Israel must stop Iran from having nukes. Israel has a very very small land mass. It is only 85 miles wide and 290 miles long. It cannot take much of a hit before it collapses. It was decided years ago that the risks of attacking Iran were far less than the risks of trying to survive a nuclear detonation in Tel Aviv.
After the Israeli elections in January, Netanyahu will act, with or without the US. The retaliation will be severe. Israel, to preserve its existence, will probably use tactical nuclear bombs. The entire middle east will explode in war and oil prices will go through the roof.
One choice Israel may make is to EMPall of Iran to shut down the entire country. There would be no immediate deaths, but their ability to continue with their nuclear program or to retaliate would be nullified. The downside is that all of Iran would soon be without food and water and Israel would be blamed for a massive death toll.
Iran’s Plan: AP (10/18/12): The remarks by Gen. Hossein Salami (Iran) appear to be part of Iranian efforts to portray any strike against it as the trigger for a regional conflict that could draw in Iranian proxies, such as Lebanon’s militant Hezbollah group, on Israel’s borders.
“An attack by the Zionist regimewould be an opportunity to destroy that regime,” he said, speaking of Israel. “Their defense mechanism is not planned for big and long wars. Their threats are only psychological and if they cross the limit or act upon those threats, (Israel) will definitely be destroyed.”
Note: Israel has over 400 nukes and 3 nuke carrying submarines, do you think they will hesitate to use them to preserve their existence?
Here in the USAit is simple to prepare for, just plan on the most massive increases in fuel and then food the world has ever seen and probably, although I do not know the dynamics, significant inflation (loss of buying power). The cascading effects could lead to societal collapse.
So, one morning next spring when you hear that Iran has been attacked. Run don’t walk to Costco and buy all of the food you can before it is gone………
