Indeed, the information provided by this expert goes so far as to affirm that a secret assassination unit belonging to Hizballah received training on such operations at the Imam Ali Camp near Tehran and that some reports went so far as to indicate that the official who would be targeted is US Vice President Dick Cheney.
It seems that selecting Cheney for assassination was for two reasons. The first is logistical; namely, the difficulty of targeting the US President in view of the protection measures around him. The second is political and is due to the Iranian leadership's conviction that the man behind the planning of wars against Iran is the vice president who leads the US hard-line current and who is supervising the entire project of changing regimes in the region
One phase is the phase of preparation by the Unites States to pressure Iran.
The second phase is the phase in which the United States would attempt to sell the people of the U.S. as well as the world that something needs to be done about Iran.
The idea will be to create a crisis, so that the people believe something has to be done [...]
The third phase would be the phase of doing it.

I agree with that, assassinating would have both a much bigger impact on the American people and its government, and thus would cause a lot of despair and panic among the people.
Security experts and research centers that are close to the neo-conservatives and the White House hawks soon joined the intensive secret efforts of the FBI and the CIA to uncover the size of Hizballah's infiltration of the United States and warn of plots by the Iranian intelligence to use these Hizballah networks, which have been dormant for years, to carry out operations of revenge and retaliation on US territory.
Some experts agree that these operations are within the Iranian response to overt operations that the US and British special forces are implementing inside Iran. Therefore, these experts fear that this would be a prelude to transferring the war directly to Britain and the United States through secret operations carried out by extremist organizations working for the Iranian intelligence.

Anyone who remembers how intelligence was distorted to justify the invasion of Iraq will recognise an identical pattern here.
Please wake up, you dozy lot. It's happening again and lots of you are falling for it. I don't want my country to get dragged into another illegal war that will make my country a terrorist priority and that will get thousands of innocent Iranians killed.
"Our revolution's main mission is to pave the way for the reappearance of the 12th Imam, the Mahdi," Ahmadinejad said in the speech to Friday Prayers leaders from across the country.
Ahmadinejad refers to the return of the 12th Imam, also known as the Mahdi, in almost all his major speeches since he took office in August.
Founded in 1953 and used by the Shah of Iran to try to eradicate followers of the Bahai faith, the Hojjatieh Society is governed by the conviction that the 12th Imam's return will be hastened by the creation of chaos on earth
