Claim USIran - U.S. Attacks Iran

The Claim

Before January 21, 2009, the United States attacks Iran. For this claim to be judged true, U.S. military forces must engage Iranian targets at the direction of the U.S. President.

Some events that would satisfy this claim:

  • The U.S. launches an air strike on Iran's nuclear facilities.
  • The U.S. launches a surgical strike of "decapitation" on members of the Iranian leadership.
  • The U.S. launches a full-scale invasion of Iran.
  • Iran attacks the U.S. or one of its allies, and the U.S. responds with military force.

Note that the U.S. President must specifically premeditate and order this operation. An automatic response by U.S. forces to an Iranian action in a single incident would not constitute sufficient conditions for this claim to be judged TRUE.

Some events that would NOT satisfy this claim:

  • An Iranian aircraft enters prohibited airspace, and is shot down by U.S. forces.
  • Iranian soldiers fire on U.S. soldiers, and the U.S. soldiers immediately return fire.
  • A rogue general orders a military attack without prior authorization from the U.S. President.

Iran is one of three nations comprising the "axis of evil". The other two are Iraq and North Korea. The United States launched a military attack on Iraq on March 19, 2003.

Judge's Statement

If there is any ambiguity, I will judge this claim by the intent of the claim.
