  Heh. - U.S. to Mad Mullahs: "Soon"
Cat And Mouse Game Over Iran: "The U.S. Air Force is playing a dangerous game of cat and mouse with Iran's ayatollahs, flying American combat aircraft into Iranian airspace in an attempt to lure Tehran into turning on air defense radars, thus allowing U.S. pilots to grid the system for use in future targeting data, administration officials said.

'We have to know which targets to attack and how to attack them,' said one, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The flights, which have been going on for weeks, are being launched from sites in Afghanistan and Iraq, and are part of Bush administration attempts to collect badly needed intelligence on Iran's possible nuclear weapons development sites, these sources said, speaking on condition of strict anonymity.

'These Iranian air defense positions are not just being observed, they're being 'templated,'' an ad ministration official said, explaining that the flights are part of a U.S. effort to develop 'an electronic order of battle for Iran' in case of actual conflict.

However, a Pentagon spokesman told UPI he was unaware of any such actions."
