In those first minutes, they'll be stunned. Eyes fixed in a thousand-yard stare, nerve endings numbed. They'll just stand there. Soon, you'll notice that they are holding their arms out at a 45-degree angle. Your eyes will be drawn to their hands and you'll think you mind is playing tricks. But it won't be. Their fingers will start to resemble stalactites, seeming to melt toward the ground. And it won't be long until the screaming begins. Shrieking. Moaning. Tens of thousands of victims at once. They'll be standing amid a sea of shattered concrete and glass, a wasteland punctuated by the shells of buildings, orphaned walls, stairways leading nowhere.
A real Nostradamus at work here...
great visualization, but, Israel vs Iran is a two hit fight. Israel hits Iran and Iran hits the floor.
The “assupmtions” applied in this “prediction” are significantly flawed.
Israel - Iran won’t be a “war”. It will be a quick erasure of muslims and take maybe 30 minutes from start to finish.
Horrific? Depends on who’s looking.
Very disturbing indeed. That a rant from a frequent contributor to The Nation would be posted on FR.
It is unlikely that Israel will strike civilian targets. Israel has always taken the moral high road. They would most likely attack military targets only. They would most likely hit the oil fields; which, by the way, would end the nuclear program right this moment. It would also cause Iran, with nothing to lose, to block the Striates of Hormuz with mines. They have 30,000-70,000. It would take a century to sweep/hunt them all. The world would face starvation on a massive scale. Israel is working hard behind the scenes to undermine Iran’s nuclear effort. They’ll have to wait for a new American administration to actually end it.
Published reports suggest that American intelligence agencies and Israel’s intelligence service are in agreement: Iran suspended its nuclear weapons development program in 2003.
If they buy this pant load they’ll believe anything.
Oh and 85 percent of Iran lives in the Capital?
Does Iran have missile submarines and thermonuclear weapons? Israel does. They’d be able to mount a second and third wave of attacks and thermonuclear (”H-Bombs”) are MUCH more powerful than nuclear (”A-Bombs”) such as those used at Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
We need a kinder, gentler nuclear war. Only Progressive Liberal leadership can guide us there.
Depends which side you support. Iran has the power to stop this nightmare - Israel has absolutely NO DESIRE to do anything with their nukes, and proved that big-time in 1973.
But if Iran really wants to test them, there will be a lot of pain and suffering in their country. So I have a suggestion for Iran - live and let live - Israel will not do lift a finger to harm you if you can just bring yourself to that level.
the hateful Irani Aholes will eventually provoke Isr to take the gloves off
when they do, kiss Iran goodbye
Last estimate I saw was something like 60 such weapons in the Israeli arsenal and I did not see any with the impact of fusion weaponry.
I calculated a strike, as I would have done it, years ago. 20 warheads for first strike, 20 in reserve.
Around 30 million, far as I remember.
Study is somewhat bogus
Like that one done in Reagan years (TTAPS) to predict
what would happen after nuclear war in order to justify
That scenario in that was based on nuking every major
population center in both North and South hemispheres using
type of weapons which did not exist
Israel would most likely go for certain industrail targets
to cause total collapse of Iranian economy and society
without excessive casualties
Sorry, I think it will be more like a couple hours. Iran does have many capabilities. But if Israel goes full ahead (without nukes), Israel will take the skys against Iran's aircraft. Once that happens, Iran is toast.
Remember modern Warfare 101: He who controls the skys, controls every thing.
Very old data, if so.
2000 was around 400 warheads, I think, with h-bombs in the mix. From what I know, it’s at least doubled now.
There’s also an unconfirmed claim - that Israel has learned how to make a nuclear blast directional. If they have, that’s an unique trick.
How did you come to that conclusion?
Understand...but it depends on the circumstances and exactly what was left of Israel prior. They may just be angry as hell and decide to take them off the map.
I think the point is that they have to capability to basically eliminate them as a race, if they want to.
Full out nuclear population strike at the largest population centers (there’s not really that many), with a center airburst in the megaton range and an outlying circle around the city.
And single largish hits against nuclear/military sites of significance. Again, not really all that many.
At the end of the first missile flight, it will be all over but the shouting.
