Iraqi airspace used by Israel, sources say


www.metimes.com

BAGHDAD, July 10 (UPI) -- Israeli fighter jets are thought to be using Iraqi airspace and U.S. bases in Iraq to prepare for an attack on Iranian nuclear facilities, Iraqi sources said.

The Iraqi news network Nahrainnet cited anonymous sources in the Iraqi Defense Ministry saying Israeli jets have used Jordanian air space to land at U.S. airbases in Iraq for the past month.

The source said the jets "are probably" part of a training exercise to prepare for an attack against Iran. U.S. cargo planes, unmanned drones and other aerial vehicles have increased their flights during the past few weeks as well, the sources claimed.

Honestly, I haven't considered this possibility. Yet, it seems so plausible! That would eliminete the problem of Israel's jets range.

However, I can't say a thing about this source's reliability...

i would like to see the reactions from the Iraqis and the medani army (militia)
Iraq being majority Shi, they have had their ties with Iran blosseming over the last few months.

under saddam Iraq and Iran were foes
under the new regieme they are closer then ever.

if this is true can we expect the militia to step up attacks
and i am woundering if the US just did this without consulting the new goverment of Iraq (or is it ask the Iraqi goverment on small matters? )

We are, again, sadly reminded that the US-enforced genocide in Iraq is all about regional control and nothing else. Genociding millions in order to advance their world domination agenda. can't you see what the US zionist regime has become ?

I wonder is this might be an Iranian casus belli. Since some of the "intel" about these maneuvers is from the Iranian's. That could say "the Iraqi's are siding with the U.S. and Israel therefore we can step up our al quds operations in the country."
Incidentally, this is being reported on J-Post as well.

Things are heating up!

Obs out.

It could be a means of Psychological Warfare. As to which side initiated these news leaks is any one's guess. One thing for certain is that ALL of the Military Intelligence units (S-2 & G2) across the region are working overtime, not to mention "Other Spooks" stretched far & wide.

Fox News carried this brief report concerning Israeli training over Iraq this morning.

Perhaps more substantive info may be leaked soon. Generally speaking, whenever such an OP is being formulated & data is leaked, it is basically a means of sending a heads up communique that things are quite serious. If the Israelis are actually flying pre-mission ops, they are sending Tehran a very specific message. It translates to something like, " ...we are going to interrupt your tea time."

The Israeli Air Force just unveiled their new Intelligence Gathering Aircraft.

One thing is for certain, if the Israelis feel that there is a serious threat to them, they WILL take affirmative action to protect their interests.

It will be very interesting to see who is drawn into this madness. My question is "Why does the Iranians want to destroy Israel?" One answer is that Hamas & other wild card groups would stand to gain property.

Please stop with your propaganda and opinions.
Genocide of millions??

Care to provide any proof or is this your lame opinion?
I think you need to look at the actual numbers:

Iraq body count

And the unfortunate civilians who are killed is NOT genocide! The U.S. and allied forces are NOT intentionally killing civilians and if you think otherwise, that would be preposterous.
You should blame the terrorists for wearing civilian clothes and make the homes of Iraqi's civilians their base of operation.

There have been enough scientific publications and threads debunking pentagon propaganda to safely assume for anyone interested in what's really going on that around 1.2 million Iraqi civilians have been killed by madman Bush so far. These are full-fledged genocidal proportions, there is no point in arguing over that. Together with Clintons 1.5 million dead iraqi civilians, the US-enforced genocide in Iraq is nearing Hitlerian proportions.

Oh ergoli, you are so pessimistic. What with 'shock and awe' and 'white phosphorus' we were merely intending to bring FREEDOM everywhere.
What? you have no chinese yellow ribbon on your suv?! How darest you!
Oh, I forgot, Saddam was 'a bad man'. That would totally reprieve us of 100's of thousands of fatalities.
Scotty, beam me the hell out of here now!

To bad the link I posted is not a pentagon publication.

Sorry, but the facts remain that there have been under 100K civilian deaths no matter how much you wish it was otherwise so you can make your lame arguments.

I wouldn't consider somebody a civilian just because they are not wearing a uniform.

bodycount.org is counting only casualties reported by american mainstream press, which is factually a pentagon source and nothing else. Many threads have debunked the love affair between the american media and the pentagon. Serious scientific studies have put the total death toll at 1.2 million, this is of course including all dead due to malnutrition, lack of medical treatment etc.. as a consequence of american warcrimes.

I guess it's to bad they DON'T only use american mainstream media press.
Do you always lie or do you enjoy being disingenuous?
If you would have read the link you would have known:

"IBC’s documentary evidence is drawn from crosschecked media reports of violent events leading to the death of civilians, or of bodies being found, and is supplemented by the careful review and integration of hospital, morgue, NGO and official figures."

Where does it specify U.S. media? It's all media plus other methods like hospital and morgue reports. So please get your facts straight.

I have debunked your first two problems with this link. First you thought it was a pentagon website and then you believed they only used U.S. media reports as a source. Both your points have been debunked.

You have no more excuses. The link I provided is the actual civilian death numbers no matter how you wish and pray otherwise because you believe it helps make your lame and ridiculous argument.


Iraq body count


Serious scientific studies have put the total death toll at 1.2 million

No, those are 'guesstimates' and purposefully skewed numbers by radical liberal with an agenda. Please stop being ignorant and try to see your propaganda for what it really is.

Huh? What?

Can you read?
I am not wanting anything. I am only pointing out false or purposefully skewed information. Stop your nonesense and point your questions to the originator of the false information.
