Video: Raid on the Reactor

This is a five-part video from 2007 that tells the story of Israel's 1981 raid on the Iraqi nuclear reactor. It's an amazing story. In this first part, note the parallels between what was being said about Saddam Hussein's Iraq in the early 1980's and what is being said about Khatami's and Ahmadinejad's Iran today. Eerie, isn't it? Note what George Schultz (Secretary of State at the time) has to say about Iraq's intentions. Just like today, isn't it?

Let's go to the videotape (Hat Tip: Masha via NY Nana).

Here's Part 2. The Mossad is pretty efficient, isn't it? You'll also hear how the IAF dropped the wing tanks. Sound familiar? It should. Let's go to the videotape.

Here's Part 3. Note that they didn't train over the Mediterranean then. Amazing that the aircraft were defenseless, isn't it? Let's go to the videotape.

Here's Part 4. By the way, for those of you who are Jewish, this was the eve of the Jewish holiday of Shavuot. Note that there is some luck here too. We'd call it God's will. Boys will be boys? Heh. Note that Bush 41 and Baker were furious. Not surprising, is it? Let's go to the videotape.

Here's the final part. Will this happen again in Iran? Will Netanyahu be another Begin? Stay tuned. Let's go to the videotape.

History would have been different in 1991, wouldn't it?

Thanks for the hat tip, Carl. I was just incredulous when I watched the videos.

I cannot even begin to imagine what might have been if Israel had not done what it did.

'History would have been different in 1991, wouldn't it?'

That is exactly what I thought.

Carl, shalom. Is there anyway you can also include the links to videos you post (hyperlinks, or the like), as sometimes, for whatever reason, the videos don't open in my browser, and I am not able to find them elsewhere.
