Last week the Jerusalem Post reported that a Bush aide made a remark that suggested the U.S. will attack Iran. The White House then responded with all the defensiveness of a four year old child on a massive temper-tantrum. Now we have the Asia Times reporting the same thing, only with a timetable. There's a chance we could see the morons at 1600 Pennsylvania pull off another international catastrophe before the end of the summer.
Asia Times is reporting that “a retired US career diplomat and former assistant secretary of state still active in the foreign affairs community” are alleging that the Bush administration “plans to launch an air strike against Iran within the next two months” :
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.
How utterly ridiculous would that be. If Bush tries to push us off that cliff, he better expect hell to pay.
