Iran: A Scenario And A timeline


I first read this article in the middle of the night, always a scary time, and then followed by this: US Navy steps up fuel deliveries to Gulf forces, which didn't do much to dispel any concerns.

Nor I might add does the fact that the Bush administration along with the nation has in the eyes of the world, and in truth, gone rogue.

A plan to attack Iran swiftly and from above.

bunker-busting bombs slicing through concrete at more than a dozen nuclear sites across Iran is no longer just the idle musing of military planners and uber-hawks.

Although air strikes don't seem imminent as the U.S.-Iranian drama unfolds, planning for a bombing campaign and preparing for the geopolitical blowback has preoccupied military and political councils for months.

No one is predicting a full-blown ground war with Iran. The likeliest scenario, a blistering air war that could last as little as one night or as long as two weeks, would be designed to avoid the quagmire of invasion and regime change that now characterizes Iraq. But skepticism remains about whether any amount of bombing can substantially delay Iran's entry into the nuclear-weapons club.more

Systematic takeover of the Middle East by American religious fanatics under the guise of patriotism. Cute. HH
