(UK Times Online) ISRAEL has drawn up secret plans for a combined air and ground attack on targets in Iran if diplomacy fails to halt the Iranian nuclear programme...
Israeli forces have used a mock-up of Iran's Natanz uranium enrichment plant in the desert to practise destroying it. Their tactics include raids by Israel's elite Shaldag (Kingfisher) commando unit and airstrikes by F-15 jets from 69 Squadron, using bunker-busting bombs to penetrate underground facilities.
With Iran intent on developing it's nuclear program, all attempts by either Europe or America to "appease" the Iranians are doomed to fail. Iran has repeatedly stated that is will not abide by any international intervention regarding it's nuclear program, so all discussions to persuade the Iranian regime to end it's program are essentially pointless.
Unless an earthquake happens, Iran will undoubtedly develop a working nuclear facility (along with nukes if that is their goal) and Israel will bomb them leading to a possible World War Three.
"No pressure, bribe or threat can make Iran give up its legitimate right to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes," said an Iranian spokesman.
US officials warned last week that a military strike on Iranian nuclear facilities by Israeli or American forces had not been ruled out should the issue become deadlocked at the United Nations.
Since European carrots and American sticks are not enough to pursued the regime to abandon it's nuclear ambitions, perhaps an Israeli strike is inevitable. The United States may refer Iran to the U.N. Security Council for possible sanctions, but these will fail not because of a possible veto from Russia or China, but because nations like India will refuse to acknowledge them.
With Israel and Iran already at odds with each other, with both sides seeing the other as a threat towards national security (with trade nations backing both sides respectively) a war is immanent between these forces. These talks are only a delaying tactic before the inevitable happens. Great.
