In a planned announcement designed to justify the need for Iran to enrich uranium to weapons grade or higher, Iranian officials confirmed plans to build a nuclear powered submarine. This announcement comes just days before the resumption of talks designed to stop Iran from further enrichment activities. This now sets the stage for pre-emptive military strikes by the U.S or Israel in the next few months extending the cyberattacks already launched by the U.S.  and recently revealed in the media.

The Crystal Ball

Here are the first of several predictions for the year:

UPDATE 2-5-2012: We are altering our prediction related to an attack on Iranian nuclear facilities by U.S. or Israeli forces. We had originally predicted that there would be no attack by either the U.S. or Israel this year. We now see a forthcoming attack from the Israeli side to occur sometime from July-September of this year when attempts through diplomacy appear to have failed. The attack targets will be Natanz, Esfahan and Arak with an elite IDF force going after the Fordo complex through a targeted land attack using a small ground force supported by complementing air strikes. Some Iranian missile sites will also be targeted to reduce the counterattack capability of Iran. The U.S. will disavow any direct assistance in this action but will signal their support as a sovereign rite for Israel to defend itself. There will be additional rocket attacks from Lebanon and the Gaza strip as Hezbollah and Hamas forces also join in to the fray to open a 3 point front with Israel.
