Strategists at the Pentagon are drawing up plans for devastating bombing raids backed by submarine-launched ballistic missile attacks against Iran's nuclear sites as a "last resort" to block Teheran's efforts to develop an atomic bomb.
Central Command and Strategic Command planners are identifying targets, assessing weapon-loads and working on logistics for an operation, the Sunday Telegraph has learnt.
"This is more than just the standard military contingency assessment," said a senior Pentagon adviser. "This has taken on much greater urgency in recent months."
They see how bad the Chimp's approval ratings are and they see their chances of losing a majority of Congress in November becoming more of a reality every day. They know they can play the 'war preznit' meme and the morons in this country will fall in line. This will definitely happen before Election Day. Mark my words.
The ramifications of an attack in Iran will manifest themselves almost immediately in the form of higher fuel costs. Prepare for more terror attacks for the long term too, for as much as the Chimp talks about keeping us safe, a safe, peaceful America is the last thing he wants. It gives the American sheep too much time to think about how badly he's fucked things up.
I figure my draft notice should be showing up about this time next year.
