US special forces 'inside Iran' (and 9 other middle east & asian coun tries) preparing the attacks
    #3637875 - 01/17/05 08:11 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Rumours....?

US commandos are operating inside Iran selecting sites for future air strikes, says the American investigative reporter Seymour Hersh.
In the New Yorker magazine, Hersh says intelligence officials have revealed that Iran is the Bush administration's "next strategic target".

American special forces units have been authorised to conduct covert operations in as many as 10 nations in the Middle East and South Asia.


The BBC's Justin Webb in Washington says that while Hersh could be wrong he has a series of scoops to his name, including the details of the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal last year.

His track record suggests that he should be taken seriously, our correspondent says.

Get ready for the continuing series of Gulf Wars!!!

I wouldn't be surprised if it were true.

I always thought that hawkish U.S. policy-makers were salivating over the thought of having troops on the western(Iraq) and eastern(Afghanistan) borders of Iran. Iran has been obviously pursuing or flirting with nuclear weapons(the case for this is much stronger than the Iraq WMD case ever was) for a while. They blatantly support Islamic extremism(by giving Hezbollah and Hamas money). Also, they are very hostile to the U.S. So, they are definately viewed as a legitimate target by U.S. hawks.

This whole middle eastern strategy of the Bush administration will either be a genius move of foreign policy or a complete disaster. Only time will tell which one it is.

It's looking pretty disastrous so far on most levels.

maybe this is just how it was meant to go though? An ardous campaign whose end receeds ahead of itself, but secures so much for the chosen ones. It was always gonna be a lot longer and harder than was made out.)

Of course the resources aquired may be good for the homeland economy and especially the 700 or so who pretty much own it.

Maybe in a few hundred years it'll all blow over.

no you are just thick - come on admit it.

Does the left hand know what the right hand is doing?

Where is the harm in finding out more about yourself as a nation or an individual.

How can you know your enemy without first knowing yourself?

When you find out something about your enemy, as a nation, you know them better.

When you find out something about yourself, as your nation, you know yourself better. :grin:

did you know these guys were in Iran?

I guess we could have guessed....

But at large it seems to me that people do not know the true motives of their government, and are won over with doublespeak that plays the heartstrings and runs on a tankful of manufactured fear.

and..if US intelligence can verify (or fabricate) the illegal presence of nuclear weapons in iran..then its a safe bet that bush will launch "nucular" weapons on iranian cities...

i disagree...the majority of working americans have been busting their asses for decades in return for the priveledge of operating an expensive..inefficient vehicle..and they couldnt care less if we have to nuke iran and kill tens of millions of innocent ppl in order to keep the gas affordable...fear of terrorism.."good vs evil"..etc are just an excuse..and a pathetic excuse at that...
