Washington - International Space Station monitoring programs have detected pesky Iranian submarines attempting to nuke Chevron's Gorgon and Wheatstone gas fields off the Western Australian coast.
Initial reports said the subs 'were camouflaged with China military symbols', prompting fears of an onslaught on US Pacific island bases such as Okinawa and Guam by Beijing's latest ballistic hardware.
But a terse communique from the White House this morning said 'that Sino hammer and sickle biz ain't foolin nobody' as President Obama prepared to announce the deployment of 1,000 Marines at the Darwin barracks and the expansion of US Navy use of bases in the Northern Territory capital and Perth, Western Australia.
Chevron is by far the biggest operator of offshore gas extraction and has just signed up huge Japanese contract for delivery of LNG.
Former Chevron board director General James Logan Jones Jr, a retired US Marine Corps general, was appointed President Obama's national Security Advisor between January 2009 and October 2010 during intensive ISS surveillance of oil and gas wrecking renegades targetting America.
His office had played what British security services called 'an absolute blinder' when issuing a statement early last year that
'the main US military presence in Australia is limited to a joint satellite tracking station at Pine Gap in the Northern Territory and a naval communication station in Western Australia'.
