1985: Sacred Oil – Troops Are Assembling!

After weeks of mounting tension and sabre-rattling, troops are finally assembling for transport to the Persian Gulf.

According to Pentagon internal sources, Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger will announce DEFCON 2 within days.

Soviet General Secretary Andrei Gromyko, recently appointed after a military coup in Soviet Union, declared in a speech broadcasted by USSR state television that the American reaction to the unfolding events in Southwest Asia is “hysterical” and “a menace to the worldwide peace”.

More details on the operation can be found on the official 1985: Sacred Oil page.
