UPDATE - We recently delivered a warning that, despite all denials, the US is getting ready to bomb Iran?or perhaps have Israel do the job for us. In the March 5th issue of the New Yorker, Seymour Hersh says we are about to attack Iran, something he warned us about last April. UPDATE: There may be a US military revolt brewing.
In the Independent, Anne Penketh writes that, "A Pentagon unit is planning for a bombing attack on Iran which could be carried out ?within 24 hours." She is referring to the article by Hersh, in which he says that a "special planning group" has been set up that is "charged with creating a contingency bombing plan for Iran that can be implemented, upon orders from the [US] President, within 24 hours."
This unit was created after Iranian President Mahmoud Amadinejad warned that Tehran's nuclear program has "no reverse gear." According to Penketh, Condoleezza Rice told a US TV interviewer that "They don't need a reverse gear. They need a stop button."
Vice-President Dick Cheney has said that "all options" are on the table," when it comes to Iran.
UPDATE: In the London Times, Michael Smith and Sarah Baxter report that "Some of America's most senior military commanders are prepared to resign if the White House orders a military strike against Iran, according to highly placed defense and intelligence sources?The Sunday Times has learned that up to five generals and admirals are willing to resign rather than approve what they consider would be a reckless attack.'
A British military defense source says, "All the generals are perfectly clear that they don?t have the military capacity to take Iran on in any meaningful fashion. Nobody wants to do it and it would be a matter of conscience for them."
