  1. Richard:

    Good post. Many years ago Patrick Clawson of the WINEP advocated exactly the same type of operations against the Natanz facility. He claimed that if the centrifuges that are spinning with gaseous hexafluride are damaged, it will not hurt the civilians, an utter nonsense.

    1. Not to be an ass, are you aware of the “Website” editbox? I’ve noticed you manually add a link to your blog in every single one of your comments.

      As for Stuxnet – There’s more speculation than facts. It’s very interesting nonetheless.

    Thanks, Shai and Richard for the advice on the website box/URL field. I hadn’t realised that option was available. No more ‘blatant self-promotion.’

    I ‘d like to pose a question.

    Given commonly held expectations, how would you evaluate the Israel – Palestinian situation as it might appear ten years from now?

    Settled, still in dispute, marginally better or worse than ever?

    Today, after sixty years and more of trial and error, that choice, most likely, would still be the last one; the ongoing efforts of Messrs. Obama, Clinton, Mitchell, Abbas, Netanyahu notwithstanding.

    Why should this be so?
    Sixty years is a long time and yet the dispute seems as firmly entrenched as ever. Either the bulk of a multitude of discussions, meetings, summits and all attempts to rectify the matter have counted for nothing or the subject has become so complex, so out of control that it defies all logic and reasoned argument to remedy it.

    Our options may have become too limited by the inherent nature of the conflict ; its deadlocked protagonists, its tragic history, its uncertain future.

    What is needed now is a specific direction, some clear path to follow. If this is not forthcoming, then, in ten years time, it may very well be too late to salvage anything. Or anybody.

    ‘Pull if it does not work when you push.’ Japanese proverb.

    1. Because the Iranians will only ever be a few steps behind in the Virtual War.
      Israel wishes Iran (and any other group that opposes it in any way) to be several centuries behind in development.

      The real attack IS coming, you just have to be a little more patient.
      The ‘phoney war” has already begun, in the form of multile sanctions, and like with Iraq, the list of victims will envelope the innocent and stretch on for a decade.
