Israel demands nuclear ultimatum for Iran
The Telegraph ^ | 8/12/2012 | Mark Weiss in Jerusalem

Posted on 08/12/2012 5:14:13 PM PDT by bruinbirdman

Israel declared that international talks with Iran on its nuclear programme had failed as it demanded a deadline of "just a few weeks" be handed down to Tehran to scrap its atomic build-up.

It emerged that new intelligence shared with Israel by the West indicated that Iran had moved several steps closer to developing a nuclear warhead that could be fitted on the Shahab-3 missile.

According to an unidentified official, new intelligence obtained by Israel, the United States and other Western states shows that Iran's development of a nuclear weapon is progressing far beyond the scope reported by the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Tehran has made significant progress towards assembling a nuclear warhead for a Shahab-3 missile, which has a range of nearly 1,000 miles, putting the whole of Israel, including the Dimona nuclear reactor in the southern Negev desert, within the Islamic republic's range. Danny Ayalon, Israel's deputy foreign minister, called on the Western powers to declare that the negotiations with Iran, conducted by the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany, had failed.

He called for Iran to be presented with an ultimatum of a "few weeks" to cease its nuclear programme.

Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister, issued a public warning that Tehran must not be allowed to develop a nuclear bomb. "Every threat against the home front is dwarfed by one threat. Iran cannot be allowed to have a nuclear weapon," he told ministers at the start of the weekly cabinet

Preemptive strike against the Mullahs.Find out where they are meeting next and nuke the place. Say it was an accident caused by Iran.

Guarantee Gaza, Egypt and Syria go quiet after that.

If Netanyahu believes that Obama will do anything prior to the election, unless he believes it will help him win, he is sadly mistaken.

JULY 30 FROM FOX:

Mitt Romney on Sunday gave his unequivocal support to Israel and its effort to thwart Iran from achieving nuclear weapons capability, saying the United States has “a solemn duty and a moral imperative” to help in that effort.

The GOP presidential candidate made his comments in a much-anticipated speech in Jerusalem.

“Make no mistake, the ayatollahs in Iran are testing our moral defenses,” Romney said. “They want to know who will object and who will look the other way. We will not look away nor will our country ever look away from our passion and commitment to Israel. … We recognize Israel’s right to defend itself.”

I guess some people are talking out of their *ss when they say there is no difference between Obama and Romney. The Kenyan Marxist has no problem with a nuclear Iran.

Israel is ready and must believe can take out Iran's nuclear threat for next few years. I believe Obama has told them he won't stand in the way. It will be in October and it won't be that much of a surprise.

There are two ways to take out Iran that Israel could employ to end this in minutes: (1) The Jericho 3 ICBM with MIRV warhead nukes, (2) the Popeye Turbo SLCM with a 200 kg nuke warhead. Let the Magic Mushrooms bloom over Iran.

No pun intended, but this ain’t rocket science. Amadenajab has repeated his threat to destroy Israel on a frequent basis. If I were Israel, I’d take him at his word.

Iran had a missile that would reach London a long time ago (2004 or thereabouts). The UK has been trying to restrict discussion to the Iran-vs-Israel statement all along, like the boy whispering to the schoolyard bully about another boy.

“Israel declared that international talks with Iran on its nuclear programme had failed as it demanded a deadline of “just a few weeks” be handed down to Tehran to scrap its atomic build-up.”

Pro forma, before the attack.

Of course, the Israelis do not expect Iran to back down.

This is to let the historical record show that they demanded a peaceful resolution before taking military action.

“................new intelligence obtained by Israel, the United States and other Western states shows that Iran’s development of a nuclear weapon is progressing far beyond the scope reported by the International Atomic Energy Agency.”

So for what reason does anybody put any faith whatsoever in what the IAEA has to say? Where is any credibility with anything that is U.N.?

Why the “H” are we still paying the majority for membership in the U.N.? Why are we not only paying the majority for the U.N., but we are also paying the majority for all the failed “Peace operations” of the U.N., why?

For all our efforts we the people are thanked by the U.N. who sneaks into our country in the form of the ICLEI, and works with the enemies within to destroy our Constitution, and destroy this Nation.

The U.N. is the major tool of the Leftist’s that are currently in control of this Nation’s destiny, and we sit here on our asses letting them take away everything we, our father’s, and forefather’s fought for.

Israel’s right to survive is a no-brainer, but with the U.N. in the way we have games to play before we can simply do what is the right thing to do, and that is make Iran’s right to survive null, and void as they threaten NOT only Israel’s right to survive, but our own with their declaration of war on the West thirty, or so years ago, and their repeated threats from then to current times.

Eff the U.N., the IAEA, and their NWO project. Shut the b-stards down, and take the money to build up our military and close our borders NOW.

End rant.

Israel is all over the internet this weekend regarding Tehran and the bomb.

Iran has stated their intentions so many times and for a number of years now. I take them at their word that at the minute they can launch a device, it will be flying. The hate is boiling over, we could wake up and find the middle east smoldering, and hundreds of thousands wounded or dead.

Currencys will collapse, markets will tumble, oil & food will skyrocket and if thats the end of it, that will be the good news. Good time to pray everyone.

It seems a little funny though that it’s taken all this time, practically to the heels of the US election for Israel to figure out that Iran’s almost ready with their weapon.

It would be a mistake to let this bastard soetoro dictate the pace of anything on the probable odds that he would work to Israel’s detriment.

Sorry to seem so cynical. But this whole timing issue frankly stinks with an islamist in the White House vying for a second term.

May we really be suffering some form of cosmically induced insanity?

It sounds like Bibi is all out of bubble gum. Maybe it’s past time to let some of those 800+ atomic birds fly. Anyone know if Israel has MIRVed any of their missiles or built any thermonuclear devices?

This is how much more powerful and advanced that we are compared to Iran, Pakistan and the rest of the Caliphate: ONE US Navy ballistic missile carrying submarine launching her 24 missiles (each missile has EIGHT small “H-Bomb” warheads that can go to different targets, 8 X 24 = 192) could obliterate EVERY medium-sized to major city in the Islamic world. Yes, you heard me right: Every one. And we have EIGHTEEN Ohio-class submarines, not to mention land-based intercontinental missiles, cruise missiles, medium-range missiles, tactical rockets, strategic bombers and most other US military & naval aircraft (except helicopters) can carry nuclear bombs or other devices. Every weapon I’m talking about makes Hiroshima and Nagasaki look like a church picnic.

“I take them at their word that at the minute they can launch a device, it will be flying.”

Which will be next week. That is when Iran will have its first working nuke, mounted on a missile, waiting for the command to launch. The others will be ready sometime early next year.

Egyptian armies will proceed from the South, Hezbollah rain thousands of missiles from the North, and Syria rain chem/bio loaded missiles from the West.

The politician have procrastinated just long enough to create the perfect environment for the coming war.

Correction: “May we really be suffering some form of self-inflicted induced insanity?”

The cosmos has nothing to do with it. This is the price of hubris.

Tehran has made significant progress towards assembling a nuclear warhead for a Shahab-3 missile....

So, what's your point? We're dealing with an insane death cult leadership that believes the world must be washed in blood to bring back their well-dwelling savior.

They don't care what we have.

Besides, we have a CiC who is doing everything he can to eliminate our nuclear weapons. What makes you think he's got the political will to use them even if the US or Israel is nuked first?

Netanyahu knows who he is dealing with and when Barakeh Hussein says: “I have Israel’s back”, the majority of Jews who are awake, know he is a liar. BB knows that Obama would love to see Israel brought to her knees so that he can then finally implemement his (and the State Dept.’s) Muslim vision for the Middle East, then the world - Dar Al Islam!!

In a further sign that Israel is stepping up preparation for a possible showdown with Iran, the army's home front command sent out thousands of text messages in a test run of a programme to alert people when rocket attacks are launched on specific areas.

Make that at least three (3)-—It would take a lot less horsepower to knock out either Iran’s electric generation capacity and/or it’s water supply to the nuke facilities. I’m not sure how their water system works but they are all vulnerable. But you can’t enrich much of anything, including flour, without large quantities of electricity and water. They couldn’t possibly have enough backup diesel generators to run the nuke plants if the turbo generators go down and out. I like this particular idea since knocking out the power makes the rest of the folks aware there’s a problem with their leadership. It would take them a long time to replace large turbines and in the meantime all the stuff they’ve already enriched would be turning to krap. And this method would avoid the issue of blowing radioactive junk into the airstream which would eventually get to us——remember the Big Fukushima. Some of that stuff made it to my place inside the Cascades on the West Coast.-——almost forgot-—conventional SLCM’s could handle that nicely without risking pilots, etc.
