Yeah, let's NUKE 'em...! (And the military chiefs are PISSED...!)
The [UK] Government [was] to hold secret talks with defence chiefs . . . to discuss possible military strikes against Iran.
because they believe...
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.
so, THAT story languished in the dustbins of u.s. media for a full friggin' week before we hear from a u.s. media source, seymour hersh in the new yorker, only NOW we're escalating to TACTICAL NUCLEAR WEAPONS...
One of the military’s initial option plans, as presented to the White House by the Pentagon this winter, calls for the use of a bunker-buster tactical nuclear weapon, such as the B61-11, against underground nuclear sites.
and this ain't just idle conversation either...
The Bush Administration, while publicly advocating diplomacy in order to stop Iran from pursuing a nuclear weapon, has increased clandestine activities inside Iran and intensified planning for a possible major air attack. Current and former American military and intelligence officials said that Air Force planning groups are drawing up lists of targets, and teams of American combat troops have been ordered into Iran, under cover, to collect targeting data and to establish contact with anti-government ethnic-minority groups.
the military chiefs are so pissed off they're talking about resigning, and who can blame 'em...?
The attention given to the nuclear option has created serious misgivings inside the offices of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, he added, and some officers have talked about resigning.
we're living a six-year, recurring, intensifying bad dream, but the only escape from THIS nightmare is going TO sleep, not waking up... too bad we can't just sleep through it all... if bush has his way, we're may all go PERMANENTLY to sleep...
