George W Bush Has Plans For Air Strike On Iran By August
Pakistan Daily ^ | May 27, 2008

Posted on 05/27/2008 9:22:31 AM PDT by Fennie

The George W Bush administration plans to launch an air strike against Iran within the next two months, an informed source tell, echoing other reports that have surfaced in the media in the United States recently.

Two key US senators briefed on the attack planned to go public with their opposition to the move, according to the source, but their projected New York Times op-ed piece has yet to appear.

The source, a retired US career diplomat and former assistant secretary of state still active in the foreign affairs community, speaking anonymously, said last week that the US plans an air strike against the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC). The air strike would target the headquarters of the IRGC's elite Quds force. With an estimated strength of up to 90,000 fighters, the Quds stated mission is to spread Iran's revolution of 1979 throughout the region...

What, again? If all of these rumors were accurate, we’d have had a steady stream of bombers hitting Iran for more than a year now.

How ironic! I just spoke with a friend whose second cousin is married to a garbage man in Iran whose sister knows the third cousin of an unnamed source in Iran who says Iran has planned a preemptive strike on Washington, DC, next Tuesday at 4PM. Now the questions is: Whose source is more reliable?

From the article: That would explain why two veteran senators, one Republican and one Democrat, were reportedly so horrified at the prospect.

Anyone who would believe that we would leak military plans like this is too stupid to for his own good.
If we do hit Iran then I sincerely hope that the first strike will be atomic.

No point in even trying to have a foreign policy when your entire administration is crawling with cockroaches who leak to the media anything you even plan for as a contingency.

At since the leaks have been effectively kneecapping W since his first term with no sign of punishment to the offenders, W had turned over his foreign policy to his own critics. Brilliant!!

So much for his naive ‘turn the other cheek’ approach to partisan politics. Not likely to ever see a democrat making the mistake of trying appeasement on the partisan front (like they do with the dictator and terrorist fronts).

While I believe that our brave Troops are doing a brilliant job, I hold that we will never win any war, until our country is willing, and able, to bring to justice the enemy within.

The way espionage laws are written and enforced in the US, if you give secrets directly to the ENEMY, then you are guilty. BUT, if you disclose it to the MEDIA, and allow them to publicize it to the enemy, then you are in the clear. Fair or not, that is the law.

I don’t buy the timeline. I think if Bush is planning to hit Iran, it would be done between the November elections and Inaguration day.

That’s where my money is.

I would not put to much belief in this story.
If there was going to be any action against Iran by the US i.e. time, date, were, our military and president Bush would not tell us... the MSM would.
Remember the D-day invasion ? the time, date, and were were a very closely guarded secret.
If anything, this could be a mis-information to trow off the enemy and keep them guessing.
I can only guess, since if a Democrat President would not deal with Iran, I guess take a good guess that President Bush will do something before he leaves office next January..... that gives us 8 months do deal with Iran.
