Reader comment on item: Israeli Jets vs. Iranian Nukes

Submitted by Barry Miller (United States), Jun 12, 2007 at 16:09

Dr. Pipes,

Inre: the MIT Study. Did the study take into account a key issue of how the Israeli jets would be refueled during their return to Israel? That's going to be a tough problem unless the aircraft are permitted to land by prior arrangement with one of the neighboring Arab states. Imagine that's unlikely. And if the study didn't tackle this issue, you can discount its value.

Of course, it took refueling into account.
