Afshin Rattansi is a journalist, author of “The Dream of the Decade – the London Novels” and an RT Contributor. Afshin Rattansi began his journalism career on The (London) Guardian in the late 1980s as one of the newspaper’s youngest ever columnists. He went on to work for Britain’s Channel 4, making ground-breaking primetime politics and culture documentary strands, covering the fall of the Berlin Wall with former BBC journalist Tim Sebastian in 1989. He worked and lived in Venezuela and Cuba in the early 1990s before spending two years analyzing political and environmental risk for Lloyd’s of London after the crash of its global insurance market. He went on to work at the BBC Economics Unit and BBC Breakfast News before leaving to launch the Dubai Business Channel in the U.A.E. as the network’s Business Editor. In 2002, he returned to London to work for the BBC’s flagship Today show and left after the death of British scientist David Kelly in the run-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq. As the first English-language TV journalist on Al Jazeera Arabic, he worked on the strand “Top Secret” which identified the masterminds behind the 9/11 attacks on Washington and New York before their capture by US Authorities. Then after working as an editor at CNN International and a senior editor at Bloomberg Television in the run-up to the Lehman Brothers crash of 2008, he published a collection of four of his novels as “The Dream of the Decade – The London Novels.” As US pressure increased on Iran, Afshin moved to Tehran to anchor the news on the new satellite TV channel, Press TV which was later banned in Britain. He set up Alternate Reality Productions in London in 2010 making Double Standards, a comedy satire show as well as other TV news commissions. His writing has also appeared in the New Statesman; Counterpunch; The Oldie; Plays and Players; Mitchell Beazley’s Encyclopaedia of 21st Century; The Journal of the British Astronomical Association; Association of Lloyd's Members Journal; Critical Quarterly; Makers of Modern Culture (Routledge, 2007); “Brought To Book” (Penguin, 1994); Flaunt; Attitude. He is a founder member of the Frontline Club in London and he won the Sony Award for outstanding contribution to international media in 2002.

the author of the article looks credible
Yeah, an Iranian who used to work for PressTV. Yeah, he's a great source.....

Guy's a master propagandist. Bombing Iran all the way from Chittagong! Sheesh.....these guys have been consuming too much anti-American dope, and putting the blame on us :cheesy:

Mr. Rattansi, prepare to be horrified:
F-22s Parked Less Than Six-Minute Flight from Iran

Ever seen a Raptor 'up-close' :lol:

You can now write up some crap about UAE now.

A sad day for BD when/if this happens.
It'd cause China and India to **** bricks too.

But it ain't happening. The US ambassador to BD already debunked it:

It's technically not possible for the entire 7th fleet to be based in BD.

Even the support ships of the fleet cannot be based in BD; forget about the Fleet itself!!

The Indians will start trolling the Americans too! Maybe even the Iranians as in the case of the fool who wrote that crap.

Another thing: Chittagong and Cox's Bazar are strongholds for Islamists. So no way is it feasible.

LOL Excellent!

So Bangladesh will turn into the latest Strategic Ally of US for War on China. Doesn't it remind me of our neighbor in the West. But this should make our Jamati firends very happy. They will definitely love the company of Taliban who will get attracted in droves towards the new strategic ally :omghaha:

I am not sure OBAMA wants to move 7th Fleet to the World's most flood Prone area. But then again nobody has accused Mr. OBAMA of being extremely bright. He has made Foolish decisions before.
