The last part of the last sentence supports at least one
uncontroversial modification, changing the time scale in the article
(first paragraph) to something like
"possibly during the coming months"
"possibly <b>this month (March 2006)</b>"
Now we're half-way through March, and it's looking like the
Cheney/Bush regime will feel the propaganda is not (yet) strong enough
for an attack. It makes sense that they will wait until they feel the
moment is right - e.g. not too long before the November 2006 US
Congress elections - before making a final decision to attack.
The Timesonline + Der Spiegel point to a NATO attack (as in the case of
Kosovo, Russia+China did *not* support the NATO attack in the UN Security
Council, but the attack happened anyway, e.g.:
