The thing that depresses me more than the possibility of the US invading Iran, is that a large chunk of the blind, 'patriotic' Americans will support the invasion.
"Gur hyuck, lets get us more of dem towelhead a-rabs'.

The ultimate fear, as previewed by right wing neocon hack Bill Kristol, will be the implied threat to attack Iran if it appears that Obama will decisively win in November ~ which is becoming more and more likely.
The likely scenario, which I feel will happen, perhaps before November, will be an air strike by Israel against Iran which will be followed by a massive American strike against Iran ~ after Iran retaliates against Israel.
Bush's justification will be protecting Israel and the spineless Democrats will loudly bluster and fold as the Cheney/Bush war machine continues to roll on ~ playing the fear card until it is called.

CNN is way behind in reporting as usual. Covert operations have been going on for almost a year.
Myself and others have stated an attack on Iran is planned in July and will most likely occur next month.

Well guys, I'm off to Israel today.
My dad has a computer over there so I'll be able to check back in.
I'm going to talk to him some about this whole situation and see what a regular Israeli civilian thinks is going to happen and what the news is over there.
They're usually right.

Well, not so covert any more eh? What would people in Iran say reading that? What if the situation were reversed? Would people in US tolerate there stuff being spied on, i doubt it. But Iran doesn't particularly want war, neither i think do US in general just the neocons trying to make things happen as per usual, oh well they'll be out of office soon having made the world a far more dangerous place and setting the middle east peace process back 50 years
he Bush administration has launched a "significant escalation" of covert operations in Iran, sending U.S. commandos to spy on the country's nuclear facilities and undermine the Islamic republic's government, journalist Seymour Hersh said Sunday.
