Crossfire War – Washington – London – Canberra Watch – Persian Gulf Theatre: Russian Intelligence Reports US Strike on Iran in Early April – Operation Bite

The RIA news announcement is largely a follow up to the report on crossfirewar.com just a few days ago on the U.S. Armed Forces build up near Iran’s border and in the Persian Gulf, a buildup that began in December last year with the arrival of carrier battle groups. A Russian intelligence source is now stating, “Russian intelligence has information that the U.S. Armed Forces stationed in the Persian Gulf have nearly completed preparations for a missile strike against Iranian territory.” The new carrier group heading for the Gulf is led by the USS John C. Stennis with a crew of 3,200, eighty fixed wing aircraft, F/A- 18 Hornet and Superhornet fighter bombers, eight support ships and four nuclear submarines. The carrier group led by the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower has been in the Gulf since December.
The Vice – President of Russia’s Academy of Geo-Political Sciences, Colonel – General Leonid Ivashov stated, “I have no doubt there will be an operation or rather an aggressive action against Iran.” Codenamed Operation Bite.

They all want to see the West have less influence in the affairs of West Asia (Middle East).
