"Newsweek Magazine reported Sunday that Vice President Richard Cheney may have considered a plan for Israeli missile strikes against an Iranian nuclear site in an effort to draw a military response from Iran, which could in turn spark a U.S. offensive against targets in the Islamic Republic" I provided a link to a Guardian article that said exactly the same thing. The story there was that America would attack afactory in Iran making munitions allegedly being used against British and American forces in Iraq. Iran would then respond, allowing the Bush administration to sell a wider bombing campaign to a gullible America public.
