The actions of the U.S. government indicate that a "pre-emptive strike" is imminent against Iran, whom the Bush administration claims is
preparing to launch a terrorist attack in America. The terrorist attack by al CIAduh will give the U.S. government "justification" to retaliate
against Iran in "self-defense."
Dick Cheney has a "contingency plan", which he had drawn up in 2005, to prepare for punitive bombing of Iran when it stages a terrorist
attack against America.
Cheney's plan calls for a full-scale attack on Iran, using nuclear bunker-buster bombs against the "numerous nuclear weapons development
sites" that are "buried deep" under the desert sands, and conventional weapons against a plethora of other "strategic targets."
"The terrorists (Afghani's & Iraqi's) who attacked America on September 11", said Cheney, "are broken and weakened, but still dangerous,
and they are still determined to terrorize the American people again."
The U.S. government considers it a "justifiable opportunity to retaliate legitimately" against any nation that commits similar 9/11 attacks
against America. This "contingency plan" not only includes Iran, but Syria, Lebanon, and other "rogue terrorist states."
One year later, Donald Rumsfeld initiated this plan, making it the government's highest priority to fight terrorism around the world.
Along with two other similar plans, the Pentagon has created an expanded role for the military. The government will use Special Forces or
Special Operations troops, in continuous operations to fight terrorism in other war zones outside of Afghanistan and Iraq.
One of those "outside war zones" will be America. The U.S. military will have a number of options to retaliate against all "domestic terrorists"
or "illegal enemy combatants" who commit "terrorist acts."
"Homeland security is only one part of a much wider strategy which will bring the fight to the enemy", said Michael Chertoff, "and one special
feature of this plan is that the gloves are off, and we will use offense to defend America from terrorists and terrorism."
