From the Washington Post, we have the article Iran, perceiving threat from West, willing to attack on U.S. soil, U.S. intelligence report finds
U.S. intelligence agencies believe that Iran is prepared to launch terrorist attacks inside the United States in response to perceived threats from America and its allies, the U.S. spy chief said Tuesday.
This may be what the U.S. intelligence chief may be saying to the public, but we know from past history that this may bear little resemblance to what the intelligence analysts actually believe. I am waiting for Seymour Hersch or Gareth Porter to come out with a report on what the intelligence experts really think.
Actually, this perceived threat seems to be our government’s fondest hope. They seem to be desperately looking for an excuse to attack Iran. Perhaps if they can escalate the threats to Iran, they can get Iran to act on those threats and try to do a preemptive first strike on us.
If Iran refuses to attack us by midyear in time for Israel to launch an attack on Iran, perhaps we can just make up an attack on us. Latest reports (see Israeli Officials: Attack on Iran Must Come ‘By Summer’) have Israel afraid that if they wait too long, Iran will have all its nuclear facilities underground and safe from Israeli attacks. How many Americans is Obama ready to kill so that he can have the Bush excuse for attacking Iran?
