Iranian officials today issued letters to the United Nations complaining about the repeated threats by US officials to launch a military attack on Iran. The letters cited Admiral Michael Mullen’s announcement earlier this month that the military had developed “plans” to launch such an attack.
Iran’s acting UN Ambassador Eshagh Alehabib reiterated that the Iranian civilian nuclear program is strictly civilian in nature and that it is not, despite US claims to the contrary, a plot to develop nuclear weapons.
Mullen had announced the plans on NBC, declaring that the option to attack Iran remained “an important option.” Iran has promised to retaliate in the event that the US or anyone else attacks them.
Reports on an impending attack on Iran have grown in recent days, with Iran about to launch a civilian energy plant. Though harmless in and of itself, the launch of the plant would make an attack considerably less convenient, spreading radioactive waste across Iran and likely sparking international outcry.

What's amazing to consider that for the US or Israel to attack Iran, in an unjustified and unprovoked act of aggression, wouldn't in and of itself spark international outcry. That's how used we've gotten to Hegemonic impunity, and how used the world has gotten to it.
But note that Iran doesn't sit on its hands. It tries as hard as it can to use appropriate international levers to defend itself, even if those levers are often controlled by its wouldbe aggressors.
UN is a tool created, financed and CONTROLLED by US to give it a veneer of legitimacy for criminal and aggressive behavior. It is a bigger joke the League of Nation.
Also American rightist and Israeli propaganda complain about UN saying that countries behave according with their oil interests and so they are sycophants to Arab states.Judging objectively,US has the greater influence at UN but even so history marked dozens of votes in which UN vote was 150 (or more) countries in one side and US,Israel,New Papua,Ins.Marchall,ins.Bikini,Micronesia in the opposite side.I think that these votes are a mirror of reality and that make the role of UN important even UN has not a real role in international policy and remains an US's instrument
And exactly why were German Nazis hanged after WWII? – of – 'for waging aggressive warfare"?
And the difference between "waging aggressive warfare" vs "waging preemptive warfare" against countries that have neither threatened nor attacked the U.S. or Israel is?
And exactly why is the world NOT upset by the waging of war by the U.S. and Israel?
The US has a history of picking fights with far weaker countries, but with abilities to counter unjust US agression. An attack on Iran will further expose the inept US military, and will lead to more horrible crimes perpetuated by the US. Enough is enough already. Go home Uncle Sam..with your tail between your legs…
Just be prepared Iran, just be prepared.
