Special report: Iran Nuclear Crisis

‘€The U.S. is planning to attack Iran's nuclear reactors and facilities by the end of April.
‘€The Times said that various White House departments have started preparing the speech.‘€The sources were quoted as saying that U.S. will not resort to a ground attack.

     KUWAIT CITY, April 4 (Xinhua) -- The United States is planning to attack Iran's nuclear reactors and other nuclear facilities by the end of this month, Kuwait-based daily Arab Times reported Wednesday.

    Citing anonymous sources in Washington, the Times said that various White House departments have already started preparing the political speech, which will be delivered by the U.S. president later this month, announcing the military attack on Iran.

    The speech will provide the "evidence" and the "justification" for the United States to resort to the military option after failing to persuade Tehran to give up its nuclear ambitions, said the report.

    According to the Times, one of the justifications expected to be provided in the speech is Iran's alleged role in the killing of American soldiers in Iraq by supporting various militias with both money and arms.

    The American president's speech will also point to Iran's political interference in the internal affairs of Iraq, obviously in cooperation with Syria, said the report.

    The sources were quoted as saying that U.S. will not resort to a ground attack in order to avoid human losses under a plan to achieve their aims by air attacks.
