Iran Preparing to Launch Global Terror War

Iran is preparing to launch a global terrorist offensive against the United States and Israel, including attacks inside the U.S. Read more.

Foreign Confidential™ analysts believe the scale and scope of these attacks, should they occur, will be unprecedented, possibly even surpassing the mega-attacks on New York and Washington by Al Qaeda (the Sunni Islamist terrorist group that Iran's Shiite regime supported before and after 9/11).  Not for nothing has Iran threatened to confront the U.S. in (or from) the Gulf of Mexico. Not for nothing has Iran test-fired cargo vessel-based ballistic missile launch systems. Not for nothing has Iran built up terrorist cells in Venezuela, acquired dual-use biotechnology from Cuba. Not for nothing is Iran defying the West and isolating itself by developing atomic arms--and ICBMs capable of carrying atomic warheads. Yet the appeasers still call for more diplomacy with the clerical fascist power. Perfidy!

Endnote: Iran might have already deployed a fleet of cargo ships capable of striking the U.S. homeland. The vessels could be carrying Russian-designed Scuds or Chinese Silkworm cruise missiles for easy launch from international waters. Some dry cargo ships can launch missiles from their holds; container ship can conceal missiles and launch mechanisms in innocent-looking shipping containers. Iran, as mentioned above, and North Korea have successfully test-fired Scuds from cargo ships;  and  the U.S. experimented with the technique in the early 1960s.

Seemingly civilian Iranian cargo ships could also be used for canister-launch of missiles, a technique that the Soviet Union developed during the Cold War. This involves placing a ballistic missile in a sealed tube and dropping it in the sea from the deck of a commercial vessel. The bottom of the tube, sealed off from the missile, is weighted with ballast to achieve a specific level of buoyancy to ensure that the nose of the missile points up just enough to barely break the sea’s surface. After an interval to allow the mother ship to move on--and maybe drop off other encapsulated missiles--the rockets could be remotely launched or fired by timers and guided to their targets by the ship's commercial GPS system.
