Dutch Intelligence Service: US to Bomb Iran within weeks

The Dutch intelligence service, the AIVD, has called off an operation aimed at infiltrating and sabotaging Iran's weapons industry due to an assessment that a US attack on the Islamic Republic's nuclear program is imminent, according to a report in the country's De Telegraaf newspaper on Friday.

The report claimed that the Dutch operation had been "extremely successful," and had been stopped because the US military was planning to hit targets that were "connected with the Dutch espionage action."

The impending air-strike on Iran was to be carried out by unmanned aircraft "within weeks," the report claimed, quoting "well placed" sources.

"With tensions in the Persian Gulf on the rise, the collapse in oil prices that we've been predicting may take longer than originally anticipated. There are three U.S. carrier groups within striking distance of Iran right now, and two more reportedly on the way. This is unprecedented, although you'd have to search the web and the newsletter world to find any mention of it. Gary North thinks that the news media have deliberately chosen not to report the naval build-up for fear of starting a panic that could push oil to $200-per-barrel, wrecking the already frail U.S. economy. But we think reporters have simply been too busy obsessing over the Olympics and the meaningless political spectacle in Denver to care about what is going on in the geopolitical world. Whatever the case, the build-up is big news, especially since President Bush has yet to even acknowledge it." (Read more here)
