The Jericho III is supposed to be for nuclear attacks but Israel could just change the nuclear warhead to deliver a conventional payload.

before the PC police took over Hollywood, the common cowboy and Indians strategy was to shoot the Chief and the rest of the Indians would not fight.
Iran is controlled by a barbaric bunch of mullahs and one “Chief”, I believe that cowboy and Indian strategy is going to be the result.
I do think the Israeli Navy could launch a few missiles, as well, from the Gulf.

Seventh. Obama orders the US to interdict and attack the Israeli aerial strike force. What would the US military do. What wold the US citizenry do?

Israel knows that it cannot count on our Hussein for assistance. He will criticize any attack on Iran. And should Iran launch terror operations against the US, here or abroad, Hussein will excuse them as necessary/reasonable or God knows what, laying the blame squarely on Israel.

Another strategic move by Israel would be to leave one warhead on a Jericho III missile, take out Qom and the Mullahs at the same time they take out the nuclear sites. That would be an excellent way to straighten out more than one problem in Iran....

In this article, I see some commentary about USA/USSR cold war relations contributing to the MAD scenario being workable. But I see no references to how Russia and the hard line communist, Putin would react to an Israeli attack. A lot of Biblical scholars seem to indicate that Russia represents the GOG army of the book of Revelation. Putin might
very well be the final commander of the GOG army.
The Russian response here might set up a Biblical prophesy in Ezekiel 38 & 39, wherein GOG (Russia) invades or massively attacks Israel. The fulfillment of the prophesy is that the Russian attack fails spectacularly and not one single Israeli casualty results. Not a hair is touched on the heads of the People of God. Further it is incontrovertible evidence that there has been a Divine intervention, no other explanation is possible and it sparks revival in Israel.
I know this article was a secular military and political analysis of the situation, but since Israel stands at the center of both Christian and Islamic end times prophesy, this is linkage is unavoidable. I'll bet the Ayatollah and the Mullahs are doing the same thing with their prophesies, as well. Another Biblical prophesy concerning this scenario is the one pertaining to Syria noted in Isaiah 17 concerning the utter destruction of Damascus. I think that a tight countdown to both is underway. The lighting of the fuse might very well be an Israeli attack on Iran.
The Atheists here on FR will no doubt jump in here but the nonreligious consequences outlined in this secular article are still potentially catastrophic and terrifying, all by themselves. My adding the Christian angle simply adds another dimension or layer to the overall scenario. That's all.

Jericho III payload is 500kg.
A sufficiently serious ground penetrating weapon is probably 2200kg.

(The residents of Iroquois territory may not determine whether Jews may live in Jerusalem.)
Totally ridiculous speculation about something that will never happen. Israel can’t even build housing in sections of Jerusalem without getting heaped on by the world community, including the United States. And anyone thinks they’ll attack Iran? What an excellent justification that would give the world, to dismantle Israel, scatter its frightened population, and carpet it with welcoming rose petals for the muslims.

Israel should prepare for the eventual hostilities from the fascist in the US whitehouse as well as from the antisemites in Europe, and from the so-called muslim world, but they should also simply do what they have to do to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Unlike the fascist in the Whitehouse, whom history will remember as being one of the worst American presidents ever, bar none, history will look favorably on Israel's heroic actions to deprive the messianic monomaniacs in Tehran the ultimate in weapons of mass terror, nuclear weapons.
