Posted on 06/20/2008 3:14:56 AM PDT by Fennie
U.S. officials say Israel carried out a large military exercise this month that appeared to be a rehearsal for a potential bombing attack on Iran's nuclear facilities, The New York Times reported on Friday.
Citing unidentified American officials, the newspaper said more than 100 Israeli F-16 and F-15 fighters took part in the maneuvers over the eastern Mediterranean and Greece in the first week of June.
It said the exercise appeared to be an effort to focus on long-range strikes and illustrates the seriousness with which Israel views Iran's nuclear program. The newspaper said Israeli officials would not discuss the exercise...

They're not... don't take seriously ANYTHING the DBM polls say in June, July or August. Obama's biggest vote-killer isn't that he spent some formative years in a Madrasa Islamia... it's that he was a follower of black-liberation theology for 20 years and seems to be a Marxist to boot.
America is open to a black president... but not a duplicitous one.
No, Christians are God's chosen people.
Jews are further down the list.
It would be a one way trip for the Israeli pilots. If the US allows them to overfly Iraq, it will be viewed as the US attacking Iran. Which we do not have the men, material, or money to do.
We can't even finish up the job in Iraq and Afghanistan. Iran is an order of magnitude greater. Couple that with Russia getting very nervous about NATO on all over her western and now southern borders, and it could set up a world war.
Those "chosen people" need to get the Word.
I’m really confused by this revelation that Israel has been doing a drill to hit Iran.
The biggest advantage you have against your enemy is SURPRISE! Why on earth would Israel want Iran to know it’s coming to get their little project and make it a cement parking lot ..??
And .. if Israel is really planing this .. are they using the USA to give out the information? .. because Israel may have told us they were going to hit Iraq’s nukes (years ago), but we never made it public.
This just seems strange to me that this exercise has been made public.
Yep, you did, lol.
Backtracking my original post you just replied to!
Don't know how "heroic" it might have been. But it was a message. The same message that SAC used to send with it's non-stop around the world flights. Only both more and less so. By demonstating that they had the capabilty to conduct a *conventionaL* strike at the same distance as Iran is from them, they've made such an attack much more credible. Without the ability to condict a conventional strick that from from their own airfields, the Israelis woudl be stuck with the Samson option. Nukes, on missiles. The lack of necessity for using nukes, makes any threats more credible.
Hopefully, like with SAC, the message will be received and their will be no war, but with Amanutjob, it's hard to say if any deterence, short of introducing him to his 72 virgins and the 13th Iman would do the job.
“The New York Times reported on Friday.” Think about what the old gray whore wants to happen and how she is always working to prevent Israel from doing what it must which goes against the socialist/commie agenda of the New York Slimes.
“The newspaper said Israeli officials would not discuss the exercise...”
If that happens, the pink pantie and rainbow pantie wearing liberals would have their silk laced panties all tied up in tight bunches.
The left wingers in control of Congress and the Obamination would be outraged. However, their outrage would have no impact on what was done.
These actions by Israel would insure overall safety for its citizens for decades. The proxie/armies/fronts for Iran like Hamas would have no funding, and their scumbags would be hunted and putdown by the IDF and Mossad like rabid dogs.
Iran and Syria in the areas of former military bases and nuclear sites would glow and be off limites for several decades.
Israel will not commit suicide by standing by and doing nothing if the Obamanation wins in November.
Loose lips sink ships....
When Israel attacks Iran, gas will obviously surge a dollar or two almost immediately.
Is that what it will take to start drilling and building refineries?
Boy, sure does seem to be a lot of spoil in that picture,
the amount of earth and rock indicates a lot of subterranian galleries.
