Leak Reveals Cheney’s Plan for Iran Attack
Berlin, Oct 26 (Prensa Latina) An official close to US Vice President Richard Cheney leaked plans for an attack on Iran which have been made public Friday by the prestigious German media, Der Spiegel.
In the scenario concocted by Cheney s strategists, Washington s first step would be to convince Israel to fire missiles at Iran s uranium enrichment plant in Natanz. Tehran would retaliate with its own strike, providing the US with an excuse to attack military targets and nuclear facilities in Iran.
Democrats and Republicans alike have wondered what to make of the still mysterious Israeli bombing run in Syria on Sept. 6. Was it part of an existing war plan? A test run, perhaps? For days after the attack, one question dominated conversation at Washington receptions: How great is the risk of war, really?, says Der Spiegel.
The Israeli strike, or something like it, could easily mark the beginning of the «World War III,» which President Bush warned against last week.
Ex US President Rejects Attack on Iran
United Nations, Oct 26 (Prensa Latina) Former US President Jimmy Carter told reporters at the UN headquarters on Thursday that a military attack on Iran would be a «horrible mistake.»
«I hope they are only groundless rumors, because otherwise a tragedy would occur,» Carter said after meeting with UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.
«What we should be doing is having full negotiations, consultations with Iranian leaders to make sure that they know we don’t intend to attack them militarily,» the ex president underlined.
