Israel Ready to Strike Iranian Nuclear Sites
    #2003512 - 10/12/03 10:33 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Report: IDF planning to attack nuclear sites in Iran
By Nathan Guttman, Haaretz Correspondent, Haaretz Service and Reuters

Israel is prepared to launch an attack on Iran's
nuclear sites in order to prevent them from being
operational, the German weekly magazine Der
Spiegel reported Saturday.


The Los Angeles Times meanwhile
reported on Saturday that
Israel has the capability to
fire nuclear warheads from
submarines.

Basing its disclosure on U.S.
government officials and
Israeli sources, the report
claimed that Israeli submarines

are armed with U.S.-made Harpoon cruise
missiles. Israel has modified nuclear warheads
to fit these Harpoon missiles, and the missiles
have been modified so that they can hit land
targets, the report added.

Labor MK Ephraim Sneh told Army Radio in
response that the reports on Israeli allegedly
growing nuclear capability are harmful to
Israel and distract attention from Iran's
efforts to become a nuclear power. Most
importantly, he added, they are untrue.

The Der Spiegel report said that Israel is
prepared to launch an attack in Iran against
facilities used in that country's nuclear
weapons development program. According to this
report, Israeli officials fear Iran's nuclear
program has reached an advanced stage, and a
special Mossad unit has been ordered to
formulate an attack plan against the nuclear
weapons program sites in Iran.

According to the report, the Mossad believes
that Iran is already able to manufacture
weapons-grade uranium, and ordered a special
unit two months ago to prepare a comprehensive
and detailed plan for the attack.

The magazine quoted an Israeli fighter pilot as
saying that the mission was complicated but
technically feasible.

According to the report, Israel has information
on six nuclear sites in Iran, three of them
previously unknown to the rest of the world,
and plans to have F16 fighter planes attack the
sites simultaneously.

Completing the nuclear program
The deployment of the modified Harpoon cruise
missiles, the LA Times said, completes Israel's
nuclear program. Israel has the capability of
launching nuclear missiles from the land, air
and sea, the report claimed.

Sea-based nuclear missile capability is widely
considered an essential strategic asset that
greatly enhances a country's deterrent
strength. A country with nuclear missiles at
sea can threaten an enemy with a "second
strike" - that is, even if a surprise attack
manages to wipe out its surface and air missile
systems, the country can rely on its submarine
missiles to retaliate.

Israeli sources said Saturday that U.S.
officials have never raised questions about a
possibility of Israel converting American-made
missiles for nuclear use. User instructions
that have accompanied the supply of missiles
such as the Harpoon have not included
restrictions banning any such conversion, say
the Israeli sources.

Maintaining a policy of nuclear ambiguity,
Israel has never formally acknowledged
possession of nuclear weapons. Experts in the
West believe Israel's arsenal contains between
100 and 200 advanced nuclear bombs. Israel's
delivery systems, these authorities contend,
feature F-15 and F-16 planes, "Jericho" surface
missiles, and the submarine-based Harpoon
missiles.

Western researchers have estimated that Israel
has 120 Harpoon cruise missiles capable of
submarine launch.

The Los Angeles Times report alluded to two U.S.
officials as primary sources of information
about Israel's Harpoon cruise missiles. These
sources asked to remain anonymous; they
explained that they leaked information as a
caution to Israel's enemies, particularly Iran.


The U.S. State Department and Pentagon declined
Saturday to comment on the report.

Some U.S. public figures claimed Saturday that
Israeli nuclear capability complicates
international efforts to stop Iran's nuclear
weapons procurement efforts. A senior U.S.
official who has been active in attempts to
stop nuclear weapons proliferation said
Israel's nuclear capabilities are a "magnet"
spurring Arab countries that aspire to develop
nuclear weapons of their own.

I thought that maybe, JUST MAYBE, we could get over the constant threat of nuclear war after the Cold War ended.

Another 5 years and we'll probably be back to building bomb shelters in our basements.

RAFSANJANI SAYS MUSLIMS SHOULD USE NUCLEAR WEAPON AGAINST ISRAEL


TEHRAN 14 Dec. (IPS) One of Iran?s most influential ruling cleric called Friday on the Muslim states to use nuclear weapon against Israel, assuring them that while such an attack would annihilate Israel, it would cost them "damages only".


"If a day comes when the world of Islam is duly equipped with the arms Israel has in possession, the strategy of colonialism would face a stalemate because application of an atomic bomb would not leave any thing in Israel but the same thing would just produce damages in the Muslim world", Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi-Rafsanjani told the crowd at the traditional Friday prayers in Tehran.

The constat threat of nuclear destruction is the only thing keeping anyone safe. Ever heard MAD. MAD is the only reason why we are even here.

And mono if you knew your enemy had a gun even if you only planned to fist fight, wouldnt you perfer to be armed yourself. If your strapped it would be less likely that he would use a gun since he might get shot himself.

American doesnt have nukes to be able to attack other countries in war or peace. America has them so no other country will do that to them.

But this...

America is also the only country to ever use nuclear weapons on another country.
