Hezbollah rockets part of Iran and Israel's political game of chess


www.timesonline.co.uk

There is no better place to understand Iranian strategy than the Laleh Park in central Tehran, where young and old gather most afternoons to engage in an ancient form of combat.

Chess has helped sharpen the Persian mind for centuries and may explain how today’s regime is plotting its next move to become a superpower.

Some time over the coming two to three years, Iran will be able to build its first nuclear weapon, granting it membership of the world’s most elite club and putting it on par with

If diplomatic efforts fail to halt Tehran, then there is only one last obstacle — the open threat by Israel to destroy Tehran’s nuclear sites before it can complete an atomic weapon.

Israel has the political will and the military muscle to execute an attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities. The range may be beyond anything attempted by the Israeli Air Force, but Iran’s conventional forces are outdated and defences weak. It is assumed that Arab states, whose airspace Israeli bombers and fighters would have to fly through to reach Iran, would secretly cooperate on a mission to blunt the Persian threat.

That is why Tehran is investing so heavily in its Lebanese proxy Hezbollah. The Shia Muslim militia has rebuilt and strengthened its arsenal since the bloody war it fought with the Israelis in 2006. It has amassed tens of thousands of rockets and missiles capable of bombarding half the country.

Israeli planners have no doubt that should they make the fateful decision to attack Iran, they will provoke massive retaliation on an unprecedented scale. The most densely populated areas of the country would come under Hezbollah range, including Tel Aviv, Haifa and Ben Gurion, Israel’s only international airport.

Israel may be able to take Iran’s queen. But in the process it could put itself into check.


Hmmm let me elaborate on what this all could actually mean.....

Checkmate for the Iranian regime = pawns from Russia/China destroyed.

Russia sends more pawns + rooks + knights = checkmate for Israel = US pawn destroyed.

Survivors decide to make peace after several more decades of fighting with just sticks and stones.

US & Russia/China concentrate on proxy wars elsewhere after oil agreements in the middle east made between all parties.

Or finally just World War 3 = checkmate for 6 billion people. 700 million survivors decide to finally make world peace.

China Russia and Iran are salivating at the possibility of israel taking a first strike.

They will call israel a terror nation and give the Arab countries the green light with their backing.

Then they call Obama, and ask him what side he is on.

If he says China's, the israelis have just fulfilled their prophecy of the nations of the world turning against israel in the last days before end.

By the way israel is acting and completely disregarding world opinion, I believe they are trying to self fulfill more prophecy.

They seem to be into that kind of thing, they get israel taken away by their god as punishment, then use the worlds biggest tragedy to steal it back without god's permission.

It's dangerous when the people in power are radical, no matter what religion they are.
