FOLLOWING A STATEMENT from a United States Admiral regarding an alleged US contingency plan to invade Iran, Tehran has responded by digging mass graves for American soldiers.

US Admiral Mike Mullen said last week that the American military has a plan to attack Iran if necessary – however, he did stress that this was not a desirable option.

Iranian General Hossein Kan’ani Moghadam, said graves have been dug in Iran’s southwestern Khuzestan province, near where the state buried Iraqi soldiers killed during the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980′s.

“The mass graves that used to be for burying Saddam’s soldiers have now been prepared again for US soldiers,” Moghadam told the Associated Press,”This is the reason for digging this big number of graves.”

The friction between Iran and western powers has been intensifying lately, following a forth round of sanctions applied to Tehran by the United Nations over the country’s nuclear programme.

The US has claimed that Iran is developing a nuclear weapon, but Tehran insists that it is enriching uranium for energy and medicinal purposes.
