Reader comment on item: How Israel Might Destroy Iran's Nuclear Program

Submitted by Yosef (United States), Jul 16, 2015 at 00:17

Speculation on other options based on reading too many sci fi novels, that fall under the special ops category: EMP type attack at critical infrastructure; traditional infrastructure sabotage such as refining capacity, raills, electrical substation and other utility mischief; diversionary attacks on pro-Iranian forces in Syria so Iran diverts resources; pirate attacks on shipping; perhaps "IS" will carry out its trademark attacks in Iran which would of course be blamed on Israel; epidemics (insect/animal-traced); ethnic incitements; etc. Use your imagination!

Also don't rule or count out what a Sunni-origin major operation can do including Saudi airpower linked with Paki applied physics and the abilities of the naval forces of the Gulf states operating closer to home than Israel to land special forces or otherwise oppose Iran and pay for help from mercenaries.. Or God causing a series of earthquakes. If the Saudis and Israel publically work together against the Shiite menace, there would be major ramifications for decades on mid east peace and economic development.
