Counter-Threat

Counter-Threat

Some analysts say that an Israeli government leak, suggesting that Israel was ready to bomb Iran in order to delay its nuclear program, was really a message from the US to Iran. War being what it is, sometimes you don't get the response you expect.

Desert Rat, who posts on the Belmont Club site has made the suggestion that a certain highly public gas leak in NYC was really a message from Iran, stating basically that if you try anything, we can get you back.

Guess you fellows were not in NYC when the "Swamp Gas" filtered through the high rise buildings.

Trouble is it was, most likely, not "swamp gas". Just as likely it was a practice run to send a message of restraint? Well at least to Mr Cheney's 1% Standard of Probability.

Only a few hundred thousand dead in NYC, in response to starting a war against Iran. If that stench had been a aerosoled nerve agent.

An event that dropped into the MSM memory hole, in just under an hour. Just a NJ swamp belching.

Why worry about nuclear devices that may or may not exist, when Japanese religous cults can manufacture basic nerve agents, without State support.

If so, it's a wake up call. The US is the biggest safe haven for terrorist sleepers. As long as they don't do anything, they remain unmolested. It's the Middle Eastern version of MAD. We have been at war since 1979 but have been in serious denial. Let at least that part change! The President could do worse than to announce that the smell was really a threat from Iran, whether or not he knows for sure. IMO, it probably was not a real threat, but that doesn't mean that there is no threat. Wake up and smell the gas!

Here is another comment by Elijah on the subject of Iran which informs:

"we are not united as a people and are not willing to fight this to a successful conclusion."

Events are fluid; numerous Iranian actions could cause a paradigm shift.

The consequences of US strikes are enormous. Tehran has several retaliatory options:
• Retaliate against US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan overtly using Shahab-3 missiles armed with CBR warheads
• Use proxy groups including al-Zarqawi and Sadr in Iraq to intensify the insurgency and escalate the attacks against US forces and Iraqi Security Forces
• Turn the Shi’ite majority in Iraq against the US presence and demand US forces to leave
• Attack the US homeland with suicide bombs by proxy groups or deliver CBR weapons to al-Qa’ida to use against the US
• Use its asymmetric capabilities to attacks US interests in the region including soft targets: e.g. embassies, commercial centers, and American citizens
• Attack US naval forces stationed in the Gulf with anti-ship missiles, asymmetric warfare, and mines
• Attack Israel with missile attacks possibly with CBR warheads
• Retaliate against energy targets in the Gulf and temporarily shut off the flow of oil from the Strait of Hormuz
• Stop all of its oil and gas shipments to increase the price of oil, inflict damage on the global and US economies
