Report: Iran Would Suffer Up to 20 Million Casualties in Nuclear War With Israel. An estimated 16-20 million Iranians would die in a nuclear war with Israel, according to a report issued by a respected Washington think tank. The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) also estimates that between 200,000 and 800,000 Israelis would be killed, the Jerusalem Post reported.
The report, which is theoretical and based on limited verified knowledge of Israel's and Iran's nuclear capability, paints a bleak picture for both nations. It estimates that a nuclear war would last approximately three weeks and ultimately end with the annihilation of Iran, based on Israel's alleged possession of sophisticated and powerful nuclear weapons.The report does not predict the number of deaths due to nuclear fallout. It lists possible targets for an Iranian strike as Tel Aviv and Haifa, while the list of probable targets in Iran includes Tehran and Tabriz.
You know from my past stories on the subject that I am hoping nuclear war in the middle east will be avoided because it would at the very least render the middle east and its assets off limits for the rest of the world due to the nuclear fall out! 20 million dead Iranian's and 800,000 dead Israeli's is far too rosy and would be just the tip of the iceberg. No one seems to care about the dire state the planet is already as it becomes increasingly obvious that countries are now willing to chance mutual destruction for God and destruction of perceived enemies. Nuclear war between Israel and Iran whether Iran had the weapons or not would drag in the US (willingly if Bush is in I'm afraid) on the side of Israel and Russia and China rushing to the aid of their ally Iran. Even that sounds too rosy. you know from my past line of stories that Bush need war to further his idea of a one Government War.
