There is an internet rumor, as yet unsubstantiated, that Israeli warplanes have landed in Saudi Arabia for an attack on Iran. In the past few days American warships were reported moving through the Suez Canal, and the scuttlebutt is that Israel and the US are preparing to attack the nuclear facilities in Iran.
Personally, I find it hard to believe that Obama would support such an operation. However, it may be another case of the tail wagging the dog in preparation for the November elections.
