Dollar and America on the Road to Ruin

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  (revised)

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said that Israel might attack Iran by spring!  Why he felt he had to put that out there, I’ll never know.  Why the Mainstream Media (MSM) buried this story is another question altogether.  This is huge and has some frightening implications.  What if the Iranians feel they want to beat Israel to the punch and attack first?  What if the Israelis have no intention of attacking Iran?  What if Israel now feels the element of surprise is gone after spring and it moves up their time table?  (more…)
