We've been hearing quite a bit of this in the media over the past few days, and now G2/WND have chimed in with some commentary and analysis.




It is important to understand, and be aware of the fact Iranian military planners are active in assessing the risk factor for their nuclear complexes, and they are taking all necessary and possible counter measures available to them.





Israeli experts stress there are less than three years before the site goes warm. It was of paramount importance to destroy a cold reactor, knowing the destruction of a warm one could lead to a new Chernobyl-like ecological disaster. Israeli planners are obviously working under the pressure of a timing factor, probably trying to figure out if and when the Iranian reactor will go warm. Scientists carefully bear in mind the ripple effect of such a scenario, saying that although the Busher province is sparsely inhabited, it is close to other centers on both sides of the Persian Gulf.





A retired Israeli air force general, a veteran of many sophisticated operations, told G2B: "There is no problem to plan an operation and to destroy the complex, but the skies of the Middle East are not as open as they were 23 years ago."

Woo hoo....another pawn is moved into place for the big chess game that is WWIII.... Great time to be alive, eh kiddies???


Yeah, we've been hearing about this, and no doubt, Isreal won't stand for Iran building nukes... The problem is going to be the Arab backlash when Isreal gets away with it...

Of course, I'm totally against any Militant Islamic Regime toting nukes, but it's a real catch 22 situation....

The thing is, from Israel's point of view, it cant afford to have a nearby enemy with nuclear weapons, because Israel is so small, that just one wave in a nuclear attack with virtually wipe out the entire nation.
So unless Iran stops what its doing (or seemingly doing), then Israel will attack the nuclear sites. And they will have to attack them soon because if they go warm, as the article says, then there's a risk of spreading radioactive dust all over the region.

So the clock really is ticking, and it doesnt look like Iran is going to back down.

The thing is, what will be the result of all that? Iran will try and launch a counterattack on Israel, which will probably spark a full scale war between them. Syria may very well get involved too. Very difficult to figure out where things would go....

I'm not so sure Iran would respond in a military fashion... They may just use it as leverage to ease some of the restrictions it has now, to allow a more pronounced buildup, with full permissions of those who previously opposed it....and they'd get such permission, just to keep the peace a little while longer, till the # really hits the fan....(which is just down the pike no doubt...)

Yehaaaaaaa! Were all on an express elevator to HELL!

Goin' down!


Nah good on the Israelis, doin what i'd do, removing the one thing that stops the lunatic muslim world from wiping out Israel then turning their mouth foaming nuclear powered doctrine on the west.

I'd say dont wait, blow the reactor up now using full force.

Not respond? Are you kidding? After spending years researching and constructing at a cost of untold billions, they get their facilities blown off the face of the earth (along with all the workers) by their arch-enemy and they don't respond?
That would be like America doing nothing after 9/11...

It's not like taking out a SAM site or a radar post which can be easily rebuilt, I'm pretty sure Iran would launch a counterattack of some degree straight after the attack.

Counter attack, ooh a few antiquated migs, ww2 era warships and soviet tanks whilst their soldiers waste their ammo firing their guns into the air.

Ooh i bet the Israelis (the most technologically advanced and experienced fighting force in the Mid East) are scared.

I was speaking to one of my democrat friends today, I myself am a bit conservative,
, anyway, it is a pressure cooker over there, don't know when the lid will blow. The Israeli's and Americans and British all got their fingers in it, the Iranians with nukes, ain't no way they will allow that to stand. I think the Iranians should watch themselves closely, I don't think the Russians are too keen on the Mullah's wielding nukes, or the Turks, or Jordanians for that matter. I think Iran could be brought to it's knees fairly quickly in an all out mid east war.

Exactly, Israel isnt infallible so to nip it in the bud i think the'll attack in the next 6-10 months and i dont think the'll muck about im talkin a major airstrike.

I also think there may be a limeted number of attacks on Iranian Airbases and SAM sites too that may be a threat to Israeli operations.

No, I'm not kidding... The fruits of the research are still there, even after a facility is blown up. They're really only out millions of dollars...which is nothing in the grand scheme of things, as they'd make bake BILLIONS by what they'd likely gain after standing down to such an attack. This is of course, if they're smart about it.... If I were in their shoes, I'd build such a dummy facility also, just to look like the good guy internationally, and get some of my shackles off....

Oh, and I wouldn't count on the Russians to assist here....as most of the goods are theirs, hehe...they're likely going to sit completely out of this game for QUITE some time to come (at least militarily speaking)....

Attacking Iran's Nuclear Facilities is going to eventually happen, I believe with full backing of the U.S Government. Iran is the next Country on the list for America.

The response from the leadership in Iran is something I'm sure that has been considered.

Well, if the attack the site relatively soon, there is the 7 US battle groups by China plus the ones involved in Iraq. That would provide quite a few fighter/bombers in the area that the US could use. Let us not forget all the other missile ships in the battle groups with anti-missile missiles plus cruse missiles, plus if necessary, nuclear tipped missiles. We don't want Iran having nuclear missiles any more than Israel does. Another trump card however is Pakistan. The world knows they have nukes and they are a Muslim country, what they might do is a little unknown. The problem with Irans attacking Israel is that they have nuclear weapon and would not hesitate to use them. Boom, Teheran is gone.... If other countries got involved, they could be turned into glass bowls also.

"A few antiquated migs?"

Ever heard of the F-14 Tomcat? They got about 25 of those operational.
How about the MiG 29 Fulcrum which "equals or surpasses the F-15C in several areas" -Globalsecurity.org Forget that?

"ww2 era warships"

Oh I'm sorry, I wasn't aware that World War 2 was still ongoing in 1993 when Iran purchased Kilo Class submarines from Russia, or in 2002 when Iran took control of C-14 missile boats.

"soviet tanks"

Really? Well I must say, I always thought that the 200 Chieftain tanks in Iran's army came from the UK, but I guess I'm wrong there too, eh? I wonder where they got those M-60's too...Hmmmm....

"firing their guns"

Guns, yes, I'd imagine so, along with Rapier and HAWK surface to air missiles.

But really, I'd say Israel is probably more worried about the Shahab-3 long range missile, which went though its final testing last summer, and can reach Israel with a choice of chemical, bio, HE or (at a later stage) nuclear warheads.



Nobody is saying Iran is a match for Israel, but you certainly need to brush up things I think.

But the plane is only as good as its pilot. I don't think the Iranian pilots are any match for the IAF. As for the F-14, its most useful function is as a long range anti-aircraft missile launcher. It has awesome radar range, but if they don't have the long range AAM's, like the Phoenix, then their utility is seriously diminished.

Isreal will attack Iran as they have done in the past to keep nuclear dominance in the middle east. It won't be full scale, simply a few missle attacks on key targets, as they don't want a full blown war. This will be done with silent consent from the US.

Iran won't do anything bout it because at the first sign of retaliation Isreal will send a few nukes at their army and destroy it.

No direct WWIII thingsgoing on here (though down the road who knows).

iran make it own version of Phonix.

Iran has the largest stock pile of comical and biological weapons in the Middle East. Israel will never use their nuke on Iran cause guess what happen if they do.

What's that old Chinese curse: "May you live in interesting times"? Holy Guacamole, we do live in interesting times.
I have this sinking feeling that the extreme religious nuts are in control in the Arab world, the Jewish world, and much of the so-called "Christian" Western world. Everyone seems to be pushing the game to extremes and this can only bring about BAD trouble.
Oh, don't mind my rant. I'm just hoping, against hope, that things will get better instead of worse.
joey

I sometimes wander how much did big industry had on influencing ww I , ww II .. If you look at it after each of these wars big industry became more and more powerful and influential on our societies We all know how profitable war is. Sooo I guess after ww III , leaders of big industry will become our new kings and masters. Thats is if there is anything left.
