MI5: Iran and Al Qaeda Planning an attack on “a par with Hiroshima and Nagasaki”

Intelligence report says UK may be target of a huge attack this Summer

An MI5 intelligence report leaked to the media earlier this month has revealed that the British security services fear that a major attack on Western targets may be carried out by Al Qaeda leaders with supporters in Iran.
Spy chiefs warn that one operative had said he was planning an attack on “a par with Hiroshima and Nagasaki” in an attempt to “shake the Roman throne”, a reference to the West, The London Times reports.
The report also states that although there is no proof that the Iranian government has any times with Al Qaeda whatsoever, leaders there may be "turning a blind eye" to terrorist networks.
Just as there was no connection or affiliation between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda, despite the continued preposterous claim that there was by Dick Cheney, there is no connection between the regime of President Mah-moud Ahmadinejad and Al Qaeda. In fact it is even more unlikely there ever would be an affiliation as the reigning leaders in Iran are Shi'ite where as Al Qaeda is a Sunni group.
Indeed, Al Qaeda affiliated right wing terror groups in Iran are very much against the Ahmadinejad government and are routinely carrying out attacks aimed at Iranian soldiers and state figures.
Pakistani Intelligence and Iranian officials have even gone as far as asserting that such groups are operating under the auspices of US intelligence . What would Iran have to gain from working with such groups or turning a blind eye to them as they continue to target the leadership there?
The report continues: “Recent reporting has described AQI's Kurdish network in Iran planning what we believe may be a large-scale attack against a western target.
“A member of this network is reportedly involved in an operation which he believes requires AQ Core authorisation. He claims the operation will be on ‘a par with Hiroshima and Naga-saki' and will ‘shake the Roman throne'. We assess that this operation is most likely to be a large-scale, mass casualty attack against the West.”
The report says there is “no indication” this attack would specifically target Britain, “although we are aware that AQI . . . networks are active in the UK”.
Given the fact that Iran is years away from developing nuclear weapons capability and Al Qaeda, literally an invented term to group together loosely affiliated western intelligence assets in the middle east, can only dream of having such weapons, MI5 reassuringly states that the reference to Hiroshima and Naga-saki, where more than 200,000 people died in nuclear attacks on Japan at the end of the second world war, is unlikely to be a literal boast.
PHEW. Much more likely a scenario is a false flag nuclear or biological event which could be blamed on "Al Qaeda" and then in turn on Iran for "harbouring" extremists within its borders.
Just two months ago former National Security Advisor and founding member of the Trilateral Commission Zbigniew Brzezinski tacitly warned a Senate Foreign Relations Committee that an attack on Iran could be launched following such a staged provocation.
"If one is of the view that one is dealing with an implacable enemy that has to be removed, that course of action may under certain circumstances be appealing. I'm afraid that if this situation in Iraq continues to deteriorate, and if Iran is perceived as in some fashion involved or responsible, or a potential beneficiary, that temptation could arise," said Brzezinski.
Warnings of a false flag event to be pinned on Iran have also come from Presidential Candidate Ron Paul , former National Security Council Director for Iranian and Persian Gulf Affairs Hillary Mann , Former United Nations weapons inspector and Marine Scott Ritter , Former CIA analyst and Bush 41 staffer Ray McGovern and British Member of Parliament George Galloway ,
Should an attack occur within the U.S. as Brzezinski forecasted could happen, Dick Cheney's USSTRATCOM contingency plan calls for attacking Iran in the immediate aftermath of a 'second 9/11' - no matter who is behind it - which of course is going to be the cabal Dick Cheney fronts for itself and the same pack of murderers that are actively seeking to initiate global ethic cleansing and genocide to bring about world war three.
The questions raised and clear falsities exposed surrounding the recent incidents between Iran and Britain over the detention of fifteen sailors and the previous declaration that Iran is aiding insurgents in Iraq have not allowed the US or Britain enough opportunity or pretext to carry out the long touted objective of attacking and negating Iran's nuclear power sites.
Despite this, massed US and British forces in the Persian gulf show no sign of stepping down a gear and continue to engage in war gaming. Russian Colonel General Leonid Ivashov , among others, is still adamant that preparations to strike Iran's strategic facilities continue.
The Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC) - based at MI5's London headquarters believes that an attack may be scheduled to go ahead before Tony Blair leaves office. Given that Blair is expected to stand down within the next three weeks this makes it imminent.
