Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard special forces participate in
military maneuvers near the Gulf Sea


Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the United States' joint chiefs of staff, recently revealed that the US has prepared a plan of attack on Iran, once again reminding Tehran that "all options are on the table" and that the ”fury of US military might may soon descend upon Iran if it continues with its controversial nuclear program.

Has he and his advisers thought of the consequences? The US of A has screwed up in Iraq and Afghanistan, and how! Now Iran’s the next target. What would be the regional and global consequences of an American strike on Iran? Let’s be clear at the outset that Iran is no Iraq. It is a different ball game altogether.

It is clear that American plans for a military strike on Iran are “complete” and the attack is to be launched “any day”. What the Americans are planning is a major conventional war (with precision nuclear strikes to take out Iran’s underground nuclear assets) which will enable the US of A to destroy Iran’s military, political and economic infrastructure overnight.

The US army, navy, air force and marines have all prepared battle plans and spent five years building bases and training for "Operation Iranian Freedom". Computerized plans under the name TIRANNT (Theatre Iran Near Term) are in place. Post 9/11, the US navy can put six carriers into battle at less than a month's notice.

Two carriers in the region could quickly be joined by three more now at sea. These could most likely be the USS Ronald Reagan, USS Harry S Truman and USS Theodore Roosevelt, as well as by USS Nimitz. Each carrier force includes hundreds of cruise missiles carrying both conventional as well as tactical nuclear warheads.

So what happens if the US does go ahead and launches an assault in the coming months? The Pentagon has already identified 450 strategic targets, some of which are underground and would require the use of nuclear weapons to destroy. What happens then?

Outline Of Probable Attack Plan

Phase 1.

Launch a pre-emptive aerial strike targeting the main airfields and anti aircraft missile sites using long-distance B-52 bombers out of Guam, and carrier based cruise missiles.

Phase 2.

Achieve air supremacy and destroy residual potential for interference, for unhindered deployment for air and ground resources. Neutralize any interference by Iranian Naval and ground forces in order to keep the Straits of Hormuz open by Carrier based naval task forces and Marines.

Special Forces along with regular army units inducted along vulnerable corridors on the Iran-Iraq border to prevent riposte by Iranian ground forces threatening American assets in Iraq.

Phase 3.

Target and destroy main nuclear facilities with precision-guided weapons (Carrier based cruise missiles) both conventional and nuclear (For taking out nuclear assets deep underground) as well as B-2A Stealth bombers armed with the nuclear B61-11 ‘Bunker Busters’. At the same time target and destroy all known military industrial complexes.

All phases would probably be completed by H Plus 24 hours. This is just an outline of the impending battle. The details have been kept out as it would require several pages.


Potential nuclear targets


A B-2A bomber releases a test version of the new nuclear
B61-11 gravity bomb over the Tonopah Test Range in Nevada.


Iran’s Probable Response And Consequences



Iran has acquired eighteen BM25 land-mobile missiles with launchers from North Korea,
which can strike targets in Europe. In the past, the BM25 has been produced in two models:
one with a range of 2,500 km and the second with a range of 3,500 km.


It is obvious that Iran would retaliate. Tehran had promised a crushing response to any US or Israeli attack, and while the country ironically doesn’t possess nuclear weapons to scare off attackers, it does have other options.

…….Continued from previous post


> Iran’s ground forces are estimated at 800,000 personnel, as well as long-range missiles that could hit Israel and possibly even Europe. More importantly, much of the world’s oil supply is transported through the Strait of Hormuz, a narrow stretch of ocean which Iran borders to the north. Iran would blockade the Straits of Hormuz with new, "state of the art" Russian anti-aircraft defenses as well as powerful Sunburn anti-ship missiles purchased from the Ukraine. Chinese anti-ship mines may already be in place, able to be activated from shore. Just a few missiles or gunboats could bring down vessels and block the Strait, thereby threatening the global oil supply and shooting energy prices into the stratosphere.

> An attack on Iran would also inflame tensions in the Middle East, especially provoking the Shiite Muslim populations, that largely run the governments of Iran and Iraq and are a potent force in Saudi Arabia.

> The far greater risk is that Iran would then retaliate against the hopelessly exposed Kuwaiti, Saudi, and Gulf States oil facilities. Iran has already warned Qatar, where the U.S. has CENTCOM, that its vast gas compression facilities would be targeted if it allows a U.S. attack.

> It would incite Iran's staunch ally, the Lebanese Hezbollah, sparking increased global terrorism. A Shiite rebellion in Iraq would further endanger US troops and push the country deeper into civil war.

> American citizens, businesses and American assets in many nations would be under threat of attack by militant Iranians and other Muslims. And this threat could last for months if not years.

> It would also tip the scales towards a new geopolitical balance, where the US of A finds itself shut out by Russia, Iran, and a host of Muslim countries.

> Russia and China have developed strong ties recently, both with each other and with Iran and would threaten the US economically where each holds large reserves of US dollars which can be dumped in favor of Euros.

> Yet another danger is that an attack on Iran could set off a global arms race - if the US flaunts the non-proliferation treaty and goes nuclear, there would be little incentive for other countries to abide by global disarmament agreements either.

> The most horrific impact of a US assault on Iran, of course, would be the potentially catastrophic number of casualties. The Oxford Research Group has predicted that at least 10,000 people would die and hundreds of thousands more would be maimed if the US bombed Iran’s nuclear sites, and that an attack on the Bushehr nuclear reactor could send a radioactive cloud over the Gulf with horrendous consequences. If the US uses nuclear weapons, such as earth-penetrating ‘bunker buster’ B61-11 bombs, radioactive fallout would become even more disastrous.

> Severe shock to the world economy causing foreigners to cut back on financing U.S. deficits, with a consequent sharp rise in U.S. interest rates. This would cause very severe repercussions to the whole U.S. economy and government spending.

> Apart from oil prices going through the roof, a war would greatly increase Russian power vis-à-vis Europe as the latter would become even more dependent upon Russian energy supplies. The dollar would collapse and the Euro would resurrect into a global trading currency.

In conclusion I would like to add that in a recent war game conducted by Brooking, the results showed that an attack on Iran would most likely backfire with disastrous consequences. But is anyone at the helm listening?

What an amazing post.... Thanks.

Well put together and well though out.

Now my 2 cents...... I see the name for the op "operation iranian freedom" and my stomach wants to hurl over my netbook.
If the USA kicks off with Iran then i will never ever shed a tear for any american killed in this war or in a backlash from this potential war....

America will deserve the rath of the aftermath of this. And personaly if it was to happen and Russia and China got involved i say "GOOD"!!!!!

China has recently a new missile which is capable of taking out US aircraft carriers from 5000km away. This is serious stuff - not even the Sunburner missile was this capable - nothing on the planet has ever been this capable - beyond nuclear attack - not feasible and still not accurate.

The fact is that all US aircraft carriers are now totally vulnerable - and subsequently totally obsolete has put America in an absolute hole.

Serious stuff - the US will either attack in the next month - or not at all -

Yea intresting and scary... By the way the range is 900 miles or 1500 KM.
Wont stop the blood thirsty PTB though. Wonder if it can hit TPTB in their own homes? would save money and lives

there are many threads on the subject but not to many well put together such as this one. this wont be another Iraq and will have a profound affect all around the globe. then you have the china/Russia factor, what will there stance be if an attack goes ahead on Iran? would this attack be reasonable cause for a draft? who would be involved in this, is it just U.S and israel or would it be a NATO operation? i come to this subject with more questions than answers.

So is there a spot in southwest China that is 900 miles or less from the Persian Gulf? If so, that would be a worrisome proposal.

Great post Orionhunterx. This is the most detailed study of an American attack on Iran I've seen. The implications for world-wide muslim counter-revolution are enormous. The middle east and southeast asia would be sent into years of revolt in an anti-western backlash. Russia would do quite well in this scenario as Europe would become dependant on Russian oil and gas. This would also give the Kremlin an excuse to exterminate Muslim states within their own sphere of influence. I think Putin would cry foul but take advantage of the situation.

Attacking Iran would be the straw that broke the back of America. Perhaps that is exactly why they would want to do it.

This is just idle speculation, but does anyone think that the real plan with regards the Middle-East isn't to "win" in Iraq or Afghanistan, just to further destabilise the region until it's all drawn into the conflict...

...and then there will be an ultimate victory, with the US/nato (note small letters) governing the region and ALL the natural resources.

Call me paranoid...

The way I understand it, the President doesn't poll the troops to make sure 100% of them are all on board before starting a war so place blame where blame is due.
2nd; if China and Russia got involved you can kiss your a** good by because it would end up being a global nuclear war.
3rd; This entire scenario will never happen unless Iran attacks 1st or if there is a false flag that 99% of the world believes to justify it.

Good post.

I really hope none of it happens as I simply do not think the western countries can handle another joint war - not thinking of the financial aspect of it, but of the human lives on both sides and the already strained relations between them.

I like how the quote from Admiral Mike Mullen :



(the) fury of US military might may soon descend upon Iran if it continues with its controversial nuclear program


Could easily be construed as the same type of rhetoric used by the so called "enemies" of the US :



(the) fury of Iran's Revolutionary Guard might may soon descend upon the Infidels of the West if it continues with its controversial sanctions and oppression of the Iranian people

If this really happens, we'll see how elite they really are. I'm guessing they're not much better than the Iraqi elite guard, and again it will be an unofficial insurgency rather than the official troops that cause the most problems.

This is beyond maddening, to have a war of this magnitude today will result with the gravest of consequences... By the time this war is over 50 years down the road, I think it would be only logical to assume that somewhere in excess of 80 to 90 percent of the worlds populace will be gone.

I fail to see how the US can even contemplate such a monsterously stupid action.

Sounds like exactly what they want. The masters, that is. After all, nothing will ever affect them. Half the world could burn, and they would be safe.

This is a funny thread. What's even more funny is watching everyone get their panties in a bunch over it all.

Everyone does realise that this is nothing more than fiction, right?. It's something OrionHunterX drew up in his free time and it's not really based on any sort of US military warplans.

Does anyone have an actual news source for that quote by Mullen?

Iran has a real army, supplied by Russia, China, and others.
During the Iran Iraq war, The U.S had to step in and aid Iraq because they were being destroyed.
If the U.S attacks Iran, it will be no afghanistan or Iraq.
It would be a real war.

Yeah . . . Iran can't beat Iraqis using American equipment, how will they beat Americans using American equipment.

And all of the haters propped up Iraq's elite stormtroopers, and look how that turned out.

Very well done post OP. S&F for you. It appears obvious to me that a war with Iran is eminent. My only question is what will be the catalyst? A false flag terror event that would have to be significant, as another poster said? Perhaps a false flag event in Israel? For the "porn star" poster that said it will never happen, stick your head back in the sand before reality catches up to you.
There is obviously a world agenda here as far as a one world government goes and I hate to say it again but, Ordo ab Chaos. This has to happen so that the masses will accept whatever is offered to them regardless of it's impact on personal liberty. Explore the idea of thesis, anti-thesis and synthesis. There is really something to this and it is becoming all too clear. Interesting times ahead.

Ofcourse America has the ability to destroy Iran quite easily, but this will be no afghanistan or iraq, this would cause heavy loses for both sides and would be a disaster economically, and certainly won't be over soon.
