    Ok you and me we are sitting in our armchairs directing the flights.

    Here is the map of possible targets:




    Here are the flight plans:



    "In order to create proper damage to the nuclear plants, you need extremely accurate weapons," Kam said. "I don't know that the missiles are accurate enough." According to the London-based defense analysis group Jane's, Israel has one squadron -- about 25 planes -- of F-15I jets, which are similar to the F-15 Eagle fighters of the U.S. Air Force. Israel calls its version of the fighter Raam, or Thunder. It has four squadrons of F-16Is, the Israeli version of the U.S. F-16 Fighting Falcon. The Israeli jet is known as the Suefa, or Storm."

    The strike aircraft would carry bunker-busting GBU-28 bombs -- 5,000-pound bombs to "go after hardened and buried sites," Barrie said. Each F-15I could carry up to three bunker-busters, he said, depending on whether they are configured to carry the maximum number of bombs or the largest possible amount of fuel.

    Dropping a bunker-busting bomb on Fordo actually might make it less vulnerable, Chorley said, since collapsing the entrance without destroying the facility would protect it from further bombing.
    "It's questionable whether Israel is capable of destroying it in an air-launched attack," she said. "Just getting Natanz and Arak without getting Fordo wouldn't be worth the risk," she argued, since Fordo is enriching uranium to higher levels than the other sites."
    Israel would face challenge in bombing Iran nuclear sites, experts say - CNN.com

    I have fought on much worthier fields of both battle and honor. I opt for the pressure unleashed by SN and would have some soup and a nice sandwich at a NY deli with a side of slaw.

    I think what I find the most interesting about this is that the people who say they are pro-Israel and want to attack Iran somehow don't comprehend that Israeli civilians will end up being killed if Iran is attacked. Since Iran cannot attack the US directly, they will attack US military bases in the region, but will also attack Israel as well. This won't be a normal attack, it will most likely be sustained for as long as possible and the opening salvos may be quite hard. Israeli civilians will most likely end up being killed if Iran is attacked. Thus, I must ask the people who want Iran to be attacked: Do you think it is worth it?

    sometimes, like this time, there are three sides.

    not on the side of Israel and not on the side of Iran.

    on the side of the USA.

    The US is on the US' side. Israel serves a good and strategic purpose.

    Sorry you lost me there. Of course USA is on USA side. But USA has strategic partners and Israel is one of them, am I wrong? No I am not.

    That doesn't answer my question.

    I am not disagreeing with you. I am saying that as long as Israel serves good purpose for the US they will remain partners.
