Iran tells world Israeli jets in Iraq preparing to strike deep inside Iran. A ruse for pre-emptive attack?

If Pres. Obama resisted the Pentagon & State Depts' beseechings to capture Osama bin Laden (to the President's own political, if not ideological, benefit) what are the odds that he'll authorize Israel to do anything beyond "flex their wings" on provoking military and terror reprisals from the apocalyptic Muslim ayatollahs' regime?

'Israeli jets prepare in Iraq to strike Iran' Mon May 2, 2011 Iranian state-owned Press TV
Israeli jet fighters have reportedly conducted drills at a military base in Iraq in order to strike targets inside Iran.

A considerable number of Israeli warplanes were seen at al-Asad base in Iraq, reported a source close to prominent Iraqi cleric Muqtada al-Sader's group.

The aircraft reportedly included F-15, F-16, F-18, F-22, and KC-10 jet fighters.

The warplanes carried out their week-long exercises at nights, the same source added.

The drills were reportedly aimed at preparing to strike Iran's air defense systems, disrupt Iran's radars and attack targets deep inside Iran.

Iraqi officials had not been notified of the exercises, which were conducted in collaboration with the US military.

The United States maintains numerous bases in Iraq, and the Baghdad government is not involved in any of the military deployments taking place there.

Israel doesn't have F-22 or F-18 Fighter Jets! Don't print silly anecdotes! Stick to real journalism.
