    Default The Nuclear Annihilation of Israel?

    JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel successfully test-fired on Wednesday a missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead and striking Iran, fanning a public debate over whether the country's leaders are agitating for a military attack on Tehran's atomic facilities.
    While Israeli leaders have long warned that a military strike was an option, the most intensive round of public discourse on the subject was ignited over the weekend by a report in the Yediot Ahronot newspaper that said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak favor an attack.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is seeking cabinet support for a military strike on Iran, the Haaretz newspaper reported on Wednesday, after days of speculation about plans for an attack.

    This presents a scary scenario as Iran has its nuclear enrichment facilities, the probably target of an Israeli attack, scattered all over the country with some being underground, such as at Isfahan, which are hardened against conventional attacks including the “block buster” bombs that the United States has previously furnished to Israel. The only possible attack that would be successful is a nuclear attack.

    So what would the US and other nuclear weapons nations authorized by the NPT do in the event of Israel starting a nuclear war against Iran?

    The five nations that are authorized under the NPT to have nuclear weapons have an obligation to the entire world to ensure that any rogue nuclear weapon nation does not start a nuclear war. We cannot allow a nuclear war by any nations and those nations which are authorized to have nuclear weapons must, by all reasonable standards, respond to any nuclear attack with a nuclear response against the attacking nation. I can see no other options available. If the authorized nuclear weapons nations do not respond with nuclear force then nothing prevents any nation from starting a nuclear war.

    Will the US, China, Britain, France and Russia respond with nuclear force if Israel initiates a nuclear war against Iran? That is unquestionably what they would need to do if we are to prevent any nation from starting a nuclear war. And we cannot allow Israel or any other nation to start a nuclear war. The same criteria of “mutually assured destruction” which prevented a nuclear war between the former USSR and the US needs to be in place. If Israel starts a nuclear war in must face the consequences of its total annihilation by a nuclear response. We cannot allow Israel or any nation to use nuclear weapons, period.

    Israel must be warned that any nuclear attack on any nation for any reason is unacceptable and will result in nuclear retalliation against Israel. This matter is way above any other political considerations. Nuclear wars simply can't be allowed and the threat must be real if we are to avoid the total destruction of all life on Earth through nuclear war.

    An interesting thought. I seriously doubt Israel will strike Iran with a nuclear bomb. I do believe that sometime in the future they will destroy Iran's nuclear facilities with conventional weapons.

    There are 22 bomb sites in Iran..

    Israel has been threatening Iran since 2002.. I think they won't.. Israel is angling for the US to do it for them.

    Iran does not have a nuclear weapon. We know that so there is no reason for an attack at all.

    Israel, on the other hand, does have nuclear weapons that need to be destroyed. How many sites would need to be bombed to eliminate the nuclear threat presented by Israel?

    If Iran gets nukes then US, China, Britain, France and Russia should deal with it directly , If they are found to be developing nuclear weapons they should also be the ones to deal with it,

    The good guys are supposed to wait until they are attacked by the bad guy who does not play by the rules.

    Does not sound like a viable option for long. What about the regulations on the rogue state that is in violation of nuclear rules?

    And knowing the US government, we will. And it will cost the american taxpayer trillions more than what already has been spent in Afganistan and Iraq. And it will lead to more terrorist attacks against america......
