Saudi and US support of Israel would make multiple strikes on Iran Nuclear facilities feasible

The Iranian nuclear program is spread across dozens of sites over an area that is bigger than France, Germany and Spain combined and located 1,000 miles away from Israel. Israel could and did use military strikes to take single facilities in Syria and Iraq to delay their nuclear programs.

An effective Israeli attack would require repeated waves of air strikes over several to many days.

Ilan Jonas, chief executive of Prime Source, a Tel Aviv-based political risk consultancy, and was chief of staff to former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni provided an analysis to Bloomberg that it is more feasible for Israel to seriously set back Iran’s nuclear program.

Israeli strike would have included not only in a long war with Hezbollah but also in strong diplomatic condemnations.

Israel now has effective anti-missile systems.

Saudi Arabia and US support would be key

Saudi Arabia would give a green light for Israeli warplanes to pass through its airspace, or that Israeli air tankers would be allowed to hover over the Arabian Peninsula in order to refuel IAF jets.

The Saudis (and potentially other Gulf countries) might allow Israeli warplanes targeting Iranian nuclear targets to take off and land at Gulf Cooperation Council air bases.

This would cut the distance to striking Iran down by 500 to 700 miles.

This would be a game changer in terms of the Israeli air force’s ability to effectively destroy Iran’s dozens of nuclear facilities.

The Trump administration — unlike the Obama White House — is likely to agree to provide Israel with “bunker-buster” bombs that would be essential to destroy key elements of the Iranian nuclear program, specifically the Fordow enrichment facility, which is buried in a mountain tens of meters underground.

Below is where US bases are in middle eastern countries adjacent to Iran.

  1. If the leadership cast in Israel was smart they would keep their heads down and their military capabilities to themselves … until they really need to strike.

  3. The Americans should get out of Afghanistan before they start any more wars in the region. They’re having enough trouble there without giving Iran cause to get involved.

  5. Are elections around the corner again? In Israel? Sabre rattling again? This is becoming boring and predictable. Israel will strike, Israel will bomb Iranian nuclear facilities, Israel is militarily strong bla bla bla. But nothing happens. Someone is making money out of this. The Bunker Buster bombmakers certainly will make a ton of cash.

  8. What would be the point. They can rebuild it and would launch a counter strike on Arab oil refiners causing a $250 per barrel oil and global recession. Plus Fordow is 60 meters deep. You need a B2 and the MOAP to get that, if its possible. The actual goal of a “targeted air strike” is to draw the US into a regime change invasion like Iraq. Its to backslide the US into a war IMO. The Israelis use boast of this tactic all the time.

  13. I suspect the idea of simple kinetic actions was discarded a long time ago. Isreal has demonstrated repeatedly the ability to work and move inside Iran, assassinating nuclear scientists, discovering and stealing the archived documentation of the nuclear program and using cyberwar to make hash of Iranian nuclear enrichment programs. Now imagine Iran’s banking system goes down, or all the traffic lights in Tehran are scrambled at rush hour, or the oil terminal software gets corrupted. Coupled with massive increases in oil output by Saudi Arabia and America, targeted sanctions and economic activities to cripple foreign earnings and a concerted effort to cause Iran to expend more resources in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon and you have a perfect storm to promote and encourage the uprising of the Iranian people against the theocracy. Targeted messaging to the Iranian Kurds and Baloch people’s against the theocracy would compound the regimes problems to no end. The last phase might be using IDF assets to suppress the IRGC and Basji to prevent them attacking the people. So there are plenty of ways to do the job without waves of airstrikes directed against Iran initially

  14. Trump has been a big boost to the mullahs. He ‘prooved’ that the ‘Great Satan’ can’t be trusted & set back moves to a less theocratic Iran. Trump has been a big boost to the US theocrats too.
