Concern about an Isreali strike against Iran's Nuclear facilities
Many people are showing concern about an Isreali strike against Iran's Nuclear facilities.
There's a couple of things that make it likely it won't happen. First the Isreali Air Force fighter bombers (FBs), even with drop tanks, don't have the range to strike Iran and get back. They would either need to be re-fueled in the air ... or it's a one way trip, and Isreal doesn't have re-fueling capability, that we know of, at this time. So, the Isreali FBs would have to be re-fueled by someone who does have re-fueling capability and is already in the area of the operation (hint: USAF). So, the Isreali operation, puportedly a dry run attack scenario, was probably a re-fueling familiarization scenario.
Second, crossing someone elses' airspace (Syria backed Iran in the Iraq-Iran War) would risk providing an early warning to Iran, burning up more fuel and losing FBs to air defenses if those countries strongly object to Isreal crossing their airspace.
The kicker in all of this is that, many Arab countries have reasonable fears that a nuclear armed Iran will use those weapons on Isreal and that Isreal would certainly retaliate. As few as 6 nuclear blasts in the atmosphere, could put enough material into the atmosphere to spread around the globe by the jet stream, would cause a nuclear winter. You'd still be able to see the sun, but with 5.7 billion people on this planet, I would not want to be the guy telling people we can't grow food and we only have enough food to feed 1 to 1.5 billion people. So, the Arab countries may, in secret, allow Isreal to cross their airspace while publically ranting and railing the Isrealis did; in effect, the lesser of two evils choice.
So, we really all need to think of what our differences are, work our differences out without conflict, be a little more respectful, a little more tolerant, and try to get along. Do we always want our final choice to be the "lesser of two evils" choice?
