Bushehr, Iran - Five Targets in One Coastal Area

Molten Eagle has never believed a U.S. attack on Iran is necessary or in the cards, as long as alternatives exist to ridding Tehran of Ahmadinejad. Is he committing a slow political suicide or will he be a victim of a quick transportation or radiological accident?

In order for covert action to be authorized, the President first has to provide the CIA with an official presidential finding to carry out covert actions. President Bush had already signed a 'nonlethal presidential finding' that put in motion CIA plans to pressure the Tehran government. More recently, the U.S. also designated Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps (the 125,000-member elite, military branch) as a 'specially designated global terrorist.' According to U.S. officials, this designation allows Washington to target the group's business operations and finances overtly. What can be done covertly? No one can say.

[T]he Iranian stock market was undergoing "one of the most serious crises in its entire existence...[in the form of] a continuous slump ever since last June's presidential election. ... The downturn has been attributed to uncertainty over the future based on the nuclear question, as well as to President Mahmud Ahmadinejad's seemingly negative attitude toward the stock market.

Iran is one of the few countries in the world to have converted its entire financial sector to an Islamic system... Countering US Administration claims that Iran is heading towards isolation and economic hardship as a result of the nuclear stand-off, Dr Seyed Mohammad Hossein Adeli downplays the impact of sanctions on Iran...

The United States is not going to attack Iran overtly. It does not need to attack Iran to prevent nuclear weapons competence. Stressing Iran out militarily, diplomatically, politically, and economically is all the U.S. needs pursue. Iran's military, scientists and leadership will incur everyday accidents of their own making, reflecting their inexperience, incompetence and inability to endure stress and internal dissidents who may receive covert help.

Since a preemptive strategy was first announced by the Bush White House in December 2002, and since the Pentagon maintains contingency military planning to deal with conceivable threats, the unthinkable must be reviewed from time to time:

Bushehr is a coastal city on the Persian Gulf. It is Iran's primary seaport, the provincial capital, and a few kilometers from Iran's Nuclear Energy College and the Bushehr reactor. Bushehr is also the site of three dams. In other words, Bushehr may be one of the primary targets for bunker busting munitions.
Surprise munitions and delivery options may include:

+ SSGN launched 30,000 pound MOPs
+ Dam bursting UUVs laden with 5,000 pound MOPs (drawing above)
+ RNEPs (Robust Nuclear Earth Penetrators) - Since is still illegal for the U.S. to use this weapon, the technology could be shared with an ally without such inhibitions. Iran's development of nuclear weapons would be accompanied preemptively as its doomsday.

No one would be more surprised than El Presidente for life, Hugo Chavez!
