Israel’s secret plan to attack Iran is no secret at all

Posted by Anthony L. Hall

Governments around the world claimed to have been shocked, shocked by the report in Sunday’s Times of London that:

Israel has drawn up secret plans to destroy Iran’s uranium enrichment facilities with tactical nuclear weapons….[And that] two Israeli air force squadrons are training to blow up an Iranian facility using low-yield nuclear “bunker-busters”.

More specifically, the Times reported that:

Israel has identified three prime targets south of Tehran which are believed to be involved in Iran’s nuclear programme: Natanz, where thousands of centrifuges are being installed for uranium enrichment; A uranium conversion facility near Isfahan where, according to a statement by an Iranian vice-president last week, 250 tons of gas for the enrichment process have been stored in tunnels; and A heavy water reactor at Arak, which may in future produce enough plutonium for a bomb.

But no government worth its salt should be surprised by this report. After all, even I deduced over a year ago – after Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made it clear that he was determined not only to develop nuclear weapons but also “to wipe Israel off the map” – that, despite UN, EU and U.S. pledges to stop him, it would be left to Israel to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power.

In fact, here’s how I reiterated my prescient observation in this respect in an April 2006 column entitled Time to put up or shut up about Iran’s nuclear program:

…pay no mind to the international blather about Iran’s nuclear program. Because when Israel determines that Iran is on the threshold of possessing nuclear weapons that could, in fact, wipe it off the map, Israel will launch military strikes to take out Iran’s nuclear program, just as it did to take out Iraq’s nuclear facilities in 1981.

And, trust me, no one will appreciate being able to sit back and marvel at the mushroom clouds more than U.S. President George W. Bush….Enough said!
