No wonder Bush is not willing to get our troops out of Iraq. He is ramping up and already authorizing troop secret incursions into Iran. With this new Condi approved strategy of pre-emptive invasions, no doubt, we will be crossing the line from Iraq to Iran very soon.
Many have predicted this, but now we know for sure. Like Cambodia in the Vietnam conflict, we are going where we dare not tread with covert special ops taking the lead. At least we know for sure that Iran has nuclear weapons capacity and the will to use it.
The United States has been conducting secret reconnaissance missions inside Iran to help identify potential nuclear, chemical and missile targets, The New Yorker magazine reported Sunday.
The article, by award-winning reporter Seymour Hersh, said the secret missions have been going on at least since last summer with the goal of identifying target information for three dozen or more suspected sites. Hersh quotes one government consultant with close ties to the Pentagon as saying, "The civilians in the Pentagon want to go into Iran and destroy as much of the military infrastructure as possible."
I predict that before we are finished with the next four years of Bushit we will be moving troops from Iraq to Iran. The Jihad has only just begun.
