It seems like a day does not go by when we don't see a article published in a major newspaper or new site which argue for the most part that Israel faces an imminent choice on whether to bomb Iran. A majority of these articles are posting that Israel will bomb Iran before the November elections, with a minority arguing that Israel will not bomb Iran in the immediate future. I stress that when reading these articles to read in between the lines and look at developments that pertain to the Iranian bomb 'crisis.'
Many of these articles, quote and cite 'sources' in the Israeli Military and Government to support the articles message. The Israeli military brass is not stupid, they know full well how to play the media very well. So when you come across an article citing anonymous sources in Israel who suggest that Israel will bomb Iran in October, don't be so believing. It's important to keep in mind that journalists in Israel , foreign or domestic are subject to Israel Military Censor. They are not going to let any publication or journalist publish any sensitive information. Rather, they will permit articles to be published - particularly those that pertain to Iran plans which would promote its position on the seriousness of the issue.
Some of the people contending that Israel will bomb Iran soon were saying the same thing in 2008. These people include John Bolton and Charles Krauthammer whom I distinctly remember in 2008 confidently asserting that Israel would bomb Iran right before or shortly after the 08 election. Fast forward 4 years, we are hearing the same thing that Israel is planning to bomb Iran.
At times it seems to me that media outlets will publish anything that seems "juicy" on Iran because its a very hot topic issue. Consequently, a " juicy" article is going to result in increased site traffic which translates into increased ad revenue and notoriety.
The fact of the matter is, when and if Israel does decide to bomb Iran, it will be when we least expect it. Israel knows what its doing and they are using the media as its pawns. With all of these projections, someone will get Israels target date right assuming it does bomb Iran. After all, a broken clock is always right twice a day.
