Israeli War Games Simulate Strike on Iran

A massive war game simulation by the Institute for National Security Studies of the IDF’s engagement after a strike on Iran recently took place, illustrating Israel’s increasing preparedness for putting a military end to the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.

The drill played out a unilateral Israeli strike on Iran after midnight on November 9, without US participation.

In the simulation, Al-Jazeera reported four massive and successful assaults on Iranian nuclear sites.  Iran responded by firing 200 Shihab missiles at Israel and calling on Hizbullah and Hamas to attack Israel.

The game determined that it would be difficult for Israel to reach a diplomatic solution following a military exchange between the countries, especially given Russia’s interest in using such a situation for its own strategic advantage.

In the scenario, the US would side with Israel but stay out of warfare, attempting to broker peace through a lessening of sanctions.

As for Hizbullah, Tehran would declare Israel’s act “judgement day” – the entire purpose of the armament of Hizbullah.

Israelis would endure the conflict, surviving on a mix of relief over the success of the missions and a belief that their cause was justified.

The INSS concluded that either a major regional war would take place after an Israeli attack on Iran, or Iran would be restricted in its movements, and unable to start a serious conflict.

    In Ukraine they are finishing counting their vote while opposition is correctly claiming a fraud. The kind and cause of this fraud can be better understood looking on century old case of Sigismund von Unruh.

    While both Israeli and American nations are still before the vote. Sigismund case has again returned to the streets of Brussels , heart of Europe.

    But for Zion at the East things on the street and in governmental cabinets are quite same. We are easily kicked out, when Israel turns hostile trying to commit national suicide. Something that EU shall and must be preventing. Even if our friends are not able to understand this…
