Plans for a Military strike on Iran are Ready

U.S. plans for a possible military strike on Iran are ready and the option is "fully available", the U.S. ambassador to Israel said jut before Tehran resumes talks with world powers.

Like Israel, the United States has said it considers military force a last resort to prevent Iran using its uranium enrichment to make a bomb. Iran insists its nuclear program is for purely civilian purposes (yeah, right...)

"It would be preferable to resolve this diplomatically and through the use of pressure than to use military force," Ambassador Dan Shapiro said in remarks about Iran aired by Israel's Army Radio. "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 United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany have been using sanctions and negotiations to try to persuade Iran to curb its uranium enrichment, which can produce fuel for reactors, medical isotopes, and, at higher levels of purification, fissile material for warheads. New talks opened in Istanbul last month and are scheduled resume in Baghdad.

Israel, which is widely assumed to have the Middle East's only atomic arsenal, feels threatened by the prospect of its arch-foe Iran going nuclear and has hinted it could launch preemptive war. But many analysts believe the United States alone has the military clout to do lasting damage to Iran's nuclear program but we have seemed reluctant to resort to the use of force

Its a race to see if Iran succeeds in delayng long enough to begin making bombs or if Isreal, or the United States will strike first. Whatever happens, it's going to be bad for everyone -and time is rapidly running out!
