Very interesting but I don’t believe what you have been told, I think the first part is feasible about the Al’Qa’ida bomb test in Loch Lomond
however I think if it was conducted by terrorists then the government would have made a big deal out of it. Unless it was part of your faslane
conspiracy and unfortunately I am pretty certain that didn’t happen.
Faslane is highly defended but the ministry of defence police and not by soldiers as your thread claims. This shows a inherent inaccuracy in your op
that starts to cast questions of the reliability of your source, it would be 7 police officers killed rather than 7 soldiers killed as its the police
that defend the base and are responsible for the defence of the domestic nuclear arsenal and defence of domestic bases on main the main land. The
Ministry of Defence Police (MDP) is a bit like the UK’s secret special operations police force, one of their key responsibilities is the protection
of the country’s nuclear deterrent. Al’Qa’ida would have quite a fight on their hands first of all they would have to fight through the MDP,
who have SAS training, in fact they help assist in training the SAS at times. Every one of these police officers carries firearms, and they have
specialist rapid response units and a massive marine unit all poised to respond to a attack against a nuclear facility.
Assuming Al’Qa’ida have got through the forces of the MDP they still have the trained soldiers inside the base to contend with. By now the alarm
will have been raised, more MDP will probably already be on the scene along with the extra police form Strathclyde police but in addition to this the
MoD will have mobilised the SAS and probably the SBS to Scotland to deal with the threat. By now the base is going to be “locked down” so to
Even if they have by some miracle all survived this far now Al’Qa’ida have to get their hand on the nukes and let’s face it they are not going
to be lying around they are locked away and hard to get to. If that isn’t bad enough a trident missile is not a small nuke, they are big and heavy
so how do they get them out. well they don’t, if they try the forces outside the base are just going to kill them on the spot so they are going to
have to take the nuclear weapons appear and then steal the nuclear material. This means that Al’Qa’ida have to have a individual capable of
performing such a task and I highly doubt they have a nuclear weapons tech but hey let’s keep going with it. oh and your friend should also know
that Faslane does not actually store nuclear weapons but let’s assume it does just for fun......
It’s going to take some time to take the weapons apart and in the time COBRA is going to have been in meeting. By now they know the terrorists have
got inside the base and taken control of its inner sanctum were the nuclear weapons are housed. COBRA are probably aware that the terrorists by now
know with the time it has taken them to get this far that the police have regrouped, probably with military assistance and they have no way out. Their
only hope is to deconstruct the nuclear weapons and use the radioactive material to construct a dirty bomb, the COBRA are going to know about this.
With this in mind COBRA are going to authorise Gold Command on the ground to fully hand over to the military soon as the SF units turn up they are
going to storm the place before the terrorists have a chance to create a weapon or they will just send in anyone if the SF are not going to make it in
time, probably 42 commando. In the end all the terrorists die and we have a massive press story.
So let’s look at some other problems with your friend’s story.
Well aside from the massive problem that the entire operation would have been impossible, as I said no nukes stored in faslane so the idea they would
have stole nukes is right way proven to be rubbish, and the entire premise of this thread is gone. Also how does he know it was Al’Qa’ida why not
say Irish republican groups or even a hostile government he could never have known it was Al’Qa’ida.
The media would have a field day as well if they found out about this, the SNP would love it because it would be the biggest boost to their
independence campaigned they are ever going to get.
I could go on all day with this, with the massive inaccuracies in the tread I doubt your friend who stays in the peace camp told you about this. If he
stayed in the peace camp he would have at least made it sound remotely believable and have known some basic things like no nukes at faslane and
mentioned the MDP.
I can only conclude that you have made this up
The question now is why?
Oh and that is the other side of the coin btw.
