Rumors of war

But you will begin to hear of wars and rumors of wars. . . Matt. 24:6.

Did you hear that the Israelis are now denying the Sunday Times report that they are planning a tactical nuke strike on Iran's nuclear facilities? Sort of, anyway. The way these statements are couched, they seem more like "non-denial denials."

Meanwhile, the U.S. government is tight-lipped about some kind of military action today in Somalia. Various reports say individuals responsible for the 1998 embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania were targeted. More intriguingly, some reports allude to a "senior al-Qaeda" figure. Read more here.

Roscoe has felt for a long time that with as months and years as Osama bin Laden has eluded capture, he could be just about anywhere. The idea that he's still holed up somewhere on the Afghan-Pakistan border seems a little hard to swallow.

Suppose he could have returned to Somalia? Or maybe someone like Ayman al-Zawahiri. The other piece of the puzzle is that this strike was called 48 hours before President Bush announces a new phase in the war on terror.

But then, maybe we're just the suspicious type. . .
