TYT: U.S. Attack on Iran by Spring?
"Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak is confident, he says, that the United States has plans for surgical strikes against Iran as a last-ditch measure if Tehran refuses to stop its development of a nuclear-weapons capability.
In a televised interview at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on Thursday, Christopher Dickey of Newsweek and The Daily Beast noted the American administration's reluctance to involve itself in another Muslim world war and asked if there were any way Israel could go to war with Iran that did not drag in the United States."*
Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak is confident that if sanctions fail to halt Tehran's nuclear-weapons development, the United States has a plan to use so-called surgical strikes to eliminate the threat. Or start an all out war? Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

4. My vote; it'd be called another illegal "peace keeping" mission

And wow, shadows of the soundbite by Dumbsfeld in "Fahrehnheit 9/11" ...saying "the care and Precision with which these airstrikes on Iraq are carried out, is astounding" (while grainy b-roll shows errant, off-target splattering/murder of Iraqi civilians) Sounds like the Israeli official is saying the same thing-- as if no collateral killing/death would occur. HATE how these chickenhawk/"officials" act like they know anything about the devastation of war.

Why these "we/Israel will attack Iran" predictions are as sad and pathetic as the "Iran will have the bomb in X days", yet the former seem to be more popular as they feed the hate as much as the latter.
