All in this PDF.
Former General presentation on Iran to congress

Lots of interesting stuff in there...

On Page 5 :

Iran and oil - What's At Stake :

50% of China's oil imports and 75% of Japanese imports travel through Strait of Hormuz

And now you know why China doesn't want war... and Japan didn't want much sanctions... because it would hurt a whole lot if it turns hot.

On Page 6 :

Iran military capacity 2012

Ground forces : a joke.
Naval forces :

Bottom line : This naval force can close the Gulf. They could sink a US carrier in the Gulf narrow waterways.


On Page 7 :
Air force : Could deal serious economic damage to Gulf states (oil infrastructure) in the opening days but would be wiped out in 30 days.
Air defense : Nothing major. S-300s and Tor-M1 would be priority. (with B-2s no problems)
Special ops : Hezbollah, Hamas, Al-Qods and Iranian revolutionary corps...
Missiles : Chemical weapons. Might have biological weapons. 300-400 Shahab-3 missiles they can launch at Israel. (how many will make it there.. who knows) Will have a dozen nukes within 5 years. (riiiiight)

On Page 8 :

US Global Naval and Air Power :

Bottom line : Capable of destroying Iranian air and naval power and nuclear facitilies in a six month campaign


On Page 9 :

Israeli Defense Forces

Most modern, trained, lethal force in the Middle East.

150-400 nuclear and thermonuclear weapons.

Kind of funny that the General admits that Israel has nukes...

On Page 10 :

The Gulf Confrontation : Conclusions

- Iran will have a dozen nukes with means to deliver to them to Israel, Gulf states and US troops in the region within 5 years.
- Iran can shut the Strait of Hormuz and strike Gulf states oil facilities.
- The US could destroy Iran nuclear facilities and naval power but it would take several months and would need Gulf states support, which we do have.
- US sanctions might cause the Iranian regime to implode.
- Iran will not abandon their nuclear program at any cost.

The Israelis lack any credible conventional military power to counter the Iranian nuclear threat. Their forced option would be pre-emptive nuclear strike

Oh I got it... we've got to attack Iran... or Israel will nuke Iran... is that right?

There is a significant chance of Iranian miscalculation resulting in major military confrontation in the Gulf in the coming 12 months.

Here comes the false-flag.

Lethal force? Only if the enemy is 12 yrs or younger and not armed with rocks.

The old boy must be going senile if the Israelis are such a lethal force then why the preemptive nuke strike?

Because if Iran were to have nukes, Israel would need to cover lots of area very fast to avoid a ``payback nuclear strike`` against Israel. And you can only do that with nukes.

I dare say this out loud, if any nation uses nuclear or limited nuclear warheads on any nation i seriously and i stress seriously fear the reprisal attack on that nation from the cyber world will be far worse than what was used (nuke). The cyber reprisal will literally cripple the nation to the same level as a nuclear attack. It will infact isolate the nation from the net inorder to defend itself from incoming digital carpet bombing. Given what i have typed has been mentioned by more than one alpha group within various news corporations and given this is the only way that it can sustain its viability within a frame work then this is what most people have feared. Its simply called internet restriction and digital identification. What you surf, how you surf, what you type, when you type will all be filtered through, analyzed and then forwarded. It can actually reach a point that any form of encryption within that isolated nation could brand you as a domestic terrorist. Sounds terrifying...absolutely, sounds plausible,...100%
