Time for an Israeli Strike?


www.washingtonpost.com

With Iran's hard-line mullahs and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps unmistakably back in control, Israel's decision of whether to use military force against Tehran's nuclear weapons program is more urgent than ever

In short, the stolen election and its tumultuous aftermath have dramatically highlighted the strategic and tactical flaws in Obama's game plan. With regime change off the table for the coming critical period in Iran's nuclear program, Israel's decision on using force is both easier and more urgent.

Well it looks like John Bolton is under the impression that an Israeli strike on Iran is pretty much a guarantee. That is what I got from the article anyhow. Does this guy still have contacts that would give him inside information on Impending Israeli strike? I guess only time will tell, but here lately it seems there is something in the air that suggest they “the Israelis “ are truly thinking about doing this. This is just my opinion but I would guess soon. Then again people have been saying this for years I guess we will see

A strike by Israel would bring Iran closer together...not push them further apart.Anyway,i can't see it,the amount of reports that have came out about Israel and Iran is huge,still no closer than we were years ago.I don't think its a viable option.

Mr. Bolton is nuts. I can't believe they publish his crazy stuff. Look at this nutty quote:

Quote from article:
"And anyone who believes the Revolutionary Guard Corps will abandon its weaponization and ballistic missile programs probably believes that there was no fraud in Iran's June 12 election."

This guy has some serious issues. There is absolutely no proof of nuclear "weaponization" programs in Iran, or even election fraud. There's actually more proof of election fraud in America in 2000 than there is of Election fraud in Iran in 2009


And this guy wants to attack Iran?? He thinks that telling them Iranians that we're coming to liberate them will convince them to throw rose petals at our feet as we bomb them to death? I'm not even liberated in America, and this article is bull.

The sad reality is what most fail to realize is that Iran is a much more formidable and capable entity as compared to say, Hezbollah. If Israel issues a first strike the US cannot interject itself and must let Israel fall if need be. Hence why The US did not help Israel when they first striked Hezbollah in 2007.

No nation on Earth can attack another nation and not expect some kind of retalliation.

That would be like if I kept on poking someone in the chest day in and day out, eventually the person I'm poking is going to knock me out cold.

Israel will no longer be backed to the point where we continually turn a blind eye everytime they get a bug up thier tail.

Interesting timing - there are numerous reports out at the moment not only criticizing Israel for war crimes in their attacks against civilians but also highlighting their own use of civilians as shields - this has come from both Amnesty and the UN....

washingtontimes.com...

Now would be a good time to create a diversion from the truth of Zionist genocide.

It is also quite clear that the Obama administration is playing Israel very well - forcing the one issue that Israel will never back down on, illegal settlements, and at the same time backing Irans right to nuclear power

www.washingtonexaminer.com...

Of course Obama gave direct and incontrovertible approval for Israel to do what it needs to do in order to defend itself in the meetings with Netanyahu and Obama -

It is of paramount consideration however to remember Russias parting words in the Georgian scuffle - that this will not be the end and the gloves were off - meaning weapons will be sold to Venezuela and more importantly Iran.

The deal was signed a year ago and Russia is delivering on its promises to deliver the s-300 air defence system

www.haaretz.com...


All of the above absolutely points to a strike against Iran - however this will not occur without a very clear and obvious red flag operation to provide a cover

www.bloomberg.com...

I would suggest this will not occur for at least 6-12 months when something can be put in place - I would look for something out of the ordinary such as a strike against Israeli interests internationally - such as attacks on mosques, shipping in the med or suez, or even a large scale operation against Lebanon, Syria or Jordan. Egypt or Turkey could also be used as scape goats in order to push against Islamic interests in an attempt to cite a response.

There are finally two obvious and clear positions from which the red flags will emerge - Iraq being the most obvious. As America withdraws Iran will be accused of capitalising and attempting to take over - this has already started.

The Iranians will be accused of meddling and then the US will be asked to surpress this meddling by the Iraqis, this will then be used as a pretext to strike against Iran. The Iranians will be accused of declaring any attack on them will result in an attack on Israel (please see first gulf war) which will result in "scuds" being fired into Israel allowing them to join the war.

The only other alternative to this is the ongoing meddling of Russia = a second breakout in Georgia will almost certainly escalate into a regional war with Iran and the Israel will be Expected to join as a regional ally.

Again, nothing for at least six months though - this will be perfect timing as the economy will be SERIOUSLY tanking in six months and this will be the distraction needed.

cheers....

except that hezbollah - being better equipped than the lebanese army , have blown up using ATGM` the latest isaeli tanks and nearly sank a warship (or 2)

and don`t use suicide bomber - they have far more effecive toys , and don`t operate ouside of lebanon.

They also hacked into the Israeli satellites and military communications - they were contacting generals at home telling them their own plans to show how vulnerable they were.

They were flying their own remote drones and ALL their missiles were fired either on timers or remotely.
