US military strike on Iran seen by April ’07

Arab Times (Kuwait) ^ | 14th Jan 2007 | Ahmed Al-Jarallah - Editor-in-Chief

KUWAIT CITY: Washington will launch a military strike on Iran before April 2007, say sources. The attack will be launched from the sea and Patriot missiles will guard all oil-producing countries in the region, they add. Recent statements emanating from the United States indicate the Bush administration’s new strategy for Iraq doesn’t include any proposal to make a compromise or negotiate with Syria or Iran. A reliable source said President Bush recently held a meeting with Vice President Dick Cheney, Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Secretary of State Dr Condoleezza Rice and other assistants in the White House where they discussed the plan to attack Iran in minute detail.

According to the source, Vice President Dick Cheney highlighted the threat posed by Iran to not only Saudi Arabia but the whole region. “Tehran is not playing politics. Iranian leaders are using their country’s religious influence to support the aggressive regime’s ambition to expand,” the source quoted Dick Cheney as saying. Indicating participants of the meeting agreed to impose restrictions on the ambitions of Iranian regime before April 2007 without exposing other countries in the region to any danger, the source said “they have chosen April as British Prime Minister Tony Blair has said it will be the last month in office for him. The United States has to take action against Iran and Syria before April 2007.”

Claiming the attack will be launched from the sea and not from any country in the region, he said “the US and its allies will target the oil installations and nuclear facilities of Iran ensuring there is no environmental catastrophe or after effects.” “Already the US has started sending its warships to the Gulf and the build-up will continue until Washington has the required number by the end of this month,” the source said. “US forces in Iraq and other countries in the region will be protected against any Iranian missile attack by an advanced Patriot missile system.”

He went on to say “although US Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Secretary of State Dr Condoleezza Rice suggested postponing the attack, President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney insisted on attacking Tehran without any negotiations based on the lesson they learnt in Iraq recently.” The Bush administration believes attacking Iran will create a new power balance in the region, calm down the situation in Iraq and pave the way for their democratic project, which had to be suspended due to the interference of Tehran and Damascus in Iraq, he continued. The attack on Iran will weaken the Syrian regime, which will eventually fade away, the source said.

The US Military cannot wrap things up in Iraq with a mere 26 million people living there, I fail to see how attacking another Muslim nation, one with over 70 million people will make things better for the United States of America, or the region in general.

And the only lesson the Bush White House has learned for Iraq is they do not know much about fighting and winning Wars.

As for Gates, the US Military and CIA do not get along, so Gates is going to have a very rough time at the DoD.
In my own opinion, I believe it would have been best, I would have liked to see a Retired General be tapped for the job, and there are plenty of good ones to pick from.... Powell, Franks, Schwarzkopf, Clark, and Zinni come to mind just off the top of my head.

I think this is the funniest bit in that smoldering pile of excrement, if I was a betting man I would say that the April deadline is the prelude to an April fools day prank.

Seriously is the navy going to sail into Tehran to pull down a ceremonial statue of the ayatollah or something because I am pretty sure that it will take more than the 21k extra troops in Iraq to sort Iran out.

So I really think we have found the only Arab in the region with a sense of humour.

Yeah Right!!!!!, We all saw the green house gas emissions from Desert Storm. Lets make them glow in the dark as well, just for something different, its not like the infrastructure is needed afterwards.

I’m with MontyB, the only other excuse is that the Iraqi Minister for Information has a new job working for Arab Times Online.
