Exactly. Maybe this is why are starting to see some military brass come forward with letters like in the OP? Sounds like the Israelis may be pulling
the plug on diplomacy, and are coming to announce it. And then putting everyone else in the position of "who's side are you on, anyway?" But for what.
So where is ISRAELI evidence that Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons? On a laptop? Nuh uh. Not good enough.
Israel, just like Ron Paul, chooses its battles wisely. For you don't see Israel questioning why Russia or China should be "allowed" to have nuclear
weapons. If Israel sent a contingent of IDF to Georgia, the Russians would still bring to bear overwhelming force, as is exemplified, many times over,
in modern warfare. And as was exemplified in Georgia itself the last time- to a quiet US administration, that ultimately decided they better not start
WW3 over the issue.
If the Russians saw they were beat on the ground with new Israeli weapon systems, they'd simply launch some small tactical nukes and be done with it.
And if air strikes started hurting them, they'd start taking out populations. This is their intention now, and logical methodology. And they've been
pretty vocal about it in the press. They are not going to sweat the small stuff anymore. Their military was directed long ago to assume this position
and limit conventional weapons development, at least from some of the things I've read.
Latest news is US officials think Israel has already decided to strike Iran, as a lone wolf. Everyone's saying "diplomacy" still, while Israel is
ready to move. Israel is so terrified of Iran getting a nuke that they've got blinders on. They want INSANE amounts of IAEA intrusion and inspection
in Iran, and yet they will refuse any for themselves. Any at ALL.
I imagine that top US military brass are potentially offended that Israel would dare go it alone, or dare cut ties to act unilaterally. After all the
long years... I have hope too that they are saying "enough." If Israel attacks Iran and all hell breaks loose, then let the place turn to glass while
we go get in our bunkers and screw them, and the American people. At least Russia took care of its own.
