War With Iran Might Be Closer Than You Think

There is considerable speculation and buzz in Washington today suggesting that the National Security Council has agreed in principle to proceed with plans to attack an Iranian al-Qods-run camp that is believed to be training Iraqi militants. The camp that will be targeted is one of several located near Tehran. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates was the only senior official urging delay in taking any offensive action. The decision to go ahead with plans to attack Iran is the direct result of concerns being expressed over the deteriorating situation in Lebanon, where Iranian ally Hezbollah appears to have gained the upper hand against government forces and might be able to dominate the fractious political situation.

This "limited" strike against the Iranian military will be seen as an attack on the Iranian state.

Thus far there is no evidence that the Iranians have directly intervened inside Iraq, Lebanon or anywhere else for that matter. I fear that the ultimate aim for this strike is as a precursor to a massive false flag attack that will be staged in some location inside the US - a second 911 designed to give the US an excuse to bomb Iranian nuclear facilities, extend their military influence in the Middle East and bring about repressive security measures at home.

This scenario can be completely averted if US authorities move to arrest Bush, Cheney and other individuals who authorised the illegal invasion of Iraq, the torture and various crimes related to the "War on Terror".
