Israel Conducts Air Strike On Sudan Missile Base In 'Dry Run' For Iran Attack

Tyler Durden's picture





 

This past Wednesday, nobody reported that a squadron of 8 Israeli F-15 jets dropped 4 two-ton bombs on the giant Yarmouk missile factory on the outskirts of Sudan's capital Khartoum. Which is just as Israel wanted it. Because what otherwise would be a provocative incursion tantamount to war (if only Sudan wasn't a complete basket case of a country), was really nothing short of a dry-run for an Israeli attack on Iran. At least according to the Sunday Times. "A long-range Israeli bombing raid last week that was seen as a dry run for a forthcoming attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities has destroyed an Iranian-run plant making rockets and ballistic missiles in Sudan.... The raid, in which two people died, triggered panic across the city. Witnesses said they heard a series of loud blasts followed by the sound of ammunition exploding. “It was a double impact — the explosion at the factory and then the ammunition flying into the neighbourhood,” said Abd-al Ghadir Mohammed, 31, a resident. "The ground shook. Some homes were badly damaged." And... nobody cares. Here we leave it up to readers to imagine the epic horror, deep revulsion that would greet news that Iran had conducted a pre-emptive strike against Israel by blowing up a missile factory in Turkey, killing two innocent people, just to make sure it can.

A visual summary of the attack:

This is what was left of the Somali factory after the Israeli self-appointed (because national borders are for chumps) punishment force was done with it:

And the full post-mortem of the operation that took place 4 days ago, via Voice of Russia:

The attack occurred in the early morning of October 24, when eight Israeli F-15I jets – four of them carrying two one-ton bombs, escorted by four fighters – struck a gigantic Yamrouk missile site. The evidence is that this strike is a general rehearsal before the Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear facilities.

 

According to western defense sources, the 2,400-mile return flight took the Israelis four hours, with the jets flying south along the Red Sea. The planes entered the Sudanese air space from the east to avoid Egypt’s missile defenses.

 

The anti-Iranian operation kicked off two years ago when Mossad agents murdered a Palestinian businessman and a HAMAS highflyer, Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh, in a Dubai hotel suit, retrieving a suitcase with a military agreement between Iran and Sudan, wherein Khartoum offered Tehran its military sites to make weapons.

 

The Yamrouk facility produced Shahab ballistic missiles, which were then to be delivered to HAMAS rebels in the Gaza strip and other Middle Eastern regions.

In other words: add the Israeli invasion of Iran on the "To Do" list, alongside Grexit, the official Spanish bailout request, the Chinese Congress, the Japan-China territorial re-escalation, sliding down the Fiscal Cliff, and the debt ceiling breach, as soon as possible after the November 6 election.

And all that, of course, assuming Sky Net does not finally take over tomorrow when only robots will be left trading.

Found this on a website: "Remote U.S. base at core of secret operations" (Go to Page 3)

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/remote-us-base-at-...

 

"As the pace of drone operations has intensified in Djibouti, Air Force mechanics have reported mysterious incidents in which the airborne robots went haywire.

In March 2011, a Predator parked at the camp started its engine without any human direction, even though the ignition had been turned off and the fuel lines closed. Technicians concluded that a software bug had infected the “brains” of the drone, but never pinpointed the problem.

“After that whole starting-itself incident, we were fairly wary of the aircraft and watched it pretty closely,” an unnamed Air Force squadron commander testified to an investigative board, according to a transcript. “Right now, I still think the software is not good.”"

That's an outright lie. Females do not perform combat roles in the IDF. In fact, it is the Israelies who established conclusively that having females fighting on the front lines has a detriminental effect on the combat effectiveness of a military. If you want to talk about liberal arts majors, 'gender equality' in the military is not taken seriosuly by anyone but rabid feminists.

Recall that it is the strongest power within Lebanon, a country griped in constant civil conflict.

Yet, hezbollah lost half of its standing army (except that when they are killed they *become* civilians).

hezbollah's own internal reports, which were leaked eventually admited to these heavy casualties.

 

That being said, Israel did not ace that conflict. I wonder if they admit to that...

We're paying them off instead of having to go to the barely greater trouble of kicking their asses.  Arab armies always get laminated by western ones in classic army to army combat.  The rout would be so horrific, whether we did it or the IDF did, that we'll pay a lot not to see that happen, year after year.   Really, it would be gruesome fish in a barrel stuff that would make us sick at our stomach. like the highway of death back scenery from Operation Desert Storm.  

At some point there will be a conflict though.   The Egyptian public is stark raving bonkers, or 90% are in any case, with the batshit insane tinfoil stuff they believe about Israel and jews, and the importance of their women not having a clit, and often signficant section of their labia either.   The Egyptians WILL have a worse future than their already very bad present, because of their demographics, their insanity and lack of ability to produce anything anyone outside the country wants, Nile archeological cruises aside.   The blame for their troubles will continue to be put on Israel.  Already is put on Israel.   Whoever runs the joint in the future will try to deflect public rage at famine, disease, etc against Israel.    An asskicking will happen, must happen, at some points.

Utter rot. Even primitive tribesmen living in neolithic conditions have vocabularies that exceed a thousand words. But then you merely display your own prejudices and racism by implication with your denigration of the 'primitve' and exhultation of 'civilisation'. Your 'dark ages' is another complete and utter fabrication no longer taken seriously by any Medievalist or student of Late Antiquity, first spun by the Hellenophiles of the Renaissance no less, who mocked the exquisite artistic ahievements of the Germanic Middle Ages as the work of barbarians because it didn't conform to classical prejudices which bordered on religious fanaticism. So they became the saviours of 'civilisation' by defining juist what and was not 'civilised'.The rest is, as they say, history. Go fuck yourself with Orientalist dildo.

The money paid to Egypt is in fact money paid to Israel (indirectly though), for two reasons (at least till the "Arab spring"): on one hand, a kind of protection fee (lesser of the two intents) and on the other hand to prop the pro-zionist Egyptian regime (hence the Israel cries when Mubarak got ousted). After the Arab spring only the first reason remains valid, but still in Israel's favor (to seal the border with Gaza, else Israel blockade is pointless).

Yes they have a handful of tankers.  I recall reading that they also have only about 25 F15-I's that can carry the heavy bombs needed to destroy underground bunkers that house Iranian nuclear facilities.

Bombing Sudan, which has no air defenses, would be relatively easy for Israel.  Iran would be several orders of magnitude more difficult.

It's the new normal, bombing another nation no longer constitutes an act of war. Hell we do it all the time...we're currently bombing 6 (known) nations right now with no declaration of war.

Though it is amazing that NO media have picked this one up.

Just wait until the other side gets drones. They can start "pre-crime" bombing of people they don't like in places like Tampa, Portland, NYC, and the US won't be able to say a thing about it: we set the precedent.

Give me a fucking break. Why in world does Iran need Sudan to make their ballistic missiles? Why did not Iranians go to Somalia to design and manufacturing their future nukes?

 

One thing is for sure: for NATO countries and Israel, wars of aggression became absolutely necessary means to sustain their geopolitical existence.

 

However, there are very few "no shot back" countries left. Major direct economic and military confrontation with China and its allies will take place in a very near future.

 

One thing more, poorly going wars of aggression bring major civil unrests and even revolutions in home-countries. Very shortly, there will be a major split, dissent, and infighting among the American ruling elite.  In other words, political instability comes to America followed by a major depression and civil unrest.

 

Just wait and see how Israel population will enjoy seeing their own cities and town looking like Arab countries they terrorised for so many years.

Actually this was well-covered on Al Jazeera news several days ago, and I have posted the link on ZeroHedge comment sections several times ...

Al Jazeera is not 'nobody', they are one of the leading news services of the world (tho corrupted recently by the political agenda of Gulf States re the events in Syria, they are based in Qatar ... but who isn't under some influence

For international news one has to look beyond CNN and BBC and Reuters and Bloomberg ...

Every day ZeroHedge should glance at RT - Russia Today, Al Jazeera, and Asia Times Online (weekdays) ... the front page of Al Jazeera is very nicely done, too

Here is the article which I linked on ZH several days ago:

http://www.aljazeera.com/news/africa/2012/10/20121024142531802810.html

Interesting perspective on war expanding from Sudan from a wild, often-scorned Irish website ... suggesting the new war in the Middle East will be Egypt on the territory of Libya, Sudan, Ethiopia ...

The Egypt-Libya war idea is especially intriguing, as Libya is half-sunk in chaos after the Nato 'humanitarian bombing' that killed tens of thousands

Egypt is starving with tens of millions of people, and no money or oil ... next-door Libya has very few people, lots of oil to sell ... and Egypt and Libya were united before in the 'United Arab Republic'

Egypt trying to take over Libya to feed its starving people using the oil revenue money, does make sense

That may be.  But the bombing of the Sudanese weapons factory was a good thing - not a bad thing.  Had the weapons been delivered to Gaza (the supposed delivery point) and fired into Israel, there would have been retaliation from Israel and innocents in Gaza might have been killed inadvertantly.  This raid prevented all of that.

Notice that whoever bombed the factory was able to do so without attacking Sudan, without starting a war with Sudan.  This reality should inform future comments vis-a-vis Israel and Iran.  But I'm sure they won't.

And I find it interesting that, so far in these comments, nothing has been said about the thing that has caused the most consternation - as reported by other news outlets: the fact that the local radar stopped working shortly before the bombs fell.

The rockets being fired at Israel are coming from somewhere.  The (former) plant in Sudan seems a good candidate.  If the Iranian Revolutionary Guards did in fact build and operate the plant to supply Hamas with rockets to fire at Israel then Israel was within its rights.

It is a fact that the U.S. has experimented on its citizens in the past.  Agreeing that this is true in no way says a thing about whether the U.S. and Sudan governments are equally negligent towards their citizenry.  Two separate issues.  Agreeing with the first point does not automatically mean agreeing with the second point.  Crockett, you know that - so I can only assume you are trying to be slick here.  Don't.  It doesn't become you.

Sudan's supposed negligence involved the proximity of civilians to a munitions plant which was bombed by Israel. In the case I cited above it has recently been revealed that the US Army purposely sprayed carcinogenic chemicals on American civilians in their own homes without their knowledge as an experiment. Does that help you decide which act is the more evil?

And that includes the US. You don't think they've recalled the operatives who have provided Israel with US intelligence for decades, do you?
