Italian Cruise Ship Reported Torpedoed By Iranian Submarine
by THETOTALCOLLAPSE.COM on JANUARY 14, 2012

A “flash” message received in the Kremlin today from the Northern Fleet Command, whose Russian Navy flotilla is in the Mediterranean Sea after having just left their Syrian port of call, reports that the anti-submarine ship Admiral Chabanenko has detected the firing of a torpedo having the “unmistakable signature” of one fired from a kilo-class submarine near Isola del Giglio a popular vacation island about 18 miles off the Italian Tuscan coast.

Within 10 minutes from the detection of this torpedo being fired, this “flash” message continues, a distress call was received from a cruise ship nearing the port of Isola del Giglio Costa named Costa Concordia, and owned by owned by Genoa-based Costa Cruises, stating that it had been“attacked” and was in “immediate danger of capsizing.”

Reports from the London Telegraph about this attack state that the Costa Concordia’s passengers’ dinner was “interrupted by a loud boom around 8 pm local time” with an initial announcement claiming that the ship was suffering an electrical failure, ordering everyone onboard to don life-jackets, and appearing to confirm this “flash” message of it being an attack.

The Northern Fleet Command further states that after the initial distress call from Costa Concordia it was ordered by the US Naval Air Station Sigonella (located in Sicily and known as “The Hub of the Med”) to cease open broadcasts and, instead, use NATO encrypted communications only. [Note: Due to past attacks on cruise liners carrying international passengers, all Western ships of this type are required to carry NATO encrypted radios.]

Most disturbing about this “flash” message, however, is its stating that the only known submarine currently suspected to be in the Mediterranean Sea is one, or possibly two, possessing kilo-class torpedoes belong to the Islamic Republic of Iran Navy (IRIN).

Russian military analysts note that Iran has, indeed, previously stated its intentions to expand its naval forces reach into international waters with the Commander of Iran’s Navy Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari saying this past March they planned to expand their navy’s operational zone far beyond the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman.

Really??? Come on now....

You can see the source is Sorcha Faal just by how it's written.

Not to mention Iranian subs don't have the range.

It's total bunk.

Yeah, why not just say an Iranian Sub burst from the waters of Hormuz and flew into a low earth orbit releasing endangered penguins into the atmosphere...

My fear is that eventually one of these BS stories are going to stick, and that will be the catalyst for justification to start off a new war.

History repeats itself over and over and over.

Two of the lastest groups of Islamic Extremeist known as "Shallow Water" & "Sharp Rock" attacked a Cruise Ship near Italy today in a wonderous display of terror.

The White House will be having a press meeting at the top of the hour.

Yeah that seems plausible as they are reported (by Sorcha Faal?) to have developed some cutting edge tech lately.

Also could have been a case of C.S.H.I.T.
