  1. Please tell me why president Bush on May 9, 2007 signed National Security Presidential Directive 51 and Homeland Security Presidential Directive 20. The people of the US are for some tine now being habituated to the idea of and attack on Iran by Israel and the US. What in your opinion is the probability that president Bush will invoke NSPD 51 after such an attack and before the elections?
