    Another Warning to Iran?

    The US is apparently updating its War Plans with Iran:

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military is updating its war plans for Iran but is not in a heightened state of planning over Tehran's suspected nuclear weapons program, a senior general said on Wednesday.

    "I'm not spending any of my time worrying about the nuclear proliferation in Iran. I haven't been called into any late-night meetings at 8 o'clock at night saying, 'Holy cow, we got to sit down and go plan for Iran,"' Air Force Lt. Gen. Lance Smith said at a Pentagon briefing.

    Smith is deputy commander of the U.S. Central Command and oversees military operations in the Middle East, parts of Asia and northern Africa.

    "As far as the planning efforts, we simply go through our normal mode of updating whatever war plans we have for all parts of our region," he said.

    This sounds like a pressure move to me.
