Israel is Ready, if Necessary

This is very nearly getting out of hand.

Israel said today that they are getting ready to take military action against Iran to stop their nuclear program.

“Israel will not be able to accept an Iranian nuclear capability and it must have the capability to defend itself, with all that that implies, and this we are preparing,” Shaul Mofaz said.

His comments at an academic conference stopped short of overtly threatening a military strike but were likely to add to growing tensions with Iran.

They have good reason to be worried, given the anti-Israeli rhetoric being thrown about by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who’s proving to be a serious lunatic.

Sure, everyone hopes and believes that this standoff will be solved by diplomacy, but one shouldn’t underestimate the intentions of Ahmadinejad. If he is indeed capable of building nuclear weapons and threatens to use them, the USA will on him like white on rice. And a war like that would make Iraq look like romper room.

    I hope Isreal takes Iran seriously miltairy wise, sure they have some outdated stuff I’m sure of but last I heard the air force numbers 30,000 and 18 million are available. (though only 540,000 in the army) Regardless it will be no Iraq and with 68 million population…a war with Iran will be very ugly.
