Tales of the 1001 Arabian Nights: USA to Attack Iran any day now

The following concoction is offered by the Arab Times of Kuwait, whose editor, Ahmad Jarallah, must've gotten hold of some really good Lebanese Hashish.
Of course, if the attack never comes, then it will be ascribed to the wise leadership of the forces of the Mahdi, led by Mr. Ahmadinejad, who overcame the plots of the American Neocon sons of pigs, who are all in the grip of the Jewish Lobby, as Mr Carter insists.

YOU CAN HIT, BUT NOT WIN: RUSSIA; 'US to attack Iran by end April'; Bush warns
The United States is planning to attack Iran's nuclear reactors and other nuclear facilities by the end of this month, sources in Washington told the Arab Times Tuesday. These sources added that various White House departments have already started preparing the political speech, which will be delivered by the President of the United States later this month, announcing the military attack on Iran. These sources added that the speech will provide the "evidence" and the justification for the United States to resort to the military option after failing to persuade Iran to give up its nuclear ambitions and work with the rest of the world to ensure safety and stability in the Gulf .
Iran says it is developing nuclear facilities as it needs nuclear power for peaceful purposes while the United States is of the opinion that Iran wants to become a nuclear power and sees this as a threat to the Middle East, in general, and Israel in particular. One of the justifications which will be provided in the speech is the role of the Iranian regime in the killing of American soldiers in Iraq by supporting various militias both with money and arms.

The American President's speech will also point to Iran's political interference in the internal affairs of Iraq, obviously in cooperation with Syria. The US president will also highlight Iran's interference in Somalia , the Horn of Africa , Afghanistan, Yemen and Lebanon.
The sources, stressing that the attack will take place this month, say that the United States will not resort to a ground attack and the Americans will not enter Iran in order to avoid human losses because they plan to achieve their aim through air attacks. The United States is expected to attack only Iran's nuclear reactors and other nuclear facilities through weapons and directions which will come as a surprise to Iran.
Agencies add:
US President George W. Bush warned Tuesday that a nuclear-armed Iran would be "a seriously destabilizing influence in the Middle East" and vowed to keep working to prevent it.
"I firmly believe that, if Iran were to have a nuclear weapon, it would be a seriously destabilizing influence in the Middle East," Bush said during a question-and-answer session with reporters at the White House.
"And therefore we have worked to build an international coalition to try to convince the Iranians to give up their weapon, make it clear that they have choices to make," said the president. The United States cannot inflict a military defeat on Iran and any attack would be a huge political mistake, Russia's top general said on Tuesday. "It is possible to damage Iran's military and industrial potential, but it is impossible to win," Russian news agencies quoted General Yuri Baluyevsky, head of the Russian general staff, as saying.
"The United States has a contingent in the region capable of launching a strike on Iranian territory. "However, such possible strikes would be a huge political mistake. Shockwaves from this attack could be felt around the world." Washington and its Western allies accuse Iran of wanting to build nuclear bombs, a charge Tehran denies. Tensions have been further aggravated by Iran's capture of 15 British sailors and marines in the northern Gulf on March 23.
Russia sells weapons to the Iranian military and is helping Tehran build a nuclear power station on the Gulf although work there is on hold over a payment dispute. Russian media late last month quoted unnamed sources in Russian military intelligence as saying the United States could launch a strike on Iran as early as April 6. RIA news agency quoted a Russian security source as saying Moscow has military intelligence reports that the US has already approved a list of Iranian targets for bomb and missile strikes. The source said a land operation could follow.
President Bush has said he will pursue diplomatic means to persuade Iran to drop its uranium enrichment plan but he has refused to rule out the use of force. Baluyevsky said military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan showed the United States would face a fiasco if it took on Iran as well. "The Americans must think twice (about attacking Iran)," he said. "They have already got stuck in Afghanistan and Iraq."
