    Default Revealed: Israel plans nuclear strike on Iran

    Revealed: Israel plans nuclear strike on Iran
    Uzi Mahnaimi, New York and Sarah Baxter, Washington

    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.

    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.

    Under the plans, conventional laser-guided bombs would open “tunnels” into the targets. “Mini-nukes” would then immediately 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.

    The plans, disclosed to The Sunday Times last week, have been prompted in part by the Israeli intelligence service Mossad’s assessment that Iran is on the verge of producing enough enriched uranium to make nuclear weapons within two years.

    Israeli military commanders believe conventional strikes may no longer be enough to annihilate increasingly well-defended enrichment facilities. Several have been built beneath at least 70ft of concrete and rock. However, the nuclear-tipped bunker-busters would be used only if a conventional attack was ruled out and if the United States declined to intervene, senior sources said.

    Israeli and American officials have met several times to consider military action. Military analysts said the disclosure of the plans could be intended to put pressure on Tehran to halt enrichment, cajole America into action or soften up world opinion in advance of an Israeli attack.

    Some analysts warned that Iranian retaliation for such a strike could range from disruption of oil supplies to the West to terrorist attacks against Jewish targets around the world.

    Israel has identified three prime targets south of Tehran which are believed to be involved in Iran’s nuclear programme:


    Natanz, where thousands of centrifuges are being installed for uranium enrichment

    A uranium conversion facility near Isfahan where, according to a statement by an Iranian vice-president last week, 250 tons of gas for the enrichment process have been stored in tunnels

    A heavy water reactor at Arak, which may in future produce enough plutonium for a bomb
    Israeli officials believe that destroying all three sites would delay Iran’s nuclear programme indefinitely and prevent them from having to live in fear of a “second Holocaust”.

    The Israeli government has warned repeatedly that it will never allow nuclear weapons to be made in Iran, whose president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has declared that “Israel must be wiped off the map”.

    Robert Gates, the new US defence secretary, has described military action against Iran as a “last resort”, leading Israeli officials to conclude that it will be left to them to strike.
    Israeli pilots have flown to Gibraltar in recent weeks to train for the 2,000-mile round trip to the Iranian targets. Three possible routes have been mapped out, including one over Turkey.

    (page 2)

    Air force squadrons based at Hatzerim in the Negev desert and Tel Nof, south of Tel Aviv, have trained to use Israel’s tactical nuclear weapons on the mission. The preparations have been overseen by Major General Eliezer Shkedi, commander of the Israeli air force.

    Sources close to the Pentagon said the United States was highly unlikely to give approval for tactical nuclear weapons to be used. One source said Israel would have to seek approval “after the event”, as it did when it crippled Iraq’s nuclear reactor at Osirak with airstrikes in 1981.

    Scientists have calculated that although contamination from the bunker-busters could be limited, tons of radioactive uranium compounds would be released.

    The Israelis believe that Iran’s retaliation would be constrained by fear of a second strike if it were to launch its Shehab-3 ballistic missiles at Israel.

    However, American experts warned of repercussions, including widespread protests that could destabilise parts of the Islamic world friendly to the West.

    Colonel Sam Gardiner, a Pentagon adviser, said Iran could try to close the Strait of Hormuz, the route for 20% of the world’s oil.

    Some sources in Washington said they doubted if Israel would have the nerve to attack Iran. However, Dr Ephraim Sneh, the deputy Israeli defence 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.”

    I've been watching this one closely for almost a year now. There have been reports of various attack plans from both Israel and the US.

    I don't believe the US will attack, retaliation by Iran would be centred on fighting into Iraq, something that would destroy the country.

    If Israel really is dumb enough to go in like this, it would do it without any "official" foreign approval. This approval after the fact means quite simply, "Hey, if you get away with it and the damage is not too bad, good".

    And I wish articles would not keep referencing this "wipe Israel from the map" comment, because if I'm not mistaken what was actually said was "wipe the state of Israel from the map of the middle east", which was later followed by comments about relocating Israel to Europe. I could be wrong.

    What is needed is not military might or even sanctions. What is really needed is for the heavy hitters, Russia and China, to sit down with Ahmedinajad and start pushing very hard. And they could. Russia has alot of interest in Iran.

    Nobody wants another war. It is not in anyone in the region's interest to start another war. The only people who will benefit are conglomerates rubbing their hands as oil hits $200 per barrel but if it does get to that, it will escalate.

    I dont see why Israel uses the same thing that worked last time. Fly in with about 8 F-16's and just blow the shit out of the nuclear plant with laser guided bombs. I was watching the story about when Israel took out the nuclear plant in Iraq back in the 80's on the Military channel and to me, it sounds like they could pull it off again. Theres no reason to use nukes against a nuclear reactor, that would just make one HELL OF A BIG EXPLOSION.

    I'd love if it was possible to split Earth to natural Eastern/Western hemispheres and let them do whatever they want with each other. Bunch of morons on either side.

    Thanks for the link Phatie. These predictions, from whatever the source, always make for interesting reading.

    Notice how no sources are named nor how they came into possession of this knowledge. Luckily, I was able to track down the concerned citizen who's the source behind this story:

    Axxman300, that is a disgusting picture and I wish you wouldn't have posted it.

    Do you think the following is just sheer propaganda as well?
