    Iran's Revolutionary Guards prepare for war

    Iran’s Revolutionary Guards have been put on a war footing amid increasing signs that the West is taking direct action to cripple Iran’s nuclear programme.

    An order from Gen Mohammed Ali Jaafari, the commander of the guards, raised the operational readiness status of the country’s forces, initiating preparations for potential external strikes and covert attacks.
    I hope this can be averted...

    If they really were preparing for war, would they tell us?

    It is a show of power. The Chinese, Koreans and Russians do it every year. It is their version of a parade.

    It's not like they're going to sneak up on us. I think they're just trying to get the anti-war folks stirred up.

    More like by tracking troop movements towards more active and in defensive positions, you can extrapolate that there are war preparations...

    Why does this remind me of Hitler and the burning of the Reichstag?

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I think it is kind of funny. Iran challenging and preparing for war against the US and Britain is like a Junior High football team challenging and preparing to play the Green Bay Packers.

    According to the articles these idiots are already blowing themselves up.

    They can prepare all they want, it will still take just a week or so before they´re toast anyway, less with the right technology

    Then they should be hung by the lamp posts, liked Gays, or stoned to death like they treat their women.

    You really think its going to be that simple???? We've been in Iraq for about 10 years...

    Oh, and if they block the straight, well, you able to pay 200+$/ barrel of oil??

    A war with Iran would more than likely go nuclear, also, there's a good chance that it would spill over into neighboring countries....

    It's not surprising that they are doing something like this in the face of American aggression.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."
