Gordon Duff: Was Syria 'nuked'?
File photo shows damage caused by an Israeli airstrike near Damascus on May 5, 2013. Analysis shows Syria came under attack by Israel using, not just nuclear weapons, but an American nuclear bunker buster bomb, one of several supplied to Israel to use against Iran, one of the last acts of the Bush Cheney administration. Striking evidence of the use of American EPW, Earth Penetrating Weapons, nuclear weapons in Syria has come to light. Experts say the proof is irrefutable. Dramatic video footage from Syria has revealed startling evidence that counters Israel's claims of surgical strikes on weapons headed to Lebanon. What were said to be air strikes, is now proven to have actually been artillery, something easily discernible to even an untrained observer. What happens next is shocking. While artillery shells rain down on Syrian army positions, mobile Israeli artillery in direct support and even accompanying rebel forces inside Syria, a huge explosion occurs. After analysis, it had become clear, Syria had come under attack by Israel using, not just nuclear weapons, but an American nuclear bunker buster bomb, one of several supplied to Israel to use against Iran, one of the last acts of the Bush Cheney administration. Submitted for analysis, the footage was compared with tests of the 37,000 pound MOP Massive Ordnance Penetrator, designed by Boeing to be uses against Iran's underground facilities. There was no similarity whatsoever noted between the Syrian event, and a conventional bunker buster including the GBU 57, the largest conventional weapon every to be used. Colonel James Hanke, former Defense Attache and Liaison between the Pentagon and Netanyahu's government, reviewed the footage. He indicated that the GBU 57 is considered too high a risk for use, because of its danger to the earth's crust. The Syrian African fault line spreads into Israel. Were it to be subjected to this kind of explosive power, the threat of an earthquake doing significant damage to Israel is a reality. The nuclear bunker busters have far less penetrating power and, I am not saying that this was a nuclear device, not until more evidence is in, but the event profile shows striking similarities. The other problem with the GBU 57 is delivery. Only two aircraft are capable of delivering this weapon, the B-52 and the B-2 Stealth Bomber. Israel does not have these aircraft. Collapse of US Air Force Command Structure: Again Thus, if a MOP where used, it could have only been delivered by the United States Air Force, an organization reeling from recent disasters within its own ranks after a second lapse in nuclear weapons security in a five year period was discovered at Minot Air Force Base in South Dakota.
