Everyone seems to be aware of this state secret so you and I may as well know about it…and Washington probably wants the info to get out that it’s brandishing a big stick while limping softly…
‘A Secret Afghanistan Mission Prepares for War with Iran,’ says a Washington Post article by William M. Arkin May 9, 2008:
Those predicting war with Iran or some Bush-Cheney October surprise attack on Tehran are constantly looking for signs of military preparations: a B-52 bomber that mistakenly takes off from North Dakota with nuclear-armed cruise missiles; a second or third aircraft carrier entering the Persian Gulf; a B-1 crashing in Qatar.
Since the most likely path to war with Iran is not Marines storming the beach but a strike on nuclear facilities and “regime” targets, signs such as these can often just be mirages. The true strike is not necessarily going to come with any warning, and the U.S. military has developed an entire system called “global strike” to implement such a preemptive strike. #
If you’ve missed it prior to this very moment, you can read Arkin’s article here:
Thanks go to Citizens for Legitmate Government for the heads-up on this article…LegitGov is a very good watchdog in a wasteland of press sorriness…
So here’s my existential question of the evening: is a watchdog standing guard same as a guard dog standing watch?
What’s the diff? Discuss while letting out the cat.
