An Englishman in Israel Responds to Iranian Nuclear Crisis
I knew this was the time to get two boxes.
Still in preview mode, the not-yet-published IAEA report on
is reported to include solid evidence that Iran 's
nuclear program goes well beyond medical research and power generation, and is
actually to produce nuclear weapons. The obvious target for these is us, Iran . Israel
Increasing probably scenarios include that
will soon launch a tactical attack on Iranian nuclear facilities; Israel
would likely respond with massive ballistic missile bombardments on Iran ;
Hamas in Israel and Hezbollah in Gaza ,
perhaps even Lebanon ,
would all join in and blast us with literally tens of thousands of long range
missiles. Unconventional warheads, such as gas and biological weapons are quite
likely to be used. Hezbollah is planning to infiltrate the northern border and capture
whole towns. Syria
For us in Bet Shemesh, we'd be in the thick of the missile debris.
I have no influence on
defence policy, much less Israel 's.
I'm not even in the army. Iran
I'm an arm-chair target.
There is one response that every Englishman knows, tried and tested over centuries, for any and every apparently insurmountable crisis.
A nice cup-a-tea.
In my visit to the local corner store, I knew THIS is the time to buy two boxes of PG Tips English Tea Bags.
