US Iran attack by end of April?

Earlier there were reports that the attack would be Good Friday or at least the attack would be ready by then. Perhaps the US has decided that there should be a "decent" interval between the peaceful solution of the UK Iran crisis and the aggression by the US. This article is picked up by Yahoo so it will be widely circulated. Anonymous sources are always suspect. It may be part of a psych warfare operation. Who knows!

US to attack Iran by end of April: report

Wednesday April 4, 02:30 PM
Kuwait City, April 4 (Xinhua) The US is planning to attack Iran's nuclear reactors and other nuclear facilities by the end of this month, the Kuwait-based Arab Times newspaper reported Wednesday.

Citing anonymous sources in Washington, it said that various White House departments had started preparing the political speech to be delivered by the US president later this month, announcing the military attack on Iran.

The speech will provide the 'evidence' and the 'justification' for the US to resort to the military option after failing to persuade Tehran to give up its nuclear ambitions, said the report.

According to the Times, one of the justifications expected in the speech is Iran's alleged role in the killing of American soldiers in Iraq by supporting various militias with money and arms.

The US president's speech will also point to Iran's political interference in Iraq, obviously in cooperation with Syria.

The sources were quoted as saying that US will not resort to a ground attack in order to avoid human losses.
