(August 8, 2006) — Multiple military sources have told the Global Network that Pentagon personnel responsible for selecting targets for cruise missile first-strike attacks have been sent to Israel.
This indicates that US and Israeli military strategists are now likely meeting to plan a join attack on Syria and/or Iran.
The Persian Gulf war and the 2003 US invasion of Iraq both began with cruise missile attacks by the US from Naval ships.
It would be wise to recognize that George W. Bush has decided to expand the current war and chaos into the entire Middle East region. The implications for the US will be enormous.
Israel’s recent bombing of Lebanon near the Syrian border indicate that they are trying to draw a response from Syria. So far, Syria has not responded. Look for more such efforts by Israel and the US to provoke Syria.
I would highly recommend local peace groups call on their members of Congress and ask them to speak out against a further widening of this already insane war.
More and larger public protests should be organized immediately.
