Does the IAF have air tankers for refueling their jets in transit to and from Iran?

It took the US a generation to stabilize Europe after WWII.

Leaving Iraq, especially an Iraq with a government in danger of a hostile take over by Iranian or Muslim Brotherhood hardliners, after only five years and supplying an unstable, hostile Islamic government with modern American Weapons including F-16s does not seem like a really good idea.

Seriously, it's insane.

What could possibly go right with plan?

Return to Base (RTB) mode should have relied on a redundent navigation system which would/should be Inertial Navigation that just uses gyros.
