“Israel should prepare ‘military option’ on Iran”

Assuming arguendo that Israel is not already prepared to strike Iran, Israel's just cranking up the hyperbolic drama to get the US to do its dirty work.

They have nothing on Iran. Iran hasn't attacked a country since the Iraq/Iran war and even that was instigated by the US.

Meanwhile, Israel has demonstrated, and continues to demonstrate that it's ready to bomb a nation back to the stone ages at the drop of a hat. Israel is a loose canon, above the law and beyond all reason.

Israelis cannot be trusted. But, that doesn't stop them from yammering away.
Israel should consider a military option to prevent archfoe Iran from developing nuclear weapons, the former head of the Mossad intelligence service said, AFP reported.

"Israel should prepare itself for the worst of possibilities, even for a military option," Shavtain Shavit told public television, pointing out that efforts by world powers to get Iran to stop enriching uranium have not succeeded.

He said Iran has a "regime of fanatics who see it as their duty to exterminate infidels and make the world a Muslim world. The day that they have an atomic weapon and their finger on the trigger, the world will be completely different."
Let's see how this statement squares up with reality . . .
Israel is widely believed to be the only country in the Middle East to have nuclear weapons, although it has never confirmed or denied it holds such an arsenal.

Iran insists it is exercising a right to develop civilian atomic energy, and has refused to comply with a UN Security Council resolution that gave it an August 31 deadline to halt enrichment of uranium.
It doesn't. The truth is that Israel has a stock pile of WMDs and is a threat to world peace. Iran does not and is not.

This is just another pack of lies by Israel to get the world - specifically US - to do its demonic work for it.
“I don’t think an Israeli strike is likely at all,” says Mark Fitzpatrick, proliferation analyst at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, a London-based think-tank. “Israel could not do it as well as the US could do it.” An Israeli attack would reap all the disadvantages of a US attack in terms of reprisals, more so if it provoked direct retaliation. But it would secure fewer benefits in that Israel would not be able to knock out any sites.
I'll leave it to you to guess who he's afraid would suffer 'direct retaliation' and who would derive 'fewer benefits' if Israel - not the US - were to attack Iran. Then you can decide whose interests are being served if the US exercises a 'military option' against Iran.

Another excellent post, Qrswave. But one correction: "Iran hasn't attacked a country since the Iran Iraq war" Iran never attacked Iraq, it was attacked by Iraq. Saddam's forces invaded Iran, armed, supported and encouraged to do so by the US.
Iran has not attacked another country in more than a hundred years.

Israel's nuclear arsenal was documented approximately, 25 years ago by a nuclear scientist who worked at Dimona. Invariably, France, the US and others are aware of Israeli fissile bombs through intelligence agency. Moreover, there have been dozens of books written on the subject. The fact that Israel has 300 nuclear weapons is information in the public domain. Furthermore, Israel has stockpiles of biological and chemical weapons at its disposal.

Mordechai Vanunu, a Moroccan Jew, alerted the world about Israeli nuclear proliferation through Australian and British newspapers by submitting documentary and photos evidence. Mr. Vanunu left Israel thereafter to live abroad, but was lured by a female Mossad agent and brought back to Israel to stand trial. He received a 22 year sentence for enlightening the world about the Israeli nuclear threat.

France helped Israel build its heavy water reactors and was instrumental in their civilian and military nuclear program. France was a military ally of Israel throughout the first decades of Israeli existence -- supplanted by an Israelo-US pact in the late 60s early 70s. Therefore, the Israel "bomb" is well documented.

It's not an Islamic bomb that the Zionists are afraid of, Pakistan has had the bomb since the mid 1980s. Note that Pakistan doesn't formally, recognize Israel - however, under Musharraf-Bush "war on terror" pact Israeli forces have worked with Pakistan. This also took place during the Reagan effort in Afghanistan against the Soviets - Israel was used as a third party arms supplier as well as other functions.

The Israelis are concerned that an Iranian bomb would severely, limit their ability to frustrate Palestinian and neighboring states' efforts to regain occupied land. The Zionist dream of "EretzYsrael" or greater Israel lives on in the hearts of the Israeli elite and is manifested in their policies in the region.

This was the precise reason for Israeli bombings of Libyan and Iraqi nuclear facilities. As long as Israel has the nuclear hammer over the heads of the Arab states it can stall diplomatic efforts to settle within an internationally recognized and defined border. The Israelis do not want peace in the middle east, they have sought only pieces of neighboring states.
