The Coming Catastrophe?

The finishing touches on several contingency plans for attacking Iran

By David DeBatto

. . . If the United States attacks Iran either this summer or this fall, the American people had better be prepared for a shock that may perhaps be even greater to the national psyche (and economy) than 9/11.

First of all, there will be significant U.S. casualties in the initial invasion.

American jets will be shot down and the American pilots who are not killed will be taken prisoner - including female pilots.

Iranian Yakhonts 26, Sunburn 22 and Exocet missiles will seek out and strike U.S. naval battle groups bottled up in the narrow waters of the Persian Gulf with very deadly results.

American sailors will be killed and U.S. ships will be badly damaged and perhaps sunk. We may even witness the first attack on an American Aircraft carrier since World War II.

That’s just the opening act. . . .
