Three years ago MER alone reported the Israelis had fitted their recently received and German-financed-built submarines with nuclear missiles. Only now, as the Israelis prepare to strike Iran and probably want to obliquely warn all of their capabilities to quickly destroy far and wide, is the 'corporate establishment media' reporting this very significant development.
When it came to Iraq (and now Iran) the Americans are insisting these major countries cannot develop any major weapons systems. When it comes to Israel, the Americans have not only looked the other way, they have actively helped the Israelis, financed the Israelis, armed the Israelis, and blocked all international attempts to prevent the Israelis, from developing a substantial nuclear capability which now includes hundreds of bombs that can be delivered by front-line troops, long-range missiles, and submarines.
Oh yes, a few years ago now MER also reported on the very secret yet very substantial biological and chemical weapons systems the Israelis have developed and are also now ready to use.
