Ahmadinejad: Not Worried About an Israeli Attack

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today met a group of newspaper editors in New York. Ahmadinejad dismissed threats of Israeli military actions against Iran’s nuclear facilities, and told the editors that Iran was not worried about an Israeli attack. (AP, 24 September)

In the past 48 hours, senior IRGC generals have warned that an Israeli attack was inevitable.

Ahmadinejad is in New York to attend the U.N. General Assembly, his eighth visit to the U.N. since taking office in 2005. This is also his last, as his two-term presidency ends next year.

Ahmadinejad is right. Israel do not have the logistical capability nor the adequate firepower to mount a sustained aerial campaign against Iran's heavily-fortified nuclear targets. If you doubt my statement, then Israel would have taken the initiative against Iran a long time ago. Remember folks, procrastination has never been part of the "Begin Doctrine" and that's what Israel been doing all these years, procrastinating and blustering against Iran with fruitless result.

Israel could vaporize every one of those fortified targets and would never consider doing so.

remember that when you discuss Israel's capacities and post your own blatherous opinion.

And you should remember that Anon 1:36's opinion reflect the views of many reputable US and Israeli military experts.

Only a fool would call these experts' opinions nonsense.

This is sort of like juxtaposing comments from Democrats, Republicans, American generals and admirals, and attempting to glean contradictions as what-- a demonstration of weakness, Nader?

Again, Iran's political environment is not monolithic.
