The sound you hear . . .

. . . is my head banging on my desk. We've all heard that the Bush Administration has been eyeing Iran for its next possible military intervention (see prev. notes on this here and here), but they're actually having the Pentagon draw up plans to invade Iran in response to a future terrorist attack in the US, whether or not there's reason to think that the two are linked in any way.
Several senior Air Force officers involved in the planning are reportedly appalled at the implications of what they are doing – that Iran is being set up for an unprovoked nuclear attack – but no one is prepared to damage his career by posing any objections.
Tell the emperor that his outfit looks lovely, boys! aaaaaaugh!
