Well, it sure looks like it according to this BBC News story….

US
‘Iran attack plans’ revealed

US contingency plans for possible air strikes on Iran include most
of its military infrastructure, the BBC learns.

I saw the potential for this coming a while back. In March ’06, after Iran
threatened the US with "pain"
if UN measures were imposed
against it because of it’s nuclear program I observed that they were
going the same way as Saddam Hussein and that if they didn’t change
their ways, they’d suffer the same fate.

Just last month I saw a story about Iran
barring members of a nuclear inspection
team from entering the
country and wondered if Iran would be the next Iraq. Most recently, In a
post about an Iranian
threat to hit American interests, I commented that If Iran were to
make good on that threat to attack US interests they’d find themselves
up to their eyeballs in "regime change".

And now this pops up about US plans for a possible attack on Iran.
Frankly, I believe that this little tidbit was deliberately put out as
part of a ‘message’ to Iran. "If you mess with us, we WILL spank you and
put you to bed."

Now it’s true that regardless of what the President does or does not
want to do, there is a lot of anti-war sentiment in America these days. 
However in spite of that, if American people and interest start getting
attacked by Iranian (or Iranian backed) forces, public sentiments will
turn very quickly into ‘get revenge’ mode.  Once that happens Iran will
be in for serious trouble.
