Iraq war could be imminent

03.05.03

Reports from Israeli intelligence sources seem to indicate that war in Iraq could be only days away:

The US attack on Iraq could be launched “any day” after the beginning of next week if the Turkish parliament gives the go-ahead for American troops to operate via its territory, the head of IDF intelligence told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

[ . . . ]

On the Iraq issue, Ze’evi said that if the Turks are not persuaded to let the US use their bases as a launching pad, a US attack could be delayed “for some time.”

But Ze’evi said the weather would not present an obstacle for a military operation through the end of April or May.

This is pretty much the same as most people are speculating. But Israeli intelligence is usually fairly accurate. A lot will come down to this week’s events.
