Jerusalem, Israel (AHN)-In the wake of deadly suicide bombing attacks and the possibility of a nuclear-armed Iran and Syria, Israel is preparing to hold the largest military exercise in the nation's history over five days starting on Sunday, April 6.

The military drill, which is being organized by Israel's National Emergency Authority, will take over five days in April, with Deputy Defense Minister Matan Vilna'i overseeing preparations for the event.

As past of the military preparation effort, Israeli Cabinet members will meet in Jerusalem to "assess" the scope of the enemy attack and decide on Israel's response. The drill, which is designed to test Israel's preparedness in the face of an enemy attack, will involve the Israel Police, Israel Defense Force Home Front Command and other military branches, all of the country's hospitals, the Fire and Rescue Service, Magen David Adom and other rescue services.

During the mock attack, sirens will blare throughout the country, and mass evacuations will take place at several "hit zones" throughout the country, with hospitals and rescue workers testing their abilities to provide large-scale medical treatment to those wounded in the attacks.

"This is the biggest exercise in Israel's history," said one defense official involved in the mock attack planning. "This is not being done since we think there will be a war, but rather since we need to be prepared," the official added.


Of course they are not gonna say ''yes, we are doing this to prepare us for a war with Iran''. But we all know there it is very plausible that Israel might attack Iran before the elections in the US will take place in November, so that they can drag the US into it. After all, for instance Obama, would never give his approval to the military for supporting Israel in case it happens.

Cheney is a horny warmonger and will do everything to drag the US into a war with Iran. You don't really think Rice, Bush and Cheney have all recently visited Israel (Cheney is about), to discuss a peace agreement between Palestine and Israel? Cheney does not care a bit about the cause of Palestine.

He is there to discuss their war plans. Isn't it strange that Bush is about to visit Israel again in May? He is recently (in January) been there and is going again in May, while he has never visited Israel before his first visit in January.

Well ,this drill is making people over here also nervous. However threats are coming from all the directions (including Israel) for last year, it might be general exercise, not Iran-war oriented. As for Bush visiting in May- he is coming for Independence day, as he promised in the last visit.

I'm sorry, but I have to comment...

What if this is setting up for another staged event, such as someone attacking Israel?

Lest we forget, during 9/11, the military were conducting various airforce exercises, one of which dealt with Planes being flown into Buildings.

Seems awfully suspicious, like telegraphing that your entire military will be practicing things, so if you want to strike pretend to be part of the exercise or some such.

A huge fleet consisting of four Carrier Strike Groups is currently deployed in the Pacific. Israel will conduct the largest military excersise in its history in about two weeks on April the sixth.

The Israeli military said Thursday that around 200 U.S. and Israeli officers had staged a computer-based battle simulation designed to improve coordination between the two countries' armed forces.


And this:

21st of March:
Military action in Iran would be disaster - Annan
Dick Cheney tour sparks Iran war rumours
Russian FM warns military action on Iran 'disastrous'

Is something in the make here? A false flag operation perhaps?

Israel needs to do this, They are a small country where everyone of military age is in the reserves to protect themselves against an invasion. Now if Syria was friendly to Israel like Jordan then they wouldn't need it so much, But when you take the fact that they can still be attacked from all sides then yes this is still needed. This is an exercise for a good defense.

I am not saying they should not, nor am I trying to judge. However, it looks like something is in the make here...

Yep an exercise. Israel will not just haul off an attack anyone unless they have solid proof that they are about to be attacked or are getting attacked. Everyone thought that they were going to pound Gaza until it was turned to pure rubble a few weeks ago until they came out and did that little limited strike in Gaza to weaken them some.

When they made this announcement for the exercise it kind of makes everyone thing they will not be launching any full scale attack on Gaza, Hesbola or Syria. I mean this could be a cover for such an attack however thats not their MO. I hope they smash the terrorist in the ground because I'm tired of them not letting the Israelis just live in peace. Hesbola and Hammas really need to have their butts removed from the face of our planet for what they did in 2006. Who knows however everyone is getting ready for the big war, When it will start is anyones guess. One stupid move by Hesbola, Syria or Iran and its game on and this time we wont stop until they are completely destroyed.
