The U.S. Military Thinks Israel Might Strike Iran Using The Dangerous 'Entebbe Option'
Israel's likely inability to destroy Iran's nuclear capacity in a single stroke, even in a best-case scenario, has led U.S. war planners to speculate about a second, out-of-the-box, and extremely dangerous military option: what they're calling an "Iranian Entebbe."

In this scenario, the Israelis would forego a massed air attack and instead mount a high-risk but high-payoff commando raid that would land an elite Sayeret Matkal (special forces) unit outside of Iran's enrichment facility at Fordow, near Qom. The unit -- or other elite units like it -- consisting of perhaps as many as 400 soldiers, would seize Iran's enriched uranium for transport to Israel.

The operation's success would depend on speed, secrecy, simplicity, and the credibility of Israeli intelligence. According to the Pentagon war planner, Israel's access to intelligence on Iranian military and policy planning is unprecedented, as is their willingness to share it with U.S. intelligence officials.

The Israeli unit would be transported on as few as three and perhaps as many as six C-130 aircraft (which can carry a maximum of 70 troops) that would be protected by a "swarm" of well-armed F16Is, according to the scenario being considered by U.S. military officers. The C-130s would land in the desert near Fordow. The Israeli commandos would then defeat the heavily armed security personnel at the complex, penetrate its barriers and interdict any enemy units nearby, and seize the complex's uranium for transport back to Israel. Prior to its departure, the commando unit would destroy the complex, obviating the need for any high-level bombing attack. (Senior U.S. military officers say that there are reports that some of the uranium at Fordow is stored as uranium hexafluoride gas, a chemical form used during the enrichment process. In that case, the material may be left in place when the commandos destroy the complex.)

"It's doable, and they have to be thinking along these lines," the highly placed U.S. military officer said. "The IDF's special forces are the best asset Israel has." That said, "In some scenarios," the U.S. military planner who told me of the potential operation said, "there would be very high Israeli casualties because of nearby Republican Guard divisions. This operation could be quite bloody."

Bloody or not, the Israeli leadership may not be quick to dismiss such an operation, given Israel's history of using such units. Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak are former Sayeret Matkal officers, and recently Israeli Defense Forces head Benny Gantz (himself a Sayeret Matkal veteran) said the IDF had formed an elite special operations "Deep Corps" to strike far inside hostile territory. And, of course, it bears remembering that Netanyahu's brother Yonatan was the sole casualty in Israel's Entebbe operation.

That's some hardcore shit but how does it solve the long term problem? Wouldn't that just buy time? Even if the had success wouldn't the Iranians just go about producing more and then the problem would arise again years down the road?

No way it would fail. I don't consider fail Israel losing lots of Commandos... They'd be supported by f16s and subs. It would take 3 days for Iran to get reinforcements to that area.

If the Iranians were stupid enough to leave all their nuclear power stations only with some guards then they deserve it. if they properly defended them then it will be a blood bath and Iranians will be all over the Israelis, and the Israelis will end up the stupid ones.

I think, of the three options, the one the Pentagon seemed most afraid of was the Regime Decapitation option.....

Because that was the option that was most likely to induce Iran to attack US assets in the region and drag US into a war.....

BUT then, why have the placed so many assets in the area??

Hell they've even attacked the US(USS Liberty) and have killed Americans in many other terror plots carried out by Zionists posing as Jews.

Guess we'll see what the outcome is if it happens but if I was planning it I'd have to know that the aircover could stop a brigade size rapid reaction force from engaging a lighty armed special forces unit, even one of this size.

Otherwise it could be more Raid on Arnhem then raid on Entebbe.
