Washington -  The chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff says the U.S. military has a plan to attack Iran, although he thinks a strike is probably a bad idea.

Adm. Mike Mullen, the nation’s highest-ranking military officer, has often warned that a military strike on Iran would have serious and unpredictable ripple effects around the Middle East. At the same time, he says the risk of Iran developing a nuclear weapon is unacceptable.

Mullen would not say which risk he thinks is worse. But he tells NBC’s “Meet The Press” that a military strike remains an option if need be.

And he says that, should it come to that, the military has a plan at hand. He didn’t elaborate.

You don't have to hurt the people of Iran. Just assassinate that foulmouthed pig achmadinanutjob and a few mullahs. Let them scream and holler all they want. They're impotent!!! [And I didn't mean important]

These idiots do a lot of saber rattling but that's all they're capable of doing unless they get a hold of a nuke. Then we're all in trouble.

You obviously don't know what your talking about. By assasinating these ppl you're putting a bandade on a bullet wound, their is still the matter of the nuclear capabilities. whose to say that more radicalized ppl won't take over? another point to think about is that by killing these mullahs and AchbaHidInTheJohn you are making them martyrs to their people.

I for one am for an attack on their nuclear facilities. Let AchbaHidinTheJohn and the mullahs look like bumbling idiots after sinking billions into a project that was turned into nothing more then ashes.

Think of the pchycological advantage the US and Israel would have on iran and its proxies.

It sends a message to these radicalized shiit muslem that we mean business.

Oh and don't forget "CHECK MATE"
