Germany has put its Air Force Tornado warplanes in intensive training for a possible attack on targets in Iran, after taking part last week in a joint drill with the Israeli Air Force and other NATO members at the Italian Decimomannu air base on Sardinia.

Iran, for its part, is gearing up for a gloves-off reprisal against its attackers...

If war breaks out against Iran, our President will establish a committee to study the problem. He would have no choice since he wouldn’t know what else to do.

AND in other news, Iran’s leader Ahmadinejad looked down the famous ‘well’ where the Islamic ‘Mahdi’ is expected to reappear per Muslim teachings, and saw the mystical figure square dancing with none other than Adolf Hitler to the ‘Horst Wessel Song’.

Holy crap! Blitzkrieg 2.0?

Nice to see Germany isn’t afraid to project some military power. We can use everyone we can get.

What a difference 70 years makes now, doesn’t it. From gassing the Jews to helping them.

I think Herman, the Germans and Israel will wind up working together between 2013 and 2016, taking care of some business over in the mideast.

Probably. I’m thinking refueling support and radar coverage as a minimum. Probably more if this report is correct (it is DEBKA after all). German military isn’t going to do a thing if the US isn’t in the lead.

Notice to all: This is a Debka report, they don’t always have their oars in the water.

All this Iran attack talk, sabre rattling, need to stomp a mudhole in ‘em, etc. is very interesting but not gonna happen.

If Iran has virtually no sanctions on its sale of goods, there is no realistic embargo. They will always be able to buy what they want, get real.

Their nuke weapon program is buried too deep for anyone, even ourselves with atomic weapons to destroy.

Israel, with exact coordinates, with Germany, and all the King’s horses and all the King’s men can’t do squat about it.

Look Israel can’t even take out Hamas or Hiz’bollah next door.

Whom is going to refuel all these attacking aircraft? Whom is going to give them overflight permission?

If we were serious about shutting down Iran, why don’t we cut all internet and phone transmission, stop all electronic banking and debit and credit cards for 24 hours?? We can do that.

So let’s bust a move and let Iran know how vulnerable they really are.

According to Debka, Saddam was in Belarus or in the freezer of the Russian Embassy in Bagdhad and 0bama was in Iran.

Word from Libya is that the Tornado is still the attack king.

By "we" do you mean the U.S.? What makes you think Obama will commit the U.S. to assist Israel?

If you are Israeli, yes, help from Germany is good but don't expect U.S. involvement, Obama won't allow that.

Good question, but he doesn’t even know how to establish a committee. He’d most likely have someone else do it.....mean while, he’ll go play golf.
