Right Wing sources: Israel to attack Iran with missiles within 1-3 months

UPI/Washington Times editor Arnaud de Borchgrave, in The Middle East Times writes:

At Israel’s national day reception in Washington last week, an Israeli official, speaking privately and not for attribution said that he believed that Israel would strike first in the next “month or two or three” and that fighter bombers would not be involved as they were to take out Iraq’s Osirak nuclear reactor before it went critical in 1981.
For Osirak, Israel used 14 F-15s and F-16s. This time, the Israeli said, it will be missiles.

And as long as we’re on the topic of WMD possessing states which make psychopathic allusions to wiping other states from the map – the Jerusalem Post reports:

Vice Premier Shimon Peres said Monday that “the president of Iran should remember that Iran can also be wiped off the map.”

  1. Oh, because it’s the same thing, of course. Israel has parades displaying missiles with which it intends to wipe out the infidel enemy.
    Anti-Zionist moron.

  2. We’re not damned if we don’t. Only if we do. There’s nothing really terrible about a nuclear balance of power, unless one side is stupid enough to start a war.

  3. this report is setting off my BS alarm… cmon, do you really think an “Israeli official” would announce Israel’s military plans willy nilly? sounds like speculation blown out of proportion, or otherwise a propoganda strategy.

  4. I wouldn’t compare Shimon Peres’s comment to the one made my the president of Iran. (I’m not gonna bother look up the spelling of his name.) All Peres did was bring up mutually assured destruction… What’s wrong with deterrence? He’s not saying that Iran SHOULD be wiped off the map. Very big difference.

  5. i don’t think iran or israel will really attack each other. I think the Iranian government is blowing smoke, and I think the Israeli government probably knows that.

  6. The Iranian government has been arming, training and/or sponsoring terrorists to attack both the USA and Israel for years while the latter two have had nukes and Iran did not. What should we expect from a nuclear Iran? That smoke being blown may originate from a mushroom cloud.
    To paraphrase Kelsey above, damned if you do, dead if you don’t. A terrible situation, but not really a choice.
