Was listening to the BBC last evening when a US military advisor on BBC Radio 2 stated that, "We already have Spec-Ops agents on the ground in Iran, though I am unwilling to state where or in what numbers."
It seems that this little nugget of info could be the first 'official' admittance of any US / UN military action against the Shah.
Any confirmation of a special operation is, by definition, unofficial
Those U.S SpecOps are probably in Iran to infiltrate the Shah's ranks
News flash Iran does not have a Shah anymore
Iran is rulled by Moslem Arabs simple as that
Down with the Shah, Down with the Shah, Down with the Shah
IRAN’S president, Mohammad Khatami, declared yesterday that the United States had too many problems in Iraq to be able to launch a "lunatic" attack on his country.
But he warned that plans were in place should the US make any aggressive moves.
The remarks, made in an interview with Iran’s state-run radio, marked the most senior response yet to reports indicating the US may be considering military action against Iran.
"The possibility of a US attack against Iran is very low. We think America is not in a position to take a lunatic action of attacking Iran," Mr Khatami said.
Iran did not welcome the tension with the US, he said, but it was ready to defend itself if attacked. "The US is deeply engaged in Iraq. We move forward with full vigilance. We don’t welcome any tension but if, God forbid, it commits an act of aggression, we have prepared ourselves. We have plans for it."

Your venomous statement after your assertion of what is portrayed as an "act of war" speaks greatly about you and your character, let alone, speaks for itself.
