A Raid on Iran?

It looks like we may be planning do something about Iran:

'US planning strike against Iran'


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
JPost.com Staff, THE JERUSALEM POST Dec. 31, 2005

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The United States government reportedly began coordinating with NATO its plans for a possible military attack against Iran.

The German newspaper Der Tagesspiegel collected various reports from the German media indicating that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization are examining the prospects of such a strike.

According to the report, CIA Director Porter Goss, in his last visit to Turkey on December 12, requested Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to provide military bases to the United States in 2006 from where they would be able to launch an assault.

The German news agency DDP also noted that countries neighboring Iran, such as Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman, and Pakistan were also updated regarding the supposed plan. American sources sent to those countries apparently mentioned an aerial attack as a possibility, but did not provide a time frame for the operation.

Although Der Spiegel could not say that these plans were concrete, they did note that according to a January 2005 New Yorker report American forces had entered Iran in 2005 in order to mark possible targets for an aerial assault.

Iran and North Korea have both been making me nervous for a long time. They seem to take turns poking us in the eye, and making threats, so it seems inevitable that something will have to be done eventually.

I am concerned that Iran will be joined by Syria, and we will at long last see the proof of where Saddam's WMDs were hidden.

My thoughts may seem somewhat naive with all that we have learned since 9/11, but I just do not understand why so many liberal Americans refuse to face facts, and it leaves me feeling less than secure.

We are so powerful that we can announce a plan to attack and the enemy will still be powerless to stop it. Then we should make the entire country a no fly zone and arm the people who want to rebel. I love it when a plan comes together.

BTW I got comment moderation so I do not have to use that silly type the letters in the picture in order to post. It has worked wonderfully.
