Will Israel Strike Iran?
Caz asked a little while back what I thought and I said I didn't know. Probably. I could have added nothing else seems to be working.
Should Israel attack Iran? In the shifting sands right now my firm opinion for what it is worth is no. At least not alone. It can't be done.
The truth is most of the Arab world, Turkey and Europe would be delighted if the Israelis did the honours and did all the bleeding. Why wouldn't they? A nuclear Iran is just as much a threat to them as Israel. They would then turn on Israel like a dozen hyena packs on the edge of starvation.
It would be a trap. To hell with them. If it is to be done it is to be done with NATO. Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states too would be welcome.. Best of all leave Israel out of it. Wouldn't that be nice?
Let them all dwell on the prospect of what a brave new world this will be the day the mullahs announce they have the war heads and the means to deliver them as far as London and have let off a big bang in the Iranian hinterland to prove it..
Maybe the newly reinstalled Taliban in Afghanistan will let them have what's left of those Buddhas as a ground zero test site.
Think what a wonderful world it will be. Just like the song. . A world in which the Nazis have nukes but so do the Jews. A world that has already forgotten that the eradication of the Jews was not even the beginning of the Nazis plans for the world. .
