Battle plan for Iran ready - US envoy to Israel

submit to reddit

The Pentagon has a ready plan for a military attack on Iran, the American ambassador to Israel warned days before a key meeting over the controversial nuclear program of the Islamic Republic.

Western countries and Israel are exerting pressure on Iran to stop uranium enrichment, saying that Tehran is secretly trying to build a nuclear bomb. Iran insists that its nuclear program is strictly civil.

“It would be preferable to resolve this diplomatically and through the use of pressure than to use military force,” US Ambassador Dan Shapiro said in remarks about Iran aired by Israel’s Army Radio on Thursday.

“But that doesn’t mean that option is not fully available – not just available, but it’s ready. The necessary planning has been done to ensure that it’s ready,” said Shapiro.

The conflict is to be discussed in Baghdad on May 23, when envoys from the P5+1 group, which includes Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the US, are to meet Iranian negotiators. The previous round of talks was held in Istanbul on April 14.

Earlier there were numerous reports that Iran may face a pre-emptive strike either by Israel alone or by Israel and its NATO allies, if they see no other option to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear capabilities. However, intelligence communities both in Israel and the US believe that Iran has not taken a political decision to build the bomb yet.

Meanwhile the US may mount more sanctions against Iran, as the Senate is discussing a new package on Thursday. The sanctions are focused on foreign banks that handle transactions for Iran’s national oil and tanker companies, and include measures to close loopholes in existing sanctions.

The US and EU have put a ban on the import of Iranian oil to cripple its foreign currency revenues. Washington also convinced several Iranian partners, such as Japan and South Korea, to reduce their trade with Tehran. Foreign companies involved in oil trade with Iran are risking sanctions, including being banned from American and European financial markets.

Iran says the economic sanctions would not stop it from pursuing nuclear energy development and says the Baghdad talks must be based on the recognition of rights of the Iranian nation to do so.

“Talks for cooperation, based on the alienable rights of the Iranian nation, must be put on the table in Baghdad,” the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, Saeed Jalili, said on Thursday.

Iran’s top nuclear negotiator says time is running out “for applying pressure and this approach has failed to bear results,” which came in response to the warning by some P5+1 members, that time is running out for Iran in terms of dialogue.

    alfredjones, you’re totaly blind, disconnected from a reality.
    don’t you see how scary are the countries in the persian gulf, Kuwait, Qatar, Iraq of course, Yemen…etc..?
    Ayatulahs of iran are threatening all of them, including Israel.
    Iran has become a nuclear bully.
    So, who do you think can protect all these countries? US of course, together with Israel.
    Israel can protect itself very well, with all the hitech innovations that nobody knows exactly what they are. Israel has many surprises for iran.
    War is not needed actually, battlefields are unnecessary. HiTech is the answer.
    And Israel used it before and using it now.

      And also what has your country done anything for anyone aside for themselves You haven’t helped your allies.

      Do you remember The USS Liberty if not Google it in my opinion we should cut ties with your fucked up country your country and leaders haven’t done a damn thing to help America.

      All you’ve done is take American money, Make America fight useless wars along with American soldiers being killed. Injure, Imprison,Suppress and Kill The Palestinians and Make America the most hated country ever in the whole world and run it into the ground. :-x :-x :-x :-x

      Fuck Israel Forever

      It’s amazing how Israelis have very different views than the rest, and they are sure their views are true. How they can’t see they are causing problems to the rest of the world and still think they are just? Rambam, did you see the rating under your comment? Do you think it’s only muslims rating you? Dont you see how your country’s actions are deeply hated by rest of the world? Are you not ashamed, even just a little bit? Look Alfred Jones comment, isn’t he just so damn right? Are you actually proud that your people are sucking the life of US, pushing them to the wars, resulting suffering and death? Are you actually proud that majority of bloodsucking bankers happen to be jews? Are you proud of zionizm? Arabs are not the most symphetetic people on earth, but thanks to your governments actions, people actually learning to like them now. You are actually prooving that dumb arabs are not the worse things in middle east, bloodthirsty jews are. And don’t get me wrong, I have NOTHING against any religion or race. Just your government policies and attitude.

      what proof is there that Iran has nuclear capabilities? The same “proof” that told the world Iraq had WMD? What, do you operate on a 6 month memory span? You dont see the same old crap spewed out again and again, president after president?
      Nothing is about the protection of Israel or USA, its about fattening the profit margins of sociopathic, quasi fascist oil corporations. Wake up and smell whats been shovelled.

    Well it isn’t smart to say ur objective is to annihilate a country and then expect to be aloud to develop nuclear power..
    Also its pretty ignorant that u believe its all israel with the false flags, trust me ur own goberment is in it working together with israel.. but hey its easier to blame some other country rather then ur own..
    And the latest wars u made thinking of afghan/iraq/libya had absolutely nothing to do with israel and everything to do with resources/domination to russia/china..
    I’m not for or against israel or usa for that matter, just seeing the things how they are..
    U better watch out for ur own goberment rather then israel, as it is usa being 1-2 steps away of becoming an fascist/dictator country..
    Keep believing what u want, some day u wake up and u will understand what i said here..

    oyea 1 more thing,
    The hole hype around iran isn’t about israel, if they want to iran is gone within a week without nato help..

    I agrre Israel is a great devil, but USA is not behind. I dont say about american population, i think most of them is very well manipulated by a strong media. But the government of the USA treats the war as something normal, and its not. Its not normal to stay over than 10 years in wars with different nations and threatening others for more war. Afheganistan, Iraq, Lybia…now they want Syria and Iran. The world is not blind anymore and i think our future will be sad.
