How Israel will attack Iran? Is it reality or imagination?

Pierluigi Paganini August 16, 2012

We have long discussed the possibility of an Israeli attack against Iran, security experts have long sought leave signs that presage an imminent attack trying to figure out how I can take it. We all know about the potential of Israeli military, a war machine that could scare the big of the planet and that is characterized by an impressive technological component. Israel has the most advanced cyber army and many experts believe that its intelligence is responsible for the creation of the most advanced cyber weapons. Due these considerations it is expected that in first phase of an offensive against the government of Teheran, Israel will conduct a cyber attack of impressive dimension with the intent to paralyze the country knock out internet, any kind of communications and other critical infrastructure. That is the new way to engage a war, using a cyber strategy to attack the enemy creating the conditions for a military conventional strike that could be advantaged by the chaos created.

One of the most popular blogger, Richard Silverstain, provides documents that demonstrate the imminent Israeli attack, describing tactics and strategy of the offensive.  The bloggers announced a wide cyber attacks against critical systems of Iran that will cause a global black out that make the country vulnerable to a subsequent military advance. The blogger suggests in a second phase a missile attack to destroy Iran’s defense explaining in detail what could be the sensitive targets, such as nuclear power plant in Arak or the facilities for production of nuclear fuel in Isfahan and the plant at Fordow. The documents also referred to the widespread use of technological tools such as satellite “Blue and White” radar satellite, whose systems enable us to perform an evaluation of the level of damage done to the various targets, will pass over Iran.

Only after rapidly decrypting the satellite’s data, will the information be transferred directly to war planes making their way covertly toward Iran. 
These IAF planes will be armed with electronic warfare gear previously unknown to the wider public, not even revealed to our U.S. ally.  This equipment will render Israeli aircraft invisible. 
Those Israeli war planes which participate in the attack will damage a short-list of targets which require further assault.

Among the targets approved for attack—Shihab 3 and Sejil ballistic missile silos, storage tanks for chemical components of rocket fuel, industrial facilities for producing missile control systems, centrifuge production plants and hundreds of missiles should be directed against sensitive targets. The documents will also speak of use of new electronic weapons whose existence “is not known even to our U.S. allies.” Another sign that portends an imminent attack is a declaration of Matan Vilnai, a former Israeli Defence Minister, claiming that Israel had “prepared as never before”.

“There is no room for hysteria,”

said the former general, who is stepping down at the end of August to become Israel’s ambassador to China. He echoed an assessment by Defence Minister Ehud Barak, who said that it was believed that some 500 people in Israel might be killed.

“There might be fewer dead, or more, perhaps… but this is the scenario for which we are preparing, in accordance with the best expert advice.” “The assessments are for a war that will last 30 days on several fronts,”

According to Vilnai any conflict could cause 500 deaths also does not rule out an attack against chemical and bacteriological Israel against which were placed the necessary security measures. About new technologies … alarms now also come via sms … meanwhile, the Army is testing a system to alert SMS to warn people in the event of missile attacks, what would happen if a cyber attack put out of order communications Israeli?

In a conflict there are too much variables that can influence the scenario, let’s think for example to the Iranian cyber capabilities that could surprise the world, is Israel ready to neutralize them?
