Gates Says U.S. Lacks Policy to Curb Iran’s Nuclear Drive

Several officials said the highly classified analysis, written in January to President Obama’s national security adviser, Gen. James L. Jones, came in the midst of an intensifying effort inside the Pentagon, the White House and the intelligence agencies to develop new options for Mr. Obama. They include a set of military alternatives, still under development, to be considered should diplomacy and sanctions fail to force Iran to change course.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This article, and articles like it, are being circulated in the corporate media to "groom" the American public for support of a military strike against Iran; but no thinking person I know is "buying" a military confrontation as the right thing to do here.

Iran, as a signatory to the NNPT, has had its nuclear program under the continuous inspection of the IAEA. To date, no nuclear materials have gone missing, and there has been no enrichment of nuclear material beyond that necessary to run a power station.

Such an attack may well go global, including such players as China (Iran's largest trading partner) and Russia, joining the fray on the part of Iran. And please remember: both countries have nukes.
