    Report: U.S. Has Plan to Knock Out Iran's Military

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,295529,00.html

    This is news????

    Only in the world of those who "LOATHE the military" could this concept be considered "news".

    For those who are unaware of how the military works: there are plans for almost EVERY conceivable scenario where we might have to go to war with another country; even with allies (we were allies with Iran until the overthrow of the Shah).

    I would be disappointed if our military planners did NOT have a contingency plan for action against Iran. And they probably have several different options worked up.

    This is more of a rant against the "clueless" media who have no intimate knowledge of military affairs.

    This is a piece from Fox News, the unofficial cheerleaders of the Bush administration.

    I'm sure with our airstrike capability (smart weapons, cruise missiles, stealth aircraft) we could wipe out Iran's military capability within a few days. Trouble is, with the amount of oil revenue they bring in (propped up by our own consumption of the black slippery stuff), the Iranians could afford to completely replace the stuff we blew up within a few months.

    Actually, if you read the first paragraph, the article is from the Times of London....

    We don't need to knock out their military, we need to knock out their nuclear facilities...

    They are providing weapons and support to our enemies that are directly fighting our enemies in Iraq. If we hit Iran's military structure while we are taking out their nuclear capabilities, I'm all for it...
