On Meet the Press this morning, Admiral Mike Mullen said that the US does in fact have a plan in place to strike Iran militarily. However, he warned that this would be a bad idea (as if that has stopped US imperialism in the past):
Adm. Mike Mullen, the nation’s highest-ranking military officer, has often warned that a military strike on Iran would have serious and unpredictable ripple effects around the Middle East. At the same time, he says the risk of Iran developing a nuclear weapon is unacceptable.
Mullen would not say which risk he thinks is worse. But he tells NBC’s “Meet The Press” that a military strike remains an option if need be.
With two disastrous wars going on at the moment, one more would be a death knell to the American Empire.Published in
