Israel Preparing Strike on Iran

Things like this get reported all the time -- but for what it's worth:

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) has been training on long-range flights, including refueling in mid-flight, in preparation for potential strikes against Iranian nuclear targets.

The training program has been taking place for some time but has only been released for publication Friday, the Ma'ariv daily reported.

Intelligence assessments received by the defense establishment concur that once Iran passes the point of no return in its nuclear efforts, the entire Middle East will enter a frantic nuclear armament race. Egypt and Saudi Arabia are expected to take the lead should such a scenario become reality.

This story doesn't surprise me. Considering the situation that Israel is stuck in, the IAF would have to be run by absolute morons to not have these kind of contingency plans in place...
