Nothing To See Here, As Usual

Secret Cooperation: Israel Deploys Nuclear Weapons on German-Built Submarines

"Germany is supplying the Israeli Navy with submarines that are fully capable of being fitted to carry cruise missiles with nuclear-warheads, Spiegel reports. Thus, if Israel does indeed have any such missiles, it could deploy them immediately.

­The extensive military deal suggests that German shipyards are to supply Israel with six Dolphin-class diesel-electric submarines, four of which have already been delivered.

"The Germans can be proud to have secured the existence of Israel for many years," Israeli defense minister, Ehud Barak, told Spiegel."

This is hardly news nor has it been secret cooporation. What gets me is this widespread pretending that nobody knows if the shitty little terror entity has nukes or not, when everyone knows it's had them since the sixties. This article is from nine years ago:

Israel Arming German-Supplied Subs With Nukes - 10/12/2003

"Israel has modified American-supplied cruise missiles to carry nuclear warheads on submarines, giving the Middle East's only nuclear power the ability to launch atomic weapons from land, air and beneath the sea, according to senior Bush administration and Israeli officials."

So what's the purpose of bringing this up again now?
I can think of two - saber rattling or preparing us for the inevitable insanity by the psychos in power in Israel.
