Yet Another 'No Srsly Israel Is Gonna Attack' Story

Good ol' JPost brings us this story of an impending Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear facilities, with or without American support. Perhaps the only thing separating this story from the slew of similar articles over the last year or so is the fact that the U.S. is currently in presidential limbo.

Well, that and the fact that Iran is as close as ever to possessing an Islamic Bomb (if they don't have one or several already). From the Jerusalem Post:
Israeli officials have said it would be difficult, but not impossible, to launch a strike against Iran without receiving codes from the US Air Force, which controls Iraqi airspace. Israel also asked for the codes in 1991 during the First Gulf War, but the US refused.

"There are a wide range of risks one takes when embarking on such an operation," a top Israeli official said.
Yeah, like the Star of David getting shot down by the Stars and Bars, or God forbid the Star and Crescent. Israel's task of destroying a sufficient number of Iranian sites is daunting, but not impossible. And besides, impossible aerial missions are supposed to be what the IAF is all about.

The even more daunting aspect of a strike is the aftermath. As disgusted as most Iranians are with their rulers, nothing will unify them more than an Israeli bombing run. And nothing will cause oodles of self-detonating Shiites around the world to murder innocent civilians, something Israel will - believe it or not - attempt to avoid during a strike. It will almost immediately awaken two particularly vile arms of the Persian Octopus, Hamas and Hezbollah, igniting war on the northern border with Lebanon, and inviting more rockets and suicide attacks.

That is, of course, providing Iran doesn't just launch their own arsenal, nuclear or otherwise.
