I think he means them, and that if something drastic does not happen relatively soon, the US will launch a major air strike against Iranian nuclear facilities; sooner rather than later.

If Whiteman AFB goes quiet, it'd be time to get worried.
Curses, now I'm feeling moderately paranoid. Can't be good.
