A critical challenge for this policy (American airstrikes) option is that, absent a clear Iranian act of aggression, American airstrikes against Iran would be unpopular in the region and throughout the world.
Especially in the absence of a clear Iranian provocation, averting this paradoxical danger would be a major task for U.S. diplomats in the run-up to such an air campaign
The truth is that these all would be challenging cases to make. For that reason, it would be far more preferable if the United States could cite an Iranian provocation as justification for the airstrikes before launching them. Clearly, the more outrageous, the more deadly, and the more unprovoked the Iranian action, the better off the United States would be.
Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood has accused the Israeli spy agency Mossad of being behind Sunday's attack on an Egyptian checkpoint on the border with Israel.
Israel's foreign ministry has dismissed the allegation as "nonsense".
The attack left 16 Egyptian security officers dead. Israeli forces say they later killed at least seven gunmen who broke through into Israel.
Israeli and Egyptian officials have blamed the attack on Islamist militants.
A statement on the Muslim Brotherhood's website said the incident "can be attributed to the Mossad".
It said Israel had carried out the attack in an attempt to undermine the government of Egypt's Islamist President, Mohammed Mursi.
The allegation was echoed by Hamas, the Palestinian offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood that governs Gaza.

Thank you for putting together your research; I just get a little iffy when people start saying Zionism and Israel again and again... I know the Israeli government is as corrupt as ours, we made it didnt we. But NWO, the banking all that needs to be addressed on a careful level, for instance my mother is relatively open-minded about stuff like this but is still in the "we need to protect Israel mindset" as I was trying to explain how we shouldn't be involved in the middle east at all anymore, it isn't our war and it never was, but then again every great empire falls because it spreads itself too thin. She was like "oh a lot of people your age feel that way about Israel now" and was making comments about Germany...pissed me off so effin much, my high school bff was Jewish. We worked in a restaurant together owned by arabs, christians but they still are like "Free Palestine" so yeah, but besides some off color jokes everyone got along fine! Her and I even went to their Christmas party, lol hookah galore :p We were young but it all seems so much more tense now, like I doubt they could be as cool now with each other. Well her and I aren't but that's another story...
I just don't wanna be seen as some white supremacist (doesn't help that I'm naturally blonde & blue eyed either) and I have a feeling that is what they will try to call opponents of NWO.
I just see TPTB trying to divide....start race wars, class wars, even fat versus skinny wars haha. I don't know your personal beliefs and I'm definately not calling you a racist, just the whole thingedit on 16-8-2012 by girlwithkaleidoscope3eyes because: light profanity
