Distracting Congress from the Real War Plan
Is the surge an orchestrated
distraction from the real war plan?
A good case can be made that it is.
The US Congress and media are focused on President
Bush`s proposal for an increase of 20,000 US troops in
Iraq, while Israel and its American neoconservative
allies prepare an assault on Iran.
Commentators have expressed
puzzlement over President Bush`s appointment of a US
Navy admiral as commander in charge of the ground wars
in Iraq and Afghanistan. The appointment makes sense
only if the administration`s attention has shifted from
the insurgencies to an attack on Iran.
The Bush administration has
recently doubled its aircraft carrier forces and air
power in the Persian Gulf. According to credible news
reports, the Israeli air force has been making practice
runs in preparation for an attack on Iran.
Recently, Israeli military and
political leaders have described Israeli machinations to
manipulate the American public and their representatives
supporting or joining an Israeli assault on Iran.
