Is it possible that the war in the Middle East could eventually go nuclear? If the fighting could have been limited to just Israel and Hamas, I think that there would have been a zero percent chance of Israel using nuclear weapons.
But now it appears that Hezbollah, Syria, Iran and potentially other parties are likely to get involved too, and that means that Israel will literally be fighting a war of national survival.
If it gets to a point where the Israelis think that they could potentially be overrun by their enemies, they aren’t going to leave their most powerful weapons on the shelf.
At this point, everyone knows that Israel has nukes. According to Wikipedia, it has been estimated that Israel currently possesses somewhere between 80 and 400 warheads…
The State of Israel is widely believed to possess nuclear weapons. Estimates of Israel’s stockpile range between 80 and 400 nuclear warheads, and the country is believed to possess the ability to deliver them in several methods, including by aircraft, as submarine-launched cruise missiles, and via the Jericho series of intermediate to intercontinental range ballistic missiles. Its first deliverable nuclear weapon is thought to have been completed in late 1966 or early 1967; which would make it the sixth country in the world to have developed them.
And it appears that some Israeli leaders have been thinking about potentially using this arsenal. When asked about Hezbollah entering the war, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that the terror group will be hit “with a force it cannot even imagine” if it does so…
Hezbollah will make “the mistake of its life” if it goes to war with Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned during a visit with soldiers near the country’s northern border with Lebanon.
“If Hezbollah decides to enter the war” the IDF hit it with such strength that “it will long for the Second Lebanon War,” Netanyahu said. It will be hit “with a force it cannot even imagine” with devastating consequences for both the terror group and Lebanon which hosts it, he said.
Other than using nukes, how could Israel produce such an outcome? Fighting Hezbollah would truly be a nightmare scenario for the Israeli government. Hezbollah possesses at least 130,000 missiles, and they are far more powerful and far more sophisticated than the missiles that Hamas has been using.
Can you imagine the horrors that we would witness if thousands of those missiles started raining down on Tel Aviv and Jerusalem? This is not something that Israel wants. But the Israeli government knows that Hezbollah will almost certainly enter the war once the IDF goes into Gaza, and so there had been talk of conducting a pre-emptive strike to take out those missiles before they could be launched…
The Israeli government is coming under growing pressure from security establishment hawks to launch a pre-emptive strike on Hezbollah in Lebanon – but is facing strong opposition from the US, which fears a two-front war would risk igniting a major regional conflict. (READ MORE)
The Tribulation is commencing…
Please repent, carry your cross daily and follow me for whoever desires to save his life will lose it but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it and then you get a break.
