  •  Bush is expecting a TERRORIST ATTACK (9+ / 0-)

    In Washington it is hardly a secret that the same people in and around the administration who brought you Iraq are preparing to do the same for Iran. The Pentagon, acting under instructions from Vice President Dick Cheney’s office, has tasked the United States Strategic Command (STRATCOM) with drawing up a contingency plan to be employed in response to another 9/11-type terrorist attack on the United States. The plan includes a large-scale air assault on Iran employing both conventional and tactical nuclear weapons. Within Iran there are more than 450 major strategic targets, including numerous suspected nuclear-weapons-program development sites. Many of the targets are hardened or are deep underground and could not be taken out by conventional weapons, hence the nuclear option. As in the case of Iraq, the response is not conditional on Iran actually being involved in the act of terrorism directed against the United States. Several senior Air Force officers involved in the planning are reportedly appalled at the implications of what they are doing—that Iran is being set up for an unprovoked nuclear attack—but no one is prepared to damage his career by posing any objections.

    American Conservative is not the only source for this. It has also been reporteD in The New Yorker and the Washington Post

    Bush is CURRENTLY placing the military assets for the nuclear attack on Iran, and he is engaged in a propaganda efforts to feed FALSE stories to the press.

    Rep. Conyers, British military bomb experts in Iraq DO NOT AGREE that the advanced IEDs in Iraq come from Iran. There is NO EVIDENCE that Iran is shipping arms clandestinely into Iraq. The accounts of soldiers being murdered by "Iranian agents" are unsupported, unsubstantiated, and different accounts conflict on basic facts.

    But this is the BIG LIE: Bush said two days ago in an interview that "Iran INSISTS on developing nuclear weapons." That is BLATANTLY FALSE. Iran has a program to make nuclear reactor fuel for sale on the international market. There IS NO CONFIRMATION of ANY claims that they are developing nuclear weapons. There are 150 international inspectors in Iran monitoring their nuclear program.

    I want you to remember what happened the last time this president BRAZENLY LIED about a nuclear threat to our country.

    I doubt that the terrorist attack that Bush is WAITING FOR can be stopped, once he is ready to attack Iran. What's keeping the "terrorists" on his timeline? I doubt that Bush's nuclear attack on Iran can be stopped.


    Bush has said he plans to go ahead with his war plans in April. I doubt many members of Congress are aware that the plan I cite above is the plan he is currently putting into operation. If true, we have possibly WEEKS before the so-called "terrorist attack" that will launch his Iran War Plan.
