UNITED STATES VS. IRAN - WAR TALK

The talk of war has been ratcheted up over the past few weeks on both sides... Geostrategy-Direct.com is reporting today that the U.S. has finished attack simulations on IRAN's nuclear sites:

"The U.S. Defense Department has reportedly completed simulated war games to determine the feasibility of destroying Iran's nuclear weapons program. The first phase called for air strikes against bases of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, believed to control Iran's nuclear and missile programs. U.S. intelligence sources were quoted as saying that such a strike would require one day and would be the easiest part of any military campaign."

Meanwhile, IRAN's media/gov't complex has been VERY blunt about their counter-strike capability should ANY attack come their way. In an article coming out of Asia Times, it is suggested that IRAN's counter-strikes may begin with MISSLE attacks within their region of influence at strategic U.S. targets (READ: IRAQ, ISRAEL). In addition, IRAN claims to have 25,000 suicide squad members ready to carry out asymmetrical warfare AROUND THE WORLD.
