The US Air Force has sent six F-15 fighter jets to an Israeli airbase for a temporary deployment that will involve joint drills with the Israeli Air Force (IAF) as the two countries continue to step up military cooperation.
The F-15s are being sent to the Nevatim Airbase in southern Israel under US Air Forces Central Command (AFCENT) as part of a program that deploys US aircraft to allied bases instead of US ones.
According to The Times of Israel, the IAF said that the F-15s would participate in exercises with Israel’s fleet of F-35 stealth fighters this week that will simulate strikes “deep inside enemy territory,” suggesting the drills will simulate attacks on Iran.
The US and Israel held joint aerial exercises over the Mediterranean Sea that simulated bombing on Iran as tensions between Washington and Tehran are soaring. The drills and the deployment of F-15s to Israel come after the head of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) visited Washington and said after the trip that joint US-Israeli military operations would be “significantly expanded.”
IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi also said he was pressing the US to step up plans for joint attacks on Iran. While the Pentagon admitted in its recent Nuclear Posture Review that Iran is not trying to build a nuclear weapon, US officials have been threatening military action as a “last resort” to prevent Tehran from acquiring a bomb.

NO war to big, NO war to small. ‘Merica is there. Cha-ching for the MIC!
When it comes to the “cha-ching” there is an endless flow when it comes to stupidity even more so…
America has become a non culture with enemies it cannot convince me to hate. I am a war resistor. I resist the Hollywood hate mongers and their Wall Street money changers.
So do I Garrett, so do I.
Amerikkka is convincing me to hate Amerikka, Garrett.
I know. It’s a drag.
Biden has nothing better to do than to look for some cause to start another war. That way the people don’t talk about his domestic failures.
What is it Iran could possibly do to not get attacked by the two monster states Israel and USA. How evil they are.
It also involved The new BRIC countries versus the dollar.
Well, Renate, maybe the Iranians could give all their land to IsraHelli squatters…
This made me laugh out loud. thank you Gypsy. 🙂
Maybe gifting all the rights to Iranians natural mineral resources to Israel might work, they could also throw in accepting total liability in case of damage caused by industrial accidents.
The Zionist war on Iran will have to be nuclear or nuclear backed, and the response of Iran/Russia/China will have to be of the same character. It stands to be the nuclear war we’ve been slouching toward since Hiroshima, assuming Ukraine doesn’t get there first.
I have to agree TC.
This is obviously an admission that US will be involved in a possible Israeli attack on Iran…! Have they thought of Iran retaliation not only on Israel via its missiles, Hezbollah and Hamas, but also on US military bases in Persian Gulf…?!
Have they thought? They are demented psychopaths, they are very limited people, intellectually and mentally. They should be kept in an asylum since they are so dangerous.
I’ve said it before, I’m making a big bowl of popcorn when Iran mines the Straits of Hormuz 😁
Make enough popcorn to last for a week, because that is how it will take to the US Navy to clear the mines. Of course that is assuming the US Navy does not destroy the Iranian mine layers first.
While getting shelled by Iranian fighter jets of course!
Might take a bit longer than that unless Amerikkka/Israel steps in with nukes, in which case Russia and China will respond with their own 😁
What Iranian fighter jets? Iran’s air force is small and mostly outdated. The US Navy would shoot them down with little or no effort.
Thank you for making me laugh Gypsy! What is your favorite popcorn recipe?
I’m here to spread happiness, Donna 😉
lol, lol, lol…………….
I’m a sucker for kettle corn Donna 🙂
Of course US and Israel have a plan to deal with the Iran’s missile threat.
Okay good Kenneth, I am going to take the bait…
What is the plan?
Bomb the missile sites early and often. Protect the air bases with anti missile systems. Use the Patriot missiles to protect high value targets. Use the look down/shoot down F-15 radars to target cruise missiles and drones with air to air missiles. Send the Israel tanks units into Syria and Lebanon to take out the short range terrorist operated missiles. And than there is the electronic warfare and who knows what the US/Israel can do in that space.
Of course some of the missile will still hit their targets. Nothing is perfect in war.
One thing that missile proponents forget, is that they are a one use weapon. On the hand, an F-18 can deliver the same firepower which conventional bombs as 10 missiles. And unless the F-18 is shot down, it can and will come back the next day and the next day and the day after that.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts and also knowledge. You obviously have a keen mind… What if Iran has nukes and uses them?….
Yep! Keen mind!
A looney for the toonies.
That is a whole new ball game. Of course the idea in attacking Iran is too prevent them from having nukes. But if Iran has nukes, Israel being so small would be destroyed.
You DO realize that Iran has nuclear-equipped allies, do you not?
Hell , it wouldn’t surprise me if Kim Jong decided to join the party.
There is no country that will come in and fight for Iran against the US and Israel. Iran has no real allies.
Biden needs more wars, a great start for Netanyahu and Biden, one can’t ask for more.
Damn, we have some very fine women on this site!
Don’t we Donna?
Fine intellects and fine bodies as well! 😉
Biden is super nuts.
If we are going to keep messing about with Iran, this could become a cataclysmic event…
And it will to a very large extent be Iran’s doing.
I very much enjoy our give and take Jake oh it rhythms, lol but, but, but….I have always advocated for peace, not war… I also believe the guilty are many…
Do these fools assume that Iran couldn’t take out Tel Aviv?
Iran may not have nukes but they have other sophisticated weaponry. Plus their allies Russia and China DO.
But hey, that’s what the Ziochristians are wishing for; the demolition of the Middle East so their “ second coming” will occur and they’ll be swept up into their nonexistent heaven.
Very well said Gypsy!
Iran can not take out Tel Aviv without nukes. Iran does not have enough long range missile to accomplish that and they have no air force. China and Russia would never transfer nuclear weapons to Iran. Why would they take such an uncreditable risk?
Why wouldn’t they?
Simple, it makes the transferring nation a target for nuclear attack from Israel if Iran would use the transfer nukes against Israel.
The US needs to hire some psychics to make these kinds of determinations.
“Simulate” is a practice run…
Right Donna. “Wars games” is a euphemism for “War practice”.
I am a totally anti-nuclear chick but under these circumstances, I must admit, I hope that Iran is armed to the teeth…
They are… Remember 7-8 years ago when the fifteen year-old Iranian computer hacker landed the newest and best US spy drone? I saw the picture. The drone was super engineered and almost sculpturally aerodynamic. The US said, “Give it back.”
“It’s already been taken apart,” Iran responded.
No hostile warship can get closer than somewhere near a thousand miles of Iran. It is said to have the strongest coastal defenses in the world. That is why Pentagoners are so anxious to break up Russia and com at Iran from the land. Same story for China.
First break up Russia. It has been guarding Eurasia from western barbarians for 1,000 years. This time the charge will work. Germany and France didn’t do it right. America using Europe can.
Thank you Garret for the details…. 🙂
“No hostile warship can get closer than somewhere near a thousand miles of Iran. It is said to have the strongest coastal defenses in the world” Are you making a joke? What coastal defense do they have? No air force, no navy and just a few antiship missiles.
Why? What good would that do?
Level out the playing field…
It is not a football game.
Is the US prepared to go to WWIII in order to “prevent Tehran from acquiring a bomb”?…
I’m just thinking that this whole situation is going to get a whole lot worse….
Let me see if I’ve got this straight… We’re going to bomb them to make sure they don’t even think about it (the bomb)?…Do they give out prizes for stupid?
Bomb and kill as many as you can to make sure they do not get the bomb?…. Talk about providing incentive………………………………
Let us suppose for a minute or so that Iran does have nuclear capability… Does it occur to any of these dimwitted countries (the US and Israel) that attacking Iran might cause them to use their nukes?
Sounds very much like Amerikkka’s “preemptive strikes” on Iraq in order to take out those invisible WMDs.
