49. Don't forget this Scott Ritter prediction: June 2005
Scott Ritter Says U.S. Plans June Attack On Iran

By Mark Jensen

02/19/05 --

snip

On Iran, Ritter said that President George W. Bush has received and signed off on orders for an aerial attack on Iran planned for June 2005. Its purported goal is the destruction of Irans alleged program to develop nuclear weapons, but Ritter said neoconservatives in the administration also expected that the attack would set in motion a chain of events leading to regime change in the oil-rich nation of 70 million -- a possibility Ritter regards with the greatest skepticism.
