Why such an article ?

Reader comment on item: Israeli Jets vs. Iranian Nukes

Submitted by Jon (France), Jun 13, 2007 at 08:02

Private experts delivering a tactical paper/briefing to a third country on how to attack another country's facilities ? It smells as if someone is trying to preempt the obvious: an Israeli nuke attack delivered by balistic missiles to the targets identified.

Obviously the main reason the US might want to attack these sites is to avoid a nuclear attack on Iran's sites by Israel. That would be the only logical reason, since today the Iranians only threaten Irak, and the US has already lost that "peace".

If the US want to "take the military option off the table" it is implicit that they understand the results. Such an article as this reasonably has the objective, but surely not the effect, of introducing some uncertainty as to Israel's reaction.
