Israel 'plots Iran raid'

From a report out of Gulf Daily News:

MANAMA: Israel is massing warplanes in the Caucasus for an attack on Iran, it was revealed yesterday.
Preparations are underway to launch the military attack from Azerbaijan and Georgia, reports our sister paper Akhbar Al Khaleej, quoting military sources.

Israel was, in fact, training pilots in Turkey to launch the strike and was smuggling planes into Georgia using Turkish airspace, they said.

However, Turkey was unaware of Israel's intention of transferring the planes to Georgia, the sources said.

The unexpected crisis between Israel and Turkey following an Israeli commando raid on an aid flotilla bound for Gaza Strip hit Israeli calculations.

Azerbaijan-based intelligence units, working under the cover of technicians, trainers and consultants, have helped with the preparations, the sources said.

Military equipment, mostly supplied by the US, was transported to a Georgian port via the Black Sea.

Georgian coastguard and Israeli controllers are co-operating to hide the operations from Russian vessels, said the sources.

They point out that according to Israel, it will not be in a position to launch a strike on Iran without using bases in Georgia and Azerbaijan due to the limited capabilities of its nuclear submarines stationed near the Iranian coast.

Meanwhile, Iran's Press TV reported that a very large contingent of US ground forces had massed in Azerbaijan, near the Iranian border. The independent Azerbaijani news website Trend confirmed the report.

Those reports came just days after the Pentagon confirmed that an unusually large fleet of US warships had indeed passed through Egypt's Suez Canal en route to the Gulf. At least one Israeli warship reportedly joined the American armada.

Press TV also quoted Iranian Revolutionary Guard Brigadier General Mehdi Moini as saying that the country's forces are mobilized and ready to face Israeli and American "misadventures" near its borders.

This is quite a piece of intrigue. Striking Iran from Azerbaijan would shorten the distance, but would leave Azerbaijan bases particularly vulnerable to even SRBM counter-strikes. And if the US were serious about a strike against Iran, it has the forces already in place to do so, effectively. There's an element of PSYOP to this story. A further corroboration is required.

There is a lot of smoke coming out about an imminent strike on Iran for the past decade like a broken record. I personally, think the Zionist regime, no matter how arrogant and full of itself, would be committing its worst miscalculation since the consequences of such a folly would be horrendous an will have global fallout. As the US and 43 assorted puppets in Afghanistan are finding out the hard way, starting a war is easy, however, ending it is far more difficult.

As to Turkey, it's becoming clear what price it will have to pay for its breakaway form the west (north).
The Kurds are trying to provoke the anti-AKP army again with their attacks and Azerbaijan is becoming an ever greater liability as Turkey's "ally" since the new Karabakh escalation recently... with such allies in the neighborhood you don't need any enemies.

i think this is real. If Israel intends to precipitate a war in the near east, they must feel that they should do it right away. Their grip on the US popular mood is slipping fast. The way I see it, Israel will probably attack Iran, Syria and Lebanon simultaneously. All the NATO allies, including Turkey, will endeavour to remain uninvolved, but Iran can be expected to retaliate against any sources of attacks. The US might announce that any retaliation against a NATO ally will invite the US use of nuclear weapons

What you say is true, the Zionist agenda is to goad the US into a final suicidal war but I believe that the US is in such a geo-strategic and economic mess that even the neo-crazies will shirk from an outright war against Iran. The Zionist entity by itself simply can not sustain a multi-front and endless war against Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas and Syria.

Iranian and Hezbollah retaliation will bring massive death and destruction to all Zionist cities in occupied Palestine. Just in the short 33 day conflict agianst Hezbollah in 2006, over a MILLION dual passport holding Zionist cowards fled to US, Canada, Europe, Cyprus and Austrlia. Imagine what kind of havoc thousands of Fajrs, ZelZel, Shahabs, Sejils etc would cause. There is more than 75% probability that Syria will also join in and try to wrestle back the Golan. The Zionist entity will have to go on indefinite total mobilization, which it can not sustain. The Turkish response is also a big question mark now?

Hezbollah was only firing tiny 122mm Katyushas, Iranians will NOT be firing mere firecrackers. So I don't believe even the rabidly insane Zionists will initiate a total war in the region, that will bring them ruin. Iran and the Muslim world with over 2 BILLION people can even sustain a nuclear war, the 5 million imported Zionists can not.

The US bankrupt economy is headed towards a DEPRESSION as Nobel Prize winning economist Paul Krugman predicts in today's NY Times op-ed.

Iran has a very lousy radar-coverage on her Afghani border, making it much more interesting to attack from that angle. The Hormuz strait has a weak radar spot bordering the UAE which can enable planes from Saudi-Arabia to slip into Iranian airspace. Israel wont even have to fly these sorties, the Saudis have a fleet (87) of well-equipped treetop-level-ground hogging Tornado fighter-bombers which can do the job. The Iranian nuke isn't just Israel's problem, it would also trigger a expensive and dangerous nuclear arms race between Iran, Saudi-Arabia, Egypt and Turkey. None of these Sunni countries are in any way happy with the idea of a Shiite nuclear power in its mids.

Seriously guy let this fantasy rest a while. The Saudis can't fly a kite let alone fly at tree-top level 1000 miles into Iranian airspace undetected in Tornados (good one). Did you bother to watch their military illustrious "performance" against the Zaidi Shias in Yemen?

Israel hopes to shoot first and then the rest will join to save them. But it wont .. alone the Azeris will start an uprising.. and at the end of the day a religous revival wont be so far fetched in Azerbayjan at all.

the dice shall role and i have feeling Iran shall prevail
