“Hostile” Iran Sparks U.S. Attack Plan

“A second American aircraft carrier steamed into the Persian Gulf Tuesday as the Pentagon ordered military commanders to develop new options for attacking Iran.”

and then Gates trots out his they’re killing us in Iraq crock. Not to be outdone, Mullen drops this load…

No attacks are imminent and the last thing the Pentagon wants is another war, but Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mike Mullen has warned Iran not to assume the U.S. military can’t strike.

“I have reserve capability, in particular our Navy and our Air Force so it would be a mistake to think that we are out of combat capability,” Mullen said.

Feeling left out, Maliki drops trou with his contribution…

Targets would include everything from the plants where weapons are made to the headquarters of the organization known as the Quds Force which directs operations in Iraq. Later this week Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is expected to confront the Iranians with evidence of their meddling and demand a halt.

And, if that isn’t enough, the shoe lady’s stepping in.

the State Department has begun drafting an ultimatum that would tell the Iranians to knock it off – or else.

Hope no one was planning on a vacation this summer.
