Some Israeli Analysts Thinking the Unthinkable

In line with this reporter's repeated warnings, some Israeli defense analysts are advocating preemptive nuclear missile strikes on Iranian nuclear and missile installations should last-ditch diplomacy fail to preserve the peace. The rationale for going nuclear grows stronger by the day, given Islamonazi Iran's nuclear gains (made possible by American appeasement) Iran's growing arsenal of long-range missiles capable of leveling Israeli population centers, and Iranian threats to annihilate the Jewish State.

It is important to recall that Israel nearly used nuclear weapons during the 1973 Yom Kippur War. Thirteen 20-kiloton nuclear weapons were assembled as Israel faced defeat following an effective Egyptian surprise attack and ahead of an astonishing Israeli counterattack spearheaded by the legendary Ariel ("Arik") Sharon.

It behooves China and Russia to support international efforts to end Iran's illicit nuclear arms program.
