Israel Military Considering Iran Attack

One can never lose money betting on the stupidity of Israel leaders when it comes to issues of how to attain peace in the Middle East. Instead of embracing the Arab League proposal for peace based on 1967 borders, Israel leaders engage in rhetoric rather than dealing with reality. The Jerusalem Post now reveals the Israel Defense Force(IDF) is drawing up plans for a strike on Iranian nuclear facilities regardless of whether America approves of the attack or not. One Defense minister noted that while it was preferable to work in coordination with allies, “we are also preparing options that do not include coordination.” An assumption of the IDF is they can seriously impact Iranian nuclear facilities with air strikes whether assisted by the United States or not.

An attack on Iran would unleash thousands of terrorists including hundreds of suicide bombers which would result in chaos in the Middle East and elsewhere. There is a new American president and he deserves an opportunity to work with Israel and Arab nations in order to attain peace. Attacking Iran is an act of stupidity that will destroy possibilities for peace for at least ten years.

Is President Bush Planning An Attack On Iran?

Israel Army Radio reported that President Bush intends to attack Iran in the coming months before the end of his term. It quotes a senior member of the Bush entourage which recently concluded talks with the Israel government as saying during a closed session wih Israel leaders and Vice President Dick Cheney, they were told of the president’s desire for war with Iran. However, said the source, both Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Secretary of State Condoloeezza Rice, opposed the move and were forcing the president to hold off, at least as of this moment.

The source claimed Bush was upset at recent events in Lebanon which he blamed on Iranian influence in the country and insisted “the disease must be treated.” There were no terrorists in Iraq until George Bush created them with his invasion of that country. An attack on Iran would result in hundreds of missiles being fired into Israel costing the lives of thousands of people. It would also result in Hizbullah and Hamas initiating attacks and plunging Israel into a two front war. The president still has not learned from his experience in Iraq the cure can sometimes be worse than the disease.
