Understanding the Iranian regime, leads to the only logical conclusion….bomb them.
Israel has the power to knock out Iran’s nuclear facilities
Mission would be Israeli air force’s biggest challenge since its founding
Israel’s “determination to prevent confrontation states . . . from gaining access to nuclear weapons” is the preemptive foreign policy doctrine of the Jewish state.
Those were the historic words of Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin’s administration. This week marks the 20th anniversary of Begin’s death, and his legacy is currently playing out in Israel’s drive to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
The Begin doctrine has been implemented twice in Israel’s history. In June 1981, Israel launched Operation Opera to destroy the Osirak nuclear reactor outside Baghdad. In September 2007, Israeli jets launched Operation Orchard, targeting Syria’s secret nuclear facility at al-Kibar.
Unlike Syria and Iraq, the Iranians have multiple nuclear installations scattered across the country, each over 1,000 miles away from Israel. To knock out the six key sites and return home safely would be the greatest challenge the Israeli air force has faced since its founding.
The heavy water reactor at Arak and uranium enrichment facility at Isfahan both sit above ground, making them vulnerable. Similarly, Iran’s nuclear plant at Bushehr is, like Osirak, a wide-open target.
