Skip to comments.Israeli TV report shows air force gearing-up for Iran attack, says moment of truth is near

A major Israel TV station on Sunday night broadcast a detailed report on how Israel will go about attacking Irans nuclear facilities in the event that diplomacy and sanctions fail and Israel decides to carry out a military strike.
The report, screened on the main evening news of Channel 10, was remarkable both in terms of the access granted to the reporter, who said he had spent weeks with the pilots and other personnel he interviewed, and in the fact that his assessments on a strike were cleared by the military censor.
No order to strike is likely to be given before the P5+1 talks with Iran resume in May, the reporter, Alon Ben-David, said. But the coming summer will not only be hot but tense.
In the event that negotiations fail and the order is given for Israel to carry out an attack on Iranian nuclear facilities, dozens if not more planes will take part in the mission: attack and escort jets, tankers for mid-air refueling, electronic warfare planes and rescue helicopters, the report said.
Ben-David said the Israel Air Force does not have the capacity to destroy the entire Iranian program. There will be no replication of the decisive strikes on Iraqs Osirak reactor in 1981 or on Syria in 2007, he said. The result wont be definitive. But, a pilot quoted in the report said, the IAF will have to ensure that it emerges with the necessary result, with a short and professional assault.

I’m gonna load my weapons too. Hezbellah will attack here if Israel attacks Iran.that’s what I believe
Do it on the aniversary of Entebee, that way Obama can’t pretend to celebrate the 4th.
How many times does Israel cry wolf? Go get’em boys and let us know how it comes out. Sorry we can’t go along. We are broke and Iran could not ever attack this country with a nuke. Did you know why? Russia had 20,000 nukes pointed at the USA and never fired one because they knew they would all die. Korea has Nukes and missiles and so what? They are crazier than the Shiites in Tehran. If you come in my house I am going to kill you real bad. Israel is not our house!! So good luck (if you are not bluffing again like I think) and may the better military win!!.
Something like that is all pressure and part of diplomacy and gaming. If Israel and/or the US launch/es a raid on Iran there will be no forewarning. One day perhaps there will be some flowers in the air as Israel announces it is eagerly studying some new Arab initiative for peace and the next morning there will be a lot of large holes in the ground in Iran and Washington and/or Moscow will be expressing shock and condemnation. China will say “hmmm-m-m-”
Thanks Free ThinkerNY.
You think a middle eastern suicide bomber might detonate in your cornfield?
One way, or another, I think Bibi will figure out a way to get rid of Obama in November. He knows that if Zero gets another term you can pretty much kiss Israel goodbye. I hope he has the wisdom and strength to get it done! He may be our best hope!
Pump jacks everywhere, no corn fields. Two air force bases.
There are many terrorist training centers here, something has to give
I agree with you. My guns are already loaded.
they won’t be attacking elvis country.
So much for the element of surprise.

True, but the Russian weren't trying to lure the 12 Imam out that well in Oom. Islamic Shiite zealots are much less predictable than Russian communist technocrats. Put another way, they can be counted on to do the crazy thing.
Maybe that’s the idea. There’s been so much talk about this eventually the Iranians will always think it’s a bluff, until it happens.
While I was observing, then, a male goat was coming from the west over the surface of the whole earth without touching the ground; and the goat had a conspicuous horn between his eyes. He came up to the ram that had the two horns, which I had seen standing in front of the canal, and rushed at him in his mighty wrath. I saw him come beside the ram, and he was enraged at him; and he struck the ram and shattered his two horns, and the ram had no strength to withstand him. So he hurled him to the ground and trampled on him, and there was none to rescue the ram from his power.
Daniel 8:5-7 700BC
The only power on earth to this very day able to cross the earth without touching the ground and smacking Persia and trampling it to the ground is us.
Terrible thing, though. Daniel goes on to say:
“Then the male goat magnified himself exceedingly. But as soon as he was mighty, the large horn was broken; and in its place there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven.”
The press keeps releasing these leaks.... Are they trying to derail Israel’s capacity to carry out a strike??
