Warning Signs Or Much Ado About Nothing?

Strategy Page notes the following:
Before any major military operation, there are always tell tale signs. With all the talk about Israel or the United States bombing Iran's nuclear weapons program, it would be wise to check for the signs before taking the pundit prattle too seriously.
Ten warning signs are listed that can offer clues that a military operation may be imminent. But...
These warning signs are no secret, and intelligence officers regularly run down their check lists. As a result, nations will sometimes stage a false alert by deliberately performing many of the items on someone's check list, with no intention of following through.

Useful information to have handy when the speculation starts flying, or should I say, continues to intensify.
