Bruit de bottes dans le Golfe persique

Début Juin, des exercices militaires de l'armée israélienne ont mobilisé une centaine de chasseurs-bombardiers F16 et F15 au dessus de la méditerranée afin, très certainement, de préparer le bombardement des installations nucléaires iraniennes.

WASHINGTON: A large Israeli military exercise this month may have been aimed at showing Jerusalem's abilities to attack Iranian nuclear facilities. In a substantial show of force, Israel sent warplanes and other aircraft on a major exercise in the Eastern Mediterranean early this month, US Defense Department officials said yesterday. Israel's military refused to confirm or deny that the maneuvers were practice for a strike in Iran. Russia's foreign minister yesterday warned against the use of force on Ir
an, saying there is no proof it is trying to build nuclear weapons with a program that Tehran says is for generating power.

Il convient d'y ajouter les récentes déclarations de Kristol et McCain.
Selon Kristol, si les sondages deviennent de plus en plus favorables à Obama, il se peut que Bush bombarde l'Iran avant novembre. Dans le cas contraire, il laissera McCain décider. Comme quoi, McCain est bien sur la ligne de l'administration Bush concernant l'Iran.

On Fox News Sunday this morning, Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol said that President Bush is more likely to attack Iran if he believes Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) is going to be elected.

However, “if the president thought John McCain was going to be the next president, he would think it more appropriate to let the next president make that decision than do it on his way out,” Kristol said, reinforcing the fact that McCain is offering a third Bush term on Iran.

De plus McCain a récemment parlé de 3eme guerre mondiale, tout comme Bush en octobre dernier, lorsqu'il a évoqué un éventuel conflit avec l'Iran.

Asked about that possibility by a potential voter in Florida during a telephone "town hall meeting," McCain said: "I don't know what would make a draft happen unless we were in an all-out World War III." ...

En 2006 déjà, McCain avait dit que nous étions au début d'une 3ème guerre mondiale.

But McCain may be more open to the draft than it seems. During a July 2006 interview on CNN, McCain was asked about the following statement by Newt Gingrich: "We're in the early stages of what I would describes as the Third World War and, frankly, our bureaucracies aren't responding fast enough." Asked whether he agreed, McCain said:

"I do to some extent. I think it's important to recognize that we have terrorist organizations which -- who are dangerous by themselves, are now being supported by radical Islamic governments, i.e., the Iranians, which makes them incredibly more dangerous because they are trained, equipped, motivated and assisted in every way by the Iranians."

Sans compter la fébrilité des pays du golfe qui demandent à Olmert et Bush d'être mis au courant assez tôt de l'attaque pour se préparer.
