Berlusconi Insisted Obama Couldn’t Stop Preemptive Nuking

by Jason Ditz, December 12, 2010

In a meeting with Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi warned that he believed “no one including Obama” could stop Israel from launching an attack against Israel once it had made up its mind.

Berlusconi, who has publicly said previously that he absolutely believes Israel will ultimately attack Iran, was revealed in the new comments, part of a WikiLeaks cable, to be concerned that Israel was planning to use nuclear weapons in the attack.

Though it continues to officially take a position of “ambiguity,” Israel has a large nuclear weapons arsenal and is indeed the only nuclear weapons power in the Middle East. Israeli officials have repeatedly threatened to attack Iran over its civilian nuclear program, claiming it constitutes an “existential” threat.

Berlusconi was said to have been briefed about a 2008 Israeli Air Force exercise in which warplanes flew a mock bombing run over Greece, apparently an attempt to simulate a flight to and attack against Iran. Others, including Australia’s intelligence community, have expressed similar concerns about the possible attack recently.

  1. WITH THE RUSSIANS READY TO SUPPORT THE WESTERN ALLOANCES IN THIS QUEST TO STOP IRANIAN AGGRESSIONS THE SETUP OF RUSSIAN FORCES IN THE BLACK SEA MAY TURN OUT TO BE THE AID NECESSARY FOR ISRAEL TO GET THIS JOB DONE TOO. THE U.S. AND OUR MUSLIM ALLIES MAY WELL BE INTERESTED IN SEEING THIS TAKE PLACE AS WELL WITH ALL THE ACTIVITIES GOING ON AFTER THE WIKILEAKS WERE RELEASED AS WELL. THERE MAY NOW BE SUCH A PLAN AND PLENTY OF SUPPORT FOR A JOINT OPERATION OR A DIRECT ISRAELI ATTACK WITHH PROTECTIONS AT LARGE PART FROM THE WESTERN ALLIANCES AND RUSSIAN SUPPORT AS WELL CAUSING SYRIA TO SIDEOUT ON ANY ACTION TO PROTECT IRAN AT ALL.!ADDED PROTECTION AT THE RIGHT TIME WILL REDUCE CIVILIAN CASUALTIES TOO.
