Sunday Times lifts Speccie's story?

I wonder whether these stories were divided at birth or whether one was cloned from the other ...

"Within the next 12 months, the Americans or the Israelis, possibly both, are likely to launch military strikes aimed at crippling Iran's nuclear ambitions. Those strikes may come sooner rather than later. And they will probably be nuclear."
The Spectator, opener, Jan 5, 2007

“Israel has drawn up secret plans to destroy Iran’s uranium enrichment facilities with tactical nuclear weapons.”
The Sunday Times, front page opener, Jan 7, 2007.

The similarities between the two lengthy reports are remarkable and doubtless a tribute to a plurality of journalistic talent.
