Iran Attack : Israel's Recent Ominous Rehearsals Revealed ...

'Strewth in heffin !!

What a barmy bleeding way to run a bloody world.

We wish we'd stayed safely secreted (sorta), away where we were leading a peaceful, worry free, effing media-less life.

Of course, it would not nor will not make the slightest difference to what will or will not be. That much, we learned a long time ago but, it sure as hell would still be working wonders for our blood pressure.

Israelis 'rehearse Iran attack'

More than 100 Israeli F16 and F15 jets were involved in the exercise

Israel has carried out an exercise that appears to have been a rehearsal for an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities, US officials have told the New York Times.

More than 100 Israeli fighter jets took part in manoeuvres over the eastern Mediterranean and over Greece in the first week of June, US officials said.

Iran insists its programme is peaceful, but Israel sees Iran's development of the technology as a serious threat.



Several US officials briefing the New York Times said the exercise was intended to demonstrate the seriousness of Israel's concern over Iran's nuclear activities, and its willingness to act unilaterally.

"They wanted us to know, they wanted the Europeans to know, and they wanted the Iranians to know," a Pentagon official is quoted as saying by the newspaper.

"There's a lot of signalling going on at different levels."
