Claim : Bush, Olmert Finalise Plans For Attack On Iran

This story isn't too far off the mark when it comes to what President Bush is planning for Iran.

Of course, we don't know whether or not Bush will launch a war on Iran, or if he will back air strikes by Israel, but Bush's own words show that more war is on his mind. His own comments show that he has few regrets about bombing active nuclear energy plants, which will expel untold radiation once they've been hit, and, if Chenobyl's meltdown is anything to go by, will spread deadly poison through the air and into the food supply of tens of millions of people.

It should be noted that both China and Russia have warned the United States, and Israel, that there will be "consequences" if Iran is attacked in any way. Russia and China have both signed energy development deals worth more than $100 billion in the past year, and will move to protect their investments, and in China's case, their future energy supplies.

A War On Iran will be the catalyst for not only a much wider and far more deadly and destructive Middle East war, it will trigger a truly global conflict. Once the bombing of Iran's nuclear energy facilities begins, the only debate left will be whether to call it World War 2 Or World War 4.

From Press Esc :

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert visited Washington yesterday and met with US President George W. Bush to finalise plans for a joint US-Israel strike on Iran's nuclear facilities.

President Bush hinted that actions against Iran will form the core of their discussion.

"I'm sure that we will find some time, also, to discuss other measures, such as the danger of Iran and the threats that come from the President of Iran, who talks time and again about the liquidation of the state of Israel, something that is totally intolerable and unacceptable," he said. "And we have to continue the measures taken in order to stop the Iranian efforts to establish unconventional weapons."

Talking to reporters at a joint press conference Bush once again re-iterated his position on military strikes against Iran by saying "I will tell you this, that my position hasn't changed, and that is all options are on the table."

"And I fully understand the concerns of any Israeli when they hear the voice of the man in Iran saying, on the one hand, we want to acquire the technologies and know-how to build a -- enrich uranium, which could then be converted into a nuclear weapon, and on the other hand, we want to destroy Israel," he added. "Look, if I were an Israeli citizen I would view that as a serious threat to my security. And as a strong ally of Israel, I view that as a serious threat to its security -- not only the security of Israel, but the security of the Middle East."

Meanwhile, Iran has formally complained to the United Nations about the planned strike by US and Israel.

"I wish to inform you that, emboldened by the absence of any action by the Security Council, various Israeli officials have unabatedly continued to publicly and contemptuously make unlawful and dangerous threats of resorting to force against the Islamic Republic of Iran," Iran's UN ambassador Javad Zarif wrote in a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, dated June 11.
