U.S. Poised to Invade Iran

MOSCOW, March 30 (RIA Novosti) - Russian intelligence has information that the U.S. Armed Forces have nearly completed preparations for a possible military operation against Iran, and will be ready to strike in early April, a security official said.

The source said the U.S. had already compiled a list of possible targets on Iranian territory and practiced the operation during recent exercises in the Persian Gulf.

"Russian intelligence has information that the U.S. Armed Forces stationed in the Persian Gulf have nearly completed preparations for a missile strike against Iranian territory," the source said.

American commanders will be ready to carry out the attack in early April, but it will be up to the country's political leadership to decide if and when to attack, the source said.

Official data says America's military presence in the region has reached the level of March 2003 when the U.S. invaded Iraq.

Got a link to 2008 article? All the links are for 2007 articles that I can see.

Funny thing about that...

Susan had posted some links on it earlier today on the Bourse thread that related to the topic...


I went there to pull them for you and they are now dead links... from seperate news sources. They worked for me this morning. She pulled a lot of the body of the articles and posted, as she always does, so you can read them on that thread.


Edited... The April 4th date some are kicking around is further backed up here if you wish to connect the dots....

March 30 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. lost jobs for a third month in March and manufacturing contracted at the fastest pace in five years, signs the economy continues to turn down, economists said before reports this week.

Payrolls probably shrank by 50,000, according to the median estimate of economists surveyed by Bloomberg News before the Labor Department's April 4 report. The last time the economy lost jobs for at least three consecutive months coincided with the start of the Iraq War in 2003.


This would be a pure economic coincidence, of course.. ~innocent look~
