That according to Debka Files:
of Defense Leon Panetta has been outspoken about a possible Israeli offensive against Iran taking place as of April and one American TV channel theorized simplistically Friday, Feb. 3, about Israel's tactics. At the same time, no US source is leveling on the far more extensive American, Saudi, British, French and Gulf states' preparations going forward for an offensive against the Islamic Republic.
Tehran too is gearing up for conflict: The Iranian Guards Ground Forces chief Brig. Gen. Mohammad Pakpour Saturday, Feb. 4 announced the start of a three-week exercise in southern Iran and the Strait of Hormuz under conditions of war. debkafile: The "exercise" is in fact an Iranian military buildup ahead of a possible American or Israel attack.
debkafile's military sources report a steady flow of many thousands of US troops for some weeks to two strategic islands within reach of Iran, Oman's Masirah just south of the Strait of Hormuz and Socotra, between Yemen and the Horn of Africa. (DEBKA-Net-Weekly 526 of Jan. 27 was the first world publication to reveal the massive concentration of American might on the two islands.)
What will be the target to trigger the war? Another 9/11 attack? No, too obvious. Bombing the USS Enterprise or fleet in the Gulf? Again too obvious. What about religion? This may sound tinfoilish, but what about sending hundreds of brainwashed Saudi into Israel strapped with dirty bombs and blowing themselves up? But where would one find hundreds of thousands Israeli gathered in one spot? Here
Israel's labor federation demands government lower cost of living
Occupy Israel! Saudi Arabia is allies with Israel and the Saudis couldn't care less about Iran let alone the Palestinians, therefore, send hundreds of religious crazed mentally ill folks to Israel and watch the destruction happen? Then blame Iran and off to war we go. According to Debka, Britain and France is there, while the U.S. is in the Gulf and when the suicide happens? It's war time. Impossible? Does Pearl Harbor sound similar? Gulf of Tonkin? Operation: Northwoods? If the U.S. would do it, what's stopping the right wingers in Israel? Absolutely nothing. And the folks from www.raptureready.com will be up in the hills screaming: RAPTURE ME JEEBUS! We are in deep trouble.
