While Most Of Big Media Stares At Britney’s Head, BushCo Ramps Up The Iran Attack Plans

Posted by Phoenix Woman on February 22, 2007

From the BBC via Attytood:

US contingency plans for air strikes on Iran extend beyond nuclear sites and include most of the country’s military infrastructure, the BBC has learned.

Here’s the part that’s really interesting:

BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner says the trigger for such an attack reportedly includes any confirmation that Iran was developing a nuclear weapon – which it denies. Alternatively, our correspondent adds, a high-casualty attack on US forces in neighbouring Iraq could also trigger a bombing campaign if it were traced directly back to Tehran.

That’s why BushCo is so desperate to “prove” that the Shiite mullahs running Iran are behind the insurgency, even when it’s clear to everyone who’s been paying attention that it’s the Sunnis and Baathists who have by far been doing most of the attacks on US troops in Iraq.

    With the election just around the corner and the next president being inaugurated in three months, I guess it’s time to admit that you were wrong, huh?

    I’d rather wait until the next president is inaugurated before closing the books on the present one, Fistic.

    As for being wrong, well, PW is quoting the BBC. Maybe you should take your case to them.

  3. Fistulandulus, see the date on that post? A lot has happened since then. Do try to keep up.
