“Operation Bite”

I have been hearing frequently more recently about the U.S.’s “Operation Bite” against Iran, scheduled for TODAY.  I have been participating in actions over the last week and a half to make noise about this.  Here is a photo of my friends holding a banner we made that made its debut yesterday, first in front of Channel 2 in Salt Lake City, where for an instant you could see the banner in the window behind the anchors on the 5pm news (they quickly shot away from that and moved the anchors), and then at the sidewalk vigil:

The issue is Iran’s development of nuclear weapons and the recent expediency in which they are developing them.  I have been scouring the news this morning in the limited time I have to see any indication of military aggression on the part of the U.S. against Iran and so far haven’t seen anything about the bombing campaign I had been reading about.

I keep reading and re-reading about the nuclear weapons issue with Iran and how the U.N. Security Council is discussion imposing stricter sanctions against Iran for developing nuclear weapons.

But the U.S. is planning to use nuclear weapons on Iran because of their development of nuclear weapons.  Why is that o.k.?  It is no secret that the U.S. is developing tests for the development of new nuclear weapons and new replacement warheads itself.  Why is that o.k.?  Why isn’t the U.N. Security Council making noise about that?  It doesn’t make sense.

Here are some news items collected over the last week:
