Scenario for 2009 Israeli Strike on Iran
Analysis by Gordon Prather

This week, Israeli President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu both warned that if Hillary’s “diplomacy” failed to halt “Iran’s nuclear activities,” Israel would be left with “no option” but to attack and destroy them.
Never mind that on 15 November, 2007, IAEA Director-General reported for the umpteenth time he had “been able to verify the non-diversion of declared nuclear material in Iran” to a military purpose.
A few days after that 2007 IAEA report, Anthony Cordesman, widely acknowledged to be an expert on military affairs at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, updated his war-game scenario entitled “Iran, Israel and Nuclear War; An Illustrative Scenario Analysis.”
Apparently, however, Cordesman, concluded that, because of the Likudnik paranoia, “the latest IAEA report on Iran again illustrates the risks of nuclear war in the Middle East.” >>>
