The Art of War 

Israel, 200 nuclear weapons targeted on Iran 

Manlio Dinucci 

The decision by the United States to exit the Iranian nuclear agreement - signed in 2015 by Teheran with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany - causes a situation of extreme danger, and not only in the Middle East.

To understand the implications of such a decision, taken under pressure by Israel, which describes the agreement as "the surrender of the West to the Axis of Evil led by Iran", we have to begin by stating a specific fact -  Israel has the Bomb, Iran does not.

For over fifty years, Israel has been producing nuclear weapons at the Dimona plant, built with the help mainly of France and the United States. It is not subject to inspections because Israel, the only nuclear power in the Middle East, does not adhere to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which Iran signed fifty years ago.

The proof that Israel produces nuclear weapons was revealed more than thirty years ago by Mordechai Vanunu, who had worked in the Dimona plant. The evidence was published by The Sunday Times on October 5, 1986, after being screened by leading nuclear weapons experts. Vanunu, kidnapped by the Mossad in Rome and transported to Israel, was sentenced to 18 years of hard jail time and, after being released in 2004, subject to severe restrictions.

Although it will not admit it, Israel is today in possession of an arsenal estimated at 100-400 nuclear weapons, including new generation mini-nukes and neutron bombs, and produces plutonium and tritium in such quantities sufficient to build hundreds more.

The Israeli nuclear warheads are ready to be launched on ballistic missiles, such as the Jericho 3, and on F-15 and F-16 fighter bombers supplied by the USA, to which F-35's are now added.

As confirmed by numerous IAEA inspections, Iran has no nuclear weapons and has committed  not to produce them, according to the agreement, which remains under strict international control.

However - writes former US Secretary of State Colin Powell on March 3, in an email that has recently come to light - "the boys in Teheran know that Israel has 200 nuclear weapons, all targeted on Teheran, and we have thousands”.

US European allies, which formally continue to support the agreement with Iran, are basically aligned with Israel. Germany supplied Israel with six Dolphin submarines, modified so as to launch nuclear cruise missiles, and approved the supply of three more. 

Germany, France, Italy, Greece and Poland participated, with the USA, in Blue Flag 2017, the largest international aerial warfare exercise in Israel’s history. Italy, linked to Israel by a military cooperation agreement (Law No. 94, 2005), participated in the exercise with Tornado fighters of the 6th Ghedi Wing, assigned to carry US B-61 nuclear bombs (which will soon be replaced by B61-12). The US participated with F-16 fighters of the 31st Fighter Wing of Aviano, assigned to the same function.

Israeli nuclear forces are integrated into the NATO electronic system, within the framework of the "Individual Cooperation Program" with Israel, a country which, although not a member of the Alliance, has a permanent mission at NATO headquarters in Brussels.

According to the plan tested in the US-Israel Juniper Cobra 2018 exercise, US and NATO forces would come from Europe (especially from the bases in Italy) to support Israel in a war against Iran. It could start with an Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear facilities, like the one carried out in 1981 on Osiraq nuclear reactor in Iraq. In the event of Iranian retaliation, Israel could use nuclear weapons,  starting a chain reaction with unpredictable outcomes.
