Is everyone missing the part where he said 'executable if necessary'?
Of course they have a strategy ready. They probably have one for every country, but just cause he is talking about it doesn't mean they are putting it into action.

I don't like it either, but let's not panic yet.

Exactly - I just read the article and nowhere does it state that the US is preparing!!!! They are always prepared - it would be a stupid Country that wouldn't be prepared.

False Alarm as far as I'm concerned.

OK, WARMONGERS,

Go and kill yet more innocent people.

When will you ever learn.

A message to warmongers - you will never go to Jesus, or Buddha - you will go straight to the devil.

edition.cnn.com...

Behind the scenes Dempsey is quietly leading the ongoing military planning for an attack against Iran's nuclear weapons in the event the president gives the order to do so.

Also there seems to be alot of military build up in Kuwait. Troops from Iraq. I Hope this does not happen. But nothing surprises me anymore this year.

Not this ``argument`` again... Yeah they have plans for every country, but they do not update them every week/month. I doubt they even update the unlikely plans (almost all of them) every 10 years. When you ``prepare for an Iran war`` that means you put the plans up to date and keep them open, adding new info... that means a war is imminent... why? Because you have to gather intelligence and it costs MONEY to have intelligence up to date on the ground.

And since Obama is probably gonna lose the election, he might go October surprise on us and start a war with Iran.

I use to fly on an ABNCP that could launch nukes. Trust me we are always ready and with backups.

First of all it the fact that they update their plans does NOT make war eminent!
Second, yes this argument again, upon reading your thread title and your op it cam off as a FACT that they were going to war.

Like I said I am not thrilled about it either, and I certainly don't want this to come to pass, just saying to relax a bit.
All countries I am sure update their battle strategies when new intel becomes available.

Your op comments come off just like todays Media, false statements and fear mongering and what not. Geez, they didn't even make it sound as bad as you did.

Fixed the OP...

But really, the US is already at war with Iran... has been since 2007.

Bush Authorizes New Covert Action Against Iran

Only question of time before it becomes ``official`` for the general public.

Ok, I can totally agree with that. But they aren't going to battle just yet. ~Phew~
Let's just keep vigilant and see what happens.
I seen the first post and I almost grabbed my go bag and ran out the door!

Okay, hold the phone. I cannot find anything saying what your title claims. The only thing I could corroborate is the fact that the US is considering its options and drafting multiple strategic and tactical plans. By saying that the US is "preparing" for an attack on Iran, it makes it sound like it is imminent.

This is not the case, as there are still many questions that have been unresolved amidst the tensions, and no one, except maybe Israel, is going to attack Iran at this moment in time. So while the US is preparing for an attack on Iran, they are NOT preparing to attack Iran. Make sense?

It is standard practice to develop military plans for a variety of situations, and many of them do not get used. Unless there is a story I am missing somewhere, all I could find was Panetta saying that the US was looking at its options.

It has also been said that Israel probably would not tell the US if it were going to attack Iran, and that is something I have been thinking for a while now. Why would they? So they US could maybe talk them out of it? No way, Israel would LOVE to strike Iran, because the US would HAVE to back them up...

The last time Iran trained for a real war, even the women learned how to shoot. They have an army, and could throw together an even larger one if facing invasion. They also have some some decent toys, although I do not know of their AA capabilities, which will make a big difference.

IF and when they do decide to throw down, I think it won't be nearly as easy as Iraq and Afghanistan.
Iran will give them a run for their money I think. As you said, facing invasion, they will pull many people into the ranks to defend themselves.

They could add as many people as they want, wouldn't do them much good. They are using outdated weapons and Armorer. It would only be just a matter of time.

The U.S would just do a very extended bombing run, guided missiles, JDATS, the whole works. Than the ground invasion would happen. Since this would be a war with a standing military, not a very good one I might add. The U.S would stomp them in a matter of weeks. I'm also airing on the side of caution my own estimate would be hours at most days.

Iran's military sucks, that is just fact. I love how people like to root for the underdog but Its going to be a blood bath on Iran. I don't want to see this happen any more than the next guy. Having spent quite a few years in the Army my self, I know its capable of.

From Reading and watching Iran's military it won't end well for them. They know this, That is why they talk big but will cower if they ever thought a war might happen.

If "militias" are so well organized and truly want to protect their beliefs, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution - an American Spring would have risen after the passage of NDAA!!! I am confident that the Arab Spring came up when OWS sprung out globablly and the gov't became nervous about what is to come . It is apparent that their closed door agendas will "spring" possibly in 2 months since that is how long the gov't has extended the budget. The gov't has realized that Americans are fed up and needed to ensure that what ever actions they are planning they could carry out.

The only way out of a great depression/globalfinancial collapse (from what we know other than QE) Is to go to war.

One thing is for sure. The US is trying everything to evoke Iran in to conflict. Covert attacks, drones flying over the country, asasanations. That first bullet fired from Iran that will be heard around the world could come anyday.
And to that person that said the US would destroy Iran. Well by doing that, America will destroy itself. The world is waking up fast to its Imperial ways. Karma is a bitch.

You seem in a bit of a fantasy here - Iran is much larger than Iraq or Afghanistan, with a much larger population, and a fanatical religious bas that it can rely on and borders with the Caucasus and central asian states

I wouldn't be thinking that what worked in its neighbours will work there - the terrain is rugged, there are multiple resupply routes, the whole population will be hostile and probably willing to fight and die as martyrs - there's little religious schism there, and there isn't a nice road up the river to the capital.......

This is why we need to get Ron Paul in the oval office! When he gets the nomination he can win even if we are in the middle of the Iran war! This makes my blood boil
