Israel has planned the destruction of Iranian Nuclear Facilities

Posted by on March 12, 2005

Been wondering when that would happen…that is if it has happened at all. The London Times Online is reporting

ISRAEL has drawn up secret plans for a combined air and ground attack on targets in Iran if diplomacy fails to halt the Iranian nuclear programme.

Guess they’re not so secret if some newsy in London knows about them eh? Whatever, if anyone has the stones to do something this brazen it’s the Israelis. They certainly have the skills and hardware to pull it off. If the article is to be believed then US officials are willing to look away if all the diplomatic options fail.

Speaking of Diplomatic options…this from CNN

On Friday, the U.S. government dropped its opposition to Iran’s application for membership in the World Trade Organization, a move Europe had pressed for.

That followed an announcement from Britain, France and Germany agreeing to a U.S. demand. The so-called EU-3 said if Iran did not fulfill its international agreements — including a promise to halt uranium enrichment — they would support referring the issue to the U.N. Security Council.

The US also decided to allow some other “concessions” to Iran if they agreed to halt their nuclear ambitions. Not sure what I think about that. No. I’m QUITE CERTAIN what I think about that. I’m not at all happy about it. Iran should have one option…quit enriching uranium or face very real repercussions. “Very Real” repercussions does not mean a tongue lashing from the floor of the Security Council.

It’s sad, but these days anytime we start loosening our positions to get under the same sheets as the Europeans I start wondering about Motive. We know what the French are capable of and the Germans are…well…the Germans. During the Presidential elections last year Bush was constantly hammered about his “cowboy” approach and how he has isolated the US in the world community because he told Chirac to get bent. In the same TimesOnline article SecState Rice says

At a media availability in Washington, Rice said, “The key here was to establish with our European allies a common agenda, a common approach to the issue of getting the Iranians to live up to the international obligations which they have undertaken.”

Uh…yeah. I’m thinking this may just be an attempt by Bush to see if France has decided to play ball in the REAL world and not the play world they have chosen to live in. We’ll see what happens. Thankfully, Sharon has pocket aces if the EU flop doesn’t pan out.

    I don’t think Israel is going to hit Iran. Syria maybe, not Iran. At least not by themselves.

    On the other hand, I’d be willing to bet money that our Special Ops guys–Seal Team 6, Delta Forces, 75th Ranger Batallion, Recon Marines–are busy getting some serious intel data that we are going to drop on the whole freaking U.N. in the near future.

    Then we’ll see which side our “friends” (France, Germany, and Russia) are on.
