The highest-ranking military officer in the US has confirmed the country has a plan to attack Iran - but it will not be put into action anytime soon.
Admiral Mike Mullen has confirmed there is a plan to attack Iran if needed
Admiral Mike Mullen, the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, said a plan does exist - although he thought a strike was probably a bad idea.
Such an attack would only be launched to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, he added.
The American officer has often warned that a military strike would have serious and unpredictable consequences across the Middle East.
However, he also said the risk of the country acquiring a nuclear weapon was unacceptable.

In modern warfare there is no defense strategy, that's called getting bombed and bunkering down. And that's how you lose a war.
In modern warfare the only defense is a strong offense. Everyone knows that.

All these countries already have nuke bombs; Iran says she is working only on peaceful nuclear technology for energy. The UN nuclear inspectors are watching them. Because Israel said so, we Americans have to follow orders from them and start another war for Israel. Perhaps start WW3!
America 10000 warheads and used them before!
Russia 10000 war heads
France 5000 warheads
China 10000 warheads
Britain 4000 warheads
Israel 600 warheads
India 500 warheads
Pakistan 500 warheads
N-Korea 400 warhead
South Africa has unknown numbers of warheads and more countries with practical nuke bombs.
Iran 00000 warheads! THE INTERESTING PART IS: after 40 years has not finished her 1st nuclear reactor to gain energy yet. WE ARE JUST WARMONGERS AND ATTACK COUNTRIES LIKE IRAQ BASED ON FALSE INFORMATION!
Terrorism, Oil, Mineral Rights, Drugs? I can tell you now there is something they aren't telling us

haha thank you. I was just putting together the payload-counts myself from peer-reviewed sources, glad I can stop half way.
Where are you getting your North Korean count from? I am genuinely curious. Thanks in advance.
