'Yellow Light Enough' For Israel To Attack Iran
YouTube ^ | March 12, 2012

Posted on 03/13/2012 11:29:00 AM PDT by Fennie

There is no doubt that Israel is ready to carry out a first strike against Iran, Shlomo Gazit, former head of Israeli intelligence, told RT. And Israel will not seek any approval from the US or even its own citizens to make such a move.

The muzzies don’t respect the Obamaloon.

Our military doesn’t respect the Obamaloon.

Working folks don’t respect the Obamaloon.

Local flies, lice, and insects don’t respect the Obamaloon.

Who the Fluke thinks that Israel respects the Obamaloon?

I say make a large whole in the nuke facilities then fill it with water to flood them or impregnate the facilities with an agent that renders them uninhabitable. The vast majority of Americans are on Israel's side regardless the impression the 0bama regime conveys.

Can someone here do a brief summary of Israel's weaponry? They do still fly F-16's right?

They have fewer than 100 F-15s, and a little over 300 F-16s, with a mix of configurations for each (plus helicopters, which probably don't matter much at that distance). They do aerial refueling and can carry external fuel tanks as well. Israel also has significant domestic drone assets and may have access to some American UAV capabilities. Their special forces have substantial capabilities in supporting air strikes or operating on their own. I hope to see a demonstration of their weaponry very soon - before we see a demonstration of Iran's nuclear capability over Israel, in Europe, or on American soil.

I don’t know the hit/miss ratios but their ‘Iron Dome’ system seems to work quite well. Seems this defense system is being put to the test nowadays. I don’t see how an attack on Iran goes without casualties in Israel, however.

I would consider, given proper intelligence, first strikes on leadership,command and control.

The other targets can come later after the command is disabled and hopefully in tatters. I suspect the military will not function if the politicos and commanders are disabled

I agree. Would be a good time for a mass internal rebellion too.

One way or another, there will be casualties in Israel. Whether it is from terrorists in Lebanon/Syria/Egypt timing the attacks they would have launched anyways and claiming they are retaliating for IAF taking out the Iranian nuclear weapons program, or from an Iranian nuclear weapon, there will be casualties. While I detest both options, I see only one of those choices as morally acceptable.

That’s one of my favorite comedy shows on TV. I always laugh my ass off at the collegiate nobodies they have on for interviews. The Alyona Show is another favorite when she gets two people to stand there with what looks to be martinis in front of them and make fools of themselves.

I’d love to be on that show. When the camera was on me I’d take a big swig of that drink and say “What kind of bs is this! It’s water with a gd olive for cripes sake! What a fake this show is!” And then walk off.

It’s amazing what people will do for a few minutes of camera time. In a more perfect world they would be taken out back and flogged for stupidity for making those without a well developed sense of humor suffer cruel and unusual punishment if they happened onto one of the appearances by accident.

Surely the Israelis have considered using an EMP strike on Tehran & Qum to either blind and/or decapitate the regime’s C&C and its ability to control the Iranian masses.

There would be Persian chaos on an apocalyptic scale, IMO.

Based on previous events, they or somebody has some forces on the ground. An all air campaign is not necessarily the plan.

“may have access to some American UAV capabilities.” They don’t need it. The Heron is not just any drone. It’s a whopper as big as a Boeing 737, capable of staying in the air for 50 hours and capable of carrying 550 lbs of cargo and reaching Iran. It is capable of flying higher than any other drone. The original plan for the aircraft was deep penetration to do things like surveillance, reconnaissance and target acquisition. But at the end of the day, it is a big airplane that can be customized to carry all types of loads including mid-air refueling gear and weapons. Google Israeli UAVs, you will be surprised. Achmed better start bending over.

The Israelis have three Dolphin-class SSG (conventional, non-ballistic missile sub) that can fire the Popeye Turbo SLCM (submarine launched cruise missile.). The Popeye is “special; weapon” capable. Israel also has the Jericho 3 ICBM with nuclear war heads. The Israels have 25 F-15I “Thunder” and 106 F-16I “Storm” jets that are specifically built to attack Iran's nuke sites and are “special weapon” capable.

If I was PM Netanyahu, I'd do an EMP strike on Iran to take down their C3I (command, control, communication, intelligence) net. On SLCM launch, hold a country-wide attack drill and put the population in NBC shelters. Once Iran is electronically dark, hit it with Jericho 3 ICBMs on all their Command nodes, real and suspected nuke sites. The war is over in hours.

At the same time tell the Palestinians, Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, and Syria's Assad that if they so much as twitch to help Iran, they will become smoking, self-lighting holes in the desert. Israel isn't doing appeasement any more; Israel is in extermination mode. Only two choices, boys: (1) peace with Israel and live; (2) war with Israel and die.

That's the max weight of the on-board electronics. Cargo load much greater.

I take that back. Unclear what part is avionics and what part is payload.

The Google site said 550 lbs of payload. That would be good for about 100 gallons of jet fuel. If you are running low on fuel, an extra 100 gallons might just get you home, and if you could squeeze fuel from the drone’s fuel system that would be even better.

The Israels have 25 F-15I “Thunder” and 106 F-16I “Storm” jets that are specifically built to attack Iran’s nuke sites and are “special weapon” capable. They also have 58 older F-15’s, and another 300 older F-16’s.

Quite right. The F-15I and F-16I have conformal fuel tanks that allow these aircraft to reach Iran and back without refueling. The older F-15s and F-16s can carry external fuel, but that compromises their war load. These might need tanker support to complete the mission. They could be used for Combat Air Patrol (CAP) or SAM suppression. The downside is that a maximum effort by the IAF could compromise the strike package and strip Israel of its airborne sword and shield.

I like the Popeye Turbo/Jericho 3 option. That way the IAF can concentrate on exterminating Palestinians, Egyptians, and Syrians.

The Israelis can take down Iran with all its goosestepping b@stards and missile carrier parades and ayatollahs with their bloodthirsty tirades.

G-d give the IDF the will to do so. We sure don’t have it thanks to the Obamanation in the WH.

BTW, thanks for your description of Israeli capabilities. Yes, I know it’s all unclassified, not saying anything.

Except I do feel I can regard the situation more calmly. That helps.

:^)

The Muslims and Nazis were joined at the hip in WW2. We defeated the Nazis and destroyed the Third Reich. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem survived and his cancer spread throughout the Middle East, largely funded by Saudi petrodollars.

I am not a Jew. I am a Christian that believes G_d will not let His chosen people be destroyed by the monstrous evil of Islam. i believe that the terror states of the ME are about to be visited by the Hammer of G_d. They will be taught a lesson that the Muslim fanatics will never forget.

In so far as our country goes, perhaps G_d does look out for fools, drunks, and the United States of America.

“The Hammer of G-d”

That’s four powerful words. May we Christians start to use them and hear them much more often.

Deus vult!

Here’s a thought: It’s an open secret that the Saudis are going to turn a blind eye to Israeli overflights if TSHTF. If the Saudis “miss” the Israelis using an “abandoned” base, or even just making a dirt strip and pre-positioning supplies in the middle of nowhere, most of those logistical problems go away, and the Saudis still have deniability.

Just a thought...

Yup. The Saudis may even provide tankers, CAP, and ECM for the strike as well as bases. Jordan and Saudi Arabia have given Israel overflight permission (rumors go), so it appears that “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.”

The facts are that the entire Persian Gulf region is terrified of Iran getting nukes. The only one with the stones to kill the Persian monster appears to be Israel — out of sheer survival. Things are going to get interesting and soon.

Interesting indeed. I was working on the assumption that the Saudis would want to be able to deny cooperating with the Israelis - if the Saudis are willing to openly cooperate (and CAP and tanker support is pretty hard to deny), then the sky’s the limit. (Pun intended.)
