Iran Prepares For War

IRGC-logoThe Telegraph reports that Iran’s Revolutionary Guards have been put on a war footing amid increasing signs that the West is taking direct action to cripple Iran’s nuclear programme. But should the headline really be “Mainstream Media Prepare The West For War Against Iran”?

An order from Gen Mohammed Ali Jaafari, the commander of the guards, raised the operational readiness status of the country’s forces, initiating preparations for potential external strikes and covert attacks.

Western intelligence officials said the Islamic Republic had initiated plans to disperse long-range missiles, high explosives, artillery and guards units to key defensive positions.

The order was given in response to the mounting international pressure over Iran’s nuclear programme. Preparation for a confrontation has gathered pace following last month’s report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna that produced evidence that Iran was actively working to produce nuclear weapons.

The Iranian leadership fears the country is being subjected to a carefully co-ordinated attack by Western intelligence and security agencies to destroy key elements of its nuclear infrastructure.

    Israel is doing just about everything it can to goad them into war. I don’t know how much longer they can resist. The shit nears the fan.

      Thanks for posting that – if everybody dosn’t already do so, I highy recommend checking out all of the regular free publications from both the Brookings Institution and RAND.  It’s amazing how blatant its spelled out for all to see – but no one bothers to look (present company excluded) – secrecy through mass apathy.

    I love how everyone is ignoring the US’s own reports on Iran’s military which state quite clearly that Iran’s military strategy is primarily defensive with a heavy emphasis on suing for peace as quickly as possible.  And then they turn around and cry about how “aggressive” Iran is.  For fuck’s sake
