It has been confirmed that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and his allies among the country’s top political leaders, wanted to attack Iran at least three times in just the past few years.
Netanyahu’s former Defence Minister Ehud Barak has revealed that both the current leader, and himself, wanted to attack Iranian nuclear facilities in 2010, 2011 and 2012.
It was top-brass in the Israeli military that fought back against the proposal in 2010, highlighting the fact that they lacked the ‘operational capability’ to attack Iran alone.
In order to overcome such a problem, Barak openly admits that the Israeli political leadership ‘intended to carry out’ an attack in 2012 to coincide with a joint military drill that Israel was conducting with the United States.
Drills are widely considered to be the means by which rogue networks within governments conduct nefarious activities, a thesis which has now been explicitly confirmed by a former political insider.
Ultimately, the potential for the U.S. to ‘object’ to assisting the Israelis, despite their proximity to the potential conflict, was considered too great of a concern. Barak stated that ‘you can’t go in the opposite direction and force America’ to get involved.
This story highlights the necessity to: identify particular forces within governments responsible for particular decisions, continue the exposure of the usage of drills by rogue elements within a government, and, consider the world altering ramifications of such warmongering
