Ok, let me get this straight. Some reporter claims that President Obama, is thinking about attacking Iran as early as June. And people are buying
First of all, lets be realistic here. If the United States of America was going to level the proverbial musket at a nation, its would not be so
foolish as to announce the attack several months early. That would make no sense to anyone what so ever. Strategically speaking it would be suicidal,
especially if the nation that attracts its ire, is dangerous enough to be having a war with in the first place.
Second, the reportage is comming out of Israel, and while I have every respect for your average Israeli citizen (or at least those who respect the
same boundaries as the UN) I cannot say with any certainty that I trust the media machine there. Thier track record is so steeped in paranoia and
propeganda, that it is a wonder the newspaper offices dont all spontaneously combust under the weight of the BS they spew.
Now... I have no doubt that the idea of military action has been discussed on several occasions between the leader of Israel (the absolute example of
the broken record) and Mr Obama. I have no doubt that those discussions may have reached the point of hypothetical estimates of how long it would be
before the USA would be economically and physically ready to deploy its military might in that region. But I very much doubt that Obama has turned
around and expressly said "If Iran (insert desired change/activity worthy of punishment) then we can be ready by June, to put boots on the ground,
missiles in the cities, and frag the ever loving hell out of the entire place. Blood for the blood God, skulls for the throne of Khorne and all that
jazz. Right wheres the buffet table?"
I believe that this story, is either a total fabrication, or a deliberate misrepresentation of the truth.
One caveat, would I add for completeness sake. IF this turns out being even HALF accurate, then I have to say, this would be the biggest information
security cock up I have ever heard of, and someones head will roll for this. And I mean that in the most literal sense.
