Russian intelligence reports indicate that the USarmed forces have in effect completed preparations for a possible militaryoperation against Iran,a source in the Russian forces structures has told RIA Novosti.

According to the source, the intelligence reports suggest that the United States has identified a list of possibletargets on the territory of Iran and, in thecourse of military exercises, has rehearsed the plan of the operation.

"According to Russian military intelligence reports, the US armed forces in the Gulf have virtuallycompleted preparations for a missile and bomb strike against the territory of Iran," the source said.

The UScommand, the source noted, will be ready to mount an attack in the first halfof April, probably April 6th. although the decision to start a militaryoperation must be taken by the USpolitical leadership.

 Iran faced with thethreat of a US militaryoperation over its refusal to abandon its nuclear programme; plus the level ofthe US military presence inthe region, which, according to US official data, is on a par with that at thetime of the US invasion of Iraq.

 The source did not rule out that in the event of a possible militaryoperation, following a missile strike and the assessment of damage to Iran'sarmed forces, as well as once the public and political situation in thatcountry after it has been attacked has been analysed, the Pentagon will take adecision on the start of a ground operation.

Earlier, a highly placed source in the Russian forces structures told RIANovosti in an interview that military intelligence had recently been in receiptof reports to indicate that the US armed forces had stepped up preparations forboth an air and ground operation against Iran.

"This has to do with the fact that the Pentagon is in search of themost acceptable plan for a strike against Iran,which would enable the USwith a minimum of losses to force that country on to its knees," theagency's source believes.
