IAF Train Intensively for Iran Strike with Mini-Nukes

Readers Number : 25922

10/11/2007 The Israel Air Force is training for a tactical nuclear strike on 
Iranian nuclear production facilities. The IAF is practicing for a mission to 
destroy key Iranian facilities, at least one with low-yield nuclear munitions, 
the Times of London reported. Citing "several Israeli sources," the Times said 
that two IAF squadrons are training to blow up an Iranian facility using a 
combination of precision laser bombs and low-yield nuclear "bunker-busters". The
Times report was supplemented by one from Fox News.

The attack would be the first with nuclear weapons since 1945, when the United 
States dropped atomic bombs on the Japanese cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The 
Israeli weapons would each have a force equivalent to one-fifteenth of the 
Hiroshima bomb, the Times said. Under the plans, the report said, conventional 
laser-guided bombs would open shafts into the targets. Then the "mini-nukes" 
would then be fired into a plant at Natanz, exploding deep underground to reduce
the risk of radioactive fallout.

"As soon as the green light is given, it will be one mission, one strike and the
Iranian nuclear project will be demolished," said one of the sources. Israeli 
intelligence recently announced that Iran is on the verge of producing enough 
enriched uranium to make nuclear weapons by 2009. Meir Dagan, head of Mossad, 
the Israeli intelligence service, told the Knesset, Israel's parliament, also 
believes that the Iranians will have a complete nuclear device by 2009. Israel 
has identified three prime targets south of Tehran believed to be central to 
Iran's nuclear program, the Times reported: Natanz, where thousands of 
centrifuges are being installed for uranium enrichment; A uranium conversion 
facility near Isfahan, and a heavy water reactor at Arak.

Ephraim Sneh, the former deputy Israeli defense minister, said last month: "The 
time is approaching when Israel and the international community will have to 
decide whether to take military action against Iran." But he lamented that "At 
the end of the day it is always down to the Jews to deal with the problem." The 
United States has described a strike against Iranian targets as a "last resort",
leading Israelis to believe that it will be left to the IAF to strike.

The Times, citing Israeli sources, said Israeli pilots have flown to Gibraltar 
in recent weeks to train for the 2,000-mile round trip to the Iranian targets. 
The report said that the air force squadrons are based at Hatzerim in the Negev 
desert and Tel Nof, south of Tel Aviv, under the personal supervision of Major 
General Eliezer Shkedy, commander of the Israeli Air Force, training to use 
Israel's arsenal of tactical nuclear weapons on the mission.

The Israelis believe that Iran's expected retaliation "would be constrained by 
fear of an Israeli second strike." The leak of a possible nuclear option by 
Israel may be intentional, US analysts have said. "In the cold war, we made it 
clear to the Russians that it was a virtual certainty that nukes would fly and 
fly early," said an American defense source. "Israel may be adopting the same 
tactics: 'You produce a weapon; you die'."

Iran must make efforts to mobilise the Muslim world as well, saudies, 
Pakistanians, Malaiyasians and others, even though they are US agents.

This so called " Israeli" preparation for an attack is nothing more than 
psychological warfare... The Jews know that they can only attack the mighty Iran
with the consent from their master- USA...They don't have enough fuel to do an 
imminent attack... Iran needs to be in a constant "high alert" 
status...Hopefully, Iran has agents in the Zionist estate- to keep an eye on 
their military movements...

Any sane person would know the pre-emptive use of nuclear weapons IS A CRIME 
AGAINST HUMANITY. The zionists control the US- why do you think ALL aspiring 
'presidetial candidates' have already sworn allegience to Israel? Because if 
they don't they won't be elected. In violation of international law the US has 
helped Israel acquire nukes. In violation of US law we continue to pay billions 
in tribute to a rogue nuclear country. Cheney is once again ignoring 
intelligence that does not agree with his preconceptions of Iran just as was 
done in Iraq. Israel is making Palestine the new Warsaw ghetto- liquidation is 
almost complete. The economic collapse of the US is at hand- they desperately 
need another fake 'war' to keep the dead dollar afloat and finish looting the 
country. There was a good reason God banished the Israelites in the past and it 
seems they haven't learned anything-time for it to happen again!

Damn, am I sick of hearing about the US bombing Iran....It's sickening, we have 
no right to attack a sovereign nation. Even IF Iran had even ONE nuclear weapon,
what's the harm? Israel has THREE HUNDRED of them, and we have TEN THOUSAND!! 
You could say that the "hard-line" leadership in Iran (certainly no more 
hard-line than Dubya) is suicidal and would use it no matter how we or Israel 
would retaliate, but most of Iran's general populace certainly aren't.

Who are the terrorists?
