Must read of the day: The war vs Iran

There are several stories involving the US and possible war with Iran, so I am going to use this post to touch on all of them, and offer the links for readers to look further.

1st

Joe Lieberman (D-CT) says the US should weigh Iran attack

Sen Lieberman stated that because of Iran’s involvement in Iraq, that we should seriously look into the possibility of attack.

I think we’ve got to be prepared to take aggressive military action against the Iranians to stop them from killing Americans in Iraq,” Lieberman said. “And to me, that would include a strike over the border into Iran, where we have good evidence that they have a base at which they are training these people coming back into Iraq to kill our soldiers.”

Lieberman said much of the action could probably be done by air, although he would leave the strategy to the generals in charge. “I want to make clear I’m not talking about a massive ground invasion of Iran,” Lieberman said.

2nd

The plan for attack is already in place

Predictions within the US military are that Bush will do what is needed to stop Teheran before he leaves office in 2009, including possibly launching a military strike against its nuclear facilities

According to a high-ranking American military officer, the US Navy and Air Force would play the primary roles in any military action taken against Iran. One idea under consideration is a naval blockade designed to cut off Iran’s oil exports.

3rd

Pentagon is behind the attack of Iran

The U.S. officer told the Post Iranian nukes may not even be the most dangerous threat to Israel and the Western world. The officer cited the possibility that a terrorist cell could attack the West with a highly radioactive “dirty bomb” or a vial of deadly chemical or biological agents.

4th

US and Israeli Military begin joint exercises

American and Israeli air forces on Sunday began week-long joint exercises in southern Israel, simulating dog-fights and bombing targets on the ground, the army said.

Now, they are saying these were planned years ago, but it seems awfully coincidental.

  2. Rude with annoyance? why?

    A democrat that is for the war in Iraq who wants to take a look at Iran
