Washington has been hinting recently that President Obama and his aides are considering launching a pinpoint attack on Iran’s nuclear installations even before the November 6 presidential elections.

An article suggesting this is the case was published in the credible Foreign Policy magazine, which has reliable sources within the administration.

Meanwhile, similar remarks are being heard from people who are close to the White House and the Pentagon. According to these sources, who currently visiting the Middle East, the US has a plan of action in place for an aerial bombardment of a number of Iranian nuclear sites, and the preparations for such an operation have already been completed.

According to one of the American sources, such an attack can be launched “at any moment.”

It is safe to assume that these statements and hints are aimed at making it clear to the Iranians that their foot-dragging on the nuclear issue may cost them dearly. The American government wants to let the Iranians know that if they continue to stall for time, the US may act even before the elections. An American strike on Iran would not hurt Obama’s chances of getting reelected because the full effect of the increase in the price of oil would not be felt until after the elections.
