For awhile now, tensions have been high between Israel and Iran, so we were wondering what would happen if Iran and Israel went to war?
Iran and Israel: Comparing military machines
"Israel, the US, and some European powers have alleged that Iran aims to build nuclear weapons to complement its conventional arms, but Tehran says its current programme is for peaceful, civilian purposes."
International Sanctions on Iran
"The United States, United Nations, and European Union have levied multiple sanctions on Iran for its nuclear program since the International Atomic Energy Association (IAEA), the UN's nuclear watchdog, found in September 2005 that Tehran was not compliant (PDF) with its international obligations."
With Homegrown Technology, Israel Becomes Leading Arms Exporter
"One byproduct of the recurring battles between Israel and its Arab neighbors is that Israel has developed a homegrown weapons industry that addresses its very specific needs."
Questioning Israel's nuclear ambiguity policy
"Israel's decades-long policy of deliberate ambiguity about its weapons of mass destruction (WMD) programme is being challenged more than ever before, by the international community and by voices within the Israeli society."
