Iran shakes up guards, U.S. 'ships bombs'

Iran shakes up guards, U.S. 'ships bombs': "Amid growing concerns of renewed conflict in the Middle East, the Tehran regime has shaken up the leadership of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, putting a veteran general who operated in Lebanon with Hezbollah in command of its ground forces.
Meantime, in an indication that the Americans are also making preparatory moves, the Pentagon is reported to be shipping hundreds of 'bunker-buster' deep-penetration bombs to the Indian Ocean island of Diego Garcia.
The British-owned island, about 1,000 miles south of India, was used by U.S. forces to launch airstrikes against Iraq during the 1991 and 2003 wars in the Gulf."
