Brzezinski: U.S. should forcibly stop IAF flying over Iraq to reach Iran
Brzezinski: U.S. should forcibly stop IAF flying over Iraq to reach Iran
Haaretz
21 September 2009

Zbigniew Brzezinski, the former national security adviser to U.S. President Jimmy Carter, said on Sunday that U.S. forces should forcibly prevent the Israel Air Force from reaching Iran to strike its nuclear facilities.

In an interview with news Web site the Daily Beast, Brzezinski said that the U.S. forces were "not exactly impotent little babies," saying that Israel forces have "to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?"

When asked what should the United States do in case Israeli jets fly over Iraq anyway, the former national security advisor said the United States would "have to be serious about denying them that right."

"That means a denial where you aren't just saying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them," Brzezinski said, adding that Israeli fighters would then "have the choice of turning back or not."

Brzezinski added that "No one wishes for this but it could be a Liberty in reverse," referring to the IDF attack on the U.S.S. Liberty during the Six Day War, which Israel claims was a case of mistaken identity.

The incident was investigated by inquiry commissions in both Israel and the United States, and both concluded that it had, indeed, been a tragic error.

Late last year, Brzezinski had told Haaretz that Israel could do harm to its relations with the United States if it insisted on lobbying Washington for an American military strike on Iran.

Brzezinski told Haaretz: "One [piece of] advice that I would give the Israeli government is not to engage in this campaign for an American attack on Iran, because I don't think America is going to attack Iran, and if it did, and the consequences would be disastrous."

On Sunday Russian President Dmitry Medvedev told CNN that Israeli President Shimon Peres told him that Israel would not launch an attack on Iran..

The Russian president described such an attack as "the worst thing that can be imagined." He said Peres made the comment at a meeting in the Russian resort of Sochi in August.

"When he visited me in Sochi, Israeli President Peres said something important for us all: 'Israel does not plan to launch any strikes on Iran, we are a peaceful country and we will not do this'," Medvedev said in the interview, which was recorded on Tuesday, according to a Kremlin transcript.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

(Natalya Kolesnikova/Reuters)

President Medvedev said he had been given assurances by Shimon Peres, Israel's President

Israel has promised the Kremlin that it will not launch an attack on Iran, according to President Medvedev.

Publicly at least, Israeli leaders have always refused to rule out the possiblity of a military strike against Iran's nuclear programme if it refuses to stop enriching uranium. But Mr Medvedev said that Shimon Peres, his Israeli counterpart, gave such an assurance during a meeting in the Black Sea resort of Sochi last month.

In an interview with CNN aired today, Mr Medvedev said an Israeli assault would be "the worst thing that can be imagined", leading to “a humanitarian disaster, a vast number of refugees, Iran’s wish to take revenge and not only upon Israel, to be honest, but upon other countries as well”.

He added: “But my Israeli colleagues told me that they were not planning to act in this way and I trust them.”

Mr Peres visit came the day after Russian forces boarded a cargo ship allegedly carrying S-300 surface-to-air missiles to Iran.

In a mystery that has yet to be cleared up, the Arctic Sea was hijacked before passing through the English channel. Russia has denied that it was carrying arms.

After the meeting, Mr Peres told journalists Mr Medvedev had promised to reconsider a contract to sell S-300s to Iran.

“When he visited me in Sochi, Israeli President Peres said something important for us all: ’Israel does not plan to launch any strikes on Iran, we are a peaceful country and we will not do this’,” Mr Medvedev said.

Asked about the possible delivery of S-300s, Mr Medvedev said that Russia had the right to sell defensive weapons to Iran.

“Our task is not to strengthen Iran and weaken Israel or vice versa but our task is to ensure a normal, calm situation in the Middle East,” he said.

On Western calls for sanctions on Iran, he said such moves were often ineffective and action should only be taken as a last resort. “Before speaking of applying additional sanctions, we should make full use of the existing possibilities,” he said. “We should be absolutely confident that we have no other option.”

Analysts have been watching for Russian concessions on Iran after the White House on Thursday cancelled plans to site elements of a missile shield in Poland and the Czech Republic, but CNN interviewed Mr Medvedev on Tuesday, before the announcement.

The Russian President said that he was hopeful Moscow’s relations with Washington would improve under President Obama and described the chances of an agreement on a new treaty to reduce strategic nuclear weapons by year-end as“quite high".

But he was critical of mixed messages coming from the White House. Shortly after Obama hailed a “reset” of ties during a visit to Moscow in July, the US Vice-President Joe Biden said Russia’s shrinking population base and “withering economy” would push it to make deals on nuclear arms reductions.

“This is simply an incorrect move,” Mr Medvedev said. “Because while having only started to develop relations... with the Russian Federation, at the same time to strain them in such a way is to make a mistake”.

And from three days earlier:


Israel 'will attack Iran this year' if West does not cripple Tehran with sanctions
Israel will attack Iran's nuclear facilities before the end of the year if the West has not launched an attempt to destroy the regime with crippling sanctions, a former senior defence official has claimed.


By Damien McElroy, Foreign Affairs Correspondent

Ephraim Sneh, Israel's deputy defence minister until 2007, said a nuclear-armed Iran was an unacceptable threat to Israel. No Israeli government could put its faith in President Barack Obama's efforts to bring Tehran to the negotiating table over its nuclear programme, he said.

"The Israeli government is the only entity that is responsible for the existence of the Jewish people," he said. "Iran has been explicit in its hostility to Israel time and again. They would use these weapons.

"We believe that Iran has the capacity and the delivery capability for nuclear weapons. They can proceed to production. We have got two months to act - before the end of 2009."

Iran and the major world power are to start talks on the stand off over its nuclear programme, which stands in violation of United Nations resolutions, on Oct 1. Mr Obama's offer to talk to Iran without pre-conditions has made Israel nervous that Tehran will use detente as a cover to complete its drive for an atom bomb.

"If Iran gained the bomb it would trigger a regional arms race with Saudi and Egypt quickly obtaining weapons," he said. "We would be living next to three Pakistans."

Mr Sneh believes Iran's regime has been weakened by the pro-democracy uprising in the aftermath of the disputed presidential election. It could be brought to its knees by sanctions curtailing imports of petrol, the sale of spare parts for energy production, freezing its banks out of the global monetary system and banning cross-border investment.

But Israeli society would change irrevocably if the cleric-led government acquired the bomb. "We are not looking for adventures but we cannot take the risk," said Mr Sneh.
