According to an article in the Times of London (this article is not likely to be withdrawn)
THE Pentagon has drawn up plans for massive airstrikes against 1,200 targets in
, designed to annihilate the Iranians’ military capability in three days, according to a national security expert. Iran
Alexis Debat, director of terrorism and national security at the
Nixon Center, said last week that US military planners were not preparing for “pinprick strikes” against ’s nuclear facilities. “They’re about taking out the entire Iranian military,” he said. Iran
Since President Bush has already asserted that the actions of Iran are threatening our troops in Iraq he need not give any more advance notice or justification than he already has before the bombing starts. Since a massive and sudden bombing campaign is being planned this raises the possibility that the 1200 sites in Iran will be bombed before the American public is officially informed that military action will be taken.
In other words, to stop this we would need to take action before there is conclusive proof that an attack is planned, likely or even possible.
