Not Easy without US

Reader comment on item: Israeli Jets vs. Iranian Nukes

Submitted by Constant Head (United States), Jun 12, 2007 at 11:11

Quite a lot of factors are against Israel acting alone:

1. Israel's Muslim neighbors will NOT allow access to Israel's jets.
2. The Iranians are very Nationalistic people and will all stand behind their Ahmedenejad to attach and destroy Israel with their deadly long rang missiles.
3. Israel could not defeat the Iranian backed Hezbullah in Lebanon, how will it defeat the Iranians itself?
4. Israel does not have the will power, money and ammunition to prolong the war. But Iran does. We have all seen Iran fight the Iraq (which was backed by US, Saudia, Kuwait) for 9 long years and still win.

Israel is in a Bad/Tough position to fight the Persians, and on the other had US (already stuck in 3 wars) is unwilling to join, which is exactly the reason Israel hasn't made any move yet.
