The Coming US-NATO Attack on Iran

Updated on November 2, 2011

Coming out on Nov. 8, will be the Atomic Energy's report which, according to leaks, state that Iran will have hidden all its nuclear and ballistic missile facilities away in deep underground tunnels where they will be invulnerable to attack within 12 months. Thus, the clock is ticking if the West is to do anything about it.

In the past weeks, the Israeli Airforce has been training with NATO counterparts from airbases in Italy. Israel's Jericho 3 intercontinental missile was successfully launched. It has a range of 7000 km with a nuclear payload. Israel has also conducted large scale anti-missile attack games to shoot incoming missiles out before they hit. Already, several US carriers and task forces are in the Middle East area and the UK asked the US for permission to use airbases at Diego Garcia.

The US presidential race is Nov. 2012, so if the US-NATO is going to do anything, it must occur in the next 12 months. Israel fears an attack from Hezbollah and\or Syria and is preparing for that. Right now, the gathering of resources in the Mideast and closer to Iran is hopefully to convince Iran to give up the nuclear options. If it fails, then Obama simply needs to give the order. Judging by his past reluctance, it seems unlikely, yet, the swift decision that ended Osama Bin-laden's life makes it a real possibility of it happening.

I think Iran is not going to change its mind unless it is attacked, even then, it may not. Thus, it seems we are a collision course where things could easily spin out of control.

      Great report. I wonder if that is the real reason for the quick pullout from Iraq, and hints of accelerated pullout from Afghanistan? And what about Iran's buddy Assad? I fear for the future, we have lost so many already.

      I agree, plus the Iranian president is also under investigation of a million dollar fraud case.

      The Iranian President was visibly shaky during the last Interview with Aljazeera. That was the first time I saw fear in the defiant president. He is aware of a seemingly quiet american government that would gather Intelligence and strike without a prior Notice. I trust the present American government to launch a surprise attack on all Iranian Nuclear Installations if there are credible Intelligence.
