    Israel engaged in covert war inside Iran: report

    Israel engaged in covert war inside Iran: report - Yahoo! News
    LONDON (Reuters) Israel is involved in a covert war of sabotage inside Iran to try to delay Tehran's alleged attempts to develop a nuclear weapon, a British newspaper said on Tuesday, quoting a former CIA agent and intelligence experts.

    An intelligence source in the Middle East told Reuters last year Israel planned to target Iranian nuclear scientists with letter bombs and poisoned packages and had set off explosions in Iran. Analysts offered similar accounts and said such tactics would be credible, but no confirmation has been available.
    And what about all the ones that the Israeli secret operatives don't get caught or blamed for? I assume our western media will portray it as a terrorist element of Iran vying for control no matter what.

    This article is creepy. If Iran was trying to nuke the world that would be scary. If their leader was telling the truth and they where only pursuing it for energy purposes then this is even scarier.

    I have no idea as to whether Iran is trying to build a Nuclear weapon and I suspect neither does anyone else other than the Iranians.
    However we have seen that Iran does openly support both Hezbollah and Hamas and that these two entities have been designated as being Terrorist groups (IMHO quite correctly).
    Iran has openly called for the destruction of Israel and recently Turkey is hosting groups that also call for this.
    Israel as any other nation is fully entitled to defend itself from attack, if taking the fight to the enemy's backyard is required than I see no reason why this should be discouraged.
    Israel must be aware that there are some 30,000 Jews holding Iranian citizenship and that these folk may well be held hostage.

    If this is true, it would not surprise me. Israel takes Iranian nuclear development the most seriously, even over the United States. If so, they will do whatever it takes to curb nuclear development. My main concern is, if Iran is actually just pursuing an innocuous energy policy, Israel could antagonize them into actually making nuclear weapons out of revenge. If the CIA knows about this operation, then Iranian intelligence definitely knows.

    I still think Iran's economy matters more to it than war though.

    Israel absolutely has to take action now with Obama being elected. If it doesn't it may be forced into using nuclear weapons in order to defend itself.


    Isreal can no more rely on Obama then US soldiers can.

    Yes. Because, if left alone, Israel will...
    ...do nothing.

    That is scary. People need to wake up to this.

    Both Iran and Israel scare the crap out of me.

    Israel has nukes and might elect a far far right fascist religious nationalist government.

    Iran is run by a bunch of religious nutjobs who are funding world wide terror (and have since the 1980s), and possibly working on a nuke.

    Not sure which of the 2 would be more inclined to use a nuke, both are probably insane enough to do it.

    Israel would definately use them in the event of a possible attack from Iran. Iran would use them if they knew they worked.

    I sure hope not. We be close to the end of the world.

    Using nuclear weapons is beyond insane. Any nation, Israel or Iran, using nukes, will go down in history along side Hitler. The amount of damage and collateral damage will be felt all around the world.

    The areas nuked will be unliveable for generations, the people damaged for generations. The winds will take the fallout across the planet, over land making food for billions and cause mass starvation and death.

    If you think that Israel nuking Iran or visa versa wont have environmental impact on the US.. think again. Even the fall out from Chernobyl reached the US.
