    Israel stands ready to bomb Iran's nuclear sites

    Israel stands ready to bomb Iran's nuclear sites - Times Online

    The Israeli military is preparing itself to launch a massive aerial assault on Iran's nuclear facilities within days of being given the go-ahead by its new government.

    “We would not make the threat [against Iran] without the force to back it. There has been a recent move, a number of on-the-ground preparations, that indicate Israel's willingness to act,” said another official from Israel's intelligence community.

    He added that it was unlikely that Israel would carry out the attack without receiving at least tacit approval from America, which has struck a more reconciliatory tone in dealing with Iran under its new administration.

    .
    I imagine it would be much like the calls that went back and forth before the invasion of Iraq.

    Israel has to protect itself at all costs.

    But this time we might choose to allow Israel to defend itself so that we could be the "good guy".

    My wishlist would be real time streaming video from the strike aircraft.

    I have to wonder how much tacit approval Israel would have from the Arab nations for such a strike. As much as the Arabs are opposed to the Israeli state, I don't see any of them being particularly enthusiastic about Iran having nuclear capabilities. Nuclear capacity would tilt the balance of power so far towards Tehran that the Arab nations might feel compelled to pursue nuclear programs of their own.

    I can easily envision the Arab world publicly being outraged at an Israeli attack on Iran's nuclear facilities and privately going "whew!".

    I wonder what the Arab people and Imams reaction would be. The estimated 30% of all Muslims who support Islamism would likely not take this sitting down.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    There is absolutely no evidence that Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons. This is all hype.

    This is EXACTLY correct. Most of the arab world, except maybe for Palestine and Syria) will publicly condemn the attack but secretly they will rejoice that Iran has been disarmed.

    Most nations in the middle east do not want Iran to have nuclear arms. None of those nations will retaliate against Israel for putting a foot up the Ayetollah's ass.

    I do not believe the current US Presidency will support such an act. In fact, Joe Biden has already cautioned Israel about such an action.

    Honestly, I hope the situation can be resolved without the use of force; however, I doubt Iran is going to be cooperative.

    Says you ... and you are usually incorrect.

    Iran's nuclear fuel has been enriched WELL BEYOND what is needed for generating electricity.

    This is evidence enough that Iran has more on their agenda then civilian power generation.

    Wake up and smell the coffee!
