Bachmann Says ‘Pentagon Should Prepare a War Plan’ for Iran
<snip>

"The “Pentagon should prepare a war plan” to handle an ascendant Iran in possession of a nuclear weapon, GOP contender Michele Bachmann said today, at a dinner hosted by a pro-Israel group in New York City.

Bachmann stopped short of advocating for a pre-emptive strike on Iran by Israel or the United States, saying “only a fool wishes for war,” but advocated for a naval blockade of Iranian ports, increased intelligence operations against Iran and “crushing economic sanctions.”

“The Pentagon should prepare a war plan, as a last resort, should all else fail in preventing Iran from getting nuclear weapons,” she said.

Speaking before the Zionist Organization of America, the oldest pro-Israel group in the United States, Bachmann said her first foreign policy directive on Day 1 of her presidency would be recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Bachmann said Israel should not cede any land — “not one acre, not one square foot, not one inch” — to the Palestinians in order to make peace."

3. Hell, they probably have a dozen against Canada.
Suggesting the Pentagon needs to start thinking about something like that as opposed to assuming it's been done for ages just shows how disconnected she is from the real world. (Well, that and she's just pandering to the crowd, of course.)

4. As if the Pentagon doesn't have a contingency plan for every country on Earth
It's what the Pentagon does. It's all they do there. Of course they have a war plan for Iran.

This is more ignorance from a woman who's in way over her head, even as a congresswoman.

10. um ... is she that dumb that
she doesn't believe that there already is a "War Plan" prepared, not just for Iran, but for every place on Earth, in case they turn on us?

Oh, I forgot ... she doesn't have to believe it ... just the people who can't see the crazy written all over her ... they're the ones who need to believe it ...
