Iran + Nukes: What Could Go Wrong? (UPDATED)

(Back after a few days of taking care of affairs. As John Lennon said: Life is what happens just when you were planning something else. Like the following, for example...)

As you've no doubt noticed "The Yammersphere" is all aglow over the Sunday Times' purport of Israeli plans to lay a warm golden glaze on parts of Iran. Well, damn good thing we didn't toss those gas masks moldering in the back of the closet from the last conflagration from the east...
Israel has drawn up secret plans to destroy Iran's uranium enrichment facilities with tactical nuclear weapons.

Two Israeli air force squadrons are training to blow up an Iranian facility using low-yield nuclear "bunker-busters", according to several Israeli military sources.

are useful link dumps.

Update 1: Israel Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev denied the report, saying that
Israel wanted the issue of Iran's nuclear program resolved through diplomacy.
Update 2: But Iran quickly spat back:
"anyone who attacks will regret their actions very quickly."
Them's fightin' words, Clem... But remember: It ain't over, though, till the Dinner Jacket sings.

And speaking of glazing hearts and minds, Ynet News reports on a presumed Jewish group with a website and at-ti-tude, outing the "Jews" who took part in Teheran's recent HoloFest:
"I am sure Iran will welcome them with open arms" the statement continued..."
True, true. If the Times story is accurate, too bad the self-styled observanti didn't just go, umm, whole hog and share the SP 10,000 skin guard with the mullahs.

But before we all start getting all a-jitter an' headin' fer' th' hills, HonestReporting's Media Backspin, quoting colleague Allison Kaplan Sommer, reminds us:

Iran's "point of no return" -- at least according to Mahnaimi's sources -- was supposed to be last March.
