The Navy
Leads In
The Inevitable
Attack
On Iran


Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, we hardly knew ye (from Astute Bloggers):


JPost:
A high-ranking American military officer told the Post that senior officers
in the US armed forces had thrown their support behind Bush and believed that
additional steps needed to be taken to stop Iran.


Predictions within the US military are that Bush will do what is needed
to stop Teheran before he leaves office in 2009, including possibly launching a
military strike against its nuclear facilities…


According to a high-ranking American military officer, the US Navy and
Air Force would play the primary roles in any military action taken against
Iran. One idea under consideration is a naval blockade designed to cut off
Iran’s oil exports.


The officer said that if the US government or the UN Security Council
decided on this course of action, the US Navy would most probably not block the
Strait of Hormuz - a step that would definitely draw an Iranian military
response - but would patrol farther out and turn away tankers on their way to
load oil.


THE FACT THAT IT WOULD BE A NAVY LED ATTACK IS WHY THE NEW CHAIRMAN WILL BE AN ADMIRAL.

MIGHT I REMIND YOU THAT THE CHIEF OF CENTCOM IS AN ADMIRAL, TOO.

Irans' day of reckoning is coming...
