Iran has begun digging mass graves in preparation for an American backed Israeli attack.
According to former Iranian General Hossein Kan’ani Moghadam in an interview with the Associated Press, the graves are located in Iran’s southwestern Khuzestan province.
Predictions as to Iran’s grave digging point to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the pressure he is feeling by the many sanctions placed on his country by the United Nations earlier this year. Which opens speculation to their wartime preparations.
One possibility that could lead to the use of such graves would be the idea of a ‘nuclear holocaust,’ according to former Cuban President Fidel Castro.
“If there’s an attack on Iran by Israel and the US, there’s no way to prevent it from becoming a nuclear war,” says Castro of the potential ‘worst-case scenario.’

For the Obama administration, the prospect of a nuclearized Iran is dismal to contemplate— it would create major new national-security challenges and crush the president’s dream of ending nuclear proliferation. But the view from Jerusalem is still more dire: a nuclearized Iran represents, among other things, a threat to Israel’s very existence. In the gap between Washington’s and Jerusalem’s views of Iran lies the question: who, if anyone, will stop Iran before it goes nuclear, and how? As Washington and Jerusalem study each other intensely, here’s an inside look at the strategic calculations on both sides—and at how, if things remain on the current course, an Israeli air strike will unfold.
