Iran: The Road to Armageddon?

Felicity Arbuthnot at - it appears that the Busheviks are hell-bent on creating armageddon in Iran. Fuck you, George Hitler Bush. Up the ass. With a chain saw. [skype]

On the ground in the Middle East (or in this case on the water) it seems not. Here is a communication from a Landing Signals Officer* (an LSO directs carrier aircraft whilst landing) on a carrier attack group that is planning and staging a strike group deployment in the Strait of Hormuz, one of the world's most strategically vital oil routes, which is controlled by Iran.

The LSO is convinced Iran will be attacked, commenting that "... all Air Operation Planning and Asset Tasking are finished (meaning) all targets have been chosen, prioritized and tasked to specific aircraft, bases, carriers, missile cruisers ..." Further, the LSO comments, there is deep disquiet amongst senior officers about "staging a massive attack on Iran". However, "I have seen more than one senior Commander disappear ..."; it's weird, because everyone who has "disappeared" has questioned this mission.

How limited would the attack be?

"I don't think it's limited at all. We are shipping in and assigning every Tomahawk, we have an inventory. I think this is going to be massive and sudden (with) thousands of targets. I believe no American will know when it happens, until after it happens."The LSO ponders that discussing a secret attack is "treason" but is so concerned "something tells me to tell it anyway."

"Yes, we are going to hit Iran big time. Whatever political discussion that is going on is window dressing ... a red herring. I see what's going on here below deck, in the hangers and weapons bay - and I have a sick feeling about how it is going to turn out.'"

Would the US Administration really endanger the entire planet?

Attack on Iran not such a secret?

Obama's recently chosen Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has been quoted as saying, "we can obliterate Iran." Sounds like she may have taken notes in the "Situation Room" when her husand was tossing Tomahawks into Sudan. See:

"ACCORDING TO TIM CARNEY, THE LAST U.S. AMBASSADOR to Sudan, whose posting ended in 1997, The fact is, they were opening the doors, and we weren't taking them up on it. The U.S. failed to reciprocate Sudan's willingness to engage us on some serious questions of terrorism. We can speculate that this failure had serious implicationsæat least for what happened at the U.S. Embassies in 1998. In any case, the U.S. lost access to a mine of material on bin Laden and his organization." He tells Rose, It was worse than a crime. It was a fuckup." '
