What If Iran Conducts an Attack on Israel First?

Interesting question. It seems all the countries involved in this game over Iran's nuclear weapons program are blustering their way in the press. There is a lot of discussion within Israel itself and a recent poll noted that most Israelis are concerned about Iran's quest for the nuclear bomb and also the day after an attack by Israeli jets on those facilities. The day after meaning, Iran's retaliation. They fear that they, Israel, is being surrounded and ganged up on by Iran and their proxies in Lebanon and Gaza. Hezbollah in Lebanon has 60,000 rockets it is estimated. Hamas, at least the radical faction, as a similar amount hidden. Iran would use its long range missiles to shatter Israeli peace and then add to this, the rockets that hezbollah and hamas have and you can see the concern. The public in Israel should be concerned, not all are for the Israeli attack just for the "day after" reasons. They are not sure that Israel could thwart all of the enemies-think Hezbollah (which has three trained brigades) invading Northern Israel as Hamas does it from Gaza while missiles are falling on Israel's towns and cities.

The bible called it Armageddon. One can see this unfold. One can see how nations of the world are drawn into the conflict. One can see how the sides would set up. Russia and China nod towards the Iranian interests out of economics.

Already, Iran has stated it is planning a preemptive attack on Israel to prevent Israel from attacking their nuclear weapon sites. This would not be hard at all to do for the reasons stated earlier. Hit Israel first, cause panic and chaos. Hit their airfields with total surprise and Israeli planes will not be visiting Iran, American, yes, but not Israeli. Create a panic in the population as Hezbollah occupies parts of northern Israel and Hamas infiltrates from Gaza. You have a recipe for Israel to use its nuclear bombs in order to save their society.

Yes, Israel would not think twice about using their nuclear bombs to save themselves. There you have a localized Armageddon in the Middle East. I think we are that close.

It will NEVER happen! Where would be their interest? To be seen as terrorists in the international stage? To have the world against them? To be attacked by the major military forces?

If you think rationally, you will say NEVER. When you weigh the pros and the cons, you will say NEVER! When you speculate on having more readers, on fueling passionate anti-Iranian topics... you will say "never say never" to bait the first fish that will bite it!

Israel MIGHT use a nuke if the government honestly believes it is the only way to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuke. The reprecussions would be considerable, as you've pointed out, but again,if Israel feels itself backed into a corner, the use of a nuke is a real possibility; better to take a battering now with your enemies using conventional weapons than to wait first for Iran to obatin a nuke.

If Iran attacked first, some would say it is justifiable. Why some feel like the scenario is out of the question is beyond me. It is probable should things continue to worsen.

I so hope you are wrong. I can't really argue it though for if one is at the end of one's rope, one does what one must. The only part of this I can argue is the following..."There you have a localized Armageddon in the Middle East." I don't think it will be localized. At least I don't think it would be for long. The world is ripe for just such chaos as would ensue. God help us all.

I really don’t understand the fact why Israel is always threatened. I honestly don’t no please enlighten me, perhaps could it be to eliminate another Middle Eastern country that may too pose military capabilities. Israel should think through before it does anything, going to war with Iran will just add wood to the fire. The last thing we need is another war in the Middle East.

Well, the history since 1948 in this part of world is akin to a white rich kid moving to the non-white ghetto. Except, here, it is Jew and Arabs over the area called Israel. Israel is surrounded by less than friendly arabs, now toss Iran into the mix. Paranoia lives well.

I think before anything happens you'll see military intervention in Syria which could just be an excuse for Iran or Israel for that matter to do something.
