The Sunday London Times is reporting that Israel has drawn up secret plans to use tactical nuclear weapons to destroy uranium-enrichment sites in Iran. The Israeli weapons would each have a force equivalent to one-fifteenth of the bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.
WND reported Israel's training against a mock-up of Iran's Natanz uranium enrichment plant in March 2005. Tactics included raids by Israel's elite Shaldag commando unit and airstrikes by F-15 jets from the 69 Squadron, using bunker-busting bombs purchased from the U.S. to penetrate underground facilities.
Today's Times story reveals two other sites that would be targeted with conventional weapons: a heavy water plant at Arak capable of producing bomb-grade plutonium and a uranium conversion plant at Isfahan, where 250 tons of gas for the enrichment process have been stored in tunnels.
"As soon as the green light is given, it will be one mission, one strike and the Iranian nuclear project will be demolished," said one of the Times sources. A growing consensus in Israel's military says conventional strikes may no longer be adequate to destroy enrichment facilities built beneath 70 feet of concrete and rock.
While tactical atomic weapons are prominently featured in the current planning, the nuclear-tipped bunker-busters would reportedly be used only if a conventional attack was ruled out and if the U.S. declined to intervene. Pentagon sources were skeptical that the U.S. would give approval to the use of tactical nuclear weapons.
I have to ask, once again, we have to help Isreal. This country receives billions of dollars from our country, controls most of the MSM that attacks our country and party, yet they give us the option of do something or we will.
When we ask them to stop expanding settlements they ignore our requests. I understand they are an allie of ours, but it has to be a two way street. I understand their need to protect their country, but sometimes they fan the flames. I feel if they drop nukes on Iran, because we wont help, it will do nothing but make the Middle East more volatile than it already is.
Some choice they give us, you nuke 'em or we nuke 'em! Dissent is growing in Iran against the chicken farmer, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The Iranians are wondering were the oil money is going, students are having rallys and the chicken farmer has been booed at recent speeches. we need to let this play out.
