    If Saudis open their airspace, Israeli jets can be refueled in the air. Other option would be American airbases located in Kuwait and Qatar. Of course, even if Israel convince "all those arabs" there will be another obstacle called obama. Maybe it's time to build an aircraft carrier.

    If Israel built an aircraft carrier, the only effective place to station it would be in the Indian Ocean, given the geography of the region.

    Sorry guys but building an aircraft carrier isn't like building a set of Ikea shelves. There is no quick assembly and unlike automobiles you don't walk into a showroom and say "I'll take that one" then within a couple of hours drive it home. Five years would be a very quick delivery unless Israel decided to go Chinese and in that case it would start off as a ship and finish up as a submarine.

    Exactly right, Farmboy. It takes almost five years to build and aircraft carrier. Israel does not have that kind of time.

    See? I was right. It finished up as a submarine.
    Fortunately not Chinese.

    'US operated deep in Iran, trained assassins'

    Very interesting article, click on the link and check out the whole thing.

    didn't read the whole thread, so I don't know if this option was already brought up.
    However, what about a commando operation?
    First, you send Mossad operators to prepare the ground - gather the info, prepare safe houses, receive equipment that can be prepared in advance, etc.
    depending on the timeframe (some operators could be sent years in advance) the operators could infiltrate the targets as hired personnel.
    then you can drop the commando units, incl' explosive experts and everyone else needed. If the preparation was correct, this can also take several months, let the soldiers really prepare and know their targets well.

    then you can execute the operation - either as a strike, or long term series of small-scale operations (guerrilla-like warfare) - perhaps with aid of local opposition.

    combine that with digital warfare that we've seen (stuxnet) and you can significantly slow down Iranian progress and give the diplomatic option more leeway.

    Re: Israeli options against Iran et. al.

    From Haaretz, no less:

    New intelligence information obtained by Israel and four Western countries indicates that Iran has made greater progress on developing components for its nuclear weapons program than the West had previously realized, according to Western diplomats and Israeli officials who are closely involved in efforts to prevent Iran from building a nuclear bomb...

    'Israel could send Iran back to Stone Age'

    Sunday Times quotes defense experts as saying that Jewish state could cripple Islamic Republic's power grid with electromagnetic pulses

    Ynet
    Published: 09.09.12, 08:27 / Israel News

    British newspaper Sunday Times has exposed one of the "surprises" the Israel Defense Forces has in store in case of a military strike in Iran.

    According to the Sunday morning report, the Jewish state could cripple the Islamic Republic's power grid with electromagnetic pulses as part of a concerted attack to halt Iran's military nuclear program, which could "send Iran back to the Stone Age."

    This is most likely just more psy-ops but it could be a possibility...
