And The Light Goes On!

And this is from the people who ignored the most important PDB in history. It is the innocents outside of Iran who will pay the price. These guys have long memories (hundreds of years of hatred) and any opportunity to strike at the Great Satan will be taken immediately and with as much "terror" as possible. They have had at least 25 years to plan and plenty of provocation in the last three years. If Iraq was supposed to be a cakewalk with flowers being thrown at our feet in gratitude, chances are this will be the Charge of the Light Brigade, except this time it will be lit by atomic weapons.
Attacking Iran May Trigger Terrorism: "Iran would mount attacks against U.S. targets inside Iraq, where Iranian intelligence agents are already plentiful, predicted these experts. There is also a growing consensus that Iran's agents would target civilians in the United States, Europe and elsewhere, they said.

U.S. officials would not discuss what evidence they have indicating Iran would undertake terrorist action, but the matter 'is consuming a lot of time' throughout the U.S. intelligence apparatus, one senior official said. 'It's a huge issue,' another said.

Citing prohibitions against discussing classified information, U.S. intelligence officials declined to say whether they have detected preparatory measures, such as increased surveillance, counter-surveillance or message traffic, on the part of Iran's foreign-based intelligence operatives.

But terrorism experts considered Iranian-backed or controlled groups -- namely the country's Ministry of Intelligence and Security operatives, its Revolutionary Guards and the Lebanon-based Hezbollah -- to be better organized, trained and equipped than the al-Qaeda network that carried out the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

The Iranian government views the Islamic Jihad, the name of Hezbollah's terrorist organization, 'as an extension of their state. . . . operational teams could be deployed without a long period of preparation,' said Ambassador Henry A. Crumpton, the State Department's coordinator for counterterrorism.

The possibility of a military confrontation has been raised only obliquely in recent months by President Bush and Iran's government. Bush says he is pursuing a diplomatic solution to the crisis, but he has added that all options are on the table for stopping Iran's acquisition of nuclear weapons."
How about we stay out of sovereign nations, the way we want them to stay out of ours and maybe in our lifetime (younger than 50) things will quiet down and we could spend all those trillions that Americans pay in taxes for the country they actually LIVE in.

Just a thought.
