U.S. PLANS ATTACK ON IRAN
This article belongs to column.
The U.S. is currently in the planning and implementation phases for an attack on Iran on or about April 7.
The attack would involve four carrier groups, a U.S. Marines attack group, Special Forces groups, cruise missiles and long-range strike aircraft. Two carrier groups have been practicing tactics in the Gulf area and off the coast of Oman and U.S. aircraft have been 'encountered' by aircraft from countries within that region. The planned attack would involve a limited Marines strike attack on coastal regions of Iran as to allegedly avoid sinking of ships in the Strait of Hormuz. Patriot missile batteries have also been dispatched so as to avoid missile attacks on U.S. troops.
While an attack on Iran would highly likely have very limited success, the longer-term implications would be substantial. Apart from having the capacity to disrupt oil shipping throughout the Gulf region, Iran would without any doubt, indirectly strike at U.S. and allied forces in Iraq and would without any doubt assist friendly forces throughout the Middle East including Lebanon and Palestine.
It is also known that the Gulf States are extremely unhappy with the current build-up off their coast, and self-defence action by these States cannot be ruled out should either Iran or the U.S. be stupid enough to breach territorial airspace or coastal territorial waters. An attack on Iran would also totally destroy U.S. influence and credibility throughout the region, having the long-term implication that would eventually see a total U.S. exit from the Middle East.
In terms of the date or dates involved, it is now known that Israel, Australia, the U.K. and other allies have been briefed. We shall see if the U.S. regime will be stupid enough to proceed with this plan.
