1 to 600 ratio

1 to 600 would be the ratio of Israeli missiles to Iranian missiles needed to win a war between the two.

Iran says it has 600 Shihab-3 missiles aimed and primed to hit Israel if either Iran or Syria is attacked.

Earlier Monday, an Iranian Web site affiliated with the regime reported that 600 Shihab-3 missiles were pointed at targets throughout Israel and would be launched if either Iran or Syria were attacked.

“Iran will shoot 600 missiles at Israel if it is attacked,” the Iranian news Web site, Assar Iran, reported, saying such a barrage would “only be the first reaction.”

According to the report, dozens of locations throughout Iraq being used by the US Army have also been targeted. The Shihab missile has a range of 1,300 km. and can reach anywhere in Israel.

The Olmert administration seems unfazed.

Israeli officials are treating Iran’s latest claims that it has 600 Shihab-3 missiles aimed at targets throughout the country the same way it treated Teheran’s claims last month to have crossed a key nuclear threshold: by listening carefully, but not believing everything they hear.

“We don’t believe all the Iranian rhetoric. I don’t even think the average Iranian believes it,” a senior official in the Prime Minister’s Office said of the Monday claim. “We are not flippant and are watching carefully, but that doesn’t mean we believe everything they say.”

The official said that few in the world believed Iranian claims earlier this month that they had 3,000 centrifuges in place and running – a process that could produce enough enriched uranium for an atom bomb within a year.

Perhaps that’s because Israel really only needs to send one—or two at most—missiles into Iran. From that special store, the ones packed with the extra punch that Dimona gives them.

I’m just sayin’. It’s a 1-to-600 advantage, if you ask me.

    The Diamona advantage won’t last forever, Israel has it now; And while no nation should use such a resource without strong cause, I hope Jerusalem remember’s that this is one advantage whose exceedingly high value seems to be eroding.

    Looking at what has happened to other nation’s that tried to destory God’s credibility (for he has made promises concerning Israel,) I would say that North Korea, Syria, and Iran are the nation’s in trouble, not Israel. Because countries that have tried this in the past have *always* been turned to scrap.

    I think it’s obvious to any rational observer that North Korea had delivered nuclear material and something was happening at that “agricultural research station.” Or at least, that something was going to happen. Something did. The whole place was made too radioactive to grow anything for a very long time.

    One thing more; It’s not Iran whose destruction is certain, it’s Syria’s; Particularly for the people who live in and around Damascus.

    Because Isaiah wrote that this city would be utterly destroyed — or something very close to that.

    And as I read the text, it seems to me that this happens because they will have made war on Israel foolishly and without cause.

    I would not say that Israel has a missile advantage over Iran right now. Moreover, the process Iran employs to make nuclear weaponry fuel may be anal compulsive but it is also relatively low-tech for nuke work and Iran has supplies of uranium bearing shale.

    If the US, its European allies (if they still have balls) and Israel do not act soon, I am afraid that there will be a general nuclear war across the Middle East. Everybody loses.

    It’s pretty clear that we’re going to see nuclear weapons used in the Middle East in the next ten years. It’s obvious to me that it’s better if it’s just a few of them going off in Iran rather than a few of them going off in Israel and a lot in Iran and Syria, but maybe I’m missing something.

    If Carter had dropped a quick nuke on Tehran back in 79, the beginning of “peace in the Middle East” would have been a fond memory instead of a distant hope…

    Maybe the time has come in World History to do the job G-d gave Joshua that he didn’t finish…
