Beijing, Nov.14 (People's Daily Online) --It is said that the U.S. Department of Defense has submitted a plan to attack Iran with military force. Will the United States and Israel really carry out military operations against Iran at this time or are they just bluffing to pressure Iran?

After strictly, comprehensively and reliably assessing a great amount of information, the International Atomic Energy Agency believes Iran indeed organically and systematically carried out activities related to developing nuclear weapons at least before the end of 2003, according to the latest report on the nuclear issue inside Iran published by the agency on Nov. 8.

The United States believed that report was the most comprehensive and specific assessment report on Iran's nuclear development situation and it brought up many doubts on the nature of Iran's nuclear plan. Without question, this report probably will determine the future trend of the nuclear issue of Iran and even turn into a pretext for the United States and Israel to attack Iran.

On Nov. 6, Israeli President Shimon Peres declared in public that, given the current state of diplomacy, an attack on Iran with military force is becoming increasingly likely. In addition, according to media reports, the Israeli Premier Benjamin Netanyahu and the Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak have started gathering views on the matter from members of the Knesset, Israel's parliament, and repeatedly require that Israel should strike Iran first to gain the initiative.

Meanwhile, the military of Israel recently carried out a ballistic missile experiment and a large-scale civil defense drill to deal with possible traditional and non-traditional missile assaults. Besides, the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State in charge of military and political affairs Andrew Shapiro said that the United States and Israel will jointly carry out the largest military drill of history in which more than 5,000 soldiers of the two countries will participate.
