Iranian officials have issued new warnings that any United States attack on the Islamic Republic would be a major strategic mistake. Asefi said: "The core of U.S. propaganda is militarism, it means the U.S. designs its propaganda based on a militaristic axis. We see [these remarks] also as part of it; it's a psychological war that happens every now and then." Intelligence Minister Ali Yunesi said a U.S. attack on Iran would be a massive mistake. He said planes have been detected flying over Iran to conduct espionage for the Americans, and warned that "every action has a reaction." Yunesi also said U.S. commandos had not entered Iran for covert reconnaissance missions. He described American commandos as "chicks" who would rapidly be picked up by Iranian "eagles" if they came to Iran. U.S. President George W. Bush recently said military action had not been ruled out to deal with Iran's nuclear program, while Vice President Dick Cheney said Iran tops the world's trouble spots and warned that Israel could decide to bomb Iran's nuclear facilities.
