    Very, very scary stuff.


    Revealed: Israel plans nuclear strike on Iran

    Uzi Mahnaimi New York and Sarah Baxter Washington
    [​IMG]Israel has drawn up secret plans to destroy Iran’s uranium enrichment facilities with tactical nuclear weapons.

    Two Israeli air force squadrons are training to blow up an Iranian facility using low-yield nuclear “bunker-busters”, according to several Israeli military sources. NI_MPU('middle');The attack would be the first with nuclear weapons since 1945, when the United States dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Israeli weapons would each have a force equivalent to one-fifteenth of the Hiroshima bomb.

    True, or false, this information should never have been published. Freedom of the press must be built upon the idea of self-restraint. The only way this story should ever have been published is if Israel asked it to be. This type of story can do a lot of harm and create a very dangerous situation for the state of Israel.

    Scary, indeed.

    For the Israelis , the alternative may be even scarier.

    CNN (or Fox) just reported it on their evening news . . .

    . . . some analysts somewhere should be writing up their daily report to tell those powers that be - "we might get nuked . . . "

    I think those several military sources that leaked this secret attack plan were either leaking it as a possible deterrent to Iran, or they should be brought up on charges. I suspect the former.

    Can you imagine living here and having Canada and Mexico wanting us to be annihilated with the ability to work together, having a regional religon totally counter to ours, so much so that they want every single one us dead? Well that is what it is like for Israel surrounded by Muslims. We need to pray for Israel daily.

    I have a feeling that if the Israelis didn't want this story leaked that the story and those who sought to leak it would already be dead.

    We were just discussing this very thing. One hardly knows what to believe anymore, if some of these stories are really leaks, unintentional leaks, or intentional leaks for some other purpose.

    Israel told the world two years ago that they would not let Iran have nukes. This is not new news.

    I don't believe Israel should let Iran have nukes, especially since Iran's Leader, Mahmoud Iamaidiot (sp?) has already stated that he intends to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.

    I am not so sure they should use tatical nukes to get the job done. We opened the genie in 1945 but it has sort of been capped back in the bottle, who knows what the implications would be if used on people in this day and age.

    I think someone leaked this story to stir the pot and get things heated up on purpose. I do not know what that purpose is yet but I am sure it will come out.

    Let's just say it's not unexpected news.

    On the other hand the Israelis are noted for their ability to keep secrets. I agree they may have leaked this info themselves.

    No one at this point has any proof that Iran is attempting to build nuclear weapons.

    For some people it will take Tel-Aviv being vaporized to have proof that they have nuclear weapons.

    There is still tons of evidence supporting Iraq had WMDs and yet you have the left crying that because we didn't find them they never existed, yet they already used them on their own people. And what of the evidence supporting they had them? It is summarily dismissed by the left as being a hoax to get us into war and means nothing. Again they think we should have let them lobbed one into Israel or a western city before taking action. For even more on the left it will take the execution of their immediate families to really believe we are fighting against something and that this is not a political war drawn up by evil politicians for monetary gain and nothing more.

    The other sad thing regarding this topic is that if Iraq, or now Iran did or does wipe a city off the face of the planet then they will also blame this administration for NOT acting!

    Iraq did not have WMDs in March 2003 and no one has provided any proof whatsoever that Iran has nuclear weapons or is even attempting to build them.

    The neocons fooled most of us Americans about Iraq. I'll not allow myself to be led down that path again by them without solid, irrefutable proof.

    Besides, the U.S. is not in a position to fight a war with Iran. And the U.S. and world economies could not survive the $150/bbl.(at least) oil that would result from an attack on Iran and its retaliation.

    Israel today refuted this story in our morning paper.

    That is just sticking your head in the sand. Everyone on the planet knows they have WMDs, they used them on them on their own people. The US has uncovered over 500 chemical weapons of mass destruction since 2003...ever wonder why the liberal media doesn't cover that for more than a minute? See http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,200499,00.html

    Also, what is it with these people that think just because they weren't found they didn't exist at all. Where they hiding under a rock when the war was starting and we gave Iraq weeks to do something with them. The Russian Ambassador to Iraq personally gave Saddam possible war strategies the US would use against Iraq in February of 2003. Global Security.org reported:

    In a briefing for journalists reported on October 29, 2003, the director of the National Imagery and Mapping Agency said satellite images showed a heavy flow of traffic from Iraq into Syria just before the American invasion in March 2003. Retired Air Force Lieutenant General James Clapper Jr. said he believed "unquestionably" that illicit weapons material was transported into Syria and perhaps other countries. He said "I think people below the Saddam- Hussein-and-his-sons level saw what was coming and decided the best thing to do was to destroy and disperse. ... I think probably in the few months running up to the onset of the conflict, I think there was probably an intensive effort to disperse into private hands, to bury it, and to move it outside the country's borders."

    The biggest US screw up was giving the enemy the heads up that we were on the way. We should have took the sat pics the night before and ran in the next day knowing exactly where we were going. But bottom line again, it was not what the war was about anyway.



    I would guess that would take Little Rock being vaporized or another 3,000 being blown up close to your back yard. Even then I am sure we would have to provide proof that it wasn't an evil plot by our own government just to lead you down the wrong path.



    This I could agree with you on; however, it may be what it takes for us to to get off of our proverbial behinds and find an alternative source of fuel. We already have the technology and resources to make it happen, just not enough incentive and too many politicians and people that can actually make the change happen in cahoots with people in the oil business, including our very own first family.

    1) Put down the neocon kool-aid. :smilewinkgrin:

    2) Absolute nonsense.

    I don't buy into conspiracy theories as you intimated but apparently you do. :)

    Surely you don't believe this. Imagine: the poor president, secretary of state and secretary of defense (and their thousands upon thousdands of subordinates) could easily talk day after day - whenever they open their mouths, it's news - and have not bothered to say "Look, we really did find WMDs."

    Instead, "The weapons are thought to be manufactured before 1991 so they would not be proof of an ongoing WMD program in the 1990s."

    That some old, perhaps unuseable, WMDs were forgotten, or even squirrelled away, is not quite what Colin Powell described when he harangued the U.N. about mobile production facilities.
