Reports: Israel discussing possible attack on Iran

Middle East Monitor

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday met with senior security and army officials to discuss preparations for a possible attack on Iran, local media outlets reported.

Israeli Kan news channel reported that Netanyahu met with Defence Minister Benny Gantz, Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi and officials in the ministries of defence and finance to discuss the possibility of transferring funds from emergency security bases to finance the expected operational plans against Iran.

The meeting comes ahead of the cabinet meeting today which will be convened at the invitation of Netanyahu to discuss “developments related to the Iranian issue”.

Local media outlets said the council will discuss “Iran’s raising of uranium enrichment levels, the American warning that Iran might be weeks away from acquiring materials for a nuclear weapon, the possibility of the US administration’s speedy return to the nuclear agreement and the bombing that took place in the vicinity of the Israeli embassy in India, and other Iranian retaliatory attempts.”

On Monday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken warned that “Iran might be weeks away from possessing nuclear weapon materials” if it continued to violate the nuclear agreement.

Reuters reported Blinken as saying that the United States “is ready to rejoin the nuclear deal if Iran returns”.

Last week, the Israeli Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi announced that he had ordered the army to prepare operational plans for a possible attack on Iran this year.

  1. And who will carry out the “attack”? Why, the US of course! I guess because cowardly Israel that couldn’t even beat Hezbollah in 2006 has too many “Jewish fingernails” that can’t even defeat rock-throwing Palestinians! Gee Israel is really “blessed” doncha know…. Bwahahahahahah!

  2. I say, “Go For It” Israel. We’re not holding you back. Use your own Sons and Daughters to die fighting that “evil regime” in Iran. No US military will be involved in any manner. Including US Airlift capability to bail you out like Nixon did in 1973. It’s of ZERO concern for the US. We won’t lift a finger either way. Win or lose, it will be entertaining. We’ll sell you as much overpriced military crap as you need (with the $Billions of Dollars we give you every year). It’s a Win-Win for the US. To be honest, since the Cold War Policy of MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) worked so well for the US and the USSR? I think the US should give Iran multiple small yield nuclear weapons and multiple types of short range “theater” delivery systems. Just like the ones Israel stole from the US. Then both sides over there can STFU. Or be totally destroyed. Personally, I’d prefer Option 2. DO IT. Let’s see if Israel can “Walk the Walk”. Or if they’re FOS. Again, I suspect it’s Option 2. One Caveat. This has all been an excellent plan that I thought up myself. In the “real world” it’s called “wishful thinking”. Anyone believing that this will be US policy? I apologize. I needed to get it off my chest. No Cognitive Dissonance intended.
