"US ready to strike Iran on Good Friday"

I wish I thought that the Israeli press celebrated April Fools Day.

From the Jerusalem Post:
The United States will be ready to launch a missile attack on Iran's nuclear facilities as soon as early this month, perhaps "from 4 a.m. until 4 p.m. on April 6," according to reports in the Russian media on Saturday.

According to Russian intelligence sources, the reports said, the US has devised a plan to attack several targets in Iran, and an assault could be carried out by launching missiles from fighter jets and warships stationed in the Persian Gulf.

Russian news agency RIA Novosti quoted a security official as saying, "Russian intelligence has information that the US Armed Forces stationed in the Persian Gulf have nearly completed preparations for a missile strike against Iranian territory."

The Russian Defense Ministry rejected the claims of an imminent attack as "myths." There was no immediate response from Washington.

"And on the third day Bush's approval rating rose again. It ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father."

What are we attacking Iran for? After all, when a bunch of Saudis blew up buildings here, we attacked Iraq. Shouldn't we really be going after, I don't know, Luxemborg or something?

I suspect that the United States will attack Iran because the president's handlers let him go to the cinema and see "300".
