BOMB IRAN, INCREASE TERRORISM

Fixer at Alternate Brain has a post up this morning about a "meeting" that's going to take place between government officals and military experts for the fomulation of a plan for the bombing of Iran's nuclear facilities. Here's the link to the post: Done deal?

I think we all know by now how these "meetings" work. There's no discussion....everyone gets told what's going to happen.

And after it happens, the terrorism around the world...especially against the US and it's interests...will increase dramatically. The threat of that has already been made. So much for Bush's ideas of how to keep us safe.

From the Washington Post via the Boston Globe:

Iran terror response seen to US strike: Wash Post

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Iran would respond to U.S. military strikes against its nuclear sites with global attacks by intelligence operatives and Hezbollah teams, The Washington Post reported in an article on its Web site on Saturday, citing unnamed "intelligence and terrorism experts."

Iran would attack U.S. targets in Iraq and there is "growing consensus that Iran's agents would target civilians in the United States, Europe and elsewhere," The Post said.

"U.S. officials would not discuss what evidence they have indicating Iran would undertake terrorist action," it said.

But the article quoted one "senior official" as saying that the matter is "a huge issue" and another saying it "is consuming a lot of time" in the U.S. intelligence apparatus.

Intelligence officials declined to say whether they have detected "preparatory measures" by Iran's foreign-based operatives, such as more surveillance, counter-surveillance or message traffic, The Post said.

The Post article comes amid increased international tension over Iran's nuclear program, which some nations say is aimed at building atomic bombs. Iran says the program is civilian.

Here we go again. Another run-up to war built on lies and deception. Out kids as targets.
