No "Operation Bite" as promised by the Russian press


Thailand: US Marines

Operation Bite turned out to be a Big Bust. Perhaps it was overshadowed by the release of the Brits this past week.

Or maybe Mr. Seymour Hersh's interview with an Iranian news outlet:
I do know there is an intensive planning for an air strike and one of the problems you have when you start the process is if the air strike isn't successful or it doesn't lead to what they want, I mean a capitulation by Iran. The next step would be they are considered some sort of on the ground operation. All of this has to be considered in the planning but this is just planning. What I have been writing about for over year is still planning. It is going to be planning until the president wakes up one morning and says I want to strike Iran and then it happens. That order so far has not come.
Right.

Perhaps Mr. Hersh ought to go back to writing rather than talking.

Or, perhaps he ought to just take up eating "freshly skinned king cobra" snakes. Ummm; yummy.

Haven't we had enough interviews with Iranian news media in the last two weeks to last us for, say, at least a year?

However, if you haven't had enough, I draw your attention to The Voice of the Islamic Republic of Iran: World Service English Radio.

Hey, we have the Voice of America. No reason they can't have their voice, too.

Thankfully, I don't have to listen regularly to either.
