Israel Planning Attacks On Iran
The Daily Mail ^ | June 30, 2010

Posted on 06/30/2010 6:35:29 AM PDT by Fennie

THE Daily Mail has learnt that Israel is massing warplanes in the Caucasus for an attack on Iran. Preparations are underway to launch the military attack form Azerbaijan and Georgia, reports Akhbar Al Khaleej, quoting military sources.

It has been reported that Israel was, in fact, training pilots in Turkey to launch the strike and was smuggling planes into Georgia using Turkish airspace, according to the sources.

Psychologically the war has begun. All these ‘revelations’ are part of it. The thing has to be done. The question now is how the US forces in the area will take part. Will they remain inert or will they participate or will they shoot down the Israeli lanes as has been obliquely threatened?

It seems like every few days I read something about Israel being on the verge of attacking Iran.

I think they've been on that verge for several years now, but still nothing happens.

I'm going to quit holding my breath.

She has a difficult road ahead.

Israel is not going to attack Iran without also taking out Hezzbollah, Syria, and Hamas and anybody else who gets in the way.

Yeah. And those ‘military sources’ are probably in Iran!

“Head fake, perhaps?”

There were all sorts of disinformation leaked by the Allies in advance of the Normandy invasion in 1944. Ultimately, these proved to be brilliant and arguably essential factors contributing to the extraordinary success of an operation so vast one would think that in principle, there would be no conceivable way to keep its details secret from the Nazis.

Have you seen Iran on a map? Any number of states would want to limit Iranian influence. Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Turkey, Armenia, Azerbijan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, The UAE...

I think that Iran has to be feeling kind of awestruck at the number of different places things could commence from. Planning for the Republican Guard must be a byatch these days.

My analysis.....

The USA will be ready reserves. America does not have the stake in the battle that Israel and the moderate Arabs have. Their lives are literally on the line.

The war will be fought by the air forces of Israel, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. When and if Iran actually attacks American forces we will become involved in the fighting.

Our effort will be intelligence and perhaps coordination. Obama will never attack until our forces are fired upon.

The question for me is ....who commands CENTCOM? Will he be the commander or will Petraeus run our show from Afghanistan?

Inert--I don't think Obama has the guts to use lethal force on anyone except United States citizens. What is more interesting, is whether he will attempt to cut off aid to Israel because of any military action against Iran.

“....who commands CENTCOM?”

A most important question because on the surface Gen Petraeus got demoted. If not he retains his CENTCOM duties. If not, 0 assumes leadership over CENTCOM as the all seeing, all knowing, boots on their necks organizer.
God save US!

"Israel is not going to attack Iran without also taking out Hezzbollah, Syria, and Hamas and anybody else who gets in the way."

Absolutely.

I expect tanks and artillery to move into Lebanon and Gaza...with a STRIDENT warning to Syria to lay low. If Syria, or Syrian missiles get involved, all hell will break loose. Israel will have to play for keeps.

the only question on the table is: Just how suicidal ARE the Islamists, really?

You’ll know it’s happening when you see the words SPECIAL REPORT appear on your TV screen.

I’ll believe an attack on Iran is coming when it actually happens, and not before then.

"air forces of Israel, Saudi Arabia and Qatar."

You are an optimist. The Arabs may entice Israel behind the scenes, but they will keep a low profile and then blame Israel for "unprovoked aggression."

Don't forget also that Saudis are formally in a state of war with Israel (no, please don't ask what Israel ever did to them).

Exactly.  There's been some kind of report of Israel attacking Iran at least weekly for the last 5 years.  Ain't happened yet and the longer it goes the less chance there is of it happening.

It's telling that after all the bluster, Iran backed-off challenging Israel's naval blockade of Gaza.

Ha.... I stand corrected I mis spoke. He will never allow attack, but will likely counterattack.

My thought is that the only way to save his butt is to have a war. More folks will rally to the flag than demonstrate and burn it.

He will act in his own self interest. He could care less about the country.

That has occurred to me also. We would have to be openly involved in that war, though. We would be terrifically involved if it started with an Israeli attack on the Fleet and it would be to the Kenyan’s political advantage.
