Israel Deploys 3 Nuclear-Armed Subs Off Iran Coast; Iran Warns Of Forceful Response To "Evil Acts"
Zero Hedge ^ | 5-31-2014 | Tyler Durden

Posted on 06/28/2014 9:39:28 AM PDT by Renfield

With tear-gas flying in the streets of Turkey, Ukraine's civil-war raging in the south and east, US drones based in Japan to oversee the South China Sea, and Europe's extremist parties gaining significant traction, today we get one more piece of considerably worrisome geopolitical news that global stock markets must ignore. The Sunday Times reports that Israel is to deploy three submarines equipped with nuclear cruise missiles in the Persian Gulf that are meant to act as a deterrent, gather intelligence and potentially to land Mossad agents. Iran is not happy, warning that "anyone who wishes to do an evil act in the Persian Gulf will receive a forceful response from us."...

Joseph Farrell comments:

Sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand geopolitical words, because if, say, the USA, France, or Great Britain had sold Israel any of their ballistic missile submarines, there would have been a veritable whirlwind of international outcry. But when Germany does it, nary a peep is heard, for obvious historical reasons. But few seem to be asking the pertinent question here: as Israel ratchets up the tensions with Iran, which cannot nuke anybody, what is Germany doing with u-boats with a capability to launch nuclear cruise missiles? Technically, of course, the German u-boats are not nuclear submarine, and technically, of course, they are not boomers or ICBM launching u-boats. And cruise missiles are not, technically, strategic offensive weapons. And technically, Germany doesn’t even have cruise missiles, even though it is a German firm that is involved in building France’s latest submarine-launched nuclear ICBM. And why is Germany, a signatory to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, selling such deadly weapons to a regional power with its own dangerous political establishment?

Sorry for all the questions folks… just thinking out loud.

Sure would be a shame if those Joooz were able to defend themselves!

Technically Israel will neither confirm nor deny they possess nuclear weapons....

Well, they aren’t “nuclear subs” ... they are subs that are armed with nuclear weapons.

And, it wasn’t Germany who armed them or made them armed. It was Israel who did the rest of the work (with the nuclear weapons) after Germany made the subs.

That doesn’t change the fact that they do have them. This “neither confirm or deny” was designed to give political cover to other nations who support Israel and actually helped them with their nuclear weapons. It’s merely a diplomatic maneuver on their part, nothing else. Everyone already knows without the least bit of doubt that they have nuclear weapons.

That statement of yours was exactly what Israel does, and mine was why they do it. No sarcasm that I can see ... :-) ...

And I’m not even sure those submarines are classified as ‘ballistic missile submarines’ anyway.

The post I was responding used the word “ technically” about 5 times.

There was an Iranian girl who sat right behind me in my differential equations class, back in 1978, who was just stunning. I still remember her vividly.

The new political class folks on all sides have very much publicized their desires for Iran, Syria and other fascist/commie nations to build nukes for over a decade. That’s okay, because the many nations that can afford to better participate in that kind of fun are doing so more quickly.

Have fun. Enjoy the party.

Someone should tell Joseph Farrell that it’s a Masonic and Rotary Club plot against the Vatican and the mullahs.

"Israel needs more Jews and more nuclear weapons."

That's a good idea. May there be many more by way of education and invitation in the near future.

Israel will be quite selective. Many Israelis are of Iranian descent.
