"Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please." (Mark Twain)

I don't know which is worse - the possibility that this assertion is true, or the possibility that it is false but presumed to be true. Either way, the likely result is open hostility between the US/Israel axis on one hand, and the dominant regional superpower (that would be Iran, thanks to "Dick" Cheney's rank incompetence) along with her ally of convenience (Syria) on the other. If this scenario should come to pass, then everything's in play - for example, the governments of Jordan and (especially) Egypt might find themselves in very precarious positions.
