    Default US Plans To Attack Iran in June

    I received an e-mail today from a very concerned British based anti-war group regarding the Bush administration's plans to bomb Iran in June 2005 probably followed up by a US-UK invasion and attempted overthrow of the Iranian government.

    The source of this information is the respected former UNSCOM inspector and anti-Iraq war campaigner Scott Ritter, who says the US government has already signed off plans for the attack on Iran.

    See link http://www.ufppc.org/content/view/2295/2/

    How will this look for Tony Blair and the British Labour party in an election year ?

    I'm willing to bet 50 that the USA won't bomb Iran in June 2005, if you want to take me up on it NJP, and 100 that they won't invade over the next 4 years

    Disturbing if true but surely they would be more likely to use Israel as the proxy?

    Airstrikes are definately a possibility but not before some quick UN SC resolution attempts/IAEA.
    Invasion not a chance.

    I think your anti-war guy is struggling to be relevant in 2005

    You seem quite relaxed about the possibility (of airstrikes)

    If they are struck they will throw everything they can at Tel Aviv thus sparking a wider conflict probably.

    Can I join that bet as well. There is not a chance the U.S. will bomb or invade Iran in 2005. There still too busy in Iraq to bomb Iran.

    Well, Im quite relaxed because there is nothing I can do about it one way or the other...
    it will be the last option not the first so it shouldnt happen - I agree Iran might have a go at Tel Aviv, but Israel definiately do have nukes so that might not happen either, I think they wont do it because the Iranian people would suppport the regieme more.

    I think Germany (largest trade partner) and Russia (nuke tech supplier) have the power to put an end to their Nuke ambitions so the pressure will go from being on Iran to being on them
