    Re: U.S. Thwarted Israeli Plan to Bomb Iranian Nuclear Facility

    Too funny; the IPS and some no-name nutjob named Emad Mekay has such immense credibility that the FACTS and the Joint Resolution have nothing to do with us being in Iraq.

    Hereís your first clue; if not even a Bush hating New York Times will carry a story like this, itís probably make believe.

    Carry on.

    Re: U.S. Thwarted Israeli Plan to Bomb Iranian Nuclear Facility

    First, l would like to take a moment to gloat by saying "I called it". Second of all, although it was a setback, refusing to sell the munitions to Israel is no way means they won't attack. They have the capability to build deep-penetration munitions of their if they choose. In the Gulf War, we built some in 28 days using 8 inch artillery barrels filled with explosives. Israel has the capability to build something similar if they have a dire need to do so. I would still argue that the larger problem is in getting a way to deliver the munitions to the target. Israel will most likely have to secure an airbase in one of the Iran's neighbors, or purchase some new aircraft. Although this will delay the attack, it will not stop Israel from stopping Iran's nuclear program if they are truly determined to do so.

    President Bush last year rejected an Israeli request to provide sophisticated...
    Baloney, this is just a PR stunt timed perfectly for the end of his term and the Gaza conflict--maybe this will give him 1-2% higher on the approval ratings, that's it. All doctored baloney.

    U.S. Thwarted Israeli Plan to Bomb Iranian Nuclear Facility

    More at link.

    This gives greater credence to my theory that the US invaded Iraq to prevent a broader war in the Middle East.

    I invite all those who doubted my belief to join in here and comment on how this impacts your doubts about the US motivations for invading.

    My guess (you asked). The US doesn`t want to start another war over there. If the Iranians NUKE Israel ,I think we should end all future war with the muslim world by eliminateing ALL zealots in the muslim world. One by one by one `forever` till you really do have only LOVEING muslims left. Stay the course Israel.

    Bill ,so when your brothers in arms ,IRAN ,nukes Israel for not signing a UN treaty it`ll be OK ?

    Hereís your first clue; if not even a Bush hating New York Times will carry a story like this, itís probably make believe.

    Carry on.

    In short: The article misinterprets the story of what Zelikow said.

    The details: First of all, consider that I am a loyal American, HUGE GWB supporter and believe the war was in the USA's and the World's best interest. So, why would I introduce a story such as this which seemingly casts the USA and President Bush in an inaccurately unflattering light?

    Because it contains a singular report which provides the piece to the puzzle that the President and the Administration fails to disclose and it fills in the blanks better than the opposition's stories which slam the President's invasion motivation.

    The President, for whatever reason, doesn't want to make clear exactly what his motivations were for going toward regime change beyond the Cease Fire resolution violations (the Casus Belli), the 1998 Iraq Liberation Act, and the perception of WMD's (which explains the need for haste in taking action).

    His critics have taken the KNOWN facts and weaved them into what they contend is an airtight case for wrong actions and a bad, unnecessary war.

    But somewhere between the President's story, which he confidently and tantalizingly says will be revealed to history after we are gone from the scene, and the varied 'indictments' of his actions by the legions of critics lies this singular fact: there was nothing of real interest to the USA which was threatened by Saddam's WMD's - if they existed. We had no bases or facilities that Saddam would have wasted a nuke on. The ONLY American interest that Saddam could have threatened which would have prompted our action was our ally Israel.

    If Saddam had threatened Israel with WMD's it would have grave implications.

    Emad Mekay's story suggests we would have sought to protect Israel from destruction. But we all know that Israel has a bristling and robust military capability. So why would we care if Saddam threatened Israel if Israel could have dealt with the threat itself, without our help?

    Because of what might happen if Israel struck Iraq without apparent provocation. It could start a broader war. And THAT is what I say this story about the Israeli's desire to attack the IRANIAN Nuclear program helps illuminate.

    Whenever Israel is threatened she neutralizes that threat herself. And she'd have done so in the case of Iraq's WMD's just as she sought to do so with Iran's Nuclear program. But in BOTH cases GWB prevented Israel from acting by initiating substitute courses of action.


    As I said, this story seems true it is just interpreted incorrectly...in an inaccurately biased and incorrect way. Emad Mekay interprets the story to make it seem like we were protecting Israel. One can speculate as to why he might have done this.

    But what he wants us to believe are the facts of the account can also be interpreted to read that the USA was trying to protect the Middle East from a broader war that might have broken out if Israel had been allowed to protect itself from Saddam's perceived WMD's.

    As I have said before this is very difficult for me to explain because I see it very clearly and I can't know what part you can't grasp nor how to explain it to you any better than I'm trying to do here.
