Tip @NatCounterPunch ABCNews 'practicing' Iran bombing: http://bit.ly/zPbCHH CBS caught doing this Iraq '98: http://lat.ms/yHP2mL Thanks to Peter Hart's tweet. Here is his twitter account: http://twitter.com/peterfhart and mine: http://twitter.com/RepPress ☞CBS was caught doing the very same thing in 1998: "To try out new graphics for combat coverage in the event the U.S. goes forward with the threatened bombing of Iraq, CBS anchor Dan Rather was rehearsing with Pentagon correspondent David Martin over a closed line" - Rehearsal of War Coverage Backfires at CBS News http://articles.latimes.com/1998/feb/... Text of message: "I was visiting ABCNews the other day to see a friend who works on graphics. When I went to his room, he showed me all the graphics he was making in anticipation of the Israeli attack on Iran; not just maps, but flight patterns, trajectories, and 3-d models of U.S. aircraft carrier fleets.
"But what was most disturbing -- was that ABC, and presumably other networks, have been rehearsing these scenarios for over 2 weeks, with newscasters and retired generals in front of maps talking about missiles and delivery systems, and at their newsdesks -- the screens are emblazoned with "This is a Drill" to assure they don't go out on air -- (like War of the Worlds).
"Then reports of counter-attacks by Hezballah in Lebanon with rockets on Israeli cities -- it was mind-numbing. Very disturbing -- when pre-visualization becomes real." [ "A CounterPunch informant reports" http://www.counterpunch.org/2012/02/1... ] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRItO4... "The results of an attack on Iran could be horrendous. After all, according to a recent study of "the Iraq effect" by terrorism specialists Peter Bergen and Paul Cruickshank, using government and Rand Corporation data, the Iraq invasion has already led to a seven-fold increase in terror. The "Iran effect" would probably be far more severe and long-lasting. British military historian Corelli Barnett speaks for many when he warns that "an attack on Iran would effectively launch World War III." - Noam Chomsky "seven-fold increase in terror" see: http://motherjones.com/politics/2007/... We must no allow them to start another war! When something so horrific hangs over our heads, you don't want to sit by and do nothing.
