Iran prepares mass graves for US soldiers

Speculation of a possible US and Israel military attack against Iran has pushed Tehran to take a rather unexpected counter-move.

A former deputy of Iranian Revolutionary Guard commander, Gen. Hossein Kan'ani Moghadam, has said mass graves have already been prepared for U.S. troops.

It followed comments by America's top military leader last week that there was a contingency plan to attack the Islamic republic.

The graves have been dug in the southwestern Khuzestan province of the country where Iraqi soldiers were buried during the war between the Islamic republic and Iraq, when headed by Saddam Hussein, in 1980-1988.

Gen. Hossein Kan'ani Moghadam warned that in case the US decides to make an assault on Iran, the latter would strike the American bases in the Persian Gulf.

Earlier, Adm. Mike Mullen, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, announced that the US had elaborated a plan of attack on Iran, though he considers a military option for the Iranian problem not a good idea.
