Well, a "bipartisan policy center" in which the foreign policy advisor of Obama plays a role has produced the following paper: http://www.bipartisanpolicy.org/ht/a/GetDocumentAction/i/8448 The highlights: The president is to immidiatly increase the military presence in the gulf, parallel, Iran will get the offer of a negotiation. However, this negotiation will be, as I read it, the stating of an Ultimatum. The kind of controll regime the US wants to install seems to be appropriate for something one can do with a defeated oppoenent, it is unlikely Iran will agree. After suitably using the Iranian refusal to gain public support, the plan calls for a financial and economic blockade, including a sea blockade of the persian gulf as well as a potential air blockade (blowing up freighters) of the Kaspian sea. Both would cleary be acts of war under international law, since both would also result in an immidiate Iranian reaction, a Casus Belli would not be hard to come by. The military aspect is laid out with almost no detail at all, and can be summed up as "bomb", "bomb more", "bomb even more" and, if they dont capitulate, maybe "nuke". The report makes some outrageous claims about Iran getting Nukes in 18 days, which is so retarded that its not even worth complaining. Even the authors agree that, under their calculations, Iran would need about 12 times the centrifuges it has to be even close to that estimate. Well, invest money in military suppliers, theyll get some new orders soon.
