The detailed report compiled by the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) in Washington last month, complete with graphs and diagrams, has been reprinted in thousands of copies in Tehran.
It is compulsory reading for its intelligence and Revolutionary Guards personnel because the Study on a Possible Israeli Strike on Iran's Nuclear Development Facilities concludes that the Jewish state has all the resources necessary for a successful strike.
When asked recently, Adm. Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint US Chiefs of Staff, agreed with this estimate. This week, president Shimon Peres and prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu both said that if diplomcy failed to halt Iran's nuclear activities, Israel would be left with no option other than the military one.

Only one way to be sure......
Is Debka credible enough for Breaking News these days? Huh...
Shhh...don’t tell anyone!
“In nineteen minutes, this area’s gonna be a cloud of vapor the size of Nebraska.”
What are they waiting for??? Go for it...
From the article:
Tehran responded with a complaint to the UN Security Council demanding that Israel be condemned for “its threats against a sovereign state.”
Pot, meet kettle.
....I say we stand off and nuke them from orbit.”
When I was in the USAF, it was widely thought that Israel had the best AF in the ME. I have no idea if that is still the case, but I would be willing to bet it does.
Anyone know for sure?
Hell, the Israeli AF could turn all of Iran and the surrounding area into a hot, smouldering, radioactive wasteland in moments.
This prospect, I believe, is the one thing the mullahs fear.
Missile Forces ??....
what are their equivalents to Trident, Topol M etc..?
Hell with Irans nuclear sites,
Just nuke all of Iran to be on the safe side.
Jericho 1 and 2.
Well, if Debka says so, . . .
probably the best in the world in terms of pilot skill/shootdowns
In the US the best and brightest become bankers/doctors/lawyers
In Israel the best and brightest become airforce pilots
Thanks for the information.
I am wondering if their equipment is equal or better than other ME countries. I would assume that only Egypt could come close.
I wish Israel the best always, and I sure hope they are prepared.
No less credible than the New York Times or Washington Post. ;-)
Israel can damage Iran, and put it a year to three behind schedule, but Israel cannot FINISH OFF Iran as a nuclear threat, unless it uses at least fission bombs.
Heh! That cartoon would be riot-worthy in some countries.
Luckily we haven’t reached that point (yet)...
