Israel may launch strike on Iran as soon as next month to prevent development of nukes
Daily Mail ^ | 11/11/2011 | Tim Shipman

Israel will launch military action to prevent Iran developing a nuclear weapon as soon as Christmas, intelligence chiefs have warned.

A report by a UN watchdog into Iran’s nuclear ambitions ‘completely discredits’ the Islamic nation’s protestations of innocence, according to Foreign Secretary William Hague.

The International Atomic Energy Agency found that Iran is developing a nuclear test facility, nuclear detonators and computer modelling for a nuclear warhead that would fit on an existing missile.

Sources say the understanding at the top of the British Government is that Israel will attempt to strike against the nuclear sites ‘sooner rather than later’ – with logistical support from the U.S.

A senior Foreign Office figure has revealed that ministers have been told to expect Israeli military action, adding: ‘We’re expecting something as early as Christmas, or very early in the new year.’

Officials believe President Barack Obama would have to support the Israelis or risk losing vital Jewish-American support in the next presidential election.

In recent weeks, Ministry of Defence sources confirmed that contingency plans have been drawn up in the event that the UK decided to support military action.

But the source ruled out direct British support, adding: ‘Of course we are not in favour of Iran developing a bomb – but do we think they’d use it: no.

‘The bigger concern is it will be impossible to stop Saudi Arabia and Turkey from developing their own weapons.’

Mr Hague said Britain would push for more sanctions against Tehran when the IAEA committee meets later this month.

Israel has to do what it has to do. I am disgusted that the POTUS is such an @ss to not stand beside Israel. Well, even if he doesn't most of America will. It is our necks too if Iran gets the nuke and moreover, God wants us to stand with Israel and His will is mine - but that's just me.

If so, keep your cars fuel up to full, and get some spare cans of gasoline on hand. It won’t be pretty for a while.

WHY would anyone think that a RADICAL MUSLIM would do anything except attack Israel?

Obama helped the Muslim Brotherhood take control of Egypt

Obama even used the US Military to help RADICAL MUSLIMS take over Libya

Obama demanded Israel withdraw to pre-1967 borders as any radical Muslim would. Do a little research and you'll see Obama wants Egypt to have US tanks. What for? To invade and destroy Israel.

Right before your eyes the first Muslim President is doing everything to set up Radical Muslims to implement Sharia law world wide and you don't even recognize what Obama is doing. Is it because the MSM told you Obama is not a Muslim, is that why you don't recognize the obvious?

“Officials believe President Barack Obama would have to support the Israelis or risk losing vital Jewish-American support in the next presidential election.”

Anyone counting on Obama to do the intelligent (let alone the right) thing is guilty of grossly misplaced faith.

“In recent weeks, Ministry of Defence sources confirmed that contingency plans have been drawn up in the event that the UK decided to support military action. But the source ruled out direct British support, adding: ‘Of course we are not in favour of Iran developing a bomb – but do we think they’d use it: no.”

Then they’re idiots or cowards - or, more probably, both.

Coming sooner than I posted & predicted a couple of days ago.

After hearing the ‘open mic’ comments by Barry the Imposter, Bibi might want to shove this down Barry’s throat.

Israel has the right to take care of threats to their country. Iran is just exactly that.

This of course, should be our job; but Obama will leave it to the smallest country; and the one most in jeopardy. All who are Reason-capable; want Iran deconstructed. The only person who is willing to try and ‘have his cake; and eat it too’ is Obama, INC. The world has only gotten uglier and more dangerous, since the primacy of the Left per American values and Government policy.

See, that is the difference between me an you. I don’t think the it serves the United States to start a war for Israel. I certainly don’t think any American should die for Israel. Its easy for people like you to say we should bomb, this or that country when you face no physical danger. Its always people who have never fought that are most keen to be at war.

People like me have fathers who fought in WWII and husbands who served in the Navy during the war. I am very aware of the costs. I stand on what God said in the bible about Israel - I will bless those who bless you and I will curse those who curse you. We can go back and forth but I don’t think our positions will change from verbal exchange. So, this is pretty much the last of what I have to say.
