Krauthammer: Leak Indicates Israeli Attack on Iran ‘Certain’, Incoming IAF Chief ‘Will Prepare Perfect Attack Plan’


In December 2011 we learned that Israel appointed an ‘Iran Command’ chief to head a new army formation and secretly completed a significant two-year-long upgrade to (at least) one of its submarines. Now we’re learning of a highly-esteemed new IAF chief chosen to create the ‘perfect attack plan’ against Iran. Meanwhile, as Ayatollah Ali Khamenei calls for the death of all Jews and the annihilation of Israel, a political pundit like Charles Krauthammer can digest and analyze perfectly well what is taking place, while Barack Obama — the ‘leader of the free world’ — still doesn’t seem to get it

By Jeff Poor – “Last week in his Washington Post column, David Ignatius wrote that Israel was preparing to attack Iran to prevent it from being able to build a nuclear bomb.

According to his Post opinion page colleague Charles Krauthammer, based on the source behind Ignatius’ claim it is likely an attack will occur.

On this weekend’s broadcast of ‘Inside Washington,’ Krauthammer explained his thought process.

‘I think it’s fairly certain the Israelis are going to attack or you would not have had this leak, deliberately coming this week from secretary of Defense through David Ignatius of The [Washington] Post saying that he thinks there is a high likelihood Israel is going to attack, and then he went ahead and specified when. He said three months, April, May or June. And you don’t say that unless there is obviously indications from the Israelis that they are going to do this even if they get and they are getting a signal from the United States not to do it.’

Krauthammer doubted Israel was factoring what impact a strike against Iran might have on upcoming U.S. presidential election.

‘No, I think the calculation is what Ignatius reported as Panetta said: The Israelis think that the problem is that Iran is about to enter the zone of immunity. And that means the trigger is not the assumption that Iran now has the know-how to make a bomb. That is later down the road. What comes earlier is when Iran has put enough uranium in completely untouchable, protected sites, like the mountain outside of Qom where you cannot touch it, meaning that at that point, Iran has the wherewithal, the facilities, the material that it can build a bomb unmolested, and then it can never be attacked again. If Israel thinks it is approaching the point of immunity, it will attack.'” Read more.

Incoming IAF chief Amir Eshel ‘will prepare perfect attack plan’ – “Hours after it was announced that Defense Minister Ehud Barak has approved IDF Chief of Staff Maj.-Gen. Benny Gantz’s decision to appoint Major-General Amir Eshel as the next IAF commander, colleagues congratulated the decision, saying he is the right man for the job. ‘He’ll put all the cards on the table – good or bad,’ said a senior officer that served with Eshel. Referring to the possibility that Eshel would be the one overseeing an IAF military strike on Iranian nuclear facilities, the officer said: ‘He’ll know how to prepare the forces in the most meticulous and perfect manner, and lay out all the possible scenarios and chances of success.'” Read more.

Netanyahu Says Only Military Strength Guarantees Security in Middle East – “Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who yesterday announced plans to visit the U.S. in March, said turmoil in neighboring Arab states and threats from Iran show that Israel must build up its military. ‘In such a region, the only thing that ensures our existence, security and prosperity is our strength,’ Netanyahu told his Cabinet in Jerusalem in remarks broadcast on Israel Radio. ‘We are obligated to continue to develop the military, economic and social strength of the state of Israel.’ Israeli leaders have been warning publicly that time is running out for a military strike that could stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons.” Read more.
