News reports say that Pentagon has created a panel for   Iran bombing.On the other Iran has said that it is  prepared both for war and talks with the United States, a top foreign ministry official said yesterday, amid speculation of American plans for military action against Tehran. "We have prepared ourselves for any situation, even if war happens," Deputy Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mohammadi told the ISNA news agency "Iran is ready for negotiations without preconditions with the United States, but the Americans have not accepted it yet," he added."We have had unofficial meetings with Americans over Afghanistan and Iraq, but they say first Iran should accept US conditions and then talks take place."

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has insisted she would only hold talks with her Iranian counterpart if Tehran first agreed to a suspension of sensitive nuclear activities. Mohammadi said that if the UN Security Council adopted a second resolution imposing sanctions over Iran’s  nuclear programme, Tehran would press on with its  nuclear work.

US Vice President Dick Cheney reignited speculation of US military intervention in Iran when he said Washington favours a diplomatic approach to Tehran’s atomic programme but that "all options are still on the table." The United States and Israel accuse Iran of seeking nuclear weapons. Tehran denies the charges, insisting its atomic programme is peaceful in nature.

Despite the Bush administration’s insistence it has no plans to go to war with Iran, a Pentagon panel has been created to plan a bombing attack that could be implemented within 24 hours of getting the go-ahead from President George W Bush, The New Yorker magazine reported in its latest issue. The special planning group was established within the office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in recent months, according to an unidentified former US intelligence official cited in the article by investigative reporter Seymour Hersh in the March 4 issue.

The panel initially focused on destroying Iran’s nuclear facilities and on regime change but has more recently been directed to identify targets in Iran that may be involved in supplying or aiding militants in Iraq, according to an Air Force adviser and a Pentagon consultant, who were not identified.The consultant and a former senior intelligence official both said that US military and special-operations teams had crossed the border from Iraq into Iran in pursuit of Iranian operatives, according to the article.

We are appalled at the saber-rattling of the US leaders. They have been talking of action against Iran all the time. These are all against international laws but US does not care in most cases of the international law. How the US would react if others will do it. They will just start an attack in the name of international law and of course in the name of international community.

 

The war seems to be round the corner with colossal consequences unless US is stopped. We do not think anybody can stop US , not even the UN. Only the American Congress can do it and we urge US Congress to act rapidly fir the sake of humanity.
