War Rhetoric Heating Up

War Rhetoric Heating Up

U.S. officials say that Iran, in response to mounting tension from the West, is prepared to launch terrorist attacks within the borders of the United States.

According to The Washington Post, National Intelligence Director James Clapper Jr. said in a recent prepared testimony that the alleged Iranian plan to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador in Washington, D.C., represents a growing willingness from top Iranian officials to authorize attacks against the United States.

The assessment was delivered during the U.S. intelligence community’s yearly overview of the Nation’s top perceived security threats.

As the aggressive rhetoric toward Iran continues to come from U.S. officials, high-ranking members of the Islamic Republic are pushing back through the country’s state-run media. A recent story in IRNA, quotes Iran’s National Security Council Secretary Saeed Jalili saying that the West is not afraid of nuclear activities in the country, but rather of Islamic thought.

“Global arrogance is angry with Iran’s prominent role in the Muslim world,” he said.

As the tensions heat up, DEBKA-Net-Weekly reported that military and Washington sources have said that the Administration of Barack Obama has “secretly ordered US air, naval and marine forces to build up heavy concentrations on two strategic islands – Socotra, which is part of a Yemeni archipelago in the Indian Ocean, and the Omani island of Masirah at the southern exit of the Strait of Hormuz.”

According to the intelligence and terrorism site, up to 100,000 U.S. troops will be present in the region by early March.
