SEND IN THE NUKES.

Reader comment on item: Foxbats Did Fly over Dimona

Submitted by DAVID J FEIGER (United States), Oct 17, 2012 at 01:53

The Soviet's role in initiating the '67 war has been known for years. The why has been an open issue. Was this a Soviet gamble to turn the heat up on LBJ . Bogged down in Nam , an anti war movement being seeded by professional students combining social reforms, ending women's hours with socialist ideals of combating colonial oppression. LBJ's CIVIL RIGHTS and WAR ON POVERTY legislation were dividing the country also. Why would a plan to attack a nuclear facility of a tiny state while fighting a war for survival unleash totally unforeseen consequences. Israel was respected, and seen as an innovative courageous nation defeating overwhelming aggressors to survive.

What today has been anti-semitically labeled Palestinian territory is Jewish and disputed. Perhaps the Soviets believed in Arab overwhelming force tp force LBJ to take action since France and Britian refused to honor their post Sinai war treaty to aid Israel. The West could not ignore a Soviet strike against Israel, the Red Sea, Suez and the Gulf might have ael. Cuba's accepted understanding could evaporate. A drawn out conflict affecting the Eastern Med, Red Sea, Suez and Gulf could have left the Kremlin in an passive appearing position while shaking LBJ's strategic defences. The antisemitic Israel haters in their personification of Orwellian mind control find a hit on Dimona great jew hating Iran loving propaganda.
