JUST-IN: Azerbaijan Airbases Offered to Israel for Attack on Iran.
Leaked intelligence from two former Azeri military officers with links to serving personnel and two Russian intelligence sources have reported that Baku and Tel Aviv are considering the Azeri bases for military use against Tehran.

A member of the Azeri parliament's foreign affairs committee admitted that Israel would need Baku’s support if it were to attack Iran as it would face a “refuelling” problem if it goes so far as taking the military option.

“I think their plan includes some use of Azerbaijan access,” Rasim Musabayov added. “We have (bases) fully equipped with modern navigation, anti-aircraft defenses and personnel trained by Americans and if necessary they can be used without any preparations.”

There is a large Azerbaijani population in northern Iran which would like to be separated from Tehran and form with the country of Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan, the oil-rich ex-Soviet republic on Iran's far northern border, has, say local sources with knowledge of its military policy, explored with Israel how Azeri air bases and spy drones might help Israeli jets pull off a long-range attack.

Two Azeri former military officers with links to serving personnel and two Russian intelligence sources say that Azerbaijan and Israel have been looking at how Azeri bases and intelligence could serve in a possible strike on Iran.

"Where planes would fly from - from here, from there, to where? - that's what's being planned now," a security consultant with contacts at Azeri defense headquarters in Baku said. "The Israelis ... would like to gain access to bases in Azerbaijan."

Deciphering Iran's Nuclear Intentions

Let's start with what used to be the $64,000 question -- is Iran seeking to acquire nuclear arms? Only the most naïve would continue to believe the Iranian government's claim that it is pursuing a strictly civilian nuclear program for the purpose of energy production. Like its rival, Saudi Arabia, Iran sits on some of the biggest known oil and gas fields in the world. Iran needing cheap energy sources is truly a case of the proverbial "carrying coal to Newcastle."

Already eight years ago, American diplomats noted that nuclear-produced electricity would be several times more expensive than that produced using Iran's known extensive oil and gas sources. Bushehr, Natanz, Arak, and Isfahan are not engaged in producing cheap electricity for the Iranian economy. When one adds the intelligence pulled from sites like Parchin and Tehran's Research Reactor, Lavizan 1 and 2, as well as Ardekan, Fordow, and Lashkar Abad, and listens with even half an ear to the daily rhetoric of the regime, it is abundantly clear that civilian energy production is not the motivating factor driving the Iranian program. Nuclear weaponry, just as former President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani stated in 2001, is the goal sought eagerly by the ayatollahs. Alleged pious fatwas against the use of atomic armaments notwithstanding, the Islamic Republic of Iran seeks nuclear weaponry.

Ali Khamenei looks at atomic weapons and sees the following benefits: 1. An atomic Iran -- like an atomic North Korea -- is unlikely to be invaded by a U.S.-led coalition seeking regime change. 2. Possession of nuclear arms gives the regime a tighter grip on power, enabling it to resist internal opposition and to terrorize its opponents both in and outside the country. 3. Atomic weaponry permits those who seek the imminent return of Imam Mahdi (the Shia Muslim messiah) to initiate cataclysmic warfare with the enemies of Islam that will hasten his arrival and the day of final redemption.

For these three reasons, Iran's current leadership is willing to impoverish the Iranian people and risk war with America and/or Israel. From Khamenei's standpoint, the continued pursuit of nuclear weaponry is a win-win situation: if he gets the weapons, he has immeasurably strengthened his hand and the hand of the radical Islamist "rejectionist" camp in its anti-West, anti-Zionism campaign. If on the other hand Iran is attacked, he has a holy war that guarantees him martyrdom and instant Jannah -- entrance to Islamic heaven, with all the trimmings. For Ali Khamenei, the only thing better than possessing a key to fire nuclear-armed missiles at Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the United States would be the keys to the Grand Mosque, the al-Aqsa Mosque, and the White House.

Re: JUST-IN: Azerbaijan Airbases Offered to Israel for Attack on Iran.
[Azerbaijan's support] is a far cry from the massive firepower and diplomatic cover that Netanyahu wants from Washington. But, by addressing key weaknesses in any Israeli war plan—notably on refueling, reconnaissance and rescuing crews—such an alliance might tilt Israeli thinking on the feasibility of acting without U.S. help.

It could also have violent side-effects more widely and many doubt Azeri President Ilham Aliyev would risk harming the energy industry on which his wealth depends, or provoking Islamists who dream of toppling his dynasty, in pursuit of favor from Israel.

Yet despite official denials by Azerbaijan and Israel, two Azeri former military officers with links to serving personnel and two Russian intelligence sources all told Reuters that Azerbaijan and Israel have been looking at how Azeri bases and intelligence could serve in a possible strike on Iran.
