Nearly 60% of respondents to an Infowars.com poll believe the U.S and Israel will attack Iran in the near future.
On July 27, Steve Watson, writing for Prison Planet.com, reported on a comment made by Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stating he thinks the U.S., backed by Israel, is preparing to attack two countries in the middle East within months.
“We have precise information that the Americans have devised a plot, according to which they seek to launch a psychological war on Iran,” Ahmadinejad told Iranian state media Press TV. “They plan to attack at least two countries in the region within the next three months,” he added.
Watson wrote that although Ahmadinejad did not elaborate on which two countries were targeted, it must be assumed his reference was to Syria and Lebanon, both Iranian allies and both previous targets of U.S. backed Israeli aggression in recent years.
16 percent of those taking part in the poll believe Iran will be attacked after the U.S. mid-term elections, while 13% think the attack will occur next year or later. 15 percent responded that there will not be an attack on Iran or any other country in the Middle East.
Earlier today, Tabatabaei-Nejad, an Iranian lawmaker, said the U.S. and Israel are incapable of building a global consensus to strike Iran over its nuclear program, according to Press TV. The comments arrive nearly two weeks after the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, spoke of a U.S. military plan to wage a war on Iran.

“The claim of attacking Iran’s nuclear plants is made by the US and the Zionist regime to assess its global repercussions,” IRNA quoted Tabatabaei-Nejad as saying. Tabatabaei-Nejad said that the U.S. “has paid a heavy price for attacking Iran’s neighboring countries” and has got “stuck in the quagmire of Iraq and Afghanistan.”

Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps in Iran, said on Thursday the U.S. is fully aware of Iran’s defense capabilities and is not capable of carrying out its threats, according to Tehran Times. Jafari added that the enemy has stepped up its “soft war” against the Islamic Republic since they realize a military attack is not an option.
