Skip to comments.Israeli TV report shows air force gearing-up for Iran attack, says moment of truth is near
Posted on 04/15/2012 6:59:09 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
A major Israel TV station on Sunday night broadcast a detailed report on how Israel will go about attacking Irans nuclear facilities in the event that diplomacy and sanctions fail and Israel decides to carry out a military strike.
The report, screened on the main evening news of Channel 10, was remarkable both in terms of the access granted to the reporter, who said he had spent weeks with the pilots and other personnel he interviewed, and in the fact that his assessments on a strike were cleared by the military censor.
No order to strike is likely to be given before the P5+1 talks with Iran resume in May, the reporter, Alon Ben-David, said. But the coming summer will not only be hot but tense.
In the event that negotiations fail and the order is given for Israel to carry out an attack on Iranian nuclear facilities, dozens if not more planes will take part in the mission: attack and escort jets, tankers for mid-air refueling, electronic warfare planes and rescue helicopters, the report said.
Ben-David said the Israel Air Force does not have the capacity to destroy the entire Iranian program. There will be no replication of the decisive strikes on Iraqs Osirak reactor in 1981 or on Syria in 2007, he said. The result wont be definitive. But, a pilot quoted in the report said, the IAF will have to ensure that it emerges with the necessary result, with a short and professional assault.

I’m gonna load my weapons too. Hezbellah will attack here if Israel attacks Iran.that’s what I believe
Do it on the aniversary of Entebee, that way Obama can’t pretend to celebrate the 4th.
How many times does Israel cry wolf? Go get’em boys and let us know how it comes out. Sorry we can’t go along. We are broke and Iran could not ever attack this country with a nuke. Did you know why? Russia had 20,000 nukes pointed at the USA and never fired one because they knew they would all die. Korea has Nukes and missiles and so what? They are crazier than the Shiites in Tehran. If you come in my house I am going to kill you real bad. Israel is not our house!! So good luck (if you are not bluffing again like I think) and may the better military win!!.
Something like that is all pressure and part of diplomacy and gaming. If Israel and/or the US launch/es a raid on Iran there will be no forewarning. One day perhaps there will be some flowers in the air as Israel announces it is eagerly studying some new Arab initiative for peace and the next morning there will be a lot of large holes in the ground in Iran and Washington and/or Moscow will be expressing shock and condemnation. China will say “hmmm-m-m-”
Thanks Free ThinkerNY.
It’s called a “feint”.
Iran will begin to ignore them.
Best thing Israel could do is have it published on Debka.
Because nobody would believe it (and not without past reason).
You think a middle eastern suicide bomber might detonate in your cornfield?
One way, or another, I think Bibi will figure out a way to get rid of Obama in November. He knows that if Zero gets another term you can pretty much kiss Israel goodbye. I hope he has the wisdom and strength to get it done! He may be our best hope!
Pump jacks everywhere, no corn fields. Two air force bases.
There are many terrorist training centers here, something has to give
I agree with you. My guns are already loaded.
they won’t be attacking elvis country.
So much for the element of surprise.

True, but the Russian weren't trying to lure the 12 Imam out that well in Oom. Islamic Shiite zealots are much less predictable than Russian communist technocrats. Put another way, they can be counted on to do the crazy thing.
Maybe that’s the idea. There’s been so much talk about this eventually the Iranians will always think it’s a bluff, until it happens.
While I was observing, then, a male goat was coming from the west over the surface of the whole earth without touching the ground; and the goat had a conspicuous horn between his eyes. He came up to the ram that had the two horns, which I had seen standing in front of the canal, and rushed at him in his mighty wrath. I saw him come beside the ram, and he was enraged at him; and he struck the ram and shattered his two horns, and the ram had no strength to withstand him. So he hurled him to the ground and trampled on him, and there was none to rescue the ram from his power.
Daniel 8:5-7 700BC
The only power on earth to this very day able to cross the earth without touching the ground and smacking Persia and trampling it to the ground is us.
Terrible thing, though. Daniel goes on to say:
“Then the male goat magnified himself exceedingly. But as soon as he was mighty, the large horn was broken; and in its place there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven.”
The press keeps releasing these leaks.... Are they trying to derail Israel’s capacity to carry out a strike??
like when syria invaded israel, after pretending all the time. So at least one country learns from its history, except when it comes to their religion.
This isn’t a leak. It was cleared with the IAF and they were given access. They wanted this out there. Why, I couldn’t say, only maybe to feed them misinformation.
Maybe we should all write him and ask him for their help.
Yep, I imagine so.
Daniel 8:8. This he-goat was Alexander the Great. Who in 323 B.C. at about thirty-three years of age, and at the height of his power, died. His empire was divided to these four Generals, of which Cassander had Macedonia, Seleucus had Syria, Antigonus had Asia the less, and Ptolemeus had Egypt.
Agreed, it will be Iran waking its sleepers all across the country,
As Slim Pickins said on Dr. Strangelove...Yeeeee Hawwww
I have a piece of land they could blow themselves up in, ,fertilizer is not cheap and the buzzards look a little skinny..
I guess the Israelis didn’t get the “wait until October” memo from Hillary or Obama.
The article says this information was cleared by Israeli censors.
Therefore, in some information warfare manner, they want the enemy to know this. Is it because it is what they’ll do, because it isn’t what they’ll do, or is there some other reason they want this particular info to be known?
But, you can bet they want this known, and they want the enemy to react or not react. It’s a game within a game within a game....
If they want to attack, we should let them. But I don’t want to start another war we won’t be allowed to win.
Obviously, Israel wants Iran looking at the sky. My conclusion: Mitch Rabb is going in on the ground with John Clark, Chuck Norris, and Remo Williams. The terrorists and nuclear scientists won't know what hit them.
With the Israelis it's best to expect the unexpected.
But...but...but soetoro’s reelection!...
We’ll know when the Israeli strike on Iran happens when we see the following two words on our television screens:
Good call .. dollars to doughnuts.
I believe the ram to have been Alexander the Great when he defeated the Persians. Its not clear what the offshoot horns are supposed to represent. There’s theories that and I tend to believe them, that while Satan doesn’t know the day of the Messiahs return, he has had throughout the ages people ready to step up and play out the end-times. We’re definitely ripe for the end-times now but we can never truly know till it happens.
Two main reasons:
1) By crying wolf, the Israelis force the Iranians to react every time, tiring them out, forcing them to expend resources and fuel for their air-defense patrols, and making it more likely that Iranian forces will treat the real thing as another false alarm when it happens.
2) They may not be able to stop the leaking of the real thing, but by leaking many false alarms, it makes it harder for the Iranians to know a real leak from a faked leak when the time comes.
“How many times does Israel cry wolf? Go getem boys and let us know how it comes out. Sorry we cant go along. We are broke and Iran could not ever attack this country with a nuke. Did you know why?

Newbie, Free Republic supports Israel. You said, “Israel is not our house!! ...and may the better military win!!” It’s okay with you if they all get murdered by Iran? Best you post that on another website, not here.
Prayers up for Israel in dealing with that little madman. 13:20
The angel saying that the prophecy is of the last days, and the male goat coming from the west over the surface of the whole earth without touching the ground has always intrigued me. Will we see the breakup of the US into four parts and out of one of these will come the world dictator? Only G_d knows.
Shiites now have virtual control of Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria,and the Gaza strip. They believe that they are the Gog and Magog of the Bible, and that they win, when the Mahdi returns to set up the caliph. They are dedicated to dying for allah. They are dedicated to bringing about Armageddon, they are dedicated to the eradication of Israel.
Move one step closer and I will have a bar-b-que...I will put a slab of bacon on this Koran and then set it on fire!
Well I think Israel has been well worth support over te last 40 years. The rumor is we have given them a trillion dollars of aggregate aid and 200 nuclear devices. But the money is all gone. It was squandered on wall street after the government demanded we make bad loans to people who couldn’t pay for “affordable housing” We all know that . Things have changed.Any way no offense intended. We just can’t afford world policeman anymore.
Whatever is done and/or whenever it is done, it will be swift, complete, and a total surprise to the world.
We may even see an attack by Iran, while they are feigning interest in talks.
“They believe that they are the Gog and Magog of the Bible, and that they win, when the Mahdi returns to set up the caliph. They are dedicated to dying for allah. They are dedicated to bringing about Armageddon, they are dedicated to the eradication of Israel.”
I agree with you. I would add Russia and China to that group - they join these bad guys for reasons other than the Mahdi. We will eventually get to Armageddon.
