    Israel stations nuclear missile subs off Iran


    Three German-built Israeli submarines equipped with nuclear cruise missiles are to be deployed in the Gulf near the Iranian coastline.


    The first has been sent in response to Israeli fears that ballistic missiles developed by Iran, Syria and Hezbollah, a political and military organisation in Lebanon, could hit sites in Israel, including air bases and missile launchers.


    The submarines of Flotilla 7 — Dolphin, Tekuma and Leviathan — have visited the Gulf before. But the decision has now been taken to ensure a permanent presence of at least one of the vessels.


    The flotilla’s commander, identified only as “Colonel O”, told an Israeli newspaper: “We are an underwater assault force. We’re operating deep and far, very far, from our borders.”


    Each of the submarines has a crew of 35 to 50, commanded by a colonel capable of launching a nuclear cruise missile.


    The vessels can remain at sea for about 50 days and stay submerged up to 1,150ft below the surface for at least a week. Some of the cruise missiles are equipped with the most advanced nuclear warheads in the Israeli arsenal.


    The deployment is designed to act as a deterrent, gather intelligence and potentially to land Mossad agents. “We’re a solid base for collecting sensitive information, as we can stay for a long time in one place,” said a flotilla officer.


    The submarines could be used if Iran continues its programme to produce a nuclear bomb. “The 1,500km range of the submarines’ cruise missiles can reach any target in Iran,” said a navy officer.


    Apparently responding to the Israeli activity, an Iranian admiral said: “Anyone who wishes to do an evil act in the Persian Gulf will receive a forceful response from us.”


    Israel’s urgent need to deter the Iran-Syria-Hezbollah alliance was demonstrated last month. Ehud Barak, the defence minister, was said to have shown President Barack Obama classified satellite images of a convoy of ballistic missiles leaving Syria on the way to Hezbollah in Lebanon.


    Binyamin Netanyahu, the prime minister, will emphasise the danger to Obama in Washington this week.


    Tel Aviv, Israel’s business and defence centre, remains the most threatened city in the world, said one expert. “There are more missiles per square foot targeting Tel Aviv than any other city,” he said.

    Israeli leadership has something our leadership lacks. Resolve, and the gonads to back it up.

    Isreal has never admitted to having nuclear capabilities They may have u-boats, however they would never admit to haveing nuclear cruse missiles on board.

    Tin Man88,

    Israel is smarter than we are. They keep their mouths shut. They kill you if you attack them. They have nukes and will stick one in the Damascus town square if the loony Mullahs in Iran launch one at Telaviv. They don't really give a sh!# what they think in Sweden or Denmark or anywhere else for that matter. They realize BHO is a socialist politician who will not help them and has no balls. They may be the only ones stopping the jihadists from sending one here!

    Bob

    A few years ago my wife & myself lived on a boat. We spent a few winters @ Key West NAS @ Boca Chica Marina. One of our neighbors owned an Alexandria Va. think tank. Everytime military action was going to start he would appear on one or two of the cable news shows. He told me he had met up with Ariel Sharon several times. Sharon told him that Israel had over 300 nukes & the only thing that mattered to the Israeli military would be the survival of the State of Israel. Furthermore, he was told as a doomsday scenario, Israel would destroy every bit of Arabra oil intra-structure. By doing this their value(Arab oil resources) to the western world would evaporate for hundreds of years.

    It's only a matter of time when Isreal shuts them down if they cause problems. We should be doing the same.

    I just got off Yahoo's news site where I read each article that has to do with the recent Israeli attack on the Palestinians. There were about 4 articles that broached this subject and each had a place to comment on the stories.

    I was amazed at the anti- Israeli sentiment. It was nearly universal and the comments were quite militant toward Israel. Not really pro-Palestinian but definitely sympathetic to the Muslim cause.

    I wrote a respectful comment in support of the Israeli's and was hammered from the other side so hard that 30 minutes later, my comment was deleted by the site manager stating is was "too provacative."

    What in the hell is happening in this world? Scares the hell out of me.

    libtard zeal is out of control on the latest regarding the Palistinian "aid" ships.

    Painting the Israelis as the bad boy here is an attempt to conceal the smuggling of arms which will be used against Israel. The blockade is a self defense measure.

    Israel offered the use of their ports, and also offered to transfer the cargo themselves.

    Of course the rockets and missiles would be confiscated.

    I'm with Israel on this one.

    Barry, Who has control of the media? Why are you surprised? It is currently poiltically correct to be a Liberal, anti-capitalistic, hate Isreal, Sympathetic to the Muslims, and save the planet. Even the History channnel has a special next week about the "Whale Savers", and most of what they do is illegal on International waters.

    People, You do not realize how close to Armagedon (sic) we really are! If this comes to shooting, our present way of life comes to an abrupt end. The transport of oil will either end or be sharply curtailed and industry will grind to a halt. If it escalates and goes nuclear, all bets are off.

    Israel has a stated policy that it would rather see the end of the world rather than the end of Israel. Can they make good that threat? I believe that they have the weapons and the will to do so if their existance is threatened.

    What will America do? With the current administration, that is anyone's guess. However, our President has not shown that he even understands what is at risk. He has insulted the Israeli Prime Minister as well as our closest ally, Great Britain. This fool could jump in any direction but evidence suggests that it would favor the Muslims. Israel's reaction would be catastriphic!

    CHRIST on a cara,,carro,,, bah- Muhammed on a merry-go-round.

    All the "new glass parking lot" mongers will be $h!++!ng themselves dead if this ever does come to a head. Birdogs and TinMan are the only ones who can see clearly through the media slants and spins.

    When those troublesome towelheads lit the oil wells on fire, the black cloud screwed up the weather all across the Northern hemispere. When the radio-active dust starts circling, it'll be your Health and your food and water that'll be eft. Then the shoe will be on the other foot as we all illegally immigrate to South America in hungry, radiation poisoned waves.

    See, God does have a sense of Humor. And ALL the towelhead countries have a nuke that they will sling right after the Jews launch the first one.

    I'm-a-genie-dad (Ahmadinejad) is a Helluva poker player when it comes to nukes, makes JFK look like a piker. And just like Kennedy, he'll get his way. Not because he's any Righter than Kennedy was, but because, just like then, cooler heads will prevail and have the trouble-makers shot. Or the Jews will tell us all to go eff ourselves and then it's off to Argentina to hide from their wrath.

    Israel will NOT allow Iran to have nuclear weapons. They know that a nuclear armed Iran will mean destruction of Israel

    Israel will NOT allow Iran to have nuclear weapons. They know that a nuclear armed Iran will mean the destruction of Israel and that they will not risk. Thus, the stage is set for an Israeli attack on Iran. It will likely be with an overpowering conventional air attack coupled with an appeal to the Iranian people to overthrow their regime. When it will come depends on Israeli intel.

    The Muslim world will strike back at Israel from all sides and the Israelis may be forced to use nuclear weapons to survive. The sea lanes in the middle-east will shut down and the world's oil supply will slow to a trickle. The consequences will be economically disastrous.

    The question is what will the US do? Will the US provide aid to Israel or watch as the situation spins out of control and takes civilization to the brink? THIS IS COMING! DON"T BE SURPRISED WHEN IT HAPPENS! Only a regime change in Iran can stop this. Strong support of Israel RIGHT NOW could change this course. The Mulim world could be convinced that such a series of events would mean the end of their ascendancy and perhaps existance. BUT, will this adminiastration do that? In the President's autobiography he says that if it came dowm to it, he "would stand with the Muslims". Do you have any doubts about the fate of the world now?
