“Hostile” Iran Sparks U.S. Attack Plan

(CBS) A second American aircraft carrier steamed into the Persian Gulf Tuesday as the Pentagon ordered military commanders to develop new options for attacking Iran.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mike Mullen has warned Iran not to assume the U.S. military can’t strike. “I have reserve capability, in particular our Navy and our Air Force so it would be a mistake to think that we are out of combat capability,” Mullen said.

Later this week Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is expected to confront the Iranians with evidence of their meddling and demand a halt.

the State Department has begun drafting an ultimatum that would tell the Iranians to knock it off – or else.

  1. To coin an old phrase, ‘wheres the beef’ ? so far they still haven’t shown any proof that Iran is behind these “special groups” etc, i suppose they think everyone just has to take them at their word ? .

    It’s pretty obvious that last years NIE put pay to them using the nuclear excuse to bomb Iran, so they’re now going big on the ‘Iran destabilizing Iraq’ myth, it’s pretty transparent that they’re making most of this shit up.

    Paul Craig Roberts has a new article up, pretty good read
