News Update: Clinton & Iran
by J. Orlin Grabbe
Meanwhile, leading Republicans like House Speaker Newt Gingrich know that a second Fifth Column packet has been prepared for Bob Dole. But to this point it would seem they are waiting for someone else to do their job for them. Will there be a revolt at the Republican convention and a push for a new nominee? Or will Republicans twiddle their thumbs until Dole is forced to withdraw from the race?
2. Israeli radio says Israel has been told by the U.S. that it will likely attack Iran soon. According to the Isarali radio station Arutz7:
U.S. LIKELY TO ATTACK IRAN--The United States Army is likely to receive an order in the coming days to attack Iranian targets, including nuclear bases and Iranian ships. This will be in retaliation for Teheran's involvement in the late-June attack against the Marines in Saudi Arabia and the downing of the TWA airliner. The Americans have reported to Israel regarding their plans to attack Iran.
Whether this policy of apparent overkill will have any effect on the threatened Syrian terror campaign in the U.S. is not at all clear.
