Israel May Be Preparing To "Go It Alone" Against Iran Very Soon

The editor of THE JERUSALEM POST, claims that a senior official in the Israeli government has lost confidence in either the U.S. or U.N. attempts to stop the Iranian nuclear program, and that Israel may have to "go it alone" and attack Iran within the next 12 months.

Just yesterday, it was disclosed that Israel has purchased two new submarines from Germany that are capable of firing nuclear missiles. This brings the Israeli nuclear missile firing submarine force up to five submarines.

Many of the Iranian nuclear research sites are buried up to 50 to 75 feet underground in hardened concrete bunkers. These would require a direct hit by a nuclear missile to damage or destroy these sites. The conventional "bunker buster" missiles sold by the U.S. to Israel with depleted uranium warheads will not slice through hardened bunkers this thick or deep. Only a direct nuclear hit will possiby work.

Israel was not able to defeat 2,000 to 3,000 Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon. Yet they are now edging towards a much larger war with the 1,000,000 Iranian Revolutionary Guard Army and reserve units. Israel could likely become involved in a very large war that they cannot clearly win unless nuclear weapons are used and drag the U.S. into this conflict.

Just like George Bush who has only limited military experience, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has only a limited experience on military matters, and like Bush made a serious miscalculation of Lebanon similar to that Bush had made of the ease of war in Iraq. Ehud Olmert is now suffering from a new public opinon poll in which as much as 63% of Israeli voters now want him to resign. Far right wing Israeli political leader, Binjamin Netanyahu and his Lukid Party have proven a huge jump in public opinion and the center-left leaning Labor Party is now in position to win only 9 seats if the election were held today.

With either Olmert or Netanyahu in power, a war with Iran is very likely. MidEast peace is going to be very short lived it seems. Lebanon was unfortunately only a preview to the MidEast becoming completely unglued and very serious war soon resulting.
