Diplomatic Sources: Plans for Air and Naval Strikes on Iran Submitted

This boggles the mind. Why would any military entity not have plans to retaliate should their military assets be attacked. That would seem to be a no-brainer if not completely incompetent. One doesn't just sit there as targets.

As for provocation, its pure bullshit. Unless attacked, the military has no right to attack in spite of what the moron believes. To some degree, many countries of the world have "provoked" the US.
The U.S. military has drafted and won approval for attack plans in response to an Iran attack.

Western diplomatic sources said the U.S. military's Central Command has submitted plans for an air and naval strike on Iran, Middle East Newsline reported. The sources said the plan envisioned escalating tensions that would peak with an Iranian-inspired insurgency strike against U.S. military assets in the Gulf.
Comment: So that's what all the recent allegations about Iran being involved in Iraq are about: they are, as we suspected, part of the necessary propaganda to carry out the war plan already approved, signed and rubber-stamped. They just needed an excuse to invade and now they have decided which one that will be.

Meanwhile, on April 29, a second American aircraft carrier, USS Abraham Lincoln, steamed into the Gulf in what officials termed a show of force. They said the U.S. Navy plans to withdraw a carrier group, USS Harry S. Truman, from the region.
Comment: Aircraft carriers are not moved around the globe for no reason.

"There is tremendous tactical benefit to us to operate the two side-by-side in restricted space," Lt. Gen. Carter Ham, director of operations at the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on Wednesday. "We can generate more sorties, some of them strike, some of them reconnaissance, some of them to perform other operations."

"This is not some grand scheme to destroy the Iranian regime and its nuclear program," a source said. "It is a practical plan on how to respond to an Iranian strike or a provocation."
Comment: It has already been decided that an Iranian "provocation" will take place - whether the Iranians like it or not.

Officials said the Defense Department has sought an update for plans to attack Iran amid what they term its "increasingly hostile role" against the United States. The officials cited the weapons flow to insurgency groups in Iraq as well as confrontations with U.S. ships in the Gulf.

"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," Adm. Michael Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said.

Under the plan approved by the Defense Department, Central Command would be allowed to retaliate for an Iranian attack with U.S. air strikes. The sources said the plan contained a series of options that range from a limited to full-scale attack.

"We are not taking any military elements off the table," Mullen said.

Isn't it about time everyone retired the "off the table" locution? I know I'm fucking sick of hearing/reading it.
