Us Iran Attack Plans


 JERUSALEM — An Israeli newspaper reported Sunday that the Obama administration’s top security official has briefed Israel on U.S. plans for a possible attack on Iran, seeking to reassure it that Washington is prepared to act militarily should diplomacy and sanctions fail to pressure Tehran to abandon its nuclear enrichment program.

A senior Israeli official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss confidential talks, said the article in the Haaretz daily was incorrect.

Haaretz said National Security Adviser Tom Donilon laid out the plans before Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a dinner at a visit to Israel earlier this month. It cited an unidentified senior American official as the source of its report, which came out as presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was telling Israel he would back an Israeli military strike against Iran.

The American official also said Donilon shared information on U.S. weapons that could be used for such an attack, and on the U.S. military’s ability to reach Iranian nuclear facilities buried deep underground, the newspaper said. It cited another U.S. official involved in the talks with Israel as concluding that “the time for a military operation against Iran has not yet come.” Read the rest of this entry »

Saudi Arabia To ‘Immediately’ Go Nuclear Should Iran Develop Bomb

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on February 10, 2012

Saudi Arabia would immediately push to acquire nuclear weapons should Iran carry out a successfully nuclear test, according to a report in The Times.

Quoting an unnamed Saudi source, the newspapers said that Riyadh would launch a “twin-track nuclear weapons programme” should Tehran finally achieve their long-standing ambition of becoming a nuclear-armed power.

Since the Iranian revolution of 1979, Sunni-dominated Saudi Arabia has suffered an uneasy relationship with their Shia neighbour, with religious, cultural and ideological divisions stretching back centuries.

Should Iran “go nuclear”, the move would be seen by Riyadh as too great a threat, triggering an arms race in the Middle East.

Speaking to The Times, a senior Saudi source said: “There is no intention currently to pursue a unilateral military nuclear programme but the dynamics will chance immediately if the Iranians their own nuclear capability. Politically, it would be completely unacceptable to have Iran with a nuclear capability and not the Kingdom. ” Read the rest of this entry »
