Iran Implicated

Well it was only a matter of time before Iran was implicated. I'm not sure how many people predicted this kind of move during the recent nuclear row (remember that?), but I do wonder if there's anyone left to fool. To be frank, a part of me is upset that some would so easily attempt to insult the collective intelligence of the world.

You really couldn't make this stuff up. The only potential surprise left is if action isn't taken out on Iran in the near future.

    I don't know anyone that wasn't expecting it.

    I was reading something from the Institute for advanced strategic and political studies Jerusalem, apparently written in 1996:

    "Syria challenges Israel on Lebanese soil. An effective approach, and one with which American can sympathize, would be if Israel seized the strategic initiative along its northern borders by engaging Hizballah, Syria, and Iran, as the principal agents of aggression in Lebanon, including by:

    - paralleling Syria’s behavior by establishing the precedent that Syrian territory is not immune to attacks emanating from Lebanon by Israeli proxy forces.

    - striking Syrian military targets in Lebanon, and should that prove insufficient, striking at select targets in Syria proper. "

    From 'A clean break:A New Strategy for Securing the Realm'

    I have a feeling israel firmly intends to engage Iran, but it needs Hezbullah out of the way first. We shall soon see, though I'd rather not.
