The incredible discovery could rewrite history!

A group of divers found the wreckage of the liner "Lusitania" sunk off the coast of Ireland, 7 May 1915 by a German submarine, secretly remitting load ammunition. One of the largest at the time - along with the Titanic - passenger ships of 1931 tons was torpedoed by a German submarine U-20 and went to the bottom in just 18 minutes. Killed 1,198 people, including 139 Americans.
That attack triggered sharp protests in the world and became a reason for U.S. entry into World War. Germany has accused the owners of "Lusitania" in a secret shipment of arms from the U.S. to Europe on the Western Front. UK government and the U.S. denied this version, saying that the ship there were only civilians. Finding the wreck of ammunition, including bullets, "Remington", used by the British at the front, and revives the old controversy over the sinking of the vessel, which is considered one of the biggest war crime in history, said today the newspaper Sunday Express.
Investigation of the vessel, resting at a depth of just over 100 meters in 12 kilometers to the south coast of Ireland, conducted with the permission of the Government. "What we found - as one of the divers said Tim Carey - leaves no doubt that the" Lusitania "delivers ammunition from the U.S. European allied forces."
According to the expert the London Imperial War Museum Nick Hewitt, the sinking of "Lusitania" was "one of the most tragic events, milestones in the First World War, and it is considered by many, especially Americans, as a planned murder." "Today's discovery - an important historical record," - says Hewitt.
