Name of historical US Plans to attack Iran?


Recommended Posts

I remember reading a wikipedia article a long time ago about a planned operation for US navy to attack Iran. From what I remember it was a specific US general who was strongly in favor of it, but the President refused it and it never amounted to anything. I don't remember the exact time but I'm fairly certain it was during the cold war era.


Does anyone know what this operation was called? I remember thinking it would make a good scenario for DCS when the Persian gulf map came out, but now I can't find it at all.

I appreciate the links, genuinely but I'm almost certain it wasn't those. From how I remember it, it was plans to start a carrier based air war against Iran similar to what was waged against Vietnam. Championed by a overzealous admiral or General (I forget).
