from 21st Century Wire:

After escalating tensions in the region by attacking facilities and leaders from both Iraq and Iran, war hawks in Washington DC are now doubling-down on their World War III rhetoric by deploying six nuclear-enabled long-range B52 bombers to the contested British territorial island of Diego Garcia located in the Indian Ocean.

This latest deployment comes on the heals of two other recent B52 wing deployments, firstly beginning in 2016, when the Pentagon sent six bombers to Qatar near Iran, and also this past November 2019 when the US moved another wing of B52’s to the Mediterranean island of Crete, and quickly proceeded to use one of these aircraft to provoke the Russian air force in Syria.
