Default A list of targets drawn up in U.S. for strikes on Iran

/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Some details revealed concerning U.S. military actions in case if opposition over Iranian nuclear program passes to the stage of military actions. BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner citing a source in diplomatic circles reports that U.S. plans for this case are going much further from airstrikes on known and potential nuclear objects. He said American staff members have already drawn up possible targets, including Iranian air and marine bases, air defense objects, missile factories and command posts. The same list, which has been worked out by Central Command in Florida, includes factories for uranium enrichment in Natanz and Isfahan, as well as objects in Arak and Bushehr.

In its part, Washington declares that the United States is not going to attack Iran and as before, is trying to urge Tehran to solve the problem through diplomatic negotiations. The U.S. claims that Iranian nuclear problem is aimed at working out nuclear weapons. Iran rejects those acquisitions.

Alongside high-ranking U.S. officials accuse Iran of supplying with arms and ammunition to Shia militias in Iraq. But Iranian President Mahmood AhmadiNejad says that Washington’s accusations are efforts to hide U.S. own failures in Iraq.

Meanwhile, last week influential democrat congressmen warned President Bush that he has not necessary power for his intentions to declare war on Iraq. Bush himself repeatedly declared he wants to solve the dispute with Iraq through diplomacy, after which Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi noticed, “I catch him on his words.” She also stressed the U.S. Congress must “clearly say that neither this nor other U.S. presidents have power to attack Iran,” BBC Russian service reports.
