Fire In The Hole


by pessimist

This is going too far, and has to come to a stop some time.

The Telegraph is reporting that secret talks discussing attacking Iran will occur Monday between the US and British commands:

A high-level meeting will take place in the Ministry of Defence at which senior defence chiefs and government officials will consider the consequences of an attack on Iran.

It is believed that an American-led attack, designed to destroy Iran's ability to develop a nuclear bomb, is "inevitable" if Teheran's leaders fail to comply with United Nations demands to freeze their uranium enrichment programme.

Tomorrow's meeting will be attended by Gen Sir Michael Walker, the chief of the defence staff, Lt Gen Andrew Ridgway, the chief of defence intelligence and Maj Gen Bill Rollo, the assistant chief of the general staff, together with officials from the Foreign Office and Downing Street.

The United States government is hopeful that the military operation will be a multinational mission, but defence chiefs believe that the Bush administration is prepared to launch the attack on its own or with the assistance of Israel, if there is little international support.
British military chiefs believe an attack would be limited to a series of air strikes against nuclear plants - a land assault is not being considered at the moment.

It is understood that any direct British involvement in an attack would be limited but may extend to the use of the RAF's highly secret airborne early warning aircraft.

Going to have your cake and eat it too, eh Tony?

This is all we need - another war.

Economically, the nation can't afford another war. It isn't going to end after 'Shock and Awe II'. The mullahs all over Islamia will be able to make the claim that this latest attack is designed to put all Muslims under Western control, and it would be hard to refute that claim since only Muslim countries ever seem to be the recipients of Bu$hCo 'luv'. When is he going to go after Turkey? Or Saudi Arabia?

And if Israel is involved? Oh vey! The furor over the Mohammad cartoons will look like a Sunday picnic. That should end the relative peace between Israel and the Palestinians! Netanyahu is already planning to topple the new government and take over, I'm sure!

Osama is celebrating tonight, folks, for very soon, George will be delivering all of Islamia into his hands - and all of the new recruits necessary to carry out his end of the war that George insists on having.

Watch for the draft - the other options have already been exhausted.
