Exclusive: Amid new Iranian threat, Israel connects to America’s Ballistic Missile Early Warning System
Israel requested the hook-up to the BMEWS for early warning to defend itself against Iranian missile attack. Tuesday, April 15, Iran’s deputy C-in-C Mohammad Reza Ashtiani threatened to eliminate Israel from “the scene of the universe” if it launches a military attack on the Islamic state.

DEBKAfile’s military sources report the system operates from three global centers – the US Thule Air Base in Greenland, where the 12th Space Warning Squadron is located; the Clear Air Force Station in Alaska and the British RAF long-range radar station at Fylingdales, Yorkshire, in England.

This is the third time Israel has been connected to the BMEWS. The first was in 1991 before the first Gulf War and the second in 2003 before the US invasion of Iraq. Then, Israel feared Iraqi missile attack, which indeed materialized in 1991. Now, US military sources interpret the request as signifying Israel’s sense of the need to prepare for an Iranian missile attack in the not-too-distant future.

Such an attack could develop from a US or Israeli strike against Iran, or any war situation involving Israel, Syria or Hizballah. Tehran might also stage a pre-emptive strike if early intelligence was received of an impending US or Israeli attack on Iran, Syria or Hizballah.

These sources stressed that Iran could even decide to lash out against Israel after the event in reprisal for an American assault, not necessarily on its nuclear sites but on Revolutionary Guards bases involved in directing, arming and training militias for attacks on US troops in Iraq. In such a contingency, Tehran could decide to hit back at US bases and strategic sites in the Persian Gulf and Middle East at large, including Israel.

The hook-up to the US early warning system will give Israel a better chance to prepare its Arrow and Patriot missile defense systems – and the US to prepare its own Israel-based Patriot batteries - in good time to ward off an Iranian missile attack. The BMEWS would start beaming data on an incoming Iranian missile at the launching stage and before it is airborne.

American military sources have no doubt that if an Iranian missile barrage targets Tel Aviv, Israel will counter with a missile attack on Tehran or Damascus.

WTF?

What sort of circular logic do these cunts use?

Iran said it would act in retaliation IF attacked.

This is taken as justification for Israel to increase it's capability?

Who here is the aggressor?

Everyone is getting ready for something and pointing the finger at someone else.

Man, I am going to be happy when this is all over. Of course, I'm gonna have to quit civilization pretty soon unless the DOOM comes.

Thanks for that...

Debka is unreliable at best, it's hard to tell real news from fiction on that site, they mix the two often...

bump for an answer:

You tell me that if I try to hit you, you'll defend yourself. I use this as justification for buying a gun.

What does this tell you about my intentions?

it seems to be a fore gone conclusion that it is no longer a matter of 'if' but rather 'when'

Just the logical first step to being connected to America’s Ballistic Missile LAUNCHING System.
