[Former UNSCOM weapons inspector Scott] Ritter said that President George W. Bush has received and signed off on orders for an aerial attack on Iran planned for June 2005. Its purported goal is the destruction of Iran’s alleged program to develop nuclear weapons, but Ritter said neoconservatives in the administration also expected that the attack would set in motion a chain of events leading to regime change in the oil-rich nation of 70 million.Not to worry. CNN reports that President Bush himself has reassurance for us.
This notion that the United States is getting ready to attack Iran is simply ridiculous.His very next comment further comforts me.
Having said that, all options are on the table.Great.
