Posted on 11/09/2011 7:00:45 PM PST by Fennie
Israel will be launching a military strike as early as December in a bid to stop Iran's nuclear program, the British Daily Mail reported, based on unnamed government sources.
The sources said that Israel will strike Iran's nuclear sites "sooner rather than later" and rely on logistical American support.

Dear GAWD! Not while Obama is in orifice!!!!!!
“.. and rely on American logistical support.”
What will Obama tell the Muslim Brotherhood when they complain about the attack on a fellow Muslim country, “The Jooz made me do it?”
Could be misinformation to keep the Iranians off balance.
Who told them that? Reverend Camping? These predictions are getting kind of tiresome.
That's how I know the source is suffering from cranial-rectal-proximity syndrome. No way Barry is going to allow the U.S. to help.
I'm starting to think it might actually happen and the US is scrambling to dust off plans.
I believe Israel has already made the requisite notifications.
The Brit media has been busy for a few years with trying to keep the Iran focus on Israel.
Is it just gonna be an attack on the nuclear facilities like they with Iraq when they tried to get nukes or is it gonna be a full frontal airstrike on Iran’s major cities ? Has there been anything written that suggests what kind of attack it would be ? None of this is inconistent, one day you hear of planned strikes and the next you hear that Israel is no longer worried over Iran’s ability to get nuclear warheads. And there has been warnings of Israel looking to strike Iran for several years now; I think last summer or the summer before there was this same issue over whether Israel was gonna strike iran before they got the nuclear technology. At this point it’s like a parent repeatedly counting to 3 in an attempt to warn the child of a punishment, than doing nothing when he/she reaches 3 each time.
I wouldn’t be too surprised. They have to move on Iran at some point, and they may not have time to wait for a new US President. In conversation just last week I said the same thing.
How many years have we been hearing that a strike, either by us or Israel, is right around the corner? Grain. Salt. Wake me when it happens.
The Lord moves in mysterious ways.
The fact that they keep announcing intentions to striek means it is designed to publicly stand their ground and try to convince the Iranian regime that if they try to use nukes on them they will fight back with everything they have. Wars generall do not get started with this kind of announcement. There’s a saying that goes “Revolutions announced in advance” do not happen-the same is generally true for wars. And I know some posters think Israel might not wait for a new president but can they ? Israel just cannot take on a nation the size of Iran head on unless they can count on unconditional US support of war breaks out. And right now they just cant.
True but Obama has announced the removal of all US forces from Iraq by the end of the year I believe. Once that happens the balance of power in the region changes. Israel may feel they have to act before then or stand alone. I think if they are leaking a December date they would strike sooner than then.
I dont believe this story. If Israel has something planned we wont be hearing about it til AFTER it happens. Israel would never be revealing this kind of information to anyone
True, but that if the balance of power changes in Iraq then we would likely have troops send back in to keep the balance what it was before we left. We have had troops in Germany and South Korea for decades to keep the balance of power where we wanted it, I dont think there would be issues with having troops in Iraq for 10 years or more to keep the balance of power shifted towards us. Even Obama at this point understands conceptually as to why we need to keep these balances stable.
