Preparing For The Worst

I’m surprised it took this long to actually start these drills.

Israel will next month stage its first-ever nationwide drill simulating a nuclear and chemical missile attack on its cities, rescue services said Monday.

The exercise was initiated by the army’s homefront corps in the wake of last summer’s war in Lebanon and Iran’s calls for the destruction of the Jewish state and its controversial nuclear programme.

Israel suspects is Iran is aiming to develop an atomic bomb, but Tehran insists its programme is for civilian energy purposes.

The main scenarios which will be simulated are a massive rocket attack on cities as well as a “conventional and non-conventional missile attack,” Magen David Adom rescue services spokesman Yerucham Mandola told AFP.

During the drill — which will include army rescue forces, police, medical and firefighting services — air-raid sirens may be sounded across the entire country.

The Hezbollah militia fired over 4,000 rockets against northern Israel during the war last summer, killing more than 40 civilians and paralysing the region’s industry and economy.

During the 1991 Gulf War, Israeli citizens were equipped with gas masks out of fear of a chemical attack. None of the missiles fired from Iraq against Israel were equipped with chemical warheads.

    This sickens me. HAS THE WORLD GONE UPSIDE DOWN ?!?!? In my opinion Israel should flat out tell Iran and all of her “religion of peaceful neighbors” if one more attack on Israel happens, the dogs of war will be let loose . Prime Minister Olmert is a traitor, a fool, and a bigger threat to Israel than the 7th century mujahadin beetles. I can understand why some Jews are ticked off at America, I really can. 86 million dollars to fatah that will be handed in to the hands of Muslims that will eradicate as many Jews as possible. America always says “Israel show restraint!” SOD RESTRAINT. IF WE AS AMERICA CAN KICK THE LIVING CRAP OUT OF MUSLIM TERRORISTS LIKE CRAP THROUGH A GOOSE, SO SHOULD ISRAEL!!!!!!!!!!!! I am sick and da*ned tired of holding the hand of the enemy (Saudi and the rest of the jihadist vermin) and telling Israel “we are your friends as well.”

    The duplicity of this policy makes me want to vomit. This is not the same America I grew up in. Something has gone horribly wrong. If the enemies of America and Israel desire war, I say bring it too them, and without constraint or remorse. Send them into 1,000 years of darkness. This is a “us or them” issue. Whose gonna pull the trigger first? Us or them?

    I mean, it’s only our very way of life at stake. But who cares. Love the site, best of wishes always.

    Yes it is sickening. I just try to take things in perspective and realize that we are witnessing world history unfold before our very eyes. The next four years will be very very interesting
