  • The Israeli military is preparing itself to launch a massive aerial assault on Iran's nuclear facilities within days of being given the go-ahead by its new government.

    Among the steps taken to ready Israeli forces for what would be a risky raid requiring pinpoint aerial strikes are the acquisition of three Airborne Warning and Control (AWAC) aircraft and regional missions to simulate the attack.

    Two nationwide civil defence drills will help to prepare the public for the retaliation that Israel could face.

    The California figures contrasted with a national jobless rate of 8.5 percent in March. The new jobless figures are the highest since records first began to be released in 1976.

  1. Unless something changes–big time–in Sacramento, our economy will only get worse. Ahnold is very much responsible for this situation–he turned his back on his early promises and wimped out. His performance is far worse than Grey Davis and he should resign or be recalled. But unless there is someone competent to replace him (McClintock), it won’t make any difference.

    We’re screwed.

  2. Israel isn’t likely to go ahead with it unless they get a green light from the Obama administartion. Does that mean Obama supports the attack on Iran?

  3. Schwarzie should go, if he has any dignity at all, and Israel should go for it because they aren’t getting anything but grief from this current administration.
