The world is watching one of the most unstable governments in the whole world come close to a nuclear bomb and we are doing NOTHING!
I know the Israelis will do what they can, and thats a huge amount but the only way to take out this threat is for the US to get involved.
AF pilots have completed their mission training and fighter jets have been prepared for an Israeli attack on Iran, the British Sunday Times reported.
The article reported that “the elite 69 strategic F-15 I squadron” had been equipped with weapons that will be tested in combat for the first time, and that two missile submarines were on standby: one in the Persian Gulf and the second in Haifa Bay.
The Times also said that special IDF forces would be helicoptered into Iran to take out targets that could not be destroyed in an air strike.
Iran’s nuclear facilities, according to the newspaper report, are widely dispersed at some 40 underground sites throughout Iran, which would make any attack by Israel – or any other nation – exponentially more difficult that Israel’s successful attack on Iraq’s Osirak nuclear reactor in 1981.[…]Shabtai Shoval, a former operative in the Israeli intelligence community, who wrote a book that Iran will reach nuclear weapons capability by 2009, says that covert action, for example by the Mossad, is the most interesting option, but would still not stop Tehran’s push for nuclear weapons.
Dr. Reuven Pedatzur, a senior lecturer at the Strategic Studies Program at Tel Aviv University, believes Israel would be making a “disastrous strategic error” if it embarked on a full-scale attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities. “The military option is not relevant, we simply don’t have the right amount of intelligence and information; many of the targets are buried deep under ground.
Only if the Americans decide to do it, then that option is possible,” Pedatzur said last week. Pedatzur added that the day Iran gets a nuclear weapon, Israel will have no choice but to abandon its policy of nuclear ambiguity.
Of course you just know the left will start blaming Bush for Iran’s drive to Nuclear power right?? He is evil incarnate of course….sigh
The only American that should be blamed for Iran is Jimmy Carter who singlehandedly allowed that country to become what it is today.? Anyway we can send him into exile there?
im neither jewish nor isreali but feel Isreal had the balls in the 60’s 70’s and in the the 80’s against iraq, to stand up. so why should they do anything different now. they have 200 nukes to irans 0
Citizens need jobs. If war creates jobs for citizens and reduce gas price, then as leaders, ya’ll have to make your country better first before concerning about other regions of the world. If you are poor, you can give no body a helping hand. Reality is the same forever: the strong survives, the weak dies. If world war 3 breaks out, so be it; rather than being intimidate by monster around you. Bomb the hell out of those who threaten humanity. Human doesn’t live forever anyways. Dying for a good reason is better than dying sick and old or killed by mother nature. Bomb them stupid cowards…
Is this what they call a backtrack?
None of the end-options for this scenario are good.
As others have said, we either end it now (bad option) or end it later (worse option).
Either way, this is going to suck…
