Iran war likely in 2 years

According to the paper it says that Bush's consultants say war with Iran is very possible as they predict that Iran will send in it's army into Iran to stop American troops and they also say Britain will be backing the USA. According to a website it says the Americans has a war ship on standby.

Yup, U.S. are currently in the process of mobilising further troops for the task of taking Iran. Prob going to happen sooner rather than later to. Look out for Iran being in the press more and more, until it reaches a peak an the US go in. But, I dont think we will be sent in somehow!

I remain completely unconvinced that anyone is going to war with Iran. The public in both the US and Britain will never swallow it. Wars are far too expensive in terms of life and finance and we already have two theatres on the go.

I can't remember the dates but isn't 2008 when George Bush's second term runs out? Does anyone seriously think that Iraq will be finished by then and that America will let him start another theatre as he leaves office?

The sabre-rattling against Korea has died down a bit recently hasn't it?

It has already started. The arrest of the Iranian diplomats last week was no coincidence. It is the first part in preparing the American public for the inevitable. Mass and coordinated demonisation of the Iranian regime has already started in earnest. It is expected to reach a peak in in the next six months.

Also expect the US to find a "smoking gun" linking the Iranians directly to either killing of GIs in Iraq or a plot to commit a terrible act in the American homeland.

Another route that is under consideration is to have Israel carry out a preemptive air strike on a nuclear reactor in Iran. Then the US will 'reluctantly' be drawn in to the war.

There is also another rumour (still under serious consideration) that the president might invoke executive power to "delay" the '08 elections because it might disrupt the war effort.

Don't ask how I know this and you shall be told no lies.

COULD BE LESS THAN TWO YEARS, according to some analysts.....

Mr Logic makes perfect sense, but below is a link to an important article in this week's Spectator magazine.

The whole thing is available on the link, but, in a nutshell, Douglas Davis argues that the Israelis are already considering the nuclear option to stop Iran from "mastering the fuel cycle" and producing nukes.

He suggests that: "within the next 12 months, the Americans or the Israelis, possibly both, are likely to launch military strikes aimed at crippling Iran's nuclear ambitions. Those strikes may come sooner, rather than later. And they will probably be nuclear".

All to do with the ability of neutron bombs, of which Israel has plenty, to bust even the bunkers that BLU-113s and their siblings cannot touch.

It's an interesting piece and well worth a read IMHO. It's quite long, which is why I haven't cut and pasted the whole thing here.

Seymour Hersh a.ka. "the Scourge of the chicken hawks" said this a while back.

The Bush Administration, while publicly advocating diplomacy in order to stop Iran from pursuing a nuclear weapon, has increased clandestine activities inside Iran and intensified planning for a possible major air attack. Current and former American military and intelligence officials said that Air Force planning groups are drawing up lists of targets, and teams of American combat troops have been ordered into Iran, under cover, to collect targeting data and to establish contact with anti-government ethnic-minority groups. The officials say that President Bush is determined to deny the Iranian regime the opportunity to begin a pilot program, planned for this spring, to enrich uranium.

A lot of the rightwingers hate this guy because he is smart, convincing and respected. And they have never been able to catch him in a lie.

It is pretty obvious to everybody that war with Iran within the next two years is inevitable. The question, however is, are "we" prepared for a total war of annihilation because this will be a war without surrender.

No quarter given. No quarter taken.

Hmmm nuclear options, that is very disconcerting.
Israel drops neutron bombs on bunkers housing those centrifuges in order to disrupt the very sensitive parts required to manufacture weapons grade nuclear material with massive jolts of radiation.

Iran goes ape and passes one of its own nukes - bought secretly from various 'failed Russian states' - to Hezbollah. Hezbollah then lets off a 'retaliatory' dirty bomb in Israel.

In one mighty bound, Shia, non-Arab Iran becomes the poster boy for Muslims across the region, weakening the Sunni regimes and confirming Iran as the kingpin in the region, along with its allies in Syria.

As a result, house prices plummet across the UK, causing a financial crisis and a premature end to Little Chef's efforts to relaunch itself.

The Gulf becomes a tinderbox and the Royal Navy suddenly finds it has no ships left to patrol it or protect vital convoys.
