Start spreading the news rumors.

As the details finally begin to emerge from the Israeli air strike on a "a partly constructed nuclear reactor of North Korean design" in Syria last month, MSNBC just can't help but ask: "Will US Copy Israel?" and bomb Iran? Despite the fact that MSNBC correspondent Kevin Corke even admits his sources in the pentagon both on and off the record tell him a "resounding no" and they deny that Israel's strike "had any impact whatsoever on US policy," MSNBC chose to run this piece with the subheading "U.S. Weighs Options on Iran After Israel Sends Jets to Attack Syria" anyway, because it "makes for interesting conversation."
