Operation “Joint Warrior” – Bombing Cape Wrath
As you read this another NATO war fleet has assembled off the North West coast of Sutherland. George Gunn writes: “There are 19 vessels – warships and submarines – from 10 countries participating and firing live ordinance at the lonely sea stack known as An Garbh Eilean, just off Cape Wrath. In addition there are 20 aircraft involved and 2000 military personnel on the ground throughout the West Highland seaboard. Operation “Joint Warrior” is a twice yearly NATO training exercise and a flexing for the world to see of military power. From October 22nd to November 2nd significant areas of the North West Highlands are off limits to civilians. The majority of people in Scotland are oblivious to the militarisation of their country.”
This is just part of the wider militarisation of Scotland that acts as a dumping ground for the British state.
