Iran: Something about to happen?

Counter The White Man stocked up on gasoline recently, due in part to a rumor from the Pentagon that something big was about to go down that would put a big squeeze on the supply of crude oil. Whatever the case, there is enough information starting to come out from unclassified sources to indicate that a war with Iran could be sooner than we think.

1) An annual intelligence report to Congress has dropped language stating that Iran's nuclear weapons ambitions are a future option and speaks in terms of the present, indicating a radical switch in US policy on Iran. As rocketing oil prices triggered by Arab uprisings wiped out the sanctions damage to Iran, Washington confirmed the worst Saudi and Israeli suspicions that Barack Obama had come to terms with a nuclear-armed Iran, after the US long restrained Israel from nipping this menace in the bud.

2) The two Iranian warships that transited the Suez Canal to Syria were carrying weapons to supply terrorists in Lebanon and Gaza. They have been permanently assigned to the Syrian port of Latkieh.

3) Israeli warplanes recently struck a Hamas supply column in Sudan, wiping it out in two passes. This operation involved aerial refueling.

4) The IDF war games in Crete in 2008, dubbed "Glorious Spartan," were primarily for the purpose of practicing penetration of Iran's new S-300 missile defense system, one of which was conveniently located "temporarily" in Crete--exactly as far from Israel as are Iran's nuclear targets.

5) Events in Japan have shown that a direct hit on a nuclear reactor is not necessary to render it inoperative; simply shutting off its cooling system precipitously can lead to a meltdown within minutes. There are many ways of accomplishing this, short of an all-out aerial attack.
