If Iran resumes enrichment, the US and Israel poised to attack its facilities

 Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: If Europe fails to back Iran against the US, Tehran will resume uranium enrichment. He is asking for trouble. Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei tried Wednesday, May 23, to counter Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s ultimatum with one of his own for the European powers, the UK, France and Germany, which are trying to save the 2015 nuclear deal after the US walkout. The dictates he put before them included: European banks must safeguard trade with Iran and stop seeking new negotiations on Iran’s ballistic missile program and regional Middle East activities to gratify the US president. The Europeans must further guarantee Iran’s oil sales and compensate Tehran for losses incurred from US sanctions. If Europe fails to meet Khamenei’s demands, Iran will go back to enriching uranium, effectively turning its back on the 2015 nuclear deal, he warned.

This was Tehran’s first authoritative response to the Trump administration’s decision to withdraw from that deal and Pompeo’s threat of tough sanctions unless Tehran changed its ways. Iran’s leaders will not have forgotten that in late April, President Trump threatened “severe consequences” for their resumption of uranium enrichment and will have taken into account that these consequences could run to a US and/or Israel military strike on their enrichment facilities. Iran has accordingly accelerated the deployment of advanced Bavar-373 surface to air missile (SAM) defense systems around those facilities.
Iranian strategists are also aware that American and Israeli air force planes are armed with weapons capable of destroying the Bavar-373 batteries. On April 24, Israeli warplanes bombed those systems during an air strike on the Syrian army’s 47th Division’s weapons depots and command centers outside Homs. But the Iranian missiles had just been delivered and were still unpacked in crates and not operational.

Amid these beating war drums, Israel’s air force commander Maj. Gen. Amikam Nurkin showed the image of an F-35 stealth plane over Beirut to a meeting n Wednesday of 20 air force chiefs who are spending the week in Israel. He was conveying the message that if the F-35 stealth plane could reach the sky over Beirut, it was equally capable of flying over Tehran and reaching the Natanz enrichment center.

Israel is now back to square one, i.e. 2012, when Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Ehud Barak, then defense minister, and Eliezer Shekedi, air force chief at the time, had girded Israel up for an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities, only to be held back by the Obama administration’s push for nuclear negotiations with Tehran.

    This attack on iranian soil will not happen due to irans ability to strike US bases in the ME and its missiles to hit israel, this is a smoke screen threat, the real war will be against hizballah in lebanon.

        I think israel is wrong, if they attack iran they just give them the excuse to build the bomb.
        Another thing is last war between israel and hezballah showed israel doesnt have the guts of a massive ground attack, and iran has thousands shia militia already in syria alone. (And Lebanon)
        I don’t think trump decision about leaving nuclear accord was a good decision for america, they just hope economic pressure make a revolution in iran

      I don’t think it would work out quite that way.

      The response of the USA to an attack on our bases might not be very restrained. Even if the Iran is not generally devastated by such an attack, the regime of the Ayatollahs might be.

      Iran has some pretty significant problems in its economy and with a population which is increasingly disaffected with the regime. A serious attack by the USA could result in a pretty severe destabilization of the Iranian government and its collapse in the near-term. What would come after that I really don’t know, but with a whole bunch of Sunni governments nearby who have feared and hated Iran’s ayatollahs for years/decades it could end up being pretty horrible.

      The demands of the Iranian government upon the Europeans are actually pretty ridiculous. They give the feeling of desperation and bluster – and here is where the long-range Iranian missiles come into play.

      If the European governments think Iran can hit them with long-range missiles, they actually may be cowed. The USA and Israel will have different reactions from those of Europe because of current threats, financial ties, resource dependencies, military capabilities, and demographics.

      This is a very difficult time if you are trying to maintain the current Iranian regime. I’m not saying that the ayatollahs will not be able to maintain their dictatorship, but it is not all that clear that they will succeed.

      You do have a pretty good point about Hizballah. It looks like at least one governmental entity or another is destroying a lot of Iranian and Hizballah assets in Syria. I suspect Iranian assets are the priority but then they’ll increase the efforts to decrease the combat effectiveness of Hizballah units and then actually start destroying their assets and personnel.

      It is good to remember you are praying to the same G-d known as Jehovah first and Allah later as well. Sons and Daughters of Abraham and those of Ishmael and Issac have more in common than differences. Abraham came from Iraq and made a new Home in Canaan. G-d did so by following the Guidance from One G-d that taught turning Strangers into Friends so each Family makes Great Neighbors is the only way for Sons and Daughter to survive together. Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad have the same messages from the same G-d so your prayers apply to all People. Thank You!

    i like and enjoy politics very much, and the one disappointment i have with the west and their thinking, is simple. they cannot distinguish between friend and foe. one minute you are an enemy, and the next, their friend. when the nuclear deal was concluded, and iran received billions of dollars, the european countries were falling over themselves to do deals. hamas started the ‘march of return’ to harm israel, sending women and children to the front line, 60 people were killed, 50 of them hamas fighters, by their own admission, and yet the world, and esp. the eu condemned israel. the turkish president, called israel worse than the nazis, and he killed 1,000’s of armenians, syrians, kurds, and yahidis. not a word was uttered, but for israel, they are all calling for an investigation. who needs enemies, when you have such good friends. p.s. at the moment 10 of the worlds top countries sent their top air force people to israel, to learn the latest israeli tactics in using their air forces. long live israel.

    Europe should not be considered in the calculations. Europe and Obama refused to takw into consideration Israel’s security or the security of the world with respect to Islamic Iranian power and ability to conduct nuclear war. Europe will appease for contracrs. Europe will always side with whomever are against the Jewish people. Trump and Israel have Iran in a corner and now it is time to de- fang the Mullocracy and their nukes.

    Attack on nuclear sites does not necessarily start a war. Israel already is war and such an attack will be just another battle in the same war. Today , USA deals with nuclear capability of Iran using sanctions and diplomacy and Israel manages “traditional” war. Regrettably, such arrangement will hold only for the next 2 years, to the end of presidency of D. Trump. Next USA administration will be democratic and will return to Obama’s world agenda. Then Israel will have a serious problem, since Israel cannot defeat Iran. It can destroy its nuclear capability, even its missiles, but not its army and not its proxies in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Gaza. Not without help or at least support of EU and USA.

      The friend thing when the nuclear deal was concluded by liberals who want to believe that if you are nice to a muslim they will like you back and everybody can live happily ever after.
      These people obviously didn’t read the koran or otherwise do not understand that muslims only respect strength especially when you have your knife at their throat and further until that moment, they look upon you as filth.
      The europeans especially the germans are into that war never again thing and can’t understand why they should defend themselves as they are convinced no one will ever attack them, and further that the 1,000,000 unskilled muslim men just want to get along and not convert the german women to their hoes, slaves, and muslim baby makers and repopulate the whole country as a muslim country.

      That was the attitude of Obama, besides he is a muslim so what would you expect from one like him. Of course he will suck up to the iranians.

      Trump however, is a real American the liberal legacy is out the window. I think Trump has literally saved the western world or at least most of it.

      You can look for the Iranian nuke facilities to be destroyed if they do not de-nuclearize.

    Again, I really think that you guys are children. An Attack on Iran can only happen with Russian approval. the attacks on Syria were only allowed with Russian agreement. Ask yourself why? Russia can know and target any plane that leaves the ground In Israel or Saudi Arabia. If we use carriers he can target them as far as 3500 miles away. Think. the US has to gain Access to the Battlefield. Every thing that happens is what is best for Russia. The US influence in Europe declines. If Putin finds that an attack on a few Missile sights will help him with the Europeans that is what will happen. Israel cannot exist as a Jewish state under these conditions.

        Israeli aggression makes them look very bad.. We actually do not know if Iran ever fired twenty field rockets at them. The US could have given the Israeli’s their codes to fly into Syrian airspace. We have no idea what kind of damage that was really done. If Russia can make the Americans and the Israeli’s look ike the bad citizens then Russia moves closer to Europe and the US loses their influence in Europe Germany and French investments and the Russia economy grows and their is a reduced need for NATO. Now from a Military perspective there is no love loss between Israel and any Islamic country. There is actually another Player in this perhaps two Turkey and China. Turkey is more then likely to enter a war on the side of Iran. China could eliminate Guam and blockade any Carrier movement through the Southern Pacific Russia can control the Med The US forces in the Middle East and Israel would be Isolated The rocket barrage and man power from all of those countries would lead to either Israel going to Nukes or divine intervention by God.

      Oh, in response to a comment further up, I believe Netanyahu is definitely the right leader for Israel given current conditions.

      What you say is not quite true neither the US nor Israel would ever launch an attack that leaves them vulnerable to attack by any adversary. We are much too advanced for that. Further, the Russians do not have a capability of shooting down an air attack from 3,500 miles away.
      Further, neither the US nor Israel need Russian approval for an attack. They might notify Russia and tell them to stay out of the way and if they do and Russia interferes, Russia will not survive. They are not advanced enough to successfully counter our weapon systems.
      Lastly, Putin is not stupid enough to advance on Europe. That would be the end of Putin. However, Germany would not be in any condition to defend itself without extensive US assistance.

      The bottom line: Due to Obama’s weakness, Putin decided to interfere in the ME and did not expect Trump to be elected and when he was, further did not expect Trump to the strong President he is. Putin has more than met his match and he knows it. He is weak compared to the US. His mercenaries have been wiped out by US Marines, and it will happen again.

      Putin will not withstand the withering onslaught of the US and Israel, and the Saudis also. They support Israel. Israel’s biggest concern might be the missiles Hezbollah has in Lebanon and if I were them I’d start destroying them

    Iran is a backward 4th world $#1thole with no viable economy, and a military that may have been somewhat battle-ready … back in 1955. Infrastructure wise, Iran has only a few power plants, and a single egress for almost 100% of its hydrocarbon exports, the port of Kharg. Putting Iran out of business altogether would not present a huge strategic challenge. The Iranian leadership knows and understands this, but not being a rational actor, they behave like a cornered rat… with rabies. It needs to be put out.

    Any war is bloody on both sides, BUT be assured the Trump administration ain’t playin’. Russia cannot match our technical superiority now or decades from now. If this really came to blows between superpowers, the US would absolutely dominate, but, not without losses. How the American population would react to significant casualties is anyones guess, but I would believe, at this time, they would support it. Remember, in war time, is when you truly see America’s “secret” weapons. I suspect the Russians would back down (they are not naive) and if so, Iran has no chance whatsoever.

    I am European but I am aware that the EU is a bet, an invention that does not exist. We are neither a state nor a federation, we have a common currency, but in reality we are many small countries that need to be a single entity to count for something. At the minimum problem everyone does on his own, probably when we are attacked from outside Russia (already happened in Crimea) or from inside by the Muslims we will understand who the real allies are, it is significant that the countries that were under the Soviet bloc or those on the border are the most determined to contract Putin but the majority does not realize what aggressions we suffer, and in Italy came to power Putin’s friends who want to remove the sanctions. For now, in general, Europeans think they are “superior” this old continent falls apart unfortunately and does not count a pipe. If I were coherent and a little younger, I would go to Israel, which is a country that guarantees to everyone that it is independent of race and religion to be citizens. Someone is excluded as terrorists, but here in Europe they do not understand it and they give it money too. God bless US Israel and their democracy 🙂

    The Mullahs are stuck between a rock and the edge of cliff. The embarrassment of Israeli strikes pounding and wiping out Iranian positions in quick succession in Syria is a pre-cursor to the analysation of Iranian Gulf oil refineries, the bandar bushehr reactor, and all the underground nuke facilities. It’s only a matter of time for a future escalation from Lebanon or Syria for the IDF to go directly to the cancer and wipe it out for good!
