Us Troops Prepared To Attack Iran Bush Said To Be Seeking âPersian Gulf Incidentâ By William Thomas 05/11/06 http://www.willthomas.net/Convergence/Weekly/US_Attack_Iran.htm The author speaks with what sounds (to me, a lifelong civilian) a fluent grasp of military jargon. He claims to have well-placed, anonymous contacts who tell him that: 1. The administration has long since had its mind made up to launch the attack. 2. The administration has already issued readiness orders to field commanders. 3. The administration has drawn up plans for an inept, ill-conceived, "Little Bighorn" type invasion. (Including HALO delivery of heavy equipment.) 4. The only reason why the strike has not already been launched is because high ranking officers are balking. I'd be interested in a professional's assessment of whether this article has real substance or is just a well-crafted pack of lies and disinformation.
