    Tin helmet's anyone?

    Israel arms up for a possible strike in Iran ( If no Iran ,no Hamas, no Hezbullah and no Houthis, if no Israel 'schoite happens! )

    https://www.ynetnews.com/article/bjwddbutf

    Analysis: Jerusalem has spent billions preparing for an attack in Iran, stocking up on Iron Dome missiles, advanced precision weapons and hosting a bunch of drills in all frontiers; Hezbollah would most likely join the campaign but it remains unclear to what extent.

    Israel is very pessimistic regarding the nuclear talks between Iran and world powers in Vienna which were renewed this week, and an official document shows the country is preparing to spend some five billion shekels on weaponry.
    Jerusalem, as well as the IDF, are seriously preparing for the possibility that Israel will be left alone in the face of the Iranian nuclear threat. The possible strike in Iran seems closer than ever, although there is still time, and military and diplomatic limitations to overcome.

    Nevertheless, the Israel Defense Force prepares for the possible strike, mostly by training the Israeli Air Force (IAF) and intelligence gathering. However, it turns out that the ministerial committee in charge of military equipment, convened Sunday, and confirmed, along with Defense Minister Benny Gantz, the acquisition of 12 new CH-53K King Stallion helicopters, and additional stock of missiles for the Iron Dome.
    The Americans also approved Israel's request for purchasing classified bombs and precision weapons for the IAF a few months ago at an estimated cost of one billion dollars. And according to an official document, classified as "top secret", the total cost of these purchases is estimated at around five billion shekels.

    However, the United States withdrew from the nuclear agreement in 2018, and that begs the question, why Israel didn't prepare for the attack back then in order to show the seriousness of the issue and to make it clear that a military option is on the table?

    In such an event, there are two key questions: whether the Americans will join the attack or not, or will they back Israel, by providing security assistance during the strike and after. Regarding the first option, in light of the Biden administration's policy in the region, the likelihood of cooperation is lower than before. But, for support, at this point, the estimations are positive, especially if it would be clear beyond any doubt that the Iranians led to a point in which Israel had no other choice.
    Another main question is whether Hezbollah will join the campaign against Israel, and if so, in what way. In the past, the answer was unequivocal, yes, and with everything they got, because that's the reason the Iranians invested some one billion dollars a year in an organization that holds the capabilities of a military.

    However, Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah no longer sees himself as an Iranian proxy but an almost equal regional leader. He is more occupied by Lebanon's crisis along with fights over control.
    These reasons make Israel believe that he won't rush into such war, in which even if he causes significant damage to the Jewish state, he would have to sacrifice both Lebanon and Hezbollah, because Israel won't respond carefully anymore, it will use its full force against him.

    The possible war raises a dilemma, among both political and security officials, about how to broker the issue to the public, particularly about the possible damage that would be caused by a total of some 2,500 rockets fired towards Israel per day.

    IDF officials estimate that Hezbollah will most likely join the campaign after the strike in Iran but they can't determine the intensity of their retaliation. As a result, Israel buys more Iron Dome missiles, which raises further criticism on why this wasn't done before and as a result, the "National Air Defense" plan - deployment of Iron Dome batteries throughout the country - would be already finished.

    I think the timing of this is telling, probably to encourage the Mad Mullahs to be a bit more accommodating at the negotiating table. The Israelis tend not to feck about, but I would imagine a strike on Iran's nuclear capability is still quite a long way off.

    Who knows what will happen? But if the Iranians are taken down a step or two. Hamas and Hebullah, plus the Houthis in Yemen, will not have support and CASH. Then Peace in the Middle east !
