    Not for combating the rising water levels either.

    The schoolyard bomb display is heating up with stockpiles rising
    at the supposedly UK territory of Diego Garcia.

    "According to one report the Pentagon is moving hundreds of bunker-buster bombs to Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean. The latest version of the weapon, known as the Massive Ordnance Penetrator, is said to weigh 15 tonnes and be capable of burrowing through 200ft of reinforced concrete before exploding.

    In a warning to anyone planning a strike on Iranian nuclear targets, Mr Ahmadinejad told Iranians in a televised speech that their country was so strong “that no enemy will harbour evil thoughts about laying its hands on Iranian territory”. He said of US forces in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Gulf: “They have to leave our region. This is not a request. It is an order from the nations of the region.” From the Times

    Nothing "supposedly UK" about Diego Garcia. We stole the Chagos Islands. They are not ours, and they most certainly are not the USAs. They still belong to the dispossessed Chagos Islanders, who have suffered forced relocation.
