The American government is planning a military strike on Iran, including bombing its nuclear reactor, according to an investigative report due to be published next week in The New Yorker magazine.

According to the report, which quotes a former senior CIA official, President George Bush and his administration see in Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad "a new Adolf Hitler."

A senior Pentagon advisor, quoted in the article, said that the White House was convinced the only way to solve the problem would be to change the balance of power with Iran through war.

Another former senior official in the American defense establishment said that the United States was planning a series of ongoing bombing operations against Iran that would humiliate its religious leadership and lead its people to replace their government.


The report comes shortly after the failure of talks between the United States and Iran over the future of Iraq, according to a source in the Iranian embassy in Baghdad, Israel Radio reported. Nevertheless, the source commented, it was hoped that the discussions would recommence after the establishment of a new government in Iraq.

Two days ago, a source in the embassy said that discussions between the United States and Iran would begin next week in Baghdad. The discussions between the governments were intended to aid in the formation of a new Iraqi government, to hasten the American pullout from the country and to advance security between Iran and Iraq.

A nice diversion to get the American's attention away from the illegal immigration issue.
