air strike on Iran's nuclear facilities.
Over the last two weeks events have accelerated a seemingly inevitable path to conflict. American aircraft carriers and nuclear submarines are multiplying in the Persian Gulf and Bush recently appointed Adm. William Fallon, a Navy veteran, to oversee the ground war in Iraq, a contradiction many fear betrays preparation for an attack on Iran's uranium enrichment facilities which could take place as soon as next month according to several analysts.
A bipartisan group of lawmakers in Congress is attempting to rush though legislation that would bar President Bush from authorizing an attack on Iran without House approval but it all seems to be too little too late. Bush's entire Presidency has characterized itself as a unitary dictatorship and his administration has proven itself time and time again perfectly willing to completely ignore the will of Congress and the people in pursuing its preset agenda. In addition, Bush could avoid having to go to Congress by simply providing tacit support for an Israeli strike portrayed as a lone action, as happened this past summer in Lebanon.
The most interesting aspect of such an attack if it does take place will undoubtedly be the response of Russia. Having taken measures to protect their investment in the growth of Iranian nuclear facilities by providing state of the art missile defense systems, the Russians have received severe condemnation from both the U.S. and Israel.
The Turkish Weekly quoted a senior Israeli official in Jerusalem who took a bold swipe at Russia by stating, "We hope they understand that this is a threat that could come back to them as well."

While the non-debate over the next leader continues Blair aims to cement the Big Brother agenda before he leaves
A series of policy review documents have been published today by the Cabinet Office of the British Government that detail Tony Blair's desire to implement radical "crime tackling" measures that would not look out of place in the most hellish of dictatorship states on the face of the planet.
Blair has said that measures including microchipping the mentally ill and injecting sex offenders with hormones to negate their desires, so called "chemical castration", are aimed at ensuring that a "new New Labour" agenda will take the Government into the next election after he steps down.
Blair announced that the measures were intended to shake up a public that are "getting bored" of the government.
One document, entitled Crime, Justice And Cohesion, says there will have to be "trade-offs" between liberty and security as technology and profiling are used to tackle crime.
The policy paper also calls for the possible implementation of technology such as face and voice recognition, a DNA database, identity cards, and satellite surveillance.
The papers come at a time when Blair is fiercely defending plans to centralise data on all citizens, calling it "sharing data in a sensible way so the customer gets a better service", while critics and opposition MPs are labeling it "a database from the cradle to the grave".
The plans for a central database are nothing new, we have previously highlighted the long term agenda to centralise information into one giant hub that will link into the already existing DNA database and hook up to a national ID card.
Without ANY parliamentary debate or legislation, every person in this country is being targeted for inclusion on a DNA database from birth. Hundreds of thousands of children aged between 10 and 18 have had their DNA added to the database despite never being cautioned or charged for any offence.
The British government has also passed legislation to make every offence arrestable. Under Section 44 of the Terrorism Act, this includes not giving your details if stopped by police. Every suspect arrested, even if proven innocent, has their DNA added to the criminal database and stored forever in perpetuity.
Meanwhile EU officials are crying out for a massive pan-European network of DNA and fingerprint databases which would also be open to the Department of Homeland Security in the US. This does not bode well for anyone who values privacy given that the UK, the most advanced big brother state, is also the biggest critic of such a project.
Medical records would be stored on the database also, as well as on an implantable chip that may be given to anyone considered to be mentally unstable. Under the new mental health act you can be sectioned for mild depression.
Take the recent case of Anna McHugh, who visited her GP after a failed intensive cycle of IVF treatment. She admitted that she was a little depressed and needed some help.
Four hours later she found herself admitted to St Pancras Hospital. Then, having admitted to the attending doctor that she had contemplated suicide, she was sectioned under Section 5.2 of the Mental Health Act and detained in a lock-down ward. When her husband tried to rescue her, she was held in a headlock while a doctor discussed her case with him.
In light of this and many other cases, is it so far fetched to imagine people being forcibly implanted with microchips under the mental health act?
The government doesn't seem to think so.
The paper also notes how Switzerland prescribes ###### rather than the substitute methadone to addicts and prisoners in Texas are forced to wear pink T-shirts to make them look gay.
Blair will be proud to see these things and more associated with his legacy in Britain.
