    Israel successfully tests missile interceptor

    "The "Iron Dome" system is expected to be fully operational within a year."" If They Have That Much Time Left ?"

    Israel has successfully tested a new defence system designed to intercept rockets fired from southern Lebanon and the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, public radio reported on Sunday.

    The "Iron Dome" system is expected to be fully operational within a year and will be able to intercept the military-grade Katyusha rockets used by Lebanon's Hezbollah militia and the cruder Qassam rockets favoured by Hamas.

    Citing Israeli security officials, public radio said the system would also be effective against mortar fire which has a much smaller window of warning. In January Prime Minister Ehud Olmert viewed a prototype of the 200-million-dollar (140-million-euro) system,...

    Navy Owns First Wave of Iranian Strikes
    snip
    "The attack would probably come by air".
    Waves of U.S. cruise missiles,Armed Drones and warplanes loaded with smart weapons would swoop into Iran from the sea and land bases to destroy key nuclear facilities.

    "Out in the Arabian Gulf, the U.S. Navy would wipe out Iranís Navy in a matter of days. Iranís air defenses could possibly take out a few higher-flying U.S. Air Force and Navy tactical jets before being located and destroyed.

    "In short, the first round would go decisively to the United States.
    "But it wouldnít be without serious repercussions. And the U.S. Navy would likely take the brunt of those. Itís the unconventional threat that would vex U.S. sailors."
    The article also reminds us that the Iranians still have Tomcats with Phoenix missiles.

    "The Iranian Phoenix missiles are so far out of revision that there are doubts they can fly, The warhead explosives are badly fragmented and unstable ."

    "Those outdated missiles would have been long scrubbed from any US Navy inventories by now as obsolete ."

    American intel sources have previously reported that the Iranians successfully employed the Phoenix a number of times during the Iran-Iraq War, which would make the Iranian Air Force the only service to use that legendary missile in combat.

    (I, on the other hand, have used the Phoenix in the Puerto Rican Op Area to take care of some nasty drones that were threatening San Juan. Just doing my job, m'am.)

    How Close is Israel to Attacking Iran?
    snip
    Last week, an extraordinary leak revealed the fact that Israel had conducted massive military exercises in the waters off of Greece. The significance should be obvious:Those exercises - reportedly involving about 100 fighters, tactical bombers, refueling planes and rescue helicopters - were conducted about 900 miles west of Israel's shores in the Mediterranean. Iran's nuclear facilities at Bushehr, Isfahan and Natanz all fall roughly within the same radius, albeit in the opposite direction.

    The point was not lost on Tehran, which promptly warned of "strong blows" in the event of a pre-emptive Israeli attack.
    snip

    It hasn't worked. Iran has rejected repeated offers of technical and economic assistance, most recently this month. Despite four years of pleading, the Administration has failed to win anything but weak U.N. sanctions. Russia plans to sell advanced antiaircraft missiles to Iran and finish work on a nuclear reactor at Bushehr, though spent fuel from that reactor could eventually be diverted and reprocessed into weapons-usable plutonium. Chinese companies still invest in Iran, while the U.N.'s chief nuclear inspector, Mohamed ElBaradei, has repeatedly downplayed Iran's nuclear threat.

    While the rest of the world dithers, Israel prepares to act. And only the most willfully self deluded can blame them.

    Who is it that has promised to "wipe Israel off the map?" Who is it who constantly threatens Israel with the most bellicose, the most outrageous rhetoric - not seen since the heydey of Adolf Hitler and his promise to wipe Czechoslovakia from existence?

    There are many in the west who hear these threats and chalk them up to pure bombast or worse, deny that Iran is even making these threats, that we misunderstand what President Ahmadinejad and the rest of the Iranian leadership is saying - "mistranslation" is a common excuse.


    But no one ever asks the question "Can Israel take that chance?" Their preparations would seem to indicate that they don't believe they can.

    Military experts will point out that Israel cannot carry out such a mission successfully, that it would be madness for them to try. We have seen the IDF make miracles before so I would caution those who would rule out such an attack completely. But the point isn't can it be done but rather does Israel feel it is necessary? If the Jewish state feels they have no other choice, I believe they will strike - regardless of the odds and world opinion.
